Electric is the new pink! Cadillac’s new and sustainable muscle car



Cadillac will soon make its debut into the electric vehicle (EV) market as the car company works to support a more sustainable future.

All-new Cadillac Lyriq SUV

Its 2023 Lyriq SUV is a sign of things to come, signalling a crossover from their traditional internal combustion engines (ICE). 

The electric vehicle is the first of a new lineup, exclusively featuring eclectic-powered SUVs.

The new fleet comes after Cadillac’s pledge to make all of the brand’s vehicles electric by 2030, according to Rory Harvey, the Global Vice-President of Cadillac.

“We will be leaving this decade as an EV brand as things stand today,” Harvey says.

 “We will not be selling ICE vehicles by 2030.”

Cadillac’s Lyriq features a 340 horsepower engine, 33-inch LED display screen spanning across the dash and comes with super cruise driver-assistance technology. 

And for those hesitant about relying on electricity as a “fuel-source” per se, the Lyriq can travel more than 300 miles each charge. 

“The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ will deliver a high-performance luxury experience setting a new standard for Cadillac,” Rory Harvey says.

A step into the future but with the same loved design

As for the Lyriq’s exterior design, it’s centrepiece is its full-glass roof and vented roof spoiler.

While it may feel like something out of the future, the tastes of traditional Cadillac fans will continue to be met. 

In recognition of classic Cadillac styling, vertical tail lamps make an appearance with an etched pattern inspired by the illuminated Cadillac Crest on the Lyriq’s grille. 

If you’re still not convinced, the SUV is bound to have all the bells and whistles that any car enthusiast could wish for.

It’s time to start saving big!

But the rear-wheel drive doesn’t come cheap, with a hefty price tag attached.

You’re looking at a starting price of US$58,795 – quite achievable compared to other car brands. 

Pre-orders commence September 18 this year, with the rollout scheduled to commence in the first half of 2022.

Amazon employees walk out to protest office policies



Staff at warehousing giant Amazon have walked off the job to protest the company’s return-to-office program

Over 1,900 Amazon employees pledged to protest globally over proposed changes to the company’s climate policy, layoffs and a return-to-office mandate.

The activist group behind the rally is known as Amazon Employees for Climate Justice (AECJ), who are seeking a greater voice for employees.

“Our goal is to change Amazon’s cost/benefit analysis on making harmful, unilateral decisions that are having an outsized impact on people of color, women, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people,” organisers said.

Over 100 people gathered at the heart of Amazon’s Seattle headquarters on Wednesday. The company said it had not witnessed any other demonstrations.

AECJ said the walkout comes after Amazon made moves “in the wrong direction”.

The company recently has recently overturned a desire to make all Amazon shipments net zero for carbon emissions by 2030.

The company maintains a pledge on climate change.

Amazon spokesperson Brad Glasser told Reuters the company is pursuing a strategy to cut carbon emissions.

“For companies like ours who consume a lot of power, and have very substantial transportation, packaging, and physical building assets, it’ll take time to accomplish.”

AECJ protesters also sought support for the 27,000 staff, who had lost their jobs in recent months —around 9 per cent of Amazon’s global workforce.

The company has also mandated a return-to-office program.

“I think there is a great risk”: will AI steal our jobs?



Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
