SenseAware, FEDEX Custom Critical and Scott Garchar

Hey neighbors!

I had the privilege of keeping track of Scott Garcher as he traveled across the United States in the Race Across America.  Scott Garchar is part of the Ohio CycleWorks Bike Team who is being sponsored by Fedex Custom critical during the RAAM (Race Across America).  Now, I personally have never heard of this race before, but I have since learned that it is one of the most grueling races in the world.  Starting in Oceanside CA and finishing in Annapolis Maryland, I was able to follow Scott Garcher's race by using SenseAware.

SenseAware is a device that can track your "package" it's entire trip.  It allows you to see exactly where the package is, but it also allows you to monitor, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and light exposure.  I found this totally amazing. This is very important when you are transporting medical supplies.  See below:


Current location—Know where your shipments are in near real-time.
􀁴􀀁 Accurate temperature—Verify the temperature of sensitive shipping
environments, and receive immediate notification if they go out of a
specified range.
􀁴􀀁 Exposure to light—Recognize if your shipments have been opened or
if their contents have been exposed to light.
􀁴􀀁 Relative humidity—Observe moisture levels inside your shipments.
􀁴􀀁 Barometric pressure—Detect changes in the levels of atmospheric
pressure that your sensitive products are exposed to.

I checked in several times and was able to see exactly where Garchar was.  You are able to visit www.senseaware.tumblr.com to see pictures and get updates on the race.


The Ohio CycleWorks Team is racing to help raise money for the Akron Children's Hospital.  Here is a little more information:

  • This charity makes for a natural fit for SenseAware® because it allows healthcare providers to monitor critical shipments, the kind that can help save the lives of the very children that Ohio CycleWorks is riding to support.
  • For more information about the Ohio CycleWorks Charities or to donate to their cause, visit their website at http://ohiocycleworkscharities.org/.



Now, I personally am partial to children's hospitals as we lost a precious little boy to cancer in our home church not long ago, and now another friends child (2 years old) is also battling cancer. If you can, help the Team help children!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
