They’re coming– disease-ridden pests that feed on your blood. Mosquito weather is just around the corner. Thankfully, Kite bug repellent products exist.

Some might say the itchy-borderline-painful mosquito bites are a fact of life; a badge of perseverance; the signs of summer. But the truth is, mosquitoes are much more than a nuance– they can be deadly, transmitting things like malaria, West Nile Virus, Zika, and Dengue. Not to mention all the other flies, gnats, horse flies, berry bugs and other stinging, biting bastards that threaten to ruin a good time.

The market is flooded with products that claim to keep them at bay: sprays, balms, citronella candles that don’t seem to do much of anything. Kite decided to do something about that– the innovative company found a way to block CO2 receptors in bugs– so they’ll never even know you’re there– but without the use of chemicals like DEET.

From the beginning, our goal was to change the way we protect ourselves against the nuisance and discomfort of crawling, flying, and biting insects,” Kite CEO Amro Albanna says. “We sought to shield humans from mosquitoes and other insects, without using harsh chemicals. Our first product, Kite Shield is different in this way, and as impressively effective as the products containing 7-10% DEET.” This claim isn’t just some hot CO2: third party studies have backed it up. Whatever plants and extracts Kite combined are clearly working.

Interestingly, Kite got its start thanks to a crowdfunding campaign. “We wanted to rally the crowd, get them involved, and make them a part of what we were trying to do,” Albanna explains. “The tremendous support we received strongly reinforced the crowd’s support for what we were working to achieve.” Clearly! Their Indiegogo campaign raised over $500,000. “Their support has also kept us going, to continue to push through the challenges that came our way.”

It’s also important to Kite that the people most in need of bug repellent have access to it– after all, it could mean the difference between life and death. “We have made a commitment to give back, so Kite products can be made available to everyone, everywhere. We hope to work with NGOs, who will be able to help us bring Kite to those people who need it most, so they can fight back against mosquitoes and other insects.”

With Kite, you can enjoy the outdoors using an awesomely effective botanical formula of bug repellent that’s also helping to keep people safer and healthier around the world.

Google Maps has long been a dominant player in navigation, known for its comprehensive data and ease of use. However, with the release of iOS 17, Apple has introduced a game-changing feature that's set to make Apple Maps the go-to choice for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers. Apple is finally introducing offline maps, and it's a feature that will revolutionize the way hikers, campers, skiers, and snowboarders navigate the great outdoors.
iOS 17 unveils offline maps for Apple Maps
Apple Maps has come a long way since its initial launch, and it's continually striving to offer users a more robust and feature-rich experience. With the launch of iOS 17 on September 18, 2023, Apple is introducing offline maps, a feature that will be a game-changer for those who love outdoor activities.

Offline maps allow users to select specific areas to download to their phones. Once downloaded, these maps can be accessed and used without an internet connection. This makes it possible to enjoy turn-by-turn navigation and conduct searches even in remote areas where internet connectivity may be unreliable or nonexistent. It works similarly to Google Maps in the sense that you do need a WiFi connection to download the maps, but after that, you're good to go off the grid.
The perfect companion for outdoor adventures
For outdoor enthusiasts, this feature is a dream come true. Whether you're hiking in the wilderness, camping in a remote location, skiing down the slopes, or snowboarding in the mountains, having access to offline maps can be a lifesaver. Here's how this feature can benefit different adventure seekers:

If you were to look up the word "superstar" in the dictionary, it wouldn't be surprising if Brad Pitt's visage was strewn across the page. When you hear his name, it’s hard not to think of his chiseled abs, effortless charm, and distinctively beautiful face. Many may even immediately think of all the media surrounding his romantic entanglements with Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, but we’re definitely not here to talk about that.

Today, we are here to talk about the many strides Brad Pitt has made in his film career; from war movies to heist comedies, he's taken his physical beauty and made the most of it. While he may not have the reputation of Tom Hanks or Al Pacino, Pitt has become a great performer in his own right. In addition to his prolific acting career, Pitt is also a producer with more than 60 credits to his name. Clearly, there is much more to him than just what meets the eye, which is part of what makes him such a compelling screen presence.
