  • Float Your Boat

    first_imgGear for when getting wet is mandatory or for when getting gear wet is not an option.1. Outdoor Research Sensor Dry PocketPacking portable electronics on a paddling trip can be great, even essential, but getting them wet is a disaster. The Sensor Dry Pocket features a zip top and roll closure for double protection, even when submerged. A clear front and waterproof headphone jack allows you full access to your smart phone or tablet, and with the Velcro straps, you can anchor it anywhere with no anxiety.$35; outdoorresearch.com2. DryCASE DryBUDS SportWhether you are rocking in the whitewater or jamming on the SUP, you can keep the tunes flowing if you take a swim with these waterproof ear buds. An over-the-ear clip keeps them secure during even the most active water pursuits and an extra long 54-inch cord gives you freedom on or in the water. Three size options are included and submersible up to 10 feet, so there is no fear of drowning out the sound of your favorite jams.$35; drycase.com3. Astral Buoyancy The LindaLocal buoyancy experts Astral designed The Linda for the female recreational kayaker. Environmentally friendly, durable foam is preformed for the perfect fit and the vest back features mesh ventilation for those hot days on the water. The mesh back also allows a full recline in high-seat-back recreational kayaks. Throw in large front pockets and you have the perfect PFD for all your paddling adventures.$90; astralbuoyancy.com 4. Pyranha ShivaLacking a true creek boat in the prodigious quiver of boats, Pyranha set out to make the fastest, most nimble boat to run the hardest whitewater and biggest drops on the planet; they may have succeeded. A wider stern, large volume, and progressive rocker make this boat incredibly fast and maneuverable in the water. It’s designed to push the boundaries with the best kayakers in the sport.$1,199; pyranha.com5. Native Watercraft Ultimate 12 BasicThis boat is built for stability, whether sitting or standing and casting. The open design provides comfort and support from flatwater up to Class II, and what it lacks in bells and whistles, it makes up for in a low price. It can also be tricked out with virtually any accessory you can think of so no fish can hide.$799, nativewatercraft.com 6. Howler Bros. Loggerhead LongsleeveSave “Sun’s out, guns out” for the frat guys; protection from the elements is the name of the game when spending a day on the water. Stay covered up without overheating in the Loggerhead. Certified SPF 45 and made from quick wicking and drying material, you can spend all day and night in this shirt. But it’s not all fun and games; you also get handy thumb loops at the cuffs and a stash pocket in the back lined with sunglass cleaning microfiber. From summer spring creeks to beach bonfires, this shirt has your back.$65; howlerbros.com  7. TEVA Fuse-ionTEVA tapped into the mind of their paddling athletes for their latest round of water centric shoes, and the Fuse-ion reflects a return to the soul of water sports – mainly a high performance water shoe you can wear to the bar. The Fuse-ion features an upper that sheds water at a molecular level while TEVA claims its Spider Rubber outsole “will stick to a grease-covered aluminum ramp.” Not bad for a sneaker clone with retro styling out of the 50s. Feeling more casual? The heel folds down so you can slip them on and off with ease so you’ll be ready for drinks in no time.$90; teva.com8. Julbo Dolphin SunglassesNo more need for duct tape straps to prevent your shades from ending up at the bottom of the river, lake, or (gulp!) ocean. If you drop these sunglasses in the drink, they’ll stay afloat until you can get your hands back on them. The Dolphins are made from a low-density material that provides buoyancy and is also super lightweight, so you can rock them all day in comfort. They also feature polarized lenses and a snug, wrap-around style so you can stay cool while spotting fish or running rapids.$100; julbousa.comlast_img read more

  • 3 characteristics of a great team player

    first_imgIt’s not always easy to work with a team. If you’re used to doing your own thing, the transition to a team environment can be an adjustment. If you want to be a great team player, here are three characteristics you should embody…You have to be patient: It would be nice if you knew exactly what to expect from every one of your coworkers, but that’s never the case. Sometimes you’ll find yourself frustrated with coworkers, and that’s completely normal. Keep your cool during stressful situations, because the last thing you want to do is ruin good team chemistry. When frustrating situations arise, take a deep breath and be patient.You have to have confidence: Having confidence at work can be the difference between being stuck in a position for a long time and being quickly promoted. When your confidence starts to rub off on others, you’ll see a lot of success around you.You have to be dependable: Sometimes, coworkers don’t pull their weight. You never want to be that person. You want to be the person everyone can rely on. When you say you’re going to do something, be certain that it gets done. A lack of dependability can damage your team and your business. 23SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Former Oklahoma State offensive lineman turned sports radio host Sam Mayes is not pleased. He went on a crazy rant on Wednesday about how everybody needs to stop being satisfied with this team (which is 4-0 through four games). Among the best quotes …“[The Texas game] looked like a rottweiler trying to hump a football for four quarters.”“I’m sorry that my expectations for my university which I love and give a whole lot of money to every year are higher than having a freaking beer. I’m so sick of that.”The way it ended was unbelievable.“I get people texting me and tweeting me ‘you’re too hard on Oklahoma State’ — double birds to you and everybody else. Go Pokes. I’m out.”AdChoices广告You can listen at the top of the page.[Orange Factor]Audio Playerhttp://www.pistolsfiringblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Sams-message-to-OSU-fans.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img read more
