Guardians of the truth? Some of TIME’s ‘Person(s) of the Year’ choices are perplexing

TIME magazine has chosen a group of journalists it refers to as ‘The Guardians’ as its 2018 most influential ‘Person of the Year’ – but some of the journalists the magazine included for honors have raised a few eyebrows.

The decision to pick journalists for the annual title was perhaps not so surprising in the era of Donald Trump, who is constantly at odds with the media at large, labeling any report he isn’t fond of as “fake news” – but there is a niggling sense that TIME’s decision to put the spotlight on the media as the Guardians of truth is not entirely sincere.

'We shouldn't be hitting things every 15,000 miles': Uber employee warned firm of self-driving safety risks five days before autonomous car struck and killed a pedestrian

A fatal accident involving a pedestrian and one of Uber's self-driving vehicles could have been prevented, a new report claims.

An employee warned the ride-sharing giant that there were issues with Uber's autonomous-driving technology just days before Elaine Herzberg, a 49-year-old Arizona woman, was struck and killed.

The email, which was sent to several high-level executives at Uber, warned that the self-driving cars had been involved in several accidents, likely due to 'poor behavior of the operator of the AV technology,' according to the Information.

Robbie Miller, a manager in the testing-operations group, sent the email on March 13th.

The crash, which involved Herzberg being hit by a manned autonomous vehicle in Tempe, Arizona, occurred just five days later on March 18th.

Miller sent the email to seven of Uber's attorneys and executives, including Eric Meyhofer, who leads the firm's autonomous vehicle division.

THE US WANTS TO BRING BACK THE SHAH OF IRAN

The US had a great deal going from 1953 to 1979 with the Shah of Iran. For 25 years Iran was a cornerstone of the US usurping the British Empire in the Middle East, following World War Two. Iran was a base for projecting US power in the region, and strategically it bordered the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
