Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

Поздние США: дефицит и вымирающая деревня

"During his own bedside shifts at the hospital in Sioux Falls, a city of 180,000, Skow had performed dozens of similar intubations under what he had come to think of as the standard conditions of an urban trauma center. He usually had another emergency physician nearby to provide backup, plus a trauma surgeon, a cardiologist, an anesthesiologist, and a team of up to 20 residents, ER nurses, and paramedics competing for space at the patient’s bedside. But now on the screen in rural Montana, Skow counted a total of five people in the room. None were doctors. None had significant experience performing emergency intubations" --

"On the screen" - потому что сам он находится за тысячу километров и работает удаленно. У нас горнило, у нас СИСТЕМА.

MIT Technology Review -- Don’t expect electric cars and trucks to get as cheap as their gas-powered rivals anytime soon.
EVs may never reach the same sticker price so long as they rely on lithium-ion batteries, the energy storage technology that powers most of today’s consumer electronics. In fact, it’s likely to take another decade just to eliminate the difference in the lifetime costs between the vehicle categories, which factors in the higher fuel and maintenance expenses of standard cars and trucks.
