Although demands for electric vehicles (EVs) have risen over the years, production has stalled while consumer skepticism has been fueled by battery problems. Nevertheless, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of EVs are focusing their investments in producing EV batteries and motors. Reports have it that Ford and GM are both intent on building massive battery manufacturing plants, instead of producing whole new lines of electric-powered vehicles.

While this business strategy can help reduce consumer skepticism over the adoption of electric vehicles, the greater assurance that will fully convince the population to get into EV driving, is the availability of support in terms of infrastructures.

Biden Administration Secures Funding for Infrastructure Projects

Early this year, after several wheeling and dealing among politicians, Congress finally passed the bipartisan Infrastructure Law that includes the building of the national electric vehicle charging network (NEV). This project is touted as the most critical step to make the full blown adoption of electric vehicles a reality.

The NEV project, through the collaborative efforts of the Biden administration’s Dept. of Transportation and Dept. of Energy, will make EV charging accessible across the country to all Americans.

In line with the launch of the NEV project, President Biden announced a $5 billion funding that will be released over the projected 5-year period by which the National Electric Vehicle Charging Network will be completed.
The $5 billion funding will be allocated to the different states to use in the creation of a network of charging stations located in designated Alternative Fuel Corridors along Interstate Highway Systems.

What Exactly is an Alternative Fuel Corridor?

Apart from electricity, the phasing out of petrol-fueled vehicles also support the use of cars running on alternative fuels like propane, hydrogen or alcohol such as butanol, methanol, ethanol, vegetable and waste-derived fuel.

On its part, the Federal Highway Administration instituted a program for Alternave Fuel Corridors in their jurisdiction. The program entailed the establishment and identification of highway segments supporting infrastructures for different alternative fuel options

Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm of the U.S Department of Energy remarked that through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, America’s national highway system will be modernized for drivers in cities, towns and rural communities, be they large or small. The purpose of which is mainly to harness the benefits of driving electric vehicles, which include saving money when travelling across America from coast-to-coast.

In the meantime, don’t worry about not having sources of traditional cars to convert using alternative fuels, while the 5-year NEV project is ongoing. In Phoenix, Arizona, the Earnhardt Auto Centers have a diverse fleet of more than two thousand new and pre-owned cars in 17 locations.
However, to make sure you will be making the right trip, it’s recommended to first check the availability of the vehicle at the No Bull website. That way, you’ll know where and which Earnhardt car dealer has the brand and model of car you are looking to purchase.

To say that this will be a tumultuous political season is an understatement. Children do not appear to be immune to the hyperbole in campaign commercials, the poison that may often occur on social media, or even emotionally intense debate among friends or relatives. What influence does this have on our children, and what can we do to assist them to stay mentally healthy?

We sought advice from Jennifer Katzenstein, Ph.D., co-director of the Center for Behavioral Health and director of psychology at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.

During this election season, children are hearing and seeing a lot. How are they affected by this? Many children, particularly older school-age students and teens, are affected by the stress and worry they witness. Some children are in the process of gaining autonomy and moving away from concrete thinking. If they observe their parents and other caregivers in distress, they might develop long-term confusion and feelings of anguish. The goal is to get rid of the emotion. It is critical to speak with children of all ages about political concerns, various viewpoints, and how we can all work together for the common good.

Teenagers are reacting to and participating in politics in unprecedented ways. Do you have any suggestions for teen parents? It is for us to allow our teenagers to express themselves is important, but keep in mind that what they post on social media typically lasts longer than the election, and it may not accurately reflect their long-term opinions.

Should parents try to sway their children’s political opinions? Although we want to impart our values to children for them to gain knowledge to make decisions, which may include dogmas, it’s also crucial to provide them the opportunity to consider all sides of situations and acknowledge all viewpoints that they need to understand.
