Sweet Therapy: Chocolate May Help Prevent Irregular Heartbeat

Sweet Therapy: Chocolate May Help Prevent Irregular HeartbeatEating chocolate has been linked with a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, and now a new study from Denmark suggests that regular consumption of the treat may help to prevent the development of atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat. Researchers found that adults in the study who ate chocolate at least once a month — or more frequently than that — had rates of atrial fibrillation that were 10 to 20 percent lower than those who ate chocolate less than once a month, according to the findings published today (May 23) in the journal Heart. Atrial fibrillation is a condition in which the heart’s two upper chambers, known as the atria, do not beat at the same pace as the heart’s two lower chambers, resulting in an irregular heartbeat.

GM sued over excess emissions in Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel

GM sued over excess emissions in Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra Duramax DieselToday’s auto news headlines read like a warped version of Oprah Winfrey’s infamous car giveaway: “You’re getting sued for excess diesel emissions! And you’re getting sued for excess diesel emissions! Everyone’s getting sued for excess diesel emissions!” We say that because General Motors is now being sued for excess diesel emissions. 
Fenner et al v General Motors LLC et al The suit filed in Detroit’s federal court yesterday alleges that GM illegally outfitted 705,000 pickups with defeat devices similar to those deployed by Volkswagen in 11 million cars worldwide, including 565,000 registered in the U.S. The suit covers 2011-2016 models of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel. Unlike the lawsuit filed earlier this week against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, this one comes from consumers, not the U.S. Department of Justice. It alleges that GM employed at least three defeat devices that allowed trucks to emit up to five times the legal limit of pollutants while on the road but to keep emissions within legal limits during regulatory tests. 
Fenner et al v General Motors LLC et al alleges that GM broke a number of racketeering and consumer protection laws. Plaintiffs seek a wide range of compensation, including payouts for lost resale value and buybacks of their vehicles. They’re also seeking punitive damages against the automaker. Interestingly, the suit also names German supplier Bosch as a defendant. If the case goes to trial, that could be significant, since Bosch was very closely linked to the Volkswagen scandal. If you follow car news, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that plaintiffs in the GM case are represented in part by Hagens Berman law firm, which has been a key player in the Dieselgate settlement and many other auto-related suits. GM has issued a brief statement about the lawsuit that reads, in full:
“These claims are baseless and we will vigorously defend ourselves. The Duramax Diesel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra comply with all U.S. EPA and CARB emissions regulations.” It’s worth noting that this is one of at least two cases being brought by consumers against GM over its diesel vehicles–the other involving emissions in the Chevrolet Cruze diesel.
Our take Who will prevail? We can’t say because, much to some of our mothers’ chagrin, we’re not lawyers. However, we do know that the case puts GM in an awkward position. If the case goes to trial, it might prove GM’s innocence, but GM’s name would remain in the headlines for months and potentially years. Being associated with a high-profile case related to diesel emissions fraud at this time in history wouldn’t do much for GM’s diesel sales. That’s a real problem, as GM appears to have banked on cornering the diesel market as other automakers retreat. On the other hand, settling this case (and the one involving the Cruze for that matter) out of court wouldn’t do anything to exonerate GM. However, in terms of publicity, it might be for the best. Either way, shareholders will want GM to put the case to rest as soon as possible: stock prices took a plunge yesterday after the lawsuit was filed, though some of that value could be regained in trading today.

The Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron bromance is in full bloom, and we are swooning

The Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron bromance is in full bloom, and we are swooningSpring is here and we’re happy to report that a hot new bromance is in full bloom. The newly appointed president of France, Emmanuel Macron, is hitting it off with everyone’s favorite Canadian heartthrob, Prime Minister Justin Truedeau, and the world may not be ready for this. SEE ALSO: People are hilariously confusing Emmanuel Macron for a beloved French cookie Footage of the two leaders meeting at the G7 summit in Sicily, Italy found its way to our hearts on Friday. In the video, Trudeau, 45, and Macron, 39, take a long bromantic stroll through beautiful, lush, flower-filled shrubbery. They walked along stone paths side-by-side, chatting about the challenges faced by our generation in French.
Macron even picked a freaking flower. After Macron defeated President Trump during their highly-anticipated handshake battle at their Thursday meeting, it seemed as though the internet’s love for him couldn’t possibly grow any stronger. But then Macron graced us with this video. Twitter users were immediately smitten by the dreamy political duo and readily hopped onboard this bromance train.
