First Toyota Mirai Owners Get A Jump On The Future
Movie magic sometimes turns into technological reality. On Tuesday, more than 300 new Toyota Mirai owners, Mirai dealers and special guests watched actors Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd bring a famous trash-into-fuel scene from “Back to the Future Part II” into the present. The occasion: a celebration to mark the U.S. arrival of Toyota’s Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle — a modern, real-life version of Doc Brown’s trash-fueled technology. See the full release to watch the video debut and to learn more about the Back to the Future Day-themed campaign.

Giving the Gift of Life: Half of Americans Say They’re Registered Organ Donors
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, over 120,000 people are currently on the waiting list to receive a lifesaving organ transplant. Just one organ donor can save up to eight lives. However, with a new name joining this list every 10 minutes and 22 people dying each day while waiting, the gap between supply and demand continues to grow as donation rates stagnate. According to a recent Harris Poll, just over half of American adults (51 percent) say they are currently registered organ donors. There remains sufficient room to increase this number, however. While a total of 44 percent of Americans say they aren’t registered donors, 23 percent state they’d consider becoming one. See the full release for more stats on organ donation.
