Chevy Volt Upgrades Battery Range by 40%

"Chevrolet announced today that the 2016 Volt, the next generation of the plug-in hybrid model that’s so far sold fitfully but its dedicated owners adore, will deliver 53 miles of driving range from its improved lithium-ion batteries before its gasoline engine ever sips a drop of gasoline. The all-new Volt’s battery-only range represents a nearly a 40-percent upgrade in the driving metric current Volt owners most cherish.

The company says the new Volt’s improvement in electric-only driving range means that more than 90 percent of trips won’t require a drop of gasoline. The Volt’s unique design – well, not quite so unique anymore – means that unlike electric cars powered solely by batteries, there is no “range anxiety” about running out of juice. When the Volt’s battery power is depleted, a small and efficient gasoline engine fires up to generate electricity for the Volt’s drive motors and can help recharge its batteries.

All told, the 2016 Volt, which goes on sale this fall starting at $26,495 after a $7,500 federal tax credit, can travel 420 miles when its battery and gasoline range are combined. If you can’t find a gas station – or a plug – sometime over that distance, you deserve to be stranded.

There are other plug-in hybrid models out there. But they’ll either cost a whole lot more than the 2016 Volt or their puny battery packs deliver less than half the Volt’s driving range."

Japanese are Supporting Rural Towns and Reaping Tax Benefits

Unfortunately, it's a zero-sum game as the rural towns make money but the cities in which the Japanese donors live get less taxes. But there are a lot of happy people both in the rural towns and the people getting gifts for donations.

#Japan   #taxes  
City dwellers are contributing tax-deductible donations to far-flung, struggling municipalities, which in return send out local specialties.

New Photo of Earth from NASA Shows North and Central America

"A NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite has returned its first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth from one million miles away.

This color image of Earth was taken by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four megapixel CCD camera and telescope. The image was generated by combining three separate images to create a photographic-quality image. The camera takes a series of 10 images using different narrowband filters -- from ultraviolet to near infrared -- to produce a variety of science products. The red, green and blue channel images are used in these color images.

The image was taken July 6, 2015, showing North and Central America. The central turquoise areas are shallow seas around the Caribbean islands. This Earth image shows the effects of sunlight scattered by air molecules, giving the image a characteristic bluish tint. The EPIC team is working to remove this atmospheric effect from subsequent images. Once the instrument begins regular data acquisition, EPIC will provide a daily series of Earth images allowing for the first time study of daily variations over the entire globe. These images, available 12 to 36 hours after they are acquired, will be posted to a dedicated web page by September 2015.

The primary objective of DSCOVR, a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force, is to maintain the nation’s real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities, which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of space weather alerts and forecasts from NOAA.

Nice sound track, so be ready to amplify your sound.

It is a Prequel with the original stars of the 2001 movie. So yes they look older than teenagers.

Netflix Original Programming continues to rock. The strategy they began with House of Cards is drawing in customers and hot, hot, hot.

The Replies on This Quora Thread Could Be a Book About Steve Jobs

I want to come back and savor this when I have time so I am putting it here. 

The few entries I read from people who have worked close enough to Steve Jobs to sit in a small room with him are fascinating. They are also loooong and I am buried in a client deadline. But I definitely want to read all of these.

Enjoy!

Hilarious Article Defining Selfies, Jason Feifer NYTimes Opinion Piece Hits Home Run

Former FastCompany and current Maxim editor +Jason Feifer hit a home run submitting an opinion piece for +The New York Times on #selfies . He was inspired by the misuse of the word "selfie".  The results will have you laughing out loud. I know the feeling. I was once inspired to write an article on "How to Pronounce Karaoke" after watching news reporters one after another pronounce it incorrectly during the holiday season. My 2008 article still ranks on the first page of Google. http://itsdifferent4girls.com/2008/12/how-to-pronounce-karaoke/ 

Jason's home run is evidenced by making it to the home page of the NYTimes - illustrated in his tweet here: https://twitter.com/heyfeifer/status/624024727938596864

Been looking for that boost to your Personal Brand by guest posting for a big media outlet. Maybe try an opinion piece? Note they only use his name - no description but he is fortunate to have a unique, easy to google name.

I am pinging +Jason Feifer's second G+ account here and inviting him to come back to us on #GooglePlus

The Good Old Days of Twitter 2008 - 2009

In this article I reminisce about the intimacy and access of Twitter in 2008 and 2009. Access is of course most effectively carried out in person, so I'm glad that I have been attending conferences during that era and since.

Pictured in this photo is Pete Cashmore of +Mashable
Also pictured within is Don Lemon of +CNN, +Marsha Collier, +Mari Smith, +Shelly Palmer, +Stefanie Michaels, +iJustine and +Barb Dybwad.

I have only been seeing Dr. Meredith Levine for two years but my experience with her has been excellent. She, and the entire office, is extremely professional, trustworthy and reliable. My previous periodontist was the dentist to Arnold Schwarzenegger and was fabulous. I have high standards. I had to leave my previous dentist because he retired. Dr. Levine's office is a pleasure to visit. They are in the penthouse of a Century City office/medical building with a great view. I was fortunate to find Dr. Levine through the recommendation of another doctor who was a patient of Dr. Levine's. That doctor is a leader in his own field and had given us another ace doctor recommendation, after which we felt comfortable that we could rely on his recommendations. I am based in Hawaii but it is worth it to plan my travel around visiting Dr. Levine regularly in Los Angeles.

Mexican fine dining in a stylish atmosphere. Tortilla Republic is an excellent restaurant. We have been there many times and have never had an issue with the service. They make their own tortillas and chips. You can tell they avoid using processed ingredients in their food or drinks. Only place on Kauai I know of with an extensive tequila list, including Avion. Pretty people at the bars both upstairs and downstairs. Recently, they have great live music on Tuesday and Thursday nights.

We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner several times at 22North Restaurant. We really appreciate the 22°North dining concept.  Their "Farm to Table" motto is a reality here, with many of the ingredients grown on farms very near the restaurant.  Fresh goat cheese, free range eggs and meat from Kauai sources make the menu really interesting. There is a chalk board at the entrance listing the currently available local vegetables and fruits being served. (There is a similar drink-related board in the bar) The restaurant is set in a nice, quiet, historic building with tables facing three sides of a central outdoor garden. Management has made a commitment to recycling throughout the restaurant: water glasses are crafted from wine bottle bottoms, coasters are recycled cardboard, candle holders are made from recycled glass,  and the table tops are made from zinc printing plates. The food is prepared with care and includes several seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes.  Some of our favorites were those that used local ahi, a pork ragu, and fresh salads. I've added a couple of food photos from our visits. The menu is constantly changing to reflect what fresh ingredients may be available on any particular day, so it's hard to recommend a specific dish.  We suggest that when you arrive, you ask the friendly staff what their favorites may be.  We have always had good service here. The bag of free doughnuts that you get for checking in on Yelp are like the warm beignets you get in New Orleans. Yummy. In terms of price performance, at lunch they offer some inexpensive options. Coupled with the beautiful setting and service, that is certainly a bargain. Dinner is a fine dining experience but prices are not out of line so I would say that price performance for dinner is also acceptable.
