What will the car of 2040 be
jamuna news: What will the car look like by the time the petrol and diesel combustion engine is banned from sale? Will we still be driving, or will we be living in a utopia filled with gleaming white pods silently whizzing about the streets ferrying people to and fro?
The car of the future is still in flux. While many agree that it will be autonomous, will hopefully be accident-free, probably battery powered and will likely be radically different on the inside, if still familiar on the outside, there are broadly two routes down which the car can wind to 2040.
The first is the model we are familiar with: car ownership.
There are more than 34.4m cars on British roads, with a new record of 2.69m sold in 2016 in an industry worth £77.5bn a year, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. It’s clear the British still love their cars.
Automotive manufacturers across the globe would love nothing more than the current model of private car ownership to continue. A car parked outside every home, new models bought on registration plate changes and regular servicing at your local garage, just with the car able to drive itself there for a robot to do the work.
That route could see the car transform from a vehicle into a moving personal space. Once it drives itself, there’s no need to have the traditional layout – or even to face forward.
Maternal high-fat diet may
jamuna lifestyle desk: Babies whose mothers consumed a high-fat diet during their pregnancy may be at an increased risk of developing mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression, a study has warned.
The findings, of an animal study, showed that an unhealthy diet not only creates health problems for expectant
mothers,but also alters children’s’ development of the brain and endocrine system which may cause long-lasting mental health ramifications.
“Given the high level of dietary fat consumption and maternal obesity in developed nations, these findings have important implications for the mental health of future generations,” said Elinor Sullivan, assistant professor at the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in the US.
Further, exposure to a high-fat diet during gestation and early in development impaired the development of neurons containing serotonin a neurotransmitter that is critical in developing brains.
On the other hand, introducing the child to a healthy diet at an early age also failed to reverse the effect, the researchers said.
“It’s not about blaming the mother,” but “about educating pregnant women about the potential risks of a high-fat diet in pregnancy and empowering them and their families to make healthy choices by providing support. We also need to craft public policies that promote healthy lifestyles and diets,” Sullivan noted.
For the study, published in the journal Frontiers in Endocrinology, the team tested the effect of a maternal high-fat diet on non-human primates, tightly controlling their diet in a way that would be impossible in a human population.
Researchers grouped a total of 65 female Japanese macaques into two groups, one given a high-fat diet and one a control diet during pregnancy. They subsequently measured and compared anxiety-like
behaviouramong 135 offspring and found that both males and females exposed to a high-fat diet during pregnancy exhibited greaterincidence of anxiety compared with those in the control group.
