Grocery stores are one of the biggest sales channels for wine. Curtis Mann, Group Vice President of Alcohol of the Albertson's Companies, gives us the inside scoop on buying trends, how to sell into Albertson's, and the rise of the use of digital. Learn about the dynamics of the grocery wine market and what makes Albertson's “locally great, nationally strong.”Don't forget - you can support the show on Patreon to help us keep bringing you great wine business content! Detailed Show Notes: Curtis' backgroundMBA at UC Davis in Wine Marketing and AccountingMarketing at Trinchero Family EstatesWorked in wine retail at a small placeMoved to IRI in category management in wine and spirits insightsWas Raley's wine buyer for 8 yearsGrocery as part of the wine marketMulti-outlet wine market ~$12-13B / yearTotal wine market ~$60-70B / year (multi-outlet ~20% of the total market)Albertson's Companies' wine overview~25 different grocery brands, ~2,000 storesWine is a key element of business - it drives sales and customer loyalty; some customers come to stores because of the wine selectionSome stores have up to 3,000 wine SKUsStores with more premium selections are correlated with location (high socio-economic demographics) vs. by grocery store brandFocus is more on the “premium” price segment ($9+ based on IRI)Top brands - Barefoot, Kendall Jackson, up-and-coming brands - Butter, Josh, but wine is very diversified. Big brands are still a small part of the marketPremiumization helping imports, including New Zealand Sauvignon BlancWine buying trendsConsumers are called to authenticity - they want to know what's in their wine, the appellation, sustainability, and organicConvenience - cans, seltzer, ready to drink Premiumization - $10-20/bottle, $30-50/bottle, up to $100/bottle (e.g., high-end Bordeaux, Napa Cabernet) ranges all doing well, some categories accelerating with potential out-of-stocksCovid trends - return to cooking, consumers go to Albertson's as a one-stop-shopWith restaurants reopening, a little bit of regression in sales, but still robust as cooking at home has been stickyCustomer demographics (for wine)Gen X / Baby Boomers - still buying a lot (more in bulk and volume), but less than beforeMillennials are the new customers - buying more, less loyal to wine vs. other drinks, and have less expendable income; their preferences are different from Gen X and Baby BoomersTo meet the changing demographics, Curtis looks forward 3-5 years to develop his shelf set/selections of wineConsiderable diversity of reasons people buy wine - occasion based purchasing (e.g., going to a party)Many people exploring and learning about wine (proof point - the massive increase in people taking WSET classes, including lots of consumers, not just professionals)Promotions / discountingLimited brand loyalty in wine, customers often default to priceGiven that, promotions are pretty importantWe need to work between price and product to optimize sales and not over-rely on priceWine selectionWhat does it mean to customers? Each wine must have a purpose vs. the other ~1,500 SKUs on the shelfThis could be style, story, or location/appellationWant to remove redundancy on the shelfTagline - ‘locally great, nationally strong'; try to give local stores more voice (e.g., Portland stores have more Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs)Flagship Stores (e.g., Andronico's, Pavilions) - higher-end, eclectic offeringsSteps to sell into Alberston's - have the 4 P's put together - distribution network, pricing, product, and where you fit on the shelfGenerally need to place wine 4-6 months in advanceIt requires a UPC code on the bottlePrivate Label / “Own Brand” winesThe goal is to provide the best price to value for customersThe intent is to drive loyaltyNot a dominant part of the businessTrying to create wines that are a draw and get good scoresSelection is built around education, desire to learn about wine category through own brandsSuppliers have connections to maintain supply, which can help Own Brands overcome supply challenges (e.g., 2020 Napa, 2021 New Zealand)Digital AdoptionVirtual tastings - have done well, 1,000s of people sign up, people buy the wines beforehand or buy wines later and watch the tasting on YouTubeAppeals to groups of customers who don't get to visit wine countryWill continue post-CovidDo education tastings 1x/monthKeys to engagement - consumers have lots of questionsThe team engages with customers via chatKeep it educational - need a balance of explaining concepts but keep it understandableConsumers using their phones more for education want to reduce the complexity of wineWine e-commerce - working on expanding this, challenging due to state regulationsExpanding drive up and go (“DOAG”)Delivery (e.g. - Instacart) growingStill a small portion of salesCore elements of success for the grocery channelThe selection keeps people in the storeRelating the wine to the food in the store (food - wine pairing)E-commerceConvenience (e.g., ready to drinks)

This means owners did not have the chance to experience an OTA update up until now. You see their excitement when they finally got one and we must say we are impressed this came in sooner than expected. It is not a big update by any means, but one meant to iron out some bugs here and there, just to make things smoother onboard the R1T and R1S. - The update procedure was documented by the user “Iwantatesla” in Rivian Forums, who also mentioned everything seems “much snappier” after the update. - the update covers things from Bluetooth connectivity to the improved Navigation app. Various user interface refinements were also on the menu, with smoother transitions between apps as well as improvements to the infotainment system's performance.

TẠP CHÍ VIỆT NAM
Việt Nam xây lò phản ứng mới để đáp ứng nhu cầu về chất phóng xạ

TẠP CHÍ VIỆT NAM

Sau cuộc hội đàm ngày 30/11/2021 tại Matxcơva giữa chủ tịch Việt Nam Nguyễn Xuân Phúc và tổng thống Nga Vladimir Putin, hai bên đã ra “Tuyên bố chung về Tầm nhìn quan hệ đối tác chiến lược toàn diện" giữa Việt Nam và Nga.Trong tuyên bố này, Hà Nội và Matxcơva cho biết sẽ tăng cường hợp tác sử dụng năng lượng hạt nhân “vào mục đích hòa bình”, trước hết trong khuôn khổ dự án xây dựng Trung tâm Nghiên cứu khoa học và Công nghệ hạt nhân tại Việt Nam, với sự trợ giúp của Nga. Theo lời Viện trưởng Viện Năng lượng Nguyên tử Việt Nam Trần Chí Thành tại hội nghị Khoa học và Công nghệ hạt nhân toàn quốc lần thứ 14 khai mạc ngày 9/12 tại Đà Lạt, Trung tâm Nghiên cứu khoa học và Công nghệ hạt nhân này sẽ có một lò phản ứng mới với công suất 10MWt, thay thế lò phản ứng hạt nhân Đà Lạt, vừa quá cũ vừa có công suất quá thấp.  Dự án được thực hiện trên cơ sở hiệp định giữa hai chính phủ Việt Nam và Nga về xây dựng Trung tâm Khoa học và Công nghệ hạt nhân trên lãnh thổ Việt Nam, ký ngày 21/11/2011. Tờ Vietnam Investment Review vào tháng 10 cho biết dự án này sẽ tiêu tốn 350 triệu đôla. Ngoài các lò phản ứng do Nga thiết kế, trung tâm còn có một cyclotron và các phòng thí nghiệm. Công ty Nhà nước của Nga Rosatom sẽ tham gia vào dự án, với mục tiêu hoàn tất việc xây dựng trung tâm vào cuối năm 2024.  Ông Trần Chí Thành cho biết, kể từ sau hội nghị lần thứ 13 tổ chức năm 2019, Viện Năng lượng Nguyên tử Việt Nam đã thực hiện các bước để triển khai Dự án Trung tâm Nghiên cứu khoa học công nghệ hạt nhân này. Hiện chưa biết là trung tâm sẽ được đặt ở đâu.  Lò phản ứng hạt nhân mới này trước hết là nhằm đáp ứng nhu cầu ngày càng tăng về chất phóng xạ ở Việt Nam, nhất là trong việc chẩn đoán và điều trị bệnh, theo lời giáo sư Phạm Duy Hiển, nguyên Viện trưởng Viện Nguyên tử Đà Lạt, trả lời RFI Việt ngữ ngày 28/12/2021:  " Việt Nam lâu nay vẫn có lò phản ứng hạt nhân ở Đà Lạt, cũng là lò nghiên cứu, nhưng lò này tuổi thọ cũng đã trên 60 năm kể từ ngày được Mỹ xây dựng. Công suất của nó thì rất thấp, thuộc loại lò phản ứng nhỏ trên thế giới, chỉ có 500 Kw, tức là 0,5 Mw. Nhu cầu về chất phóng xạ của Việt Nam thì ngày càng cao. Từ ngày có lò Đà Lạt, chỉ có hai nơi sử dụng chất phóng xạ trong bệnh viện để chẩn đoán và điều trị, đó là bệnh viện Chợ Rẫy ở Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh và bệnh viện Bạch Mai ở Hà Nội. Cả hai bệnh viện này chỉ sử dụng lượng phóng xạ là 2 Curie. Nhưng cho đến gần đây, cả nước có đến 39 trung tâm y học hạt nhân ở hầu hết các tỉnh thành sử dụng chất phóng xạ để chẩn đoán và điều trị bệnh. Lượng chất phóng xạ được sử dụng hiện nay lên đến gần 1.500 Curie. Nhu cầu sử dụng chất phóng xạ rất là cao và lượng chất phóng xạ sử dụng sẽ tăng hàng năm mười mấy phần trăm, trong khi đó mức tăng GDP của Việt Nam là trung bình là khoảng 5 hay 6 %. Do đó, hiện nay lò cũ ở Đà Lạt trước hết là không còn đáp ứng được nhu cầu về chất phóng xạ cho các bệnh viện. Đó là chưa kể còn nhiều ứng dụng khác của lò nghiên cứu mà lò ở Đà Lạt không làm được, cho nên cần phải có một lò có công suất mạnh hơn gấp 20 lần thì mới có thể bảo đảm được hoạt động của các trung tâm y học hạt nhân trên cả nước. Lý do thứ hai là chúng ta cũng cần rất nhiều nguồn phóng xạ dùng cho nhiều mục đích khác nhau. Việc chữa bệnh, hoạt động công nghiệp, các công trình công cộng đều cần những nguồn phóng xạ có hoạt độ cao mà lò phản ứng Đà Lạt không làm được. Lâu nay, chúng ta phải nhập các nguồn đó từ nước ngoài. Do những nhu cầu đó mà từ gần 10 năm nay, Việt Nam vẫn muốn có một lò phản ứng có công suất cao hơn. Trong khu vực châu Á, Nhật và Hàn Quốc đã có những lò phản ứng 10 Mw như thế, thậm chí cao hơn. Trung Quốc thì khỏi nói. Đó là những nước có thể tự làm ra các lò phản ứng. Ấn Độ từ lâu cũng đã có những lò phản ứng hàng chục Mw. Gần đây, khoảng mười năm, Úc có mua một lò mới 20Mw. Indonesia từ lâu cũng đã có lò 30 Mw. Với vị trí của Việt Nam và với dân số như thế, với nhu cầu tăng về chất phóng xạ, dĩ nhiên Việt Nam cần phải có một lò phản ứng mới" Cũng theo lời giáo sư Phạm Duy Hiển, ngoài y học hạt nhân, lò phản ứng nguyên tử mới còn có thể phục cho ngành sản xuất chất bán dẫn: " Lò mới còn làm nhiều việc khác nữa mà lò cũ không làm được, ví dụ hiện nay có nhu cầu rất lớn về chất bán dẫn công suất lớn để sử dụng trong xe điện, trong các nguồn năng lượng tái tạo và nhiều thứ khác. Cái đó cần phải có chất silicon công suất lớn, mà silicon công suất lớn đó phải pha tạp với chất phosphore. Người ta đưa các gương tinh thể silicon vào lò phản ứng. Neutron sẽ chiếu vào các tinh thể silicon, biến silic thành phosphore, gọi là quá trình pha tạp bằng neutron trên lò phản ứng. Chỉ có những lò phản ứng từ 10 Mw trở lên mới có thể làm được việc này. Nếu có lò này, Việt Nam sẽ có thể tham gia vào thị trường thế giới về việc tạo ra các chất silicon bán dẫn pha tạp trên lò phản ứng. Chúng ta không sản xuất các thỏi silicon đó. Có những nước chuyên môn sản xuất các linh kiện bán dẫn công suất lớn, như Nhật hay Hàn Quốc, nhưng ta có thể tham gia thị trường chiếu xạ cho họ." Mặc dù trung tâm nghiên cứu hạt nhân mới chủ yếu là nhằm để phát triển các phương pháp điều trị bằng phóng xạ, các chuyên gia cho rằng việc xây dựng một lò phản ứng như vậy có thể là một bước quan trọng tiến đến việc khởi động lại các dự án điện hạt nhân mà Việt Nam đã từ bỏ cách đây hơn 10 năm. Theo chiều hướng đó, trung tâm nghiên cứu hạt nhân mới sẽ là nơi lý tưởng đào tạo đội ngũ hạt nhân tương lai, như ghi nhận của giáo sư Phạm Duy Hiển: "Chúng tôi tính một trong những hướng sử dụng có thể mang lại hiệu quả kinh tế khá lớn cho Việt Nam và cũng đáp ứng những nhu cầu của thế giới. Nhưng điều quan trọng hơn hết là một nước như Việt Nam phải có một lò với công suất như thế để đào tạo một đội ngũ, nhằm bảo đảm lâu dài chiến lược sử dụng năng lượng hạt nhân, nếu không thì Việt Nam sẽ cực kỳ lạc hậu, sau này nếu như có những biến chuyển nào đó trên thế giới, mình sẽ không có những lực lượng để thích ứng những biến chuyển đó." Nhưng cho dù có đào tạo được một đội ngũ hạt nhân thì Việt Nam sẽ không thể tự mình xây dựng các nhà máy điện nguyên tử, mà phải cần đến sự trợ giúp của nước ngoài, mà nước đó hầu như chắc chắc sẽ là Nga, bởi vì “Tuyên bố chung về Tầm nhìn quan hệ đối tác chiến lược toàn diện" giữa Việt Nam và Nga, được công bố sau chuyến thăm Matxcơva của ông Nguyên Xuân Phúc có ghi rõ: " Trong trường hợp Việt Nam khôi phục kế hoạch phát triển năng lượng điện hạt nhân, Liên bang Nga sẽ được xem là đối tác ưu tiên trong lĩnh vực này."

2021.  A year with big expectations.  The re-opening of economies around the world with Covid vaccines in distributions instead led to fits and starts with the Delta and Omicron variants.  Wine pricing and costs went through gyrations with the tariffs between the EU and US imposed and then lifted and supply chain disruptions creating both cost and availability issues.  And clean and natural wines continued to become a broader topic amongst wine consumers and the trade who struggle with their definitions and impact.  XChateau assembled a panel across the wine value chain (Producer - Diana Snowden Seysses of Snowden Vineyard and Domaine Dujac;  Importer - Xavier Barlier of MMD; Distributor - Michael Papaleo of Banville Wine Merchants; Retailer - Kyle Meyer of The Wine Exchange; and Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW of The Wine Advocate) to discuss these issues and answer audience questions live on Clubhouse.  A wide-ranging and captivating conversation!Also, people have asked us how they can support the show.  So, we recently launched on  Patreon, where your contributions will help keep the wine business content flowing! Detailed Show Notes: Panelists: Producer perspective - Diana Snowden Seysses, winemaker at Snowden Vineyards in Napa & Domaine Dujac in BurgundyImporter perspective, Xavier Barlier, SVP of Marketing & Communications for Maison Marques & Domaines USA, the importation arm of Champagne Louis Roederer and related companiesDistributor perspective - Michael Papaleo, VP of Sales at Banville Wine Merchants, an importer and distributor focused on the New York, New Jersey, and Mid-Atlantic regionRetailer perspective - Kyle Meyer, Managing Partner of The Wine Exchange, a leader wine retailer in Orange County, CaliforniaWine Critic / Reviewer perspective - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Editor-in-Chief of Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate for the last 13 yearsTopic: Re-opening from CovidDiana - producers in Napa and France weren't required to close.

It's just a marketing fabricationNatural wine is a misleading term as well. It means different things to different peopleKyle - no one has asked for clean wine yetCustomer curiosity around natural wine, but people believe they are faulty wines (e.g., mercaptans, Brettanomyces)Wine merchants need to educate consumers around these topicsXavier - positive part of this trend is that it creates a conversation around wineDiana - need to educate consumers around sustainability. It's positive that people are worried about the climate and sustainability. If there's no definition of the term, it becomes greenwashingAudience Questions: Matthew - how do you best educate, communicate organic sources, and implement sustainable practices without greenwashing? Lisa - be very honest about what you're doingKyle - make them “a” point vs. “the” point, the wine should be “the” point, make the best wine you canZiad - how is the wine sector coping with climate change? Lisa - need to live w/ extreme events (e.g., wildfires, water shortages) more frequently, all over the worldXavier - Piemonte & Champagne have benefitted from climate change, and some have adapted winemaking; e.g., Louis Roederer has evolved their Brut Premier multi-vintage wine to “Collection 242,” a new multi-vintage wine that will have a unique number and release each year as the wine is now based around a single vintageDiana - there are two conversations - one on adaptation and one on decelerating climate change through GHG emission reductionsAdaptation - France has to deal with frost issues, especially in Burgundy, Napa has drought and heat

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. WAZE JUST ADDED A HUGE FEATURE TESLA AND OTHER EV OWNERS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR - Google-owned auto navigation app Waze is debuting a new EV charging station map filter for U.S. users in partnership with Volkswagen. - WIth the layer turned on, drivers will be able to spot them from route view, peek at their status, and redirect their journeys to one in case they need a pit stop. A Waze spokesperson clarified to us that it shows EV charging stations from a large database, not just ones in the VW-owned Electrify America network. It's the same capabilities that sister app Google Maps introduced in 2019. - Looking into charging sites, users will see ads for VW's new ID.4 electric SUV. They'll be able to change their Waze avatar to look like an ID.4 as well, at least for the time being.

Additionally, a post on the F-150 Gen 14 forum found that a stakeholder's livestream allegedly stated that certain Platinum model trucks would offer 280 miles of range. - Orders are scheduled to open next month, and Ford says that reservation holders will receive emails inviting them to place orders.

The company has previously said reservations for the new Hummer are fully booked through the next year.

During so-called hot-region testing on tracks and public roads all over the world, the development engineers primarily verify the performance and reliability of the electric motors, the all-wheel drive and the high-voltage battery when being exposed to maximum stress from high temperatures, unpaved roads, dust and large differences in altitude. - The road to series production takes the prototypes of the BMW i7 over gravel tracks into deserts, into the mountains and on a whole series of highly dynamic routes. The BMW i7, the world's only purely electrically powered luxury sedan, will be presented in the course of 2022 together with other model variants of the new BMW 7 Series. - The components of the fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology developed for the BMW i7 demonstrate their unrestricted functionality even under the most adverse conditions when being used continuously in extremely high outside temperatures, permanent sunlight and dry conditions.

Can water mist be used in tunnels? I wondered that for a long time, and with every tunnel project, many questions around this issue were piling in my head. When dealing with large infrastructure projects you really need to work your way around multiple functional aspects of a system - maintenance, water and power consumption,  drainage capacity, availability of elements and their certification... You would love to focus purely on the fire safety aspect of the issue, but you cannot. Unfortunately, this is often the world of fire engineering. And in this world, we make decisions based on what we know about systems - and when we don't know enough - we test it!And for the water mist question, I've found the perfect person to give me some answers.  Johny Jessen from VID Fire Kill has visited me in my office and told me about his experience with full-scale fire tests of water mist systems in a tunnel, carried by Efectis. You know he is serious about what he is doing when you learn that the fire source used for this test was approx. 250 MW! This discussion goes deep into the testing and the differences between suppression systems and challenges that modern engineers face in landmark projects.Johny has asked me to invite you to his LinkedIn profile, where he shares a lot of great resources related to water mist technology - so here you go! And the VID Fire Kill profile. You may also like to check this whitepaper on the experiments carried in Spain that we discussed in this episode. More materials, including videos of the test, can be found on the project website.I must also give a shoutout to friends at Efectis who have done some really great job engineering these fire tests!

Leandro Leviste, the CEO of Solar Philippines, started his solar venture in 2013 when the Philippines had less than 10 MW of installed solar power. Today his ambitions are big: he wants to build solar plants on his 10,000-hectare land through partnerships and enable the transition from coal and gas. Although Leandro started from a mindset of distributed generation, today he believes in large centralized battery and solar installation because of economies of scale and other factors. From the proceeds of his early investments in Solar City and Tesla, Leandro went to big plants —not rooftop solar but large centralized systems, and he explains why in our discussion. We touched on the prospects of electric vehicles and batteries in the Philippines and the 10,000 MW of solar that the country's system will need by 2025, which will be only 100 Watt per capita solar installation.

Foundations of Amateur Radio
Getting Amateur Radio propagation data at home

Foundations of Amateur Radio

Foundations of Amateur Radio For some time now I've been discussing the potential of weak signal propagation and its ability to create a live map from the data that your own station transmits. There are several systems in place that show a map of where and when your station was heard in the past little while. Using 200 milliwatts, I've been transmitting a WSPR or Weak Signal Propagation Reporter beacon on 10m for the past few weeks. At the moment, the furthest away my beacon has been heard is 13.612 km away. That's an 0.2 Watt signal heard on the other side of the planet, on 10m. As distance goes, it's a third of the way around the globe. I must point out that there's no way of knowing if this signal travelled the short path or the long path. If you've heard those terms, short and long path but were wondering what they mean, here's how it works. If I get on my bike at my QTH in Perth in VK6 and peddle East until I hit Sydney, I'll have crossed Australia, taken about 184 hours and travelled about 3.746 km. That's the short path. If I head West instead and start swimming, visit Cape Town, Buenos Aires and Auckland along the way, I'll have travelled much further, still made it to Sydney, but taken the long path. Radio waves can do the same. Depending on propagation, a signal might take either the shortest route, or go in the opposite direction and take the longest route along the great circle between two stations. I'm mentioning this because WSPR doesn't tell you if it's one or the other and if you're using a vertical, it could be either. Even directional antennas might receive a signal from unexpected directions. Using one of the mapping tools, wspr.live, I extracted all the sightings of my callsign and all the reports that I'd made from my receiver. It shows that my newest transmitter has now been heard by 11 stations across three continents. Those numbers are just the beginning. I wanted to see on the map where these stations were, so, during the week I built a proof of concept world map that I used to visually show the four character Maidenhead grid squares that my station was heard in. I also had a look to see which stations I'd heard over the years and where they were. In all, 771 different stations are in my log, either as a receiver or a transmitter. N4WQH heard me on 40m, 18.832 km away when I was using 5 Watts. My station has heard, or has been heard across 331 different grid squares. There's reports across some remote parts of Australia, Japan, India, South Africa, Europe, the United States, several across the Pacific and even a few in Antarctica. I wondered how many of the world's grid squares have actually been activated and which station was heard the furthest and how much power was used. Those numbers will have to wait for another day. I initially started using wspr.live which has a neat way of allowing you to embed an SQL query as part of the URL to download the output. I was getting some interesting results, so I thought, rather than hammer this lovely resource with my questions, I should download the raw data instead. So I did. Well, I am. Still. It's big. As of today, there's 166 files, taking up 60 GB of compressed data, with over 3.5 billion reports. The first spot in that data goes to N8FQ who heard WB3ANQ on Monday, the 17th of March, 2008 across 911 km on the 30m band transmitting with 28 dBm, or about 630 mW, reporting a signal to noise ratio of 1 dB. Using preliminary data to get started I mapped all the activated squares, each shown as a red box and saw that my entire map was red. At that point I figured that either I've got a bug in my code, or something else is going on. To give some context before I share what I found, a Maidenhead locator consists of a combination of letters and numbers. For four letter grid squares, there's a grand total of 32.400 different combinations, running from AA00 to RR99. They're 2 degrees wide and 1 degree high and their width depends on where on the planet they are. At the equator it's about 222 km wide and 111 km tall, at the North and South pole, it's 0 km wide. If you travel between two squares, you might have to move a meter, or the entire width of a grid square. Among the report, I found stations who had activated more than one square. That's fair enough, you can move your station and start making noise where ever you like. I found stations with activations across more than a thousand different squares. Before I start pointing the finger, I will mention that if you attach a WSPR beacon to an aircraft, or a balloon, you can legitimately activate plenty of squares. When you set-up a WSPR transmitter, you're required to manually enter the locator and mistakes happen. There's plenty of records with invalid Maidenhead locators, typically shown instead is a callsign. Then there are stations that pick desirable locators. This manual entry is also true for the power level and even the callsign, so I'm not outing these stations here, since it's entirely possible that the callsign shown doesn't actually relate to the transmitter or the licensed amateur. What does all this mean? It means that the information in the WSPR database cannot be trusted. I suspect it also means that the data used to lodge FT8 contacts across the planet can probably also not be trusted. It means that any propagation data you're deriving is likely contaminated by misreporting, deliberately or not. As a community, if we want to use this for actual measurements, we'll have to figure out how to make this a trusted resource, because the information that WSPR can bring to propagation is in my opinion extremely valuable. I would love to hear your thoughts on how we might fix it. I'm Onno VK6FLAB

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 new PATREON EXECUTIVE PRODUCER GEORGE TORTAROLO MERCEDES-BENZ TO INVEST 60 BILLION EUROS INTO THE FUTURE - Daimler AG's Supervisory Board at its meeting today approved the Mercedes-Benz Business Plan for 2022 to 2026, endorsing the strategic plan for Mercedes-Benz to go fully electric. - For the transformation into a software-driven and emissions-free future, the Supervisory Board signed off on an investment plan for the years 2022 to 2026 of more than 60 billion euros. Although the company plans to reduce capex, research and development expenditure for the electrification of the product portfolio and digitalization measures, including steps towards automated driving, will remain at a high level. - In addition, a gradual shift toward a direct sales model, which includes control over pricing, is being sought. Rising revenue from digital services will further support results. - Mercedes-Benz is preparing to go all electric by the end of the decade, wherever market conditions allow. - the investment plan for 2022 to 2026 remains in line with the goal of cutting capex and research and development spending by more than 20 percent between 2019 and 2025 and to further reduce it beyond this date.The key to achieving this is stringent prioritization of future investments – mainly by focusing on electric mobility. The company expects that the use of standardised battery platforms and scalable vehicle architectures - together with advances in battery technology - will contribute to a reduction in the variable costs of vehicles. The proportion of battery costs in a vehicle is expected to decrease significantly this decade. Original Source : https://www.daimler.com/company/news/211202-supervisory-board-confirms-business-plan.html ELECTRIFY AMERICA BATTERY STORAGE AT 140 SITES - Electrify America today announced that it has installed onsite, behind-the-meter battery energy storage systems (BESS) at over 140 DC fast charging stations around the country, including more than 90 installations in California. These systems in total have more than 30 megawatts (MW) of energy storage capacity, representing the largest roll-out of onsite behind-the-meter battery energy storage coupled with ultra-fast DC chargers in North America. - The battery energy storage systems store power when electricity costs are low and supplement power during high points of consumption, minimizing impact on the electrical grid and mitigating demand surges to help Electrify America maintain consistent pricing. - One of the prominent obstacles utility providers face can be “demand charges,” which are electricity surcharges on peak power usage designed to capture the marginal costs imposed on the grid by high-capacity, high-utilization infrastructure, such as factories. When traditional demand charges are levied upon high-capacity, low-utilization infrastructure such as high-powered EV charging stations, they place a disproportionate cost burden on the station owners. - Electrify America's investment in onsite behind-the-meter battery energy storage also has the potential to maximize renewable energy use. Energy storage has the ability to help store excess renewable energy to be used in times where those renewable sources may not be available, and further leverage the tailpipe emissions reductions that follow from transportation electrification.

(AWS) as their preferred cloud provider to deliver connected services, facilitate over-the-air software updates, and manage fleets of connected vehicles. - The latest company to sign on is electric truck maker Rivian, which comes as no surprise since Amazon is a backer of the company. - AWS will also power Rivian's software-defined electric vehicle architecture and over-the-air software updates to improve the performance of its vehicles.

These photos show it wearing very little camouflage in cold-weather testing near the Arctic Circle. From these photos, the electric minivan has lost some of its retro charm in the transition from concept to production vehicle, but it's still looking attractive and practical. - ID.Buzz concept was touted as a modern interpretation of the 1960s Microbus, an icon of the hippie era. The ID.Buzz will feature an all-electric powertrain and shares its structure with the smaller ID.4 SUV. We expect the base model to have rear-wheel drive and come with around 200 horsepower; an all-wheel-drive variant could offer around 300 horsepower from dual electric motors.

Will this be the new normal for EVs? - As soon as next month, the ID.3 may get an updated infotainment system with a larger 12-inch screen. In addition, the electric hatchback's touch-sensitive cabin climate slider will get lighting to make it easier to see at night. Criticism from ID.3 owners has also forced VW to upgrade the cabin with higher quality fabrics and materials, especially in upper trims. - The above updates all come ahead of a more significant ID.3 refresh that's planned for early 2023. The mid-cycle update is set to provide a larger dose of updated interior materials, a revamped exterior design, and improved LED taillights Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/552039/volkswagen-id3-refresh-coming/ TOYOTA TO OFFER SPECIALIZED ELECTRIC CAR ‘HUBS' FOR BZ4X SALES - Toyota will sell its new range of pure-electric vehicles, starting with the bZ4X, at a series of in-dealer ‘hubs' that can offer specialised advice about the switch to EV motoring. - Toyota's European product and marketing boss, Andrea Carlucci, told us that the bZ Hubs are likely to be ‘store in store' facilities - in effect, a dedicated area of the showroom floor - but admitted that not every dealership would be expected to offer this more specialised service. - The bZ4X is being launched with a single 71.4kWh battery configuration, and Carlucci says this is designed to keep the customer buying journey as simple as possible.

The wines need to be able to age and often cost $100+/bottle.Collectors and investors have deep knowledge of the wines, understand how they appreciate in value, and how well they age, but are  also  concerned about condition and authenticityRare Wine TrendsUsed to be classified Bordeaux dominated the marketBurgundy has emerged and appreciated in valueChampagne has also solidified its spotDuring US-EU wine tariffs on many EU wines (25%) - Champagne and Italy increased in demand (did not have tariffs)Rhone and Spanish wines emerging over timeLargest rare wine markets in the USCA and Tri-State area (NY, NJ, CT)FL, TX, and IL are also largeCollectors in every state in the countrySustainability becoming an essential topic across all consumer categoriesBenchmark Wine Group - focuses on the rare wine marketLargest selection of rare wines, ~13,000 wines with ~100,000 bottles at any given time (~70-80% of wines come from private collections)Provenance Guarantee - meticulous on how wines are inspected, and Benchmark handles all the transportationHave on-staff sommeliers and salespeople to work with clientsMargins look more like a distributor than a retailer - have to take more risk around the ability to sell the wines and more specialized labor for inspectionCan ship to 45 states - transactions take place in CA, buyer technically ships wines to themselvesBenchmark vs. auction housesBenchmark advantages - price certainty, immediate payment, prices often on the high end of auction pricesAuction disadvantages - no guarantee of sale, sale and payment could take monthsRare wine pricingAlso owns the Wine Market Journal - expert source for auction information, data from 1986, provides a baseline for selling priceTracks sales from some large retailersWine-Searcher shows asking prices vs. selling pricesTechnology & wine retailEmerging trends - leveraging AI for label scanning and wine recommendationsIn-person tastings to come back but still have virtual and hybrid experiencesBenchmark does “Raid Your Cellar” - where a sommelier talks to a winemakerNYC Wine Spectator's Wine Experience in 2021 - hybrid event - Masterclass instructors were sometimes in person, sometimes remoteEmail marketingWill continue to be the most efficient and effectiveMore than one email/day from a retailer can be overwhelmingBenchmark does some email segmentation to reduce “spam”Segment by region - e.g., only get emails for Bordeaux, Burgundy, etc.Segment by wine age - e.g., only last 20 years of wines, not older vintagesRare wine collectors older (mostly Gen X, Baby Boomers) - still prefer emailSome younger customers (Millennials) prefer instant messaging, textUse of mobile is more important than native apps (don't provide that much more functionality vs. mobile designed websites)Vivino - sits in-between retailer and consumer, creates a 4th or 5th tierWine ScoresCritical the higher up the price curve you go - provides a guide for consumersAdds credibility to producersAffirmation for a particular wine for a specific vintageConsumer reviews (e.g., CellarTracker, Vivino) can be used for more recent tastings vs. professional reviewersPotential for market disruptionConsolidation likely to continue - Total Wine, Costco - continue to build out more nationwide reachTechnology - wine world catching up with the rest of the worldSmall retailers - need to compete with more personalized service, which can leverage tools to be virtual nowDelivery to door, sometimes in hours or minutes in some states

"Emilia," he said, turning back to her. "There are people out there coming towards us. People with hoods." "I know," she said calmly. "Sorry, Layton. I really do have feelings for you, but it has to bed fed." "Fed?" Layton didn't like the way that sounded at all. "The beast" he mumbled as he put on his shoes and jacket.A very well documented murder, well actually murders, in Helsinki in 1960 are the basis for this extra creepy tale. Layton and Emilia are a young couple on a trip of a lifetime in Finland, loving life. That all comes to a halt when Emilia tries to offer Layton up as a sacrifice. It's a weird story that will make you think twice about traveling with your significant other. A truly haunted house that also houses haunted objects, possibly, is the basis for tale two of Dan's this week. The house that sits at 50 Berkley Square in London is supposedly home to rare objects, books and items of the occult. Did the Maggs Brothers buy this home because of its interesting past so that they could stash all of their bizarre artifacts there? So many deaths and sightings occurred here, it's hard to imagine anyone would want to own or occupy it. Lynze carries on with the haunted house theme. In the first story, Ana sees a little blonde girl in her house, regularly. Her family eventually confronts the ghost and her many friends, but they don't want to leave. Why do the children want to stay? And is it possible that they simply feel safe there? Lastly, the melting clown. MW has a tale that freaks Dan out. It's one of his greatest fears- Clowns. And that clown shows up in the most vulnerable of places. Many years later, MW finds out just how the spirits that haunted her and her childhood home got there in the first place. Bad Magic Third Annual Giving Tree Update: We will have an update on the next episode as to how many families we were able to help and how much money was donated!
