"The campaign underscores how truck owners are essentially dumping cash all over America's highways from all the hidden costs required in maintaining a private fleet," Ryder's Karen Jones tells"Marketing Daily."

- Sick puppies spur New York scrutiny of non-profit rescues
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 27, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — When Alexis Kozmon and her husband decided to get a dog for their 6-year-old daughter, they chose to adopt rather than buy from a breeder to teach the child the value of rescuing.Four weeks later, the puppy the family named Sugar was dying painfully from distemper, and despite $3,000 in veterinary treatments, the only humane option was to put her down. Two of Sugar's siblings met the same fate. Kozmon faulted the volunteer-based rescue that had trucked the puppies from Texas, but when she complained to New York's consumer protection agency, she learned such groups are exempt from oversight."There was a loophole," said Kozmon, who lives in Middletown, Connecticut, but adopted from a group in southeastern New York.

- Not Everyone Has A Garage, But What If The Streetlights Were Electric Car Charging Stations?
By Adele Peters - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
Ubitricity is retrofitting streetlights in London to provide overnight charging to parked EVs.
An old-fashioned streetlight in the London borough of Westminster–emblazoned with an ornate, golden W–looks essentially the same as it did in the 1950s. But now it’s possible to open a tiny door on the side and plug in an electric car.
- Podcasts Democratized Radio. Now PRX Wants To Democratize Podcasts
By Pavithra Mohan - Wednesday Sep 20, 2017
As PRX’s Harvard-linked Podcast Garage turns one, it’s looking to expand its incubator model and lower barriers to entry for more aspiring podcasters.
When PRX set up shop on Western Avenue in Boston as part of a Harvard initiative called Zone 3, the public media nonprofit wasn’t sure what would come of it. Harvard had asked if PRX might create a pop-up listening experience. PRX countered with a proposal for a low-cost, community-based podcast incubator and studio space, which they christened the Podcast Garage—named for its Silicon Valley-esque origins in an actual garage.
- Cummins is set to battle Tesla with its new all-electric semi truck
By Brett Williams - Wednesday Aug 30, 2017
Tesla will reportedly introduce a new line of all-electric semi trucks in September — but another major player in the big rig game just beat Tesla to the punch by showing off its own alternative energy freight truck first.
Cummins, a company that is synonymous with diesel engines, just unveiled a vehicle called the AEOS that's an electric-powered Class 7 semi truck cab concept. The truck swaps out the semi's standard gas-guzzling 12-liter engine for an electric one powered by a 140 KWh battery pack.
The AEOS semi will have a range of 100 miles per charge, according to Cummins, meaning it's designed for shorter runs in urban areas rather than long hauls on the highway. Extra battery packs can extend the range to about 300 miles for longer routes if necessary. Read more...More about Tesla, Electric Vehicles, Freight Transportation, Trucking, and Tech
