Working out is something that a large portion of the population does on a daily basis. For those who have been working out for years, they know up until recently, all workout gear was either grey or plain black. There were limited styles of workout wear that offered any kind of color or pattern to their gear. That is where TechStyle came into the picture.
They opted to come up with a solution to bring more color into the gyms by creating a line or workout wear that was fashionable for even going to the gym. They knew that most people who were going to the gym daily were going with the idea that they had to be uncomfortable and unstylish for the gym. They had the brilliant idea of creating a line of gear that would allow the person to be flexible enough to practice yoga positions while still being able to workout. Up until now, the gyms were lined with people all wearing black and gray.
When Kate Hudson was first approached by TechStyle, she knew she wanted to be heavily involved from day one. She knew there was a good concept in the idea and wanted to be a part of the team. She wanted to come up with the ideas and the patterns of the workout wear and to market those items to others who look to her for style options. She knew people looked up to her and that she had the ability to relate to people and therefore would be the perfect person to speak out about their mission.
Kate first started working with designers to come up with an idea about workout wear that would be good to use for all areas of working out. Not only is her workout wear something that can be worn in the gym but she also showcases her different styles each time she steps foot outside to go to the coffee shop or even the store. People spot her out and about wearing the different styles and therefore can picture themselves wearing the same outfits.

Orange Coast College often sees visitors to its horticultural Department, but the educational institution expects to see a rise in the number of visitors in the coming weeks as a specimen of the so-called “Corpse Flower” comes into bloom. The “Corpse Flower” is well known for its foul smell said to be reminiscent of rotting flesh, which is where the name “Corpse Flower” comes from; the smell will be available for visitors as members of the Orange Coast College Horticultural Department state they have been forced to turn on fans for four to five hours per day to be able to work in the growing environment.
Visitors are being asked to provide a donation of just $3 to access the flower, which is on display in the Administrative Building of the Orange Coast College campus, which has regular visiting hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Orange Coast College has announced visiting hours to view the “Corpse Flower” known as “Little Dougie” will be extended to 10 p.m. each day once the plant comes into bloom; the 24 to 48 hour flowering of Amorphophallus Titanum usually takes place in the evening and will last for between 24 and 48 hours.
This is not the first “Corpse Flower” to bloom at Orange Coast College, in 2014, the specimen known as “Little John” flowered and saw thousands of visitors visit the campus to view and smell the flower. One of the reasons for the popularity of the “Corpse Flower” is the fact the first flowering comes after around a decade of life and is followed by the flower appearing every three to five years in the years following the first bloom.
The Horticultural Department of Orange Coast College has recently seen its areas of expertise grow with the addition of the Rabbit Island site in the Georgia Strait off British Columbia, Canada. Within the 38 acre site, Orange Coast College has developed a sailing program and island ecology courses taking place largely through the Summer semester.
