The advocates also assailed federal safety regulators for “rushing full speed ahead” to put self-driving cars on the road without adequate safeguards.  The optional drive-assist feature includes advanced adaptive cruise control and automated steering that allows the sedan to follow traffic and stay in its lane at speeds of up to 130 mph. Mercedes said late Thursday that it would take the ad out of rotation, saying it did “not want any potential confusion in the marketplace to detract from the giant step forward in vehicle safety the 2017 E class represents.” The Mercedes decision followed a letter to FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez from safety advocates who said the sedan did not meet the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s definiti...

Lebanon woman’s frustration over paper and plastic turns to inspiration, and a new business

That’s how a Lebanon woman explained what inspired her to launch a business selling self-made environmentally-friendly products that replace and outlast conventional paper and plastic bags, napkins, and towels, as well as wraps and covers, face pads, and heat/ice packs. Several years ago, Rebecca Maso began to seriously weigh the environmental ramifications of the material she used to carry snacks she fed to her own two children, as well as to their peers. “Whenever I took my kids out to the park or on play dates, I needed something to pack their snacks in,” Maso said. “And I never wanted any (other kids) to see my kids eating at the park and be like, ‘Mommy, I don’t have a snack.’ So I just made sure I had a ton, but I also had a ton of plastic I was bringing to the park with me.” Maso began to order custom- and mainsteam-printed fabrics from Etsy and, with her sewing machine, to create products made from 100% cotton that replaced the paper and plastic products used by her children. At the encouragement of her friends and family, in August of last year Maso decided to extended her customer base and to start selling the handmade items through her Facebook page and Etsy profile. ...

Many common cooking ingredients have uses beyond the kitchen. An excellent example of this is sodium

Many common cooking ingredients have uses beyond the kitchen. An excellent example of this is sodium bicarbonate aka baking soda. From its effectiveness as a mild abrasive to its deodorizing capabilities, the applications of baking soda seem endless. We scoured the internet and spoke to cleaning expert and author, Becky Rapinchuk aka “Clean Mama,” to put together a list of the many amazing uses for this chemical compound. “What’s fun about baking soda is that it does so much and is so cheap,” said Rapinchuk. “You can get a huge bag at Costco for a couple bucks.” Indeed, the power of baking soda is well documented. Read on for 21 amazing uses for it around the house. Baking soda works well as a mild abrasive, so it’s a useful sink cleaner. You can sprinkle baking soda all over your sink and then scrub it with a sponge. Rapinchuk said she likes to mix the baking soda with 20-30 drops of essential oil for scent and adds dish soap before she scrubs. “It’s a great way to freshen up and give you aromatherapy while you’re doing something that’s not really that fun,” she noted. Others mix it with lemon juice to form a paste or scrub the baking soda with a cut lemon. Once you’ve scrubbe...

Flexible packaging has seen tremendous growth globally, with an annual growth rate of 3.8 percent within

Flexible packaging has seen tremendous growth globally, with an annual growth rate of 3.8 percent within North America alone. It can be found in a vast array of shapes and sizes containing a wide range of products such as coffee, laundry detergent, baby food, cat litter, single-serve juices, motor oil, toothpaste and more. Packages can be made with a single layer, a mono-material laminate (i.e. multiple layers from the same polymer) or the more complicated, multi-material laminate (made from multiple layers from different polymers). Flexible packaging can also include papers and metals as key components, closures using zips, spouts or reseal adhesives, and various additives. While these packaging designs and formulations offer specialized benefits, recovery rates are low or non-existent. With the current global focus on the sustainability of plastics, end-of-life management of flexible packaging has become a priority. Landfill/disposal is the default end-of-life option, with some life cycle assessment studies even suggesting that flexible packaging, if disposed properly, is still a better environmental packaging choice compared to other more recyclable materials. Other options i...

Greg Glassman’s Easy Health Care Fix: More CrossFit

It’s a hot August morning in Madison, Wisconsin, and Greg Glassman is sipping iced tea in an air-conditioned, glass-walled room perched above a preternaturally green field. Below, two dozen ripped athletes are hanging by their feet from bars, performing upside-down sit-ups in sync while Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty” blasts from the speakers. The sun-warmed bleachers are a blur of taut and bulging skin, fans already drinking beer and getting rowdy above signs that declare this event the “Ultimate Proving Grounds for the Fittest on Earth.” It’s the 2019 CrossFit Games, the annual competition that brings together athletes from around the world to prove themselves worthy of this title. Here, the high-intensity workout regimen happening in nondescript gyms across the globe becomes a sport. And for the millions of CrossFit enthusiasts, it’s a big deal. Glassman, the 63-year-old founder of this fitness phenomenon, doesn’t seem to think it’s such a big deal. From the glass room, the CrossFitters—now pushing massive, weighted carts across the field in teams of four—are hard to see clearly, and the TV meant to broadcast the games isn’t working. Glassman is unperturbed. He has turned his back...
