We first heard of Alauda’s plans for a flying electric racing vehicle series in late 2017, when the Australian startup’s Matt Pearson launched a Kickstarter to gauge interest and raise funds. The team announced its international public debut in mid-2019, and has now unveiled a full-sized, fully functioning electric flying racing car – the Airspeeder Mk3.

WND Exclusive – WHO changed virus test parameter the day Biden took office

from Brent Smith at World Net Daily:

On Jan. 20, 2021, the WHO (World Health Organization) posted an important bulletin regarding polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19. What else happened on 20 January that was important? That’s right. It was the very same day Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. But I’m sure the WHO release was purely coincidental.

LifeSite News claims that the notice was released one hour after Biden took office. Although I can’t confirm that exact time, the WHO guidance bulletin is dated Jan. 20, 2021. read more

Shelby Supercars has cemented its claim that the SSC Tuatara is the world’s fastest car – but in a weirdly underwhelming fashion. Its new record of 282.9 mph (455.3 km/h) is nowhere near the previous claim, which was sensationally debunked last year in a storm of internet controversy.

Five years ago, we heard how a team at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) had used ultrasound to seemingly “jump start” a patient out of a coma. At the time, the scientists wondered if such results could be repeated, or if their success was just a one-off. They have now done it two more times.

Triggo

It looks a bit like it’s a Twizy family member, but Poland’s Triggo EV has a few neat tricks that Renault’s city roller doesn’t. It leans into the corners, at higher speeds its front wheels are spread out for stability, but slow down and they can be pulled in for easier parking, and the batteries can be removed and exchanged for fresh ones. read more
