Last Source Entry & Conclusion

For my last source, it’s going to be a website that is mainly for cars. “The future of motoring – what will cars be like in 25 years?” The article starts off by saying it isn’t getting easier to be a keen driver or a maker of performance cars. Throughout the article, they talk about both electric parts and motor parts in a car around 2040. “As we move closer to 2040, the majority of cars will be electrified in some way and the engine may no longer be the primary drive; its role would be to support an electric motor”, says Ricardo’s chief technical and innovation officer, Neville Jackson.” In addition, they talk about battery life. “The major stumbling blocks of any battery-electric car are range and the time it takes to recharge. By 2040, things could look very different, with battery-electric cars capable of driving up to 250 miles on a single charge and taking a 75% charge in as little as 15 minutes.” As of now 2020, an electric car battery can last for 400 miles on a full charge. By 2040 they believe that the battery life will be 500 miles and could take about 25 minutes for a full charge which is unbelievable. Next, they talk about uber using electric cars in the future. “Uber announced that “100 percent” of rides will take place in electric vehicles by 2030 in the US, Canada, and Europe, and by 2040 for the rest of the world. But rather than pay drivers directly to trade their gas-burning vehicles for electric ones, the company will impose an extra fee on trips completed in an electric vehicle to incentivize drivers to make the switch.” Having uber use only electric cars can either go two ways. One way is good where the driver doesn’t have to spend money on gas and doesn’t have to worry about the car breaking down. It will also be good for pollution. Then the bad thing is the driver doesn’t know how to operate the vehicle since it’s different from other cars. In addition, once the car battery needs to be charged the driver won’t have any fares because they’re at the charging station. Based on what I read in this article, I can see that the person who wrote this is in favor of electric and motor cars. 

To conclude, I am satisfied with the research I learned about electric cars. Before researching whether electric cars will be the future or not I was always a fan of electric cars. I knew they were reliable and would be cheaper to maintain than a regular car. Something that stood out whilst researching was that we now see electric cars all over New York. They recently got popular because of tesla which is the number one electric car company. What i’m trying to say is that in 10 years the electric car industry will be so much more upgraded than it is now and I can’t wait to see how it turns out. In my opinion, I believe that in a few years the motor car industry won’t be as popular as they are now. They won’t be as reliable as electric cars and people will see that and start to have electric cars. The audience that I think should read this research paper should be people between the ages of 18-24. I say this because people around this age usually get their first car or even their second car. So when they go car shopping after reading my paper there might be a chance they decide they either want an electric car or motor car. The purpose of my researching this topic is because I wanted to know more information about electric cars and what I learned is that electric cars are going to be bigger than any other car industry.

a summary of the source’s content this non fiction article ”The History Of Vaccines And Immunization: Familiar Patterns, New Challenges. The history a he did

twelve such experiments and sixteen additional case histories he had collected since the 1770s Edward Jenner’s creation of the world’s first vaccine for smallpox in the 1790s. We then demonstrate that many of the issues of how Human beings have benefited from vaccines for more than two centuries. Yet the pathway to effective vaccines has been neither neat nor direct.f Edward Jenner, a country doctor living in Berkeley.By 1800, for instance, 100,000 people had been vaccinated in Europe, and vaccination had begun in the United States.both immunization campaigns and vaccine trails—have been supported by global health organizations and major philanthropies such as the Rockefeller Foundation and the Bill .and Melinda Gates Foundation,most drugs, which are essentially chemical agents, vaccines are ”biologic agents that can be compromised during processing.”The perpose is writing this is the vaccine will help others and not have any problem with their immune system. The germs is endless and can be neither completely by vaccines, no matter how great their immunological power. Sadly, effective vaccines for two of the world’s leading killers, HIV and malaria, remain in the research stage. Furthermore, even the most knowledgeable scientist cannot precisely predict the strain of next year’s influenza, nor can an expert epidemiologist always explain why certain diseases rise and burn out at particular rates.
Its a good choice for the author convincing and making sure that each individual is okay and healthy. Americans take advantage of the flu shortage hysteria of fall 2004 to learn from the historical record. We need to transform our anxieties and energies into concrete steps to ensure a comprehensive vaccine supply in 2005 and beyond. It would be exceedingly foolish to squander one of preventive medicine’s greatest assets because of a neglected public health system and an inability to adequately coordinate market forces and regulatory demands with basic health needs.You cannot catch” the disease from the vaccine. Some vaccines contain kille virus, and it is impossible to get the disease from them. Others have live, but weakened, viruses designed to ensure that you cannot catch the disease.A vaccine-preventable disease that might make you sick for a week or two could prove deadly for your children, grandchildren, or parents if it spreads to them. When you get vaccinated, you’re protecting yourself and your family. For example, adults are the most common source of pertussis (whooping cough) infection in infants, which can be deadly in infants.


You have now comprehensive knowledge on when Automobiles first became a practical alternative to the horse (And buggy) and have some idea of how an automobile is powered as we discussed a few different power sources and which type of engine uses what (for instance an internal combustion engine uses gasoline as its primary power source and an electric vehicle uses electricity to power its lithium ion battery). After reading the majority of this essay it should also become apparent on how much the world (In particular the United States of America) relies heavily on the automobile both for it’s use to commute or deliver products and the industry that provides many jobs manufacturing our country’s millions of automobiles and to maintain them. We have discussed how the automobile has brought newfound freedoms and independence as well as comfort and convenience to us humans as it is definitely preferable to take a warm car ride then to trudge in the snow and get frostbitten on a winter day, or to avoid dripping in sweat in the summer (Air conditioning was implemented in automobiles in as early as 1940 almost 80 years ago) not to mention the amount of time saved being that automobiles are an extremely fast mode of transportation when compared to walking or riding a horse. However in addition to all the good things automobiles provide (fast comfortable transportation) there are some concerns which we have also addressed, pollution being one of the larger concerns. The creation of the EPA and the issue of smog were brought up as well as the amount of emissions reduced over the years so with that issue tackled we then moved onto to car safety over the years which I think is a bigger issue (And which subsequently became a large vocal part of the essay asking if driving would ever become illegal). The biggest safety issue in automobiles lies within the driver and not the automobile as the design has been nearly perfected over the past century, more recently the IIHS has come out with crash test ratings of almost every vehicle in the market so buyers can see firsthand how their vehicle stacks up against other vehicles in it’s class. On to the driver being the issue, automobile manufactures have had to limit certain features of the car due to the drivers becoming distracted. Texting and driving has become the leading cause of automobile accidents by an enormous margin greatly surpassing driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and remains one the biggest issues so much so that Joe Rogan brought up on his podcast the following slightly provoking question, Will driving ever become illegal? Which led us to discuss how far we have come in A.I., driving assists and self driving technology. Auto manufactures have already been given deadlines by the state of California which stated that by a certain year only vehicles that produce zero emissions from the tailpipe will be allowed to be sold there. In addition to these deadlines for Zero emission vehicles the shortcoming of the power grid and the need for a large clean energy source were discussed as I the writer after conducting my research determined(along with a few of the articles I came across) that we need a power source as clean as solar but more powerful in order to charge millions of EV’s, so what do you think of all of this? Will you buy an EV? Do you think driving might become illegal?
