Ohio Removes Front License Plate Requirement, Joining 19 Other States[/url]

As of July 1, the state of Ohio no longer requires vehicles to have a license plate mounted on the front. You still have to put one on the back of the car, of course; the state has not yet descended into unlicensed anarchy. That's great news for those with vehicles that look horrible with a front plate—and those with the currently fashionable huge grilles in front. Not as good news for the cops and people who use Uber to get around.

Germany is first major economy to phase out coal and nuclear


The plan is part of Germany’s ‘energy transition’ – an effort to wean Europe’s biggest economy off planet-warming fossil fuels and generate all of the country’s considerable energy needs from renewable sources. Achieving that goal is made harder than in comparable countries such as France and Britain because of Germany’s existing commitment to also phase out nuclear power by the end of 2022.

The Uncertain Future of Ham Radio


The number of U.S. amateur licenses has held at an anemic 1 percent annual growth for the past few years, with about 7,000 new licensees added every year for a total of 755,430 in 2018. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission doesn’t track demographic data of operators, but anecdotally, white men in their 60s and 70s make up much of the population. As these baby boomers age out, the fear is that there are too few young people to sustain the hobby.

Volvo Registered A Tesla Model Y In Sweden For Reverse Engineer?


Model Y will not enter the European market before Giga Berlin is built. Therefore, Volvo imported the car from the Tesla plant in California. We strongly doubt that the Swedish automaker purchased the car so that someone would just drive it, so reverse engineering is the most likely reason. In 2018, Volvo already bought a Model 3, which at that time was not available in Europe, for this purpose.
