Universal Opens Latest Theme Park Ride With Movie Tie-In

June 26, 2015 - Author: steph

Universal Studios is definitely holding its own against other studios at the box office this year. First was the release of “Furious 7,” the latest movie in the franchise that started with “Fast & Furious,” which did very well at the box office. Then, of course, was “Jurassic World,” which Manta.com says not only beat all others this year so far but took all-time box office records for an opening weekend and speed at which it headed toward a billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales. Universal has another revenue stream up their sleeve that serves to complement and tie in with their successful movies and that is their theme parks. They have four of them around the world, and they are quite successful in their own right.

Their latest Theme Park movie tie-in expansion is the addition of a Fast & Furious – Supercharged ride at their Hollywood theme park location. The ride is supposed to take passengers into the world of underground street racing in a way far more thrilling than just watching it on a movie screen. Between their Hollywood and Florida locations, they already offer rides, shows and attractions that tie in with “E.T.: The Extraterrestrial,” “Men in Black,” “The Simpsons,” “Terminator 2,” “Harry Potter,” and many more. Universal studios has invested in continuing people’s movie going adventures at their theme parks, and it seems to be paying off for them.

We All Will Need Care

June 22, 2015 - Author: steph

It seems like everyone either is a healthcare provider, or they are in need of healthcare. In the United States there is a growing need for healthcare providers. These are people that help the aging and disabled to lead dignified lives. Being a caregiver is a very arduous task. This is a person that helps those people in need to carryout common everyday things that the majority of us take for granted. These caregivers may help people to get to doctors appointment, use the bathroom, wash, clean and cook their meals. In the United States alone there are many people who are aging and it has been stated that by the year 2020 one and six people will be over the age of 65.

When it comes to aging it is something that is going to happen to everyone unless they suffer from an untimely death says Jaime Garcia Dias. Since that is the case, our country does well to look at the our views on aging. The issue with aging is not that a person is getting older, but the view that others have of them. In our culture we see people that are old and aging as useless and in need of aid. In many other cultures around the world people show elderly respect, dignity, and love. Because of that many people in those countries do not have a morbid fear of aging. In the United States many people are terrified of getting older, because in their minds it is a synonym of being worthless. In this country we should do more to give our aging parents and relatives more dignity since we are all getting older.

For individuals who are looking to boost their morning routine and get a bit more out of the average cup of joe, they might want to check out Bulletproof coffee. This coffee is one of the newer options on the market today as it came to fruition in 2009 and has been going strong ever since. The Bulletproof coffee company itself is marketed as an “upgraded” form of black coffee. This is because it is blended with a grass fed butter and something known as brain octane. The combination of these different elements are designed to improve brain functionality and the ability to concentrate on certain tasks throughout the day.

The recipe has been created by Dave Asprey, who is the owner and founder of bulletproof coffee. The “Brain Octane” oil, as he calls it, is an eight-carny fraction of a medium0chain triglyceride. The combination of this can prove helpful to the health of the individual, as long as the individual does not combine the black coffee with a large amount of sugar.

The coffee has been listed as one of the major up and coming companies in the United States and Bulletproof Coffee has even been featured on several different top talk shows such as The Tonight Show and the Today Show. It is a smaller company with around 20 employees, but the website, from which it does most of its sales, sees over six million unique visitors. On top of this, Bulletproof Coffee also maintains a cafe in Los Angeles, which is where it is based out of.

By 2014, the company boasted over three million consumers of the product as it has grown throughout the world. This is based on the desirable health effects that can come about from drinking Bulletproof coffee. The recipe itself is rather straight forward and includes one to two tablespoons of the grass fed, unsalted butter (also known as ghee), and one to two tablespoons of the Brain Octane. The drink is then blended until it becomes frothy.

Asprey has come out to state that individuals who drink bulletproof coffee have shown the ability to boost their IQ score by over 20 points and that it is also able to help with weight loss through what is known as ketosis. Several doctors have come out to say that drinking a cup of Bulletproof coffee can give a bit more energy and results than the standard cup of coffee and BusinessWeek confirms it’s true.

Homeland Security Is Trying To Find Out Who Leaked The Story On Airport Security Test Failures

June 12, 2015 - Author: steph

Homeland Security Clams The Airport Security Tests Were Classified

The inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security is not happy about the security leak that told the world security at airport checkpoints was not that secure. Homeland Security conducted a test at airports around the country, and they discovered that TSA agents allowed weapons and fake explosives through security checkpoints 95 percent of the time. That’s an alarming statistic, but the other alarming fact is Homeland Security’s internal security needs to be examined.

The last thing Homeland Security wanted or needed was another story about their security procedures as thestreet.com has reported in the past. The department has been under scrutiny for not having safeguards in place to protect terrorist’s attacks at key locations around the country. The chairman of the Homeland Security Committee said there are serious issues that need to be addressed within the organization. Employees leaking information is just one of them.

The TSA chief was removed following the security report, but the leaker is still working for Homeland Security. Finding the leaker should be an easy job for the department. They are a security organization, right?

J. Crew Replaces Lead Designer Following Staff Cutbacks

June 11, 2015 - Author: steph

Recently, a total of 175 employees of the fashion brand J. Crew were laid off, most of them from the brand’s New York headquarters. The company has been struggling financially during the first three months of 2015 and has reported a 5% drop in profits compared to the same time last year.

In addition to the massive layoffs, the brand has also replaced its lead designers amid an apparent laundry list of other ‘strategic and organizational changes’ set to take place within the company reports CipherCloud. CEO Mickey Drexler has announced the brand intends to revamp their aesthetic along with the opening of several new stores. Though the company has not elaborated on what exactly these changes may be, they will apparently affect areas of ‘store operations, production, sourcing, and merchandising’.

J. Crew has also announced the opening of several new stores including Madewell, which is an imprint of the parent company targeted toward female shoppers. Profits from Madewell have one of the few bits of positive news for J. Crew in the past several months with the imprint accounting for 11% of the company’s profit.

The previous lead designer, Tom Mora, will be replaced by Somsack Sikhounmuong as lead designer for J. Crew. Joyce Lee, who has worked with both Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs in the past, will take over as head of Madewell. One hopes that this update to the J. Crew brand will prove to be beneficial not only for the company, but a boon for the fashion industry as a whole as well.

Why Sunless Tanning is Making a Comeback

June 10, 2015 - Author: steph

You probably know all about the orange tan that you might have dealt with as a teenager. You might also be familiar with people who you’ve passed on the street or in a store that had an orange-looking tan that didn’t at all look natural. While the orange tan is definitely something to avoid, sunless tanning is making a huge comeback nowadays. The whole idea of baking in the sun may seem fine to some people, but the effects of skin damage both during the tanning process and years down the road has some people scared out of their wits. Many people who were once devoted to sunbathing outside with their baby oil and tin foil folders are now paying for it with lines, wrinkles and even skin cancer.

This is the main reason sunless tanning is coming back and is becoming a hot new ticket item for both women and men around the world stated Handy. What’s even better is that sunless tanning products are becoming a whole lot more advanced and most of them will not give you that orange glow that you dread. Most sunless tanning products will make you look like you’ve been out in the sun and have gotten that rich color that you’ve always wanted for yourself. If you feel that sunless tanning might be the best option for you, it’s important to think about buying a good quality product instead of going for something cheap.
