Chevy and GMC gasoline-powered pickups close in on an expiration date

  Chevy and GMC gasoline-powered pickups close in on an expiration date General Motors hopes to only build zero-emissions vehicles come 2035, and that means the trucks as we know them will likely soon be gone.GM detailed sweeping plans and goals in a new climate plan on Thursday and included the efforts to only sell zero-emissions vehicles by 2035. During a media call, Dane Parker, GM's chief sustainability officer, affirmed with Roadshow that "light-duty vehicle" categorization also includes light-duty pickup trucks that feature gasoline and diesel engines. So, we're talking about the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Colorado, GMC Sierra 1500 and Canyon that face radical changes in the years to come.

After moving online last year, Art Basel Hong Kong will make its return to the Asian archipelago from May 19th to 23rd. The organizers of the Fair also plan to launch several digital initiatives simultaneously. At your agendas!

Last year, Art Basel Hong Kong was one of the first artistic events to be canceled because of the Pandemic of Covid-19. If the organizers of the fair have returned by setting up "Online Viewing Rooms" (virtual business rooms), they now go on a hybrid format for the next edition of the Hong Kong Fair.

2021 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition Dyno Test

  2021 Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition Dyno Test How much power does Husqvarna’s special-edition 450 motocrosser make in 2021?Since 2018, Husqvarna has offered a limited-edition version of its standard FC 450 model called the FC 450 Rockstar Edition. Typically unveiled before the beginning of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series, the 2021 model was no different as Husqvarna released details about the bike in early December 2020. Although it features several trick components from the Husqvarna Technical Accessories catalog, the only parts on this year’s model that could give it a different power character in comparison to the standard FC 450 are the Connectivity Unit and FMF Racing Factory 4.1 silencer.

More than 100 galleries will meet in mid-May at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (HKCEC) to participate in the ninth iteration of the Art Fair, including PKM Gallery, Gagosian and Pilar Corrias. If the event will be considerably smaller than in previous years due to travel restrictions related to the health crisis, Art organizers Basel Hong Kong offer an alternative solution to about fifty international galleries: "satellite stands".

This new concept offers the possibility for exhibitors who can go to the Asian territory to present their own exhibitions at HKCEC with the help of a local representative named by Art Basel. Further amenities have also been made to allow some participating galleries to share stands, such as Silverlens and Rossi & Rossi, Meyer Riegger and SIES + Höke, as well as Antenna Space and Balice Hertling.

Adapting to the current circumstances

"It has been very stimulating to see how the art world has adapted to the current circumstances," said Adeline Ooi, the Director of Art Basel Hong Kong. "We are delighted to introduce new models that support our galleries, satellite stands to the expansion of our digital offers, in order to amplify the international reach of our galleries with 'Art Basel Live: Hong Kong'".

If it is very unlikely that the ninth edition of the Hong Kong Fair attracts 90,000 visitors as in 2019, it will be broadcast online as part of "Art Basel Live: Hong Kong". An "Online Viewing Room", special events and virtual visits for the VIP of HKCEC and Hong Kong will also be offered to art lovers. More information on this digital event will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tested: 2022 Kia Carnival Fancies Up the Minivan .
Kia's new van looks great and pleases its driver, but it's almost too nice inside for kids.Not only does the Carnival have a new name and Kia's attractive new logo, its design looks fresh and modern. After the Pacifica's mid-cycle refresh, the Kia is a contender for best-looking van. The textured grille makes a strong first impression, and the interesting shiny C-pillar trim is an upscale touch. We don't fully buy into Kia's assertion that it looks more like an SUV than a van, but as minivan aficionados we like the unapologetically boxy shape.
