Another Disastrous Tesla Crash Proves Autopilot Software Should Be Banned

  • Autopilot has been engaged in at least three fatal crashes in the U.S. since 2016, casting serious doubt over the safety claims of the feature.
  • It’s really incredibly irresponsible of any journalists with integrity to write an article that would lead people to believe that autonomy is less safe.
  • The Tesla CEO, along with other company spokespersons, have repeatedly claimed that autopilot makes the cars 40% safer.
  • Consumer Reports even said that the feature is “far less competent that a human driver.” In fact, even the NHTSA said there’s no clear evidence for how safe the autopilot feature actually is.
  • Tesla cultists have defended the company by claiming that it has never encouraged drivers to take attention off the road.
  • Tesla repeatedly emphasizes that the drivers should keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.

I accidentally stumbled upon a gig playing Santa, and 17 years later here's what the role has taught me

  • I also learned very quickly that I had, at best, a very shallow understanding of many things pertaining to Santa Claus, the North Pole, and the Christmas spirit.
  • It turns out Christmas spirit, Santa Claus, and the North Pole are for adults at least as much — and perhaps even more — than they are for children.
  • I've learned that the Christmas Spirit transcends politics and religions — I've visited with thousands of non-Christians who love Santa Claus and Santa, of course, loves everyone.
  • It's a time when the Santa and Mrs. Claus awakens in each of us — we embody the spirit of generosity and put our love into action.
  • I'm honored to serve as a shield so you can give and express your love freely, in the name of Santa Claus, and spare the recipients of your gracious giving from the law of reciprocity.

As a financial adviser and coach I've helped about 50 different people with their money, and I saw too many make the same mistake

  • When discussing retirement goals and protection needs these clients were unsure of what their current lifestyle cost them, which made it very difficult to plan for the future.
  • It also made it difficult to understand what their cash flow situation is like, and how much extra money they had to put towards their future financial goals.
  • Future goals such as college planning for kids, retirement planning for themselves, or even just knowing how much money they would need to maintain a comfortable lifestyle in the unforeseen death of a partner.
  • These steps are important because if you show up to your financial adviser or coach's office and they tell you that you need however-much life insurance, or should be putting however-much towards retirement, but you don't have the cash flow to support either of those goals, then you'll need to go back to the basics.

Study finds 'strong link' between vaping and depression

  • A recent study concludes that people who smoke electronic cigarettes are twice as likely to report clinical depression as those who have never vaped.
  • Known as vaping, battery-powered e-cigarettes use heat to deliver an aerosol cocktail of nicotine and flavors to the user.
  • Now, a study published in JAMA Network Open finds a significant link between vaping and depression.
  • Although links between traditional cigarettes and depression primarily prompted the study, the results of an earlier study that indicated that 9.1% of those with depression were e-cigarette users, compared with 4.5% among the general population was also a factor.
  • The BRFSS is the largest national telephone survey carried out in the U.S. College students aged 18–25 showed the most significant link between e-cigarette use and depression.
  • The study also found that the link between e-cigarette use and depression was stronger in people who vaped the most often.
