Sunscreens Containing Oxybenzone Killing Coral Reefs Around World Chemical

Oxybenzone, also known as benzonephenone-3, is a common chemical filters found in sunscreens.

It forms colorless crystals that are readily soluble, and provides UV coverage.

There are studies showing that thousands of tons of sunscreen are ending up in our oceans and killing coral reefs.  Apparently toxic to coral, as the sunscreens are used by beachgoers the chemical enters the water and kills the closest coral to shore.  Hawaii could be the first state to ban the use of sunscreens with these chemicals.  The sunscreen lobby is fighting any efforts to ban the use.

There are alternatives and responsible producers are moving to other chemicals in light of the studies.

A TIME story in 2011, lists the products to avoid and those with the highest scores recommended by consumer reports.

To buy bitcoins is a simple task. The very first step requires a Coinbase account. So, first sign up for Coinbase, which would eventually become the safe place to accumulate your bitcoins and your simple payment technique to change your actual currency from and into bitcoins. After this, one has to link his bank account with his Coinbase account, verify it and can start his purchasing.

Lastly, now he has to buy and sell bitcoins, which means now either you can buy bitcoins using your actual money or sell bitcoins to get you original money back. The value of them differentiates from time to time so it’s pretty favorable for someone who buys it so that whenever they need a good amount of money, they can sell it. Also, you will always be notified of the most recent rate of exchange before you buy or sell it.

Can you really make money with bitcoins?

Bitcoins are more like online gold or online investment. People buy gold and the value of gold in accordance of money keeps fluctuating, likewise bitcoins can be bought and stored and when the time of need comes, the owner can sell and can earn more than what he paid to buy one bitcoin.

Scheduled to re-open August 25, 2017, according to Yelp.

Menu location website.

If you have been to the other Nick’s locations you will agree that the quality of food is high. One favorite is their brunch menu.

Established in 2008, in Laguna Beach, CA

Classic American comfort food, crave-able bar snacks, plus unique cocktails & an extensive wine list.

Nick’s Lake Avenue in Pasadena takes a slight detour from the coastal contemporary designs found at its six sister venues, the newest Nick’s features a stunning balcony, private wine room, and an airy garden room – all working harmoniously to combine the warmth and hospitality of a Nick’s with the finishes of marble, imported tile, wrought iron, and custom woodwork.

Open Late Summer 2017

Tesla (TSLA) & Model 3 Production Status @TeslaMotors

If you are one of the several hundred thousand people who placed a reservation for a Tesla Model 3, you are probably wondering what the status is. Since putting down $1000 to reserve there has been little communication about the Model 3 from Tesla, we know a few bits, from either twitter or releases, but beyond that things are still unclear.

What we have heard is that by December 2017, production of the Model 3, should be at 20,000 vehicles per month, if that is right it could be 2019, before many see their Model 3.

Tax credits/rebates will be reduced after the first 200,000 Tesla vehicles are sold.

How does the US federal EV tax credit phase out work when Tesla hits 200,000 cars sold in the US and how does is affect the Model 3?

IRS IRC30D Tax credit phase out document:

Federal Tax Credits for All-Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles…

To claim a credit you need to fill out IRS form 8636 here

Existing Tesla owners, Model S and Model X are first in line and have priority on orders. So most likely once all the existing Tesla owner orders are filled, there may not be any tax credits left.

Some existing Tesla owners are offering their orders to friends and family.

Tesla has a missed opportunity by not communicating better with half a million people who believe enough in Tesla and Elon Musk. We may get a better idea of what the future holds on Friday 8:45pm.  You can head over to to watch as the first Tesla Model 3 are delivered to owners, live streaming. The July 28, 2017 event is significant as it confirms that Tesla is on target to deliver the Model 3, and those on the fence about cancelling will perhaps ride it out through 2017 and maybe 2018.

You can listen to a song someone wrote about waiting for his Tesla Model 3.  Everyone who is holding a reservation probably feels like number 400k in line, except for those existing owners.  If Tesla offers driving opportunities of the Model 3, it will surely help especially if it is impressive.
