Not until the workers rule.

The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force. The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas; hence of the relationships which make the one class the ruling one, therefore, the ideas of its dominance. The individuals composing the ruling class possess among other things consciousness, and therefore think. Insofar, therefore, as they rule as a class and determine the extent and compass of an epoch, it is self-evident that they do this in its whole range, hence among other things rule also as thinkers, as producers of ideas, and regulate the production and distribution of the ideas of their age: thus their ideas are the ruling ideas of the epoch. For instance, in an age and in a country where royal power, aristocracy, and bourgeoisie are contending for mastery and where, therefore, mastery is shared, the doctrine of the separation of powers proves to be the dominant idea and is expressed as an “eternal law.”

5.38 hours per day

I doubt this figure; this is an absurd amount of TV to watch on a daily basis on average.
If you have a job, this figure pretty much means you spend all your free time on TV.
Is this just number the cumulative amount of hours of all TV's in an average family household turned on, or is this actually time spent watching TV by an average individual?

Tesla is in the process of increasing the capability of its radar to create a sparse point cloud, not entirely unlike lidar. This would give more detailed information about the direction of individual radar echoes, as well their speed relative to the car. This would seem to make crashes like the one mentioned here less likely.

I read that the truck was correctly identified in size and shape, but the case of a low-hanging sign (perhaps by damage) wasn't considered or was considered and rejected as too unlikely. But that the system incorrectly didn't recognize the hazard, while the sensors gathered enough information to identify the hazard. The height angle was correctly recorded, as was the distance. The numbers both were in the acceptable range for a sign, but also calculate a crash hazard. There will be a software update, not too far off, that will correct for this.

No, you don't get it. You don't get to define "autopilot". The autopilot system in an airplane, where the name came from, can't communiate, and doesn't read signs. So how would that be a requirement of an automobile "autopilot"?

It's more of a "tries keep the car in your lane" device.

And since "lane hold" and "lane keep" and other similar names are taken, why not call it something different? Like "autopilot" a system that'll fly you on course, even if that smashes you into another plane.

I had neglected those, but under policy at the time, they weren't "foreign" countries, but US administered countries, according to the Treaty of Paris. Most of the precedent set for Presidential acts of war without a war declared were in response to Vietnam, because it wasn't generally done before Eisenhower invaded and seized control of the Vietnam government (whose party later blamed Kennedy for "starting" the war).

Nope. In this case, they aren't looking at the design of the door, but the guy who pushed "close" while Harrison Ford was under it, and the lack of process to seal off a set while people are building/testing dangerous props. The guy who made the door isn't in trouble, at least as far as the news around this indicates.
