He was a wonderful success story and I went back to the office and told everybody how wonderful he had recovered and improved. From no mobility to walking unaided.

Enlarge / As the technology has improved, 3D printing has become a more realistic option for medical professionals, though printing a femur replica (seen here) presents much less of a challenge than creating a functioning prosthetic. (credit: Getty Images) For people who are missing limbs, 3D printing can make new prostheticsfaster, cheaper, and better. For Mosaic, Ian Birrell reports that this idea could transform mobility for millions around the world.

John Nhial was barely a teenager when he was grabbed by a Sudanese guerrilla army and forced to become a child soldier. He was made to endure weeks of walking with so little food and water that some of his fellow captives died. Four more were killed one night in a wild-animal attack. Then the boys were given military training that involvedrunning up to ten kilometres in the heat and hiding” before being given guns and sent to fight “the Arabs.

Mid-corner bumps can unsettle it, too. While it’s far from overwhelmingly apparent, it’s enough to make us consider forgoing the charms of a folding roof and buying the coupe. Keen drivers who enjoy this site will think the same, too. Image 4 of 14 Image 4 of 14 That’s a shame, because the new chassis is a well-sorted and athletic one. Turning-in quickly, the front tyres bite with purpose. There’s little understeer, unless a ham-fisted approach is taken, and a neutral and balanced feel remains throughout the turn. Plant your foot and, thanks to the optional torque-vectoring diff, there’s mobility to the rear end that’s uncommon in fast Audis. This allows impressive cornering speeds and, amazingly, a sense of fun. You wont achieve anything like the tail-out antics of rear-driven rivals as power is quickly dragged back to the front to spit you out of the bend, but it’s still an effective (if not super-entertaining) way of covering ground.

Hildegard Wortmann is now the Senior Vice President of the BMW Brand, after working for the company for 18 years. Wortmann started at BMW in 1998 and has been with the Bavarian automaker ever since, so she knows a thing or two about its history and the direction it should take. Which makes her the perfect person for the job. Auto Motor und Sport recently spoke with Wortmann about electric cars, autonomous driving and the direction of BMW. (The interview was in German, so we apologize for any confusion in the translation) Wortmann was asked about taking over for BMW during such a trying time for the auto industry, with the entire automotive landscape shifting toward electric mobility. For me it is clear that the next ten years will change more than in the 30 years before. But I see change as a great opportunity, because as a company, we are strategically positioned for this.

Can I thank the right honourable lady for and is appointed by the sums of money that had been paid, but I can't comment on the individual cases, and unlike former Home Secretary is the government is bound by its legal obligations that it has made and we cannot break those legal commitments, but I can say that some of the one mobility that led us to have do pay those damages, occurred when she was a member of the Labour government and when those individuals brought claims against us.

However, one key development in any move to on-demand motoring is cars that are engineered to be better suited to their primary purpose. Image 13 of 20 Image 13 of 20 ‘With conventional ownership models, we have one powertrain that has to do everything from “I’ve got to drive into the city” to “I want to do some inter-city mobility” and “I want to move some things down to the refuse dump,”’ explains Garrett. ‘But what if the thinking was, “What kind of vehicle do I really need to suit my needs?” If there was a different ownership model, you could have the vehicle that you need, when you need it, for the purpose that it was intended. A small vehicle to go into the city, a different vehicle to go between cities, a larger vehicle if you needed to move things about. It works so much better and it means you can provide more dedicated powertrains for the purpose they’re best used for.

For the most part, this decline in mobility is not fundamentally about changing demographics. Long-distance moves have declined considerably for all age groups, for homeowners and renters, and also for dual-income couples. If anything, changes in demographic variables make the American mobility decline all the more striking. Education, in particular, is one major driver of mobility; mobility; data from the 1940 to 2000 U.S. censuses indicate that the long- distance migration rates of college graduates are about double those of high school graduates. But Americans are better educated than ever before, and that makes it all the more striking that residential mobility is down. If its not mainly demographics, what lies behind the greater interest in staying put? One big reason for the decline in residential moving stems from a decline in job switching.

Online design community Coroflot were interested in developing a space that reflected their creative community while also keeping mobility in mind and the result is their Mobile Work Unit (MWU) . It's a clever office on wheels that was designed in collaboration with Portland-based LOS OSOS who took a new approach when it came time for the construction. The MWU is parked inside an old ambulance garage in downtown Portland that's now home to Hand-Eye Supply. Built on a trailer, they used post-and-beam construction which allowed for the use of polycarbonate panels as walls. That allows light to fill the space while providing some semblance of separation. They paired the translucent walls with locally sourced, kiln-dried Douglas fir for the structure. In addition, a bold, vibrant color was incorporated as an accent. mg class="alignnone size-large wp-image-294267" src="http://2.
