first_img Aston Martin The Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato stuns even in renderings General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado 81 Photos Car Industry 69 Photos Comments Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 1 Tags 68 Photos GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. Aston Martin,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2020 Hyundai Sonata first drive: An attractive and compelling midsize sedan Comment 18 Photos Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 71 Photos 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck 3 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 26 Photos Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky.center_img 10 Photos 12 Photos 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Superluxury Cars Sports Cars Coupes Share your voice Enlarge ImageZagato’s latest creation is based on the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. Aston Martin In September, Aston Martin announced it would celebrate the 100th anniversary of Italian design house Zagato with the launch of both a DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and a DBS GT Zagato. While back then we had just a simple line drawing to spark our imagination, Aston Martin on Monday revealed more detailed renderings of the new car.The new model is based on the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, which is quite the looker already, but Zagato’s handiwork makes the new DBS GT Zagato even lovelier. Note the Zagato-signature double-bubble roof and hood, the wraparound windshield and the dramatic rounded tail. The roof plunges down to the rear of the car, replacing the standard rear window. There are new front fenders, new wheels, a new grille and even restyled headlights. The basic shape of the DBS Superleggera carries through, but Zagato’s interpretation is even more dramatic.The car forms half of the DBZ Centenary Collection, with the other half the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation. Like prior DB4 Continuation models, it’ll be a brand-new version of the classic DB4 model. The two cars will be sold together, with each of the 19 pairs planned to start at £6 million, or nearly $8 million. As the included renderings show, the DB4 GT Zagato builds on the design of the beautiful original.Aston Martin and Zagato first collaborated nearly six decades ago, so the DBZ Centenerary Collection is certainly something special. Aston will build the DBS Superleggera at its Gaydon headquarters, with the first deliveries to customers slated for the fourth quarter of 2020. The first DB4 GT Zagato Continuations will arrive in customer hands about a year earlier, built at Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, UK. Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama.

first_imgSpencer Platt/Getty ImagesThere are 59,000 structurally deficient bridges around the country.The nation’s roads, bridges, airports, water and transit systems are in pretty bad shape, according to the civil engineers who plan and design such infrastructure.The new report card from the American Society of Civil Engineers gives the infrastructure of the United States a D-plus.That nearly failing grade should boost President Trump’s efforts to get a plan to invest up to $1 trillion in rebuilding everything from highways and bridges to tunnels and dams, even though the engineers’ group is recommending something the president and his party are unlikely to support: a huge increase in the gasoline tax.It’s not as though many of our bridges are about to collapse or our cars likely to be swallowed up by potholes, but according to ASCE, a significant number of the critical structures and systems that we rely on to get us to and from work, that provide us with clean drinking water, and that protect us from floods are in pretty bad shape.Take the nation’s roads, for example, which Greg DiLoreto, a former president of ASCE, says get the same disappointing grade as four years ago: a D.“More than 2 out of every 5 miles of America’s urban interstates are congested, and traffic delays cost this country $160 billion in wasted fuel and time,” says DiLoreto.Because roads and highways are out of date and unable to handle today’s demand, DiLoreto says, “on average, Americans waste 43 hours a year stuck in traffic. Or in other words, one in your two weeks’ vacation, gone.”He says the nation’s aging airports are increasingly congested, too.“It is expected that by 2020, 24 of our 30 major airports will experience Thanksgiving Day peak traffic at least once a week,” DiLoreto says.In addition, America’s water systems are leaking trillions of gallons of water, more than 2,000 dams are at high risk of failure, and there are 59,000 structurally deficient bridges around the country.“Structurally deficient doesn’t mean they are unsafe,” DiLoreto says. “But it does mean they require more repair and more frequent inspections.”Mass transit earns the worst grade of all, a D-minus.“The nation’s transit systems are chronically underfunded, resulting in aging infrastructure and a $90 billion maintenance backlog,” DiLoreto says.Getting all of the nation’s infrastructure into relatively good shape by the year 2025 would cost $4.59 trillion, according to the ASCE report; that’s $2 trillion more than is budgeted by local, state and federal governments to address infrastructure needs.ASCE Executive Director Tom Smith says the chronic failure to invest in infrastructure is a huge drain on the nation’s economy, putting American jobs and lives at risk.“Unfortunately, we have a tendency to wait for disasters and be reactive, and what we want to do is be proactive and not reactive,” Smith says. “Because when we’re reactive, it ends up costing significantly more than when we’re proactive.”The engineers’ group applauds President Trump for bringing needed attention to fixing the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, both during his campaign and since taking office. But it also notes his call to spend up to $1 trillion on infrastructure is not enough and that his plan to leverage private investment is inadequate.“We, the American people, will have to pay for it,” says ASCE President Norma Jean Mattei. “There’s no magic wand to address this crisis, no infrastructure money tree, no infrastructure private sector angel.”The ASCE is calling for a huge, 25 cents per gallon increase in the federal gasoline tax to help pay for infrastructure improvements. The group notes that the current tax of 18.4 cents per gallon hasn’t been raised since 1993 and so hasn’t kept up with inflation and growing needs.But recent efforts to raise the gas tax even just a few cents or a nickel have been political nonstarters with Republicans in Congress. So a proposal to more than double the motor fuel tax is not likely to get off the ground.White House spokesman Sean Spicer says President Trump is likely to stick with his original plan.“I think we’re looking at a public-private partnership as a funding mechanism,” Spicer said in his briefing Thursday. “There’s a lot of work being done behind the scenes and I don’t want to put a timeline on that.”Despite the urgent call from the engineers, Spicer says for now, infrastructure will have to wait until after the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act and reform of the tax code.Copyright 2017 NPR.

The STD Testing Market has garnered interest of the healthcare industry due to high adoption of STD testing with increase in prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases in the developing nations. Growing incidence rates and increasing prevalence of STD, implementation of national screening programs across major geographies fuel the market growth.Growing prevalence of STD, implementation of national screening programs, and supporting reimbursement for STD testing have fueled the growth of the global sexually transmitted diseases testing market.

first_imgIf you would like to have your company featured in the Irish Tech News Business Showcase, get in contact with us at Simon@IrishTechNews.ie or on Twitter: @SimonCocking 5 Digital Marketing Strategies You Should Try in Healthcare Industry Image source:By Mary WaltonThe healthcare industry is constantly pursuing the next big technological advancement. Whether it’s a groundbreaking facility, an improved treatment, or the expansion of physician specialties, these organizations are doing their best to provide a greater level of care for patients.Unlike other industries, healthcare serves a large audience. Today’s customers are becoming more dependent on websites and apps.In fact, a large group of patients relies on websites to make healthcare decisions. Thus, it’s crucial to stay on top of the digital marketing game and keep your organization at the forefront of innovation—even online. Below are five digital marketing strategies that will help you reach patients and generate more leads in today’s patient-focused market.#1: An Easy-to-Navigate WebsiteThe website you have serves as the welcome mat to your healthcare company. Usually, it’s the first impression your organization will make. It plays a vital role in a patient’s decision to go with your facility or look somewhere else. Therefore, make sure the experience is as user-friendly as it can be.Odds are if someone’s on your site, they’re looking for answers for a loved one or themselves and want to find exactly the suggestions they are looking for quickly. So, make your site patient-focused (i.e., display your many offerings right on the homepage) so the visitors don’t have to search through the entire website.#2: Resourceful EmailsIt is true that patients go searching for various information online, but email is a great way to stay one step ahead. If the information is already in their inbox, they won’t have to look for it elsewhere. By sending out newsletters at least once a month, you will continue to educate your patients by providing them with valuable content like how to detox, best yoga practices, keto-diet tips, etc. These are things they can apply to their health and greatly benefit from.Capturing your patients’ interests is the key to providing your email database with a variety of useful information. You can use email segmentation and personalization based on user interests and preferences, so they are only receiving information relevant to their needs.Send out a current blog post, a video, or industry news that will provide readers with information on different topics. Also, make sure to plan all this ahead of time so that they’re timely according to whatever’s happening at your healthcare industry.#3: Strong SEO AttributesWhile you may have an attractive website with tons of blog posts and videos, they are of no use if they cannot be found via search engines. With the help of SEO optimization, you can boost the number of organic traffic by centering your articles on specific keywords that your patients would use in their search queries.If you are a hospital with multiple service lines, you may want to perform some in-depth keyword research with a tool like HubSpot Keyword or SEMrush to identify the best-ranking keywords. You just need to find keywords that are currently generating traffic to your site, as well as your competitors’.Once you find the keywords, build your content based on those specific keywords. In order to optimize a webpage around a particular line of service, you must include the keyword it in the page title, URL, meta description, H1, alt image tags, and throughout the entire content.Keywords are necessary, but make sure they sound natural within the rest of the content. Avoid keyword-stuffing, or else Google might penalize you if the keyphrase appears way too many times.#4: Videos that Educate and InspirePeople nowadays are leaning more toward visual content. Statistics show that about 1/3 of internet activity is spent watching videos. Consider getting your physicians on camera talking about their area of expertise. This way, it will help capture an audience that’s out there searching for knowledge your doctors have.Videos can make a patient feel as if they have already met the doctor and boost their comfort level by observing their mannerisms, expressions, and even hearing their voices. Video is a potent tool; the music, lighting, and story structure work together simultaneously to draw out emotion when presenting something in ways a blog post isn’t able to. These elements tend to evoke feelings of hope, passions, fear, courage, and many others that written words alone cannot capture.#5: Engaging Social Media StrategyIs your healthcare organization on social media? If not, you are missing a big opportunity to connect with your target audiences. Social media can be a robust promotional tool if used correctly.The majority of social media users are likely to trust posts and activity by verified physicians over any other group. Therefore, plan out your posts wisely. Make sure they’re written ahead of time. Also, offer a large variety of content and information on your page. A good social media presence will expand your reach to patients.Wrapping UpA solid healthcare digital marketing strategy is most actionable when managed in a streamlined way, where every element is in sync with another, instead of siloed.It’s important that you meet with your team regularly and share your marketing strategy to discuss updates or changes. Also, connect those elements via a content management platform so that you can track the performance of your efforts and determine areas for improvement.Mary Walton is a professional editor, content strategist and a part of NCSM team.

first_imgWales, U.K. – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifesstyle MagazineThe European golf team, notably comprising four Audemars Piguet ambassadors – Lee Westwood, Rory Mcllroy, Graeme McDowell and Miguel Ángel Jiménez – has won the 2010 Ryder Cup, thereby bringing back to Europe the prestigious trophy it lost on the other side of the Atlantic two years ago. Europe beat the American team by 14.5 points to 13.5.After Friday’s torrential rains and the poor Sunday morning conditions on the Celtic Manor course, the Ryder Cup organizers had to postpone the singles matches to Monday. Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell scored 2.5 points each, and Rory Mcllroy and Miguel Ángel Jiménez 2 points apiece.It was during the third session on Sunday that Team Europe gained the edge it was able to maintain right through to the final victory, by scoring 5.5 out of the maximum possible 6 points. Englishman Lee Westwood, partnered by Luke Donald, caused the sensation of the day by beating Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker 6&5. The Ryder Cup had not witnessed such a heavy loss in a foursome (two against two, one ball per team) in 15 years. Despite the six successive matches the American pair had won prior to this event, there was simply no stopping Westwood who displayed scintillating form that included a fabulous over 12-meter putt.In the other foursome, Northern Irishmen Graeme McDowell and Rory McIllroy saw off Zach Johnson and Hunter Mahan. Mcllroy’s decisive birdie at the 17th hole sparked thunderous applause, bringing Europe level at 6 to 6 after trailing the Americans at the close of the two first sessions.It was Graeme McDowell, winner of the last US Open and of the Wales Open held on the Celtic Manor course in early June, who clinched victory for the European delegation in the last of the 12 singles matches that were played on Monday. Despite the considerable pressure, McDowell appeared particularly relaxed during his contest against Hunter Mahan and kept a steady hand to score a birdie on the 16th hole and seal the win with a three-point lead at the 17th and penultimate hole (3&1).Audemars Piguet CEO Philippe Merk saluted the four golfers’ admirable performance in these terms: “Throughout the tournament, they showed considerable game skills, peerless expertise and a magnificent team spirit.”Brand ambassadors Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy and Miguel Ángel Jiménez, also have something else in common, since they are all particularly keen devotees of haute horlogerie and proudly wear Royal Oak and Royal Oak Offshore watches. These collections embody a perfect combination of elegance, excellence and strength, qualities that Audemars Piguet particularly appreciates in its ambassadors. Over the coming weeks and around the world, they will continue to represent the brand by wearing exceptional creations from Audemars Piguet.www.audemarspiguet.comlast_img read more

first_img Reforms to the state’s laws governing large animal breeding, led by state Rep. Thomas Albert, were recently signed into law. Albert, of Lowell, said the legislation promotes conservation while making the safety of zoo visitors and animals a top priority.“The old system was broken and prevented Michigan’s zoos from playing an important role in the conservation of some animal species,” Albert said. “Kent County’s John Ball Zoo had to send away two of our most treasured animals under this system, but with these new reforms all Michigan zoos will be able to access the necessary permits for their animal populations to thrive. I am pleased to see Michigan move forward with this solution.”Last year, the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids was forced to send its tigers to another state to take part in a breeding program, Albert said.Albert’s plan, now PA 610 of 2018, allows all Michigan zoos to breed large carnivores by applying for a breeding license if they meet specific criteria. Among the requirements, zoos wishing to breed large carnivores must follow responsible breeding practices, provide secure animal enclosures and habitats, establish emergency plans and possess highly trained staff.“These reforms hold Michigan’s Zoos to the highest standards that put visitor and animal safety first, while enabling animal conservation to continue in a state known for its natural resources,” Albert said.The measure also establishes a three-person board with the authority to grant a maximum of 10 breeding permits a year. The commission will consist of the state veterinarian, as well as one representative each of a public zoo and private zoo appointed by the governor. 02Jan Higher standards for large animal breeding signed into law Categories: Albert News,Newslast_img read more
