Terry Crews Just Revealed That He’s Addicted to Watching Porn

Actor and outspoken feminist Terry Crews has a "dirty little secret": He’s addicted to online pornography.

In a short video posted on his Facebook page earlier this month, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star opened up about his struggles, claiming that for several years, he secretly watched adult entertainment for hours and hours at a time. 

"Pornography, it really, really messed up my life in a lot of ways," Crews said in the video. "It became a thing where I didn’t tell anybody. I didn’t tell anybody, It was my secret, nobody knew, and that allowed it to grow … I’m going to tell you something: If day turns into night and you are still watching, you’ve probably got a problem — and that was me."

The Nike Air Foamposite One “Fruit Pebbles” is Back in Black

Camping for GS releases isn’t at all commonplace in sneaker culture. Likely because those who can fit said pairs are in school, then there’s the fact that they can’t be out after dark. But last year the Nike Air Foamposite One “Fruity Pebbles” had kids in a frenzy and parents camping for kicks. The shoe […]

Jordan Brand’s Largest Flagship Store in Asia Opens in Hong Kong

Yesterday in Hong Kong’s bustling Central financial district, Jordan Brand held the grand opening event for the largest flagship store to open yet in Asia, Jordan 8 Wellington. Within its 4,000-square-foot interior were multiple tributes to the defining moments in the journey of the world’s greatest basketball player, Michael Jordan, in the form of "The Icons" series — most notably, an art installation created from 29 golden pairs from the entire Air Jordan I-XXX collection. The effect was akin to something of a small museum dedicated to Jordan Brand, and a new pilgrimage site for the most ardent of the brand’s fans.
Also apparent were many elements specific to Hong Kong, such as an art piece created by local artist Michael Lau of the Jumpman logo made from golden statuettes of Michael Jordan in close arrangement. The dazzling result symbolizes solidarity, triumph and fortune, and floats above a silhouette of the Chicago skyline in an homage to Michael Jordan’s roots.
Jordan 8 Wellington will also act as a physical platform for Jordan Brand Services, which combines online service, a retail environment and lifestyle elements to create a brand new customer experience. As the largest Jordan Brand retail store in the Greater China region, every Jordan.com member can enjoy shoe repair and apparel customization services at Jordan 8 Wellington, marking a significant milestone in the development of the Jordan Brand experience. In the near future, Jordan Brand Services will be rolled out to the brand’s outposts in other cities worldwide.
Jordan fans will be able to bring their well-loved sneakers to the store to be taken care of by the Detail My Jordans program. There, a sneaker repair specialist will buff up your sneakers to near-new condition, ensuring many more years of service from your Jordans.
While trying out a new pair of Jordans in-store, premium members will be taken through a number of basketball training drills on an interactive wall display, which hopes to aid in finding the perfect model for each individual’s specific needs.
Lastly, premium members will be able to pre-register in-store or online for hyped Jordan Brand releases, sign up for apparel customization services, or attend Jordan Flight Camp basketball training and product education sessions.
For a better look at Asia’s largest Jordan-only store, check out the video teaser below.

KAWS is Joining Forces with NIGO for a Uniqlo UT Collaboration

If you’ve been missing out on your KAWS apparel fix since the shuttering of OriginalFake back in 2013, then you’re in luck: the artist has some new tees in the works. NIGO — who wears the creative director role at Uniqlo UT as one of his many hats — took to Instagram today to tease an upcoming collaboration between Donnelly and the Japanese fast fashion giant. While there’s currently no additional info on the endeavor, it stands to reason (given the timing of the post) that an official unveiling is likely right around the corner with a release set to follow for Spring/Summer 2016.
Stay tuned.

The Risks associated with Sugar

The idea that dietary sugars increase the risk for such things as hypertension and the development of health threatening changes in lipid profiles is not new. But a commonly held perception has been that these health risks represented a direct consequence of the fact that increased dietary sugar consumption caused weight gain, and it was the weight gain that then was the cause of the rise in blood pressure, etc.

But in a new study, researchers in New Zealand reviewed 39 studies that looked at diets in which sugar consumption was increased. Thirty-seven assessed lipid outcomes while 12 evaluated blood pressure.

Their results revealed that higher sugar consumption raised triglyceride levels, total cholesterol, low and high-density lipoproteins, as well as both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

The authors of the study also reported that these findings applied even when there was no change in body weight, stating:

Dietary sugars influence blood pressure and serum lipids. The relation is independent of effects of sugars on body weight.

The message in this study is important in that clearly there are some people who manage to consume excess sugar without gaining weight. These results indicate that despite their lack of weight gain, their dietary habits are still quite likely to be increasing their risk for dangerous health issues.
