The multi-billion dollar USPS modernization looks like...a duck

The United States Postal Service is finally modernizing its fleet of delivery trucks, but the proposed vehicle design is a head scratcher. 

It's no secret that the USPS is literally falling apart, and its current fleet of delivery vehicles is no exception. Its current trucks, which were purchased between 1987 and 1994, keep catching fire as they continue to deliver mail decades beyond what was supposed to be a 24-year life expectancy. Last July, Vice reported that more than 141,000 of these original trucks are still in service. 

The USPS is at least updating its fleet with a multi-billion dollar modernization plan that involves revamping its delivery trucks with more modern ones over the next decade. On Tuesday, the USPS announced that it awarded a 10-year contract to Oshkosh Defense to "manufacture a new generation of U.S.-built postal delivery vehicles that will drive the most dramatic modernization of the USPS fleet in three decades."  Read more...

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
