AJ Khubani Shows Lisa Marie Latino BulbHead’s Best Products

AJ Khubani brought some innovative consumer products into the #HipNJ studio to show Lisa Marie Latino the latest developments from his Fairfield-based company, BulbHead. In addition to the company’s e-commerce website BulbHead.com, all of the products displayed in the video are available from purchase through television advertising and in major retail stores like Walmart, Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

As far back as Khubani can remember, he loved developing gadgets. The company is in its 35th year of business having launched in 1983 after Khubani graduated from Montclair State. He credits his grim outlook on career possibilities and a bad economy for steering him towards developing the business. Khubani has successfully navigated the evolution of different medias having successfully advertised in print, television and now on social media.

Here are the cool products Khubani brought into the studio:

Egg Sitter Support Cushion

Engineered for the most comfortable seated experience, the pad is made with a honeycomb design and a sugarcane extract material. The cushion earns its name because you can actually sit on an uncooked egg and not break it!

Red Copper Flipwich

From the Red Copper line, this product is a double-sided, stovetop press for hugging together sandwiches, paninis and much more.

Red Copper 5 Minute Chef

Another Red Copper line product, the device is a countertop cooker that can be utilized to prepare just about anything. Chicken breasts and omelets are ready in a flash! AJ’s favorites are the endless desert possibilities.

PedEgg Easy Curve Foot File

BulbHead’s most popular product, the PedEgg has sold over 50 million products worldwide since its release in 2008. The tenth anniversary version of the foot file has new features like more micro-files and an 18-karat gold plating for antimicrobial properties.

Battle Vision Sunglasses

Developed from the popular features of the best-selling Amber Vision sunglasses, the new version utilizes the same blue-blocking technology and polarization for a crisp, clear view. The glasses are great for minimizing glare and safe driving. Every pair comes with a spare set because you always lose your sunglasses!

Bavarian Edge Knive Sharpener

This dual-edged knife sharpener is the world’s best product for sharpening your knives. The sharpener can renew any knife, even serrated knives. Khubani performed a quick demo for Lisa Marie who happened to have a knife that needed sharpening!

Khubani’s passion is making great products at competitive prices. All of the products displayed in the studio can be purchased for less than $40!

BulbHead has a special page for aspiring inventors to submit a product idea for consideration on their website.

Introducing The Bergen County Bible by Heather Zwain

Home is love. Home is family, friends, memories and experiences. It’s a feeling. A moment or several moments. A lifestyle. And for Heather Zwain, home has always been Bergen County.

HEATHERZWAIN.COM was created out of a desire to provide the community with access, insider tips and truthful and relatable information that they have never had before.

“You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the professionals and personalities who make this a fabulous place to live, shop, work and dine,” says Creator and Editor-in-Chief Heather Zwain, who spent the last 13 years as the Fashion Editor, Stylist and on-camera personality for Bergen County. “You’ll be in-the-know about everything, trust me.”

Zwain, 34, built her career from scratch at a local magazine and created her brand as the go-to fashion guru for Bergen. She has the expertise, knowledge, experience and connections to provide the community with the best resource guide to celebrate the county, and a little beyond from time to time.

When asked why she chose now to launch a new website, she emphatically replied, “I was unexpectedly laid off from my job and chose to turn a negative into a positive. Starting my own website feels like the natural next step in this new chapter of my life. Bergen County is filled with exciting, sophisticated and fun-loving people who want to stay current on fashion and beauty trends, remain fit and know about the people and places who make this area so wonderful to live in. They want one, convenient source to find out where to eat, play, shop and enjoy their lives. HEATHERZWAIN.COM is that source.”

As part of her purpose, Zwain strives to help others feel confident and stylish. She is a fashion veteran and celebrity interviewer who has talked style and dressed some of the biggest names in the industry including: Tim Gunn, Terron Schaefer, Stacy London, Catherine Malandrino, Stuart Weitzman, Mary J. Blige, Odell Beckham Jr., Lil Kim, Rachel Roy, Ken Downing, Yansi Fugel, Marc Bouwer, David Meister, Mark Badgley and James Mischka, Ivanka Trump, Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy, Eli Manning, Carl Banks, Derek Jeter, Curtis Grandson, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, CC and Amber Sabathia, Justin Tuck, Jeff Feagles, Tate Donovan, Daphne Oz, Johnny Damon, Emme, Kristine Johnson, Chris Wragge, Martha MacCallum, Tracy Wolfson, Lori Stokes, Geraldo and Erica Rivera, Bethenny Frankel, Giuliana Rancic, Elizabeth Gilbert, the RHONJ cast, the Jerseylicious cast, Jay Huguley, Malaak Compton-Rock, Ilya Kovalchuk, Leslie Greene, Guy Bedarida, and many more.

Zwain has enlisted the help of former colleagues and friends, whom she believes provide a wealth of knowledge of style and beauty, fitness and health, dining and entertaining and the culture and history of the county. “I want my site to really help other brands and professionals grow their personal businesses, while all coming together for one great purpose –– to celebrate the community we live in and love,” says Zwain. “There are so many amazing people in Bergen, it’s time to join forces and celebrate them.”

MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid On Media in the Trump Era

MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss the relationship between the media and President Trump.

“What we have right now,” Reid says, “is a president who sees himself as an opponent of the media.” She explains that President Trump only sees media that praises him as valid.

She states that President Trump will continue to tell his followers that media that does not cover him with adulation is invalid. She says that at this time, a relationship between the White House and the media is nonexistent.
