Nissan Just Showcased Its New Office Van Concept – CARAVAN NV350 Also Supports Mail Order

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you dream of packing up your laptop and adopting the van life, Nissan’s new concept will give you some inspiration.

The company has showcased a new van design that packs everything you need for a simple life into a relatively compact van small enough for anyone to comfortably drive.

Among other things, the concept includes a tiny workstation for getting things done.

More people are working remotely than ever before, and many people plan to continue working outside of the office when the pandemic ends.

One of the advantages of working from ‘home’ is that you can technically work anywhere you can hook up your laptop, phone, and get an Internet connection.

Thus, many people are hitting the road for a more permanent ‘workation,’ and a number of camper and camper-like products with dedicated workspaces have popped up as a result.

The latest is the Nissan NV350 Caravan ES Mobility Concept, which is a model for the ‘van life’ market that includes a small place to pull out your laptop and get to work.

As you’d expect, the Nissan concept doesn’t have as much workspace as, say, the recent camper trailer unveiled by Airstream.

However, it does include a small desk that can be placed at one of the seats or bed to use your laptop.

As well, there’s a bar-like table mounted on one wall that can be used when the floor is expanded, offering a bit more horizontal space and a place to stretch.

The van also includes storage space in the form of rails on the ceiling and empty space beneath the rear bench, which unfolds into a larger bed.

The concept is designed in such a way that users can install accessories to suit their own needs, making it possible to carry fishing gear, camping equipment, or other items for outdoor adventures.

The key aspect of this concept is that it is essentially the components within the camper that customers will eventually get access to.

Nissan designed the system to work with its NV350 Caravan GX, meaning users can essentially create a ‘DIY’ camper van, but without the huge amount of work and skill needed to retrofit an ordinary van into something livable.

When these components will be available, and at what price, remains unknown at this time.

NISSAN NV350 CARAVAN
has a good reputation as a professional use.

32 nuts that can be used to attach hooks and bars are placed in a large luggage compartment that exceeds 3 m.

Two Reports Confirm The Property Boom
New data from two sources confirms that a national real estate boom is under way across Australia.
The latest figures from both Domain and CoreLogic record annual growth in house prices in most locations in the nation, but in particular in the latest quarter. CoreLogic’s price report shows that all 15 market jurisdictions (8 capital cities and 7 state regions) recorded uplift in January and in the past three months.
Domain’s report shows all capital cities had significant price increases in 2020, with major uplift in the December Quarter.
The CoreLogic figures show quarterly growth of at least 2.4% in all 15 market jurisdictions. That equates to double-digit annual increases if those growth rates are maintained. But 12 of the 15 major markets had quarterly increases ranging from 3.5% to 7.8%.

The Domain data shows quarterly rises in house prices ranging from 3% to 6.4% in five of the eight capital cities and equally significant increases throughout many regional locations. The smaller capital cities and the regional markets are leading the growth in house

Investors Join Boom Market
Investors are tipped to return to the property market throughout 2021 as rising prices and yields in suburbia and the regions offer an attractive proposition. The latest loans data suggests investor activity is already rising. The suburbs and regions are attracting investors as prices boom and vacancy rates push below 1% in many areas, putting upward pressure on rents. “Investors have often been the last segment of the market to turn,” says AMP chief economist Dr Shane Oliver. “Momentum in prices is attracting investors back, but more so in the smaller cities.” Investors have been largely absent since 2019, dropping to an 18-year low in May 2020. Owner-occupiers and first-home buyers filled the gap, reducing investors’ market-share to below 30%.

Apple, Interesting Concept iCar – 5 Stocks to Buy as Potential ‘Apple Car’ Partners

For Full Information, You Can Visit!

The Apple electric car project (codenamed “Titan”) is an electric car project undergoing research and development by Apple Inc.

Apple has yet to openly discuss any of its self-driving research, but around 5,000 employees were reported to be working on the project as of 2018.

In May 2018, Apple reportedly partnered with Volkswagen to produce an autonomous employee shuttle van based on the T6 Transporter commercial vehicle platform.

In August 2018, the BBC reported that Apple had 66 road-registered driverless cars, with 111 drivers registered to operate those cars. In 2020, it is believed that Apple is still working on self driving related hardware, software and service as a potential product, instead of actual apple-branded cars.

5 Stocks to Buy as Potential ‘Apple Car’ Partners

Apple isn’t going to develop the Apple Car all by itself. Here’s a list of companies the tech giant could partner with

By Luke Lango, InvestorPlace Senior Investment Analyst Feb 8, 2021, 2:09 pm EST

It’s no secret. Apple (NASDAQ:APPL) has been working on autonomous driving and electric vehicle technology in Cupertino for years, and will very likely launch its own self-driving electric car — dubbed the “Apple Car” — at some point in the early 2020s.

Considering Apple’s huge success with the iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple Watch, it’s very reasonable to assume that the Apple Car will be a huge hit, too. Instead, the million-dollar question is: What are the best stocks to buy to play the Apple Car launch?
You could, of course, buy Apple’s stock. But Apple is a $2.3 trillion company.

It takes a lot to move the needle on AAPL. Even if you add Toyota‘s (NYSE:TM) entire $200 billion market cap to Apple, that would move the AAPL stock price by less than 10%. It’s a drop in the ocean.

Thus, while buying Apple’s stock is the most straight-forward way to play the Apple Car launch, it’s not the highest upside way. Far from it. So, what are the best stocks to buy to play the Apple Car launch?

To answer that, we have to look at potential Apple Car partners. Apple will not develop the Apple Car all by itself. The company has a long history of partnering with and outsourcing parts of the hardware production supply chain to other companies. The Apple Car will be no exception to this trend.

Those Apple Car partners are likely sub-$100 billion companies who could see a huge boost in their value thanks to Apple Car upside.

And so, the question of which stocks to buy to play the launch of the Apple Car is actually a question of which companies will help Tim Cook & Co. develop the long-awaited Apple vehicle.

To that extent, here’s a list of my top 5 stocks to buy as potential Apple Car partners:
Stocks to Buy for Apple Car Launch: Canoo (GOEV)

PIT First U.S. Airport to Deploy Ultraviolet Cleaning – By Robots – Deutschland Sales

At first glance, they look like your average industrial-strength floor scrubbers.
But these autonomous robotic cleaners are anything but ordinary. What makes them particularly special is the integration of ultraviolet lights that augment their traditional cleaning tools, a first for U.S. airports.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, airports and other public spaces are searching for ways to enhance their cleaning methods. Researchers believe UV-C rays, which have been used to sanitize hospital rooms for decades, can be applied in other high-traffic settings, like airports, with similar results.
The scrubbers scour the floor surface with 88 pounds per square inch of water pressure. Chemical disinfectant can be added to the process for a deeper clean, and the UV rays then pass over, creating three different levels of cleaning for the surface….

Researchers will examine the floor surface after the UV scrubber passes over it to determine if any microorganisms remain.

The autonomous scrubbers are the only such third-party safety-certified machines in the world, a certification process approved by the American National Standards Institute that ensures safe operation in public spaces….

About – A mysterious disease is killing chimps in West Africa. Scientists may now know the culprit

 

Young chimpanzees are put in small enclosures to minimize exposure to a lethal disease at the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Sierra Leone. LEAH OWENS
Feb. 3, 2021 , 5:00 AM
Disease ecologist Tony Goldberg was stunned in 2016 when he learned that a mysterious infection was swiftly killing chimpanzees at a lush sanctuary in Sierra Leone’s rainforest. “It was not subtle—the chimpanzees would stagger and stumble, vomit, and have diarrhea,” recalls Goldberg of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. “Sometimes they’d go to bed healthy and be dead in the morning.”
Even when veterinarians gave ill chimps antibiotics and fluids, wrapped them in warm blankets, and isolated them in smaller enclosures to try to prevent the spread of infection, they died. At least 53 perished at the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary between 2005 and 2018.
The refuge is home to nearly 100 chimps rescued from illegal trade, hunting, or abandonment as pets. “It was really upsetting for the staff because there was no end in sight,” says biologist Gregg Tully, executive director of the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance. He sought Goldberg’s help to identify the disease, which is 100% fatal.

Now, after studying tissue samples and DNA from chimpanzees at the sanctuary, Goldberg and his colleagues have identified the likely culprit. In Nature Communications today, they report that a new species of clover-shaped bacterium infected tissue samples from 13 chimps that died, but not samples from 14 healthy chimps.
The mysterious gastrointestinal and neurological disease has not infected veterinarians or other humans. Its closest relative is Sarcina ventriculi, however, a rare cause of gastrointestinal disease that does infect people, as well as cattle, cats, and horses. While researchers worry about any new disease that might jump between apes and humans, their biggest concern is that it will spread to chimpanzees in other sanctuaries and the wild. “Wildlife in sanctuaries are always the most vulnerable to pathogens that are transmissible by air,” says veterinary epidemiologist Sharon Deem of the St. Louis Zoo, not part of the team.
The big break came in 2018, when Goldberg’s graduate student Leah Owens spotted a strange-looking bacterium in the brain tissue of one of the deceased chimpanzees. “Late at night, I was looking through the microscope and I saw this really weird-looking cubic structure,” she recalls. The team had spent several years screening tissues, feces, and blood samples from the sanctuary chimps for pathogens, finding no smoking gun. Owens realized the bacteria on her slide looked like the clover-shaped Sarcina—a finding confirmed by pathologists.
The researchers then sequenced the genome from the bacteria in the sample, finding it most closely matched that of S. ventriculi. Yet it was distinct enough to classify it as a new species, which they propose to call Sarcina troglodytae, after the species of chimpanzee it infects—Pan troglodytes.
Further studies of the DNA from the new species of bacterium show it has genes that make it more virulent than S. ventriculi. The team also wonders whether cases in other animal species that were classified as S. ventriculi might belong to this new species—or other unidentified types of Sarcina.
Owens is applying for grants to try to identify the source of the bacterium by testing samples of water, air, food, and vegetation she and Goldberg gathered at the sanctuary in 2019. One possibility is that the bacterium is ubiquitous, but something in the environment at the sanctuary or in the apes’ physiology is triggering disease. Most cases occur every March during the hot, dry season, when the animals are provisioned with more food.
Veterinarians at the Tacugama sanctuary are already using the new findings: they’re treating a sick chimp with antacids, anticonvulsive, and antibiotics—similar to the treatment in humans—in hopes of saving its life. In the meantime, other researchers hope to test chimpanzees in other sanctuaries for the infection, as well.
