Nike has unveiled a rework of the iconic Kobe 10 with a new colorway dubbed "Hot Lava." The vibrant sneaker features a mostly tonal mesh upper that oscillates between various shades of red, a black heel counter, and large branding with a stark white Swoosh. To round off the look, the midsole features speckling that resembles volcanic ash fragments, visible underneath a gel-like layer. Opting to utilize the standard Kobe 10 silhouette rather than the Elite Flyknit model, the offering is a striking addition to any collector’s set. It is also worth mentioning that the above image is of a GS pair, but an adult model will definitely be available. The Nike Kobe 10 "Hot Lava" will retail for $180 USD and will be released on December 9 at select retailers.
BERLIN, Germany—When you have a free competitor as hugely popular as Google Translate, your only valid option is to make the most of it.
That’s exactly what translation service ElaN Languages decided to do (with help from JWT Amsterdam) when it created "Taste the Translation." The project’s video shows a chef cooking the same Japanese recipe as translated by ElaN’s team of human experts vs. Google Translate’s automated results.
From the outset, Google’s version shows its faults, which only get more challenging for the chef—and especially for the taste testers.
The project debuted earlier this year but didn’t get much attention beyond the Netherlands until it hit the festival circuit, winning bronze at the Clio Awards and, this week, taking gold in the consumer direct category of the international Epica Awards being judged by advertising journalists (including myself) in Berlin.
For ElaN, the goal isn’t to get people using its free online translator. In fact, it advises visitors to avoid using any free tool for translations that go beyond a few words.
The real value in "Taste the Translation" is in showing the importance of using professional translation for documents where careful phrasing matters. It might prove to be just enough of a nudge to make cheapskate businesses rethink their usual approach of just running content in bulk through free tools like Google Translate.
Otherwise you might end up eating crow, while your customers eat plastic horses.

During my second trip to Paris I spent 27 hours in Montmartre. I visited the Moulin Rouge, walked the streets of Pigalle, took the furnicular up to the Place du Tetre and had my portrait painted, and visited the Musée de l’érotisme. I had the best steak of my life at Les Tantes Jeanne to round out the first day.
I spent 21 hours in Venice, Italy. I took the Alilaguna ferry from Marco Polo Airport to my hotel in Lido. I visited the Piazzo San Marco, had a Bellini at a bar while listening to an orchestra play, tried the "best gelato in Venice" at La Mela Verde, and took a shared serenaded gondola ride through the canals of the city.
