Inside the Push to Remake “the Fed”

The Federal Reserve, better known as “the Fed,” has been in the spotlight quite a bit in recent weeks, following an apparent insider trading scandal embroiling several high-level officials at America's central bank. And in the latest shoe to drop, disclosure documents made public in recent weeks reveal that the scandal of stock trading during the pandemic extends all the way up to the chair of the Fed himself—Jerome “Jay” Powell.  With Chairman Powell's term ending in January 2022, a growing chorus of progressives, climate activists, advocates for racial justice, and economic heavyweights from Nobel Prize–winning economist Joseph Stiglitz to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren are calling on President Biden not to renominate Powell and instead to use what could be as many as four open seats on the Fed's all-white, seven-member governing board to reshape the agency into an institutional force for racial, gender, climate, and economic progress—and bring some long-overdue racial and gender diversity to a critical institution that's been run nearly exclusively by white men. “Is the Biden administration going to fulfill what is at the heart of its agenda? Then it should not be Powell,” said Stiglitz in an interview with Reuters last month. The Biden White House has not yet announced what they plan to do when Powell's term ends, though a decision is expected any day now.  With an historic debate brewing over what to do with the Federal Reserve, we at Off-Kilter thought it would be useful to pull together something of an explainer on the nation's central bank, how it operates, and why it's so important to economic and antipoverty policy—and to go inside the push to remake the Fed in the wake of the wave of recent scandals. So Rebecca sat down with Saqib Bhatti, co-executive director of the Action Center on Race and the Economy, better known as ACRE—and one of the groups leading the charge—to break it all down.  For lots more on this: Read more from Saqib and his ACRE colleagues Brittany Alston and Vasudha Desikan in “President Biden Must Appoint a New Fed Chair Who Is Serious About Racial Equity.” Read Vasudha Desikan and Liberation in a Generation's Solana Rice in Ms. Magazine: “We Need More Women in Leadership at the Fed: Personnel Is Policy.” Here's more on the pandemic stock trading scandals, from The American Prospect's Bob Kuttner. Here's why Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz says Powell should go.  And here's Senator Elizabeth Warren's speech making the case for new leadership at the Fed.

Building a Database of CSAM for AOL, One Image at a Time

If you work in content moderation or with a team that specializes in content moderation, then you know that the fight against child sexual abuse material (CSAM) is a challenging one. The New York Times reported that in 2018, technology companies reported a record 45 million online photos and videos of child sexual abuse. Ralph Spencer, our guest for this episode, has been working to make online spaces safer and combatting CSAM for more than 20 years, including as a technical investigator at AOL. Ralph describes how when he first started at AOL, in the mid-'90s, the work of finding and reviewing CSAM was largely manual. His team depended on community reports and all of the content was manually reviewed. Eventually, this manual review led to the creation of AOL's Image Detection Filtering Process (IDFP), which reduced the need to manually review the actual content of CSAM. Working with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), law enforcement, and a coalition of other companies, Ralph shares how he saw his own team's work evolve, what he considered his own metrics of success when it comes to this work, and the challenges that he sees for today's platforms. The tools, vocabulary, and affordances for professionals working to make the internet safer have all improved greatly, but in this episode, Patrick and Ralph discuss the areas that need continued improvement. They discuss Section 230 and what considerations should be made if it were to be amended. Ralph explains that when he worked at AOL, the service surpassed six million users. As of last year, Facebook had 2.8 billion monthly active users. With a user base that large and a monopoly on how many people communicate, what will the future hold for how children, workers, and others that use them are kept safe on such platforms? Ralph and Patrick also discuss: Ralph's history fighting CSAM at AOL, both manually and with detection tools Apple's announcement to scan iCloud photos for NCMEC database matches How Ralph and other professionals dealing with CSAM protect their own health and well-being Why Facebook is calling for new or revised internet laws to govern its own platform Our Podcast is Made Possible By… If you enjoy our show, please know that it's only possible with the generous support of our sponsor: Vanilla, a one-stop shop for online community. Big Quotes How Ralph fell into trust and safety work (20:23): “[Living in the same apartment building as a little girl who was abused] was a motivational factor [in doing trust and safety work]. I felt it was a situation where, while I did basically all I could in that situation, I [also] didn't do enough. When this [job] came along … I saw it as an opportunity. If I couldn't make the situation that I was dealing with in real life correct, then maybe I can do something to make a situation for one of these kids in these [CSAM] pictures a little bit better.” –Ralph Spencer Coping with having to routinely view CSAM (21:07): “I developed a way of dealing with [having to view CSAM]. I'd leave work and try not to think about it. When we were still doing this as a team … everybody at AOL generally got 45 minutes to an hour for lunch. We'd take two-hour lunches, go out, walk around. We did team days before people really started doing them. We went downtown in DC one day and went to the art gallery. The logic for that was like, you see ugly stuff every day, let's go look at some stuff that has cultural value or has some beauty to it, and we'll stop and have lunch at a nice restaurant.” –Ralph Spencer How organizations work with NCMEC and law enforcement to report CSAM (28:32): “[When our filtering tech] catches something that it sees in the [CSAM] database, it packages a report which includes the image, the email that the image was attached to, and a very small amount of identifying information. The report is then automatically sent to [the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children]. NCMEC looks at it, decides if it's something that they can run with, and if it is … they send the report to law enforcement in [the correct] jurisdiction.” –Ralph Spencer When “Ralph caught a fed” (37:37): “We caught the guy who was running the Miami office of [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]. He was sending [CSAM]. … That one set me back a little bit. … I remember asking the guy who started the team that I was on, who went on to become an expert witness. He worked in the legal department, and his job basically was to go around the country and testify at all the trials explaining how the technology that caught these images worked. I said, ‘I got an email about this guy from ICE down in Florida, was that us?' He's like, ‘Yes, that was you.'” –Ralph Spencer Facebook's multiple lines of communication offer multiple avenues for content violations (45:08): “Zuckerberg is running around talking about how he's trying to get the world closer together by communicating and increasing the lines of communication. A lot of these lines just lead to destructive ends.” –Ralph Spencer About Ralph Spencer Ralph Spencer has been working to make online spaces safer for more than 20 years, starting with his time as a club editorial specialist (message board editor) at Prodigy and then graduating to America Online. He's wrestled with some of the most challenging material on the internet. During his time at AOL, Ralph was a terms of service representative, a graphic analyst, and a case investigator before landing his final position as a technical investigator. In that position, he was in charge of dealing with all issues involving child sexual abuse material (CSAM), then referred to as “illegal images” by the company. Ralph oversaw the daily operation of the automated processes used to scan AOL member email for these images and the reporting pf these incidents to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which, ultimately, sent these reports to the appropriate law enforcement agencies. The evidence that Ralph, and the team he worked with in AOL's legal department, compiled contributed to numerous arrests and convictions of individuals for the possession and distribution of CSAM. He currently lives in the Washington, DC area and works as a freelance trust and safety consultant.

It will be slightly smaller than the EQS SUV, also coming next year." says Automotive News Europe: "The EQE crossover and sedan, which is due in 2022 as well, are similar in size and market segment as Mercedes' E-Class cars and crossovers, while the EQS SUV and sedan, launching this fall, slot above and are intended to be the electric equivalent of the company's flagship S-Class vehicles. The EQE vehicles are built on a Mercedes-Benz scalable and flexible EVA platform and are expected to spawn several models, including rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive dual-motor variants that will offer at least two battery pack options."

Hoy en Día a Día, comenzamos conversando con la periodista de TeleAmazonas, María Grazzia Acosta, sobre la investigación contra el presidente Guillermo Lasso: “La reacción del presidente cuando salieron los Pandora Papers fue decir que estaba descontextualizada… Ayer dijo que está dispuesto a acudir a la Asamblea a explicar que no es un político que sacó dinero del pueblo para abrir un paraíso fiscal”, comentó, y agregó: “Esta investigación podría concluir en la destitución de Lasso”. El abogado y vicepresidente de la ONG Foro Penal, Gonzalo Himiob, nos habló sobre el Protocolo de Minnesota: “Cuando la muerte de una persona es atribuida al Estado por violar su obligación de respetar la vida, entonces se activa este protocolo”, dijo. Himiob agregó: “Hemos contabilizado 10 personas que han muerto en circunstancias similares después de haber sido arbitrariamente detenidas por motivos políticos. Y estamos analizando un onceavo caso”. Nereidina González, corresponsal de Telemundo en Chile, nos habló sobre el juicio contra el presidente Piñera presentado por la oposición chilena: “En los Pandora Papers apareció el contrato de compraventa de Dominga del 2010, y el pago de la última cuota estaba condicionado a que el lugar donde se iba a construir no fuera declarado como reserva ambiental protegida”, dijo, y explicó que para lograr esto tenía que estar implicado el presidente, por lo que “Esta acusación podría costarle su puesto a Piñera”. Desde Nueva York nos atendió la reportera de inmigración en Reuters, Mica Rosenberg, para conversar sobre los reclamos de activistas para reclamar una reforma migratoria en EE.UU: “Los demócratas intentaron poner una reforma migratoria en la resolución del presupuesto, pero no tuvieron éxito”, dijo, y destacó: “El presidente Biden tiene otras prioridades con propuestas en las que quiere gastar mucho dinero en otras ramas, por lo que la Casa Blanca pondrá sus esfuerzos en estos temas primero”. También nos atendió Sebastián Arcos, director asociado del Instituto de Investigaciones Cubanas en la Universidad Internacional de Florida, para hablarnos sobre la manifestación convocada para el 15 de noviembre en Cuba: “Ese día lo más probable es que un grupo de personas intente salir a las calles a marchar, y van a estar esperándolos las fuerzas represivas del Estado… En un régimen totalitario como el cubano es imposible lograr la organización de manifestaciones. Por eso son tan raras y se forman de manera espontánea”, explicó. Y para cerrar, el analista financiero y director de Latam Advisors, Sebastián Maril, nos habló sobre los datos de la economía de Latinoamérica en 2021 arrojados por el FMI: “Chile y Perú son los países que más van a crecer este año, con 11% y 10% respectivamente. Brasil y México crecerán entre un 6% y 7%”, dijo, y explicó: “Venezuela es la única economía latinoamericana que no crecería este año según los datos del FMI, aunque va a experimentar una mejora bastante importante”

Pressure on the global supply chain is making plenty of things much harder to get hold of. President Biden has announced one of America's busiest ports will now work round the clock to help clear a backlog of shipping containers. The shipping industry group BIMCO's chief shipping analyst Peter Sand gives us his assessment of how best to tackle the problem. Also in the programme, the BBC's Rahul Tandon reports on a power supply crisis in India, where more than 60% of the country's coal-fired power stations are suffering from fuel shortages. Plus, Italian airline Alitalia's last flight takes off from Rome today. It is being replaced with a new national airline called ITA, with thousands of jobs lost in the process. Giulia Segreti is Rome correspondent for Reuters, and brings us the background to Alitalia's demise.

On COI #174, Kyle Anzalone breaks down the recent news in the US Cold War against China. Reuters reports that the US has been sending special operations soldiers to Taiwan for training. The US has sent Coast Guard and arms trainers to Taiwan previously, but the special operations forces would be a serious escalation. The UK is following Washington's lead with its own “tilt” to the Indo-Pacific. The UK's new aircraft carrier is currently docked in Singapore while two other UK warships are preparing for new homes in Japan.  Kyle discusses US-Iran tensions. Iran has signaled a willingness to return to nuclear negotiations in Vienna. However, the Biden administration has largely met the new Iranian president's overtures with threats of more sanctions. Last week, the US removed sanctions on two Iranian entities. The move could have been a signal to Iran that the US was open to removing additional penalties, but the Treasury Department made clear that the sanctions relief did not indicate an overall policy change and more measures could come soon.  Kyle updates the situation in Syria. The Syrian Kurds recently met with US officials and said Washington gave a firm commitment that US troops would remain in Syria. The occupation of some of Syria's more profitable regions is causing suffering for average Syrians. Eventually, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will challenge the US in the eastern regions, potentially provoking clashes with American forces. The US effort to overthrow Assad in Syria is lost, and even American allies who took part in the prior regime change effort – such as Jordan – are reforging ties with Assad.  Odysee Rumble  Donate LBRY Credits bTTEiLoteVdMbLS7YqDVSZyjEY1eMgW7CP Donate Bitcoin 36PP4kT28jjUZcL44dXDonFwrVVDHntsrk Donate Bitcoin Cash Qp6gznu4xm97cj7j9vqepqxcfuctq2exvvqu7aamz6 Patreon Subscribe Star YouTube Facebook  Twitter  MeWe Apple Podcast  Amazon Music Google Podcasts Spotify iHeart Radio Support Our Sponsor Visit Paloma Verde and use code PEACE for 25% off our CBD

Professor Card, of UC Berkeley, tells us about his work on the minimum wage. Also in the programme, with energy prices rising across the US and Europe, we ask David Shepherd, energy editor at the Financial Times to explain what's been happening. And the President of the Environmental Defense Fund, Fred Krupp talks us through methane emission cuts and the difference they can make to climate change .

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Saturday 9th October. 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. MERCEDES-BENZ EV SALES UPDATE In the first three quarters of the year, sales of hybrid and electric vehicles surged to a record 184,369 units (+142.7%). The Mercedes-Benz EQC sold 17,938 units and the EQA achieved a record 13,021 deliveries thanks to robust demand for zero-emission cars, particularly in Q3 when almost half of all EQ deliveries occurred. The EQS electric flagship went on sale in August. Overall 61,652 plug-in hybrids and all-electric cars were sold in Q3 (+34.1%) of which 19,298 were electric-only vehicles (+38.0%). https://www.daimler.com/investors/reports-news/financial-news/20211006-mercedes-benz-sales-q3.html MERCEDES TO ADD 300 JOBS AT U.S. PLANT IN PREPARATION FOR EV PRODUCTION "Mercedes-Benz will add about 300 jobs at its Alabama assembly plant by the end of this year as the luxury automaker gears up to build electric utility vehicles." reports Automotive News for subscribers: "The factory, in the town of Vance, employs 4,400 and is a production hub for the Mercedes GLS and GLE utility vehicles. Starting next year, it will produce battery-powered versions of the two popular vehicles. Mercedes is hiring for the assembly, body and paint shops, as well as the battery plant, where workers will assemble high-voltage EV battery systems." EQS starts in Q2 and EQE in Q4.

At the event, Reuss mentioned two new EV SUVs by name, first confirming an electric version of the Chevrolet Equinox is on its way. Reuss noted that the Equinox EV will be a high-volume model with a starting price of around $30,000.  The other SUV on Chevy's EV list is the Blazer - a mid-size crossover SUV which has been around since 2019 and will now be blessed with a fully electric drivetrain."

It was September 2019. His secret weapon, tucked deep into a chart-heavy presentation, was a bug-eyed cargo truck built by a startup few people had heard of." says Bloomberg in the second of their Rivian series: "The order immediately separated the auto rookie from the parade of promising electric startups, providing backing, a big book of business and legitimacy. It also would soon start to draw in additional investment from major players, including Ford Motor Co." Bloomberg adds: "On Friday, Rivian shared new details of the Amazon deal in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, revealing how closely its fate is tied to one of its biggest benefactors. The e-commerce giant will have exclusive rights to Rivian's delivery vehicles for four years after receiving its first one, and it gets right of first refusal to buy the vans for two years after that. There's a clear recognition inside Rivian and with its investors that the van for Amazon is a priority and the pickup a sideshow until production can be ramped up to meaningful volumes. The deal gives Rivian visibility and guaranteed revenue, along with a deadline. An all-hands-on-deck edict has been issued to get the project up to speed — for now, the R1T is taking a back seat." As for the subscriptions their owners can take, Rivian say: “Rivian defines LTR (Lifetime Revenue) potential as the revenue it can generate from its Rivian vehicles throughout its lifetime (considered to be 10 years), if the owner, in this case, subscribes to everything possible. Level 3 driving capabilities account for $10,000, and a monthly subscription plan for infotainment, connectivity, diagnostics, and other services accounts for the other $5,500.” Read more: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-10-06/how-amazon-pushed-rivian-s-van-into-the-fast-lane RIVIAN ADVENTURE NETWORK PRICING AND ACCESS On the charging network: "RAN sites will be exclusive for Rivian owners initially, with Rivian members receiving special rates." InsideEVs says: "The upcoming Rivian Adventure Network (RAN) of DC fast chargers is promised to quickly expand to about 600 sites in the U.S. and Canada with a total of more than 3,500 DC fast chargers by the end of 2023 (see details here). According to Rivian, chargers will be exclusively available to R1T and R1S drivers, but only "initially". At a later point, the network will be opened to other EVs, which is a positive sign and good news for those who were afraid that Rivian's chargers will not be available to the public. Besides Rivian Adventure Network, the company will deploy also about 10,000 Rivian Waypoints charging points by 2023. Those are 11.5 kW AC charging points, envisioned for destination locations or places where drivers spend more time - shops, restaurants, hotels and parks. Those points will be available for all EV drivers."

The MG ZS EV first appeared in 2018 and quickly became popular thanks to its competitive pricing. The facelifted model will reach dealerships this November with the intention of making the electric SUV even more attractive to European buyers." according to CarScoops: "ZS EV gets the new LED headlights and taillights of its ICE-powered sibling but adopts a different front bumper that distinguishes it further. The grille is fully covered with a new pattern while the side intakes are smaller giving the car a cleaner and more aerodynamic look.  Inside, the 10.1-inch touchscreen incorporates the new MG iSMART infotainment system with new features, remote control functions, and more connectivity options.  the most important change has to do with the new bigger 72 kWh battery pack offering a 273-mile (439 km) WLTP range. In 2022, MG will also offer a cheaper variant with a smaller 51 kWh battery pack offering a range of 198 miles (319 km)."

Not in the UK, though, as the Chinese-owned British automaker has yet to announce details about a possible launch in its home market. Described as the largest and most luxurious MG, the Marvel R Electric is a C-segment SUV offering a choice of two powertrains and starting prices of €39,990 ($46,250) for the base RWD model and €47,990 ($55,500) for the range-topping AWD version." reports InsideEVs: "It offers two all-electric powertrains, one with rear-wheel drive and one with all-wheel drive. Both feature the same 70 kWh battery which enables a WLTP range of 402 kilometers (250 miles) in the Comfort and Luxury RWD trim levels. These models feature two rear-mounted electric motors with a system output of 132 kW (177 hp). The AWD model, available exclusively in the range-topping Performance trim level, adds an electric motor to the front axle for a system output of 212 kW (284 hp). Customers will benefit from quick charging capability at a public charging point (AC) due to the standard 11 kW 3-phase on-board charger. The battery can also be charged at a fast-charging station (DC) with a capacity of up to 92 kW. All models are also fitted with a V2L (Vehicle-to-Load) system as standard, allowing the battery to supply energy to an external electrical system at a maximum load capacity of 2,500W.

Reuters reported this week that Turkey made a request to the US to buy 40 Lockheed Martin-made F-16 fighter jets and nearly 80 modernization kits for its existing warplanes, as Turkey looks to modernize its Air Force after it was kicked out of the F-35 program. The deal, which would be worth billions, would need the approval of both the US State Department as well as Congress, which can block deals. The request comes as Turkey's President Erdogan recently stated that Turkey is looking to buy a second batch of S-400s from Russia. Expert Aaron Stein joins The Greek Current to discuss this latest request by Turkey, explain why it could be the endpoint of Turkey's S-400 to F-35 to CAATSA saga, and place it within the broader context of US-Turkish relations. Aaron Stein is the Director of Research at the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI) and an expert on Turkey, arms control and nonproliferation.

I'm Stacey Simms and these are the top diabetes stories and headlines of the past seven days. As always, I'm going to link up my sources in the Facebook comments – where we are live – and in the show notes at d-c dot com when this airs as a podcast.. so you can read more if you want, on your own schedule. XX In the News is brought to you by Real Good Foods! Find their Entrée Bowls and all of their great products in your local grocery store, Target or Costco. XX Our top story this week.. Medtronic has expanded a recall of its MiniMed 600 series insulin pumps to include nearly half a million devices. This is an FDA Class One recall – the most serious type – because the pumps may deliver incorrect insulin doses. The recall was first announced in 2019 for just two models. Medtronic now says it will replace any MiniMed 600 series insulin pump that has a clear retainer ring with one that has the updated black retainer ring at no charge. That's even if there is no damaged and regardless of the warranty status of the pump. There's more to this – including directions on how to check if your pump may be affected and who to call. I'll put all of that here in the FB comments and in the show notes. https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2021-10-05/medtronic-expands-recall-to-include-more-than-463-000-insulin-pumps XX Enrollment is under way for the first pediatric trials for Afrezza inhalable insulin. This will involve children ages 4 to 17 living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. It's called the INHALE-1 phase three trial. They're going to look at changes in A1C after 26 weeks.. and then changes in fasting glucose after another 26 weeks. If you're interested, we've got the link for more info to this study and to learn about enrollment. Afrezza was approved for adults back in 2014. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04974528. https://investors.mannkindcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/mannkind-announces-first-patient-enrolled-inhale-1-study XX Last week we told you about the Glucagon emergency kit recall from Lilly. Reuters is reporting that the kits were made in a factory previously cited for quality-control violations, including several involving the glucagon product. Lilly had received a report of a patient who experienced seizures even after being injected with the drug, a sign that glucagon was not potent enough to work. The company said the product failure might be related to its manufacturing process, without elaborating. A spokesperson declined to say whether Lilly has received other reports of adverse events related to the Glucagon kits. Separately, Lilly is facing a federal criminal investigation into alleged manufacturing irregularities involving another of its U.S. factories in New Jersey. Reuters is following both stories and of course, we will too. https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/exclusive-eli-lillys-recalled-emergency-diabetes-drug-came-plant-cited-by-fda-2021-10-04/ XX Big new report on adults with type 1.. called a forgotten population in this write up. The consensus statement covers diagnosis, goals and targets, schedule of care, self-management education and lifestyle, glucose monitoring, insulin therapy, hypoglycemia, psychosocial care and much more. This is a joint statement from the American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes Their last consensus report on type 2 diabetes has been "highly influential," these researchers say.. so they recognize the need to develop a comparable report specifically addressing type 1 diabetes in adults. https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/960158 XX Adults with Type 2 diabetes on statin therapy may see worsening diabetes symptoms. Important caution: the researchers are quick to say that association does not prove causation, no patient should just stop taking their statins based on this study. These are cholesterol lowering medications with brand names like Lipitor and Crestor.. Statin users had a 37% higher risk for diabetes progression, including extremely high blood sugar levels and elevated rates of disease complications. Nearly half of adults with Type 2 diabetes also have high cholesterol and many of them stop taking statins due to this kind of thing. But that may increase the risk for heart attack or stroke. So definitely talk to your doctor before making any changes. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2021/10/04/statins-diabetes-progression-risk-study/7261633358483/ XX More to come, But first, I want to tell you about one of our great sponsors who helps make Diabetes Connections possible.

Back to the news… -- DreaMed Diabetes gets FDA approval to expand their platform to people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Called Advisor Pro, it's the first decision support system that has been cleared to assist healthcare providers in the management of diabetes patients who use insulin as well as CGMs and meters. We spoke to these folks on the podcast last year. They say Advisor Pro aims to solve the massive worldwide shortage of endocrinologists by empowering primary care clinicians, to be able to provide expert level endocrinological care to diabetes patients. The company's founder says the next step is to develop and extend the technology to cover all injectable or oral medications for diabetes. https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20211006005640/en/ https://diabetes-connections.com/we-treat-the-data-lifting-the-burden-of-diabetes-with-dreamed/ -- Really interesting look at who's adopting newer diabetes technology. This is from an article over at Dia Tribe where they feature a research study showing that roughly 55% of people with diabetes had positive, open attitudes toward technology. However, another 20% had negative attitudes and did not trust technology, while the remaining 25% either did not want additional data, did not want to wear a device on their body or had a very high level of diabetes distress related to using devices. When they focused on people with type 2.. it turns out the uptake of technology was actually lowest among people aged 18 to 25. This group also had the highest levels of diabetes distress and the highest A1C levels, and many reported that they did not like having a device on their body as their main reason for refusing the devices. Others reported the frequency of alerts and alarms, feeling physically uncomfortable, and cost as reasons for rejecting devices. These researchers say providers need to find ways to avoid making patients feel guilty about their choice of technology as well as watching out for negative judgements for those who use devices but don't achieve near perfect glucose control. https://diatribe.org/new-tech-and-psychological-toll-diabetes-management Please join me wherever you get podcasts for our next episode - The episode out right now is all about the film Pay or Die an upcoming documentary about insulin access and affordability. – That's In the News for this week.. if you like it, please share it!

There are just 12 days left until the U.S. economy faces catastrophic failure if the debt ceiling is not raised. Mitch McConnell offered Democrats a deal to raise the debt ceiling on Wednesday--with a catch. Former U.S. Senator Al Franken joins Joy Reid and her panel to discuss. And on Thursday, the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, and the role of the Trump White House in trying to overturn the presidential election, will face its first real test as four of Donald Trump's closest aides and associates face a subpoena deadline. Rep. Jamie Raskin joins Joy Reid with the latest developments from the Hill. Plus, a media expert unpacks a stunning new report from Reuters revealing that far-right "news" network OAN would not exist if AT&T executives had not seen an opportunity to create a new conservative TV network in 2013. Finally, in "The Absolute Worst," Joy critiques the governor and lieutenant governor of Idaho engaging in a game of GOP one-upmanship. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Thursday 7th October. 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. G.M. HOPES ELECTRIC CARS AND NEW BUSINESSES WILL HELP DOUBLE ITS REVENUE "General Motors Co (GM.N) Chief Executive Mary Barra told investors on Wednesday that the automaker plans to double revenue by 2030, expanding profits from combustion vehicles even as it rolls out new electric vehicles and new digitally powered services to catch up with Tesla Inc (TSLA.O)." reported Reuters yesterday: "GM said if it succeeds, annual revenue by 2030 would be about $280 billion, and the automaker would be the leader in U.S. electric vehicle sales. Chief Financial Officer Paul Jacobson said GM expects pre-tax profit margins of 12 to 14%, which could beat current levels. That would imply annual pre-tax profits of as much as $39 billion. Jacobson said GM can fund $9 billion to $10 billion in annual capital spending for electric vehicles and other initiatives while returning money to shareholders." https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/gm-aims-double-revenues-by-2030-it-drives-pass-tesla-2021-10-06/ "General Motors has been spending billions of dollars in the last few years to electrify its cars and trucks, as it tries to catch up to Tesla. Now the company, which has said it aims to stop selling gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035, is beginning to reveal how big it expects this bet will pay off." reports New York Times: "The automaker said on Wednesday that it aims to roughly double its annual revenue by 2030, to about $280 billion. It is counting on new electric trucks and cars for much of the growth while adding new revenue streams from software and services. While it expects modest growth in sales of gasoline-powered vehicles, electric cars are “a tremendous growth opportunity,” [Mary Barra, GM Chief Exec] said. G.M. also hopes to develop ride-hailing services that use autonomous cars, create insurance products and expand its defense contracting work. Read more: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/06/business/gm-revenue-goals.html# "General Motors laid out its forthcoming EV portfolio at its investor event Wednesday, with the full-size electric pickup Chevrolet Silverado as the centerpiece, as the company seeks to gain market share in the increasingly crowded electric truck market." was the take from TechCrunch: "While GM had previously announced the electric Silverado, the company confirmed some additional details, like that it would feature a fixed-glass roof for certain models and that the vehicle would debut at the trade show CES in January 2022. It's joining Ford's F-150 Lightning and Rivian's R1T in the burgeoning electric truck segment — a segment that until now has been conspicuously empty, despite the truck being one of the best-selling vehicle types in America. GM also announced crossovers from its brands Chevy and Buick, in addition to its upcoming GMC Hummer pickup and Cadillac Lyriq crossover. CEO Mary Barra emphasized that the company will offer affordable EVs — “really affordable EVs for people” — as well as other features to lure some would-be Tesla customers." Read more: https://techcrunch.com/2021/10/06/gm-takes-aim-at-teslas-market-share-with-growing-portfolio-of-evs/ GM REVEALS ULTRA CRUISE "General Motors revealed the ace up its sleeve when it comes to driver-assist technologies on Wednesday: Ultra Cruise. The automaker announced the new system as a more capable sibling of today's Super Cruise system. While Super Cruise is rated for hands-free driving on mapped, divided highways in the US and Canada, Ultra Cruise takes it further. In addition to highways, GM said it will handle hands-free driving in 95% of all scenarios. We're talking city streets, subdivision streets and even paved rural roads." writes CNET.com: "Ultra Cruise will cover 2 million miles of roads in the US and Canada, but the automaker has quick plans to add another 1.4 million miles' worth of roads. And when this happens, GM plans for a big strategy shift in which vehicles offer either Super Cruise or Ultra Cruise. Cadillac will be the exclusive brand to provide the Ultra Cruise driving experience, while Super Cruise trickles down to more mainstream offerings from GMC, Buick and Chevrolet. With a combination of cameras, radars and lidar onboard to create the Ultra Cruise system, the technology will support everything from parking in your driveway to object avoidance (that's good), on-demand lane changes and left- and right-hand turns." https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/gm-ultra-cruise-tesla-full-self-driving-beta-rival/ Today, General Motors announced the Wallace Battery Cell Innovation Center, an all-new facility that will significantly expand the company's battery technology operations and accelerate development and commercialization of longer range, more affordable electric vehicle batteries. The Wallace Center will be located on the campus of GM's Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. The battery engineering team based at the Wallace Center will experiment with many types of future battery chemistry in addition to lithium-metal, including pure silicon and solid-state, along with different cell form factors. The Wallace Center is expected to build batteries ranging in energy density from 600 to 1200 watt-hours per liter, along with crucial battery cell ingredients like cell active materials. The Wallace Center will be capable of building large-format, prototype lithium-metal battery cells for vehicle usage beyond the small-scale lithium-metal cells typically used in handheld devices or research applications. These cells could be as large as 1,000 mm, nearly twice the size of the initial Ultium pouch cells and will be based on GM's proprietary formula. GMC HUMMER EV IS BUILT TO WOW "The giant, 200.0-kWh battery is a stressed member of the chassis, which is a sort of hybrid between body-on-frame and unibody; there is a frame and a body, but they aren't isolated in the usual body-on-frame manner. Half-shafts are massive ball-spline units, necessary when an independent suspension with more than nine inches of travel is paired with three motors with the combined twist of 1200 pound-feet of torque. With two motors acting on the rear axle, no differential is necessary, but programming can virtually lock the axle so the motors turn each side at the same speed. Up front there is a locking diff for the third motor." writes Car And Driver: "Our on-road drive was limited, but we found a truck that went down the road with the purpose and confidence born of its mass and power. Not many corrections are required to keep it in a highway lane, and not a lot of feedback comes through the steering wheel when you have to turn. But we weren't expecting much in terms of communication from the 305/70R-18 mud-terrain Goodyears. The ride, however, is downright sublime. Adaptive dampers and air springs bridle the mass with authoritative control." Delivery this year. 350 miles for $112,000.

That includes about 1,700 sold in the U.S." reports InsideEVs: "About every fourth Volvo sold year-to-date was a plug-in (over 132,000 YTD). The lineup consists of several plug-in hybrids and one all-electric model - Volvo XC40 Recharge, which soon will be joined by the Volvo C40 Recharge. By 2025, Volvo intends to increase the share of BEVs in its global sales volume to 50%, and 100% by 2030."

Full battery electrics outperformed, alone taking 15.2% share and a record 32,721 unit volume. Old-school diesel sales fell off a cliff, dropping to under 5% market share in an overall auto market down ~45% in volume from seasonal norms at just over 215,000 units. With an end of quarter push, the Tesla Model 3 was the UK's overall best seller in September." reports Cleantechnica: "Old school combustion powertrains (those without any regen/electric-assist) fell below 50% of the market (48.75%) for the first time since the steam age. Unassisted diesels fell to their lowest point in the modern era, at just 4.95% share, from 14.33% year-on-year, with volume at a pitiful 10,658 units.  Tesla Model 3, boosted by Tesla's usual end-of-quarter peak, was the UK's overall best selling vehicle in September, with 6879 registrations." https://cleantechnica.com/2021/10/05/uk-plugin-ev-share-above-20-in-september-tesla-model-3-overall-bestseller/ NEW QUESTION OF THE WEEK WITH EMOBILITYNORWAY.COM Returned on Sunday 10th October!

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 PRODUCER JOHN E AVENSON SUPPLY SHORTAGES GOOD FOR EVS? "Passenger car manufacturers, being offered just a proportion of the critical semiconductors used in their highly modern vehicles – mainly originating from Asia – are having to ration these and are choosing to fit them to their most profitable models." writes Matthias Schmidt: "With tough fleet average EU CO2 emissions targets on the table, car manufacturers are having to balance their 'carbon books' and are increasing PEV sales mixes, with Germany and France both recording new penetration highs in August in order to compensate for those overweight luxobarges, that are as quick to turn heads as they are profits. Volkswagen's multi-brand MEB dedicated fully-electric production line in Zwickau, where CUPRA's Born was the latest model to join the line last month, and the daily production rate trend – presented in an investor relations presentation earlier in September – shows BEVs were not impacted by the chip shortage. This is causing a rising sales mix for their premium-end models and consequently is reflected in the profit margins." On the actual volumes, Matthias reports: "BEVs are now expected to soak up 10.2% (1.132M units) of the total market while with PHEVs added to the equation – a route mostly exploited by premium OEMs – soaking up 9.8% of the total market (1.088M), the report now expects every fifth new passenger car this year to be a plug-in, translating to 2.22 million new vehicles" Read more: https://www.schmidtmatthias.de/post/semiconductor-crisis-accelerates-the-ev-transition GM AIMS TO PROFIT FROM SOFTWARE AS IT BROADENS ITS EV LINEUP "GM plans to position itself as a technology platform company that is as focused on software as it is on making electric vehicles when it meets with investors next week, including revealing a scheduled rollout for at least 20 EVs in the United States over the next several years." reports Autoblog: "GM executives will provide a more detailed look at the company's plans to spend $35 billion through 2025 on EVs and autonomous vehicles, and will give revenue and profit margin growth targets for the five-year period after that, according to people familiar with the plans, who asked not to be identified. GM will reveal greater detail around its planned EV product launches beyond the upcoming GMC Hummer pickup, EV600 delivery van and Cadillac Lyriq crossover. That includes plans for electric versions of GM's Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickups in late 2022 and late 2023, respectively, according to the sources as well as an industry forecast provided by AutoForecast Solutions (AFS)." Reuters also said: "When it comes to software, GM will discuss what its offerings allow it to do financially and how that will make the Detroit company's business less cyclical than auto companies have been historically, the sources said. Last week, GM introduced the branding for its software platform, Ultifi - coming in 2023 - and discussed building an App store-like approach to making the platform open for developers. Software-oriented products and services are key to GM and other automakers sustaining profit margins during the transition to connected and electric vehicles, but that will compel companies to build skills and workforces they have lacked in the past.

So even though the sports car will be electric, Porsche want the motor to be roughly in the same place where the engine sits in the current Cayman and Boxster models." says InsideEVs: "The goal is to have as much of the vehicle's mass concentrated as close to its center as possible, in order to preserve its handling and agility. They want to make it feel as close to the current model as possible and Autocar points out that the platform that underpins it may also be used in future Audi or Lamborghini sports cars. With the recent Mission R concept shown at IAA 2021, Porsche apparently used a 718 Cayman platform as the base. They then electrified it and gave it the racy, futuristic body that really drew a lot of looks at its debut." CEO Oliver Blume: "When we electrify a model, we won't do a carry-over of the combustion engine [platform] because there are too many compromises. When we are looking to future sports cars, we would develop its own platform but connected with some modules coming from other cars. But the platform will be unique."

Hyundai unveiled the Genesis GV60 in a series of videos and announcements featuring wireless charging. In the future, in addition to simplicity and reliability, wireless charging also has the potential to provide Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) power and dynamic charging to power vehicles in motion.

The 2021 estimate is $157/kWh on a usable-energy basis (the equivalent of $143/kWh on a rated-energy basis) for production at scale, i.e.,100,000 units per year. That compares to $1,237/kWh on a usable-energy basis in 2008. The decline in cost is a combination of improvements in battery technologies and chemistries, and an increase in manufacturing volume.  Read more: https://www.energy.gov/eere/vehicles/articles/fotw-1206-oct-4-2021-doe-estimates-electric-vehicle-battery-pack-costs-2021 TESLA CHIP SHORTAGE: NOT A PROBLEM THIS Q3, Engineering Team Found a Way Says Elon Musk "Tesla has also experienced the chip shortage issue but was not a problem for the clean energy company as the engineering team has found a way around it, which focused on its manufacturing." reports Tech Times: "According to Morgan Stanley's investor notes (as analyzed by Adam Jonas), the clean energy company had no problems concerning chip shortages because it sourced it in-house. That being said, Tesla has focused on its microcontrollers which it can produce, something that they have assembled and combined for its vehicles. With these, the company need not source the chips from an external source, and this was something that the vehicle manufacturer has focused on for a long time now."

They have lost millions on their bets against Tesla, but until recently, they seemed to be holding on. Now it appears to have changed, as the short interest on Tesla's stock has crumbled to an all-time low. It's a massive change since up to 20% of Tesla's entire float was shorted at some point last year – when it was the most shorted stock on the market – but the short percentage steadily fell over the last 12 months." Bloomberg reports: “The percentage of stock borrowed by traders, a standard measure of short interest, has slumped to 1.1% of Tesla's shares available for trading, according to IHS Markit Ltd. as of last Thursday. That's the lowest since 2010, when the carmaker went public.” Read more: https://electrek.co/2021/10/04/people-are-not-betting-against-tesla-tsla-anymore-short-interest-all-time-low/ TESLA ORDERED TO PAY $137 MILLION TO BLACK WORKER OVER RACIST ABUSE "Tesla, the electric car company founded by billionaire Elon Musk, has been ordered by a court to pay a black former employee $137 million in damages over racist abuse by colleagues." writes the Daily Telegraph "In a legal claim against Tesla he said: "Tesla's progressive image was a facade papering over its regressive, demeaning treatment of African-American employees." Mr Diaz alleged that despite his complaints to supervisors Tesla took no action over the regular racist abuse. A jury in San Francisco awarded $130 million in punitive damages and $6.9 million for emotional distress." Tesla posted a blog, here is an excerpt: "The Tesla of 2015 and 2016 (when Mr. Diaz worked in the Fremont factory) is not the same as the Tesla of today. Since then, Tesla has added an Employee Relations team, dedicated to investigating employee complaints. Tesla has added a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion team dedicated to ensuring that employees have the equal opportunity to excel at Tesla. And Tesla now has a comprehensive Employee Handbook (replacing the Anti-Handbook Handbook) where all of our HR policies, employee protections, and ways to report issues are published in one easy-to-find online document. We acknowledge that we still have work to do to ensure that every employee feels that they can bring their whole self to work at Tesla. And as I posted in July, we will continue to remind everyone who enters the Tesla workplace that any discriminatory slurs – no matter the intent or who is using them – will not be tolerated.

What do corporate lawyers, political operatives, and right-wing groups have to do with the Indian Child Welfare Act? A whole lot. ICWA has been around for almost 40 years. It provides protections for Native American kids who are up for foster care or adoption and it says Native kids should be placed with extended family or stay with native communities whenever possible. It doesn’t seem terribly controversial on the face of it. But the child custody law has drawn the attention of groups who see the chance to undo ICWA as the first step into doing away with a whole chain of legislation around Native sovereignty, with huge implications for land use, water rights and gaming rights. In short, a successful legal challenge to this one law, which has now reached the steps of the Supreme Court, could mean a lot of money for a whole lot of non-Native people. “I always say that federal Indian law is the canary in the coal mine, like what the courts are willing to do to tribes. I think everyone should be concerned about and this case for this term, I think will be will be an important one to watch,” said Rebecca Nagle, independent journalist and host of the podcast “This Land,” which focuses on ICWA in its latest season.
