Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) April 30, 2015

The Eastwood Company has introduced nine new single stage urethane automotive paint colors and 19 new basecoat colors, to kick off the DIY auto paint season. In addition, a premium 4:1 show clear coat has been added, plus over 35 pearls, flakes, and chameleon additives. These professional-grade refinishing products allow DIY hobbyists to achieve professional results at a DIY price.

All of Eastwood’s basecoats and single stage urethane paints are 50-state compliant, in addition to its DTM (Direct to Metal) Epoxy Primers. Featuring 3:1 mix ratios for single stage urethanes and 4:1 mix ratios for basecoats, Eastwood designed its system with ease of use for the end user. “Paint is arguably the first thing most will notice about your vehicle,” said Nick Capinski, Eastwood’s Director of Product Solutions. “Eastwood’s paints are easy to mix, easy to spray, and easy on the wallet. Although they are priced for the DIY user, professional results are the end goal. There have been magazine cover cars and SEMA show cars painted with Eastwood finishes.”

Featuring over 60 different colors, including candies and flats, Eastwood has everything from OEM muscle car colors to custom metallics. For the Kustom crowd, the new pearls, flakes and chameleons provide countless custom finishes that can be achieved.

Eastwood’s new 4:1 High Solids Premium Show Clear offers a deep, beautiful gloss in an easy to spray clear. This product flows and self-levels, and is easy to color sand and buff for a true show car finish.    

Eastwood markets unique tools and supplies for repair, restoration, and modification of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Founded in 1978, Eastwood strives to develop new products to serve the home automotive hobbyist, as well as individuals and organizations focused on the restoration and preservation of automobiles and motorcycles.

Rocky quotes

Did you know Sylvester Stallone wrote the movie Rocky? He also directed and the movie was all done in twenty-eight days! There are a total of six movies and the first one came out way back in 1976.

The most famous quote from the first movie and still continued on in every single movie was “Yo Adrian!” Rocky has just gotten done fighting Apollo Creed and has lost due to a split decision. Bloody and beaten, he yells for her and she comes running down into his arms. They say how they love each other and the movie ends on a loving happy note. “Yo Adrian” is a very special thing between the two of them every time he says it. It has so much meaning behind it.

In Rocky II, “I was wonderin’ if, uh, you wouldn’t mind marryin’ me very much.” This was Rocky asking Adrian if she would marry him, of course she said yes! There romance became one of the most famous romances in modern day film history.

The last film, sadly we all miss Adrian and Rocky can’t function without here no matter how hard he tries. At the end of the movie he finally knows its okay to let go and have the strength to move on, “You know I couldn’t have done nothing without you, Yo Adrian we did it”, and touchingly he kisses her tombstone.

“No, maybe I can’t win, maybe the only thing I can do is just take everything he’s got. But to beat me, he’s gonna have to kill me, and to kill me, he’s gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me, and to do that, he’s gotta be willing to die himself and I don’t know if he’s ready to do that. I don’t know, I don’t know.” This quote came from rocky IV in 1985 where he fights the Russian Ivan Drago. He is totally an indestructible freak on steroids. Rocky was also doing the fight for his country he loved so much, the United States. Terrible things were being said about the country and him. So, Rocky definitely kicks some butt!

There were other memorable characters like Paulie and Rocky’s son, Robert, along with many fighters and colorful characters that made the movie what it was and still is to this day.

Stock Quotes

Have you ever observed the Stock dealer’s screen having market operators glued to it with anxious, anticipating glances? The screen shows rows of figures in a dynamic state, changing instantaneously. Now, to analyze these figures closely, let’s go back to the definition of “market”. A market is a place where the sellers of a product (or service) and its buyers converge. The market forces of demand and supply determine the price at which the trades are affected i.e. the price at which the sellers are willing to sell the product and the buyers are willing to buy the product.

Similarly, the Stock Market is the place where the sellers and buyers of shares of companies trade and the same forces of demand and supply determine the price of trade. The share market provides an electronic platform, unlike the normal markets where the buyers and sellers are known. The orders are placed and executed electronically through a stock exchange which gives its dealers electronic platforms to place bids to buy and sell. The stock exchange server maintains an order book for all the orders that its members place (whether buy or sell). The software determines the price of a stock based upon the demand and supply. Here is a simplistic example of how this is achieved. The stock of Company A is currently trading at $ 30.7800.

Buy orders Sell Orders

Shares Price Shares Price

600 30.800 800 30.7800

400 30.775 700 30.775

It can be seen above that the buy orders at this price (demand) is 600 shares while sell order (supply) is 800 shares. As supply is more than demand, therefore the price of the stock would fall. In this case, the next lower order is at 30.775.So the next instant price would be 30.775. It must be noted that the order book is in a dynamic state and contains all the orders of the members. This is the microscopic view of changing demand and supply and corresponding prices of the stock. This is a very fast process almost taking fraction of seconds. In the real life, it is hard to make out such interaction and supply and the “stock quote” at any instant gives the price of any stock at any given time.

The price, volume and other details comprise the Stock quotes at that instant if the market is open or closing price if the market is closed. The other accompanied details apart from price are

Volume – The total number of shares traded
Closing price – The Previous Closing price.

There are other details as well. Let’s see a typical example of stock quote of Microsoft Corporation as on 19/06/2009

Last Trade – 24.07
Trade time – 4.00pm
Close – up 0.57 (up2.43 percent)
Previous close – 23.50
Day’s Range – 23.75-24.34
52wk Range – 14.87-28.92
Volume – 115,458,922

There are many websites that also give other parameters like EPS (earning per share) P/E price earning ratios etc. These data help to make competitive analysis of stock with respect to its past performance, stock of companies engaged in similar business and with respect to the main indices of the market.

4WD Signs on as Sponsor for Willys Jeep Rally

Columbiana, OH (PRWEB) May 27, 2015

4WD, industry-leading provider of aftermarket parts and accessories for Jeeps, has signed on as a sponsor for the Willys Jeep Rally in Hueston Woods State Park, Ohio May 29-30. The rally will feature a show, swap meet and live demonstrations as it honors the celebrated Willys Jeep. The 7th annual event will also have scenic cruising on rural roads, a banquet and working demonstrations of vehicles on a farm next to the state park.

Spring is prime time for Jeep enthusiasts to gather at events to celebrate the versatile vehicle’s origins and legacy. Earlier this month, 4WD was a sponsor at the Spring Midwest Willys Jeep Reunion in Hudson, Ohio and will also be a sponsor at the upcoming Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, Pennsylvania June 12-14.

“I’m appearing at the Willys Jeep Rally being held in Hueston Woods State Park and I’ll be guest speaker at their banquet as well,” says Pat Foster, columnist at Hemmings Classic Car. In addition to his presentation, Foster will also be selling autographed copies of his latest book Jeep: America’s Greatest Vehicle. “That should be a really fun time.”

Originally manufactured from 1941-1945, Willys Jeeps aided the World War II effort by being deft yet durable all-utility vehicles. Whether pressed into service to save lives on the battlefield or used to transport gear, supplies and soldiers, Jeeps were crucial to the Allies. The Willys evolved into the “CJ” civilian Jeep and after it helped win the war it enjoyed immense popularity with civilians.

The Midwest Willys Jeep Reunion, Inc. presents the annual Willys Rally in Hueston Woods with a scenic backdrop that includes a pioneer farm park and a restored covered bridge. Miles of state park roads give attendees a chance to wheel in their vintage Willys or more contemporary Jeeps and the show field overlooks an 800-acre lake.

The Willys Jeep Rally starts Friday morning at 9 a.m. at the Hueston Woods Lodge and family activities include horseback riding, camping and renting boats at the marina.

Quotes About Hope

Quotes about Hope

If you need some hope, look for the good in others, in yourself, and in your Maker. At various times throughout life, there are setbacks and tragedies. These bad things are part of being human. The hope is what keeps us going and helps us to find happiness and joy in the suffering.

Instead of running from pain and suffering, we should embrace it. Why? It allows the soul to mourn and finally to heal properly. The whole process is somewhat complicated and different for everyone. However, there are things that can help.


Prayer can bring hope to those filled with despair. The very act of prayer helps you to go outside of yourself and focus on the positive. If you are in deep despair, you can at least pray for hope and it will come. Prayer has a keen way of focusing the mind and helping us to stop focusing on self. This act, alone, helps humans to break out of the ego or pain like state.

Doing Things

If you want more hope, it is important to keep doing things. Even the little things like keeping your car clean or going on a bike ride will infuse a lighter spirit. That’s why it is good to do little things for others that need hope. Having the little things done, in life, makes everything a little easier to do.

Quotes of Hope

It’s good to have information about how to be hopeful. Quotes are often a good source of inspiration. For example, humor enlightens the mind, lifts the spirit, and comes at will. It’s the sure fire way to live life. And, hope is something you get from God and yourself. It can’t be handed to you.

Positive Stories

It is also a good idea to tell yourself hopeful stories. Did you ever work for something important and get it? Do you feel a certain joy when helping others or when doing good? Telling yourself some positive things can also help you find hope.

Where there is light there is also truth and with truth comes hope because truth tells a wonderful story.
