West Coast utilities to figure out how to charge electric big rigs from Mexico to Canada

Thirty-three utilities from three West Coast states have launched a study to assess what it would take to install electric charging stations along the 5 Freeway for long-haul trucks traveling between the Mexican and Canadian borders, they announced Thursday. Although battery-powered medium- and heavy-duty trucks have barely begun on-road service in a few states, many manufacturers are testing additional prototypes that could expand their reach in one or two years, experts say.

Travel: These 3 new restaurants make Las Vegas a winner for the budget conscious

Name a top-end dining trend this century and odds are it has found its way to a Las Vegas casino, served in a frou-frou designed room with $$$$ menus. That’s all well and good for high-rolling foodies, but for the rest of us, a different and welcome wrinkle has arrived: Vegas is becoming a beachhead for outposts of regional eateries that have blown up nationally by selling high-quality comfort food at low-to-moderate price points. While Las Vegas has had high-end restaurants for years, it ha...

This Week In Trailers: The Society, Beats, Broken Bread, Echo in the Canyon, Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we shag some balls with Bill Murray, come of age across the pond, find inspiration in the heart of some prime real estate, connect w...

Boomplay, a Spotify-style music and video streaming service for African music and Africa, raises $20M

Nativo acquires content analytics company SimpleReach

Nativo has acquired SimpleReach, a move that Nativo CEO Justin Choi said will pair his company’s distribution system for native ads with SimpleReach’s measurement tools. “If you can’t measure the impact of something, it’s difficult to scale spend in that area,” Choi told me. “When we say measurement we’re actually talking about connecting content to outcomes.” To be clear, Nativo already offers measurement tools of its own, but apparently they’re limited to content that the brand or marketer ...

10 Shampoos Celebrity Colorists Actually Use On Their Clients

These days, dyeing your hair is as common as putting on lip balm or washing your face. In the last month, you've probably texted your colorist (yep, you have a colorist now) about going blonde like Priyanka Chopra, a copper-red like Katherine Langford, or even a chocolate-brunette like Emma Stone more than once. But changing up your color is a short-term goal with long-term effects. Not only does it change your mood, how you wear your makeup, and how you dress, but it also affects the kind of p...

Louise Parker's beautiful, healthy recipes that can help you ditch the diet

Have you ever wished you could press a reset button and lean towards a life of great habits and health? I believe anyone can reset their habits, no matter what their history, age or obstacles. As you may know, I loathe dieting and the ‘on-it/off-it’ mindset. It’s a vicious circle that keeps you in a whirlwind of setting intentions that are too hard, failing, sabotaging and repeating. Instead I’ve always spoken about eating beautifully: good, whole, delicious food. Your food should seduce your se...

New Samsung Notebook 9 Pen Offers Affordable Business Option

Samsung has just announced two new versions of its Notebook 9 Pen 2-in-1 PC with a built-in S Pen will be available in 2019. The revamped versions come shortly after the 2018 release, which didn’t have the traction Samsung was hoping for. The choice of material was primarily responsible for the negative press, but the hefty $1,400 price tag and less than desirable battery life didn’t help either. For small businesses looking for an affordable 2-in-1 device in 2018, the Notebook 9 Pen didn’t tic...
