All the Ford Brand Accounts across Europe now have custom URLs

Most are also verified. I'm hoping this will have two effects:

▶ Firstly that consumers can be confident that any profile is the official profile for +Ford Motor Company in that country.
▶ Secondly that a shiny new custom URL will encourage the account managers to use the channel on a more regular basis.
That can be as simple as sharing some of the +Ford Europe content with a translation: creating a discussion space for their audience, or by exploring the creative and social opportunities for Ford on their own.

Whichever they choose I am always available to support the account managers:
plus.google.com/communities/117142896170583502672

Custom URLs for the accounts are:
google.com/+FordUK
google.com/+FordDeutschland
google.com/+FordFrance
google.com/+FordItalia
google.com/+FordSpain
google.com/+FordAustria
google.com/+FordBelgium

Judging from the look on this child’s face, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, although quite why this lady is handing out presents from the back of a car is anyone’s guess.

Colonel John Paul Stapp was an U.S. Air Force officer, flight surgeon, physician, and pioneer in studying the effects of acceleration and deceleration forces on humans.

In this picture, taken in 1955 at Ford’s Dearborn test track in Detroit, Stapp can be seen experiencing extreme deceleration while strapped to a rocket sled; it looks painful enough, but pales into insignificance compared to his other g-force-based antics.

The U.S. Air Force had been using rocket sleds to study the effects of g-force on humans as early as 1945, and Stapp was one of the most frequent volunteers, sustaining a fracture of his right wrist on two separate runs.

Stapp's research on the decelerator had profound implications for both civilian and military aviation. He proved that if the seat was strong enough and the pilot properly restrained by a harnesses they could walk away from many crashes.

On his 29th and last ride, Stapp demonstrated that with adequate harnessing a human could withstand at least 46.2 g. This is the highest known acceleration voluntarily encountered by a human. On December 10, 1954, Stapp reached a speed of 632 mph (1,017 km/h), which broke the land speed record and made him the fastest man on earth.

In addition to his bravery on the rocket sled, Stapp was a keen collector of aphorisms and adages, and published a collection of these in 1992. He is credited with defining the principle known as Murphy's law: "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong," as well as outlining Stapp's Law, also known as Stapp's Ironic Paradox that states: "the universal aptitude for ineptitude makes any human accomplishment an incredible miracle."

Think like a racing driver 👉 ford.to/Think2Win 👍

According to Ford's latest investigation the secret to succeeding in high pressure situations might be found in the minds of racing drivers.
