Nov 22, 2017

The State Attorney General’s Office (Fiscalía General de Justicia del Estado de México) declared in a statement that after a reconstruction of the events it was found that the bullet that killed Adolfo Lagos was shot by one of his bodyguards. Both guards were following the victim a few meters behind on board a truck, and they fired their weapons as they realized that the executive was being assaulted while riding his bicycle. “After the authopsy, it was possible to extract a bullet … the result of the tests carried out, both agencies coincides in determining that the bullet that was extracted from the body of the victim, due to its ballistic characteristics, was shot by the weapon carried by the person who was driving the truck at the time of the events ” said the State Attorney General’s Office. Adolfo Lagos Espinosa was shot on the Tulancingo-Pirámides highway; according to the first investigations, theft was the main line. Lagos Espinosa was riding his bike along with Luis Reynoso Gutiérrez when two subjects came out of the bushes to strip them of their bicycles, valued at 100 thousand pesos each. They were followed at a distance by Lagos’ bodyguards, on a gray Jeep Cherokee with license plate P19-ACU from Mexico City, who opened fire on the thieves, apparently injuring Lagos  and one of the assailants, who somehow managed to flee the scene on foot....

USA, Mexico and Canada are stuck in NAFTA renegotiations

USA, Mexico and Canada are stuck in NAFTA renegotiations

Nov 21, 2017

Another round of  NAFTA talks has closed with a deadlocked situation last on Tuesday, as negotiators were getting ready to leave Mexico City with lots of questions and no answers on relevant issues regarding the trade agreement renegotiation, even though there was progress on several technical issues, some less-controversial chapters like digital trade, sanitary measures, customs enforcement and telecommunications are almost done, but there are still unsolved matters. But on real problematic files such as the automotive industry, dairy, dispute resolution, and the idea to make it easier to terminate NAFTA which had been proposed by the USA, there was no significant progress whatsoever, and Mexican sources said that there was a standoff on various problems that Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland had mentioned and stressed in Ottawa. “There are some areas where more extreme (U.S.) proposals have been put forward. These are proposals we simply cannot agree to,” Freeland said outside the House of Commons. “What we’ve done in some of these areas is ask for a better understanding of those proposals. We really feel a fact-based approach is the way to get a good result… (We’re asking): ‘Do you agree with our facts, or do you disagree with our facts?”‘ An American familiar with the talks says the other countries would be better off making counter-proposals, rather than what they did at this round – show up with presentations about how damaging the American proposals would be to the U.S. itself. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer warned on Tuesday that unless Canada and Mexico engage on their major NAFTA demands, the negotiations “will not reach a satisfactory result.” In a statement, Lighthizer said he was “concerned about the lack of headway,” in the talks. “Thus far, we have seen no evidence that Canada or Mexico are willing to seriously engage on provisions that will lead to a rebalanced agreement,” Lighthizer said, adding that he hoped the two U.S. neighbors “come to the table in a serious way so we can see meaningful progress before the end of the year.” A front-page headline in Mexico’s Excelsior newspaper described the dynamic this way: “‘Mexico and Canada form a common front against the U.S.” Mexicans...

TESLA to unveil first electric battery powered truck

TESLA to unveil first electric battery powered truck

Nov 21, 2017

Tesla has unveiled its first electric articulated lorry, designed to challenge diesel trucks as king of the road. The long-anticipated Tesla Semi has a range of 500 miles on a single charge. Tesla says the vehicle – known in the US as a semi-trailer truck – will go into production in 2019. Photo Credits: © Tesla The Tesla Semi will achieve 0-60mph in 20 seconds when pulling 36,287kgs (80,000lbs), the maximum allowed on US roads. Speaking on stage at Tesla’s facility in Los Angeles, chief executive Elon Musk said: “It’s not like any truck that you’ve ever driven.” With Tesla Semi, Mr Musk enters a competitive, demanding market. There are an estimated 3.5 million truck drivers in the US, the vast majority of whom drive diesel-powered engines. Tesla will not be able to compete on diesel’s range, and battery specialists doubt Tesla can produce a powerful enough battery at a reasonable price. Photo Credits: © Tesla A Carnegie Mellon study concluded that a 300-mile-capable battery pack costs about $200,000,which is much higher than a diesel-powered semi-truck, which costs about $120,000, on average, for the entire vehicle. As well as coming up against diesel incumbents, Tesla also faces other electric rivals. Concept electric big rigs have been unveiled by Daimler, Volkswagen and Cummins – though all fall short on range, and none are currently on the roads.

A statement from Tesla boasted that jackknifing is prevented due to the Semi’s onboard sensors that detect instability and react with positive or negative torque to each wheel while independently actuating all brakes.
