Halloween Stories | Feature Story | Pique Newsmagazine

Halloween has always been a time of year that draws out the inner storyteller in all of us. As the shadows grow longer and the chill in the air crispens, we open ourselves up to the mystery of the world, the things we struggle to explain. At its core, Halloween is pure escapism, an opportunity to step outside the rigid confines of our day-to-day selves to inhabit someone—or something—else. It gives us license to explore the darker sides of ourselves we otherwise are reluctant to indulge. And it’s through stories, told around the glow of the flashlight or the crackle of a campfire, that we connect to the things that delight, fright and tantalize us the most. For years now, Pique has shared some of these stories from a host of Sea to Sky writers. This year’s triumvirate of spooky tales range from an idyllic getaway gone wrong, a cook’s own personal kitchen nightmare, and an indifferent cat whose disdain for the family’s newest member underscores a darker purpose. In fact, my wife Patricia is envious of how easily I can drift off. I usually try to fight off slumber in order to give her a head start. With the way I snore, if I’m out first, it’s ga...

New premium Giro Imperial and Empire SLX shoes launched

Giro has today launched two premium shoe models. The Imperial comes with two Boa dials, while the new model Empire SLX updates Giro’s lace-up design with a new, lightweight Syncwire upper, as also used in the Imperial. The most pronounced feature of the Imperial and Empire SLX shoes is their very lightweight, breathable upper with large sections of low stretch mesh. These are thermally welded to polyester reinforcement, for extra strength and support where needed. There’s a third layer thermally welded to these, so that apart from a single seam behind the heel cup, the uppers are seamless. Giro calls this new construction method Synchwire. As well as being comfortable in hot weather, another benefit of the lightweight synthetic upper is that the shoes dry quickly if you get caught out in the rain, plus the absence of seams eliminates the potential for fraying of the stitching and damage to the uppers. Both shoes use an Easton EC90 SLX2 carbon sole unit, with stainless steel cleat plate and replaceable heel pad. The construction makes for a lightweight shoe: we weighed the Imperial shoes at 220g per shoe for a size 42.5, while Giro quotes a weight of 185 grams for the Empire SLX ...

Simultaneous implementation of resistive switching and rectifying effects in a metal-organic framework with switched hydrogen bond pathway

Resistive random-access memory (RRAM) has evolved as one of the most promising candidates for the next-generation memory, but bistability for information storage, simultaneous implementation of resistive switching and rectification effects, and a better understanding of switching mechanism are still challenging in this field. Herein, we report a RRAM device based on a chiral metal-organic framework (MOF) FJU-23-H2O with switched hydrogen bond pathway within its channels, exhibiting an ultralow set voltage (~0.2 V), a high ON/OFF ratio (~105), and a high rectification ratio (~105). It is not only the first MOF with voltage-gated proton conduction but also the first single material showing both rectifying and resistive switching effects. By single-crystal x-ray diffraction analyses, the mechanism of the resistive switching has been demonstrated. In an era of big data, there is an urgent demand for designing high performance memory to address the exponential growth in data storage and computing needs. Resistive random-access memory (RRAM) (1–4) with high- and low-resistance states (HRS and LRS, respectively) to store bits of data, as a booming candidate for the next generation of m...

Without it, life can become inconvenient and stressful. It’s always better to be prepared, and there are many gadgets available that will make your trip more enjoyable. This buying guide includes three of the top RV gadgets that are perfect for any road trip. A: An RV typically has two electrical systems,12V and 120V. The 12V is powered by the battery or batteries and is used for starting the RV as well as other functions like the lights and refrigerator. The 120V system hooks up to a generator or hookup plug and powers the TV and other electrical appliances. A: It depends on individual requirements and how much power is required. Generators can provide instant power without being charged, but they require gas and more maintenance. Solar power is good, but there has to be sunshine available and it needs time to charge. Generators can also power more heavy-duty appliances like microwaves and air conditioners. A: Use LED lights where possible, and do not leave any unnecessary electronics and appliances ru...

We think it’s needless to say that inspiration lives on Instagram. We’re scrolling through our discovery feeds searching for nail art trends and the standard, solid colour mani is taking a back seat along with the faux pas French tips (sorry, not sorry). That’s right, nail art is still having a moment, and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. Finding inspiration is one thing, but finding someone to execute exactly what you want can be tricky. It’s sometimes funny how something as little as the tips of your fingers can matter so much. That being said, being stingy on expertise is something we don’t recommend if you want the best. These salons offer quality no matter what designers you’re after, whether it be chrome, holographic, marble florals, jewels, or negative space. Continually gracing editorial spreads issue after issue, it’s no surprise why Tips Nail Bar is coveted as the absolute go-to nail bar for beauty editors and influencers across the city. Now with two locations in different ends of the city, you’re never too far from expert nail artistry. Are you looking to turn your unique Instagram nail inspirations into a reality? Well, whether you’re looking for intricate ill...

Cellulite is the medical term for lumpy, dimpled flesh that appears primarily on the thighs, buttocks,

Cellulite is the medical term for lumpy, dimpled flesh that appears primarily on the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach. Around 80 percent of women over 20-years-old will get cellulite. It happens when fat pushes through the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing a rippled appearance. Women are more prone to cellulite because of the structure of their connective tissue; men’s connective tissue forms a crisscross pattern whereas women’s appears as vertical columns and, along with having thinner skin, these columns allow more space for fat to push through to the skin’s surface. Unhealthy eating, smoking and drinking can promote cellulite, but it can also be down to factors beyond our control such as genetics or hormonal imbalances. Although there isn’t a permanent solution to banishing the orange peel effect, massagers can do wonders to improve it and there are many kinds, from electric to manual, depending on your preference and spending allowance. Cosmetic physician Sarah Tonks, who runs The Lovely Clinic in Knightsbridge, said: “Massagers will speed up the circulation which will improve the appearance of the skin. They are fine to use but watch your underwear; if the under...
