    Such demonstrations are very convincing for the public, and some people will talk about the success of a particular model. I advised my friend about Subaru and he immediately bought one. Now, if he had a comparison study, perhaps he would have gone for a Buick. But when I watch this video I am frustrated there is no useful caption obvious to me to tell us the speed of the car. I have trouble guessing, and I shouldn't have to. The crash dummy benefits for the air bags, no obvious broken neck. I like that. But we can see how his head probably makes a touchdown anyway at the goalpost. I wonder if the airbag can be mounted above, expand downward, and be shaped to wrap in front of the roof support. The speed of the air bag appears entirely workable. Maybe the support can house an airbag. Nice demonstration but put a big caption there for a few seconds and give the impact speed.

Why the Fleet Manager Should be the Gatekeeper to Procurement

By Mike Antich
The strategic procurement process typically involves a multifunctional sourcing team. This cross-functional team often designates a “gatekeeper” responsible for controlling the flow of information to the group. When selecting a fleet supplier, I strongly believe the fleet manager needs to be the gatekeeper. Here are the arguments supporting this assertion.
