Whip Around the Track in an E-85 at LeMans Karting

September 2, 2015 9:37 am

The E-85 go karts that round the track at LeMans Karting aren't your average kiddy vehicles. They top out at speeds of 42 miles per hour. The striking speed is largely thanks to the fact that LeMans go karts aren't powered by electricity, but rather a blend of ethanol and gasoline that's made almost entirely from corn. This eco-friendly alternative to standard gasoline actually makes less of an impact on the environment than recharging an electric go kart every day—and fuels heart-pumping races at LeMans Karting.

The go kart track in Fremont invites drivers to zoom around its curves as quickly as possible during the Time Attack race. Face off against up to 12 other go karters as you zip around the track for 15 to 20 laps, attempting achieve a faster time with every round. You can also get the blood flowing with a Sprint Race, which actually pits you against other drivers, not yourself. At the end of the 15-minute race, the first kart across the finish line is crowned the winner.

How to Choose the Right Throw Pillows for Your Home’s Decor

August 26, 2015 10:13 am

Incorporating throw pillows into your bedroom or living room is a cheap and easy way to update a home’s decor, but with the overwhelming number of options, it may be intimidating to choose the perfect ones. Here are a few tips to help you choose the best throw pillows for your space.

  1. Consider the size. Are you purchasing throw pillows for a standard-sized couch or your king-sized bed? The size of the space makes a big difference when choosing the perfect pillows, so be sure to consider sizes before purchasing. Eighteen-inch square pillows are best suited for a bed or sofa, while oversized pillows of 24 inches or larger create a more lounge-style feel in a living room.
  2. Choose a color scheme. Black and white throw pillows create a mod effect, while bright shades of pink, green, or blue liven up a drab space. Even if you plan on purchasing patterned pillows, stick with one singular color scheme for a designer-worthy look.
  3. Don’t be afraid to mix and match. Get creative by mixing and matching different sizes, shapes, and patterns. If you stick to your chosen color scheme, it’s easy to pull off a more eclectic look.
  4. Add pillows in unexpected places. Toss some large, cushion-style pillows on the floor, add some in a window nook, or place one on a desk chair for a cozy feel.
