With Christmas Just Around the Corner, Now is the Time to Get the Kids’ Gifts Sorted


CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand – November 4, 2022 – (

Juggling a long list of preparations, gift shopping and the kids being home on school holidays can be particularly stressful for parents over the Christmas period. New Zealand’s premium trampoline online supplier, SpaceJump recommends parents beat the crowds to ensure they don’t miss out on the special gifts the kids really want.

Rather than purchasing lots of smaller gifts for the family, a combined gift for everyone is a great idea for families with more than one child. A trampoline is always a winner with kids at Christmas and as an added bonus, a trampoline encourages the whole family to spend time together outside. A combined gift also takes the pressure off thinking about what to get each child too.

Offering a range of high quality, safety focused trampolines at affordable prices, SpaceJump explains that typically there is a rush in the few weeks prior to Christmas as many people leave their gift shopping to the last minute. Purchasing big ticket items early will help families avoid the stress of worrying whether there will be stock or the order can be delivered on time. Experts say it’s a good idea to sign up to receive email offers and other promotional material from various companies throughout the year to be the first to know about special offers, which can offer families big savings.

When a large item, such as a trampoline is the hero gift for the kids at Christmas, parents also need to factor in time to assemble the product. SpaceJump provides detailed assembly instructions for customers to make the set up easier and recommends a minimum of two people for the assembly.

On a mission to inspire active outdoor play for kids, the SpaceJump team are experts in the industry and are committed to providing the safest products. Striking the perfect balance of safety and fun without compromising on gravity-defying bounce, shop for the best trampoline NZ wide online at SpaceJump today to ensure no family member is disappointed on Christmas Day.

Sparr Heights Estates Receives Company’s First-Ever Electric Bus

Sparr Heights Estates Receives Company’s First-Ever Electric Bus

VANCOUVER, Wash. – November 3, 2022 – (

Sparr Heights Estates, a Sinceri Senior Living Community based in Montrose, California, received the company’s first-ever electric bus on Friday, Oct. 14. The delivery of the bus included a ribbon cutting and celebration amongst the staff and residents, who were able to give the vehicle a test ride. 

The electric bus is a large feat for the community as they move toward cleaner and more efficient energy. Electric vehicles emit fewer greenhouse gasses and air pollutants and contribute positively to local air quality.

The bus is a 2022 Ford E-Transit, which offers exclusive features, including a fully electric engine, smart technology, and an average range of 126 miles per trip. This all-electric vehicle will allow the community to charge it on-site, reduce the costs of traveling operations, and decrease their CO2 emissions significantly. 

In addition, there will be an estimated 40% lower cost versus comparable buses that operate using gasoline. It also requires less maintenance, fewer moving parts, and eliminates the need for oil changes. The bus charges within 8-11 hours, which will allow Sparr Heights Estates to charge it overnight and be ready for traveling activities every day. 

Rachel Rudiger, Sinceri’s V.P. of Environmental Operations, stated, “Sinceri Senior Living is plugging into the future—and the future is electric. In addition to the environmental benefits of our first zero-emissions community van at Sparr Heights Estates, going electric will reduce the ongoing maintenance and preventative care substantially.”

The electric bus is the first step in taking part in California’s ambitious goals on climate change, petroleum reduction, adoption of zero-emission vehicles, and renewable fuels. California’s Clean Transportation Program, which was established in 2007, then extended to 2024, plays a vital role in supporting the state’s sustainable, long-term, economic development. Sparr Heights Estates, as well as Sinceri Senior Living, are looking forward to active participation in the program and continuing to expand into sustainable energy solutions.

Ten Athletes Named to First-Ever USA Blind Soccer Men’s National Team

Ten Athletes Named to First-Ever USA Blind Soccer Men’s National TeamThe roster includes eight athletes with visual impairments and two sighted goalkeepers.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – November 3, 2022 – (

The U.S. Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) today announced the 10 athletes chosen for the first-ever USA Blind Soccer Men’s National Team that will begin international competition in 2023, the first step on the journey to competing at the Los Angeles 2028 Paralympic Games. The team was selected after a four-day selection camp held Oct. 27-30 in Chula Vista, Calif. The roster features eight athletes with visual impairments along with two sighted goalkeepers.

The sport of blind soccer has been part of the Paralympic Games since 2004, but the U.S. has never fielded a team. That will all change in 2028 when Los Angeles plays host to the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the U.S. will receive an automatic entry into the blind soccer competition as the host country.

“In the next six years, the world’s two biggest sporting events will happen on American soil,” said USABA CEO Molly Quinn. “In 2026, the FIFA World Cup will be played throughout the U.S. for the first time in three decades. In 2028, the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place in Los Angeles. It will mark the first time that L.A. has played host to the Paralympic Games.”

The eight athletes with visual impairments named to the team are Noah Beckman (Columbus, Ohio), Cody Kirchner (Columbia, S.C.), Ahmed Shareef (Staten Island, N.Y.), Ricardo Castaneda (Fort Worth, Texas), Kevin Brown (Falls Church, Va.), Antoine Craig (Richmond, Va.), David Brown (Chula Vista, Calif.) and Alvaro Mora Arellano (Phoenix, Ariz.). The two sighted goalkeepers selected are Brandt Herron (Palm Coast, Fla.) and Kyle Knott (Brevard, N.C.).

“We are so excited to name the first ever USA Blind Soccer Men’s National Team,” said Head Coach Katie Smith. “It was incredible to see the growth of the athletes at this first national selection camp. It is truly incredible being a part of this revolutionary team and to have another Paralympic sport for blind athletes all over the country to aspire toward. I look forward to seeing how this National Team progresses toward our goal of the 2028 Paralympics.”

Alternates for the USA Blind Soccer Men’s National Team are John Marquez (Fort Worth, Texas) and Charles Catherine (Brooklyn, N.Y.). The team will begin competing in international friendlies in 2023.
