Fitbit’s $  199 Versa 2 offers a functional smartwatch in an inexpensive packageFitbit is rolling out a new subscription health and fitness tracking service later this fall called Fitbit Premium. But to take advantage of the service, you’ll need a Fitbit device — which is where the new Versa 2 comes in.

Futuristic Fibers Are Always in Fashion at Advanced Functional Fabrics of America

Fashion brands live and die based on service — whether that is online, in stores or through their factories.
However engrained that is in the industry, the forward-thinking Advanced Functional Fabrics of America wants insiders and consumers to recognize the service that technologically enhanced fabrics can provide. Running tights that illuminate when facing headlights, color-changing garments, cellphone-charging fibers, athletic wear equipped to share real-time physiological data and app-powered trade show bags that share personal information are among the Cambridge, Mass.-based group’s projects. Developing fabric as a service or fabric as software is part of its mission.
The concept of fabrics as a service as opposed to fabrics as a commodity is going to make the industry think about their business models in a very different way, according to AFFOA chief product officer Tosha Hays. “With subscription models like Rent The Runway, Harry’s and things like that, the consumer’s mind is shifting about how they actually purchase and use goods. The time is right for us to think of fabrics as a service,” she said, adding that services-enriched apparel is more appealing to consumers whether they are making purchases or renting “versus just buying it as a commodity and just throwing it out.”

The Functional Treatment of Parsing

The Functional Treatment of Parsing


Parsing technology traditionally consists of two branches, which correspond to the two main application areas of context-free grammars and their generalizations. Efficient deterministic parsing algorithms have been developed for parsing programming languages, and quite different algorithms are employed for analyzing natural language. The Functional Treatment of Parsing provides a functional framework within which the different traditional techniques are restated and unified. The resulting theory provides new recursive implementations of parsers for context-free grammars. The new implementations, called recursive ascent parsers, avoid explicit manipulation of parse stacks and parse matrices, and are in many ways superior to conventional implementations. They are applicable to grammars for programming languages as well as natural languages. The book has been written primarily for students and practitioners of parsing technology. With its emphasis on modern functional methods, however, the book will also be of benefit to scientists interested in functional programming. The Functional Treatment of Parsing is an excellent reference and can be used as a text for a course on the subject.

Functional Movement Journal

Functional Movement Journal


CrossFit is a results based fitness system. In order to know if you are progressing you need to track the quantifiable and related metrics of your workouts and recovery. The outcome is usually in the form of weight lifted, reps performed, time or rounds completed, or any infinite combination of those components. Keeping track of these components in your training log, over a period of time, lets you know if CrossFit is working to produce the results you’re after. The Functional Movement Journal provides a structured and organized format for you to input the important metrics from your workouts. Features include: One training day per page Lots of room to write. Enough journal pages for 90 days of training. Journal page includes sections for tracking – Weightlifting/Olympic lifting WOD/Conditioning work Mobility/Skills Learned Nutrition/Notes Recovery Exclusive Recovery Factor Tool Track the actions you take to help you recover from training. Personal Record Log track all of your PRs in one place.

Frontier Natural Products Co-op 218797 Maggies Functional Organics Organic Baby Natural Bodysuits 0-6 mos.


All of Maggie’s dyed products are made with the least amount of environmental impact possible, while still assuring color fastness and vibrancy. Initially Maggie’s colors were all created with natural dyes. After we encountered repeated problems with color fastness and with heavy metal mordants used in these dyes, we switched to low-impact dyes in 1996. All of our dyes now meet or exceed the pending North American Organic Fiber Processing standards., which set specific limits for dyestuff, including metals allowed and discharge in effluent water. The Pesticide-free Hemp fiber we use is sustainably grown by a group of cooperative family farms in France. It is blended with U.S. Grown Certified Organic Cotton yarns to make our socks and gloves a beautiful creamy color as well as to soften the hemp’s natural scratchiness. Hemp fiber is known for its strength as well as its anti-fungal properties. The strength of Hemp fiber is does not normally make for very soft clothing. Because of several special mechanical processes and the fact that we blend our Hemp with Organic Cotton you’ll find our Hemp socks are very soft. For more about this very unique fiber please see Hemp, Hemp Hooray .

Programming Elixir: Functional -> Concurrent -> Pragmatic -> Fun

Programming Elixir: Functional -> Concurrent -> Pragmatic -> Fun


You want to explore functional programming, but are put off by the academic feel (tell me about monads just one more time). You know you need concurrent applications, but also know these are almost impossible to get right. Meet Elixir, a functional, concurrent language built on the rock-solid Erlang VM. Elixir’s pragmatic syntax and built-in support for metaprogramming will make you productive and keep you interested for the long haul. This book is “the” introduction to Elixir for experienced programmers. Maybe you need something that’s closer to Ruby, but with a battle-proven environment that’s unrivaled for massive scalability, concurrency, distribution, and fault tolerance. Maybe the time is right for the Next Big Thing. Maybe it’s “Elixir.” And don’t forget to download this handy “cheat sheet”: https: //media.pragprog.com/titles/​elixir/ElixirCheat.pdf for Elixir syntax. h5. Print books will be available after Elixir 1.0 has been finalized. As a developer, you’ve probably heard that functional programming techniques help manage the complexities of today’s real-world, concurrent systems. You’re also investigating designs that help you maximize uptime and manage security. This book is your guide to Elixir, a modern, functional, and concurrent programming language. Because Elixir runs on the Erlang VM, and uses the underlying Erlang/OTP architecture, it benefits from almost 20 years of research into high performance, highly parallel, and seriously robust applications. Elixir brings a lot that’s new: a modern, Ruby-like, extendable syntax, compile and runtime evaluation, a hygienic macro system, and more. But, just as importantly, Elixir brings a sense of enjoyment to parallel, functional programming. Your applications become fun to work with, and the language encourages you to experiment. Part 1 covers the basics of writing sequential Elixir programs. We’ll look at the language, the tools, and the conventions. Part 2 uses these skills to star
