DETROIT – President Joe Biden’s visit last week to a General Motors plant that produces the GMC Hummer electric pickup has caused a noticeable increase in bookings for the truck, the automaker said on Tuesday.

Duncan Aldred, global head of GMC, said bookings for the vehicle were up to a seven-fold increase from an average day, with traffic to the brand’s website increasing by around 230%. He said the event led this month to record the most bookings for the Hummer, including an SUV version, aside from when the vehicles debuted separately.

“It just shows that intrigue, interest and willingness to buy from customers remains very high,” Aldred told reporters in a briefing Tuesday.

Aldred declined to disclose the specific number of reservations, which require a refundable deposit of $ 100. He said the automaker had more than 125,000 “hand lifters” who requested information about the vehicle on its website. He hopes to convert “most of them” into buyers.

Biden’s visit on Wednesday included a tour of the factory as well as the commander-in-chief zooming in the truck with GM CEO Mary Barra outside the factory. Biden also made several comments favorable to the promotion of the vehicle during a speech at the facility, including calling it “one hell of a vehicle.”

Aldred confirmed on Tuesday that GM plans to start shipping a special “Edition 1” version of the vehicle for around $ 113,000 by mid-December. That delay would mean the Detroit automaker has delivered the new flagship truck on time since its unveiling in October 2020.

“It really culminates on what has been an incredible two-year trip. It’s the fastest program ever achieved by General Motors,” Aldred said. “Not only is it a monumental effort, but considering that it’s not a vehicle, it’s the world’s first supertruck, that’s a pretty incredible achievement.”

But the vehicles will have slightly less electric range than initially expected at 329 miles, down 6% from around 350 miles.

Aldred cited the amount of features in the “Edition 1” models as the reasons for the inferior range. He alluded to less equipped versions of the vehicle having longer range in the years to come.

Much of last week’s event at GM’s Factory Zero was aimed at promoting bipartisan infrastructure investment and jobs law and Biden’s Build Back Better law, which includes tax incentives of up to ‘to $ 12,500 per vehicle to stimulate consumer demand for electric vehicles.

A man from Napoleonville died Saturday night while riding his off-road motorcycle, soldiers said.

Ray Gilton, 35, died in the Highway 1 crash, state police said.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Gilton, who was riding a KTM off-road motorcycle, was heading south on the shoulder to south of LA Hwy 1 at high speed. At the same time, a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado was driving north on LA Hwy 1 and began to turn left onto Mathew Street. Gilton failed to stop, struck the side of the Chevrolet and was thrown.

Gilton was not wearing a DOT approved helmet and suffered fatal injuries. He was declared dead at the scene by the Assumption Parish coroner’s office. The driver of the Chevrolet was properly restrained and sustained minor injuries.

A toxicological sample was taken from Gilton and submitted for analysis. The driver of the Chevrolet provided a voluntary breath sample that did not reveal any alcohol detected. This accident is still under investigation.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, motorcyclists are 29 times more likely than vehicle occupants to die in an accident. Making good choices while riding a motorcycle, such as never driving while impaired, obeying all traffic laws, and wearing a DOT approved helmet can often mean the difference between life and death.

Troop C investigated 37 fatal accidents that killed 47 people in 2021.

Sailors have circled the high seas for centuries now, but what could be found beneath the sunny ocean surface has remained a mystery until much more recently. In fact, it wasn’t until 1875, during the Challenger Expedition, that humanity had its first concrete idea of ​​the true depth of the ocean.

Today’s graphic, another fantastic piece from xkcd, is a unique and entertaining look at everything from the ice-encrusted shore of Lake Superior to the darkest, inhospitable trench (which today bears the name of the expedition which discovered it for the first time).

The graph is full of detail, so we’ll only highlight a few points of interest.

Deep Thoughts with Lake Baikal

Deep in Siberia, adjoining a mountainous part of the Mongolian border, is one of the most remarkable bodies of water on the planet: Lake Baikal. There are a number of qualities that distinguish Lake Baikal.

Depth: Baikal, located in a huge continental fault, is the deepest lake in the world at 1,642 m (5,387 feet). This extreme depth contains a lot of fresh water. In fact, it is estimated that 22% of all fresh water in the world is found in the lake.

Age: Baikal (which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site) is estimated to be over 25 million years old, making it the oldest lake on the planet.

Clarity: Interestingly, the water in the lake is exceptionally clear. In winter, visibility can extend over 30 m (98 ft) below the surface.

Biodiversity: The unique ecosystem of Lake Baikal is home to thousands of plant and animal species. In fact, over 80% of these species are endemic, which means that they are unique to this region.

Who is Alvin?

Since 1964, a diligent research submersible named Alvin has helped us better understand the deep ocean. Alvin explored the wreck of the RMS Titanic in 1986 and helped confirm the existence of black smokers (one of the strangest ecosystems in the world).

Although most of the ship’s components have been replaced and improved over the years, it is still in use today. In 2020, Alvin received an $ 8 million upgrade and is now able to explore 99% of the ocean floor.

We know more about the surface of Venus than the ocean floor. The potential for discovery is enormous.– Anna-Louise Reysenbach, professor of microbiology, PSU

The deepest point of the ocean

The deepest point in the ocean is the Marianne Trench, at 11,034 meters (36,201 feet).

This trench is located in the Pacific Ocean, near Guam and the namesake of the trench, the Mariana Islands. While the trench is the most extreme example of ocean depths, relative to distance at surface level, its depth is shorter than Manhattan.

Obviously, the context of distance to the surface is very different from that of vertical distance, but it is a reminder of how narrow the “explorable” band of the Earth’s surface is.

Polymetallic nodules

The ancient Greek word, ábyssos, roughly means “bottomless and unfathomable chasm”. If there is a bottom (the abyssopelagic zone comprises about 75% of the ocean floor), the enormous scale of this ecosystem is certainly unfathomable.

Objectively, the abyssal plain is not the prettiest part of the ocean. It’s almost featureless and doesn’t have the plume of a coral reef, for example, but there are still some very compelling reasons why we can’t wait to explore it. Resource companies are primarily interested in polymetallic nodules, which are essentially manganese-rich formations scattered on the seabed.

Manganese is already essential in steel production, but demand is also seeing a substantial increase in the rapidly growing market for electric vehicles. The first company to find a cost-effective way to harvest nodules from the ocean floor could reap a significant windfall.

Baby drill, drill

Demand for resources can force humans into very inhospitable places, and in the case of Deepwater Horizon, we have chased oil to a depth even beyond the famous Mariana Trench.

Drilling this far below the surface is a complicated undertaking, and when the drilling rig was commissioned in 2001, it was hailed as an engineering marvel. To date, Deepwater Horizon holds the record for the deepest offshore hole ever made.

After the infamous rig explosion and the spill that followed in 2010, this record depth for drilling could stand the test of time.

A 25-year-old man died Tuesday after being struck by two vehicles while walking along Dale Evans Parkway in Apple Valley.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday did not disclose the identity of the deceased man pending notification of next of kin.

The Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station reported that at approximately 7:43 p.m. Tuesday, deputies and staff from the Apple Valley Fire Protection District and American Medical Response responded to a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian.

Sheriff officials said the collision happened on Dale Evans Parkway, near the Quantico Road intersection. Online maps show the area near Lenny Brewster Park.

Upon arrival, MPs determined that a white Chevrolet truck was heading north on Dale Evans Parkway as it approached Quantico Road when it collided with the man, who was walking in the northbound lane of the same. pavement.

That’s why Saab is for sale again https://corvettec5.com/thats-why-saab-is-for-sale-again/ Mon, 15 Nov 2021 23:46:00 +0000 https://corvettec5.com/thats-why-saab-is-for-sale-again/ Saab as an automaker has seen tremendous ups and downs; the Turbo became an icon alongside the slant-nose 911 with a more specialized audience, but when the Swedish brand became owned by General Motors in the 2000s, it began to offer a more mundane range of sedans and cars. station wagons, some with rather powerful […]]]>

Saab as an automaker has seen tremendous ups and downs; the Turbo became an icon alongside the slant-nose 911 with a more specialized audience, but when the Swedish brand became owned by General Motors in the 2000s, it began to offer a more mundane range of sedans and cars. station wagons, some with rather powerful engines. Notably, the top-of-the-line 9-3 models are quite attractive sporty offerings like the 9-3 Aero, which brought a Swedish threat to the roads, especially when they are in black.

The 9-5 updated the brand’s best-selling vehicle, but didn’t do much for sales. So in 2010 he found his way to Spyker ownership. before selling to NEVS, an acronym for National Electric Vehicle Sweden. NEVS was born from the ashes of Saab by acquiring the rights to use Saab designs for their cars as well as owning their manufacturing facilities. But the NEVS deal was not as straightforward as it first appeared, behind the new owners was a large Chinese conglomerate called Evergrande and they ran into financial problems.

The Saab name won’t see the light of day, but what it left behind was changing hands.

Conglomerates in the automotive industry

The automotive industry is no stranger to large conglomerates with several brands and close to monopolies. The former owners of Saab, General Motors, are a shining example of this, having owned Chevrolets, Cadillacs and Dodges for a very long time. It wasn’t even particularly noteworthy that Saab was taken over by a Chinese company, with SAIC having acquired MG and fellow Swedish Volvo becoming the property of Geely.

The BBC reported Evergrande, writing that the giant has 1,300 real estate projects in China and is involved “in wealth management, electric car manufacturing and food and drink manufacturing. It even owns one. of the country’s biggest football teams – Guangzhou FC “. The BBC continues to say that to finance the company’s rapid expansion, it borrowed $ 300 billion, which it is now struggling to repay to its creditors.

Last month, Reuters reported that “Evergrande has already missed three rounds of interest payments on its international bonds and has made efforts to sell some of its assets to raise funds,” the same article suggests the company was considering. to sell only the parts of their car brand in Sweden, but news from last week suggests that the sale will be much larger.

NEVS was a failure

NEVS 9-3 EV

In the wake of the success of Volvo and MG’s renaissance as profitable and perhaps even cool automakers, it would appear that any failed Western brand when it received financial aid from a Chinese company was intended to succeed, but NEVS is a testament against it. The Drive report that NEVS sold 420 Saab 9-3 between 2013 and 2014 before production ceased, this failure resulted in a legal battle that removed the right to use the Saab name from NEVS.

According to Electrek, the new company’s production plant moved to Tianjin in 2018 to begin production of NEVS-branded Saab 9-3 using a transmission that turned the car into an electric vehicle. According to Reuters, due to these weak sales figures, Evergrande has held talks with the Xiaomi consortium which mainly focuses on smartphones to resume their stake in NEVS. In the Reuters report, this meeting was held to control Evergrande’s debts.

State regulators are slashing the conglomerate’s neck to cut spending, and the NEVS company does not appear to be far from profitable. In 2017, Inside EVs reported that by the time NEVS was testing its 9-3-based vehicle, it had received 150,000 pre-orders.

Sales of new energy vehicles, also abbreviated as NEV, saw a recent 141% increase in sales in China according to the Global Times, despite a decline in overall sales. However, in 2020 Auto Car reported on NEVS Sango, a downtown shuttle that would take over production at the Swedish factory in Trollhättan, such a drastic change in management would certainly not occur after the recent sales success.

Jalopnik described Evergrande as an implosion, which makes perfect sense. The company has grown rapidly and cannot be sustained, in order to survive it has to shrink and become sustainable.

The BBC asked if they were just ‘too big to fail’ if they collapsed, an impact would be felt around the world, and there is potential for a Swedish electric vehicle, Polestar from Volvo has proven this successfully. However, just because NEVS could end up under a new owner in the next few months doesn’t mean that Saab will go into production anytime soon.

Throughout the twentieth century Saab marketed its cars through its relationship with Saab AB the aeronautical wing, their mantra “Nothing On Earth Comes Close” was one of the most successful advertising campaigns in the history of the world. automobile. It was reported by Automotive News Europe that Saab AB had withdrawn NEVS’s right to use the Saab name on their vehicles, the waning prospects for the brand’s cars gave the defense manufacturer a negative image.

The Saab 9-3 ceased production as Saab in 2014, two years after its bankruptcy, which was also two years after entering administration following the 2007 global financial crash with such a series of bad luck that Saab’s name is unlikely to be allowed on the public market again after such big failures and a Volvo resurgence, but the parts left behind are likely to end up in new hands.

Steve marcus

A Chevrolet Corvette owned by Henry Ruggs III is shown on a flatbed truck at the scene of a fatal crash on Rainbow Boulevard between Tropicana Avenue and Flamingo Road on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Ruggs, a wide receiver for the Las Vegas Raiders, goes be charged with impaired driving causing death.

Former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III makes a first Las Vegas court appearance in Las Vegas on Wednesday, November 3, 2021. Ruggs faces charges related to a flaming vehicle crash early Tuesday in Las Vegas that made a dead woman and Ruggs and his injured passenger.

Former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III makes a first Las Vegas court appearance in Las Vegas on Wednesday, November 3, 2021. Ruggs faces charges related to a flaming vehicle crash early Tuesday in Las Vegas that made a dead woman and Ruggs and his injured passenger.

Emergency dispatchers handling a fatal crash involving former Raiders player Henry Ruggs III have received conflicting information about how many people were killed and what vehicle they were in, according to radio traffic records.

Prosecutors allege that Ruggs, 22, was driving a Chevrolet Corvette at 156 mph before stopping an SUV at around 3:40 a.m. on November 2.

The SUV caught fire, trapping driver Tina Tintor inside, authorities said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

“We have a woman crying for help. She’s trapped in a Lamborghini and a vehicle is on fire, ”a Metropolitan Police dispatcher informed the Clark County Fire Department. “The vehicle that’s on fire is a silver SUV. It does not appear that anyone is on fire in the car.

The recordings, provided to the Sun by Clark County officials as part of a public record request, illustrate the rapidly changing nature of emergency calls.

Requests for recordings of 911 calls and camera footage worn on the body by metro officers at the scene were denied based on the ongoing investigation.

Moments after the initial radio call, the dispatcher said that a person had been pulled from Ruggs’ vehicle, but that it was “unknown if the subject was aware that he had been pulled from the car”.

Another Metro dispatcher then said, “The vehicle that’s on fire, my person thinks there might be someone inside the vehicle.”

A subsequent call from the fire department also stated that “there may still be someone inside the vehicle that is on fire.”

Seconds later, a firefighter at the scene said, “We have a vehicle on fire, fully involved. Another vehicle was also involved in the accident and was not on fire. Looks like we have two people sitting on the sidewalk.

A second ambulance was then dispatched to the scene.

“They have two deaths, Rainbow Boulevard and Spring Valley Parkway,” a firefighter dispatcher said. “It’s a traffic accident. A vehicle caught fire.

“Two 419s and a vehicle,” the dispatcher said, using the police code for a dead body.

“Was it the vehicle that caught fire?” »Asked a first speaker.

“Let me see if it was the fire engine, or if it was the other vehicle. … They were both in the fire engine, ”the dispatcher said.

The only other fatality in the crash was Tintor’s golden retriever dog.

Ruggs was formally charged today in Las Vegas court with two counts of impaired driving resulting in death or grievous bodily harm, two counts of reckless driving and one count of possession of a firearm under l ‘affecting.

If convicted, Ruggs could face up to 52 years in prison, prosecutors said.

Ruggs was initially arrested on one count of drunk driving and one count of reckless driving, but prosecutors have requested additional charges based on injuries sustained by his girlfriend, Kiara Je’nai Kilgo-Washington, 22 years old, who was riding with him.

Ruggs had a blood alcohol content of 0.161 percent, double the legal limit for driving in Nevada, and also had a loaded handgun in the car, prosecutors said.

Ruggs was released on $ 150,000 bail last week on the condition that he wear an ankle monitor and not drive or drink alcohol. He was cut from the Raiders after his arrest.

CITY OF PELL – Michael Dale Iervolino was convicted of two counts of capital murder for the shooting death of Nicholas Sloan Harmon.

A jury found Iervolino guilty on Monday after nearly an hour of deliberation after the prosecution and defense made their final statements Monday morning.

Testimony in Michael Iervolino’s trial ended on Friday after each side ruled on their case.

Iervolino is charged with two counts of capital murder in connection with the shooting death of Nicholas Slaon Harmon, a 20-year-old Air Force Reserve member and the son of the St. Clair County District Attorney, Lyle Harmon. One count accuses Iervolino of shooting young Harmon from inside a vehicle, while the second count accuses him of shooting Harmon while Harmon was in a vehicle. The incident occurred on November 5, 2019.

The prosecution ended its multi-day case on Friday by focusing on expert testimony. The first witness called was the state medical examiner, Dr Valerie Green, who performed an autopsy on Harmon after his death.

She testified that Harmon had a gunshot wound to the left side of the neck. Green said the bullet passed through Harm’s neck, hitting tissue near the spine and Adam’s apple before exiting through his mouth. She said the injury would not result in immediate death, with the main contributing factor being blood loss.

Green said the trauma could cause a person to choke on blood. She said that a person with such an injury would likely be able to function for a few minutes. Green said during cross-examination of defense lawyer Bob Bently that a person would be able to move but would have difficulty breathing and would likely be confused.

Green also testified that the injury itself was unusual for an entry injury, being more irregular than normal.

“Looking at this, I think there was an intermediate target,” she said.

Previous witnesses have said that the rear window on the driver’s side of Hamron’s Mazda 3 was shattered when it was found leaning against a guide wire near the Valero Travel Center in Moody. Green said the projectile hitting the glass could cause this irregularity in the wound.

Geaneé Westley, an Alabama Department of Forensic Pathologist, testified to DNA evidence on the 9mm Hi Point pistol that several witnesses said were in possession of Iervolino on the night of the incident. She tested it against DNA swabs from Irvolino and witnesses Jacob Atkinson, Dylon Stewart and Jacob Wilson. Westley said the gun contained a mixture of DNA from three people, two of them definitely male and the other inconclusive. collected by the State Bureau of Investigations, but that he had let Iervolino throw it away the night of the incident.

The last expert was Nicholas Drake who works as a gun and tool brand examiner for the ADF. He said he tested both the Hi Point and the Glock 9mm involved in the case.

Drake said he compared the Hi Point to four casings found in a Chevrolet work truck that circuit clerk Annette Manning later testified to as having pleaded guilty to property theft and breaking and entering. a vehicle related to earlier this week. He said the Hi Point also matched a cartridge case found in the yard of Johnny Burtum, Ievolino’s cousin, who testified that Iervolino came to his home early in the morning of November 6, 2019.

Drake said he could not conclusively prove that the projectile that caused Harmon’s death was fired from the Hi Point pistol in evidence, as he did not appear to have a consistent pattern in tests, but he could say he had been shot from a Hi Point. He testified that the projectile had marks consistent with scoring with three grooves moving to the left, a feature only seen in Hi Point pistols.

The defense made their brief opening statement on Friday, having initially postponed it until later on Tuesday. Bently simply said he felt the defense case would present an alternative to the prosecution narrative and a different way of shooting Harmon.

Manning was the first defense witness. She said Iervolino was also charged with breaking and entering a vehicle and theft of property in connection with the theft of the work truck on November 5, 2019. She said Iervolino pleaded guilty to those charges on Monday. .

The only other defense witness was Doug Sharp who said he was a defense investigator who reviewed the evidence in the case. He said he also carried out tests to determine whether a gunshot from the truck Iervolino was driving could have hit Harmon.

Talladega County Attorney Steve Giddens, who is pursuing the case after District Attorney Harmon recused himself, was quick to object to Sharp’s credentials, asking if he was certified to perform such tests.

Sharp said he was not a certified police officer and did not consider himself an expert, but felt qualified to give an opinion.

Ultimately, after a discussion with Bently and Giddens, Judge Chad Woodruff reminded the jury that Sharp was not an expert but simply a person giving lay opinion. Sharp said he believed any shot from the truck to the car should have been at an angle.

Also during Sharp’s testimony, the defense showed a video of the Sunoco on Park Avenue in Moody that had previously been shown in court. The video shows the Chevrolet work truck driving past Harmon’s Mazda as it heads down Kelly Creek Road.

Sharp noted lightning in the video away from vehicles and that the car’s brake lights were obscured by something behind it before coming to a stop at the Valero, which is also visible in the video. He said in his opinion that the flash could have been a mouth flash.

In cross-examination, Sharp said he was only giving his opinion in his testimony and said he believed Harmon was shot while driving his car. He also admitted to Giddens that fire from the work truck was possible and that trees along Kelly Creek Road could have blocked the brake lights.

Giddens then replayed the video, frame by frame. In it, a small but noticeable light can be seen inside the work truck as Harmon is turning. Sharp said he had never seen this light before and had no explanation for it.

The case will continue on Monday morning with oral argument from both sides.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 (Reuters) – General Motors Co (GM.N) confirmed on Friday that it will again shut down production at its Orion assembly plant in Michigan, which makes the Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle, for three more weeks .

The largest US automaker in August extended its recall of the Bolt to more than 140,000 vehicles to replace battery modules and deal with fire hazards after a series of fires.

GM said the plant, which halted production in August following the battery recall, now has a scheduled return to production date of December 6. The new three-week production shutdown will begin on November 15.

Late last month, GM announced it would conduct limited production for two weeks at Orion starting November 1 to help optimize battery production and supply chain repair logistics, including providing vehicles to be used as a courtesy means of transportation for customers during recall repairs.

GM said on Friday that “battery module replacements remain the priority. We will continue to adjust Orion’s production schedule going forward to better support the recall.”

GM chairman Mark Reuss said last month the company was dealing with the recall before resuming production of new vehicles.

GM has suspended sales of new bolts. Reuss said GM needs to certify Bolt vehicles on dealership lots before it can sell them, but did not say when those sales could begin.

GM revealed in October that its battery partner, South Korean LG Electronics (066570.KS), had agreed to reimburse it for the estimated $ 2 billion costs and expenses associated with the Bolt recall.

GM and LG Energy Solution are building two joint venture battery plants in the United States.
