MONTEREY, Calif., Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Acura today debuted the Acura Precision EV Concept previewing the performance brand’s future design language as it prepares to enter the electrified era starting in 2024 with a dynamically styled all-electric SUV. Once again showcasing the performance brand’s design direction during Monterey Car Week, one of the world’s top gatherings of automotive and motorsports enthusiasts, the concept model was created by the Acura Design Studio in Los Angeles to push the boundaries of Acura design and technology, showcasing Acura’s future vision of electrified vehicles with distinct manual and full driving automation experiences.  

Acura today debuted the Acura Precision EV Concept, previewing the brand’s future design language as it prepares to enter the electrified era starting in 2024 with a dynamically styled all-electric SUV. Once again showcasing the brand’s design direction during Monterey Car Week, the concept was created by the Acura Design Studio in Los Angeles to push the boundaries of Acura design and technology, showcasing Acura’s future vision of electrified vehicles.

“The Acura Precision EV Concept is a design study that will shape the direction of future Acura products in the electrified era including our first all-electric SUV in 2024,” said Emile Korkor, assistant vice president of Acura National Sales. “We are committed to delivering Precision Crafted Performance in every facet of the Acura client experience which includes a powerful and very exciting direction for the next generation of electrified Acura models.”

Inspired by the elegance, artistry and harmony of form and function unique to luxury Italian power boats, the Acura Precision EV Concept expresses Acura’s intense focus on performance with a wide, athletic stance, expressive silhouette and sharp character lines dressed in eye-catching Double Apex Blue with a matte finish.

“The Acura Precision EV Concept is a look into our future direction and continues Acura’s Precision Crafted Performance design language with a modern expression of performance” said Dave Marek, Acura executive creative director. “The Acura Precision EV Concept will be our North Star as we move into an exciting electrified future, and you will see these design cues translate over to future production models.”

The Acura Precision EV Concept features a theatrical lighting approach that previews an electrified powertrain through a dramatic illuminated evolution of Acura’s Diamond Pentagon grille, Chicane DRL signature and new “Particle Glitch” lighting on the front and rear facias. The emotional “Particle Glitch” design theme is repeated on the spokes of the Concept’s striking 23-inch wheels.

“The Acura Precision EV Concept continues to build on Precision Crafted Performance ‘Seamless and Dynamic’ exterior design language with a pronounced front fascia to emphasize the next-generation Seamless Illuminated Fascia for an EV,” said Andy Foster, exterior chief designer.The ‘Particle Glitch’ lower detailing explores what EV performance could look like as Acura shifts toward its electrified future.”

Stimulating, visceral and premium, the performance-focused interior design of the Acura Precision EV Concept reveals Acura’s vision of an immersive experience that engages the driver’s senses. Inspired by the cockpit of a Formula 1 race car with a low-slung driving position, high-performance driver sightlines and a two-grip yoke-style steering wheel, the hyper-modern EV interior space features dual experiences – an exhilarating Instinctive Drive mode that heightens the performance experience and a calming Spiritual Lounge mode during autonomous operation.

  • Instinctive Drive mode maximizes the joy of performance driving by elevating the dynamic connection with the machine with racing-style digital instrumentation and invigorating red ambient and pipe lighting.
  • Spiritual Lounge mode retracts the steering wheel as it transforms the cabin into a warm, calming experience with soothing scents and restful “under water” animated projection so the driver can relax and recharge.

A sanctuary of speed and spirit, the cabin is beautifully crafted with sustainable, environmentally-responsible materials creating premium, unique finishes including marbled recycled plastic trim and 100% biomass leather. All the aluminum used, as well as the dimensional green cast acrylic that forms the steering wheel secondary controls, were made from recycled materials. Milled FSC certified wood, harvested from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits, adds warmth and a connection to nature.

“As the definition of premium and performance evolves to include the application of sustainable materials, we are looking at new and innovative material technologies to inspire our customers while both reducing our carbon footprint and enabling the Acura brand to reshape the perception of quality,” said Gypsy Modina, principal designer: color, materials and finish.

Acura’s third design concept since 2016, the Acura Precision EV Concept also previews the next generation of Acura HMI with an intuitive and easy to use hyper-wide, curved transparent display and haptic touch response. “Particle Glitch” boot up graphics mirror the Concept’s signature exterior detail, visually harmonizing the experience. Life advancing new technologies create an emotional union with the user, automatically identifying and matching the driver’s state with the optimal driving dynamics settings.    

“The Acura Precision EV Concept gives a sneak peek of our future Dual Experience interior design philosophy,” said Simon Yu, senior interior designer. “We want to provide exhilarating performance driving control with a sophisticated and invigorating lounge environment that immerses the driver’s senses.”

Following its world premiere at a private Acura reception Thursday, Aug. 18, the Acura Precision EV Concept will publicly debut on Friday, Aug. 19 at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering. It will then be showcased at the historic Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Concept Lawn on Sunday, Aug. 21.

Pathways LA Statement on The Inflation Reduction Act

0
High Quality Care and Educational Services

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Tamika Farr, CEO of Pathways LA issued the following statement on The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

High Quality Care and Educational Services

Upon review of the Inflation Reduction Act, I support the transformative investment in environmental protection and healthcare measures that the latest reconciliation package outlines. The Inflation Reduction Act allocates nearly $400 billion in transformational climate change proposals that will help reduce carbon emissions by approximately 40% by 2030 and includes enhancements in healthcare subsidies to the most vulnerable in our community. By any measure, the Inflation Reduction Act represents the most ambitious action taken by the federal government to combat climate change and mitigates the exorbitant cost of healthcare access. I applaud the monumental impact that these measures aim to achieve.

However, I am disheartened that our federal leaders have neglected to support child care providers and the millions of young children for whom they care for. Over the past 18 months, Congress and President Biden have deliberated on several iterations of a reconciliation package that promised to address the fractured child care sector and aid the countless families on the brink of poverty. Although Congress passed a Child Tax Credit provision in the American Rescue Plan ACT (ARPA) – a measure that temporarily lifted millions of children out of poverty – child care was omitted in this legislation by a handful of Congressional votes. As a result, a path forward – to build on similar regulations to support families and early care educators who cannot keep up with rampant inflation and the high prices for basic necessities – was obstructed. Despite the shortcomings on Early Childhood Education (ECE) policies, I commend President Biden and the supporting members of Congress for their unwavering convictions to support legislation that will help tackle our nation’s most intractable economic challenges and position the country to lead in critical global policy initiatives.

Put simply, the ECE field faces a precarious fate without proper investments to help mitigate a ruptured infrastructure caused by decades of flawed policy-making across all sectors of government. Providers are indispensable to our nation’s economy at large and to the families they provide care for; therefore, it’s time all our leaders recognized them by implementing substantive investments for the ECE sector. 

To this end, legislation akin to the ARPA bill is what the ECE sector and families across the country need. ARPA ensured that all children received adequate funds for day-to-day expenses and established child care stabilization grants. The Biden administration delivered key initiatives that benefited all American families and invested in the child care sector which is essential for a thriving U.S. economy. I’m hopeful the President will continue to prioritize these measures and ensure quality child care for all children and secure livable wages for all ECE workers.

I look forward to seeing subsequent proposals from Congress and the Biden Administration.

CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Angeles Investors – the investor community finding, funding and growing the most promising Hispanic and Latinx ventures – is pleased to recognize the 2022 Angeles Estrellas award recipients. Awardees, attendees and the industry at large will convene in-person at the Awards in Chicago, Illinois, August 19, 2022, to recognize the top funders and venture capital firms investing in Hispanic and Latinx startups. This year’s honorees exemplify leadership in not only investing in top startups but also investing in founders who are among the fastest growing segments in the U.S. economy.

This year’s Q3 event will take place August 18-19, across multiple sites in Chicago at Google’s Chicago Office, Northern Trust, the Chicago Booth Gleacher Center and Wintrust. The Estrellas awards dinner and cocktails are being sponsored by Goldman Sachs and First Bank Chicago, respectively . Accredited investors will have an opportunity to hear a few of America’s top startups pitch for funding. Click here to view the full agenda.

“It’s exciting to see the number of top funders and venture capital groups investing in Latino startups grow!” In 2020, we started Angeles Investors with the goal of making the venture capital industry aware of all the Latino startup community has to offer. Fast forward two years, we now have a list of 40 Estrellas who are helping us to achieve this goal, and we’re just getting started,” said Adela Cepeda, Angeles Investors Board Chair and Director at BMO Financial Corporation.

It’s been a priority of Chingona Ventures to provide access and opportunity to the Latino startup community, where gaining access to funding — the necessary fuel to grow their companies – is a constant struggle.

“I’ve been fortunate to benefit from having the Latinx community support me in the early days of raising a fund, including many Angeles members. We need organizations like ours to invest and support the startup community where founders receive less than 1% of all venture capital funding,” said Samara Mejia Hernandez, Founding Partner at Chingona Ventures.

Nominations for the Angeles Estrellas award are solicited from Angeles members, partners and the general public. Awardees are evaluated on the quantity of startups invested in, total dollars invested and their commitment to the Hispanic and Latinx startup ecosystem.

P. Julissa García’s new book “Silencio” is a ruminating volume that talks about the wisdom of silence and the peace it brings to one’s soul.

P. Julissa García

BUFORD, Ga., Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Recent release “Silencio” from Page Publishing author P. Julissa García is a meaningful piece that shows the grounding effect of staying silent and letting God do the work.

P. Julissa García, a devout believer of God, has completed her new book “Silencio”: an uplifting opus that gives emphasis on the importance of silence. Silence is a precious gift and can be used as a tool for personal healing. Silence is also a way of surrendering to God and letting Him take over.

García shares, “Few are those who know when to speak and when to remain silent and difficult to find are those who respond with the wisdom of SILENCE when there is no option to deny or do justice by any means other than waiting quietly trusting in a wonderful God.

SILENCIO becomes that sea of words that flow in the soul with the total authority not to stop the just hand of God; because we have decided to remain silent and wait in his time, it is also the alternative to give rest to the debauchery of our words and wait quietly under the shadow of faith.”

Published by Page Publishing, P. Julissa García’s comforting tale is a self-help book that will make readers appreciate the beauty of silence.

Silencio is undoubtedly a soothing and empathetic read.

Readers who wish to experience this heartwarming work can purchase “Silencio” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.

Juan Martin Padilla Rojas

COALINGA, Calif., Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Juan Martin Padilla Rojas, a Mexican who now lives in Coalinga, California; has completed his new book “Don’t Scream! Instead, Save Your Life”: a gripping story that narrates Juan’s personal experience with drowning. Juan and his wife, Blanca, are on their way to Bass Lake to go camping with their relatives. Juan wanted to try swimming in the middle of the lake for a reason. It’s been known that for years, a lot of people got drowned in the rivers and lakes. Due to this, he decided to offer a good solution. Juan plans to create an instructional swimming video to help prevent this catastrophic incident. But things suddenly got out of hand while filming it. Will his knowledge be enough to get him out of that predicament?

Rojas shares, “After swimming for many years, I realized that what makes us float are our lungs when we use them as floats; we do it instinctively. I also realized that knowing how to work our lungs, we have a better chance of survival if we ever get trapped in a strong current. For that reason, I began to explain my experiences because many people drown each year in different rivers and lakes, including those who know how to swim; don’t be just another statistic. In this book, ‘Don’t scream! Instead, Save Your Life’, you will understand why. In addition, it contains a story of love and adventures, and remember: Don’t Scream! Instead, Save Your Life”

Published by Page Publishing, Juan Martin Padilla Rojas’ informative tale is a story of love and adventure combined with water safety and drowning prevention.

NIH-funded researchers develop same-day test to detect abnormal fetal chromosomes

STORK helps identify cause of miscarriage and potentially improves in vitro fertilization process

BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — 

WHAT:
Scientists funded by the National Institutes of Health have developed a same-day test to identify abnormal fetal chromosomes. The Short-read Transpore Rapid Karyotyping (STORK) test can detect extra or missing chromosomes (i.e., aneuploidy) using samples collected from prenatal tests, such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling, as well as tissue obtained from miscarriage and biopsies from pre-implantation embryos produced using in vitro fertilization (IVF). The study is led by Brynn Levy, Ph.D., and Zev Williams, M.D., Ph.D., from Columbia University Fertility Center and Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York City, and is supported by NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) through the Human Placenta Project.

The study team compared STORK to standard methods by testing 218 samples that included tissue from miscarriage, chorionic villi, amniotic fluid and trophectoderm biopsies, which are used to evaluate embryos before IVF implantation. In this set of samples, STORK had an accuracy of 98 to 100%. In another set of 60 samples, technicians in a clinical laboratory certified for quality testing, called a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments certification, performed STORK. In these samples, STORK was 100% in accordance with standard clinical testing.

Overall, the study shows that STORK is comparable to standard clinical tests and has many advantages. STORK is faster, providing results within hours versus several days. It is also cheaper, with the study team estimating STORK to cost less than $50 per sample, if 10 samples are run at the same time, or up to $200 if a sample is run on its own. STORK can also be done at the point-of-care for a patient, eliminating the need to ship a sample to a clinical laboratory.  

According to the study authors, STORK may be particularly useful in identifying genetic causes of miscarriage. Currently, professional societies only recommend genetic testing if a person has had multiple miscarriages, but an easy, cost-effective test like STORK can potentially be offered after the first miscarriage. STORK can also be used to streamline the IVF process. Currently, embryos must be frozen while genetic tests are run and analyzed before implantation. STORK’s ability to provide results within hours can presumably eliminate this freezing step, which saves time and cost. More work is needed to validate STORK, but if results continue to show promise, STORK could improve the quality of reproductive healthcare.

Additional NIH funding comes from the National Cancer Institute.

Lázaro Felipe García Fonseca’s new book “Los Motivos del Lobo” is an engrossing fiction about a man’s wicked revenge and its dire consequences.

Los Motivos del Lobo

Recent release “Los Motivos del Lobo” from Page Publishing author Lázaro Felipe García Fonseca is a dark story that presents a man’s calamitous actions after the untimely passing of his wife.

MIAMI, Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Lázaro Felipe García Fonseca, a Cuban native, has completed his new book “Los Motivos del Lobo”: a gripping tale that contains heavy topics such as suicide and mental illness. The main character’s grief pushed him to the edge, losing his capability to think rationally. The pain of losing his loved one urged him to commit brutal acts against mankind. It’s an unfortunate story of a man whose agony and anger led him to the path of self-destruction.

Los Motivos del Lobo

García Fonseca shares, “The title of the book is based on the poetry of the Nicaraguan writer Rubén Darío.

In this novel, the protagonist René Medina Castillo has to resist the injustice of a racist lieutenant and a woman driven by lust. René Medina is removed from his military rank and expelled from the Navy. So Medina’s wife commits suicide out of grief at what the press writes about her husband’s case.

The immense pain drives Medina to madness, to such an extent that he thinks he sees his wife in his dreams; and that she demands revenge. This schizophrenic situation leads Medina to carry out two terrorist acts, two criminal acts; to avenge the death of his wife.

The novel runs in the United States, The Bahamas and Puerto Rico. In the end, René Medina decides to commit suicide, and with his death pay his ruthless revenge. This novel is totally fictional, because nothing like that can slightly touch reality.”

Published by Page Publishing, Lázaro Felipe García Fonseca’s immersive tale explores the devastating consequences of acting out on rage and vengeance.

This suspenseful read is worth a person’s time. 

Readers who wish to experience this chilling work can purchase “Los Motivos del Lobo” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
