Bike Shops Are Open in Colorado Despite COVID-19

Colorado has not shut down bike shops over COVID-19.

Listed as a critical business in Colorado, they’re still open for repairs and shopping, which is good news for any cyclists trying to get around town for the essentials: jobs, groceries, hospital visits…and fresh air.

But even though they haven’t been required to close, most of the shops are cutting back hours, limiting the number of customers inside to enforce social-distancing protocols, or offering curbside services only.

If you want to browse for a new bike or gab with the bike mechanic about your fixed-gear collection, wait till the shutdown is over. In the meantime, if you need parts or an urgent repair, the shops are ready to help. But no matter what shop you go to, call ahead. Things are changing quickly.

VW Transporter Turns 70 As The Longest-Surviving Commercial Vehicle

When you think about vehicles that have stood out the test of time, the first on your list would probably the Chevrolet Suburban, which entered production in 1935 and currently the longest-surviving vehicle nameplate in the world. The Ford F-Series trucks will also be a likely candidate, dating back to 1948 when the first of the F-Series pickup family first appeared.

The VW Beetle could have been also part of the list, dating back to 1949 – if only the German marque didn’t decide to ax the name recently. However, there’s another VW that have stood the test of time, and it’s the Transporter.

With 13 million units sold worldwide, the VW Transporter is officially celebrating its 70th birthday and currently stands as the longest-running commercial vehicle nameplate. Now on its sixth generation, the very first Transporter rolled off the Wolfsburg production line on March 8, 1950. It

Automation in the automotive industry



Challenges in the Automotive Industry


The automotive industry is very dynamic and requires extreme flexibility from automotive manufacturers. The growing global competition demands smart production systems, combined with flexible logistics systems. They can be adapted quickly and thus also serve the ever-increasing demand for model diversity. In addition to the installation, a simple operation of the system plays an important role.

Automotive manufacturers increasingly find that they have to expand their core competencies in areas ranging from automotive industry to mobility or even to re-define those areas. They are only able to stand in the competition if they could cope with developments around Industrie 4.0, demographic change and data-driven production.

    Vehicle Borne IEDs (VBIEDs)



    Vehicle borne IEDs (VBIEDs) are devices that use a vehicle as the package or container of the device.
    These IEDs come in all shapes, colors, and sizes which vary by the type of vehicles available – small sedans to large cargo trucks. There have even been instances of what appeared to be generators, donkey drawn carts, and ambulances used to attempt attacks on Coalition Forces and the New Iraqi Government.

    Larger vehicles enable larger amounts of explosive that can be used, resulting in a greater effect. Functioning of devices can vary within the same methods as the package types and can have the same common characteristics or indicators as other IEDs.

    VBIEDs have increasingly used larger amounts of explosives, and the explosive charge has ranged anywhere from 100lbs to well over 1000 pounds. The explosive charge has included items such as mortar rounds, rocket motors, rocket warheads, PE4 explosives,

    Transportation Security Overview | Homeland Security

    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created in the wake of 9/11 to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems while ensuring the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Within a year, TSA assumed responsibility for security at the nation’s airports and deployed a federal workforce to screen all commercial airline passengers and baggage.

    TSA now vets 100 percent of all passengers into, out of, and within the United States through TSA’s Secure Flight program. We use the latest technology to stay ahead of evolving threats, and continuing our efforts to screen 100 percent of cargo, regardless of where or how it is moving.

    Improving Security Through Layered, Risk Based Approach

    TSA employs a layered, risk-based approach to secure U.S. transportation systems, working closely with stakeholders in aviation, rail, transit, highway, and pipeline sectors, as well as the partners in the law enforcement and intelligence community. The agency
