Your next tire change could be performed by a robot

Waiting in a service station waiting room purgatory one day, Victor Darolfi had a simple thought. “I sat at America’s Tires for three hours and thought, hey, we use robots to put tires on at the factory,” the founder explains. “Why don’t we bring robots into the service industry?” The notion was the first seed behind RoboTire, the Bay Area-based robotics company, which the former Spark Robotics CEO founded in October 2018. Now ready to come out of stealth as part of the latest batch of Y Comb...

Sacramento’s absurd crusade against cashless businesses

It didn’t feel as though I was participating in systemic discrimination as I ate a piece of pizza earlier this week in downtown Los Angeles. In fact, everything I was doing — from chewing to sitting to drinking a soda — felt normal. But according to a Sacramento lawmaker and chronically discontented progressives, being a patron of a cashless business — like the one at which I was eating — is discriminatory. Even “shameful,” as one completely irrational person tweeted. Who knew a piece of pizza c...

How a Lakers coaching staff of strangers blended to lead the West’s top team

CHICAGO — The Lakers might not be where they are today if not for a very crucial task that helps keep them humming. It’s an area that falls under the expertise of assistant coach Mike Penberthy, who once won a title with the Shaq-and-Kobe-era Lakers. When coaching staff meetings invariably bog down with the minutiae of game planning, he’s often the one who makes the decision to shake things up. “I’ll be like, ‘You know what, I think we need some donuts today,’” he said. “I’ll grab one of the you...

This Could Be The Berkeley Public Library’s Most Treasured Collection

“The Berkeley Tool Lending Library is one of the Bay Area’s great public gifts, a free-to-use service for Berkeley residents looking for anything from saws to ladders to a hard-to-find screwdriver. You’d think a repository of free tools, some very expensive, would disappear frequently, but supervising librarian Dan Beringhele says theft is rare. It’s just that beloved.” – San Francisco Chronicle
