Electric-Hybrid cars may no longer be the quite driving machine.

Comments Off on Electric-Hybrid cars may no longer be the quite driving machine.

Advocates for the blind are getting their wish, after automakers agree to make electric cars nosier. The almost noiseless vehicle is endangering the lives of the hearing impaired, while they try and cross the street.

Groups joined together and went to congress with a proposal to make hybrid cars have a slight noise, and congress agreed.

“As a person who walks my dog in Virginia, where there are no sidewalks, I’ve been startled by hybrid cars, too,” said Gloria Bergquist, vice president of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.

Little electric car

A study that was conducted last year by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that hybrid cars hit pedestrians more often than normal gas cars when the pedestrian cannot see the car.

The sound the car would make cannot be customized either, thus driving down the street blasting the “Notre Dame Fight Song” won’t fly. The sound hasn’t yet been determined but the sound will only be heard at low speeds. The NHFA said cars operating at high speeds have enough sound from the wind and engine noise.

Expect to see the new law put into the Motor Safety Act of 2010, a bill is currently moving through congress.

Fitness is a way of life that many people are new to. Being fit, eating right, and exercising is something that many people have to learn. Even with all the ways to get fit, it can be hard to choose particular methods. Here are a few effective techniques for keeping fit.

One way you can keep your fitness level up while on the go is to work your stomach out while driving. Simply tensing your stomach muscles for five count then relaxing, multiple times over the course of your commute will not only make the time pass quicker, but will help to tone that stomach in otherwise wasted time.

A goal is a great thing to have in a fitness scheme. Remember that achieving a goal is, above all, an opportunity to set a new goal. Fitness is, overall, a goal for life, not for a brief time. After climbing to a peak that has been focused on, selecting the next, higher peak to tackle will keep a regimen aimed towards life-long fitness.

In order to maximize your weight fitness routine, try loading up your bench press with 25% more weight than you could max out at. Do not attempt to complete the exercise, just hold the weight above you with a spotter’s assistance. Next, take the weight off and show what you’ve got.

Choose the right shoes for your fitness program. The right shoe can make a difference in how far you run and how stable you are when you’re lifting weights. Make sure you look for shoes later in the day when the food has widened. Make sure there is ample room to move your toes around and that there is a half-inch additional space for your big toe.

Staying fit takes a lot of hard work and information. Use these tips to help jump start a fit lifestyle that will result in longevity, health, and happiness. Using just a few of these tips can produce major results as long as there is a sense of commitment and dedication to fitness.…

Comments Off on There will be no snakes on this plane says one US airlines.

Frontier airlines, which is a small US airlines that operators more than 550 flights from Milwaukee’s General Mitchell Internation Airport, Denvers Internation Airport, and Kansas city International Airport, will be charging $75 each way for pets to fly.

Rabits, small dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, and household birds will be allowed to fly if they are in an approved carrier that fits under the passenger’s seat. Snakes will have to sit this one out, as will insects, spiders and amphibians.

If you have bigger animals that weigh 20 pounds or more they can fly in the tail section of the plane for  $150. The airline in the past allowed pets on their planes but outlawed them for the last two years.

“We have spent a lot of time listening to our customers and determining what would make their travel experience even better,” said Ian Arthur, vice president of marketing and branding.

“We received a lot of feedback on our pet policy and determined that pets would be a welcome addition to the Frontier travel experience.”

Getting fit is not just about getting healthy. If you set yourself good fitness goals and plan a fitness program that appeals to you, getting fit can be fun and enjoyable, as well as good for you. This article will give you a few handy tips to send you on your way to a fitter, happier lifestyle.

Switch up your routine. If you have a regular exercise routine or exercise using some sort of circuit at your local gym, try to mix it up a little. You might stop seeing results as fast if your muscles are given time to adapt to a routine once you stick with it long enough.

When looking for another way to improve fitness sometimes one needs to look no further than their pet dog. By taking the dog on walks around the neighborhood or specific trails an individual can increase the amount of exercise they and their pet get. Apart from all the extra exercise and the benefits from that one will strengthen the bond between owner and their pet.

If you find yourself stuck behind a computer every day, make sure to get away from it at least once every hour. Do some stretching. Walk around. Do some jumping jacks or a few quick pushups. Try not to spend most of your day just sitting in one place.

To help you perform your best during your workout, you need to stay hydrated. Losing even one percent of your body weight through sweat can place added stress to your cardiovascular system. Two hours before working out drink at least 16 ounces of water. During your workout drink five to ten ounces every 15 to 20 minutes. When you are finished with your workout drink at least 16 ounces of water for each pound of weight loss due to sweat.

Tips like these are just the beginning of your fitness journey. Incorporate the ones that feel appropriate and reasonable, and do not worry about fitness ideas that do not seem to work for you. There is a lot more fitness information out there. More than enough for you to build an enjoyable, easy fitness program for yourself.
