Google cars are fine as far as they go, but Ford still sees the need for a human driver

don’t ever take my stick shift away!!! (unless its replaced with teleportation!) #drivingisFUN

Ford Motor Company isn’t ready to take the human out of the driver’s seat quite yet.

Don Butler, executive director of the auto giant’s Connected Vehicle and Services group, says this is a basic difference between his company — which, after all has been in the car business for more than a century and thus has some accumulated knowledge — and Google.

“[company]Google[/company] looks at vehicles as being independently capable — with no controls for the driver, well, actually the passenger. From Ford’s perspective, we still have a driver-centric model. We think the driver needs to be engaged,” Butler told attendees of Structure Connect 2014 in San Francisco.

That is not to say [company]Ford[/company] is ignoring automation and advanced sensing technology. The company will keep adding technologies, including things like lane-keeping systems and blind-spot warning systems, as part of the automotive evolution. “We think the vehicle needs complete sensing capabilities…

LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner on how to recruit and keep “rock stars”

Nikohl Vandel:

head hunters are salivating!

Recruiting in the tech industry these days is a cutthroat endeavor. From bloated salaries to lavish perks, the best companies are trying everything to woo the most talented, coveted engineers to their team.

That’s not necessarily the best tactic, said Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, speaking at LinkedIn’s annual TalentConnect conference to an army of recruiters in attendance.

“[Recruiting] is not a sales process. To me, it’s about the fit,” Weiner said. “People become so focused on an outcome that they lose sight of why they’re having those conversations in the first place.”

That was the drumbeat of the conference, where LinkedIn showed a preview of an upcoming 2015 product. The company has figured out how to help recruiters find the most qualified candidates for the job, and now it aims to go one step further. Its new search function focuses on finding the candidates who are the best…

When The Governmental Script Becomes 2 Fictional

And, that is the problem.  That is always the problem.  The stories in individual heads, the plots and the scripts they keep writing and need to rewrite and adjust in order to make that last thing not a mistake, because “leaders” don’t make mistakes, at least it can’t appear as if they do, lest? lest what?  Mistakes are made.  Covering them up like they didn’t happen and creating reality based on not going back and fixing them is ……….. idk, i guess my nature is a bit more scientific than it is imaginative.

yet, maybe its just because i’m a mom and my daughter is always the shot of grounding back to bare bone facts, truth, needs and survival I need to never get too carried away being me while I play with the politicians who can craft an interesting scene with the authority they really seem to be taking for granted right now.

Or maybe its not that at all.  Maybe they just write scripts on the fly because a new one is paying my salary?  Or, maybe they don’t have a script of their own at all so they just stick with old fashioned scripts, “Disposable Women,” as we discovered is still being rewritten in the case in South Africa where killing your girlfriend only deserves, at most, 5 years behind bars.

New Jersey filez to bar parole of Politikal Prisoner Baba Sundiata Acoli

Nikohl Vandel:

huh? you know what? we’ve got to change the entire mind-set for how we begin to fill the positions for jobs like Parole Officers — mine had such a deviant mind, I can just imagine what its like in New Jersey!

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s parole board has filed in court to stop the release of a man convicted of killing a state trooper more than 40 years ago.

A two-member panel of the state parole board denied Sundiata Acoli’s parole in 2011, but an appeals court reversed the ruling last month and ordered Acoli released.

Acoli, then known as Clark Edward Squire, was convicted of the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster during a stop on the New Jersey Turnpike.

One of Squire’s accomplices was Joanne Chesimard, who also was convicted but escaped to Cuba and has been living under the name Assata Shakur.

In a court filing this week, the parole board asks for a delay of Acoli’s release while the full board reconsiders the decision.
