GM’s Side Airbags Are Still Crashing the Party

In a perfect world, a vehicle’s airbags would only deploy in circumstances where the driver, in hindsight, applauds the life-saving buffer’s invention. Not included in that list of circumstances is a spinout, far removed from hard obstacles or other vehicles. One Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driver isn’t applauding General Motors after his car’s side curtain airbags […] The post GM’s Side Airbags Are Still Crashing the Party appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

China has a very Orwellian reason for banning typing "1984" on social media, while allowing people to read Nineteen Eighty-Four

Chinese internet users can't type the numbers "1984" into social media, but Chinese bookstores freely sell copies of Orwell's novels, including Nineteen Eighty-Four, as well as other books whose titles are banned on social media. In Nineteen Eighty-Four, the inner Party members are allowed to read the literature that is banned for consumption by proles and outer Party members, and the same is true in China: the Politburo treats books as the purview of intellectual elites, who are on the on...

But before we get lost in the intricacies of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), I'm taking this one early day in 2019 to look at the six tax stories that turned out t...

Screenshot from C-SPAN broadcast of the convening of the 116th Congress. Click image for full video. It's official. The 116th Congress is in session, with the Democrats retaking control of the House.

2019 World Juniors: Canada Shifts Focus to Switzerland

VANCOUVER — There were two songs stuck in the heads of Team Canada players when they woke up on Thursday morning. Their new goal song — Pitbull’s ‘Don’t Stop The Party’ — that blared no fewer than 15 times during Wednesday’s tournament-opening 14-0 demolition of Denmark. After each and every goal, then once more for good measure following the final buzzer. And their national anthem, O Canada, which played twice on Boxing Day to begin the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship. Once with lyrics prio...

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...

Texas v. U.S: Off the Wall and On the Wall in the Age of Trump

Judge Reed O'Connor's opinion in Texas v. U.S. has declared all of Obamacare unconstitutional based on (in my own view) pretty dicey legal grounds. Commentators are trashing it, predicting that the 5th Circuit will reverse it, and that it has absolutely no chance before the Supreme Court.I have seen this movie before. (In fact, I had a minor supporting role.)Assume that the commentators are right and the judge's arguments are not even close to being persuasive given existing legal precedents. Do...
