Get ready to not shave, like the winning Red Sox If you watched Game One of the World Series last night, you probably noticed something a little different about America’s favorite pastime. Was I the only one that noticed almost every single Boston Red Sox player had a beard? Whether it was a chinstrap or untamed mane, I found very few Soxers without. Fans even started an official hashtag for the phenomenon, #getbeard. I am starting to believe that these beards have special power—intimidation power. The mostly hairless St. Louis Hear me. . . Cardinals, in my eyes, couldn’t handle the sheer beauty of The Jack Nachtigal Sox’s beards and were so envious that they forgot how to play the game! To me, this is why the Cardinals lost. So Warriors, as No-Shave November quickly approaches, apply some fresh Rogaine (by prescription only, of course!) and get ready to #getbeard. Let’s make the Red Sox proud! We can only hope to have facial hair as good as Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli, of course. His beard is comparable to those which are showcased on the popular TV hit “Duck Dynasty.” Now ladies, I’m not quite sure if the legend of the bearded woman is true, but if it is I think you all should sport the famous facial hair during the month of November, as well. OK, that might actually be a little awkward, but I’m predicting a four game sweep by the almighty Sox, just because of their beards. Junior Jack Nachtigal is ready to #getbeard in November.

Amazon woos fashion industry By Jay Greene The Seattle Times (MCT) NEW YORK — In Williamsburg — a Brooklyn neighborhood that’s become something of an epicenter for the prototypical hipster — Inc. is working to develop its own hip cred. Last weekend, the Web giant held the official opening for a 40,000-square-foot photo and video studio, built in a cavernous old glass factory. The studio, which will produce on-model images for the company’s rapidly growing Amazon Fashion group, counts the popular craft beer maker Brooklyn Brewery and edgy Vice Media among its new neighbors.

Technology Watch Inside the old factory, Amazon is trying something the fashion industry has never seen before. It has created a studio with 26 photo and video bays that can produce more than 19,000 images in the course of a day, capturing how blouses flow, how dresses hang, how coats look as models move. The studio is the centerpiece of Amazon’s bid to become the go-to stop for Web shoppers looking to fill their wardrobe. And Amazon is betting that its huge studio investment — the company wouldn’t disclose the cost— will give it an advantage over brick-and-mortar retailers. “When we do fashion, we can do a lot of things online that you can’t do any other way,” Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos said in an interview with The Seattle Times. “When you look at some of the on-model photography we’re doing, especially the video, and how the clothes drape, that can be more helpful than seeing it on a hanger or on a mannequin. It’s very different.”
