California To Ban Sale Of Gasoline-Powered Vehicles, Newsom Says

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will ban the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger cars and trucks in 15 years, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday, establishing a timeline in the nation’s most populous state that could force U.S. automakers to shift their zero-emission efforts into overdrive. The plan won’t stop people from owning gas-powered cars or selling them on the used car market. But in 2035 it would end the sale of all new such vehicles in the state of nearly 40 million people t...

Biden campaign releases a flurry of digital DIY projects and virtual banners. Yes, there are Zoom backgrounds

2020 is a nightmare year by most metrics, and it’s also a worst-case-scenario emerging out of a best-case-scenario for Joe Biden . After trailing in early primary states, Biden came crashing back on a stunning wave of Super Tuesday support. Now the presumptive Democratic nominee in the midst of a global health crisis that’s immobilized the U.S. workforce and somehow even further polarized American politics, the former Vice President will have to navigate completely uncharted waters to find a p...

The Baggies scored in the 94th minute to seal a 2-2 draw, which cause Bilic to explode on the touchline. He threw a microphone on the floor, and he was sent off for his bad behaviour. But, several days after th...

Perfect; could be better

When we run a new session of the altMBA, we ask each student to write a short bio and submit a picture. A week later, we share the nicely laid out PDF with the extraordinary class that has been assembled and then give people a week to update their bio for mistakes, etc. Inevitably, the bios (and the photos) get better.

The internet ad industry thinks the term 'second-screening' should be replaced with 'switch-screening' because TV is no longer dominant

Can you remember the last time you watched TV without snatching your phone out of your pocket to send an email, or just to scroll aimlessly through your newsfeed? A report from the UK's Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) suggests the idea that the TV is the center-piece of the living room is now out of date. Smartphones and tablets are beginning to take over the TV's dominant position, the IAB asserts. While 50% of UK adults say that the traditional TV set is the focal point of their living room,...
