This App Lets You Fly Unlimited Flights for a Flat Monthly Fee

Love flying? Hate fluctuating air fares? Travel for business constantly or have tons of free time on your hands? There’s lots of reasons to download and sign up to OneGo — a new subscription-based air flight program. The app will allow users to fly an unlimited amount of flights domestically for set monthly fees ranging from $1,500 USD to $2,950 USD, on many major carriers. This means you could theoretically fly every day of the month, round trip, and each fare would be less than $100 USD. While the service currently is limited to economy seats only and is restricted to the continental United States (sorry Alaska and Hawaii) with reservation limits, this new fee-based system could open up the floodgates to more services that could incorporate business/first class, international flights, luggage allowances, cancellations and much more. Check out OneGo’s official website if you’re interested and have safe flights.

The Science of Sleep: learned form the NFL

When the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos take to the gridiron on Sunday for Super Bowl 50, that accomplishment alone will have been more than a sum of passing yards and field goal accuracy. The season itself is a war of attrition. Staying on the active roster is a 24-hour-a-day undertaking involving workouts, sleep and nutrition. Today in our three-part series, we’re sleeping it off.

Regeneration takes a lot of forms these days: cryotherapy, anti-inflammatory foods andrecovery-focused workouts. For too long, sleep, our daily recovery ritual, was overlooked by professional sports teams. “We pay so much attention to things like nutrition, stretching and athletic performance, but when athletes leave the training center and go home at night, we ignore them until they come back the next morning,” says W. Christopher Winter, MD, a neurologist and sleep specialist based in Charlottesville, Virginia. He’s been the go-to sleep guy for dozens of baseball, basketball, hockey and football teams, and now works with the Baltimore Ravens.

More sleep is not always an easy sell. “There’s still a sleep martyr mentality among some of the older coaches who think if you’re sleeping, you’re not working that hard,” Winter says. “We need to create a culture where players can talk to their trainers if they’re not sleeping well and it’s treated like a hurt ankle.”

Some of the expertise he provides is fairly basic. For instance, drinking a six-pack before bed or staying up all night playing video games is bad for sleep. But then things get fun. For instance, circadian rhythm changes as a person ages. Compared with their rookie counterparts who peak later in the evening, older people’s energy peaks in the afternoon or early evening. “Cam Newton is very young, Peyton Manning is super old,” Winter says. “If I were working with Manning, I’d want to determine Peyton’s rhythm and use the two weeks prior to the game to get him read for the later timing. That and the longer timing–the game is usually longer than a typical NFL game–as well as the new time zone. That’s when you can use things such as lighting or exercise to help adjust his circadian sweet spot.”

And it’s not just first-string quarterbacks who need to take this seriously. “There are guys who come into the league from college, abusing their bodies and staying up all night,” Winter says. “If you don’t get your nutrition and sleep together, you’ll be a guy who comes and goes and no one remembers you.”

Winter has advice for us amateurs, too: Just as he recommends teams hold practices and scrimmages during the same time of day they play games, people should train at advantageous times. For instance, if you’re training for a triathlon and race start is 6 a.m., don’t schedule all your swims after work. Like a team on the road, time zones can mess up your sleep and performance. Figure it’ll take you 24 hours to adjust to every time zone you cross. A few days before travel, start adjusting your bed- and wake-up time to your destination to blunt the effects of jet lag. And if your age is closer to Peyton Manning’s than Cam Newton, schedule big meetings earlier in the day, when you’re at your best.

The news of the establishment acknowledgement of N.W.A. comes shortly after furore around the fact that none of the cast were invited to this year’s Academy Awards, let alone nominated. "t means a lot of things. It means that the group’s mark is kind of solidified. It’s all legitimized in a way because the whole music industry has to honor the group in a way" explained group co-founder Ice Cube, "everyone now at this point, no matter how you feel about us, understands what the group actually did and what it means to modern music."

Adrianne Ho’s Sweat The Style Gets to Know Model and Actress Ashley Moore

Adrianne Ho’s Sweat the Style has always got your back when it comes to your next Instagram crush, and its freshest editorial features none other than model and aspiring actress Ashley Moore. The North Carolina native is photographed in sunny Los Angeles wearing HYPEBEAST favorites like Supreme, Palace, Sweat Crew, October’s Very Own, and Alpha Industries.
Get to know the social-medialite below and head over to Sweat The Style for the full interview.
How did you get started in modeling?
I started modeling almost 4 years ago. It wasn’t my plan but others told me I should try it out. So I convinced my mom to let me come to LA for at least two weeks to get signed and if I didn’t sign I would have to move back home to North Carolina. I ended up getting signed a week later to Nous Models, of course I went to visit other agencies but was turned down because of my height. I truly appreciate Nous for believing in me & bringing me on.
We know you are spending most of your time in Los Angeles. Where else have you lived?
I have lived all over. Both of my parents were in the military; so I traveled a lot. Texas, Tennessee, Louisiana, St. Louis, North Carolina twice, & I was born in California Oceanside.
Social media is playing a bigger role in the careers of models as well as the fashion and entertainment industry. Do you have any insight into how that has helped you or hurt your career?
It has definitely changed so much, good & bad. Having a large following helps because if you post they will pay you a crazy rate but also you don’t want your work to be based off of the following you have on IG or Twitter. I’m so much more than that.
What’s the importance of travel to you?
Experiencing different cultures, meeting new people & just seeing something I’ve never seen before. The world we live in is so beautiful & we should see & explore it.
Where would you like to see your career going in the next few years?
I plan on being an actress, that’s my passion & what I’ve always wanted to do.
