Posted in: Hamilton, Leclerc disqualified from U.S. Grand Prix after inspection: FIA See in context

I really enjoyed the race. It's just amazing that the professionalism showed by the drivers racing under the rules to handicap their abilities aren't respected by the Stewards or F1. I didn't read anything about whether the race course was in compliance as not to create unfavorable race conditions for these entrants. How can one even measure this issue during the event and what is the safety significance to the driver(s) when this occurs? One cannot enjoy these races because the win will be eternally subject to the arcane...

Posted in: What to stream this week: The Rolling Stones, John le Carré, 'Living for the Dead' and Harry Bosch See in context

Harry Bosch on "FreeVee" is Amazon's monetization and cannibalism of it's own Prime Membership. It's dragging down its tens of millions of customers with its executives failures to maintain their shrimp cocktail lifestyles into an economic abyss of abuse of their own paid membership. Putting ads and a watermark on such a great "Prime Created" series is pure economic hubris. They call themselves a retailer but you can't purchase the unadulterated version of the series. Someday these digital green bar intellectuals will have to face the world they've made and will pay dearly in spirit...

Unimaginative and sad... Paying extra for crap nobody watches and jumping on the "everyone else is doing it" philosophy is far from adding value to the customer experience. Amazon needs to find executives that won't suck the future out of it's customers, workers and the business.

Posted in: Amazon unveils 'smarter and more conversational' Alexa See in context

Alexa can be a real pain. Currently it lowers the device volume so you cannot hear an answer. It's genes answers, results or information willy nilly. My favorite is when I say "Wrong Answer." Alexa replies that no phone is connected to the device. At times it goes off on it's on tangents and rarely allows for a long sentence before it comes up with the wrong answers. The is especially true on Feedback Statements. With the current state of customer harvesting and monetization, I can't wait for this next round of grievances to be thrust into my lexicon of "All things Alexa."

Posted in: Fukushima residents react cautiously after start of treated water release See in context

Not the brightest moment for Japan, but maybe one of the laziest. Pumping the water offshore is just wrong. They should have purchased a ghost tanker, cleaned it up, retrofit it, filled it up, towed it out to their territorial limits and sunk it. Then it would have become much more diluted and more so over a greater span of time. And there's always the Godzilla factor with this method too...

They just shuttered their latest movie "Crater" for tax reasons. I wonder if they archived that movie's props and gave it a special quickest non-release to write off category. They should AI Walt D. and run the company that way rather than by the rules of the IRS... Very sad.

The preservation of Japan's air, sea and land rights are imperative to any island nation. To defend those rights are constitutionally valid. Japan needs to deny North Korea access to any air space.no matter what the altitude just as it would deny them access to her sea space no matter what the depths. Japan is not a doormat for murderous tyrannies...

Seriously, programming for one perfect landing??? Landers have crashed everywhere, all over our solar system, again and again. It was traveling approximately, according to the article, at over 200 mph. That's the landing approach speed of a Boeing passenger jet. What's the rush? Maybe it should have been 15 mph so the "software" wouldn't stay confused and have time to make a course correct and go on to a secondary landing site. All this is not rocket science but just good judgement...

NHTSA has been and still is playing Russian roulette with these Twists air bags. The are still millions in use and no incentive by the car companies to even think about replacing them, let alone deactivating them. They are simply waiting for attrition to lower their numbers and hoping the air bags that do deploy are not defective... At least the Germans know the true value of safety.

Posted in: Wildfires in Anchorage? Climate change sparks disaster fears See in context

Having been born in Anchorage, this article makes as much sense as a best guess. When my Mom and I vacationed there 20 years ago we stopped in at the Visitors Center to pick up brochures on the area so my Mom would get better references from the ground because she and my Dad flew everywhere since there were no roads in the late forties and early fifties. While in the Visitors Center they were explaining how these extensive parks were there for the people to enjoy created by the city. My Mom was amazed that no one knew why the land was cleared to begin with or why the had a perimeter shape. These were enormous fires-blocks so the wooden city wouldn't burn down to the ground. She went on and on. It was amazing. Our family left Anchorage in the mid fifties, the week the city voted to pave their main street. It's going to be a daunting task to reduce the available fuel but if they don't then they'll only have to look to California to see their future fires...
