Airo - a car that will clean the air around it

dailymail.co.uk : A driverless electric car concept is capable of hoovering up pollution left by other vehicles as it drives along, leaving clean air in its wake, its designers claim. The Airo is being designed by British Heatherwick Studio for the Chinese green-vehicle firm IM Motors and could go into production as soon as 2023. It features a dining room-style space inside the cabin that can be turned into a double bed, allowing passengers to continue to slumber during a commute to work. The vehicle will run on electric power, producing no fossil fuel pollutants as it moves around the city. But the car goes further in its environmental ambition. Heatherwick confirmed it would be equipped with a state-of-the-art HEPA filtering system attached to the under-carriage that can clean up pollution particles. (continue reading)

Famel E-XF

The "Famel XF" was one of the most famous motorcycle models manufactured in Portugal. It was launched in 1975 and sold a lot until 1994, when the factory went bankrupt. It was a motorcycle associated with the rural suburban class, but over time it became a chic object, with a special charisma and a lot of nostalgia from the eighties. In Águeda, the Portuguese city that gave rise to the original version, a new company appears that relaunched the mythical bike  but with an electric motor . The design is inspired by the old gasoline-powered XF ( Zundapp engine) and promises to inspire many people who miss this object so important in Portuguese Pop culture!

"Why Germans Do It Better" alternative book cover.

You were really expecting this, weren't you? An alternative cover of this book started circulating on the internet, where someone replaces the industrial crane with an SS officer beating a victim of a Nazi concentration camp. Being such a sensitive topic for contemporary German society, the cover with this reference to dark humor has been ignored by the German press. The image is subtle and it is only after a few minutes that we notice the slight change to the original design. The joke was obvious and inevitable but here it is for future memory. The book, written by John Kampfner and published in August this year, tries to explain to us why a country devastated by war just 70 years ago, became the most important European economy, leaving the United Kingdom to look with envy at this technological, economic and cultural power. But, apparently, there are still people who remember the terror of the Nazi regime and do not want them to forget this ...

You can't delete a folder because Windows 10 is saying that it's not there?

 It happened to me and the only solution that really worked was this one   by a user named  Rayza73 . "I had this same problem using  Server 2012 Std . I tried various options of taking ownership of the parent folder because the Security properties of the folder I was trying to delete were blank, using CMD and Dir /x etc. I even tried sharing the parent folder and then using Server 2008 R2. None of them worked. When I tried Dir /x Server 2012 doesn't show the 8 character filename with the ~1. I tried typing it in myself, but that didn't work either. I then found that there was a space at the end of the folder name. I then tried all the CMD options again using a space, still no luck. Then I finally stumbled upon this solution: Open CMD and then type: rd /s "\\?\D:\bad\folder\path " example: rd /s "\\?\D:\Sharedata\folder1\folder2 " - note the space after folder2 as per the space in the folder name. Obviously D: is the drive that has the folder on it. Thi
