Amazon Ramps Up Delivery Business With Rivian Electric Vehicles To Reach Climate Goals

As Amazon (AMZN) continues the expansion of its delivery fleet, the online retailer has revealed its electric delivery van developed in partnership with Rivian.

The all-electric vans have begun to arrive just a year after Amazon made a commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040. The company has plans to take delivery of 100,000 electric vans from Rivian by 2030, with 10,000 expected to be on the roads by 2022.

The Rivian vans were developed to “enhance the driver experience and optimize safety” with a customized configuration that comes in three different models. The vans feature sensor detection, highway and traffic assist features, larger windshield, exterior cameras with digital display, Alexa integration, stronger door design, interior “dancefloor” for added space, multiple tail lights, and three levels of shelving to store packages.

Millimeter-precision drug delivery to the brain — ScienceDaily

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a method for concentrating and releasing drugs in the brain with pinpoint accuracy. This could make it possible in the future to deliver psychiatric and cancer drugs and other medications only to those regions of the brain where this is medically desirable.

Today, this is practically impossible — drugs travelling through the bloodstream reach the entire brain and body, which in some cases causes side effects. The new method is non-invasive, with precise drug delivery in the brain controlled from outside the head using ultrasound. Mehmet Fatih Yanik, Professor of Neurotechnology, and his team of scientists have published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

In order to prevent a drug from acting on the entire brain and body, the new method involves special drug carriers that wrap the drugs in spherical lipid vesicles attached to gas-containing ultrasound-?sensitive microbubbles. These are injected into

Delivery driver throws ‘fragile’ parcel over a wall

Watch: Delivery driver caught in the act

This is the moment a DPD delivery driver took a photo to say a fragile parcel had been delivered – and then launched it over a nearby 6ft wall.

Jonathan Ward, 51, sold the £625 fabric printer on online auction site eBay and said he posted it to the buyer inside a box covered in eight stickers marking it as fragile or delicate.

However, he was horrified when the buyer got in touch to say it had arrived ‘broken beyond repair’.

CCTV footage shows the delivery driver taking a ‘proof of postage’ photo, before lifting the 25kg parcel over his head and pushing it over a wall.

Another video shows it landing on the other side, bouncing off a metal staircase, which Ward claims must have been when it broke.

The precious parcel – a printer bought to make face masks – landed
