Barrett-Jackson to Sell Four Charity Vehicles Benefiting Veterans at the 3rd Annual Hot August Nights Auction

RENO, Nev.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions®, is continuing its support of charities benefiting United States veterans and their families with the auction of four vehicles during the 3rd Annual Hot August Nights Auction in Reno Tahoe, Nevada, August 6-8, 2015. Barrett-Jackson has raised nearly $84 million over the years for numerous charities and will continue at Hot August Nights with its support of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Ride 2 Recovery, The Foundation for Exceptional Warriors and the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.

“It’s in our long tradition to team up with organizations seeking to make a difference in the lives of the servicemen and servicewomen of this country and their families,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We’re honored to take part in giving back to the courageous and selfless individuals that make our country so great.”

Craftsman, an official content partner of Barrett-Jackson, is donating a 1965 Comet Caliente (Lot #3001) to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, providing financial assistance to severely wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel as well as to the families of personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty. This ’65 Comet Caliente was custom modified and restored for performance racing. Performance features include a Roush 427-R engine with an EFI stack injector and a T-56 6-speed transmission.

Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson, is re-donating a 2014 Victory Cross Country 8-Ball Motorcycle (Lot #3002) to benefit Ride 2 Recovery, the same beneficiary when Davis purchased the motorcycle in January at the 44th Annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction. Ride 2 Recovery supports Spinning® Recovery Labs and outdoor cycling programs at military and veterans affairs locations around the country to help injured veterans overcome obstacles. The motorcycle is painted to resemble the United States flag and is powered by the legendary Victory fuel-injected 106ci V-Twin engine with a 6-speed overdrive transmission.

“It is with great honor that we have the opportunity to support the organizations dedicated to serving the men and women of our country that have given so much,” said Davis. “In addition to Ride 2 Recovery, all of these organizations are doing incredible things for incredible people and we at Barrett-Jackson are proud to be a part of it.”

Bennington is once again donating one of its boats to benefit The Foundation for Exceptional Warriors. This pontoon boat is a 2014 Bennington Mahogany Luxury Boat (Lot #3003) and is top of its class in luxury boating. It is equipped with an 8.2 MAG engine, thru-hull exhaust, a sporty tower and an impressive sound system. Proceeds from the auction of this vehicle will assist in the healing process of the families and veterans of Special Operations Forces, those recognized for valorous action and those wounded in combat, regardless of era, by providing customized therapeutic recreational and sporting events to enhance their mental and physical health.

Also crossing the block to benefit charity will be a 1957 Willys Jeep Wagon (Lot #3000), embodying all the charm of one of the first production SUVs. This vintage beauty will benefit the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation based in Truckee, California. The money raised from this auction will go towards the “Marines to the Mountains” program dedicated to bringing Marines injured in service to Squaw Valley for a once-in-a-lifetime skiing experience.

In addition to the four charity auctions benefitting veterans and their families, a 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ-40 (Lot #3000.1) is being auctioned in support of Transforming Youth Recovery. Created in 2013 by the Stacie Mathewson Foundation in Reno, Transforming Youth Recovery supports educators, parents and community members in helping students recovering from addiction thrive in the fullness of everyday life. This Land Cruiser features a straight-6 engine, 4-speed manual transmission, factory winch and tow package, rear side seats and 4-wheel drive.

Bemutatkozik a Yahoo Livetext – a kapcsolattartás új módja

SUNNYVALE, Kalifornia állam, USA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) ma bejelentette, hogy új alkalmazás, a Yahoo Livetext áll ügyfelei rendelkezésére, amelynek segítségével az iPhone és Android telefonok tulajdonosai videóval kísért szöveges üzeneteket válthatnak egymással. A Yahoo Livetext egyesíti az egyszerű és kényelmes szövegesüzenet-küldést és az élÅ‘ videókapcsolat kínálta közvetlen és életteli kommunikációt – mindezt azonban hang nélkül, s így bárhol, bármilyen környezetben szabadon használható.

“A platformváltások mindig újfajta kommunikációs módok megjelenésével járnak, mivel a fejlesztÅ‘k folyamatosan igyekszenek mindjobban megfelelni a fogyasztók részérÅ‘l az egyre sokrétűbb és közvetlenebb kapcsolattartás és interakció iránt megnyilvánuló igényeknek” – fejtette ki Adam Cahan, a Video, Design, and Emerging Products részleg elnökhelyettese. “A célunk az volt, hogy egy újfajta kommunikációs módot hozzunk létre, amely az egyszerű szövegesüzenet-küldéssel egy idÅ‘ben, az élÅ‘ videókapcsolat révén közvetíti a felek érzelmeit és reakcióit, és így spontán, valós idejű kommunikációt tesz lehetÅ‘vé.”

A Yahoo Livetext a kapcsolattartás új módja – nem zavar másokat, gyors és valós idejű – és hasonlóan a valódi, személyes beszélgetésekhez, sok apró, mindössze néhány pillanatig tartó, megismételhetetlen elembÅ‘l tevÅ‘dik össze. A közvetlen kapcsolat, a felek közti interakció, kezdve egy fülig érÅ‘ mosolytól a szemforgatással kísért sóhajtásig azt jelenti, hogy nincs szükség többé a szöveges üzeneteknél megszokott hangulatjelekre vagy az olyan szavakra, mint például a ‘Lol’, hiszen a beszélgetés során láthatjuk beszélgetÅ‘partnerünk reakcióit.

Cégünk már megkezdte a Yahoo Livetext nemzetközi bevezetését, amely elsőként Hongkongban, Taiwanon és Írországban jelent meg. Július 30-tól a Yahoo Livetext már újabb öt országban (USA, Egyesült Királyság, Kanada, Németország és Franciaország) lesz beszerezhető az App Store-ban és a Google Play Store-ban.

Massive Metal Stamping Capacity Increase Headed for US Gulf Coast

Ice Industries’ Latest Investment to Benefit Auto, Appliance, Truck, Trailer, Alternative Energy, and Other Manufacturers

SYLVANIA, OH–(Marketwired – Jul 31, 2015) – Ice Industries, Inc. is again expanding in the Gulf Coast region, with a greenfield project marking its fifth major investment in Mississippi since entering the state in 2005. This project will be centered on the installation of twin 3,000 ton metal stamping presses, and will also include a number of ancillary processes.

“After the last major automotive downturn, a great deal of capacity was taken out of the stamping market; and, while the automotive industry in particular has seen a strong rebound, most North American suppliers have been reluctant to add back any significant capacity. As an entrepreneurial company, and as a trusted supplier to many industries over the last 16 years, Ice Industries continues making those investments so our customers don’t have to,” said Howard Ice, Ice Industries Founder, Chairman, and CEO.

“Ice has a unique opportunity to place, not one, but two identical large-scale presses in the south,” observed Paul Bishop, Ice Industries’ President. “This project provides in place redundancy for a secure supply chain on some very unique assets. Over the years, we have strived to not just keep pace with our customers’ demands, but to always be a step ahead. This latest facility is yet more evidence of that philosophy.”

The keystones of the new site will be the twin Komatsu metal stamping presses. They will be functionally identical, with:

  • Bed Sizes of 528 inches by 72 inches;
  • Stroke Heights of 24 inches;
  • Shut Heights of 48 inches;
  • 14-Station Atlas Servo transfer systems; and,
  • Can be coil or blank fed.

“When this expansion is complete, Ice industries will be one of the largest and most capable stamping operations in the Southeast,” reiterated Howard Ice.

The new facility is slated to start production in the Second Quarter of 2016, and the Ice Industries’ sales team is currently working with manufacturers seeking to reserve a share of its new, unique capacity. If you are interested in learning more about the project, you would like to receive regular updates, and/or obtain technical details; please contact the Ice Industries team at http://www.iceindustries.com/manufacturing/contact-us/sales or by calling 419-842-3600.
