BMW to phase out fossil-fuel burning engines from main plant by 2024

BERLIN --- BMW will stop making internal combustion engines at its main plant in Munich by 2024, its head of production said on Friday at a conference marking the start of production of its electric i4 model. The ICE engines currently made in Munich will be produced in BMW's factories in Austria and the UK in the future, production chief Milan Nedeljkovic said, though cars using the engines will still be assembled at the Munich plant. Still, by 2023 at least half the vehicles produced in Munich would be electrified - either battery electric or plug-in hybrid, the company said. BMW has set itself a target for at least 50% of new global car sales to be electric by 2030, and CE...

US remembers the day the world changed 80 years ago at Pearl Harbor
The United States marked the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Tuesday as the number of Americans belonging to the "Greatest Generation" who lived through World War II dwindles. The attack on Dec. 7, 1941, shook a country so focused on the war in Europe that it lost sight of the threat posed by Japan, according to historians. It killed 2,390 Americans, and the United States declared war on Japan the next day. "The ranks of Pearl Harbor survivors grow thinner with each passing year. But the memory of their heroism-and our gratitude-still shine bright," US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement. "They were among t...Keep on reading: US remembers the day the world changed 80 years ago at Pearl Harbor

Marcos was not a war hero; he impoverished PH in his 20-year-rule – ABKD
MANILA, Philippines --- It's not true that Ferdinand Marcos was the most decorated Filipino soldier in World War II and contrary to claims by his family and supporters, he impoverished the country during his 20-year rule, a group of academics said in its first fact-checking report on Tuesday. The Akademiya at Bayan Laban sa Disimpormasyon at Dayaan (ABKD), which was organized last month, was correcting assertions by the dictator's daughter, Sen. Imee Marcos, and his son and namesake, who is trying to follow in his father's footsteps to Malacanang.

Philippine Bar Association offers legal assistance to ‘targeted’ journalists

In a statement, the PBA said it was aware that criminal cases could be "stressful and financially-draining." "They are time-consuming and for those without ready access to competent legal counsel, can become debilitating experiences. The sheer scope and breadth of the targeted journalists, not to mention the amount being asked from each (P200,000,000.00) leave little doubt that this slew of suits will introduce a 'chilling effect,'" the association said. ...Keep on reading: Philippine Bar Association offers legal assistance to ‘targeted’ journalists
