JLR shares Range Rover Sport SVR carnage in ‘No Time To Die’ stunts

James Bond’s latest adventures will take him to Norway and Scotland, as seen in the trailer for the upcoming “No Time to Die.” Somewhere along the way, the British spy encounters a pair of Range Rover Sport SVRs, the ultimate high-performance SUV from JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations division in one of the movie’s centerpiece car chases. Now, the company has given us a behind-the-scenes look at its filming, and the automotive carnage that ensues. The filmmakers wanted to take a Bond action sequence off-road, and chose the Range Rover Sport SVR as the the bad guys’ pursuit vehicle. Armed with a JLR product placement deal (Bond drives a new Defender in another part of the movie) the henchmen had no qualms picking one of the most expensive things on the menu. Unfortunately, that also makes is a bit hard to watch when machines that start at $115,000 are totaled as […]

a virtual battleground that could cripple your practice

Imagine it’s early Monday morning, and you’re getting to your office. When you start up your computer to look at your schedule and bring up your first patient’s chart, you can’t get into your system. The next thing you see is a message from some hacker demanding bitcoin to release access to your data. You are yet another victim of a ransomware attack. Since 2020, the number of cyberattacks in the medical industry has skyrocketed. It seems that we see reports of a new attack every time we check the news. Major hospital systems have been held hostage for millions of dollars – not including the millions in lost revenue lost while systems are down, and patients cannot get the care they need. Independent medical practices are not immune. Have you prepared? Cybersecurity is a real issue for us physicians now. Besides dealing with potential identity theft and HIPAA violations, […]

British computing and mobility inventor Clive Sinclair dies at 81

LONDON — Clive Sinclair, the British inventor and entrepreneur who arguably did more than anyone else to inspire a whole generation of children into a life-long passion for computers and gaming, has died. He was 81. Sinclair, who rose to prominence in the early 1980s with a series of affordable home computers that offered millions their first glimpse into the world of coding as well as the adrenaline rush of playing games on screens, died on Thursday morning after a long battle with cancer. Though ailing, his daughter Belinda Sinclair said, he was still working on inventions up until last week. “He was inventive and imaginative and for him it was exciting and an adventure, it was his passion,” she told the BBC. Born in 1940 in the plush southwest London suburb of Richmond, Sinclair left school at the age of 17 and became a technical journalist before deciding he […]

Junkyard Gem: 1985 Ford Mustang GT

When you visit a big American self-service car graveyard these days, you’ll find plenty of Ford Mustangs. Nearly all of those cars will be the 1994-2004 SN95s, with a few fifth-generation Mustangs plus a surprising number of 1974-1978 Mustang IIs. Pre-1974 Mustangs are exceedingly rare in the big, high-inventory-turnover yards nowadays, of course (though I do find one now and then), but the real surprise is how tough it is to find reasonably intact Fox Mustangs in such places. The Fox sold from the 1979 through 1993 model years and more than 2.5 million were built, but they remain very popular with enthusiasts and mostly get spared a date with The Crusher. Still, discarded Foxes appear from time to time; last month, I spotted a clean ’86 Mustang LX with the 2.3-liter Pinto engine at a yard just north of downtown Denver, and that very same yard had today’s Junkyard […]

Who needs scientists? It’s not like we listen to them anyway. [PODCAST]

“I am a proud science-trained medical doctor and concerned mother. I am not going to remain silent when the biggest tragedies are yet to hit earth yet. Like seriously, I do not want to become like the dinosaurs. History wasn’t too kind to them. Just saying. Scientists say the worst is yet to come if America doesn’t listen. What do scientists know anyway? You might disagree with my words, but If you want to get angry, write many insults, and be in denial, go ahead. I am a mother bear, and I do bite, as it’s called self-defense. To all my fellow scientists and torchbearers of the truth, I salute you. Let us not stop speaking the truth until real change happens.” Tomi Mitchell is a family physician. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Who needs scientists? It’s not like we listen to them anyway.” Did you enjoy […]

2022 Toyota Sienna Woodland priced at $46,565

Toyota believes there are enough minivan drivers out there with dreams of conquering dirt paths that it created the 2022 Sienna Woodland Special Edition. Special shocks create 6.9 inches of ground clearance, putting the sylvan trim right there with the Jeep Renegade, to go with standard all-wheel drive and 18-inch wheels, roof rails with crossbars, a 1,500-watt power inverter in the cargo area, and a 3,500-pound towing capacity. Cars Direct got a look at a Toyota order guide, and according to that, Toyota also believes people are ready to splurge to the tune of $46,565 for the Sienna Woodland Edition. That figure includes the $1,215 destination charge. Doing the math finds that the Woodland trim adds $3,600 to the price of the seven-seater Sienna XLE AWD trim that it’s based on, leapfrogging the price of the XSE trim. Only the Limited and Platinum trims will be more expensive before options. […]

NTSB investigating latest fatal Tesla crash and battery fire

WASHINGTON —The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said on Friday it will send a team to investigate a Tesla vehicle crash this week that killed two people in Coral Gables, Florida. Coral Gables police have said it is unclear whether the Tesla Model 3 involved in the crash in a residential area on Monday evening was using the electric vehicle company’s driver-assistance system, called Autopilot. The two people killed were badly burned and have not yet been positively identified. The NTSB, which makes safety recommendations but does not regulate automakers, said its investigation will focus on the operation of the vehicle and the post-crash fire that consumed it after it struck a tree. The agency said three NTSB investigators will arrive in the area on Monday. Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The NTSB has previously investigated three fatal Tesla crashes in which Autopilot was […]

There’s no patient-centered care without patient-centered data

The problem We are on the precipice of a data tidal wave in health care, which is exciting because it can transform lives. But it’s concerning because our health care system is not built to deliver this promise. We are funneling data into an abyss of fragmented medical care. We will be left with fragmented data hidden behind account logins of thousands of devices and health care organization accounts. Already today, patients and providers struggle to access lab work, imaging, medication and a variety of tests and patient information. The struggle increases exponentially as our sources of data grow. Beyond the inconvenience, the scattered data prevents a comprehensive view of patient information. This makes data even more ineffective, results in second-rate care and opens the door to preventable mistakes. We have reached the end of the line with a makeshift approach to care. To truly improve quality and reduce cost […]

Europe and the U.K. have different ideas about towing than America

In the United States, we maybe go a little overkill when it comes to towing. It is, after all, one of the key selling points of trucks and traditional SUVs. There’s even quite the arms race between the American truck makers with the current towing champ being the Ford F-Series Super Duty and its maximum towing capacity of 37,000 pounds. If we consider how many people actually use all that capacity, it’s a bit ridiculous. But, while we in America may go overboard, those in Europe and the U.K. might go too far in the other direction.  What led us down this rabbit hole was seeing that the new Kia Sorento, which is a fine crossover, won the overall Tow Car Award from the U.K.’s What Car?. And this is a competition where trucks such as the Ford Ranger are tested, too. Granted, the award isn’t purely about towing ability, […]
