Peugeot to return to Le Mans after decade-long absence

Peugeot Sport announced Friday that it will return to top-tier motorsports in collaboration with works team Total, fielding a new Le Mans Hypercar Prototype in 2022. The announcement came in the lead-up to the 88th running of the infamous 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will be held this weekend after being postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic.  “Le Mans is the holy grail of the automobile world,” said Peugeot CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato in the company’s announcement. “It is the race who determines its winner. For us, this represents 3 victories but also the endless sweat, tears and joy and an incredible team spirit with TOTAL, with whom we celebrate this year, 25 years of collaboration.” The announcement was accompanied by a video titled “Back to Le Mans,” which you can check out below. Take note, the video itself is in French but contains English subtitles.   Peugeot shared renderings […]

Fact Witness vs. Expert Witness: What’s the Difference?

When a real estate appraiser is called to testify in a court, it could be as one of two types of witnesses. If you are called to testify as an appraiser, it’s important to determine at the time of the request which of the two types you will be: fact witness or expert witness. One has lower liability and responsibility, and the other has greater financial reward. Fact Witness Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th edition, defines a “fact witness” as: In general, one who, being present, personally sees or perceives a thing; a beholder, spectator, or eyewitness. One who is called to testify before a court… One who testifies to what he has seen, heard, or otherwise observed. A fact witness is one who testifies only to that of which he or she has firsthand knowledge and who describes only facts (as opposed to expressing opinions). There is no formal definition […]

Ford tests manual Bronco with desirable Sasquatch package

Shortly after the 2021 Ford Bronco debuted, enthusiasts playing around with the configuration tools unearthed a somewhat troubling detail: The attractive Sasquatch package — which adds 35″ tires and locking differentials and is ostensibly available on every variant of the new 4×4 — is only available with the 10-speed automatic transmission. Even with the 2.3-liter engine, which can normally be mated to the seven-speed manual, adding the Sasquatch package required selecting the auto. But according to Bronco Nation (the new Ford-supported Bronco community), Blue Oval engineers have been spotted testing a manual-transmission prototype with all of the Sasquatch package goodies.  “Bronco Nation was on the ground for durability testing in Moab, UT several weeks ago where a 2.3L manual Badlands Bronco was used. We were able to ride in that Bronco, but at the time it was running on 33-in., non-Sasquatch tires,” the community post says. “Since then, Bronco Nation […]

Patients without traditional support systems, and the doctors who stereotype them [PODCAST]

The Podcast by KevinMD | Podcast | September 17, 2020 “When doctors ignore the evidence showing that a support system doesn’t have to be traditional in order to be effective, that’s not a medical judgment. It’s a personal prejudice that puts singles at serious risk. Classifying patients as married or unmarried when studying the effects of social support undoubtedly makes research easier, with groups determined by a simplistic either-or. But since social support is not, in fact, limited to marriage, the results of such studies are bound to be flawed — not to mention perpetuating discriminatory treatment that can cost single people our lives.” Joan DelFattore is a writer.

Vanderhall announces electric Navarro off-roader

Vanderhall announces electric Navarro off-roader

Utah-based Vanderhall announced its first four-wheeled model will be an electric off-roader that looks like a cross between a Jeep Wrangler and a dune buggy. Called Navarro, it’s scheduled to go on sale in 2022. The SUV is recognizable as a member of the Vanderhall range because its headlights are mounted directly behind the grille, but the similarities end there. It’s tall, rides on massive tires, and doesn’t have overhangs on either end; it looks like it could climb up a wall. Its wheels are exposed, a styling cue that will undoubtedly summon a dark cloud of disapproval from regulators, and it’s fitted with some kind of removable top. One of the coolest features, at least judging by the short video Vanderhall posted on YouTube, are see-through doors. Stylists didn’t add them for adventurers who want to go groundhog spotting. Punching out the sheet metal allows off-roaders to see the […]

Care is no longer personal. Care is political.

Care is no longer personal. Care is political.

Care. I do not believe we have ever heard more about care at a presidential nominating convention than in this year’s Democrat convention. “Patriotism,” “justice,” “bravery,” “strength”?  For sure.  But “care”? Scarcely a word. Yet we now hear that the role of the president is to “care about and for the people” he governs. Socrates spoke of the task of a ruler to care for the shepherd who cares for his flock. But in contemporary America, such words would seem more religious than civic. In our democracy, care is for the home and hospital, the nursing home and the nursery — not the political arena. In politics, we call on workers and warriors, not caregivers. I’ve spent a lifetime studying the philosophical grounding of the notion of care, of why care falls to women, and why we so rarely hear it spoken of publicly. I’ve never seen the subject of […]

British students invent a way to capture tire dust pollution

LONDON — A group of students in Britain has invented a way of capturing tire dust — a major contributor to air and water pollution — as a car drives along, winning them this year’s James Dyson Award in the UK. Tiny particles of rubber from tires are responsible for nearly half of road transport particulate emissions, according to the UK government, and they are the second largest source of microplastic pollutant in oceans after single-use plastic. “Everyone focuses on air pollution being directly from the engines themselves and coming out of the exhaust pipe,” Hugo Richardson, one of four members of The Tire Collective, told Reuters in London. “But what people don’t necessarily recognize is that tire wear is a huge contributor to that, and that’s partly down to its microscopic size and the fact that you don’t obviously see it all the time.” The award-winning solution was to […]

2020 BMW 128ti front-wheel drive hot hatch announced

The third-generation BMW 1 Series is not sold in the United States. It’s also front-wheel drive, a switch that left BMW fans in a dumb stupor. Mounting the engine sideways means the hatchback is no longer eligible to receive a straight-six, but the Munich-based firm is taking advantage of the new layout to catapult the 1 into a segment dominated by the Volkswagen Golf GTI: hot hatches. Called 128ti, the sprightly variant of the 1 Series wears a nameplate that was famously worn by the 1602 and the 2002 sold during the 1960s. No one seems rattled by the fact that Alfa Romeo has also used it for decades, and it continues to do so in 2020. Back to the road: BMW’s modern-day ti is powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder that sends 265 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and a […]

Is now the time for single payer? [PODCAST]

The Podcast by KevinMD | Podcast | September 16, 2020 “Single payer is the solution. And the time for it is now. A single-payer system would guarantee health care coverage immediately to every American. So whether a loved one gets sick from COVID, has a heart attack, or gets in a car accident, she will receive the care she needs without it causing financial hardship. A single-payer system will eliminate employer health insurance contributions. This will provide huge relief to hundreds of thousands of struggling small businesses across the country. The money saved can go towards paying their employees a living wage or hiring new workers, which will help get our economy back on track. A single-payer system will relieve the burden of finding health insurance from individuals. Freelancers and gig, self-employed, and per diem workers can pursue employment without having to worry about providing health coverage for their families. […]
