The National Limousine Association (NLA) and When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Revelation Foundation (WGS) join forces on The Aspire Initiative, a domestic violence program, which aims to reduce the level of intimate relationship violence in the US and instill the importance of bystander responsibility. With an escalating number of passenger assaults alleged against ride-hailing app drivers, the NLA believes Aspire is vital to ending violence and sexual assault. Robin McGraw announced the partnership in a video message posted to her Foundation’s Facebook timeline on Friday, November 20th. The message was then shared by Robin’s husband and television personality Dr. Phil McGraw to his show’s Facebook page timeline on Monday, November 23rd.
The Aspire Initiative is available free of charge and includes a potentially-lifesaving smartphone app, Aspire News, a smartphone app available as a free download on Google Play, as well as at www.whengeorgiasmiled.org, that allows the user to create a pre-written text or voice message to be sent to designated numbers (i.e., 911 or other chosen contacts) with just the tap of a button. The ignition of the app‘s “go button” also starts a recording to capture the details of the domestic violence encounter and/or other dangerous events taking place. Aspire News is designed to appear like any other smart phone app to the untrained eye, allowing it to be downloaded and used discreetly.

On Thursday night, Feb. 26, at midnight, the Las Vegas Strip welcomed its newest outdoor entertainment spectacle: the Swarovski Midnight Celebration at Grand Bazaar Shops. Created for Swarovski’s custom pavilion and six-story-tall Starburst, the Swarovski Midnight Celebration was designed to be the centerpiece of the new Grand Bazaar Shops, providing a unique retail and entertainment experience.
The Swarovski Midnight Celebration is a dazzling three-minute-long light-and-sound show designed to mark the dawn of a new day. The spectacle was envisioned as a way to bring New Year’s Eve-style excitement to the Strip every night of the year. The production incorporates the Swarovski Starburst—a one-of-a-kind, 14-foot-diameter structure composed of 911 custom-cut Swarovski crystal spheres—as well as a large video screen embedded into the multi-faceted façade of the Swarovski pavilion. Evocative scenes from exotic bazaars, together with the Starburst’s more than 1,800 points of LED light, are choreographed to a dramatic original score featuring enchanting beats of world music.

Since the beginning of the year French Open champion Maria Sharapova has been competing for titles on the tennis tour. Before she left to start the new season, the Porsche brand ambassador did a few laps in a Porsche 911 Turbo S – and unveiled her formula for success.
Break of dawn in Los Angeles: The beach is still deserted at that time. Only Maria Sharapova is already on her feet, ready for her daily workout. Fitness is not the only key to her success. The tennis ace emphasizes mental strength. "As long as you put in all your power, your faith and your creativity, you can win every match", she says in a recent video for Porsche.

Was wäre eine Automesse ohne sie, die Sportwagen. Für die Mehrzahl der Besucher werden sie immer Träume bleiben, einige andere erfüllen sich diesen langgehegten Traum. Wir haben auf der IAA mal geschaut, was sich in Sachen Sportwagen getan hat. Revolution oder Evolution? Ob es für ein exklusives Auto immer einer Revolution bedarf, beantwortet Bugatti auf eine ganz eigene Weise. Dieser Grand Sport Vitesse mag auf den ersten Blick unspektakulär wirken. Er ist aber Bestandteil einer sechsteiligen Edition namens „Bugatti Legends“. Eine Revolution sucht man auch beim Contiental GT V8 vergebens. Verglichen mit dem Lamborghini fällt diese allerdings gemäßigter aus. Bei Lamborghini hat man sich auf Evolution konzentriert. Mit der neuesten Version namens Squadra Corse haben sich die Ingenieure vom Rennauto aus dem Trofeo-Markenpokal inspirieren lassen. Porsche Weltpremiere mit dem neuen 911 Turbo, alles in allem eher eine Evolution. Die Revolution findet sich in Form des 918 Spyder.
