Freestyle Magazine Urban Jam

What happens if you mix up the art of Freestyle Disc and urban architecture? Loads of pure fun and a completely new view of the city.Hunting for walls, gaps, quarters, handrails and art/monuments is an excintig alternative to the game on green flat grass.  To produce an new Freestyle Magazine Trailer some players of the Berlin Jammers, chief and creative director of the Freestle Magazine Jason McGlade and film producer Stephan Stoll met and went to some architectural and cultural hotspots in the center of Berlin. Special thanks go out to EASTPACK and ASICS for supporting us during that marvelous production!

Super Glue Inventor Harry Wesley Coover Dies

Harry Wesley Coover Jr., the inventor of Super Glue, has died. He was 94. Coover died Saturday at his home in Kingsport, Tennessee. He was working for Tennessee Eastman Company when an accident helped lead to the popular adhesive being discovered. In 1951, Coover and another researcher recognized the potential for the strong adhesive, and it was first sold in 1958, according to the Super Glue’s website. President Barack Obama honored Coover in 2010 with the National Medal of Science. Coover also had a part in early television history, appearing with Garry Moore for “I’ve got a Secret.” Moore, the show’s host, and Coover were hung in the air on bars that were stuck to metal supports with a single drop of his glue during a live broadcast.

The use of "super-glue" became essential in the history of Freestyle-Frisbee. To develop their techniques, Freestylers started to glue "Fake Nails" on their finger to improve their Moves & Tricks. The longer and harder nail reduced friction making the disc spin faster and enabling freestylers to do longer "delays" especially inside the rim of the disc. Combining the "Fake Nails" with some pure silicon-spray created an explosive variety in the world of frisbee moves. Nowadays almost all Freestyle players glue fake nails onto their real nails although there are still some players out there who play without. This goes to show:with or without nails- everyone is able to do cool tricks. With a frisbee there are no limits!

I'm sure many of us owe Dr. Coover big time for keeping our nails on all these years!

We are the champions!

Remember the name - Kilburn Boxer Ashley Theophane became the new British Light Welterweight Champion at Wembley Arena  on Saturday. With IBO and British titles now firmly under Ashley's belt the next step can only be onwards and upwards...
