Pac-12 football preview: Hot seat ratings for the head coaches

This should be a fairly normal season for Pac-12 football, with fans in the stands, cash in the coffers and a handful of coaches operating under significant pressure. In the case of two, it’s pressure to win. For another, it’s pressure to avoid NCAA sanctions. For a fourth, it’s pressure to get vaccinated. By our estimate, there could be as many as four coaching changes at the end of the season — and that figure doesn’t account for other coaches leaving on their own volition. Here we go … Arizon...

Drew McConaughy was having lunch outside Tuesday at his home on Fourmile Canyon Road when he and his neighbors heard a crashing sound.

“Wildfires are occurring with increasing frequency and severity each year, and each year their impacts on people become clearer. However very little is understood about how wildfires affect mental health.” – from a UCLA-led research report released this week. They moved into Charley’s old place on my cul- de-sac a few months before the Woolsey fire in 2018 – a nice, middle-aged couple with a young daughter who played with all the kids in the neighborhood. They moved out this past March. They did...

"Think of Pearl Street in Boulder, with its winding paths, large trees, public art, live music and abundant outdoor cafes."

"That’s the kind of exciting destination that could help bring back [Madison's] State Street — and go beyond what it has been. Instead of a river of concrete for buses to rumble down, State Street could be a walkable park for people, who would be prioritized over vehicles. The mayor last week brushed off support among Downtown business owners for taking buses off State Street, calling them desperate and willing to try anything. That might be true, given how devastating the pandemic, weak econom...

Last-mile, landscaping and leaping robots

I spoke to Refraction AI co-founder/CTO Matthew Johnson-Roberson on the occasion of the Michigan startup’s $4.2 million seed raise. This week we posted a Q&A where he answers a wider range of topics about the delivery robotics company, and this bit jumped out at me: It still boggles my mind that nobody has tried to copy what we’re doing. There were 10 or 12 sidewalk robot companies in early 2015, 2016 and 2017. Many of them, with a few exceptions, went out of business. Image Credits: Refraction...
