Porsche and Pascal Wehrlein nab stellar Formula E results in Mexico, lose out on minor rules infractions

Photo: Porsche Porsche doesn’t do things by half measure. When the company decides it is going to get into racing, that’s because it has decided to win that series, that championship, and that race. It will pull out all of the stops to make victories happen, no matter what. It may take a few years of development and spending and engagement in a series to find its feet, but it always does. Nowhere is that more true than in Formula E. Porsche joined the series in the 2019/20 season and had middli...

Porsche Bets It All In Monaco Formula E And Loses Big

While Porsche joined the Formula E series last season, the Monaco E-Prix was not on the calendar during the 2019-20 season, so Porsche's 99X Electric has never raced there. This was a new opportunity for the German team to learn another new track, and unfortunately lady luck was not on their side. After podium results in Rome and Valencia, Porsche netted zero points from the race in the principality. While Andre Lotterer managed to finish in 9th, he had a collision with another car on the final...

At Basis Set Ventures merging venture capital and software development yields a $165 million new fund

When Xuezhao Lan first formed Basis Set Ventures, the goal was to leverage technology to give venture capital investing super powers. From the earliest days, when Lan hired former TechCrunch reporter John Mannes, and then built out the team with the data scientist, Rachel Wong, former Upfront Ventures partner, Chang Xu, and former vice president of growth, Sheila Vashee, the focus was as much on technology products as it was on dollar investments and advisory services. Together with Niniane Wang...

Podcast #701: Why Are We Restless?

Most everyone has experienced restlessness from time to time. A feeling of wanting more, but being unsure of how to find it; of struggling with distraction, but being unsure of what to focus on; of striking out in various directions, but not feeling any more fulfilled. While we tend to think of restlessness as a very modern phenomenon, a French diplomat and philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville, observed the very same problems in America two centuries ago. And the roots of our restlessness go ba...

So Many Great Books

In the acknowledgments of A Habit Called Faith, Jen Pollock Michel writes, “This book was seeded by an inconspicuous Pascal reference in Kent Annan’s Slow Kingdom Coming. In the margin, I wrote, ‘Book idea?’ I tracked down the reference and tucked it away for several years.” Books are like that. A book references a second book written centuries before. The idea from that earlier book lays dormant. Eventually, it becomes its own book. The idea contained in a book is like a seed: one is enough ...

Can cats teach us the meaning of life?

In "Feline Philosophy," philosopher John Gray argues that self-awareness isn't the epitome of evolution—and it leads to suffering.Gray investigates Pascal, Spinoza, and Lao Tzu to understand why humans are so uncomfortable with themselves.

‘The Mandalorian’ Star Pedro Pascal Thinks He’ll be Part of Announced Spin-Off Shows

Pedro Pascal is the star of Disney+’s flagship show, The Mandalorian, so why should he not make a few appearances in the recently announced spin-off shows? That’s what Pascal expects at least, saying that he “has to be” a part of The Mandalorian spin-off shows Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic. Pascal is set to be on every screen this winter, not just as the star of the hit Disney+ show The Mandalorian, but as the villain in Wonder Woman 1984, which is directed by Patty Jenkins, who jus...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Review: A Startlingly Kind, Delightfully Cheesy Balm for the Horrors of 2020

With Wonder Woman, director Patty Jenkins went to war for the right to be a little cheesy. The 2017 superhero movie was decadent with sincerity, with an unabashed hope for humanity that made it a lone bright spot in the increasingly dour comic book movie landscape. With Wonder Woman 1984, the highly anticipated follow-up to Jenkins’ mega-hit, the filmmaker digs her heels even further into that promise of cheesy superhero goodness, to the point of it being a potential health hazard. But the cart...

Plus, Gal Gadot continues to shine ...

‘We Can Be Heroes’ First Look: Pedro Pascal, Christian Slater Are Superheroes in Robert Rodriguez’s New Netflix Movie

Robert Rodriguez can be Hollywood’s favorite family-friendly director…just for one day. Every few years or so, the Alita: Battle Angel director will deliver a new family movie out of nowhere — Spy Kids would become a minor phenomenon in 2001, spawning a four-film series and an animated reboot, and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl has gained a small but passionate following. Enough of a following that Rodriguez is returning to the world of Sharkboy and Lavagirl for a sequel — of sorts — w...
