I spent about 10 min researching the CA DMV web site looking for this. Perhaps 10 min isn't enough but would you mind providing a citation. This is the closest I've been able to find... https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/...
Specifically, I'm looking for information on the "reasonable speed which is defined as 85 percentile of all the cars on the road" part. I see a reference to "reasonable speed but my own interpretation of this doesn't agree with your assessment.
> someone has to make the leap and the risk, even a few deaths, is worth the reward. US society is not technologically progressive enough to allow for this in the next few decades so capitalism provides. Uber is as good as anyone to bear the brunt of the risks (and inevitable lawsuits).
Go ahead then, you offer up your life first and we'll all reap the rewards. Moron.
Sorry, here are the actual numbers:
2016 - Trump: 60,071,650 (47.5%) Still counting with approximately 9.5 million untabulated votes remaining
2012 - Romney: 60,933,504 (47.2%)
2008 - McCain: 59,948,323 (45.7%)
2004 - Bush: 62,040,610 (50.7%)
2000 - Bush: 50,456,002 (47.9%)
Most of your point remains. The media couldn't possibly have been more in the tank for Sec Clinton.
All of the test subjects were instructed to pretend to be part of various classes of society. How is pretending to be rich, poor or middle class while walking down a street supposed to discover how people that are actually rich, poor or otherwise truly behave? Everyone has preconceived notions of how people in other classes behave. If you think that rich people walk with a swagger, you're going to walk with a swagger when instructed to pretend to be rich.
I get that the researchers were attempting to isolate behavioral changes based on differences in environmental circumstances but I would have been more impressed if they had actually recruited real wealthy people to put on the glasses and do the walk. Seems to me that by not doing that, they artificially influenced the actual test subjects by allowing for those subjects to exercise their own bias.
[...]We have always told the drug companies that we would not pressure them and create a slippery slope where prices they negotiate with us for poor countries would inevitably lead to similar prices in rich countries.
[...] If we do try to do something in this area, we suggest that we approach the innovator companies that can currently sell products in the US with the idea of making donations to help clear the ADAP lists. For a variety of reasons, the companies will likely favor a donation approach rather than one that erodes prices across the board.
[...] I would guess that they would also likely favor a solution that involved their drugs rather than an approach that allowed generic drugs from India to flood the US market at low prices or one that set a precedent of waiving patent laws on drugs.
There is no level where hate speech does NOT fall firmly OUTSIDE the harm principle - so literally the most libertarian interpretation of freedom short of "might makes right" is perfectly compatible with anti-hate-speech laws. It's founders wouldn't have said so - but they didn't have access to the knowledge we now do. A philosophy that is not willing to update based on new scientific knowledge is not a philosophy - it's a dangerous cult.
How about this... I support and defend your right to call me anything you damn well please. Full Stop
Can you match that?
Technically, I use in car navigation but only through Android Auto. The native navigation works reasonably well and does have real-time traffic as long as I'm willing to pay for the built-in data link. However, the interface for its use is woefully inadequate and thus dangerous to use unless I'm at a full stop. As a Systems Engineer, I'm of course technically savvy but I am getting a little older and I have to wear glasses now. This leads me to what might be an overabundance of caution regarding fiddling with my gadgets and "infotainment" system while I'm driving. Thus, Android Auto and voice recognition comes to my rescue.
One day perhaps, in-car device developers and engineers will hire UI experts before the design process starts but I'll not hold my breath.
I don't know which ones are worse, the ones that think they're entitled to a "retirement" or the ones who don't have the good grace to die off and make some room for youngsters in the labor force.
So I suppose it's safe to say that when it comes time for you to shuffle off your mortal coil, you'll slip yours without complaint and make your passing as convenient as possible for the kids.
That being the case, why not save them a few thousands of bucks and take care of that little detail now?
