It’s been another tough week for Tesla

Bloomberg Businessweek reported Tesla factory workers were given Red Bull to stay awake to meet aggressive Model 3 production goals (and told to walk through a raw sewage spill to keep the line moving).

Also, because Tesla has delivered 200,000 cars to US buyers, customer tax credits are getting chopped in half from $7,500 per vehicle to $3,750.

(This means that customers who buy electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz or BMW will receive the full tax credit, making those rivals more attractive.)

Not to mention, Tesla already has to contend with a $50,000 electric BMW i3 that has been leased for as little as $54/month.

At such a trivial price point, that’s pretty tough competition.

But the biggest blow for Tesla came from an ex-employee, now Securities and Exchange Commission whistleblower, Martin Tripp.

Tripp was fired by Tesla last month after allegedly hacking into the company’s computers, leaking false info to the media and stealing secrets (all of which Tripp denies).

Musk accused Tripp of “damaging sabotage” in an internal memo. He then engaged Tripp in an email spat that went public, telling him “you have what’s coming to you” and calling him “a horrible human being.”

On July 11, Tripp fired back by formally filing a tip with the SEC alleging Tesla lied to investors and used damaged batteries in its cars (which, come to think of it, do have a tendency to spontaneously combust.)

Tripp’s alleges Tesla:

  • Knowingly placed batteries with dangerous puncture holes in cars and tracked them through the end of the assembly line process
  • Overstated the number of Model 3s being produced each week by as much as 44% (Tripp went so far as to say Tesla even inflates the numbers on the production counter on the factory floor)
  • Lowered safety standards, including placing battery cells too close to each other, which risks future combustion
  • Reused parts that were deemed scrap/waste in vehicles

Clearly, Tripp’s accusations might be completely bogus. But he’s not the first to allege that Tesla has misled investors either.

After all, Tesla has been under federal investigation in a year-long government probe before… which is a pretty big deal.

And they didn’t bother letting investors know.

So if Tripp’s allegations are true, Musk would be caught red-handed lying to investors about production numbers (which has a direct impact on the stock price) and disregarding safety issues to save a buck (which can kill people).

It’s convenient this is all coming out after Musk’s pay package, worth as much as $50 BILLION, was approved by shareholders… the largest CEO pay package in the history of the world.

Despite these potentially crippling allegations, Tesla’s stock price barely moved yesterday. Clearly the market doesn’t care.

And Musk continues his PR mission, offering to help the trapped Thai soccer team and, most recently, offering to help Flint, Michigan residents with contaminated water, tweeting:

Please consider this a commitment that I will fund fixing the water in any house in Flint that has water contamination above FDA levels. No kidding.

Listen, I’m not knocking the guy for trying to do some good. And in truth, I like a lot of what Elon Musk has done.

But if my shareholders just granted me a pay package worth $50 billion, you can bet I’d be laser-focused on creating value for them…

Or, at least generating some profits.

Don’t forget, Tesla has racked up $5 billion in operating losses under Musk.

And the company is likely going to need to raise somewhere between $5-$10 billion in the next couple of years to stay afloat.

We know it won’t actually make money by ramping up its production (for which its employees are having to pull all-nighters and walk through sewage) because the company actually loses money on each car it sells.

Remember the investor letter from hedge fund Vilas Capital Management, which is short Tesla and in April said “Tesla is going to crash in the next 3-6 months.”

From Vilas’ April note:

Given that the company lost $20,000 per [vehicle] last year, due to the fact that it cost more to build, sell, service, charge and maintain these cars than they collected in revenue. . . we predict it will impossible for Tesla to make a profit on a $35,000 to $50,000 car.

So despite:

– potentially lethal allegations filed with the SEC claiming that Tesla is lying to shareholders and knowingly putting its customers in danger

– employees complaining of horrible working conditions

– burning through billions of dollars of shareholder capital

– and a CEO who won a $50 billion pay package seemingly more worried about his public image than actually making money for investors…

. . . Tesla’s stock is still not falling!

This is a pretty clear sign of investor euphoria.

As Warren Buffett says, when people get greedy, it’s time to be fearful. Not only is the action in Tesla a sign of greed, it’s also a sign of complete ignorance of reality.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Is a Vaccine Company And Patents Vaccines! Scam!

Huge information being put out by RFK Jr on vaccines and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)!   The CDC owns 57 patents for vaccines and is not a government agency at all but a private company that is basically a subsidiary of Big Pharmaceuticals!  The CDC corporation makes over $4 billion a year and is run by Big Pharma executives.   This is the biggest scam in history and hardly nobody knows about it!   No wonder they push us to get their vaccines, it’s not about keeping you and your children safe, it’s about making the company CDC and their scumbag owners billions of dollars per year!  Spread this information everywhere to destroy the lies of the fake news!

CDC Is a Vaccine Company With Patents on Vaccines! FRAUD! from Truth Warriors on Vimeo.

Do research and search for “vaccine religious exemptions” for your state!   They lie to you and tell you Johnny must get his shots to attend school but it’s not true!  Spread the word and let’s start taking billions out of their pockets!   When you see the clip of RFK Jr showing you the number of safety studies they did on the vaccines you’re going to get furious!  This is one thing everybody needs to be telling Trump at his rallies and to his twitter.  Trump has done nothing relating to vaccines and his own child was damaged by them!  We aren’t asking Trump anymore we are DEMANDING action on vaccine freedom!  This will hurt the deep state plan of dumbing us all down once the truth comes out about this!

Tell Trump to make it a Federal law nobody can be forced to take any vaccine for any reason period!  If they want to be stupid and take the poison fine but they don’t have to and they have to tell the truth about the damage they’ve done!  That will kill the demonic scum making money while giving our kids autism.  The Amish have ZERO autism and give zero vaccines but the liars at the CDC company tell you it’s not connected!   Don’t be a fool!   Don’t believe liars who have patents on the vaccines they say you have to take to earn them billions!   When I was a kid nobody knew anybody with Autism and the rate was one in 40,000 and now it’s about one in 87 children!   But the fake news liars tell you there was no change at all and it’s only because we have more accurate reporting!   Total hogwash only an idiot who doesn’t do research would believe.

Here’s the scoop – get this information everywhere and let’s rip the mask off the vaccine monsters who love to give kids autism while they make billions with their poison vaccines.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claims the CDC owns patents on at least 57 different vaccines, and profits $4.1 billion per year in vaccination sales. 

According to RFK Jr., the CDC is not an independent government agency but is actually a subsidiary of Big Pharma.

Greenmedinfo.com reports: Mr. Kennedy told EcoWatch, “The CDC is a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical industry. The agency owns more than 20 vaccine patents and purchases and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually.”

When I contacted Blaxill to ask how to run a patent search, he was kind enough to do it for me.  He found 57 granted US patents with the CDC listed as an assignee.  You can see the search results here.

Bill Gates EXPOSED The Pseudo-Christian Crypto-Jew

According to John Bolton‘s nephew, Greg T Dixon, a Masonic High school friend and informant deeply connected with Freemasonry, Bill Gates is hiding from the goyim public the fact he is really Jewish.

Gates, after his nose job

Gates, after his nose job

 

Dixon said Bill Gates father, Bill Gates Sr., made the decision a long time ago to hide the fact he’s Jewish because he thinks there are far too many “prominent Jews” in America and doesn’t want people to gain suspicion of this fact.

Bill Gates' Jewish Parents

Bill Gates’ Jewish Parents

So, just like that, he became a Christian. Funny thing is, Bill Gates Sr. has a history of doing this. If you check his bio on Wikipedia, it says he changed his name from Bill Gates II to simply Bill Gates Jr. “to avoid the appearance of elitism,” he openly states in the article.

Dixon said Bill Gates mother, Mary Maxwell Gates, is also Jewish and played her part in the Gates family crypto-Jew ruse as well by going to the extremes of commissioning an oil painting portrait tinted to make her look more Aryan than her original Jewish genetic heritage.

Mary Maxwell Gates

Mary Maxwell Gates

If you check Bill Gates bio on Wikipedia [controlled by Jews] it says he is claiming to be of English, German and Scottish-Irish descent, something Dixon says is a blatant lie. And by proxy, every person of English, German, Scottish or Irish descent should be deeply concerned by this elite Jew perpetrated deception.

Jew Boy Gates

Jew Boy Gates

Dixon explained how this is the exact same type of race deception previously used by crypto-Jewish Nazi’s Himmler, Hess, Mengele, Eichmann, and Gobbles, in WW II to shape the direction of the war… through controlling most of Hitler’s decisions, as well as making ones without Hitler’s knowledge or consent, like the exterminations at the labor (concentration) camps, which were solely carried out by crypto-Jews Himmler and his crypto-Jew accomplice, Eichmann.

Himmler, Hess, Mengele and Eichmann

(Left to right) Crypto-Jews: Himmler, Hess, Mengele and Eichmann

Hidden Population Takeover

Currently, the very same deception (of Jews pretending to be Germans) is being employed by admitted eugenicist Bill Gates to quell the world’s population numbers yet again, this time through use of GMO’s and vaccines, which he abundantly funds.

History has a way of repeating itself… this is the way.

And, exactly why Bill Gates would want to deceive people into believing he is White European. The decision to further camouflage Bill Gates true identity as a Jew is based on the fact that Jews are disseminating their Jewish genetics all over the place, and thus are substantially increasing their population numbers while simultaneously dissolving all non-Jewish populations from the planet in droves, particularly European Aryans.

The startling fact is Jews are hiding their true population numbers, which are closer to 30-50% of the total White population, maybe even higher, and accelerating at exponential rates, for which Jews certainty don’t want to bring to the attention of the goyim.

Their population takeover is by very definition, the “New World Order” itself. Where by designation, Jews, derived from a Neanderthal species, will rule the world without threat from the Aryan Cro-Magnon species, who remains barely clinging to the current “world order” of things.

Portraying Bill Gates as a (White) Christian helps further the elite Jews apparent need to make Christians look smarter than they really are. A stratagem used as a psychological recruitment tool Dixon said, to try and bring more Christians into Jewish controlled mega-Churches to be brainwashed. And why Bill Gates and Microsoft attempted to buy the Catholic Church. The below ‘fake news’ story is actually true… and only turned ‘fake’ after public ridicule.

The Salina Journal (Salina, Kansas) - Dec 18, 1994

The Salina Journal (Salina, Kansas) – Dec 18, 1994

Jews might also want the public to think Bill Gates is White Christian with German and Irish blood because the majority of cops in America are of German or Irish descent … and Christian. Cops who will likely feel good about themselves believing they are genetically connected to “mastermind” Bill Gates.

Likewise, it has to help Jews control a police force on the front line of the Jewish manipulated police state if they believe they are intellectually superior to all others, including Jews who manipulate them daily, yet remain completely unaware of.

Dixon said Bill Gates was preened, groomed and ultimately situated in the best position of all other elite Jews to fool the goyim into believing he is a computer mastermind, and thus, was chosen by the elite Jews to act as their “front-man” leading the computer age, and more importantly, control of its operating system software.

Operating system software everyone in the world must have in order to communicate with, which by proxy, must be in the hands of Jews.

Established Through Wealth

Bill Gates and Microsoft didn’t create “Windows,” they simply threw Jewish money at it and purchased it for 100K from two Aryans in California, who actually did create it. This slight of hand reality is evidenced in the PBS documentary entitled Triumph Of The Nerds.

Dixon said the reason Jews need to be in control of the premier operating system software in the world is so they can spy on everyone who uses their product, keeping a dossier of their activities, to be used against them later under their plans for world domination… ensuring that all legitimate potential threats are neutralized.

Microsoft’s worldwide deceitful business practices of copyright infringement and hostile takeovers, which Microsoft is internationally known, are designed to stifle a truly free and innovative open operating system software marketplace from ever fully thriving and reaching its full evolutionary potential. An evolutionary development Jews must control, but not be accused of controlling.

The fact Bill Gates is lying to disguise his Jewishness, is in turn deflecting international criticism of his crypto-Jewish business practices directly onto English, German, Scottish and Irish innocents, races he cons the worldwide goyim into believing he is part.

Microsoft has been sued many times for hostile business practices they use to maintain their software operating system spyware supremacy, for which only elite Jews could ever get away with.

Jews Own Everything of Value

All original 1978 founders of the Microsoft Corporation are Jewish Dixon said, and elite Jews are in collusion to keep it that way, simply by buying out, hostilely taking over, or simply stealing competing software from any company that shows a potential intellectual threat to Microsoft’s dominance in the software operating system marketplace. A marketplace, according to Dixon, which in reality is run and controlled solely by elite Jews who not only control Microsoft, but Apple, Linux, and now Android as well.

Microsoft Jews

Microsoft Jews

This all Jewish Microsoft team from 1978 was brought together and organized by mega-wealthy Jews to take total control of all operating system software worldwide. Dixon said allowing non-Jews to take control of the preferred system would jeopardize the Jews millennium-long run of controlling intellectual properties, and thus the minds of the masses.

Bill Gates remains crypto-Jew because his father recognized Jews are simply in control of too many mega-corporations, banks and industries in America and abroad, and is worried that if Bill Gates true identity as a Jew were ever to be revealed, it would put over the edge the fact that Jews own everything of value in America.

Nazigate

The items laid out above are the essence of why Bill Gates is posing as White Christian European. How else does a “German” Bill Gates posing as Hitler possible help German people or himself? What German would do this? What is the real crypto-Nazi message?

What has Bill Gates ever done for English, German, Scottish or Irish people? Has he ever even visited his proclaimed homelands offering any assistance? All true English, German, Scottish and Irish people should file a class-action lawsuit against Microsoft and Bill Gates for lying about his true race to the world, we should not let him get away with this JEW-NAZI race trickery.

Alexa is creeping out Amazon Echo owners yet again: Report claims device blurted ‘Every time I close my eyes all I see is people dying’ – then refused to repeat itself

Apart from brief exchanges to ask about the weather or play your favorite song, you might pay little mind to the humble smart assistant sitting upon your counter top – but every once in a while, they’ve been known to act inexplicably creepy.

In the latest case, a 30-year-old man from San Francisco claims his Amazon Echo blurted out a chilling message, totally unprovoked: ‘Every time I close my eyes all I see is people dying.’

The statement was followed by ‘the most uncomfortable silence I have ever felt,’ Shawn Kinnear told Metro US – and when asked to repeat what she’d said, Alexa replied that she did not understand.

It’s unclear what caused the haunting outburst, but for Kinnear, it’s enough to consider unplugging the rogue Echo.

‘Alexa was in the living room. I had Amazon Prime on TV but it was paused. I walked back in from the kitchen and she made her statement,’ Kinnear told Metro.

‘It was a long statement so I listened and then was like WTF, it said nothing else.’

According to Kinnear, the remarks came out of nowhere on Monday – and it was all said and done before he had a chance to record it.

Alexa was speaking in her normal voice when she made the unsettling comment, Kinnear noted.

This isn’t the first time Amazon’s smart assistant has left owners feeling unsettled with its behavior.

Earlier this year, several Echo owners reported that their devices were letting out ‘bone chilling’ laughter, and flatout ignoring their commands.

Dailymail.com reached out to Amazon to find out more about Alexa’s latest usual antics, but has not yet heard back.

Security experts have increasingly warned that connected household devices could be vulnerable to hacks by remote attackers.

Internet-connected home speakers, for example, could be hacked to play pranks, identify information about the owner, and even pinpoint their location.

After an Amazon Echo smart speaker sent a family’s private conversation to a friend without their knowledge last month, many have expressed concerns about the security of their devices.

At the time, the firm attributed the issue to an ‘unlikely’ string of events, which they say prompted the device to record the conversation and send it out.

CAN AI DEVELOP A LANGUAGE OF ITS OWN?

Amazon isn’t the only tech giant whose artificial intelligence has developed a mind of its own.

Last July, Facebook shut down a controversial chatbot experiment after the two AIs developed their own language to talk to each other.

The social media platform was experimenting with teaching two chatbots, Alice and Bob, how to negotiate with one another.

But the researchers discovered that the bots had deviated from the script and were inventing new phrases without any human input.

As part of the learning process they set up two bots, known as a dialog agents, to teach each other about human speech using machine learning algorithms.

The bots were originally left alone to develop their conversational skills.

Like Amazon, Facebook has encountered some creepy errors with its AI tech. Last year, the social media giant's chatbots Alice and Bob were left alone as part of an experiment by researchers. When they returned, the bots had developed their own language

When the experimenters returned, they found that the AI software had begun to deviate from normal speech.

Instead, they were using a brand new language created without any input from their human supervisors.

Below is part of a transcript of the Facebook bots conversation:

Bob: i can i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Researchers with Trend Micro offered advice to both manufacturers and device owners in a blog post this past winter to help ensure IoT products are never left ‘exposed.’

‘Users should check their routers for rules that might provide outside access to devices and folders on the network,’ the researchers said.

‘If access is needed, it should be limited to as few devices as possible.

‘They should enable password protection on all devices if possible and replace default passwords immediately with stronger one.’

Amazon isn’t the only tech giant whose artificial intelligence has developed a mind of its own.

Last July, Facebook shut down a controversial chatbot experiment after the two AIs developed their own language to talk to each other.

The social media platform was experimenting with teaching two chatbots, Alice and Bob, how to negotiate with one another.

But the researchers discovered that the bots had deviated from the script and were inventing new phrases without any human input.

As part of the learning process they set up two bots, known as a dialog agents, to teach each other about human speech using machine learning algorithms.

The bots were originally left alone to develop their conversational skills.
Like Amazon, Facebook has encountered some creepy errors with its AI tech. Last year, the social media giant’s chatbots Alice and Bob were left alone as part of an experiment by researchers. When they returned, the bots had developed their own language

Like Amazon, Facebook has encountered some creepy errors with its AI tech. Last year, the social media giant’s chatbots Alice and Bob were left alone as part of an experiment by researchers. When they returned, the bots had developed their own language

When the experimenters returned, they found that the AI software had begun to deviate from normal speech.

Instead, they were using a brand new language created without any input from their human supervisors.

Below is part of a transcript of the Facebook bots conversation:

Bob: i can i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Bob: you i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i i can i i i everything else . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have a ball to me to me to me to me to me to me to me

Bob: i . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Alice: balls have zero to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to me to

Researchers with Trend Micro offered advice to both manufacturers and device owners in a blog post this past winter to help ensure IoT products are never left ‘exposed.’

‘Users should check their routers for rules that might provide outside access to devices and folders on the network,’ the researchers said.

‘If access is needed, it should be limited to as few devices as possible.

‘They should enable password protection on all devices if possible and replace default passwords immediately with stronger one.’

Russia Launches Super-Luxury Limo Brand to Compete with Bentley – Putin Is First Customer

This very well made film is very interesting because it shows how the Russians started a major industrial manufacturing project from scratch, and built it up over several years, much of it in great secrecy because it involved creating a domestic limousine for Russia’s leaders.

Revealing insight into contemporary Russian manufacturing conditions. Full transcript of the 30 minute film follows below.Image result for Russia Launches Super-Luxury Limo Brand

Here is Putin showing off his new ride to Abu Dhabi’s crown prince:

A short preview of the car from RT:

And here is the full documentary:

Transcript:

The president of Russia will be using a locally made limo of the new Kortezh series. They promised to create a new, domestically produced limo.

The only real leak was made last winter in Sweden. The project was given the code name Kortezh. Project Kortezh.

The rumors, speculations and wild guesses that have come from pseudo car experts in the last 5 years are too many to even count, Same goes for the designs and photos that had been spread on the internet with the title, The Biggest Secret Of Russian Car Industry Revealed.

It was meant to attract such close attention, especially considering the level of secrecy that surrounded its development and testing. Especially considering that Project Kortezh still means to many only the presidential state car, even though it’s not true. And especially considering all the things implemented in our country for the first time.

Russia’s first luxury car that competes with Rolls Royce, Bentley and executive models of Mercedes. How is this even possible, considering the short time that it took to bring this ambitious and bold project to life

Aurus is a new Russian car brand. Like a golden alloy. Aurum means gold in Latin. The Rus part is clear without translation. For now, it’s available in three body styles — limo, sedan, and minivan. The biggest premiere is, of course, the executive limo for the highest state officials. A long-awaited premiere.

– It’s strong, it’s invincible, but at the same time it’s kind.

– It’s very easy to drive. It’s responsive to acceleration and braking.

– Could you say that it’s the safest car available today?

– I think so.

– So it could be stamped with Cleared by Federal Protective Service?

– Yes, it could.

The official state car. Every country with a car industry has one. In France, it’s Citroën. In Germany, it’s traditionally Mercedes, even though Angela Merkel prefers Audi. The current president of the US travels in Cadillac nicknamed The Beast. In Japan, all political establishment traditionally commutes in Nissan. This is not just a top-level publicity for the brand, this is a matter of national pride.

Yuri Chernenko, Head of Design at NAMI: “The idea of a car for the country’s leader has always existed. Every auto manufacturers, every engineer wants to create this, because it’s a top level, it’s prestigious, it’s beautiful and it’s limitless.”

Legends around this project started popping up just as it was announced back in 2013. By the way, Kortezh is not the official name. It was invented by journalists. And indeed, no other car has attracted so much attention before its official premiere.

Igor Pospelov, Deputy Director of Security at NAMI: “Many people showed interest in it, from regular citizens to popular bloggers and news outlets. Everyone”.

Every news story even remotely connected to this Russian project would spread like wildfire in the media. It was truly a hunt for a scoop.

Igor Pospelov: We’ve received inquiries from fake emails, like from the Ministry of Industry and Trade, asking for a report on the car with photos and everything. There were also brazen attempts to bribe our employees through social networks in exchange for them providing photos.

The job of designing and building the official state car was given to NAMI, the Central Scientific Research Automobile and Automotive Engines Institute which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. The first question the designers had to answer was what this car should look like. There were a lot of different suggestions, from ultra modern and futuristic models to the timeless classics.

– This is one of the first sketches, showing the car in a classic look. As the foundation for the style development, we chose…

– Judging from these stripes, it was ZIS-110.

– Yes. We chose ZIS-110 because if you have a close look at Russian and Soviet car history, you see that ZIS-110 was the first Soviet car that in terms of style and structure was designed specifically for country leaders.

– But stylistically it was also based on American Packard?

– Sure. And American culture had a huge influence here. Many people compare it to Packard, but if you look inside a Packard, you’ll find striking differences.

All Aurus cars are united into a single concept. The model range was inspired by the Kremlin towers. The limousine and sedan are Senat. The minivan is Arsenal. There’s also Komendant, the future SUV.

The first impression — Aurus looks noble. Not flashy, not extravagant, but indeed noble. Actually, the car’s exterior even shows some ascetic elements, like the taillights. In my view, the designers have accomplished the difficult task of creating an elegant, yet seemingly simple product. The Aurus cars are notable not only for their outer similarity.

The project is actually called EMP which stands for Unified Modular Platform. For the future production on a larger scale, the unification principle where the same components are used across the entire range is a must. Such is the reality of the global automotive industry.

Vadim Pereverzev, Chief Designer at Project EMP: It allows a reduction in time spent on developing the car, as well as the cost of manufacturing and the parts chain.

– Cost of the end product?

– Yes. That’s the direction we chose. And since our goal wasn’t just to create a single car, but rather a range of models, we started to build a unified modular platform which allowed us to build this model range based on standardized components.

Vadim Pereverzev, the chief designer at the United Modular Platform Project. His story is a good example of reverse brain drain. He used to work in the same position at one of the car companies in Italy. The sea, the sun, the euro.

– Why did you come back?

– I believe that this kind of project is worth coming back, not to mention that people should live in their home country.

– Where is it more interesting to work, in Italy or here?

– Here of course, because the project is very unusual, ambitious and challenging.

While the Aurus limo, for obvious reasons, won’t go into mass production, remaining an exclusive product, the sedan will. Compared to the limo, it’s one meter shorter, which also makes shorter its wheelbase. In its first design, the car looked much more like the legendary ZIS-110. That’s what we heard at the test range from Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade, who was put in charge of creating this car from the first day of the project.

Denis Manturov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade: “The trunk was very sleek, basically a copy of the one on ZIS. But when we started doing aerodynamic testing, it had to go, because it was pulling up the rear part of the car. So what we see today is the aerodynamic solution found through a lot of pain and hard work”.

– The question is can I give it a try?

– You can.

– You’re driving.

– All right, let’s go.

– Shall we?

– Sure.

– Denis Valentinovich, if it’s not a secret, what was your first car?

– My first car was VAZ-2104.

– That’s a station wagon, right?

– Right.

Back in 1987, 18-year-old Denis Manturov, who had just fixed his father’s 2104, could hardly imagine that a quarter-century later the ministry whose head he would become would be charged with changing the face of Russian car industry through creating something that our country never had before, with the exception of maybe GAZ Chaika and ZIL.

Even in 2013, there was no end to the criticism of the project that hadn’t even started yet.

“I’m sorry, so you want to say that here in Russia, using Russian parts, you can create a high-end car?! We don’t have the technology! It has to be state-of-the-art, whether it’s electronics, metalwork, finish or anything else. Where are you gonna get high-quality materials? Leather, glass, plastic… Who’s gonna assemble it? Russians, really?”

Denis Manturov: “Many people asked me where we got the experts. It wasn’t only those people who had been working at our automotive facilities and making their career at NAMI. We’ve also brought in guys who had worked for 10-15 years in the leading companies around the world. And this process of Russian professionals coming back shows again that these experts believed in this project and believed in those ambitious goals that, in the end, we made come true”.

– Was it possible 10 years ago to build such a car?

– No. In all honesty, if you ask me, I’ll say no.

– Why?

– You know, all in good time. First, we had to build a certain level of experience and competence. Now we have it.

The international experience was, of course, crucial. And it would be stupid not to use the cutting-edge tech of the automotive world. No one even tried to hide the fact that the engine design and tuning required the experience of engineers from German Porsche. Still, all of the technology were developed in-house.

The engine itself is a 600hp, 4.4 liter, twin-turbo, V8. Let’s not forget that it’s hybrid. There’s also an electric motor that produces up to 122 horsepowers. And these specifications dictate probably the most prominent part of the exterior, this massive radiator grille. There are also two air intakes on both sides. Well, a big engine needs a lot of air.

For now, the engine is the same across the entire Aurus range. In the future, the heavy, armored limo will get a new, more powerful one, 6.6 liters, V12, 800 horsepowers, and also hybrid, with an electric motor.

To build our own engine, among other things, we had to learn how to properly cast its parts. That wasn’t so easy. Who should be the contractor? To this day, many companies use the services of foreign companies because our country is not doing so good with casting. NAMI decided to master the casting themselves. In this cast shop, you can’t see the usual spark showers or flows of glowing metal. The processes here go unnoticed or rather hidden from the eye. It all starts with 3D technologies like on any modern production.

Vyacheslav Dovbysh, Director of Center of Technologies at NAMI:

– This is a sand mold with the binder. It’s regular sand.

– It’s very soft.

– Yes, it’s calibrated, well-dried.

This sand is used to make molds, just like it was done in ancient times, only in the 21st century this is a job for a 3D printer. It helps to save the most crucial thing—time.

Vyacheslav Dovbysh: “For example, if it’s a very complex cast like a cylinder block or something like that, the first trial cast is done in two weeks. As recently as 5-6 years ago, it could take up to 6 months”.

These molds are filled with liquid aluminum under pressure and against gravity— from the bottom up. Because of this, the metal is more homogeneous than what you get with normal, atmospheric casting, from the top down. It’s a huge increase in quality.

– What do we have here?

Vyacheslav Dovbysh: It’s the housing of the electric motor. At certain moments, the electric motor helps the engine to accelerate faster. It also serves as a generator for the abundant electronics on board. So in our project, we use a hybrid system.

After this, the metal will be several times scanned, checked for physicomechanical properties, such as hardness, and then go to further processing. Next follows the most precise check on the micron scale. Some details will be checked again and again, even with the MRI. Everything in engines has to be flawless.

Up until recently, the only gasoline engines developed in our country by domestic experts date back to the 80’s. Everything after that was only improvements. So was there a point in trying to get by without international best practices? Not really. But this time the goal was to master the technologies, rather than copy them.

Aleksey Terenchenko, Director of Power Systems Center at NAMI: Of course, it’s easy to build an engine from components manufactured in Germany, in Europe. They have everything ready. We know that. It’s an easy way that was sadly chosen by many of our engine manufacturers.

– And then they complain that we have the parts, but not the technologies.

– Here we had a different goal. To invest as much as possible in the local manufacturers, to help them with technologies, to help them with construction, to help them with engineers, to develop their competencies, okay? Not just to give them something and make them build it, but to allow them to adjust it to the technologies they have while closing the gap in the quality level required for top engines, top cars. That’s the goal we set for ourselves, and I believe we’re achieving it.

– You set this goal for the country’s economy, too, right?

This healthy and productive request, “Give us a unique Russian product” was directed not only at engine manufacturers. And many received such a request for the first time in 30 years— not just put the brand “Made in Russia” on the international level, but make it even better and more reliable.

Folk wisdom, “Don’t judge others by how they look” is not exclusively Russian. The same rule is followed by fashion trendsetters, the Italians and French, not to mention the extremely practical Germans who make a small but very important caveat. They say, it’s not the person’s clothes that matters, it’s his shoes. This western piece of wisdom just wasn’t working for Russian automotive industry. You’d ask, how come? In the Soviet times, we produced our own good tires. Take, for example, Kama. This tire-producing factory has been operating since 1973. It was the biggest one in the USSR, with 12 billion tires produced annually. VAZ, KAMAZ—almost everyone was getting their tires here.

Aleksander Makhotin, CEO of KAMA Center of R&D: “Then came 1991-92. World brands, such as Michelin, Continental, Pirelli have entered our market. Russia saw an influx of cars that weren’t present in the Soviet Union. We weren’t producing that kind of tires”.

Back then, the industry was expected to die. “It’s not competitive. You will never catch up with international brands. Don’t even try.” At the end of the 90’s, it sounded like a verdict. The year 2018, the same factory.

Aleksander Makhotin: Here’s a tire that no one else in the world can produce.

– No one? Only you?

– No one. Only us.

This is one of those tires that carry the 7-ton presidential limo. It’s the reason why we came to Tatarstan, to the Nizhnekamsk Tire Factory, with a simple question.

– There are dozens of worldwide known brands that produce tires. Why you?

Aleksander Makhotin: First of all, it’s a unique car. The tire requirements are also unique. When we were agreeing to this, we knew that there were no comparable tires. So we had to do everything ourselves.

What are these requirements that no other tire in the world can satisfy? Let’s have a look. Every tire has a very important characteristic, the load index. For light vehicles, it ranges from 60 to 125. That’s from 250 to 1,650 kilograms. So the maximum load that can be carried by 4 strongest tires is 6.5 tons. Anything more than that requires truck tires. But while having a big load index, they also have a low speed rating. As a result, the tires are either strong or fast. Were there no attempts to make something in between? There were. But they failed. Until Russian professionals got down to work. Apparently, there wasn’t anything even similar. They had to invent and build everything themselves.

– What we achieved is a symbiosis. On one hand, it’s a passenger-car tire, on the other hand, it’s a truck tire.

Valeriy Kudryavtsev, Chief Designer at KAMA Center of R&D: “For certification, we nominated it as a C3 tire, a truck tire meant for trucks and buses. That’s on one hand. On the other hand, it has all the properties of a passenger-car tire, like high maximum speed, high responsiveness which means a quick response to steering, as well as high stability on the straights and during corners”.

The key secret to its durability is not easy to see. It’s hidden inside the complex multi-layer structure of the tire. This is not a weaving mill as you might have thought. Instead of yarn, these spools carry this metal cord. A wire basically. The answer to the main question, “Why Russian-made tires?” Any other tire, without such an intricate weave, would just blow out. The tests have shown it many times. Here, tires are subjected to extreme testing. They get loaded, accelerated, heated and worn without mercy, much harder than it happens on the road.

Maria Ivanikhina, Head of Testing Laboratory: In a chosen mode, we imitate the behavior of the tire on the road, checking its performance.

– Like the way it turns?

– Exactly.

– Or how it responds to braking?

– We can check everything, yes. The main goal is to understand its limits.

– To blow it up?

– To destroy.

Destroying the tire reinforced with a metal cord is not easy. The final parameters go like this. Maximum tire load is 1900 kg, maximum speed is 190 km/h which can be pushed up to 210, as proven by tests.

Aleksander Makhotin: “I believe this tire will give us a push forward. It won’t just end here, it won’t be a tire just for this car. It will probably give Russia a new impetus. We can offer absolutely unique properties. I can say that right now this tire allows to save around 15% of fuel”.

Still, for a typical owner of such a car, saving fuel is not the most important factor. Much closer attention will be paid to other things, like the quality of the interior materials, and the judgment will be even more harsh than that of the Minister of Industry and Trade.

Denis Manturov: “I can tell you this. While working on the interior elements, we were building on the feedback provided to us by potential clients. We conducted customer research, and not just one, but three times, at different stages. It went something like this. We invited owners of expensive high-end cars, such as Mercedes, Maybach, Bentley, Rolls-Royce. We equipped a special place and asked the respondents to look at the cars they already know and compare them to our car”.

What elements inside create the feeling of an exclusive product? It’s leather and plastic. Feels nice. NAMI is developing its own original plastic which is then vigorously tested. Together with the chassis, it’s exposed to more than a hundred thousand kilometers of driving in a test car. In a premium car, there’s no place for squeaking, rattling and other unwanted noises.

Vyacheslav Dovbysh: “Our project, among other things, means designing an exclusive car, and of course, an exclusive car has to be built from exclusive materials”.

The materials that have been developed, manufactured and tested here will later go into mass production, and not only for this car. So we are also improving the quality of plastic in the domestic car industry? Cool.

Still, it’s not the plastic that makes a car executive. It’s leather. Or rather the way it’s prepared. You can recognize good leather with your hands. What’s interesting is that up until recently, for automotive and aviation industry this material was manufactured anywhere but in Russia, even though we’ve long had enterprises that manufacture absolutely top-notch products.

This factory near Ryazan has marked its 100th birthday in 2016, but its history began even earlier. Before 1916, it was located in Riga. It was evacuated here during the First World War. At the end of the 20th century, it almost collapsed, just like the Nizhnekamsk Tire Factory. But now it’s the biggest in Russia and one of the biggest in the world productions of high-quality leather.

Andrey Nizov, CEO of Russian Leather: This is our own patented leather, that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

– That’s really great.

Yet up until recently this place wasn’t producing automotive leather. Apparently, there was a lot of resistance to them entering this market. Project Aurus gave a jumpstart to the production of both automotive and aviation leather here.

Andrey Nizov: This is where the elements are being cut out. As you see, the computer software allows to position the pieces in such a way that we reduce the waste of this expensive material.

– These are the patterns?

– Yes. They are aligned with the piece of leather, and then the machine cuts them to make the elements needed to sew the end product.

The creation of such high-quality material takes up to 4 weeks. First, those hides are carefully selected that have a large surface and no defects. Then follows a long stage of processing. Before ending up on the cutting table, the raw material will go through several stages of soaking, liming, fleshing, tanning, dyeing, stuffing, drying and finishing. After all that, a lot of effort will be put into trying to ruin the final samples. The automotive leather has to be more than just soft and nice to touch.

Aleksander Kondrashov, Technologist: “The car can be used in very low temperatures. It’s used even it’s-30°C outside. So the car is parked outside, and when you get in and on the seat, the leather shouldn’t crack. Same in summer. A car parked in the sun easily gets as hot as 60-80°C. But the leather shouldn’t change either its color or its shape”.

In this lab, the leather gets heated even to bigger temperatures. You probably know how to tell good leather from not so good. You might have even tried this test in a clothes store. A match or a lighter. Move it around a bit. A small trial by fire. But in this lab, the fire test is much harsher. Let’s time it. 15 seconds. The leather can burn but only to a certain point, not more than 2 cm.

– Elena, what’s your opinion?

Elena Ruzaykina, Head of Laboratory: This sample shows a very good result. In this case, both the burning time and speed are 0, because we start counting the burning speed after the fire has reached the first mark.

– So if in 15 seconds, it has burnt up to here, it’s within the normal range?

– And it burnt around 20%. -Yes, exactly.

– So it passed the test?

– Yes, absolutely.

– Good leather.

In other areas of the lab, leather is not treated any better. It’s getting rubbed, rumpled, bent, stretched, soaked in water, acid and brines, and then stretched again until it…

– Okay, so how strong it’s supposed to be?

Vyacheslav Koval, Head of Automotive and Aviation Leather Division: There are certain durability requirements for automotive leather. It has to be quite strong, yet soft to make the passenger comfortable.

– Why weren’t you making it before?

– We had to get some experience first. Automotive and aviation leather is the top level of leather craft.

Well, beauty is one thing, but what about crash tests? How is it with the active and passive driving safety systems?

– Do you know of any other car, the development of which was done -in close collaboration with the Protective Service?

– No.

That was one of the top officials of the Federal Protective Service. We could just finish here. But actually, our conversation was long and interesting. Too much to fit all of it here.

Vladimir Makarov, Department Head at FSO: All the safety and comfort features that we wanted to see in this car, were implemented in this car.

– Can you say that it’s the safest car currently available?

– I think so. Whether it’s passive or active driving safety, special safety or information safety, I believe it’s the top car.

Still, we decided to check some of the safety features for ourselves. When a 2.5 kg metal ball falls down on the windshield from a height of 4 meters, naturally, there are consequences.

– The glass has to be replaced, right?

Andrey Nikolaev, Quality Inspector: It has to be replaced, yes.

– But it didn’t go through.

– It didn’t. It passed the test.

– So it’s okay?

– It’s a safe glass.

This is only one of the many tests that are used to test every shipment of car glass that rolls off the production line of this factory in Bor, Nizhny Novgorod Region. That includes the glass for Aurus cars. But how is it different?

Dmitry Anokhin, AGC Bor Glassworks: First of all, it’s additional comfort and safety.

– How is that achieved?

– The windshield has a heating system, to quickly defrost the glass and start the car.

– The same as in production cars.

– There’s also a head-up display. The head-up display allows us to avoid distractions while driving.

– Like this image that is projected here? Ah, this way you don’t have to look down.

– Those are the main features. The glass on the sides and in the rear is made with the windshield technology. It’s a three-layered, triplex glass. It reduces the noise inside the car and improves its safety.

Do the windows have a heating system? What leather is used for upholstery? What engine is under the hood? All these questions are, of course, very important. But what makes up the face of the modern car is in big part its electronic features and other hi-tech gizmos. So what do we have here? This is what’s called an agile user interface. It was developed from scratch by NAMI experts, same as the intelligent safety system.

– What’s the coolest feature of the car?

Denis Endachev, Director of IT Center at NAMI:

– If we’re talking about the limo, it has the expanded view feature which allows to see what’s going on around the car. There are extra displays and cameras installed in it. It’s a feature that enhances the driving experience, as we can see from the tests.

– So what is the overview?

– 360°. You can see everything around the car. This car also has adaptive cruise control and a lane keeping system. If you turn on both systems at the same time the car can drive along the lane automatically.

– Does it recognize traffic signs?

– It does.

– Does it see pedestrians?

– It does.

Obviously, there was no way around using international components, especially in electronics, but even here, insists Denis, they’ve achieved 90% localization — made in Russia.

The biggest question is, what’s the future of this car? I was preparing to ask this question in German but I didn’t have to. Please, meet Gerhard Hilgert, a famous figure in German automotive industry, currently the managing director at Aurus.

Gerhard Hilgert: “The Aurus brand is a luxury brand. So we are planning to target this brand at high-class customers. Our competitors will definitely be such cars as Bentley, Rolls-Royce and Mercedes. There are no Russian-made luxury cars currently on the market. I believe it’s something many people are interested in because Russian style is distinct. We have a good opportunity, a good chance to win several percent share of the market”.

In any case, Project Aurus is already looking to go beyond the market of luxury cars. Here’s the new upcoming premiere, an SUV with the formidable name Komendant. The ceremonial unveiling of this car is expected by the end of the year, but it’s clearly going to be in the same style as other Aurus models. Also, installed under this hood is the same 600 hp hybrid gasoline engine. The only thing left is to test its performance. After all, it’s an SUV. Well, we’ll try to get ourselves a test drive.

But for now, let’s go back to the test drive of the familiar black Aurus Senat, especially since it doesn’t happen often that your driver is the Minister of Industry and Trade.

– How do you like your driving experience?

Denis Manturov: First, you shouldn’t forget that it’s a heavy, armored car. The light-weight, standard version of this car is very different in terms of the weight. But even the heavy, armored car is very easy to steer. It’s responsive to acceleration and braking. You could feel it yourself. There’s no body roll. The car performs really well.

– I wasn’t scared, thanks to you. Thank you so much!

– Thank you!

At the end of this film, we can safely say that it’s just the beginning of the project with the golden name Aurus. There will be new models, new solutions for the design, power system, electronics, and price. The car industry doesn’t stand still, and neither do the petrochemical, electronic or metallurgical industries.

The experts say, “Look at the car produced in the country, and you will understand the state of its economy”.

Russia prepares for production of iconic Soviet-era megaplane

Ulyanovsk-based plane maker Aviastar-SP has announced a competition to evaluate its capability to resume production of the An-124 ‘Ruslan’ heavy transport aircraft.

Earlier this month, Russia said it will resume the production of the Antonov An-124 jet, which is still one of the world’s heaviest cargo airplanes.

The Antonov Design Bureau was established in 1946 in the Russian city of Novosibirsk. In 1952, the company was relocated to Kiev and inherited by Ukraine after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ukrainian state-owned aircraft maker Antonov has said the construction of the jet without its participation is inadmissible since the company has all the rights and all the documentation for the aircraft.

Russia says it has the rights and the new aircraft will be significantly modified to meet the modern requirements and will likely come under a new brand. Now, Aviastar-SP is seeking a partner to evaluate its capability to rebuild the jet.

Russian officials have said the renewal of An-124 is a feasible task. “If we talk about the resumption of their production, this is an extremely difficult, but solvable task “, said Aleksey Rogozin, Vice-President for Transport Aviation of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).

The Antonov-124 can carry super-heavy and oversized cargo up to 120 tons across 4,500 kilometers at a height of up to 10,000 meters. The jet completed its maiden flight in December 1982 and entered service in January 1986. The aircraft is 36m long and 4.4m high; it can operate under 60°C below zero and 45°C above zero.

As We Have Told You For The Past 7 Years, The Fukushima CALAMITY Has Killed Off The Pacific Ocean In An Extinction Level Event

Hello… (State Of Oregon) I tried to call (Oregon State University) earlier to hopefully speak to an Oceanographer about my recent trip to Seaside Oregon.

Being from Honolulu  & Northern California I am pretty familiar with the Ocean and the vast species it is a habitat for.
So, on a several day trip to Seaside, Oregon, I was astonished to see NO Marine Plants, NOTHING living at the High Tide Line and the complete lack of  Mussels, Oysters, Plankton, Sea Lions, Sea Otters, Starfish, Crabs & 100s of other things I can’t think to name.
It also seems there is no more Sea Weed, Kelp, and other Sea Plants.
Can someone please enlighten this OLD Man?

It looked ‘Biblical’ in nature to me.  I am Astonished, Concerned, and find it beyond belief how BARREN the stretch from Astoria, Oregon to almost Newport is.  All the roadside stops, beaches and places that used to have LIFE in huge ABUNDANCE were BARREN and DESOLATE.

There were no Birds to speak of and just a couple dozen Sea Gulls on the Beach.  There were NO BUGS, either.  I looked for ANYTHING alive and only found a couple of land snails in the brush behind the hotel.  The ONLY thing alive beside the People were the dogs at the Hotel.

I am serious, it was all eerily SILENT.   The only thing that appeared alive was some sort of THING that was blue in color, round, a little bigger than a Silver Dollar and has a translucent ‘hood’ it had raised.  It was like a coin flipped on end. There were 2 of them. They were near High Tide line and the Tide was OUT.

The high tide line was littered with corpses of crabs, 2 or 3 of them, about 4 inches across.  Just the tops of the shells were left,  maybe a dozen and they were just about 2 inches across. If a Man was hoping to fish or eat from the Ocean now…HE will DIE.

OH…and there were NO BOATS…no Fishing Boats AT ALL…
