Recall Redux: Fiat Chrysler Calls Back 600,000 Vehicles for Problems You’ve Already Heard About

Sudden stalls. Tailgates that open on their own. These issues formed the basis of two Fiat Chrysler recalls in 2018, and, one year later, history is repeating itself. On Friday, the automaker called back roughly 600,000 Chrysler Pacifica minivans and Ram pickups for the same ghost-in-the-machine phenomena that led to the earlier recalls.

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.

How to do great work

I've been frustrated lately with the quality and quantity of my work. I haven't produced as much here at Get Rich Slowly as I would like — due largely to Fincon and its aftermath (calls and meetings, calls and meetings) — and what work I have produced isn't as good as I would like. This lack of productivity makes me agitated, which makes me even less productive because I'm not in a good place mentally. It's a vicious circle. How nice, then, to rediscover the transcript of a 30-year-old talk from...
