Canadian inventor tests new prototype of Hoverboard


Duru flew up to 5 metres above a lake for a total distance of 275.9 metres while aboard his homemade, propeller-powered hoverboard in a trip that lasted more than 1½ minutes.

Now, Duru is working on a secret, next-generation version of the device. Watch as he takes CBC’s Reg Sherren into his workshop, where he is building it, and then to a Quebec lake where he puts the new prototype to the test for the first time. Canadian inventor tests new prototype of record-setting hoverboard.

The Craziest Stuff People Tried to Sneak Onto Airplanes This Year

  We may shake our heads at the TSA’s antics from time to time, but the men and women holding you up at airport security are actually dealing with some pretty scary prospects. Like loaded firearms. And grenades. And daggers. And for whatever reason, a hell of a lot of sword canes. Here are some of the craziest things people have tried to sneak past airport security in 2014.

Because the TSA details some of the more absurd confiscated contraband on its blog on a weekly basis, we get a first hand look into the boldest (and often dumbest) attempts at sneaking strictly forbidden items into airports. And after a whole year of swiping banned goods, it was quite a haul.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The controversy is growing over whether foods should be labeled if they contain GMOs — genetically modified organisms.

Consumer Reports tested more than 80 processed foods to see just how widespread GMOs are and whether you can trust food labels.
About 90 percent of corn produced in the United States is now genetically modified. The same is true with soybeans. Consumer Reports’ tests show GMOs can be in lots of foods, including some cereals, snack bars and soy-based infant formulas.
Since labeling is not required, you can’t tell by looking at the package, although some may say “No GMO,” “Non GMO” or “Non-GMO Project Verified.”
Consumer Reports tested a variety of products containing soy or corn for GMOs — at least 2 samples of each — each from a different lot.
“Unless they were labeled organic, the vast majority of products without a specific claimregarding GMOs actually did contain a substantial amount,” Dr. Michael Crupain said.
What about foods labeled “natural?”
A Consumer Reports’ survey of 1,000 people found that more than 60 percent believe “natural” means “no GMOs.”
That’s not what the tests found.
“There is no legal definition for the claim ‘natural’ on processed foods. Virtually all the samples we tested that said ‘natural,’ but didn’t make claims about being organic or non GMO in fact contained a high percentage of GMOs,” Dr. Crupain said.
Then, there are unverified claims like “Non GMO.” Though not independently certified, they mostly proved accurate in Consumer Reports’ tests.
The one exception was Xochitl corn chips, They’re labeled “no GMO,” but contained a high proportion of GMO corn in all six samples tested.
Its “Organic” white corn chips did meet Consumer Reports’ standards for non-GMO.
“Our findings confirmed that the most reliable labels for avoiding GMOs are ‘Non-GMO Project Verified,’ or organic, both independently certified,” Dr. Crupain said.
A spokesperson for Xochitl chips told Consumer Reports that the company and its supplier “are both baffled” by Consumer Reports’ test results.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The controversy is growing over whether foods should be labeled if they contain GMOs — genetically modified organisms.

Vermont recently passed legislation requiring GMO labeling and dozens of other states are considering similar actions.

In fact, labeling requirements are on the ballot in Oregon and Colorado this fall.

Consumer Reports tested more than 80 processed foods to see just how widespread GMOs are and whether you can trust food labels.

About 90 percent of corn produced in the United States is now genetically modified. The same is true with soybeans. Consumer Reports’ tests show GMOs can be in lots of foods, including some cereals, snack bars and soy-based infant formulas.

FREE Public Records and Background Checks

public records

FREE Background checks:

“So, can you tell me about that drug possession charge?” “Is there a reason you have so many traffic violations?” Even a few years ago, questions like these would have been shocking. Personal information was has always been available in public records, but it was far more difficult to access.

Now this fresh novel website BeenVerified has simplified the process of accessing public information, making it both easy and affordable for people to find out publicly available information about you. That might leave you wondering: what are public records; what kind of information do public records contain; who can access public records; and how does someone access public records?

People from all over the country can now have easy access to public record information thanks to BeenVerified. Just look at what one customer shared during her use of the site:

“Someone offered to drive my daughter home from soccer practice… so I looked them up on BeenVerified and you won’t believe what I found out.”

Many people mistakenly believe that public records only include government records. On the contrary, public records include any type of record that collects information about people and is available to the public. While they include any of the records that governmental bodies must maintain, they also include information collected for other purposes and by some private entities.

This confusion is understandable; each individual’s public record information is based upon that individual’s interaction with record-keeping organizations, whether governmental or private. Therefore, the details in your public record may be more or less extensive than the details in someone else’s record, depending on the extent of your interactions with record-keeping organizations.

Give BeenVerified a try and see what you find out. Just run a background check on someone you know, click here.

GM recalls top 30 million for 2014

Legal Reviews: GM Product Recalls

WHNT.com

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — If you own a General Motors vehicle, it’s worth the few seconds it takes to go on the company’s website to check if your car has been recalled.

GM announced additional recalls Saturday, bringing its 2014 count to about 30 million vehicles.

An ignition problem is at the heart of the latest recall.

On certain Pontiac G8 and Chevrolet Caprice models, the vehicles “may experience unintended key rotation from the ‘Run’ to ‘ACC’ position if the driver’s knee interacts with the ignition key,” according to GM.

GM is under fire after disclosing a fatal ignition switch flaw in February. CEO Mary Barra testified in front of Congress this spring to explain how the problem was overlooked for a decade.

The company has been reviewing all of its older vehicles for issues. CEO Mary Barra said last month the company is mostly done with that process.

Skip the sausage at Disneyland’s new Village Haus Restaurant

Hold the sausage
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA10616409_10152256421910308_8303510207995740879_nI was expecting a German-style sausage, but got instead what tasted to me like a very mild sweet Italian sausage instead. However German and Italian cuisine might blend, an Italian sausage on pretzel bread, topped with sauerkraut, doesn’t qualify.

Italian spices just don’t get along with pickled cabbage. Nor do they sit well with the doughy saltiness of pretzel bread. They need the lighter, crispier crust of a pizza instead. And let’s not talk about adding mustard to the mix, as I’d heartily recommend on a brat-like sausage.

The lesson? Always go with the special. At Disney’s counter-service restaurants, stick with the options presented in a fancy bordered box on the menu board. At the Village Haus, those three options are:

An Angus 1/3 lb. Pastrami Cheeseburger ($10.49)
A “BLT” Flatbread Pizza ($9.49)
An Apple & Cheddar Salad ($7.49)
I’d skipped those because I was looking for something that fit the theme of place a bit better. A pastrami burger is as LA as food gets. A BLT on a pizza is another American combo, to be sure. And I’m not a big fan of Cheddar, especially on a salad.
But Disney’s usually got those options in the boxes for a reason, and it’s not just to steer you toward the higher-prices selections. Those are the items that location focuses on, and presumably does best.

So I’m not ready to judge the Village Haus until a return and give one of those entrees a try. Until then, though, I can recommend that you skip the sausage.

The strudel, however, is well worth a taste. I felt a twinge of disappointment when the lady at the counter brought me my strudel, as I eyed the spectacular Black Forest cupcakes in a cooler behind her. Topped with billowing whipped cream and chocolate shavings, the cupcakes shamed my ordinary-looking strudel.

“The cupcakes are good,” another lady behind the counter said, noticing my expression. “But, honestly, the strudel tastes better.”

P1269738

That’ll do

I can’t speak of the cupcake, but the strudel lived up the billing, with sweet apple flavor and a vanilla dip that tasted like great vanilla-bean ice cream, reduced to a sauce.
