As electric car sales soar, the industry faces a cobalt crisis

First it was lithium, now its cobalt. Electric vehicles need them for batteries, but supply issues will only worsen as demand rises Electric vehicle sales are soaring, with factories working full-pelt to churn out as many batteries as possible.

In Europe alone, 540,000 electric cars will be sold this year, an increase from 319,000 last year. For that to happen, we don’t just need gigafactories to build the batteries but also...

The juicy, painstaking quest to make tomatoes taste less awful

On the can, a yellow label proudly proclaimed the paste’s genetically modified origins. The paste – the first genetically modified food sold...

Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales wanted to save journalism. He didn't

When it launched in 2017, WikiTribune had a bold plan to rewrite the journalism rulebook. Less than a year later it had laid off all its editorial staff after burning through hundreds of thousands of pounds. What went wrong? “Jimmy’s frame of reference about journalism is that it’s easy, it’s just a nice turn of phrase. That comes from believing that the wiki-way means you can do anything.” In 2017, Jimmy “Jimbo” Wales – the Wikipedia cofounder whose plaintive face used to haunt the free encyclopedia’s homepage during fundraising campaigns – decided to save journalism. As an avid consumer...
