This Is All That Was Left Of The Crashed Self-Driving Tesla

A photo of the Tesla Model S involved in the fatal crash on May 7, 2016 shows with the top third of the car sheared off by the impact of the collision of the Tesla with a tractor-trailer truck on nearby highway and coming to rest in the yard of Robert and Chrissy VanKavelaar.

Tesla Drops On Report Of Another "Autopilot" Crash And Rollover

Dale Vukovich of the Pennslvania State Police, who responded to the crash, said Scaglione told him that he had activated the Autopilot feature. In his crash report Vukovich stated that Scaglione's car was traveling east, near mile marker 160, about 5 p.m. when it hit a guard rail "off the right side of the roadway. It than crossed over the eastbound lanes and hit the concrete median."

The Curse Of Socialist Highways - How Government Ruins July 4th Travel

Unfortunately the travel before and after the 4th of July is a different story, with it widely considered one of the worst travel days of the year. While the desire to take advantage of the holiday to enjoy friends and family is a natural product of humans being inherently social creatures, the degree to which this congestion leads to headache and misery rests solely with the institution responsible for them during the rest of the year – the government.

Driver Of Self-Driving Tesla Was Watching Harry Potter At Moment Of Death

Frank Baressi, 62, the driver of the truck and owner of Okemah Express LLC, said the Tesla driver was "playing Harry Potter on the TV screen" at the time of the crash and driving so quickly that "he went so fast through my trailer I didn't see him." "It was still playing when he died and snapped a telephone pole a quarter mile down the road," Baressi told The Associated Press in an interview from his home in Palm Harbor, Florida. He acknowledged he couldn't see the movie, only heard it.

Paul Singer: "Donald Trump Will Cause A Widespread Global Depression"

It was not unti today, one day after Trump revealed the full extent of his trade program, that Singer lashed out and revealed the full extent of his loathing for Trump. During a discussion at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, Singer told CNBC that "the most impactful of the economic policies that I recall him coming out for are these anti-trade policies," Singer said "And I think if he actually stuck to those policies and gets elected president, it's close to a guarantee of a global depression, widespread global depression."

Hillary Superpac Has Taken $200,000 In Banned Donations

These past few weeks have been quite interesting for Hillary Clinton. We learned that Clinton omitted one key email from the State Department, that Hillary's official State Department calendar is missing a lot of entries, and we were reminded that it can be quite lucrative to be a friend of Hillary. Now, courtesy of The Hill, we find that a super-PAC backing Clinton has accepted $200,000 in donations from a company holding multiple contracts with the federal government, despite a ban on such contributions. Said otherwise, the super-PAC is engaged in a pay-to-play deal.

Don't Count Out Donald Trump Yet

Trump experienced a horrible period from mid-May to mid-June, which culminated in the dismissal of campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Based on the mainstream media, Trump is finished. We’ve been incessantly bombarded with articles highlighting an ever widening lead for Hillary Clinton nationally in the polls. So is Trump finished? Not by a long shot.

Calls For Texas Independence Surge After Brexit Vote

The use of "Texit" exploded when the Brexit results were announced, as more than 5,800 people on Twitter used the phrase, a five-fold increase from the day before. 1,745 people tweeted about Texit between 7am - 8am London time, the hour when the final results were announced.

First The UK, Then Scotland... Then Texas?

That didn't take long. Only hours after the final results came in for a British exit from the EU, political leaders in Scotland are talking about renewing their drive to secede from the United Kingdom. While secession of American states is often dismissed as absurd, there are few reasons to believe that a state like Texas - to name just one example - could not immediately transition from state to nation-state. With a large economy, port cities, oil, and easy access to European, Latin American, and even Asian economies by sea, economics arguments against such a separation fall flat.

Trump Campaign Starts June With Only $1.3 Million In The Bank After Making Another $2.2 Million Loan

In another sign of rising troubles for his presidential campaign, on the same day that he fired his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowki, a report filed with the Federal Election Commission showed that Trump finished May with a "troublingly low" $1.3 million in the bank. Trump raised just $3.1 million for his campaign during the month that began with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus declaring Trump the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party.
