Ressence Type 5X waterproof watch replicates the design of a car’s dashboard » Gadget Flow

first_imgThe Ressence Type 5X waterproof watch features a unique design with markings on the bezel that are related to a car’s dashboard. In particular, the bezel is divided into two distinct parts. The first replicates the warmup of an engine and the second dedicates itself to the Turbos cooling. The dial and sub-dials draw inspiration from cars, with the Lancia Delta Futurista car being the motivation behind the graphics. Furthermore, this waterproof watch is legible from low angles thanks to the oil. It continues working in water up to 100m and the rubber accessory makes it practical and comfortable for wearing while driving. Finally, the olive green shade on the dial softens and darkens due to the presence of oil in the dial. This creates a unique effect and improves visibility, too. – Advertisement –last_img read more

LA Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen earns his first All-Star nod

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> Kenley Jansen had other plans for the All-Star break.Jansen said he was thinking about fishing near his Redondo Beach home sometime next week or maybe taking his family to Disneyland.Though the Dodgers’ closer recently became the club’s all-time saves leader and entered Tuesday with 25 saves, the second-most in the major leagues in 2016, he had not been selected to the National League All-Star team during his previous six seasons.“I’m not getting my hopes up and then getting disappointed again,” Jansen said last week. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error It is a sore spot no longer.Jansen was among three Dodgers, including rookie shortstop Corey Seager and ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw, to be selected to participate in the Midsummer Classic next Tuesday in San Diego.“It definitely means a lot,” Jansen said. “Everybody has their own opinion and the last few years I’ve been overshadowed by a couple guys. You can’t worry about that. Now that I finally have that chance, I’m happy to be a part of it. It’s a blessing.”Hours before the rosters were revealed during a televised selection show Tuesday, Jansen learned he had made the team when he spoke with Dodgers chief marketing officer Lon Rosen by phone before arriving at Dodger Stadium.With his selection, Jansen is the first Dodgers relief pitcher to be an All-Star since Jonathan Broxton and Hong-Chih Kuo in 2010.center_img “Kenley is one of the elite closers throughout the game, and he’s shown that over the last few years,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Asked before the announcement about Jansen awaiting his first All-Star Game selection, Roberts said, “It’d certainly be a nice feather in his cap.”Kershaw, who earned his seventh consecutive selection, was a likely candidate to start for the NL after he went 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA in 16 starts. But the left-handed ace will not pitch at Petco Park because of a herniated disc in his lower back that sent him to the disabled list last week. He received an epidural shot to ease the pain and he is expected to miss most of the month, but he will be in attendance Tuesday.At 22 years old, Seager is the youngest Dodgers position player ever selected.He was named as a reserve, as determined by a player vote.“It’s really cool,” Seager said. “It’s nice to have your peers see you like that. The fan vote’s awesome. It’s awesome to have the support of fans. It’s nice that your peers voted you in. It’s nice that they saw everything. It was really cool for sure.”Seager entered Tuesday night’s game against Baltimore hitting .305 with a .363 on-base percentage and .545 slugging percentage. Seager might also participate in the Home Run Derby.He said the MLB Players Association recently contacted him about the possibility and he told them he was open to it.Seager’s 17 home runs are the 29th most among all major leaguers, though only six fewer than Colorado’s Todd Frazier, who has the third most.Joc Pederson was in the derby last season as a rookie, then hit just six of his 26 home runs after the All-Star break, fueling the theory that participating in the event can ruin a hitter’s swing.“If it messes up your swing,” Seager said, “you can figure it out later.”Roberts said he had no qualms about Seager or anyone else joining the home run competition. He said it’s their decision.“For every hitter that is in the home run contest who has a bad second half, whether it be Joc Pederson or Todd Frazier, there’s another player who was in the home run contest who continued to have a very good second half,” Roberts said. “A lot of times we look at the players who go the other way and go south. That’s not necessarily the norm.”Urias sent downJulio Urias was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, a bit of a formality a day after Roberts called the move likely. Urias’ spot in the rotation is slated to be filled by veteran Hyun-Jin Ryu, who makes his first start Thursday night against the Padres. Ryu has not pitched for the club since 2014 because of shoulder surgeries.The 19-year-old Urias made eight starts and went 1-2 with a 4.95 ERA after making his debut May 27. In a corresponding move, the Dodgers brought up reliever Luis Avilan.AlsoBrett Anderson threw off a mound Tuesday for the first time since he underwent surgery on a bulging disk in his back in March. Anderson was initially ruled out for three to five months. … Joc Pederson (shoulder) and Kiké Hernandez (ribs) are rehabbing at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.last_img read more
