Nissan Ariya Debut Coming In July; CEO (Again) Promises to Right the Ship

I’m your man, Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida told shareholders at an annual meeting Monday, promising to take a pay cut while firming up the fiscal foundations of an automaker that was floundering even before the pandemic hit.

Prelude to a Preview: Cadillac Lyriq Continues Its Long March to Reality

“Lear-ick” or “lear-eek”? That’s the first question the Cadillac Lyriq brings to mind, the second being who, exactly, was behind the naming of this future electric crossover. Names matter, and if they don’t roll off the tongue easily, that’s a problem. At least for non-Italian brands… But this writer digresses. On Thursday, which proved quite […] The post Prelude to a Preview: Cadillac Lyriq Continues Its Long March to Reality appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Optimistic Originalism, the Sequencing Problem, and Chris Green on the Sense-Reference Distinction (Part III)

This is the third in a series of posts related to my article “Optimistic Originalism and the Reconstruction Amendments.”  This post discusses a central argument in the article advanced against theories of original public meaning (OPM), which I call the sequencing problem.  I will  illustrate this problem by focusing on an influential article by Chris Green, “Originalism and the Sense-Reference Distinction.”  I employ his article partly because this appears to be Chris Green week at Balkinizati...

Report: Tesla Eager to Get Started on Roadrunner

No, Tesla isn’t resurrecting an intermediate-sized Mopar muscle car. It’s something far less sexy than that. According to documents, Tesla aims to build a battery research and manufacturing facility, staffed 24/7, in the dreaded state of California. According to municipal documents seen by Reuters, the electric automaker wants to expand a fledgling battery-building operation in […] The post Report: Tesla Eager to Get Started on Roadrunner appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

‘Bum’s Rush’: Anne Hathaway, Bill Murray, and Robert Duvall to Star in Indie Buddy Movie

There’s no point in burying the lede here: Bill Murray (Osmosis Jones) is going to provide the voice of a dog in a new independent film called Bum’s Rush. It’s the first time Murray has lent his voice to a dog character since…well, since 2018’s Isle of Dogs. But this will be a live-action dog, so let the anticipation begin.

At least two Lakers have openly expressed concern about the league’s plan to restart: Avery Bradley and Dwight Howard. And just a day before players have to inform teams if they plan to sit out the NBA’s restart next month, at least one of their teammates isn’t sure that either player will come. On Tuesday, Danny Green said on his “Inside the Green Room” podcast that he had been in contact with both players in the past few weeks, and couldn’t say with certainty that they were going to play.

How to Get Started With Composting

Once upon a time, I figured composting was either for serious gardeners or “zero waste” type folks who spent a lot of time and energy on reducing their carbon footprint. As it turns out, though, composting doesn’t have to be a big, zeal-requiring commitment; you can, in fact, take it slow, experiment, and see if it’s something that works for your life and property, and the benefits extend to people and households of all types. It’s also a practice that fits with all budgets. While you ca...

Lyft Promises to Swap Exclusively to EVs by Bullying Everyone

It's about time, Aunt Jemima

When Quaker Oats announced Wednesday that it would be changing the packaging and name of its 131-year-old Aunt Jemima brand, my immediate response was: What took them so long? Original pancake mix with the most recent Aunt Jemima update, circa 1989. I’ve been unable to learn the name of the woman whose image is used in the current packaging; she may be a composite.   This is a brand name whose racist roots are only thinly covered by a modern mascot. It’s a troubled name that hurts far ...

'This is racial,' US protesters insist after hanging death of black man

For Shawna Green and many other residents of Palmdale, a city in California's Mojave Desert, there is no question that Robert Fuller's death was racially motivated. "In a word, this is a cover-up," said Green, 46, commenting about the 24-year-old black man who was found dead hanging from a tree on June 10. Authorities initially labeled Fuller's death a suicide, but then backtracked following an outcry from his family and civic leaders who demanded a full investigation and have sought an indepe...

Zoom U-turns on no e2e encryption for free users

In a major security U-turn, videoconferencing platform Zoom has said it will, after all, offer end-to-end encryption to all users — including those who do not pay to use its service. The caveat is that free users must provide certain “additional” pieces of information for verification purposes (such as a phone number where they can respond to a verification link) before being allowed to use e2e encryption — which Zoom says is a necessary check so it can “prevent and fight abuse” on its platfo...

How flags unite (and divide) us | Michael Green

Flags are one of the simplest yet most powerful pieces of design ever conceived. They can make us swell with pride, burn with hatred -- and even inspire people to die or kill in their name, says vexillologist Michael Green. Take a brief walk through history as Green explores the symbolic fervor behind flags that unify and divide, inviting us to imagine a future where we can come together under one collective identity: humanity.
