National Lemon Juice Day!

Written by , Posted in WorldWide

When Life Gifts You Lemons, Make Lemonade!  Today isNational Lemon Juice Day, let’s celebrate!

·         Health: Lemon juice has several health benefits such as alleviating indigestion, constipation and throat infections. To cut the soar tastes, squeeze lemon juice into a cup of water (warm or cold);

·         Beauty: Naturally highlight your hair with lemons. Instead of using chemical-packed dyes, use fresh lemons or lemon juice to lighten up your stresses. On unwashed hair, apply lemon juice to the hair you want highlighted, then stand in the sun for at least 30 minutes. Be sure to use sunscreen to prevent skin damage. After highlights are complete, use a moisturizing conditioner on hair to keep it from drying out;

·         Make Tasty Drinks: Give your traditional lemonade some flavor by adding additional vegetables and fruits. Using a high-performance juicer like Omega, you can create detoxifying and tasty juices by adding kale, ginger or carrots;

·         Household Cleaning: Lemons can be used for removing rust from kitchen and bathroom faucets as well as desanitize sponges. The remove rust, simply combine lemon juice and salt until it reaches a toothpaste consistency. Scrub onto stainless steel and copper fixtures. To remove odors and bacteria from sponges, soak in vinegar and lemon juice for 2 minutes.

@FirstDescents helping cancer patients to get out and LIVE IT!

Written by , Posted in WorldWide

While at BackBone Media Showroom NYC I spoke with someone from an organization called First Descents. I love what they were doing!

 

Screen Shot 2014 05 15 at 1.01.25 PM 300x187 @FirstDescents helping cancer patients to get out and LIVE IT! Screen Shot 2014 05 15 at 1.01.50 PM 300x212 @FirstDescents helping cancer patients to get out and LIVE IT!

A little history on the organization, First Descents was founded in 2001 by pro whitewater kayaker Brad Ludden.  The organization provides free outdoor adventure programs to young adults (ages 18-39) who are surviving and fighting cancer – regardless of physical challenges, diagnosis or prognosis – proving that they are not their cancer and motivated to live their lives above it – and hopefully continue  to use outdoor activity as part of their ongoing treatment and survivorship. These programs are kept small and range from week–long kayaking, climbing and surfing trips all over the world. First Descents has hosted over 3,000 young adults with cancer since it began, and with a wait-list of over 1,000 people this year, it is definitely growing.

The Out Living It documentary below (2.5 minute clip, filmed in 2012 and winner of a few noteworthy film awards) recounts the story of young adults living with cancer who come together for a week-long climbing experience in the Colorado Rockies.

Bitty Style: Packit Freezable Baby Bottle Bag

Written by , Posted in WorldWide

It is officially summer in NYC , our first with our lil D,and are super lucky to have my mother live near by so babysitting is no problem. The only thing I need to bring to her is bottles, and a milk stash to keep at her house. We were given a cooler bag as a hand-me down which was great-except that I have forgotten to add the cooler packs on more than one occasion.

 

Blame Mom Brain!  So you can imagine how thrilled I was to come across the Packit Freezable baby bottle bag! Just pop the whole bag in the freezer and you are good to go. Super easy to wipe down and clean, and it folds nicely, so storing it is not an issue. Brooklyn problems…..we lack cabinets and closets, so anything that can be folded and tucked away is always a bonus.

 They have a full line of freezable insulated bags, lunch, snack, picnic, and wine!  Everything to help you #StayCool this summer!

@FORD MOTOR COMPANY LOWERS FUEL ECONOMY RATINGS FOR SIX VEHICLES

Written by , Posted in WorldWide

Screen Shot 2014 06 15 at 10.54.38 PM @FORD MOTOR COMPANY LOWERS FUEL ECONOMY RATINGS FOR SIX VEHICLES

FORD MOTOR COMPANY LOWERS FUEL ECONOMY RATINGS FOR SIX VEHICLES

  • Ford identified an error with fuel economy ratings for certain vehicles through its internal testing and notified the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Ford worked with EPA as the agency retested the vehicles, which resulted in lower fuel economy ratings for Ford’s 2013- and 2014-model year hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles, as well as most 2014-model year Fiestas
  • The company apologizes to its customers, and will make goodwill payments to owners of the approximately 200,000 affected U.S. vehicles for the difference between the previous and revised ratings
  • Ford reviewed its entire line up to determine the vehicles that required further testing and revised the fuel economy ratings for the affected vehicles. No other fuel economy ratings adjustments are planned

VIDEO WITH RAJ NAIR, GROUP VICE PRESIDENT, GLOBAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Ford Motor Company announced today it is lowering the fuel economy ratings for its 2013- and 2014-model year hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles, as well as most 2014-model year Fiestas.

Ford identified an error with fuel economy ratings on certain vehicles through its internal testing and notified EPA. The company worked with EPA as the agency retested the vehicles to determine the correct fuel economy ratings.

“Ford is absolutely committed to delivering top fuel economy and accurate information,” said Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO. “We apologize to our customers and will provide goodwill payments to affected owners. We also are taking steps to improve our processes and prevent issues like this from happening again.”

Ford reviewed its entire line up to determine the vehicles that required further testing and revised the fuel economy ratings for the affected vehicles. No other label adjustments are planned.

“This is our error. When we see an issue, we address it,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “That is why we notified EPA and lowered the fuel economy ratings for these vehicles.”

Fuel Economy Testing

Fuel economy testing involves many factors. Ford’s error was specific to a factor called “Total Road Load Horsepower”, or TRLHP. TRLHP is a vehicle-specific resistance level used in vehicle dynamometer testing that determines fuel economy ratings. TRLHP is established through engineering models that are validated through vehicle testing, including physical track tests referred to as coastdown testing.

Use of these engineering models is a common industry practice, consistent with EPA regulations. These models normally are more reliable and consistent than physical vehicle tests, which can exhibit variability.

As an ongoing practice, Ford conducts tests on production vehicles to validate its engineering models. Based on coastdown testing of the Fusion Hybrid, the company found the TRLHP did not match the values used for the dynamometer testing.

Upon further testing, Ford also discovered an error specific to how we correlate wind tunnel results into the TRLHP model. Ford’s error was the result of a recent process change, which the company has since corrected.

Ford has now validated through physical vehicle testing the TRLHP for the vehicles affected by this error and also has instituted enhanced validation tests for future vehicles to prevent reoccurrence of this error.

New Fuel Economy Ratings and Customer Information

Ford has communicated to its dealers that new fuel economy labels will be available in approximately six days and that dealers may continue selling the vehicles until the new labels are received.

Ford estimates that approximately 200,000 of these vehicles have been sold or leased to customers in the United States. Affected Ford and Lincoln owners and lessees in the United States will receive a goodwill payment for the estimated average fuel cost of the difference between the two fuel economy labels, as shown in the table below.

Affected U.S. fleet owners and affected owners outside of the United States will be contacted by their local Ford representatives.

Customers with questions can contact the Ford Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332 or visit:www.ford.com/mpglabel  and www.lincoln.com/mpglabel.
