The Voice of Mack the Truck Raves About Trucking | Transport Topics Online | Trucking, Freight Transportation and Logistics News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The son of a Texaco truck driver from Bridgeport, Connecticut, actor John Ratzenberger has always had a strong affinity for the industry. So after he became famous as voluble mailman Cliff Clavin in the 1980s sitcom “Cheers” and voicing Hamm the Piggy Bank in the animated “Toy Story” movies, it was natural for Ratzenberger to lend his vocal talents to a truck in “Cars,” another Pixar film.

Speaking Feb. 23 at the 14th Annual Recruitment and Retention conference here, Ratzenberger revealed his truck was going to be a Kenworth until the head of Pixar asked what kind of truck his father, Dezso, had driven. The Hungarian immigrant had been behind the wheels of Mack Trucks all those years.

“They changed it to Mack in honor of my dad,” said Ratzenberger, who called his father his hero.

Your Fitness Regimen Could Be Killing Your Sex Life: Study : HEALTH : Tech Times

While strenuous exercise can provide a leaner, fitter physique, it could also potentially disrupt one’s sex drive, a new study warns.

A team from University of North Carolina observed that men with more intense exercise programs may have a lower libido than those who have lighter workouts.

Male Exercise And Sex Drive

This is among the first to probe the link between men’s exercise and their sex lives, as previous studies centered on women.

“Exposure to higher levels of chronic intense and greater durations of endurance training on a regular basis are significantly associated with a decreased libido scores in men,” the authors wrote, recommending doctors seeing male patients for sex-related disorders to take into account the level of the patient’s endurance training.



Android Messages will be the new default texting app Google wants you to use - The Verge

Google is making a handful of announcements related to RCS today, but the piece of news you’re most likely to notice is that the default SMS app Google offers is now called “Android Messages” instead of “Messenger.” Or rather, it will be the default RCS app. RCS, if you don’t recall, is the next-generation messaging standard supported by a group of carriers and Google. It offers multimedia messages, read receipts, and other features you’d expect from a normal chat app like WhatsApp or iMessage.

Amir Sarhangi, Head of RCS at Google, tells The Verge that the app is getting renamed because Android Messages is becoming more like Android itself: an industry effort spearheaded by Google, but with other stakeholders involved (namely: the carriers). The new name is also a signal to users that the app fully supports RCS. Users will be able to download the Android Messages app directly from the Play Store — which gives the added benefit that the app can be updated directly rather than make people wait for a software update from their manufacturer.


Trump stirs new political debates in Mexico | TheHill

President Trump's focus on Mexico as an economic and security threat to the United States has had tangible consequences on the country's economy and political system.

While Trump's effect on Mexico’s economy has been decidedly negative — JPMorgan cut its 2017 GDP growth estimate on Friday from 1.8 percent to 1.3 percent — the country has rallied around opposition to Trump and the defense of its migrants in the United States.

President Enrique Peña Nieto, whose 12 percent approval rating in January cast him as a lame duck two years before his six-year term is due to end, has taken a more combative stance to Trump's policies, hoping to bank on the American president's massive unpopularity in Mexico.

Trump administration makes first tangible step to building border wall | Fox News

President Trump’s administration on Friday made its first tangible step towards developing and implementing one of the president’s chief campaign promises: to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.

Bloomberg reported that the administration issued a preliminary request for proposals to contractors. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it plans to start awarding contracts by mid-April.

The field of candidates will be narrowed by March 20, and finalists must submit offers with their proposed costs by March 24.
