Brammo Motorsports is looking ahead to its fifth year of operations and the completion of a new facility this fall. Brammo founder Craig Bramscher says the new 47,000-square-foot facility, costing about $80-$90 a square foot to build, would allow the company to hire an additional 50-75 employees within the next year. Brammo currently employs 60 workers. The company’s main product, the British-designed Ariel Atom minimalist vehicle, is known as “the motorcycle of vehicles” and costs anywhere from $40,000 to $92,000. Brammo produces about 200 of the vehicles — which can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds — per year. According to Bramscher, the company is also working on some eco-friendly vehicles and hopes to begin work on an electric car soon after the new building is complete.

The right sunglasses can protect your eyes and look cool at the same time. This being the 21st century, select shades are socially conscious, too. Portland brand Shwood uses wood and other natural materials and manufactures locally. Founded by Ann Sacks, the brand Fetch dedicates a portion of its profits to animal welfare. But whether you choose classic tortiseshell or aviator chic, please, shed the sunglasses when you walk in the door — and, of course, at night.
