Not enough charging stations has and continues to be a problem in Canada, and I suspect will be a problem for some time to come.A coming UK problem will be the lack of infrastructure to provide sufficient 'charging stations' to enable mass charging of these vehicles simultaneously and the cables etc. to activate them.
Has that become a problem in Canada?
To the vast majority of people they are zip tiesI do wonder why the media refers to them as zip ties.
As was pointed out, they are flexible handcuffs. They are for immobilising quickly large amounts of prisoners or hostages.
Suddenly becomes a lot less funny when you look at it like that.
I bet a pound to a pinch that it was expressly set up so that Dipshit Donny could "prove" that he's not racist. Although he showed his true colours when John Lewis died and Dipshit Donny refused to go to his funeral, even tweeting that he (John Lewis) wasn't all that remarkable.Why do you think a photo op with Trump and 30(ish) black men/women proves anything about whether he is racist or not?
There's a photo of me with my tongue down the throat of a fat bird; doesn't mean that I like Fat People in general.
In normal times one would dismiss this as fantasy, something no honest, law-abiding, decent president would ever even consider doing, because it would be immoral. With Trump, however, whenever someone says he will do the crazy, you can be pretty sure he'll do it. The corrupt, small-handed wannabe dictator that he is.Those golf rounds and private jets won't pay for themselves.
'The last days of Donald Trump’s presidency have been nothing short of chaotic – so far filled with inciting an insurrection, impeachments and a refusal to attend his successor Joe Biden’s January 20 inauguration.
'As if that weren’t enough for the history books, however, the 74-year-old’s allies have collected huge amounts of money for access to the outgoing President from those seeking pardons before he leaves office, a bombshell new report by The New York Times has detailed.
'The “ad hoc” system – said to be run by the President’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner – supposedly bypasses the usual “intensive justice department review process intended to identify and vet the most deserving recipients from among thousands of clemency applications,” the paper reports.
'White House sources told CNN that Mr Trump will issue 100 pardon and commutations on his final full day in office on Tuesday, local time.
'Presidential pardons, while not implying innocence, are intended to show mercy to deserving recipients, setting aside any punishment and restoring civil rights lost to a convicted criminal.
'Yet, like almost everything in the last four years, they’re a power that’s been taken to the extreme by Mr Trump, who has instead rewarded them to his personal and political allies, and even, pre-emptively, to his own children.

The Chinese government is pushing for industry standards on battery pack design / location / accessibility so it can implement 'battery swap stations' - rather than wait 90 minutes for a partial charge, 10 minutes and your battery is swapped with a fresh one.This is a complex issue however, as when and where charging should be taking place may be something that will evolve as technology changes. As batteries increase in capacity, the location of charging stations will matter less. As charging times become quicker, people can spend less time charging their cars and it will be more and more like filling up with hydrocarbon liquid fuel (e.g. gasoline or diesel).

And also because every military vehicle is a tank and everything that goes bang is an AK47
To me they’re ‘cable ties’.
Until they are formed into ‘plasticuffs’.
Which is what these now are.
Oh mate! Google translate has badly let you down this time.Technology plays it part, by insulating the powerful and the Intelligensia, from the harshness of the world and you see that with its promotion of minority interest causes. The societal process around technology has also massively empowered a large minority of individuals at a level below, but that process has also slowly atomised wider society as a whole.
So I think Hoffer is wrong. Because the underlying point remains, that the world outside of our shiny borders is still very harsh and is nothing as rosy as some have, inside the borders without cash. So one could argue, its actually the Empowered people who have gone back to a primitive and infantile state, by assuming that the globalist elites inside governments can retain full control.
Perhaps the rise of populism is a sub-conscious defence mechanism for many people, to metaphorically reform the line, before the next attack...
Atomisation has increased fear and if the State won't promote the group and increasingly acts like a Board of Directors(tories) or HR Department(labour). People will look to reform the group themselves, with varying degrees of failure, but I don't see the process stopping alltogether.
Okey dokey. If we are showing images "proving" Mister Trump is not a racist, how about this one "proving" Hitler wasn't a racist either...Has nobody here heard about John Sullivan? Antifa started everything on the 6th. And as for Trump being racist..
Moral Hazard was until I read that, entirely absent from this debate..... Same with US Politics, you introduce a new progressive value system and then start to bolt on hate speech laws and even introduce censorship and the unintended consequences lead to bad outcomes like Trump or Riots and the people who created those conditions are the ones who abrogate responsibility to the deplorables.Some good news, the fightback against big tech is starting:
Parler is suing Google for breach of contract in closing them down in 24 hours when the contract states 30 days
Rumble is suing Google for 2 Bn for deliberately putting Rumble videos below YouTube videos in their search engine - this is more twisted than it sounds because by doing this google./youtube is financially benefitting to the detriment of Rumble. If you search Funny Dog video Rumble it will automatically come up with youtube videos
Can you please explain why this is ‘good’ news and not merely ‘news’?
Car companies are talking about being able to charge your car in well under 20 minutes within a few years. Some are saying 5 minutes. These are with 800 volt chargers and liquid cooled cables.The Chinese government is pushing for industry standards on battery pack design / location / accessibility so it can implement 'battery swap stations' - rather than wait 90 minutes for a partial charge, 10 minutes and your battery is swapped with a fresh one.
China is making a push to support swappable battery technology that could cut electric vehicle refuelling times down to minutes rather than hours.thenextweb.com
I think supplying 60Kwhr of charge in 10 minutes is going to be a very specialised operation that will happen in very few charging centres.Car companies are talking about being able to charge your car in well under 20 minutes within a few years. Some are saying 5 minutes. These are with 800 volt chargers and liquid cooled cables.
If you can go from say a 20% charge to an 80% charge in 10 minutes, that's not radically different from filling up your car with liquid fuel today. You can twiddle your thumbs for 10 minutes at a charging station that's little different from today's gas (petrol) station once or twice a week without a huge degree of inconvenience.
Given the above, there will be no practical reason to want to be swapping batteries on normal cars in future. It might make sense for certain types of fleet vehicles, but for normal cars there's no point to it if batteries can be charged rapidly.
Did you miss Ginsburg's comment that the president doesn't stop being the president his last year in office?Did you miss the whole "let's appoint a Supreme Court Judge in the last month before the inauguration"? Or McConnell's "let's refuse to hear any evidence that might not sound good" during the first impeachment? What about "let's refuse to acknowledge the result of a democratic election, just because we lost"?
In my 36-year tenure in the United States Senate — nearly half of it as chairman or ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee — I presided or helped preside over nine nominees to the Supreme Court, from both Republican and Democratic presidents. That's more than anyone else alive today.
In every instance we adhered to the process explicitly laid out in the Constitution: The president has the constitutional duty to nominate; the Senate has the constitutional obligation to provide advice and consent. It is written plainly in the Constitution that both presidents and senators swear an oath to uphold and defend.
As much as I think Trump is a racist (see: Trump Snr & Trump Jnr refusing to rent to black people for one example), I think that there will be black people who think he is not racist.Just like every black person in the US disagrees with Mister Trump not being a racist (even if they do smile for him - he is dangerously deranged after all).
