You want to talk about HRC's "super-predators" comment? Yeah, let's talk about that. I have a Black son. I hate that she made that comment, and I hate that she never even bothered to apologize for it. I found HRC, on a personal level, totally odious. I've said so to other Liberal friends (I do still consider myself a pretty ardent Liberal). And I voted for Sanders, and would have happily voted for him in the General Elections if I had a choice.
And it's also worth noting that HRC's super-predator comment was made 20 years ago. You can find odious things she's done from this decade
As for Bannon being racist or not
(Yes, that's his ex-wife talking, so obviously she's biased; and yes, that's Mother Jones, which is obviously biased. You'll be able to discount anyone who disagrees with you as obviously biased. Enjoy your bubble).
My Subaru Outback has a camera system that lets it automatically set distance to the next car ahead of it.
When there's too much sun for it to see, it disables itself, warns you loudly, and requires you to drive manually.
Strikes me as reasonably sane.
Netflix emailed you this weekend because two years ago, it raised prices and grandfathered you for a whopping two years, and those two years are finally over. I believe, in fact, that's literally what your email notice said.
It's worth noting, BTW, that Netflix didn't sponsor this study. Mostly because everyone at Netflix already knows how toxic ads would be to the brand.

Fun fact, BTW: That movie was filmed on the Netflix campus
(But I still have no idea who that guy is. Pretty sure he's not a regular Netflix employee)
In my neighborhood (south of San Francisco), I often find Uber drivers who have to commute 1+ hours to come work around here. If that's a sizable population, it means that if we can predict surge times better in advance, Uber might be able to tell them "next Thursday, you'll probably really want to be on the road because we predict surge pricing." Uber drivers already know that this is the case for either well-defined events ahead of time, or ad-hoc events in real-time, but if you have a long way to go before you can go on the clock, the latter situation doesn't much help you. "Great, it's surge pricing in SF right now, but by the time I get showered and dressed and get down there, it'll probably be gone."
In other words, while you can't actually manufacture new drivers, you can boost the driver supply if you can give at least some of them more advance notice that surge is coming.
