Brandon Marshall, Chemours's North American marketing manager for thermal and specialized solutions, joins the podcast to discuss refrigerant changes that are coming and how we can prepare for those. Brandon started in the industry by going to a technical school when he was 14 and has been hard at work ever since, studying light commercial design and going to college in between. Local and global regulations have changed a lot over the years and continue to change as we continue maximizing our equipment's efficiency. California will soon start switching to low-GWP refrigerant on new equipment in 2025; even R-410A can't be used in new equipment. We will begin seeing the rise of A2L refrigerants and moving away from the A1 refrigerants that are more detrimental to the environment; we'll have to focus on safety as we begin working with more flammable refrigerants. As new refrigerants get off the ground, we can expect increased communication between manufacturers and dealers to prepare for the sale of equipment built for the new refrigerants. Although we can't confirm anything, Brandon has speculated that the EPA will soon follow in California's regulatory footsteps when it comes to new equipment and R-410A. It's a good idea to stay educated, subscribe to A2L newsletters, and follow HVAC trends in Europe to predict what might come next in North America.

Fett ist nicht schlecht: Außer Transfette, die tatsächlich einfach schlecht sind, haben alle Fette eine Funktion. Auf das Verhältnis kommt es an, vor allem wenn es um Entzündungen geht. Omega-3-Fettsäuren gehören zu den mehrfach ungesättigten Fettsäuren. Insbesondere die Omega-3-Fettsäuren EPA und DHA sind für unsere Gesundheit und Leistungsfähigkeit von hoher Bedeutung. Der Körper kann sie nicht selbst herstellen und ist daher darauf angewiesen, dass diese über die Nahrung aufgenommen werden. Mein Experte zu diesem Thema ist Dr. Jens Freese. Er berät und coached seit 20 Jahren Patienten mit chronischen Erkrankungen, Profisportler in Ernährungs-, Leistungs- und Regenerationsfragen und hat über 10.000 Trainer und Therapeuten an der Deutschen Trainer Akademie in den Fachgebieten Fitness, Ernährung, Diabetes, Stoffwechsel, Stressmanagement, Immunologie, Burnout und Motivation ausgebildet.

Once a year, I give myself the permission to just have whatever. I'm not perfect. I'm pretty good at my diet most days of the year, but once in a while, I'll go off the rails. Mexican food is my favorite, so on one of my birthdays, I had a burger with some cheese on it, french fries, and two milkshakes. And the next day, I had shoulder pain that I never had. Then I realized it's probably because of the combination of sugar and dairy. Usually if I eat crappy food, I don't feel the effects for a couple of weeks, but I felt that one the next day, which made me think that I can't out-supplement a bad diet. I take supplements for my overall health, and I recommend you do too. But how much can you really take, and more importantly how can you stay consistent especially if you're like me who would get really tired of taking a lot of pills?

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 24th January. 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. Welcome to a new EXECUTIVE PRODUCER TYLER VOSS WATCH RECORD-SETTING LUCID AIR DREAM EDITION 70-MPH RANGE TEST - We knew going into the range test that the Air would likely crush the 310-mile range test results we achieved on a 2021 Tesla Model 3 in our 70-mph range test, which was our range test leader until now. The only question that remained was by how much. - Lucid provided us with a production Lucid Air Dream Edition Range with the 19" Aero wheels which is the configuration that is EPA certified at 520 miles per charge. If you put the 21" wheels on this same vehicle, the EPA range rating drops to 481 miles - The temperature was 51° F (10.5° C) when we started the day, which isn't really ideal conditions for range testing. However, by the end of the day, the temperature had crept up to 69° F (20.5° C) - The consumption rate remained consistent and was on 4.3 mi per kWh for the vast majority of the drive, and only dropped down to 4.2 mi/kWh on occasion. - When the range test was over, we had used 117+ kWh of the Air's 118 kWh usable battery capacity, so we really ran it down to a completely drained battery. We drove the Air for six miles after the state of charge read zero, and about 3 more miles after the display said we had consumed 117 kWh on the trip. That leads us to believe we had less than .25 kWh left in the battery when we ended the test. - Lucid uses the 5-cycle test procedure to certify its vehicle's range with the EPA. Tesla, Audi, Polestar, and Rivian also use the 5-cycle test, while all other OEMs use the 2-cycle test. - Tesla vehicles, for instance, usually underperform their EPA range number by 10% to 13%. The Air actually did very well in this regard, falling only 4% short of its EPA range rating Original Source : https://insideevs.com/reviews/562511/lucid-air-range-test-record/ CYBERTRUCK PHOTOS LEAKED! - “The wiper lives flat across the bottom of the windscreen ? Or upright ? And Holy cow... it extends and retracts, potentially covering every inch of the glass.” Original Source : https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/cybertruck-photos-leaked-%F0%9F%93%B8.4660/ TESLA'S GROSS MARGIN IN FOCUS WITH Q4 EARNINGS - Tesla Inc's (NASDAQ:TSLA) crushing fourth-quarter delivery turns the focus on how well the company managed costs amid supply headwinds and whether the electric vehicle maker is on track to deliver 40% long-term gross margins when it reports quarterly earnings on Wednesday, according to Loup Ventures analyst Gene Munster. - Tesla delivered 28.8% automotive gross margins in the third quarter, compared with 25.8% in the second quarter ended June. - Tesla Chief Financial Officer Zach Kirkhorn had told investors on the third quarter post-earnings call that there's "an awakening" for electric vehicles and that the company does not have a demand issue but the ability to produce as many cars.

Original Source : https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Automobiles/Panasonic-to-start-producing-new-Tesla-batteries-in-2023 TESLA NOW RUNS THE MOST PRODUCTIVE AUTO FACTORY IN AMERICA - Last year Tesla's factory in Fremont, California, produced an average of 8,550 cars a week. That's more than Toyota Motor Corp.'s juggernaut in Georgetown, Kentucky (8,427 cars a week), BMW AG's Spartanburg hub in South Carolina (8,343) or Ford Motor Co.'s iconic truck plant in Dearborn, Michigan (5,564), according to a Bloomberg analysis of production data from more than 70 manufacturing facilities. - Tesla's Fremont factory is a scrappy site to behold. Originally built by General Motors Co. in the 1960s and jointly operated by GM and Toyota until after GM's 2009 bankruptcy, new additions have been kludged together to form an anthill of manufacturing. In what was once a rear parking lot, a pair of industrial tent structures provide shelter for bustling assembly lines that wouldn't fit inside the packed factory. - For all its rapid growth and dominance in electric vehicles, Tesla is still just the 10th biggest auto manufacturer in North America. The new plant in Austin should change that and, according to Levy, help Tesla maintain its EV lead for as long as the supply imbalances continue. Original Source : https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2022-tesla-factory-california-texas-car-production/ GM TO INVEST $6.5 BILLION IN MICHIGAN FOR EV PRODUCTION - General Motors Co. is expected to detail plans Tuesday to invest $6.5 billion in two Michigan sites and create 4,000 jobs in the state, according to a meeting agenda and two sources familiar with the situation. - The Detroit automaker is scheduled to announce its investment at an event in Lansing. The news would come a day before Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's State of the State address, which is expected to highlight the state's economic development efforts as the auto industry pivots to electrification. - GM and battery partner LG Energy Solution are planning a $2.5 billion investment in Lansing near GM's Delta Township plant for a battery cell manufacturing site that will support a growing list of coming EVs. - GM also received a tax abatement for a $1.3 billion investment at its Orion Assembly plant in Lake Orion to build EVs, but the investment amount there is expected to total $4 billion. Sources previously told The Detroit News the automaker plans to build electric trucks there.

By 2030, the alliance is expected to come up with more than 30 new battery EVs underpinned by five common platforms, they said. - That is in addition to 10 billion euros the group has already spent on electrification - The three-firm alliance has developed and partly deployed four common EV platforms. - One underpins EVs such as Nissan's upcoming Ariya and Renault's Megane EV, and another supports affordable no-frills cars by Nissan and its China market partner Dongfeng, as well as for Renault's Dacia brand. The other two are platforms for micro minis, called “kei cars” in Japan, and light commercial vehicles. - The automakers are expected to use common batteries and other key components. The alliance plans to jointly invest in capacity to produce in France, Britain, China and Japan a total of 220 gigawatt hours of battery capacity by 2030 under the plan, the sources said.

I had no idea that the Ficus incorporates so many different type of plant (including epiphytes) and is even the name for a type of sea snail found near Singapore. But in the episode I concentrate on plants-- house plants mostly. I have a chat with the delightful Nanny Noo (Julie Hart) of Launceston, Tasmania and before going into the normal gardening topic of pruning Hydrangea macrophylla (which you don't even have to do) I take a medium dive into the topic of doggie doo. There's more to it than you would think. Doomsday thinking from the EPA and more hopeful information from the USDA. Yes, it can be composted, but you REALLY need to know what you are doing.

Most Comprehensive Study To Date: Omega-3 Reduces Heart Risks The most in-depth analysis to date confirms the importance of omega-3 fats for heart health. If fatty fish is not a regular part of your diet, you may need to consider supplementing omega-3 fatty acids to keep your heart happy and healthy. University of Idaho and University of Queensland, December 30. 2021 The most in-depth analysis to date confirms the importance of consuming sufficient quantities of omega-3 fats for preventing cardiovascular disease. The meta-analysis, published in the peer-reviewed journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings, reviewed 40 clinical trials, and the multi-disciplinary team of researchers delivered an authoritative rallying cry for including more EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3 fats in your diet, citing their significant cardioprotective effects. (NEXT) Honey and Nigella sativa against COVID-19: A multi-center placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial Riphah University (Pakistan), Harvard University, University of Louisville, December 30, 2021 BACKGROUND No definitive treatment exists for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Honey and Nigella sativa (HNS) have established antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Hence, we investigated efficacy of HNS against COVID-19. wide Three hundred and thirteen patients - 210 moderate and 103 severe - underwent randomization from April 30 to July 29, 2020. Among these, 107 were assigned to HNS whereas 103 to placebo for moderate cases. For severe cases, 50 were given HNS and 53 were given placebos. HNS resulted in ∼50% reduction in time taken to alleviate symptoms as compared to placebo. HNS also cleared the virus 4 days earlier than placebo group in moderate (6 versus 10 days. HNS further led to hospital discharge in 50% versus 2.8% in severe cases In severe cases, mortality rate was four-fold lower in HNS group than placebo CONCLUSION HNS significantly improved symptoms, viral clearance and mortality in COVID-19 patients. Thus, HNS represents an affordable over the counter therapy and can either be used alone or in combination with other treatments to achieve potentiating effects against COVID-19. (NEXT) Promoting exercise rehabilitation as new and powerful tool for managing symptoms of multiple sclerosis University of Worcester (UK) and University of Illinois, December 29, 2021. Citing recent evidence, experts in rehabilitation research advocate for integrating exercise into the care plans of persons with multiple sclerosis. The central role of the neurologist in clinical care offers an opportunity for this provider to promote exercise as fundamental for managing the physical and cognitive symptoms of MS. Mounting evidence supports exercise as an important tool for managing the manifestations of MS, including fatigue, depression, and declines in physical mobility, balance, and cognition. While disease-modifying therapies can slow the progression of disease and disability, they do not alleviate symptoms or functional decline that adversely affect quality of life. Despite the advantages of exercise, physical inactivity is reported by 80 percent of people with MS. (NEXT) Sustainable diet leads to fewer blood clots in the brain Aarhus University (Denmark), January 4, 2022 The risk of bleeding or blood clots in the brain is lower if your diet is sustainable. This is shown by a new research result from Aarhus University. The results have just been published in the scientific journal Stroke. There should be more vegetables and less meat on the plate in front of us. A study from the Department of Public Health shows that a sustainable diet not only benefits the climate, but also benefits your health. "If adult men or women follow a sustainable diet for dietary fibre intake, then we see a lower risk of bleeding or blood clots in the brain," says Christina Dahm, who is behind the study. The seven official Danish climate-friendly dietary guidelines Eat plant-rich, varied and not too much. Eat more vegetables and fruit. Eat less meat – choose legumes and fish. Eat whole grains. Choose vegetable oils and low-fat dairy products. Eat less of the sweet, salty and fatty. Quench your thirst in water. (NEXT) Eating when we are not hungry is bad for our health University of Illinois, December 30, 2021 With the wide availability of convenient foods engineered for maximum tastiness— such as potato chips, chocolates, and bacon double cheeseburgers— in the modern food environment and with widespread advertising, the contemporary consumer is incessantly being bombarded with the temptation to eat. This means that, in contrast to people in traditional societies, people in contemporary societies often eat not on account of hunger but because tasty food is available and beckoning at all hours of the day. New research published in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research, found that the tendency of today's consumers to eat when they are not hungry might be less advantageous for health than eating when they are hungry. (NEXT) Black raspberries a contender for best antioxidant fruit, says study University of Agriculture (Poland), January 4, 2022 Black raspberries show greater health benefits than its closely related cousins the red raspberry and blackberry, research suggests. The research looked at the content of phenolics and anthocyanins in black raspberries, red raspberries and blackberries, assessing their antioxidant potential and health promoting properties. The study, which took place at the University of Agriculture in Krakow, discovered the amount of antioxidants in black raspberries was three times higher than the other fruits investigated. One discovery of note was the black raspberries' anthocyanines content, which was found to be approximately 1000% more than the raspberry and blackberry. Interestingly, black raspberries also contained a higher content of secondary metabolites, which have been proved equally beneficial for human health. (NEXT) Only 9% of teens meet physical activity guidelines during the pandemic, down from 16% pre-pandemic by University of Toronto A new national study finds that only 9% of teens met the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day during the pandemic—a decline from 16% pre-pandemic. "The pandemic led to the cancelation of in-person physical education classes and organized sports, gym and recreational facility closures, and rises in screen use, which all contributed to lower physical activity for teens," said lead author Jason Nagata, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco. The study found that lower physical activity was linked to poorer mental health, greater stress, and more worry about the pandemic. On average, teens reported two hours of physical activity per week during the pandemic. These estimates were lower for teens of color—Black, Latino, and Native American teens reported an average of 90 minutes of physical activity per week. (NEXT) RESPONSE TO COLUMBIA DOCTOR - Cases among fully vaccinated Back in late November in an interview with NBC News reported Fauci had stated that there was a significant increase in ER visits and hospitalizations among fully vaccinated people As usual, Fauci stated that most hospitalizations were among the unvaccinated according to studies – a trope he often repeats without ever mentioning what studies prove that. But for greater transparency we need to look at report overseas by health officials Dr Kristiaan Deckers from the GZA Hospital network in Belgium reported that 100% of ICU admissions were among the vaccinated. In the UK- the government's Public Health Data division reported that during the months of August to early December that persons who were double or triple vaccinated accounted for 6 in every 10 Covid cases, 7 in every 10 hospitalizations and 9 in every 10 Covid-19 deaths In the month of November alone, the fully vaccinated accounted for 62% of cases, 71% o hospitalizations and 85% of deaths And just before Xmas, the UK Office of National Statistics reported that triple vaccinated persons are 4.5 times more likely to test positive for the omicron variant compared to the unvaccinated and partially vaccinated Again last month ,South Korea reported record covid cases. The adult Korean population is almost completely fully vaccinated at 92% In France, the nations top virologist Prof Christian Perrone, and a long time health policy advisor to the French government has called for the lockdown of vaccinated people as being the super spreaders The very recent Danish study showed that the vaccines plus boosters showed a strong NEGATIVE efficacy against omicron – 78% of omicron cases are among the fully vaccinated which represents 77.5% of the Danish population – in other words, the vaccines have zero efficacy against omicron A German study based on the government's data by Prof emeritus Rolf Steyer at Fredrick Schiller University medical school also last month found that the higher the vaccination rate, the higher the excess mortality Recently was the Columbia University study – vaccine induced fatality rates are underreported by a factor of 20. Consequently thee actual number of deaths due to the Covid vaccines is between 146,000 and 187,000 Finally there are increasing reports by doctors and nurses in the field, in hospitals, clinics and emergency rooms who are reported that the large majority of covid cases are among the vaccinated. In a large Rochester NY hospital – one ER professional reported that 90% of individuals admitted into the hospital are vaccinated (NEXT) VIDEOS Video - POLICE STATE: Australians Mass Protest After Churches Raided, Moms Arrested, Citizen Snitches - 7.5 minutes

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 4th January. 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. WILL TESLA SELL OVER 1.5 MILLION ELECTRIC CARS IN 2022? - The starting point is over 936,000 in 2021. Assuming that the rate of 300,000+ units per quarter would be maintained for all of 2022, the company would be at 1.2 million total. - In terms of new plants, according to the latest reports, Tesla Giga Austin in Texas should start production soon, and Tesla Giga Berlin in Grünheide near Berlin, Germany also appears ready to start production. - If those two new plants would add 300,000 together, with a maintained rate from Q4 by the plants in California and China, the total would then exceed 1.5 million. That's 600,000 additional BEVs in a year. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/558267/tesla-ev-sales-2022-forecast/ 4 MILLION PEOPLE WILL DRIVE TESLAS BY THE END OF 2022 - According to our data, Tesla has delivered by the end of 2021 more than 2,335,000 all-electric cars, which is by way more than anyone else. - This number includes more than half a million Model S/Model X and more than 1.8 million Model 3/Model Y. - considering the recent production rate of 308,600 units in Q4 2021, we should see 2.5 million total and 2 million Model 3/Model Y in February/March. - Assuming 1.5 million new Tesla cars in 2022, there would be over 3.8 million total, maybe more, depending on what the current year will bring. 4 million Teslas would be a tremendous achievement. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/558272/4-million-teslas-2022-forecast/ FORD F-150 LIGHTNING PRICING ANNOUNCED - Ford announced pricing and more details about the Ford F-150 Lightning, which later this week will be available for order (by reservation holders, in batches). As we know, there are four versions of the truck, Pro, XLT, Lariat and Platinum. Production of all four types will begin in Spring. MSRP price of Ford F-150 Lightning in the U.S.: Pro: $39,974 XLT: $52,974 Lariat: $67,474 Platinum: $90,874 - The Pro version comes with the Standard Range Battery for up to 230 miles (370 km) of expected EPA range. There is also the Extended Range Battery that extends the range up to 300 miles (483 km) - optional in the case of XLT and Lariat ($10,000), and standard in the Platinum trim. - there is a Pro version with the Extended Range Battery ($10,000 option) but it's envisioned only for fleets. - According to the previous report, the difference between the two battery options is 33 kWh of usable battery capacity: Standard Range Battery: 98 kWh Extended Range Battery: 131 kWh Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/558716/ford-f150-lightning-pricing/ F-150 Lightning Options Add Up To Rivian Territory Real Fast - The Lightning really begins to pale when you start adding luxuries, like heated seats. Butt warmers require equipment group 312A, which also includes Ford's CoPilot 360 2.0 Level 2 driver assist suite, a power tailgate and a heated leather steering wheel in addition to other, less noteworthy bells and whistles. That's another $9,500 on the sticker. - Couple the extended range battery with 312A to get the Lightning relatively close to the R1T's base spec in terms of interior comforts and performance, and you're spending $74,169 including destination. - Poking around both electric pickups' build-and-price tools, here's the impression I get: the F-150 Lightning is obviously the more affordable truck and actually attainable for those with less to spend. However, if you plan on checking boxes for options, the R1T will quickly become the better value. For $60K-$70K, it's the more compelling package.

Despite the global chip crisis, electric vehicle sales dominated the market and made up 64.5 percent of sales in 2021, which is the highest percentage ever achieved by them. - The country's record month in terms of EVs sales market share was September, with 77.5 percent of all vehicles sold in the country being battery electric vehicles. - Tesla is the most popular brand in Norway, beating Volkswagen's 11-year success story. The Model 3 was the number one favorite for Norwegian customers, followed by Toyota's RAV4 EV, and Volkswagen's ID.4. Tesla's Model Y achieved fourth place.

The update may have been implemented during the final weeks of 2021. - Previously, the all-electric pickup truck's order page featured a simple note stating that customers will be able to “complete their (your) configuration as production nears in 2022.” Tesla's Cybertruck order page today simply informs customers that they will be able to complete their vehicle configurations as production nears.

With the future of food policy looking murky, we turn to experts in the field to help us understand the realities of the bureaucracy surrounding food security, farming rights, and pesticide regulation. We speak to scientists whose research influences the policy we see on the congressional floor. We hear from nonprofits working to navigate the endless maze of food assistance programs and advocate for those on the receiving end. And, we break down the legislation influencing the future of food sovereignty in the US. There are rarely clear answers or defined conclusions when it comes to the policy surrounding one of humans' most basic needs. But, as we head into the new year, we hope these stories serve as a reminder that there are people working towards a more equitable and sustainable food future for all.

Today's episode is part of an end of year special series. I am resharing some of my most actionable episodes to help you reduce pain on your period and pain flares in general, and to balance your hormones for better periods, less PMS and healthier cycles. I am sharing these episodes because this time of year is often when some of our endo management strategies can go out of the window (and understandably so!). We might have more sugar, less sleep, more alcohol and more blood sugar dysregulation, and as a result, these can all raise inflammation and give our bodies a hard time when it comes to clearing old and excess hormones. So come January or maybe sooner, we tend to have more PMS, worse periods and more pain. So these episodes are designed to provide you with some tips you can quickly implement if you're worried about your upcoming period, or you're feeling rough and need some tips to improve your symptoms. Now of course, it's natural that we want to indulge a bit over Christmas, and so these episodes are not about telling you to be a saint. Instead, they're about practices you can throw in that can just help lessen some of the impact. I am releasing a couple so you can choose strategies you think will help you most and so you have options, but you certainly don't have to try them all! And whilst I'm here, if you find that you want to learn more about how to eat for endo and for hormone balance, or you get to the end of the festive period and you really just want to improve your systems, I now have my Nutrition for Endo Masterclasses, which are available to buy all year round, unlike my courses. Lucky for you, they're still discounted because I haven't had time to change the prices, so you can still get each masterclass for £29.99 or you can buy the bundle for £50. You could also ask for them as a Christmas present! Finally, thank you for listening to this podcast this year, and for sticking with me even with my sporadic release dates as I navigate all of these new courses and offerings with recording my free content. I am wishing you a wonderful festive break (if you celebrate) and a very happy New Year. So, without further ado, let's get to today's episode. I really hope it helps you manage some of your symptoms over this festive period. Six Foods To Eat Before Your Period To Reduce Pain with Endometriosis Today I wanted to follow up on last week's episode Six Tips for Reducing Endometriosis Pain in The Week Before Your Period, with something a little more focused around nutrition. As most of you will know by now, I lean towards making healthy choices to support us with endo all month long, but that doesn't mean that focusing on foods to add in just before our period can't be useful. In fact, if you're struggling with where to get started with endometriosis management, I would start here and with my last episode. As always, these are just options - you don't have to do them all nor do you have to do them exactly as suggested, tweak and tailor to your lifestyle and preferences. If you're triggered by any of this, seek the support of a therapist and dietician/health coach/nutritionist before making further dietary changes. So, here are any foods to to eat before your period to reduce pain with endometriosis: Spinach and other leafy greens such as kale, boy chow, lettuce, rocket, chard and other greens. Add these in for anti-inflammatory nutrients, magnesium iron and fibre. Leafy greens can help to reduce period pain, fatigue, PMS symptoms like bloating and can aid reducing any excess oestrogen. You can throw some spinach in your morning smoothie and a big handful or two of lettuce to your lunch. Olive oil and other Vitamin E containing foods such as almonds, olives, avocados, greens and sunflower seeds. Vitamin E has been shown to reduce inflammation in numerous studies, as well as reduce pain with endometriosis and painful periods. Try drizzling two tablespoons of olive oil or sunflower seed butter over your lunch time salad, and snacking on almonds! Broccoli and other cruciferous veg like kale, cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli sprouts, sprouts and cabbage. These help to reduce oestrogen dominance by supporting the body to remove old oestrogen that needs clearing out and can cause symptoms like clots periods, heavy periods and period pain. You could try roasting wedges of red cabbage and mixing into a salad, grating red cabbage over a tex-mea meal or adding broccoli sprouts to salads and smoothies. Salmon and other sources of omega 3 fats such as mackerel, anchovies, sardines, herring, walnuts and chia seeds. Omega 3 fats help to lower inflammation and have been shown to reduce period pain and in studies on rats, reduce the size of endometriosis lesions. Add no more than two portions of fatty fish a week in addition to walnuts and chia seeds, and be cautious of large fatty fish as these can have a higher mercury content. If you don't eat fish, it's worth noting that most of us can't convert plant-based sources of omega. fats into the usable form, so you'll need to supplement with a vegan DHA and EPA supplement. One way to get in extra fish is to pair it with a Mediterranean salad and whole grains like quinoa for dinner, and try adding in some chia with a chia pot snack mixed with blueberries, walnuts and some almond milk. Tomatoes and other colourful vegetables such as berries, red cabbage, parsnips, peppers, squashed carrots. Studies have shown that people with endometriosis have higher levels of oxidation (which leads to higher levels of inflammation and therefore pain) and that when participants added in a high anti-oxidant diet in the form of extra fruits and vegetables, their oxidation levels lowered. When it comes to fruit and veggies, the more colour, the more anti-oxidants - so eat the rainbow! Try snacking on red and yellow peppers and cucumber dipped in hummus, and make a dinner that has a delicious roasted veg salad with it such as roasted carrots, beetroot and fennel - delicious with some puy lentils, fresh herbs and rocket! Turmeric and other herbs and spices like cinnamon and ginger. Many herbs and spices are anti-inflammatory, yet turmeric, ginger and cinnamon are particular stand-out stars, with curcumin (the active compound in turmeric) showing promise with endometriosis lesion suppression and ruction in mice, and ginger being an effective pain reliever in people with primary dysmenorrhea. How about making up a daily turmeric latte and a carrot and ginger soup to enjoy for the week? Bonus food! Raw cacao and sugar free dark chocolate. Rich in magnesium, iron and anti-oxidants, raw cacao can help lower inflammation and support energy production, whilst helping us with those sugar cravings! Just be mindful of how much you have as cacao does have a little caffeine. My superfood hot chocolate recipe is a lovely way to get this delicious food into your diet before your period.

There was one guy walking his pet pig — he'd had it for five months, he said — which had its snout pressed to the ground, hoovering the tarmac for fallen sweets, treats or dried meats. 採買的顧客穿著保暖的衣服，有些只是居家服，也有人穿得很慎重。人群中有僧侶、外國人、攝影師、帶著孩子的母親，以及把狗扛在肩上或用寵物推車推著的飼主。還有一個人牽著寵物豬──他說他已經養了五個月──那隻豬把鼻子貼在地上，把掉在路面上的糖果、零食或肉乾吸起來吃。 Source article: http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2020/01/18/2003729416 Next Article Topic: EPA steps up checks for carcinogenic industrial dye in Mid-Autumn mooncakes With the Mid-Autumn Festival nearly upon us, bakery shelves are heaving with a vast array of appetizing mooncakes in a mind-boggling variety of shapes, sizes and flavors. For many Taiwanese gourmands, the venerable egg yolk pastry is a special favorite. However, in the past some unscrupulous businesses were discovered to have added the harmful industrial dye Sudan Red G to their egg yolk pastries to give the salty egg yolks a rosy-red luster. Sudan Red G was classified as a toxic chemical by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) in July 2018. The administration says it has been carrying out inspections since the ban but has not discovered any illegal use of Sudan Red G. However, with increased demand for egg yolk pastries during the festive season, the administration says it will intensify inspection work during the period. 中秋佳節即將到來，市面上開始出現各式各樣可口的月餅，尤其蛋黃酥最受歡迎。然而過去曾發生有不肖業者為了使鹹蛋黃色澤紅潤，而添加對人體有害的工業用染料「蘇丹紅」。環保署表示，蘇丹紅色素已於二○一八年六月公告為「毒性化學物質」，近年來稽查沒有再發現業者違法使用蘇丹紅，不過考量中秋節將近，鹹蛋黃需求增加，環保署將加強稽查。 In the past, some egg farms would add the carcinogenic substance to duck feed in order to give their salted duck eggs a deep color and luster. In 2017, the illegal use of Sudan Red G was detected in an online retailer's salted egg yolk mooncakes. The poultry farm which supplied the egg yolks was required to cull its duck population and destroy its stock of duck eggs. Fraud charges were also brought against the farm. The following year, the EPA classified Sudan Red G as a category 4 toxic chemical. 過去有業者為了讓鹹鴨蛋看起來色澤飽滿，在鴨隻飼料中添加有致癌風險的蘇丹紅，二○一七年曾發生網購名店月餅原料鹹蛋黃被驗出違法添加蘇丹紅，供貨畜牧場鴨隻撲殺、鴨蛋銷毀，業者被依詐欺取財罪嫌起訴，環保署則在隔年將蘇丹紅色素列為第四類毒性化學物質。 Sudan Red G is in fact an umbrella term for a series of related chemical dyes that sound similar but have different molecular structures, chiefly Sudan Red I, II, III and IV, and Sudan Red 7B and G. Because the molecular structure of the Sudan Red G dye is easily soluble in oils, it is often used in industrial settings such as colorant in furniture paint, shoe polish, floor wax, car wax and oils to give products a rich color and luster. 蘇丹紅其實是幾種相似但不同的分子之統稱，這幾種化學物質常作為染料，主要包括：蘇丹紅I、蘇丹紅II、蘇丹紅III、蘇丹紅IV、蘇丹紅7B、蘇丹紅G，由於蘇丹紅色素的分子結構易溶於油脂，在工業上常用於家具漆、鞋油、地板蠟、汽車蠟和油脂著色，使色澤飽滿鮮豔。 Sudan Red G's unique properties — inexpensive, easy-to-obtain, stable, and color-fade resistant — mean that it often crops up in food safety incidents. In addition to salted egg yolks, outside of Taiwan Sudan Red G has been found to have been added to chilli sauce and chilli powder; however, the group of dyes with which Sudan Red G shares a common molecular structure are listed as category 3 carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. 由於蘇丹紅便宜易取得、穩定又不易褪色的特性，因此常在食安事件中佔有「一席之地」，除了鹹蛋黃，國外也曾在辣椒醬、辣椒粉中發現添加蘇丹紅；不過這類色素的分子都被國際癌症研究機構列為第三類致癌物。 EPA Toxic and Chemical Substances Bureau Director-General Hsieh Yein-rui advises consumers not to choose food products that appear overly vivid and bright, or that look unnatural. Hsieh adds that the nutritional value of egg yolks is the same whether they are yellow or red in color, and warns that customers who select egg-containing products on the basis of their bright luster may well be consuming adulterated egg yolks. 環保署毒物及化學物質局長謝燕儒呼籲，消費者不要挑選顏色過於鮮豔、看起來不自然的食品，且蛋黃不論是黃色或紅色營養價值都一樣，過度在意色澤，反而可能吃進「加料」的蛋黃。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/09/19/2003764584
NCLA Files Amicus in Sen. Cruz Campaign Lawsuit Mark explains the standing issue that led NCLA to file a SCOTUS amicus brief in FEC v. Cruz. FEC is urging the Supreme Court to adopt a new, heightened standard for establishing that an injury is “fairly traceable” to complained-of conduct, a showing required of all plaintiffs in order to establish their standing to sue. Adopting FEC's theory of standing would significantly restrict judicial challenges to all kinds of unlawful federal government action. The Clean Air Act and the Constitution Disallow EPA's Power Grab NCLA filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court this week in West Virginia v. EPA, supporting the Petitioner States' challenge against giving EPA vast power over entire economic sectors through a misreading of the Clean Air Act (CAA). NCLA argues that the judgment of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit should be reversed. The Constitution vests all legislative power in Congress. This means that national policy decisions are to be made by Congress, not by administrative agencies. The decarbonization of the energy industry—which the decision below authorizes EPA to impose—is a major national policy decision that Congress has not expressly made. Further, Congress may not delegate its legislative power over this decision for EPA to make in its stead. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This week I sat down with Dr. Richard E. Engler, B&C's and The Acta Group's (our consulting affiliate) Director of Chemistry, and Dr. Todd J. Stedeford, B&C's Of Counsel, to discuss a range of issues regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) all important implementation of the Lautenberg amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Rich was a 17-year veteran of EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) before joining our team. Todd is a more recent addition to our team, and is a lawyer and a toxicologist who recently completed a 20-year career with EPA where he served most recently as Senior Science Advisor in EPA's OPPT, and in other EPA leadership positions. Rich and Todd discuss a range of issues I know our listeners will find interesting and timely. These include EPA new chemical reviews, when is something “reasonably foreseen,” and what is an “unreasonable risk,” among other topics.

Is Build Back Better really dead? Could the climate and clean energy provisions live on? Political Climate weighs in on the timely issue of Senator Manchin's “no” on President Biden's marquee legislation. Plus, Brandon, Shane and Julia share some 2022 predictions.In the second half of the show we look at the troubling rise in global methane emissions. Methane is 80 times more potent as a global warming gas than carbon dioxide, and is responsible for roughly one-quarter of the climate warming we see today. Recognizing the scope and scale of the issue, the United States and European Union recently spearheaded a Global Methane Pledge at COP26, which has been signed by around 100 countries. In addition, the U.S. EPA has proposed new rules to tackle methane leaks from oil and gas production. To round out the episode, we speak to Sarah Smith, program director of super pollutants at the Clean Air Task Force, about why methane emissions are such a big problem and what's being done to address it.

The OmegaQuant test quantifies the percentage of EPA and DHA in your red blood cell membranes. They also look at palmitate. 04:15 When palmitate increases, it is a proxy that potentially de novo lipogenesis is occurring. This means that insulin is causing your liver to increase fatty acid synthesis, which can result in insulin resistance and fat gain. 05:15 A DEXA scan will show you where your fat is being distributed. It will also give insights into your bone mineral density. Ageing and gaining fat around the middle, has been linked with low mineral density and muscle mass. 05:23 Osteosarcopenic obesity is the simultaneous loss of bone mineral density, loss of muscle and gain of fat. 03:50 A DEXA scan every 2 years tracks the trajectory of your body composition and your muscle. The amount of fat on your body is a reflection of your vitality. 05:25 A full body MRI every 5 years or so can be done if you have cancer in your close family or you are a former smoker. 06:42 If cardiovascular disease runs in your family, or you have sleep apnea, iron overload or insulin resistance, you may consider testing your CIMT (carotid intimal thickness). It shows how much atherosclerosis or stenosis is in the carotid arteries. A coronary artery calcium score is more invasive. 07:30 The arterial pulse wave velocity test is non-invasive. It measures the elasticity of your vessels. Stiff arteries are characteristic of inflammation.

POLESTAR 2 SINGLE MOTOR BESTS TESLA MODEL 3 WITH 270 MILE RANGE - Polestar 2 Long Range Single Motor has been given a range of 270 miles (435 km) by the EPA. That's one of the best ratings in its class and it beats the 263 mile (423 km) Tesla Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive by a thin margin. - While the Tesla Model 3 is technically cheaper thanks to its $44,900 base price, it's not eligible for the federal tax credit. As a result, the $45,900 Polestar 2 is the better deal as the $7,500 incentive effectively lowers the price to $38,400. - The Tesla is also significantly faster as the dash to 60 mph (96 km/h) takes 5.8 seconds, which makes it 1.2 seconds quicker than the Polestar. - Polestar confirmed their recently announced performance upgrade for the 2 Long Range Dual Motor will be offered in America.

However, Transport & Environment (T&E) cautioned against leaving behind the vast majority of motorists who live and work in existing buildings, where there will be no requirement. - New and renovated non-residential buildings, such as offices and shops, would also have to be equipped with a minimum number of installed charging points, according to the proposed new Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). And, for the first time, drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) would have the right to install a charger – at their own cost, if necessary – whenever they purchase or lease an EV in Europe.

A smaller-capacity 58kWh battery is expected to net a range of around 260 miles. - The firm has yet to reveal the 296bhp Enyaq vRS – which will be closely related to the Volkswagen ID 4 GTX – but could make the trim available first on the Enyaq Coupé. - Skoda has yet to hint at how much the Enyaq Coupé will cost, but its style-led billing will probably incur a slight premium over the standard car, which starts at £34,850.

In its second deal to supply Shell with direct current fast chargers, Tritium said it had been selected as a partner in the latest tender, in pursuit of Shell's ambition to operate 500,000 EV charge points by 2025 and 2.5 million by 2030. - Shell's business operations in Europe, South Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America. - The exact amount of fast charging units the deal is expected to include was not disclosed by Tritium, but Shell has more than 46,000 retail sites around the world.

The automakers point out that 50 kW DC fast chargers were fine a few years ago because that's all the EVs could accept, but today and to future-proof, 150 kW and 350 KW units are necessary.

Há algumas semanas, no Braincast 433, a gente falou da ansiedade e dos medos que cercam a volta ao mundo presencial. O tempo que passamos isolados. Os traumas que criamos nesses meses. E, principalmente, a confusão entre sair do isolamento sem sair da pandemia, com novas variantes chegando de toda a parte, tornaram esse retorno menos divertido do que sonhávamos. E esse retorno vai passar por uma prova de fogo esse mês. O período mais aguardado pelo mercado e pelas crianças do mundo todo chegou. E nós não podíamos estar menos animados com ele. No Braincast 437, Carlos Merigo, Beatriz Fiorotto, Cris Dias, Luiz Yassuda e Marko Mello compartilham lembranças, dicas e estratégias para sobreviver às festas de fim de ano das empresas. _____ VOLVO Voltamos pro nosso plantão Volvo, diretamente de dentro de um Volvo XC40, o primeiro carro 100% elétrico da marca. Eu sei que você deve ter muitas dúvidas sobre o carro elétrico. Eu também tinha, e é exatamente por isso que vim ver na prática como ele funciona. Pra vocês verem como a coisa é séria, a autonomia do XC 40 é de até 418 quilômetros. E se você quer saber quanto resta até a próxima recarga, é só perguntar: "Hey Google, qual é minha autonomia?" Imagina usar só o acelerador pra dirigir? A Volvo criou o sistema One Pedal Drive, em que basta aliviar um pouco a pressão nesse pedal e o carro já começa a frear. Uma praticidade dessas, né bixo? O método de recarga do XC40 e o plano de eletrificação das cidades da Volvo, além de todos os detalhes sobre esse carro, estão lá no volvocars.com esperando sua visita. -- A autonomia está em conformidade com os ciclos de condução WLTP e EPA mas pode variar em ambiente real. Os valores são baseados no objetivo preliminar. A aguardar a certificação final do veículo. Google é uma marca registrada da Google LLC.

It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. TOYOTA'S ELECTRIC VEHICLE PLANS ARE GETTING BIGGER AND MORE EXPENSIVE - Toyota is ramping up its electric vehicle production schedule, vowing to release 30 electric vehicles by 2030 rather than just 15 EVs by 2025, as was previously promised. The Japanese automaker also vowed to sell 3.5 million battery EVs globally by 2030 and to transform Lexus into an EV-only brand by 2035. - the company's top executives, including billionaire CEO Akio Toyoda, have been on the record calling the trend toward electric vehicles “overhyped” in part because of emissions associated with power plants — which is a favorite talking point used by the oil and gas industry. - But in an event Tuesday, Toyoda changed his tune, touting the need for the company to reduce tailpipe emissions by releasing more EVs. - As part of the announcement, Toyota showed several dozen concept vehicles, including sedans, sports cars, crossovers, SUVs, pickup trucks, and even a couple of boxy shuttles. The company didn't release many details about each vehicle but did note that a planned Lexus sports car would have a “cruising range” of 700 km (434 miles) and be able to accelerate from 0 to 60mph in under two seconds.

We've already seen one proper production model under this new umbrella -- the BZ4X, which will spawn a unique Lexus variant, the RZ, Original Source : https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/toyota-lexus-electric-sports-car-teaser-preview/ TOYOTA REVEALS ASTOUNDING LINEUP OF FUTURE ELECTRIC CARS FOR 'BEYOND ZERO' BRAND AND MORE - They include a BZ small crossover, a BZ compact SUV, a BZ sedan and a BZ large SUV. It's clear these vehicles are concepts or design studies for now, with blacked-out windows to hide their lack of real interiors. - another eight electric cars to fill out this line with some exciting potential cars. There are two commercial vehicles, called the Mid Box and Micro Box, and two more SUVs. One appears on the smaller side with the name "Small SUEV" and the other looks closer to the BZ compact SUV concept, though it just wears a "Crossover EV" name. - Toyota showed what sure looks like a successor to the beloved FJ Cruiser called the Compact Cruiser EV concept. The boxy off-road SUV wears a familiar shade of blue to the departed Jeep Wrangler rival and even rocks similar design language to the previous SUV. There's also the Pickup EV, which looks a lot like today's Tacoma with minimal changes and -- are you ready for this? -- a sports car. Original Source : https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/toyota-reveals-future-electric-cars-beyond-zero/ TOYOTA SHIFTS GEARS WITH MAJOR INVESTMENT IN ELECTRIC VEHICLES - In November, Toyota declined to join a pledge signed by six major carmakers, including General Motors, and Ford Motor Co. to phase out fossil fuel cars by 2040. It argued that not all parts of the world would be ready to transition to green cars by then. - In addition to battery EVs, Toyota also builds hydrogen fuel cell cars, and is developing internal combustion engines that run on hydrogen fuel, although it has not said when it might commercialize the technology. - Toyota recently promised that it will be ready to sell only zero-emission cars in Europe by 2035 Original Source : https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2021/12/14/business/corporate-business/toyota-30-ev-models-2030/ HERE'S HOW MUCH HYUNDAI'S COOL, NEW IONIQ 5 EV WILL COST - The cheapest way to get an Ioniq 5 will be the 125 kW (168 hp) rear-wheel drive SE Standard Range model with the smaller 58 kWh battery pack. This will cost $39,700 before the IRS 30D tax credit and any local incentives. However, as is nearly always the case with a new car regardless of OEM, if you want the cheapest one, you need to be prepared to wait, as it will only become available in spring 2022. - The cheapest long-range Ioniq 5 is the $43,650 RWD SE, then there's the $45,900 Ioniq 5 SEL, followed by $50,600 Ioniq 5 Limited. If you prefer more power and don't mind charging slightly more often, that version of the Ioniq 5 SE starts at $47,150, with the AWD Ioniq 5 SEL at $49,900 and the AWD Ioniq 5 Limited at $54,500. Original Source : https://arstechnica.com/cars/2021/12/heres-how-much-hyundais-cool-new-ioniq-5-ev-will-cost/ THE 'CHEAP' HYUNDAI IONIQ 5 UNDERCUTS ALMOST ALL EV CROSSOVERS/SUVS - This entry-level version has 220 miles of EPA range, a 125 kW electric motor for rear-wheel-drive, and, most importantly, an MSRP of $39,700 (+$1,225 DST), which after deducting the $7,500 federal tax credit will turn into effectively $33,425. Once we checked the list of available EVs, it turns out that it's one of the least expensive electric crossovers/SUVs. - An interesting thing is that the Hyundai Ioniq 5 SR undercuts the base Ford Mustang Mach-E on price (by $4,195), but is expected to deliver only a slightly lower range, despite the battery being much smaller. On the other hand, the Ford Mustang Mach-E should be much quicker. Hyundai Ioniq 5 will fast charge at a higher rate. - Here is another surprise, the entry-level Hyundai Ioniq 5 is marginally less expensive than the Volkswagen ID.4 (we don't have prices for the 2022 model year yet). However, that's only because the ID.4 does not have its lower-spec trims on the market yet (like the 62 kWh battery version). It also has noticeably more range and power. - he Hyundai Ioniq 5 SR is $200 less expensive than the base Kia Niro EV. And the EPA range is only slightly lower. - The poor Chevrolet Bolt EUV is temporarily out of production, but even if it was being produced, it would not be eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit. It means that after deducting the tax credit, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 SR would be, on paper, less expensive. Pretty surprising anomaly considering how much smaller the Bolt EUV is. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/554563/cheap-hyundai-ioniq5-price-comparison/amp/ NEW 2022 CUPRA BORN ELECTRIC CAR: SPECS, DETAILS AND PRICES - Cupra has announced pricing for the first version of its Born electric family hatchback to go on sale, as well as new trim level details. Prices will start from £33,735, though extra variants will be added to the range in time. - Eventually, the Born range will consist of four models, however, the mid-range variant which uses 58kWh battery and 201bhp electric motor is the only one you can order for the time being. This particular version has a range of 263 miles, while 0-62mph takes 7.3 seconds. - Prices start from £33,735 for the 58kWh/201bhp Born in V1 trim, with standard equipment including 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a 12-inch central infotainment screen, reversing camera and safety systems like lane assist and tiredness recognition.

RIVIAN R1T 210KW PEAK DC CHARGING, LACK OF HEAT PUMP - US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) test documents have revealed a number of interesting tidbits about the 2022 Rivian R1T and R1S, including the vehicles' peak DC charging rate and their absence of a heat pump. - R1T and R1S have a peak DC charging rate of 210 KW, which is right in line with what the company quoted for its proprietary DC Adventure Network. Similar to Tesla Superchargers, the Adventure Network is designed specifically by Rivian for its vehicles, though the company has noted that the system could be opened to other EVs in the future. - Rivian has been quite subtle about the Adventure Network's full specs, though the company has noted that its fast chargers would offer over 200 kW output for the R1T and the R1S. This should allow the all-electric pickup truck and SUV to replenish up to 140 miles of range in 20 minutes. Rivian did state that further improvements down the line would likely improve the fast chargers to over 300 kW. - Rivian's EPA test documents also featured a specific section for the R1T and R1S' heat pump, though a look at the filings itself reveals that the vehicles are not equipped with the component. Considering that heat pumps are known to increase the efficiency of electric vehicles in the cold, it would be quite interesting to see how the R1T and the R1S' range could hold up in places with extremely cold temperatures. Original Source : https://www.teslarati.com/rivian-max-charging-rate-no-heat-pump-confirmed/ RIVIAN NABS A COVETED MOTORTREND AWARD FOR ITS DEBUT EV PICKUP - MotorTrend awarded its prestigious 2022 "Truck of the Year" to an upstart: the electric Rivian R1T, setting a high bar for rival Tesla's upcoming Cybertruck. - Rivian beat out finalists that other electric vehicles, including General Motor's Hummer EV Pickup, to bag the prize with its very first model. The award goes beyond bragging rights. Rivian gains prestige and credibility at a key point when the upstart desperately needs to justify its $100 billion market cap. - Tesla took home the title of 2013 MotorTrend Car of the Year with its landmark Model S. Yet its most recent model, the highly popular Model Y crossover, didn't even make it to the short-list for 2021 SUV of the Year after being named a contender. Original Source : https://fortune.com/2021/12/13/rivian-r1t-motortrend-award-ev-pickup-tesla-cybertruck/ TESLA, MERCEDES TAKE OPPOSITE APPROACHES TO TOUCHSCREEN GAMEPLAY - Tesla runs counter to the traditional auto industry in a lot of ways, from the tweets of CEO Elon Musk to starting as an all-electric automaker in the early 2000s. The latest example of Tesla's different approach is the way it and Daimler have each responded to recent questions of safety and in-car entertainment. - Specifically, both Tesla and Mercedes have permitted people to play video games on the car's touchscreen while the vehicle is in motion, although Mercedes considers it a mistake and is recalling vehicles to remedy the problem, while Tesla has not yet done that. - Minimizing distracted driving has been at the forefront of the agenda for U.S. safety regulators for years now, even as cars get more connected and in-cabin screens multiply and continue to grow larger. - As for Mercedes, the German automaker issued a recall for four models—the 2021 S580 and the 2022 EQS450, EQS 580, and S500—when it discovered that some of those vehicles on the road had been programmed with an "incorrect configuration" on Mercedes-Benz's back-end server and potentially on the MBUX infotainment system in these vehicles. The error allows "vehicle occupants to activate those functions [including TV and digital owner's manual, as well as the games] while the vehicle is driving." - Tesla, on the other hand, has allowed video games to be played in some of its vehicles for years. That's fine when the car is parked, but this summer, an over-the-air software update allowed three video games to be played even while the car was in motion. Original Source : https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a38495628/tesla-mercedes-touchscreen-video-games-moving-cars/ MERCEDES EQS RECALLED AFTER 56-INCH DISPLAY ALLOWED TV WHILE DRIVING - Impacted models include the 2021 S580 and 2022 models of both vehicles made before Nov. 16—specifically the S500, EQS450, and EQS580, for a total of 227 vehicles. - Mercedes investigated the issue after receiving a report of its occurrence in an "internal vehicle," presumably a company car or prototype. It subsequently determined "an incorrect configuration was available on Mercedes-Benz's backend server and might have been installed on vehicles in the field." - The carmaker has updated the server implicated in the issue and states in the NHTSA document that no dealer service will be needed for affected vehicles, though it still notified dealers this week. · Original Source : https://www.thedrive.com/tech/43464/mercedes-eqs-recalled-after-56-inch-display-allowed-tv-while-driving CHECK OUT THIS TESLA MODEL S WITH A LARGER CHARGING FLAP: FOR CCS? - a Tesla Model S test car was seen with a surprisingly big charging flap within the rear light segment, which appears to be similar to the one in the Tesla Model 3/Model Y cars. - As noted by Tesla_Adri (@tesla_adri), it might be a new, enlarged version of the charging flap that will be used to accommodate the CCS-compatible charging port in the refreshed Model S/Model X in Europe (and other markets). - r, as the company launched the Model 3/Model Y in Europe with the CCS Combo 2-compatible inlet, it was obvious that a similar fate will befall also the Model S/X once the refreshed version enters the market. The older Model S/Model X was forced to use an adapter to charge at CCS 2 fast chargers. - The refreshed Tesla Model S/Model X are expected to get a CCS Combo 2-compatible inlet in Europe and basically in most global markets (aside from North America, South Korea, China and some other countries). This bigger charging inlet for AC and DC charging requires more space: - In other words, it's an expected and positive move for Tesla, which will offer unified and industrywide compatible solutions for charging (AC 1- and 3-phase, as well as DC). The European Supercharging network is already retrofitted with two types of plugs - the Type 2 (used for DC charging) and CCS2. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/553824/tesla-models-charging-flap-ccs/ TESLA FULL SELF-DRIVING BETA CAUSES ACCIDENT WITH MODEL Y - Over the weekend, video of an incident in what was reported to be a Tesla Model Y was posted to Youtube. The video, which was later removed from YouTube shows the crossover, which was reportedly running Tesla's “Full Self Driving” level two driver assist system veers toward an oncoming car before the driver grabs the wheel to disengage “FSD” and leaves the road. The video was reposted on Twitter. - The video begins with the Model Y rounding a long, gentle curve on a two-lane road. As another vehicle approaches the Tesla in the opposing lane, the Model Y straightens its steering to send the electric crossover on a path for a head-on collision. The driver reacts quickly to retake control from the Full Self-Driving Beta and pull their Model Y back to the right. - The driver lost control of the Model Y, and the vehicle slid off the road. The crossover fell into and then launched out of a small ditch along the side of the road. The Tesla bounced over the terrain before coming to a stop near a home.

To denote this new focus on performance, Volkswagen has introduced that new GTX badge, but while the connection to VW's GTI will bring with it a higher level of scrutiny, the ID.4's large SUV form suggests it's not exactly a B-road brawler. - The good news is that Volkswagen has given the GTX some decent mechanical changes to coincide with its sportier disposition, namely adding that second electric motor to the ID.4's MEB platform. This second motor is mounted on the front axle, which together with the existing rear-mounted motor creates a total of 295bhp and 339lb ft of torque, giving the GTX a reasonable 6.2sec 0-62mph time and a top speed of 112mph. - The battery pack is unchanged from that of other high-spec ID.4s with a 77kWh useable capacity (82kWh gross), giving a quoted WLTP range of 299 miles, or about 30 miles down on the most efficient single-motor variant with the same battery capacity.
