After yesterday’s Tesla Battery Day, third-party lithium-ion battery manufacturer might be quite surprised and uncertain about the future.

Tesla clearly continues on its path of vertical integration, hinting at significant improvements on the technological level and advancing also on the in-house battery production front.

The pilot plant for 4680 cells is expected to reach a production output of 10 GWh annually at some point in 2021, which alone is a huge level. The target of 100 GWh in 2022 is also very ambitious.

Tesla’s Elon Musk said that the automaker will continue to purchase cells from existing (and maybe new) suppliers, because it will not be able to produce enough of its own batteries anyway, but still the share price of the biggest EV battery manufacturers declined.

According to Automotive News, LG Chem went down by 5.5%, CATL by 4.7%, while Panasonic by 4.3%.

News Story Source: https://insideevs.com by Mark Kane
At Battery Day, Tesla has outlined a plan to significantly improve the energy density of its battery systems, reduce the price per unit, and also reduce investment costs in new manufacturing capacity.

Here we will stop for a while at the range increase, which is expected to reach 54%, as a result of multiple factors.

Cumulative outcome:

Range increase by 54%

Price reduction ($/kWh) by 56%

Investment ($/GWh) reduction by 69%

54% is not a small improvement, especially since Tesla’s batteries are considered as one of the most energy-dense already.

The company intends to achieve its goal through improvements in several major areas.

Range increase factors:

cell design: 16%

anode material: 20%

cathode material: 4%

cell vehicle integration: 14%

Total range increase: 54%

According to Electrek, internal systems were fully down and around 11am ET, leaving users unable to connect their vehicles to the mobile app.

Tesla staff were also unable “to process deliveries and orders” and the company’s website wasn’t working.

The outage also hit Tesla solar and Powerwall, the company’s in-home batteries.

Andrew Kaufman, MD: The Pandemic Fraud Runs Deeper Than You Think

News Story Source: https://needtoknow.news
He says he has uncovered an even bigger fraud that applies to all viral illnesses and, if he is right, the germ theory of disease will need to be scrapped and replaced by the terrain theory. Since that would be the end of the vaccine industry, we expect Hell to be be unleashed against Dr. Kaufman, not to challenge his theory on the basis of science, but to attack him as a person. Dr. Kaufman will be presenting his findings at G. Edward Griffin’s Red Pill Expo to be held at Jekyll Island, Georgia, October 10 and 11.

Living in a Van, Down by the River. . .

This Mercedes Sprinter van, for instance.

For openers, it’s the only new Mercedes you can still buy in the U.S. with a diesel engine. Which is a good idea, in the event the world comes unglued because diesels go farther and last longer. They also pull stronger – and that’s a boon for a van, especially one you might decide to live in.

Many people use the Sprinter van for exactly that. Because they are ideally suited for that. Mercedes offers the van in short and long wheelbase iterations (144 and 170 inches, respectively) as well as half ton (1500) and three-quarter-ton (2500) and with standard, medium or tall roof choices, a gas or diesel engine (in the 2500) and almost limitless customization options, including seats for three  . . . or fifteen.

Plus, the one thing that comes standard with every Sprinter which you can’t get in any other van:

It’s a Mercedes van.

Which means it’s a nicer van in its bones than other v

Some are quick to promote apps as being safe for your use just because they are encrypted. I will talk about how many of the popular apps that are commonly thought to be safe because of encryption are actually wrought with danger because pundits who claim this knowledge haven’t really thought about the flaws of each of these apps.

The main flaw is something called a relationship map. Because of the meta data surrounding the use of each of these apps, this flaw can result in complete identification of all parties involved in a conversation and their profiles. I will explain how this occurs and how understanding how this works is part of what the intelligence community calls SIGINT (Signals Intelligence).

Watch and learn about this little puzzle that will challenge your brain and your thought process.

Belarusian President Lukashenko Sworn Into Office

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

On August 9, incumbent Belarusian President Lukashenko was legitimately reelected by a near-62% majority, a landslide by any standard — his closest rival Svetlana Tikhanovskaya receiving only 25% support.

He won. She lost, nothing illegitimate about the results — other than the unnecessary artificially inflated margin of victory to an 80% – 10% victory margin.

On Wednesday, Lukashenko was sworn into office ahead of schedule because of made-in-the-USA street protests that continue.

According to the Belarus Telegraph Agency, “members of the House of Representatives and the Council of the Republic, heads of government bodies and organizations, local executive and executive bodies, the national media, scientists, figures of culture and sports” attended the inaugural ceremony in Minsk’s Palace of Independence.

Russia Intends Military Cooperation with Iran When UN Arms Embargo Expires

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

On issues related to the JCPOA nuclear deal and expiring UN arms embargo on Iran next month, the Trump regime is isolated on the world stage.

Commenting on its unlawful imposition of what it called “snapback” sanctions on Iran, its  Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh explained the following:

Nothing in the JCPOA or Security Council Res. 2231 affirming the landmark agreement refers to snapback or a trigger mechanism.

This terminology is a made-in-the USA “forgery…What is stated in the resolution and in the JCPOA is the ‘dispute resolution mechanism.’ ”

Trump regime “maximum pressure” and related actions have no legal standing.

Khatibzadeh stressed that Trump’s America first motto became “America only,” a self-defeatist policy ov
