- The latest Tesla challenger approaches the starting line, and it looks kinda sketchy
By Brett Williams - Monday Jun 12, 2017
There will soon be a new player in the electric car space, with a big name backing it — but the company has a lot to prove before it can legitimately threaten Tesla.
Renowned auto designer Henrik Fisker just released the first full-body images of his EMotion autonomous electric car, along with some new spec details, giving the world its first IRL look at the latest challenger to Tesla's reign as the top all-electric luxury vehicle on the market.
EMotion, which was first announced last year by Fisker's eponymous company, boasts some impressive specs and a sleek design that's sure to turn heads. The pre-release materials claim the car will be the "most advanced" electric vehicle ever made, with a proprietary lithium-ion battery that can charge for 100 miles' worth of juice in just nine minutes and provide a massive 400-mile-plus range at full power. That's at least 65 more miles than Tesla's top-level Model S 100D sedan, if you're keeping track. Read more...More about Tesla, Electric Vehicles, Fisker, Tech, and Energy

- Hummer factory gets second life making electric cars
By Maria Gallucci - Thursday Jun 22, 2017
A U.S. auto plant that once made giant gas-guzzlers will now make cars that don't need gas at all.
AM General, which previously built the Hummer H2, sold its factory in South Bend, Indiana to the electric carmaker SF Motors, both firms announced Thursday.
SF Motors will pay $110 million to produce "intelligent electric vehicles," according to publicly available filings. It will spend another $30 million to upgrade the 700,000-square-foot commercial assembly plant.
The company didn't elaborate further on its plans for the factory, such as how many cars it will produce annually or what types of smart driving or electric-powertrain technologies they'll use. But executives said the arrangement will preserve about 430 U.S. auto worker jobs that were at risk of disappearing. Read more...More about Science, China, Tesla, Climate Change, and Automobiles
- Banking the unbanked in emerging markets
By Joshua Bateman - Tuesday Jun 20, 2017
As countries progress, citizens migrate from remote villages to large cities and foreign countries. Their economic power rises and they participate in the global economy. People need to purchase food, pay electricity bills, top up transportation cards, arrange online services, buy overseas goods, repay loans, and send money to relatives.

- This Network Of Indigenous People Is Reporting From The Front Lines Of Climate Change
By Eillie Anzilotti - Wednesday Jun 14, 2017
The Local Environmental Observer (LEO) Network collects reports on how the world region is transforming in response to climate change.
Victoria Kotongan grew up in the Native Village of Unalakleet, Alaska, where she still lives and hunts grouse for subsistence. A few years ago, she was cleaning a couple of the birds she shot, and noticed all of them had worms coming out of the breast meat. Had she found a worm in just one of the birds, she might not have worried, but this was all six of them, and she’d never seen this disease before.
