An electric car can also be a low-maintenance, utilitarian workhorse that would be right at home for example on a farm or work site. Thankfully there is such a vehicle, or there will be soon: the B1 from electric car startup Bollinger Motors.

Racism levels in US communities predict how many black people police will kill there, study shows

Racism levels in US communities predict how many black people police will kill there, study showsThe racial biases of white members of a community have a direct link to the number of black people shot and killed by police officers in that same area, new research indicates. A study published last year found that African Americans are almost three times more likely than white people to be killed by the police’s use of force. “We expected many economic or demographic variables such as the overall wealth of an area, residential segregation, average levels of education in the area, or overall crime levels, to be involved,” said the report's lead author, Eric Hehman.

Tesla leak hints at truly impressive range for the Model 3

Tesla leak hints at truly impressive range for the Model 3

Tesla will deliver the first Model 3s to eager buyers tonight, but you don't have to wait until supper time on the West Coast to find out new details. While updating the Tesla website in advance of tonight's event, some poor developer leaked the Model 3's power efficiency, which hints at a truly impressive range for the baby Tesla.

Source code on Tesla's website, spotted by Electrek but since removed, points to the Model 3 having an efficiency of 237 Wh per mile, way more efficient than the power draw of the Model S and Model X, which use 344 and 367 Wh respectively.

Electric vehicle efficiency is exactly like the miles per gallon of a conventional car: the more efficient, the better. Even though the Model 3 is expected to come with smaller battery options than the Model S and Model X, the far superior efficiency could give it a range of over 300 miles.

That efficiency could come at the cost of lower acceleration and fewer heavy gizmos compared to the Model S and X, but Tesla has been saying for a while that the Model 3 won't have all the same bells and whistles. Some of that is for cost reasons, but if it means a crazy-good range with a relatively cheap battery pack, I'm willing to believe that most buyers will take the tradeoff.

'Reinforcements' caught sneaking into Philippine warzonePhilippine troops have seized 59 suspected militants trying to reinforce Islamist gunmen holed up in the southern city of Marawai who have been battling government forces for more than two months, military officials said Friday. The capture of the "suspicious persons" in the troubled Mindanao region has raised questions about how the Islamic State-inspired fighters have been able to hold out in Marawi for almost 70 days. Thirty-two suspected militants were arrested at a military checkpoint in Ipil town while 27 others were taken at a house in Zamboanga City on Tuesday, regional military spokeswoman Captain Jo-Ann Petinglay said.
