The death rate is increasing, and it does not matter if you are young or old.

NASCAR Restarts 2020 Racing Season

The 2020 NASCAR Season revved up again on May 17 at Darlington Raceway with a star-studded lineup of drivers.

We congratulate Kevin Harvick who won the race with the NuShield Triple A anti-glare screen protector on board. This is the fifth year that the Stewart-Haas team is using the NuShield Triple A film to eliminate glare from the McClaren Digital Race Dash instrument panel. Just like you, racecar drivers need to maintain a clear view of the road and their digital instrument panel. They also fight sun glare coming in from the side windows and reflecting onto the panel during the day. When you are driving in excess of 170 mph you only have time to quickly glance at the display.

Are You Getting Germs With Your Fries?

When you decide to dine out, how comfortable are you that your waiter or food handler is concerned about passing germs to you along with your food?

Food workers are supposed to wash their hands and follow certain safety instructions when handling food, but these practices are mostly ignored. While most employees will wash their hands after going to the bathroom, these same people will cough or sneeze into their hands and then transfer their germs directly to your food. Even if they are wearing gloves while handling food, there is always the chance that they will wipe their nose and transfer the germs onto their gloves and eventually onto your plate.

Are Sun Glare Related Accidents Under-Reported?

By Jane Graham

Sun glare is responsible for just a few hundred auto accidents every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The AAA, on the other hand, argues that sun glare is a contributing factor to thousands of accidents annually.
