Electric Vehicles: The Market and Its Future Workforce Needs

New emissions regulations and advances in technology have led to the emergence of hybrid and electric vehicles. There are three classifications of electric vehicles: hybrid-electric vehicles (HEV), which have a smaller combustion engine that is supplemented by the energy stored in the battery; plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), which have an electric motor in addition to an internal combustion engine; and all-electric
vehicles (EV), which have only an electric motor. Plug-in electric vehicle refers to both PHEVs and EVs.

While most individuals understand that HEVs and PEVs are more beneficial to the environment from the reduced consumption of fossil fuel and little to no emissions, widespread adoption has been slow in coming due to several negative perceptions held by potential customers. Successful wide-spread adoption depends upon effectively addressing each concern.

Pacific Standard Time: Art In L.A. 1945-1980

Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, an initiative of the Getty with cultural organizations across Southern California, was a series of exhibitions featuring works of art and architecture created in Los Angeles during the postwar period. Over 60 cultural institutions and more than 70 galleries in Southern California held a variety of exhibitions over a six-month period covering a range of media and periods in a collaborative effort to document and share the birth of the art scene in Los Angeles.

The extensive nature of the exhibitions, participation and attendance contributed to the local and regional economy through the expenditures of both exhibitors and visitors. An estimated 1.8 million visitors participated at exhibitions across the region. The majority of these attendees originated from Southern
California, but visitors came from around the world.
