  2. "This Will Trigger A Giant Breakout For Aurora Cannabis A major partnership is the next key catalyst the market is waiting for concerning Aurora Cannabis. What form it'll take will determine the immediate and long-term effects it'll have on the company. Why it's taking a little longer than some other companies even though Aurora Cannabis is obviously the cream of the cannabis crop."

  3. Ray beat me to the wiring diagrams. If your magnets are weak, or the brake shoes are worn, don't piecemeal it. It is far cheaper to buy complete backer plated and magnet, shoes, springs etc. About $90 each. Don't forget to check if they have adjuster screws to manually adjust them. Here are examples of all new assemblies: https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/towing-hitches-jacks-chassis/wheels-brakes/electric-trailer-brake_96-7002 https://www.bing.com/search?q=troubleshootung+ele%3Atric+fifth+wheel+brakes&pc=MOZI&form=MOZLBR

AFSA Headlines · • VA privatization latest battleground for congressional rising stars · • Career Skills Program prepares Airmen for employment after service · • The Air Force Is on a Mission to Fix its Uniforms · • Congress wants more answers about VA campus suicides VA privatization latest battleground for congressional rising stars "A pair of prominent freshman lawmakers offered sharply different views about the future of the Department of Veterans Affairs health care this week, bringing the ongoing debate over fears of department privatization to the next generation of elected leaders. "The duo - Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw - have both built national followings since their elections last fall, and recently have sparred directly over social media concerning rhetoric surrounding Muslims and the Sept. 11 attacks. "But this week marked each legislator's first focused entry into VA policy discussions, and their comments suggested both will make those issues a key focus in months to come - with very different positions on the issue."

Career Skills Program prepares Airmen for employment after service "The Air Force Career Skills Program, or CSP, prepares Airmen through vocational and technical training for a specific career or trade when transitioning from military to civilian employment. "Master Sgt. Angela Santos, superintendent, Education and Technology Branch, Air Force Cryptologic Office, 25th Air Force, first heard about CSP from a friend and headed to the Transition Assistance Program office here, to learn more. "'That is where I learned all I needed to about this program,' Santos said. 'The most important thing to know is that it is a self-initiated opportunity.'" To read more click here. The Air Force Is on a Mission to Fix its Uniforms "The U.S. Air Force for months has been working to redesign gear and flight suits used by female pilots after many years of ill-fitting equipment. "But why stop there? It's also updating current flight suit and gear designs to improve comfort and ease of wear, according to officials working on the project. At the same time, officials want to streamline and expedite the process of shipping these uniforms and support gear anywhere across the world to meet a unit's requirement. "Since his tenure in the Air Force, Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein has called for improved, better-fitting uniforms -- not only for comfort, but also for safety." To read more click here. Congress wants more answers about VA campus suicides "In response to the rising number of suicides in public places at Veterans Affairs medical facilities, lawmakers are considering legislation to mandate the department better track not only those deaths but also all suicide attempts on VA properties in an effort to better prevent them. "On Thursday Rep. Max Rose, D-N.Y., an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, announced plans for a new bill mandating VA officials provide Congress with the medical, financial and housing situation of any veteran who dies by suicide at a department facility, giving lawmakers more insight into what may have preceded the death. "'Getting this data more quickly and thoroughly would guide Congress' efforts in understanding this crisis and preventing these tragedies, Rose said in a statement. 'We must ensure all veterans have the services they need when they need them, plain and simple.'" To read more click here.

  8. Darryl, ?? I use Firefox?? This was about how Microsoft helped Chrome and made it better, not Edge, and the benefits to both from working together. Edge has changed to a Chrome base, not the old base Edge had in what is now called classic Edge. If you click on the article you will find it is about Chrome not Edge benefitting alone. You see the open source community, Google, and Microsoft are now working together to the benefit of all. Are you under the mythconception this was an attempt to influence folks to switch to edge? Click on the links I always provide to the source for clarification. Excerpt from the article I linked to, and the above was about: "Proposal accepted The good news is the contribution from Microsoft was reviewed and approved by the open source community. That’s not all, Microsoft’s code has been merged into Chromium and Canary builds( via WL). If you are using Chrome Canary you notice a flag named “Enable Compositor threaded scrollbar scrolling.” Microsoft said that all the followup changelists with regard to scrolling issues will be stagged under the flag."

  9. We will start with the aviation breakthroughs, and then I'll update the car and electric bicycle latest news. I am amazed daily by the strides being made in aviation for electric power. Just read on. Excerpt: The amount of breakthroughs and progress electric aviation has made this past decade are awe inspiring. We’ve got news practically every day of electric airplanes (e-planes) and electric vertical takeoff & landing (eVTOL) aircraft under development, planned for market, or already arriving. When you look back to long-off dreams of electric VTOL aircraft back in the ’90s, today’s reality is astounding. Lift Air’s Flight Design General Aviation GmbH is a German aircraft design and manufacturing company that has announced a new 4-seat airplane that could be certified in a year. But the important part of the new release is that it is energy agnostic, which means it is ready for a full electric propulsion system. The Flight Design line called CTLS is a new modular model capable of adapting to various energy systems. In many ways, this is an important sign of the maturity of the electric aviation market. The electric vehicle (EV) parallel would be when new cars today are designed to be energy agnostic, using electricity or gasoline. In many ways, it also shows how quickly electric aviation has picked up, a testament to how far battery energy density has come in a short while. Most VTOL projects so far are hybrids/electric, but most, if not all are designed to switch over to electricity as soon as technology allows, as we mentioned with the Bell Nexus eVTOL air taxi. The new Flight Design F4 is a 4-seat model certified under FAR 23 — CS23 to the rest of the world — and is a stretched, modified, beefed-up version of the CTLS airframe. The wingspan and fuselage length have been increased and bring the gross weight to 1100 kg (2420 lb) with a predicted 150- to 160-knot range. Although Flight Design hasn’t mentioned any price yet, Matthias Betsch said the company was targeting under $300,000." More with hot links here: https://cleantechnica.com/2019/04/20/when-airplanes-are-designed-to-be-energy-agnostic-you-know-electricity-is-banging-at-the-door/?utm_source=CleanTechnica+News&utm_campaign=a109f772f9-Daily+Email+CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b9b83ee7eb-a109f772f9-331970081 Now on to the cars that run on electric and news in that market from 2003 to 2008 when Tesla produced the Roadster, we have gone from folks, both here on this forum, and around the US, stating BEVS (Battery Electric Vehicles - not hybrids which are PHEVs Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicles) will never come to production and Tesla was a pump and dump. A crock disguised as investing advice. Some of it can be seen in the thread here "Are you still in?" which goes from 2011 to present. But Tesla had already manufactured and sold the Roadster in 2008 and unlike the US big three automakers did not need bailing out directly or with Gov't guaranteed loans like Ford to the tune of $30billion. However, from 2003 when I first posted here about Tesla, to 2008 when they came out with their first model, the Roadster, it was said and implied that Tesla was just trying to do what we have seen Elio Motors do, just sell people on buying in with no production, only prototypes. Unless Elio, like Tesla, goes into production, they are a total scam. But the smug responses to the very idea of a BEV ranging from it is a fake to no one will buy it from 2003 to 2008, ended in 2008 when they built and sold out their first model, were here and elsewhere amazingly uninformed and reliant on claptrap. The resistance to change, and obvious lack of research not originating from Koch brothers paid for white papers, and the new repeal of several laws of physics by non scientists and politicians with a fossil fuel agenda claiming fossil fuels burn clean? These pseudo scientists claim that there are no by products from fossil fuels with a complete burn. However Carbon Dioxide is always produced and is a primary "greenhouse gas." But that assumes a clean fuel which outside of a laboratory cannot be had, never mind the hundreds of additives in our fossil fuels. Just the fossil fuel additives can add 100 times the toxins as the natural gas, propane, gasoline, diesel, other fuel oils alone. Coal and wood burning are outside the scope of vehicle pollutions and toxic combustion by products. There are charts there for each fossil fuel pollutant in the full article here from Penn State University: https://www.e-education.psu.edu/egee102/node/1951 We have seen BEVs go from toys and little more than golf carts to 300-500 mile range currently available but with the performance of million dollar super cars like Porsches, Lambos, Ferraris, and Bugatti's have. Now, the emerging tech is including direct solar charging in both vehicles on the ground and aircraft. Excerpt: "SAAB always built quirky cars, starting with the 2-cylinder two stroke SAAB 92 in 1949. After the company filed for bankruptcy in 2012, its assets — including the factory in Trollhätten, Sweden — were acquired by National Electric Vehicle Sweden. Fast forward to 2019. That factory will now be silent no more. NEVS and Sono Motors have agreed to a deal that will see Sono’s innovative solar powered electric car, the Sion, manufactured there. The Sion will be the first production car to feature solar panels embedded in the body of the car. The company says those panels are 21% efficient and can generate enough electricity to power the Sion for up to 21 miles on a sunny day. The 5-door hatchback Sion is small enough to fit easily into most urban environments. The Sion is priced at €25,500 and the company says it already has almost 10,000 pre-orders for the car. Plans call for NEVS to produce a total of 260,000 cars at the factory between 2020 and 2028 according to CNET Roadshow. After a production ramp-up, the goal is to build 43,000 cars per year. The factory is said to be powered by 100% renewable energy. The Sion has a 35 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a 163 horsepower electric drive motor. Range using the current WLTP standard is 158 miles. Plugging in to a standard household outlet will recharge the battery in 30 minutes, the company says. There is no provision for DC charging. Standard household current in Europe is 220 volts instead of the 110 volts common in North America. The Sion has a 10-inch center display and smartphone connectivity via WiFi or Bluetooth. The ventilation system is called breSono and incorporates a dollop of moss, which is said to act as a natural filter when an electrical charge is applied. Maybe not the same as the BioWeapons Defense mode of a Tesla but an interesting take on providing filtered air for the passenger compartment. There are no plans at the moment to bring the Sion to North America." More and a picture of the car in the original article here: https://cleantechnica.com/2019/04/20/nevs-will-build-sion-solar-powered-electric-car-at-former-saab-factory-in-sweden/?utm_source=CleanTechnica+News&utm_campaign=a109f772f9-Daily+Email+CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b9b83ee7eb-a109f772f9-331970081 "What has room for 6 passengers, an all-electric range of up to 155 miles, and a body covered in solar panels that can add as many as 18 miles of driving a day from sunlight? That would be the Sono Motors Sion, an innovative solar-powered car from a team of German entrepreneurs that is scheduled to have its world debut on July 27. The Sion project was able to move forward thanks to an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign last year that raised over a half million dollars. More than 1,000 people have participated so far. The car will have two versions. The Urban comes with a 14.4 kilowatt-hour battery pack. It has a range of about 75 miles and will cost $13,200. The Extender version has a 30 kilowatt-hour battery and a range of 155 miles. Its target price is $17,600. Neither price includes the battery. Like the Renault Zoe, customers will either buy the battery separately or lease it. The leasing option gives owners the flexibility to upgrade the battery later as improvements in battery technology become available. The hood, roof, and rear hatch of the Sion are covered with monocrystalline silicon cells that are 21% efficient. On a sunny day, they can generate enough electricity to add 18 miles of range. The solar cells are 8 millimeters thick and embedded in a polycarbonate layer that is shatterproof, weather resistant, and light in weight. The Sion can also be 80% charged using an AC outlet in about 30 minutes, according to company claims. No DC charging option is available. The car also comes with an outlet that can power electronic devices. Inside, all the seats of the 5 door hatchback fold flat, offering multiple configurations for carrying passengers and cargo. There is a 10 inch center display and smartphone connectivity via WiFi or Bluetooth. The ventilation system is called breSono and incorporates a dollop of moss, which is said to act as a natural filter when an electrical charge is applied. The company will offer an online maintenance and repair system it calls reSono. It allows owners to order parts online and comes with a video that shows them how to install the parts when they arrive. Or they can take the car and the parts to any local auto repair shop facility to get them installed. Test drives will be available starting in September, with production beginning next year. Sono is emulating the approach used by DHL with its electric delivery vans. It is sourcing most of the components to build its cars from existing OEM suppliers so it can concentrate on getting the design right and incorporating suggestions from its online community into the final product. The Sion is perhaps a bit small for American customers but it should appeal strongly to Europeans who live in crowded cities where parking is at a premium." I would buy the battery and then buy another if that was an advantage later as new tech develops. The body/chassis/suspension will have wear and tear too after a half million miles. YMMV. More here too: https://cleantechnica.com/2017/07/13/solar-powered-car-sono-motors-will-unveiled-july-27/ So many claim BEV and PHEV buyer incentives are only benefitting the rich, but ignore the trillions in subsidies the fossil fuels industry takes from the government. Here are the EV incentives offered by some states: Tesla federal tax credits are ending at some point so check with the manufacturer to see if buying their car will get the max $7500 tax credit or partial tax credit. Here are the current Federal guidelines: https://www.irs.gov/businesses/plug-in-electric-vehicle-credit-irc-30-and-irc-30d on to Tesla news: Tesla Nevada Gigafactory — Something Strange Is Going On, But It’s Not What You Think https://cleantechnica.com/2019/04/20/tesla-nevada-gigafactory-something-strange-is-going-on-but-its-not-what-you-think/?utm_source=CleanTechnica+News&utm_campaign=a109f772f9-Daily+Email+CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b9b83ee7eb-a109f772f9-331970081 An Electric Bike That Reads Your Mind? https://cleantechnica.com/2019/04/20/an-electric-bike-that-reads-your-mind/?utm_source=CleanTechnica+News&utm_campaign=a109f772f9-Daily+Email+CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b9b83ee7eb-a109f772f9-331970081 There are a lot of investment opportunities in all aspects of renewable energy.

  10. Microsoft has worked to integrate the Chrome base code into Edge browser and by working together Chrome now has advantages from Microsoft's work on Chrome. Interesting read! Excerpt: "Open source platforms only flourish when software giants like Microsoft actively contribute to them. This is exactly what’s happening in the Chromium world. Now that Microsoft Edge is also a beneficiary of the open source platform Chromium, Microsoft is working on a new feature that would make scrolling in Chromium browsers as good as the classic Edge browser. To make scrolling experience a lot Edge(classic)-like, Microsoft is planning to move the composite scrollbar to the impl thread. This will let users continue to interact with and scroll using scrollbars even when the main thread is busy. Microsoft explains, “Scrollbar scrolling using the mouse happens on the main thread in Chromium. If the main thread is busy (due to reasons like long running JS, etc), scrolling by clicking on the scrollbar will appear to be janky as the events keep getting queued up on the MainThreadEventQueue, waiting for the main thread to free up.” “We observe on average scrollbar drags have ~2-4x higher latency in Chromium as compared to EdgeHTML today, worse on particularly busy sites. We attribute this gap primarily to EdgeHTML’s feature for off-thread scrollbar drags. By avoiding the main thread in Chromium as well, we believe we can bring the performance of scrollbar drags more in line with what we observe in EdgeHTML.” More and how to use it in Chrome here: https://mspoweruser.com/scrolling-on-chromium-browsers-might-soon-be-as-good-as-the-classic-edge-thanks-to-microsoft/

  13. Hi Duck! I notice this is your first post. You might want to post that in General RV Information for more response. If you are military vet or retired we can answer if any of us are there. I am in NW Louisiana, and have heard of no closures but we will have a weather front move in later this week. Why not call the RV park you plan on staying at and ask them if they have any show stopper flooding expected? THat's what I would do. In any event, welcome to the Escapee Forums and a great group of folks, with a few grumps thrown in for good measure. Read around a lot here and you'll get the hang of the forums here. I hope everything goes well for you visit to Historic Vicksburg.
  14. Mark and Kim that info is of interest to me and other USAF vets that have been there or stationed there at any base. Mark, I am fully re-tired and that is a full time job! Thanks but I have my move, to our new home in Colorado Springs, and selling this house and most of the contents, vehicles, Zero turn, push, self-propelled push mowers, Craftsman riding mower/lawn tractor, Ford Workmaster 601 I totally restored but with electronic 12 volt ignition and new everything else. My new 2019 Forester is a whole learning curve in itself, man is it heavy on technology! Years ago when Mark Nemeth was running the forums as admin I asked him to start this Veterans forum, so we could pass along info on congress critter votes that impact our benefits be they retirees, medically retired, active duty, and active reserves, so we could contact our representatives either way, as well as items of interest to vets and not others. I am about to post the Military.com Air Force Insider here too. Have a better day!

  18. Here are pics and videos of the damage at Offut AFB. Some of us have lived through natural disasters and pitched in while active duty. But the bases were not affected as much save for coastal hurricane damages that are to be expected. But not on bases away from coastal areas and volcano/earthquake activity before as now. Excerpt: "Floods suggest national security threat from climate change OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. (AP) — The Missouri River floodwater surging on to the air base housing the U.S. military's Strategic Command overwhelmed round-the-clock sandbagging by airmen and others. They had to scramble to save sensitive equipment, munitions and dozens of aircraft. Days into the flooding, muddy water was still lapping at almost 80 flooded buildings at Nebraska's Offutt Air Force Base, some inundated by up to 7 feet (2.1 meters) of water. Piles of waterlogged corn cobs, husks and stalks lay heaped everywhere that the water had receded, swept onto the base from surrounding fields. "In the end, obviously, the waters were just too much. It took over everything we put up," Col. David Norton, who is in charge of facilities at the base, told an Associated Press reporter on a tour of the damage. "The speed at which it came in was shocking." Though the headquarters of Strategic Command, which plays a central role in detecting and striking at global threats, wasn't damaged, the flooding provided a dramatic example of how climate change poses a national security threat, even as the Trump administration plays down the issue. It is also a reminder that the kind of weather extremes escalating with climate change aren't limited to the coasts, said retired Rear Adm. David W. Titley, founder of both the Navy's Task Force on Climate Change and the Center for Solutions to Weather and Climate Risk at Penn State University. Earlier heavy flooding at Offutt has prompted the base to start raising its levee by 2 feet this year, said Maj. Meghan M. Liemburg-Archer, spokeswoman for Strategic Command. Sandbagging had held back 2011 floods at the base. The flooding that poured in starting March 15 was worse, Norton, the base's support group commander, said. "It was all hands on deck," Norton said. "All through the night, we worked. It was thousands of people, in total, working to sandbag, move in huge Hesco barriers; a whole host of people clearing equipment out of facilities, moving munitions ... even crews doing things like disconnecting power. It was a massive effort." More than 30 aircraft were towed to higher ground or flown to other locations. Crews hauled out loads of equipment, engines and tools. By Saturday, the flood had rolled over a third of the base, swamping more than 1.2 million square feet of buildings. Though Strategic Command headquarters escaped flooding, it had to cut staff to a minimum as high water blocked roads. The command holds down a range of responsibilities, including global strike capacity, missile defense, nuclear operations and strategic deterrence. Inundated buildings include the 55th Wing headquarters, the massive Bennie L. Davis Maintenance Facility and a building that houses the 55th Wing's flight simulators. About 3,000 feet of the base's 11,700-foot runway is submerged. "The good news is that no one on the base was injured," Norton said. "We know how lucky we are." https://news.yahoo.com/floods-expose-threat-military-posed-climate-change-043404175--politics.html
  19. Hey guy, I know! Tilray is selling for $59.54 as of close April 5th 2019.https://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/tlry Aurora is selling at the same close for $9.17 https://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/acb Considering the positions on capacity and market shares Tilray should be much lower and Aurora much higher. Notice the one year high and low prices for them both and you see what I mean: Tilray: 52 Week High / Low $ 300 / $ 20.10 Aurora: 52 Week High / Low$ 10.32 / $ 4.58 I believe Tilray is at the end of their major shareholder volatility and there will not be as much upward movement for their stock as opposed to Aurora which will rise to equal, or rise close to Tilray in the next years. I had 1000 shares of Tesla when I sold last year when it was up past $340 a share. I bought 5000 of Aurora for a long term investment. I believe it can do at least half as well as Tesla did, if not more. Or I can lose almost exactly what I initially invested in Tesla and that money is discretionary as were my Tesla shares. I can lose it without it affecting my retirement or lifestyle. This and NBEV are only my second and third time I invested in individual stocks, as opposed to funds and property I buy cash. I bought Tesla at $17 -22.5 so less shares then for the same capital as now. I expect to see these shares go at least to equal where Tilray stock prices are today.
  20. For RVrs on the road using Windows machines these changes are awesome! Excerpt: "Microsoft Abandons Windows 10’s Constant Forced Updates Microsoft has a major announcement today: Windows 10 will no longer automatically install those big feature updates every six months. Home users can pause smaller updates, too. In fact, Windows will even let you pause updates after checking for them! This is huge. It’s Microsoft’s biggest change in Windows strategy since the company released Windows 10. Microsoft is giving up on “Windows as a service” that is automatically updated outside of your control." The article has hort links to related material but is a quick 2 minute read that tells you that the biggest aggravations of updates and semi annual major version updates are either going away or giving you control. Click on the links in the article to get more details here: https://www.howtogeek.com/410183/microsoft-abandons-windows-10s-forced-updates/ I also posted an in depth post and article with the Changes to Windows itself coming in May in the Other Topics/Computer forum here:
