when hipsters invade!

christian.hazel@4WOR.comYOU SEE THEM AT STARBUCKS. Waiting in line outside gourmet food trucks. Riding unicycles at the skate park. Shopping online retailers who will accept Bitcoin payment for V-neck tees and super-skinny pants. Frantically looking for an outlet to charge their iPhone XS Max. They’re millennial hipsters. And they’re everywhere—even in my garage.People who travel in my circles (me included) often make millennials and hipsters the butt of jokes. “What do you call a manual transmission? A millennial antitheft device.”“Why do hipsters hate rivers? They’re too mainstream.”“Who was the first hipster? Oh, you’ve probably never heard of him.” And so on.While there’s a kernel of truth in some of these, I’m finding it’s not exactly fair to paint this entire generation with the stereotyping brush of incompetence, decadence, or apathy.

2019 heavy duty ram

Editor@4WOR.comRam calls its new Heavy Duty pickups the “benchmark” for performance, capability, technology, and more. Looking over the new pickup’s stats, we can see why. Let’s start with 1,000 lb-ft of torque from the all-new 6.7L Cummins High-Output turbodiesel. Or the 35,100-pound max tow capacity and 7,680-pound payload capacity. As for the technology, a 360-degree surround-view camera with “trailer reverse guidance view” puts images of both sides of a trailer in one screen. Also available is an auxiliary exterior camera that can be positioned in and behind trailers. An available rear air suspension has driver-selectable modes for bed lowering, normal/payload, and trailer towing.Ram redesigned the Heavy Duty trucks inside and out for 2019. Attention was paid to the sheetmetal to reduce aerodynamic drag and weight; 143 pounds were shed by…
