Rides: Summer Safety and Your Vehicle

Summer is in full-effect! Are you ready fun in the sun at the beach and lakes, family vacation, and serious off-road recreation? Nothing puts a damper on your summer enjoyment more than an accident or other unforeseen incidents. Being summer safe means more than slathering on the sunscreen to protect your skin. Protect you and your family from hot-weather disaster by keeping your vehicle(s) summer-ready, too. Give them a good wash and wax as their sunscreen, and then follow these additional tips.

It's been a big summer for Ford: not only did the company reach its emissions goal eight years early in June, it also partnered with Baidu, a Chinese internet company, in order to make your smart car even smarter.

In Ford Motor Company's annual sustainability report, the company revealed that it has hit its lowered emissions goal eight years earlier than expected. Set in 2010, the automotive supplier wanted to reduce its emissions by 30% by 2025. This goal was reached last month when Ford revealed they have lowered CO2 emissions by 3.4 million metric tons.

Everyone dreams of striking oil in their backyard, unearthing priceless artifacts buried underneath their home, or finding a treasure chest full of loot while out on a hike. Unfortunately, getting rich usually doesn't happen this conveniently. Usually. There are times when unexpected wealth sort of falls into your lap out of the blue.

One out of 10 Americans utilize offsite storage rentals, and thanks to reality shows such as Storage Wars and Auction Hunters, more and more people are taking their chances on a stranger's storage unit.

Official Announcement: Varèse Sarabande will release the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on February 5 and on CD February 19, 2016. The album features the original music by composer Fernando Velázquez (CRIMSON PEAK, THE IMPOSSIBLE).

With just over a year to go until Warner Bros.' BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE comes to theaters, there's still plenty of time to speculate just how this superhero rumble will play out. One theory that's recently hit the web comes in the form of a fan-made video by BrickFlix utilizing the ever-popular LEGO style. What does Ben Affleck (still "the bomb in PHANTOMS, yo!") have to do with this Gotham City smackdown? You'll have to watch the video and see for yourself.

TeeFuryPop culture mashups are always a lot of fun, and TeeFury has been one of the leaders when it comes to putting those mashups on your chest in the form of a t-shirt.

Known for their limited-time offerings of just 24 hours a pop, once in awhile a shirt comes back by popular demand, and that's just what happened with "Another Brick in the Wall," a design mashing the iconic multi-colored bricks of LEGO with the title of the 1979 album and 1982 film by PINK FLOYD.
