Navigation App Offers Instant Truck Routes for Transport Exchange Drivers

The most recent update for a cloud based free truck navigation app, developed in Boston, Massachussetts, adds a variety of helpful features to the existing app, improving the efficiency and safety of truck drivers such as those provided by the Transport Exchange group.

The app’s server allows truck drivers to quickly find routes to places such as truck stops and other truck specific locations, as well as gather information about whether they provide services such as free wi-fi, bathrooms and repair services. The Massachussetts servers instantly calculate routes for anywhere, using the GPS built into most smartphones for navigation, with any route downloadable in a matter of seconds.

The app works by constructing a database on the servers, consisting of both permanent and temporay information about locations and available routes for truck drivers. This information is updated daily, incorporating feedback from the drivers themselves from experiences of their journey. The app even goes as far as taking into account the truck restrictions, asking users of the software to input their truck’s height and weight for calculation. This way, the software can help truck drivers avoid ticket costs whilst providing additional safety. The software has also been equipped with visual and voice capture so the driver can use the app’s features completely hands free whilst on the road.

The app requires no form of activation in terms of database download: all the information is instantly available the moment the software is activated, and even the longest of routes can be calculated in seconds, greatly improving the efficiency of any truck driver’s journey. Once the maps are opened on the app, the data is instantly cached in order to conserve data usage, reducing data usage costs for the driver if they are on a paid contract with their service provider. Some truck drivers have named the product as the most advanced and accurate smartphone solution for truck GPS navigation, and it seems to be the perfect complement to the services of online communities such as Transport Exchange

The Much Buzzed about Film, “The Toy Soldiers”, Rolls out On Kickstarter

The Much Buzzed about Film, “The Toy Soldiers”, Rolls out On Kickstarter | The Much Buzzed about Film, “The Toy Soldiers”, Rolls out On Kickstarter | Scoop.it
Robert Key's insight:

Hollywood, CA: Riding Hood Motion Pictures is proud to announce that pre-production has begun on their newest picture, The Toy Soldiers, from the award winning writer and director, Erik Peter Carlson. "On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels,” says Carlson.


Even though the fictitious film takes place in the 80's, the themes are surprisingly familiar and current. One can’t help to notice parallels between the narrative and real life tragedies such as the story of Rehtaeh Parsons, the bullied Canadian teenager, or the horror of Sandy Hook Elementary. “This stuff pains me. I think about it every day,” Carlson explains.

Even with the film funded, the producers are reaching out to their massively loyal fan base for additional contributions with the crowd funding web site, Kickstarter. "Our goal is extremely modest at $6,500. This may not sound like a lot, but on a small indie film, this can make a huge difference. It will allow additional shooting days, studio rentals and on and on. I feel there will be people out there who will want to be a part of this movie because they feel as passionate about its subject matter as I do,” he says.

Contributors to the ‘The Toy Soldiers’ Kickstarter campaign will be offered some exciting rewards from signed scripts and posters to an opportunity to be in the film itself.

The film will be shot on location in southern California this summer. Some amazing Hollywood talents have already been attached to the film, including Constance Brenneman (Love and Other Drugs), Kevin Pinassi (from Carlson’s last film, Transatlantic Coffee) and an exciting, fresh talent, Megan Hensley.

Madness, Magical Thinking and Murder in the Jodi Arias Death Penalty Trial

Exposed: The Secret Life of Jodi Arias

~ Jane Velez-Mitchell (author) More about this product
List Price: $25.99
Price: $15.59
You Save: $10.40 (40%)

New York, NY: A handsome, popular motivational speaker named Travis Alexander dies a horrific, violent, cruel death and the nation watches as his killer, the beautiful and soft spoken Jodi Arias, is put on trial and convicted of his premeditated murder. That’s the bare foundation of the case that’s mesmerized America. But, there is so much more. My new book Exposed: The Secret Life of Jodi Arias is packed with never before revealed information about Jodi’s childhood, her plentiful, kinky sex life, her obsession with Travis and why she became his cold-blooded killer.

 

Through interviews with friends from childhood on, Exposed answers the question of how a young woman’s psyche gradually disintegrates, how she ultimately becomes capable of elaborately plotting and carrying out this unimaginable act. Jodi had sex with Travis and then lured him into his shower. With Travis naked, dripping wet and in a vulnerable position Jodi then stabbed him in the chest. As Travis staggered around his bathroom and dripped blood over his sink, Jodi stabbed him repeatedly in the back and, as he tried to crawl away, she slit his throat six inches across. Oh, and for good measure, she shot Travis in the face. After she murdered him Jodi drove from Arizona to Utah and had a heavy make out session with another man in Travis’ business circle.

For Exposed-The Secret Life of Jodi Arias, I spoke to those who knew Jodi as an innocent, carefree child and those who knew her in adulthood as a devious, snooping, paranoid email hacker, pathological liar, stalker and master manipulator. So what turned Jodi into this monster? One friend revealed to me a turning point moment in grade school that she feels broke Jodi. She also read me a high school letter from Jodi where the future killer reveals feelings of alienation, not fitting in. But, there’s more.

As Jodi grew up two problems dovetailed: madness and magical thinking.

Jodi Arias is definitely not insane in the legal sense. The petite waitress/wanna be professional photographer clearly knew she was doing something wrong. That’s why she kept her murder plan secret: borrowing gas cans, dying her hair and turning off her cell phone as she slithered into Mesa, Arizona and Travis’ home. After the murder, Jodi Arias tried to establish an alibi and left a cheery voicemail for the man she had just slaughtered inviting him to accompany her to a production of Othello. She attended Travis’ memorial service and hugged his friends. She lied to cops, initially insisting she wasn’t at Travis’ house. Then, when presented with time stamped photos proving she was there, she claimed two masked intruders killed Travis. Finally, after sitting in jail for two years, she suddenly admitted she killed Travis but insisted it was in self-defense. It wasn’t. She was angry he was taking another girl on vacation to Cancun.

This was a rage killing and, with every stab wound she inflicted, Jodi Arias was taking revenge against the world, a world that simply refused… to… give… her… the… life… she felt she deserved.

Exposed-The Secret Life of Jodi Arias takes the reader inside Jodi’s increasingly unhinged and dangerous mind. Jodi mistakenly thought that she could somehow manifest desired outcomes in her life just by talking and thinking about them. She applauded herself as a proponent of positive thinking but was actually hooked on the toxic habit of magical thinking where fantasies take the place of hard work. Jodi Arias consistently refused to take even the basic steps necessary to achieve her lofty dreams. Instead of methodically working towards a realistic and achievable goal, she made grandiose plans and then retreated, with a sense of entitlement, into fantasy waiting for the magic that never happened. Then, she got angry.

Jodi was also a habitual and brazen liar. She lied to police on the interrogation tapes and most observers concluded she lied under oath on the witness stand. Pathological liars are blind to the truth. For them the truth is … whatever they say it is. Lying is just another form of magical thinking.

Jodi Arias was on trial for murder from right after New Year’s Day until the springtime of this year. With the trial broadcast gavel to gavel on HLN, it felt like the whole country was in the courtroom gallery watching and listening to the lurid testimony. January, February, March, April and finally, in May, a guilty verdict.

Well, guess what. It ain’t over yet. While 12 jurors found her guilty of premeditated murder and determined that the way she slaughtered Travis was especially cruel, they could not agree on whether to put her to death. So, very soon, we will find out when Jodi will be retried on the penalty phase to decide whether she will live or die. Exposed: The Secret Life of Jodi Arias offers the definitive story. A portion of the net profits will be donated to charity. It’s a must read as you follow this saga into its final throes. We can all learn something about the dangers of magical thinking.
