Cremation Getting More Popular In The US

The funeral industry in the US is now embracing cremation, with cremation urns accessories and fees becoming more lucrative as the country turns to the practice as their choice for the duly departed, due to a number of reasons, including space.

Back in 2016, the cremation rate in the US went up over the 50% mark for the first time, according to data from the National Funeral Directors Association. They have also forecasted that it’ll be the disposition of choice for 63.8% of Americans, and by 2035, it’s expected to go up to 78.8%.

Executive Director George Kelder, New Jersey State Funeral Directors Association, finds its interesting that it took nearly a whole century after the US’s first cremation back in 1876 to reach 5%, in 1972, and, from that point onward, the number of people choosing cremation in the US has grown at an exponential rate, with funeral industry and their cremation urns accessories changing to meet demand.

The Western states in the US lead cremation rates, at over 70%, average. Conservative Catholic New Jersey, meanwhile, lags behind the country’s average at 48.5% cremation rate, but has been quickly catching up in recent years. According to the NJ NFDA, the rate will go up to around 64.4% in 2030.

Kelder says that the cheaper costs of cremation compared to traditional burials is a key factor, with the average NJ funeral costing $4,741, including the grave, burial vault, cemetery fee and opening and closing the grave, with the coffin adding about $10,000 to that cost.

A cremation, meanwhile, has an average fee of $306, with the urn about $200, with the niche’s total costs averaging at about $2,000.

Kelder says that New Jersey puts a lot of stock of real estate, with the burial costs going up alongside real estate prices. More and more people are seeing cremation as a cheaper alternative, aided by weakening traditionalism and conservatism.

Executive Director of the New Jersey Cemetery Association, Judy Welshons, says that people are now more transient, shown by the days of weeklong funeral services with large gatherings having passed now. People, she says, are now less attached to their places of origins, communities and religions.


Elon Musk Hinting At Vegan Interiors For Tesla Models

The world’s been moving to embrace green technology, with people now more conscious of the environment as a whole. From building materials, foodstuffs to car parts and Car Seat Covers, people are now looking for more environmentally friendly materials and technology. For this reason, the Tesla automotive brand has become popular, with the electric vehicles selling across the world.

And now, more ‘vegan’ drivers might have reason to embrace the brand further, as, during the 2018 annual shareholder meeting,  CEO Elon Musk stated that the brand’s team is currently working on veganizing the Car Seat Covers and interiors, and assured the attendees to the event that the upcoming Tesla Model Y will not have any leather in it.

The discussion regarding the Tesla brands’ interiors was started by a representative from PETA, Dr. Katherine van Ekert, who inquired to Musk as to whether or not Tesla still used leather in manufacturing its automobiles. She then expressed that animal welfare group is pleased that auto manufacturer introduced non-leather options for its seats, but added that PETA would like to see the automobile company to embrace a fully vegan model, forgoing using leather from the steering wheel.

Musk stated that the company is still using leather for its Model 3, S and X vehicles, as well as the steering wheel trims, though he assured the audience that the company is working on finding suitable and reliable cruelty-free alternatives. He says that the delay towards creating a completely vegan car stems from the company’s exceptionally high standards, with the CEO claiming that he would not introduce a vegan textile unless it’s proven to be just as reliable as the current materials, if not more so

Tesla’s CEO pointed out that ‘off-menu’ options were available for customers looking to personalize themselves a ‘fully vegan car’. Dr. Ekert, however, continued to probe the businessman, pointing towards other luxury car brands, like Ferrari, who have already embrace the use of synthetic materials in their vehicles.

In response, Musk presented a teaser for the upcoming Model Y, which says that the new Tesla model will not have leather in it, including its steering wheel, ending with the question of whether or not the Model Y will even have a steering wheel.

Nova Scotia Business Firing Back Against Trump

The recent issues brought about by President Trump’s trade maneuvers have been felt by all of Canada, with currency exchange firms like Knightsbridge FX, lowering their expectations for the loonie, while businesses are bracing themselves for the effects.

One local business in Nova Scotia company has decided to make a stand; Atlantic Photo Supply. The company won’t be offering currency exchange on the USD anymore, thanks to Trump’s recent tariffs on imports.Owner Allen Sutherland says that the trade spat will be felt by his company, thanks to the fact that some of his wares can only be acquired in the US.

Outside of its Dartmouth store stands a sign that says “Forget Trump, Shop Canadian”. Sutherland says that he wants the sign to encourage Canadians to shop Canadians and use the loonie as much as they can. According to him, if people shop Canadian, they don’t have to worry so much about what’s going on with the US.

Back in March, Trump put up a 25% tariff on steel imports, alongside a 10% tariff on aluminum imports. As a result, Canada and its many currency exchange firms like Knightsbridge FX, have been closely monitoring the developments happening in the US, thanks to the fact that their neighbor down south is one of the top sellers of steel and aluminum to the world’s largest economy. Back in 2017, the US imported a whopping 26.9 million tonnes of steel, with 16% coming from Canada.

Sutherland believes that buying Canadian is possible, despite all the difficulties associated with it, thanks to the fact that international trade is heavily integrated. He admits that it will be tough, but if people are considering how to spend, they could consider Canadian first.

He’s gotten some flak for the policy, and he’s uncertain whether or not the sign will have an impact on the business itself, but maybe it can encourage consumers. He’s not expecting a local movement like his would alter the US’s direction, but he hopes that Canada might look to it. He says it’s not about party politics, it’s about supporting the Canadian economy and its businesses.

Intel’s New Z390 May Be Scrapped

Tech titan Intel, known for their computer motherboard in Thailand and across the world, recently confirmed the existence of their latest chip range; the Z390. However, new reports say that the company may be looking to just forego the product range and just rename the current Z370 chipset to take its place.

Built on the 14nm process node, the Z390 chipset was, reportedly, going to offer native USB 3.1 gen 2 support, as well as built-in support for an as-of-yet unreleased eight-core Coffee Lake CPU. The new chipset would’ve signified the move to 14nm transistor tech, which would’ve complete a 14nm lineup for the Coffee Lake motherboards, which also covers the SKUs ranges for enthusiasts. Currently, the Z370 chipset is the flagship chipset, thanks to its earlier release date, though it still runs on the 22nm process node, much like its predecessor, the Z270.

The rumour comes from Chinese manufacturing company Benchlife, which handles computer motherboard in Thailand and across the world, which was informed of the change. The source of the info has not been confirmed, which leaves these rumours to verified. Though, the Intel ‘Z390 Chipset’ webpage, the one that confirmed the product range, has also been shut down.

Notably, prior to these rumours, the H310 chipset was also scrapped because Intel’s 14nm fab being overcrowded. Intel’s 14nm process is the one utilized H310, H370, B360 and Q370 motherboards, whilst Z370 still has the 22nm. The 14nm node is very much in high demand, which means that the company’s 14nm fabs will be running at full capacity.

The Z390 was expected to show in the Taipei Computex tech show, but it was a no-show. Industry expectations are saying that the Z390 will be launched, in one iteration or another, before the end of September 2018, which is about the expected release of the Intel Coffee Lake eight-core CPU.

The Z390 wasn’t expected to bring new developments compared to the prior Z370 stand-in, with the native USB 3.1 gen 2 support was the key feature. This tech wasn’t too big for Intel’s gamer customers, as they have access to that functionality thanks to third-party ASMedia controllers.
