Key Pieces: Crewneck T-Shirt and corduroy strap back
Editor’s Notes: In case you forgot, here’s how to buy Sean Wotherspoon’s Nike Air Max 1/97 on Air Max Day next week. But, as a complementary offering if you luck out on getting a pair, Nike will be releasing a matching T-Shirt and corduroy strap back.
The tee keeps it simple with its white canvas, while multicolored “Nike Air” branding encompasses the lower portion of the silhouette for a clean contrasting element. The cap on the other hand is comprised of the same materials, and colors just like the hybrid Nike Air Max 1/97.
Priced at $30 USD to $35 USD, you can find both pieces at Nike’s online store soon.
Previously available in yellow or white gold, demand for the Daytona “Rainbow” has risen, as it’s now selling for more than double its original retail on the secondary market. The previous price of the white gold RBOW was around $86,000 USD.
The key features of the new Everose Daytona “Rainbow” consist of its bezel, set with 36 baguette-cut sapphires in a range of graduated colors. Another 11 baguette-cut, colored sapphires are used for the hour markers, while the lugs and crown guards are set with a total of 56 diamonds.
In addition, the new composition for its 40mm case and bracelet are comprised of 18k Everose gold, a proprietary rose gold alloy developed by Rolex that’s resistant to fading. Furthermore, the sub-dials of the chronograph are rendered in pink “Gold Crystals,” a pink gold alloy that has undergone a “crystallization” process to give it a shimmering finish, while inside is the standard 4130 caliber movement found in all Daytonas.
Since the white gold “Rainbow” Daytona was priced at around $86,000 USD, this new edition is expected to retail much higher.
You can learn more about this stunning Cosmograph Daytona “Rainbow” in Everose gold, directly on Rolex’s official website, and view a close-up in the video below.
China is the most populated country in the world, with over 1 billion residents and counting. Last year, the country’s means of transportation was highlighted with bike sharing, where dozens of bike-share companies provided brightly colored rental bicycles.
As The Atlantic reports, the growth of rental bicycles outpaced the demand, and with a number of Chinese cities not up to par with its infrastructure and regulations, most of the country was not prepared to handle the rapid growth of shared bicycles.
Eventually resulting in bicycles piling up and blocking already-crowded streets and pathways, The Atlantic has compiled a variety of stunning imagery showcasing the aftermath, where vast amounts of impounded, abandoned, and broken bicycles have become a familiar sight in many big cities, and essentially collecting dust in enormous vacant lots.
While bike sharing still remains as a very popular source of transportation in China, the growth is expected to progress at a more controlled rate.
In the meantime, enjoy some of the spectacular sights of bike debris in the gallery above. For additional images and the full story, head on over to The Atlantic now.
McDonald’s this week launched a brand new menu item in Australia, a $10.75 Wagyu beef burger, reports news.com.au. Marketed as a “world first limited edition burger,” the sandwich finds an Australian-bred Wagyu beef patty topped with a special sauce, cheese, bacon strips, caramelized onions, lettuce, and tomato, all between a gourmet bun.
Sounds decent, right? Well customers aren’t exactly giving rave reviews for McDonald’s Wagyu beef burger, insisting that it is “dry” and “tastes like cardboard.” Many critics have thus taken to Facebook group Fatties Burger Appreciation Society to express their displeasure.
“Patty cooked to death sometime last week and presented with unmelted cheese, tomato, bacon, a crap ton of wilted lettuce and a smear of nondescript sauce on a dry oversized bun,” says Facebook user David Winch.
Another commenter added, “For a company knowing they need to up their game in the burger market (especially in Australia), Maccas look like they f**ked up with this one. Had one earlier on the back of all the hype. Haven’t had Maccas cardboard burgers for a while but thought I’d give this a shot even though I knew it was gonna be cardboard V2. It’s rubbish.”
“Went to get one but not paying that much for it!,” one person posted. “Go to a proper burger place or cafe in Melb and pay $15 with chips and salad. Had one from Lilydale VIC, unfortunately it was dry as a bone. Sad. Just had it. 1/10.”
Conversely, Director of Supply Chain at McDonald’s Australia, Robert Sexton, told news.com.au that “The launch of this burger is further testament to our commitment to use local suppliers wherever possible.”

Upon taking to Twitter earlier today to interact with his followers, Elon Musk was asked to delete his Facebook pages for Tesla and SpaceX. It didn’t seem to take much convincing, as Musk had them removed right away. Each page had over 2.5 million followers.
The decision to eliminate his companies’ Facebook accounts arrives as the social media platform has been having a fairly rough week due to the ever-circulating #DeleteFacebook initiative. The hashtag was spawned in response to reports that tech firm Cambridge Analytical stole information from over 50 million people on the website without their knowledge. This data allegedly aided in Donald Trump being elected.
In addition, Musk has had issues with Facebook head honcho Mark Zuckerberg in the past, dating back to 2016 when SpaceX’s failed launch killed one of Zuckerberg’s satellites.

The Spice Girls are back and ready to get their Powerpuff Girls on.
Everyone’s favorite British pop group are reuniting for an animated superhero film. The former band-mates will be lending their likeness and voices to the project, which will focus on the Spice Girls’ message of “girl power.”
According to Variety, the film is currently in need of a production partner, and that all five women are “fired up about the idea,” adding, “the Spice Girls are thinking big in terms of a franchise on a global scale. They’re the most successful girl group on the planet. It’s just what Marvel or Disney needs.”
For all of the poor souls who weren’t born in the early ’90s and missed the Spice Girl wave, the band included Sporty Spice (Melanie Chisholm), Baby Spice (Emma Bunton), Scary Spice (Melanie Brown), Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell), and Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham). Similar to their music personas, each character in the film will reportedly have a unique “girl power” that corresponds to her personality.
As of now, there’s no official word on the alleged superhero film project. Let us know if you’re excited for the Spice Girls film in the comments below.
