Volvo’s owner will offer its ‘transformative’ EV tech to competitors

It’s not uncommon in the car industry for competitor brands to work together to develop common technologies. However, in the following case, it seems that Geely, the Chinese carmaker that also owns Volvo, Polestar, and Lotus, is just going to sell its tech directly to its rivals.

According to a Financial Times report, Geely has created a new process for building electric vehicles, which it hopes will be one of a handful of platforms that will dominate the industry in the coming years.

The report says the new BEV (battery electric vehicle) platform could offer ranges of up to 700 km, make vehicles lighter, and scale from two-seater cars up to large minibuses that transport dozens of people at a time.

“Our development of this transformative electric vehicle architecture marks the biggest leap forward at Geely in more than a decade,” said Geely chairman, Li Shufu.

10 years after son’s suicide, Tyler Clementi’s mom says no LGBTQ person should feel ‘unworthy’

BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. — Jane Clementi packed the belongings from her home in Ridgewood, where she and her husband had lived for 31 years and raised three boys, into dozens of boxes for her move in February.

Into one of those boxes, she placed the writings that her youngest son, Tyler, had scrawled on loose paper and in the back of spiral and marble notebooks. For a decade, she’d been too distraught to read them. But a few weeks ago, she sat down and finally opened the pages.

What she read, nearly 10 years after Tyler killed himself so publicly – sparking a national conversation about suicide, mental health and LGBTQ youth – broke her heart all over again:

There is nothing in this world that I love or at least nothing I allow myself to love. I just want to go home. I just want to be deleted.

How UX designers can save us from our own shitty passwords

In 2019, cybercrime cost businesses more than $2 trillion globally. With the influx of digital products, more and more people are reusing login credentials – the leading cause of data breaches. For too long, the user experience of password management has been ignored. It’s time for designers to rethink every aspect of password UX.

Much of our lives are digitally managed. There’s an app, website, or SaaS platform for nearly every aspect of the human experience, and they all require passwords. With so many accounts come problems.

According to passwordresearch.com, 80% of data breaches are traced to weak or reused login credentials, 61% of people use the same password for multiple accounts, and only 44% of users change passwords at least once per year.

That’s a lot of trust to place in online platforms. If one app is hacked, all accounts are vulnerable.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle make rare royal political statement for ‘most important election of our lifetime’

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, urged Americans to get out and vote while making their first joint television appearance since moving to the United States.

“We’re six weeks out from the election, and today is Voter Registration Day,” Meghan said Tuesday on the TIME100 special on ABC, a primetime program on the magazine’s annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people. “Every four years, we’re told, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.’ But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action, and our voices are heard.”

“As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity,” added Harry. “What we consume, what we are exposed to, and what we engage with online, has a real effect on all of us.”

Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, moved to California with their 1-year-old

What To Know About This Easy, Chic Trend

“They are not corny anymore,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said about press-on nails back in 2019. While on a train to Washington, D.C., the congresswoman showed her Instagram followers how she applied the nails in a matter of minutes. And she was right ― the nails are suddenly trendy.

6 Items to Add to Your Packing List for COVID-Era Travel

You don’t need a travel writer to tell you that the way you travel has dramatically changed due to the coronavirus pandemi. The items on your packing list may also need to change.

Of course, there are the obvious things you should add, like masks — they’re mandatory on most airlines and at pretty much every major hotel chain, as well as places you’ll visit from Walmart to Walt Disney World. And there are other cleaning items you may have already added to your everyday routine:

  • Disinfecting wipes.

  • Gloves.

  • Hand sanitizer.

But there are several less obvious items you may want to bring that you likely have not prioritized before. Here are six additions to your packing list for travel in the COVID era:

1. A contactless credit card

Contactless credit cards have been considered a safer way to pay to prevent fraud, but they could also be a safer

Disney favourite Winnie the Pooh will be making his first appearance on a coin as part of a new series from the Royal Mint.

From today, fans of Pooh bear and coin collectors alike can get their hands on a 50-pence piece adorned with a watercolour illustration of the iconic character with a jar of honey.

The drawing is courtesy of the original illustrator for the bear and his friends, EH Shepard.

Not unlike the Beatrix Potter coin collection, this will be part of a wider Disney collaboration, with Winnie the Pooh’s friends Piglet and Christopher Robin appearing in other coins coming soon.

“I’m honoured to have been able to work on this exciting coin. Winnie-the-Pooh was a huge part of my childhood and forms some of my fondest memories,” Daniel Thorne, a product designer at The Royal Mint who worked on the Winnie-the-Pooh commemorative coin says.

Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

The Italian fashion brand, which is implementing sustainable processes and material sourcing with the goal of making its glamorous collections as sustainable as possible, have created a capsule of feminine styles crafted from vegan leather.

Redemption is about high-glam whilst still making responsible choices,” said Redemption founder and creative director Bebe Moratti. “This is why we can make shoes that are cool and ‘rock ’n’ roll’ and still be mindful and creative with our partners.
