JPMorgan Strategist Who Predicted Biden Withdrawal Has Gloomy Outlook For EV Sector, Ukraine War
  • and much more investment in charging infrastructure.

    This one is now the key. The vast majority of complaints now revolve around usable charging infrastructure. The people who rely on fast chargers (we should be making it so those are unnecessary for 99.5% of times) are finding many of them either broken, have the cables clipped, or they don't charge at the rated speed. Two of those things can be fixed with proper maintenance and the cable clipping can be fixed with proper security. Honestly, we need to incentivize PUDs to setup fast chargers. That will make EVs more attractive in rural areas and eventually provide a new source of revenue.

  • Inside the two-year fight to bring charges against school librarians in Granbury, Texas
  • The CSPOA unsurprisingly has its roots in white supremacy. The idea started through the writings of Christian Identity (white supremacist) minister William Potter Gale about Posse Comitatus which considered the county sherif as the highest government law official. White supremacist groups continued the idea throughout the 80s and 90s. When I grew up, I had always heard of talk of "constitutionalists" up in the mountains that were fine dealing with the sheriff's departments but claimed they would shoot federal officers on site. The reality is that they were not constitutionalists at all but anti-government racists who tried to hide their racism under a very thin veneer of faux constitutionalism.

  • Gas prices definitely increased and the state definitely should not have said there would be a negligible effect. However, gas price increases are not necessarily a bad thing since we want to move away from it. What would have helped is giving a tax rebate for poor people in rural areas and also maybe getting rid of the EV tab fee. We have started an instant EV rebate for families making under $94k which can help some families afford a used Bolt but the added tax is still a shitty additional expense for poor rural people. A straight tax refund would eliminate the income effect of the additional cost.

  • General Staff: Russia has lost 568,980 troops in Ukraine since Feb. 24, 2022
  • Generalize much? No, most of the liberal leaning folk in the discussions did not view imperialism as good and were happy just as happy to be critical of US and EU imperialism as much as they were of Russia's and China's.

  • Do you folks use Amazon a lot, and if yes, then why? If no, then what alternatives do you prefer?
  • I do a decent amount but it has been less and less. I avoid buying no name stuff that is loaded with fake reviews. If there is something I specifically want and it is cheaper on Amazon, I'll get it there. Oftentimes it is not cheaper for brand named stuff.

  • Nipah virus: Kerala state issues alert after 14-year-old dies
  • You should read the book Spillover if you want a fun background on zoonotic viruses. It was written pre-COVID and checks in on Adobe of the wet markets where SARS broke out and concludes that another virus is likely to break out from there. It also goes into other horrendously deadly viruses like ebola, nipah, hendra, etc and his they get spread.
