Tags Porsche Taycan on ice in Sweden Porsche Volkswagen Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment Share your voice Enlarge ImageWe’ve already taken the Taycan drifting on ice in Sweden. Now, we just can’t wait to see the darn thing without camouflage. Porsche While the Porsche Taycan electric sports car and the Volkswagen ID 3 electric mass-market hatchback have about as much in common as a tuna fish sandwich and Euler’s formula, they are still both electric cars that happen to offer reservations ahead of production. You might think the much more affordable car would garner a bit more attention than the expensive one; you might also be wrong.According to a report from German-language business newspaper Handelsblatt this weekend, Porsche board member Andreas Haffner indicated that Porsche has 30,000 orders for the Taycan already. This is a pretty large leap from the last estimate we heard in March, when Porsche said over 20,000 people had registered their interest.Consultant and analyst Matthias Schmidt pointed out in a tweet that, according to the most recent data, Porsche has more Taycan reservations than Volkswagen has reservations for the ID 3 electric hatchback. VW’s most recent deposit estimate, about 22,000, came from Jürgen Stackmann, the VW board member responsible for sales and marketing.While it might seem odd that a car with, in all likelihood, at least twice the base price will command more reservations, it makes sense. VW’s ID 3 hatchback is a mass-market vehicle, part of a giant onslaught that will feature multiple body types, and not everyone might want the ID 3 itself over, say, an ID Buzz or an ID Crozz. On the other hand, the Taycan is the first electric Porsche, which carries a bit of cachet, and Porsche fanatics and moneyed EV geeks alike are probably champing at the bit to pick a Taycan up as quickly as possible.Porsche is set to unveil the Taycan in early September. While it’s working on the frontend stuff, it’s also massively investing in its backend, throwing some 6 billion euro at its manufacturing facilities to handle Taycan production. The automaker is clearly impressed with demand for the car, as it’s already made moves to double first-year production from 20,000 cars to 40,000. With a starting price between the Cayenne and Panamera, it shouldn’t break the bank, either.(Hat tip to InsideEVs!) 0 42 Photos Ice drifting in Porsche’s all-electric Taycan 2020 Toyota 4Runner first drive: Same as it ever was — mostly 5:27 Electric Cars Sports Cars Future Cars Hatchbacks More From Roadshow 2020 Mini JCW Clubman first drive: A fast alternative for the crossover-averse Porsche Volkswagen 2020 Kia Soul review: Well-rounded box
Three Dhaka University (DU) students, who were handed over to police from Fazlul Huq Muslim Hall on Tuesday morning on charge of spreading rumours on Facebook, were released in the afternoon, reports UNB.The students are Tariqul Islam of mathematics department, Mashiur Rahman Sadik of institute of information and communication technology and Zobaidul Haque Rony of physics department.Leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) allegedly beat them up and handed over to the police over the allegation of spreading rumours.They were released around 4:00pm after students under the banner of ‘students against repression’ went to the proctor and demanded his step to release the detainees.The proctor assured them of taking steps to this end and later, the trio was freed.Officer-in-charge of Shahbagh police station Abul Hasan said they released the students as they did not find any evidence of spreading rumours against them.
US president Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un arrive to sign a document to acknowledge the progress of the talks and pledge to keep momentum going, after their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on 12 June. Photo: ReutersUS president Donald Trump said Tuesday there is no hurry to denuclearize North Korea under his accord with Kim Jong Un-a shift in tone from when the US leader said the process would start very soon.“Discussions are ongoing and they’re going very, very well,” Trump told reporters.“We have no time limit. We have no speed limit.”Trump said he discussed North Korea with Russian president Vladimir Putin on Monday at their summit in Helsinki.“President Putin is going to be involved in the sense that he is with us,” Trump said.The Republican president met with Kim on 12 June for an unprecedented summit in Singapore during which the North Korean leader pledged to work toward denuclearization of the peninsula.But the accord did not spell out a timetable for the process or say how it would be carried out. Diplomats are now expected to hammer out the details.More than a month later, no concrete progress has been reported and North Korea has complained the Americans are making unilateral demands.Before the Singapore summit, the Trump administration said denuclearization should start “without delay,” and after the meeting, it spoke of the process beginning “very quickly.”A day after the meeting, US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said the bulk of North Korea’s denuclearization should be completed by the end of Trump’s term in 2020.The White House has hailed the summit between Kim and Trump in Singapore as a major breakthrough toward disarming the isolated, nuclear-armed North in exchange for easing of sanctions and other help with economic development.Pompeo met with Kim’s key aide this month during his latest trip to Pyongyang but as soon as he left, the North’s foreign ministry berated him over his “unilateral and gangster-like” demands.Trump last week signaled optimism however, unveiling a letter from Kim in which the young leader hailed the “start of a meaningful journey” and tweeting “Great progress being made!”
Share MIGUEL GUTIERREZ JR. / KUTAs health care providers prepare for a new Texas rule requiring the burial or cremation of fetal remains, some funeral homes wonder how the rule will apply to them and express concern over the rule’s implications.Abortion providers are hoping to stop a new rule that would require health care facilities to cremate or bury fetal remains from miscarriages and abortions, regardless of the gestation time or a woman’s wishes.Filed on Monday, the federal lawsuit brought by Whole Woman’s Health and others claims the new rule, which is set to go into effect on Dec. 19, is unconstitutional.Gov. Greg Abbott has supported the rule, though, and has said fetal remains shouldn’t be treated like medical waste.However, health care providers – and even funeral homes – are worried the implications of this rule are unclear and possibly costly. Darryl Thompson runs the Weed-Corley-Fish funeral home on the edge of UT Austin’s campus. He says for years now he’s worked with a local Catholic hospital as part of a community service. Sometimes he’s asked to deal with the fetal remains of a miscarriage for families.Usually, he says, the hospital chaplain arranges a funeral at a local cemetery. Other times, he’s asked to step in.“Families are certainly given the opportunity to make disposition of their family members and, if they elect not to, then the hospital will call us and we will take care of that process,” Thompson explained. “Now, this is one specific group.”Catholic hospitals do things this way because they believe life begins at conception, but not all health care providers are Catholic—or even religious.However, the State of Texas is soon going to require all health care providers to deal with fetal remains this way. That includes remains from abortions and miscarriages. This means Thompson could go from doing this work once every three months – like he does now – to doing it way more often. How often, though, Thompson says, he has no idea.“We haven’t been provided with any information other than this rule will take effect on the 19th of December,” he said. While he doesn’t have an opinion on the rule itself, he says the fact that there’s so much uncertainty is what bothers him.Because this was an agency rule – not a bill –stakeholders like Thompson didn’t have as much input. There was a public comment period and some hearings, but not much came of that. The rules moved forward despite the fact that the medical community – including the Texas Medical Association and Texas Hospital Association – has significant issues with this.LISTEN: KUT’s Ashley Lopez reports“I really feel this was a very rapid, quick decision,” Thompson said. “I don’t think that all the implications were considered.”But not everyone thinks this was haphazard. Amy Hagstrom Miller is the CEO of a chain of abortion providers in the state called Whole Woman’s Health. She says state leaders introduced this rule after her group bested the state in a court battle over another set of restrictive abortion regulations.“Texas put forward these proposed rules just four days after our June victory in the Supreme Court, and I think there is a direct connection,” she said. “And I think this time, once again, Texas has really gone too far.”This is why Miller is going back to court. This week, Whole Woman’s Health, and others, filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas.Part of what they’re arguing is that the law is really vague and it’s hard to figure out what compliance with the rule would actually look like. JORGE SANHUEZA-LYON / KUTDarryl Thompson, director of the Weed-Corley-Fish funeral home on North Lamar Boulevard.Then there are the costs.Funerals are thousands of dollars, which would make them prohibitively expensive for most women. Cremation, Miller says, is just another hurdle. “To date, we have only found one crematorium in the entire state of Texas that is willing to work with the abortion care providers, and that is not a path to compliance,” she said. “That’s a very obvious bottleneck that’s going to put services at risk throughout the state for the women who need us.”Texas responded to a lot of comments – mostly concerns – about this rule. Among the responses, the state says that these new rules quote “do not unduly burden individuals seeking abortions.” But Miller’s lawyer, David Brown with the Center for Reproductive Rights, disagrees with that.“What an undue burden means, in the words of the Supreme Court, is a law that imposes pointless burden without a benefit at all,” he said.The Texas Department of State Health Services also says it estimates the costs for health care facilities will be low enough to be covered by their operating costs.Some providers are saying that’s just not true either.Thompson says he likely won’t bear the brunt of this rule like health care facilities will, but even he thinks no one really knows what this will cost everyone – including him.“Hopefully, it will not impact families financially,” he said. “And I can perhaps see how that could happen, and I guess, as the adage goes, we will see.”Plaintiffs suing the state are hoping to get a federal court here in Texas to stop the law from going into effect on Dec 19. Indiana had a similar measure in place, but it was struck down by a federal court this past summer.Copyright 2016 KUT-FM. To see more, visit KUT-FM.
