2019 Jaguar XEFuture Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will help passengers avoid motion sickness as the brands announced on Wednesday that new research has helped engineers understand how to keep nausea at bay while traveling. The brands' motion-sickness research has helped create an algorithm to gauge the condition of passengers in the car. A "wellness score" takes many variables into account and provides a final determination to understand when passengers begin to feel sick. Biometric sensors record physiological signals, which a system analyzes alongside motion and dynamics data. JLR said the system is so precise that the car will know when a passenger is feeling sick before the human body warns a person. Jaguar-Land Rover motion sickness prevention Motion sickness mostly occurs in children, but numerous adults also suffer from sick feelings in the car—JLR said 70 percent of people experience motion sickness.

Statutory sick pay when self employed
Kristen Jordan Shamus Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 20, 2018 Cindy Shank was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. Her three daughters were sentenced to 15 years without a mother. Her husband lost a wife. Cindy missed bedtime stories and kissing boo-boos, carving pumpkins, Easter egg hunts, birthday parties and Christmas mornings. She missed 4-year-old Autumn's first dance recital, baby Annalis' first steps, and 2-year-old Ava's first day of school. Her marriage to Adam Shank was torn to shreds. The fallout from Cindy Shank's 2008 sentencing on drug conspiracy charges was wide-reaching. It changed the trajectory of the life of the woman who went to prison that day as well as the lives of everyone who loved her. All of it is captured in a film directed by her brother Rudy Valdez, who grew up in Lansing and set out to document the lives of Cindy's children so his sister would one day be able to see what … [Read more...] about ‘The Sentence’ reveals who really pays when mom goes to prison

The pay increase was agreed after union reps for the United Voices of the World union met council leader Elizabeth Campbell and chief executive Barry Quirk.

Union rep Petros Elia also interrupted a planning meeting to argue for a rise to £10.20 an hour, which is the voluntary London Living Wage. The council said details have to be worked out. A spokesman said: “We had positive talks and we hope the dialogue continues.

Quain March 15, 2018 A car wends its way through a line of taxis in the Las Vegas rain, carefully steering around a tangle of sedans vying for passengers. As the black Lincoln MKZ gets closer, the steering wheel saws back and forth, but there’s no one in the front seat. In fact, there’s no one in the car at all. It’s disquieting to be picked up by an empty car, and it’s something of a milestone: Inside most autonomous research vehicles cruising public streets, there’s a minder to keep a watchful eye and take control should things go awry. But with the MKZ, there was no human custodian. At least not one within view. Hundreds of miles away, Ben Shukman, a software engineer for Phantom Auto, was sitting in front of a phalanx of video screens in Mountain View, Calif. Using a … [Read more...] about When Self-Driving Cars Can’t Help Themselves, Who Takes the Wheel?
