In Education, Government, Legal by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: ,

On Thursday, Los Angeles radio show host Leeann Tweeden accused Senator Al Franken of kissing and groping her during a 2006 USO tour through the Middle East. It’s the same icky, infuriating story of sexual assault Americans have heard countless times over the past few weeks. But the immediate response has been overwhelmingly different. Why? Because Tweeden has a photo. And people view photographs as evidence more weighty than testimony. The image is as crude and offensive as you’d imagine: Tweeden slumped back in her chair, asleep, aboard a C-17 cargo plane that’s just left ... Read More

EPA Moves To Shield Older Semi Truck Engines In ‘Gliders’ From Emissions Rules

In Business, Education, Government, Legal, Science & Nature by National Public RadioLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

The Environmental Protection Agency wants to change how it classifies "glider vehicles" — heavy trucks that are built by pairing a new chassis with an old diesel engine and powertrain. The move would keep the EPA from imposing Clean Air Act emissions standards on the trucks. To make a glider, companies typically combine a new truck body and cab with a salvaged powertrain. The vintage of the reused engine is important: Many of them date to before 2010, when the EPA tightened emissions standards for pollutants such as nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emitted by heavy duty diesel engines. For years, usable powertrains had been salvaged from wrecked trucks to make glider vehicles that cost about 25 percent less than new ... Read More
