Xiaopeng Motors responds to Ningbo assisted driving accident

On August 10, a Xiaopeng P7 in Ningbo collided with a person who was checking the breakdown of the vehicle ahead while driving on an elevated road, and the victim was unfortunately killed. According to the online video, the rear of the hit vehicle was severely torn, and the front of the Xpeng P7 was also deformed.

According to the owner of the Xiaopeng car, the lane centering assist function (LCC) was turned on at the time of the incident, and the speed also met the elevated speed limit of 80km/h, but the vehicle did not issue any warning before the impact.

In this regard, Xiaopeng Motors stated that the traffic police department has already filed a case for handling this, and Xiaopeng Motors will fully cooperate with relevant departments to conduct accident investigations and assist customers in handling follow-up related matters.

According to public information, Xiaopeng Motors’ assisted driving XPilot includes functions such as Lane Centering Assist (LCC), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Automatic Lane Change Assist (ALC).

It is reported that in the mandatory safety education and training of intelligent driving for car owners, Xiaopeng Motors marked the usage scenarios that cannot be recognized under the ACC + LCC function, including low-speed or stationary construction vehicles/sweepers, horizontally parked accident vehicles, traffic jams or traffic jams.

Nature: Strong evidence that Earth's continents were formed by meteorite impact

According to the latest issue of "Nature", new research from Curtin University in Australia provides the strongest evidence yet for the "meteorite impact theory" of continental formation.

The theory has been around for decades, but there has been little solid evidence to support it before.

By analyzing zircon in an ancient crustal relic in Western Australia, the research team found that the composition of its oxygen isotopes revealed the process of "top-down" activity of oxygen elements –

That is, oxygen starts from melting rocks near the surface and gradually penetrates deep into the ground, a process consistent with the geological effects caused by the impact of giant meteorites.

"Our study provides the first conclusive evidence that the eventual formation of continents began with giant meteorite impacts, leading to events like the extinction of the dinosaurs," Dr Johnson said.

Understanding the formation and evolution of Earth's continents could lead to the discovery of key continents such as lithium, tin and nickel, which are essential for advancing emerging green technologies needed to mitigate climate change.

Why do female players tend to prefer to play supporting roles?

In team cooperation games, many female players always choose dependent auxiliary roles such as healers.

Female players are often at risk of being underestimated due to the inability of such roles to directly contribute to team wins.

But why do they continue to choose such roles?

A study published in New Media & Society suggests why:

First, this may stem from a fondness for the supporting characters themselves.

Second, filling such roles to improve the combat effectiveness of the team may be seen by female players as an obligation to balance team composition.

Finally, this may also be brought about by the social characteristics embodied by game characters.

DPS characters are highly aggressive and are often considered the purview of male players. The therapeutic role is usually in a passive fighting state and achieves teamwork by taking care of others, which is feminine.

Under this expectation, female players are encouraged to take on the role of healers.

This phenomenon is the reflection of social gender norms in the game.

It can be seen that in order to break gender norms in all aspects, it is still necessary to encourage women to burst out more new energy in new fields.

iPhone 14 may be released early

And the official sales will start on the 23rd.

It is reported that September 5 is Labor Day in the United States, which is a legal holiday and is usually the time for parties, gatherings and sports events.

Earlier, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman also said that Apple has begun recording its fall conference.

If the launch is earlier, it means that Apple will give consumers a longer consideration time, possibly hoping to dynamically adjust the stocking situation of the new machine by observing the feedback from the market.
