vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Elon Musk's Giant Battery Set for Testing in the Australian Outback #FACTS NOV. 23, 2017. Billionaire Elon Musk’s giant battery being built in the Australian outback will be energized in coming days and begin testing, indicating Tesla Inc. is on track to meet a 100-day self-imposed deadline to install the system.

Tesla power packs have now been fully installed on a site near a wind farm north of Adelaide and will be tested to ensure the battery meets standards laid down by the energy market operator, the South Australia state government said in a statement Thursday. "Congratulations to the Tesla crew and South Australian authorities who worked so hard to get this manufactured and installed in record time," Musk tweeted on Thursday.

The entrepreneur is building the system to help the state avert crippling electricity blackouts that have spurred a nationwide debate about security of energy supply in Australia. The futurist chief executive made a bet on Twitter in March that he could install a 100-megawatt storage facility within 100 days or it would be free, and the clock started ticking at the end of September when the contract was signed.

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Apple research gives a peek at its self-driving car plans #FACTS NOV. 22, 2017. Apple, which has been famously tight-lipped on its self-driving #vehicle research, has posted what looks like its first public #research on the subject, notes #Reuters The paper is listed on the public site #Arxiv often used by #researchers to get preliminary feedback before publishing in a final form. The report describes a new way to use #LiDAR called #VoxelNet That would make it easier for #autonomous #cars to not just spot the location of objects, but determine critical information like whether they're #pedestrians or #cyclists

While the scientific part of the paper is interesting, the most surprising part about it is that it exists at all. Until recently, Apple has kept most of its research in-house, but its approach can make it hard to attract the best #scientists and engineers who want their work published and peer-reviewed. In July, Apple finally took a step in that directly by publishing the Apple Machine Learning Journal. The paper in Arxiv, however, is its first external publication on self-driving cars.

LiDAR is great at figuring out the exact position of objects in 3D space, but they have a notoriously low resolution. In order to figure out exactly what the object is, vehicles must therefore also rely on other #sensors and #cameras. That adds costs and processing bottlenecks.

Apple's team has achieved "highly encouraging results" in using AI to examine the sparse LiDAR data alone and pick out distant pedestrians and cyclists. The researchers say they've achieved better results so far than other methods, something that could one day make self-driving cars both cheaper and safer. The research is still in the early phases, though, and hasn't yet been road-tested.

Apple chief #TimCook has called self-driving cars "the mother of all AI projects," and the research indeed shows how #autonomousdriving benefits from machine learning. The paper is also a sign that both AI and self-driving are challenging to a point that #Apple can no longer go it alone on research. #VEHICLENINFO #NINFONETWORK #FOODNINFO #APPLECAR #SELFDRIVING #SELFDRIVINGCAR #BMW #X5 #HUFFPOST #TESLA #SPACEX

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Uber paid hackers to cover up massive data breach #FACTS NOV. 22, 2017. Uber Technologies Inc paid hackers $100,000 to keep secret a massive breach last year that exposed the personal information of about 57 million accounts of the ride-service provider, the company said on Tuesday.

Discovery of the U.S. company’s cover-up of the incident resulted in the firing of two employees responsible for its response to the hack, said #DaraKhosrowshahi who replaced co-founder #TravisKalanick as CEO in August. "None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it," Khosrowshahi said in a blog post. 
The breach occurred in October 2016 but Khosrowshahi said he had only recently learned of it.

The hack is another controversy for Uber on top of sexual harassment allegations, a lawsuit alleging trade secrets theft and multiple federal criminal probes that culminated in Kalanick’s ouster in June.

The stolen information included names, email addresses and mobile phone numbers of Uber users around the world, and the names and license numbers of 600,000 U.S. drivers, Khosrowshahi said.

Uber passengers need not worry as there was no evidence of fraud, while drivers whose license numbers had been stolen would be offered free identity theft protection and credit monitoring, Uber said.

Two hackers gained access to proprietary information stored on GitHub, a service that allows engineers to collaborate on software code. There, the two people stole Uber’s credentials for a separate cloud-services provider where they were able to download driver and rider data, the company said.

A GitHub spokeswoman said the hack was not the result of a failure of GitHub’s security. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #UBER #GITHUB #WAYMO #HACKERS #BREACH #CAR #RIDESHARING #LONDON #LOSANGELES #NYC #TESLA #THEBORINGCOMPANY #SPACEX #CARLOVERS #INSTACARS #CARPORN #PAGANI #HUFFPOST #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #PEOPLEMAGAZINE #USWEEKLY TAXI

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - ASTON MARTIN NEW VANTAGE #FACTS NOV. 21, 2017. This all-new 2018 Vantage is a very important car for Aston Martin. It is not its signature vehicle, like the #DBSeries cars, named for #DavidBrown who saved the company from financial ruin in the mid-20th century. It is not their hypercar “halo” flagship, like the $2.5 million #Valkyrie developed as a #FormulaOne #racer for the road. But it has long been the company’s best-selling model, its bread and butter, its gateway point of entrée for consumers. It’s a six-figure sports car that epitomizes the brand’s delicate, almost alchemical, blend of performance, luxury, and beauty.

This Vantage raises the bar in all three areas. Enhanced speed comes courtesy of the growling twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, produced by Mercedes-Benz, which holds a 5 percent stake in the boutique British brand. Benz has a hand in the technology that underpins the new car as well, providing its digital dashboard and COMAND information and entertainment screens and interface. Interior indulgence comes courtesy of Aston’s talented craftspeople, who create wood and composite marquetry, knurl metal knobs, and handily “brogue” leather — piercing it in a constellation pattern, as on a wingtip shoe, to allow subtle sub-dermal contrasting colors to come through. And the new exterior design takes the Vantage’s sharp-nosed, flat-tailed bullet shape and makes it at once more sensuous and more muscular. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #FOODNINFO #ASTONMARTIN #ASTONMARTINVANTAGE #CARPORN #CARLOVERS #INSTACARS #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOST #HUFFPOSTGRAM #CNN #CNBC #LONDON #DAILYMAIL #ENEWS #PEOPLEMAGAZINE #USWEEKLY #FRANCE #ITALY #HYPERCAR #SUPERCAR #AUTOWEEK

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Uber To Buy Thousands Of Volvo SUVs In Big Push To Robot Taxi Future #FACTS NOV. 20, 2017. Don’t count #Uber out of the #selfdriving game yet.

Despite a problem-plagued year in which the program has been sued by rival #Waymo and lost the head of a program as a result, #Uber doubled down on its commitment to being a leader in bringing self-driving #cars to the streets — and soon.

On Monday, the #ridehailing company announced that it had entered into an agreement to purchase tens of thousands #VolvoXC90 SUVs, specifically modified for #autonomous driving, between 2019 to 2021.

Right now, Uber’s “best guess estimate” is that it will purchase around 24,000 vehicles, but that’s dependent on a lot of different factors, says #JeffMiller head of #Auto Alliances, at Uber. At 24,000 vehicles, the #FinancialTimes estimated the purchase agreement could be valued at over $1.9 billion. “It’s hard for us to pinpoint,” Miller said. “The whole #concept with the contract is that it can flex up and flex down based on how the technology is evolving and how the regulatory framework is evolving.” Uber intends to buy the base version of the #XC90 plug-in hybrid, the model that’s been part of its collaboration with #Volvo since 2015. The #models will come with some sensors and radar already installed. 
Uber will then have to spend additional money to install the rooftop camera and #LiDAR rig, as well as a computer in the trunk to process visual data and power the software that controls the vehicle. #VEHICLENINFO #NINFONETWORK #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOST #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC #LOSANGELES #CARLOVERS #SUPERCAR #HYPERCAR #TESLA #ELONMUSK

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Tesla flying car? Elon Musk teases 'special upgrade' of Roadster supercar #FACTS NOV. 20, 2017. Want to take your Tesla for a joyride ... through the air?

In a tease that would be utterly ludicrous if it had come from practically anyone else, Tesla CEO Elon Musk hinted Sunday that a "special upgrade" of the company's new Roadster supercar may be capable of briefly flying.

The first units of the Tesla Roadster, which Musk revealed Thursday at an event in California, are supposed to arrive in 2020 at a price of $250,000. He had already promised that the car would be the fastest production car of all time, featuring a top speed of more than 250 miles per hour.

But Musk said Sunday on Twitter that a "special upgrade package" could "enable it to fly short hops." It's "certainly possible," Musk said. "Just a question of safety. Rocket tech applied to a car opens up revolutionary possibilities." And Musk knows a thing or two about rockets. He is also CEO of SpaceX, which makes and flies rockets for commercial and government space ventures.
But the pursuit of a flying car would mark a turnabout for Musk, who has previously expressed skepticism about the technology.
"There is a challenge with flying cars in that they'll be quite noisy, the wind force generated will be very high," he said earlier this year at TED Talks.
And from a practical perspective: "If something's flying over your head and there's a whole bunch of flying cars going all over the place, that is not an anxiety-reducing situation," Musk said at the time. "You're thinking, 'Did they service their hubcap, or is it going to come off and guillotine me?'" #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #FOODNINFO #TESLA #ELONMUSK #CARLOVERS #SPACEX #THEBORINGCOMPANY #BORINGCOMPANY #FUTURISM #LONDON #AUSTRALIA #NYC #LOSANGELES #LEXUS #MODELS #TESLASEMI #CARPORN #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #HUFFPOST #NEWS #ENEWS #PEOPLEMAGAZINE #USWEEKLY #OKMAGAZINE #VOGUE #LATIMES

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - New York City's secret subway line with #antique cars is going back into service #FACTS NOV. 20, 2017. The #NewYorkCity #subway system is one of the most fascinating curiosities in a city full of mysteries. Miles of underground #track shrouded in darkness, littered with abandoned #stations and secret passageways — it's a common object of desire for the urban explorers among us.

And, occasionally, New York City acknowledges the delightful mystery surrounding its 24-hour #transportation system. The annual "Holiday Nostalgia" #trainline is a perfect example of this:

The train line, consisting of eight #vintage New York #subwaycars from several different eras, runs for a few weekends each year — from the Sunday after #Thanksgiving to the end of the year, only on Sundays. It costs the same $2.75 as any #subwayride

In 2017, the #holidaytrain is running on the F line between 2nd Av and #LexingtonAvenue / 63rd Street, and via the Q line between Lexington Avenue / 63rd Street and 96th Street on the #UpperEastSide

The schedule is slightly different for 2017 due to the two different lines the line is running on. According to the #MetropolitanTransitAuthority (MTA), the train "departs from the 2nd Avenue subway station on the F line at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. and from the 96th Street subway station on the Q line at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.. There's no running to the train given that no one's using the vintage subway line like an actual subway line. Subways in #NYC don't usually stand in a station for longer than a minute or two, but this one stops to pose for photos for at least a few minutes.

A lot of the fun is in the details. Like all the old advert, Some of the ads are for events long passed, like "I Am An American — Citizenship Day". And yes, Citizenship Day is a real holiday.

It takes place on September 17 every year and serves to commemorate the signing of the US Constitution (on September 17, 1787). The holiday was originally called "I Am An American Day," which was celebrated during the 1940s; it became "Citizenship Day" in the early 1950s. #FOODNINFO #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #VINTAGE #NYC #BUZZFEED #TESLA #LA

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Real-Life Iron Man Sets Record For Fastest Time In Jet Suit #FACTS NOV. 19, 2017. Talk about putting the pedal to the metal: A real-life Iron Man has just set a world record for fastest speed in a jet suit.

Richard Browning managed to whiz around a park in the English city of Reading in a jet suit he built himself. His maximum speed during the record-setting flight was 32 mph.

It was the culmination of a project three years in the making. It started when Browning decided he wanted to build his own flying suit.

At first, he tried gliding with wings and electric fans, before deciding it would be easier to just strap a jet engine to his body, according to Wired.com.

The current suit, called “Daedalus,” is a light exoskeleton attached to six gas turbines ― four mounted on the arms and two on the hips ― that have a combined thrust of 286 pounds.

As you might expect, the “Iron Man” suit has attracted lots of attention, especially from search-and-rescue agencies, military researchers and Hollywood producers, according to Channel News Asia. “In theory, you could have first responders with this equipment easily go a couple of miles quite low to the ground and get over any obstacle you want,” he told the website.

However, Browning admits the jet suit isn’t for everyone ― yet. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #IRONMAN #RICHARDBROWNING #DAEDALUS #LONDON #BBC #CNN #CNBC #FUTURISM #JET #JETSUIT #NASA #SCIENCE #COMICS #MARVEL #HUFFPOST #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC #LOSANGELES #GRAVITY #OPRAHMAGAZINE #PEOPLEMAGAZINE #VANITYFAIR

The current suit, called “Daedalus,” is a light exoskeleton attached to six gas turbines ― four mounted on the arms and two on the hips ― that have a combined thrust of 286 pounds. As you might expect, the “Iron Man” suit has attracted lots of attention, especially from search-and-rescue agencies, military researchers and Hollywood producers, according to Channel News Asia. “In theory, you could have first responders with this equipment easily go a couple of miles quite low to the ground and get over any obstacle you want,” he told the website. However, Browning admits the jet suit isn’t for everyone ― yet. #NINFONETWORK #vehicleninfo #FOODNINFO #entertainmentninfo #ironman #RICHARDBROWNING #DAEDALUS #LONDON #BBC #CNN #cnbc #futurism #jet #JETSUIT #NASA #SCIENCE #COMICS #MARVEL #huffpost #buzzfeed #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC #LOSANGELES #gravity #OPRAHMAGAZINE #peoplemagazine #VANITYFAIR

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Forget the Roadster and the Semi — Tesla’s fate still hinges on the Model 3 #FACTS NOV. 19, 2017. There was a lot of pomp and circumstance at SpaceX’s Hawthorne, California, headquarters for the big Tesla Semi truck unveiling. There was even a surprise cameo from the ghost of Tesla’s Christmas past: the second generation of the Roadster. But at no point did CEO Elon Musk mention the car on which the fate of his entire company still hinges: the Model 3.

It’s not totally shocking. After all, the Model 3 had its own party earlier this year. But since then, Tesla’s first high-volume, mass-market vehicle has hit a number of snags.

When Musk launched the Model 3 in July, the company was anticipating a production rate of 20,000 cars a month by the end of December. In the last quarter, though, Tesla produced only 260 Model 3s — about three cars a day. That’s well behind a normal pace of about one car per minute. Earlier this month, Tesla pushed back its target for volume production on the Model 3 — widely seen as crucial to the company’s long-term future — by about three months to fix production bottlenecks.

In all likelihood, the unveiling of the Semi truck and the Roadster was meant to achieve two outcomes: distract investors and Wall Street analysts from the Model 3’s production woes, while also recapturing some of the excitement and magic that helped propel Tesla to its current heights as one of the most valuable automakers in the US. “I do feel like the company needed to generate a little bit of excitement,” said Jessica Caldwell, executive director of industry analysis at Edmunds. “[Musk] needed a shiny new object to wave in front of everyone’s faces.” #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #FOODNINFO #ELONMUSK #TESLA #SPACEX #THEBORINGCOMPANY #FUTURISM #HUFFPOST #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC #LA #LOSNGELES #CAR #CARLOVERS #ROADSTER #SEMI #TESLASEMI #INSTACARS #LONDON #BERLIN #BRITAIN #CNN #CNBC #BENZ #PORSCHE #LEXUS

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - One of Tesla's first Semi truck buyers is a Canadian grocery chain #FACTS NOV. 19, 2017. Tesla only just unveiled its Semi electric truck, but it's already lining up honest-to-goodness customers -- and we don't just mean for testing, either. Canadian grocery chain Loblaws has pre-ordered 25 of the giant EVs to haul food to its stores across the country. That's a larger purchase than Walmart (which ordered 15 for its test), and no small commitment when Tesla hasn't even revealed the (likely high) price. It may seem odd for Tesla to score one of its most important orders beyond the US, but it makes more sense knowing Loblaws' strategy.

The supermarket giant recently committed to a 30 percent reduction in its overall carbon footprint by 2030, and it sees electric trucks playing an important role. It estimates that pulling diesel from its vehicles would be the equivalent of pulling 20,000 cars from the road. Tesla's Semi would clearly help toward that goal, and it might be a better option than existing electric trucks (like one Loblaws bought from BYD) if it lives up to claims of faster trips and greater safety.

This is very unlikely to be Tesla's largest order, but it gives a sense of who its early customers are likely to be: well-heeled companies that have plenty of cargo to transport and pressure to fulfill environmental commitments. The real challenge comes after that: Tesla will have to persuade companies that either don't have a huge budget or are only interested in how electric trucks will affect their bottom line. Tesla has anticipated that to some extent (it's promising $200,000 in fuel savings for every 1 million miles), but success is far from guaranteed. #FOODNINFO #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #LOBLAWS #CANADA #TORONTO #FOODANDWINE #EEEEEATS #WHOLEFOODS #AMAZON #FOODNETWORK #CHEFSOFINSTAGRAM #CHEFLIFE #GROCERY #TESLA #ELONMUSK #SPACEX #THEBORINGCOMPANY #FUTURISM #CARLOVERS #INSTACARS #PAGANI #ENEWS #CNBC #NYC #LAEATS #RECIPE

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - First-of-Its-Kind Satellite Launches to Track Earth's Weather Like Never Before #FACTS NOV. 18, 2017. The first in a series of four advanced polar-orbiting #satellites launched to space on its third try early Saturday (Nov. 18), turning its watchful eye to improving the accuracy of #weather forecasts and Earth observations.

The new Joint Polar Satellite System-1 satellite, or JPSS-1, launched into orbit atop a United Launch Alliance-built #Delta II #rocket at 4:47 a.m. EST (0947 GMT), lighting up the predawn #sky over its Vandenberg #AirForce Base in California. The successful liftoff came after two scrubbed #launch attempts earlier this week due to high winds and boats inside the launch range restriction zone offshore. "Things went absolutely perfect today," #NASA launch manager #OmarBaez said after the JPSS-1 launch. "The nation's got another wonderful weather asset up in #spaceX

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in partnership with NASA, operates both #geostationary satellites, like GOES-16, which stay in a fixed spot over Earth as they orbit, as well as polar-orbiting satellites, like Suomi NPP, which launched in 2011. Suomi NPP was originally intended to test the technology in store for JPSS-1, officials said at a news conference Sunday (Nov. 12), but it has become a valuable #weather and Earth analysis satellite. "This is huge," #GregMandt director of the #JPSS program, said during live commentary just after the dazzling liftoff of JPSS-1. "JPSS 1 is part of a national polar #orbiting weather satellite program, and we really need this because 85 percent of all the date from our weather forecast models come from this series of weather satellite. We're looking forward to getting good data from this #satellite 
JPSS-1 will follow in #Suomi NPP's path — literally — by chasing its precursor around in the same polar #orbit boasting "instruments so precise that they can measure the temperature to better than a tenth of a degree from the surface of the #Earth all the way to the edge of space," Mandt said during the Nov. 12 news conference. The #spacecraft will pass around the globe every 90 minutes. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Honda Recalls 900,000 Odyssey Minivans After Injuries #FACTS NOV. 18, 2017. Honda is recalling 900,000 Odyssey minivans after receiving injury reports related to a problem that causes second-row seats to tip forward.

The recall, announced Saturday, includes vehicle models from 2011 to 2017. Of the affected minivans, 800,000 were sold in the U.S.

Honda said it had received 46 reports of injuries linked to the vehicle issue, in which the second-row seats fall forward if they are not properly latched. The company has offered instructions on its website on how to correctly latch the seats after adjusting them. “If a second row seat is not properly latched after adjusting it side-to-side or reinstalling a removed seat, the seat may tip forward during moderate to heavy braking, increasing the risk of injury to an occupant,” Honda said in a statement. “This issue will not occur if a seat is properly latched.” Honda recommends customers affected by the recall take immediate action to have their vehicles repaired for free. #VEHICLENINFO #NINFONETWORK #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #FOODNINFO #HONDA #ODYSSEY #HONDAODYSSEY #CARS #MINIVAN #PORSCHE #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOST #CNN #CNBC #CELEBRITIES #CARLOVERS #NYC #LOSANGELES #NISSAN #SUPERCAR #HYPERCAR #LONDON #BERLIN #MERCEDES #TESLA #THEBORINGCOMPANY #ELONMUSK #FUTURISM

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - 6.3 million Americans are 90 days late on their auto loan payments #FACTS NOV. 18, 2017. A rising number of Americans are unable to make the monthly payments on their car or truck loans and are in danger of having their vehicles repossessed, according to data released this week by the #NewYorkFederalReserve

There are 6.3 million Americans who are 90 days late — or more — on their auto loan payments, up about 400,000 from a year ago. When someone gets so far behind on their payments, they typically end up losing their vehicle.

The #delinquency rate on auto loans has been steadily rising since 2011, a red flag at a time when the unemployment rate has been falling. The unemployment rate is 4.1%, the lowest level since 2000. As more and more Americans get jobs and income coming in, it should be easier for them to pay their bills. But the rise in auto loan delinquencies is a reminder that millions are still struggling to make ends meet.

Many of the people who can't pay their car loans have #badcredit scores — lower than 620 on an 800-point scale. They don't have many options to get money to buy a new or #usedcar and often end up getting a subprime auto loan that comes with an interest rate of 15% to 20%. Some have started to compare what's happening in the auto loan market to the home mortgage crisis that helped trigger the Great Recession and financial crisis of 2008-09. Many of the same issues are back: Lenders appear to have lowered their standards to give people car loans who probably should not qualify or should not be getting such a large loan. For example, a man in Alabama was able to use his shotgun to cover most of the down payment when he took out a car loan.

Stringent regulations put in place after the financial crisis have made it harder to get a home mortgage, but most of the rules don't apply to auto finance companies. It's telling that delinquency rates for home mortgages and credit cards have been steadily falling since 2010, while delinquency rates for auto loans and student loans have been rising. #VEHICLENINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #NINFONETWORK #FOODNINFO #AUTOLOANS #PAGANI #SUPERCAR #HYPERCAR #CARLOVERS #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOST #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - A Navy pilot drew a penis in the sky. It’s not the first time something like this has been investigated. #FACTS NOV. 17, 2017. Residents of #Washington state turned their eyes to a clear blue #sky Thursday and found themselves staring at a cartoonish rendering of male genitalia, sketched in smoke by at least one Navy EA-18G Growler #jet

The image stretched hundreds of feet high over the #OkanoganHighlands based on photographs shared on social media. It has spawned a full #Navy investigation, with a senior officer, Vice Adm. #MikeShoemaker promising to examine the issue fully and respond. “The #American people rightfully expect that those who wear the Wings of Gold exhibit a level of maturity commensurate with the missions and #aircraft with which they’ve been entrusted,” said Shoemaker, who oversees #naval air operations, in a statement released by the service. “Naval #aviation continually strives to foster an environment of dignity and respect. Sophomoric and immature antics of a sexual nature have no place in Naval aviation today.” The unit involved, #ElectronicAttackSquadron 130 of Naval Air Station #WhidbeyIsland flies a two-person variant of the F/A-18 Super Hornet and specializes in electronic warfare. The #aircrew responsible has not been identified.

The #DefenseDepartment has placed heightened emphasis on sexual harassment and sexual assault in the ranks. And while it’s not immediately clear what this investigation will yield, it’s evident that the Navy is taking it very seriously.

This is not the first time a #military #pilot has drawn similar images. As the Drive pointed out, a #RoyalAirForce jet drew what appeared to be a penis in the sky over Scotland in 2014. The #RAF later concluded the suggestive smoke trails were caused by a pilot circling in a holding pattern while waiting to land.

In the #UnitedStates the Navy’s elite flight demonstration squadron, #theBlueAngels also was cited in an investigation released in 2014 for painting a giant penis on the roof of a trailer at its winter training home in El Centro, Calif, where pilots could see it from above. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #SPACEX #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOST #NYC #LA #CARS

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Danica Patrick to end racing career at next year's Indy 500 #FACTS MOV. 17, 2017. Danica Patrick has known for at least a month that she will end her career next season at the Indianapolis 500, a decision that will bring her full circle and return her one last time to the storied track that made her famous.

Discussing her decision with The Associated Press, Patrick was giddy with excitement and thrilled at the chance to take one more spin around Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

When it came time to announce her plans to the world, with her mother, father, sister, brother-in-law, boyfriend and support team watching from the back of a crowded room at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday afternoon, Patrick broke down in tears.

She paused several times to compose herself to announce that she will race only in the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 and then she will walk away from the sport where success was elusive even as she became one of the most recognizable female athletes in the world.

Patrick told AP it took her many months to come to the realization her career is all but over. Once she accepted it, the idea of ending her career at Indy popped into her head. She told her agent, and she's been working on putting together "The Danica Double" over the last several weeks.

Patrick is the only woman to have led laps in both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. Patrick ran the Indy 500 from 2005 through 2011. Her highest finish was third in 2009, and she was the first woman to lead laps in the race when she paced the field for 19 trips around the Brickyard as a rookie.

Patrick was highly marketable early in her career even though wins were rare. She won the pole for the Daytona 500 in 2013, but finished 24th in the standings the last two seasons. She won her only IndyCar race in 2008, in Japan. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #DANICAPATRICK #GODADDY #RACING #SPEEDWAY #INDY500 #NASCAR #PORSCHE #LEXUS #CARS #CARLOVERS #RACECAR #CELEBRITIES #ENEWS #EARNHARDT #FORMULA1 #HUFFPOST #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #DANICA #NYC #LOSANGELES #INDIANAPOLIS #INDIANAPOLIS500 #daytona ##DAYTONA500

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Metal recyclers prepare for electric car revolution #FACTS NOV. 17, 2017. #Recycling companies are honing processes to extract metals from old batteries more cheaply and efficiently so they can capitalize on an expected shortfall in materials such as cobalt and #lithium when sales of electric cars take off.

The main obstacle recyclers face now is a shortage of spent #batteries to recycle to make their technology cost-effective, but those at the forefront of the industry are confident the supply, and profits, will come. "The value of lithium carbonate and natural or synthetic graphite has doubled or tripled in the last three or four years, becoming the most valuable materials besides cobalt in the automotive battery," #AlbrechtMelber co-managing director of German recycling firm #Accurec said. "There are big values that can be recycled in the future." Electric vehicle sales are expected to pass 14 million a year by 2025 from less than a million now, fuelling a surge in the consumption of battery materials.

Data specialist Benchmark Mineral Intelligence predicts the industry will need an extra 30,000 tonnes of cobalt and 81,000 tonnes of lithium a year to meet demand by 2021.

Commodity research group CRU expects 11,600 tonnes of cobalt to come from recycling in 2021, up from 7,110 a year now, and 24,900 tonnes by 2026, accounting for 9.7 percent and 17.9 percent of the total market supply respectively.

For now, lithium usually ends up in waste slag, which can be used as a building material, or is thrown away. But with the price of all these metals rising, that picture may change. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #ELECTRICCAR #PORSCHE #GM #TOYOTA #LEXUS #BMW #AUDI #CARLOVERS #CARPORN #INSTACARS #SPACEX #THEBORINGCOMPANY #NEWS #CNN #CNBC #ITALY #CHINA #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOST #HUFFPOSTGRAM

Metal recyclers prepare for electric car revolution #FACTS NOV. 17, 2017. #Recycling companies are honing processes to extract metals from old batteries more cheaply and efficiently so they can capitalize on an expected shortfall in materials such as cobalt and #lithium when sales of electric cars take off. The main obstacle recyclers face now is a shortage of spent #batteriesto recycle to make their technology cost-effective, but those at the forefront of the industry are confident the supply, and profits, will come. "The value of lithium carbonate and natural or synthetic graphite has doubled or tripled in the last three or four years, becoming the most valuable materials besides cobalt in the automotive battery," #albrechtmelberco-managing director of German recycling firm #Accurec said. "There are big values that can be recycled in the future." Electric vehicle sales are expected to pass 14 million a year by 2025 from less than a million now, fuelling a surge in the consumption of battery materials. Data specialist Benchmark Mineral Intelligence predicts the industry will need an extra 30,000 tonnes of cobalt and 81,000 tonnes of lithium a year to meet demand by 2021. Commodity research group CRU expects 11,600 tonnes of cobalt to come from recycling in 2021, up from 7,110 a year now, and 24,900 tonnes by 2026, accounting for 9.7 percent and 17.9 percent of the total market supply respectively. For now, lithium usually ends up in waste slag, which can be used as a building material, or is thrown away. But with the price of all these metals rising, that picture may change. #NINFONETWORK #vehicleninfo #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #ELECTRICCAR #PORSCHE #gm #toyota #LEXUS #BMW #AUDI #CARLOVERS #carporn #INSTACARS #SPACEX #THEBORINGCOMPANY #news #CNN #cnbc #italy #CHINA #buzzfeed #HUFFPOST #HUFFPOSTGRAM

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - Tesla unveils the new Roadster #FACTS NOV. 16, 2017. Tesla has unveiled a new Roadster, the new version of its original sports car. It’s the fastest production car ever made, according to Elon Musk, with speeds of just 1.9 seconds for 0 to 60 4.2 seconds for 0 to 100. It can handle a quarter mile in 8.9 seconds. “This is the base model,” Musk said, then went on to mention that its top speed is above 250 mph. and it has a 200 kWh battery pack that offers 630 miles of highway driving range.

It’s also a 2 by 2 four-seater, and it’s available in 2020 starting at $200,000, with the first 1,000 sold being Founder’s Series models that will retail for $250,000 apiece. Which is a steal for the fastest production car ever.

Understandably, the crowd was in awe when Musk revealed the new Roadster, which has a look inside and out that owes a lot to classic sports car design. The car also ripped up the runway at the hangar where the event was held, before pulling to a stop and being flanked by the two new Tesla Semi trucks on either side. #VEHICLENINFO #NINFONETWORK #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #FOODNINFO #TESLA #ELONMUSK #CARLOVERS #HUFFPOST #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #INSTACARS #BENZ #AUDI #SEDAN #SUV #LONDON #ENEWS #PEOPLEMAGAZINE #THEBORINGCOMPANY #SPACEX #TESLASEMI #TESLAROADSTER #PAGANI #FARADAYMOTORS #SUPERCAR #HYPERCAR #BENTLEY #LUXURYCAR

vehicleninfo's Instagram Photo - APPLE CARPLAY AND ANDROID AUTO ARE BRINGING MORE FEATURES TO THE MASSES #FACTS NOV. 16, 2017. Driving the 2018 Hyundai Accent is proof that the idea of basic transportation has evolved. Like its sister vehicle, the 2018 Kia Rio, the 2018 Accent offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, two apps that are bringing new features and in-car connectivity to more consumers across a wide range of segments, including entry-level vehicles bought primarily by price-conscious customers.

In addition to the 2018 Hyundai Accent and 2018 Kia Rio, a number of vehicles from other automakers have eschewed built-in navigation systems. Instead, they rely on Android Auto or Apple CarPlay as the center piece of the multimedia experience. Even if this is a cost-cutting measure, it’s one that doesn’t come with much repercussions because you gain access to a wide range of apps including Google Maps, Waze, and Spotify on the car’s main screen by merely having a compatible smartphone.

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are the democratization of features once unavailable to affordable vehicles. Just a few years ago, you’d needed to move up to at least a compact car to get features such as navigation and a USB port. However, now that USB ports are standard in many vehicles, your mobile device can be fully integrated with your vehicle and give you access to features such as navigation and music apps with minimal distraction. 
Expect an increasing number of cars to get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as automakers debut updated versions of their infotainment systems, keeping everyone well connected. #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNINFO #ENTERTAINMENTNINFO #CARPORN #APPLECARPLAY #CARPLAY #ANDROID #ANDROIDAUTO #PORSCHE #TESLA #ELONMUSK #HUFFPOST #BUZZFEED #HUFFPOSTGRAM #NYC #LOSANGELES #CARLOVERS #LONDON #BBC #DAILYMAIL #TIMEMAGAZINE #PEOPLEMAGAZINE #BMW #LEXUS #SUPERCAR #HYPERCAR #AUDI #INSTACARS
