There are thousands of new crossword puzzles made and completed every day — and they can be really hard.

Like a track-only version of a high-end sports car, the Awake Ravik S takes what's great about the original and turns it up a notch. Still powered by the powerful Awake Direct Drive system, its carbon fiber hull has been completely redesigned with agility in mind. That means a 30% lower buoyancy, a narrow tail, and softer edges that are easier to push into the water, but with twin fins for stable straights. As with the Ravik, it offers four power settings to suit your riding style, an exchangeable battery for added ride time, and a wireless, handheld throttle control.
Top Speed: 35 mph / 30 Knots
Acceleration: 0 - 30 mph in 4 seconds
Battery Life: 40 minutes on an 80-minute full charge
Weight w/ Battery: 77 lbs
Included: Ravik Surfboard / One Battery / Power Key / Handheld Throttle / Handle Strap / Battery Charger
All carabiners are not created equal. This versatile example proves that, created with survival in mind. A small wheel provides a reliable spark whenever you need it, helping to start a fire easily — giving you a leg up around the campfire, and a potentially life-saving option during an emergency. The lightweight accessory is made from strong stainless steel with a durable titanium coating and can handle up to 100 pounds of weight. The Firebiner also has a stainless steel safety blade to cut fishing line, paracord and more, along with a screwdriver tip, hang slots to connect keys, and a bottle opener.
Mahershala Ali heads to the Ozarks but not for that show. The Moonlight actor is headlining the third season of HBO's True Detective. The series appears to return to its dark, gritty roots, taking place in Arkansas during three different time periods as Ali investigates the disappearance of two children in the 1980s. Penned once again by Nic Pizzolatto, the show returns January 13, 2019.
Launched 16 days before its twin Voyager 1 in 1977, Voyager 2 has left the Solar System and entered interstellar space and is now taking the first direct measurements of the plasma fields there. In operation for 41 years, 3 months and 21 days, Voyager 2 has technology that is far inferior to the smartphone in your pocket — yet it's still providing valuable data to scientists here on Earth. See you space cowboy. . .
Much the same as the first moc-toe boots made by the company in the 1950s, the Red Wing Heritage Classic Moc Boot is a quality shoe with a timeless design. Its upper is crafted from either premium Oro Legacy or Black Harness leather, and joined to a Traction Tred rubber outsole with a Goodyear leather welt. A cork midsole provides comfort while triple stitching and Taslan laces offer added durability. The nature of the USA-made construction allows Red Wing (or other shoe experts) to resole the boots endlessly as needed. The result is a handsome pair of boots that will still be wearable long after other purchases have gone out of style.
We suggest ordering a half-size down from your normal size. Red Wing boots should fit snug upon arrival, and break in slowly as you wear them, creating a leather-glove-effect around your foot.
Riding the line between a dress shoe and a sneaker, the Cole Haan 4.ZERØGRAND Oxford adds infinite versatility to your wardrobe.

The full-length TPU traction pattern delivers excellent grip, while its upper provides a lightweight, conforming fit for extended wear. Merging together athletic performance with a formal aesthetic, the 4.ZG has a modern look and feel that can easily move you from one big moment to the next.
George Costanza may have been a lot of things but a culinary genius wasn't one of them. In his Seinfeld special, Binging with Babish's Andrew Rea explores the Lord of the Idiots' interesting appetite by recreating some of his most bizarre fares.
