“From its debut in 1925, a Rolls-Royce Phantom has been the choice of the world’s most influential and powerful men and women, and as a result, a constant presence at history’s most defining moments” – Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today unveiled the eighth generation Phantom at a gala reception in London.  Flanked by seven great Phantoms representing the first seven generations of the car, Phantom VIII is the 21st Century incarnation of the world’s longest running automotive nameplate and what is inarguably the “best car in the world.”

This wholly new contemporary design of Rolls-Royce Phantom DNA offers an all-new aluminium ‘Architecture of Luxury’ which underpins the Phantom and ensures the architectural and proportional lineage of Rolls-Royce while delivering a new level of ‘Magic Carpet Ride:’ lighter, stiffer, quieter than ever.

The most technologically advanced Rolls-Royce ever with a central nervous system that connects and controls all the advanced intelligence systems of the New Phantom.

As the patron settles into the car, an assistant or valet steps forward and lightly touches the sensor on the door handle so it whispers closed of its own accord, enveloping the occupant in ‘The Embrace,’ enhancing the sense of occasion and effortlessness of entry into the New Phantom.

At the heart of the New Phantom’s modern design is a wholly contemporary reinterpretation of a motor car’s dashboard, ‘The Gallery, behind a single pane of the glass. ‘The Gallery’ houses the analogue clock – a nod to the fact that  “the loudest sound you can hear in a Rolls-Royce…is the tick of the clock.”

An all-new 6.75 litre twin-turbo V12 engine is the silently beating heart of the New Phantom debuting the next chapter of Rolls-Royce’s existence.

“Phantom is the epitome of effortless style, a historical nameplate that occupies a rarefied space in the luxury constellation and conjures a rare magic all of its own. The New Phantom raises a glass to an illustrious design legacy whilst forging a modern and revitalised presence for the next era of Royce-Royce design.” — Giles Taylor, Director of Design, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 15, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — ACR Electronics shares Rita Wagner a 78-year-old hiker’s “Survivor Story,” after she was recently rescued from Calico Tanks Peak in Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas.

A long-time and experienced member of the group, 52 Peak Club, Rita was approaching the peak when she fell backwards after the sandstone rocks broke beneath her, cracking her elbow, injuring her back and suffering severe lacerations.

That days group leader, Chris Hanna said, “Rita was in great pain and bleeding profusely. There were medical professionals on the hike that administered first aid and quickly determined she was in shock and needed to get to a hospital immediately. I deployed the ResQLink knowing that our fellow hiker was in grave danger. It triggered a response in less than one hour from our highly trained Las Vegas Search and Rescue by helicopter that was able to zero in on our location with ease because of the dual frequency design. The officer in charge stated they really appreciate the ResQLink Personal Locator Beacon as it makes their job easier and more efficient.”

Rita replied, “I never go out without my PLB, although hoped I would never have to use it. I recommend that every hiker of any age or skill level carry one. I often go out hiking on my own, so my ACR PLB is always in my pack.”

Rita expressed, “I am still hurting, but it hurts to sit too so I may as well be out walking, though I am staying on the trail for now. I solo hiked last September to Mt. Whitney, the highest mountain in the lower 48 states at 14,508 ft. I have done it four times and hope to do it again this year!” Keep Reading

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ 360WiseNews / — Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently teamed with The Strength Lab at Union Fitness for a powerlifting clinic in Pittsburgh. Xtreme Powerlifting Coalition member and author Casey Williams provided hands-on coaching for warriors during the squat, deadlift, and bench press exercises.

“Since leaving the Army, my physical health deteriorated,” said wounded warrior Tony Canzonieri. “A few months ago, I began working out and found myself looking and feeling better. Having never lifted weights, this event was an opportunity to gain a new skill and continue my fitness journey, working my way back to a healthy weight and mindset.”

During the program, warriors learned fundamental powerlifting movements while connecting with fellow service members. Exercises started at the beginner level and progressed to more experienced levels with breakout fitness stations available during rotations. Many participants will continue their training and preparation to ultimately compete in an official powerlifting meet.

These connection activities support the long-term recovery needs of warriors by reintroducing them to the unique bonds experienced during military service. In a WWP survey of the injured warriors it serves, more than half of survey respondents (51.7 percent) talked with fellow Global War on Terrorism veterans to address their mental health issues, and 29.6 percent expressed physical activity helps.

Peter Gilgan and the Canadian Cancer Society donate to Women’s College Hospital to launch new national strategy on care for women’s cancers

The Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers in Partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society will be established at Women’s College Hospital

TORONTO, Feb. 3, 2017 /CNW/ 360WiseNews/ – Peter Gilgan, one of Canada’s most influential philanthropists, and the Canadian Cancer Society are providing a collaborative $12 million gift to Women’s College Hospital (WCH), establishing an unprecedented collaboration that will further research, education and innovation in the field of women’s cancers – particularly breast, ovarian and thyroid cancers.

Together, Women’s College Hospital and the Canadian Cancer Society will launch a major new initiative to transform care for women’s cancers on a national scale by drawing together WCH’s excellence in research, clinical care, innovation and education and then leveraging that knowledge across the country through the Canadian Cancer Society’s national network.

With the significant leadership investment from Peter Gilgan and the Canadian Cancer Society, a centre in women’s cancers will be established at Women’s College Hospital. In recognition of their leadership, vision and profound generosity, the centre will be named The Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers at Women’s College Hospital, in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society.

“Finding innovative solutions to our health system’s most pressing challenges is a cornerstone of the work we do at Women’s College,” said Marilyn Emery, President & CEO, Women’s College Hospital. “Our clinicians, researchers and educators work side-by-side to improve healthcare for all patients, not only those who walk through our hospital doors. This partnership will enable us to further our work to close the health gaps that exist for women and within our healthcare system.”

In Canada, the rate of diagnosis for all cancers in women continues to rise while, in contrast, the rate of cancers in men remains stable. As rates of diagnosis continue to grow, so too will the demand on healthcare services. But gaps in the healthcare system – such as limited access to services and resources – can make the journey much more difficult for many women facing cancer, especially those in marginalized, remote or rural communities.

“Strong and healthy families have been at the core of my beliefs and values,” said Gilgan, father, grandfather and founder of Mattamy Homes, the largest privately-owned home builder in North America. “When a wife, mother, daughter or sister is diagnosed with cancer, it is devastating. If I can play a small part and enable a collaboration that will leverage tremendous expertise, knowledge and reach, then I’m in,” he stated.

“Time and time again, Peter Gilgan has demonstrated that philanthropy truly does have the power to change lives,” said Katherine Hay, President & CEO of Women’s College Hospital Foundation. “His enduring belief in the expertise and leadership of Women’s College Hospital has ignited tremendous progress for the health of women on a local, national and international scale – progress that is now reaching bold new heights with the launch of The Peter Gilgan Centre for Women’s Cancers. Together with the Canadian Cancer Society, we will achieve our vision to transform cancer care for women – all women.” Keep Reading
