Volkswagen: from 2030 there will be no more cars with manual trasmission

Some car manufacturers are considering removing the clutch pedal from their cars in advance of the transition to electric mobility. It appears that Volkswagen is one of the first automakers to abandon manual transmission, according to a report by the German website Auto Motor und Sport. Upcoming Volkswagen cars with automatic transmission only After the disbursements that the Wolfsburg company had to support in the aftermath of the Dieselgate and to finance the electrification process, it is also necessary to simplify the current cars in order to reduce costs. For these reasons, Volkswagen is giving priority to the manual gearbox and should give up the clutch pedal starting with the cars that will enter the market in 2023. Volkswagen In particular, it seems to be the new Tiguan compact crossover arriving in 2023 and the new Passat, vehicles with traditional endothermic power but which will be launched exclusively in versions with automatic transmission. Auto Motor und Sport believes manual transmission in a VW will no longer exist by the end of the decade, when the company’s range could be entirely electric vehicles. In all likelihood, these VW decisions will also impact brands related to the group, such as Skoda, SEAT and Audi. Among other things, the latter had already announced its intention to launch only electric vehicles starting in 2026. Another news that confirms how the car market is going through a process of profound transformation, where investments by car manufacturers are focused on different aspects than those on which we focused more in the past.

Google Doodle celebrated the 138th birthday of typhus vaccine creator Rudolf Weigl – Technology News, Firstpost

Today Google Doodle celebrates the 138th birthday of Polish inventor, physician and immunologist Rudolf Weigl. He is known as the creator of the first effective vaccine against it 7; typhus epidemic. There are three types of typhus: exfoliating typhus, mouse typhus, and epidemic typhus. It is a group of diseases caused by bacteria that spread fleas, lice and fleas.

Each insect spreads a type of typhus: chicks spread typhus patchy, fleas spread mouse typhus, and body lice spread epidemic typhus. According to the US CDC, epidemic typhus was the cause of death for millions of people in previous centuries, but today it is very rare. When cases occur, it is observed in areas of extreme overcrowding, where body lice can easily pass from one person to another. Born in 1883, Weigl was born in what is now the Czech Republic as the son of Austro-German parents. His father died in a bicycle accident and his mother remarried a Polish high school teacher.

In 1907 he completed his studies in biology at the Polish University of Lwów and then obtained a doctorate in zoology, comparative anatomy and histology. Typhus was a big problem during World War I, and Weigl has been studying lice in his lab for decades and has been able to develop a vaccine from these small insects. After Charles Nicolle’s preliminary work in 1909 (he discovered that lice were the vector of epidemic typhus), Weigl began work on a vaccine against epidemic typhus. To develop the vaccine, he bred the lice that Rickettsia prowazeki had been infected with and then crushed into a vaccine paste. He used this paste for experiments on animals and also performed some experiments on humans.

Weigl was successful in 1936 and vaccinated its first beneficiary. During the Soviet occupation he headed the Department of General Biology at Lviv University and worked on the development of this vaccine. The Typhus Research Institute was founded in his department. It maintained its position during the occupation as its research was particularly important as typhus spread mainly in Eastern Europe

The social (and economic) policy of wars

Almost all wars are waged for interests, particularly political, social and geographical ones. But often there are also economic interests. The United States has always been criticated of waging war for economic gains. There is no doubt that almost all American wars have been waged to export democracy or even to suppress dictatorships. But behind these valid reasons there were also other interests, often not directly … but there were. After all, successful wars, in most cases, bring money.

LYRIC

At last my dear I fear
We lost our way but it’s ok
We’ll make it back
When the time arrives

And if you close the door
Just leave the crack
I know you know
We’ll make it back
When the time arrives, know
I’ll be by your side

I’ll wait the day
For some kind of sign
That I’ll obey
Though I’m not doing fine
Living in my skin
Without you to get in
Living in my skin
Without you

Until the night, she crushes over me like dopamine
Until the dawn, she crushes over me like dopamine

I wreck my brain
For details that remain
And though my memory is a pain
Psycoded all the time
Still sweetness that revised

At last my dear
I fear we lost our way
But it’s ok
We’ll make it back
Make it back
Make it back
Make it back

Until the night, she crushes over me like dopamine
Until the dawn, she crushes over me like dopamine
Into the flood, into the flow, I follow it, you’re going to
Into the flood, into the flow, I follow it, you’re going to

Until the night, she crushes over me like dopamine
Until the dawn, she crushes over me like dopamine

Like dopamine
Like dopamine

Into the flood, into the flow, I follow it, you’re going to
Into the flood, into the flow, I follow it, you’re going to
