Finally, Porsche CEO Speaks On All-Electric Mission E Pricing — OsunDefender

After rumors that the four-door will actually enter production to challenge Tesla’s growing dominance in the EV market, the silence had been deafening. Well that seems to be behind us as the German carmaker’s CEO Oliver Blume has shared concrete information on the Mission E’s release date and pricing. Development on the production version of the Mission E is on schedule, with prototypes to start public testing in the near future, Blume said in an interview with Car Magazine earlier in the week at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

A Million Pythons Cannot Dance Away The Biafra Question By ‘Fisayo Soyombo — OsunDefender


Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. — Albert Einstein Whoever he is, the military officer who coined the codename ‘Python Dance’ is a genius. Although an original version of the military operation, the Python Dance I, held between November 27 and December 27, 2016, no one should have looked any further than the codename to deduce the possible outcome of the army’s latest incursion into the south-east. As a rebel scientist, I’ll break this down. ‘Python Dance’ more than mere nomenclature Although they are a family of nonvenomous snakes, pythons, scientifically Pythonidae, can be extremely dangerous. They are some of the largest snakes in the world, and are notorious ambush predators in that they typically lay motionless to evade the notice of a passing prey but then suddenly strike when danger is least expected. Ordinarily, no one should tease the python — that is where Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) got it wrong. Even thou ...continue
