     SOME OF THE MOST TALKED ABOUT SUPER BOWL COMMERCIALS

    Dodge uses the voice of the late Paul Harvey for this amazing tribute to the American Farmer.



    Budweiser Clydesdales Ad: Brotherhood
     
    Anheuser-Busch's 60-second spot featured a seven-day-old foal raised by a breeder and then handed over to Budweiser. Three years later, the breeder finds out that the Budweiser clydesdales are going to be in his area so he decides to go check them out. Fleetwood Mac's song "Landslide" plays during a montage of the breeder remembering the foal. 



    Go Daddy: Perfect Pitch

    Supermodel Bar Refaeli stars in the latest Super Bowl commercial from Go Daddy, with race car driver Danica Patrick and (chubby/geeky) actor Jesse Heiman appearing as well.

     

    Jeep: Whole Again

    Jeep bought a two-minute spot dedicated to saluting American military members. Oprah narrates the commercial and it opens with a quote from her with the text "We wait. We hope. We pray." written across the screen.

  • Think it's cold here? At least it's not North Florida!

    Posted by Bryan Scott

    Even though it's cold here, it could be worse.  Check out this video, which was posted by the administration at the University of North Florida to warn students from Southern Florida to ...dress warmly when it's cold out.  Seriously?!  They should take a field trip Up Nort to experience what COLD weather actually is!

  • Wind Chill Chart

    Posted by Nikki Montgomery

    Wind Chill Chart from Weather.com

    The Wind Chill is the temperature your body feels when the air temperature is combined with the wind speed. It is based on the rate of heat loss from exposed skin caused by the effects of wind and cold. As the speed of the wind increases, it can carry heat away from your body much more quickly, causing skin temperature to drop. The Wind Chill chart below shows the difference between actual air temperature and perceived temperature, and amount of time until frostbite occurs.

    Frostbite Times:
    5 Minutes 10 Minutes 30 Minutes
    What is Frostbite?
    Frostbite is an injury to the body caused by freezing body tissue. The most susceptible parts of the body are the extremities such as fingers, toes, ear lobes, or the tip of the nose. Symptoms include a loss of feeling in the extremity and a white or pale appearance. Medical attention is needed immediately for frostbite. The area should be slowly re-warmed.

    What is Hypothermia?
    Hypothermia is abnormally low body temperature (below 95##F). Warning signs include uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness, and apparent exhaustion. Medical attention is needed immediately. If it is not available, begin warming the body slowly.

    How should I dress during cold weather?

    • Wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing. Trapped air between the layers will insulate you. Outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded.
    • Wear a hat, because 40 percent of your body heat can be lost from your head.
    • Cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold.
    • Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves.
    • Try to stay dry and out of the wind.
