Trump administration’s finalized, more sensible CAFE standards

The Trump Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation have just released the final version of their new Corporate Average Fuel Economy standard. Its goal of increasing fuel economy 1.5 percent per year, aiming for 40 miles per gallon by 2026, hardly seems an environmental catastrophe. But because that is less restrictive than the 2012 Obama administration standard, mandating 5 percent annual improvements and a goal of 54.5 mpg in 2025, it is being characterizing as backslidi...

Nordic Nation: Ollie Burruss and Shades of Green at Craftsbury

2020 Hyundai Venue Review: How Does This City Slicker Stack Up?

2020 Hyundai Venue In Our Opinion: The 2020 Hyundai Venue is an affordable SUV that's easy to maneuver and drive in the city. Extra packages provide nice amenities, like navigation, heated seats, and a sunroof. We don't care for the exterior styling, but can overlook that given the Venue's other strong attributes. Exterior Styling 68 Interior Layout 90 Driving Dynamics 85 Safety & Tech Features 75 Everyday Functionality 91 Pros Affordab...

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Review: How Does This Plug-In Hybrid Stack Up?

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV In Our Opinion: There will be some trade-offs with the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. For example, to account for the hybrid powertrain, the Outlander PHEV ditches the third row and spare tire. The increase in fuel economy drops the fun factor behind the wheel, as this variant isn't very engaging or energetic. However, the different drive modes will maximize charging and range in nearly every situation. And as a bonus, all-wheel drive is there for good mea...

The Emperor's Clothing Looks Deplorable

It's fair to say this pandemic is revealing the emperor's true clothing. Yours and mine. Just this very week, I saw a quote from someone who said, "We don't like Trump, but we like his policies." Trump does represent the policy of the Republican party, which obviously a large percentage of voters chose in the last election. So, now we all get to experience Trump's policies when the tire meets the road in pandemicland. For those who were comfortable and voted for Trump because they wanted to shak...

Tampons - Do You Know the Dangers?Guest Post By Alicia P SmithWe all know tampons can lead to toxic shock syndrome (TSS) but who knew they may lead to infertility? I said, "may," because there have not been any independent studies done. I have always wondered how safe tampons really are and curious if tampons can effect a woman's fertility. For five years I suffered through infertility and I have since been looking for all possible reasons on why I suffered so long and why I developed end...

I drove a $141,000 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, the newest version of the iconic sports car. It was without question the best Porsche I've ever experienced.

I drove a 2020 $140,830 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S — the latest version of the world's greatest sports car, now identified as the 992. My test car had a twin-turbo boxer six engine, making 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. It was very, very fast — 0-60 mph in the realm of three seconds (Porsche says 3.2 seconds, to be exact). But the 4S is also a dream to drive hard, thanks to its impeccable all-wheel-drive system.

Under coronavirus shutdown, L.A. County restaurants can now sell groceries — but here are the rules

Restaurants have been reinventing themselves as food markets, looking for ways to survive the economic toll ravaged by coronavirus-spurred shutdowns. But the reinventions caught the eyes of public health inspectors, who were shutting some eatery-turned-grocers down. Under “Stay at Home” orders and social distancing rules, restaurants could only serve take-out food. Related links Can LA County restaurants ‘reinvent’ themselves as markets amid coronavirus?

Toyota Camry & Avalon AWD: Nice Option But Do You Need It?

Toyota Camry and Avalon now have all-wheel drive as a standalone option.Different components from the RAV4 and Highlander were used for the sedans.Although a nice option, all-wheel drive may not be necessary for some buyers. Toyota’s research team in Saline, Michigan came back from the drawing board with an all-wheel drive option for the 2020 Camry and 2021 Avalon.

How to clean and disinfect your home during the coronavirus pandemic

It’s easy to forget about the new normal for a moment as you go about your day: You return from a quick trip to the grocery store and drop your reusable bags on the kitchen countertop, or your dog’s leash goes from resting on a bench at the park to resting on your dining table or the back of a chair.       Yep, you can bring germs into your home, no matter how much social distance you are maintaining during the novel coronavirus outbreak. And while you are hyper-aware that you need to wash yo...

RFA slams EPA and DOT for ignoring ethanol in vehicle fuel economy and emissions standards

In Washington, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation issued final regulations for 2021-2026 vehicle fuel economy and emissions standards. According to the Renewable Fuels Association, the final rule ignores the input of automakers, ethanol producers, farmers, environmental groups, retailers and others who called on the agencies to establish a pathway in the rule for transitioning to high-octane low carbon liquid fuels. In response to hundreds of comments call...

A cost-analysis of going back to work vs. California’s stay-at-home policy

First with a tweet, then a news conference and interviews, President Donald Trump showed that he is considering trading American lives in the coronavirus pandemic for a healthier economy:  “We can’t have the cure be worse than the problem.” The pushback to Trump’s statements was swift, with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo saying that if the public must choose between public health and the economy, Americans will choose the former.  Others, including Trump economic advisor Larry Kudlow rushed to Trump...

There’s no need to stockpile water during coronavirus pandemic

During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, worried consumers have been snapping up bottled water as soon as it hits grocery store shelves. As leaders at the Water Replenishment District, the public agency that provides 50 percent of the tap water used by four million residents in 43 cities of LA County, we understand the public’s concern. In times of crisis, fearful people stockpile water. But the public’s fears are largely unwarranted. Consumers don’t need to stand in line to buy expensive bottled wat...

Coronavirus in Crowded Spaces: How Apartments and Communities Could Help Lessen Spread

As the coronavirus crisis develops and its scope widens, community concerns have sprung up, especially in residential spaces. Because of the “cluster” nature of the virus, communities must not only protect residents, but also limit public spread, both on the part of the property—whether an association or board, developer or owner—and residents and tenants. Any community is susceptible, from apartments to communities for retirees, and areas with dense high-rises, like New York City. Addressing cl...

Higher serum EPA levels from prescription fish oil associated with lower cardiovascular events

Higher levels of the omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in the blood—and not a decrease in triglyceride levels as originally thought—appear to explain the striking reductions in cardiovascular events and deaths seen among people taking 4 grams daily of the prescription fish oil, icosapent ethyl, according to findings from a REDUCE-IT substudy presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session Together with World Congress of Cardiology
