Through novel pedagogic approaches, the installation invited participants to learn about the planet's language, customs and behaviours. In so doing, the project encouraged visitors to reflect upon current socio-political models with the hope of collectively imagining alternatives." When you think of discursive design, you likely conjure up the RCA and the topics, aesthetics, and approaches that are presented and valorized in the media. But it is a big world with other voices that have a tougher time being heard. It is naïve and unfair to just assume that everyone is free to speak—the reality is that existing systems and politics make such equality of access and acceptance a true design fiction. How does a Pakistani perspective, for example, get communicated to the world when dominant design agendas, aesthetic canons, and access to gatekeepers create road blocksunintended or otherwise? The Climactic exhibition gets other voices and actors on stage—and we from the privileged West and/or Global North, should lend an ear.

Does that signal the beginning of the end of the combustion engine going forward? I dont think it will end completely by 2030; there will be certain segments that will continue with it. EVs are motor driven, there is no powertrain as such and even the parts are totally imported. Companies have started working on EVs like Mahindra is seriously working on it. They are already making a small vehicle the Reva, which they are now looking to expand to their bigger models, so we are also taking it seriously. But we just request the Government to go slow on it. That’s all. Moving to the electric powertrain like the motor, controller, battery would again call for more investments in addition to the amount that SIAM had earlier indicated? Your comments. No, no. When we are looking at vehicle safety and talking of safety technology, it will apply to the electric vehicles as well.

With a 321bhp twin-turbo V6 and four-wheel drive, it had a 0-62mph time of 6.7 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. That puts it in league with models such as the Audi S4, but because of the Vauxhall badge, its depreciation is steep. You can pick up a decent VXR for £9,000, and the Sports Tourer estate adds some versatility. Either way, subtle styling makes the car a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Price new: £33,670 Now: £8,995 Engine: 2.8-litre V6, 321bhp Economy: 24.7mpg Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2009) Ford Focus ST Image 6 of 9 Image 6 of 9 ST-3 (2013/62 reg, 60k miles) The current battle for hot hatch supremacy has seen the Focus ST sidelined by some formidable rivals – including Ford’s own Focus RS . But you ignore the ST at your peril, because the Mk3 is still a seriously capable machine. With 247bhp feeding the front wheels, it has plenty of firepower, while the standard car’s sharp handling has been honed to perfection.

4 TSI unit that is perky enough, although the 1.6 is better. Mostly, though, you will be looking at diesel models and the 2.0 TDI 170 is our sort of enthusiastic engine. You should get around 50mpg and that helps to keep running costs reasonable. The Greenline II model is the full-on economy purchase. There are loads of trim levels, too. S is standard Superb spec, but you get just about everything anyway. Elegance is probably the one that gives you the best mix of goodies. The Superb is a luxury load-hauler for not much money at all and almost the perfect used motor. Watch out for: The Superb is reliable, with very recent recalls, just for electrical engine cut-outs. Keyless entry can be temperamental. Check for corroded alloy wheels. ABS sensors can fail but the fix is straightforward. DSG automatic gearbox can deliver jerky changes. Toyota RAV4 Pick of the range 2.

Here comes the EV avalanche... (click the image to enlarge) The take-up of electric cars in Europe and the US remains a trickle, but China’s push towards electrification is set to unleash a flood of new models over the next few years The incentives to buy an electric car in the UK may have been reduced, but more and more people are still making the switch away from conventionally powered vehicles. So far this year, sales of ‘alternatively fuelledvehicles have accounted for around 4% of all new car registrations. Britain is western Europe’s third-largest market for electrified cars, behind the Netherlands and Norway, where incentives are substantial, but the global trend tells a similar story. March this year was the third-best month for electrified car sales in Europe , behind only December 2015 and 2016, when financial inducements peaked. The new Renault Zoe and the Nissan Leaf were the standard-bearers, chased by the plug-in hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander .

Can give this to AI—generally more visually interesting than "the cloud." (credit: Disney) Back when I was doing research, one of my advisors once joked that, if you wait long enough, you can produce an old result using new methods, manage to get it published, and everyone will be impressed. I think his time limit was 15 years. Apparently, when it comes to big ideas about science (rather than scientific results), the schedule's a bit accelerated. Just shy of 10 years ago, Chris Anderson, then Editor-in-Chief at Wired, published a piece in which he claimed that cloud computing was making the scientific method irrelevant. All those models and theories didn't matter, so long as an algorithm could identify patterns in your data. The piece was wrong then, as I explained at the time (see below). It hasn't gotten any more right in the meantime. Yet a quote from Chris Anderson's article led off a new column last month that essentially says Anderson was right, he just had the wrong reason.

The Toyota Prius is a great hybrid, but is the new plug-in version even better? We compare it with the VW Golf GTE and Kia Optima PHEV 2017-05-28 10:00 Electric car sales are slowly increasing, but for many buyers range anxiety remains a big hurdle. So plug-in hybrids could be the perfect answer; they combine the eco-friendly benefits of zero emissions motoring with the confidence-boosting fallback of a conventional fuel engine. The latest model to join the fray is the second-generation Toyota Prius PHV , which follows hot on the heels of the more conventional petrol-electric model. Featuring bespoke looks, bigger batteries and an electric range that’s twice as long, the newcomer has all the on-paper credentials. Yet plug-in models are proving more popular, so before the Toyota can celebrate, it must face a pair of tough rivals. • Best hybrid cars on sale right now The Volkswagen Golf GTE is the ultimate mean green machine, mixing EV capability with hot hatch pace, plus it benefits from the same facelift and improvements as the standard Golf .

Business models are set up to have waste,” she said. “So if you imagine you go into a bakery at the end of the day and there was just one loaf of bread — now that would be really good for the environment but really bad for the business, because no one wants to buy that loaf of bread and plus no one is really wanted to go in there for the last half-hour because there is nothing in there that looks particularly appetizing. “So the way that industry works is that it will just fill the shelves, and it has to have a certain amount of product available at the close of trading and so it deliberately produces waste,” Barfield added. Australia’s minister for the environment and energy, Josh Frydenberg, says wasted food depletes other precious resources. “The excesses in the agricultural production, the land and the water that is wasted producing that surplus food that we do not eat, as well as the landfill and the environmental cost that we incur,” he said, listing the resources.

Alongside this immediate new model injection, it would make sense for Geely to use Proton's under utilised Tanjung Malim plant to manufacture Volvo models destined for the Asean market, which will drastically lower its selling price, boosting its competitiveness, in the duty-free Asean zone. Obviously, as this picture unfolds, the cross-border deal between Malaysia's Proton and China's Geely will see growth of Proton through new models, manufacturing of other Geely brands. This will put to rest the fears of some who say the Geely partnership will see Proton staff being laid off, vendors sidelined and distributors cast aside, because growth for Proton will translate into more jobs, more work for vendors and suppliers, who will need to play catch-up with Proton's rapid growth. Skeptics of this tie-up are well-advised to think for themselves that no foreign strategic partner will wade into a deal that will swallow several billions of ringgit over the years, hand over their research and development, transfer their auto designs and platforms, if it did not intend to grow Proton's production.
