Can A Simple Circle Of Salt Throw Off A Self-Driving Car? – TwistedSifter

At first it might have seemed as if self-driving cars were going to be an easy thing to make happen, but more than a few kinks are proving a bit hard to iron out. Now, artist James Bridle thinks we need to add “table salt” to the list. In 2017, he demonstrated how two rings of salt and an understanding of road markings could confuse a self-driving car to the point of totally shutting itself down. He called it Autonomous Trap 001, and created it by putting two rings of salt around the vehicle, one in broken strips and the other a block line – telling the care to go right and not to cross at the same time. Autonomous Trap 001 from stml on Vimeo. The experiment itself was not without challenges, according to Bridle. “I ran out of salt, and had to drive back to the nearest village to buy a few more kilos. Luckily, salt, unlike bandwidth and computational power, is a pretty cheap resource. Also, I should have pulled my trousers up for the video.” Nothing is perfect, I suppose. Elon Musk, who you may realize has some interest in self-driving vehicles, responded to the experiment

Cartoon: America's 'Zero' Strategy – Daily Kos

x Vimeo Video China’s “zero Covid” policy has sparked rare protests across the nation of nearly a billion and a half people. Which led me to think about our very own failed “zero” policy here in the United States. Zero corporate tax. To be fair, it’s not a policy per se, but is clearly an aspiration that has been achieved. Scores of huge corporations — which have been enjoying record profits — have paid nothing in federal income tax over the past few years. Never mind the bargain basement rates of 30% or even 15%, these multibillion dollar corporations are paying 0%, or even a negative rate (which of course translates to a refund). Fortunately, the Inflation Reduction Act put a minimum corporate tax of 15% into effect — although corporations are still trying to save earlier tax breaks. Meanwhile, the expanded child tax credit (which created the largest ever recorded drop in child poverty) was chopped and corporate profits continue to roll in. Maybe there is a parallel universe out there where corporations who have achieved their vast fortunes don’t do everything they can to avoid contributing to the society that gives them those vast fortunes? And speaking of

Bolivia Is Home To “The World's Largest Mirror” – Unofficial Networks

Breathtaking compilation of timelapse shots from Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia aka “The world’s largest mirror.” The salt flat is the remnants of a prehistoric lake that went dry leaving behind a 11,000 sqkm landscape of bright-white salt and rock formations. When it rains, a thin layer of water creates reflections that are nothing short of surreal. Bucket list thing to witness for sure. “Reflections from Uyuni is a Time-lapse short film that shows the intrinsic beauty of the sea salt of Uyuni and the province of Potosí in Bolivia. The reflections produced by the water flooding in the rainy season, are the main protagonist Enrique Pacheco´s camera, who invites us to dream with impossible images from another world, where the sky meets the earth forming an infinite mirage. The sea salt of Uyuni with over 10,000km2 is the largest in the world. It is located in the province of Potosi, Bolivia, near the Andes, at an altitude of 3.656m. The Salar of Uyuni serves as a transport route through the Altiplano of Bolivia, but tourism has an increasingly more important role in the area.”

How Mike White takes the NY Jets offense to NFL standards | Film

Mike White brings confidence and steadiness to the New York Jets offense “Everything needs to be evaluated. When you put up one hundred yards of offense, I don’t care how good New England is, and they are good, it’s unacceptable. That’s not NFL football. Everything is being talked about.” That’s what Robert Saleh said after the New York Jets‘ 10-3 loss to the New England Patriots, and he was right. Picking up 100 yards of offense, no matter who you are up against, is unacceptable in today’s game. There’s just too much speed in today’s game with rules that don’t punish it. With a defense that is championship caliber, the Jets had to reevaluate. And they did. Their conclusion: The team needed Mike White. White, a former fifth-round selection from the Dallas Cowboys, isn’t going to widen anyone’s eyes. Despite being listed at 6-foot-5, White is a skinny quarterback who doesn’t possess the strong arm nor the quick release desired with younger quarterbacks around the league. Nonetheless, White has other qualities that any excellent NFL quarterback must have: football IQ, pocket awareness, leadership, and confidence. One can also add the ability to vary his touch, to put something more tangible
