    Go to Mars, that’s good. Even better to go there. But all of this will require energy. Especially electricity. And on earth, the question now arises as to how to produce it. Like the earth, the sun and nuclear power each want to pull the blanket on themselves. Which of the two will win? Researchers have their idea.

    TOKYO (AP) — Toyota is suspending production at all 28 lines of its 14 plants in Japan starting Tuesday, because of a “system malfunction” at a domestic supplier, the automaker said Monday. Public broadcaster NHK TV and other Japanese media said a major Toyota supplier had been hit by a suspected cyberattack. No details were given. It was unclear when production would resume. The maker of the Prius hybrid and Camry sedan declined comment on the reports. A spokeswoman said the company did not have all the details. A system malfunction at a plant could possibly refer to power being down or other overall problems, but a cyberattack is one possibility. Toyota Motor Corp. apologized for inconveniencing its customers and promised to fix the supply glitch “as soon as possible.” Toyota and other automakers already are grappling with shortages of computer chips and other parts due to disruptions from the coronavirus pandemic. Some customers have been waiting months for their orders to be delivered. ___ Yuri Kageyama is on Twitter https://twitter.com/yurikageyama Copyright © 2022 The...
                 Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-GA-11) announced late last week that he has asked the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to increase the number of new C-130J aircraft, which are manufactured at Lockheed Martin’s facility in Marietta, Georgia. That Lockheed Martin factory, Loudermilk went on to say, employs 3,000 Georgia residents. Loudermilk wrote a letter last week to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and urged the DOD to increase the number of new C-130J aircraft in the Fiscal Year 2023-2028 budget request. In his letter, Loudermilk cited what he called “growing threats across the globe” as a good reason to continue manufacturing the C-130J. “The C-130 is the longest continuously running military production line in history. The current C-130J Super Hercules is the most capable tactical airlifter in the world. C-130J production is currently declining from 2020’s health rate of 24 plus aircraft per year down to a minimum 16 per year,” Loudermilk wrote. Exactly 380 suppliers across 36 states support nearly 30,000 direct and indirect jobs associated with the C-130J production line, resulting in $3.7 billion in economic impact,...
    MotorTrend is all-in on electrics this year. (Rivian) The magazine has picked the Rivian R1T pickup as its Truck of the Year following November's announcement that the Lucid Air is its Car of the Year. Each marks the first time a startup's first vehicle has received the awards, which is often featured in manufacturer advertising. Rivian's vehicles feature four independent electric motors that allow them to spin in place on loose surfaces.

    Ford has moved to halt production at its Mustang plant in Michigan days after state officials identified the facility as the source of gas leaks into various sewer systems, forcing several evacuations in the area.  Ford spokesperson T.R. Reid told the Detroit Free Press that production would be suspended at the company’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant, explaining, "We're not going to prioritize building vehicles this week.”  "There are higher priorities right now,” he added, noting that the automaker was working to help local residents who had evacuated, including by covering hotel costs, meals and personal items.  "People are being affected. Lives are being disrupted and we've got an obligation to try and help," Reid said, adding that some of those who evacuated were Ford employees, according to the Free Press.  Jill Greenberg, a spokesperson for the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, told the local news outlet Tuesday that Ford had plugged the leak after an estimated 1,400 gallons of gasoline were released.  Bob Holycross, vice president of sustainability, environment and safety engineering for Ford, confirmed Friday evening...
    Dubai (CNN)Rising temperatures and extreme weather events exacerbated by climate change are making farming conditions increasingly challenging and disrupting food distribution. But scientists in some of the world's driest places are coming up with solutions to boost local food production by introducing plants that thrive with less-fertile soil and seawater. In the Dubai desert, farmers must contend with intense heat, limited freshwater and sandy soil. Here, the International Center of Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) is transplanting and growing salt-loving superfoods in an effort to expand food diversity in the region. "Freshwater is becoming more and more scarce," explains Dionysia Angeliki Lyra, agronomist at the ICBA. "We have to focus on how we can utilize low-quality, saline water resources for food production." Growing superfoods in the desertDesert farming has existed for thousands of years, but not all desert plants provide the nutrition needed to feed the growing population. The ICBA, a not-for-profit initiative launched in the United Arab Emirates in 1999, embarked on a mission to find highly nutritious crops all over the world that could adapt to and survive in extreme...
    People visit Ford's all-electric SUV Mustang Mach-E at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, the United States, Nov. 22, 2019.Xinhua via Getty Images DETROIT – "Respect…." It was a simple statement by Ford Motor CEO Jim Farley acknowledging Tesla CEO Elon Musk's tweet saying the two companies were "the only American carmakers not to have gone bankrupt out of 1000's of car startups." Farley's retweet of Musk earlier this month was a jab at his Detroit rivals, while also recognizing what Tesla has been able to accomplish. Ford has often touted its survival of the Great Recession, after crosstown rivals General Motors and then-Chrysler, now a part of Stellantis, went bankrupt in 2009. It was also one of the latest examples of executives at legacy automakers showing Musk some appreciation. They've also adopted at least some of his company's strategies to catch up to Tesla's electric vehicle sales the world over. "What I take away from Tesla's success is that there's a huge market for EVs and they validated that," GM CEO Mary Barra said during an...
    Blow the hot and the cold The polar vortex that chilled Texas in mid-February broke the monotony of daily covid 19 statistics. A detailed analysis of the circumstances and responsibilities of the power system failure in one of the major US states has already begun in the media. We see the hot potato jump from the hands of politicians to those of the operators of the system, the thermal production units point out the fragility of wind turbines, and these return the ball to them because of the freezing of gas infrastructures. We will have to wait a little longer to distribute the responsibilities more calmly. But we can already wonder about the degree of tolerance of populations facing extreme events, climatic or not. Texas grabbed the headlines because of the apparent fragility of its electrical system. Yet it is relatively diversified: about half of production comes from natural gas, a quarter from coal, 10% from nuclear, 12% from wind and the rest from photovoltaics. It is true that on the environmental level it is not glorious, but the...
    I understand. What’s more, I anticipated it before writing this: there will always be a mamaguevo what will you tell me jalabolas of the regime. But things by name. Laughter cigars are joints. Penises are cocks and vaginas are pussies, those compadres would say. America must adapt and to back down in its ambition to install a puppet government of the White House, nothing more and nothing less than by orders of the international market. I think it is the first time that economic pragmatism has been so clearly seen in the history of imperial domination of Latin America. Nobody expected the play of MatureDirectly to the heart of capital: the absence of supply increased demand and almost led Venezuela to total collapse, the sudden death of the state; but we played in their market, in their sphere biased by the geographic context. Maduro opened with blood and fire commercial channels that they challenged the “domain”Maritime of the empire, and also strengthening political alliances that led to trade agreements with China, Turkey, Iran, Russia. The emerging powers aligned themselves, in...
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk says production for the company’s upcoming Roadster isn’t due to begin until “next year,” roughly two years after the car was initially set to enter production. Tesla announced its $200,000 Roadster back in 2017, when Musk said the car would start being built in 2020. In a tweet, Musk suggested that work on the car’s “Tri-motor drive system & advanced battery work” were to blame for the delay. Musk says that Tesla hopes to finish engineering this year, and to have a “release candidate design drivable in late summer.” Finishing engineering this year, production starts next year. Aiming to have release candidate design drivable late summer. Tri-motor drive system & advanced battery work were important precursors. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2021 The hope, however, is that whenever it does arrive, the Roadster will be a vehicle with formidable specs. When it was announced, Musk said that Roadster would be able to hit 620 miles on a single charge, and hinted at a top speed in excess of 250 mph. He also said that...
    “While achieving this goal has become more difficult,” the company wrote in its earnings statement, “delivering half a million vehicles in 2020 remains our target. Achieving this target depends primarily on quarter over quarter increases in Model Y and Shanghai production, as well as further improvements in logistics and delivery efficiency at higher volume levels.” Thanks to its strong sales and record deliveries, Tesla saw its revenue grow 39 percent YoY in Q3 and its operating income rise to a record $809 million en route to its fifth consecutive quarter of profitability. Construction on Tesla’s production plants is continuing on schedule. The Fremont plant’s capacity has been expanded to increase production of Model 3s and Model Ys to 500,000 units a year. Its Shanghai factory report that Model 3 production capacity has been increased to 250,000 vehicles a year and the upcoming Berlin-Brandenburg Gigafactory should be ready to begin production in 2021. The Tesla Semi is also slated for production beginning next year. Musk also expounded on the company’s limited release of its Full Self Driving beta system earlier this...
    BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Monday that 28-nanometre chips for mobile devices using the Beidou navigation system are in mass production, and mass manufacturing of 22-nanometre chips will soon kick off. China will build a complete industrial chain of chips, modules, boards, terminals, operation services for Beidou, Ran Chengqi, director general of the China Satellite Navigation Office, said at a press conference. In June, China successfully put into orbit its final Beidou satellite, completing a navigation network years in the making and setting the stage to challenge the U.S.-owned Global Positioning System (GPS).

    Need to stay updated on coronavirus news in Texas? Our evening roundup will help you stay on top of the day’s latest updates. Sign up here. A biotech production facility in College Station could begin manufacturing a COVID-19 vaccine as early as next year. As part of a $265 million contract with the federal government, the Texas A&M University System Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing — which is owned and operated by Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies — has been tapped to mass-manufacture a vaccine candidate that is still undergoing testing. That vaccine, which is being developed by the little-known Maryland company Novavax, is one of six candidates the federal government has put billions of dollars behind as part of its Operation Warp Speed, which is pursuing an aggressive timeline for mass-distributing a coronavirus vaccine. President Donald Trump, appearing Monday afternoon at a North Carolina Fujifilm facility where the vaccine candidate is being developed for clinical trials, praised the progress of the Novavax vaccine and of other therapeutics. “We will have it delivered in record time,” he said. If...
    The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a lot of things that are wrong in American society, including terrible leadership, a frail social safety net and a lack of investment in public goods.  But one that has particularly struck me is the way our socioeconomic structure has been taken over by the logic of efficiency over the logic of effectiveness. In the name of efficiency, we have focused heavily on keeping costs down in both our economy and our health system. Industry does this by developing global supply chains that take advantage of cheap third-world labor and the low cost of shipping and also by instituting just-in-time delivery of supplies to factories  The former puts us at the mercy of events on the other side of the world, and the latter leaves us with no inventory to tide us over until supplies resume. As we have seen, the result is that production can shut down over night, with no easy way to get it going again anytime soon. There is a similar pattern with health care. In the interest of cost efficiency,...
    On the International Space Station (ISS), astronauts can obtain supplies from Earth from a cargo spacecraft that I sawvisit the space station, which takes just six hours to arrive. But the journey time to Mars is at least eight months. And if you are on the red planet, you must do it alone. Scientists have been working to address this problem. They have been looking for ways for astronauts to produce their own clean water and grow their own food. And just as importantly, they ensure that any risk of contamination is reduced, to keep astronauts as safe and healthy as possible on long-duration missions. Clean water Drinking water is something many of us take for granted on Earth, but on space missions it is more difficult to come by. The ISS recycles much of its water using chemicals, but it still relies on considerable shipments of water from Earth. to give astronauts access to clean water. A project called BIOWYSE I hoped to find a solution to the water problem for long missions. The project looked for ways to...
    Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers has recently conceded: “In general, economic thinking has privileged efficiency over resilience, and it has been insufficiently concerned with the big downsides of efficiency.” Policy across the globe is therefore moving in a more overtly nationalistic direction to rectify this shortcoming. COVID-19 has accelerated a process that was well underway before it, spreading beyond U.S.-China-EU trade negotiations and into the world’s 50 largest economies. As much as many defenders of the old order lament this trend, it is as significant a shift as the dawn of the World Trade Organization (WTO) global trade era. Economists, politicians, and leading pundits are often tempted to see new economic patterns through the prisms of the past; we are therefore likely to hear that we’re back in an era of 19th-century mercantilism, or 1970s-style stagflation. But that misses the moment—the motives are different, and so are the outcomes. What we are experiencing is the realization by state planners of developed countries that new technologies enable a rapid ability to expand or initiate new and profitable production capacity closer...
