Hazel Green, United States - September 21, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Airkooled Kustoms, an internationally recognized classic Volkswagen restoration and customization shop, announces its twelfth annual car show, Low Down in Dub Town. The event will be held on the shop grounds in Hazel Green, Alabama on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Gates open at 8:00 a.m. for a day of family-friendly fun. The event is free to the public, featuring an engine blow, car contest, tech talks, and food vendors. Guests can tour the car restoration shop, meet the Airkooled Kustoms Krew to ask questions about classic Volkswagens and Porsches, shop for classic car t-shirts, and help support our nation’s veterans through the Train a Dog, Save a Warrior charity.

Guests can purchase tickets for our annual engine blow 50/50 at registration. The Airkooled Kustoms krew has been hard at work bringing an unsalvageable engine back to life long enough for this highly-anticipated event. At 2:30 p.m., the engine will roar to life, and a timer will mark the seconds or minutes between ignition and complete and catastrophic engine failure. The 50/50 winner will be the ticket-buyer who guessed the time closest to the official engine failure time. The proceeds of the 50/50 will go to support Train a Dog, Save a Warrior.

“Here on the Darkside, we hold Liberty pretty dear to our hearts – and have tremendous gratitude for the men and women in our armed forces who sacrifice so much to ensure it,” said Eric “Spook” LeClair, Founder of Airkooled Kustoms. We also love our pups. So when we learned about this organization through our shop manager, Geoff and his service dog Keoki, we wanted to help. Seeing the bond between man and beast, and recognizing how the support of a well-trained service animal can change lives, we’re proud to make TADSAW this year’s charity. Donations from registration and the engine blow 50/50 will help TADSAW train dogs to help warriors live full, productive lives after giving so much of themselves in service of our great nation.”

There is no entry fee for show cars, but pre-registration on the shop’s website is requested. Local classic Volkswagen enthusiasts are encouraged to enter their vehicles for a chance to be awarded a crowd favorite trophy, designed and built by Rodney Culp.

Airkooled Kustoms is located at 458 Guy Wilson Road, (431/231 North to Pauline Drive, then straight onto Guy Wilson Road). For more information about the event, please visit Airkooled Kustoms online at: www.AirkooledKustoms.com or call (256) 828-2123.

3 get Nobel prize for showing how cells sense low oxygen

Oct 23, 2019

NEW YORK — Two Americans and a British scientist won a Nobel Prize on Monday for discovering details of how the body's cells sense and react to low oxygen levels, providing a foothold for developing new treatments for anemia, cancer and other diseases. Drs. William G. Kaelin Jr. of Harvard University, Gregg L. Semenza of Johns Hopkins University and Peter J. Ratcliffe at the Francis Crick Institute in Britain and Oxford University won the prize for advances in physiology or medicine. The scientists, who worked largely independently, will share the 9 million kronor ($918,000) cash award, said the Karolinska Institute...

Where have the wild birds gone? 3 billion fewer than 1970

Oct 23, 2019

WASHINGTON — A comprehensive study shows there are nearly 3 billion fewer wild birds in North America than in 1970. The new study finds that the bird population in the United States and Canada was probably around 10.1 billion nearly half a century ago and has dropped 29% to about 7.2 billion birds. Study lead author Kenneth Rosenberg, a Cornell University conservation scientist, says the thinning of the flocks is happening before our eyes but is so slow we don't often notice. Rosenberg and colleagues projected population data using weather radar, which captures flocks of migrating birds, 13 different bird...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Oct 23, 2019

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Oct 23, 2019

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...

Pesticide criticized in bee deaths could also kill birds

Oct 23, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine — Scientists studying a widely used pesticide say even small doses of the chemical can have crippling health effects on migrating birds, and it might be contributing to declines in their overall populations. The researchers with the University of Saskatchewan will publish their research about the insect-killer imidacloprid in the journal Science on Friday. The insecticide is among a class called neonicotinoids that has been widely studied for its health impacts on bees. The scientists studied white-crowned sparrows that consumed small doses of the pesticide and found that the birds experienced weight loss and delays in migration. They...
