Seeing your child off to college is an emotional transition, especially if they are going far away from home. Sending them away in the family vehicle can create even more worry and stress. A little advance planning and a well-maintained vehicle can offer peace-of-mind to parents, says the non-profit Car Care Council
Get a sendoff vehicle inspection: College is a busy time for students and it is likely that car care at college will not be top of mind. Be sure to schedule a thorough vehicle inspection before packing up the car so you can rest easy knowing your child is driving a road-ready vehicle. Make an emergency plan: Discuss a plan with your child in case they experience a roadside emergency. Be sure they know who to contact for roadside assistance and stock the car with an emergency kit, including jumper cables, emergency flares, a flashlight with batteries, blankets and extra clothes, water and non-perishable snacks, a first aid kit, a portable USB charger and a fully charged cell phone. To be prepared for inclement weather, include an ice scraper, a snow brush and small shovel. Hit the books: Encourage your child to learn about auto care by reviewing the Car Care Council’s online Car Care Guide and becoming familiar with the owner’s manual. The printed Car Care Guide fits easily in a glove compartment and covers the most common preventive maintenance occasions and procedures that should be performed to keep cars safe, dependable and efficient. Stay on schedule: To stay on top of routine vehicle maintenance, sign up for the council’s free Custom Service Schedule and receive email service reminders and recall notices so that you and your child are aware of any issues and can address them in a timely fashion. The Car Care Council has introduced a new video, produced in conjunction with AutoNetTV (ANTV), with tips for parents, college-bound students and their vehicles. To learn more about keeping your vehicle in safe, dependable working condition, visit www.carcare.org or follow the Car Care Council on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

Well-known companies in the United States and South Korea cooperate to develop lithium-metal batteries with twice the energy density and cycle life.By Erica Zhu Feilong Jiangli
Chongqing Feilong Jiangli collects the latest information for you, so that you can get the most cutting-edge technical information. A private company focused on developing the first rechargeable lithium-metal batteries in the United States announced that it would cooperate with SKI, Korea's largest energy and chemical company, to develop lithium-metal batteries.
This cooperation will focus on solid-state lithium anode laminates, which can double the energy density and cycle life of rechargeable batteries. The initial goal was to produce and test prototype batteries to prove whether the increase in volume and weight led to an increase in energy density and cycle life relative to existing lithium-ion batteries.
SK Innovation plans to complete the research on conductive glass separators by the end of 2021 and apply them to the development of lithium metal batteries. Conductive glass separator is the key technology to promote the stability of lithium metal batteries. The company hopes to successfully develop conductive glass separators to accelerate the commercialization of lithium-metal batteries.
A battery company based in Berkeley, California, USA, has invented and patented a technology to protect the electrodes of lithium-metal batteries, which is the core technology of sulfur-lithium batteries, lithium-air batteries and water-lithium batteries. Scientists at the battery company have invented a patented process that combines lithium metal with a continuous monolithic glass electrolyte. Battery validation in the laboratory indicates that continuous monolithic glass prevents dendrites and promotes lithium metal recycling.

China's shortcuts in automobile manufacturing industry
Over the past nine years, China has become the world's largest automobile market and producer, with annual production and sales exceeding 25 million vehicles. China's automotive industry has also been the world's largest automotive industry in just a few years, driven by the huge domestic demand of the Chinese market. But there is not a strong enough component system to support the development of China's automobile industry. In March this year, the 2017 Top 100 list of global auto parts suppliers was officially unveiled. Unsurprisingly, Germany's Bosch Group continued to rank first with more than $46 billion in revenue, while German gearbox supplier Zeiff rose to second. From the third to the tenth ranking of parts companies are Magna, electronics, mainland, Aixin, modern Mobius, Virginia, Lear.
In this ranking, China's highest ranking of parts companies is Yanfeng automotive interior system, followed by CITIC Deka ranked 71. And the selected parts enterprises are mainly single components. Feilong Jiangli supply water pumps for car plants.
In contrast, there is no comprehensive automobile parts supplier in China's automobile industry.
