Volvo and POC team up to test bike helmets against cars for

first_img 2020 Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered first drive: Almost Super Trouper Preview • 2019 Volvo V60: The best kind of cookie cutter Comments 6:03 53 Photos Review • 2019 Volvo V60 review: A well-rounded all-rounder Volvo Enlarge ImageDropping a helmet onto a flat surface hardly mimics interactions between cyclists and motorists. This test is much more specific and, thus, will produce better data for both Volvo and POC. Volvo Volvo is no stranger to safety, being responsible for advancements like the three-point seatbelt, and its latest foray hopes to make the road safer for bicyclists rather than just motorists.On Monday, Volvo announced that it has teamed up with Swedish sports and safety company POC to run a series of world-first tests that pits bike helmets against vehicles. The idea is to research the interaction between the two and, potentially, create an even safer bike helmet that reduces the chance of injury in a collision.The tests will take place at Volvo’s safety research center in Gothenburg, Sweden. POC bike helmets will be affixed to crash test dummies, and they will be “launched” (Volvo’s term, not mine) at different parts of a Volvo’s hood, accounting for different speeds and angles. Volvo thinks there’s a lot to learn from these tests, which go above and beyond the usual bike helmet tests. According to the automaker, traditional helmet tests involve dropping a helmet from different heights onto flat or angled surfaces. The tests don’t account for cars specifically, yet as cities pile on dedicated bike lanes and make other accommodations just for cyclists, the need to study these interactions is as important as ever.”This project with POC is a good example of our pioneering spirit in safety,” said Malin Ekholm, head of the Volvo Cars Safety Center, in a statement. “We often develop new testing methods for challenging traffic scenarios. Our aim is not only to meet legal requirements or pass rating tests; instead, we go beyond ratings, using real traffic situations to develop technology that further improves safety.” 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country first drive: Small changes make a big impact Now playing: Watch this: More From Roadshow Tags Roadshow’s long-term 2019 Volvo XC40 after three months Volvo More about 2019 Volvo V60 Share your voice Volvo’s US manufacturing strategy is more human-centric… Car Industry Auto Tech 2019 Volvo S60 review: More competitive than everlast_img read more

An ordinary fare

first_imgBetween 1 to 2 pm only on Mondays madam, says the voice on the other end when I call up to confirm if walk-in is an option for outsiders in Rajasthan Bhawan’s canteen. Sensing my interest in the Rajasthani cuisine, he immediately adds that anybody could walk-in on any day of the week but the Rajasthani thali or platter is a once-a-week affair at the canteen. So, I waited for almost a week for that preordained lunch hour to gorge on the delicious Rajasthani platter here in the Capital. And when the day approached, monsoon, with all its splendour, had finally arrived in the Capital, casting a perfect setting for my lunch. I started out early to make it on time; well, I had only a bracketed hour-long time for the meal.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Walking inside the foyer of Rajasthan Bhawan, I glided down a step of stairs to find the canteen in a corner. A sizeable window in the canteen peeps into a hall with tables dressed in white linen and plastic covers set around wooden seats. Amongst the first few to arrive, I was delighted to make it on time. The attendant however informed me that I was early for lunch and food will be served by 1 pm. By and by, the hall started filling up with seemingly in-house guests and bureaucrats and it was half past 1 by the time the thalis made their first appearance. Indian Standard Time dutifully observed! Turning into a one man army, one attendant whizzed around the hall distributing thalis. By the time my moderately warm thali arrived, it was well past 1:30 pm.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixI scanned the thali and noticed the special daal-baati-churma alongside a dish of mix vegetable, gatta curry (gram flour dumplings in curry), rice and chapatis. Baati was bang on, crunchy and smoky in texture and the finely coarse churmawas mildly sweet. But what remained elusive was the conspicuous absence of ghee in the course. What stood out for me was the simple and tangy gatta curry.I have never imagined eating daal-baati-churma without ghee; it seems dry and takes down the entire experience by several notches. Well, the food came in late, the ghee never arrived, and there was nothing in the tapestry or up on the walls to hook onto.  Give this one a miss, without batting an eyelid.Meal for two : Rs 220 onwardslast_img read more

Eat right to keep acne away

first_imgHave acne trouble? A balanced diet along with a healthy lifestyle can help you curb it, say experts. Experts tell what all one should eat to keep acne at bay: -Brown rice: Brown rice is a rich source of vitamin B, protein, magnesium, and several antioxidants. For acne, vitamin B acts as our skin’s stress fighter, which will help regulate hormones levels and prevent the likelihood of breakouts. -Garlic: Garlic is another super food that helps fight inflammation. Garlic is full of a naturally occurring chemical called allicin, which kills off many harmful bacteria and viruses your body might be fighting, so its proven to be good for reducing inflammation in acnes. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf-Broccoli: It is the perfect skin clearing food. It contains health building properties like vitamins A, B complex, C, E, and K. These antioxidants fight radical damage which will assist with the luminosity of your skin. -Fish: Known to be a very good source of omega-3 and 6-fatty acids, fish is excellent for an acne prone skin. These acids reduce inflammation in the skin. Sardine and salmon are very good for skin. -Nuts: Deficiencies in minerals such as zinc and selenium have been linked to acne. Most nuts contain selenium, vitamin E, copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium and iron, which are all essential for healthy skin.

This licorice-tasting root vegetable can improve digestion, reduce swelling and help to flush out excess fluids and toxins in your skin. -Green tea: Many studies show that green tea helps fight acne. Drink more green tea throughout the day, and try applying cooled tea bags or a cloth dipped in cooled green tea to acne-prone areas of your face for 10-15 minutes. -Red grapes: The fruit and seed contain powerful natural chemicals and antioxidants that have been shown to treat inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. On top of this, grapes can also help to control the side effects of allergic reactions on skin. -Alfalfa sprouts: It looks like grass, but these sprouts are packed with valuable, skin-clearing nutrients. Alfalfa sprouts contain live enzymes which help fight inflammation. -Foods rich in vitamin A and carotenoids: Carotenoids are used in anti inflammatory drugs for treatment for acne. Rich sources of carotenoids include carrot juice, carrots, spinach, kale, cantaloupe, vegetable soup, mangos, papaya, instant fortified oatmeal, frozen peas and tomato juice. Fresh and canned peaches and red bell peppers provide modest amounts of carotenoid.last_img read more

Want to Get Into the App Business Try Buying One

first_img min read Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. May 11, 2012 Listen Nowcenter_img There are other online app markets, including SellMyApplication.com, but Apptopia is among the most developed conceptually and is particularly helpful in shepherding users through the sales process.The idea is to create a Web win-win. Developers can turn their code into cash and entrepreneurs can find ready-made online businesses that they can then turn around and sell again.There are a number of issues Apptopia aims to address. First, Kay and his co-founder, Apptopia CEO Eliran Sapir, noticed entrepreneurs spending money to build apps that already exist. Meanwhile, developers are constantly looking to unload their apps — even apps with lots of downloads. Not every developer is a born entrepreneur and many aren’t interested in the administrative end, including the time it takes to support a successful app.“If they could get four or five thousand dollars that’s awesome because it helps fuel the project they’re excited about now,” Kay says.To start bidding, users simply sign up with their email address. The rest will be familiar to anyone who has bought items on eBay. Users fill out a profile, browse listings of apps and then place bids on the ones they want to buy, starting with a minimum bid set by the seller. In some cases, apps can be bought outright for a set price.The average Apptopia purchase hovers around $7,500, but many apps are available for much less. Potential buyers don’t even need a login to navigate the site, which is searchable by category, downloads, bid price and monthly revenues. Shoppers can then view statistics about their potential purchases, which are updated daily.Related: Camera+: An Apps to Riches StoryThe data is easy to read, but interpreting the numbers is the real trick. Good apps might appear to perform poorly because they are relatively new or because they’ve been marketed poorly. Others might be legitimate fixer-uppers. Ultimately, buyers have to rely on their best business sense before taking out a flyer on an app.What to do with an app once it’s purchased is up to the new owner. Jean-Marie Truelle, a New York-based investor, uses Apptopia to buy apps for his own bootstrapped mobile publishing company, JMT Apps. The real magic to Apptopia, he says, is how it simplifies the crowded app marketplace.”Apptopia gives the opportunity to find valuable apps with comprehensive information at a fair price,” says Truelle.Making money on apps can be a tricky business, but Apptopia makes it at least theoretically possible for the smallest investors to get started. Savvy entrepreneurs can buy a niche app, figure out what needs to be improved and find a talented mobile developer to execute those changes, Kay says.“You’re buying an asset with some revenue stream. … It’s unlikely that you will lose your entire investment,” he says. Related: There’s an App Maker for That Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer In the crowded business of smartphone and tablet apps, the money might not be in building apps from scratch, but in flipping them.One way to get started is with Apptopia, a Cambridge, Mass.-based startup that enables developers, businesses and investors to buy and sell apps in online auctions. The site, which launched in April, provides everything from valuation to escrow services and intellectual property transfer.“Essentially what we’re trying to do is broker mobile app acquisitions in an eBay style,” says founder and COO Jonathan Kay.last_img read more
