Tesla owner, Las Vegas investor and entrepreneur Ryan Negri learned that the hard way as he got stranded with his Tesla six miles from home near Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Negri used the Tesla mobile app to start the car at home, and didn’t bring his keys; but when he had to stop and restart the car to adjust a dog seat, there was no cell service, so the start-with-phone method was useless.
While taking your car keys when you go for a drive seems like quite an obvious precaution measure, the technology that makes our lives easier can sometimes make us forget the simplest of things. Sure, it’s nice to be able to unlock and start your Tesla with a phone, but car keys are still a very valid addition to your pocket necessities.
Jack Daniel’s has become inextricably linked to things we do when we wake up in the morning.
According to a press release announcing the product, the coffee is made of “premium 100 percent Arabica coffee, roasted medium and infused with Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey.”
If you’re looking for a way to make the morning even easier, it might disappoint. While the coffee has been infused with whiskey, the drink is non-alcoholic.
Now there may be an actual reason why Jack Daniel’s would make an appearance in your daily morning routine. The distillery, in partnership with the World of Coffee, has released Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Coffee.
The Lake Tahoe area on the California-Nevada border has been dumped with snow — perfect for the middle of prime skiing and snowboarding season.
But the storm affecting the western U.S. this week is just too much. And the Tahoe resorts just can’t take it. It’s beyond dumping (which is painfully ironic after barely any snow in past years) with another half-foot to a foot more of snow expected in the Sierra Nevada Mountains by Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
Almost all of the resorts were closed Wednesday and some had shut down earlier this week because of the storm. At Kirkwood Mountain Resort, operators decided after 9 feet of snow in the past few days they needed time to dig out and keep the mountain safe. In a post Wednesday afternoon they wrote “This has been a #storm for the books,” next to a photo showing one of their lifts almost buried.
Squaw Valley, famous for hosting the 1960 Olympics, said they were out of commission because of a storm-related power outage. The outage was affecting a few other resorts, as well.
At the Sierra-at-Tahoe resort they posted about Wednesday’s closure after more than 3 feet of snow fell in 24 hours. “The conditions that Mother Nature is giving us make it extremely difficult to operate the mountain safely,” they wrote Tuesday afternoon. They added, “Extreme snowfall, low visibility, high winds, and avalanche danger exist all over the mountain.”
That’s the message nearly all the resorts are posting online to eager skiers and snowboarders. The only resort that was operating some lifts seemed to be Heavenly on the Nevada side of the resort. Others posted about expected openings on Thursday.
White, a Trump supporter, responded telling TMZ, “Of course it’s an art. These fighters, these men and women are so talented…saying something stupid like that is like saying…she’s not a talented actress which she is.”
He added, “We have fighters from all over the world…She’s not educated about the sport and that was a completely uneducated comment.”
Polaris Industries is shutting down the Victory brand after 18 years and is putting all its motorcycle chips behind the Indian brand.
“This was an incredibly difficult decision for me, my team and the Polaris Board of Directors,” said Polaris Industries Chairman and CEO Scott Wine in a news release announcing the change. “Over the past 18 years, we have invested not only resources, but our hearts and souls, into forging the Victory Motorcycles brand, and we are exceptionally proud of what our team has accomplished.”
The news release stated that the company sees greater potential and strength with the Indian brand it acquired. “This decision will improve the profitability of Polaris and our global motorcycle business, and will materially improve our competitive stance in the industry,” said Wine.
Polaris said the company will help dealers liquidate existing inventory and will provide parts support for 10 years.
ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WXYZ) – Did you know you could get fined for heating up your car? One man’s parking ticket has gone viral, with thousands of views after he was ticketed for heating up his car in his own driveway.
Taylor Trupiano says he’s still shaking his head over a parking ticket he got on his own property.
“I thought it was some kind of joke at first, and then I was thrown back by it,” he said. “I was really surprised.”
The ticket was for leaving the keys in the ignition with the motor running and no one around. Trupiano said he was only doing something many people in Michigan do during the winter.
“I was in and out in probably about 7-8 minutes,” he added. “So in that amount of time he ran up here, gave me a ticket and by the time I got out he was nowhere to be seen.”
