Stephen curry clothing for youth

While 2020 has been a difficult year for Steph Curry on the basketball court, it’s looking rosier in terms of empire building.

Under Armour launched Curry’s personal brand Tuesday as the athletic wear manufacturer makes its play to win over younger consumers and take a bite out of Nike’s Jordan brand.

As of Tuesday morning, the brand website features men’s clothes for basketball and golf, as well as general workout clothing and casual wear. Under Armour will add more pieces to the collection over time, including women’s clothing — and new Curry Brand basketball shoes set to debut Dec. 11.

Under Armour chief executive Patrik Frisk told CNBC that Curry will be active in designing elements of the brand, which launched strategically close to the start of the new NBA season and the holidays. The brand is an effort to kick-start UA’s marketplace downturn in recent years, as it was listed the No. 1 brand no longer worn by male teens in Piper Sandler’s most recent “Taking Stock with Teens” report.

A significant part of the pitch is Curry’s effort to use the brand as a philanthropic vehicle: The Warriors star and Under Armour pledged an effort to create safe spaces and train coaches, aiming to impact 100,000 kids by 2025, using an unspecified percentage of the brand’s revenue.

That effort will start in Oakland, where Curry and the Warriors have worked to maintain roots after moving across the Bay to San Francisco’s Chase Center last summer. Under Armour says it will partner with local organizations to provide professional training for every youth sports coach in the Oakland Unified School District, as well as Oakland Parks & Recreation. CNBC reports the brand also aims to launch basketball at every Oakland Unified middle school.

Under Armour has taken financial hits in recent years after its rise along with the Warriors and Curry, who signed with the company in 2013. Meanwhile, Nike has maintained its No. 1 spot among sports apparel companies in the Piper Sandler teens report for a decade now, and also ranks tops in footwear, while Under Armour slid to 11th in this fall’s rankings.

You Might Have to Wait a Little Longer for Apple's AR Headset

Image for article titled You Might Have to Wait a Little Longer for Apple's AR Headset

Apple’s been rumored to be working on some kind of mixed reality headset for some time now. But like most gadgets these days, it appears that the headset will be delayed until the end of 2022 due to production issues.

The news comes from prolific Apple prognosticator Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5 Mac, Apple Insider). In an investor note, Kuo says the main reason for the production delay is the headset’s complicated design. The head-mounted display purportedly requires “much more industrial design requirements” compared to smartphones because you have to actually wear it. If any HMD is going to be successful, it’s got to at least be comfortable enough to wear for an extended period of time.

Another factor is that Apple reportedly isn’t looking to make a single-purpose device. For example, Kuo points to the Playstion VR and Facebook’s Oculus headsets as HMDs that are primarily used for gaming—and not much else. Instead, Apple supposedly wants to build a multi-purpose device. That comes with its own challenges, such as building out an entire ecosystem of software and services. Right now, no consumer-focused mixed reality device has managed to create a robust app ecosystem that works outside of gaming or enterprise.

Previously, Kuo had claimed the mixed reality headset would enter mass production in Q2 of 2022. Now it appears that’ll be pushed back to Q4 2022. And that’s if things continue to go swimmingly. Given the global chip crunch, supply chain issues, and the complexity of HMD designs, that timeline could very well creep further and further behind schedule.

As for how this secret headset will look and operate, that’s anyone’s guess. So far, we’ve heard that it’ll be wirelessly connected to an iPhone for computing, much like every other HMD that’s currently out there. A Bloomberg report earlier this year also contended the headset would feature beefier chips than those currently available in mixed-reality headsets. The report also says the headset will be a standalone device, much like the Oculus Quest 2. Kuo has also previously stated that this headset will be light AF, at about five ounces, and adopt a hybrid Fresnel lens design. Meanwhile, an Information report says this thing will have two 8K displays, more than a dozen cameras for hand-tracking, and will cost a jaw-dropping $3,000.

Some of these things may turn out to be true, but it’s better to take all of it with a heavy grain of salt. We won’t really know until Apple trots out the goods onstage. Recently, Apple CEO Tim Cook said he doesn’t expect to be at the helm in 10 years but wants to stick around for “one more major new product category.” That increasingly sounds like whatever this mixed-reality headset is—as well as a rumored pair of smart glasses in 2025.

THE JUNIOR GOLF ECOSYSTEM

The State (and future) of Youth Golf Development Programs

The future of golf is of course going to be built on the success of junior golf.  However, youth golf has often been criticized for little organization, poor public access and no clear developmental pathways.

Compare that to other youth sports like baseball, soccer, football where there exists a clear map of progression for access and development.  Think T-ball to Little League, after school club soccer, AAU basketball, travel league lacrosse and high school football.

The case for growing the sport of junior golf got a shot in arm when Golf returned to the Olympics.  The IOC requires participating countries to have a sports development model to support youth access and development.  To answer the call, a mix of formal and informal partnerships have stitched together an ecosystem of touchpoint to fill and address a number of issues that have historically handicapped youth development programs:

  • Transportation
  • Equipment
  • Access
  • Affordability
  • Instruction
  • Scholarship
  • After school programs
  • League play

Somoe of the key players in Junior Golf Development Programs include, but are not limited to:  Operation 36, The First Tee, AJGA, Future Champions League, Girls Golf, Project Play, and many more.  In today’s episode of The GIR, we make room at the table for three key players in the Junior Golf ecosystem:

  • PGA Jr. League – Steve Tanner, Director of League Golf
  • TGA Premier Sports – Joshua Jacobs, CEO & Founder
  • Youth on Course – Adam Heieck, CEO

The True Story Behind Pixar's $2 Billion Lunch Meeting In 1994

By Melissa Young

ShareTweetEmail

One reason Pixar movies are so successful is because the creators spend so much time brainstorming characters and story ideas.

Pixar has been around since 1986, but no one really knew about it until almost a decade later when Toy Story came out in 1995. The company has grown to be one of the most successful animation studios in the world since then. Almost all of their movies have either won or been nominated for an Oscar and have made millions of dollars. But it took a lot of hard work to get to where they are now.

One of the reasons their movies are so successful is because they spend so much time brainstorming ideas and coming up with amazing characters and stories. They even brainstormed ideas for four different movies in one day. In one lunch meeting, they came up with the ideas for A Bug’s Life, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, and WALL-E. Here is the true story behind the most memorable lunch meeting in animation history.

6 Four Of Pixar’s Directors Met At Hidden City Cafe (Which Was Featured In ‘Monsters, Inc.’)

The summer of 1994 changed everything for Pixar and made it the famous animation studio it is today. The studio was finishing its first feature film, Toy Story, which went on to be nominated for multiple Oscars and made history as the first 3D animated feature film. But while they were finishing Toy Story, John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Joe Ranft decided to meet for lunch to figure out what was next for Pixar. They met at Hidden City Cafe near the studio. They had no idea that it would be the place where the ideas for their most iconic movies would be born. Andrew Stanton told The Post and Courier, "There was something special that happened when John, Joe, Pete and I would get in a room. Whether it was furthering an idea or coming up with something, we just brought out the best in each other." Hidden City Cafe meant so much to them that they put it in the background in Monsters, Inc.

5 ‘A Bug’s Life’ Was Inspired By A Fable

The first idea they came up with later became 1998’s A Bug’s Life. Like many animated movies, it’s inspired by a fable. The Pixar filmmakers were trying to come up with something that wasn’t too hard to animate in 3D and something that also had an interesting story. “Bugs, like toys, would be easier to animate and thus an easier option. They were trying to build on the Aesop fable, "The Ant and the Grasshopper." Andrew Stanton and Joe Ranft suggested that the grasshoppers, unlike the fable, would just take the food from the ants,” according to Go Into The Story. Since grasshoppers are physically bigger than ants, it makes sense that they would flip the story and make the grasshoppers the villains. It wouldn’t be the same if Hopper wasn’t the villain.

4 A Popular Childhood Belief Inspired ‘Monsters, Inc’

Every Pixar movie is made with kids in mind (even though adults love them too), but Monsters, Inc. is completely inspired by them. When you were a kid, you probably thought there was a monster hiding in your room. That idea that kids have is what inspired the idea for the movie. Pete Docter told Oh My Disney, “Working on Toy Story, I was always amazed by how many people believed, as we do, that toys were alive when you weren’t in the room. I was trying to find any other beliefs like that I had as a kid. And I knew that there were monsters hiding in my closet waiting to scare me. So we started exploring that. And I’m not sure who asked, but they said, Why? Why are there monsters waiting to scare kids? What do the monsters get out of it? But that’s what sparked the whole concept.”

3 ‘Finding Nemo’ Was Also Inspired By Childhood Memories

Finding Nemo’s storyline isn’t really about kids like Monsters, Inc., but the idea for it was inspired by the director’s experience as a kid. Andrew Stanton took some of his childhood memories and turned it into a hit movie. “First, he remembers as a child watching the fish in the tank at the dentist's office, and wondering if the fish wanted to go home. In one of his trips to Marine World (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom), he saw a shark which he thought could be done so well in animation (like A Bug’s Life and Toy Story, at that time animation was restricted and advanced materials could not be made). He also got the idea of an overprotective father when he was doing something with his son at the park one day,” according to Go Into The Story. Nemo and Marlin ended up being clownfish because of a picture he saw after he came up with the story. The movie went on to win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature and it even inspired an organization called the Lucky Fin Project, which helps kids with limb differences just like Nemo.

2 ‘WALL-E’ Was Created From The Idea That Mankind Might Have To Leave Earth One Day

The last idea that arose in that historical lunch meeting turned into the adorable robot love story we all know today. Andrew Stanton had the interesting idea of a robot being the only one left on Earth if the pollution got so bad it made humans flee the planet. And that’s how WALL-E was created. In the production notes for WALL-E, Andrew Stanton said, “One of the things I remember coming out of it was the idea of a little robot left on Earth. We had no story. It was sort of this Robinson Crusoe kind of little character—like, what if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off, and he didn’t know he could stop doing what he’s doing?” The movie came out in 2008 and although the studio was worried if it would keep people’s attention, they made the right decision taking a chance on it. Viewers didn’t care if the robots didn’t talk that much and the movie has become a fan favorite over the years.

1 The Pixar Filmmakers Drew Rough Sketches Of The Characters On Napkins

While John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Joe Ranft were brainstorming, they drew rough sketches of characters on the napkins in the cafe. Pixar creates their stories based on their characters, so they wanted to draw them out first. That’s the key to making their films so amazing—the character is the center of the story so fans will connect more with them. The sketches on those napkins became characters we love and billion dollar ideas. “It’s been noted that the four filmmakers created rough outlines of the characters on top of table napkins in the Hidden City Cafe. That lunch break spawned what would become the golden age of Pixar films, and the 4 films alone grossed over $2 billion,” according to Geekritique. The Hidden City Cafe closed in 2012, but it will always be remembered as the birthplace of Pixar’s most iconic characters.
