Meet the 2 women running new Amazon Fresh stores in Woodland Hills and Long Beach

Amazon Fresh grocery store managers Meyali Plascencia and Louisa Van like to say they lead by example. And they demonstrated as much. Masked and standing apart, the lively duo — both immigrants, mothers and college grads with previous management experience — have made health and safety a priority at their respective store locations.

The Perils (And Uneasy Promise) Of Artificial Intelligence

“Some glitches are mild, like an Alexa that randomly giggles (or wakes you in the middle of the night, as happened to one of us), or an iPhone that auto-corrects what was meant as ‘Happy Birthday, dear Theodore’ into ‘Happy Birthday, dead Theodore.
