Old Milwaukee Beer Is Taking It Old School

Just in time for the warmer weather Old Milwaukee is releasing a new look to their cans to enjoy the spring and summer months. Old Milwaukee, a beer brewed right since 1849 (over 160 years), unveiled a new packaging design that pays homage to America’s pin-up heritage. The first pin-up in the series, ‘Stars and Stripes,’ is modeled after iconic female wartime heroes harkening back to WWII. The next pin-up design in the series, which gives a nod to the hunting and outdoor traditions, will launch in September 2017 with a new design to follow every four months.

The new design hits shelves at select retailers nationwide this month. While the outside has changed, the tried and true liquid inside remains the same. Old Mil fans can expect the same awarding winning recipe that uses traditional brewing processes and a complex variety of hops and 6-row blend malt, creating a full-bodied, carefully balanced beer.

Still Hot After 20 Years

One of the best films from back in the day that had action, thrills and great dialogue was the movie Heat. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro were phenomenal in the film.  Now you can see these two iconic actors in the Director’s Definitive Edition that comes out May 9th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In the wake of a precision heist of an armored van, the crew of a fierce, professional thief (De Niro) and an obsessively driven LAPD detective (Pacino) are locked in deadly opposition as they vector towards each other in Mann’s dazzling, twilight vision of Los Angeles. As the stakes escalate and their lives begin to unravel, the crew initiates its most dangerous and complex heist.

Taking inspiration from the late Chicago police detective Charlie Adamson – who killed the actual Neil McCauley in a shootout in 1963 – HEAT was the culmination of years of research by Mann resulting in its depth and range of characters and choreography of action. With its epic scale and stunning performances from Pacino, De Niro, Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Ashley Judd, Amy Brenneman, Diane Venora, Natalie Portman and Jon Voight, HEAT is as incendiary as it was 20 years ago.

Some of the Blu-ray special features include a new Academy Panel reuniting Mann, Pacino and De Niro and moderated by Christopher Nolan. There is the Toronto International Film Festival Q&A with Mann and whole lot more.

Check Out The All New Head-Up Display From Lincoln

Lincoln Motor Company has just released some fantastic news. There will be an all-new Head-Up Display this spring on the Lincoln Continental, designed to help drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

They are the first to use Digital Light Projection technology – DLP – Lincoln’s new system leapfrogs the competition with its size and brightness – the brightest display and biggest display size in its class. The Head-Up Display is customizable, allowing the client to choose what features they see, providing a human, warm and personal experience that Lincoln client’s desire.

“We’ll be using a DLP chip from Texas Instruments, while many other automakers use a different technology that doesn’t get quite as bright,” said Anthony King, product design engineer for The Lincoln Motor Company. “That’s what sets us apart.”

An added benefit: The infrared reflective coating on the glass that reflects the display deflects heat, helping the car stay cool in warmer climates. The system is designed to help drivers keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel; everything in the Head-Up Display controlled by the steering wheel.

Customizable so clients can choose what they want to see displayed, the system allows the driver to set the brightness they desire, as well as the position – which can be adjusted up and down, side to side, and rotated to achieve the ideal viewing position for each driver.

However clients want to use the Head-Up Display, they can choose the information to view – from showing every available component to paring it down, or even turning it off completely. Only the phone and navigation system information automatically will appear in the display when in use. Features such as outside temperature, Lane-Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, distance to empty and the time can be turned on or off.

“It’s unique, and we’ve chosen that because our research has shown that a non-redundant display actually makes it more compelling to clients,” said King. “It’s simple, and defines what quiet luxury really means.”
