The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible takes Corvette’s heritage to new heights as the first hardtop and mid-engine convertible in Corvette’s 66-year history. The fighter jet-inspired design maintains the same storage as coupe, even with the topdown.

Powered by the next-generation 6.2L Small Block V-8 LT2 engine, the 2020 Stingray convertible will produce 495 horsepower (369 kW) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque when equipped with performance exhaust – the most horsepower and torque for any entry Corvette.

Jeff Langlois

It took a one-way road trip for Jeff Langlois to cultivate a passion for photography. The adventure to LA brought forth stunning deserts and mountainous peaks, as he drove from Minneapolis through the Rockies – in a 2002 Honda Civic; eager to jumpstart a career at a commercial house called The Mill. The best way to balance out the fast-paced, unpredictable, and ever-changing environment that is advertising, was to break away and see what the west coast really looks like. Traveling solo allowed him to arrive in beautiful destinations and wait for these locations to unveil their scenic characteristics. Jeff notes that the best shots always come unexpectedly. Now while still mainly shooting the outdoors, he plans just enough to get him out and moving around, but his best and most memorable shots come unexpectedly. It’s about showing up and being patient and receptive to what’s going on.

Steps to Take Following a Car Accident

Car travel has become so commonplace in everyday life that it is easy to take peaceful car rides for granted and ignore the potential hazards cars create. No one wants to imagine being involved in a car accident. But in the unfortunate event you ever are in an accident, you should always remember to take these steps to ensure any claims you may want to make against whomever caused the accident are preserved:

Do Your Best to Remain Calm

Yes, this one is much more easily said than done. Your heart is probably racing. You are probably upset or angry with the person who caused the accident, and you may be in physical pain. Even so, you must do everything you can to keep your cool if you want the accident and, down the line, your claim against whomever is responsible, to be handled properly.

Check to See If Anyone in Your Car—Including You—Is or May Be Injured

Car accidents can lead to all types of injuries. Some are minor, some are of life-altering severity and some are so catastrophic they can lead to death. You may not realize you are injured until hours, days or even weeks after an accident. Once the dust has settled, check yourself for any signs of injury, such as scrapes, scratches, skin discoloration, bumps anywhere on your body, blood or anything else that feels or appears abnormal. If you are physically able to do so, you should call the police. If you need emergency medical treatment, tell the operator to send an ambulance to the scene. You should also begin taking pictures of your car and of any injuries you believe you sustained.

If You Feel Up to It, See If Anyone Outside Your Car Is Injured

If you feel you can exit your car without risking any further injury to yourself or anyone else, check on the driver and any passengers in all other vehicles involved. They will likely appreciate your concern, and this will give you an opportunity to assess their physical and mental state in the moment if they claim any injuries later. When you check on them, exchange car insurance information with all the other drivers involved in the accident and talk to anyone who witnessed the accident.

Call the Police and Talk to the Responding Police Personnel When They Arrive

Calling the police is essential. When they arrive, they will take statements from all the drivers and witnesses, record each driver’s insurance information, make note of any citations being issued, issue citations and write a comprehensive report. It is important to make sure the responding police personnel get as much information about the accident as possible to determine who caused it and what penalty will be assessed to whomever is responsible. They will also likely ask if you need emergency medical care. If you do want medical attention, they will call an ambulance staffed with emergency medical technicians to the scene. Just to be on the safe side, you should let medical personnel examine you.

Take Pictures of Everything—Yes, Everything

You should take as many pictures of the cars and people involved in the accident as you can. These pictures will be extremely valuable as evidence of the accident’s severity and as evidence of any injuries you sustained. Without this type of evidence, even the best personal injury lawyer will be starting off at a disadvantage in proving your case. Taking pictures of the scene can be beneficial, too, to provide context when you describe the accident later.

Go to the Emergency Room, Even If Only As a Precautionary Measure

Even if you are not in pain and you do not feel any different than normal, you should go to the emergency room to be examined. Deciding you feel fine at the scene, declining treatment and then realizing you need to be treated after the fact is the last thing you want. Beyond the inconvenience of then having to get to the emergency room or an urgent-care facility on your own, there is a chance your injuries will have worsened in the time since the accident.

Contact an Experienced Car Accident Attorney

You want someone with experience in the courtroom and someone who knows how to recover the money clients are owed. When you select an attorney, you should choose the Los Angeles car accident attorney who will be your most effective advocate both in court and in negotiating with insurance companies. Contact West Coast Trial Lawyers for additional information about how to select the best personal injury lawyer.

File Your Insurance Claims

This is where getting insurance information from any other drivers involved in the accident will pay off. If you do not have their information, you cannot file a claim for damages with their car insurance company and recover for your injuries. An experienced car accident attorney will be able to guide you through the claim process. Without this information, even the best personal injury attorney will have difficulty collecting your damages from the at-fault person or persons.

Be Diligent with Respect to Continuing Medical Treatment for Your Injuries

Listen to your doctors. Attend your follow-up appointments with them. They will discharge you from their care when they believe you are well enough to do without it. Do not try to manage your own care. Your doctors have your best interest in mind and will treat you until you have reached maximum medical improvement.

Take Your Car Accident Attorney’s Advice

The process of recovering damages from at-fault drivers after an accident seems daunting. When an experienced Los Angeles accident attorney is representing you, you will have peace of mind in knowing your attorney has a thorough understanding of the judicial system and knows how to handle your claim. The ability to receive thoughtful advice from a seasoned professional is one of the biggest advantages of having an accident attorney to represent you. Trust your attorney’s judgment and listen to the advice your attorney provides. In the end, when your claim is resolved, you will be happy you did.

Get your dog’s A-Game back

Is your dog’s scratching more than “just an itch?” Actress and life-long dog lover Kate Walsh knows first-hand that dogs can be “off their game” because of allergic itching, leading to more serious problems if not treated by a veterinarian. Kate joins us today to share important info on how you can get your dog’s A-Game back.

As a lifelong dog lover, how did you know that Rosie was off her game?


Kate Walsh: She started scratching her face in sort of a cute way at first with both paws at the same time. And then it turned into a regular thing where it wouldn’t stop, and I realized pretty quickly it was probably allergies. So I took her into my veterinarian, and she prescribed Apoquel for Rosie.

How should we know when and if it’s more than an itch, and when it’s time for our pets to visit their veterinarian?

Kate Walsh: If the itching and scratching starts interrupting their regular daily activities — if they’re on a walk and they have to stop several times to scratch and itch or chew, or if they wake up in the middle of the night to chew, those are signs that there’s a problem. A lot of dog owners think oh, that’s just my dog itching but it’s likely allergies. If you see these signs, it’s a good idea to visit your veterinarian and see if Apoquel might work for you. It certainly worked for Rosie.

How should people with pets avoid allergies for some of their animals?

Kate Walsh: It’s hard to avoid allergens because so many allergies are environmental and are out of our control – just like humans with pollens or grasses, or during certain times of the year. For some dogs it’s seasonal allergies, some are perpetual and year-round. There’s really no way to prevent them so it’s about going to the veterinarian and seeing what they have to say. It’s also important to understand that dog allergies manifest differently than human allergies do. In dogs, allergies show as skin itching, chewing and hotspots – not coughing and sneezing like humans.

And how did you help Rosie get her A game back?

Kate Walsh: Well, I got her on Apoquel right away. Within a couple of days she was back on her A-game, happy, smiling, walking, tail wagging, able to relax and not scratching her face constantly. One of my favorite parts about this partnership is how we’re encouraging everyone out there to go to MyDogsAGame.com or use the hashtag #MyDogsAGame on social media to share a picture of your dog. For every photo uploaded, Zoetis will donate $10 to the K-9 Courage Program, which is an awesome program that provides medical services to retired service dogs, military service dogs, police service dogs. So that’s a really exciting aspect of this partnership as well. We’re not just raising awareness about what dog allergies look like, but really contributing and making sure all dogs are well cared for.

And what inspired you to represent an organization to help Canine Courage?

Kate Walsh: I love dogs. I’ve always loved them. I’ve grown up with them–they’re just so special and intuitive. I’m also a big fan of our service men and women and everything that they do for our country – so the partnership was a perfect fit. Most people don’t think about how retired service dogs are cared for, and the fact that the K9 Courage program helps support the medical care for retired service dogs is really cool.

So you’ve always been an advocate for pets?

Kate Walsh: Oh yeah. I have always been a big pet adoption advocate and an animal lover. I mean if I could, I’d be on a farm somewhere with lots of cats and dogs.

And where can our listeners go for more information?

Kate Walsh: You can go to MyDogsAGame.com If you have any questions, there’s actually a short quiz on there as well to help you determine if your dogs may have allergies, as well as more information about finding the right treatment like Apoquel.

She also recently starred in the off-Broadway play IF I FORGET, for which she was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Drama League award.

Today, Walsh has teamed up with leading animal health company, Zoetis, to educate dog owners about a cause close to her heart – allergic dog itch. Walsh has credited her two rescue dogs for helping her through the most difficult times, but when her dog Rosie was diagnosed with allergic itch, it was time for Walsh to help Rosie get her A-Game back. Like Rosie, some dogs are “off their game” because their allergic itch gets in the way of doing things they love. Kate is encouraging dog owners to recognize when their dog’s scratching can be more than just an itch – and if it’s caused by an underlying condition, like allergies. As part of the program and in honor of Itchy Pet Awareness Month, pet owners can share a photo of their own pet’s “A-Game” on social media using the #MyDogsAGame hashtag, which will trigger a $10 donation (capped at $25K) by Zoetis Petcare to its K-9 Courage Program, which provides healthcare assistance to retired military and police dogs as well as active service dogs that assist veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress. Posts using the hashtag may also be featured on an interactive gallery on the “MyDogsAGame.com” website.

About G-SHOCK 

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’.

Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure.
