Ladies, the DC Auto Show isn’t about glamour as much as it’s about policy making and the future of the car industry. In honor of Earth Month, we've collected information from the DC auto show to share more about the greening of automotive.
Front page: For the 2014 Washington Auto Show, Nissan rented an Amtrak train car and ferried a group of journalists from Penn Station, NYC to Washington, D.C. Since the show took place during an epic East Coast snowstorm, the train was both a pleasant and efficient way to arrive. And it’s consistent with Nissan’s push into the future of environmental changes. That objective encompasses Nissan’s NV200 vehicles (the taxicab of the future and NYC’s official taxicab) as well as some new initiatives they are rolling out with FedEx.

Celebrities stopped by the McDonald’s and Corvette Stingray Desert Pool Party at the Bootsy Bellows Estate on April 12, 2014 to celebrate the launch of McDonald’s Bacon Clubhouse Burger and the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Celebrities sampled the new Bacon Clubhouse Burger, rode shotgun for the Stingray Experience, and beat the heat pool-side in VIP cabanas.
Many famous faces who attended the party included one of my favorite Glee stars Dianna Agron who was spotted out with her new man Thomas Cocquere and Leonardo DiCaprio who smoked electronic cigarettes and chowed down on a Bacon Clubhouse Burger and fries in his private cabana.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" premiered in Los Angeles on March 13, 2014. It was released internationally on March 26, 2014, and in North America on April 4, 2014. According to ABC news, its record-breaking $92 million weekend debut has earned the film entry to a very exclusive club: movie sequels that outdid their originals.
Not only did "Winter Soldier" outperform "Captain America: The First Avenger," which earned $65 million domestically in its first three days out, but the sequel scored the biggest April opening of all time, according to the L.A. Times, earning a worldwide total to date of $303.3 million.

“You’ll be known by the friends you choose, so pick wisely,” my mother used to say, and Audi is saying the same thing today as the German automaker releases its all-new 2015 A3 compact sports sedan. To make its point, the manufacturer took a cadre of autowriters to Silicon Valley, the leading hub for high-tech innovation and development, to draw attention to Audi’s in-car interface of connectivity and information management systems in the premium compact segment in America.

Unfortunately, car accidents can happen to anyone now and then. This is why motorists are required to have a valid insurance policy so that if someone else is at fault, their insurance covers claims made for injuries suffered and/ or for any damage incurred.
Injuries resulting from a motor accident are often serious and can sometimes be debilitating, and one will usually make a claim both for economic and non-economic damages, such as damage to a car, loss of income due to time needed to recover from injuries, and pain and suffering.
