Myth Confirmed! Discovery Center of Idaho to host MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition from October 21, 2017 – January 21, 2018

BOISE, IDAHO – MythBusters, the Discovery Channel’s Emmy® nominated TV series first launched in 2003, is coming to life at the Discovery Center of Idaho with MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition. The original TV series inspired a generation to inquire, interact and get involved with science using experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions, or legends. MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition will provide the community an opportunity to do the same.

Co-hosts Adam Savage and Jaime Hyneman were heavily involved throughout the development of the exhibition to ensure guests experience a true mythbusting encounter. "It's exciting to see fans take on some of our favorite experiments from the show while drawing their own conclusions and data," said Savage. "Although they are tackling the same myths and questions, each guest can have a unique experience within the exhibit."

Guests of the Discovery Center will learn about myths, MythBusters the series, and what experimenting is all about by participating in a series of fun, hands-on experiences. Experiments cover topics such as flight, friction, gravity, speed, and combustion. The exhibition showcases:

·         Blueprint Room – Based on the real-life operations room of the MythBusters’  iconic set, this room acts as an introduction to mythbusting and is filled with gadgets, props, video and, of course, blueprints used by the hosts to explore myths on the show.

·         Workshop – This is the place where guests turn into investigators and use real science to test myths. Guests discover whether they get more wet running versus walking in the rain and find out if toast really does always land buttered-side down.

Discovery Center’s Educator, Robert Klusaw, says, ‘We are excited to host this exhibition because it introduces kids and families to the Scientific Method while exploring and testing your favorite myths from the show.’ The Discovery Center of Idaho is ready to throw cards, dodge bullets, and run in the rain with Idaho’s community in this exciting exhibition opening October 21st!

VIP & Media Party

On October 20th from 7pm to 9pm, the Center will host an exclusive VIP & Media Party for Discovery Center members, invited donors and local press to mingle with the people who helped develop the exhibition.

Discovery Center of Idaho

The Discovery Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 interactive science center featuring exhibits and educational programs that offer authentic, sensory experiences making science, engineering, math, and technology tangible for people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Admission Prices & Hours

By aging this beer in a wide range of barrels, the brewers know that they selected and blended the highest quality beer. Like all beers in their theiour Brewers’ Series, they expect this beer to robustly stand the test of time. If stored properly, American Sour 2016 should continue to develop its sour characteristics for years.

 

The previous releases of American Sour have been highly awarded, including medals in the North American Beer Awards, US Open Beer Championship and the esteemed Festival of Barrel Aged Beers. With this year’s version created as a blend of their base pale sour aged in oak barrels, the brewers at Grand Teton expect the our 2016 version to be equally exceptional.

 

American Sour 2016 will be released October 3, 2017 in 11.2 ounce bottles and one sixth barrel kegs.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Even Stevens Boise Reaches One Hundred Thousand Sandwiches Donated!

Just a year after opening their Boise location, Even Stevens Boise has been able to donate one hundred

thousand sandwiches to four local non-profit organizations with the buy-one-give-one model, these four

non-profits include: The Idaho Foodbank, Boise Rescue Mission, Corpus Christi House, and St. Vincent

de Paul. Samuel Grenny, Engagement Director for Even Stevens Sandwiches notes “When our team

made its first trip to Boise in late 2015 to consider it for a future home for Even Stevens we fell in love at

first site. Downtown Boise was everything we dreamed of in a community partner – a progressive culinary

scene, thriving craft brewers and roasters, and an absolutely astounding commitment to local art (Freak

Alley… need I say more?). What sold us on Boise initially was that it is just so damn cool. So it comes as

no surprise to us that Even Stevens Boise just set the record for fastest location in company history to

reach 100 thousand sandwiches donated.”

“Even Stevens remains an inspiring community partner! We truly appreciate the wide scope and positive

impact Even Stevens continues to have on our community. Be assured that the essential and high quality

food supplies you provide are being put to good use and meet the foundational needs of our hungry and

homeless guests on a daily basis. Thank you for your commitment to quality and community!” – Jason

Billester, Boise Rescue Mission

What we do each day depends on our community, “we are grateful. We are speechless. We cannot do

what we do without our customers – or rather, our contributors – and we are overwhelmed by the number

of Boiseans who helped make this possible. We literally cannot wait to see what the future holds.”-

Grenny

Even Stevens Boise will celebrate hitting this milestone on May 1st by handing out commemorative

T-shirts, dancing to beats from a DJ, and engaging guests in conversation about the amazing non-profit

partners they work with every day.

Even Stevens, a Salt Lake City craft-casual restaurant, serves up sandwiches, salads, bites and local fair

(beer, specialty coffee, bread, bakery sweets) unique to each store’s location. By offering fresh

perspectives on nostalgic recipes, the “anti-cookie cutter” brand honors tradition while leaving an open

door for creativity.

Beyond creating a craft dining experience for guests, the brand donates a sandwich to a local non-profit

partner for every sandwich sold. Since their conception in 2014, they are now donating more than 10,000

sandwiches per month within each market. Allowing non-profit partners to save cash on feeding clients

and instead direct their resources towards life-changing programs."


Green Majority & The $100M+/year "Leak" In Idaho's Economy

Guest Post by Koby Conrad via Green Majority:

If there's something that we can all agree on, it's that Idaho is a pretty amazing state. I grew up in Idaho & have been here my whole life. I went to Hillside, Boise High, and the University of  Idaho. Over the last 4 years I've started three separate six figure companies that have provided over ~20 jobs to local Idahoans. I'm a native Idahoan who loves my state. I love my community. I love my neighbors.

The mission of Buy Idaho is pretty simple (and amazing) in my opinion. It's to keep Idahoans spending their money in Idaho.

I know how important our local economy is, because as a small business owner my companies depend on the local economy. If people weren't spending their money locally, myself and many other business owners would simply go out of business. We wouldn't be able to continue to provide jobs for our community.

It's a funny concept. Our economy is kind of like a bathtub holding water, and there's only a certain amount of money that's in it.

If people are spending their money outside of our state, our bathtub has holes in it. Money starts to pour out, draining the resources from the people who live in Idaho.

And this concept of buying locally is why I want to talk to you about Cannabis. It's the year 2017. Idaho is an island of prohibition surrounded by states that have legalized Cannabis. This may not seem terribly important, especially if you do not consume Cannabis yourself.

But I beg you to consider a very, very important fact. Idahoans are driving over the border to buy legal Cannabis. It's not just "a few" people who are doing this. Idaho is spending over $100 MILLION dollars every single year on legal Cannabis - in Oregon and Washington.

Over the next 10 years, there is going to be over $1 BILLION dollars that leaves our economy from Idaho Cannabis enthusiasts spending their money outside of our great state. And this is going to have a real, devastating effect on our economy.

Our bathtub isn't just leaking. The money is gushing out of our state.

Now whether you think consuming Cannabis is "right" or "wrong" I beg you to consider a second fact. Idaho has already legalized medical meth & heroin. You can literally be prescribed these drugs from a doctor. The difference is that when you legalize a substance medically, you start regulating the industry.

We need to regulate Medical Cannabis within Idaho. We can't let drug dealers & criminals be the people who decide whether or not Cannabis ends up in the hands of our youth. We can't let our economy collapse because we are the only state who is unwilling to regulate the industry.

Medical legalization does not mean as a society we are "accepting" drug abuse. Addiction is bad, it doesn't matter if it's Cannabis, alcohol, heroin, or meth. Medical legalization simply means regulation. It means taxation. It means keeping our money in Idaho.

That is why I started Green Majority. We are campaigning to legalize Medical Cannabis so we can have a real, honest, discussion about addiction, and so we can keep over $100M+/year from leaking out of the Idaho economy.

Over the next 10 years, we can keep over a billion dollars in Idaho's economy through legalization, regulation, and taxation.

It's time to plug the leaks in our bathtub. To learn more visit Magazine.GreenMajority.com.

Idaho Day was celebrated by numerous state agencies in several locations across the state to provide all Idahoans an opportunity to come together to celebrate our past. All Idahoans have a chance to share their “beautiful Idaho” with hashtags #myidaho, #beautifulidaho, and #idablue. For more information, contact Michelle Wallace at (208) 891-7617.

UCLEAR Digital

Newest Addition to Amp Series Completes Popular Line of Helmet Audio Systems

Boise, Idaho, October 31, 2016 – UCLEAR Digital has developed a new, simple to use Bluetooth helmet communications and audio system for powersports enthusiasts. The AMP Go comes complete with high-fidelity audio, exclusive concealed microphones, smartphone software delivery, and four-rider intercom in a versatile, compact package. This entry level helmet communication system pairs full-duplex intercom with advanced Bluetooth capability at an affordable price everyone can enjoy.

"The helmet communications market is growing, but we see affordability as an opportunity for more and more riders to enjoy conversation and music on the move,” says Rem Fox, COO of UCLEAR. “We brought AMP Go to market to make helmet communications broader in appeal for rider groups, families, and individual music fans. We also wanted to give dealers the chance to grow sales by offering a cost effective communication solution that could be paired with helmet sales."

UCLEAR’s exclusive noise-cancelling ABF technology eliminates virtually all background noise, while patented DSP algorithms triangulate the voice’s “sweet spot” to produce outstanding voice clarity for phone calls and intercom conversations.

The UCLEAR Digital AMP Go is built on the foundation of the popular Bluetooth® AMP Series. Many of the popular features from the AMP premium series have been integrated into AMP Go, including Bluetooth® 4.2 connectivity, ClearLink mobile app, and enhanced audio. The AMP Go enables a rider to enjoy investment protection with a range of available upgrade accessories. The AMP Go is simply the most feature rich entry level product available.
