Each winning design was produced into an 8-foot by 5-foot flag.


For most of the year, the flags surrounding the Rink at Rockefeller Center represent the nations recognized by the United Nations. For special occasions, all of the flags are uniform, such as American flags on the Fourth of July, rainbow flags during the annual Pride celebration, and silver and gold flags during the holiday season.

WAKE UP. KICK ASS. REPEAT. – Outlaw Soaps

In the wild and woody foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, a small but diligent band of outlaws forge soaps, lotions, colognes, and other products so powerfully awesome they could change your LIFE.

Outlaw Soaps a company for adventurous people, by adventurous people. They live like the products they make: they love campfire, whiskey, and ill-advised explosions… standing a little too close, but being sure to wear fire-proof clothes.

We know there’s a time for quiet conversations and a time for asking your friend to hold your beer because you’ve got a great idea. (note: it’s never a great idea… and that’s why there’s YouTube)

The founders, Russ and Danielle have built a business around what they find fun and interesting. It’s not for everyone… They get a lot of bruises in the regular course of life. Their hair is usually a mess and they probably have dirty fingernails.

But it’s their life, and it’s pretty darn fun. If that sounds fun to you (or someone you know), you’ll probably like their products. If not, well, there are a million other companies for you, and that’s totally fine. No hard feelings.

This personal care purveyor puts the “Yippee Ki Yay” back in your day with soaplotionbody washdeodorantsolid cologne, and more; all made in the USA. Outlaw creates the scent profiles that help you get down with your bad self. Get rodeo-ready with scents like Fire in the HoleBlazing Saddles, and The Gambler. Individual products start at $10 and Bi-monthly subscription boxes ranging from $16-$55.  Also available at Amazon.com.
FIRE IN THE HOLE CAMPFIRE BODY WASH

Explosively Awesome!

  • Smells of campfire, black powder, sagebrush, dirt, bacon, and whiskey.
  • Made with love and laughter (and all-vegan oils.)
  • Bruh, do you even soap?
  • Safer than lighting a fire in your bathroom.
  • No explosives training necessary.
  • Feels like you’re camping (without the nighttime wombat attacks.)

FIRE IN THE HOLE CAMPFIRE SOLID COLOGNE

Explosively Awesome!

  • Smells of campfire, black powder, sagebrush, dirt, bacon, and whiskey.
  • Made with love and laughter (and other natural ingredients)
  • Bruh, do you even cologne?
  • Safer than lighting a fire in your bathroom.
  • No explosives training necessary.
  • Feels like you’re camping (without the nighttime wombat attacks.)

Kaboom!

Know what that sound is? It’s the sound of beginning your amazing day layering on the gorgeous, earthy scents of campfire, whiskey, and the outdoors. Fire in the Hole Natural Campfire Body Wash and cologne let you go camping without even leaving the bathroom. (Which will remind you how much you like to go camping, and then increase the number of times you go camping.) So imbibe freely, light some fireworks and suds up with soap and sexy with cologne that smells like campfire.

LUST IN THE DUST MILLED BAR SOAP

The desert Western romance everywhere you go.

  • Smells of desert sage, sandalwood, and a lightly smoky campfire.
  • Makes your skin silky smooth and so (so!) kissable.
  • Delightfully sudsy.
  • Feels like showering outdoors without everyone judging your technique.
  • Made with love and laughter (and all-vegan oils.)
  • Feels like a journey through the desert to a sultry oasis rendezvous.

You’ve been on that lusty dusty trail for quite some time. Sometimes you ride solo, and other times you partner up. This is one of them ‘other’ times. It’s your old flame from back home, all grown up and comin’ toward, a twinkle in their eye and no ring on their finger. There are pleasantries, but you both know the deal. You’re drawn to each other like magnetized bunnies. It’s hot. Too hot. Ouch. But it’s going to happen right here, right now on the ground.

THE GAMBLER WHISKEY MILLED BAR SOAP

  • Soap that smells like bourbon, tobacco, and coffee, for that wake-me-up-with-whiskey feeling
  • Formulated with an all-vegan combination of oils that is both delightfully sudsy in the shower and leaves your skin silky smooth and, if you wish, sooooo kissable (though we’re not getting all up in your boundaries)
  • May make you late to work if your partner catches you coming out of the shower

What a fricken’ amazing way to shower your morning to a brilliant start.

This isn’t any ol’ sock-ya-in-the-mouth-with-whiskey hangover cure soap, this is a smooth blend of fine bourbon whiskey mixed with rich tobacco, and finished with a smooth finish of leather.

It’s like a relaxing massage of scents, washing away your concerns and troubles of the day. It won’t make you smell like a distillery, either.

Give it a try, satisfaction 100% guaranteed that you’ll love it.

About Outlaw Soaps

New Augmented Reality Game Lets Players Buy and Sell Real World Properties

Become a virtual real estate mogul in New York, San Diego,
or anywhere on earth with Landlord Go.

Walking down the street you notice something has changed. You take out your phone hastily, to check the available properties around you. Yes! There they are! New shares and you’re the first one to get them. You don’t think twice, cause you know you must have them! It’s not the first time when on your way to work you come across such valuable finds. We’re all part of this virtual map. With more than 3 billion mobile devices on the planet today, trillions of data trails are left behind unused. Now you can enjoy this mixture of digital and real world in the Landlord GO game.

Landlord Go is a brand new game by Reality – that leverages these digital “footprints” in a fun and exciting way, allowing players to buy, sell, and collect rent on some of the world’s most famous buildings and landmarks. With over 1 million players worldwide, it’s the first real-world augmented reality game that uses real buildings, real people, and real prices to turn your city into an action-packed strategy game. With more than 33 376 players already making deals for virtual ownership of the more than 132 751 in San Diego already, there’s no shortage of fierce competition ready for action.

You walk your neighborhood every day, seeing familiar landscapes and buildings. Now you can view those daily sights in a whole new way by owning a virtual piece of your community.

Whether you’re starting small or have grand visions to own the Geisel Library in San Diego or the Empire State Building in New York City, they’re yours for the taking with Landlord Go.

Do you have unique knowledge of a part of your city that few others know? That local intel can translate into big profits in Landlord Go. If a new coffee shop is opening in your neighborhood and you think it’s poised to become the next Starbucks, put in a bid for it, and start raking in the rent payments from the crowds lined up outside the door. Using a massive pool of data, including detailed information about more than half a billion real world properties, Landlord Go connects the user to their city in an exciting and innovative new way that no other game can offer.

Players can start small and quickly create a vast real estate empire through savvy investing. Put properties on the market, or engage in furious bidding wars with other players, recreating the experience of competing in the thrilling real estate market right from their phone.

Landlord Go is incredibly accurate, reflecting real-world values of properties using details like distance from the city center and building amenities. By using our own data set combined with NASA satellite scans showing nighttime light emissions, we’ve created one of the most realistic and data-driven property dealing games ever conceived.

You can really get the feeling that the level of realism is truly what sets Landlord Go apart. Anytime another player visits your property in real life, they pay you rent in the game. The more visitors your property gets, the higher its value. Using a proprietary AI and data platform called Big Dots, we’re able to add real-world data to any desktop and mobile apps.

The game is exciting as players see their fortunes grow and engage in sky-high value transactions, competing with other players for dominance in the real estate market. There’s nothing quite like it available today, and nothing that even comes close to the level of accuracy and detail found in Landlord Go.
