Florida establishes a legal framework for self-driving vehicles

Law and Order BusinessTelegraph

It’s official: Florida state law no longer mandates that companies testing driverless cars on public roads retain a human safety driver behind the wheel.
' It’s official: Florida state law no longer mandates that companies testing driverless cars on public roads retain a human safety driver behind the wheel.On Thursday, Florida governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill that establishes a legal framework for autonomous cars — one that places the onus on companies to ensure their technology stacks aren’t unduly likely to cause accidents.Florida is the third state to allow people-free cars, following on the heels of Michigan and Texas.One startup already testing such vehicles in the state — San Francisco-based Starsky Robotics — expects to deploy a fleet of 25 autonomous trucks by the end of 2020.Earlier this year, Starsky completed tests on a closed-off rural road near Lake Okeechobee in February 2018, and it’s currently operating three driverless vehicles on Flordia freeways. “With this bill, Florida officially has an open-door policy to autonomous vehicle companies and I encourage them to relocate from California to Florida,” DeSantis said before signing the legislation at a state-run self-driving vehicle test track in Auburndale. “This helps chart a course to a bolder, brighter and smarter future in transportation and embraces the innovation revolution that will bring high-paying jobs to the state while making our roads safer.” Starting July 1, tech companies and automakers testing cars in Florida must build in visible and audible systems that alert human operators to critical systems failures, and they must devise safeguards for cars without  motorists in control that enable the cars to achieve a “minimal risk condition” — i.e., pull over and activate hazard lights.Meanwhile, driverless vehicle owners are required to report crashes to law enforcement immediately, or to implement in-vehicle mechanisms that automatically report them or allow passengers to report them.Incidentally, drivers inside autonomous cars are exempt from Florida’s ban on using cellphones and other wireless communication devices behind the wheel.However, they’ll have to meet the minimum insurance policy requirements outlined by the state: $300,000 in combined bodily liability and property damage coverage for trucks with a gross vehicle weight of 44,000 pounds or more (and lesser amounts for lighter vehicles), or at least $1 million for death, bodily injury, and property damage coverage for vehicles used for on-demand taxi networks Companies will be allowed to deploy their cars with no state inspection or certification.To date, 29 states have passed laws related to autonomous vehicles, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin, in addition to Washington, D.C.Last March, President Donald Trump signed into law a $1.3 trillion spending bill that earmarks $100 million for projects that “test the feasibility and safety” of autonomous cars.And in October 2018, the Department of Transportation (DOT), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, issued the third iteration of its voluntary guidelines on the development and safe deployment of driverless car technology: Automated Vehicles 3.0 . In it, regulators posit new safety standards “to accommodate automated vehicle technologies and the possibility of setting exceptions to certain standards … that are relevant only when human drivers are present.” In a talk at Uber’s Elevate Summit in Washington, D.C., this week, U.S.DOT Secretary Elaine Chao revealed that over 80 companies are currently testing more than 1,400 self-driving cars, trucks, and other vehicles across 36 U.S. states.California, one of the first states to permit autonomous vehicle testing on public roads, has 62 companies registered to perform testing, while Pittsburgh has five.

' Sheridan Smith, 37, suffers with anxiety, and the actress has spoken about her battles with the condition in the past.Speaking to the Radio Times ahead of Cleaning Up airing on TV, she spoke about her anxiety soaring during her appearance on the stage in Funny Girl in 2016.The actress said: “My anxiety levels started getting a lot higher; it was that fear of failing, I guess. “It came out of nowhere and got gradually worse and worse and came to a head. “And Dad dying.It wasn’t that I chose to take the time off, but you know, it was better that I had time with him.No one’s as good as your dad, are they? “He used to say, ‘No one’s good enough to take you up the aisle, I’ll take you up the red carpet!’ Every event, he was my date.Since he passed away I don’t go to many things any more.” Sheridan has also spoken about taking anxiety medication during an appearance on Lorraine in November 2018.She explained: “The anxiety was starting to get out of control, and I was having lots of different diagnoses, and you’re going on different medications. “The side effects meant I was putting on weight, so it was a really tough time.I’ve finally decided to explain it.Not a lot of people talk about mental health, but it is getting better.However, Sheridan has said she is “really happy” now, and credits country living for helping her.Appearing on This Morning earlier this year, she said: “I’ve got four donkeys, seven dogs, I’m a country girl now, I’ve got farmer boots and everything, I’m really happy… “I feel like I’ve got that normality and sanity I can come to work.I go back and I sit with the dogs and the donkeys and if you’re having a bad day they don’t judge you. “I feel like I’m finally taking charge,. Otherwise you just wallow in your own self-pity.I’m like ‘Come one.Let’s get moving now.Let’s get forward.Let’s get strong.’” Sheridan appeared on stage today to sing at the D-Day commemorations in Portsmouth, in a performance which was praised by BBC viewers.What are the signs and symptoms of anxiety?The NHS lists five symptoms to look out for: feeling constantly “on edge” If you, or someone you know, shows these signs, talk to a GP for advice on managing the condition.

Japan’s Crypto Traders May Face Closer Scrutiny Over Tax Avoidance

' Japanese tax authorities are planning to take action on the under-reporting of cryptocurrency-based profits.According to a report by The Asahi Shimbun on Wednesday, the newspaper’s sources have said that larger cryptocurrency transactions could be tracked in an effort to identify trades that are not being declared for tax purposes.The potential move has been prompted by the finding that some 50 traders and 30 firms in Japan had not declared cryptocurrency income worth over 10 billion yen ($92.3 million) over the last few years, the sources said.The level of tax under-reporting is likely due to the high rate at which crypto earnings are taxed.Classified as “miscellaneous income,” crypto gains are taxed at up to 55 percent.By comparison, earnings from trading stocks are taxed at 20 percent.According to the report, an investigative team at the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau asked some cryptocurrency exchanges to submit clients’ transaction data in 2018, allowing it to build a list of accounts that made sizable earnings That, along with data collected by other regional tax offices around Japan, suggested to authorities that traders with around 7 billion yen ($9.26 million) of such income had attempted to conceal it for tax purposes.As such, Asahi Shimbun says the tax authorities may file criminal complaints over tax evasion against traders who hid larger incomes or employed illicit means to do so.Yen and bitcoin image via Shutterstock READ SOURCE .

US private sector hiring grinds to near-halt in May

Event BusinessTelegraph

The US labour market unexpectedly ground to a near-halt in May, as data showed the private sector had added the fewest jobs in more than nine years.Non-farm private employers added just 27,000 jobs last month, according to a report from payroll
' The US labour market unexpectedly ground to a near-halt in May, as data showed the private sector had added the fewest jobs in more than nine years.Non-farm private employers added just 27,000 jobs last month, according to a report from payroll processor ADP on Wednesday.The figure, which followed a strong April, badly missed expectations for a gain of 185,000 and marks the weakest monthly gain since March 2010. “Job growth is moderating.Labour shortages are impeding job growth, particularly at small companies, and lay-offs at brick-and-mortar retailers are hurting,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics.Goods-producing industries shed 43,000 jobs, with the bulk of this — 36,000 — coming from construction, while the service sector added 71,000.The labour market has been one of the consistent bright spots for the US economy, which has seen a mixed batch of data in recent weeks.The data are likely to cast a pall over Friday’s closely watched monthly jobs report from the US labour department.Economists are predicting the US to have added 183,000 jobs in May, compared to an increase of 263,000 in April. “In general, while ADP has an inconsistent record of accuracy versus the initially-published government data, it often provides a useful guideline to the official report,” said Joshua Shapiro, chief US economist at MFR. “The ADP results will no doubt cause many analysts to shave their estimates.” A slowdown of the labour market could also heighten pressure on the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates this year.Federal funds futures data suggests the odds of at least three quarter-point reductions in the Fed’s benchmark rate this year are now around 63 per cent, from 53 per cent on Tuesday.Just a month ago, the implied probability of such a scenario was effectively nil.The two-year Treasury note yield, which is seen as particularly sensitive to expectations for monetary policy, tumbled 8 basis points (0.08 percentage points) to a low of 1.793 per cent after the data came out.The fall brings the yield to its lowest level since 2017, more than offsetting a rise in the previous session.Further down the curve, the 10-year yield fell 3.8 bps to 2.08 per cent.Yields fall when prices rise.The US dollar was lower after the report, with an index tracking the currency against six peers recently down 0.31 per cent.Markets have already ramped up bets that the Fed would move to lower its benchmark rates after President Donald Trump last month opened up new fronts in the China-focused trade war , vowed to increase tariffs on Mexican imports and announced that the US will terminate duty-free imports from India on roughly 2,000 products.These expectations have been further fanned by Fed chairman Jay Powell’s suggestion on Tuesday that the central bank was prepared to cut interest rates and “act as appropriate to sustain the expansion” if Mr Trump’s trade wars weaken the economy.Those comments came a day after James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis and a voting member of the committee, said that a rate cut might be “warranted soon,” and that current interest rates might be “inappropriately high”.  READ SOURCE .

Job growth screeches to a near halt in May, with private payrolls up just 27,000

Career and Work BusinessTelegraph

Job creation skidded to a near-halt in May in another sign that the U.S. economic momentum is slowing.Companies added just 27,000 new positions during the month, according to a report Wednesday from payroll processing firm ADP and Moody’s Analytics
' Job creation skidded to a near-halt in May in another sign that the U.S. economic momentum is slowing.Companies added just 27,000 new positions during the month, according to a report Wednesday from payroll processing firm ADP and Moody’s Analytics that was well below Dow Jones estimates of 173,000.The reading was the worst since around the time the economic expansion began and the jobs market bottomed in March 2010 with a loss of 113,000.Since then, the private payrolls count has increased by 21.3 million. “Job growth is moderating,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said in a statement. “Labor shortages are impeding job growth, particularly at small companies, and layoffs at brick-and-mortar retailers are hurting.” Indeed, the most damage came at companies with fewer than 50 employees, which reported a loss of 52,000 jobs, and in the goods-producing sector, which saw a decline of 43,000.Almost all of the small business loss (50,000) came at firms with fewer than 20 employees, while the big loser in the goods sector was construction, where 36,000 positions were lost.Large companies withstood the slowdown, adding 68,000 jobs, while those with 50 to 499 employees contributed 11,000.The anemic May growth comes after a powerful surge in April of 271,000, the highest since July though revised down 4,000 from the initial reading.Private job creation in the ADP/Moody’s count has averaged 188,000 a month in 2019. “Following an overly strong April, May marked the smallest gain since the expansion began,” Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, said in a statement. “Large companies continue to remain strong as they are better equipped to compete for labor in a tight labor market.” The disappointing report comes two days before the more closely watched official government reading on nonfarm payrolls.Economists surveyed by Dow Jones expect the Labor Department to report growth of 180,000, down from April’s 263,000, and the unemployment report to hold at a 50-year low of 3.6%. The ADP report occasionally can cause economists to revise their expectations for nonfarm payrolls, though the two numbers can differ widely.Zandi later told CNBC that the May ADP number probably “overstates the case” for a weakening economy and estimated that the nonfarm payrolls report probably would come in around 150,000 based on the average of the past two months’ private payrolls numbers.At a sector level, all the gains came on the services side, which added 71,000 positions.Health care and social assistance grew by 34,000, followed by professional and business services (22,000), and leisure and hospitality (16,000). The “other services” category saw a drop of 9,000, while information lost 3,000 and education decreased by 1,000.All of the major goods producing categories reported losses, with natural resources and mining down 4,000 and manufacturing off by 3,000.Franchise jobs also fell by 4,800.The news comes at a sensitive time for the economy.After a solid 2018 that saw GDP up 2.9% and an unusually strong first-quarter growth rate of 3.1%, economists now expect a slowdown through at least the next two quarters.CNBC’s Rapid Update survey forecasts gains of just 1.7% in the second quarter.Financial markets have slowed considerably after a record-setting pace to start the year.Even with Tuesday’s powerful rally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen 4.4% in the past month.Markets are betting that the Federal Reserve steps in with at least two and possibly three rate cuts this year.In a speech Tuesday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank is prepared to “act as appropriate” to keep the expansion going, which markets took as an encouraging sign that policy easing could be on the way.

Pneumonia and gonorrhoea bugs found in dirty bedsheets after just one week, tests show

Health care BusinessTelegraph

SLIPPING into fresh, clean bedding is one of life’s small pleasures.
' SLIPPING into fresh, clean bedding is one of life’s small pleasures.But many of us are guilty of not changing our sheets regularly enough. 6 The bed which was swabbed every seven days to see how much bacteria grows on the sheets Credit: time4sleep Whilst you may think that popping them in the wash every three or four weeks is enough, experts say it’s not enough.In fact, new research has proven that bacteria linked to pneumonia and gonorrhoea starts growing in your bed within seven days.Last year British bed retailer Time4Sleep conducted a survey which revealed that one in four of us wait as long as a month to wash our bedding . So they decided to carry out an experiment with the help of the University of Seville’s Department of Biology to see what a four-week-old bedsheet looks like under the microscope.Under the microscope Willing volunteer, Jess, was asked to sleep in the same bed for 28 nights straight and not wash or change the sheets, pillowcases or duvet cover.The team collected samples from three areas – the pillow, the middle of the bed (where the torso would be) and the bottom (where the feet rest), at the end of each week.The samples were then sent off to the lab in Spain, where they were tested for bacteria and photographed under a microscope.Their findings by week four revealed an alarming list of dangerous bacteria growing inside the petri dishes.Among them were bacteroidales, which has been linked with pneumonia, gonorrhoea, and appendicitis.They also found fusobacteriales, known to cause throat infections leading to Lemierre’s syndrome, and neisseriales, which can cause gonorrhoea.Dangerous bacteria When tracked back to the original source, bacteria were found to come from everything from human skin and the oral cavity to human stool.Luis, from the Biology Development Centre, said: “The sources of this microorganism have been tracked and it has been determined that the microbial ecology of the pillowcase and sheets came from human skin, oral cavity, and stool. “The family of actinomyces is the most abundant bacteria found in the bedsheets in general and these were found in the area of the feet. “Members of clostridiales, bacteroidales, fusobacteriales, and neisseriales were found closer to the area of the pillowcase, although they were also common in the rest of the sheet.” The sources have been tracked and determined to have originated from human skin, oral cavity, and stool Biologist Luis Biology Development Centre, University of Seville The findings substantiate recent research from the North Carolina State University that revealed the ordinary beds of human beings have a greater diversity of bacteria than chimpanzee nests.Luis added: “Our findings compare favourably with the North Carolina State University paper published last year, which established a comparison between the microbial composition of human and primate beds. “Strikingly, based on this study, chimpanzee beds show less diversity of microorganism than those that can be identified in human beds.” Jonathan Warren, chief exec at Time4Sleep, said: “Despite the accepted habit that you should change your clothes every day, there is significantly less attention paid to how often you should look to change your bedsheets.FOWL PLAY White meat such as chicken as ‘bad for your cholesterol levels as red meat’ Revealed HEALTHY HABITS Seven health tips & tricks that you HAVE to bring back from your summer trip NO MORE NAILS I almost lost my finger after cut from ‘dirty’ nail salon tool caused growth WALKS OF LIFE Walking just 4,400 steps a day is enough to slash the risk of early death STROKE PROVOKED Stroke rates rocketing among young Brits due to obesity and cocaine use RAT’S DANGEROUS Piles of uncollected rubbish in LA could cause bubonic plague, expert warns NO LAUGHING MATTER Young people ignoring risks of laughing gas as deaths DOUBLE in one year JOG YOUR MEMORY Dramatic weight changes in later life can raise dementia risk by a QUARTER DOC’S ORDERS Kids who haven’t had MMR should face school BAN amid measles outbreak fears NETFLIX AND KILL Algorithm similar to Netflix’s can ‘predict death with 90% accuracy’ MORE VEGAN KIDS One in ten Brit kids are refusing to eat meat & identify as vegan or veggie “Given almost a quarter wait as long as a month, we decided to find out what meant for the hygiene of your bed. “The results highlight how important bed hygiene is to us all.Look to change your bedding at least every fortnight. “If you don’t, you’re likely sleeping in worse condition than a chimpanzee.” 6 This petri dish was taken from the bed at the start of the experiment when the sheets were totally clean Credit: time4sleep 6 By the end of the first week, it’s clear to see some bacteria has grown Credit: time4sleep 6 Swabs taken from the end of the second week reveal a further growth in bacteria Credit: time4sleep 6 By the end of the third week, scientists made yet further worrying discoveries in the petri dish Credit: time4sleep 6 By the end of the experiment, scientists had discovered dangerous bacteria linked to pneumonia or gonorrhoea Credit: time4sleep Video reveals step-by-step instructions to vacuum your mattress We pay for your stories!Do you have a story for The Sun Online news team?Email us at tips@the-sun.co.uk or call 0207 782 4368 .

Home solar panel installations fall by 94% as subsidies cut

Politics BusinessTelegraph

' The Labour party has accused the government of “actively dismantling” the UK’s solar power industry after new installations collapsed by 94% last month.Rebecca Long-Bailey, the shadow business secretary, used prime minister’s questions to challenge the government’s record on climate action after scrapping subsidies for domestic solar panels from April.Standing in for Jeremy Corbyn, Long-Bailey said solar power had the potential to cut household bills and carbon emissions, while creating thousands of jobs. “But the government, for some reason, appears to be determined to kill it off, while continuing to cheerlead for fracking,” she said.The end of the solar feed-in tariffs , which encouraged more than 800,000 homes to fit panels to their roofs, was widely expected after a series of cuts to subsidy levels in recent years.Renewable energy developers and green groups had hoped ministers would replace the scheme with another incentive system to avoid dashing the sector’s momentum and accelerating job losses in the industry.Instead, officials confirmed that new solar installations would be expected to give their unused clean power to energy companies for free.The opposition said data showed the scrapping of home panel subsidies from April caused new solar capacity to fall from 79MW in March to just 5MW last month.At this rate, it would take the government until 2092 to match Labour’s commitment to install solar panels on an additional 1.75m homes within its first term in power.The slowdown poses a major risk to plans put forward by the independent Committee on Climate Change to create a net zero carbon economy by 2045.Trade unions said last month that the number of jobs in renewable energy had plunged by nearly a third in recent years, due to a slowdown in the rollout of new projects.Theresa May had intended to confront Donald Trump about his views on climate breakdown during his state visit this week. “But with her government actively dismantling the UK solar industry, it is unclear who has the most to teach the other about climate change denial,” Long-Bailey said.

Bitcoin Recovers From 2.5-Week Lows But Price Outlook Remains Bearish

' View Bitcoin’s short-term outlook has turned bearish, courtesy of Tuesday’s UTC close below the 30-day average of price.A key daily and 3-day chart indicator is also indicating an end of the price rally from December lows.Hence, BTC’s $400 recovery from 2.5-week lows hit on Tuesday could be short-lived.Prices risk falling to $7,000 over the next few days.The hourly chart indicates the ongoing recovery may be extended to $8,000 before a potential slide toward $7,000.A UTC close above the 10-day price average at $8,383 is needed to invalidate the short-term bearish setup.Bitcoin’s (BTC) ongoing corrective bounce could be short-lived, as the charts are signaling a short-term bullish-to-bearish trend change.The premiere cryptocurrency is currently trading at $7,822 on Bitstamp – up almost $400 from the low of $7,432 hit yesterday.However, Tuesday’s UTC close below the 30-day moving average (MA) may embolden sellers, putting the sustainability of the gains in doubt.The 30-day MA has  served as strong support throughout the rally from early February lows near $3,500 to the recent high of $9,097.Essentially, BTC created multiple bullish higher lows along that line over the last four months, as discussed yesterday.Now, the short-term outlook has turned bearish with the first UTC close below the average since Feb. 8.Other widely-tracked technical indicators are also signaling a trend change in favor of the bears.Daily chart    The 14-day relative strength index (RSI) has dived out of the rising trendline representing a rally from December lows near $3,100, and is now teasing a drop into a bearish territory with a reading below 50.00.Further, the 5- and 10-day moving averages have produced a bearish crossover.The Chaikin money flow index – which takes into account both the price and trading volumes – is losing altitude, a sign of weakening buying pressure.The price action seen at press time also indicates that the tide has turned, with BTC struggling to register big gains above the 30-day MA, currently at $7,772.That BTC is revisiting the 30-day MA hurdle is not surprising, as markets tend to crowd out weak hands (buyers in this case) before falling on price breakdowns/breakouts.Overall, the cryptocurrency looks set to test the psychological support of $7,000 over the next few days. 3-day chart On the 3-day chart, the RSI has rolled over from overbought levels above 70, signaling scope for deeper correction.The indicator diverged in favor of the bears (lower highs) earlier this week.The Chaikin money flow index is also beginning to lose altitude on this time-frame.Thus, BTC risks falling to the 200-candle MA, currently flatlined at $7,211.Hourly chart The hourly chart tells a slightly different story, reporting a bullish divergence (higher lows) of the RSI.So BTC may extend its recovery to $8,000, before a potential slide toward $7,000, as suggested by the daily and 3-day charts.The short-term bias will remain bearish as long as prices are held below the 10-day MA, currently at $8,383.Disclosure: The author holds no cryptocurrency assets at the time of writing.Bitcoin  image via Shutterstock; charts by  Trading View READ SOURCE .

' Stephanie Noda North Jersey Record Published 6:26 AM EDT Jun 5, 2019 ORADELL — A new urgent care center will open on Kinderkamack Road, replacing a former car repair business.D&A Healthcare purchased the 2,020-square-foot building at 285 Kinderkamack Road and has plans to renovate the building to accommodate a Town Doctors Urgent Care Center, according to Chuck Lanyard, president of the Goldstein Group, the firm that helped broker the deal with former owner L.B.Holdings. “The spot is a great location” said Lanyard. “It’s a corner property with great exposure.” The property at the corner of Ridgewood Avenue is in the borough’s downtown, near the Bergen County Players theater and restaurants.Tax records show that owner Richard De Silva paid $25,377.53 in property taxes last year for the commercial site.More: Paramus Road will close for two weeks, ‘heavy delays’ expected: Here’s what to do More: Paramus, the retail colossus of New Jersey, looks to ban plastic bags More: Westwood to celebrate 125th anniversary with weeklong celebration Since the new owner is still figuring out the improvements that will be done to the building, it is unclear if approvals will needed from planning or zoning board.It could be four to six months before the new business debuts, Lanyard said “Urgent care operations have been a fast-growing business in the retail commercial industry and have been steadily acquiring retail locations for the last few years as they continue to expand their presence in local communities,” said Lanyard.

Gov.Gavin Newsom: ‘Let’s level about the high-speed rail’ Governor Gavin Newsom in Tuesday’s State of the State address gave his vision for building high-speed rail in California.By × Governor Gavin Newsom in Tuesday’s State of the State address
' Gov.Gavin Newsom: ‘Let’s level about the high-speed rail’ Governor Gavin Newsom in Tuesday’s State of the State address gave his vision for building high-speed rail in California.By × Governor Gavin Newsom in Tuesday’s State of the State address gave his vision for building high-speed rail in California.By Someday, there will be a high-tech bullet train that whisks Californians from one end of the state to the other at lightning speeds.But in the meantime, most of us would just settle for getting home from work in less than an hour.When we wonder who might deliver us from the horrors of perpetual traffic gridlock, consider the following contrast: In late April, the California High-Speed Rail Authority announced that they would complete a route for their train from Bakersfield to Merced by the year 2030 . About a week later, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced that the rocket company he owns would complete a lunar lander to return humans to the moon in less than half that time – within five years.Who do you think is more likely to come through – on time and under budget?While California retreats from a once-ambitious plan for a bullet train from the Bay Area to Los Angeles that would eventually connect to Sacramento, the global auto industry is moving at breakneck pace toward a future that is increasingly electric, autonomous and smarter.Virtually every automaker is bringing electric vehicles to market that will soon be substantially cheaper than internal combustion engines, and private sector entrepreneurs across the state and the country are racing to hone self-driving vehicle technology.While fully autonomous cars requiring no human oversight are still years away from widespread use, it’s almost certain that this breakthrough will occur long before local or state governments develop transportation alternatives that will free us from our ongoing traffic nightmare.Dan Schnur Mass transit is about to be revolutionized by private sector innovation as well.Large, fixed-route buses, light rail and subway systems will be replaced with smaller, smarter, autonomous minibuses with flexible routes.This will be cheaper for everyone – and avoids the enormous up-front capital costs of large public transit systems.The use of “big data” will provide the ability to take passengers on the most direct route to their destinations.We must also confront the increasing economic, environmental and quality-of-life threat that commuter congestion is causing to our major metropolitan areas.London and Stockholm have instituted congestion fees as a way of reducing the overwhelming numbers of cars coming into their central cities.New York is preparing to follow that example.It’s time for California’s largest cities to do so as well, but with a twist.For years, regional transportation districts have allowed commuters with two or more passengers into special carpool lanes.City planners are already considering incentives which would require ride-hailing companies to similarly discount trips for passengers who elect to travel with two or more passengers in the vehicles, and charge equally steep premiums for passengers who choose to drive alone.It’s become a cultural totem to acknowledge the special relationship between Californians and their cars, but the right set of financial and lifestyle incentives could quickly change that.Steve Westly Finally, our lawmakers must rethink our incredibly shrinking statewide high speed rail system.The original proposal on which Californians voted more than a decade ago would have moved passengers from Northern to Southern California in less than two-and-a-half hours.The project had a $9.95 billion budget and was guaranteed to pay for itself.What’s left from that original promise is a 119-mile Central Valley project which may benefit residents of that region, but will cost more than twice what the original system had been budgeted and almost certainly require annual cash infusions from the California taxpayer.Better to direct the resources designated for a statewide project into other regional systems instead, but using new technologies that are both faster and less expensive.The current rail project relies on 1960’s-era technology, for which the initial capital cost is huge.Newer technologies developed by multiple, competing companies could save the state billions in upfront costs and even more in ongoing operating and maintenance fees.The question isn’t how to pay for high speed rail, but whether to deploy more modern and less expensive technology to do the job right.There is a revolution taking place in new transportation technologies, and California is the global leader.Our public sector leaders can harness private sector innovation to make that future into a reality.Dan Schnur, the former chairman of the California Fair Political Practices Commission, is director of the The Sacramento Bee/McClatchy California Influencer series.Steve Westly, the former California state controller, is the managing partner of The Westly Group in Silicon Valley.Related stories from Sacramento Bee READ SOURCE .

‘Alarming’ rise in young people self-harming – with 1 in 5 teenage girls at risk

Health care BusinessTelegraph

RATES of self-harm in young people has risen “alarmingly” – with one in five teenage girls at risk, new research suggests.
' RATES of self-harm in young people has risen “alarmingly” – with one in five teenage girls at risk, new research suggests.A study published in The Lancet Psychiatry found that in 2014 six per cent of people had intentionally harmed themselves at some point in their life. 1 Self-harm rates have risen especially among teenagers and young women, figures show (stock image) Credit: Getty – Contributor That’s up from two per cent in 2000 – with the highest rate among girls and women aged 16 to 24.Emma Thomas, chief executive of charity YoungMinds, described the figures as “alarming”. The study provides the first evidence of long-term trends in non-suicidal self-harm in England, the researchers said.But self-harm can be an early warning sign that somebody may go on to attempt suicide, which is why it’s important to talk about it.The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues and encourage people to seek help. ‘Services need to be improved’ Lead author Sally McManus, from the National Centre for Social Research, said: “Non-suicidal self-harm is increasingly being reported as a way of coping. “We need to help people, especially young people, learn more appropriate and effective ways of dealing with emotional stress. “The availability of services needs to be improved, especially for young people, so that health, education and social care professionals can discuss the subject with them and support better emotional health.” Previous studies have used data from health services to measure self-harm, but many people who self-harm do not seek or receive help, the researchers said.They analysed responses from people aged 16 to 74 in England in 2000, 2007 and 2014, mainly using information from face-to-face interviews.Their sample included 7,243 people in 2000, 6,444 in 2007 and 6,477 in 2014.The rise in rates of self-harm – particularly among girls and young women – is alarming Emma Thomas chief executive of charity YoungMinds Across the period, the rate of lifetime non-suicidal self-harm rose from 2.4 per cent to 3.8 per cent to 6.4 per cent across the population.In 2000 and 2007, prevalence was similar between the sexes, but by 2014 it had become higher in women and girls than men and boys.Among 16 to 24-year-old girls and women in 2014, 19.7 per cent reported having self-harmed at some point in their life.This compared with 6.5 per cent in 2000 and 11.7 per cent in 2007.YOU’RE NOT ALONE EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support: The increase was mainly because of rises in self-cutting and use of self-harm to relieve unpleasant feelings, the authors said.Despite rising rates of self-harm, the researchers said they did not find evidence of an increase in people seeking treatment.The proportion of people who said they had no contact with medical or psychological services after self-harming was 51.2 per cent in 2000, 51.8 per cent in 2007 and 59.4 per cent in 2014.Ms Thomas said: “The rise in rates of self-harm – particularly among girls and young women – is alarming. “At the moment, it’s far too difficult for children and young people to get mental health support before they reach crisis point.TRAGIC SEND-OFF Jeremy Kyle Show ‘suicide’

people can get early support in their communities.” Jacqui Morrissey, assistant director of research and influencing at Samaritans, said: “Self-harm is a sign of serious emotional distress and while the majority of people who self-harm will not go on to take their own life, it is a strong predictor for future suicide risk. “It’s therefore vital that there is a broad public health approach, rooted in education across frontline professionals and the wider community, improved mental health services and effective support on and offline.” Why it’s up to all of us to reduce deaths by suicide We pay

UK new car market declines again in May – Autocar

' Britain’s new car market continued its negative trend in May in the face of continued political instability , a fall in consumer confidence and uncertainty over diesel . 183,724 new cars were registered last month, down 4.6% year-on-year, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.Private consumers bought 5% less cars, with fleet and business buyers falling by 3% and 29% respectively.One main factor is the sustained decline in demand for diesel cars, down 18.3% year-on-year in the 26th consecutive month of negative growth for the fuel.This wasn’t offset my a modest 1% growth in petrol cars, and an 11.7% rise in alternatively fuelled vehicle registrations.Of the rise in AFVs, petrol-electric hybrids saw demand increase by nearly 35%, with battery electric cars up 81%. However, plug-in hybrids have declined 40.6% in May and 25.1% overall this year – figures the SMMT claims are directly related to the government’s removal of the purchase grant for PHEVs .  Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive said “Confusing policy messages and changes to incentives continue to affect consumer and business confidence, causing drivers to keep hold of their older, more polluting vehicles for longer”.  “New cars are safer, cleaner and more advanced than ever and, with sophisticated safety, efficiency and comfort features as well as a host of attractive deals on offer, there has never been a better time to invest in a new car”.
