Highlights:     “I'm finding that even someone like Ted Cruz, who's otherwise quite the formidable debater, even he seemed ill-equipped to answer the charge that the US is the only nation on the planet that has mass shootings.”“It may surprise you, the worst incidents of mass public shootings have been in South Asia, Europe, and Africa .”“This study (by John R. Lott, President of the Crime Prevention Research Center) has patiently and soberly analyzed the global data, and found that the United States, whether we like it or not, is responsible for only 2.2% of mass public shootings around the world and even less so, it's responsible for just 1.5% of all deaths due to mass public shootings.”Timestamps:      [00:49] On the charge that the US is the only nation on the planet that has mass shootings[03:22] A study by John R.

Boost Your NAD+ Levels — Healthy Ageing: Redefined Cellular Health Energy & Focus Bone Density Skin Elasticity DNA Repair Cardiovascular Health Brain Health  Metabolic Health Episode Highlights [02:32] Why Athletic Performance Drops as We Age The main cause of athletic performance decline is mitochondrial decline. Mitochondrial decline is linked to senescence cells.  Senescence cells stop dividing and do nothing. As we age, we may have 5-20% senescence cells in different tissues.  This causes inflammation and causes the mitochondria to function improperly, thus increasing reactive oxygen species within cells.  Nuclear DNA is usually packed in histones, which preserve genetic material. However, mitochondrial DNAs lack histones, making it prone to oxidative stress and mutations.    As we age, our epigenetic processes become less efficient; it becomes a vicious cycle with more reactive oxygen species and less capacity to deal with them.  [08:23] How Else Do Our Bodies Respond to Ageing Ageing declines autophagy, which recycles cellular organelles.  When there's nothing to clean up dysfunctional mitochondria, problems with energy generation arise. Athletes who have exercised intensely their whole life will have worn-off tissues and lactic acid buildup.  Remember, exercise is good, since we want some level of oxidative stress; however, we don't want more oxidative stress than what our body can cope with.  Lisa shares how running ultramarathons accelerated her ageing process, wear and tear, and inflammation.  [12:29] How to Support Autophagy and Athletic Performance?  Intermittent fasting is when people have a certain feeding window a day. After eating, mTOR switches off and AMPK is activated which allows for autophagy.   If you want to build muscle, Dr. Elena recommends eating after exercising so you can activate mTOR which helps with muscle growth.    You need to create a cycle going of mTOR and AMPK since autophagy recycles cells back into amino acids, which can help cells build new proteins.  Don't create a feeding window that's too narrow; you need to have enough fuel for your body. Eat chicken, meat, and foods rich in amino acids.  Make sure you're sleeping properly, as this can affect your muscle growth.  [18:30] Supplements to Support Autophagy and Longevity You can also support autophagy through supplements like berberine.  Dr. Elena recommends adding supplements to specifically target senescence cells. Senolytics help kill senescence cells while senomorphics modify the senescence cells.  Quercetin added with Vitamin C can help kill senescence cells. By itself, quercetin can produce toxic metabolites, so it needs Vitamin C to serve as an antioxidant.  She also recommends taking their quercetin product with NAC and acetylcysteine to boost glutathione, a potent antioxidant.  Quercetin has many benefits including anti-inflammatory properties, and can be used to combat cardiovascular disease, fight seasonal allergies, and can fight cancer.     [26:51] How to Take Quercetin Quercetin can be found naturally in fruits and vegetables like strawberries and onions.  If you've never taken compounds for their senescent action before, start by taking quercetin at 500 mg every day. After a month of taking it, check in on how you feel.  You can also implement detox protocols with a higher dosage of quercetin(around 2 - 2 ½ grams). If you want to implement this protocol, start with 5 days first.  Quercetin can be combined with 500mg of chlorella to boost the detoxifying reaction. People with kidney diseases should consult with a doctor before taking quercetin.   [32:43] How NMN Can Help Athletes  In addition to mitochondrial decline, athletes can experience loss of endurance and muscle loss as they age.  Dr. Elena recommends increasing your fasting window depending on your goals.  You want more oxygenation in your tissues to preserve endurance and muscle.  Dr. Elena offers an NMN product that can increase both endurance and prevent age-related muscle loss.    This can help increase insulin sensitivity, activating longevity genes and DNA repair.  [36:37] How to Optimise NMN  NMN functions optimally when it's attached to a methyl group. Unfortunately, our body's methylation process also declines with age.  NMN should be paired with TMG, as it is a rich methyl donor.  When you combine NMN, TMG, and quercetin, you'll optimise your performance and endurance. [39:11] Longevity is Your Biological Age, Not Your Chronological Age Many people over 40 are insulin resistant. Insulin resistance is a gateway to biological decline.  You can check your insulin resistance by checking your waist to hip ratio.  After the age of 40, it's much easier to experience hormonal dysfunction.  We need to make a conscious effort to improve our health. Ageing can cause issues to spiral if left uncontrolled.   [42:50] Be Careful With Your Food 80% of adults in the west are insulin resistant.  The food industry worsens the condition by offering so many processed carbohydrates.  Many people have false ideas about what a healthy diet is. You can't have too many carbohydrates and sugar, even if they're coming from fruits.  Cut down on carbohydrates, avoid processed foods, and take good oils.  [45:21] Start with the Basics Start with the basics. You don't need to add supplements immediately.  Just eat clean and good food. There's no such thing as a universal diet.  Taking cold showers in the morning can improve hormonal balance. You can start with just 10 seconds of cold exposure.  Manage your stress levels and make sure you move regularly.  You don't need to be perfect.  [50:47] How Some People Live to 100  There were two hypotheses surrounding centenarians: good habits and the absence of high-risk genes. However, some centenarians were found to have bad habits and mutations for Alzheimer's disease.  Centenarians have genes that mitigate risks from bad mutations. They also have low IGF 1 levels.  When people are young, IGF 1 can improve muscle and tissue growth, but it can be harmful when people grow older. Centenarians' genetic combination allowed for IGF to decrease as they grow older. Listen to the episode to learn more about how centenarians' hormonal processes are being regulated. Commit to regularly regulating and balancing your hormones. This process starts with clean food, caloric restriction, and exercise.     About Dr. Elena Dr. Elena Seranova is a scientist, serial entrepreneur, and business mentor.

Show #1479…(headline story). Stick around and we'll get you up to speed! Well…Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Thursday 26th May, my penultimate day of hosting the show. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! Watch Lucid Air Set New Hypermiling Record Of 687 Miles - The Lucid Air Dream Edition Range remains the world's longest-range production car, with an EPA rating of 520 miles (836 kilometers). - Tom Moloughney got remarkably close to that in the real world by covering 500 miles in the Lucid Air in InsideEVs' 70 mph range test. But how far can the electric luxury sedan go if the driver's only concern is range? - The plan was to drive the car at a constant 27 mph (43 km/h), switching drivers roughly every three hours. Any time the Lucid Air needed to stop or turn around, the driver would switch into neutral and coast before accelerating slowly back to 27 mph. - However, the vehicle did not manage to break the 700-mile threshold, with the 118-kWh battery running completely out of juice after 687.4 miles (1,106.2 kilometers). That was still good enough to qualify as a world record for the longest range achieved by production electric vehicle on public roads, but still a long way from the 999-mile Guinness World Record that includes prototypes on private tracks. Original Source : Watch Lucid Air Set New Hypermiling Record Of 687 Miles (insideevs.com) Harley-Davidson selling out its newest electric motorcycle in 18 minutes - When Harley-Davidson first unveiled its original LiveWire electric motorcycle and began taking orders nearly four years ago, the industry was largely in consensus about the bike itself. It scored impressive marks and high acclaim for performance and style, but its sales suffered due to the original lofty price of nearly $30,000 (though the price did drop to $22,000 after entering the LiveWire sub-brand). And so it's no surprise that ever since the original launch, significant hype has been building for Harley-Davidson's next lower-cost electric motorcycle.

This lecture was given on March 14, 2022 at Yale University. The handout for this lecture can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/u74wk4hb. For more information on upcoming events, please visit our website at www.thomisticinstitute.org. About the speaker: Carlos Eire, who received his PhD from Yale in 1979, specializes in the social, intellectual, religious, and cultural history of late medieval and early modern Europe, with a focus on both the Protestant and Catholic Reformations; the history of popular piety; and the history of the supernatural, and the history of death. Before joining the Yale faculty in 1996, he taught at St. John's University in Minnesota and the University of Virginia, and was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton for two years. He is the author of War Against the Idols: The Reformation of Worship From Erasmus to Calvin (1986); From Madrid to Purgatory: The Art and Craft of Dying in Sixteenth Century Spain (1995); A Very Brief History of Eternity (2010); Reformations: The Early Modern World (2016); and The Life of Saint Teresa of Avila: A Biography (2019). And he is co-author of Jews, Christians, Muslims: An Introduction to Monotheistic Religions (1997). He has also ventured into the twentieth century and the Cuban Revolution in the memoir Waiting for Snow in Havana (2003), which won the National Book Award in Nonfiction in the United States and has been translated into more than a dozen languages. His second memoir, Learning to Die in Miami (2010), explores the exile experience. A past president of the Society for Reformation Research, he is currently researching attitudes toward miracles in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His recent book Reformations won the R.R.Hawkins Prize for Best Book of the Year from the American Publishers Association, as well as the award for Best Book in the Humanities. It was also awarded the Jaroslav Pelikan Prize by Yale University Press. All of his books are banned in Cuba, where he has been proclaimed an enemy of the state – a distinction he regards as the highest of all honors.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Thursday, May 26th, 2022. Have you signed up for our upcoming conference in Knoxville TN? Early bird pricing will end before you know it, and by the way, if you’re a club member, you’ll get $100 off, so sign up now, at flfnetwork.com/knoxville2022 I want to start your day off with some positive news… Birth rates, went up last year, for the first time in nearly a decade. https://nypost.com/2022/05/25/us-birth-rates-increased-in-2021-for-the-first-time-in-7-years/ Couples seemed to have been busy during the pandemic… and it makes sense… what else is there to do when you’re forced to stay inside by a tyrannical government? For the first time in seven years, birth rates in the United States increased – albeit by only 1%. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics revealed there were 3,659,289 babies born in 2021, the first rise in births since 2014. Past years had seen a steady birth decrease of 2%, according to ABC News. The data comes after births dropped 4% — dubbed the “baby bust” — in 2020 during the pandemic. But now that society is bouncing back… if you can call it that… people are once again starting families. Mothers, ages 35 to 44, gave birth the most of any age group — with a nearly 3% increase — which comes after a trend of women hesitant about having children. In a state-by-state case, the Northeast region was amongst the boom of births. New Hampshire came out on top, with a 7% yearly birth-rate increase, trailed by Connecticut (6.5%), Vermont (5.2%) and New Jersey (5.09%). While only New Mexico saw a 1.9% percent fall and Hawaii only 1%, no other states saw a birth decrease greater than 1% from 2020 to 2021. While the CDC doesn’t list an explanation for the boom, some respondents in a Pew Research Center poll cited medical issues (19%) or not knowing the “state of the world” (9%) as reasons for not having more or any children. A New York University study released in September 2021 demonstrated a similar trend: Fewer women wanted children, all thanks to the pandemic… I’d also like to add that women this day and age, are being encouraged to pursue careers as opposed to becoming mothers… one of the most incredible miracles we witness in this day and age, is a woman’s ability to create life….. But then again, I’m no Biologist. In 2021, fertility rates were up. The number of live births per 1,000 women between 15 and 44 years of age was 56.6, an increase from 56 the year prior. While the total fertility rate was 1,663.5 births per 1,000 women, it still isn’t enough to reach “replacement levels,” or the level the population would need to essentially replace itself. According to ABC News, that number is 2,100 births per 1,000 women. Some more good news… teen pregnancies were down by 6%. Pregnancies amongst 15- to 17-year-olds decreased by 8% and those amongst ages 18 to 19 fell by 7%. Speaking of babies… More baby formula is heading to store shelves as early as this weekend https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/25/health/formula-supply/index.html From CNN, More baby formula is expected on store shelves as soon as this weekend through a variety of government efforts. On Wednesday, 60 tons of formula landed at Dulles International Airport in Washington from Ramstein Air Base in Germany, the second shipment from Europe as part of the Biden administration's Operation Fly Formula. That effort was started to address the nationwide shortage that was exacerbated by the closure of formula maker Abbott Nutrition's plant in February after several inspections by the US Food and Drug Administration found "insanitary conditions." Chris Calamari, who leads Abbott's nutrition division, apologized for his company's role in the shortage Wednesday at a hearing before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation. "On behalf of everyone at Abbott, I want to express our extraordinary disappointment about the shortage. We are deeply, deeply sorry," Calamari said. Oh that’s alright Calamari, while our economy has been floundering, it’s good to know that we still have the money to send $40 billion to Ukraine right? Abbott said Tuesday that it plans to restart work at its Sturgis, Michigan, plant on June 4, with the first batches of new formula expected to be available to consumers on or around June 20. When the plant is up and running, it will be able to increase capacity by 40%, according to Calamari. On Wednesday, Calamari outlined Abbott's additional plans to boost supply by bringing in more formula on nearly 50 flights a week to 12 airports across the country. Abbott has also converted some of its manufacturing facilities to make formula and is working with US Department of Agriculture WIC agencies to make sure program participants get formula for free, Calamari said. "By the end of June, we expect we will be supplying more formula to Americans than we were in January, before the recall," he said. More formula from companies made overseas is scheduled to arrive in the coming days, according to US Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. First lady Jill Biden and US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy were on hand to greet Wednesday's shipment. Home. It’s where you build your legacy.

United Airlines fires employee left bloodied after airport brawl with ex-NFL player Brendan Langley https://www.foxnews.com/sports/united-airlines-fires-employee-airport-brawl-nfl-brendan-langley The United Airlines worker that was left bloodied after getting into an altercation with former Denver Broncos cornerback Brendan Langley at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey last week has been fired, according to the airline. A United Airlines rep told the New York Post on Tuesday that the employee, who has not since been identified, was terminated by the company after a video surfaced on social media showing him involved in a physical altercation with Langley on May 19. A two-minute-long video posted to Twitter shows the two men exchanging blows. The employee appears to fall over a baggage check-in desk before standing up with a bloodied face. He again approaches Langley before other employees step in to separate the two. Now… I don’t know if you guys had seen the video, but I’ve left a link in the show notes, where you can watch it and decide for yourselves… when I look at it, it looks as though the airport employee is really agging the NFL player on… Airport fight between United agent and ex-NFL player passenger goes viral The airline released a statement Monday condemning the incident.

The poll found Biden’s approval rating fell 6 percentage points from a week earlier, and it dropped from 76 percent to 72 percent among Democrats in that same span. The low point for Biden in the Reuters poll came less than a week after he hit a new low in the Associated Press poll, which found the president’s approval rating sat at 39 percent. Both polls reflect a consistent trend of Biden’s approval rating mired in the high 30 percent to low 40 percent range in recent months. Voters have consistently given Biden poor marks on his handling of the economy, which aides argue is strong despite persistent concerns about inflation. When confronted with bad polls, the White House has insisted its agenda benefits the American people and that officials must do a better job communicating that.

After the Allies defeated Germany in WW2, high-ranking Nazis and collaborators lived in a long, strange twilight. The lucky ones were recruited by the Allies (such as Wernher von Braun and his rocket science team who built America's space program) but others either fled or tried to disappear back into German society.But many of the closest Nazi collaborators became scions of German industry. Today's guest is David De Jong, author of the book Nazi Billionaires: The Dark History of Germany's Wealthiest Dynasties. He investigated the secret alliances between Germany's richest modern business dynasties—many of which also have a large U.S. presence—and the Nazi Party during World War II. The tycoons, lauded by society today, seized Jewish businesses, procured slave laborers, and ramped up weapons production to equip Hitler's army as Europe burned around them. The brutal legacy of the dynasties that dominated Daimler-Benz, cofounded Allianz, and still control Porsche, Volkswagen, and BMW has remained hidden in plain sight.

The sudden surge of monkeypox cases outside Africa has alarmed public health authorities around the world. In Europe and North America it's the first time community transmission has been recorded among people with no links to west or central Africa. So what is happening? Ian Sample talks to virologist Oyewale Tomori about why monkeypox is flaring up, whether we should fear it, and what we can learn from countries such as Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which have been tackling this virus for decades.

This episode is brought to you by Sendlane.   The ideal for selling tins of fish-based meals came during a visit to Portugal and its sardine canneries, says Henry Lovejoy, Owner and Co-founder of Freshé Meals.   "Portugal is not that big, but we took 11 days and drove 2,000 miles, so we zigzagged the country about the size of Indiana and went to a dozen sardine canneries looking for the perfect sardine and the perfect cannery to work with," Henry says. "At the end of one meeting, they said, you have a little extra time. We have a new concept. We would love your feedback. And they brought out tins with sardines in them. But there was also olive oil and beans and spices and all in this easy, open serving tin. And we'd been looking for an opportunity."   The biggest challenge, Henry says, was overcoming people's perception of canned food.   "I grew up with lousy canned food in the supermarket," he says. "When you travel to Europe, there are some premium quality canned fish. It's a completely different culture."   A celebrity chef was hired, and work began on global recipes. Meals were tweaked over many months. The mission is to use 100 percent certified sustainable seafood. Work has already started next on shrimp recipes.   Henry offers this advice for other entrepreneurs pursuing opportunities.   "You have to follow your heart - if you don't have passion, you don't have energy," he says. "We've been doing this for 23 years now, and our commitment to sustainability is what keeps me coming into the office every day. "   In Part 2, Henry talks about:   * The inspiration behind Freshé Meals. * The misperceptions of canned food. * The sourcing of ingredients and how Freshé sticks to sustainable seafood. * Advice for other entrepreneurs. * A closer look at Freshé's current products. * Where to find Freshé's meals.   Join Ramon Vela and Henry Lovejoy as they break down the inside story on The Story of a Brand.   For more on Freshé Meals, visit: https://freshemeals.com/    Subscribe and Listen to the podcast on all major apps.

Why is that?   They over-invest in paid acquisition and under-invest in retention.   Luckily, Sendlane makes it easy to solve this problem. Sendlane is an E-Commerce Customer Experience Platform helping hundreds of DTC brands to tighten their existing customer relationships.   Sendlane automates personalized customer experiences through Welcome and Abandoned Cart workflows, SMS, Deep Data Integrations with Shopify and WooCommerce, multi-store functionality, and much more.   Plus, they don't stand for lazy customer support.

This episode is brought to you by Sendlane.   Providing a high-quality and fresh seafood meal in a tin for consumption at home - that's the goal of Freshé Meals, says owner and co-founder Henry Lovejoy.   "The majority of Americans eat their seafood when they're out," Henry says. "There is a fear factor in the U.S. with cooking fish and how to prepare it. And that's the solution that we're trying to bring with Freshé."   Henry says many vegetarians are adding fish to their diets these days. Freshé offers meals with a more international taste.   "We've got recipes from Morocco and Spain and France and Thailand and Italy, so you can go on an adventure as you eat the meals," he says. "And they're super portable. They're an easy-open dinner."   Freshé Meals are designed to be eaten on the go or at your home office, Henry says.   "Half of the meals eaten in the United States now or eaten on the road and alone, and people are eating five-plus meals a day, smaller meals," he says. "This fits that format for what people are looking for."   Henry says his love of seafood and the ocean goes back to his childhood.   "When I was a young boy, I couldn't wait for Sunday dinner to be over to go watch the Jacques Cousteau special every Sunday night," he says. "I was inspired by his shows and discovering the oceans are 72 percent of our planet, but we don't know what's going on out there or under the surface."   After college, Henry got involved in the seafood industry, exporting lobster to Europe and Asia. Visiting markets worldwide exposed Henry and his business partner/wife to sustainability issues.   In Part 1, Henry talks about:   * Gratitude toward the marine conversation community for helping to bring sustainable seafood to consumers. * The trend of adding seafood to the diet. * The convenience of the brand's meals include easy to eat while traveling. * His career journey and how he got involved with seafood sustainability. * The complexities of the global seafood industry.   Join Ramon Vela and Henry Lovejoy as they break down the inside story on The Story of a Brand.   For more on Freshé Meals, visit: https://freshemeals.com/    Subscribe and Listen to the podcast on all major apps.

Highlights:     “What kind of nation sends $40 billion to supposedly protect the most corrupt country in Europe but doesn't spend a dime on protecting our own kids? What kind of nation does that?” “These horrors happen because we are sick and no one exemplifies that sickness more than Democrats.”“I think you can see the pattern here. For Democrats, everything wrong in this nation is always someone else's fault. It's always you. It's not them; it's NEVER them. It's always you. You're the problem or Republicans are the problem, or pro-lifers, or racism, but never them.”“The left has become so cognitively incoherent, that it's becoming increasingly obvious to the vast majority of the population that they are frankly, for lack of a better term, sick. It's being widely recognized that Democrats have mutually exclusive talking points for every mass shooting.”“The sickening truth is that the Democratic Party consistently exploits the horrors of events like this for their political expedience.

Show #1478 Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Wednesday 25th May, and in case you missed it, Martyn is off on his holidays. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! First up, let's look at our headline story for the day. Modified Nissan Ariya To Drive From North To South Pole In 2023 - British adventurer and Guinness World Record holder Chris Ramsey will become the first person in automotive history to drive Pole to Pole in an all electric vehicle in a bid to raise awareness of the climate crisis and the role that electric cars can play in reducing our carbon footprint. - This will be the first time that any vehicle has driven from the Magnetic North Pole to the South Pole, and Ramsey believes it is the ideal way to highlight just what electric vehicles are capable of – even in the most extreme climates. - After nearly four years of planning, the Pole to Pole Expedition is scheduled to start in March 2023, covering 17,000 miles across 14 countries as the team make their way from the Magnetic North to the finish line at the South Pole. - In preparation for the brutal Arctic and Antarctic conditions, Ramsey's expedition Nissan Ariya e-4ORCE will be modified and equipped by Arctic Trucks, a renowned specialist in polar vehicles. They will also provide logistical support and expertise to help plan a safe and accessible route through the most remote and hostile environments on Earth. Original Source : The Expedition – Pole to Pole EV 2022 report rates the US on EV readiness - The transportation sector accounts for approximately 30% of carbon dioxide emissions in the US alone. As the United States and the rest of the world for that matter, continue to lean into the paradigm shift of BEV transportation, more and more countries, states, and their consumers must prepare. A new 2022 report from LeasePlan USA has measured a number of data factors and scored an EV readiness index for all of the US. - The index was based upon five factors: Favorable state legislation and incentives Percentage of EVs on the road Charger to vehicle ratio Charger availability Climate suitability for EVs  Original Source : 2022 report rates the US on EV readiness: How prepared is your state? - Electrek Polestar invests in extreme fast charging battery company StoreDot -Polestar makes first financial investment in another company; becomes shareholder in Israel-based extreme fast charging pioneer StoreDot - StoreDot is pioneering the development of silicon-dominant extreme fast charging batteries for electric vehicles. The Israel-based company aims to produce batteries for EVs capable of charging up to 160 km of range in just five minutes, by 2024. - As part of the strategic deal, Polestar is collaborating with StoreDot to explore adapting and applying their technology to proof-of-concept Polestar cars. Test cases already being  explored include customising StoreDot's cell technology for Polestar cars, to enable faster charging and improved circularity. - The new funding comes as part of StoreDot's Series D investment round. Polestar is joining an impressive list of the company's global investors and partners, including Daimler, BP, VinFast, Volvo, Ola Electric, Samsung, TDK and EVE Energy.

Parking lots will need to install four Level 2 chargers in order to meet the guidelines. Lots with fewer than 60 parking spaces will be exempt from the new fees. - In a report to the city council, the city staff said, “There would be an incentive to invest in EV charging to avoid the higher annual license fees.” That report estimated it would take gas station and parking lot owners about 8 years to recoup their investment in EV charging equipment. Business owners cited lack of space, lack of available electricity supply, and limited demand for EV chargers as concerns. - According to a city staff report supporting the initiative, it will cost about $135,000 for a gas station to install a DC fast charger. The report also estimates it will cost an average of $100,000 to install four Level 2 EV chargers. Once they are in compliance, the normal yearly business license fee will remain at $163 for parking lots and $263 for gas stations. Original Source : Vancouver Requires Gas Stations & Parking Lots Without EV Chargers To Pay $10,000 Per Year - CleanTechnica VW CEO Follows GM's Lead, Reiterating Goal To Overtake Tesla By 2025 - CNBC asked Diess why Tesla is so highly valued. More specifically, why are investors so willing to pay a massive premium for Tesla over other automakers. Diess explained that markets are "always about the future.” He added: “Tesla currently is in the lead when it comes to EVs, probably also it is the most digital car company already and they have some advantages. We are still aiming at keeping up and probably overtaking by 2025 when it comes to sales.” Original Source : VW CEO Follows GM's Lead, Reiterating Goal To Overtake Tesla By 2025 (insideevs.com)  Tesla Research Partner Publishes Details About 100-Year Battery - If you follow Tesla, you're probably aware of Jeff Dahn and his team of researchers at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. Dahn is the man responsible for the talk about a "million-mile" EV battery, which sounds fascinating, though perhaps not that out of reach. However, more recently, the team with ties to Tesla published a new paper about an energy-dense EV battery that could last 100 years. - Abstract or paper: ‘'NMC cells, particularly those balanced and charged to 3.8 V, show better coulombic efficiency, less capacity fade and higher energy density compared to LFP cells and are projected to yield lifetimes approaching a century at 25 °C.''

Dubbed the 6.0 and 4.0, both e-bikes will have an impressive range of 340 kilometers, or around 211 miles. - The e-bikes are expected to be open for pre-order this summer, with deliveries expected to commence come 2023. As for battery tech, both the 6.0 and 4.0 will come with a 1,670 Wh battery. The buyer will have the option to purchase a 470 Wh extender, which will be necessary in order to achieve the claimed 211-mile range. As for power, it's stronger than most off-the-shelf e-bikes, too, with an 850W brushless electric motor as standard.  - To help riders keep tabs of their journeys, the OPIUM's e-bikes will come equipped with a digital display that shows trip data, route information, and other pertinent info such as battery charge.

Audi is also offering a special model limited to 520 for the market launch. - The Ingolstadt company will only offer the Q4 in China in the Q4 40 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron quattro variants. The 40 e-tron is powered by an electric motor in the rear with an output of 150 kW. The 50 e-tron quattro is a four-wheel drive with a maximum output of 220 kW. The top speed is also 160 km/h, just like in this country. - However, there is a difference with the battery. In Europe, the chemical storage unit has a usable energy content of 76.6 kWh. For the Chinese market, on the other hand, it has a capacity of 79.7 kWh, which, according to Chinese standards, should allow a range of up to 605 kilometres. The battery cells with the NCM 811 chemistry come from CATL. There are also differences in the charging time from 5 to 80 per cent: the Q4 40 e-tron takes 29 minutes and the Q4 50 e-tron quattro 36 minutes for the European versions. In China, however, both variants need a full 41 minutes for the charging process.
