Nissan Says Many of Models Contain SPF 500 Protection

Sun SPF 500 - Hudiburg Nissan

Most people know that they need sunscreen to protect them from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays when you are enjoying a long day at the beach or the park, but did you know that you are still exposed to the sun when you are driving?

Luckily, many automakers produce vehicles with windshields that offer a degree of UV protection, but Nissan is raising the bar. According to Nissan, most of their vehicles offer UV protection for up to SPF 500 – a level that would surely protect an overwhelming majority of drivers.

This is excellent news, as not only does sun exposure cause painful burns in the short-term, but also, it can lead to early skin aging – and worse – skin cancer. Thankfully, behind the wheel of a Nissan, you are more than reasonably covered.

Updates to the 2016 Nissan Altima

2016 Nissan AltimaThe Altima debuted just three years ago and has been a popular sell since. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t have impressive updates. The 2016 Nissan Altima is here to impress.

The 2016’s exterior has been completely restyled, from the hood to the fenders. The new V-motion grille improves aerodynamics and a rear decklid spoiler not only ads a sporty accent but cuts down on wind resistance. New taillights have a stylish, integrated design that increases your visibility.

Comfort is all-abound in the new Altima. Interior materials have been upgraded and the seats reshaped to conform to you, the driver, even better. Your center stack is all redesigned to have a more accessible layout. You’ll have instant access to all controls.

But it’s not all new. The 2016 Nissan Altima keeps elements from the 2015 that’ll keep you in communication at all times, like Nissan Connect. You’re just a touch away from access to all kinds of entertainment, information, and navigation.

You’ll be safe, too, with technologies like Blind Spot Warning, Predictive Forward Collision Warning and Forward Emergency Braking, which all exist to give you assistance when you most need it. Keep an eye out for the 2016 Nissan Altima.

Oklahoma City Schools Votes to Shorten School Year

Oklahoma City Schools TeacherYour kids had something even more exciting about the end of the school this year. Oklahoma City Schools recently voted to shorten the school year.

The year was shortened by two days, from May 27th to May 25th, but it’s quite the difference to the school board. Scott Randall, the overseer for capital projects, operations, and information for Oklahoma City Schools, said that the two-day shortening saved the school district $20,000 per day.

This last-minute decision was suggested by superintendent Aurora Lora not only to save money but to help boost teacher morale. It’s not just that the teachers received two days off, but these days also were devoted to professional development.

Concerns are still present, of course. Some board members were concerned that parents would have trouble finding daycare for those days and that kids who rely on school-provided lunches wouldn’t get proper meals.

The two-day cut was part of an overall goal to cut $30 million dollars from the budget before the next school year.

The overall consensus has yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure: we know that kids loved getting out two days early.

New Smylie Kaufman Murano Comes as Prize for 2016 Golf Tournament

Murano Golf Prize

After having a great time on the golf course, Nissan recently arranged for Smylie Kaufman to receive a new Murano. In an interview before the 2016 Masters, Kaufman had mentioned that his parents drove a 2008 Murano. Nissan thought it was only fair that they receive an updated model if he won.

According to Nissan, the Smylie Kaufman Murano will be delivered to Kaufman’s hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. The Nissan Murano is one of many models that participates in the Nissan Green Program, recognized annually by the US Environmental Protection Agency as an Energy Star Partner of the year. So in addition to winning the green jacket at the Masters, Kaufman also wins a green car.

“No matter who wears the green jacket at the end of the day, Smylie is already a winner in our book,” said Jeremy Tucker, Nissan North America vice president of Marketing Communications and Media. “From his hole-in-one on Wednesday’s par three event to his great round on ‘moving day’ we’re impressed by his poise at Augusta and were thrilled to hear of his choice of wheels at home.”

Kaufman was born in 1991, and his full name is Carter Smylie Kaufman. After being named the 2011 Alabama Amateur, Kaufman gained worldwide recognition for his incredible skill despite his young age.

What to Do if You Breakdown: Emergency Driving Situations

Caution Triangle

Knowing what to do if you breakdown is especially important for drivers to know. Whether you have an old junker or a brand new ride, you can breakdown virtually anywhere. Read on to discover what you can do if your car won’t start.

According to Geico, one of the most important things to do is to make sure you are safe. If you are in the middle of nowhere, you want to make sure you are not vulnerable should someone approach you. If a stranger does come and offer assistance, politely decline—no matter how friendly they may seem.

Listen to your car. If it clicks but does not turn over, it is likely a dead battery. This is one of the most common issues for people that can’t start their car. Flick the lights to see if they seem unusually dim as well. You may also have issues with wiring, the alternator, or other electrical components.

Does the car crank? This could be a range of things. If the engine will crank but not start, it is time to call for assistance. Try and call a tow company, or use a roadside emergency program if possible.

In order to avoid these situations, always have regular service performed on your car. This includes oil changes to battery tests and basic inspections. With routine service, you can keep your car working better for longer.
