Self-Driving Lingo Got You Confused? Here’s What It Means For You

Tesla shuttleAutonomous electric vehicles are great, but level 1 autonomous driving is yesterday’s reheated spaghetti, while level 5 is the Holy Grail. The problem is that if you were to say this to someone or write it as I just did, most people out there would have no idea what you’re talking about. So, how about a step back. Let’s take a glimpse at the bigger picture. Let’s start with a definition of the levels of autonomous driving that cars can offer

Paris Taxi Driver Threatened To Kill Passenger Because He Was an Israeli Jew

An Israeli tourist visiting his brother in Paris has claimed that a taxi driver in the French capital threatened to slit his throat after realising that he was a Jew from Israel during the journey. Israeli Ronen Edri told his story on a programme from Television production company Keshet earlier this week saying that it had been one of the most terrifying moments of his life, Israeli newspaper Maariv reports. “I grabbed a taxi going to visit my brother in Paris, asking the driver to take me down to the address,” Edri said and after he asked the driver to turn down the radio in the vehicle the driver said, “Who are you? What do you think you are? You do not live here, you have no rights here, you are not even the owner of this vehicle.” He said the driver cursed at him in French and said, “I’ll show you what Muslims do to people like you.” Edri told the taxi driver to stop or he would not pay him the cab fare. Soon afterwards, the taxi driver rang up a friend on his mobile phone. “He picked up the phone and I heard a phone call in French, I understood that the

Zuckerberg: ‘I Would Love to See’ Regulations on Facebook Ad Transparency – ‘Not Sure We Shouldn’t Be Regulated’

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg said the company is handing over information on Russia-linked political advertising to congressional investigators, after agreeing to give the data to a special prosecutor
During an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “AC360,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that he isn’t sure that Facebook shouldn’t be regulated and that he would “love to see” regulations on ad transparency. CNN Senior Technology Correspondent Laurie Segall asked, “Given the stakes here, why shouldn’t Facebook be regulated? Zuckerberg answered, “I actually am not sure we shouldn’t be regulated. You know, I think in general, technology is an increasingly important trend in the world, and I actually think the question is more, what is the right regulation, rather than yes or no, should it be regulated?” Segall then asked what the right regulation would be. Zuckerberg responded, “Well, there are some basic things and I think that there are some big intellectual debates. On the basic side, there are things like ads transparency regulation that I would love to see, right? If you look at how much regulation there is around advertising on TV, in print, you know, it’s just not clear why there should be less on the Internet, right? You should have the same level of transparency required. And I don’t know if a bill is going to pass. … But we’re committed and we’ve

Mark Levin on ‘Secret Empire’ Mitch McConnell Allegations: ‘Stunning,’ ‘Disgusting’ — ‘Should Be Removed’ from Office

Mark Levin at CPAC on Feb. 24, 2018
Wednesday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to removed from his leadership post and investigated. Levin said allegations revealed in a piece by The New York Post’s Larry Getlen that came from Breitbart editor-at-large Peter Schweizer’s book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends,” warranted an investigation. Schweizer’s book detailed how McConnell and his wife Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao catered to China, which allowed McConnell and Chao to profit. That according to Levin was “stunning,” and “shocking and disgusting.” “Mitch McConnell should be removed for all the reasons I’ve said before, but especially now, as majority leader,” Levin said. “And there ought to be an ethics investigation looking into his background. And I am damn serious about it.” (h/t Conservative Review) Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

CNN’s Sellers: ‘White Evangelical Men’ Still Supporting Trump Exposing the ‘Cowardice of Our Country’

Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” network political commentator Bakari Sellers said “white evangelical men” who still support President Donald Trump despite several recent developments in lawsuits of women who claim both extramarital affairs and sexual misconduct was the “cowardice of our country showing through.” Sellers said, “The first thing is—I think that we’ve gotten to the point where we have delegitimized and caricatured these women in treating them as something other than women. They’re referred to as a porn star, or a reality TV show host, or a Playboy bunny, when they are literally women in this country. They are mothers, sisters, daughters, and I think that’s important to recognize first.” He added, “The second thing is, and I do this quite often when it comes to the Trump administration—I sit here in South Carolina, the bastion of evangelicalism and Christianity, and all these voters, they just turn a blind eye to Donald Trump and his behavior. It amazes me that white evangelicals, specifically white male evangelicals in the South, seem to not care. Like, they have the the courage to stand up against Barack Obama wearing a tan suit or him wanting dijon mustard, but let Barack Obama run around,
