The 2010-2016 Panamera and 2003-2010 Cayenne are being recalled

Porsche is recalling 340,000 Cayennes and Panameras worldwide due to a problem with their automatic transmissions. The recall affects 2010-2016 Panameras and 2003-2010 Cayennes. A Porsche spokesman told Reuters that the cars might roll away when parked on an incline because of a fragile part in the connection between the gear lever and transmission. About 100,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold in the U.S. The part is the gear selector cable bushing. It’s made of plastic and isn’t as durable as it needs to be. If the bushing comes loose, the transmission could show park when the car is in a different gear. Porsche is telling owners to use the parking brake whenever they park their cars until they get to a dealership and get the problem fixed.

7 new things to check out (and eat) at Summerfest 2019

This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. Summerfest might be more than 50 years old, but it still has a few tricks up its sleeve. This year, the festival has added attractions to keep fans entertained, cooled-off and well-fed.  Here is a glimpse at what’s new on water, on land and on wheels at the Summerfest grounds this year.  This year, Summerfest named the docks near the north end Summerfest Landing. Festival-goers can cool off on the waters of Lake Michigan with kayak, paddleboard and boat rides.  Last year, L.L. Bean offered paddleboard rentals in a pop-up shop, but this year it’s free (yes, free). All you need to do is sign up at L.L. Bean’s green tent. Don’t worry about having experience; instructors are standing by to help you navigate the waters. Rentals are on a first-come, first served basis and have been very popular, instructors say. The last round pulls away from the dock at 5 p.m.; on Wednesday, rentals were completely booked by early afternoon.  If you’d prefer to enjoy the lake without exerting yourself, you can take a free boat ride. Mercury...

Coal River attracts kayak anglers from near and far | News

Some clouds this evening will give way to mainly clear skies overnight. Low 67F. Winds light and variable. John McCoy/HD Media Kayak anglers’ interest in the Coal is increasing, but not as rapidly as interest from recreational kayakers like Sarah Wiley. The combination of anglers and recreational boaters can make for crowded launch ramps on fair-weather weekends. John McCoy/HD Media The Coal River just downstream from the river’s Upper Falls is an ideal venue for Marshall University bass fishing team member Chase Arkell to fish for smallmouth and spotted bass. A series of boat-launch ramps has made the river and its main tributaries a destination for kayak anglers.

Maybe you win a lot. Or maybe you just run a lot of races that give

Maybe you win a lot. Or maybe you just run a lot of races that give finisher’s medals—marathons, half marathons, novelty 5Ks. Either way, that first treasured medal eventually blooms into a few pounds of hardware weighing down your doorknob or filling up your dresser drawer. Here are some more fun ways to appreciate—or dispose of—those medals. Medals 4 Mettle takes donations of marathon, half-marathon, and triathlon medals. They replace the ribbon with their own, and give them to people, mostly children, who are enduring their own challenges with cancer, chronic illness, trauma, or other life challenges. “These medals are awarded to pay-it-forward to those who must run a much more difficult race than the medal donors’ races; a race they did not choose to run: a race where the finish line might not be known.” If you still want to see all those medals hanging up next to each other, try one of the display racks that has hooks for medals underneath a cheesy saying like “born to run.” Some also have a place to hang race bibs, if you like to save the numbers you wore during the race. This is a clever combination: hooks underneath a chalkboard. You can clip bibs to the chalkboard, and ...

Rebuilt/Retrofit Transformers Lower the Cost of Factory Upgrades

This site is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Informa PLC’s registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. When the call comes from upper management to produce more energy or increase capacity, plant managers face the challenge of upgrading the infrastructure, and upgraded power transformers often represent the biggest ticket item. Adding to the expense is the fact that such change-outs usually require completely reworking the connections to and from the transformer. When spatial constraints that require rebuilding a new enclosure or pad mount are factored in, the prospect of increasing capacity can explode into a budget-busting endeavor. In response, many plant managers have discovered the advantages of “new” retrofit transformers. These fully customized power transformers provide the benefits of increased power capacity while duplicating the form and fit of the originals. The option of a perfectly matched, plug-and-play transformer holds the potential for capacity upgrades that meet regulations, timelines, and budgets. The experience of one major util...

Kingsport Times-News: TVA offers tips to help you stay cool, save money

Temperatures are rising across the region and to help keep its customers calm, cool and collected, the Tennessee Valley Authority has readied its electric grid for the expected strain summer temperatures can put on the transmission system. TVA also offers some tips to help “beat the heat” that should work for every household, not only TVA customers. The number one suggestion is to remember summer energy use is usually highest — and rates are at their most costly — between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., during the warmest part of the day and when people arrive home from work. • Keep things clean when the sun goes down. Refrain from running your dishwasher, clothes washer or dryer during the heat of the day. • Filter it out. Make sure your air conditioner filter is clean — a dirty filter means the air won’t get as cool and the unit uses more power than necessary. • Mom was right … shut those doors! Keep the cool air in by minimizing the amount of times you open and shut your main doors leading outside. Do the same with the refrigerator door. • Do a fan dance. Use ceiling and floor fans to keep air moving in your home — but only when you’re in the room.  • Unplug to power down. Unplug an...

Cooking with herbs is the difference between so-so and a culinary masterpiece. But dried herbs are

Cooking with herbs is the difference between so-so and a culinary masterpiece. But dried herbs are sometimes bland, and those bunches of fresh herbs at the grocery store get pricey. Why not grow your own year-round? Here’s what you need to know to create an indoor herb garden that’ll last through the winter. Not every herb likes it indoors. Some, such as dill and fennel, get humongous, so they’re not good options. Others like marjoram are more particular and don’t like a drafty windowsill. Basil can be tough, too, as it really needs temperatures in the 70s and gets droopy after a cool night or two. But sometimes the only way you’ll know what will work in your house is to give it a go! If you can beat the first frost in cold climates, dig up a little clump of thyme or chives to bring indoors. For other herbs such as mint, root a cutting in water, then plant. Many others, such as basil and parsley, can be started from seed. Herbs like light, and lots of it! This is the biggest challenge for growing herbs indoors, as most require six hours of bright light. Choose a windowsill that faces south or southwest, which will get the brightest and most hours of sunlight per day. East-...
