Tesla driver killed in Autopilot crash was speeding, report says

Joshua Brown, the Tesla driver who on May 7 died in a crash in Florida while the car’s Autopilot was engaged was speeding, according to a National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) preliminary report.

This revelation may not surprise many people. The Model S is often billed as one of the sturdiest cars ever built. Not only does it have a five-star crash safety rating, but also its structure is so strong that it broke some of the crash-testing gear in 2013.

So for the top of the car to be sheered off as it was in the fatal Florida crash (even considering that it had collided with a tractor trailer) suggested that the Model S must have been moving at fast speeds. (After colliding with the truck, Brown’s Model S continued down the road and eventually struck a power pole and split in half before coming to rest.) Read more…

Cory Booker is living proof that love trumps hate.

The New Jersey state senator delivered one of the many moving speeches at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night, earning accolades from his party and fans on Twitter but also the attention of the Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

As Booker’s speech started to gain traction online, Trump tweeted remarks about the Senator’s “future,” vaguely eluding that he might have some dirt on Booker.

Booker responded to the tweet on CNN (top video) simply by saying, “I love Donald Trump…I don’t want to answer hate with hate. I’m going to answer it with love.” Read more…

Attention night owls: Twitter is making it easier for you to use its app in the dark.

The company just updated its Android app and added a dark-themed mode for nighttime viewing. The feature should make late-night tweeting a little easier on your eyes. 

You can find the feature in the app’s main menu (under your profile icon or the hamburger icon) where you can easily switch it on or off. Once on, Night Mode switches the app to a darker color palette    that’s similar to to what Tweetbot and a few other third-party Twitter clients have had for some time. Read more…

Why a 23-year-old needs to start saving for retirement — and why it’s so hard

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f149603%2f5d51750ea73e427b8aec4f44005a6030

Congrats! You’re 23 years old and you have your first real job. 

On the downside, you now work long hours, wear uncomfortable shoes all day and can’t take naps. Even worse, your paychecks get divided pretty evenly between rent, food and student loan payments. 

Understandably, you haven’t bothered to start a retirement fund yet — you’re only 23! You have 39 years before you need to even start worrying about retirement, right?

Wrong. 

We spoke with Dan Egan, director of investing at Betterment, and Qapital founder and CEO George Friedman about why every young adult needs to be planning their financial future — and why it’s so difficult.  Read more…

The bloody veggie burger can finally be yours

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f157160%2fbf75b585225a4585b8fef392f66d5b3b

The Impossible Burger has all the elements of a good cheeseburger. It features a soft bun, fresh toppings, melted cheese and, of course, a browned-on-the-outside, pink-on-the-inside hamburger patty. It’s virtually indistinguishable from every other cheeseburger, save one key difference: A distinct lack of animal meat. 

Now this famously bloody veggie burger is coming to the mainstream for both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

Impossible Foods, the California company behind this meaty innovation, partnered with Chef David Chang to add the Impossible Burger to the menu at Manhattan’s Momofuku Nishi. Starting July 27, the restaurant will serve the “Nishi Style Impossible Burger” — with romaine, tomato, pickles, special sauce and a potato bun — during lunch and dinner for $12.00.   Read more…
