"Smallfoot" Uncovers a Giant Myth-Understanding

What if something you think doesn’t exist, thinks you don’t exist?
What if the giant yetis of legend are real and the stories we tell about them—with their thick wild hair, booming roars and enormous feet—are like the tall tales they tell about us…but with a twist.  To them, we’re strangely hairless little beasts with screechy voices and freakishly small feet.  And entirely imaginary.  That is, until one yeti sees a human with his own eyes and becomes a believer.


Pacing and Practice Amp Up Coach Don Velasco’s Cycling Game

Sought-after triathlon coach Don Velasco uses his Samsung Gear Sport to improve his cycling performance
It’s no question that triathlons are challenging. Lasting hours at a time, the race demands so much from the human body across swim, bike, and run phases with little to no rest in between each phase. Triathlons require utmost dedication and preparation, and athletes who are serious about their performance are always on the hunt for the right tools and training methods.
This is where Coach Don Velasco’s scientific and data-backed methods come in. A certified ironman coach and consistent top finisher in his age group, Coach Don promotes the use of lactate and metabolic performance testing. “Lactate testing is an assessment to see how lactate or acidity builds up in your body. So as you go harder, your body generates more acidity, which in turn prevents you from going longer or going faster,” he explains.

The winner of the Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Searching stars Asian-American actors John Cho and Michelle La, in her feature film debut. 
In the film, after David Kim (Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter, Margot (La), goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.
