Startup Rivian Forging the Way with Unique E-Vehicle Platform
Reports indicate that Lincoln will be a big beneficiary of Ford's $500 million investment in Detroit e-vehicle startup Rivian. Amazon is also investing in the company. Lincoln is expected to use Rivian's skateboard-styled platform for a Lincoln electric SUV coming out in 2022. This would be the first example of Ford's plans to co-develop a vehicle based on Rivian's electric car platform.
Rivian's platform is a highly modular, battery-electric design. It resembles a skateboard. The system can deliver up to 700 horsepower. It fits batteries up to 180 kilowatt hours in size. Rivian is using the platform for its own R1T pick-up truck and R1S SUV that will go into production in late 2020. Rivian says the SUV gets 400 miles in range. And in 30 minutes, the batteries charge to add 200 more miles in range.
Ford Going Electric
Ford is significantly investing in electric vehicles. In fact, it is separately developing its own electric vehicle platform. One was just unveiled on the Ford 2021 Mustang Mach-E, the all electric SUV based on the iconic Mustang brand.
Continuous Supply of New Neurons Tied to Lifetime Learning & Memory Important Discovery by University of Pennsylvania Medical School Scientists
This is breakthrough research from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. The scientists have shown for the first time that brain neurons grow and develop over a lifetime from a single population of stem cells in the hippocampus region of the brain. That region is the brain's center of memory and learning. It's also a key area of reaction to stress and mood adjustments.
Why is This Important to You
The discovery underscores how a continuous supply of new neurons throughout life is the source of youthful like learning and memory throughout your life. The discovery was found in research on mice. And, it sets a new benchmark. It helps neuroscientists to determine how to enable youthful life brain conditions for memory and learning for all of us throughout our lives. It's also a path of discovery to repair and regen…
IBM has unveiled the world's first commercial and standalone quantum computer. The IBM Q System One is the first quantum computer to leave the research lab. It's on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The computer sits inside a 9 foot tall and 9 foot wide glass case. It is the same display case as the one that protects the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London. The computer is so powerful it leaves supercomputers in the dust.

1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists
CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the
head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.
