Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy headlines new technology-centric golf league

ATLANTA – A new technology-focused golf league led by Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and former Golf Channel president Mike McCarley was unveiled Wednesday at East Lake.

McIlroy and McCarley, who have partnered with Woods to form TMRW Sports, outlined the tech-infused startup that will feature six three-man teams of PGA Tour players competing in made-for-television events that will combine virtual technology and a green complex at a custom-built venue.

The TGL events, which will include 15 regular-season matches and a postseason, consisting of the league’s top four teams, is scheduled to begin in January 2024 and will mostly air on Monday nights. Each team will play each other twice during the regular season.

Elon Musk Wants to End Mobile Dead Zones (There’s a Big Hurdle)

Elon Musk is a master of promoting new technology ideas, but of course not all of them come to fruition.

Yes, Musk’s Tesla (TSLA) has become the world’s biggest EV maker and most valuable automobile company, but that hyperloop thing has really fallen by the wayside. And Tesla’s full self driving software is still in beta. And of course, nobody’s even seen a Cybertruck in the wild because they’re not going to start making them until next year.

Such is the fate of visionary disrupters, of course. And overall, it’s probably fair to admit that Musk has delivered on a lot more ideas than most people have even had.

The End of a Big Communications Problem

Now, Musk and T-Mobile have announced plans to offer technology to end one of the cell phone industry’s biggest problems.

Musk and T-Mobile’s CEO discussed the new technology at an event at

Las Vegas Valley Water District installing new technology to track ‘real-time’ water use

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – There’s a new way to crack down on water usage and water waste in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) is rolling out new technology that keeps a closer eye on how much water people are using in their yards.

It’s called advanced metered infrastructure, and a LVVWD spokesperson said it’s becoming an industry standard for different utilities.

Advanced meters are already installed in part of the Las Vegas valley and will be the norm starting next year.

The technology uses a communication network to send and receive signals from the meters remotely.

“It allows customers to get information in almost real-time about their water use to allow them to use water more efficiently,” LVVWD spokesman Corey Enus said.

The water district said it has wastewater investigators that patrol the valley 24 hours seven days a week, and that’s not going away.

Cheap, high capacity, and fast: New aluminum battery tech promises it all

Cheap, high capacity, and fast: New aluminum battery tech promises it all

There’s a classic irony with new technology, that adopters are forced to limit themselves to two of the three things everyone wants: fast, cheap, and good. When the tech is batteries, adoption is even more challenging. Cheap and fast (charging) still matter, but “good” can mean different things, such as light weight, low volume, or long life span, depending on your needs. Still, the same sorts of trade-offs are involved. If you want really fast charging, you’ll probably have to give up some capacity.

Those trade-offs keep research into alternate battery chemistries going despite the massive lead lithium has in terms of technology and manufacturing capabilities—there’s still the hope that some other chemistry could provide a big drop in price or a big boost in some measure of performance.

Today, a paper is being published that appears to offer a low price combined with a

New Technology Brings New Opportunities: US-China Business Forum

Technology advances are bringing new ways for US and China businesses to work together at a time of geopolitical tension, Zhonglu Group Vice Chairman George Wang told, at the US-China Business Forum in New York on Tuesday.

In the electric vehicle field, for instance, change is fast and intertwining is rapid. Tesla over just in the past few years has become one of the largest electric vehicle makers in China. Meanwhile, BYD — backed by Warren Buffett yet little known outside of China — has achieved a market cap larger than GM and Ford combined, and turned into a supplier to Tesla.

“Who would have imagined that only a few years ago?” Wang said of the Tesla-BYD tie. “We see new forms of US-China collaboration taking shape.” In the US, for instance, China-based SEMCORP earlier this year plans to invest more

Melrose is leading the nation on new EV charging technology


Electric vehicle chargers mounted on utility poles are being used to great success in Melrose.

While electric vehicles are becoming more common, there are still multiple factors to consider before making the switch. Electric vehicles are still generally expensive, so price is a factor. But another barrier preventing the expansion of electric vehicle use is access to charging stations.

Many communities now offer public EV charging stations, but owners still benefit from having their own charging capabilities in their garage or driveway. What about those that don’t have those types of spaces where they live? An innovative solution is playing out in Melrose. The city has become one of the first in the nation to install EV charging stations mounted on utility poles along its streets.

These stations have multiple benefits. Most EV charging stations

How To Transfer A Futuristic Know-how To A Working Application? — English

Futuristic TechnologyA transformation from intelligent to emotive – no, it is not your girlfriend during an argument. Likewise, on the earth of human mobility: when futuristic applied sciences like MULTI that are up and operating meet those just like the hyperloop that will quickly be prepared, you may be able to get on an elevator, journey lots of of kilometers, and get off that same vehicle in one other city. Futuristic, sure, however all technologies once had been – before they develop into the norm.

Fly from New York to Shanghai in 39 minutes. The ambitions of SpaceX have generated buzz since Elon Musk based it in 2002. However while everyone is focused on if and once they’ll send civilians to Mars (“Inside ten years,” says SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell who took the TED stage), the same rocket ships used of their Mars missions will serve one other, more accessible goal: … Read more

‘Is this club on the list?'”

Tiger Woods, regardless of the fact that he is currently absent from the field, is still active on the golf scene. TaylorMade’s Stealth driver is a real refresh on the golf scene. New technology enables many things. Many expect the company to make a big deal with the Stealth driver.

Keith Sbarbaro, TaylorMade’s VP of Tour Operations, emphasized that the company is trying to improve things. Some players may have problems with it, but Woods is one of the first to try the new technology. Strange, because otherwise, he is not a fan of new things.

“The transition into Stealth this year has been seamless for everyone on our staff,” Sbarbaro told GOLF.com. “Guys have loved it. For whatever reason, guys fought a bit more last season to get into SIM2.

It’s not easy to convert all of these top players into the new stuff every year —

NYC rolling out anti-speeding technology on city fleet cars

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — New York City is trying to put the brakes on speeding by implementing new technology in city fleet vehicles as part of a pilot program.

Major Eric Adams and Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) Commissioner Dawn Pinnock announced the implementation of active intelligent speed assistance (ISA) technology in 50 vehicles.

ISA technology restricts a vehicle’s maximum speed, preventing it from exceeding local speed limits.

The pilot program will offer a tool to regulate and standardize safe driving among city employees and is the latest safety initiative to be implemented as part of the DCAS Safe Fleet Transition Plan for city fleet units.

“Speeding ruins lives, so we must take action to prevent it, and New York City is leading by example by implementing new technology to reduce speeds on city fleet vehicles,” Adams said. “Our streets must be livable for everyone, and this technology
