Since 2012 when the City of Denver enacted the Urban Camping Ban, the forced removal of people from tents and other temporary shelters — commonly known as “sweeps” — have become the norm. Even as houseless neighbors and advocates protest these displacements, the Hancock administration continues to conduct them. But one recent sweep of an encampment outside the Four Winds American Indian Council in Baker challenged the status quo in a different way. Today on the show, City Cast Denver host Bree Davies talks with Four Winds American Indian Council chair Mateo Parsons about why this sweep is different and where things stand with this part of the indigenous community and the city. To hear from one of the residents of the encampment outside Four Winds, here's a link to a video of a man talking about a confrontation he had with DPD at the camp: https://www.facebook.com/fourwindsamericanindiancouncil/videos/?ref=page_internal Here's the full response we got from the mayor's office: General about the cleanup: We remain focused on connecting those living in any unsanctioned encampment with services, shelter and housing that will help them exit homelessness as quickly as possible. Unsanctioned encampments pose a health and safety risk to those living in them and those living around them. The Mayor has been clear that they cannot persist when better alternatives remain available. About the meeting with Four Winds folks: Mayor Hancock and city staff meet with representatives from the Four Winds American Indian Council and the encampment that was located outside their building. The meeting was productive and alternative options were discussed for those who were in the encampment, including housing, shelter and access to safe outdoor spaces. As well, several of the individuals in the encampment were connected with housing already through outreach efforts prior to the encampment cleanup. Additional context: For further context on those who were connected to real solutions as opposed to the accusations of those who want them to stay in these conditions: there were five people from that encampment who were placed in Safe Outdoor Spaces and 10 who were provided two-week motel vouchers to help them connect with longer term services and resources. The week before the actual cleanup, the Homeless Outreach Team contacted a woman living in the encampment outside Four Winds who had three small children (including a toddler) living in the tent with her. Nobody at Four Winds or within the camp had offered her assistance or bothered to provide resources for the children. DPD was able to get her and her children out of the encampment and connected with supportive resources. And here's the full response we got from the Department of Housing Stability (HOST): Prior to all encampment cleanups, street outreach teams are deployed on multiple dates leading up to the cleanup to connect individuals with resources, services, shelter and housing. Outreach prior to the Four Winds cleanup resulted in the following: One family (mother plus three children) placed into family shelter and connected with services Five individuals placed into Safe Outdoor Space managed campsites 10 individuals placed, via motel vouchers, into motels for 14 days with follow-up visits provided by street outreach teams One person referred for permanent supportive housing with another successfully rehoused Three individuals completed case management steps necessary in order to be prioritized for future housing referral In addition, individuals were provided with food, vaccinations, and medical/behavioral care HOST continues to work with individuals who were residing in this encampment. HOST has partnered with several Native American-led organizations, as well as with the Colorado Village Collaborative, on visioning efforts related to future Safe Outdoor Space sites.
According to the American Association for Cancer Research, 80-90% of the administered dose of the cancer medication 5-fluorouracil of 5FU is degraded by the enzyme dihydropyridine dehydrogenase or DPD for short. (https://clincancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/5/8/2006). According to the Institute of Safe Medication Practices (www.ismp.org/resources/screening-dihydropyrimidine-dehydrogenase-dpd-deficiency-fluorouracil-patients-why-not) the incidence of DPD deficiency is low like 1-7% of the population but the consequences can be unfortunately fatal for those few.

Authorities in Delta County reported finding guns, drugs, ammo and cash during Friday searches of homes in Delta homes and Austin. 45 year old Lonny Len Hilbers of Austin was detained on suspicion of drug distribution or manufacturing. He was also detained for unlawful possession of drugs, and possession of a weapon by a previous offender. Hilbers cooperated with authorities and was arrested without incident. The DCSO, DPD, 7th Judicial District Drug Task Force, Drug Enforcement Agency, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation conducted a months-long investigation. Eventually they secured the search warrants and served them on Friday. The agents seized more than 2 ounces of methamphetamine. They also seized hundreds of fentanyl pills, possible psychedelic mushrooms, cash, and drug paraphernalia. They also found evidence involving other criminal activity. The investigation remains active. And for now, not all details are public. Coordination between agency partners was crucial to hitting all three places at once. Ultimately Hilbers was jailed without bail on Friday afternoon. Check in at montrosepress.com for more information on this story. Visit Nabur.montrosepress.com Before we go we'd like to take a moment to remember Dallas Allan Wright. Dallas passed away peacefully on June 28th at UC Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs. He was surrounded by his wife and daughter holding his hand after a courageous battle with cancer. Dallas was born in Spirit Lake, Idaho. He was the third of five children and grew up in Hayden Lake, Idaho. During his sophomore year of high school, he moved to Alaska, where he graduated. Dallas and Tammy met in 1984 in Anchorage, Alaska, and started their life together. They lived in Joseph, Oregon and he worked at the local sawmill as a superintendent until it was closed down. Then, they moved to Montrose, Colorado, where they became lifelong residents. He worked as a plant superintendent at Montrose Forest Products for 27 years. His entire life was all about wood.

Dr. Mitul Gandhi, medical oncologist-hematologist at Virginia Cancer Specialists of the US Oncology Network, highlights therapeutic advances in multiple myeloma featured at the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting. Transcript: ASCO Daily News: Welcome to the ASCO Daily News Podcast. I'm Geraldine Carroll, a reporter for the ASCO Daily News. My guest today is Dr. Mitul Gandhi, a medical oncologist specializing in hematologic malignancies at Virginia Cancer Specialists, which is part of the US Oncology Network. Dr. Gandhi will discuss therapeutic advances in multiple myeloma featured at the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting. He reports no conflicts of interest relating to our discussion today, and full disclosures relating to all episodes of the podcast are available on our transcripts at asco.org/podcasts. Dr. Gandhi, welcome to the ASCO Daily News podcast. Dr. Mitul Gandhi: Thank you for having me. ASCO Daily News: Let's first look at the OPTIMUM MUKnine trial. It's Abstract 8001. And it reported high overall response rates in patients with ultra high-risk multiple myeloma with Dara-CVRd induction therapy. What are your takeaways from this study, Dr. Gandhi? Dr. Mitul Gandhi: Sure. So, the OPTIMUM study was conducted by the UK group, and it's noteworthy for several reasons. The way they had constructed the trial, they designed and developed a platform primarily to enrich for a predefined subset of very high-risk individuals, whether it was through a set of genetic assessment or with central gene expression profiling. And the way the trial was conducted, while patients were waiting to ascertain the results of the gene expression profiling (GEP) they could receive two cycles of bridging therapy. Once those results were furnished or they met the cytogenetic risk criteria, patients who subsequently consented to the intervention protocol which was a dose intensified regimen, five drug regimen, incorporating daratumumab, cyclophosphamide, bortezomib, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone. So, patients would receive induction for up to six cycles, and that would include the two cycles of potential bridging therapy as GEP was being evaluated on an every 21 day basis. And then this was followed by a modified conditioning regimen consisting of high-dose melphalan at 200 milligrams per meter squared along with weekly bortezomib which was continued even following autologous stem cell rescue, really until count recovery. Subsequently, patients received an additional six cycles of daratumumab, bortezomib, revlimid, or lenalidomide followed by 12 cycles of daratumumab and rituximab until progression. This was a complex study design with an intensified induction consolidation and maintenance phase, but it did yield a impressively high OR rate, or overall response rate, at 94% with very good partial response or greater seen in 77% after assessment following autologous transplantation, including 46% complete response (CR). And of those with CR, they had identified 63% achieving MRD negativity as well. And I think the authors should be commended for one, enriching a high-risk subset of patients both on conventional cytogenetics and/or GDP, and then two, utilizing the most active agents that we currently have to elicit high responses and then to consolidate on those following transplant. I think some of the take homes from the study are the ability to demonstrate feasibility of central genomic risk stratification related to more precisely identify and select high-risk patients as this is kind of an area of unmet need of where to augment therapy appropriately. I think it's still a question whether or not this is the exact dose intensified regimen that's going to elicit the best long-term outcomes in these highest risk patients and whether or not the conventional surrogates for a long-term progression-free survival (PFS) benefits such as MRD really apply to this as there is some controversy regarding that. Nonetheless, I think this offers a kind of a reproducible platform that can be emulated to identify the highest risk patients. You can do that prospectively, and then to selectively incorporate the most active agents and potentially the next generation of novel agents, including immunomodulators, cellular therapy, bi-specific antibodies earlier in the treatment course, and really try to elicit the deepest initial response and hopefully see that translate into longer term durable control. So, this was a complex study design that was impressively executed, and again with an ability to enrich for the highest risk subsets. ASCO Daily News: Excellent. Thanks for sharing your takeaways from the OPTIMUM trial. Well let's focus on the phase II CARTITUDE-2 study. That's Abstract 8013. This study reported that deep and early responses were yielded with a single infusion of cilta-cel in patients who had received one to three prior lines of therapy for multiple myeloma. What are your thoughts on this trial? Dr. Mitul Gandhi: So, Dr. Usmani presented the CARTITUDE-2 update on behalf of his co-collaborators. And the listeners probably are aware of some of the preliminary data that was presented at ASH as well in 2020, but this is a phase I/II protocol. Currently the phase II data are being presented with a proprietary CAR T platform which has two BCMA single domain antibodies on the CAR T construct along with a co-stimulator domain. And as kind of summarized in the title, the single dose was infused. So, amongst 113 patients who were initially recruited, 97 ultimately were treated with some fallout attributed to progressive disease. Like many of the other CAR T studies, this was a uniformly high-risk and heavily pretreated population. Median age was 61. High-risk cytogenetics were in 23% of patients. And there was about 20% of patients who had harbored plasma cytomas as well. Response rates were impressively high at almost 98%, and 67% obtaining a stringent complete response (CR). Much like the other CAR T experience, response continued to deepen over time. And encouragingly, duration of response was actually not reached time of presentation. Kind of amplifying the depth of response, of the patients assessable for MRD, 93% had achieved an MRD negative state at a sensitivity of 10 to the minus fifth cells, leading to a 12-month PFS of 77% and an OS of 89%. So, these are all welcome numbers and response data, again, in a heavily pretreated population who have been exposed to what we believe all the more active agents in the disease. In parallel with kind of response, with particularly with CAR T is the toxicity data. And encouragingly, while CRS, or cytokine release syndrome, which is typified in CAR T therapy was seen in about 95% of patients, only 4% had grade 3 to 4 CRS. So, on the whole, quite manageable. Median time to onset was 7 days with duration of 4 days and resolved with appropriate medical therapy, including tocilizumab. They did report one patient who had grade 5 CRS with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) with the remainder, I was summarizing kind of the low level of grade 3, 4 experience. There was additionally neurotoxicity and 21%, with 10% having grade 3 or higher. Again, resolved with supportive care measures. So, in totality this builds on the CAR T experience with high response rates, deep response, rates including achievement of stringent CR and high rates of MRD negativity with only a single dose of CAR T cells infused, again amplifying the efficacy of this platform on a heavily pretreated population and potentially allowing for extended treatment-free intervals as well or options for retreating in people who don't achieve MRD with a manageable toxicity profile at experienced centers. Certainly there's still work that's going to be done to better delineate the extent of CRS and how to appropriately treat that along with the neurotoxicity, but along with several other abstracts presented at this meeting and meetings prior, builds on the CAR T experience, knowledge rapidly coming to the forefront in myeloma therapy. ASCO Daily News: Great. So, some good developments for previously treated patients. Well, now I'd like to focus on newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Let's look at the CARDAMON trial, Abstract 8000, and the FORTE trial, Abstract 8002. These studies explored novel therapies that are emerging for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. So in their presentations, these trial investigators seem to question the value of standard of care autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). So do you think these new data call into question the advantages of the up front ASCT approach in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma? Dr. Mitul Gandhi: That's a great question. And as providers in the myeloma community know, there's still an ongoing debate whether or not to ubiquitously apply a high dose melphalan conditioning and stem cell rescue across the spectrum of all patients with myeloma who are transplant eligible or reserving it for certain patients or not. Some of this is borne out of saving unnecessarily aggressive therapy, who would otherwise achieve an excellent response of induction. Along with some concern for secondary genotoxic effects imparted by the melphalan itself and perhaps propagating more biologically aggressive subclones. And to that end, these two abstracts explored whether or not transplant-free approaches would be feasible. So, the CARDAMON study enrolled 281 patients where all patients received kyprolis, cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone for four cycles, and of those patients achieving at least a partial response (PR), they were subsequently randomly assigned to continuous KCd or autologous stem cell transplant. And what the authors concluded, KCd induction followed by KCd maintenance was not inferior to autologous stem cell transplant with PFS at 2 years measured at 70% versus 76%, and that difference meeting the criteria that was prespecified in terms of their confidence interval for noninferiority. So, on the surface you could argue based on the results that were presented that there was equivalence. But a few caveats that are important to bring up, the first was that follow-up was short. It was only two years, and so it's very plausible that with longer follow up, the noninferiority that was seen may not be borne out with extended follow up. The other point the author's note was that MRD negativity was higher in the autologous stem cell group at 53% compared to 35.8% of the non-transplant group. And various studies have reported this to be a reasonable surrogate for long-term PFS, not always. And so again highlights the fact that with longer follow up, we may see a separation of the curves. Their subset analyses did not demonstrate any obvious areas, rather a subset of patients that would have derived preferential benefit, although the numbers were quite small. So, while an initial conclusion may be that there was a relative equivalence for a transplant-free approach, I'd argue that it's probably still a bit premature to make that conclusion and noninferiority may not be identical with longer follow up. And additionally, this probably is an induction regimen that is not as commonly employed in the U.S. But it does again help to the body of literature regarding this question of transplant for all versus not, although there may be hopefully more discriminatory power to see where it would be beneficial. The FORTE study presented by Dr. Gay and her colleagues was a bit larger at 464 patients and slightly different. Patients were randomly assigned to one of three arms, carfilzomib plus cyclophosphamide plus dexamethasone for four cycles induction followed by autologous stem cell rescue, carfilzomib, lenalidomide, dexamethasone induction for four cell cycles followed by autologous stem cell rescue, or carfilzomib, lenalidomide, dexamethasone without autologous stem cell for 12 cycles. So, those were the three arms, and then there was a second randomization to lenalidomide versus lenalidomide plus carfilzomib maintenance. Patients were prespecified in terms of their cohorts of high-risk, standard risk, or the so-called double hit which was people, patients rather, harboring two high-risk cytogenetic features. And so what the authors concluded that across the board, the arm containing carfilzomib, lenalidomide, dexamethasone with autologous stem cell rescue demonstrated superior PFS compared to all of the other, rather, the other two arms. And similarly intensification of maintenance incorporating kyprolis plus revlimid resulted in superior 3 year PFS compared to revlimid alone in 90% versus 73%. So what do we take away from this? Well, it's not a conventional induction approach in the U.S., with RVd still predominantly being used, particularly after the endurance data was presented at last year's ASCO showing equivalence of a bortezomib induction strategy versus carfilzomib strategy. It does support and lend credence to the use of high dose melphalan autologous stem cell rescue as patients who are in this arm seem to enjoy a more longer and durable progression-free survival across all subsets, including standard risk, high-risk, and the double hit strategy. So there wasn't any particular subset that could be identified that would have performed equally well with KRd alone without autologous stem cell rescue. Putting these two abstracts together, I would still argue that there remains a very important role for our high dose melphalan and autologous stem cell rescue currently an induction, rather following induction, in appropriately selected patients. And while we may not have identified patients on preselected criteria based on their cytogenetic risk, it's conceivable that we might identify response based criteria, whether it's MRD or otherwise, to perhaps see who may be able to abstain from transplantation. And there are several protocols that are actively accruing, some that have been preliminarily presented, and some that will be presented in subsequent meetings that might lend evidence to this. But for now based on the data sets that were presented at this year's meeting at ASCO, there still seems to be support for use of high dose melphalan and autologous stem cell rescue. ASCO Daily News: Right. Well staying with the issue of transplantation, for over a decade investigators have been exploring the curative ability of alloHCT in select patients with high-risk multiple myeloma. Fast forward to 2021 and the phase II double blind, placebo controlled, blood and marrow transplant clinical trials network 1302 trial. That's Abstract 7003. This study found that when performed with a reduced intensity conditioning regimen of bortezomib, fludarabine, and melphalan, alloHCT was safe in patients with high-risk multiple myeloma. What are your thoughts on this, and do you anticipate further research on the role of alloHCT in patients with multiple myeloma and high-risk features? Dr. Mitul Gandhi: So, this is an interesting abstract presented by Dr. Nishihori and her colleagues specifically looking at the role of ixazomib maintenance following a reduced intensity conditioning regimen of fludarabine, melphalan, and bortezomib in patients with high-risk myeloma. So this study was a phase II study enrolling patients under the age of 70 with high-risk myeloma defined by cytogenetics, or presence of plasma cell leukemia, or relapse within 24 months of an autologous stem cell transplant, which has been identified as a prognostic factor independent of baseline risk of poor outcomes, with the goal of administering the reduced intensity conditioning followed by HLA matched donor unmanipulated graft with methotrexate and tacrolimus GVHD prophylaxis, and starting at day 60, randomization ixazomib versus placebo maintenance. It should be noted that the goal initially was to enroll 110 patients, but ultimately only 57 patients were accrued over the course of 4 years from 2015 to 2018, 52 ultimately receiving an allogeneic HCT and 43 proceeding to maintenance. And so this in and of itself highlights the challenges of running an alginate transplant trial in myeloma mainly because sick patients may be by the point where allogeneic transplant is being entertained or inability to achieve sufficient disease control in order to pursue the transplant. But with respect to the study itself, they reported a PFS and overall survival (OS) outcome at 24 months, of 52% and 85% respectively, with transplant-related mortality at a respectable 11%. So in context of the small studies that had previously been reported in this space of allo SCT and myeloma, this was improved treatment-related mortality related to the procedure itself. With respect to the question at hand regarding the role of ixazomib maintenance, interestingly they showed no difference in PFS, with ixazomib versus placebo at 55% and 59% and OS at 95% and 87%. In terms of the toxicity, it was not trivial. Grade 3 to 4 acute GVHD at day 100 was 9.5% in the ixazomib arm, 0% in the placebo arm. And chronic GVHD was 69% versus 64%. So, where do we take all of this data in context? I think there is a signal of lower transplant-related mortality compared to historical controls, and so it probably speaks to the improved ability to identify patients and also get them through transplant with this modified conditioning. The follow up, however, was abbreviated, and so there may be increased relapse over time as well. In terms of where does this fit in the armamentarium of therapy with refractory myeloma, I think that's still to be determined. And perhaps it's going to be occupying more of a niche role given the blossoming repertoire of highly efficacious immune-based agents, whether it's modified cellular therapy with CAR T a upcoming NK cell products that are being explored, and of course by specifically antibodies that have been robustly presented at this meeting demonstrating impressive responses. So, it's very conceivable that patients who were previously would be entertained for allogeneic SCT will now be in are treated with this kind of repertoire of novel immune agents. And so it may become a more of a niche role in patients who have exhausted all conventional or investigational approaches, but it does suggest that with this modified reduced intensity conditioning, treatment-related mortality can be lowered. With respect to the question at hand, it does not appear as though maintenance ixazomib helps these patients. And so observation alone following transplant versus an alternative maintenance strategy would be indicated. ASCO Daily News: OK. Well I'd like to ask you about the Apollo trial. That's Abstract 8046. This study looked at health-related quality of life of previously treated patients with multiple myeloma on a regimen of pomalidomide and dexamethasone plus subcutaneous daratumumab. Any surprises here, Dr. Gandhi? Dr. Mitul Gandhi: So, the Apollo study is a phase III trial primarily evaluating the efficacy of pomalidomide plus dexamethasone versus pomalidomide dexamethasone plus the incorporation of subcutaneous daratumumab in patients with myeloma who had received one prior line of therapy. And primary outcomes data had already been presented with improved rates of disease control with incorporation of daratumumab. With respect to this abstract, Dr. Terpos presented quality of life and patient-reported outcomes that was collected in parallel with the intervention arm of this study, and so they utilized the EORTC 30 item questionnaire to assess quality of life and subjective data from patients. And what they found was in the patients who had been on the DPD arm, or the daratumumab arm, there was a greater reduction in pain and no real augmentation or introduction of increased adverse events related to the additional agent. Moreover, there was no decline in physical or emotional functioning with DPD, but there was worsening decline in those elements compared to baseline for patients receiving pomalidomide and dexamethasone alone. There were higher rates of improvement with respect to control of disease symptoms, physical functioning, emotional functioning on the DPD arm. So, what does this tell us? Well in general, I think we've seen a plethora of agents that have improved outcomes with our patients with myeloma who are now living for years on therapy, increasingly and often even into a second decade. And so gaging the impact of therapy on quality of life, subjective sense of well-being is critical as these patients are going to be on therapy for quite a while. And so independent of serologic and laboratory response, we certainly want the interventions to improve functional capacity. And this data would suggest that you can achieve that in parallel with achieving better and deeper responses, which intuitively makes some sense, and they are often congruous. Involving the incorporation of an additional agent didn't worsen the sense of adverse events, but in fact improved the general sense of well-being. So this adds to the body of work of daratumumab on a MM dexamethasone backbone parting benefit without toxicity and also lending credence to the notion that by improving myeloma parameters, we're going to be in parallel improving quality of life. And so with the advent of all the other agents and novel compounds that are being developed after the acute toxicity period, we'd also expect to see improvement in quality of life as well. And so I think this was an important contributor to telling us this. ASCO Daily News: Excellent. Well thank you so much, Dr. Gandhi. I really appreciate your time today. Before we wrap up, any final thoughts from you on advances in multiple myeloma? There's certainly some really impactful work being done in the field. Dr. Mitul Gandhi: Yeah. I think I would encourage all the listeners to review the abstracts presented, particularly the oral abstracts as they get into some of the granularity on detail regarding the individual CAR T and bispecific antibody products, and very nicely demonstrate the durable responses that are being achieved in heavily pre-treated patients. Obviously kind of the next sort of hurdle in the field is to democratize these agents and make sure they're readily available for all patients. And there's a lot of work being done to ensure that management of the acute toxicity can be managed more broadly. So I think I'd pay particular attention to the oral abstract sessions which really demonstrate the novel agents that are being investigated. ASCO Daily News: Dr. Gandhi, thanks again for being on the podcast today to highlight some great new therapies in multiple myeloma. Dr. Mitul Gandhi: Thank you for having me.

Episode 34: 2024 Graduate Degree Requirement MythsIN THIS EPISODEYou are likely aware that in 2024, a graduate degree will be required to become a dietitian. If you didn't already know, well, now you do! This change has been a long time coming, and is something that many people have been getting ready for. However, there are still some misconceptions about what it actually means, who will be impacted by the change, and how it's going to be implemented.Right now, we're less than 3 years away from this change taking place. Right now, dietetics students are in a mixed basket of whether or not they need to get a graduate degree. For you, it likely depends on where you are in your dietetics education path, and, more importantly, what steps you have ahead of you, to determine if or how the 2024 degree change will come into play.Here are questions covered in this episode:1. Will all dietetics have to get a graduate degree after January 1, 2024?2. Does everyone who will take the exam in 2024 have to get a graduate degree?3. Do you need a graduate degree to even get an internship in 2024?4. Does your graduate degree have to be in nutrition or dietetics?YOUR ACTION STEP Check your timelines and learn about your options. How much time do you have left in your DPD program? When might you apply to internships? How close will you be to the 2024 requirement? Will it be a good idea for you to consider an internship that offers a graduate degree? Or is there another route you've got in mind to get a graduate degree before your internship? These are questions that only you can answer. Everyone's route to RD will be different. In the show notes, I included a link to the ACEND program database, where you can filter out specific types of programs, and whether or not they offer a graduate degree. Determine your program needs, and do your research to see what's available.With this Insider insight, your application is sure to stand out!----------SHOW NOTESEpisode 34 Show NotesNew to Dietetics?

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark talk with The Detroit Chief of Police James Craig. Today’s show rundown: · Defund the police – who wants this, the community doesn’t actually want this · Stopping conversation, no more debating or talking to eachother · Good administrators not standing up to support good cops. More talk of Portland “summer of love” Police Officers were not allowed to conduct a proper investigation. · NYC – the Mayor is not supportive of his Police Department. Crime is up in all major cities. Magical in Detroit – Mayor stood up with Chief in support of Police Officer doing RIGHT. · Portland - Federal troops brought in to defend buildings – city caved in Fed Troops go home – moving out agents would restore order – the exact opposite happened. · Chief OWNS that DPD isn’t perfect, but they are transparent, he is all for admitting mistakes, calling something criminal if it is. Expectation that Cops should know difference between right and wrong · Technology is totally helping to catch criminals – facial recognition – · No one wants to talk about the victims when talking about defunding police or prisons · Reasonable people want to sit down and negotiate, not just eliminate police and prisons…people want to destroy cities 1 by 1, destroy the constitution, destroy the country. · The people deserve the Truth – media today / social media has so much power – they can set the tone, the truth, etc More about Chief James Craig: Chief James Craig came to Detroit after serving in the same post in the Cincinnati Police Department for two years. Previously, he spent two years as chief of the Portland Police Department in Maine. A native Detroiter, Chief Craig started his police career here in the City in 1977.

Episode 36: This week we're straight talking cannabis induced psychosis. We talk to Eimear about her experience. She tells us how she started smoking recreationally but then the stress of being unemployed due to covid and being intimidated living in a loyalist part of Belfast lead to her smoking more, becoming paranoid and then developing obsessive behaviour over the Black Lives Matter movement. We also discuss her experience of being hospitalised and generational trauma in Northern Ireland. Also on this week's show, Peter installs TikTok and has a wonky horn and Allan is impressed with EZ Living's customer service, not so impressed with DPD delivery drivers.

Tesco Christmas Q3 Results Join Andrew Grant and Darren A. Smith in the twelfth episode of Grocery Guru: Tesco Christmas Q3 Results – 80% of sales in large stores are through Clubcard. You Can Read the Full Tesco Christmas Results Episode Transcript Below: Darren A. Smith: Welcome to week 12 with The Grocery Group. It is Andrew Grant. Andrew, hello. How are you doing? Andrew Grant: Darren, good to see you again. How are you? Darren A. Smith: Hey, I’m all right. I’m all right. Lockdown, blah, vaccination, blah. We’re not going to talk about any of that, are we? Andrew Grant: No. No. It’s still the post-Christmas results season, and I thought today … I think it was yesterday, Tesco’s Christmas results statement was released. All very good stuff. Probably exactly what you would have expected. 8% like-for-like growth. People piling into Finest Christmas products. Lots and lots of online orders. So, I think the stuff we talked about last week in regard to Morrisons and Sainsbury’s. So yeah, a very, very good festive season for Tesco, but- Darren A. Smith: You’re talking about the Q3 statement for Christmas, aren’t you, the results for Tesco Group? Andrew Grant: That’s it. Yeah. Darren A. Smith: All right. All right. Andrew Grant: Inside that statement, not particularly hidden, but towards the end of that statement was a fascinating fact. They talked about the … And it’s very rare; actually, retailers disclose their loyalty information because it’s pretty sensitive stuff. So quite surprised that Ken Murphy actually said that in large stores, 80% of their sales at Christmas were Clubcard sales linked to people swiping their Clubcard at the checkout. That’s phenomenal. Darren A. Smith: That is high. So 8 in 10 pounds that are spent in Tesco is by someone who has a Clubcard, who’s swiped. Andrew Grant: In their larger stores, which you can understand. Because obviously in the Expresses, they’re much more transitory. Darren A. Smith: Yes. Andrew Grant: People dining in for a sandwich or a bottle of water are less likely either to have a Clubcard or to swipe it. But in their bigger stores, which is obviously the vast bulk of their volume, to have 8 out of 10 customers loyal, if you like. Loyal Clubcard shoppers. And what do you think’s driven that? I don’t think it was just the Christmas effect. I think it was something else. Darren A. Smith: What’s driven that? Andrew Grant: I don’t know if you’re a Tesco shopper if you’re a regular Tesco shopper. You should have noticed. Darren A. Smith: We’re more online, but then it still happens there. So I think because I’ve had a look at the Q3 statements. I knew what you were going to talk about. I think you’re going to say it’s promotions. Andrew Grant: Yeah. I think they’d been incredibly clever. I mean, most retailers with their loyalty promotions, they’re sort of second-best. They’re sort of add-ons and throw-ins. “Oh, use your loyalty card and get a minor promotion.” What Tesco, I think, have done very, very cleverly is taken their mainstream, high-hitting promotions and made them Clubcard-only. I mean, there are some fantastic Clubcard-only offers out there. And if you haven’t got a Clubcard, you’re wandering around a Tesco thinking, “I’m missing out on some fantastic deals here.” So probably, again, data they won’t share. They probably recruited a whole army of new Clubcard customers since they’ve started those promotions. Darren A. Smith: Well, I read the Q3 statement because I knew you were going to ask about it, and one of the things I read was that the … Let’s have a look. Clubcard penetration has gone up 10 points to over 80%, which ties in with what you said, and there are 2 million more active users. Wow. Andrew Grant: Ah, I missed that bit. I should have read a bit more closely. Right. So another- Darren A. Smith: I mean, that’s truly amazing. Andrew Grant: Absolutely. I mean, and I guess the two important points out of that for our dear listeners and viewers here is those Clubcard promotions, if you want to promote with Tesco going forward, then the biggest and beefiest promotions are going to be those Clubcard ones. If you’re not all over Clubcard loyalty data, if you’re not buying it of Dunnhumby, you’re going to have another arm sort of tied behind your back when it comes to trading with Tesco. So suppliers are going to be encouraged, I guess, to spend more and more on shopper data. Darren A. Smith: Yeah, and understand it, and learn from it, and evaluate. Does the buy two, get third free work? I mean, my experience of working with a lot of clients and a lot of suppliers over the last 10 years is, they don’t all have … Actually, I’m going to go as far. I’ll say most don’t have a return on investment from the amount they spend on promotions. They don’t say, “I spend £1, I got back £1.25.” Now, this is a whole new level of complexity, which is going to make it even harder but absolutely essential. Andrew Grant: Yeah. Absolutely. Secondly, with we said that 80% figure, which is phenomenal, Tesco are now literally almost owning their shoppers. There is the old industry adage that Tesco with its Clubcard knows better than your GP when you’re going to die. Yeah, because no. They know your postcode, they know your lifestyle, they know exactly what your diet is. Darren A. Smith: Yes. Yes. Andrew Grant: I’m sure we all go to the doctors and don’t actually quite tell them how much we exactly eat. Eat and drink, and particularly how much we drink. Tesco knows exactly how much you drink when you put those seven bottles of cheap red plunk in your basket every week. They see it. Darren A. Smith: Well, it’s very true, because you get the GP questionnaire. How many units of alcohol? You think, “Is a pint just one unit?” Only one. Andrew Grant: No. Darren A. Smith: I’m going to share a couple of other facts that amaze me in here. You mentioned the like-for-like growth of Tesco, 8%. Booker with 15%, which I thought was damn pretty good. Andrew Grant: Well, considering restaurants and hospitality are shut, that is pretty good. Darren A. Smith: Yeah. So, that one amazed me. And then just a couple of other stats. Over Christmas, 7 million orders, 400 million items. Wow. And Tesco are looking after, supporting 786,000 vulnerable shoppers. I mean, some big numbers there. Some really big numbers. Andrew Grant: No, I think as we’ve said before, the supermarkets that are clear winners out of this nasty virus crisis we’ve had, they’ve been doing the right thing. Was it Morrisons announced yesterday, they’re going to be the first supermarket to pay £10 an hour? Darren A. Smith: Oh, are they? I didn’t read that. Andrew Grant: Yeah. Darren A. Smith: Oh, okay, I was going to just say something else. They pay £10 an hour. Yeah. Okay. Andrew Grant: I’m going to be applying, Darren. So, it could be the last one of these. But yeah, they’re firing on all cylinders. Just about all the supermarkets firing on all cylinders at the moment. But also, I think, tend to do the right thing as well. Darren A. Smith: Certainly seems that way. I’ve got one more stat before we wrap up. The other one I saw was that we’ve got +80% increase in online sales, which equated to another billion pounds worth of online sales over the Q3, which I think was 19 weeks at Tesco. A billion pounds worth of online sales additional. Andrew Grant: Well, I think we said at the very, very first one of these, where I trapped you into working out what UFC was, yeah. Probably their biggest challenge now is, how do they cope with that probably unstoppable growth of online? Are there going to be enough vans to go on the roads to deliver this stuff? Where I live, constantly all you see is white vans delivering Amazon, DPD, food, you name it. That growth is phenomenal, and whether they can keep up with it, and manage to pick it, and make money doing it. Because as we’ve said before, the grocers have to some extent been lucky for the last 60 years. They’ve persuaded us to be our own pickers and deliverers, and we’re now turning our backs on that. Darren A. Smith: They certainly have. So I think where that leads me to is the new battleground maybe moves away from pricing to data, to insight. Understanding our shoppers, but not just regurgitating the Nielsen, the Kantar, the IRI data. Actually turn it into something that says, “There’s £7 million worth of opportunity in the category if we do these three things. One on promotion, one on decision hierarchy, and one on availability.” Fantastic. That’s got to be the new battleground. Andrew Grant: Yeah. Price is always going to be there, and as a supplier, these retailers are going to knock seven bells out of you on price. Of course they will, because they’re still operating on tiny, tiny margins. But yeah, if you can use insight to drive profitable volume, even if you’re making very, very small margins yourself doing it, then that’s the way to grow and survive. Darren A. Smith: Okay. All right. Well, thank you, Andrew. We will see you next week for week 13, and let’s what happens in the world of grocery. Andrew Grant: Lucky 13. Darren A. Smith: Lucky 13. You take care. Andrew Grant: Okay. Take care. Bye-bye. For further tips and information, you can take a look at our Ultimate Guide to Category Management and our Category Management YouTube Channel.

Episode Summary: Today’s guest takes us way back to 1919 when his company was started by his grandfather just after the Great War. He walks us through the many innovative ideas and products that the LaMotte Company has had over that time, what sparked those ideas, and the amount of work that it took to make it all happen. We go through LaMotte’s pretty incredible list of accolades, including everything from blood kits, soil kits, phenol red, DPD, colorimeters, test strips, to their WaterLink® Spin Touch®. Richard LaMotte became involved in the family business in 1984—another LaMotte on the long list of 15 family members who have been actively involved so far—and today he serves as the V.P. of Sales and Marketing. Topics Discussed: 01:31 - How The LaMotte Company began 08:37 - Introducing the first portable pool test kits in the U.S. 10:58 - Steven Seagal using LaMotte test kits 15:56 - The original use for soil tests after the Dust Bowl 19:30 - Phenol red and why LaMotte began producing it 22:31 - Making the switch to DPD for drinking water and swimming pools 27:33 - Dealing with competitors such as Taylor Technologies 29:23 - The launch of DPD and phenol red tableting operation 33:16 - The launch of Insta-Test test strips in 1996 43:43 - The introduction of WaterLink and the WaterLink® Spin Touch® 54:12 - How LaMotte has handled the challenges of COVID-19 58:14 - How many LaMotte’s have worked for the LaMotte Company? 1:04:24 - LaMotte’s upcoming projects Sponsors: Pentair Connect with Guest: Website Facebook Instagram Twitter Youtube Connect with Pool Chasers: Website Instagram Facebook Facebook Group Twitter YouTube Patreon Key Quotes from Episode: Most people who managed pools before knew that you had a yellow, orange, or red color in phenol red, and that’s telling you that the pH is on the high side, causing problems such as clogging the pipes. The precision you can get in a professionally-done titration with a large burette is always going to be better on hardness and alkalinity than on color metric. The whole idea behind the WaterLink® Spin Touch® is to give people in the swimming pool industry a really fast way to test water because they have been asking for this forever. We have to find a way to make it reliable enough that they get the answers they need. When you’re working in a small company, anybody can make a difference.

Gestern kam er. Heute kommt er. Und auch morgen kommt der Weihnachtsmann. Und am Montag, Dienstag, Mittwoch - ja vielleicht sogar noch am Morgen des Heiligen Abend. Aber der Weihnachtsmann heißt schon seit langem DHL oder Hermes, UPS oder DPD, und immer öfter kommt er nicht "vom Himmel hoch", sondern von Amazon. Als Menschen bleiben die vielen flinken Weihnachtsmänner und -frauen meist namenlos für die, denen sie begegnen. Wichtig für ihre Arbeitgeber und für uns, ihre Kundschaft, ist nur eines: Dass sie liefern, bis die Bescherung kommt. Schnell und zuverlässig. Egal wie lang die Wunschliste ist. Wir als Konsumierende müssen uns stattdessen immer weniger bewegen; im boomenden Zeitalter des Online-Handels reicht ein Klick - und rennen müssen dann andere. Das bringt die Boten an den Rand ihrer Kräfte, den stationären Einzelhandel in Bedrängnis und unsere Innenstädte immer näher an die Verödung. Eine Entwicklung, die von der Corona-Pandemie exponentiell beschleunigt wurde, die vielen längst alternativlos erscheint und die vielleicht schon jetzt unumkehrbar ist.
Le greenwashing, grand mal de l'écologie ? Surtout quand il est subtil, voire sincère. Dans cet épisode, on commence par définir le greenwashing comme l'affichage de pratiques qui permettraient, d'après les déclarations d'une entreprise, de respecter les Accords de Paris (soit limiter le réchauffement climatique bien en dessous de 2°C) quand ce n'est en réalité pas le cas. Pas facile de respecter ces Accords quand on est une entreprise qui vise la croissance... Découvrez pourquoi le Greenwashing est partout autour de nous et comment le repérer assez simplement. Cet épisode s'appui sur le travail de Shifters. Merci à Clément Boyer pour son appui et accompagnement.

Suzanne bursts PJ's bubble at the beginning of this episode by chastising him about the mortgage stuff. PJ is very upset, he's finished all the books so now he's learning Spanish. He's freaked out though because he discovered that the Argentinians are making a TV show about him. Suzanne is freaked out by the new PJ, she's really pregnant and all of this just doesn't feel real to her. He's even teaching people English. Phil the DPD driver makes an appearance and we learn a bit about Dunnes and Penny's. We should be shopping local... but what about Pumpkins? They talk about Halloween, which will be difficult this year, but PJ is excited all the same, even if he doesn't understand what the kids are dressing up as. Suzanne wonders if you should be sexy or scary? She runs through some of the classic costumes of her youth. PJ invokes a friend of his to illustrate how to make a few quid go a long way. Which leads to a conversation about the value around razor blades. The Twilight Zone is back, PJ is watching a lot of horror films, Suzanne isn't convinced. Hocus Pocus aside. There's an email from a listener - look! It's Dubland! Get on it and enjoy the feckin' thing. Oh and go buy a t-shirt. (https://www.headstuff.org/shop/)
Suzanne gives PJ a present because he was texting her about the end of the world. He drowned his sorrows in all the whisky. Suzanne is cranky, fed up with people. Phil the DPD driver is the only good one left. PJ was involved in a car crash. We learn about teaspoon fulls of babies. And, related, we learn about vasectomies. PJ's pal gives the doctor the wrong sample. Men are a much simpler system. People are pass-remarkable about Suzanne's belly. There's talk about family and adoption and all sorts of stuff, sure look, it's Dubland, get it #inurears. Go buy a t-shirt and enjoy Dubland.

It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. AUDI E-TRON GT RS IS TAYCAN COPY/RIVAL "The Audi e-tron GT and e-tron GT RS will be revealed simultaneously next year to rival the Porsche Taycan Turbo. Audi has let more info slip about what to expect when that time does eventually arrive. First, there will be a two-pronged approach to the new e-tron GT’s reveal, with both ‘standard’ and e-tron GT RS models due to be shown off simultaneously in a similar fashion to Porsche’s Taycan Turbo and Turbo S. As has already been established, the two will share more than just a launch strategy with the Taycan, as underneath the two cars are very similar, sharing a fundamental J1 platform" writes evo.co.uk: "The car is being developed by Audi Sport, and an engineer told evo that, just like Porsche, it was ‘focusing on the reproducibility of performance’. Double wishbone suspension, electric torque vectoring, rear-wheel steering and a very low centre of gravity (especially for a four-seater), the GT should handle as well as the Porsche Taycan it’s based on. Another aspect Audi is keen to reinforce is substantial progress in combating range anxiety: the e-tron GT will have a range of nearly 250 miles from its 90kWh battery pack, the minimum range the firm believes is acceptable to its customers. Moreover, if you can find a charging point compatible with its 800v charging system it’s possible to reach 80 per cent charge (200 miles) in around 20 minutes. There will also be a wireless charging setup that works with an inductive pad installed in an owner’s garage." https://www.evo.co.uk/audi/21992/audi-e-tron-gt-rs-to-join-standard-gt-new-details-of-audis-flagship-ev-revealed GERMANY’S LARGEST FAST CHARGING HUB Today, fast charging company Fastned, Tesla and Seed & Greet open Ladepark Kreuz Hilden, Germany’s largest fast charging hub. On site there is a café, a large Tesla Supercharger station and a large Fastned charging station. At the Fastned station 8 cars can charge simultaneously with up to 300 kW, allowing electric cars to add up to 300 km of range in just 15 minutes. The Fastned station is powered by energy from the sun and wind, generated partly by the station’s large solar roof. Ladepark Kreuz Hilden is right off the intersection between the motorways A3 and A46, close to Düsseldorf, Germany. Fastned has 8 fast charging stalls and Tesla’s Supercharger station has 20 Supercharging stalls, bringing the current total for the hub to 28 stalls. The Fastned station in Kreuz Hilden can easily be expanded with more fast chargers, so that in the future 22 cars can charge simultaneously at the station. Fastned has 125 fast charging stations in the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and Belgium. https://fastnedcharging.com/hq/fastned-and-tesla-open-germanys-largest-fast-charging-hub/ NISSAN LEAFS ARE STILL THE MOST POPULAR USED ELECTRIC CAR "In 2020, the bargain-basement Leaf ($13,054 for the average used model) kept 28% of the US used EV market. Even in Tesla’s home state of California, the Leaf is outselling Tesla’s lineup." says Quartz: "Price is most people’s first consideration. The automotive research company iSeeCars analyzed over 54,000 used EV sales from 2019 to 2020. The Nissan Leaf remains the most popular used EV in 18 of the 25 states with the highest share of EV sales. That’s a function of both price and availability. Yet the volume of Tesla models now entering the market is likely to change the equation. It’s not much of an exaggeration to say America’s EV market belongs to Tesla. Nearly half of EVs sold in American since 2012 bear the Tesla logo." https://qz.com/1913991/used-nissan-leafs-are-selling-better-than-tesla/ MAZDA CONFIRMS MX-30 WILL GET A ROTARY ENGINE AS A RANGE EXTENDER "CEO Akira Marumoto confirmed that Mazda will use a rotary engine in the MX-30. Mazda plans to use the rotary as a range extender on the otherwise all-electric version of the MX-30. Marumoto said that it will begin testing with a small batch of prototypes next year. The goal is to have a production version of the MX-30 with a rotary engine on Japanese roads in 2022." says Autoblog: "Mazda says it’s going to be compact, have a high power output and be a smooth operator. Of course, those are all things we expect out of a rotary engine. An all-electric version of the MX-30 has been on sale in Europe for about a month now, too. There are still no official plans for Mazda to unleash the MX-30 on the American public, and even if it did, there’s no guarantee that we’d get one with a rotary range extender." https://www.autoblog.com/2020/10/08/mazda-mx-30-rotary-range-extender-confirmed/ TESLA GIGAFACTORY TEXAS TO INCLUDE BATTERY CELL PRODUCTION "Recent filings to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TECQ) have hinted at something quite interesting about Tesla’s plans for Gigafactory Texas. Based on the documents, Tesla will not only be producing electric vehicles in the massive complex; it will also be operating a “cell-manufacturing unit” that will build battery packs for the company’s industry-leading EVs. " according to Teslarati: "As noted in a report from the Austin Business Journal, the filing itself did not specify if Tesla will be manufacturing its battery cells at the original 2,100-acre Gigafactory Texas complex, or at the nearby 381-acre site that the company recently acquired. That said, the Journal’s sources have pointed to Tesla mining lithium at an Austin site, despite the activity not being mentioned in the TECQ filings. Gigafactory Texas is Tesla’s most ambitious vehicle production facility yet, with the factory being tasked to build key products like the Cybertruck and the Semi." https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-gigafcatory-texas-battery-cell-production-filings/ First Tesla Megapacks deployed at world’s largest battery project with PG&E "The first Tesla Megapacks have been deployed at what should become the world’s largest battery project with PG&E in California. In February, the project was officially approved and they started construction on the first phase of the project in July. Now PG&E confirmed that the first Megapacks have been deployed" says electrek: "The project will consists of 256 Tesla Megapack battery units.The energy capacity is going to be used to replace peaker plants and it is expected to save the electric utility over $100 million". https://electrek.co/2020/10/08/tesla-megapacks-worlds-largest-battery-project-pge/ 2 CONTRACTORS CHOSEN FOR TESLA'S $1.1B TEXAS FACTORY PROJECT "Accelerating its plans for a $1.1 billion Cybertruck plant, Tesla recently purchased an additional 381 acres in Austin, Texas, next to its 2,100-acre site to expand the manufacturing project’s footprint, according to the Austin American-Statesman." writes Construction Dive: "While no contractors have been officially announced for the project, Tesla procurement manager Jessica Munoz told the Community Impact Newspaper that two general contractors have been selected but not yet named. The firm also is looking for subcontractors for various jobs including site logistics, painting, flooring, fireproofing, interior finishing, plumbing, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and electrical projects. Tesla reportedly wants to open the plant by May 1, 2021 and is believed to be pursuing additional land purchases in Southeast Austin, according to the American-Statesman." https://www.constructiondive.com/news/2-contractors-chosen-for-teslas-11b-texas-factory-project/586398/ DPD LAUNCHES GREEN DELIVERY SERVICE ACROSS THE UK "The parcel delivery firm, DPD, has announced its plan to deliver to 25 towns and cities across the UK with zero and low-emission delivery means by 2025. The move is part of a Europe-wide drive by the DPD Group involving 225 urban areas in 20 countries and is based on a delivery model trialled in many cities, including London." https://fashionunited.uk/news/retail/dpd-launches-green-delivery-service-across-the-uk/2020100651253 SEAT BEGINS CONSTRUCTION ON BATTERY LAB IN SPAIN "SEAT has begun work on its future Test Center Energy (TCE), the new automotive battery lab that will be located at the SEAT plant in Martorell. With an investment of more than €7 million, the new center will develop and test various energy systems for electric and hybrid vehicles." says Green Car COngress: "The future building, the construction of which will be completed in April 2021, will have an area of around 1,500 square meters and include different test spaces for the evaluation of cell modules with lithium-ion technology, medium- and high-voltage batteries, as well as different chargers used in the entire range of electrified vehicles." https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/10/20201008-seat.html LIME ADDS WHEELS SHARED E-BIKES TO ITS APP "The next time you open Lime’s smartphone app, you may see a new type of vehicle that isn’t an electric scooter. The San Francisco-based company announced today that it is integrating Wheels, a shared electric bike startup, into its app so customers can rent an e-bike from Wheels as easily as they would a scooter from Lime." says The Verge: "Lime plans to add more shared mobility services to its app in the coming months as it seeks to become both a provider and platform for all two-wheeled electric transport. The “ultimate goal,” a spokesperson said, is to own “all light electric vehicle trips under 5 miles.” Wheels’ e-bikes will be available in Lime’s app starting this winter in four cities: Austin, Miami, Seattle, and Berlin. To rent a Wheels bike, Lime customers will scan the QR code on the handlebar, just as they would a scooter. Nearby vehicles will appear on the map along with pricing information automatically." https://www.theverge.com/2020/10/8/21506805/lime-wheels-app-integrate-scooter-bike-mobility You can listen to all 902 previous episodes of this this for free, where you get your podcasts from, plus the blog https://www.evnewsdaily.com/ – remember to subscribe, which means you don’t have to think about downloading the show each day, plus you get it first and free and automatically.

TESLA HIRING PRODUCTION ASSOCIATES FOR NEW PILOT BATTERY CELL LINE "With Tesla's Battery Day – which has been pushed back on numerous occasions – finally just around the corner, in addition to regular tidbits of information popping related to the automaker's "Roadrunner" project and "Project Palladium," the company is now officially hiring." says InsideEVs: "It comes as no surprise Tesla is hiring for its battery cell production line, which is reportedly opening soon, though Tesla has yet to confirm many specifics related to the battery manufacturing system or projects. We do know it will run the new battery line 24/7 with four shifts and some 100 workers. The automaker is now seeking 'Production Associates' and a 'Controls Engineering Manager.' These new employees will work on Tesla's pilot battery cell production line. On Tuesday, September 22, 2020, on the same day as Tesla's Annual Meeting of Stockholders, we should have many more details thanks to Tesla's Battery Day." https://insideevs.com/news/436867/tesla-hiring-pilot-battery-cell-production-line/ PANASONIC AIMS TO BOOST ENERGY DENSITY IN TESLA BATTERIES BY 20% "Panasonic Corp (6752.T) plans to boost the energy density of “2170” battery cells it supplies to Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) by 20% in five years and commercialize a cobalt-free version “in two to three years”, the head of its U.S. EV battery business said." according to a Reuters report: "This is the first time Panasonic, a leading cell provider for the world’s top electric vehicle (EV) maker Tesla, has outlined these targets, putting down a marker in a highly competitive sector to stay ahead of the game. Panasonic introduced the “2170” lithium-ion cells, with the nickel-cobalt-aluminium (NCA) cathode chemistry, for Tesla’s Model 3 in 2017. Researchers say it already has the highest energy density at above 700 watt-hour per litre. A cobalt-free version on the other hand would cut reliance on a costly and controversial component, which makes batteries stable but poses ethical issues given controversial labour conditions in top producer the Democratic Republic of Congo. From September, the firm will start converting lines at its factory in Nevada that it operates with Tesla as it prepares to further boost the energy density of the cells. CATL is supplying Tesla with low-cost lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries that contain no cobalt. " https://www.reuters.com/article/us-panasonic-tesla-exclusive/exclusive-panasonic-aims-to-boost-energy-density-in-tesla-batteries-by-20-executive-idUSKCN24V1GB GM WILL HELP EVGO TRIPLE ITS FAST CHARGER NETWORK IN THE US "General Motors is working with electric vehicle charging network EVgo to build more than 2,700 new fast chargers in cities and suburbs across the US over the next five years. That is more than triple the 800 fast chargers that EVgo currently has on its network, which is in 34 states and serves “more than 200,000 customers.”" says The Verge: "The buildout will help EVgo keep pace with other growing fast-charging networks. Tesla boasts 2,000 Supercharger stations (and 18,000 stalls) worldwide, and Volkswagen’s new Electrify America network is already up to 452 stations in the US. The new stations will be “located in highly visible areas and most will be able to charge at least four vehicles simultaneously,” according to a press release, and will be able to charge at rates between 100kW to 350kW. They won’t be exclusive to GM vehicles, and the first chargers that are part of this new buildout will be available in early 2021. The two companies are targeting around 40 different metropolitan markets." https://www.theverge.com/2020/7/31/21349614/general-motors-evgo-fast-charging-network-investment VOLTA TRUCKS & DPD BRING FULL-ELECTRIC LARGE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE PARCEL DELIVERIES TO LONDON’S ULTRA LOW EMISSION ZONE Volta Trucks, the Scandinavian start-up full-electric vehicle manufacturer, will soon start a pilot test of its forthcoming Volta Zero with DPD, the UK’s leading parcel delivery service. The Volta Zero will be tested by DPD within London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone in Q1-2021, supporting their micro-depot strategy in Westminster. Rob Fowler, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, added: As the world’s first purpose- built full-electric large commercial vehicle, the Volta Zero was specifically designed to deliver parcels and freight in inner city locations where today’s air quality and noise pollution challenges are at their worst. The Volta Zero’s full-electric, zero-emission operation is perfectly suited to DPD’s distribution requirements within London’s strict Ultra Low Emission Zone, delivering parcels to Central London’s customers in a clean and efficient way.” EV WEST WANTS TO BREAK AN ELECTRIC SPEED RECORD "The electric powertrain nerds at EV West are doing everything they can to propel Southern California hot rod culture into the future. Electric drivetrain swaps in old cars are their bread and butter, but in the process they’ve realized just how fast these things can be. With a custom tube-chassis, a slippery aerodynamic body, a hopped-up Tesla motor, and a rack of high-tech batteries, these mad scientists are aiming for an electric land speed record." reports Jalopnik: "We do know that the Electraliner will have 294 individual Panasonic battery cells for a total of 357 volts, which sounds like a lot. We know that the team plans to haul a small solar array out to the salt for charging purposes, keeping their three swappable racks of batteries topped up between runs. We know that the plan is to only use the top 50 percent of each battery pack, as power drops off precipitously after that. And we know that the whole kit and kaboodle will be cooled with 5 gallons of ice water poured in right before each run." https://jalopnik.com/ev-west-wants-to-break-the-electric-speed-record-at-bon-1844577249 You can listen to all 854 previous episodes of this this for free, where you get your podcasts from, plus the blog https://www.evnewsdaily.com/ – remember to subscribe, which means you don’t have to think about downloading the show each day, plus you get it first and free and automatically.
