Stop Wasting, Start Saving: Adopt Stop/Start Technology

SOURCE: General Motors

DESCRIPTION:

This summer, Chevrolet will unveil the 2015 Impala, which, like the Chevrolet Malibu, will feature a base engine with standard stop/start technology – a combatant of fuel and money wasting.

Nobody likes the fact that vehicles consume fuel when they are stopped at a red light or sit in traffic.  Stop/start systems address this problem by automatically turning off the engine during these routine stops.

Although the improved fuel economy is an obvious benefit, the total amount of time, fuel and money wasted because of idling may not be as well known.

Did you know? – According to Sustainable America, the average American driver spends 16 minutes each day idling in their vehicles. That equates to four entire days per year idling at a standstill.

AND - According to a study by The Hinkle Charitable Foundation, Americans spend 3.8 million gallons of fuel each day when idling in their vehicles.

SO - By not idling, consumers reduce fuel consumption and waste, and also save real money. To calculate how much you can save over the course of a year by not idling your vehicle, visit www.ITurnitoff.com.

THE GOOD NEWS IS – Chevrolet’s stop/start technology has the ability to address some of the consequences of vehicle idling.

Ninety-seven percent of new Malibu owners have opted for cars equipped with stop/start technology, totaling about 83,000 vehicles, the most aggressive rollout of the technology in the U.S. by an American automaker.

This trend is in line with a recent report from Navigant Research, which predicted worldwide sales of vehicles with stop/start technology to grow from 8.8 million in 2013 to 55.4 million in 2022.

Conflict Minerals: What the SEC Filings Show

SOURCE: Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG)

DESCRIPTION:

Unless you are one of the few readers of this blog who are blissfully unaware of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) conflict minerals rule, you probably also know that the first-year filing deadline was June 2. The rule, which requires SEC-filing companies that manufacture or contract to manufacture products to investigate whether those products contain tin, tungsten, tantalum, or gold and, if so, to submit a special form to the SEC, has been the subject of numerous articles and analyses, not to mention lawsuits and high drama. Now that close to 1,300 forms have been filed and made available on the SEC’s EDGAR website, it is a good time to take a look at what the filings reveal and what lessons can be learned from this first phase of conflict minerals compliance.

Changing Women's Lives through Fistula Repair Surgery

SOURCE: Baxter International Inc.

DESCRIPTION:

In developing areas of the world with little access to healthcare, complications during childbirth can have lasting effects. For many women, obstructed or prolonged labor can lead not only to the tragic loss of a child, but also to health complications such as obstetric fistula.

Those living with fistula—a hole in the birth canal that causes constant leaking of urine and/or feces—often encounter severe stigma and isolation. Although the condition is largely treatable, women in some locations lack access to healthcare services and corrective surgery.

Direct Relief, one of Baxter’s humanitarian aid partners, has been a leader in addressing this issue. The organization has extensively mapped the level of fistula care services available to women in Africa and Asia, and helps women suffering from fistula not only improve their health, but also integrate back into society. Baxter pre-positions products each year for critical medical needs and disaster relief efforts through Direct Relief and other partners such as AmeriCares. Through product donations from companies such as Baxter, Direct Relief makes it possible for fistula care facilities throughout Africa and Asia to perform life-changing procedures.

At Bwaila Fistula Care Center in Lilongwe, Malawi, Dr. Jeff Wilkinson performs fistula repair surgery for four to seven women a day, two to three days a week for part of the year. He also works on maternal health projects in the area with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. With the support of financial assistance from the Freedom from Fistula Foundation and product donations through Direct Relief, the Bwaila Fistula Care Center was able to see 275 fistula patients and perform 220 surgeries last year.

“There are very few options for care in the central region of Malawi, as only a handful of clinicians can do fistula surgery at a basic level,” says Dr. Wilkinson. “The surgery is transformational. The women go from ashamed, isolated, constantly wet and malodorous to resuming a normal life.”

Such was the case for one 28-year-old woman, Sarah*, who had surgery at Bwaila Fistula Care Center to repair a fistula she suffered from for ten years after losing her child during obstructed labor.

“I heard about the fistula center from a neighbor who had been a patient there,” she shared with the help of a translator. “I can now return home without fear of being wet all the time. I can go to church, and go back to the market to sell vegetables from my garden.”

In addition to the health benefits gained from the fistula repair procedure, women at the center also receive resources to help them transition back to life in their communities.

“We have social reintegration, financial literacy and other education programs for the patients to help them re-engage,” says Dr. Wilkinson.

The programs have helped Sarah readjust back to life in her community while working toward building a bright future for herself.

“They taught me about how to manage money and how to speak a little English. I’m hoping to come back and learn some more at the center and also one day maybe to go back to school,” she says.

Inspiring Beauty Through Caring: Bald is Beautiful

SOURCE: Mary Kay

DESCRIPTION:

Today’s guest blogger, Cassandra Yates, sets a new standard for fundraising and empathy. She debuted as a Mary Kay Independent Sales Director on May 1 and shaved her head in honor of cancer patients 11 days later.

Since I was a little girl, I wanted to help others. I’ve been raising money for worthy causes for as long as I can remember.

My Inspiration
My Independent Senior National Sales Director Lisa Madson has always been an amazing example of giving back to The Mary Kay FoundationSM. I wanted to follow in her foot steps. I just knew our Future Vavrina National area could make a difference helping The Mary Kay Ash FoundationSM!

So when the Team Up for Women® came along, I was really moved to do something bigger than I’d ever done before. We wanted to raise $7,000 for The Mary Kay FoundationSM. That was a huge goal for us. To give them some incentive, I told them I would shave my head.

All along, I knew I was going to shave my head even if we didn’t meet the goal. We gave it our best shot and raised $3,000.

So why did I shave my head anyway?

I knew I could help people. I donated 14 inches of my hair to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients.

And I wanted people to know two things.

Bald is beautiful.

Beauty starts from the inside.

We planned the big party for May 12, Mary Kay Ash’s birthday.

Double the Fun
That day, I wasn’t the only one who shaved my head. Please help me give a huge applause to Grace, the 12-year-old daughter of an Independent Beauty Consultant in our national area. She said I inspired her, and she wanted to shave her head to bring awareness to cancer so people wouldn’t have to suffer anymore.

Grace raised $150 on her own for the cause!

I’d like to give a shout out to our head shavers too! Karen Jensen and Brigitte Birong made the process a little more fun!

I never thought of it as a bravery issue. I just wanted people to know it’s OK to look this way. I actually felt very empowered as the hair came off.

No More Hair!
However, when I woke up the next day, I began to sob. As the rain fell outside, my tears rolled down my cheeks. I felt almost naked. I can see how people feel sad, alone and want to hide.

People do think I’m a cancer patient. I’ve even connected with other women going through cancer treatments since I shaved my head.

Yes, I wanted to make a statement for women to be proud of how they look — even if they have no hair. As women, we are creatures of beauty. Cancer patients are no different. I love using my Mary Kay business to pamper women and help them feel beautiful.

When you see a cancer patient, consider reaching out and smiling. Let them know you care. It could make all the difference in how they feel that day.

Would I do it all over again? Absolutely! I want to be the change in the world!

Toyota Awards New Prius to Deserving Community Leader

SOURCE: Toyota

DESCRIPTION:

Los Angeles, July 23, 2014 /3BL Media/ – Little did Audrey Moscosa-Rodriguez know that her answer to the question, “where would you go in a new Toyota Prius and why?” would earn her a new hybrid to help her efforts. 
 
Moscosa-Rodriguez was attending this year’s National Council of La Raza (NCLR) Annual Conference, when Toyota invited her – and other attendees – to answer the question. Her response: that she would use the Prius to help promote and encourage Latino teens to graduate high school and apply to college. A panel chose her as the winner and she was presented with the keys to her new car at NCLR’s Latina’s Brunch on Sunday.
 
“I work with a program that helps middle and high school students prepare for academic and career success,” said Moscosa-Rodriguez of Savannah, Ga. “This new Prius will help me reach more students, motivate them toward high school graduation and college access, and prepare them for successful entry into the workforce. I can’t thank Toyota enough for this amazing life changing gift. This is such a tremendous opportunity for me, my students and my community.”
 
The NCLR conference, which ran from July 19 to July 22 in Los Angeles, is the nation’s largest gathering of influential individuals, organizations, institutions and companies working with the Hispanic community.  Toyota was the title sponsor for this year’s event, celebrating ten years as the No. 1 auto choice for U.S. Latinos.
 
“We are proud and grateful to our Latino customers and deeply thankful for their ongoing partnership, friendship and loyalty,” said Bill Fay, Group Vice President and General Manager of the Toyota division at Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc. “We have been a proud partner of NCLR for 15 years and are thrilled to be expanding our efforts to support the important work that NCLR does to expand civic engagement and foster critical conversations across the Latino community.”
 
“We are proud to be working side by side with Toyota and to have them as a committed partner,” says Ron Estrada, Vice President Integrated Marketing and Events at NCLR. “Toyota always brings something new and exciting to our conference and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them be a part of it again this year.”
 
In addition to giving away a new Prius at the conference, Toyota also showcased its most popular vehicles, hosted an autograph session with NASCAR’s German Quiroga, a golf clinic taught by LGPA golfer Lizette Salas and a free concert with Ryan Beatty, gave away car seats and more. 
 
About Toyota’s commitment to the Latino Community
 
Since 1991, Toyota has contributed more than $700 million to American nonprofit groups;  a big part of it going to organizations that support minority populations, including Hispanics.
 
Toyota supports and partners with premier Hispanic organizations that promote the advancement of the Latino community in the United States through education and civic engagement including:

  • National Council of La Raza (NCLR)
  • National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO)
  • League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)
  • Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI)
  • Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF)
  • Latinos in Tech Innovation & Social Media (LATISM)
  • Hispánicize

Toyota has nearly tripled our number of Hispanic-owned Toyota and Lexus dealers since 2000 and is proud to offer programs that keep families safe on the road like the groundbreaking injury prevention initiative “Buckle Up for Life” or “Abróchate a la Vida.”

 
About Toyota 
Toyota (NYSE:TM), the world’s top automaker and creator of the Prius, is committed to building vehicles for the way people live through our Toyota, Lexus and Scion brands.  Over the past 50 years, we’ve built more than 25 million cars and trucks in North America, where we operate 14 manufacturing plants (10 in the U.S.) and directly employ more than 40,000 people (more than 32,000 in the U.S.).  Our 1,800 North American dealerships (1,500 in the U.S.) sold more than 2.5 million cars and trucks (more than 2.2 million in the U.S.) in 2013 – and about 80 percent of all Toyota vehicles sold over the past 20 years are still on the road today.  
 
Toyota partners with philanthropic organizations across the country, with a focus on education, safety and the environment.  As part of this commitment, we share the company’s extensive know-how garnered from building great cars and trucks to help community organizations and other nonprofits expand their ability to do good. For more information about Toyota, visit www.toyotanewsroom.com
 
About NCLR 
The National Council of La Raza (NCLR)—the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States—works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans.  Through its network of nearly 300 affiliated community-based organizations, NCLR reaches millions of Hispanics each year in 41 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.  To achieve its mission, NCLR conducts applied research, policy analysis, and advocacy, providing a Latino perspective in five key areas—assets/investments, civil rights/immigration, education, employment and economic status, and health.  In addition, it provides capacity-building assistance to its Affiliates who work at the state and local level to advance opportunities for individuals and families.
Founded in 1968, NCLR is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan, tax-exempt organization headquartered in Washington, DC, serving all Hispanic subgroups in all regions of the country.  It has state and regional offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, and San Antonio.
