Forty people who attempted to commit suicide in central London in the past two years were recorded as being of "no fixed abode". City of London Police have recommended CCTV and anti-suicide nets be installed in the Square Mile, telling City council leaders they are dealing with an increasing number of attempts. The figures were revealed in a report to the City of London Corporation last week, which noted that while the attempts have increased, the number of actual suicides remains static due to intensive prevention efforts by authorities and charities working in the area. City of London Police findings from the last two years showed those most likely to attempt suicide in the City were aged between 45 and 59, and 60 per cent were male, in line with national trends.

Thermal imaging is something we expect to see as an option on a high-end luxury vehicle, but Volkswagen plans to have them at the ready for the 2019 model-year Touareg. While it’s not exactly a budget model, that’s still a major leap forward for a mainstream automaker. The downside is that North America will have to remain patient as VW starts baking the technology into more vehicles, because the brand already decided to eliminate the Touareg from its 2018 U.S. lineup. Infrared (IR) cameras aren’t new. In addition to being mandatory equipment on self-driving test vehicles, they frequently crop up as a way to help semi-autonomous … [Read more...] about Volkswagen Debuts Impressive Thermal Imaging Technology, U.S. Will Have to Wait

I know this because I missed it, twice, and only realized I'd missed it the first time when I happened to glance out the window and see a ribbon of blonde sand snaking away from U.S. Route 95, an arrow-straight two-lane highway that traverses Nevada from north to south. This is desolate country, a land of sand and dirt and scrubby plants no taller than your knee, where July days regularly hit triple digits, billboards warn of the perils of methamphetamine, and one mile of road looks like the next which looks like the next.
