A TESLA IS NOT A SELF-DRIVING CARThe crash happened at 11:25 p.m. in the Carlton Woods subdivision near The Woodlands. The car burst into flames after hitting a tree near 18 Hammock Dunes Place.
Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman told KPRC 2 that the investigation showed “no one was driving” the fully-electric 2019 Tesla when the accident happened. There was a person in the passenger seat of the front of the car and in the rear passenger seat of the car.
How did it even get up to such a high speed as to violently rupture the battery on impact if no one was in the driver's seat?

Okay, so the caste system isn't inflexible. I see.No, I think it's the inflexible nature of the laws of karma, of which the caste system is a part. In Hinduism, karma is as fundamental to understanding the world as is the law of gravity -- it's fundamental to the way everything works as far as Hinduism is concerned (and it's also one of these things that the more I found out about it from inside the culture, the more I realised how much I didn't know about it, and how mistaken a lot of my preconceptions were).
No, karma is inflexible, and caste is part of karma, so it's inflexible, but no more so than every other aspect of your destiny.Okay, so the caste system isn't inflexible. I see.
So, tell me if I am reading this correctly, please? You are born, you have certain karma. This is irrefutable and inflexible? You can never advance through hard work or any other means. You MUST accept your lot in life?No, karma is inflexible, and caste is part of karma, so it's inflexible, but no more so than every other aspect of your destiny.
Caste is inflexible in Hinduism, but so is everything else that happens to you (because it's happened and you can't change that). The important thing is how you deal with the hand you're dealt.
You can't change your destiny, because it's either happened (you can't change who your parents were, or their material circumstances, or where and when you were born and so on) or it's happening or is going to happen (a pandemic breaks out, you live somewhere it's easy to get vaccinated or you don't , you catch Covid-19 or you don't).So, tell me if I am reading this correctly, please? You are born, you have certain karma. This is irrefutable and inflexible? You can never advance through hard work or any other means. You MUST accept your lot in life?
You are expected to make the best of it as you may, but with no promise of EVER evolving upward in status, respect, income and so on? You are supposed to be happy on the bottom?
Also the first presidential candidate with a female VP, NY Rep. Geraldine Ferraro.Former Vice President and U.S. Sen. Walter Mondale died on Monday in Minneapolis, a family spokesperson confirms to NPR. The Minnesota Democrat was 93 years old.
Mondale, who was known to his friends as "Fritz," endured a landslide loss when he challenged incumbent President Ronald Reagan in 1984. But his most lasting mark may be left on the vice presidency, an office with little stature until Mondale redefined it while serving as former President Jimmy Carter's influential number two.
That's certainly proved a useful word to describe something that Dawkins wasn't thinking of when he coined it, but not so useful for other purposes, at least not for people who've read much about language and communication published in the last 60 or so years.And inventing the word "meme".
Back in Kent, Ohio, local business owners ran an ad thanking the National Guard. Mail poured in to the mayor’s office, blaming “dirty hippies,” “longhairs” and “outside agitators” for the violence. Some Kent residents raised four fingers when they passed each other in the street, a silent signal that meant, “At least we got four of them.” Nixon issued a statement saying that the students’ actions had invited the tragedy. Privately, he called them “bums.” And a Gallup poll found that 58 percent of Americans blamed the students for their own deaths; only 11 percent blamed the National Guard.
Nate Cohn's NYT op-ed (published in Yahoo news...):Pushing the implausible claim that America faces symmetric threats to democracy today from conservatives and liberals, the New York Times' Nate Cohn on Monday uncorked a wildly misguided Both Sides foray that highlighted the anxious tradition of the Beltway media to position Republicans and Democrats as being equally at fault for today's political turmoil.
Instead of forcefully pointing out the conservative movement's dangerous and proud turn toward authoritarianism and paramilitary violence, Cohn tried to argue that what's happening with extreme polarization represents a move towards “political sectarianism," and that the right and left are now caught up in a ceaseless war featuring equal attacks from each side. At every turn, Cohn could only find examples of right-wing behavior that threatens our democracy, yet he insisted Both Sides were to blame.
