Post Holdings, the third-largest cereal maker in the U.S. with brands including Raisin Bran and Honey Bunches of Oats, has owned PowerBar since 2014when it paid $150 million to acquire the brand and Musashi from Nestle. Both of those brands are important components of Post's active nutrition business, which reported a 4% increase in sales to $574.7 million for the latest year. But PowerBar didn't fuel that growth. The brand has faced persistent sales growth in recent years as rival energy bars report growth. In 2013, PowerBar was the second-best selling energy bar in the U.S. but has steady slipped, landing in sixth place as of 2016, according to research firm Euromonitor. PowerBar is now smaller than Abbott Laboratories' ZonePerfect, General Mills' Nature Valley and others. Market leader Cliff Bar has even managed to increase market share over that period.

Windows 10: Microsoft Edge Windows 10 includes a modern new web browser called Edge. Edge does not replace Internet Explorer, which still ships with Windows 10, but it will be the default browser. The big thing about Edge is its new rendering engine, EdgeHTML, which makes browsing much faster. Edge also supports reading lists, on-screen annotations, and extensions. Windows 10: Better Security Windows 10 features the Secure Boot security feature from Windows 8, but makes it better. Secure Boot requires that any code that runs right when Windows boots be signed by Microsoft or the hardware maker. In Windows 8 any user could bypass this feature, but in Windows 10, you can set it so the feature may not be bypassed. Windows 10: Virtual Desktops Windows 10 finally natively supports virtual desktops, so you can have one desktop, for example, for all your open browser windows, another desktop with your Office documents open, and yet another with iTunes open.

By Christina Sarich James Dyson, the CEO and Chief Engineer for the world-renown vacuum cleaner company wants to use his adapted technology to suck waste using a river barge called the Recyclone. The vacuum technology would suck plastic and petroleum-based trash from rivers and then sort it for recycling. He says that the trash currently clogging rivers in America could not only restore ecosystems, but unleash latent energy stored within all the waste. Others around the world are taking the matter of waterway trash, quite literally, into their own hands. Essentially, Dyson sees the garbage problem like an engineer or a homemaker would. If we could simply suck up all the refuse – we’d have a much cleaner living space. His barge would use the same cyclone technology in his vacuum cleaners to remove plastics and other trash (14 billion tons that are currently in our canals and river systems.

With Skoda production numbers having tripled since 2000, the only way is up for the Volkswagen Group's Czech brand Cobbled yards seem to be a thing for me, Autocar and Skoda . My first encounter with the Czech car maker came in 1993, in a sinister dark stone building where Volkswagen had set up a makeshift HQ. Just two years earlier VW had acquired a 30% stake in the privatised former-Communist manufacturer and I was on assignment to find out more about the new Favorit, which would be launched in 1994 as the Felicia. Memories of this atmospheric setting came flooding back last week when Skoda revealed the facelifted Octavia in another cobbled yard, this time in Vienna at the art museum depository, to coincide with the city’s motor show. The Octavia is Skoda’s global best seller, a position that fits its status as the spiritual successor to the Favorit as the right-size do-it-all hauler that motorises aspirational families all over the globe.
