NikeLab Transforms the Humble T-Shirt as Part of Its New Advanced Apparel Exploration Line

Image via: Nike

In revealing its new collection, dubbed NIKE Advanced Apparel Exploration (A.A.E.) 1.0, NikeLab showcases the technology that went into one of the most foundational garments in anyone’s wardrobe: the T-shirt. The A.A.E. version of the simple garment represents a fundamental shift in terms of the the conventional process used to make a typical T-shirt. NikeLab utilized computational design to merge a series of body motion maps, with a special focus placed on temperature and humidity fluctuations in modern urban environments — spanning the subway, street, office and club — that led to additional digital body maps influenced by cling, airflow, sweat and heat.

Apparel designers and Nike Flyknit engineers then worked together to collect and merge the data from all motion and temperature maps, generating a singular and complex data set that was translated into a visual language — namely, a single-layer, seamless knit that delivers ventilation where needed and coverage where desired. 

The tee anchors the nine-piece NikeLab NIKE A.A.E. 1.0 collection, a design-led, data-informed system of apparel that’s made to meet the all-day requirements of the modern urban dweller. Expect the NikeLab NIKE A.A.E. 1.0 collection to launch September 14th at NikeLab and select retailers.

Release Date: 9/14/17 (Thursday)

BRONX NEWS: Burglar breaks into Bronx pol’s district office, takes nothing


Maybe he was looking for some late-night constituent services.


A masked burglar filibustered into a Bronx Congressman’s office early Friday but apparently took nothing, police sources said.


Cops responding to a 911 call about a break in at Rep. Adriano Espaillat’s district office on the Grand Concourse about 3 a.m. found surveillance video showing the masked crook walking around the office.


He forced open a rear door to get inside some time after midnight, police said.


The crook also entered a music studio in the office basement.


Nothing appeared to have been taken but staffers are still taking an inventory, police sources said.


Espaillat, a Democrat, represents Harlem, Washington Heights, Inwood and parts of the Bronx. He currently serves on the House foreign affairs, small business and education committees.


He was elected to Congress in November 2016, succeeding retired Rep. Charles Rangel.


Calls to Espaillat’s office for comment were not immediately returned.

BRONX NEWS: Robbers mace 76-year-old man in the face during struggle in Bronx


A 76-year-old man was maced in the face during a mugging outside his Bronx apartment building, police said Thursday.


The victim had just visited a friend and was approaching his home on the Grand Concourse near E. 175th St. at about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday when two men grabbed him from behind.


One of the crooks sprayed mace in the senior’s face as the pair tried to rifle through his pockets, but the spry septugenarian fought them off with his umbrella.


The thieves ran off empty handed.

NYPD launches program designed to prevent crimes against elderly


Medics rushed the senior to Bronx Lebanon Hospital with redness and irritation to his eyes and ear, cops said.


No arrests have been made.


The attack was among a recent string of robberies against senior citizens in the city.


Earlier this month, cops gave out reflective bracelets with high pitch alarms to help seniors scare off crooks and alert their neighbors to crimes.

Despite the increased fears, robberies against senior citizens are down from prior years, police said.


As of Sunday, police investigated 264 robberies against victims who are 65-years-old or older.


That’s a 7% decrease from the 285 reported this time a year earlier, cops said.

BRONX NEWS: AG’s office clears NYPD in death of Bronx man Tasered by police


An investigation by the state Attorney General’s Office has cleared the NYPD of “criminal culpability” in the November death of a Bronx man Tasered repeatedly by police.


The probe by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s Special Investigations and Prosecutions Unit determined that criminal charges were not warranted because Ariel Galarza had threatened police officers with a glass bottle and ignored orders to drop it.


In its report, Schneiderman’s SIPU unit noted that a police officer “may justifiably use reasonable force in order to protect himself against the imminent use of unlawful force against himself or another person, or to effect an arrest.”


“We send our deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Galarza, whose death was a tragedy,” Schneiderman said. “We remain committed to following the facts and providing exhaustive and transparent accounting of all cases we investigate under the executive order.”

When insanity can get you killed


Galarza’s family expressed disappointment at the findings and vowed to pursue a lawsuit.


“This has to stop. It has to stop. These killings have to stop,” said his sister, Jeanette Galarza, after meeting at the attorney general’s office on Thursday.


“We are very disappointed. These situations can be handled in a much more civilized matter,” said Jeanette Galarza.


Attorneys Sanford Rubenstein and Scott Rynecki, who represent the family, said they would continue their “quest for justice for the killing or Ariel Galarza” with a civil lawsuit.

Sister of NYC man Tasered to death by cop seeks justice


“The family of Ariel Galarza is extremely disappointed that the Attorney General — after an extensive investigation — concluded that the actions of the police officer was not criminal,” Rubenstein said. “However the quest for justice for the killing of Ariel Galarza is not over. Next week, a civil action will be filed in the Bronx alleging other things like NYPD protocol violations where Ariel Galarza was Tasered three times, twice after being disabled, dropped a glass bottle was the cause of his wrongful death.”


Galarza, 49, died after Sgt. William Melrose zapped him three times with the Taser, causing cardiac arrest. He was allegedly holding a 12-ounce bottle of hot sauce.


Melrose arrived at the Mayflower Ave. building after a neighbor called 911 when she saw Galarza acting erratic and holding a knife. The neighbor later admitted it was a mistake and apologized.


The report by Schneiderman’s office determined that after Galarza ignored orders to drop the bottle, Melrose delivered a five-second electrical shock with the Taser and then two more five-second shocks after he continued to struggle and resist efforts to put him in handcuffs.

After he was handcuffed, Galarza lost consciousness and his heart stopped. Although EMS personnel were able to restore a heartbeat, Galarza was unable to maintain a normal heart rhythm and he was pronounced dead at the hospital.


The report noted that two separate autopsy results determined that Galarza died of cardiac arrest resulting from a combination of a preexisting heart condition, drug intoxication, and obesity, combined with the effects of physical exertion, restraint, and the use of the Taser.
