Bound to be overlooked in all the fuss were the smaller awards to the smaller companies, even when the funding makes an important point. Is the electric car revolution all about cars?

Began to shift commercial shipping from rail to truck (in the 1920s) we’ve faced highway gridlock and diesel pollution, not to mention a security nightmare a few well placed terrorist attacks on highways could paralyze interstate shipping..
The most famous scene in Battleship Potemkin, which is paid homage by such directors as Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, and Terry Gilliam, happens on the Odessa steps when the Cossacks shoot a woman who subsequently crashes into her infant’s pram. This causes the baby to tumble down the stairs to the audience’s horrified interest. There’s so many contrasts in this scene that it is difficult to pinpoint all of them, because Eisenstein’s film intentionally captures an array of perspectives which all happen with minimal lingering; it was done this way to avoid creating a plot or character driven narrative.
Some may say it short sighted to expect fireworks in every match of a two week grand slam and that fair enough, but if you tuning into a semi final, you entitled to hope for something better than you see in the preceding five rounds.This was the side of the draw that could have produced a Nadal Kyrgios or a Nadal Dimitrov semi final. Surely one of those match ups would have resulted in more excitement than what we saw on Rod Laver Arena on Thursday night.Perhaps Nadal would have overcome Cilic had he not been struck down with a hip injury, and maybe Djokovic would have been playing Federer on Friday if it wasn for a dodgy elbow that saw him operate under full capacity and lose to Chung.You can help but feel having at least one of those two in the semis alongside Federer would have increased the likelihood of something worth watching actually occurring across the two nights.The boring spectacles that were the men semis only seem worse when compared to what we witnessed on the women side of the draw. Simona Halep incredible 6 3 4 6 9 7 win over Angelique Kerber was two hours and 20 minutes of pure ecstasy for fans and pure hell for the players.The top seed and the rampaging German delivered a match worthy of a grand slam final, not just a semi, as they pushed themselves to the brink and beyond in an exhilarating show full of courage and captivating rallies.Kerber was running on one leg and Halep too was cooked, but neither gave an inch.
