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.

San Francisco prosecutors turn to AI to reduce racial bias

Jun 18, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — In a first-of-its kind experiment, San Francisco prosecutors are turning to artificial intelligence to reduce racial bias in the courts, adopting a system that strips certain identifying details from police reports and leaves only key facts to govern charging decisions. District Attorney George Gascon announced Wednesday that his office will begin using the technology in July to "take race out of the equation" when deciding whether to accuse suspects of a crime. Criminal-justice experts say they have never heard of any project like it, and they applauded the idea as a creative, bold effort to make charging...

Apple previews new software as it diversifies beyond iPhones

Jun 18, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple, beset by falling iPhone sales, announced upcoming changes to its phone and computer software intended to highlight its new digital services and to further position it as a defender of personal privacy. The revisions previewed Monday during a conference in San Jose, California, included a new feature that will let people log into apps and other services with an Apple ID instead of relying on similar sign-in options from Facebook and Google — two companies that mine data to sell advertising. Apple said it won't collect tracking information about users from that service. As part...

Feds to investigate spike in gray whale deaths on West Coast

Jun 18, 2019

SEATTLE — U.S. scientists said Friday they will investigate why an unusual number of gray whales are washing up dead on West Coast beaches. About 70 whales have been found dead so far this year on the coasts of California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, the most since 2000. About five more have been discovered on British Columbia beaches. That's a very small fraction of the total number of whales believed to have died, because most simply sink and others wash up in such remote areas they're not recorded. NOAA Fisheries on Friday declared the die-off an "unusual mortality event," providing...

Sound barrier to chase seals, prevent shark attacks debated

Jun 18, 2019

BOSTON — A plan to develop an acoustic system to chase away seals in order to prevent shark attacks is the latest front in the debate about how Cape Cod should respond in the wake of last year's shark attacks. Deep Blue LLC presented the idea for an "invisible fence" to the Barnstable County Commissioners on Wednesday, drawing support from some officials and residents but concern from local animal rights groups. Company owner Willy Planinshek envisions a system of underwater audio devices set up at the region's most popular swimming beaches. The devices would be mounted on buoys some distance...

NTSB: Autopilot was in use before Tesla hit semitrailer

Jun 18, 2019

DETROIT — A Tesla Model S involved in a fatal crash with a semitrailer in Florida March 1 was operating on the company's semi-autonomous Autopilot system, federal investigators have determined. The car drove beneath the trailer, killing the driver, in a crash that is strikingly similar to one that happened on the other side of Florida in 2016 that also involved use of Autopilot. In both cases, neither the driver nor the Autopilot system stopped for the trailers, and the roofs of the cars were sheared off. The crash, which remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board and...
