Estimated reading time: 2 minutes ACC Nation Staff @accnation - Sports news 8 is this week's episode of ACC Nation's Weekend Wrap. The guys enjoy the sweet, sweet tears of Crimson Tide fans. Plus, they wonder where Paul Finebaum is now when it comes to Nick Saban. You know Finebaum, the guy who infamously proclaimed Dabo's Dynasty Done? Don't hold your breath waiting for his response. That game headlines our weekly 'Ooopsies' Top 25 upsets list along with some games that were just far too close for comfort. And, of course we jump into the madness of ACC+1 college football. If you weren't pumped up during this week's games then you might want to see a Doctor to confirm that you're still alive. Indulge us, if you will, for a few minutes, okay, many minutes in which to savor the deliciousness of Texas A&M knocking off Alabama. There's nothing quite like a loss to help bring the 'bragadocious' back down to Earth. So, maybe that won't sink in with one loss. So, we're predicting Georgia lays some 'whoopass' on Alabama and owns the SEC. Would that mean Tide fans will be sitting at home watching the Dawgs go for a national title? Like we said, delicious. We've all come to the conclusion that a madness, much like Rabies, is spreading like wildfire through both divisions of the ACC. Everything you thought you knew last week (think baby and bath water) got tossed out on Saturday. Some of the scrappiest games we've seen in a long time flooded the airwaves this weekend. Sorry Comcast subscribers. Close scores, last second (literally) efforts and even overtime were part of the discussion. DONATE Sports News 8 Have you followed or subscribed to ACC Nation yet?

Can you name the largest slave revolt in United States history? If you're thinking Nat Turner, try again.

In Season 2 Episode 2 we look at 3 fabulous pieces of music. The first being from the Beacon Theater in NYC on 6.14.1976. This piece has a Cosmic Charlie, played for only the 2nd time in 5 years, the 1st time since 1971 was only 10 days before this show! That follows with a very solid Help>Slip>Frank. Next we stay in NYC but we jump ahead to 1990 and at the World's Most Famous Arena...Madison Square Garden. September 18th was the date and the band had taken on 2 new members to replace Brent; Vince Welnick and Bruce Hornsby were in full effect on this sweet Eye>Estimated>Foolish Heart. Vince is coming into his own and Bruce makes himself right at home with some dominant keystrokes. The final piece is an odd combination but some stellar playing makes it worthwhile. From the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, December 1, 1979 it's early Brent showing his chops on a fantastic He's Gone into a way out Gloria Jam into the 1st ever CC Rider. This one was one of my earliest finds and I am thrilled to share it with all of you. Enjoy and we'll have another episode out soon.
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes While many of you are immersed in football there's a large number of fans who can't wait for the return of college basketball. The countdown is on and we thought it might be a good time to invite Tristan Freeman of Busting Brackets on to talk hoops. We get into their preseason Top 25 Power Rankings by looking at the Way-Too-Early version from April and the latest released in September. It gives us a good look at the impact of the transfer portal, both good and bad and how some of the 'COVID Seniors' impact teams as well. Freeman goes through the top 5 teams for us by looking at personnel. That's not all though. We get his thoughts on how the transfer portal is improving the game and how NIL may help keep players around longer. Then it's time for a look at the top teams in the ACC. Why Virginia Tech and Louisville were part of the earlier rankings but aren't any longer. What moved Virginia into the Honorable Mention category? Some thoughts on coaches, players and what the future holds. Don't forget to feed the kitty so the guys won't have to walk uphill both ways through blizzards this Winter. It's very much appreciated!

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes What an amazing way to kick-off college football in October. Six Top 25 teams took a dive while five ACC teams added some Pumpkin Spice to the mix with one score margin games. The Weekend Wrap takes a look at both categories tosses in a 'remote' reference that only regulars can fully appreciate. It all started and finished with hold your breath finishes in the conference as Virginia held on against Miami and Clemson fought back Boston College. There was a mixed bag in between among the ACC + 1. There's lots of Pitt chatter going on after their win but the one thing we didn't hear about was this. Did Geoff Collins shake Pat Narduzzi's hand at the end of the game this year? It appears as if the PAC 12 may have squandered their playoff hopes after their top ranked team got clipped in OT by an unranked. That wasn't the only loss in that conference either. Over in the SEC two top 15 teams lost to the unranked further weeding out teams that probably don't deserve to be there or ranked as high as they've been. Notre Dame finally met the wall in their matchup with Cincinnati. It was just a matter of time and to throw more gas on the fire now there's a big question mark at QB. None of the three thrown against the wall appeared to stick but is that a quarterback issue or something more? DONATE Pumpkin Spice Have you followed or subscribed to ACC Nation yet?

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes Our mid-week special guest is the Editor of Cardiac Hill. Mike Wilson talks Pitt Panther football. He takes us from an up and down September to what to look for as the schedule fleshes out. The chatter around Kenny Pickett is explored a bit more in detail. We look at his stats and even a recent comparison to Dan Marino. Is Pat Narduzzi sitting on a warm seat? Or, is there something he can do (remember 2018?) to get an extension? Anything seems possible in this division and for that matter, the conference. Wilson provides some analysis of the offense. Then he delves into why the defense is slower on the draw this season. There's a lot to talk about and a narrow window in which to fit it all. Be sure to subscribe to receive the podcast (free).

At the beginning of 2021 Lauri Haav altered his career path from the world of tech startups to the realm of government. This might sound like an incongruous move, but the Estonian government is more advanced than most countries in terms of its level of digitization and its embracing of technology, and Lauri is currently running a program which is the first of its kind. Almost 7 years ago Estonia launched their e-Residency program; this means that almost anyone, almost anywhere in the world, can become an e-resident of Estonia. Currently, if e-residents were a city, they would be the third biggest city in Estonia! If you're wondering why obtaining an Estonian e-ID card is an appealing option, you'll get all the answers in today's episode. We also discuss the various reasons why the Estonian government is so ahead of the curve in terms of digitization, how they have assisted their population in making the transition to digital platforms as seamless as possible, challenges that they have experienced, and what they hope to achieve in the coming years. Key Points From This Episode: • Estonia's advanced level of digitization, and what their e-Residency program is. • Lauri shares what his professional background in the tech space consisted of. • Similarities and differences between working in technology companies and working for government organizations. • Factors that resulted in the Estonian government's early embrace of the internet. • How Estonia's approach to electronic ID cards differs to most other European countries. • Lauri explains the mechanics of an E-ID card. • Estimated percentages of the Estonian population who make use of Estonia's various E-platforms. • Ways that Estonia ensures their e-Platforms are secure and their approach to privacy. • How the Estonian government attracts talent to its technology department. • Some examples which highlight the constraints of some traditional procurement processes. • The value of working in different types of organizations. • Challenges that come with the growth of an organization or department. • An e-Government program that was drastically accelerated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. • Two main reasons that people will sign up for the Estonian e-Residency program. • The percentage of new businesses in Estonia over the past 3 years that are owned by e-Residents. • How the government is going to determine whether or not the e-Residency program is beneficial to Estonia. • Technology that underpins key public infrastructure in Estonia. • Countries which are following in Estonia's footsteps, and how Lauri feels about this. • Lauri shares his opinion on the work being done by Propsera. • How being an EU member affects Estonia's e-Residency program.

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes What better time to talk about Clemson football than right now? The Tigers have gotten off to an unaccustomed rocky start and all signs point to some issues on offense. Special guest Sam Neumann of The Clemson Insider joins us on our new mid-week ACC Nation to take a look back at last week and and what lays ahead. We get right to it with an analysis of the offense. What's right? What's wrong? What can be fixed? Is it just a matter of time and some minor adjustments or are there bigger questions in play? Will the fans have the patience?

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes After two weeks of college football there are lots of questions about Florida State football. Curt Weiler of the Tallahassee Democrat joins us on ACC Nation Podcast to provide some answers and insight into the program. We start with an amazing effort against Notre Dame. Stumble through Jacksonville State. Then look ahead at what games on the schedule that hold promise. For fans questioning Mike Norvell and what he brings to the program here's a taste of sanity that might help deliver a clearer picture than what you've been seeing on some Message Boards. Jim and Will get some lowdown on injuries, poor choices and take a look into the proverbial crystal ball with Weiler to see what lays ahead for Florida State football. Listen 24/7 To ACC Nation Radio. At Home, On The Road Or At Work. Is this a better program than what was in place before it? Weiler thinks it is and that Norvell brings some promising recruits and transfers to the the table. He also thinks the program can't afford anymore losses of a nature like that against Jacksonville State which will upset the recruiting apple cart. It's a tricky balancing act. DONATE Florida State Football A win against Wake Forest is almost a must this week as the majority of the schedule will be challenging. Can the Noles make it to a bowl this year?

On this episode of the Welcome to the Metaverse podcast, myself and awesome digital artist Sean Elliott OC piece together the clues so far relating to RTFKT Studios' upcoming AKIRA avatar NFT project. RTFKT Studios have quickly established themselves as one of the most credible and innovative brands in the space, setting the tone and culture for digital fashion in the metaverse. The three co-founders (Benoit, Steven and Chris) have deep roots in gaming, streetwear and sneaker culture and are super credible, long term thinkers. If their work and releases to date are anything to go by, AKIRA looks set to completely change the game once again. ======================= To be clear neither myself or Sean are affiliated with RTFKT Studios, we both are just supporters of the work they have done so far.

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes Aside from a few glimmers of hope the debut of ACC football was a weak one. Among the disappointments there were also some positives. In fact, more than imagined. Yes, there were a couple of performances that shattered the illusions (delusions?) of some fan bases. Jim and Will gladly share their thoughts on the opening round of college football across the conference. There's the need for multiple Missouri moments moving forward as everyone takes stock of their team's efforts. Several wins and losses are quite as clear as imagined. As for the positive takes, we've got a lot and we have one rule of thumb to go by following week one. It's only one game. We'll know who these teams are in a few more weeks so have some patience. In addition to football we run down some of the latest sports news for soccer, field hockey, cross country and tennis. We'll have the latest polls for each of these sports elsewhere on this site. DONATE Weak One Coming up on the next ACC Nation Podcast our special guest is Curt Weiler of the Tallahassee Democrat. We'll dig into what Mike Norvell has going on at Florida State after a great debut against Notre Dame. Can they keep that momentum going?

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes There's a certain air of optimism around Georgia Tech football in Geoff Collins' third year. With a quarterback that is a blink away from reaching the next level, a stable of running backs that are dual threats and finally some beefy linemen perhaps it's warranted. We'll find out what's happening with the Yellow Jackets this season with our special guest Kelly Quinlan, the Publisher of Jackets Online on this episode of ACC Nation Podcast. You can also listen to the interview on ACC Nation Radio or watch it on YouTube. Is this the year the team finally turns the corner. There were signs of it last year amidst the madness of COVID when lack of training and quarantined players hampered all of college football. Things are definitely different this year. You can hear the confidence in the voices of the players and coaches. It's become infectious among many fans and has crept into the media coverage as well. Is this a better team? Certainly it's different than what Collins found when he took over from Paul Johnson. It takes time to re-build a team and Collins is going into the magic three year mark where many expect, nay, demand results. Top Overrated And Underrated ACC College Football Teams Georgia Tech Football Will and Jim dig into the offensive side of the ball with a look at quarterback and running back. Quinlan reveals that Jeff Sims is no longer a freshman trying to keep his head above water. No, Sims is iron forged in fire and he's got plenty of heat to share including that of Jahmyr Gibbs who is a dual threat that can leave defenders in the dust. The line has improved and are no longer the undersized and outclassed group that struggled to hold off hungry defenders. This group is capable of giving both Sims and Gibbs both time and space to put points on the board. DONATE Where are the weak spots? Perhaps on defense but that remains to be seen how this team clicks. We'll get a good look at them when they face off with North Illinois in their opener.

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes If you want the bigger picture, especially when it comes to college football, you have to talk to someone who covers it nationally. That's just what we did with our special guest this week, Bill Bender of Sporting News. We were fortunate enough to squeeze him in with his tight schedule. He promised to come back for a more detailed interview in the future. Bender gives us his thoughts on realignment, alliances, NIL, the top teams and teams to keep an eye on from all of the Power 5 conferences. Plus, as always we sneak in a question about his favorite food. After having lived in Charlotte for a few years you probably won't be too surprised by the answer. The changing face of college sports leaves us with the conclusion this isn't our father's game of football any longer. A new generation with new wants and needs will re-shape things for the future. Are super conferences part of that grand scheme? Bender has some thoughts on that and what it might mean as we go forward. DONATE Bill Bender What might transpire if an alliance is formed between the PAC 12, Big Ten and ACC? There may be some schools missing from the equation. Where will they go if a new super conference doesn't include them? Is it all about football? How does basketball fit in? We have some interesting questions regarding each of the conferences and Bender has some very intriguing answers. There's definitely plenty of food for thought on this episode of ACC Nation.

In addition to Quinlan, we'll have more interviews focusing on ACC football plus we'll dip into basketball, soccer, volleyball and more as the sports season gets underway.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes The Publisher of Wake Up, Conor O'Neill joins us on ACC Nation Podcast this week to talk about Wake Forest football and biscuits. That's right, biscuits and where he thinks you can find the best morning combos. O'Neill provides a great breakdown on one of the teams that we think will be a surprise this season. In eight seasons as head coach, Dave Clawson has taken the Demon Deacons to five consecutive bowls. Will he make it six? That may depend on one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the ACC. Sam Hartman can begin writing his ticket to the NFL with a solid year and Clawson has provided him with all of the offensive weapons he'll need to shine. When Wake Forest fans turn to CBS it won't be the network. Christian Beal-Smith returns to power up the running game. Last year Beal-Smith turned more than a few heads when he put up over 100 yards against North Carolina, Virginia, NC State and Virginia Tech. He'll be joined by Michigan transfer Christian Turner and Justice Ellison. Who's Up Next? Find Out With ACC Nation Radio The receiving corps is loaded but who steps up to be a leader this year? Clawson thinks it's one of the best he's seen in a while. One of the keys to making an offense tick is the offensive line. O'Neill calls a time-out and straightens us out on having five starters return. The next man up features two players with interesting side stories that he shares. DONATE Wake Forest Football Boogie Basham is in the NFL and though there may not be the same splash at the position the two ends will deliver consistency. The defensive line has 7 players with starting experience and there are two transfers. The linebacking corps may only have two starters coming back but the level of experience overall may have ticked up a notch. If you're looking for lots of improvement then look no further than the DB's. Eight starting experience players are back. O'Neill looks at the schedule and gives us his impressions of how those games may play out. The end of the season could be a rough and tumble run on the road but with minimal injuries the team should have a load of confidence going up against North Carolina, Clemson and Boston College. https://youtu.be/uCaPCd2RDG0 Be sure to watch the interview with Conor O'Neill and others on YouTube.

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes There's a lot going on in Virginia sports these days and The Daily Progress' Bennett Conlin stops by to talk about some of it. Football, basketball, ACC media days, conference realignments, Olympics, a shared dislike of the Pack and of course, food and drink. Breaking a bit from tradition we start off with Conlin's favorite digs around Charlottesville and other ACC school towns. With long and sometimes weird hours a person has to eat and have a drink once in awhile. Take out your notepad especially if you're building your bucket list of restaurants to check out. The insanity of conference realignment and how that may impact the ACC. Conlin shares his thoughts on teams he thinks make the most sense in adding and what they'll bring to the table. As a James Madison grad he tosses in some thoughts on how JMU can take advantage of all the changes as well. DONATE When it comes to an overload of information the ACC media days (football in this case) exposes you to all of the teams in the conference in addition to multiple coaches and players. To top it all off you hear from ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips just as the realignment story is breaking so you get a feel for what may or may not be happening behind the scenes. The Latest Interviews And Sports News On ACC Nation Radio Bennett Conlin What does a new season hold in store for Wahoo football fans? There are mixed messages in every direction but the potential is such that there is a feeling Virginia may be somewhat of a surprise. Portions of the team are flying under the radar and Brennan Armstrong's talents are under appreciated. Can Bronco Mendenhall get the most out of his team in the fall? When you're talking about Virginia you can't simply over look the men's basketball team. We didn't and Conlin answers some key questions regarding offense playmakers and what they'll need to do this season.

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes Does the recent spate of conference realignment talk have you confused? You're not the only one. That's why we invited Matt Zemek, the Editor of USA Today's Trojans Wire and a twenty-year veteran of covering college football to join us on ACC Nation Podcast. We couldn't have asked for a better guest to help explain why Texas and Oklahoma are unhappy with the Big 12. Zemek lays out how this may impact other college conferences and significantly change the landscape. From the PAC 12 to the ACC and everything in-between you should probably expect a shift in teams in more than one place. We asked Zemek who he thought might be good additions to the ACC should the conference go in that direction. Find out his picks and see if you agree. Zemek doesn't hold back when it comes to the job that commissioners (past and present) are doing for their conferences. Who does he think is the best among the Power 5? What are his thoughts on Notre Dame sticking with the ACC or leaving for the Big 10? There's a lot on the the menu in this special episode.

The Louisville catcher caught everyone off guard by being the top pick in the MLB Draft. We have a look at the players coming out of the ACC and three high school players that were drafted high that will have an impact on conference recruiting rosters. If you have Comcast Xfinity there is some hope that you'll be watching football on the ACC Network by September at least according to commissioner Jim Phillips. Who are the top draft prospects for the NBA coming out of the ACC? Florida State, Duke and Virginia contribute to the Top 30 list. We take a look at the CBS Sports Top 100 and find that all of the conference players are moving up in value. DONATE What would a mid-summer podcast be without a look at football?

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes You could use a million and one phrases, like, the rubber meets the road but when it all comes down to the nuts and bolts, it better be bat meet ball. NC State and Virginia have ventured into the College World Series (CWS) through slightly different paths but both teams are nothing short of scrappy when it comes to their wins. Will and Jim take a look at some ACC sports news first and then dive head first into how the conference has performed in post-season baseball action. Two ACC performers came away with gold during the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Virginia's Michaela Meyers and NC State's Elly Henes delivered in the 800M and 5KM. There's an interesting side note to the Henes win that we share with you on the show. Florida State had a great softball season but unfortunately they came up short against top-ranked Oklahoma in the WCWS. The Seminoles return a young but experienced squad next season.

The Irish couldn't muster enough to take the final game of the three-game series with Mississippi State and clinch a Super Regional spot. NC State captured the first spot in Bracket 1 of the CWS among conference teams. Later in the day Virginia fought back against a tenacious Dallas Baptist to make their way into Bracket 2.

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes The prestigious British Medical Journal recently published a study that got little attention from Mainstream Media, probably because it wasn't about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The study showed that four dietary supplements significantly reduce COVID-19 infection risk. Using an app developed by Zoe Global, in partnership with King's College London, Massachusetts General Hospital, Lund University, Sweden, and Uppsala University, Sweden, researchers reviewed data from more than 400,000 users. To summarize their findings: In the largest observational study on SARS-CoV-2 infection and dietary supplement use to date on over 400,000 app users from three different countries, we show a significant association between users of omega-3 fatty acid, probiotic, multivitamin or vitamin D supplements and lower risk of testing positive for infection with SARS-CoV-2.Louca P, et al. Interestingly, supplement use seemed to be more effective in women than men in relation to COVID-19. What makes these supplements especially effective? Vitamin D One of the many health benefits of vitamin D is its impact on the immune system. Health care providers have known for decades that low vitamin D levels increase the risk of the flu and other infections. Vitamin D affects the function of T cells and B cells. It's no surprise, then, that low vitamin D levels could increase the risk of COVID-19. In the BMJ study, vitamin D supplementation lowered COVID-19 risk by 9% for United Kingdom participants and by 24% for those in the United States. Another new study, published in The Lancet, also affirmed the protective effects of vitamin D supplementation. In summary, this updated meta-analysis of data from RCTs of vitamin D supplementation for the prevention of ARIs showed a significant overall protective effect of this intervention compared with a placebo control.Joliffe DA, et al. Multivitamins Though I'm a major advocate for multivitamin use, health care practitioners often question the health benefits of multivitamins. Because they include multiple ingredients, and the supplement market includes a wide range of qualities, the research on multivitamins isn't as in-depth as that of the individual ingredients. However, there's no doubt that most people don't get enough of most micronutrients for optimal health. Any micronutrient deficiency has the potential to interfere with immune function, but inadequate zinc, or vitamins A, C, D, and E can all increase the risk of viral infection. In the BMJ study, multivitamin use lowered COVID-19 infection risk by 13% for those in the U.K., and 12% for those in the U.S. Read also: The Best Multivitamins for Men and Women. Omega-3 Fatty Acids (Fish Oil) You might be surprised to see fish oil included in this list. When most people think of fish oil health benefits, they think of heart health, fat loss, brain function, and possibly muscle growth. Omega-3 fatty acids help support a normal inflammatory response, and inflammation plays a significant role in the immune process. That said, it's unclear exactly how fish oil reduces SARS-CoV-2 infection, but it does. The data from the BMJ shows fish oil supplementation lowers COVID-19 risk in the United States by 21% and in the United Kingdom by 12%. Probiotics It's often said that “70% of your immune system lies in your gut.” Whether that's an accurate percentage or not, the point is that your gut health plays a crucial role in immune function. That doesn't mean your gut only protects you from pathogens that reach your gut. In reality, the bacteria in your intestines produce metabolites and other compounds that enhance immune function throughout the body. In fact, research shows that the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut impacts the function of immune cells even in the lungs. Alveolar macrophages act as patrols in the lung tissues,
This episode of The Real Estate Sales podcast features Jimmy’s explanation of how he listed $11 million worth of listings within nine months. How’d he do it? By sending unsolicited video CMAs. This unique expired listing strategy generates sales and is an easy but effective tactic that increases your value down the line. Why is this method so effective? What’s the main market trend of 2021? There’s a lack of inventory (AKA houses.) Because of this volatility, prices are accelerating so quickly, nobody has any clue how much their property costs. Ipso facto, sending unsolicited evaluations is the information nugget nobody in your contacts knew they needed. (But they really did.) Jimmy’ s unsolicited video CMA strategy: Target people thinking about selling their home within the next couple years, people you’ve sold to in the past, or really anybody you know who’s a homeowner. Using a screen recording platform, record a 5-10 minute walkthrough showing how you arrived at your evaluation. Make sure to include a hard number evaluation estimate, but with the disclaimer that you can be much more accurate with a full house tour later on. What’s on Jimmy’s browser? Have a few things pulled up into your internet browser Google earth with the address (it makes you look fancy) If you time it right, Google will zoom into their listing right when you start, which is pretty cool Tab open from the local MLS that has a list of sole comparable properties. CMA - take that data and break it town into the best ¾ sales that suggest what their house might be worth. Estimated seller net sheet - document that includes total costs and sale Include a hard number of what their total takeaway could be! Recording it Jimmy uses bombbomb It starts a gif of the video directly in the email. (cost) it also lets you know the target person opened it Alt- record a party of 1 from zoom and upload to youtube (free) This strategy has a tail that other strategies don’t offer. This offers these people a simple yet impactful method to know their value, and keeps you at the top of mind. Just do one a day, it’ll be amazing how much business you do on the listing size.

On today’s podcast: Volkswagen ID 4 GTX is performance EV flagship Volkswagen ID.5 teased Skoda starts Enyaq deliveries in Norway GM Ultium Charge 360 Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E to pace NASCAR Talladega Cup Series race Tesla’s head of UI departs Hyundai Kona Electric discontinued in Korea Third VW Plant In China Under Construction Show #1066 Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Thursday 29th April. 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. VOLKSWAGEN ID 4 GTX IS PERFORMANCE EV FLAGSHIP "The GTX’s powertrain comprises a 201bhp permanent magnet synchro machine (PSM) on the rear axle, and an asychronous motor (ASM) on the front axle. The two motors combine for 295bhp, although Volkswagen has yet to confirm the torque output. The system can power the ID 4 GTX from rest to 62mph in 6.2sec, with top speed limited to 112mph. When it goes on sale, the range-topping version of the electric SUV will be the first ID model to use the new GTX badge" says Autocar: "While the GTI line is centred around the Golf, Volkswagen has chosen to use the ID 4 for the first GTX model because of both the growing importance of the SUV market and the decision to use a twin-motor powertrain, which the smaller ID 3 hatch is unable to accommodate." "The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX is on sale in Germany now priced from €50,415 (around £43,500), although that includes a €7,500 subsidy from the German government. Under normal driving conditions, the ID.4 GTX is propelled by the rear electric motor alone. However, when the car recognises a loss of traction or a demand for more power through the accelerator, it activates the front motor to keep the SUV planted or accelerating as fast as it can. " reports AutoExpress: "To support the more powerful electric motors, the ID.4 GTX is available with an optional Sports package, which adds lowered sports suspension and progressive steering - the latter altering the steering ratio according to the amount of steering lock applied. Volkswagen’s optional Sports Plus package builds on this further with adaptive dampers. To mark it out as the performance model it gets a new front bumper with LED-backlit intakes, a sporty rear diffuser and 20-inch alloy wheels. Matrix LED headlights also come as standard, along with dynamic indicators and a two-tone paint finish. Larger 21-inch alloys are offered as an option." "Power is drawn from a 77kWh battery pack that sits underneath the cabin floor, and is capable of up to 125kW charging from rapid chargers. Estimated range on the WLTP cycle is rated at 297 miles – a drop of only around 17 miles compared to a standard 77kWh ID.4. VW hasn’t released kerb weights as yet, but thanks to the extra hardware on board expect a jump on a standard ID.4’s 2124kg figure, likely making this ‘electric GTI’ a 2200kg-plus proposition. " says the performance mag evo: "In reality, a 2.2 ton ID.4 is not the GTX we’re particularly interested in, but when Volkswagen (or likely Cupra) decides to drop this powertrain into something a little smaller and lighter, we’ll start taking notice of the ‘electric GTI’ connection VW is so determined to establish." "The GTX name will be used on more upcoming all-electric ID models in Europe. The AWD version coming to the US later this year might not carry the GTX designation but will have similar technical specifications. When the driver hits the brake pedal, the rear motor is responsible for decelerating the EV while recovering energy. The front motor can recover energy in some situations. The rear motor can brake up to a deceleration rate of about 0.3g, after that, the hydraulic brakes kick in. In the D drive mode, energy regeneration only happens when the brake pedal is applied. However, when in the B (Brake) drive mode, power regeneration starts when the driver lifts off the accelerator pedal." says InsideEVs. The U.S. EPA range is 250 miles for RWD. "Standard features in the ID.4 GTX include a 30-color ambient lighting system, a heated leather steering wheel, leatherette seating with red stitching, a 5.3-inch driver's display, a 10-inch center touchscreen, the Hello ID voice assistant, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. Optional features offered in various packages include a 12-inch center touchscreen, an augmented reality head-up display, a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control, and the Travel Assist driver-assistance system." And we couldn't get to the end without a comparison with the cars which still, for many, define the EV segment. According to Car & Driver: "Claimed performance is, frankly, underwhelming by segment standards. Volkswagen's promise of a 6.2-second zero-to-62-mph time translates to GTI-level acceleration but looks leisurely by segment standards, delivering on our prediction that Volkswagen's fastest EV will be slower than the cheapest and least powerful Tesla." https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-2021-volkswagen-id-4-gtx-performance-ev-flagship https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/354855/new-hot-electric-volkswagen-id4-gtx-launched-295bhp https://insideevs.com/news/503979/volkswagen-id-4-gtx-electric/ https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a36275982/vw-id4-gtx-revealed/ VOLKSWAGEN ID.5 TEASED "Recently, during the presentation of the ID.4 GTX, came the first major showing of the ID.5 and the confirmation of a GTX version of it. This is the latest vehicle to ride on VW's MEB platform for EVs but with a sleeker roof than on the ID.4.The front of the ID.5 is nearly identical to the ID.4, and the flanks are similar. The major change is the roof's distinct arch, whereas the ID.4 is a bit more angular. The design differences between them are not very significant." says Motor1: "The two models likely share the same powertrains." SKODA STARTS ENYAQ DELIVERIES IN NORWAY "Škoda has started deliveries of its electric model Enyaq iV. The first model was delivered to a family in Norway. After the start of deliveries in the Scandinavian markets, Western and Central Europe are to follow from May and June 2021." says electrive: " the Enyaq iV 60 and 80 variants were available with rear-wheel drive – i.e. with 58 kWh or 77 kWh battery capacity. In the meantime, the basic Enyaq iV 50 model with a 52 kWh battery can also be ordered. The two all-wheel-drive models are not yet available." UK pricing starts at £31,085 and UK deliveries start in a few weeks. https://www.electrive.com/2021/04/28/skoda-starts-enyaq-deliveries-in-norway/ GM ULTIUM CHARGE 360 "Much like Ford does with its FordPass network, the Ultium Charge 360 will integrate GM’s own vehicle apps and software with a variety of third-party charging services, such as Blink, ChargePoint, EVgo, Flo, Greenlots, and SemaConnect. The goal is to create a seamless experience in which an owner of a GM electric vehicle can drive up to a station, plug in, and start charging without having to juggle multiple apps or third-party memberships." says The Verge: " lot will depend on the level of service provided by these various charging services, an aspect that GM will have little control over. EV charging in the US is a bit of a mess, with broken chargers, fraying cables, and unreliable maps. While GM can’t solve some of the more intractable problems, it says it’s doing what it can to make charging a little less of a headache. GM wouldn’t say whether its forthcoming EVs would include Plug and Charge capabilities, a new technology standard that allows a much simpler way to charge your car." https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/28/22407789/gm-ev-charging-general-motors-ultium-charge-360 ELECTRIC FORD MUSTANG MACH-E TO PACE NASCAR TALLADEGA CUP SERIES RACE "The Ford Mustang-Mach E is hitting the track. The all-electric utility vehicle will serve as the pace car for the NASCAR Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, April. 25." says Fox NEws: "Ford's electric cars have come a long way in the past decade. While the Focus had a range of 115 miles per charge, the Mach-E is available in a version that can cover 305 miles between stops." https://www.foxnews.com/auto/electric-ford-mustang-mach-e-nascar-talladega-cup-series TESLA’S HEAD OF UI DEPARTS "Tesla’s longtime head of user interface design has left the company, and he has published some images of previously unreleased UI design for the Cybertruck and Full Self-Driving software in the process. These designs were seen partially in the Cybertruck launch but never so clearly…" says Fred at eelectreK: "According to his LInkedin profile, Pietryka left Tesla last month to create his own design firm called Moderne Grafik Anstalt. Pietryka has been replaced as head of UI design at Tesla by Ben Cunningham, who came to Tesla last year from Facebook. As part of Pietryka’s portfolio on his new firm’s website, the designer shared some images of his designs at Tesla." https://electrek.co/2021/04/28/tesla-head-ui-leaves-leaks-unreleased-cybertruck-fsd-images/ HYUNDAI KONA ELECTRIC DISCONTINUED IN KOREA "There've been whispers about an uncertain future for the Hyundai Kona Electric, and on Wednesday we learned it's going away in the automaker's home country of Korea. The country's Yonhap News Agency first reported Hyundai will discontinue the Kona Electric locally as recalls for battery fires continue. The company will instead focus on the Ioniq 5 as its flagship EV for now." sayas CNET: "Hyundai recently revealed a refreshed model with new looks but an identical powertrain, set to go on sale soon in both Europe and the US. Korea, however, will have to deal with whatever models remain at dealership lots." https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/hyundai-kona-electric-discontinued-battery-fire-recalls/ THIRD VW PLANT IN CHINA UNDER CONSTRUCTION Volkswagen Group China has begun construction of an all-new MEB plant at Volkswagen Anhui recently. As the third of the Group’s pure-electric vehicle manufacturing facilities in China, following completion of the Anting (SAIC VW) and Foshan (FAW-VW) plants, the Volkswagen Anhui plant will be powered by green energy from day one. Due for completion mid-2022, the plant is set for start of production in the second half of 2023. The plant is another cornerstone of Volkswagen’s global e-mobility push. By 2025, Volkswagen Group China plans to deliver up to 1.5 million new energy vehicles (NEVs) per year.

Exciting news! This Tuesday, May 4th, we will be doing a live podcast recording with Mappy Hour. Register below!PlanetGeo Mappy Hour Live Recording - Glacier National ParkToday we talk Earthquakes! The list of EQ dating back to antiquity is shocking. The amplitude and deaths caused are estimated, but a glimpse of this list is very sobering. Below is a list of some of the important and more recent.Medieval Europe (italy, spain, portugal) were all very aware of the risks of Earthquakes and were starting to apply new engineering specifically for earthquake mitigation (anchor plates in buildings, exaggerated buttresses). 1700: The Cascadia subduction zone. Research by Brain Atwater has revealed when this EQ occurred. Estimated to be 8.7 - 9.2 moment magnitude. Atwater has discovered ghost forests of red cedars that were killed by being lowered and submerged in salt water as a result of a massive EQ. The tree rings date back to 1699 - the last growing season before the EQ. Records in Japan confirm a tsunami that caught them offguard. The research by Atwater is so cool and worth going into here. He has really changed the way we think about the Cascadia zone and that it knocks off a major quake every ~ 500 years.December, 1811 to February 1812: 3 large EQ in New Madrid, MO 8.1,7.8 8.0. Caused by old stress from a failed rift zone.1906: San Francisco EQ 7.91964: The Great Alaskan EQ. 9.2 the shaking lasted 4 min and 38 seconds. The Richter scale put these two as the same strength. 1976: China. 7.6 EQ that unlike the year before, no foreshocks or warnings. Estimated up to 750,000 people died.2004: Sumatra 9.1 227,000 people died2009: L’Aquila, italy, 5.8, 309 people died; Italian seismologist went on trial for incorrectly reassuring the population that no earthquake would occur. Earthquake was predicted by one researcher a month before, he was called alarmist. Then the earthquake occurred and 7 people (6 scientists and one official) were convicted of giving false or misleading statements that downplayed the risks. This result was criticized by most major scientific organizations and outlets. These verdicts were later overturned by the Italian Supreme Court 20142011: Japan 9.0 Almost 21,000 people diedIt’s also appropriate to talk about the exponential scale. The richter scale is outdated and really measures the amplitude and distance the waves travelled. It’s not accurate in discerning major EQ. The moment magnitude scale measures the amount of movement along a fault and the force required to make that movement. It also measures all of the seismic waves produced by an EQ.The scales vary logarithmically. In terms of the amount of ground shaking, a difference of 1 varies by an exponent of 10. But in terms of energy released, it varies by powers of 30 (We round to 30. It’s actually 31.6. That means that for each increase in .2, the energy released is doubled) Why do Earthquakes occur?1 - Think back to the plate tectonics episode. The movement of tectonic plates causes stress along the plate boundaries. Use N. America as a starting point (more on the west coast, few on the east coast) but then we compare them to other countries like Germany and the UK (which have very few) Italy (lots of earthquakes with >10,000 killed) and western Pacific (same). —————————————————— Instagram: @planetgeocast Twitter: @planetgeocast Facebook: @planetgeocast Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ_A82nOMu0nIvZto6zMPqgEmail: planetg
