          Sony abre PlayStation VR Resort, donde se pueden probar 15 juegos de VR   
Se puede visitar hasta el domingo en el centro de Madrid.

Desde esta mañana y hasta el viernes hay en Madrid un espacio para relajarse y disfrutar. Se trata del PlayStation VR Resort, la carpa del Gran Teatro Bankia Principe Pío dentro de las instalaciones de la antigua estación Norte de tren de Madrid, junto a la actual estación de Príncipe Pío. Allí, en un entorno que recuerda a parajes exóticos y destinos tropicales se puede disfrutar de cerca de 15 experiencias de realidad virtual con PlayStation VR.

Vídeo:



Tres de estas experiencias se están desarrollando en España. Mindtaker es el nuevo trabajo del estudio vasco Relevo (Baboon!); se trata de una historia de terror. En la demo hay un gato, una mujer muerta y la necesidad de salir de la casa en la que está el jugador.


Mindtaker tiene una buena ambientación y el estudio ha tomado nota de aquellos puntos donde han tropezado los juegos anteriores de PSVR, de forma que el jugador se mueve con el stick izquierdo pero para cambiar la dirección tiene que ir dando toques al stick derecho y cada golpe gira la cámara 90ª. Esto hace que sea un control inicialmente algo difícil, pero luego demuestra que es muy eficaz para evitar mareos.

Una aventura gráfica con la ciencia como generadora de ideas y de jugabilidad


Flipi´s Tesla! Inventemos el futuro es una aventura gráfica desarrollada por Animatoon, Mediapro, 100 Balas y Sony Interactive. Surgió a iniciativa de Enrique Pérez, conocido por su personaje Flipy, quien gestó la idea del juego hace medio año. Aunque el desarrollo comenzó hace sólo mes y medio, el juego ya apunta maneras interesantes, funciona a 120 imágenes por segundo y propone averiguar lo que ha sucedido en un laboratorio llevando a cabo distintos experimentos científicos.


El juego tiene poco que ver con proyectos anteriores de Flipy relacionados con la ciencia, y aúna la divulgación con el rigor científico. De hecho, cuenta con el asesoramiento científico de Javier Santaolalla, físico del CERN, y se está desarrollando apoyado por Creations, un proyecto de innovación educativa financiado por la Comisión Europea. Está orientado a jugadores de entre 8 y 14 años, pero, dice Pérez, "le gustará a quien le guste jugar aventuras gráficas". La idea de su creador es utilizar la VR para educarse y divertirse a la vez, y tiene la intención de llevarlo a colegios o fundaciones que acerquen la ciencia a los más pequeños.

La protagonista es una científica, Bio, y el personaje de Flipy que puede servir de reclamo en el mercado español, ocupa un lugar secundario mientras el jugador va recorriendo el cuerpo humano o construye distintos aparatos en primera persona.

La tecnología de Drawfighters se adapta a la realidad virtual


El tercer juego español disponible en PSVR Resort es CoolPaintr VR, obra de Wildbits, que permite dibujar en entornos tridimensionales virtuales utilizando la misma tecnología RTSE utilizada en el juego anterior del estudio, Drawfighters, se pueden generar objetos sólidos asignando huesos a partir de simples contornos hasta conformar un esqueleto, lo que da múltiples posibilidades creativas.


También están disponibles PlayStation Worlds con una demo que lleva al jugador al fondo del mar, Dick Wild con oleadas de cocodrilos a las que hay que disparar, Waddle Home, la conocida franquicia Gran Turismo Sport (jugable en realidad virtual por primera vez en España), las naves espaciales de Mortal Blitz, el tower defense Ancient Amulator en el que juegas con un cetro o un arco, la experiencia en la sabana de Virry en la que puedes encontrarte con una hiena cariñosa, los juegos de feria de Carnival Games y dos juegos que ya hemos analizado en Vandal: Farpoint y Arizona Sunshine

Para poder probar los juegos que hay en PlayStation VR Resort hay que apuntarse en www.trypsvr.com/es-es aunque también te puedes acercar a Principe Pío directamente, aunque te tocará esperar. El acceso al teatro se realiza en grupos de 20 personas y la visita dura 30 minutos en los que cada visitante podrá vivir tres experiencias, ampliables a cuatro tras subir una foto a Twitter con el hashtag #resortPSVR. El horario de apertura es de 11 a 14 horas y de 17 a 21 horas.

          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Michael P.   
Ein Unternehmen, welches 2.800 € jährlich für eine Autoversicherung zahlt, verdient ganz offensichtlich zu einfach zu viel Geld. Unsere Fahrzeuge sind im Rahmen einer Flottenversicherung für etwa ein Viertel vollumfänglich versichert. Für den bei uns gefahrenen Tesla musste allerdings ein geringer Aufschlag gezahlt werden. Es ist einfach auszurechnen, wie viele Stunden ein Tesla an der Ladesäule hängen muss, um damit innerhalb eines Jahres 50.000 km zufahren. Zudem wird man den Zeitverlust für die erforderlichen Zwischenladungen bei weiten Strecken nicht vernachlässigen können. Ehrlicherweise muss man wohl sagen, dass ein Stromauto heute nur etwas für Leute ist, die eigentlich auch öffentliche Verkehrsmittel statt eines Autos nutzen könnten. Solange es keine Batterien in Form von schnell auswechselbarer Flüssigkeit gibt oder die Entwicklung der Akkus deutlich fortgeschritten ist, halte ich ein Stromauto für wirkliche Vielfahrer für untauglich.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Christoph Schwerdtner   
Als Unternehmer habe ich ebenfalls einen BMW 6er gegen ein Tesla Model S getauscht. Da ich meist Kunden besuche, nutze ich überwiegend Supercharger und Destination Charger, noch kostenlos. Steuern zahle ich nicht, Versicherung gibt es schon für 1200€/Jahr ohne Fahrerbeschränkung (emover). Öl brauche ich nicht, Bremsen praktisch auch nicht wg. entspr. guter Bremswirkung durch Rekuperation, Lebensdauer der Bremsen dadurch ca. 150000-200000 km. 8 Jahre Garantie auf die Batterie. In vielen Städten kann ich kostenlos parken. Aktuell die einzigen Kosten habe ich neben Versicherung nur noch in der Waschstraße. Da haben wir inzwischen in Hannover eine Flatrate. Der Fahrspass bei 900 NM ist dabei unbezahlbar. Der Autopilot erlaubt auf Autobahnen äußerst entspannt zu telefonieren oder auch Emails zu diktieren, Internet und Spotify sind kostenlos. Jeder, wirklich jeder, der mich bisher begleitet hat, hat danach jegliche Zweifel abgelegt. Spannend könnte der BMW Elektro Dreier werden, wenn die deutschen Ladesäulen nicht generell bis 44KW begrenzt wären. Bei Tesla sind es über 110KW, also mehr als das 2,5fache. Wer will unterwegs 1,5 Stunden laden, wenn er von Köln nach Berlin oder von Hamburg nach Frankfurt fährt? Im Tesla keine halbe Stunde, außerdem trifft man derzeit noch viele interessante Menschen an den Superchargern. Meine beste Autoentscheidung seit 30 Jahren.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Daniel Kraft   
Absolut korrekt! Unter den genannten, idealen Voraussetzungen sind das alles realistische Rechnungen. Seit 1. Jahr Tesla Fahrer (vorher BMW), mit Sonnenstrom von PV-Anlage im Büro oder Zuhause aufladen, nahezu keine Verschleißkosten, Einsparungen können sogar noch größer ausfallen! => Elektromobilität mit Tesla funktioniert - egal ob beruflicher Vielfahrer oder Verbraucher !
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von schosch   
Offensichtlich hat MICHAEL WILLBERG glaubwürdig echte Kosten aus seiner praktischen Erfahrung mit Tesla und S-Klasse angesetzt und nicht wie Sie, irgendwelche mehr oder weniger beliebigen Behauptungen aufgestellt. Er ist halt erfolgreicher Unternehmen und blubbert nicht ohne Not herum. Das man mit kleinerer motorischer Ausstattung einer S-Klasse andere Kosten haben kann ist nun wirklich strohigste Binse. Allein, ob ein Tesla Model S tatsächlich in die selbe Fahrzeugklasse wie S-Klasse, Audi A8 und 7er BMW und Jaguar gehört, erscheint mir allein nach dem äußeren Erscheinungsbild der Fahrzeuge grundsätzlich leicht zweifelhaft. IMHO passt der Tesla von der Größe her eher zu E-Klasse, A6 und 5erBMW. Allenfalls der extravagante Habitus des Stromers hebt ihn etwas über diese Klasse hinaus.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Michael Willberg   
Die von Ihnen als MilchmädchenRechnung bezeichneten werte kann ich gerne genauer erläutern. Es hilft, den Text ganz und genau zu lesen. Ich bezahle für meinen Ökostrom 21 Cent netto pro kWh. Für die eingespeiste Energie erhalte ich als Stromunternehmen netto 13 Cent. Differenz 8 Cent. Im Laufe der Jahre habe ich im Mittel etwa 70 % der Jahresfahrleistung zu Hause gekaden. Den Rest kostenfrei an Superchargern und Destination Chargern. Ergibt als Mittelwert 5,6 Cent. Aufgerundet!!! Sechs Cent. Das Märchen von der Batterie können Sie sich sparen. 8 Jahre Garantie ohne km-Begrenzung sagen alles. Und ich werde keinen Diesel mit dem Tesla vergleichen. Aber gehen sie mal ins Archiv der Auto Bild. Da steht eine Aussage eines anderen Unternehmers, der den Tesla gegen den Audi S7 rechnet. Fazit: beim Tesla tausende Euro gespart Und von dem Fahrgefühl spreche ich auch nicht. Es geht hier ums Geld.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Helmut K.   
Bestätigung! Unser Privathaushalt hat 5er BMW gegen mittleres Model-S getauscht(beide um 75k€). Erste 20.000km sind gefahren, diese beinhalten Urlaubsfahrten, etc. bei bisherigen Ladekosten für ca. 600€. Geladen wird zuhaus, tagsüber (nach Feierabend) an der eigenen Voltaikanlage. Wenn's in Urlaub geht dann kostenlose Supercharger welche Herr Wilberg in seinem Bericht mit Limit angab welches wir nicht haben. Auch sein angegeber Verbrauch zeigt eine sportliche bis normale Fahrweise, auch hier ist Sparpotential vergraben. Alles in Allem ist das Teslafahren für jeden der zuhause an eigener oder geplanter Anlage laden kann, auch von Vorteil gegenüber einer normalen Mittelklasselimousine. Danke fürs Lesen.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Martin   
Ich liebe die Rechnungen, abseits der Realität und mit an den Haaren herbeigezogenen Zahlen. Beispiel Verbrauch: Der Strom kostet € 0,27/Kwh und nicht € 0,06/Kwh, also 450% von der angegebenen Zahl. Ein Oberklassefahrzeug hat heute in aller Regel einen Dieselmotor, der ca 9l/100km benötigt, bei derzeitigen Dieselpreisen von ca € 1,10 sind das € 4.950 und nicht € 11.000, also weniger als die Hälfte. Gänzlich vernachlässigt wurde die Neuanschaffung einer Batterie, mit der nach 5 - 8 Jahren zu rechnen ist und die mit über € 20.000 anzusetzen ist. Fräulein Milchmädchen läßt grüßen. Oder seien wir doch ehrlich, ein Tesla, der im Winter mal schlappe 300 km schafft ist derzeit wunderbar fashonable, aber nicht als Geschäftswagen einsetzbar.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Jules   
Das Thema selbst ist interessant, die Auflistung und deren Annahmen doch weit von der Realität entfernt, Während die Aussage der vergleichbaren BLPs korrekt ist, halten die folgenden Punkte dem Vergleich mit der Realität nicht stand. 2. Bei den Steuern wird der Tesla befreit, bei der Versicherung besteht kein Vorteil. Preise variieren stark von Modell zu Modell, ein S350d hat eine andere Einstufung als der S500 und so ist das auch beim Tesla. In den jeweiligen Leistungsstufen liegen die Modelle ähnlich, durch die von Daimler subventionierten HDI Versicherungen ist eine S-Klasse im Schnitt eher günstiger zu versichern. 3. Bei 50.000 KM pro Jahr sollte man mit 2 Satz Reifen rechnen, bei der 19 Zoll Bereifung von Tesla stehen alleine bei den Reifen locker zwei mal 800€, also bereits hier 1600€ an. Ebenfalls erheblich ist, dass hier wieder der für Vielfahrer eher ungeeignete S500 hergenommen wird dessen V8 erheblich teurer kommt als bspws. der S350d mit 6 Zylinder Diesel. Vergleicht man die jeweils wirtschaftlichsten Modelle der beiden Varianten ergeben sich hier maximal 1000€ Vorteil für den Tesla pro Jahr. 4. Und wieder steht und fällt die Rechnung mit dem betrachteten Modell. Der neue OM656 S350d wird im Schnitt mit 8L Diesel auf 100km zu bewegen sein, der bisherige 350d nahm sich hier 9L Diesel. Die Spritechnung kann mann also getrost halbieren, wenn man das entsprechende S-Klassen Modell nimmt. Fazit: Es kommt wie immer ganz darauf an, in der Praxis und den Leasingraten am Markt ist die S-Klasse bei der entsprechenden Modellwahl das deutlich wirtschaftlichere Fahrzeug als der Tesla. Der Autor macht es sich in seinem Artikel viel zu einfach und schreibt den Artikel vom gewünschten Ergebnis aus. Einen Schub für E-Autos würde es bspws. mit einer Halbierung der 1% Regelung für entsprechende E-Modelle geben - Das würde die Straßen mit E-Autos fluten.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Michael O.   
Ich fahre selbst einen Tesla Model S seit knapp 6 Wochen und kann es nur bestätigen: das Fahren macht wieder Spaß und die Folgekosten sind minimal. Tesla hat nicht nur ein E-Auto gebaut sondern ein Gesamtkonzept für die E-Mobilität geliefert (u.A. auch dank kostenfreien Superchargern auch für die Langstrecke). Die anderen Hersteller hängen noch weit hinterher.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Langjähriger Leser u. Netzwerktreffenteilnehmer   
Seit 6 Jahren fahre ich Elektroauto, davon 5 Jahre Tesla. Den Bericht oben kann ich nur bestätigen. Tendenziell sind die Kosten eher noch niedriger. Das gilt übrigens auch für ein Elektroauto das durch einen Mitarbeiter im Rahmen der Firmenwagenregelung genutzt wird. Der MA muss weniger versteuern und der AG hat geringere Kosten :-) Ich wünsche eine gute Zeit.
          Bocah 14 Tahun Ciptakan Energi Listrik Bermodal Rp 200.000   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Gara-gara terinspirasi oleh Nikola Tesla dan Albert Einsten, seorang remaja berusia 14 tahun Max Loughan dari Incline Village, Nevada, Amerika Serikat, berniat untuk mengubah dunia dengan hasil penemuannya.

Dalam laporan berita KTVN, yang Tekno Liputan6.com kutip dari Waking Times, Selasa (20/6/2017), Max menjelaskan perangkat pemanen energi hasil ciptaannya di ruang bawah tanah rumahnya yang disulap menjadi laboratorium.

"Masa depan yang saya bayangkan adalah sebuah masa depan yang dibayangkan oleh semua orang. Jika kamu memiliki energi, kamu akan memiliki kekuatan, dan kamu akan memiliki segala hal," kata Max.

Lantas, seperti apa perangkat pemanen listrik buatan remaja itu? Alat yang dibuat Max mirip dengan koil Tesla, demikian juga dengan cara kerjanya. Meski sederhana, kemampuannya cukup bisa diandalkan.
Alat tersebut berguna untuk menangkap energi elektromagnetik yang didapatkan dari atmosfer kemudian mengubahnya menjadi listrik arus searah (DC) yang bisa digunakan untuk menyalakan alat-alat elektronik.

Hebatnya, dalam mengembangkan tersebut itu, Max menghabiskan biaya kurang dari US$ 15 atau sekitar Rp 200 ribuan saja.

Mengutip laporan KTVN, selama beberapa bulan menciptakan alat pemanen listrik itu, ia menggunakan sebuah kaleng kopi, kabel, dua lilitan kabel, dan sebuah sendok.

"Kabel bertugas mengumpulkan energi, gelombang radio, dan panas dari udara dan di dalamnya ada kaleng kopi yang mengubahnya dari arus bolak balik (AC) menjadi arus searah (DC)," kata Max.
Untuk membuktikan penemuannya ini benar-benar berhasil mengubah listrik, Max melilitkan lampu LED pada saudara kembarnya yang bernama Jack. Kemudian, anak yang bermimpi mengubah dunia itu menghubungkan lampu LED ke alat ciptaannya. Tak butuh waktu lama, lampu LED yang dililitkan di tubuh saudaranya itu pun menyala.

"Semudah itu, dan sejak pertama hadir di Bumi, saya tahu apa alasan saya lahir, yaitu untuk membuat penemuan, untuk mengubah dunia," kata Max menegaskan.
Ia pun berharap agar temuannya bisa mengubah dunia sehingga di masa depan, manusia tak perlu berjuang untuk mendapatkan hal-hal dasar seperti energi. Hebatnya lagi, keberhasilan Max tak membuatnya berorientasi pada uang atau pengakuan dari pihak lain.

"Tujuan utama saya adalah menjadikan Bumi sebagai tempat yang lebih baik, sehingga di masa depan orang-orang bisa berbahagia, selamat, dan damai," kata anak yang gemar memakai jas laboratorium itu.

          Comment on Goldman Sachs Provides a Bearish Picture on Tesla Inc (TSLA) as All Eyes on Model 3 Production by joeinslw   
Goldman Sachs, did you mean Goldman Sucks? What do they know about EV"s (which stands for Electric Vehicles in case you didn't know) I am sick and tired of reading these predictions that aren't true, or way off base. Not to long ago when tsla was 160.00 per share, there was someone who said Tesla Motors a very bad company & a very bad investment, and put a sell rating on Tesla, and I said that was a "Cheap Shot" I still feel that way with people who make snap predictions without knowing all the real facts, and they can't know all the facts. It's well known that the CEO Mr. Elon Musk keeps many of his decisions including information about Tesla close, (as they say close to the vest) and yet people still make predictions that turn out to be completely wrong, and continue to be wrong for the last five years. These wrong predictions are what makes Tesla Motors a risky investment, I have found it to be just the opposite because of these wrong predictions. I have been seeing, and reading about these predictions for the last 5-6 years, nothing has changed they continue to make wrong predictions which is doing a DIS-service to many investors, or who would be investors, but because of these erroneous comments, they shy away, or worse become short sellers because they are convinced that Tesla Motors will fail, go out of business, and screw all their long & loyal investors. Short sellers and others who don't know what Americans want, continue to bash Tesla Motors they fail to see that this CEO Mr. Musk will not allow that to happen. Several years ago when Tesla was just getting started they did get into some serious financial trouble, but the saving grace was Mr. Musk himself, he put his hand into his own pocket, and saved the company, how many company CEO's do you know that would use their own personal cash to do that? The fact that GM crushed all of the leased EV1's they made in 1999 because they supported fossil fueled cars instead is never published, never talked about in any circles, auto magazines, or publications. Nobody seems to care about what Americans or the World wants, and what they want are Electric Cars that make sense, use less energy, don't have the maintenance schedule that fossil fueled cars require, in one word that made the United States a great country, is freedom, but also....choice...

          Devices With Linux: Tesla Cars, 'Internet of Things', Intel Has a New Media SDK for Linux   
  • Tesla starts pushing new Linux kernel update, hinting at upcoming UI improvements

    Albeit being about 6 months late, Tesla finally started pushing the new Linux kernel update to the center console in its vehicles this week.

    While it’s only a backend upgrade, Tesla CEO Elon Musk associated it with several long-awaited improvements to the vehicle’s user interface. Now that the kernel upgrade is here, those improvements shouldn’t be too far behind.

    Sources told Electrek that the latest 8.1 update (17.24.30), upgraded the Linux Kernel from the version 2.6.36 to the version 4.4.35.

  • Is Ubuntu set to be the OS for Internet of Things?

    The Internet of Things has enjoyed major growth in recent years, as more and more of the world around us gets smarter and more connected.

    But keeping all these new devices updated and online requires a reliable and robust software background, allowing for efficient and speedy monitoring and backup when needed.

    Software fragmentation has already become a significant issue across the mobile space, and may threaten to do so soon in the IoT.

    Luckily, Canonical believes it can solve this problem, with its IoT Ubuntu Core OS providing a major opportunity for manufacturers and developers across the world to begin fully monetising and realising the potential of the new connected ecosystem.

  • What's New in Intel Media SDK 2017 R2 for Embedded Linux

    Among the key features this release enables is the Region of Interest (ROI) for HEVC encoder in constant and variable bitrate modes.

    Developers can now control the compression rate of specific rectangular regions in input stream while keeping the bitrate target. This makes it possible, for example, to reduce compression of the areas where the viewer needs to see more details (e.g. faces or number plates), or to inrease it for the background with complicated texture that otherwise would consume majority of the bandwidth. ROI can also be used to put a privacy mask on certain regions that have to be blurred (e.g. logos or faces).

          Uber nos muestra en vídeo su nuevo y flamante camión autónomo, adelantándose a Google y Tesla   

Uber Otto

La próxima batalla dentro de la conducción autónoma se librará en los camiones autónomos, y aquí Uber quiere dar el primer golpe al adelantarse a Google (Waymo) y Tesla, quienes aún siguen desarrollando sus proyectos.

Aquí cabe destacar que Uber ya tiene tiempo usando prototipos e incluso crearon una alianza con Budweiser para entregar un pedido de cervezas a bordo de un camión autónomo de Otto en octubre de 2016, compañía que fue adquirida por Uber en agosto de ese año. Hoy Uber hace un lado la marca Otto y nos presenta su primer camión autónomo, que es una evolución tecnológica ante lo visto el año pasado.

La segunda generación de camiones autónomos de Uber

En medio de la batalla legal que está enfrentado Uber por parte de Google, donde se les acusa del robo de documentos confidenciales relacionados con tecnología de conducción autónoma, la compañía está dando a conocer su segunda generación de camiones autónomos de donde se destaca nueva tecnología en sensores LIDAR, con lo que buscan quitarse de encima la demanda de Google.

Este nuevo sensor LIDAR ha sido desarrollado bajo un diseño exclusivo de Uber y utiliza 64 canales creados específicamente para su uso en camiones, es decir, no tiene nada que ver con los desarrollos de Google y la información que ahora mismo se discute en tribunales. Estos nuevos camiones abandonan los sensores creados por Velodyne, que es ahora mismo el líder del sector.

Uber Otto 01

Un punto importante es que Uber está abandonando la marca 'Otto', esto por un lado debido cuestiones legales derivadas de una demanda por parte de la compañía canadiense 'Otto Motors', y por el otro, como respuesta a la demanda por parte de Google, donde la marca se está viendo especialmente afectada.

La nueva división que se encargará del desarrollo de estos camiones autónomos es conocida como Uber ATG (Advanced Technology Group), la cual está integrada por el equipo que fundó Otto, a excepción de Anthony Levandowski, el ex empleado de Google acusado de robar información para fundar Otto y que ahora ha sido despedido de Uber.

Cabe señalar que estos nuevos camiones autónomos están certificados hasta el momento bajo el nivel SAE 2, ya que el objetivo no es sustituir al conductor, sino ayudar en trayectos de largo alcance en autopistas de alta velocidad. Los camiones de Uber ya han iniciado pruebas en las carreteras de San Francisco con miras a expandirse a otras regiones de Estados Unidos, donde el objetivo es crear alianzas con compañías que requieran de estos servicios y así impulsar las regulaciones necesarias para su uso.

          Tunguska: la explosión de 12 megatones que nos recuerda que el espacio está lleno de maravillas, pero también de horrores   

Snip 20170630144919

El 30 de junio de 1908 una explosión del tamaño de una bomba H destruyó millones de árboles en decenas de kilómetros a la redonda. Así entró Tunguska, una remota región siberiana, en los libros de historia.

La explosión fue tan salvaje que se llegó a hablar de antimateria en 1965 o incluso de un diminuto agujero negro en 1973 . Pero esas no son, ni de lejos, las explicaciones más "interesantes". Se ha hablado de ovnis estrellándose por accidente o, atención, de una prueba de concepto del famoso "rayo de la muerte" de Nikola Tesla.

¿Qué pasó en Tunguska?

Tunguska Event Fallen Trees

Sin embargo, la realidad es mucho más prosaica y, hoy por hoy, los científicos discuten si se trataba de un asteroide pequeño o del fragmento de un cometa. Porque ni en 1921 (cuando se envió la primera expedición al lugar), ni en ninguna de las expediciones posteriores se ha encontrado algo parecido a un cráter.

¿Cómo sabemos entonces que ocurrió algo en Tunguska esa mañana de junio? Pues porque se enteró todo el mundo: los sismógrafos de toda Asia y toda Europa captaron la explosión; el Observatorio de Greenwich captó variaciones en la presión atmosférica por la cantidad de aire puesto en circulación; y, para rematar, el polvo en suspensión hizo que en el norte de Eurasia la noche fuera tan brillantes que parecía de día.

Es decir, algo pasó en aquellas deshabitadas tierras del Óblast de Irkutsk, de eso no hay duda. La teoría más aceptada es que ese pequeño meteorito originó una explosión termonuclear a unos 8 kilómetros de altitud y con una potencia de 12 megatones. Todo lo de después fue muerte y destrucción.

¿Podría repetirse?

La respuesta corta es sí. De hecho eventos como el del Mediterráneo Oriental, el de Vitim o incluso el de Cheliábinsk muestran que es posible que se repita. La respuesta larga es que se trata de algo poco probable. No sólo porque este tipo de eventos sean ya de por sí algo bastante raro, sino porque (como en todos estos casos) cuando se producen, se suelen dar en zonas despobladas.

No es casualidad: la inmensa mayoría de la superficie de la Tierra está despoblada. No obstante, no debemos bajar la guardia. Hace un par de años, la gente de Microsiervos rescataba un texto de Arthur C. Clarke donde imaginaba qué pasaría si Tunguska ocurría en el corazón de Europa:

A las 9.46 (meridiano Greenwich) de la mañana del 11 de septiembre, en el verano excepcionalmente hermoso del año 2077, la mayor parte de los habitantes de Europa vieron aparecer en el cielo oriental una deslumbrante bola ígnea. En cuestión de segundos se tornó más brillante que el Sol y al desplazarse en el cielo -al principio en completo silencio– iba dejando detrás una ondulante columna de polvo y humo.

En algún punto sobre Austria comenzó a desintegrarse produciendo una serie de explosiones, tan violentas que más de un millón de personas quedaron con los oídos dañados para siempre. Fueron las afortunadas.

Desplazándose a cincuenta kilómetros por segundo, un millón de toneladas de roca y metal cayó sobre las llanuras del norte de Italia y destruyó con una llamarada de segundos la labor de siglos. Las ciudades de Padua y Verona fueron barridas de la faz de la Tierra; y las últimas glorias de Venecia se hundieron para siempre en el mar cuando las aguas del Adriático avanzaron atronadoras hacia tierra después de aquel golpe fulminante venido del cielo.

Seiscientas mil personas murieron, y el daño material se calculó en más de un trillón de dólares

Feliz día del Asteroide

Cita con Rama se publicó en 1973 y es, evidentemente, pura ficción. Sin embargo, el relato es sugestivo: la capacidad del espacio exterior para comprometer la vida en este planeta es tan cierta como lo eran, hace 66 millones de años, los dinosaurios.

Por eso cada año, el 30 de junio se celebra el Día del Asteroide con la intención de crear conciencia sobre este problema y debatir sobre las posibilidades que tenemos para proteger a la Tierra. Desde este año, además, está reconocido por la ONU.

El espacio es un lugar maravilloso, pero, como la noche, también es oscuro y alberga horrores. No está de más recordarlo, al menos una vez al año.

          Tesla Model 3: el domingo habrá un nuevo anuncio sobre su lanzamiento   
tesla-model-3-lanzamiento-201737444_2.jp

El Tesla Model 3 está ya muy cerca.

Por el momento, la única fecha concreta que tenemos es el 31 de julio. Antes de ese día, en teoría comenzarán las entregas de los primeros Tesla Model 3, tal y como prometían los responsables de la marca tiempo atrás, aunque hasta ahora no ha precisado todavía ni el día exacto ni muchas de las características del modelo. Por lo que no sabemos precisar que anunciará Tesla este domingo.

Como es habitual en Elon Musk, en su tweet se ha limitado a dar solo datos o declaraciones que puedan levantar expectación, lo que genera más artículos y por tanto presencia en los medios para la marca y el modelo. Pero no ha sido demasiado específico con respecto a las novedades que veremos el domingo. Como es habitual, buena estrategia por parte de Musk.

tesla-model-3-lanzamiento-201737444_3.jp

El Tesla Model 3 llegará a sus primeros clientes antes de que acabe julio.

En los últimos meses hemos hablado largo y tendido sobre el desarrollo y lanzamiento del nuevo modelo, tanto del extraño plan de desarrollo que ha tenido como de la peculiar estrategia de entrega que implementará la marca, ya que primeramente entregará unidades del nuevo modelo a sus empleados, tanto de Tesla como de SpaceX, las empresas de Musk.

Esto se debe a la voluntad de la compañía de poner a prueba esos primeros ejemplares, de manera que sean los propios empleados los que puedan detectar fallos prematuros y que por tanto, puedan informar antes a la compañía, y así esta, responder con premura a estos problemas de juventud del modelo, sin necesidad de generar mala prensa o enfadar a los clientes.

Tendremos que esperar al próximo domingo para saber qué novedades desvelará Tesla. Esperamos que llegado ya el mes de julio, sean también confirmados todos los detalles que aún están en el tintero, como la confirmación de los detalles de precios y especificaciones, o la activación del configurador del modelo.

          Sintropija – ustvarjalna moč narave   
Vsako obdobje v razvoju družbe ponudi prostoru nova spoznanja na poti celostnega razumevanja življenja, naše so-odvisnosti, naših ustvarjalnih moči in manifestiranih idej. Na najrazličnejših ravneh in dimenzijah opazovanja. In vsake toliko časa nam nekaj požene vznemirjenje v vsako našo celico. Ljubezen. Presenečenja. Dosega cilja. Spoznanje na poti. Misel. Upanje. Rojstvo.

Tovrstno vznemirjenje je v meni povzročilo srečanje s SINTROPIJO. Težko je opisati občutke, ki so me prežemali, ko sem potovala skozi zapletene, v večini primerov meni nerazumljene formule, pa vendar tako domače, da sem jih doživljala, kot da so sestavni del mene že od nekdaj. Pri tem je pomembno vlogo igral slovenski jezik, ki ga avtor Andrej Detela uporablja v njegovi najžlahtnejši obliki in z njim ustvari melodijo, ki prodira globoko v nezavedno in skladišči vanj svežino, gostoto novega, pravega. V knjigi z naslovom »SINTROPIJA v polifaznih zibelkah«.
“Narava vedno vzame, kar je na razpolago, in iz tega naredi največ, kar lahko …” Neznani avtor
Naj vas naslov ne prestraši ali odvrne od sporočil knjige, ki so za nas tako pomembna kot razumevanje evolucije, razumevanje dialektike, razumevanje pomena veselja za kakovostno življenje. To je zgodba sintropije in fizika, ki je dokazal njen obstoj. Odprite srce, odprite vse svoje ravni zaznavanja in naj vas zgodba nagradi za vaše potovanje.

V: Kaj je sintropija?
Sintropija je samoorganizacijska sposobnost narave.

V: Kako dolgo se že zavedamo njenega obstoja, jo opazujemo?
Že leta 1943 je Erwin Schrödinger odprl vprašanje samoorganizacijske sposobnosti žive snovi, ki jo je Leon Brillouin pojmoval »negentropija«, saj gre za nekakšno »življenjsko silo«, ki znižuje entropijo vsakega živega sistema z visoko stopnjo notranje (samo)organizacije. V matematičnem jeziku pa bi negentropijo lahko poimenovali nasprotje entropije, zato jo biomatematik Luigi Fantappiè in biokemik Albert Szent-Györgyi (leta 1974) poimenujeta sintropija. Ideje o njenem obstoju pa so bile prisotne že veliko prej. Francoski vitalisti in Pasteur so že uporabljali izraz »življenjska sila«, a smo potrebovali čas, da so se razvili matematični in fizikalni modeli (formule), ki so znali te pojave opisati in dokazati. Že Nikola Tesla je pisal o »svetlečem etru«, a bil nerazumljen, ker so bili njegovi uvidi tako zelo drugačni od takratne ravni razumevanja fizike in življenja nasploh, da se niso razširili med ljudi.

V: Kaj razumevanje sintropije pomeni za razumevanje življenja?
Če imamo možnost sintropije, potem neki fizikalni sistem pri ugodnih faznih razlikah (kar matematično opišemo s tako imenovano fazno strukturo sistema) ne gre po poti entropije, ne gre v smeri k termodinamskemu kaosu in toplotni smrti, temveč gre v smeri k vse večji notranji organizaciji, k večji kompleksnosti, gre v smeri življenja. Že Szent-Györgyi je slutil, da imajo vsi živi sistemi že na celičnem nivoju vgrajene mehanizme, ki delujejo v smislu sintropije. S tem se je že pred njim ukvarjal tudi Schrödinger v knjižici What's life? Že on je posumil, da na kvantnem nivoju obstajajo procesi, ki presegajo klasično termodinamiko. Omenil bi lahko še Brillouina in tako naprej.

V: Dokaz o obstoju sintropije torej pomeni izziv obstoječim dogmam in naukom?

Slika: Andrej Detela
Vir: selffish studio
Ja, z idejo sintropije izzovemo osnovno jedro klasične termodinamike. Saj termodinamika je bila utemeljena na dveh osnovnih zakonih, na energijskem zakonu (v celotnem sistemu se skupna energija vedno ohranja, tudi če se pretvarja iz ene oblike v drugo, npr. iz mehanske v električno); drugi zakon pa je entropijski zakon, ki pravi, da se entropija v celotnem zaključenem sistemu veča ali kvečjemu ohranja, nikoli pa se more manjšati. Entropijski zakon torej trdi, da je na svetu vedno več entropije, vedno več kaosa in nereda ... Naraščanje entropije lahko ponazorimo s preprostim primerom. Na primer, dokler so stvari zložene na polici in je vsaka lepo na svojem mestu, vlada red in entropija je majhna; potem pa, recimo, pride v sobo otrok in začne te stvari razmetavati vsenaokrog po tleh, in mi rečemo, da je nastal nered in da se je povečala entropija.

V: A ti se s to razlago nisi zadovoljil. V raziskovanju si naredil korak naprej …
Andrej Detela, pisatelj, pesnik, filozof, ekolog, fizik in mednarodno uveljavljeni izumitelj z Inštituta Jožef Stefan, je znan kot avtor najbolj naprednih elektromotorjev za robote in za električna vozila nove generacije, pri čemer se navdihuje v naravi. Kot inovator odkriva ekološke možnosti pridobivanja energije. V bazični znanosti je že dolgo dejaven na mladem področju sintropije. S holističnim pristopom k dojemanju sveta povezuje spoznanja znanosti z osebno izkustveno duhovnostjo.
Seveda. V življenju vlada neka urejenost. Vsak atom v živi celici je točno na svojem mestu in ta red odloča o zdravju organizma. Že Schrödinger je sumil, da tu deluje neki subtilni mehanizem, po katerem se živa snov samoorganizira. Malo pozneje je Szent-Györgyi o tem začel pisati knjige, še pozneje pa je na tej ideji Prigogine zgradil svojo teorijo t.i. disipativnih struktur. A te njegove strukture eksplicitno ostajajo še zmeraj v okviru entropijskega zakona. Schrödinger pa je pustil odprto možnost tudi za sintropijo. S to temo, ki neodgovorjena občutljivo visi v zraku, so se ukvarjali tudi drugi, in zadnje čase sem vse bolj čutil, da prav tu mora priti do bistvenih premikov.

V: Kaj je bistvena ideja tvojega dela?

Glavno težišče, bistvena ideja mojega dela je opis kompleksnih kvantnih sistemov s Teslovo teorijo polifaznih oscilacij. Torej, združil sem to dvoje. Teslovo teorijo polifaznih sistemov, v katerih je jasno definirana smer časa, sem vpeljal na nivo kvantne fizike. Tega še ni delal nihče, in to je za te stvari bistveno novo; in to je tisto, kar je dalo izjemno zanimive rezultate. Šele takrat, ko sem v teoriji sintropije začel uporabljati Teslove polifazne sisteme, so enačbe postale zadosti enostavne, da se je z njimi dalo elegantno računati in da sva z mladim sodelavcem Gorazdom Lampičem potem prišla do številnih uporabnih rezultatov. A treba jih je bilo osvetliti z globljim razumevanjem, zato sva s kolegom fizikom analizirala še naprej in ugotavljala, kaj vse to pomeni. Ne zadostuje, če delamo nekaj kar na slepo, temveč je treba tudi raziskovati, kaj pravzaprav sploh pomeni tisto, kar delaš. To izrecno poudarjam, ker v sodobnem znanstvenem delu tega drugega zelo primanjkuje. Ljudje hitijo s pisanjem člankov, da nekaj hitro objavijo, in zmanjka jim časa za razumevanje globljega smisla tega, kar so naredili. Osebno menim, da se ne smemo izogniti bremenu notranje svobode, ko pogumno vstopamo v tisti prazni, odprti prostor, kjer edino lahko iskreno in smiselno interpretiramo rezultate našega dela. Žal pa današnja tekmovalna družba tega ne podpira, zato se moraš opreti na svoj lastni pogum, kar je že izrazito notranja duhovna drža. 
1. predstavitev knjige »SINTROPIJA v polifaznih zibelkah« bo v Lescah na Gorenjskem, Vila Milena, petek 20. junija ob 18-ih 
V: Da približava koncept sintropije našim bralcem, te prosim, da nam postrežeš z nekaj primeri iz narave, ki govorijo v podporo sintropiji.
Z veseljem. Značilnosti sintropije lahko zaznamo v svetu kristalov. Ko atomi v kristalih vibrirajo, v kristalu nekoliko oscilira tudi oblika električnega potenciala (oblika periodičnega kristalnega potenciala za elektrone). Če ima kristal vsaj količkaj netrivialno notranjo strukturo (in navadno je tako), lahko tudi v kristalih nastopijo polifazne oscilacije, ki kažejo na značilnosti sintropije.
Japonec Masaru Emoto ugotavlja, da na rast snežink delujejo zelo subtilni vplivi. Številni zunanji vplivi, zunanja polja odločajo o tem, v katerih smereh bo snežinka rasla, delala fraktalne strukture ... Splošna teorija o sintropiji napoveduje, da rast snežinke uravnavajo akustične oscilacije v kristalčkih ledu, akustična frekvenca pa je silno visoka (hiperzvok). Ta hiperzvočna simfonija ima izjemno bogate izrazne možnosti.
Sintropna samoorganizacija se sproži tudi v kristalu vode, ki se seveda imenuje led. V ledu med sabo sozvanja več oscilacij, in to je neke vrste harmonična glasba (analogna s polifono orgelsko glasbo), s pravilnimi faznimi zamiki med faznimi nihanji. Tudi ta oscilacija se samoojačuje (pozitivna povratna zveza), nihanje atomov postane koherentno (sinhronizirano) in z jasnimi frekvencami, o katerih za zdaj govorijo samo bioenergetiki.

Podoben primer je tudi snežinka, ki je samostojen kristalček ledu. Vemo, da pod različnimi pogoji zraste v različne oblike.

Podobno kot v ledu se tudi v živi snovi spontano vzbudijo hiperzvočne oscilacije. Hiperzvok je akustično valovanje s frekvenco, višjo od 10 GHz. Teorija napoveduje in številne meritve potrjujejo tako visoko frekvenco. Če se frekvenca hiperzvočnih valov, ki potujejo po proteinskih verigah, ujame z resonančnimi frekvencami konformacijskih prehodov v teh proteinih, se sprožijo prav tiste konformacijske spremembe, ki ustrezajo določeni frekvenci. Različne frekvence torej preklapljajo določena »stikala« v proteinskih verigah in s tem povzročajo določene prehode biomolekule iz ene biološko aktivne oblike v drugo aktivno obliko. Hiperzvočna simfonija, ki se razpreda po vsem telesu in otipava tudi najmanjše dele celic, preigrava proteinske strukture in uravnava biološke funkcije organizma. To so zdaj še hipoteze, se pa zanje kopiči vse več dokazov.

Če gremo še en korak naprej, že pridemo v t.i. ezoteriko. Stare slike iz Indije ali Tibeta prikazujejo/opisujejo subtilno telo (pranično telo) človeka, z glavnimi čakrami in s številnimi energijskimi nitkami, ki jih zdaj znamo razumeti kot tokovnice hiperzvočnega valovanja. To je torej informacijska struktura telesa in sintropija je tisti skriti mehanizem, ki omogoča harmonizacijo vseh delov v zdravo celoto.

V: Še iz šolskih klopi smo si vsi zapomnili rek, da je energija neuničljiva. Kako se sintropija obnaša v odnosu do tega zakona?
Na primer, v lučeh se električna energija spreminja v svetlobno energijo in svetlobna energija se nazadnje pretvori v toplotno energijo. Torej, v ta prostor pride po žicah električna energija, ki ima zelo nizko entropijo. V lučeh se ta energija spremeni v svetlobno energijo, ki pa ima že malo večjo entropijo kot električna energija. Ko potem svetloba zadene stene, se v stenah pretvori v toploto. Ta toplota ima skorajda isto temperaturo kot okolje, zato ima zelo veliko entropijo. Do sedaj pa nihče ni znal ustvariti obratnega procesa, da bi se toplota naravnega okolja spremenila nazaj v električno energijo.
Res je. Vsi vemo za energijski zakon: energija se ne more uničiti, energija ne nastane iz nič. Obstajajo le pretvorbe energije iz ene oblike v drugo. Energija z majhno entropijo (v tem primeru električna energija, glej okvirček) se je spremenila v energijo z visoko entropijo, v toploto naravnega okolja. Do sedaj pa nihče ni znal ustvariti obratnega procesa, da bi se toplota naravnega okolja spremenila nazaj v električno energijo. V električno energijo smo znali pretvarjati samo tisto toploto, ki ima zelo visoko temperaturo, veliko višjo, kot je naravna temperatura okolja. Taki procesi se dogajajo v termoelektrarnah, na primer v Šoštanju, kjer imamo sedaj znani škandal s koruptivnim primerom TEŠ-6. Energijske pretvorbe v termoelektrarnah se začnejo pri kemični energiji premoga, in to je energija z nizko entropijo, sicer nadaljnje energijske pretvorbe sploh ne bi bile možne. Premog gori in ustvari pregreto vodno paro s precej visoko temperaturo, kakih 600 stopinj Celzija, para potem poganja turbine, turbine poganjajo električne generatorje. V klasičnih elektrarnah torej potrebujemo veliko višjo temperaturo, kot je naravna temperatura okolja. Do zdaj niso znali v električno energijo pretvarjati naravne toplote na temperaturi okolja. Ali vidite razliko med enim in drugim?

V: V čem je sintropična paradigma drugačna?
S sintropijo smo ustvarili možnost energijske reciklaže.

Vizija, ki jo dovoljuje sintropična paradigma, je povsem drugačna: toploto iz naravnega okolja spreminjamo direktno v električno energijo. Zamislimo si, kako bi potekal ta proces! Stene v tem prostoru se za malenkost ohladijo, morda za 10 stopinj, in iz te toplote bi potem pridobili električno energijo, ki bi jo napeljali v daljnovod. To je torej časovni obrat klasičnih energijskih pretvorb, obratni proces, v katerem se toplotna energija z visoko entropijo pretvarja v električno energijo z nizko entropijo. Entropijski zakon to možnost seveda prepoveduje, ker dovoljuje samo prehode na višjo entropijo. Šele zakon sintropije razloži  ta obratni proces. To praktično pomeni, da okolja ne obremenjujemo več z odpadno toploto, temveč znamo sedaj reciklirati prav to toploto nazaj v električno energijo, ki jo po vsakem energijskem ciklu lahko znova in znova uporabljamo. Ni nam treba izčrpavati vedno novih energijskih virov (premog, nafta, uran in tako naprej) in potem v nedogled odlagati odpadno toploto v okolje. Zdaj smo ustvarili možnost energetske reciklaže. Sklenili smo energijski krog, ne potrebujemo več nobenega goriva, nobene nafte, nobenega premoga itn. Našli smo možnost za reciklažo odpadne toplote, ki je zmeraj končni produkt vseh energijskih pretvorb. Začnemo sodelovati z ravnovesjem med entropijo in sintropijo, ki obstaja v naravi.

Na primer, ko avti vozi po cesti, se gume segrejejo, in ko zaviramo, se grejejo zavorni diski; zaradi zračnega upora pa se greje zrak okrog avta, okoliški zrak pa grejejo tudi izpušni plini in avtomobilski hladilnik. Na koncu gre vse v toploto. Ampak sedaj znamo to odpadno toploto reciklirati nazaj v električno energijo. Čez deset let bodo verjetno v glavnem prevladali električni avtomobili, ki bodo na osnovi sintropije toploto okolja pretvarjali nazaj v električno energijo, ki bo potem poganjala elektromotorje v avtomobilu. To je rešitev za energijske probleme sodobne civilizacije, med drugim seveda tudi za razvpiti problem tople grede.

V: Uporaba spoznanj, povezanih s sintropijo, ima lahko izjemne družbene posledice. Kaj o tem meniš sam?
Tu se bom oslonil kar na razmišljanja iz Teslove avtobiografije (pri nas je izšla pred kratkim pod naslovom Moji izumi). On je že pred stotimi leti pisal o novih virih energije in opozarjal, na kaj moramo biti pri tem pozorni. Tok dogodkov v teh časih na splošno poteka prehitro, vse stvari hočemo takoj dati v javnost in prav vsiljivo tržiti, še preden jih dobro razumemo. Zato bom vseskozi opozarjal na filozofske, socialne, psihološke vidike teh novih možnosti, ki jih daje spoznanje o sintropiji. Torej, če so nam zdaj kar naenkrat podarjene nove možnosti energijskih pretvorb, je izjemno pomembno, da v vsej celovitosti razumemo, kaj to pomeni. Nove priložnosti ne bomo vpenjali v stari način razmišljanja, ne bomo je spet zlorabljali.

V: Kaj misliš s tem zadnji.m stavkom?
Sintropija pa govori o tem, da svet ne deluje skozi prevlado močnejšega, temveč na kvantnem nivoju, ki je veliko bolj resničen, opažamo, kako različne entitete medsebojno sozvanjajo v čudežno ubrani harmoniji in se vsebinsko bogatijo.
Po starem so se namreč nove možnosti v svet vpeljavale z namenom, da imajo eni ljudje prevlado nad drugimi. Sintropija pa govori o tem, da svet ne deluje skozi prevlado močnejšega, temveč na kvantnem nivoju, ki je veliko bolj resničen, opažamo, kako različne entitete medsebojno sozvanjajo v čudežno ubrani harmoniji in se vsebinsko bogatijo. Šele ko razumemo to prvinsko sodelovalnost in ji odpremo vrata v človeški svet, se morda naše realno življenje dvigne na neki višji in lepši nivo. Morda tudi bolj božanski nivo? Brez tega razumevanja bi bilo vse to, kar vam sedaj govorim o sintropiji, nesmiselno, ker bi tudi to reč spet takoj zlorabili. Ne bomo. Saj vsi hrepenimo po duhovno ozaveščenem in dostojnem življenju, želimo si sožitja s celoto in ljubečega odnosa do te celote, v tej celoti bi se vsi radi počutili varni in srečni. Torej, edinole v tem duhovnem kontekstu ima spoznanje o sintropiji neki pomen in smisel.

Andrej, naj ti dobre sile stojijo ob strani in plemenitijo tvoje delo. Globok poklon za tvojo dosedanjo pot in uvide, ki so še pred tabo.

Oj, Violeta

Equipamento da empresa The Boring Company, de Elon Musk (Foto: Reprodução)

 

Em janeiro deste ano, Elon Musk anunciou que iria criar uma empresa de escavação para construir túneis e acabar com o trânsito da cidade de Los Angeles. Aprendemos a não duvidar do CEO da Tesla quando ele realmente recebeu a entrega de uma escavadeira gigantesca marcada com o nome da empresa The Boring Company - um trocadilho em inglês com as palavras “escavar” e “entediar”.

Esta semana, Musk usou sua conta no Twitter para anunciar que a escavadeira batizada de "Godot", em referência a uma peça de teatro de 1953, completou a primeira fase da construção do túnel de LA. O CEO da Tesla também divulgou vídeos do novo túnel e afirmou que o esqueleto do elevador para carros já foi instalado, e deve começar a funcionar na próxima semana. 

 

 

O plano inicial é criar uma rede com até 30 níveis de túneis para carros. No vídeo publicado por Musk, os veículos ficam sobre as plataformas dos elevadores, que vão até o subsolo e podem atingir a velocidade de até 200 km/h para escapar do trânsito.  E parece que o projeto está saindo do papel.

          10 Battery Gigafactories Are Now in the Works. And Elon Musk May Add 4 More   

Gigafactory announcements have been trending in recent months, with plans for at least 10 new plants revealed in the last six months. Half a dozen have been planned in the last month alone.

In Germany, for example, the Daimler subsidiary Accumotive laid the foundation for a $550 million plant designed to take annual lithium-ion battery production from its current level of 80,000 units up to around 320,000.

And Energy Absolute, of Thailand, reportedly has plans for a $2.9 billion factory in Asia, with an annual production capacity of 1 gigawatt-hour per year, scaling to 50 gigawatt-hours a year by 2020. 

Meanwhile, a consortium including Boston Energy and Innovation (BEI), Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly, Primet Precision Materials and Magnis Resources confirmed it will build a 15-gigawatt-hour-a-year plant on IBM’s former Huron Campus manufacturing site in New York.

BEI, Charge CCCV, C&D Assembly and Magnis Resources are also working with Eastman Kodak Group to build a similarly sized plant near Townsville in Queensland, Australia. The backers have said the plant could create around 7,000 jobs. 

More recently a company called Energy Renaissance has lifted the lid on plans for a factory in Darwin, in Australia’s Northern Territory, with a production capacity of a gigawatt-hour of batteries a year.

The most aggressive gigafactory plans, however, remain with the company that came up with the concept. Tesla’s Elon Musk has said he will announce “probably four” new gigafactories this year. One has long been slated for Europe, and another has been confirmed to be in the works in Shanghai, China. 

The recent announcements follow at least five gigafactory proposals put forward for Europe before the end of last year, including facilities in Sweden, Hungary and Poland. Not all the new plants will focus on lithium-ion batteries, though. 

The U.S. lead-acid battery maker Johnson Controls, for example, unveiled proposals for two Chinese plants with a combined annual capacity of 13.5 million batteries.

The company already has production capacity for 16 million batteries a year, from a factory in Chongqing and one in Zhejiang, and is looking invest $250 million in a new plant that could produce up to 7.5 million units a year in Shandong from 2019. 

A second plant would follow in 2020. The increased capacity is aimed at satisfying growing demand from the start-stop engine market.

Overall, Bloomberg reports that global battery-making capacity is set to more than double by 2021, topping 278 gigawatt-hours a year compared to 103 gigawatt-hours at present.

The massive planned increase in battery production feels similar to the Chinese manufacturing boom that radically altered the PV landscape around a decade ago, by creating oversupply that ultimately led to the demise of dozens of solar firms.

Could the same phenomenon be underway in battery manufacturing?

Probably not, say storage experts. The pricing declines won't be nearly as dramatic due to supply chain differences. 

"Unlike PV, battery raw materials are rare metals that have to be mined and processed, so they will have constant supply-demand push-pull, minimizing risk of supply glut," said Ravi Manghani, director of GTM Research's storage practice.

"The industry is in the middle of a huge cost declines phase as manufacturers continue to bring large gigafactories on-line. While some individual vendors may see massive cost step-downs as facilities are activated or new generation products with superior density are launched, on a macro level, the declines are going to be much more gradual," said Manghani.

According to Logan Goldie-Scot, head of Bloomberg New Energy Finance's storage practice, the growth in production capacity is already considered in pricing forecasts.

“We're already factoring the ramp-up in production capacity and ongoing price decreases into our analysis,” said Goldie-Scot. “I don't foresee a step-change reduction in price.”

By 2030, BNEF expects battery pack prices to fall to $73 per kilowatt-hour, down from a volume-weighted average of $273 per kilowatt-hour in 2016. 

“This is an average, though,” he said. “We're already seeing pack prices below $200 per kilowatt-hour.”

David Hart, director at E4tech, an international strategic consultancy focused on sustainable energy, said much of the upcoming capacity will be needed to satisfy forecast growth in vehicle electrification. 

“Building gigafactories is a logical next step in creating a battery industry that's fit for the purpose of supplying vehicles,” he said. “I don't think the rise in gigafactories will necessarily result in a price crash.”

Even if the battery market is unlikely to face the same pressures as solar, it will still grapple with challenges of its own.

“Very importantly, it's not clear that the resource supply chains exist yet for all these factories,” Hart said. “Lithium and cobalt supply needs to be increased, and everyone is vying for supply.”

          Apple is suspiciously interested in Fisker’s electric car   

Apple is suspiciously interested in Fisker’s electric car

Earlier this month, Apple CEO Tim Cook took the unusual step of confirming Apple's interest in developing self-driving car technologies. During a recent interview with Bloomberg, Cook was asked about Apple's aspirations in the automotive space. Responding quickly, Cook said: "We’re focusing on autonomous systems. It’s a core technology that we view as very important. We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects." Notably, there have also been reports that Apple's interest in designing and manufacturing their own branded car have subsided amid a number of technical hurdles.

Curiously, a Fisker Emotion -- an EV with 400 miles of range that will presumably take on Tesla -- was recently spotted at Apple headquarters in Cupertino today. And interestingly enough, the Emotion's appearance came about after Apple engineers indicated that they wanted to take a look at the car's underlying technology.

The Detroit Bureau reports:

The likelihood of a sightseeing tour is slight. And while Henrik Fisker declined to comment – with Apple not yet responding to a request for comment – some of those sources say the Emotion was there for some very practical, rather than emotional, reasons.

Members of the Apple development team apparently wanted a closer look at the Emotion, and a better understanding of its unusual driveline technology, so they asked the Fisker crew to bring one up from that company’s headquarters in Southern California.

Additionally, Henrik Fisker tweeted out the following yesterday evening. As anyone who has been to or even seen Apple's current headquarters, it's clear that Fisker was over at 1 Infinite Loop.

https://twitter.com/FiskerOfficial/status/879934037204193280

Range aside, the Fisker Emotion appears to be a technical marvel, with a fast-charging system that enables the vehicle to charge up in just nine minutes. As we noted a few weeks back, the Emotion's impressive battery system is based on supercapacitors using graphene as opposed to the more traditional lithium-ion batteries used in vehicles like the Tesla Model S.

          An introvert’s guide to surviving Vinitaly   
Amor litteras ad Vinitaly
My dear mom was an extrovert. Being around people recharged her batteries, not that she needed them to. She was a perpetual motion machine. But as a child of hers, who came into the world as an introvert, the opposite happens when I am around a crowd. Thus, when I visited Vinitaly after a year’s absence, I imagined all the other people who might have to brave the endless pavilions of Veronafiere and are also introverts, and thought to make a plan for all of us.


That said, it was with some trepidation that I returned to Vinitaly this year. Two years ago I was pretty harsh about the state of the condition of the fair and was, for an introvert, uncharacteristically candid about it. It set off a firestorm in the Italian wine community. Way too much attention was aimed in my direction, and so I let the little bird free and backed away into my little corner of invisibility.

Last year I was unable to come to Vinitaly with a series of throat issues which ultimately resulted in having my tonsils removed in the summer. But enough about me. Let’s dive into an introvert’s guide to surviving Vinitaly.

1) Get yourself registered early. Sometime around the first of the year, if you are in the wine trade (and really this is not a consumer event – there are those available which I will note later in this post). When you do get registered, make sure you download the ticket before the cutoff date. Save it as a pdf. Make sure you do it, because if you don’t you will have to go through some heavy machinations at the fair, waiting in long lines, to beg forgiveness for not following instructions. Introverts don’t like lines – they might have to talk to a stranger or worse yet, get jostled in the line.

2) Arrange your accommodations well in advance of the event. Like years. Really. But if this is your first (or only) time to go to the fair, try and arrange to stay in Verona or somewhere nearby where a cab, or a shuttle (God, no!) can take you to the fair. Don’t skimp on the price. You get what you pay for. Do this now. And make sure you ask for an interior room, not one facing a the street where a wine bar is, where people bleed out into the street drinking until 2AM and talking loud, smoking and singing soccer team or old Lucio Battisti songs.

3) Download the Veronafiere Vinitaly map. Those 18 buildings (yes, I said 18!) represent your world for four days. Make a plan. Oh, and wear comfortable shoes. Even if they look dorky. And try and find a way to not have to spend so much time traveling from one building to the next. Not an easy task, by the way. But there will be crowds, and among those crowds you will encounter:
• People strolling like they are in a park.
• People smoking, especially in the spaces between the halls.
• People in first stages of foreplay – advanced by not spitting their wine out.
• Crowds – and at times – SURGING crowds.

When you must walk from one building (called Pavilions) to another try and walk around the perimeters. This will prove to be less populated (also less smoke) and also offer the introvert a change to recharge in the light and the air and the relative calm of the fair.

4) If you plan to see producers, make appointments. If the producer is famous, try and make the appointment early (before 10AM) or later (after 4PM), avoiding folks who again, surge the booths around lunch time. Allow at least an hour for an appointment.

5) Know where the good bathrooms are. I have already covered this in another post, but I need to amend that piece. Last year Veronafiere and Vinitaly previewed new “Producer” bathrooms. The participants of the fair who exhibit have access to clean, quiet, uncrowded stalls. To an introvert, 2 minutes in one of those is like plugging a Tesla into a charging station for 20 minutes. Find a producer who will give you their access to those bathrooms. They are lifesavers.


"What a pair!"
6) After hour events. While it sounds good to cap off the day with a dinner, plan these very carefully. After a day on your feet, probably the last thing an introvert wants to do is to take a long drive in the countryside, often on a crowded bus with other tired people, to go to a dinner with 300 other people. Because once you get there, there will be:
• Speeches – and Italians don’t give short speeches
• More wine
• More people (and names) you will never remember
• And endless courses of food (with the wine) that will force you to make small talk at the table with people you will never see again in your life.

Resist. Get yourself a salad and a glass of wine somewhere, early, before you go to your room, to power down and recuperate.

7) Transportation. The best suggestion I have heard was from Lars Leicht. He and his colleagues have arranged a car and a driver to pick them up in the morning and at the end of the day. No waiting in lines for a cab, no shuttles from the fair to downtown Verona. Quiet, clean, cars. Worth every penny. I made the rookie mistake of jumping on a shuttle at the end of the day that I thought was going to Verona. It was filled with throngs of young, wine marinated sports fans. And while I can appreciate the unbridled enthusiasm of wine-besotted youth, as an introvert, it is death by a thousand cuts. Don’t do it. Walk back to your room if you don’t have a personal car and driver (hence the reason to wear comfortable shoes).

Asa-Nisi-Masnaghetti
8) Off-site meetings. More and more importers and winery groups (importers, etc.) are doing their events in conjunction, nearby. Summa in Trentino is a haul, but a wonderful event to attend. It’s in and around an old castle and the vibe is Woodstock meets Burning Man with good food, good wine (and good coffee). As well, some importers, notably Marc de Grazia, do their events in a villa near the airport and is a laid back, mellow event where the noise levels are low, the buffet is good and one can have meaningful conversations with producers one is doing business with. This is not to take away from Vinitaly and the huge strides they have made to improve the wine fair. But it’s also a way to get a jump on the events before and during the show in Verona.


The folks at Veronafiere and Vinitaly have made valiant efforts to mitigate the crowds at Vinitaly. And they have initiated consumer friendly events in and around Verona city. One of them is Opera Wine, in conjunction with the Wine Spectator. Normally, an introvert would stay as far from that kind of event as possible. But, if you plan it correctly, you can get in and out relatively unscathed. The rooms do fill up, eventually, but an early arrival will allow one to sample and meet some great producers. So, buck up, get your smiley face on, and do it.

Regardless of our endless grousing about the shortcomings of a fair as large as Vinitaly (or Prowein or Vinexpo),  when it all comes down to it, if you are in the Italian wine trade, you must eventually make your way to Verona. It’s not as mellow as it was in 1984 (when there were only 6 – 6! – pavilions) but Italian wine has gotten bigger and more important in those 30+ years. Nothing (and no one) is perfect – introverts are often harsher arbiters of events with so many moving parts – because they want everything to be neat and orderly (they can also be a little OCD). But when you see another introvert struggling to get through another 15 hour day, it offers some small reassurance that we aren’t alone in this world – even though it might be an introvert’s penultimate wish to be so.


With huge thanks to another introvert - "grasshopper" - for his invaluable input with this post

          BMW 3 Series EV to be unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show – report   

It looks like BMW doesn’t want Tesla to have all the premium mid-size EV glory, with reports suggesting that a Model 3 competitor based on the 3 Series will debut in September at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. According to German publication Handeslblatt, the electric 3 Series variant will have a range of around 400km, which compares favourably to the Model 3’s range of 346km. Only time will tell whether BMW can match the Tesla’s 5.6-second 0-60mph (0-97km/h) time, or expected AU$50K price point. This could potentially mean that petrol variants of the new 3 Series – codenamed G20 – […]

          Comment on TSLA Stock: This Could Be Massive for Tesla Motors Inc by FreakieFreddie   
With their top two manufacturing executives leaving, that can only signal major problems they are having and will have. Musk has done a great job of down selling the issues to keep the dream alive, but alas, he may have bitten off more than he can chew. I hope I am wrong, but Tucker and DeLorean BOTH had great cars ahead of the times and the current status quo. Their ultimate failure, manufacturing.... delivering the product, something many investors still to this day take lightly.
          Comment on TSLA Stock: This Could Be Massive for Tesla Motors Inc by 1C5   
The Model S is a great car with soul stirring looks and performance. I think, if they had copied Ferrari's business model, they would be in a better place. Mr. Musk seems to be in a headlong rush to produce many thousands of cars. Do they really have the strength to do that? Now, two more top tier execs have resigned. Many are talking about the 400,000 pre-orders. I think it's interesting that so many have put down hard earned funds for a car they've never sat in ... a car they're never driven ... a car whose final form and quality is unknown ... a car from a company that is likely to survive, but whose existence is not at all guaranteed. This is called "faith." I think these potential buyers should know that their funds are not held in escrow but are used by Tesla. Essentially, they are "unsecured loans." If Tesla does not survive, their money is gone.

          A member of the hair nation picks the best songs ever   
Hair metal is a loose term, as loose as the women in your average hair metal video (this kind of wit is prevalent throughout this blog, so pat yourself on the back, wise reader, for choosing to read this).
But it's a term that usually garners at least a giggle from those who remember back in the day. These are the same giggles reserved for skyrocketing bangs, mullets, pink suit jackets with the sleeves rolled up, hoop earrings and thinking "Knight Rider" was a great show.
Hair metal deserves better. I'm here to give it to you. We shouldn't have to be embarrassed about it. Take me. I have some culture in my music tastes. I've played Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Mozart in symphony orchestras and Miles Davis in jazz bands. I've listened to many of the kings and queens of jazz and own many of their records. I have the box sets of Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan and Led Zeppelin.
And yet I'm an unabashed fan of metal. Metal forever and metal for life and whatnot. That includes hair metal, which, despite its wild success at its peak,  probably gets teased more than any other era of music except perhaps disco. And as a result I expect exactly two people to read this until the end, including me.
But here you go. The top 25 hair metal songs of all time.
I did have to leave out Hall Of Fame bands such as Iron Maiden, Dio, Dream Theater, Helloween, Queensryche, Metallica, Grim Reaper, Armored Saint, Judas Priest, Chastain (obscure band but one of my favorites, probably worth a blog post at some point) and Savatage because they're not really hair metal. They're not glam metal. They're not even hard rock. They are metal, and even if I preferred those bands growing up, that's not the point of this post. If there's any point to this post at all.
I tried not to repeat bands. That probably means leaving out a lot of great songs, but I was able to find a signature hit, at least in my opinion, from many key bands from the Spandex Era.
I also didn't put them in order. Maybe I should, but just to make this list is an honor. About as big an honor as a Grammy, I'm pretty sure.
Speaking of Grammy, er, grammar, I have made the bands plural even though a band is a single entity. It's much easier to read that way. I apologize in advance.
Let's get to it:
"Live Wire" By Motley Crue — Motley Crue was the first hard rock/metal/hair metal band I ever got into. My neighborhood kid friends brought me a tape one day, and I listened to it with a sense of wonder, excitement and fear. The tape was "Shout at the Devil." It seemed kinda evil, and I remember, late at night, becoming a little scared at what bringing this group into my life could mean (I was, unfortunately, kind of a deep kid who overthought far too many things. You MAY be able to see the resemblance to the adult me now.) In fairness, I was in like fifth grade, and this group at the time had just opened for Ozzy Osbourne, who bit the heads off doves and bats and drank their blood like lemonade (at least that's what I heard). My parents didn't take us to church, but that pentagram and the lyrics "Shout at the DEVIL" still made me worry that I was going to want to sacrifice small, cute animals after listening to the tape.
Of course, I also remember thinking Metallica, when I first heard "Ride The Lightning," was just various recordings of coyotes. Fortunately I got over my pansy ways. Motley Crue was my first step.
I discovered "Live Wire" later, when you fall in love with a band and check out its older albums. Motley Crue has had many great songs. The first track off their first album remains their best, especially the remix that helped take out some of the sludgy production of the original.
Shit, this may be a long post. That was a lot of description.
"Foolin'" By Def Leppard — Def Leppard's "Pyromania" was one of my first hair metal albums, after the Crue's "Shout at the Devil." I got it in a six-pack of tapes I got from those music clubs that gave you 12 for a penny if you agreed to buy six more at regular (inflated) prices and sacrifice small, cute animals. My other tapes were The Police, Duran Duran and a bunch I can't remember, so you can see where my mindset was at the time. I think "Pyromania" is a nearly perfect hard rock album, and it's by far Def Leppard's best. Def Leppard was at one time a band that sounded like AC/DC, only with catchier melodies and a better singer, and it's a shame that they castrated themselves a bit with "Hysteria," a fine record with far too many ballads and the most overplayed song in history, "Pour Some Sugar on Me." The fact that I've heard that song approximately 40 billion times and my parents' radio station (KUDL, pronounced "cuddle") could play it because it was soft enough and catchy enough not to offend the menopause crowd and yet hard enough to make the station seem "edgy" eliminates the song from my top 25. It was hard to pick between "Photograph" and "Rock of Ages" and this one, but I remember adoring this song when I was younger, and so it wins, even if the other two songs are probably better.
Yep, this post will be long. Sorry.
"You Shook Me (All Night Long) By AC/DC — The OTHER most overplayed song in history, besides "Sweet Home Alabama," and there are many other AC/DC tracks I personally like better, including "Hells Bells," "Highway to Hell" and "It's A Long Way To The Top," but I believed this was the one song I could not leave off the list regardless of my personal feelings for it. It's proof that "hair metal" is a loose term because these guys were pretty much the OPPOSITE of a hair metal band. They were ugly guys who dressed like factory workers, save for Angus, who wore a schoolboy outfit that would probably get him arrested if he went anywhere but a concert hall. Yet this song helped kick off the catchy, radio-friendly-yet-hard-edged hair metal era because of its wild success. Basically every band tried to copy it. The band also featured a smoking hot blonde in the video. I can STILL see her riding that mechanical horse. 
As an aside, KISS' "Rock and Roll All Nite," which compares favorably with this song in many ways (classic band, overplayed song loved by everyone, catchy as hell), is NOT on the list. It's a great song, but it's really not from the era. And the hair metal era, which boosted the careers of many older bands that actually got their start in the 70s (such as the Scorpions, Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, AC/DC and perhaps even Judas Priest and Iron Maiden) almost destroyed KISS. The band took off its makeup and made mostly forgettable records filled with songs like "Crazy Crazy Nights" and "God Gave Rock and Roll To You" that really sounded like a desperate uncle trying to fit in at one of his nephew's fun parties. Still...
"Heaven's On Fire" By KISS — This song was a glorious exception. It's my favorite song by KISS, and I really do love KISS. It's stupid as hell but even catchier.
"We're Not Gonna Take It" By Twisted Sister — I was trying to think of perhaps the worst hair metal band in the era simply in terms of ability. I came up with Krokus, Danger Danger and Britney Fox, but I still think Twisted Sister was probably the worst. "Stay Hungry" sounds as if it was played by a bunch of fifth-graders. And yet it's not only a good record, it's a classic. Why? The power of songwriting. Dee Snider was simply a great songwriter. He wrote "I Wanna Rock" and "Stay Hungry" and "The Price," and he wrote this insanely catchy number too, filled with attitude and one of the best choruses ever for a rock song. My DAD liked this one for God's sake. Dee was also a great metal singer. He didn't resort to the "balls in a vice" falsetto that so many other singers had to abuse to fit in. They had a good look, and their videos were hilarious. They didn't take themselves too seriously, a lesson I wish more metal bands learned.
"Rock Me" by Great White — A nightclub fire, as horrible as it was, shouldn't mean we overlook this band. Yes, Great White was a ripoff of many better classic rock bands, and yes this song took pieces of a half-dozen Led Zeppelin songs and glued them together, but that still makes for a great song. This band was a bit more no-nonsense than most in the era and would have fit comfortably in the 70s. It has a solid greatest-hits collection, including three off "Once Bitten," the band's biggest album, and that's far more than most hair metal bands. I also liked "Desert Moon" a lot.
"Rock You Like A Hurricane" by The Scorpions — The Scorpions are proof that hair metal or pop metal could be really good if a great band played it and wrote it. The Scorpions didn't need the hair metal era to be popular, though there's no doubt they benefitted from it, and here's exhibit A: This song is one of the best songs of the 80s, with perhaps the best opening riff of all the hair metal songs. It's so simple, too: Da-da-da, dudu, dududa, dadaaa. It's also heavier than you remember, and the video is almost kinda scary, not just the band writhing around a hot girl. The centerpiece from "Love At First Sting," a classic album. The Scorpions weren't flashy, attractive guys, but they had at least a dozen great songs, were a great live band (they were the best, I thought, when I saw "Monsters of Rock" with Van Halen and Metallica) and deserve a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"Out of Love" by Blue Murder — Who? Yeah, I know. Blue Murder was a trio led by John Sykes, who actually played guitar on Whitesnake's monster album, not the pretty boys in the videos. This album shows just what a good guitarist (and singer) he was, and it, quite frankly, rocked. This is a sappy ballad, but it's probably my favorite hair ballad ("Still Loving You" and "Home Sweet Home" are the only ones that come close; I really wasn't much of a fan of ballads). This band put out two albums (that I know of), but the self-titled one, the debut, is still worth owning.
"Modern Day Cowboy" by Tesla — Tesla opened for Def Leppard on the Hysteria tour, and it was one of those glorious, rare times when I got my socks knocked off by a band I didn't know. They kicked Leppard's butt, and I bought the album the next day. It's still one of my favorites, and it ranks up there with "Appetite for Destruction" as a debut album by a hard rock band. This is the best track on an album full of great ones, including "Little Suzy" and "Comin' Atcha Live".
"Down Deep Into The Pain" by Stevie Vai — Marginal hair metal, but Vai played on Whitesnake's "Slip of the Tongue" and David Lee Roth's debut and therefore had a big role in the hair metal era. This is Devin Townsend's debut as well, as far as I can tell, and he's a big name in metal today. I always liked Vai's "The Audience Is Listening" too.
"Lights of Heaven" by Joe Satriani — Speaking of instrumental guitarists, here's the best, ever. He performed in this era, so I put him here. Satriani is famous for "Surfing with the Alien," but I think the album that spawned this track is better, and this is his best song.
"Wild Child" by W.A.S.P. — I love W.A.S.P. Blackie Lawless was a strange dude, almost too strange, as the band's antics and acting as Tipper Gore's thorn overshadowed the fact that Lawless not only had a terrific metal voice, he wrote a TON of catchy, hard tunes. This is my favorite track, but there are many other great ones, including a song, "Helldorado," that the band released in 1999 (!).
"Panama" by Van Halen — One of my best friends who enjoys this kind of music and is probably the biggest Rush fan ever says Van Halen was a hair band. I have passionately disagreed, but I'll give him this point: "1984" was basically a hair metal album, and so I've included what I think was the best track here. Man, "1984" was a great album: "Jump," "Hot For Teacher," "I'll Wait" and this song. Was "1984" Van Halen's best album? I think so.
"Cherry Pie" by Warrant — I was not a fan of Warrant, just like I wasn't a fan of many of the marginal glam hair bands that played pop metal more watered down than a free casino drink. But Warrant redeemed itself with this outrageous, horrible hunk of cheese that just happens to feature one of the catchiest choruses in the history of hair metal. One of the best videos, too. I mean, at one point, the band hoses down the incredibly hot blonde. You know, cause she's SO HOT. Get it? I thought you might.
P.S. I just watched the video. Yeah, it holds up even less than I thought. I really didn't think that was cool at one point, did I?
"In My Dreams" by Dokken — If you overlook the fact that magazines loved to focus on the fact that George Lynch and Don Dokken hated each other, and if you maybe ignore the fact that Don Dokken had the personality of a moldy sponge, you'd be left with a pretty damn good hair metal band. Dokken was a terrible live band. You really could see why the guys hated each other, as there was no chemistry at all. Don, who I think was a lot older than he let on, came out for Dokken's Monsters of Rock gig, the same one I saw in Kansas City, and said "Hey, I smell some DOOOOOBAGE," and it went downhill from there.
Even so, Jeff Pilson, the bass player, could sing, Don had a good hair metal voice and Lynch could really play. They also wrote some great songs. They would have a nice greatest hits collection. "Kiss of Death" is a close second.
"Youth Gone Wild" by Skid Row — Skid Row holds a special spot somewhere in my cold metal heart not only for this killer, killer, killer song but for the fact that the band was set up to have a nice, long, cheesy career. The opening track of their debut was "Big Guns," a song about a woman's...never mind. Anyway, the band followed up with a second album, and it was the heaviest I'd ever heard from a supposed hair metal band. Seriously, some pretty fierce power metal bands couldn't match that guitar crunch, and Bach could always scream with the best of them. I'm convinced it destroyed their career, but I admire them for sticking to their roots and not putting out a featherweight product because that's what the label (and unfortunately probably the public) wanted.
"The Final Countdown" by Europe — Abused by many sports teams now, this song featured the best keyboard riff in a hair metal song, like, ever. It's a good example of a riff really acting as the chorus, since there wasn't much of a chorus. They just sang the song's name over that sweet riff a few times. It worked, just as it did for "Layla." Unbelievably, Europe, not a great band by any stretch, did have another great song, this one on their first album, called "Wings of Tomorrow." Check it out.
• "All We Are" by Warlock — Warlock was heavier than most hair metal bands, but I still count it because the video for this song is candy-corn corny. Here's a secret: I really have a thing for metal chicks, and Doro was the metalist chickiest of all. Her pipes were as amazing as her blonde hair that went down to her waist.
"Addicted to that Rush" by Mr. Big — Mr. Big hit it big with "Be With You," a pretty awful hair metal ballad that sounded like a ripoff of "More Than Words," Extreme's big one (which is a much better song, but it won't make this list either).  But this song leads off their lesser-known debut album, and it's a shredder, something Racer X might have played (and I just looked it up, and sure enough, the band's guitarist, Paul Gilbert, played in it). Mr. Big also had Billy Sheehan and therefore had more chops in the cushions of their couch than even most power metal bands.
"Cryin' in the Rain" by Whitesnake — I was a bigger fan of Whitesnake than the band probably deserved, though David Coverdale could really sing, and they had some good songs even before the monster self-titled album was released ("Slide It In," "Slow 'N' Easy" and "Love Ain't No Stranger" are three of the best). Yes, this album had many whoppers, but I always thought "Still of the Night" was too much of a Zep rip-off, and I never really forgave Whitesnake for releasing a remixed, poppier version of "Here I Go Again." So this is my pick, which features an incredible solo by John Sykes and some tour-de-force vocals from Coverdale. I really would have liked to have seen Tawny slither (see what I did there?) to this one. Whitesnake gets a lot of derision these days, and I have two theories as to why. The first is simple: The band name sucks. The second, I think, comes from the fact that many people love to make fun of this era, as I've said before. I can't blame them. This era, like Disco, really makes you wonder what the fuck we were all thinking. But like Disco, this era put out a lot of great music that's unfairly judged because of all the costumes and hair and overall silliness. Whitesnake absorbs quite a bit of that today because they weren't quite Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Guns and Roses or Motley Crue, bands that people still love today without shame. But Whitesnake was bigger than most other bands such as Quiet Riot, Cinderella and probably even Ratt. They already were a fairly established band when "Whitesnake" was released, and that album sold millions and was huge. HUGE. So people remember them as much as Def Leppard, but they don't carry the same nostalgia as Leppard does and therefore people don't mind throwing darts their way. Whitesnake is probably the Village People of the hair metal era. We can be honest, though: Rudy Sarzo probably didn't need to lick the neck of his guitar in those videos quite that much either.
P.S. After Tawny kinda wigged out and beat up her baseball husband, it took away a bit of the luster of her on that car, didn't it? Bowling For Soup's "1985" video nailed the parody.
"Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns and Roses — I honestly couldn't decide between this one and "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Paradise City" and "Rocket Queen" and...I think you get the point. What an amazing album. It still holds up today: Pull out the CD (oh don't lie, you do TOO still have it) and give it a whirl. I chose this song because Slash's solo is one of the best on any song, ever. Slash was hair metal's Jimmie Page, a guitarist who could play solos that matched the songs rather than tossing some fast scales and tricks around for 30 seconds.
"Cum On Feel The Noize" by Quiet Riot — Yeah, it's a cover, but really, does anyone associate Slade with this song? (Slade had a big hit of its own. Remember "Run Runaway"? I do.) Quiet Riot proved it could write their own song with "Metal Health," but this by far their best single. Even the verses sounded as good as the chorus. I remember seeing them on the TV show "Solid Gold," and to their credit, they actually chose to play their song live, rather than just lip synch it like 95 percent of all the other groups.
"You Give Love A Bad Name" by Bon Jovi — I didn't really get Bon Jovi, even if I thought "Runaway" was a good song. Bon Jovi seemed like a bunch of pretty boys that had zero good songs (besides "Runaway"), and yet all these girls wore their shirts and thought Jon Bon Jovi was dreamy. Then I heard this song and instantly loved it, and I could not BELIEVE it was Bon Jovi. So I sighed, bought the album, popped in the cassette and...wow, ticked off the hits, one by one. Sure enough, "Livin' On A Prayer," "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "Never Say Goodbye" (yuck) followed. Classic record. Easily one of the best from the era, and eventually that alone will put this band in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one day. I was sorely tempted to put "Livin' On A Prayer" in this list too but I wanted to follow my rule.
I find it interesting that this band still seems to have major credibility. I realize Motley Crue and Def Leppard still tour, but I don't think there's any doubt that most people who go to those shows are there to see them sing their classic hits. Most other hair metal bands only tour small clubs or package themselves with other hair metal bands to land bigger concerts. But Bon Jovi is still seen as more than a nostalgia act and draws big crowds on its own. It had a big hit, "It's My Life," many years after this era (even though the song sounded like it came from the band's hair metal days).
"Prime Mover" by Zodiac Mindwarp — What a name, right? Sometimes a band that has no business even making a record drinks some really good gin or smokes a magic mushroom and writes an incredible song that is far catchier than it should be. This is that song, a messy masterpiece that even manages to avoid many of the trappings of the hair metal era and therefore could honestly be on the radio today without too many giggles.
"Round and Round" by Ratt — If you forced me to pick a favorite song out of this whole list, this might be it. There's some serious nostalgia here, as this was the first hair metal song that truly hooked me after I discovered Motley Crue and became more comfortable with listening to heavy metal, and the video STILL cracks me up. But it's still an incredible riff, terrific chorus and a great duel guitar solo. Perfect song. Ratt, like W.A.S.P., was a touch underrated. They had almost as good a catalogue as Def Leppard. Seriously. "Lay It Down" is another monster, and there are a dozen others, like "Way Cool Jr.," "Wanted Man" and "You're In Love." But Ratt never had one of those sappy ballads that drew in the girls, and the guys in the band had a bit of a creepy look to them. It seemed to me only the more serious hardcore metal chicks (and I dated a couple) really liked Ratt, whereas everyone, even the cheerleaders, liked Def Leppard.
Whatever. That's what made me like Ratt even more.

Unlike most manufacturers, Lamborghini hasn't jumped on the EV bandwagon yet, nor has it said anything about another SUV, apart from the Urus, but for argument's sake, let's just assume that at some point in the future it does decide to offer a Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace rival.

          (Video) The Electric Rise and Fall of Nikola Tesla   


Source: Truth Theory | by Luke Miller

In this talk Magician Marco Tempest uses a pop up book to describe the electric rise and fall of Nikola Tesla. Combining projection mapping and a pop-up book, Tempest tells a visually arresting story about Nikola Tesla — called "the greatest geek who ever lived" — from his triumphant invention of alternating current to his penniless last days.

          Holy Spirituality with Pine Cone: Gender Half-life Motif   
This Story Might Change Your Beliefs!

https://youtu.be/uSv3UfRgcVg



“Good Morning Vietnam” translates Robin Williams MPD to my version of “Good Morning Holy Spirit” motive to set the standard for the NDE Day of War between the Karmic-sexes. Amazing clues survive in spite of ourselves, right out in front of our Duality eyes, yet without Holy Spirit Humor memory, anyone would be foolish to reveal such a Truth of Love in the Spirit of forgiving ONENESS Disappearance. I feel apparent~p.p. bamboozled and woman/man half-life discombobulated to their Love-denied half-life Karmic-suffering extreme.

A woman half-life and a man half-life to err is human-marriage is, not only when two wrongs don’t make it right, but doesn’t come close to how to forgive, Divine the many Karmic-gender half-lives it takes, to deny so many physical-role timelines it take to mess up a half-life child-apple that never Karmic-falls far from, hardly any real half-life Love at all. 1/2 life plus 1/2 life in a physical-role masala in a long line of spiced up polarizations that come with each gender half-life played, and being-played sting in the Illusion of Timelines on ad infinitum.

“Good Morning Holy Spirit” wakes up the whole Universe inside me on the bed inside me too, not just the man within all the women, and the woman within all the men lifetimes of half-life, after half-life Love-divided Karmic role-reversal jealous rage motive, to keep proving we’re all wrong. I like to imagine our Gender half-life Motif itself, reveals our no-Love-at-all 3 dimensional DNA motive signature. How can one gender half-life survivor ever, really Love, reveals how can any half-assed half alive Mortal, really Love like, only an Immortal can let go enough, to Love like no-bodies Karmic-business.

Ascension upgrades physical-role Karmic divisive-gender half-life anti-Love undead lifetime low light freakuency vibration timelines, yet these Pulsing Agarthan new energies are, only a taste of what’s to come later, when they blast this trite-seeming startling, none-the-less, Bacon-beacon half-life Police-refresh conflagration into Ascension Boom Boom, with a Boom for each Bang-less gender Karmic-disappearance. Look up twin flame on you tube, or any search engine, and not one mention of the ‘flame-focus’ sacrificing gender altogether into Delight appears, like a gender-moth to the flame(POOF) reveals, just how religious-gender remains physically addicted to control, even this possible Spiritual ONENESS clue about, maybe Love is, still gender half-life, always looking for impossible unrequited 3d Duality DNA Motif-lovers?

Many men half-lives, and many women half-lives greet Holy Spirit in my Vietnam-free bed in the morning, just like many men half-lives, and many women half-lives mirror many male alters, and many female alters inside too, Unifies writing these few lyrics altogether in a Celestial Grand~harmony of Immortal Love Ascension Joy. When we, only think positive, we suppress any negative energy down deeper in our unconscious minds, that always appears later like radioactive mudd leaks out in psychoses, neuroses, and genocidal acting out, all the while our conscious weaker-minds pretend everything is OK, while we suffer, more than any gender half-life anti-lover, that wouldn’t say double-D Cop Donut-holes sshhh-censure it, if their mouth was full of it.

I am almost finished playing big-stakes marbles here, and I want to gather up my New doubleheader winner stash, and leave this game area, before we all get our jealous-rage dander up, however even though there are a lot more obvious clues about this Paradigm, that deem mentioning, a little relief may be in order to, at least check in, before leaving gender motives to try to Love completely in the Dark of Mother Mafia Lurch minions. Mannn… does it ever smell like woe of man in here now!

Let’s switch over any jealous 3d rage ridicule onto the religious freaks that marry our children for us, by repenting together that we send our children in the front door of our churches, which are the back doors of our malicious genocidal Satanic Mafia government bureaucrats, and like us, their left hand Karmic half-lives, never know what their other-hand Karmic half-lives are doing leading up to continual One-a-day child-sacrifice Laughing-disease Kuru vitamins. Police call child protective services who kidnap children to donate them to the cannibal cause, so when both, and each do their paper work to bury kids under pile-of-shit slinging closed files, no Mortal half-life can swallow what they do, any more than any Mortal can swallow what goes on behind the 3d scenes in this anti-love Gender Half-life Motif.

My motive to express what we, all deny from so much regular half-life trauma-base mind-control isn’t to sell any smelly fish at the end of a long hot day on ICE motives to migrate the child-sacrifice out of whole remote villages, but to enhance anyone’s desire to forgive the, other gender in our, own half-life projected physical Illusions, so we can get ready to stop buying religious crap, that holds onto a physical Savior that, also had a Mother for the female anti-love gender half-life to un-blame.

See how many clues hit me in the morning greeting Today? Thank you Holy Spirit for experiencing forgiveness miracles working through, and for me, and a special big “Good Morning Holy Spirit” for helping me add a little Spirit humor so I would be able to express a little bit of what I Ascension-realize so Tesla free~energy far. This One really shakes, all the bullshit off the outside physical-roles, that I depended on to justify my need to punish myself, more for that same degree of denied conscious positive thinking, that buried itself in my unconscious guilty motives, just to keep co-creating more suffering half-life Karma.

About the Author

Introduction:

I “Love” to Admit it 11/22/16

I “Love" to admit it, but I have been captivated by the constant Blackmail battering of this Child-sacrificing malevolent World, so that I ‘want’ to surrender to Holy Spirit, by turning within, as a new humble priority. Sex-slavery robbed me of my soul, as a child, yet once I realized everything difficult, that happens enhances my devotion to turn even, more within ONENESS Spirit Conscience forgiveness nurturing, instead.

I fought like Hell to work, very hard for Money to, barely survive, but after a few years of meditation, and forgiveness prayers to Holy Spirit, to do the difficult forgiveness of others, as myself, more money came to me from Spirit, right through other benevolent Sources, than I ever, even knew about, before surrender. I “Love” to admit that Money doesn’t come from hard work, or social-norm Blackmail, but comes from Source, just like everything else, we need to ‘thrive’, instead of, ‘barely survive’ in addiction to this Child-sacrificing malevolent World.

After losing connection to my, own Conscience, I have become a kinder feeling empath, and a constant seeming mistaken threat to others suffering, just like me, before I sat down, closed my eyes, and meditated my suffering ass off. Like kindness comes from within Spirit devotion, so too, does being able to feel again, without letting those ephemeral duties control my reactive behaviors any more. Money, kindness, and feelings come from turning within, to ask for help to forgive all my captors that, still suffer much tortuous regret for forcing me, to do things out of fear, that no Child would, ordinarily want to do.

After annihilation traumas of the lower fourth dimensional ‘murky unkind’, everything outside triggered my reaction to live in the past swamp, ‘as if’, so, as I became more addicted to the outside Illusion of, more fear piled up onto, more traumas, I “Love” to admit that, with a gift of desperation, I became a, very willing candidate to surrender to something else, besides this unholy smelling foul-World of sulfur-predator crap. Now I see, all suffering evidence, as a gift from ONENESS to have compassion, and Mercy for, all who, still haven’t turned within to receive Money out of nowhere, and become a kinder feeling person, instead.

I am more sensitive to Blackmail than I have, ever realized, and even that’s a gift now, because I used to blame myself, ‘as if’, all evil was my fault, but NOTHING can, ever be further from the Truth. I was a beautiful innocent Child, and I, still am, inside, no matter what I used to think, and no matter what constant Blackmail, still wants to make me feel that lost-soul way. Blackmail is a constant battering here in Karmic Hologram miming-mirror Earth Paradigm, and who knew; before I turned within, where enlightening compassion makes me feel like a ‘kind kid’ with pocket treasures full of Sparkling Golden innocent-kaleidoscope perceptions again?

When I surrendered to Holy Spirit, Money was the furthest thing from my new mind of Delight, and I, certainly was convinced, that I would, never become a kinder feeling empath, ever again. Getting old had become a ‘given’, but turning within has made, even gettin-gold a ‘variable’ out of my getting younger now, every time Holy Spirit welcomes me inside, where eternal youth commands, all kinder feeling empathic Mountain Top kindergarteners.

Money, Holy Spirit, my soul, kinder feeling empath, forgiveness, my Conscience, compassion, Mercy, my Inner Child Spirit, eternal youth, the willingness to face outside Blackmail with a new motive to serve, with the, very “Love” that I have to admit, all these Wonderful gifts from within nurturing, that replaces any more outside need for what, best can be defined as needy-ransom soul-selling Blackmail=Burnout.

          Comment on Goldman Sachs Provides a Bearish Picture on Tesla Inc (TSLA) as All Eyes on Model 3 Production by joeinslw   
Goldman Sachs, did you mean Goldman Sucks? What do they know about EV"s (which stands for Electric Vehicles in case you didn't know) I am sick and tired of reading these predictions that aren't true, or way off base. Not to long ago when tsla was 160.00 per share, there was someone who said Tesla Motors a very bad company & a very bad investment, and put a sell rating on Tesla, and I said that was a "Cheap Shot" I still feel that way with people who make snap predictions without knowing all the real facts, and they can't know all the facts. It's well known that the CEO Mr. Elon Musk keeps many of his decisions including information about Tesla close, (as they say close to the vest) and yet people still make predictions that turn out to be completely wrong, and continue to be wrong for the last five years. These wrong predictions are what makes Tesla Motors a risky investment, I have found it to be just the opposite because of these wrong predictions. I have been seeing, and reading about these predictions for the last 5-6 years, nothing has changed they continue to make wrong predictions which is doing a DIS-service to many investors, or who would be investors, but because of these erroneous comments, they shy away, or worse become short sellers because they are convinced that Tesla Motors will fail, go out of business, and screw all their long & loyal investors. Short sellers and others who don't know what Americans want, continue to bash Tesla Motors they fail to see that this CEO Mr. Musk will not allow that to happen. Several years ago when Tesla was just getting started they did get into some serious financial trouble, but the saving grace was Mr. Musk himself, he put his hand into his own pocket, and saved the company, how many company CEO's do you know that would use their own personal cash to do that? The fact that GM crushed all of the leased EV1's they made in 1999 because they supported fossil fueled cars instead is never published, never talked about in any circles, auto magazines, or publications. Nobody seems to care about what Americans or the World wants, and what they want are Electric Cars that make sense, use less energy, don't have the maintenance schedule that fossil fueled cars require, in one word that made the United States a great country, is freedom, but also....choice...

          Esperimenti Scientifici Non Autorizzati    

Se la scienza e il progresso tecnologico possono salvarci dalla schiavitù del petrolio, nel campo delle nuove energie siamo giunti a un punto di stallo. Da questa situazione trae profitto l’élite delle multinazionali dei carburanti fossili e del nucleare sporco.

Basterebbe solo una nuova scoperta, una singola invenzione per liberare i popoli dallo sfruttamento delle multinazionali.
Tuttavia, ogni volta che uno scienziato annuncia di avere trovato la soluzione ai nostri problemi energetici, viene accusato di frode scientifica e allontanato dal suo incarico come un ciarlatano.

Per una strana “teoria delle coincidenze”, fino a oggi è sempre andata così,

ma alcune scoperte scomode, e gli esperimenti che le dimostrano,

sono riproducibili da tutti, in casa e a basso costo.

Utilizzando tecnologie non riconosciute dalla scienza ufficiale, questa guida pratica spiega come far levitare un oggetto violando le attuali leggi della fisica, come riprodurre un piccolo sole (fusione nucleare) in un barattolo della marmellata, come provocare la trasmutazione della materia, come convertire la normale elettricità in una nuova forma di energia, come creare un magnete permanente molto speciale e altro ancora.

Chiunque sappia solo svitare una lampadina o premere un interruttore potrà finalmente assistere a fenomeni straordinari di cui probabilmente non ha mai neppure mai sentito parlare...

Prefazione di "Esperimenti Scientifici Non Autorizzati"

Dopo gli studi umanistici e quelli di giurisprudenza, tutte le mie conoscenze sulla fìsica applicata consistevano nel premere un interruttore, infilare una spina nella presa di corrente e sostituire una lampadina.

L'istinto però mi ha portato a rifiutare i limiti imposti da un sistema d'istruzione a compartimenti stagni e a imbattermi nella fisica estrema.

Oggi l'istinto mi spinge a ribellarmi al tipo di scienza e di società che vedo, perché, come affermò lo scienziato Nikola Tesla:

"L'istinto è qualcosa che va oltre la conoscenza.
Noi abbiamo, senza ombra di dubbio, delle fibre più sottili che ci permettono di percepire le verità quando la deduzione logica o qualsiasi altro impulso cerebrale volontario sembrano fallire".

Questo volume è dedicato a tutti coloro che sentono la necessità di verificare di persona l'esistenza di alcune "anomalie" della fisica oggi completamente censurate o interpretate secondo comodo dalla teoria dominante.

Dalla quarta di copertina

Quando da una teoria scientifica dipende l'intero establishment economico, nessuno può dirsi al di sopra di ogni sospetto e chi ha raggiunto questa consapevolezza sa che per liberare la scienza e il progresso dalla logica del profitto è necessaria una rivoluzione che parta dal basso, da tutti noi....

Chiunque si cimenti nello studio o nell'insegnamento scientifico (docenti accademici, ricercatori, studenti o dilettanti) dovrebbe quindi iniziare a verificare personalmente l'esistenza di alcuni fenomeni fisici negati, sminuiti o interpretati secondo convenienza dalla scienza ufficiale.

Per tale ragione ho dato alla luce una sorta di manuale pratico, interamente dedicato a esperti e dilettanti, che spiega, passo dopo passo, in modo semplice e chiaro, come riprodurre in casa alcuni fenomeni fisici rimasti un tabù del mondo accademico.

Ho infatti raccolto il knowhow per toccare con mano e ricostruire a basso costo la tecnologia della misteriosa energia radiante di Nikola Tesla, della trasmutazione della materia a debole energia (fusione fredda), degli effetti antigravitazionali e molto altro ancora.

In attesa che avvenga l'auspicata rivoluzione scientifica e spirituale dell'uomo, intendo condividere con i miei lettori i risultati di anni di sperimentazione personale: un'avventura ai confini della conoscenza.

          Tesla Model 3: el domingo habrá un nuevo anuncio sobre su lanzamiento   
tesla-model-3-lanzamiento-201737444_2.jp

El Tesla Model 3 está ya muy cerca.

Por el momento, la única fecha concreta que tenemos es el 31 de julio. Antes de ese día, en teoría comenzarán las entregas de los primeros Tesla Model 3, tal y como prometían los responsables de la marca tiempo atrás, aunque hasta ahora no ha precisado todavía ni el día exacto ni muchas de las características del modelo. Por lo que no sabemos precisar que anunciará Tesla este domingo.

Como es habitual en Elon Musk, en su tweet se ha limitado a dar solo datos o declaraciones que puedan levantar expectación, lo que genera más artículos y por tanto presencia en los medios para la marca y el modelo. Pero no ha sido demasiado específico con respecto a las novedades que veremos el domingo. Como es habitual, buena estrategia por parte de Musk.

tesla-model-3-lanzamiento-201737444_3.jp

El Tesla Model 3 llegará a sus primeros clientes antes de que acabe julio.

En los últimos meses hemos hablado largo y tendido sobre el desarrollo y lanzamiento del nuevo modelo, tanto del extraño plan de desarrollo que ha tenido como de la peculiar estrategia de entrega que implementará la marca, ya que primeramente entregará unidades del nuevo modelo a sus empleados, tanto de Tesla como de SpaceX, las empresas de Musk.

Esto se debe a la voluntad de la compañía de poner a prueba esos primeros ejemplares, de manera que sean los propios empleados los que puedan detectar fallos prematuros y que por tanto, puedan informar antes a la compañía, y así esta, responder con premura a estos problemas de juventud del modelo, sin necesidad de generar mala prensa o enfadar a los clientes.

Tendremos que esperar al próximo domingo para saber qué novedades desvelará Tesla. Esperamos que llegado ya el mes de julio, sean también confirmados todos los detalles que aún están en el tintero, como la confirmación de los detalles de precios y especificaciones, o la activación del configurador del modelo.

          Kommentar zu Deutscher Analyst: Traditionelle Autohersteller gewähren Tesla ein Fast-Monopol bei E-Autos von Melone   
Auch hier ist die Frage, wie lange das noch so ist. Auf Dauer müssen sie selbst Fabriken bauen oder, und da scheinen sie schon dabei zu sein, lukrative Verträge mit Zulieferern aushandeln. Ich befürchte, dass sich die ganzen Dinge, die andere Hersteller bisher zurückhalten, ähnlich wie die ganzen Nachteile von Elektroautos bald in Luft auflösen. Dann gäbe es endlich mal Wettbewerb. Die Frage ist dann nur, an welchem Punkt Tesla Ihnen dann noch voraus sein kann. Solarziegel werden wohl nicht reichen.

          Kommentar zu Australien: Solar-Installateur sieht stark steigende Nachfrage nach Batteriespeichern von PV-Berlin   
Ist das lustig, den Powerwall 2 gibt es in der Realität in D. nicht und wenn er dann mal kommen sollte, dann als Einfallspinsel mit einer Phase. richtig geil, wie man mit einer Phase den nutzen soll (ca. 13 kWh) . daher ist es unwahrscheinlich, dass die gewerblichen Kunden in Australien ihr großes Interesse in reale Bestellungen wandeln werden. Die Home Lösungen sind nur US tauglich (110 V eine Phase) für den 'kümmerlichen' Rest der Welt, ist der PW 2 eine Fiktion eines Versprechens. es wäre super, wenn man den Speicher richtigen E-Unternehmen zur Verfügung stellen würde. Eine Siemens AG hat so viele Kunden, mit noch mehr Anwendungen, die sie von Blei (Klimaanlage notwendig) umstellen könnte, dass die F1 prächtig ausgelastet wird. Die Groß Lösungen, bekommt ja Tesla hin, aber für die Masse (extreme Anpassungen an die regionalen Netze notwendig) ist Tesla total überfordert.

          Signs point to 12th Crown - or do they??   
As a child of the eighties, I grew up amidst the longest drought on record between Triple Crown winners but never waned in my passion for thoroughbred racing. Thanks in large part to living within an hour's drive to historic Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas and having a father involved in a racing partnership with several horses to keep me interested. Also being a pre-generation x'er, I grew up listening to bands such as Tesla, whose song "Signs" keeps coming to my mind in thinking about the 2012 Belmont Stakes. (Although, I must point out that the song was originally cut in 1970 by Five Man Electrical Band and written by Les Emmerson, but I digress.)
 
Original lyrics follows..
 
Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
Blocking up the scenery, breaking my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

Oh but say now, "Mister, can't you read?
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't watch, no you can't eat
You ain't supposed to be here"

Why would I think this song applies to I'll Have Another and his attempt at racing immortality?  Consider these "signs"...
 
1) There have been 11 Triple Crown winners to date but also 11 horses have failed in their final attempt since Affirmed last completed the hat trick back in 1978. So it was very fitting today when IHA drew post #11.
 
2) Just as our racing community was expecting a Triple Crown winner to be the salvation of a sport in such need of a hero after the drugs, declining soundness and welfare of the horse, and jurisdictional infighting over casinos, trainer Doug O'Neil was convicted of a repeat drug violation in 2010 from California the week prior to his horse's date with destiny. And after Rick Dutrow's numerous racing violations exposed prior to Big Brown's shocking DNF in the 2008 Belmont Stakes, many out there will be rooting against this horse come Saturday. Casual observers may also assume this was a "fixed" horse, regardless of the extensive security and quarantine to ensure that no starters will be tampered with for 72 hours prior to the race.
 
3) In the "You ain't supposed to be here" category, the scant $11,000 IHA sold for as a yearling and the $35,000 he was flipped for ("pinhooked" in racing parlance) as a two year-old in training is supposed to get you a solid claimer or perhaps even an allowance caliber horse if you're lucky. In no circumstance should this amount lead to a Triple Crown winner who's syndicated value could easily reach $50 million. Heck, even "the Slew" (TC winner in 1977) sold for more than that at $17,500 thirty-five years ago and he was known as one of the greatest bargains of all time. With inflation of the thoroughbred market, this amount would be closer to 100K in today's dollars, not 10% of that amount. Had haughty sire Bernardini produced such a foal to sweep the Triple Crown we would think it foreseeable as well as acceptable. But for the winner's sire to be so far down the lineage (a great-grandson) of Mr. Prospector who only registered one Grade I victory in his racing career and have a girly name like Flower Alley? Really... c'mon!!
 
4) Consider all the similarities between I'll Have Another and 2004 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, Smarty Jones - who was also thought to be a shoe-in leading into the Test of Champions. Both horses descend from the Mr. Prospector male family and have a stalking style of running, suited nicely for the typical Belmont Stakes. Both were unbeaten in their three year-old campaign but still didn't get the respect they probably deserved heading into Kentucky (although Smarty did go off favored by post-time). Both had strong regional affiliations and support - with Smarty it was his cult following from Philly Park and Oaklawn Park and with IHA it's the west coast pride of team O'Neil/Reddam who are unabashed Californians. Both horses wrangled with high quality speedballs in the Derby-Preakness (Lion Heart and Bodemeister, respectively) who bowed out for the 12 furlong Belmont Stakes. Both had an old Derby foe who sat out the Preakness while waiting for them in the Belmont Stakes. For Smarty Jones that foe was Birdstone and with IHA it's both Dullahan and Union Rags (he and Birdstone both were precocious juveniles winning the Champagne Stakes). And the final yet perhaps most relevant similarity, both have jockeys who were untested in classic races but put in superb rides the first two legs heading into Big Sandy. I was present in Elmont, NY for Stewart Elliott's ride aboard Smarty and I still believe that he got the horse beat by moving too soon on that day. Within a few days we will know if the happy-go-lucky Mario Gutierrez will still be grinning and tearing up with relief or if those tears turn to sorrow.
 
5) Finally, how ironic is it that England's Queen Elizabeth (a huge thoroughbred racing fan and owner who attended the Epsom Derby just this weekend) is celebrating her 60 years under the "Crown" in the same week American racing has their most important moment in nearly 40 years?

"And the sign says, you gotta have a membership card to get inside." That is exactly what the eleven preceding members of the Triple Crown fraternity are sorting out right about now. Will I'll Have Another hear his name announced as the white smoke billows out of Belmont Park's grandstand around 5:35 central time on Saturday or will the hopes and dreams for our 12th Crown go down in flames at the hooves of Dullahan or Union Rags? It all depends on how you interpret the signs.

Used Car Sales to Keep Dealers Afloat During New Vehicle Sales Slide Despite a drop in the sales of new vehicles during the first half of 2017, American car dealerships are still expected to sell more cars and trucks this year thanks to robust demand for used vehicles, which indicates the auto industry is nowhere near slipping into a recession.
GM Confirms, Sales Drop This Year Is Mostly Fleets; Retail Sales Intact “We have been very purposefully reducing our daily rental business, and we have continued to do that this year,” GM CFO Chuck Stevens said in a conference call earlier this week. “The retail side of the business continues to be strong.”

          The Important Lesson From Record 560 Miles In A Tesla Model S 100D   

A new "hypermiling" record for production electric vehicles has been set by a pair from Belgium, using a Tesla Model S 100D. The duo in question, Steven Peeters and Joeri Cools, managed to squeeze 560 miles (901 kilometers) out of the Tesla Model S 100D in question, by traveling at an average of 24 miles per hour (39 km/h) for right around 24 hours. Before we go further about the short-term news, there's a very important lesson to be learned and shared (again) regarding this record and how it relates to the practicality of EV life today

          Opinion: how extreme will the Porsche 911 GT2 RS be?   
Porsche 911 GT2 RS
Porsche 911 GT2 RS
The 911 GT2 RS has made its debut at Goodwood, and it's time for Porsche to let its hair down

The previous GT2 RS came with a Ludicrous Mode even before a Tesla came with a Ludicrous Mode.

Thing is, the 997-series GT2 RS of 2010 wasn’t labelled that way, and the mode just began from the moment you twisted the key and stayed on until you switched it off again.

Hardcore Porsche 911 GT2 RS makes debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

With the 690bhp promised by this one, you might well be forgiven for thinking the same thing again. Especially given that 690bhp is a whopping amount of power to generate from only a 3.8-litre engine. Any engine that has attempted this specific output before has been a bit, well, ‘boosty’.

And so it might be again. Except that Porsche doesn’t seem to do ludicrous these days. Everything it does is wrapped up in a complete, rounded package and is honed to guarantee drivability alongside absurd pace. But there’s space for Porsche to let its hair down. Let’s hope it takes it.


          2018 Nissan Leaf confirmed for September 6 reveal   
2018 Nissan Leaf confirmed for September 6 reveal Design will take influence from the Micra; it's confirmed to be available with Nissan's Propilot autonomous system

The next Nissan Leaf will be the brand's most advanced electric and partially autonomous model when it is revealed on the 6 September.

Confirmed to feature single-lane semi-autonomous Propilot technology and predicted to offer more than double the range of its predecessor, the all-new model looks on course to reinstate Nissan's lead in mass-production EVs.

In the run up to the car's world reveal, Nissan has released a new preview picture that shows a three-dimensional pyramid design within the car's grille. This new feature will come as part of the new Leaf's more aggressive exterior design.

The design appears to be inspired by the Micra, as shown by sightings of development cars (see gallery), with sharper lines on the body and a more aggressively stooped nose.

Along with its new look, the next-gen zero-emissions electric hatchback will also have an improved electric drivetrain that’s predicted to have a range of up to 340 miles – more than double the current car’s range.

This is around 90 miles further than the latest Renault Zoe can offer, making the Leaf a likely class leader by some margin.

The gains will come thanks to new battery pack options for the Leaf that will enable Nissan to sell it with a variety of specs, as Tesla does with its models. The largest battery could double the 30kWh lithium ion pack found in the highest-spec version of today’s Leaf.

When the future Leaf arrives on roads next year, it will lead Nissan's charge to grow EVs to represent 20% of its sales by 2020.

          An Automated Car System for Edinburgh   
An Automated Car System for Edinburgh Vision By 2018 electric driverless cars (Autonomous Vehicles or AV) will have been thoroughly tested and will be available on the market. With the right policies in place, Edinburgh could be the first modern city in the world to solve its mobility needs with a fleet of continuously moving automated vehicles seamlessly linked into mass public transport in real time, coordinated by a city wide transport communication system. Autonomous vehicles would offer Scotland’s capital economic, environmental and safety benefits. Electric Cars This year, 2017, electric cars will be able to compete on performance and price with traditional petrol cars on the market. GM and Tesla are bringing out electric cars at £20,000. There are over a dozen car companies[1] competing to produce electric cars, including Volkswagen, Geely Group, BMW, BYD, Ford, Tesla, Toyota, General Motors, Mitsubishi and Renault-Nissan. This disruptive technology will transform the automobile industry, eventually making fossil fuel cars obsolete. Driverless Technology In 2018 a number of other companies—including Google, QNX, Delphi, Cisco, Continental, Covisint, Codha, Autotalks, Mobileye and Nvidia—will introduce driverless car technology[2]. Driverless cars are already allowed on the road in three US states (California, Nevada and Florida), while Sweden is planning a large-scale trial in 2017. Competition looks set to create a buyers market. Consumer Attitudes Car ownership is becoming less popular in major cities, particularly among the young who do not want to pay for or manage their own car. Research by Deloitte shows that car ownership is increasingly making less sense to many people, especially in urban areas. They say that individuals are finding it difficult to justify tying up capital in an under-utilised asset that stays idle for 22 hours every day. As more people move to the city[3] the amount they drive each year falls and at some point it no longer makes financial sense to own a car. 62% of young professionals in the UK would consider using a driverless car in research conducted by Catapult. Generation Y in the survey by Deloittes found that 25% would not purchase a car, and they were 3 times more likely to get rid of a car if costs rose. And a staggering 50% preferred to use greener fuel, that is, non oil-based fuel. It should be noted that these surveys were undertaken before most people have had a chance to experience driverless cars. Recently a global survey from Leaseplan has shown that almost 8 out of 10 respondents in the UK would be comfortable being a passenger in a driverless car. How Could Edinburgh Benefit? Creating a city owned fleet of Autonomous Vehicles in Edinburgh would mean being able to summon a driverless car from our phone whenever we need one, and have it arrive within a short space of time (possibly 5 minutes). It would relieve car owners of all of the responsibilities, costs, and demands that come with traditional car ownership. Are people ready for this change? The electric cars transformational technology will ensure that they replace the fossil fuel cars. And if we allow only the consumer market to determine the response to driverless technology, then fleet owners like Uber will expand while private car ownership will shrink[4] as city dwellers become less inclined to purchase their own cars. Thus change would happen slowly and the most promising and important benefits to the environment and Public Safety will either be missed out on or delayed substantially. There is a strong case for the city to be proactive in a quest to gain the full benefits of this technology. The city can only reap the full benefits if it responds to this opportunity as a community and provides Autonomous Vehicles as a city service. How an Autonomous Vehicle Scheme for Edinburgh Might Work The cars would be networked together, communicating information about their position, speed, traffic and hazards around them. A customer would summon the car, which would take the customer where she or he wanted to go. The recharging, cleaning and maintenance of the cars would be managed centrally by the council. The cars would not always stop at junctions, because the communication technology between cars known as Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication would signal if no traffic were approaching. The traffic management system would keep cars moving, finding the best routes and it would be linked to a Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications system that informs the cars and passengers of factors that relate to its efficient operation, including integrating with mass transport systems, such as our busses, trams and rail services. This integrated system of transportation will be fully automated and operate at fiber optic speed, thus reduce traffic congestion, accidents and emissions all for a lower cost than the current transport system. We are also trying to answer specific questions on how it will work in our Q & A section. Benefits The move to Autonomous Vehicles in Edinburgh would significantly reduce air pollution and our contribution to global warming. It would provide a less expensive mobility service for all our community. Congestion would be significantly diminished; journey times would shrink. Edinburgh as a tourist destination would be enhanced as visitors to our city would find it easier to navigate. Other lesser benefits are listed in the pros and cons section. More important will be the improvement in road safety. More than 10 children are seriously injured or killed on Edinburgh’s roads every year. We could consign these tragic statistics to history. No cars will be parked in the city for extended periods of time. Enough cars will be kept in circulation to serve demand at any point in time, while surplus cars to demand will simply return to storage areas on the outskirts of the city. There would be no need for the concrete wastelands and lifeless ugly parking garages that now occupy otherwise productive space. The roadsides of residential streets that serve as the parking places in Edinburgh will be freed up. (Remember most of our cars are idle for 22 hours a day.) As the cars disappear they will make way for more

          The 15 Most Ridiculous Things That Media Figures Said About Environmental Issues in 2016   
Climate denialism. Conspiracy theories. Trump apologism. This year had a little bit of everything.

Donald Trump and the presidential election dominated news coverage in 2016. But talking heads still found plenty of time to make jaw-dropping comments about climate change, energy, and the environment. This year’s list of ridiculous claims includes a dangerous conspiracy theory about Hurricane Matthew, over-the-top worship of fracking and coal, and absurd victim-blaming around the Flint water crisis. Here is our list of the 15 most ridiculous things that media figures said about climate, energy, and environmental issues in 2016.

1. Rush Limbaugh And Matt Drudge Peddled A Reckless Conspiracy Theory Downplaying The Threat From Hurricane Matthew. Shortly before Hurricane Matthew made landfall in the U.S., Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge concocted a conspiracy theory that the federal government was overstating the hurricane’s severity in order to manufacture concern about climate change. On The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh accused the National Hurricane Center of "playing games" with hurricane forecasting and added, “It's in the interest of the left to have destructive hurricanes because then they can blame it on climate change, which they can desperately continue trying to sell.”

Limbaugh doubled down on this theory the next day, telling his audience, “There’s politics in the forecasting of hurricanes because there are votes.”

Drudge, the curator of the widely read Drudge Report website, promoted the conspiracy as well, suggesting that federal officials were exaggerating the danger posed by Hurricane Matthew “to make [an] exaggerated point on climate.”

[Twitter, 10/6/16]

[Twitter, 10/6/16]

Drudge also used his website to persuade Southeast residents not to take the storm seriously, with a banner “STORM FIZZLE? MATTHEW LOOKS RAGGED!” and additional headlines “IT’S A 4?” and “RESIDENTS NOT TAKING SERIOUSLY...”.

Climate scientist Michael Mann explained that people "could die because of the misinformation that folks like Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge are putting out there," and two actual hurricane experts provided a point-by-point rebuttal of Drudge’s claims. But that did nothing to dissuade Drudge, who refused to give up on the conspiracy theory.

2. Fox News Blamed The Flint Water Crisis On Climate Change Policies, "PC Stuff,” And Even Flint Residents Themselves. National media outlets largely ignored the water crisis in Flint, MI, as it unfolded over almost two years, but when the story did finally make national headlines, Fox News pundits were quick to pin the blame on anyone and anything other than the Republican governor of Michigan.

On Fox & Friends, host Heather Nauert and guest Mark Aesch suggested that “misplaced priorities,” including climate change and “PC stuff,” allowed the water crisis to happen:

And on The Kelly File, Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt placed blame on Flint residents themselves, saying that the "people of Flint should have been protesting in the streets" after noticing that their water was poisoned. Stirewalt also blamed Flint parents for giving their children contaminated water, declaring: "If you were pouring water into a cup for your child and it stunk and it smelled like sulfur and it was rotten, would you give that to your child? No, you'd revolt, you'd march in the street." In addition to being offensive, Stirewalt’s comments were premised on a falsehood; Flint residents did in fact repeatedly protest throughout the year to demand safe drinking water for their families.

3. CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Claimed Trump EPA Nominee Scott Pruitt “Hasn’t Denied Global Warming.” Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to head the Environmental Protection Agency, is a climate science denier who has refused to accept the clear consensus of the scientific community that human activities such as burning fossil fuels are primarily responsible for global warming. Yet according to CNN New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota, Pruitt simply “sees nuance” and “hasn’t denied global warming.” Camerota falsely claimed that Pruitt only disputes climate “predictions” and “forecasts,” when in fact he has also denied that global warming is human-caused, and even Camerota's premise that climate models are unreliable is incorrect. As Camerota wrongly absolved Pruitt of climate denial, CNN’s on-screen text read: “Climate Change Denier Scott Pruitt To Lead EPA.” Co-anchor Chris Cuomo also pushed back on Camerota, stating that Pruitt “says it’s ‘far from settled.’ That means he’s not accepting the science.”

Camerota badly butchered climate science, but it's noteworthy she was even discussing the issue given CNN’s spotty track record. In April, a Media Matters analysis found that CNN aired almost five times as much oil industry advertising as climate change-related coverage in the one-week periods following the announcements that 2015 was the hottest year on record and February 2016 was the most abnormally hot month on record. And in one segment later in the year where CNN did cover climate change, CNN Newsroom host Carol Costello speculated, “Are we just talking about this and people's eyes are glazing over?”

4. MSNBC's Mike Barnicle: ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson "Is A Huge Green Guy.” Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, is the chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil, one of the world’s largest oil companies. Exxon is currently under investigation in several states for possibly violating state laws by deceiving shareholders and the public about climate change, while Tillerson himself has misinformed about climate science and mocked renewable energy. Yet according to Mike Barnicle, a regular on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, “Rex Tillerson is a huge green guy.” And alas, no, we don't think he was comparing Tillerson to the Jolly Green Giant or the Incredible Hulk.

5. Disregarding Everything Trump Has Said And Done On The Subject, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Claimed “I Just Know” Trump Believes In Climate Science. On Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough defended Trump after it was announced he had selected Pruitt, a climate science denier, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Scarborough -- who along with co-host Mika Brzezinski has repeatedly carried water for Trump -- insisted, “I just know” that Trump “has to believe” in climate science.

Scarborough’s comments followed a wave of TV coverage about how Trump had supposedly “reversed course” on climate change, which was based on a New York Times interview in which Trump said he has an “open mind” about the Paris climate agreement and that “there is some connectivity” between human activities and climate change. But few of these reports addressed any of the substantive reasons that such a reversal was highly unlikely, such as his transition team’s plan to abandon the Obama administration’s landmark climate policy, indications that he will dismantle NASA’s climate research program, and his appointment of fossil fuel industry allies as transition team advisers -- not to mention the full context of Trump’s remarks to the Times.

6. Trump Adviser Stephen Moore: Being Against Fracking “Is Like Being Against A Cure For Cancer.” While discussing his new book Fueling Freedom: Exposing the Mad War on Energy on C-SPAN2's Book TV, conservative economist and Trump economic adviser Stephen Moore stated that opposing fracking “is like being against a cure for cancer” because it is “one of the great seismic technological breakthroughs” that is “giving us huge amounts of energy at very low prices.” Never mind that many of the chemicals involved in fracking have actually been linked to cancer. 

7. Stephen Moore: “We Have The Cleanest Coal In The World.” Moore’s preposterous praise for fossil fuels wasn’t just confined to fracking. On Fox Business’ Varney & Co., he declared that the U.S. has “the cleanest coal in the world.” That statement is quite difficult to square with the fact that “Coal combustion contributes to four of the top five leading causes of death in the U.S.—heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lower respiratory diseases—according to Physicians for Social Responsibility,” as Climate Nexus has noted.

Pro-coal propaganda also found a home on Fox Business’ sister network, Fox News, where The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld asserted that “coal is a moral substance. Where coal reaches, people live longer, happier lives.”

8. Breitbart’s James Delingpole: Climate Change Is “The Greatest-Ever Conspiracy Against The Taxpayer.” In an article promoting a speech he gave to the World Taxpayers’ Associations in Berlin, Breitbart’s James Delingpole wrote: “Climate change is the biggest scam in the history of the world – a $1.5 trillion-a-year conspiracy against the taxpayer, every cent, penny and centime of which ends in the pockets of the wrong kind of people.” In the speech itself, Delingpole similarly claimed that “the global warming industry” is “a fraud; a sham; a conspiracy against the taxpayer.”

Breitbart, which was until recent months run by Trump’s chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon, has frequently denied climate change and viciously attacked climate scientists. Delingpole, in particular, has described climate scientists as “talentless lowlifes” and referred to climate advocates as “eco Nazis,” “eco fascists,” and “scum-sucking slime balls.” Bannon has criticized Pope Francis for succumbing to “hysteria” about climate change; The Washington Post has written about how Bannon influenced Trump’s views on the issue during his time at Breitbart.

9. Fox Report On Law Gas Prices: “Put The Tesla In The Garage And Break Out The Hummer.” Just 10 days after Trump was elected president, Fox News began giving him credit for low gas prices, the latest proof of the network’s blatant double standard when it comes to covering gas prices under Republican and Democratic presidents. But simply shilling for Trump was apparently not enough for Fox Business reporter Jeff Flock, who provided the slanted gas prices report on Fox News’ America’s News Headquarters. At the conclusion of the reportFlock also displayed a brazen lack of concern about climate change, declaring: “I would say put the Tesla in the garage and break out the Hummer.”

10. Wall Street Journal’s Mary Kissel Instructed Viewers To “Trust” A Climate Science-Denying Fossil Fuel Front Group. In a video interview posted on The Wall Street Journal’s website, Journal editorial board member Mary Kissel instructed viewers who are “confused about the science surrounding climate change” to “trust” Rod Nichols, chairman of a climate science-denying fossil fuel front group known as the CO2 Coalition. During the interview, Nichols denied that human activities such as burning oil and coal are responsible for recent global warming, claiming that “climate change has been going on for hundreds of millions of years,” “there is not going to be any catastrophic climate change,” and “CO2 will be good for the world.” Kissel asked Nichols, “Why don't we hear more viewpoints like the ones that your coalition represents,” and concluded that the CO2 Coalition’s research papers are “terrific.”

The Wall Street Journal has made a habit of “trusting” climate science deniers like Nichols -- or at least repeating their false claims about climate science. A recent Media Matters analysis of climate-related opinion pieces found that the Journal far outpaced other major newspapers in climate science misinformation, publishing 31 opinion pieces that featured climate denial or other scientifically inaccurate claims about climate change over a year-and-a-half period.

11. Fox Host Clayton Morris: Rubio's Climate Science Denial At Presidential Debate Was An "Articulate Moment.” During a Fox News discussion of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s performance at a CNN presidential debate, Fox and Friends co-host Clayton Morris described Rubio’s claim that the climate is “always” changing -- a common talking point among climate science deniers -- as “a really articulate moment.” 

While Morris’ endorsement of Rubio’s climate denial as “articulate” is particularly striking, a 2015 Media Matters analysis found that media frequently failed to fact-check GOP presidential candidates’ climate change denial.

12. Fox Hosts Mocked Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscar Speech On Climate Change: "Focus On Something Else Other Than The Weather.” When actor Leonardo DiCaprio took home the Oscar for best actor for his role in The Revenant, the hosts of Fox News’ The Five and Fox and Friends mocked DiCaprio for devoting much of his acceptance speech to making the case for climate change action. On The Five, co-host Jesse Watters declared, “So the guy finally gets an Academy Award and he's talking about the weather. What's going on here?” Co-host Eric Bolling helpfully added, “Focus on something else other than the weather.”

That wasn’t the only time in 2016 that DiCaprio was caught in Fox News’ crosshairs for having the nerve to talk about climate change. Later in the year, The Five aired footage from an event in which President Obama criticized congressional climate deniers and DiCaprio said, “The scientific consensus is in, and the argument is now over. If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts, or in science, or empirical truths, and therefore in my humble opinion should not be allowed to hold public office.” The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld then responded by likening criticism of climate science deniers to religious extremism, saying: “You have to wonder about a belief system that doesn't want any challenges, that doesn't want any of their theories to be questioned. This -- what he is talking about is radical Islam of science. He is actually turning science into a religion.”

13. Fox’s Meghan McCain: "The Liberal Hysteria Over Climate Change Was So Overblown That Now People Have A Hard Time Even Believing It.” Rather than criticize conservatives or Republicans who frequently deny climate science, Fox News host Meghan Mccain blamed liberals for public confusion about climate change, declaring on Fox News' Outnumbered that “the liberal hysteria over climate change was so overblown that now people have a hard time even believing it and believing that it's something that's justified.” McCain, who also mocked Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for campaigning on the issue with Al Gore, added, “I do think there are signs we should look at, but if Al Gore, if you take his word for it, there's a big flood that's going to come in and wipe us all away in five minutes.”

McCain is the daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who notoriously flip-flopped on climate change legislation in 2009, undercutting congressional efforts to address the issue.

14. Fox’s Steve Doocy: Obama’s Monument Designation Was Done To “Appease Environmental Terrorists.” On Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy declared that President Obama’s designation of the first marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean was “done to appease environmental terrorists.” Not so shockingly, Doocy and his co-hosts did not comment when their guest, Deadliest Catch’s Keith Colburn, acknowledged that "increased water temperatures" from climate change are impacting fisheries across the United States.

15. Fox Hosts Flipped Out About Portland Public Schools Decision To Stop Teaching Climate Denial To Children. In May, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution “aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools.” But while climate science denial may no longer be taught in Portland public schools, it still has a place on Fox News, as the hosts of Outnumbered demonstrated in their flippant response to the resolution.

Co-host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery said the Portland schools decision is “so anti-scientific,” adding, “There are still scientists, believe it or not, out there who say, ‘No, we still have to look at the data.’ And it's impossible to predict how the climate is going to change over hundreds or thousands of years.” Co-host Jesse Waters remarked, “So getting out of the ice age, how did the Earth warm up after the ice age? There were no humans there with cars and factories.” He also stated, “It gets hot, it gets cold, this spring has been freezing. It's not getting warmer, it seems like it's getting colder. Am I wrong?”

But Fox News pundits aren’t just defenders of teaching climate science denial; they’re also partially to blame for it, according to researchers at Southern Methodist University (SMU). Last year, the SMU researchers released a study that found some children's textbooks that depict the reality of human-caused climate change with uncertainty are influenced by a climate science knowledge gap that finds its roots partly in conservative media misinformation. In particular, the SMU researchers pointed to previous research that showed Fox has disproportionately interviewed climate science deniers and that its viewers are more likely to be climate science deniers themselves.

With More Partnerships, Nvidia Solidifies Its Grip on Self-Driving Tech -

From its roots as a provider of graphics processing power for video games, Nvidia has risen to become one of the most important Silicon Valley companies developing technology for self-driving vehicles. This was underscored recently when the company announced further collaborations with two major OEMs—Volvo and Volkswagen—and top global automotive supplier ZF. Together, the announcements signal that automakers are using Nvidia’s technology for a broad range of autonomous systems, some of which are tilting from research-and-development projects into firm production plans.

-

Chief among them: Volvo will use Nvidia’s Drive PX computing platform, pictured above, to develop advanced software and artificial-intelligence applications for autonomous vehicles. The two companies had already collaborated on the XC90 SUVs used in Volvo’s Drive Me project, and this announcement entrenches their relationship as Volvo plans to launch autonomous vehicles by 2021.

Speaking at the Automobil Elektronik Kongress in Germany, Nvidia chief executive officer Jensen Huang further announced the company will continue developing deep-learning technology with Volkswagen at the automaker’s Silicon Valley laboratory and that it will deepen its partnership with global supplier ZF Group.

-

The announcements come at a time when competitors such as Intel are investing billions in self-driving technology and the race to provide chips, platforms, and artificial intelligence is ramping up. Tesla Motors was the first to use the Drive PX in production vehicles, and Nvidia has a long-standing relationship with Audi. More recently, it has inked deals with Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, and global supplier Bosch.

-

-

“On the platform side, Nvidia is clearly dominating in the development and early-implementation phases of autonomous vehicles based on the announcements that have come so far,” says Mike Ramsey, research director at Gartner, a global technology consulting company. “These recent announcements extend their lead.”

-

At Volvo, Nvidia will be developing both hardware and software while working with the Swedish automaker’s top supplier, Autoliv, as well as Zenuity, a new subsidiary of both companies formed earlier this year to focus on software development. Some of the work will remain proprietary to Volvo, while in some cases, Autoliv will be free to market products to other automakers.

-

“This is significant, because a lot of the development work we’re doing can be leveraged by other automakers,” said Danny Shapiro, senior director of Nvidia’s automotive business unit. “You’re starting to see the industry welcome these type of collaborations.”

“We need to be a systems supplier, and we need
-to understand the whole system to understand
-the functionalities of the future.”

Look no further than ZF, which also announced a deal with German lighting and sensor component supplier Hella. The companies plan to work together on camera and radar ventures that could help OEMs meet upcoming European New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) standards being developed for the mass deployment of semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles. Nvidia is now a piece of that puzzle. Drive PX will underpin the efforts of ZF and Hella to create artificial-intelligence software that optimizes camera and radar data for autonomous or semi-autonomous functions. Stefan Sommer, CEO of ZF Group, says perfecting the combination of that artificial-intelligence information with mechanical systems is vital.

-

-

“We need to be a systems supplier, and we need to understand the whole system to understand the functionalities of the future and see business models that we can sell with software solutions,” Sommer said. “By combining our technology and understanding it with each other, we are much faster and have a benefit in terms of having a promising technology other competitors do not have.”

-

With Volkswagen, the fruits of Nvidia’s collaboration are a bit further down the road. The two companies are working at VW’s Silicon Valley Data Lab to explore how vehicular information stored in data centers can be gleaned for insights, such as how traffic flow can be improved in particular cities. They’re using artificial intelligence in data centers instead of in the cars themselves, but in many ways, Nvidia’s Shapiro said, that’s just as important.

“AI is having a transformative effect on the auto industry in general, and a lot of this means focus on the Drive PX in the car, and running deep-learning algorithms in the vehicle, but there are lots of other implications for vehicles and connected cars,” he said.

Altairnano power play:  I wonder if this battery is for real.  "Altairnano - a relatively small public company [claims to produce] a battery that could power an electric vehicle hundreds of miles, charge in 10 minutes, and have a service life of 20 years or more.. The secret, according to Gotcher, is nanotechnology, and Altairnano's selection of nano-structured lithium titanate as a framework for its battery, branded NanoSafe™. Because the storage compartments are so small, the battery can store a lot of lithium ions. And the titanate material used in the nanostructures enhances battery cycle life, and gives it an extraordinary service life, he said., [claiming] more than 20,000 cycles with little performance degradation, .. Altairnano says its batteries have been tested under extreme conditions, including an operating temperature range of -50 to plus 71 degrees Celsius.  ..

The battery pack can be charged at low voltage over long times, or charged at higher voltages quicker, Gotcher said. In a 10 minute or less charge, at least 480 volts at several hundred amps will be required, transferring 210 kW/h of energy to the battery pack. .. How would service stations of the future store the mammoth amounts of electricity required by electric vehicles? Altairnano's Gotcher says the company "hasn't really said a lot about that yet, but you'll see us come forward with information in the second quarter."

Related news:  Power company AES made a $3 million "strategic investment" buying 1.5% of Altairnano's stock.  ZAP is building a Tesla-like roadster with its batteries.  So is Phoenix Motorcars, which has contracted to deliver 200 utility trucks with these batteries to PG&E in June 2007:  "Phoenix’s SUT can travel at freeway-speeds while carrying five passengers and a full payload, the company claimed. The SUT has a driving range of over 100 miles, can be recharged in less than 10 minutes and has a battery pack with a lifespan of more than 12 years."

UN เตือนห้ามผู้หญิงไปเป็นแม่บ้านในต่างประเทศยิ่งเสี่ยงเป็นเหยื่อค้ามนุษย์

องค์การสหประชาชาติ (UN) ได้เตือนว่าการที่รัฐบาลในเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ออกมาตรการห้ามผู้หญิงเดินทางไปทำงานเป็นแม่บ้านในต่างประเทศ จะทำให้พลเมืองของตนเองเสี่ยงที่จะตกเป็นเหยื่อของขบวนการการค้ามนุษย์เพิ่มมากขึ้น

ทั้งนี้ผู้หญิงเอเชียซึ่งส่วนใหญ่ครอบครัวมีฐานะยากจนตัดสินใจออกเดินทางไปทำงานแม่บ้านในต่างประเทศเพื่อหารายได้ จุนเจือครอบครอบ โดยคิดเป็นเกือบครึ่งของจำนวนแรงงานแม่บ้านทั้งหมด 53 ล้านคนทั่วโลก แต่พวกเธอมักจะพบกับชะตากรรมที่โหดร้ายไม่ว่าจะเป็นการทำร้ายร่างกายและข่มขืนในประเทศปลายทาง

อินโดนีเซีย พม่า และกัมพูชา เคยออกมาประกาศห้ามไม่ให้แรงงานหญิงเดินทางไปทำงานยังต่างประเทศในช่วงไม่กี่ปีที่ผ่านมาเพื่อแก้ปัญหาการละเมิดสิทธิพลเมืองของตนจากนายจ้างที่ต่างแดน แต่องค์การแรงงานระหว่างประเทศ (ILO) และองค์การสตรีแห่งสหประชาชาติ (UN Women) เคยเผยแพร่ผลการศึกษาพบว่ามาตรการดังกล่าวส่งผลให้บรรดาผู้หญิงที่ต้องการเดินทางไปทำงานต่างประเทศ มีโอกาสตกเป็นเหยื่อของแก๊งค้ามนุษย์เพิ่มมากขึ้น หลังจากที่กัมพูชาออกคำสั่งห้ามเมื่อปี 2554 พม่าประกาศห้ามเมื่อปี 2557 ก็ส่งผลให้มีจำนวนผู้ลักลอบนำแรงงานผิดกฎหมายออกนอกประเทศเพิ่มมากขึ้น

ปัญหาที่พักราคาสูงในกรุงปักกิ่งของจีน ส่งผลให้คนจำนวนมากต้องจำใจใช้ชีวิตอยู่ชั้นใต้ดิน ล่าสุดทางการจีนตรวจพบว่าชั้นใต้ดินของอะพาร์ตเมนต์หรูแห่งหนึ่งในเมืองหลวงถูกดัดแปลงให้เป็นห้องเช่าราคาถูกที่มีผู้พักอาศัยอยู่รวมกันอย่างแออัดราว 400 คน และอยู่ในสภาพที่เสี่ยงอันตราย เพราะมีทางออกฉุกเฉินเพียงทางเดียวและไม่มีหน้าต่าง

ที่ผ่านมา ทางการจีนได้ส่งเสริมให้มีการนำพื้นที่ชั้นใต้ดินไปใช้เป็นที่พักอาศัยและใช้ประโยชน์อื่น ๆ แต่ช่วงไม่กี่ปีให้หลังมานี้ทางการจีนได้เริ่มปราบปราม และหยุดอนุญาตการใช้พื้นที่ประเภทนี้ เพราะมีผู้นำไปทำห้องเช่าเล็ก ๆ ที่มีผู้อาศัยอยู่อย่างแออัดเป็นจำนวนมากจนก่อให้เกิดความวิตกกังวลด้านความปลอดภัย

Hi,

I measured the magnetic flux desity between two electromagnets in laboratory. Its about 1 Tesla.
Now I want to apply this measurements to my model in Comsul.

I used the "magnetic field, no currents"-Solver and added "Magnetic Flux Conservation".

Unfortunately there is no way to apply the measured magnetic flux density [T] to the model. I can use "Magnetization" [A/m] or "Remanent flux density " [B_r]. But this is not that what i am looking for.

Two month ago there was a user who had the same Issue, unfortunately nobody helped him.

Is there anyone who can help me/us?

Many thanks in advance !

          Model 3 News: Tesla CEO To Announce EV Details This Sunday   

The Tesla Model 3 is one of the most highly-anticipated EVs of 2017.

The mass production of the Tesla Model 3 is set to begin very soon, but there are still aspects of the upcoming vehicle that remain unknown. One of these is the Model 3’s official release date, which, up to this day, still exists in the realm of speculation. Ever the active executive, however, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed on Twitter that the EV maker would be releasing new Model 3 news on Sunday (July 2).

Musk’s statement was spurred on by Douglas Bailey, a Tesla fan from Sydney who addressed the lack of an official Model 3 release date. In a Twitter post, Bailey asked Musk for any official word on the Model 3’s timeline, seeing as the Tesla community is still in the dark about the highly anticipated EV’s rollout date, according to a TechCrunch report. Fortunately, Musk answered the Tesla fan’s inquiries, stating simply that there would be “news on Sunday.”

          Lawsuit: NHTSA Ignored Freedom of Information Act Request   

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has been sued for allegedly ignoring a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by a research company that wants to know details about Tesla's Autopilot system.

Plaintiff Quality Control Systems Corp. (QCS), based in Maryland, says it concentrates in "computer-intensive, statistical research with large databases," and wants to know more about the data used to investigate the Tesla Model S and Model X.

Safety regulators took a look at Tesla's Autopilot system in 2016 after a crash that killed former Navy SEAL Joshua Brown. Mr. Brown was driving his Model S with Autopilot engaged when the car slammed into a tractor-trailer, killing Brown on a Florida highway.

NHTSA eventually closed its investigation and claimed the data showed Autosteer, a function of the Autopilot system, reduced airbag deployments and crash rates.

QCS says it sent a FOIA request to NHTSA in February 2017 to obtain crash data allegedly withheld from the public by the government. According to the lawsuit, scientific researchers need the data to "assess the validity of the remarkable claim made by NHTSA that airbag deployments in Tesla vehicles dropped by almost 40 percent after the installation of a component of the Tesla's Autopilot system, Autosteer."

QCS says the documents specifically say that NHTSA calculated airbag deployment crashes in the Tesla vehicles before and after Autosteer was installed and found the reduction in crash rates. However, QCS says it is concerned the alleged reduction in crash rates is associated with the "installation" of Autosteer, rather than the actual use of Autosteer.

QCS wants to know if NHTSA used scientific methods to validate the tests and if the results can be replicated. In addition, the company wants to know if the alleged reduction in crash rates is due to Autosteer itself and if the decreased crash rates are expected to continue.

"The surprising claim by NHTSA of an extraordinary reduction in crash rates associated with the installation of Autosteer must be carefully considered in the context of the Agency's failure to allow public access to the underlying data. Such an important conclusion by the Agency should not be based on data that the government is withholding from researchers who want to examine NHTSA's results." - Quality Control Systems

In March 2017, NHTSA responded to QCS by saying the agency was issuing “an interim response to your FOIA request dated February 24, 2017,"  and was “extending by ten working days the time period by which the agency must provide a response.”

Further, NHTSA said it needed additional time "to search for and collect the requested records from field facilities or other establishments that are separate from the office processing the request.” Finally, the letter stated that NHTSA expected to provide a response by April 14, 2017.

However, QCS says that communication was the last it heard from NHTSA.

The Quality Control Systems Freedom of Information Act request lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia - Quality Control Systems Corp. v. U.S. Department of Transportation.

UN เตือนห้ามผู้หญิงไปเป็นแม่บ้านในต่างประเทศยิ่งเสี่ยงเป็นเหยื่อค้ามนุษย์

องค์การสหประชาชาติ (UN) ได้เตือนว่าการที่รัฐบาลในเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ออกมาตรการห้ามผู้หญิงเดินทางไปทำงานเป็นแม่บ้านในต่างประเทศ จะทำให้พลเมืองของตนเองเสี่ยงที่จะตกเป็นเหยื่อของขบวนการการค้ามนุษย์เพิ่มมากขึ้น

ทั้งนี้ผู้หญิงเอเชียซึ่งส่วนใหญ่ครอบครัวมีฐานะยากจนตัดสินใจออกเดินทางไปทำงานแม่บ้านในต่างประเทศเพื่อหารายได้ จุนเจือครอบครอบ โดยคิดเป็นเกือบครึ่งของจำนวนแรงงานแม่บ้านทั้งหมด 53 ล้านคนทั่วโลก แต่พวกเธอมักจะพบกับชะตากรรมที่โหดร้ายไม่ว่าจะเป็นการทำร้ายร่างกายและข่มขืนในประเทศปลายทาง

อินโดนีเซีย พม่า และกัมพูชา เคยออกมาประกาศห้ามไม่ให้แรงงานหญิงเดินทางไปทำงานยังต่างประเทศในช่วงไม่กี่ปีที่ผ่านมาเพื่อแก้ปัญหาการละเมิดสิทธิพลเมืองของตนจากนายจ้างที่ต่างแดน แต่องค์การแรงงานระหว่างประเทศ (ILO) และองค์การสตรีแห่งสหประชาชาติ (UN Women) เคยเผยแพร่ผลการศึกษาพบว่ามาตรการดังกล่าวส่งผลให้บรรดาผู้หญิงที่ต้องการเดินทางไปทำงานต่างประเทศ มีโอกาสตกเป็นเหยื่อของแก๊งค้ามนุษย์เพิ่มมากขึ้น หลังจากที่กัมพูชาออกคำสั่งห้ามเมื่อปี 2554 พม่าประกาศห้ามเมื่อปี 2557 ก็ส่งผลให้มีจำนวนผู้ลักลอบนำแรงงานผิดกฎหมายออกนอกประเทศเพิ่มมากขึ้น

          Russos viajam da Terra a Saturno através de "Portais Dimensionais"    
Vídeos mostram supostos ônibus russos que viajaram da Terra a Saturno através de portais dimensionais. De acordo com os relatos, em 2015, os pesquisadores da Nasa revelaram a verdade sobre viagens no tempo e sobre portais dimensionais. Eles afirmaram que é possível viajar no tempo em um instante, usando portais energéticos.

Existem atualmente sugestões literárias, provas e testemunhos de que esse tipo de experiência pode acontecer. Segundo pesquisadores e teóricos, até os povos antigos conheciam os portais que davam acesso não apenas a outros sistemas estelares, mas também ao interior da Terra.

Neste contexto, um pesquisador da NASA chegou a afirmar que existem portais para outras dimensões que abrem e fecham todos os dias. Eles são encontrados dentro do campo magnético da Terra.

A NASA vem chamando os portais de Boom Tubes, regiões de difusão de elétrons ou pontos "X". Isso significa que existe uma extraordinária abertura no espaço e no tempo. Sciencedaily

Jack Scudder, um físico de plasma da Universidade de Iowa, refere-se ao ponto X como: “Lugares onde o campo magnético da Terra se conecta ao campo magnético do Sol. Esses portais podem ser evasivos. No entanto, poderiam ser utilizados para viagens espaciais por especialistas em geografia espacial e matemática”.

Andrew D. Basiago, um ex-participante do projeto DARPA Pegasus (1968-72), também ressaltou que os militares desenvolveram uma teletransia quântica baseada nas pesquisas de Tesla, para poder viajar no tempo. Este estudo teria dado início ao programa norte-americano Chrononauts Tempo-Espaço.

A experiência russa

Os russos também estariam realizando experimentos de viagem no tempo, com tecnologias secretas que poderiam transportar um ônibus da Terra a Saturno através de Portais Dimensionais. As imagens que aparecem em vídeos divulgados na internet mostram a abertura dos tais portais. Segundo os internautas, os russos vêm tentando colonizar algum lugar no espaço ou encontrar, pelo menos, um planeta no universo que possa fornecer condições de vida semelhantes às da Terra.

Os vídeos que ganharam destaque na web em março de 2017 mostram uma ação secreta da Rússia. É possível ver um buraco negro aberto no céu, por onde um suposto ônibus espacial passa a caminho do espaço. As imagens são bastante curiosas e interessantes e reforçam a teoria de que os russos possam estar realmente avançados em termos de conhecimento e tecnologias para viagens no tempo e no espaço.

Confira o vídeo e tire suas próprias conclusões. Será mesmo possível viajar através de portais dimensionais capazes de levar ao espaço, ao passado, ao futuro e ao centro da Terra?

          Sad but True: The Republican Party Somehow Still Exists

How does this groaning calamity of a political party continue not only to survive, but also thrive? These people control the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Supreme Court, along with legislatures and governors' offices from sea to shining sea, yet they can't seem to legislate themselves out of a wet paper sack.

"Modern science says: 'The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.' From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom."—Nikola Tesla

Under normal circumstances, in a normal time, on a normal planet, this would be an article about the cataclysmic self-inflicted demise of the Republican Party as a functioning political entity in the United States of America … and if we had ham, we could have ham and eggs, if we had eggs. These are not normal circumstances, this is not a normal time and gadzooks, this is not a normal planet.

Consider the facts in hand: The Republicans nominated and then elected a farcical caricature of a buffoon, a vulgarian oaf, a serial liar of Brobdingnagian proportions, a confessed misogynist and serial assaulter of women, a fact-free ignoramus too ego-blinded to recognize how much he doesn't know, to the highest office in the land. To the surprise of virtually no one, he has bollixed up the job so comprehensively that his approval rating currently hovers somewhere below pig offal, and in five short months he has become the most despised world leader since Caligula.

For a moment let's leave aside the deliberate deconstruction of the State Department and the Environmental Protection Agency. Set aside his recent assault on clean water and press freedom. Forget for the time being his incomprehensible disdain for climate science, even as he has walls built to protect his golf courses from the encroaching ocean. Temporarily ignore the distinct possibility that he sold our democracy down the Volga River because he owes money to a bunch of Russian oligarchs. Let's talk Twitter, and "What It All Means" in the main.

Plenty of critics have rightly slagged the mainstream press for focusing too much on Trump's tweets, but there is a Rorschach test aspect to his use of the medium that, on occasion, blows the lid off the reality that is the bowl of rancid pub cheese currently disgracing the White House. Thursday morning provided one such opportunity.

For reasons passing understanding, Trump decided to take to Twitter before 9:00 am DC time -- presumably when he should have been getting a security report, reading briefing papers and generally preparing for the challenges inherent in maybe the hardest job in the world -- to launch a barrage of insults at Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, co-hosts of the MSNBC show "Morning Joe." He called Scarborough "psycho" and Brzezinski "crazy," even though the pair hauled a fair amount of water for him both during and after the election. Worse, he went on to say that Brzezinski wasn't allowed into Mar-a-Lago because she was "bleeding badly from a face-lift."

Full stop. Wait, what? The president of the United States apparently has a real obsession with bleeding female television personalities. Why would he do this? What is the goal? Mr. Trump seems to believe in that old adage about no press being bad press, a thoroughly disproven idea that his doppelgänger, Richard Nixon, learned about the hard way.

This Mika/Joe tweet thing with Trump took a dark turn this morning. Brzezinski and Scarborough revealed on their show that the National Enquirer (owned by a Trump loyalist) was harassing Brzezinski's daughters and friends, and staking out her house. Scarborough said he got calls from White House officials saying the Enquirer was going to run a hatchet job story on Brzezinski and him, but if he called Trump and apologized for his coverage, Trump would have the story spiked.

Scarborough correctly called it "blackmail" this morning, and Brzezinski stated flatly that the alleged Enquirer story didn't exist, and dared them to run it. After this was broadcast, Trump tweeted that Scarborough had called him and asked him to kill the story, and Trump refused. Scarborough tweeted back saying, essentially, you're a liar, that didn't happen, and I have the phone records.

This indeed sounds like blackmail -- blackmail directed from the highest office in the administration. The fact that Trump tweeted about Scarborough asking for the story to be killed and his refusal to do so is an open assertion that the story exists and that he had the power to stop it. This is actually a pretty big damn deal.

Twitter, for its part, ate Trump's breakfast and lunch in less time than it takes to fart in an elevator:

"Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America."—GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham

"Please just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office."GOP Sen. Ben Sasse

"Seriously dude, SHUT UP."Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro

Such high dudgeon from the moral brigade of the GOP over Trump's ghoulish lack of judgment is nice fodder for the TV people, but never forget the core truth of all this, summarized to lethal effect by Albert Burneko of The Concourse: "Imagine fretting over what does or does not empower women while your own party conspires to strip prenatal care from mothers. Imagine wringing your hands over civility while plotting to bankrupt and ruin the families of sick children so that a few billionaires can bleed just a little more cash out of the society they're destroying."

On the other side of the city, GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is sitting in his office with an ice pack on his head because the Capitol dome fell on him this week. He put his status and leadership on the line to pass a health care reconciliation bill so thoroughly twisted that, according to Quinnipiac, it is supported by only 16 percent of the populace, with only 6 percent of Republicans strongly supporting it.

You have to get up bright and early to achieve numbers so astonishingly low, even in these strange days. If you read the thing, though, it should come as no surprise: The bill is so utterly repulsive, McConnell should have named it "The Soylent Green Is People Reconciliation Act of 2017." For those who don't get the reference, it's from a movie about eating people. The shoe fits.

In doing this, particularly in the sneaky secretive manner he chose, McConnell has blown his own caucus to shreds and tatters. Hard-line Republicans like Rand Paul revolted because the proposed bill looks too much like the Affordable Care Act, while more moderate senators like Dean Heller of Nevada balked because of the massive attack on Medicaid the bill represents. In other words, McConnell managed to piss off pretty much everyone, and no one seemed eager to charge to the bill's defense. In fact, a whole slew of fence-sitting Republican senators came out against it in a true profile in courage after McConnell yanked it from consideration on Tuesday.

The forecast has not improved. The last nose count had between 15 and 20 GOP senators defecting. There was chatter for a time that McConnell would try to stuff some new cobbled-together version of the bill through the Congressional Budget Office's mail slot today for yet another scoring, but with GOP senators fleeing DC en masse for the July 4 recess, the prospect seems exceptionally dim. I'm not sure why he's so anxious; the other two scores were torpedoes below the waterline for the GOP's concept of "health care reform." The idea that a new one will be made of sunbeams and flowers all of a sudden is quite the stretch.

Republicans and the White House can once again try to undermine the integrity of the Congressional Budget Office's (CBO) work, but that argument remains a tough sell. The director of the CBO is a man named Keith Hall. He was George W. Bush's Chief Economist for the Council of Economic Advisers before Bush tapped him to run the Budget Office. Painting him as some lily-livered liberal partisan is what they call "a hard dollar."

So, yeah … how? How does this groaning calamity of a political party continue to thrive? These people control the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Supreme Court, along with state legislatures and governors' offices from sea to shining sea, yet they can't seem to legislate themselves out of a wet paper sack. If the GOP were an animal in the wild, it would have been devoured by chickadees long ago. The fact that it still exists at all is the best parlor trick since "Lazarus, come forth."

Oh, right. Citizens United. Brutally racist voter suppression across a variety of vital states, combined with outright election theft in a number of instances. Partisan gerrymandering. Decades of right-wing domination of the media. A Democratic Party "opposition" beholden to most of the same corporate interests as the Republicans. A system so deeply mired in wildly discredited economic mythologies that it refuses to recognize its own imminent collapse. A population so thoroughly disgusted and dispirited by it all that only half of them bother to show up at the polls on a good day.

I get it.

          Ultima Retrospective, Part II, or "Highest of highs."   
Last time, I covered the first six Ultima games. This time, we'll take a look at some of the side games in the series and both parts of Ultima VII.

As before, this will contain quite a few spoilers. I suggest you stop reading now if you don't want me to spoil the series for you.

Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire and Martian Dreams: After Ultima VI, Origin decided to use the engine to create a few side-stories for the Ultima series. Neither takes place in Britannia, and honestly, neither has any real effect on the rest of the series as a whole. The first, The Savage Empire, takes place in a Lost World-like jungle filled with people pulled from various eras. The Avatar is transported there by an experiment gone awry. To get home, the Avatar has to master a new form of magic and fight the insectoid Myrmidex.

Martian Dreams takes the Avatar to Mars, where he must help save an expedition filled with famous, late nineteenth-century figures that was accidentally launched via a Space Cannon from a World's Fair. To put it succinctly, the Avatar goes to Mars to fight a Martian-possessed Rasputin with the assistance of the likes of Sigmund Freud, Nikola Tesla, Teddy Roosevelt and Buffalo Bill.

Seriously.


Both Worlds of Ultima games include a number of new companions for the Avatar, including a man named Dr. Spector. He's a self-insert for Warren Spector. Yes, that Warren Spector. Origin launched a lot of game design careers.

Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss: The Avatar was quite busy between Ultima VI and VII. Aside from the Worlds of Ultima games, he also appeared in a 3D game called Ultima Underworld. After being drawn back to Britannia to a colony on the Isle of the Avatar devoted to virtue, the Avatar witnesses a kidnapping which he is then found guilty and banished to the Stygian Abyss. Inside, he must rescue the kidnapped girl and prevent a demon from being summoned to Britannia. The game takes place from a first person perspective and is essentially a non-linear dungeon-crawler. You explore the abyss, fighting monsters and discovering the sinister happenings of the colony.

Ultima VII, Part 1: The Black Gate: Back to the numbered series, we reach what I consider the high point of the series. Ultima VII carries over much of from Ultima VI - the perspective, the general looks of the supporting cast, etc. - but adds several dozen layers of depth. Ultima VII is a living, breathing world. All the NPCs run on a schedule. You can explore virtually anywhere. It is a giant sand box of interactivity. You can even bake bread should you so desire. About the only major loss from Ultima VI was that you are now given the key words for NPC conversations without having to type them out yourself. But that's debatable as to that being a loss or not.

The story itself is quite good. It's been almost 200 years (Time in Britannia runs faster than on Earth.) since the Avatar was last seen in Britannia. Lord British is still on the throne and it's a time of relative peace. (Lord British and almost all of the Avatar's main companions are natives of Earth and age slower because of the time difference.) The Underworld finally finished collapsing, but the Gargoyles were giving the island of Terfin - Former home of Blackthorn's castle - to settle on. In the mean time, the Fellowship, a not-at-all sinister philosophical and religious organization has risen to great prominence. But all is not going quite so well. Mages across the land are loosing their minds, being driven mad by some sort of disruption in the ethereal waves that full their powers. People have begun to forget the way of the virtues, and many of the shrines have gone into disrepair. Oh, and there's been a rash of bloody, ritualistic murders.

Enter, once again, the Avatar. After being taunted by a malevolent, red face on his computer screen, he rushes outside to find a moongate open. He assumes Lord British sent it to summon the Avatar to aide him once again, and enters the red portal. For some reason, he decides not to bring any weapons or equipment, but honestly, that's nothing new. He ends up in Trinsic at the site of the latest of the murders. And so the Avatar begins a new journey, tracking down the myserious hook-handed murderer, figure out who this 'Guardian' guy is and learn the dark secrets hidden behind the friendly facade of the Fellowship.

It's difficult to write about Ultima VII's plot in any cohesive manner because it doesn't follow much direct progression. The Black Gate is a giant sandbox of plots and sub plots and side quests. It's concievable that you could skip around and even miss big chunks of the main plot thread. You spend most of the game following the trail of two of the Fellowship's founders, Elizabeth and Abraham investigating the murder spree that seems to form in their wake. There is a route the game will point out for you to follow, but over all, you could skip almost directly to the end of the trail only to have to go back and do earlier parts in the wrong order. It isn't a weakness in the game, per se, but it could cause a new player trouble if they fall off the rails and don't know where to go next.

The game also had an expansion pack called The Forge of Virtue. It wraps up a few hanging plot threads from Ultima III of all games. After the Stranger defeated Exodus in Ultima III, Lord British turned the demonic machine's former home base into a place that would be part of the Quest of the Avatar. The Isle of Fire sank into the ocean before anyone could make use of it, so it was forgotten. That is, until the island rises again. Fearing the return of Exodus, Lord British asks the avatar to travel to the Isle of Fire and find out what's going on. He learns that what he destroyed all those years ago was in reality Exodus's terminal interface and that it's dark core yet remains. The Avatar must take the challenges of truth, love and courage to help create the Talisman of Infinity to banish the dark core. In the process, he has to do a number of tests and forge a dark, demonic sword to slay a powerful dragon. The sword will be integral in the next numbered chapter.

In his travels, the Avatar will destroy three generators put in place by the Guardian. One is causing the mages to go inside, one has destabilized moongate travel (And completely breaks all the moongates when destroyed, leaving the Avatar stranded in Britannia.) and a third allows the Guardian to communicate with his followers. With three objects trapped inside those generators in hand, as well as a broken magic wand that detonates the mysterious blackrock that has been mined in mass, the Avatar confronts the Guardian's most loyal and powerful supporters in their 'secret' hideout on the Isle of the Avatar. Personally, I think hiding on an island named after your biggest adversary right behind one of the most important shrines for Britannians and gargoyles alike - the shrine that once housed the Codex of Infinite Wisdom - is a pretty bad idea in the grand scheme of things. But hey, I'm not an all-powerful, muppet-faced, trans-dimensional overlord. I'm sure he had a good reason for his minions to build the gate there.

When the Avatar reaches the titular gate, he's faced with a choice - Destroy the black gate and prevent the Guardian from using it himself, or use the gate to return to Earth, leaving Britannia to it's fate. I'm not sure why it didn't occur to the avatar to hand the wand to Iolo and go through, letting his companions destroy the gate themselves, but obviously, the Avatar blows up the blackrock portal. But Batlin, the Fellowship's founder and the Guardian's greatest supporter in Britannia, has escaped to parts unknown. But for the moment, victory is at hand and chasing down Batlin can wait for another game.

Aside from the underlying theme of the danger of blind loyalty to a group and the dangers of collectivism, there's one other subtle theme in The Black Gate. That is a resistance to the takeover of Origin by the gaming behemoth, Electronic Arts. For instance, the three generators are in the shape of a sphere, cube and tetrahedron, which is a subtle parody of EA's circle-box-triangle logo. If you look hard enough, you'll find other little jabs at EA through out the game. Sales were not enough for Ultima VII to stop EA's takeover.

Ultima VII was ported to the Super Nintendo. Well, not so much ported as smashed repeatedly with a spiked mace for an hour. Some of it has to do with good old Nintendo censorship. The brutal murders, for example, which spur much of the plot are replaced by bloodless kidnappings. Other problems are a bit more puzzling. You don't get a party for your journey. I think it might have to do with the biggest change for the port. Our happy, wonderful Ultima game turned into a Legend of Zelda clone in many ways. I suppose intergrating party combat into a more twitch-based setup would be difficult.

Part of the problem with playing a lot of old Ultima games on their native platform - the PC - is that technology has rendered some of the games unplayable. Computers today are just to fast for the oldest games. And then there's both parts of Ultima VII that required specialized DOS setting back when they first came out. The games would require you to make a boot disk and load up the game via that. There are two ways to get around this to play the game. The first is using a DOS emulator like DOSBox. The second is to use a specially made emulator for the two Ultima VII games called Exult Exult doesn't just emulate the game and make it playable on modern PCs. It improves the games. You can get a large screen size than the normal 320 x 200 the game was made with. It will also add a number of GUI and interface improvements added in Serpent Isle to the Black Gate. Exult further has its own interface improvements such as an easily accessible health (and mana for the Avatar) bar so you can see which of your party members are about to die horribly before they're on the ground in a pool of blood. The only major drawback to Exult is that it does cause both the Black Gate and Serpent Isle to be a bit buggy at times.

Ultima Underworld II: Labyrinth of Worlds: Squeezed in chronologically in the year and a half between the the two parts of Ultima VII, we have the second Ultima Underworld game. It features better graphics than it's predecessor and a slightly more involved story. Lord British decided to hold a party in his castle with most of the Avatar's companions and various other dignitaries to celebrate a year of rebuilding Britannia after the destruction of the black gate. But one of the guests, working at the behest of the Guardian, traps the guests inside so they'd be out of the way while the Guardian attempts to invade Britannia. It's up to the avatar to use a crystal found in the sewers below the castle to explore a number of world held by the Guardian to find a way to crack the blackrock dome locking them in.

Like Underworld I, Underworld II is a side story with little impact on the main series. It gives a bit of insight into other worlds that the Guardian has conquered and shows that big red does have a few other plans squirreled away in case he failed. It also contains its share of plot holes, such as where the black sword from the Forge of Virtue - a sword which the Avatar is bound to and can not discard - has wandered off too. Then again, giving the Avatar a weapon that powerful from the word go would have somewhat lessened the challenge.

The only major plot-related item in Underworld II that will have any effect on the series as it moves forward is the discovery of a blackrock sculpture of a serpent that will come into play in the next chapter.

Ultima VII, Part 2: Serpent Isle: EA's in charge of Origin now, so hang on kids. Things are about to get a bit rocky. Serpent Isle could almost be called Ultima 8, but it was decided since it runs on the same engine as The Black Gate that they couldn't give it its own number. Instead it became part two of Ultima VII.

It's been two years since the destruction of the Fellowship, and Lord British and the Avatar have finally gotten around to going through Batlin's stuff. Apparently LB spent his time, when not trapped in a blackrock dome, rather poorly of late. Anyway, they find a magical message left by the Guardian for Batlin that tells him that should (Or when, as the case may be) the Avatar thwarts his plan to enter Britannia, he should venture to the mysterious Serpent Isle and... Uh... I guess let him in through there? The whole plan is a bit vague, at best.

Serpent Isle, as it turns out, is where one of the Avatar's former companions and Iolo's wife Gwenno had recently gone to through the here-to-fore unmentioned Serpent Pillars. Not having much else to do, I suppose, the Avatar grabs Shamino, Dupre and Iolo and heads off after Batlin.

Lord British apparently confiscated all the Avatar's best gear from The Black Gate because you're rather poorly equipped when you arrive on the Serpent isle. And by arrive, I mean your boat gets struck by lightning and sails through the air, somehow safely landing on the coast of the unknown, yet oddly familiar continent. The Avatar and company set out from their wrecked ship only to get struck by lightning after about thirty feet. They're off to a great start, aren't they?

Turns out the lightning is magic lighting that's a sign of the the Apocalypse. More importantly, it steals most of what little good gear you came there with. It also scatters your companions. The Avatar soon meets a monk who will serve as your resurrection service for the game and who give a bit of exposition after the obligatory copyright protection. It turns out that Serpent Isle is being plagued by storms. These storms are but a sign that the end of the world is near, and the Avatar and his companions are prophesied to be the ones to fix the world's problems. The monk gets cut off by her fellow monk who interprets the prophesy differently thinking that by helping the Avatar, they are dooming themselves. The two fight with magic before teleporting away. From there, you meet up with Shamino and eventually the rest of your companions and explore this strange, new (old) world.

Serpent Isle is a far more linear game than The Black Gate was and takes place in what you might call three acts. The first act, you meet the locals. There are three cities in the southern part of the continent - Monitor, Fawn, and Moonshade. All three were settled by Sosarians who fled when Lord British took over and imposed his system of virtues on the world. A mage named Erstram lead them through the Serpent Pillars to found New Sosaria. The continent they found was covered in ruins decorated with various types of serpents, so they decided to rename it Serpent Isle. Essentially, all of this is a bit of a retcon to explain where exactly several of the cities that vanished between Ultima III and IV went. But it's fairly clever. More importantly, it's the Avatar's first trip through a world that knows little of his Age of Enlightenment exploits and where Lord British is referred to as the Beast British.

The second act delves deeper into the history of Serpent Isle as they follow Batlin. In exploring the continent, the Avatar and his companions learn that Serpent Isle is, or was, one of the original four continents of Sosaria - The Lands of Danger and Despair. After being split off from the rest of Sosaria, the remaining people eventually started worshiping Order, Chaos and Balance in the form of three serpents. Order and Chaos grew into powerful factions and remained held in check by the lesser faction of Balance. They called themselves the Olphidians and had a rather nice civilization going for a while there.

Everyone remember the Great Earth Serpent from Ultima III? Yeah, well, he was the serpent that embodied Balance for the Olphidians. When he was ripped from the void by Exodus to guard his castle, war broke out between Order and Chaos. In the void, the serpents of Order and Chaos fought it out as well. In the end, Order won the war with their army of robotic automatons. In the void, the serpent of Chaos was defeated and his essence sundered three parts. The three parts were imprisoned and grew corrupted over time, becoming the Banes of Chaos. Order left Serpent Isle through their wall of lights to go elsewhere. Thus, when the settlers showed up later on, the island was deserted and covered in war-torn ruins.

The war had unforeseen consequences. With no mediating force and one force prevailing over the other, the world was thrown into imbalance. This imbalance started localized to Serpent Isle, but over time snowballed into the mess that exists today. The storms are a consequence of ancient war. Batlin, having learned from the Guardian about Serpent Isle and the Wall of Lights, believed that he could attain power to rival the Guardian and betrays him. He frees then captures the three Banes of Chaos, but then does something rather dumb. He goes to the Wall of Lights belonging to the Order sect and attempted to open it with the blackrock serpent (One like the one found n Underworld II) of Chaos. This does not go well, and Batlin's death marks the end of act II.

Act III starts immediately after when your three companions - Shamino, Iolo and Dupre - are possessed by the Banes of Chaos - Anarchy, insanity and wantonness respectively - and proceed to murder about 90 percent of the population of Serpent Isle. Yeah.

As an aside, there was originally supposed to do far more than their murder spree. But in a sign of things to come, Origin had to rush the game out the door and cut a lot. Originally, the Banes were supposed to take over Moonshade, Montor and Fawn and you would have to drive them out before eventually confronting them. Instead, they murder almost everyone and hold up in one of the few places you have yet to be able to access in the game. There are bits and pieces of the cut content that remain. But they're relegated to minor sub plot status as you go off in search of what you'll need to take down the Banes and eventually finish the game.

The Avatar and a few survivors find the dead Gwenno, who had been possessed by the Bane of Wantonness bane before Batlin killed her and captured it. Once revived, she is act rather nuts. To cure her, and then to create prisons to capture the banes, you have to seek out the six Olphidian shrines dedicated to their 'virtues.' Dousing Gwenno with the water of Ethnicality fixes her. After forging three soul prisms, you go fight the banes, slaying them and capturing them in soul prisms. Dumping a bucket of the right water on the right companion, once revived, brings them back to their senses. It also allows Xenka, the seer who started the monastery, to wake up (Or appear. It's a bit sketchy.) and tell her followers how badly they screwed things up. Also, she sends the Avatar on the journey to save the universe from the increasing imbalance. The effects of the imbalance had begun effecting other worlds outside Serpent Isle. That includes Britannia and even Earth.

The Avatar is told that he must do the following. He needs to get the various ceremonial implements of the Great Heirophant, the three blackrock serpents of Order, Chaos and Balance, and the eyes of Order and Chaos. He, or one of his companions must then sacrifice themselves as part of a ritual to recreate a purified Chaos Serpent. Finally, he has to return the Great Earth Serpent to the void so he can mediate the two forces once more. Dupre, unable to live down what he did while possessed by the Bane, sacrifices himself in the Monitor crematorium. The Avatar uses his late friend's sacrifice to recreate the Chaos Serpent, who immediately starts fighting the Order Serpent in the void. Finally, he heads to the shrine of Balance on Sunrise Isle, and sends the Great Earth Serpent back into the void, finally ending the war and the imbalance. The Avatar himself goes through the wall with the Great Earth Serpent and witnesses the reunion, but before he is able to return to Serpent Isle (Assuming he could at all. He was kinda floating in space there.) the Guardian reaches into the void and snatches up the Avatar and drags him off to a new, unknown world. A world already conquered by the Guardian and knows nothing of Sosaria, the virtues or the Avatar. The world of Pagan.

Serpent Isle is a great game and honestly, I love the story. But the story comes at a price. The immense sandbox of The Black Gate starts to vanish. It would be seen again, in a way, when it came time to create the Ultima MMO, Ultima Online, some years later. But the rest of the main series would become far more linear in their scope and remove much of your ability to explore.

What really gets me about the story is two fold. First is the people of the three cities. They are people who, unlike everyone you've met for the last four games, decided not to live under Lord British's virtues and fled to an unknown land. As such, you encounter people who could give a damn about your being the paragon of those virtues. You're back to being a stranger, of sorts. Also, it's interesting to see how they subtly twisted the three principles - Truth, love, and courage - in representing their towns.

The second part I particularly liked was the Order/Chaos dichotomy. Neither side is good or evil. There could just as easily been Banes of Order had Order lost the war instead. The system leans towards finding Balance between the two extremes. I think the theme, such as there is, of Serpent Isle is striving for that balance. Balance is something the Avatar is not inherently all about. The Olphidian civilization is a well-thought out concept and has the level of detail I'd expect from Origin.

Serpent Isle had it's own expansion pack, The Silver Seed. Using a magic amulet given to you by the monks, the Avatar and friends travel back in time to near the end of the War of Imbalance. It's a similar setup to the Forge of Virtue in that you are in a fairly self-contained area doing a bunch of quests. This time, though, instead of awarding the Avatar with a game breaking weapon and massive stats boost, you get a still incredibly strong weapon and a bunch of other good relics, including one massively game-breaking ring - the Ring of Reagents. In all Ultima games (With the exception of Ultima IX, sort of,) the magic system requires reagents to cast spells. They take up space and cost money. The Ring of Reagents gives you infinite reagents, meaning you can easily turn into a spell slinger as soon as you get your spell book.

Both parts of Ultima VII remain among my favorite RPGs. And with good reason. They both have engaging stories, interesting characters and locations. Both games have living, breathing worlds, the likes of which won't show up again in RPGs for many years. Both games add quite a bit to the series as a whole and seemingly set up what looked to be an interesting story arc for the final installments of the series. The Guardian, while a bit passive aggressive, makes an good, omnipresent opponent who doesn't dip too far into the big bag of villain cliches. While you only see him in the flesh during the endings of both parts of Ultima VII, he makes his presence known through taunting the Avatar and through his effect on his followers in the Fellowship. He's an adversary who you learn little about in spite of his constant presence.

In a way, all those good points make the disappointment of Ultima VIII and the jaw dropping idiocy of Ultima IX all the more tragic. I'd originally planned to cover the end of the series in a single update, but it would end up being far too long. So join me next time, when I'll unleash years of pent up frustration on the final games of the Ultima series.

          The rise of artificial intelligence: what does it mean for development?   

Video: Artificial intelligence and the SDGs (International Telecommunication Union)

Along with my colleagues on the ICT sector team of the World Bank, I firmly believe that ICTs can play a critical role in supporting development. But I am also aware that professionals on other sector teams may not necessarily share the same enthusiasm.

Typically, there are two arguments against ICTs for development. First, to properly reap the benefits of ICTs, countries need to be equipped with basic communication and other digital service delivery infrastructure, which remains a challenge for many of our low-income clients. Second, we need to be mindful of the growing divide between digital-ready groups vs. the rest of the population, and how it may exacerbate broader socio-economic inequality.

These concerns certainly apply to artificial intelligence (AI), which has recently re-emerged as an exciting frontier of technological innovation. In a nutshell, artificial intelligence is intelligence exhibited by machines. Unlike the several “AI winters” of the past decades, AI technologies really seem to be taking off this time. This may be promising news, but it challenges us to more clearly validate the vision of ICT for development, while incorporating the potential impact of AI.

It is probably too early to figure out whether AI will be blessing or a curse for international development… or perhaps this type of binary framing may not be the best approach. Rather than providing a definite answer, I’d like to share some thoughts on what AI means for ICT and development.

AI and the Vision of ICT for Development

Fundamentally, the vision of ICT for development is rooted in the idea that universal access to information is critical to development. That is why ICT projects at development finance institutions share the ultimate goal of driving down the cost of information. However, we have observed several notable features of the present information age: 1) there is a gigantic amount of data to analyze, which is growing at an unprecedented rate and 2) in the highly complex challenges of our world, it is almost impossible to discover structures in raw data that can be described as simple equations, for example when finding cures for cancer or predicting natural disasters.

This calls for a new powerful tool to convert unstructured information into actionable knowledge, which is expected to be greatly aided by artificial intelligence. For instance, machine learning, one of the fastest-evolving subfields in AI research, provides feature predictions with greatly enhanced accuracies at much lower costs. As an example, we can train a machine with a lot of pictures, so that it can later tell which photos have dogs in it or not, without a human’s prior algorithmic input.

To summarize, AI promises to achieve the vision of ICT for development much more effectively. Then, what are some practical areas of its usage?

AI for development: areas of application

Since AI research is rapidly progressing, it is challenging to get a clear sense of all the different ways AI could be applied to development work in the future; nonetheless, the following are a couple areas where current AI technologies are expected to provide significant added-value.

First, AI allows us to develop innovative new solutions to many complex problems faced by developing countries. As an example, a malaria test traditionally requires a well-trained medical professional who analyzes blood samples under a microscope. In Uganda, an experiment showed that real-time and high-accuracy malaria diagnoses are possible with machines running on low-powered devices such as Android phones.

Secondly, AI could make significant contributions to designing effective development policies by enabling accurate predictions at lower costs. One promising example is the case of the US-based startup called Descartes. The company uses satellite imagery and machine learning to make corn yield forecasts in the US. They use spectral information to measure chlorophyll levels of corn, which is then used to estimate corn production. Their projections have proven to be consistently more accurate than the survey-based estimates used by the US Department of Agriculture. This kind of revolution in prediction has great potential to help developing economies design more effective policies, including for mitigating the impact of natural disasters.

Looking forward – Toward the democratization of AI?

Many assume that it is too early to talk about AI in the developing world, but the mainstreaming of AI may happen sooner than most people would assume. Years ago, some tech visionaries already envisioned that AI would soon become a commodity like electricity. And this year, Google revealed TensorFlow Lite, the first software of its kind that runs machine learning models on individual smartphones. Further, Google is working on the AutoML project, an initiative to leverage machine learning to automate the process of designing machine learning models themselves.

As always, new technology can be liberating and disruptive, and the outcome will largely depend on our own ability to use it wisely. Despite the uncertainty, AI provides another exciting opportunity for the ICT sector to leverage technological innovation for the benefit of the world’s marginalized populations.

          Mobility-Startup Unu: Elektro-Roller sind nur der Anfang   

Das Startup Unu verpasst seinem E-Roller ein Facelift. Im Rahmen eines kleinen Launch-Events sprachen wir mit den Gründern. Eines wird klar: Sie haben große Pläne – und der E-Roller ist nur der Anfang.

Unu: Neues E-Roller-Modell mit Bosch-Motor

Das Startup Unu Motors, das 2013 in München gegründet wurde und 2015 seine Firmenzentrale nach Berlin verlegt hat, zeigte in einem hippen Kreuzberger Lokal die neueste Version seines erschwinglichen Elektrorollers. Mit dem Facelift erhält der recht kostengünstige Elektroroller neben einer größeren Auswahl an Farben und einer längeren Sitzbank einen komplett neuen Bosch-Antrieb.

Wie sein Vorgänger kann das neue Modell, das intern „Unu 1.1“ genannt wird, in drei Leistungsstufen erstanden werden: mit 1.000, 2.000 und 3.000 Watt – preislich liegen die Roller zwischen 1.799 Euro für die kleinste Variante und 2.799 Euro für den größten Roller. Die recht günstigen Preise ab 1.799 Euro kann das Unternehmen per Direktvertrieb erreichen. Man verzichtet auf Zwischenhändler und Vertrieb, die Roller lassen sich ausschließlich per Onlineshop bestellen. Das fertige Fahrzeug wird per DHL zum Kunden – auf Wunsch inklusive Nummernschild – nach Hause geliefert. Bei Interesse an einer Probefahrt kann ein Termin mit einem von 45 „Unu-Pioneers“ vereinbart werden, die in den wichtigsten deutschen Städten vertreten sind.

Die integrierte Batterie ist bei jedem Modell gleich groß und soll im Schnitt für 50 Kilometer ausreichen. Optional könnt ihr auch eine zweite Batterie für 700 Euro nachkaufen und unter dem Sitz einbauen – gleichzeitig lassen die Akkus sich indes nicht nutzen. Zum Wechsel muss der Stecker umgesteckt werden, das ist aber schnell erledigt.

Im Unterschied zu Modellen einiger anderer Elektroroller-Anbieter kann das Aufladen des Akkus einfacher nicht sein. Denn der Energiespeicher lässt sich bequem an einer herkömmlichen Steckdose zuhause oder im Büro aufladen. Ein voller Ladezyklus dauert fünf Stunden. Durch das Direktvertriebsmodell ist das Unternehmen näher am Kunden und hört auf Kritik: Beim neuen Modell ist das Ladegerät daher im Vergleich zum Vorgänger, das einen aktiven Lüfter an Bord hatte, durch passive Kühlung vollkommen leise.

Auf die Frage, wie sie zur Roller-Sharing-Firma Coup stehen, war die Antwort Blums überraschend positiv. Dank Coup würden viele erst auf die E-Roller aufmerksam gemacht. Der eine oder andere Coup-Kunde wünsche sich mehr Unabhängigkeit und Flexibilität – hier kommt ein eigener E-Roller ins Spiel. Im Unterschied zu den bei Coup eingesetzten Gogoro-Rollern, die in Deutschland nicht ohne Weiteres zu kaufen sind, und den E-Scootern von Emco, die ab 3.500 Euro aufwärts kosten, kann der Unu-Roller schon ab knapp 1.800 Euro erstanden werden.

Laut Pascal Blum, einem der Unu-Gründer, würde man mit den E-Rollern weniger die eingefleischten Vespa-Fans erreichen.  Bei denen müsse es dazugehören, dass Roller im klassischen italienischen  Vespa-Design daherkommen und knattern und stinken. Der Unu-Roller würde in erster Linie Menschen ansprechen, die umweltschonend und schnell von A nach B kommen wollen, ohne auf ein ansprechendes Roller-Design zu verzichten.

Unu: Expansion nach Frankreich und die Niederlande

Anfang 2017 haben die Gründer 7,5 Millionen Euro weitere Investorengelder einsammeln können. Bei der Auswahl der Investoren achten die Jungunternehmer darauf, dass keine Interessenskonflikte entstehen, weshalb sie beispielsweise Angebote von Investoren aus der Branche abgelehnt hätten. Man wolle bei der Planung unabhängig von äußeren Einflüssen bleiben, erklärte Mitgründer Pascal Blum. Nichtsdestotrotz kooperiere das Unternehmen mit anderen Unternehmen aus dem Sektor: Unu-Besitzer können sich für Reparatur- und Wartungsarbeiten beispielsweise an einen Bosch-Service-Partner wenden.

Mit den neuen Geldern haben die Jungunternehmer in den letzten Monaten den Schritt in die nach Angaben von Unu größten europäischen Rollermärkte gewagt: Frankreich und die Niederlande. In Frankreich müsse man Blum zufolge noch etwas Aufklärungsarbeit leisten und potenziellen Kunden erklären, dass es Elektroroller gebe. Dennoch sei das Interesse so groß, dass die in Frankreich agierenden Pioniere mit der Terminvergabe nicht hinterherkämen. Über 1.000 Interessenten hätten sich für Probefahrten angemeldet – aus diesem Anlass wurde ein Pop-up-Store in Paris eröffnet.

In den Niederlanden sei man auf ein anderes Hindernis gestoßen: Dort sind besonders Roller beliebt, die nur bis zu 25 Kilometer pro Stunde fahren dürfen. Der Grund sei, dass man mit ihnen auf Radwegen fahren dürfe – ohne Helm und Führerschein. Um dieses Marktsegment zu bedienen, habe man die Roller kurzerhand mit einer Drosselung versehen. Die Markteinstiege seien bislang sehr gut angelaufen. Blum rechnet damit, dass die neuen Märkte bald einen Umsatz von 50 Prozent des Unternehmensumsatz ausmachen werden.

Unu Motors: Der Roller ist nur das erste Produkt

„Wir haben eine große Vision von Urban Mobility.“

Die drei Gründer Pascal Blum, Elias Atahi, und Mathieu Caudal sehen ihr Unternehmen nicht als E-Roller-Firma, sondern als Mobilitäts-Unternehmen, von dem der Roller das erste Produkt ist. Sie haben weit größere Ziele: Lösungen für den urbanen Lebensraum zu entwickeln, mit denen das Leben von Menschen verbessert werden soll. Die Gründer hatten lange überlegt, welches Verkehrsmittel ideal für den Stadtverkehr sei, um Staus zu umgehen, rasch einen Parkplatz zu finden und dabei noch umweltfreundlich zu sein. Der kompakte, wendige Roller war die Lösung. Nicht zuletzt dürfte das Auslandsstudium Blums und Atahis in Peking zur Wahl des Rollers beigetragen haben – in der Millionenmetropole sind E-Roller das ideale Verkehrsmittel, um durch den Verkehrsdschungel zu kommen.

Einer der ersten Roller-Kunden war der Tesla-Deutschland Chef, an den Blum herangetreten war, um vom ihm zu erfahren, wie Tesla das Problem mit Reparaturen und Services gelöst hat. Dieser konnte ihm aber auch nicht helfen, da Tesla damals noch alle seine Autos im Reparaturfall nach München lieferte. Er war aber heiß darauf, einen der ersten 50 mit der Hand nummerierten Elektroller-Prototypen sein Eigen zu nennen.

Die nächste Etappe stellt die Vorstellung eines voll vernetzten Produkts dar, das sich für alle erdenklichen Sharing-Modelle eignen soll. An diesem Projekt arbeite die Hälfte des mittlerweile 50-köpfigen Teams im Kreuzberger Hauptquartier am Halleschen Tor. Ein Blick auf die Stellenausschreibungen zeigt, dass Unu in den nächsten Monaten massiv weiter wachsen wird – das Unternehmen hat aktuell über 20 Vollzeitstellen ausgeschrieben.  Insbesondere die Software-Entwicklung und der Sales-Bereich sollen ausgebaut werden.

In puncto Produktentwicklung sei man laut Blum unter anderem dabei, die eigenen Roller zu vernetzen – man setze neben der Elektromobilität auf die weiteren Säulen „autonomes Fahren“, „Vernetzung“ und „Sharing“. Das Unu-Entwickler-Team arbeite zudem derzeit an einer eigenen Software-Plattform, mit der sich die Roller beispielsweise auch für Sharing-Dienst eignen würden. Konkrete Details wollte Blum aber nicht herausrücken – er verriet allerdings, dass die Plattform nicht auf Android basieren werde.

Wann Unu seine ersten vernetzten Produkte vorstellen wird, ist unklar. Blum wollte sich diesbezüglich nicht festlegen, kündigte aber an, dass man eine solide und funktionierende Plattform auf die Beine stellen wolle.

          Double bubble trouble in China   

The deleveraging of the Chinese economy has always seemed likely to be a long and troublesome saga, lasting many years or even decades if it is to prove successful. The latest episode involves a sudden collapse in domestic “A” shares, which have dropped by 19 per cent in less than a fortnight, and have triggered what has been widely described as an “emergency” easing in monetary policy this weekend.

          „Höchstgradig peinlich“: Zu Guttenberg im Interview über Deutschlands Versagen bei der Digitalisierung   

zu guttenberg

Er war der Popstar unter den deutschen Politikern. Erst Wirtschaftsminister, dann Verteidigungsminister. Nicht wenige Beobachter sahen in ihm bereits den kommenden Kanzler. Dann entlarvten Experten seine Doktorarbeit als Plagiat und urplötzlich war Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg verschwunden von der politischen Bühne. Sechs Jahre ist das jetzt her.

Inzwischen hält ihn sein persönlicher Karrierekiller nicht mehr davon ab, Missstände und Fehlentwicklungen in der Politik schonungslos zu benennen. Im Interview mit Business Insider prangert zu Guttenberg die „Inkompetenz“ von US-Präsident Donald Trump an und warnt vor Russland, das „in eine Diktatur abgeglitten“ sei. Er spricht über die Gefahren des Cyberspace, eine mögliche Atommacht Türkei und ein Treffen mit Tesla-Gründer Elon Musk.

Business Insider: Herr zu Guttenberg, stellen Sie sich einen Raum vor, in dem Sie Donald  Trump, Wladimir Putin und Recep Tayyip Erdogan antreffen. Wem würden Sie die Hand reichen?

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg: „Allen. Narzissten, Autokraten oder selbst Diktatoren den Handschlag zu verweigern, würde die Option beschneiden, einen notwendig kritischen Dialog mit Ihnen zu führen.“

BI: Und auf wen gingen Sie als erstes zu?

zu Guttenberg: „Ich würde wohl mit Trump beginnen.“

BI: Weshalb gerade er?

zu Guttenberg: „Unabhängig von seinem erratischen Handeln und offensichtlicher Inkompetenz repräsentiert er ein Land, dem wir Deutschen unter den drei genannten Vertretern am meisten zu verdanken haben. Selbst unter  Trump sind die USA im Gegensatz zu den beiden anderen Ländern noch nicht in eine Autokratie, beziehungsweise im Falle Russlands in eine Diktatur abgeglitten.“

BI: Aus Sicht des ehemaligen Bundesverteidigungsministers: Welches dieser Länder gefährdet den Weltfrieden am meisten?

zu Guttenberg: „Die Türkei derzeit am wenigsten — trotz aller unerträglichen innenpolitischen Entwicklungen. Solange es nicht zu einem offenen Konflikt um die Vorherrschaft im Nahen und Mittleren Osten kommt. Bei der Türkei handelt es sich um keine Atommacht und man kann nur hoffen, dass es so bleibt. Das Gefährdungspotential Russlands und der USA könnte unterschiedlicher kaum sein, hängt aber miteinander zusammen.

Je mehr die USA unter der derzeitigen Regierung internationale Vereinbarungen und Bündnisse in Frage stellen, umso eher kann Russland durch aggressives Auftreten — etwa in der Ostukraine und in Syrien — sein Interessenspektrum erweitern und von der wirtschaftlichen Malaise im eigenen Land ablenken. Je uneiniger der Westen agiert, desto höher ist die Gefahr dauerhafter Instabilität innerhalb und außerhalb europäischer Grenzen.“

BI: Was muss die Welt, was muss Europa tun, um dem Einhalt zu gebieten?

zu Guttenberg: „Sklerotische multinationale Institutionen reformieren, die notwendigen  Beiträge zur Verteidigungsfähigkeit leisten sowie der grassierenden  transatlantischen Uneinigkeit entschieden entgegenwirken.“

BI: Angenommen, Sie könnten daran mitwirken: Auf welchen politischen Posten  würden Sie sich zurückwünschen?

zu Guttenberg: „Auf keinen, da die Möglichkeit der Einflussnahme und der streitbaren  Meinungsäußerung nicht alleine an politische Ämter gebunden ist. Im Gegenteil: Debatten über die Zukunft der globalen, aber auch europäischen Ordnung alleine den Amtsträgern zu überlassen, wäre fahrlässig und ist in meinen Augen nicht mit der Verantwortung zu  vereinbaren, die wir für nächste Generationen an jeder Stelle unserer Gesellschaft tragen.“

BI: Was ist heutzutage eigentlich die größte Trumpfkarte in der  Weltpolitik: militärische Stärke, Diplomatie oder wirtschaftliche Macht?

zu Guttenberg: „Diplomatie ist das Mittel der Begrenzung, aber gegebenenfalls auch  aktiven Nutzbarmachung der anderen beiden Faktoren. Deshalb ist die Aneinanderreihung der drei Punkte irreführend. Bereits heute würde ich eine weitere Komponente nennen: das Beherrschen des Cyberspaces — ein so gefährlicher wie unterschätzter Ausgangspunkt von Macht, der auch nicht zwingend an staatliche Akteure gebunden ist.“

BI: Klingt so, als würden Sie sich für eine neue politische Aufgabe interessieren. Wann haben Sie begonnen, Pläne für ein Comeback zu schmieden?

zu Guttenberg: „Gar nicht. Man braucht schon viel Phantasie, um die Unterstützung der  Union mit einigen wenigen Wahlkampfauftritten als politisches Comeback zu bezeichnen.“

BI: Es heißt, Sie würden Zugpferd der CSU im Wahlkampf. Was hat man sich  darunter vorzustellen?

zu Guttenberg: „Angesichts meiner heutigen Distanz zur Tagespolitik und sechsjähriger  politischer Entwöhnung bin ich eher ein kurzzeitig auftretender Ackergaul.“

BI: Welche persönlichen Interessen verfolgen Sie dabei?

zu Guttenberg: „Einen Beitrag zur Wiederwahl der Bundeskanzlerin zu leisten und fünf  Kilo Gewicht zu verlieren in der Hitze bayerischer Bierzelte.“

BI: Finden Sie selbst keinen Gefallen an Angela Merkels Job?

zu Guttenberg: „Ich finde Gefallen an der Idee, dass sie ihren Job weitermacht. Die Unterstützung findet unzweifelhaft statt.“

BI: Hängt Ihnen die Affäre um Ihre plagiierte Doktorarbeit eigentlich noch  nach?

zu Guttenberg: „Bei einigen ja, bei vielen nicht. Beides ist nachvollziehbar. Für mich  selbst aber ist das Thema nach sechs Jahren, nachdem ich harte Konsequenzen gezogen und erfahren habe, abgeschlossen. Wenn dies einigen nicht passt, kann ich denen auch nicht helfen.“

BI: Sie sind von Deutschland aus in die USA übergesiedelt. Was hat Amerika, was Deutschland unbedingt bräuchte?

zu Guttenberg: „Wenn man sechs Jahre in einem Land mit maroder Infrastruktur,  desorganisierter Verwaltung und einem lachhaften Sozial- und Gesundheitssystem lebt, müsste man die Frage eigentlich umgekehrt stellen. Was es in den USA deutlich weniger gibt, sind Ansätze von moralinsaurer Besserwisserei, Schadenfreude und Neid. Zudem findet man eine höhere Risikofreude, gerade in unternehmerischen Belangen, was auch einen positiveren Umgang mit dem Scheitern vielversprechender Ideen nach sich zieht.“

BI: Sie waren mal Bundeswirtschaftsminister: Wie erklären Sie den Menschen  im Silicon Valley, dass Deutschland ein Breitbandnetz auf dem Stand  eines Entwicklungslandes hat?

zu Guttenberg: „Das ist richtig und höchstgradig peinlich für eine führende Wirtschaftsnation. Südkorea und Japan sind uns beispielsweise meilenweit voraus. In den USA ist die Abdeckung in der Fläche aber teilweise auch bizarr schlecht.“

BI: Seitdem Trump Präsident ist, sagt man das auch über andere Bereiche des Landes. Inwiefern haben sich die USA unter ihm verändert?

zu Guttenberg: „Die politischen Lager stehen sich noch unversöhnlicher gegenüber und die wachsende Polarisierung macht vor kaum einen Teil der Gesellschaft Halt. Hinzu kommt die wachsende Unberechenbarkeit auf dem internationalen Parkett. Ich mache mir Sorgen, wie sehr die nach innen gerichtete, chaotische Politik der ersten Monate isolationistische Befindlichkeiten in breiten Teilen der Bevölkerung verstärkt.“

BI: Es wirkt fast so, als müssten zunehmend Unternehmerpersönlichkeiten und technische Pioniere das Ansehen der USA in der Welt bewahren. Welcher amerikanische Zeitgeist hat Sie am meisten inspiriert?

zu Guttenberg: „Ich mag den Begriff Zeitgeist nicht, da dessen Inhalte allzu schnell obsolet sind. Inspirierend bleibt der ungebändigte Wille vieler Amerikaner zur Innovation — auch mit der Konsequenz, sich nötigenfalls selbst neu zu erfinden. Gekoppelt mit einer kreativen Risikobereitschaft und einem beispielgebenden Leistungsbewusstsein.“

BI: Versuchen wir die Eingangsfrage leicht abzuwandeln: Sie stehen in einem  Raum mit Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Tim Cook und Sundar Pichai. Mit wem  würden Sie am liebsten ein Bier trinken?

zu Guttenberg: „Mit fast allen habe ich bereits etwas getrunken. Lediglich mit  Elon Musk etwas anderes als Wasser.“

          Nissan lança novo Leaf em setembro   

O fabricante japonês confirmou que a segunda geração do elétrico hatchback irá ser lançado a 6 de setembro, embora não avance mais detalhes sobre o mesmo. O novo modelo Leaf terá inspiração estilística no IDS Concept, o showcar de 2015 de cinco portas e de aparência agressiva, com propulsão elétrica e tecnologia de condução autónoma, e sairá para o mercado em 2018, com uma expectável melhoria no alcance de 172 kms oferecida pelo modelo atual. O fabricante de Yokohama revelou recentemente que o novo Leaf estará disponível com a tecnologia de assistência à condução ProPilot, que irá gerir a aceleração, a travagem e a direção numa só via na auto-estrada de modo a aumentar a segurança e diminuir o stress no condutor. Por sua vez, o CEO da Nissan, Carlos Ghosn, assumiu o desenvolvimento dos elétricos como um pilar dos planos futuros da empresa e, como primeiro modelo elétrico de produção em massa, o Leaf mantém um natural lugar especial no coração da marca. De salientar que este segmento tem adversários de peso para o novo Nissan Leaf, tais como o Chevrolet Bolt EV,o Hyundai Ioniq, a nova geração Volkswagen E-Golf e ainda o Model 3 da Tesla.

          What new US "enhanced security measures" will mean for Irish travelers   

The US Department of Homeland Security are set to enhance security measures on all incoming commercial flights to the US in an attempt to prevent a further ban of electronics on flights, it was announced yesterday.

Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly revealed that there will be heightened security standards on the some 2,100 flights coming into the US daily from 280 airports across 105 countries. It is believed that airlines will be given 21 days to put the relevant measures in place while having 120 days to implement further security measures.

The measures are being introduced in an attempt to prevent the need to implement an electronics ban on flights, a measure that was introduced in March in ten airports across eight countries, asking passengers to place electronic items larger than a cell phone in checked baggage instead of in carry-on bags.

“With this announcement, we send a clear message that inaction is not an option,” Kelly said.

“Those who choose not to cooperate or are slow to adopt these measures could be subject to other restrictions—including a ban on electronic devices on their airplanes, or even a suspension of their flights to the United States.

“However, we expect all airlines will work with us to keep their aircraft, their crew, and their passengers safe. I have spent months engaging with our closest allies and foreign partners on this issue, and many of them have expressed strong support for this effort.”

The security measures are said to include enhancing overall passenger screening, heightening the screening of electronic devices, increasing security protocol around aircraft themselves as well as the passenger areas in airports, and establishing further preclearance locations.

The Republic of Ireland is already one of the countries that offers pre-clearance through US immigration and customs in Dublin and Shannon airports, where passengers may already be asked to power on electronic devices to ensure that they are working and not packed with explosives. It is believed that this practise may become more common under the new measures.

Kelly stated that the new measures will be both “seen and unseen” and that they will be put in place without any further trouble for passengers attempting to get to the US.

“While the actions we are announcing today will improve the security of U.S.-bound flights, I am hopeful other nations will follow suit,” Kelly continued.

“Unless we all raise our security standards, terrorists—who see commercial aviation as the greatest takedown—will find and attack the weakest link.

“Together, we have the opportunity to raise the baseline on aviation security globally, and we can do it in a manner that will not unduly inconvenience the flying public.”

The new measures were announced on the same day that President Trump’s travel ban came into play, placing a temporary suspension on entry to the US for foreign nationals from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. The Executive Order “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” was implemented at 8 pm on Thursday despite last ditch efforts in Hawaii to delay it further.

          Will the Electric Car Be Killed Again? What Trump's Presidency Means for Electric Car Technology   

Why is the electric car is so fast to adapt? Compared to traditional fuel cars, the electric car goes through numerous changes in a given time. That's because at its heart an electric car is a gadget, and technological upgrades in gadgets are rapid. For example, a typical electric car can go about 100 miles on one charge. In a year this is expected to double with just a small upgrade to the technology at a low cost. That is the power and clear advantage of an electric car. It can be subjected to numerous innovations and quickly.


So what does Trump's presidency mean in all this? Will it sustain the new technology or grow leaps and bounds?


His Fossil-Forward energy approach should take some pressure off of automobile manufacturers. There will be a softening of the energy-efficiency targets set under Obama's administration. The country's largest automobile group has requested that the Trump government roll back the energy-efficiency targets to 2025.


Softening targets might mean selling more SUVs. The reins of fuel economics are tightening; this has forced automaking giants like Ford, The Nissan cars dealer and General Motors to sell smaller vehicles along with electric cars in order to balance out their energy-inefficient larger trucks. But this won't be the end of the electric car. In some ways, selling more SUVs could really help with the heightened fuel economy standards.


Since larger vehicles like trucks and SUVs carry a significantly larger profit margin, automotive manufacturers prefer selling these bigger vehicles over smaller ones like family wagons. In addition, more optional accessories means a higher profit margin.


The cornerstone for this is rather simple: cheaper fuel. Fuel efficiency is a rather sluggish system and little change happens in a standard environment. It really tend to follow gas prices. Historically, fuel efficiency standards have had a very sluggish growth compared to other technologies. It has always required a federal regulatory "nudge" to make critical developments. Mileage has pretty much plateaued through most of the last century; it jumped up significantly after the oil shocks of the 1970s and following the first federal fuel-efficiency regulatory standards. Recently, the fuel efficiency of newly-manufactured vehicles has increased again as gas prices have surged -- although the oil crash has significantly slowed this forward momentum.


There is always the threat that Trump's brash foreign policy will renew sanctions on Iran and Middle Eastern regions and increase the likelihood of a surge in oil prices. The US has always been a net importer of oil, even in spite of the shale boom.


Electric vehicles continue to make technological innovations, greatly increasing driving ranges and reducing price ranges. It has been forecast that the number and variety of electric vehicles to hit the market will keep rising throughout this decade and the next.


Major automotive companies - the most obvious being Tesla, but also BMW and even GM - have invested a great deal of money and reputation in their respective models of electric vehicles. GM's Chevy Bolt is making waves and winning multiple awards, although it hasn't even hit showrooms yet.


The US accounts for only 1/5th of global vehicle sales. Rapidly-growing markets with a need for energy-efficient vehicles, such as China, Japan and India, have reason to embrace this new technology. In order to sustain growth in the face of ever-increasing fuel dependence from foreign soils, these changes would be welcome.


California has much stricter fuel-economy targets than the federal government, and the fact that 1 out of every 8 new US vehicle registrations is in California shows a positive side to this.


Although it might seem that the momentum on fuel efficiency -- the backbone of electric car technology -- would slow down under Trump's administration, the global automotive players have enough incentive to carry on their work on next-gen fuel-efficient vehicles.

          Comment on Question: Does ANYONE Still Believe in Elio Motors? by William Barnes   
^Jeff Bezos has been dropping his wallet quite a bit lately. I agree with your comment that someone else needs to buy this and get it on the road, I don't want the $7k version but the $20k self driving version - so " google / apple "etc needs to step in. I don't think this fits Tesla business model. I commute in ATL every day. Put a highly efficient low cost self driving car in the middle class commuters hands and the interstate will change in 3 years. William

          Change.   

It has been about a year since I last posted here and you can see a dramatic decrease over the year leading up to that post.
I struggled with having nothing to say.
I struggled with feeling completely lost as an artist.
I struggled with balancing a "real job" with a studio practice and all the things I love; writing, curating, talking with artists, interviewing...

 A lot has happened and a lot has changed-   I know not if anyone will even read this post.

But I find myself sitting in my studio, still not sure what I am doing, but finding a voice again. Feeling the desire to reach out and communicate again. To return to the community building that this blog once did for me along with all the other things I had to let go of.

So a few things to say:

I have found myself increasingly being pulled away from textiles- which is terrifying since my entire career is deeply rooted in textiles. But I am not trained as a textile artist, I fell into textiles as it made sense to me conceptually for many years for many works.
Now it does not.
I found myself asking "Why does this need to be stitched?" "Why is the drawing or photograph not enough?" I found myself with no answer. I found myself terrified.

This, truthfully, led me into a tailspin of uncertainty. Who am I if I am not the chick that makes those giant embroideries? Am I a photographer again even though I abandoned that idea so long ago? What the hell am I doing with a pencil in my hand?
It has been a giant struggle and I have not landed but I have started to accept and embrace that I am a different artist now and as always am trying to follow my instincts.

So I hope someone is still there. I hope there is community to still be a part of and help to create.

          Oprah's Favorite Things   
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most popular talk show hosts in American television history. As her show enters its 21rst season, she has millions of viewers who tune in each day. One of her most popular segments is her "Favorite Things" holiday show. During this show, Oprah shares with the studio and television audience some of her favorite things including jewelry, gadgets and vacation getaways.

People love this show because on the "Favorite Things" episode, audience members get the extravagant gifts that Oprah displays. Around 300 audience members are showered with gifts each holiday episode. The amount varies, but Oprah audience members can each expect to receive between $4,000 and $15,000 worth of gifts. But, Oprah is a big winner as well. The 2004 episode of "Oprah's Favorite Things" had the highest ratings ever for a "Favorite Things" episode and was the second highest rated episode for the season.

Oprah has been doing her "Favorite Things" episode since 1999. Guests received a set of Illumination Ritual Candles, each one to inspire different feelings like love, peace and passion and each candle contained a tiny gemstone inside. The 12-candle set was valued at $169.95. Dog owners were no doubt thrilled with the Fifi and Romeo Pet Clothing ($150 and up) - one of Oprah's favorite things of 1999. One of the most extravagant gifts that year was a Susan Abbott Personalized Painting, ranging from $5,000 and up. Oprah loved the Susan Abbott painting given to her by author Sarah Ban Breathnach.

In 2000, Oprah added many hi-tech gadgets like the Motorola Talkabout pager (priced at $179), so audience members could receive email while on the go. Another favorite thing from 2000 was the book equivalent of the iPod, the Gemstar REB1100 eBook from RCA ($299). The Gemstar let users download up to 8,000 book pages, so they never had to carry around a book again.

The BlissLabs Glamour Gloves ($44) and Gel ($22) was one of Oprah's favorite things in 2002. The Panasonic 4-in-1 Digital Camera from Frontgate ($449) was also a big hit that year. The camera, the size of a credit card, takes pictures and video, but can also be used as a MP3 player and audio recorder.

In 2003, Oprah decided to do two episodes of her favorite things segment - one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Spring audience members got an Apple iPod ($399), Silhouette Minimal X Sunglasses ($175-$250), and a Hewlett Packard Digital Camera, Printer and Dock (total value $730) among other items. Fall audience members racked up with UGG Classic Short Boots ($110), a Philip Stein Teslar Watch ($595), and a Sony DCR-DVD200 Handycam ($1000).

2004 was a very special Favorite Things segment for Oprah. She convinced 300 teachers to attend her show, under the premise of talking about education and a teacher's daily routine. Instead, she surprised them with the Favorite Things episode. The teachers received gifts such as a Sony VAIO S260 notebook computer, a Dell 30" wide-screen LCD television, a Maytag Neptune Top-Load Washer and Drying Center, and a trip for two to the exclusive Miraval Resort and Spa. Total gift amount for each teacher was about $15,000 - much more than the previous year total of $4,800. Oprah, a supporter of education and teachers, knew the teachers were worth every penny.

In 2005, Oprah decided to make her favorite things audience up of Katrina relief workers. Among the gifts were Sony VAIO® FJ Notebook, Kashwére® Shawl Collar Robe, BlackBerry 7105T™ from T-Mobile, and a couple of Oprah's favorites from 2004, UGG Australia's Uptown Boot and an Apple iPod. While considerably less than the year before, the 2005 recipients still received over $7,000 worth of items.

Probably due in part to Oprah's television audience as well as her personal appeal, each year the manufacturer's of the items found on Oprah's favorite things donate all the gifts. But they reap great benefits from doing so. They get television exposure and an immediate increase in sales after each episode. Companies like Sephora and Macy's have both publically stated that as soon as Oprah mentions one of their products, people are coming in the stores in droves to get it.

So in the end, it is a win-win situation. The manufacturers see increased sales, the audience gets great gifts, and Oprah just keeps on getting more and more popular with her viewing audience.

          An analogy for self-driving cars   
This is Joseph

I see this sentiment a lot with self-driving cars:
Many industry observers, yours truly included, believe autonomous vehicles have the potential to be far more disruptive than EVs, because they upend the logic of automobile ownership. Most cars sit idle at least 20 hours a day, which is incredible wasteful. But if you could simply summon a private, robot car at will, utilization would increase. This, in turn, has the potential to make mobility much cheaper — it’s public transportation on steroids!
I am not going to say that this idea is wrong.   But let's consider something else that is idle 20 hours per day, has both public and private versions, and there could be efficiencies in reducing duplication of facilities.  I speak of the restroom.

It is immediately obvious that we could make plumbing a lot more efficient if we had a public restroom building on each block and no restrooms in houses.  Or shared restrooms for hotels and apartments.  Restrooms spend a lot of time empty and we could make houses smaller/cheaper if we did not include them.

Why don't we do this?
  1. Queuing -- people often want to use the shower or toilet at similar times of the day (say the morning before work)
  2. Convenience -- even if the walk is short, it's shorter to have the toilet inside your own house
  3. Upkeep -- who is responsible for cleaning and repairing the facilities, especially at 2 am when somebody gets sick
  4. Privacy -- people like private spaces
  5. Customization -- maybe you want a handicapped shower or a bigger mirror
This doesn't mean we don't have public restrooms.  We do.  But we are also in no danger of replacing the personally owned restroom with the public version.  And I think a lot of the same objection apply to this transition.  

Now this is an analogy -- it's not exact.  But I think we can immediately see that there are reasons that the robot car model might have issues with implementation.  Now, this doesn't mean people won't own their own robot cars -- they sure will.  But the public transportation fleet of robot cars is going to either be a company or the government (today's options).  

So maybe this innovation will happen.  But it would be most successful among income constrained urban dwellers.  These are also people most likely to share other things.  But the road to instantly summoned robot cars is not absolutely clear without a lot more coordination than I expect to see.

          'Shark Tank' judge Chris Sacca apologizes for helping make tech hostile to women — after being accused of inappropriately touching a female investor   

Chris Sacca Twitter

A judge from ABC's 'Shark Tank' published a cryptic apology hours before an explosive New York Times article reported he had inappropriately touched a female entrepreneur.

Chris Sacca—who retired from startup investing as well as his role on "Shark Tank" in April— wrote Thursday that he "personally contributed" to making the tech industry "inhospitable for women."

Sacca posted the apology note after he was contacted by the Times about female entrepreneur Susan Wu's accusation that he had touched her face without her permission at a tech event in 2009, the paper reported.

Sacca and ABC, which broadcasts "Shark Tank," did not respond to requests from Business Insider for comment. 

Wu, who is also an investor, told The Times that when Sacca touched her face, it made her feel uncomfortable. She also said she was propositioned in 2010 by Justin Caldbeck, the founder of Binary Capital, who has been accused of multiple cases of sexual harassment. 

"There is such a massive imbalance of power that women in the industry often end up in distressing situations,” Wu told the Times, in response to her experiences.

Sacca did not dispute Wu's account of his behavior, according to the Times. He also didn't specifically discuss it in his apology.

He did, however, tell the Times in a statement that he was “grateful to Susan and the other brave women sharing their stories. I’m confident the result of their courage will be long-overdue, lasting change.”

And in his post, Sacca apologized in a general fashion for behaving in ways that made women feel uncomfortable: 

"Particularly when reflecting upon my early years in Silicon Valley, there is no doubt I said and did things that made some women feel awkward, unwelcome, insecure, and/or discouraged. In social settings, under the guise of joking, being collegial, flirting, or having a good time, I undoubtedly caused some women to question themselves, retreat, feel alone, and worry they can’t be their authentic selves. By stupidly perpetuating a culture rife with busting chops, teasing, and peer pressure to go out drinking, I made some women feel self-conscious, anxious, and fear they might not be taken seriously."

 

Sacca was just one of several tech investors named by the Times in its article for behaving inappropriately toward women in the industry. In the wake of the article, 500 Startups announced that Dave McClure, its co-founder who was also named in the story, has stepped down from running the firm's day-to-day operations. 

The Times piece comes amid heightened attention to gender inequality and sexual harassment in the tech industry. Earlier in June, Travis Kalanick resigned as position as Uber's CEO after an investigation into the company's culture revealed multiple cases of sexual harassment at the company.

If latest reports are to be believed, the Tesla Model 3 electric sedan won’t meet its summer goal to start production. This has even led a Goldman Sachs analyst, David Tamberrino, to downgrade its stock to “sell.”
          Micro apartment units coming to Lake Nona   

A new apartment community coming to Lake Nona in winter of 2018 will feature micro apartment units, a Tesla ride-share program, a sky top lounge, 24-hour concierge and valet, and a pet spa and grooming area.

Groundbreaking for Pixon, formerly known as The Distillery, is scheduled to take place in September once all the proper permits are acquired. 

Tavistock Development Company said the 201-unit modern flat community will be situated on 4.25 acres at the southeast intersection of Tavistock Lakes Boulevard and Lake Nona Boulevard, near Lake Nona Town Center.

"Pixon’s main 11-story tower will connect to a three-story parking structure via an enclosed second-story walkway," the company said in a news release. "The community will feature access controlled buildings and elevators, 24-hour concierge and valet, in addition to 24-hour express maintenance and valet trash service. Pixon is pet friendly and will be home to a designated pet spa and grooming area."

Six of the 201 units will be 360 square-foot micro apartment units, 42 will be 560 square-foot studios, 52 will be 720 square-foot one-bedroom units, 101 will be 1,050 square-foot two-bedroom units, and there will be a 1,730-square-foot penthouse.

The units will be equipped with stainless steel appliances, 10 feet tall floor-to-ceiling windows, quartz counter tops, front load washers and dryers, wood floors and frameless glass showers.

The ground floor of the building will be reserved for a mixed-use commercial space that will include a bar/restaurant, a retail area and a cafe. An adjacent area will be a co-living space for residents to access and for special events.

Pre-leasing will begin in the summer of 2018.

          Este pequeño vehículo robótico autónomo cuenta con su propio drone y se encargará de patrullar las calles de Dubai   

O R3

Hemos llegado a un punto donde cualquier cosa, por más increíble que sea, en posible en Dubai. Desde hace varios años hemos visto verdaderas locuras que van desde bomberos en jetpack, la planta solar térmica más grande del mundo, robots policía, patrullas en coches de lujo y taxis con Tesla Model S, además del próximo despliegue de taxis voladores autónomos y la construcción del primer rascacielos giratorio. ¿Ahora que nos tiene preparado Dubai?

El Departamento de Policía de Dubai acaba de anunciar que a finales de año incorporarán a una flota de pequeños vehículos, los cuales funcionarán como unidades móviles de vigilancia y contarán con tecnología que les permitirá realizar diversas tareas de forma autónoma.

OTSAW O-R3

Este vehículo tiene el tamaño de un coche eléctrico de juguete para niños pero su atractivo se encuentra en sus capacidades, ya que cuenta con software biométrico para escanear a las personas y así determinar si se encuentra ante un posible criminal, además de escáner láser, cámara térmica, cámaras HD y GPS.

Este vehículo ha sido desarrollado por la startup con sede en Singapur 'OTSAW Digital', la cual lo ha bautizado como O-R3. Entre sus ventajas está el uso exclusivo de energía eléctrica para su operación, además de que cuenta con su propio drone que le ayudará en tareas de seguimiento aéreo en zonas donde el vehículo no pueda circular.

Cada uno de estos O-R3 se moverán de forma autónoma en un inicio en las zonas turísticas de Dubai, pero la idea es que se encuentren en toda la ciudad, cumpliendo así con el plan de que para 2030 el 25% de la fuerza policial sean robots.

Los vehículos también cuentan con la capacidad de recargarse por sí solos y de acuerdo a las declaraciones del general de división, Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, cada uno de estos vehículos serán usados para cumplir con tareas de bajo nivel y auxiliar al departamento en misiones de vigilancia y monitorización.

          States Betting on Giant Batteries to Cut Carbon   

Some states and electric power companies are rolling out a new weapon against fossil fuels — giant batteries.

A growing number of states are requiring large batteries to be used to store electricity to help expand wind and solar power. The trend is catching on quickly as at least three states have created energy storage targets or incentives so far this year.

Lawmakers in New York passed a bill last week requiring the state to create an energy storage target. Nevada passed a bill incentivizing energy storage in May, and Maryland passed an energy storage tax credit in April. Those measures follow California, Oregon, and Massachusetts, which have mandates for electricity storage in batteries.

Electric power plants have historically been America’s largest source of carbon pollution contributing to climate change. Today, electric power plants that run on both coal and natural gas emit large volumes of carbon dioxide — the primary cause of global warming.

But as more wind farms and solar power plants are built to help reduce climate pollution, electric power companies encounter one of the fundamental challenges with renewables: The flow of electricity from wind and solar farms isn’t steady — it fluctuates as the wind blows and the sun sets. Sometimes excess energy they produce goes to waste.

“We only produce solar electricity when the sun shines. We consume energy 24/7. We need to have means of supplying the electricity to consumers 24 hours a day. That’s one of the basic roles of energy storage,” said Janet Joseph, vice president of innovation and strategy for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.

Batteries help solve that problem.

If batteries are used to capture renewable power as it is generated, electric companies can use that stored electricity when it is needed the most, usually during the day when air conditioners are blasting and businesses have all their lights on. Today, electric power used for those high demand times comes from power plants running on natural gas.

{related}

The batteries that electric power companies use are huge. The Tesla PowerPack, for example, is composed of 16 pods that together weigh more than 3 tons and are 7 feet tall. The pods are daisy-chained together and provide hundreds of kilowatts of power.

New York officials say batteries are critical to the state’s goal of generating half of its electricity from renewables by 2030. As more states create energy storage incentives and targets, more power plants using fossil fuels are likely to be eventually replaced or supplemented with batteries, helping to cut the amount of time the power plants are used.

Jeremy Firestone, director of the Center for Carbon-free Power Integration at the University of Delaware, said mandates and incentives for energy storage in some of the most populous states will help reduce climate pollution and drive innovation. They will also help to lower energy storage costs as batteries are adopted more widely, just as costs for wind and solar installations have fallen as more have been built, he said.

“While climate is a ‘state’ goal, by leading the way and reducing the cost of storage, these states will facilitate the implementation of storage in other states and countries, leading to further climate benefits,” Firestone said.

Big companies are getting in the utility-scale solar game, including electric automaker Tesla. The company is producing large batteries that allow individual homes to store solar energy they’ve produced. Tesla is also building major utility-scale battery storage projects for electric companies in Hawaii, Connecticut and California.

Tesla partnered with Southern California Edison, a Los Angeles-area electric power company, to complete an energy storage facility in January large enough to supply electricity to 15,000 homes for four hours during times of highest electric power demand.

The project was built in response to the massive 2015 Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility leak, which jeopardized the supply of natural gas to electric power plants. The state required utilities to find other ways of generating power during gas supply disruptions.

“The idea was to have non-natural gas (electricity) generation in Southern California,” giving the company greater flexibility to generate electricity and prevent power disruption, said Vibhu Kaushik, manager for generation strategy at Southern California Edison.

The company also uses batteries to supplement energy from some natural gas power plants at times of peak electricity demand. The batteries have allowed the plants to reduce the time they operate by about half, cutting their greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent, Kaushik said.

In Arizona, which has no energy storage mandate, Arizona Public Service is conducting a test of energy storage used in both homes and at electric substations that will help the utility cope with the irregular flow of electricity from rooftop and utility-scale solar plants.

Arizona Public Service spokeswoman Annie Degraw said batteries help supplement the flow of power from a rooftop solar panel when a cloud blocks the sun, resulting in the panel producing less electricity for a few minutes.

The company is paying homeowners participating in the program a $30 monthly credit for 20 years to help test batteries connected to the power grid, Degraw said.

Many in the industry see a future when renewables and battery storage provide most of the electricity on America’s electric power grid. John Zahurancik, president of Virginia-based AES Energy Storage, which has built energy storage projects in several states, said that the company envisions a time in the near future when energy storage could account for at least 10 or 20 percent of America’s electric generating capacity.

Costs for the lithium-ion batteries used in energy storage projects have fallen by half in the past five years, already making them competitive with the cost of natural gas power plants today, he said.

“We have systems available today that are proving to be cost effective,” Zahurancik said. “We’re already starting to see batteries replace fossil fuel power plants.”

          Panino e Listino: DEAD NASDAQ WALKING, ESTATE BOLLENTE (Giovedì 29 Giugno in edicola su Libero)   


email: paninoelistino@gmail.com Pubblicato da Buddy Fox 




Mi hanno detto che ho anticipato troppo, perchè sono ormai 2 mesi, da prima dell'elezioni di Macron che ripeto la mia visione al ribasso sulle borse. Ribasso, come correzione, intendo precisare per anticipare le critiche future.
SELL, l'ho scritto troppo presto? Ditelo a quelli che sono rimasti dentro la BOLLA Tecnologica del 2000, solo un anno dopo, non solo avrebbero preferito uscire molti mesi prima, ma addirittura non avrebbero voluto mai essere entrati. 
Il tempo è sì una variabile importante, ma anche il prezzo ha il suo peso. Succede sempre che quando entri al ribasso, basta una notizia, un piccolo rialzo per farti vacillare, il mondo è come prima, ma quando sei al ribasso sembra sempre che da un momento all'altro debba partire una nuova euforia e d'un botto Milano torna a 50.000.
"Mai dire ribasso" perchè il lettore ti perdona sempre una perdita quando è posizionato al rialzo e per un qualsiasi motivo la borsa crolla, ma mai, mai ti perdona se la perdita è perchè sei al ribasso e la borsa sale.
Su Panino e Listino in edicola oggi "Don't cry for me Argentina", la memoria del 2001 e la nuova vita con Macrì. Mi raccomando, prima di investire, una visita da Papa Francesco, può essere molto utile. E i "Matusalem Bond" i titoli di coda di questa grande e lunga BOLLA BOND.
Per finire, Nasdaq, ancora Nasdaq e Piazza Affari. Estate bollente?


LIBERO 15 Giugno 2017

La mattina del 10 Marzo 2000, l’indice Nasdaq toccò il livello di 5.132 punti per poi chiudere a 5.048, per molti fu un semplice ribasso, gli investitori di tutto il mondo erano sereni, pieni di fiducia per non dire euforici. Il mondo del risparmio era grato al Nasdaq per quanto aveva saputo regalargli, un sentimento granitico, resistente  anche alle prime picconate avvenute nei giorni successivi e che avevano portato l’indice a perdere il 35% in meno di due mesi. Una fiducia mantenuta a lungo, ogni tentativo di salita era motivo di speranza. Non avevano ancora capito che un mondo era finito, boom, la bolla era scoppiata, ma erano tutti sordi.

Pochi lo intuirono, in Italia Elserino Piol  e Francis Micheli, il venture capitalist sganciò in tempo Tiscali, la volpe di Piazza Affari piazzò E.Biscom e si comprò un veliero. Questi due geni oltre al talento avevano una cosa in più: l’esperienza, e la usarono nel miglior modo. L’avevano capito anche Blodget, Meeker e Quattrone, gli idoli di quell’epoca, non avevano l’età per l’esperienza, ma erano i direttori d’orchestra, servivano agli investitori carne guasta, facendola passare come di prima scelta.
La prima bolla è come la prima volta, non capisci nulla, non senti nulla, poi scoppia e  arriva la delusione e pensi che sia tutto marcio, brutto, inizi ad aver paura di ogni cosa. Il tempo poi passa e guarisce, molte volte cancella. Così si arriva a oggi, a prima di venerdì 9 Giugno, quando l’ode al Nasdaq era ripartita, un rialzo ininterrotto che invoglia a comprare senza chiedersi il perché. Finché arriva impietosa la correzione, maleducata, non avvisa mai per tempo. Ed ecco che il fantasma del 2000 si ripalesa. Bolla di nuovo? Se ti scotti con l’acqua calda, poi hai paura anche della fredda. Se può rassicurare, 17 anni fa seguendo il suo motto “non compro ciò che non conosco” Buffett rimase alla larga da quell’euforia, oggi le Apple invece le compra, e lo fa anche dopo un rialzo del 1.000%.
Lunedì 12 Giugno, mentre Amazon e Apple continuano a diversificare i loro affari, mentre Tesla si lancia nell’auto del futuro, una nuova asta di Bot in Italia viene assegnata a tasso negativo. Sicuri che la bolla sia in Silicon Valley?
PIAZZA AFFARI: obiettivo sempre 19.500. Se parte verso 22.000 non inseguirò, per me può andare. Io ti aspetto qua.
BE: attendo 0,80, senza patemi e senza fretta.
AMPLIFON: c’è chi insegue titoli che salgono anche del 400% tipo Safe Bag e poi si prende la randellata, e c’è chi come Tamburi che dopo aver pazientato qualche anno, ora che ha moltiplicato il capitale, vende e ringrazia. Quale modello operativo preferite?
NASDAQ:  fino a pochi giorni fa andare contro il Nasdaq era come scontrarsi con Ivan Drago, provavi lo short e facevi la fine di Apollo Creed. Ma venerdì da Goldman è arrivato il colpo alla Rocky. Ora il Nasdaq Ivan Drago è ferito ed ha paura.   Il volo del Nasdaq è entrato in una fase di grandi vuoti d’aria. Prepariamoci a un’Estate bollente.

Act three, though, twists things around to where a life can hang in the balance and we are shown something we have never seen before. This final, shocking act is known as “The Prestige.”

--- Mr. Cutter

The Prestige is a 2006 period film directed by Christopher Nolan, with a screenplay adapted from the 1995 World Fantasy Award-winning novel of the same name by Christopher Priest. The story follows Robert Angier( Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden(Christian Bale ), rival stage magicians in fin de siècle London. Obsessed with creating the best stage illusion, they engage in competitive battle of magic tricks with tragic results.

In the late 1800's in London,when magicians are idols and celebrities of the highest order, Alfred Borden and Robert Angier are two up-and-coming magicians who are close friends until a tragic event turns them into bitter rivals. Robert Angier is a superior showman while Albert Borden is not quite the showman but appears to be the better natural magician. When it comes to magic, appearances can be deceiving. Both men become famous performers on the London theatrical circuit and spend too much time trying to sabotage each others performances, at times to the point where extreme violence ensues. Borden eventually develops a fantastic illusion called "The Transported Man" where he disappears on one side of the stage and simultaneously reappears on the other side. Angier (later known as The Great Danton) drives himself insane trying to figure out "the prestige" of The Transporter Man and even develops his own version in which he uses his superior showmanship to make his show a success. But The Great Danton is not satisfied with his accomplishments and continues to pursue the secrets of Borden, even using his beautiful assistant Olivia (Scarlett Johansson) to seduce his rival. Angier's quest to upstage Borden takes a shocking turn when he meets Nikola Tesla. The scientist creates a device that ensures Angier will upstage Borden, but at what cost? Unfortunately for both men, their bitter rivalry takes them down a road that will only result in disaster and death.

Bale and Jackman do a good job of men aiming at each other’s throats while trying to maintain a normal family life. They were are all excellent in their roles. Jackman is given the opportunity to show both the good side and dark side of his character. The same goes for Bale. The result is a pair of very complex characters up on the screen that are neither hero nor villain.

And then when you reach the big twist, you are astonished. This is the greatest part of the film. And what happens after the big twist? Another big twist. Then another. Then when you think that you’ve got it all figured out – that you can predict how this magician of a filmmaker is pulling off his tricks – you are hit with another final blow more powerful than anything that could have preceded it.

The real magic of The Prestige is executed by its director. Nolan uses all the tools available to him here. He realizes the strongest potential of his actors -- the mask-like charms of Jackman, the bordering-on-psycho mania of Bale, and the wise and confident dignity of Michael Caine as the magicians' mentor. He combines technique, theme, and the subject of the world of magic to create a dazzling movie about very disreputable things. It's a direct, bleak story, but in Nolan's magician-like hands, The Prestige ends up being quite a show. So grab this chance and experience the magic of this movie available in DVD format.

          Comment on Running on 100 percent renewable energy … or not by Marijan Pollak   
As we say in my country "ignorance is not knowing better way to do things".. My WindSolars would be 100% "Green" because they would be built using Self-Renevable Energy that they themselves would produce.. They would work 24/365 thanks to Thermal Energy storage properly insulated so loses would be negligbe if any.. My new Wind turbines would produce 144 TIMES more electricity from same Wind that now just ONE standard unit use. Since all energy produced by Wind or Hydro can be turned to heat it can be added to Thermal storage of new CSP Solar, to be regenerated when required. Therefore 100% renewable, 100% of time. Land would be saved at least 80% in built in Greenhouse and WindSolar can be built in new Skyscrapers, giving one more use to land, and perhaps also multiply it by Vertical Farming.

          Tesla shares have hit a speed bump (TSLA)   

Elon MuskScreenshot/Tesla

After rallying almost 80% since the beginning of the year — and looking like $400 might be in sight — Tesla shares have retreated over the past week to $360 territory after a top-out at $384.

What's pushing the stock down is no more clear than what pushed it up, besides the usual cocktail of greed and fear, shaken by Tesla's now-legendary volatility.

The only meaningful datapoints on the immediate horizon are second-quarter earnings, due to arrive in about a month; second-quarter deliveries, which Tesla will report in a few days; and the launch of the Model 3 mass-market vehicle.

Earnings should be yet another substantial loss, as Tesla spends cash to launch the Model 3. Deliveries should be in-line with the company's loose guidance for about 50,000 in the first half of the year, although some Tesla watchers think sales could come in a bit light (under 25,000 vehicles) — ironically a good thing if Tesla is focusing on the Model 3 rollout.

The Model 3 is another story, as Tesla hasn't said much publicly about what the launch will entail we haven't seen any teaser images of the production vehicle that provide specific detail. It's possible that skepticism about how finished a vehicle Tesla will introduce next month is putting onward pressure on the stock.

On Friday, shares recovered slightly from their slide this week, up about 0.5% to $364 after a Thursday close at $361.

          Fast multimodal neuroimaging for tracking whole-brain dynamics, Jul 3   
Many aspects of cognition take place on a timescale of hundreds of milliseconds, and measuring neural activity in this frequency range is essential for neuroscience. However, current non-invasive neuroimaging methods are not able to precisely localize oscillatory neural activity above 0.2 Hz. We show that fast fMRI acquisition enables the direct detection of neural oscillations with frequencies of up to at least 0.75 Hz within single scan sessions. The amplitude of these oscillatory responses is an order of magnitude larger than predicted by canonical linear models, suggesting that the hemodynamic response can be surprisingly fast during ongoing neural activity. By integrating fast fMRI with simultaneous EEG at ultra high field (7 Tesla), we can detect local thalamic correlates of spontaneously varying cortical dynamics. Our preliminary results also demonstrate that this approach can identify new cortical and thalamic dynamic patterns that appear at the transition between wakefulness and sleep states. Our results identify new aspects of neural activity that can be measured through fast fMRI methods, and use this approach to track whole-brain dynamics across arousal states.
          Imaging cortical columns and cortical layers at 7 and 9.4 Tesla: From sensory mapping to cognitive applications, Jul 7   
Ultra-­high magnetic field (UHF) fMRI at 7 Tesla and higher enables measurement of human brain activity with sub-­millimeter spatial resolution allowing to differentiate brain activation at the mesoscopic level of cortical layers and columnar-­like feature clusters. Recent experiments show that it is possible to map known columnar organizations in specialised brain areas (e.g. V1-­V3, A1, hMT, STS/STG) when using UHF fMRI with optimized coils and MR pulse sequences. Furthermore, the separation of activity from upper, middle and lower cortical layer compartments provides the possibility to separate bottom-up from top-­down information flow. We will present several examples of this emerging new field of human “mesoscopic” neuroscience including the read out of the content of conscious perception when perceiving ambiguous moving stimuli and several top‐down effects during expectation, imagery and attention.
          The Ideology of Future World, Part 1   
Oh, EPCOT Center, where are you?!

It's not the first time this opinion has been voiced, and it surely won't be the last. It's been said so much by now that it's become a cliche... the 30-something EPCOT fan, pining away for the lost attractions of yesteryear. The Sci-Fi kid who grew up with NASA pennants and Star Trek episodes on tape may be one of the few types unaccomodated by theme parks, an area so often dominated by nostalgia and fantasy.

That may be part of the mystique,  but more than anything, EPCOT Center was the right product at the right time, the theme park about science and technology that opened during a pivotal era for science and technology. Home computers, video game systems, cable TV and VCRs became creature comforts used the world over, and special effects began their slow encroachment on the rest of movies. EPCOT Center was there, reflecting ourselves back at us, perhaps not flatteringly but basically correctly.

Recently I was reading through Fjellman's Vinyl Leaves and was struck by his coverage of Future World. Fjellman seemed rather enchanted by much of WDW, but in Future World, he came down hard on the corporate sponsors and their (rather naive) messages inside the attractions. And while it's true that a cultural critic, as Fjellman is, is always going to gravitate towards areas of greater thematic gravity simply because those areas actually have something to discuss, it's sort of remarkable from the 21st century to re-read his late 20th century concerns.

For example, in General Motors Transcenter, he sees the Bird and Robot Show as an effort to portray the computerized factory "workers" - then already replacing flesh and blood workers - as positive, helpful, unthreatening servants. Fjellman makes the connection to Michael Moore's then-recent documentary Roger & Me, depicting the economic devastation in and around Flint, Michigan, by GM's abandonment of the area. Well, Flint MI isn't any better off today than it was in 1990, and for basically the same reasons.

But in other cases he seems to be wide of the mark. In EPCOT Computer Central, people play computer games to humanize and put a friendly face on new, threatening technology, and Fjellman sees this as another effort to indoctrinate the public to their new mechanical masters. It's not Fjellman's fault that he didn't see the internet age and dot com bubble coming, but it's interesting in hindsight to see an area of human activity that de-corporatized as it developed, to the point that fighting for digital freedoms is a very real issue in Washington today, an issue that CommuniCore never hinted at.

Yet more than anything, it's truly strange today to read Fjellman going apoplectic over these attractions which today, if not universally beloved, are considered to be classics of the first degree, standard bearers to beat. Most of them were with us for less than the life span of many house pets, yet their legend was grown outsize, torpid. There are fans of Horizons who never saw it in person. And if these classics really weren't so idiotically vapid as they seemed in the 80s, perhaps they weren't all they're cooked up to be today, either. Ideologically, if not technologically, a lot of Future World was very often suspect.

So let's take a leisurely tour of Future World, taking a look at the message of those original shows, their new message (if relevant), original sponsor, and assessing whether these subjects are still relevant, and how the message of Future World could change. After all, a lot can change in thirty years!



Spaceship Earth, 1982
Original Sponsor: Bell Systems
Original Message: The evolution of communication technology will lead mankind into the future.
Current Sponsor: Siemens
Current Message: The evolution of communication technology has led mankind into the future, where you are also a cartoon.

Comments: Of all of the major corporate pavilions at Future World, this one has aged the most gracefully, which is good, because it's inside a structure so complex it can't really be easily removed. Of all of the visions of the future presented at EPCOT Center, Spaceship Earth's came the nearest to actually coming true - even the families of Horizons were doing things like playing dorky transparent organs instead of staring at glowing screens the way everybody actually is today. This also means it's the easiest to update, which means it's gotten the most updates. But that itself is the problem.

The original version of the show, scripted with an assist from Ray Bradbury, had a tone that was dry and vaguely spooky, like many of the original Future World shows. The Walter Cronkite narration and insertion of "Tomorrow's Child" into the finale had the effect of softening the attraction somewhat, and to me the Cronkite version is still the champion for "best overall" version - it had show scenes almost all the way through, with animatronics and compelling visuals from bottom to top to bottom. The 1994 Irons version was simultaneously an improvement and a downgrade - it had an even better script, a stronger message, and an excellent soundtrack. The trouble came shortly before the "180 top" segment, where the sections dealing with an actual communications technology future, still relevant in the 90s, became an extended advertisement for AT&T's new videophone technology, which looked then like the sort of tech gadget that Screech would mock on Saved By The Bell. Worse still, the entire segment was accomplished with static figures in cheap sets which had no resemblance to the rest of the attraction, and were rendered in UV-sensitive paint which didn't always do a good job hiding the fact that most of what you were looking at was just black curtains.

True to tradition, the 2007 reboot both improved things and made them worse. Screens were added to each car and an Innoventions-style quiz game with animated cartoon became the new finale. A new score by Bruce Broughton doesn't have remotely the same impact as the 1994 score, and Judy Dench's narration is the first truly eye-rolling one for this attraction, although the contrast was heightened by coming immediately after Irons' excellent script and delivery. However, the refresh did manage to extend the good segment of the ride - complete with scenery and animatronics - a good 30 feet nearer to the 180 top, resulting in the strongest version of the front half of the ride since before the 1994 edition.

What Needs to Change: The focus of the next refurbishment needs to be extending the quality scenery at least part of the way down the descent portion of the ride. The original version included astronauts floating in space on the 180 top repairing satellites, then as the cars descended they coasted through the center of a space station where a woman directed the operation from a control tower. It was one of the most impressive things in EPCOT. The same effect can be achieved today, even with limited function figures, and Spaceship Earth really deserves that ending, more than it deserves a grid of dots or watching the news on TV. Once through that section, the original Spaceship Earth show converted to the "Tomorrow's Child" segment, right about where the 1994 show was giving you the famous "lightning in space". The final diorama and tunnel has never been attractive, and WDI really needs to commit to putting something cool here.

I suggest bringing back the 1994 score and dialing back on the patronizing quality of the narration for the next version. The in-car screens were prescient for 2007, and debuted mere months after the first iPhones went on sale, but are embarrassingly behind the curve now, and really need to show something worthwhile or be removed.

Status: Still truckin'
New Sponsor Suggestion: As the iconic visual of EPCOT Center, I think it's time for Disney to commit to this one themselves. The trouble with the sponsorship game is that sponsors are always going to want to tell a specific narrative, and inside an already constructed attraction like Spaceship Earth, it isn't an easy thing to do. As the last remaining Future World Classic, this one should be owned and funded entirely by Disney, and it needs to speak for the rest of Future World in a way that the other pavilions no longer do.

Earth Station, 1982
Original Sponsor: --
Original Message: --
Current Sponsor: Siemens, "Project Tomorrow"
Current Message: Thanks for riding!
Comments: I still think this is the most logical spot in Future World for Guest Relations. The original Earth Station included a detail everybody remembers: the computerized reservation central, where you could talk to another person through a video screen! Literally everything about Earth Station, and the WorldKey system, has been replaced by an average smartphone device, and that's fine. But I still think Guest Relations should be moved back to here. It doesn't need to be anything flashy, but this spot was designed for it.

Status: A less technologically advanced Face Time



CommuniCore Futurecom, 1982
Original Sponsor: AT&T
Original Message: A hands-on look at the complexities of relaying information across the country, including the Age of Information diorama, the Information Fountain, Network Control game, Packet Phraser, and Microchip Maze.
Current Sponsor: --
Current Message: --
Comments: the true "post show" of Spaceship Earth was one of Communicore's nicest areas, using human-scaled activities and warm, inviting earth tones. On a basic level, kinetic pieces of art like the Information Fountain and Age of Information were fun to look at even if you didn't bother to stick around to figure out what it was all about. Exhibits like this were Future World's equivalent of Magic Kingdom's charming architectural facades, and the lack of them is one reason why Future World currently feels so sterile. If Future World is going to draw people back in to its monumental architecture, it needs socialization hubs like this - with appealing colors, natural light, and actual fun things to look at that don't mean much.

Status: Not quite as relevant, but still cool.

Universe of Energy, 1982
Original Sponsor: Exxon
Original Message: Fossil fuels, despite the extraordinary difficulty of obtaining them, are still the best energy source available, although if something better comes along, Exxon intends to own that, too.
Current Sponsor: --
Current Message: We're running out of fossil fuels, but don't worry, we'll think of something.
Comments: The most ideologically weighted of the original Future World shows, let's be honest - Universe of Energy was never especially progressive or prescient. Much of the original show was devoted to explaining, at excruciating length, where fossil fuels come from and how they are harvested. Don't worry, there's also dinosaurs! The 1996 reboot of the show, Ellen's Energy Crisis, put a warm face on the proceedings but pretty much wrote off alternate energy sources as impractical. In some ways, the 1982 show was more honest - we are running out of options with fossil fuels, and the search for fossil fuels has led us, politically, to some pretty ugly places.

What Needs To Change: Universe of Energy is a problem. The basic design of the pavilion is based on a pitch created by production designer John DeCuir and bought by Disney in the 1970s. Technologically, the "moving theater" is probably the most outdated thing at Walt Disney World, running on an absurd jury rigged system that is as crude as it feels. But the pavilion is also an opportunity to create a real classic; after all, those dinosaurs are still pretty awesome.

If the moving theater concept is going to be retained, then at the bare minimum Disney needs to invest in new theater cars and a trackless ride system. With the ability to quickly and precisely move into place instead of waiting for the equivalent of two Commodore 2s to move you into place, it should be possible to present a dramatically reduced version of the original Universe of Energy show - complete with dorky theme songs - in about 15 minutes. The question is, should we really be doing that, even if the film in Theater 2 is entirely new? Because it's still then a show ideologically dominated by a fossil fuels company.

I think running an omnimover through the building is a better choice. This would allow you to retain the dinos and build new scenes around the experience, as well as present a different point of view, perhaps showing how far we've come since 1982 - and how much farther we have to go. Omnimovers are popular and efficient, and a family-friendly, not too long experience could do well today sitting next to two major thrill rides. To do that we need a sponsor with a real vision for a world without fossil fuels.

Status: Still Relevant
New Sponsor Suggestion: Tesla

CommuniCore Energy Exchange, 1982
Original Sponsor: Exxon
Original Message: Fossil Fuels are still the best!
Current Sponsor: --
Current Message: --
Comments: This was the place where, freed from the confines of a moving theater, Exxon really hit home their point, offering guests opportunities to turn bicycles and wheels to light up lightbulbs, before offering the news that we would have to keep turning that crank for hours to generate one dollar of electricity! It wasn't terribly exciting and was usually empty, but it was memorable and did a lot better job doing the ideological heavy lifting than Universe of Energy ever has. If you've got to make a point, that's how to do it.

Status: Effective but Questionable



CommuniCore Epcot Computer Central, 1982
Original Sponsor: Sperry Univac
Original Message: Computers are not scary at all, and in fact even you can use them.
Current Sponsor: --
Current Message: --
Comments: A wide-ranging overview of the various ways computers can improve and automate our lives, Sperry-Univac's keystone exhibit - The Astuter Computer Revue - closed shortly and reopened as the blandly cute Backstage Magic within just two years, but that was not the only problem. The exhibit overall focused heavily on the institutional and business aspects of computers - after all, this was years before even simple graphical interfaces became common, and nearly a decade and a half before Windows 95. As a result, a lot of Computer Central felt impersonal and utilitarian, where we could see computers doing things like calculating census data. Other computer abilities highlighted by Sperry included things that almost nobody does on a computer these days, like assembling an American flag. The most memorable thing in Computer Central, SMRT-1, was less of a demonstration of computer technology as a traditional theme park interaction exhibit dressed up as a robot.

One component amidst this sea of number crunching and automation did ring true as to where we were going with computers: the Rollercoaster game. Anybody who played this goofy thing in the 80s may not immediately think it as their introduction to CAD, but that is what it was. Computer Central wasn't much interested in the home and entertainment sectors of computing - the sectors which would explode in about a decade - and there wasn't even a single mention of "e-mail" anywhere in it, but I'd wager that between WorldKey, Rollercoaster, and the other games here, more Americans touched a computer inside EPCOT Center than anywhere else in the country during the 80s.

Comments: Instead of breaking up each attraction here, I'm going to treat the entire pavilion as a piece, which is frankly really difficult. Of all of the Future World pavilions, Wonders of Life presented the most diffuse message, and had the shortest life span. Most guests simply treated the individual attractions as Magic Kingdom-style experiences, void of ideological ramifications, which was good, because they largely were.

Throughout, the visual theme of an indoor fun fair gave way to militaristic themes in the major attractions. A rather naked imitation of the 1987 film Innerspace, Body Wars was a ride-thru B movie complete with bad acting and sickening special effects. The charming Cranium Command was, in its day, one of the funniest, smartest things at WDW, but it had no more of a message than the Tiki Room - not freaking out seemed to be its main suggestion for dealing with daily life. Elsewhere, Wonders of Life offered a film about human conception and birth, and sold late 80s idea of healthy foods, like frozen yogurt and waffles.

It's probably better to think of Wonders of Life as a reflection of Michael Eisner's ideas about theme parks than any kind of coherent addition to the Future World lexicon. Here garish, Michael Graves-ian colors combine in a circus atmosphere complete with a spinning overhead mobile. Faceless, industrial institutions like the Miniaturized Exploration Technologies and the eponymous Cranium Command invite tourists to do highly unlikely things. Celebrities appear for no apparent reason - hey kids, is that Charles Grodin? What whimsy!

More than anything, Wonders of Life can be paired with The Living Seas as pavilion ideas that Disney created back in the 70s that never really found a great reason to exist. As an outgrowth of some truly strange ideas created for a Life & Health pavilion by Rolly Crump, Wonders of Life was more of its time and less interesting. It was also never quite able to justify how a discourse on healthy eating and exercise wasn't folded into the message of The Land, across the park.

Status: Goofy Gestalt
New Sponsor Suggestion: It's probably better to allow Wonders of Life to exist in its native habitat - the 1990s. This spot should be used as an expansion pad.

Comments: Basically a laserdisc assisted version of a travel agent, minus the ability the actually book a flight, TravelPort is hardly remembered aspect of Communicore, and for mostly good reasons, because it neither predicted nor rode any particular futuristic wave. It did, however, have a big red sphere, and those will always be cool.

Horizons, 1983
Original Sponsor: General Electric
Original Message: If We Can Dream It, We Can Do It
Current Sponsor: --
Current Message: --
Comments: This is the big one, and it's the big one for good reason. While the other Future World pavilions were marked by corporate elisions or made ideological hash of their messages, Horizons made the case that the rest of Future World couldn't - that the future was going to be really goddamned awesome, and you were going to float upside down. That message doesn't date, even if all of the other trappings of the show did. And as an index of the rest of Future World, showing us undersea colonies (The Living Seas), cool space stations (Spaceship Earth), and desert cultivation (The Land), Horizons was enormously effective and Future World will never be complete without it.

Here's why Horizons is still relevant today, and it's the reason why every kid who ever rode it, and most adults, have never forgotten it, regardless of how simplified and schematic is was. Kids deserve to be shown a version of the future that isn't a totalitarian society, or an ecological disaster, or a zombie apocalypse, and our society is not and never has been forthcoming with these options. Horizons delivered and made dimensional, tactile, a version of the future which was friendly and reassuring, and people, especially at a young age, deserve to know that positive change is possible too, even if it's wrapped up in a package which is somewhat of a fantasy. Because if you can't be cheerfully optimistic at Disney World, then what the hell is left?

Now, let's be clear: there will never again be an attraction as elaborate as Horizons. Disney was really the only place that ever built things like this, and they're not in that business anymore. Split into four segments - Looking Back at Tomorrow, the two omnisphere theaters, Tomorrow's Windows and Choose Your Own Future - Horizons was a staggering multi sensory epic. But when you get down to it, the key sections were Looking Back at Tomorrow and Tomorrow's Windows, and both of them were built on the fountain of stuff that Disney still does well - dimensional figures and scenery. These segments also have basically solid designs. What wasn't crucial in Horizons was not the specific designs of the clothes, accessories, even music or narration, all of which were pedestrian. What made Horizons work was the astonishing way the omnimovers creeps through and around those pod-like sets, sliding past space stations, and down below undersea cities. This can still be replicated, and given a new look with modern modern conceptions of shapes, colors, clothes, music, and dialogue - basically the same things which keep Spaceship Earth plugging along.

Therefore, even if the full version in all its glory can never be replicated, there is simply no excuse for Disney not to rebuild at least part of Horizons as their prestige family friendly omnimover attraction at Epcot. It's Epcot's Pirates of the Caribbean, and it really needs to be there, if only in part. I suggest putting up a new, condensed version where Wonders of Life is now.

Status: Integral, badly needed.
New Sponsor Suggestion: Horizons was the most Disney thing in Future World, so this is another one that Disney needs to really build and market as their own. Amongst the Disney faithful, a new version of Horizons would be one of the marketing and public relations success stories of the decade, and truly send the message that Disney was committing to Epcot again.

CommuniCore Electronic Forum, 1982
Original Sponsor: --
Original Message: The upcoming computer age will open new doors of communication, maybe
Current Sponsor: --
Current Message: --
Comments: Of anything in EPCOT, Electronic Forum probably got nearest to where we would be in three decades. Televisions in the lobby, ostensibly intended to be used to access news casts from around the world, were most often used by EPCOT visitors to dial up college football games. As Richard Beard memorably puts it in his iconic Walt Disney's EPCOT Center, the Future choice Theater "offer(s) a rare opportunity to get a number of things off your chest and into a computer". The resulting demographic breakdowns displayed onscreen, and indeed the entire concept of electronically voicing opinions, was probably not what visitors carried away from this experience. Since the demographic breakdowns of 170 people were self-reported, Future Choice Theater was likely the first experience many people had with that most modern of internet activities, misrepresenting yourself.

In later years, the emphasis on current social issues gave way to the more benign "Person of the Century Poll", of which the winner was usually Michael Jackson. Because the attractions in Electronic Forum required the cheerful compliance of audiences to remain on message, here already was evidence of the true directions technology would take - subverted for amusement, redirected to watch college football on Sundays, turned into popular culture popularity contests. Anybody who thinks human mischief in the age of the internet is anything but an inevitabile could take a long look at Electronic Forum for a more persuasive alternate view.

World of Motion, 1982
Original Sponsor: General Motors
Original Message: Private automobiles are more efficient, more useful, and less dangerous than any form of transportation yet invented.
Current Sponsor: General Motors, Test Track
Current Message: Thanks to rigorous testing, private automobiles are safer than ever before.
Comments: Designed at a time when the American automobile industry was imploding due to overseas competition and embroiled in expensive and publicity damaging scandals concerning chemical dumping and labor, World of Motion had next to nothing to say about the future, and spent most of its time concentrating on the past. That past, as designed by Marc Davis, was supremely goofy and fantastical, as various hazards and inconveniences - irate mules, sea serpents, flying carpets, airborne pigs, and traffic cops - impede the frivoulsly liberated human population's desire to go for a drive in the country. This wasn't so much a history of the automobile as a history of getting from place to place, ending in a vision of the future where paved multi-lane highways run every which way into the horizon - a future where no invention will ever replace the family sedan. Exxon, over at the Universe of Energy, would likely have approved.

What Needs to Change: The current version of Test Track, although less of my kind of ride than World of Motion was, is one of the few Future World pavilions to really feel like it has a place in Epcot. It has a corporate sponsor, a unified aesthetic, and is pushing an agenda, and doing a pretty good job doing it. Although I really miss all those those Marc Davis animatronics and huge sets - remember how massive the oak tree in the bicycling scene was? - Test Track is still on message. In a world where EPCOT Center is re-concieved from the ground up for 2016 audiences, an entire pavilion touting the personal car would not, I feel, make the cut, but for the popular and effective ride, this one should stay for now.

Status: Unkillable

TransCenter, 1982
Original Sponsor: General Motors
Original Message: Cars and combustion engines are great!
Current Sponsor: General Motors
Current Message: Buy some stuff, even a car!
Comments: Much like Energy Exchange over at CommuniCore, TransCenter does the ideological heavy lifting for General Motors. While Exxon let you turn a crank and see how insignificant your personal body power was compared to the merest blip of electricity, GM took a comic approach. The Water Engine took place in a darkened room where screens appeared behind the lowering cylinders of a combustion engine. While a laconic cowboy - the absolute embodiment of 80s American patriarchy - insists that he'll stick with the combustion engine till something better comes along, various crazy cartoon characters demonstrate their engines until a Mad Scientist-type turns on a "Water Engine" that explodes and wrecks comic havoc. Funny, charmingly animated, Water Engine still played directly into the prejudices of Americans and General Motors.

Steven Fjellman saw much that was ominous in The Bird and Robot Show, and given that his book was written in the immediate aftermath of Roger and Me, it's not too surprising. It's perhaps better, and more accurate, to see Bird and Robot as an outgrowth of traditional Disney theater shows like Country Bear Jamboree and Tiki Room, similar to the way that Kitchen Kabaret sought to add some old school Disney charm to to sleek, corporate EPCOT programme. WED basically treated the robotic assembly arm as the most advanced audio-animatronic possible, and paired it with a model of one of their earliest animated figures - a Tiki Room bird - to show off how fluidly it could move, lift objects, perform tricks, etc. Three decades on, the automation of labor has only increased, and is rapidly cresting the horizon where social change is going to need to happen to keep pace with the displaced population of laborers. Much like over at Expo Robotics, the robots are now the whole show.


The cleverest idea in TransCenter, and the one that really stuck, was the notion to require riders to exit through an automobile show room. Everyone remembers the Aero 2000, a machine designed to reduce wind resistance, but the Aero was a fantasy car and acted as the lure to keep people walking through the exhibit. Further along came more practical, potentially salable items such as the GM Lean Machine and, most importantly, next year's GM models.

What Needs to Change: The 1998 reboot into Test Track retained a few of the post-show elements. There was a simulator type attraction called Time Chasers, and a new gift shop which absorbed the back part of the automobile show room. The cars were instead moved forward into the exhibit area; guests still walk past the areas where Bird and Robot and Water Engine played. Given the fact that Test Track has a height restriction where World of Motion had none, I find it impossible to believe that films and exhibits in this are wouldn't be more popular with waiting families than the original menu of attractions were. In this case it's a matter of relocating or condensing the shop to make room for some informational activities that supplement the on-ride messages of safety and reliability.

Status: More memorable than you'd expect from a car company.

review:
There are so many great rivalries in history. Ahab vs. the Whale, Edison vs. Tesla, Hamilton vs. Burr, Coke vs. Pepsi, boxers vs. briefs... Wolfe vs. Mailer... Goodreads vs. Everyone [spoilers removed].

Of course, there would be Zombies vs. Unicorns.

Rightfully so. Back in my pre pubescent(and I will say it, 'chaste') days, unicorns rocked. My little pony, The Last Unicorn, those velvet paintings at the flea markets with sparkly depictions (this was pre-Lisa Frank). It was a special time. I won't wince when I use the word 'pure'. I would later call it 'guilded-cage' syndrome, but what have you.

My Johnnie Rotten/Charles Bukowski/Joy Division days didn't give much thought to either Unicorns or Zombies. Wasn't my thing... Zombies ate brains, they weren't depressed little beings..... and I haven't really considered the rivalry so pressing in my little bubble.

Then you bring in the YA authors. The newer crop who give us these buffet king like offerings (Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd, 21 Proms) --ooh, look, they have some Scott Westerfield... should I mix that with some Barry Lyga or will that give me an upset stomach? John Green? No way! Double that! and I will definitely be having some Libba Bray for dessert!---

And now I have to choose between zombies and unicorns. Sigh.

Zombies won. Out of the 12 stories, I liked more of the zombie ones than the unicorns... but this isn't saying that the unicorns didn't make me laugh or cry or anything... I guess that as I've aged, I've discovered I have more in common with zombies.

Which presents a whole bunch more of discussion at therapy next week.

My favorites: 'Love will tear us apart' by Alaya Dawn -you had me at Joy Division, but kept me at Squeeze.

'Children of the Revolution' by Maureen Johnson because the idea of Brangelina have zombie children just fucking rocked.

'Cold Hands' by Cassandra Clare because I love a good doomed but not love story. And the prince sounded really hot.

'Inocula' by Scott Westerfield because aren't we all zombies inside, just a little?

'Prom Night' by Libba Bray because I love Libba Bray and I love hope when there isn't a future for it.

I will gives props to 'Princess PrettyPants' and 'The Third Virgin' for not making me hate unicorns and bringing back just a little bit of that worship.

In all, please keep these anthologies a-coming. I love you guys. Don't quit me.

The 911 GT2 RS has made its debut at Goodwood, and it's time for Porsche to let its hair down

The previous GT2 RS came with a Ludicrous Mode even before a Tesla came with a Ludicrous Mode.

Thing is, the 997-series GT2 RS of 2010 wasn’t labelled that way, and the mode just began from the moment you twisted the key and stayed on until you switched it off again.

Hardcore Porsche 911 GT2 RS makes debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

With the 690bhp promised by this one, you might well be forgiven for thinking the same thing again. Especially given that 690bhp is a whopping amount of power to generate from only a 3.8-litre engine. Any engine that has attempted this specific output before has been a bit, well, ‘boosty’.

And so it might be again. Except that Porsche doesn’t seem to do ludicrous these days. Everything it does is wrapped up in a complete, rounded package and is honed to guarantee drivability alongside absurd pace. But there’s space for Porsche to let its hair down. Let’s hope it takes it.


          The Important Lesson From Record 560 Miles In A Tesla Model S P100D   

A new "hypermiling" record for production electric vehicles has been set by a pair from Belgium, using a Tesla Model S 100D. The duo in question, Steven Peeters and Joeri Cools, managed to squeeze 560 miles (901 kilometers) out of the Tesla Model S 100D in question, by traveling at an average of 24 miles per hour (39 km/h) for right around 24 hours. Before we go further about the short-term news, there's a very important lesson to be learned and shared (again) regarding this record and how it relates to the practicality of EV life today

          Tesla shares have hit a speed bump (TSLA)   

Elon MuskScreenshot/Tesla

After rallying almost 80% since the beginning of the year — and looking like $400 might be in sight — Tesla shares have retreated over the past week to $360 territory after a top-out at $384.

What's pushing the stock down is no more clear than what pushed it up, besides the usual cocktail of greed and fear, shaken by Tesla's now-legendary volatility.

The only meaningful datapoints on the immediate horizon are second-quarter earnings, due to arrive in about a month; second-quarter deliveries, which Tesla will report in a few days; and the launch of the Model 3 mass-market vehicle.

Earnings should be yet another substantial loss, as Tesla spends cash to launch the Model 3. Deliveries should be in-line with the company's loose guidance for about 50,000 in the first half of the year, although some Tesla watchers think sales could come in a bit light (under 25,000 vehicles) — ironically a good thing if Tesla is focusing on the Model 3 rollout.

The Model 3 is another story, as Tesla hasn't said much publicly about what the launch will entail we haven't seen any teaser images of the production vehicle that provide specific detail. It's possible that skepticism about how finished a vehicle Tesla will introduce next month is putting onward pressure on
