A Delivery Driver Saved This Dog From Drowning

What would you do if you saw an animal in trouble? Hopefully, you’d be like delivery driver John Cassabria and jump to the rescue. The man saw a dog treading water in someone’s pool, and if it weren’t for his interference, the poor creature might not have survived.

What’s That Sound?

Cassabria’s heroics happened when he was on the clock. He was in Woburn, Massachusetts, delivering packages to people when a strange sound caught his attention. He had no idea what it was; he just knew it was something that he needed to check out. So, he followed the noise – which he described as “a siren raid mixed with howling” – and found himself outside someone’s yard. That’s when he realized what was making the sound.

A Hero At Work

On the other side of a fence was a pool, and inside it was a very panicked, very exhausted husky named Luka. The animal had accidentally fallen in the water while no-one was home and was very clearly struggling to survive. In that moment, Cassabria didn’t think; he simply acted. He hurried into the yard, dove into the water, and pulled the dog out. At the time, he had no idea if the animal was still alive, but thankfully, he was. That was only the case because of the delivery driver, though.

Endlessly Grateful

After his heroic act, Cassabria sat with the pooch for an hour and a half while he waited for animal control to show up. Fortunately, the officer was actually a neighbor, and so he knew who the dog’s owners were. Before long, they were filled in on what had happened, and they couldn’t thank the delivery driver enough for his actions. A dog sitter was supposed to be watching Luka, but they obviously hadn’t shown up before the husky got himself into trouble.

We don’t reckon Luka will be going for a swim again anytime soon.

Ford Announces a Multi-Billion Dollar Investment to Build a Futuristic EV Manufacturing Ecosystem in America

Ford recently announced a groundbreaking multi-billion dollar investment to build two new manufacturing plants in Tennessee and Kentucky. The total amount of the investment is $11.4 billion. According to the plan of the company, the two factories will manufacture the upcoming EV F-series pickup trucks and their batteries.

The Target

Ford’s $7 billion investment is already the largest ever manufacturing investment at one time by any automotive company in US history. The full investment supports the visionary company’s longer-term goal of creating a sustainable manufacturing ecosystem in America by next 2025. Backed by the Paris Climate Agreement approved science-based targets are in line, accelerating the manufacturing progress towards achieving much-needed carbon neutrality. Based on this goal, Ford confidently expects to transform 40%-50% of its global vehicle volume into fully electronic by next 2030.

The Vision

The Tennessee factory is going to be the largest ever manufacturing facility of Ford. It will also be the first new American vehicle assembly plant of the company in decades, after its iconic River Rouge EV Complex in Dearborn, Michigan. Together, the two factories will create over 11,000 job opportunities. According to Ford Executive Chair Bill Ford, this important investment is a transformative moment in the history of Ford, enabling the company to lead America’s transition to a new prosperous era of environment-friendly electronic vehicles with sustainable carbon-neutral manufacturing.

The Ford Blue Oval City

The Tennessee facility will be officially dubbed as the Ford Blue Oval City, bringing the futuristic vision of the electric vehicle manufacturing ecosystem into reality. Through this manufacturing pad, the company is set to reimagine the entire designing, developing, and recycling process of electric vehicles and their batteries. Planned to be built as a bigger assembly plant with smaller environmental impact, the 3600 acres sprawling campus of the Blue Oval City will cover nearly 6 square miles. The facility will encompass battery production, vehicle assembly, and a supplier park cohered in a vertically integrated system, minimizing the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process in a cost-efficient way.
