I have attended the opening day (April 25th) of the AutoChina 2018 auto show in Beijing. The sector is more dynamic than ever in China: set to have one of the global leadership position not only in operational but also technological ways necessary to ensure product efficiency, performance, reliability and overall appreciation within an Electric Vehicles framework that is booming.
Il 13 aprile scorso una significativa rappresentanza del Motorsport Italiano si è data appuntamento a Roma, presso il NOVOTEL EUR, per il primo incontro dell’Associazione Motorsport Italia in occasione del primo ePrix di Formula E nella capitale.
L’obiettivo dell’incontro è stato raggiunto: riscontrare interesse, argomenti e condizioni per poter sviluppare sinergie strutturate nel settore e supportarne costruttivamente la crescita organizzativa allo scopo di cogliere e generare opportunità di espansione a livello nazionale e internazionale (altro…)
During the last few months electric motorsport has made several headlines: announcements of new series (among others several, and the number keeps rising: support series to the MotoGP, GT series, Global RallyCross Challenge); technical and commercial upgrades of present ones (see Formula E); new record seeking challenges in classic racing venues (see for example the VW prototype and the Pikes Peak hillclimb).
We have come to associate electric motorsport to something innovative and futuristic; in actuality it is thanks to electric power that performance has begun to be associated with the emerging newly born field of automotive at the end of the 1800s.

An unsettling paradox: over fifty years of marked progress yet we are not any happier…
Why does a leading economist write a book about ‘soft stuff’ such as happiness? Even more puzzling: why does he title the book “Happiness. Lessons from a new science”? Richard Layard is the founder of a relevant economics research center within the London School of Economics, author of several academic books on topics such as unemployment and inequality. This latest effort of his is truly ground braking and starts from a simple observation: “There is a paradox at the heart of our lives. Most people want more income and strive for it. Yet as Western societies have got richer, their people have become not happier. This is no old wives’ tale. It is a fact proven by many pieces of scientific research. As I’ll show, we have good ways to measure how happy people are, and all the evidence says that on average people are no happier today than people were fifty years ago. Yet at the same time average incomes have more than doubled. This paradox is equally true for the United States and Britain and Japan”. Layard in this book tries to go to the roots of this paradox and in the process makes a strong case for learning how to use the ‘science of happiness’ in our daily lives while supporting the argument to raise this science to the level of public political debate and action.
The seven factors that influence happiness
Layard points out seven factors that are key to the perception of happiness. They are (altro…)
