It might not be the most glamorous piece of equipment in your arsenal, but your power

It might not be the most glamorous piece of equipment in your arsenal, but your power supply of choice is vital to the performance of your pedals and their marriage on your ‘board. To save you the hassle of trawling the internet for the best available, we’ve picked out the 10 power supplies we believe are the best on the market today. A 12-output powerhouse, Truetone’s CS12 boasts, as you’d expect, 12 fully-isolated outputs with high-draw ones included. It also offers two AC outputs, perfect for making sure you never part with your old DigiTech Whammy to piss off your neighbours with your pastiche of Tom Morello for the umpteenth time. Surprisingly affordable given the level performance it produces, its hard to find any negatives around the CS12. Voodoo Lab, along with the aformentioned Truetone, is the company you’re most likely to see on the pedalboards of the pros. Their Pedal Power 2 Plus is rugged, reliable, includes nine isolated outputs and has the versatility to please even the most pedantic of players. Whilst we could have opted for Cioks DC10 or even ADAM, we chose the DC7 simply for impressively compact format, especially given the amount of outputs on board, and its ...

37 Random 5-Star-Rated Products On Amazon That Are Rad As Hell

There isn’t much of a learning curve when it comes to shopping online — but if there’s one thing that you should always look out for, it’s the customer reviews. It doesn’t matter how affordable a product is (or how long you’ve been trying to find it); a slew of bad reviews probably means it’s an iffy choice. Luckily, there are tons of five-star products available on Amazon to choose from instead — they’re products where the majority of the reviews are perfect five-stars. To make the vetting process a little bit easier, Amazon verifies their user reviews by confirming that each buyer actually made their purchase on the website (that’s what the “Amazon Verified Purchase” symbol is for). In other words, you don’t have to worry about coming across any questionable reviews while you’re shopping. So when a customer writes that the countertop pasta maker they just purchased is the best thing they’ve ever bought, you can be sure that they really have the product. Whether you’re in the market for a pasta maker or if you’ve been scouring the web for an affordable gel manicure set, the possibilities ...

Reformer Pilates explained: how it can work for you

Famous names – including Margot Robbie and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex – swear by the powers of reformer Pilates for transforming one’s physicality. But Frame, London’s original pay-as-you-go boutique fitness studio, wants you to know that the practice is for everybody, not just the wellness poster girls. Put simply, it’s Pilates performed on specialist equipment (the reformer), which allows for a more dynamic, and/or targeted workout. We spoke to Frame’s reformer expert, James Shaw (pictured below), whose in-class ethos is “progression not perfection”, about the misconceptions of this kind of Pilates. Here he tells Bazaar all you need to know. “The Pilates reformer is an amazing piece of apparatus unlike no other, which helps you to find length and space in the body while under spring tension. Far from just a workout for your core, this piece of apparatus helps create internal pressure to elongate the spine, joints and muscles which then leads to greater flexibility, strength, stamina and a more balanced posture. This type of physical and mental workout is even more relevant now due to lifestyle factors such as long working days, being seated for...

Dershowitz says, “Every honest criminal lawyer will tell you that he defends the guilty and the innocent.” Dershowitz says, “Every honest criminal lawyer will tell you that he defends the guilty and the innocent.” “A lie is a lie is a lie,” Whoopi Goldberg said. It was May 2nd, and she was on the set of “The View,” the daytime talk show that she co-hosts. The subject was Attorney General William Barr, who had argued that the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was not as alarming as it seemed—endorsing Donald Trump’s claim that there had been “no collusion, no obstruction” in the Russia case. Goldberg was incredulous. “Our parents taught us, if you lie, there are consequences,” she said. “When are consequences coming back?” Her guest, the attorney Alan Dershowitz, offered an answer that combined legal analysis and political handicapping. “They come back in November of 2020, when we all go to the polls and we vote against people that we think lied,” he said. “But it would be a terrible thing”—he held up a finger for emphasis—“to criminalize lies.” Dershowitz is a frequent guest on shows like “The View”; for decades, he has been a frequent guest just about everywhere.

Tourists in Kenya pose with CHEETAHS after they pounced on their jeep

A quick-thinking photographer took a self paw-trait of himself and a family of cheetahs when they jumped on a car. Dhaval Shah, 30, was unfazed when the four cheetahs leapt onto the jeep he was in with close friend Upesh Mungra, 31. Upesh Mungra (left) and Dhaval Shah (right) started taking their selfie photos with the cheetahs in Kenya Close up photos taken of the cheetahs show the moment that one of the cubs stood next to its mother, Malaika, five, and licked its lips as it approached the pair Clement Mwangi takes photos of Dhaval Shah and Upesh Mungra taking their selfie photos with the cheetahs They both posed calmly with the animals and snapped away while cautiously moving behind them, just centimetres away. One of the cubs stood next to its mother, Malaika, five, and licked its lips as it approached the pair. Mr Shah, from Jamnagar, India, wearing a blue t-shirt in the pictures, said: ‘We were lucky the cheetahs didn’t bite us. ‘It was amazing experience, a life time experience we couldn’t even imagine because we were so close to Malaika and her cubs.

Almost nothing is sacred in new-mom conversations: leaky boobs, C-section scars, stretch marks, the dread of

Almost nothing is sacred in new-mom conversations: leaky boobs, C-section scars, stretch marks, the dread of having sex again. But there’s one side effect that even over-sharers usually view as TMI. “No one talks about the fact that constipation is one of the worst complications of having a baby,” says Jennifer Wider, M.D., a women’s health expert in Fairfield, Connecticut, and author of The New Mom’s Survival Guide. “I had no idea how painful it would be, and I’m a doctor.” Here’s what you need to know about this annoying, unpleasant, and uncomfortable side effect of birth.  Constipation typically begins in pregnancy, peaks after birth, drags on through the breastfeeding stage, and continues even when your toddler is barging into the bathroom. It usually results from a combination of different factors, which may include a traumatized digestive system from birth, fluctuating hormones, postpartum medication, dehydration, or a subconscious fear of tearing your vaginal stitches. Postpartum constipation and hemorrhoids often come as a package deal, so some women may also worry about irritating their hemorrhoids with a bowel movement.  So how long does postpartum constipation last?  ...

World Series 2019: How the Astros built their AL champion roster through trades, free agency and the draft

HOUSTON — For the second time in three seasons, the Houston Astros are heading to the World Series. The Astros clinched the 2019 American League pennant with a walk-off win over the Yankees in Game 6 of the ALCS. They will face the Nationals in the World Series beginning Tuesday — stream all games via fuboTV (Try for free). Like every team, the Astros were assembled through all sorts of different methods. No team is built exclusively through the draft, or trades, or free agency. It’s not possible. Successful teams acquire talent through every avenue possible. Here is Houston’s 2019 WAR breakdown via the Baseball Gauge: • Trades: 22.0 WAR (3rd in MLB)  • Draft: 18.8 WAR (4th)• Free Agency: 12.6 WAR (5th)• Other: 8.3 WAR (2nd)• International Free Agency: 5.9 WAR (5th) The Astros have pilfered other teams in trades. They’ve also crushed it in the draft and made some shrewd free agent signings as well. Their international scouting team is among the best in baseball too. Let’s take a deeper look at how the Astros built the roster that carried them to the 2019 World Series. In a perfect world teams would draft and develop their entire 25-man roster ...
