NHTSA’s probe did not find any defects in the design or performance of the automatic emergency braking (AEB) or autopilot systems of the subject vehicles. In all instances, the systems performed as they were designed to. The NHTSA report concluded that: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, such as Tesla’s Autopilot, require the continual and full attention of the driver to monitor the traffic environment and be prepared to take action to avoid crashes. Automated Emergency Braking systems have been developed to aid in avoiding or mitigating rear-end collisions. The systems have limitations and may not always detect threats or provide warnings or automatic braking early enough to avoid collisions. Although perhaps not as specific as it could be, Tesla has provided information about system limitations in the owner’s manuals, user interface and associated warnings/alerts, as well as a driver monitoring system that is intended to aid the driver in remaining engaged in the driving task at all times.

Yes, your return will be done fast, but the price of speed could be a missed deduction or credit. If you aren't willing or able to spend extra time to learn all the tax rules and annual tax law changes, then consider consulting a Tax Pro, because no tax software package - regardless of price - has all the answers. Friends call me biased when I say, "everyone should know or use a tax professional to get their taxes done," but I truly believe they should. The Tax Hassle," as I like to call it, backs me up. Tax Hassle, in a nutshell, is the mind-boggling 74,000-plus pages or so of tax rules, new tax laws, correcting of errors/warnings in tax software, and fear of audit. There is so much to miss and one tiny mistake can cost you money and in some cases, cause you to be flagged for an audit. If you still insist upon doing it yourself, then consider using a professional occasionally, just to see if you are missing anything or doing something the wrong way.

The NHTSA highlighted Tesla's efforts to convey the limitations of the system and instructions in the owner's manual and elsewhere that drivers must keep hold of the steering wheel and be able to take control of the vehicle at any time when using Autosteer. Visual and audible warnings and disengagement of the Autosteer system for the remainder of a trip are some of the steps Tesla has taken to keep drivers engaged when Autopilot is activated, the report says. According to the report, Tesla took factors such as driver distraction into its development of Autopilot, and further updates have reinforced keeping hands on the wheel and being able to take over the vehicle. The NHTSA notes the fatal 2016 crash appeared to involve "a period of extended distraction (at least seven seconds)". Its reenactments found the driver should have been able to see the tractor trailer he collided with for at least that length of time before impact.

On their last days in office, U.S. President Barack Obama and other top officials used their final appearances to denounce Russia as a threat to the global international order and to urge continued Western support for Ukraine. This 11th-hour offensive signaled a belated recognition from Obama that he had underestimated the threat posed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. As he exits the White House, his final public statements show he has moved closer to the view of his defeated 2012 rival for the presidency, Mitt Romney, who called Russia “our number one geopolitical foe.” At the time, Obama belittled Romney’s view, but no more. These reassuring messages from the outgoing Democratic administation are welcomed in Ukraine, which has been fighting a Kremlin-instigated war for three years in the eastern Donbas and who’s Crimean peninsula continues to be occupied by Russia.

Exit Stage Left: Lights Go Out On Biden As He Talks Of USLeadershipIn Davos Speech It may have just been coincidence, or perhaps something more symbolic, but whatever it was, Joe Biden saw the lights go out on him as he mentioned USleadership” during his last major speech as vice president, in Davos, Switzerland. “ We are going to retain our position of leadership ,” Biden was telling the audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, when the lights on stage began to dim. Rendered a dark silhouette, and seemingly unimpressed, the outgoing vice president carried on talking about the West’s ideas and visions of the world. “ If we dont fight for our values, no one else will ,” he said from the darkness. Moments later the lights came back on, allowing Biden to proceed with his rather dark warnings to the world. Biden used his final major speech while in office to accuse Russia and President Vladimir Putin of “ purposefullyaiming to “ collapse the liberal international order .

The Stinger also sees the debut of Kia’s Driver Attention Alert system, which keeps tabs on your concentration levels by “ monitoring a number of inputs from the vehicle and driver ” and sounds a chime if it thinks you’re nodding off. And this comes in addition to “Vehicle Stability Management”, which keeps the car stable under braking, and “ Electronic Stability Control” to keep things under control around the corners. All the mod cons, in other words. Image 17 of 21 But that’s not all. You also get a heads-up display (HUD) for satnav instructions and other key driving info, such as blind-spot warnings and cruise control. In the centre console, there’s an inductive charging pad in the centre console along with USB and Bluetooth connectivity. No mention was made at the unveiling, however, of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. As for audio, the base Stinger comes with a six-speaker system coupled, interestingly, with a 7inhaptic touchscreen”, which gives the driver a subtle burst of feedback whenever an input is registered – a great idea that should help make the car's infotainment system easier to navigate.

Those professionals say the government is letting French sideline English in the bilingual country. Secession calls The strikers have been joined by other interests, some of whom are calling for the English-speaking regions to secede from Cameroon. The government says that is not an option. Mobile phone companies have not issued any official statement about the internet cutoff. But agents have told worried users that the government is threatening to withdraw their licenses should they not suspend internet services to these two regions. For now, no online money transfers and payments can be made. The government has not commented on the internet issue. The communications minister warned in November, though, that a blackout was a possibility if social media was used to disseminate what he called anti-government propaganda related to the strike. Official warnings Authorities have been sending out warnings this week via SMS, which Libom Li Likeng, Cameroon's minister of post and telecommunications, says are part of a civic education campaign.
