Dubai launches self-flying taxis, world’s first(PHOTOS)

The world’s first self-flying taxi was launched at the Jumeirah Beach Park in Dubai, United Arab Emirates today.

The Autonomous Air Taxi (AAT) of Dubai was the brainchild of Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA).

According to Dubai Media Office, the two-seater AAT, capable of transporting people without human intervention or a pilot, has been supplied by Volocopter, a Germany-based specialist manufacturer of automated air vehicles.

The AAT, expected to be put into use in the fourth quarter, is powered by electricity and is highly safe. Its design comprises 18 rotors to ensure secure cruising and landing in case of any rotor failure, said RTA.

“It is environment-friendly as it is powered by clean electricity, and it has very little noise. It has a maximum flight time of approximately 30 minutes at a speed of 50 km per hour, and a maximum air speed of 100 km per hour,” according to RTA.

“After the remarkable success of the first driverless metro in the region, we are glad to witness today the test flight of the Autonomous Air Taxi,” said Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum.

“This is another proof of our commitment to positive change. We are constantly exploring opportunities to serve the community and advance the prosperity and happiness of society,” he added.

#WorldWar111?America shows military fire power over North Korean Leader Kim.

America is set to take on North Korea as two U.S. B-1B supersonic bombers and four F-35B stealth fighter jets joined four South Korean F-15 fighters in live-fire exercises at a military field in eastern South Korea for ten hours #today one day after anti-missile test off Hawaii.

The United States deployed cutting-edge stealth jets which are highly advanced and long range bombers for military drills with South Korea on Thursday, in a clear warning to North Korea following their ballistic missile launch earlier this week.

North Korea hates such displays of U.S. military might along the Korean peninsula and will likely respond with anger as the exercise will make things get worse as each side wants to prove superior power.

Analysis: Why is "Made in Germany" fading?


German government officials and automakers meet to discuss the future of diesel vehicles, after a nearly two-year saga of scandal spread from Volkswagen to others in the sector.

"Made in Germany" is fading as the country's most well-known automobile industry was in crisis and the latest "Diesel Summit" ended in Berlin with a widely-called "Micky Mouse deal".

"Made in Germany" is now less taken as the distillation of all German characters of efficiency, reliability, precision and the pursuit of excellence, rather more marked by cheating and lack of innovative spirit.

CHEATING JEOPARDIZES REPUTATION

Germany's cherished reputation for engineering excellence and reliability, which have long been the secret to success of "Made in Germany", was jeopardized by the 2015 exposure of Volkswagen(VW) software cheating and illegally pumping out tons of deadly nitrogen oxides in millions of diesel cars worldwide.

Audi and Daimler, another two major German automakers, were also found cheating on emissions.

Cars "Made in Germany" have been confronting growing public outrage domestically and overseas for underplaying the health effects of diesel fumes and misleading customers about their cars' daily pollution.

"We know, we've lost trust," said Daimler Chairman Dieter Zetsche at the conference press after the Diesel Summit. This was confirmed by the Emnid poll, showing a majority of Germans thought the carmakers "untrustworthy."

"The automobile industry has driven itself into difficult territory," Germany's Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt said in an interview with Germany's daily newspaper Bild.

"The reputation of cars 'made in Germany' risks being damaged and that's something that would be dreadful," he added.

German news magazine Der Spiegel shocked the world again by exposing the price-fixing and component-coordinating cartel of the three German powerful carmakers, which has allegedly been running for two decades to the detriment of consumers, suppliers and the market environment.

"Recent events make it evident that an ethical cultural change must take place in large parts of the automobile industry," said Stefan Bratzel, professor of automotive economy at FHDW university at Bergisch Gladbach near Germany's western city of Cologne.

BELATED TRANSITION DECAYS "MADE IN GERMANY"

While France and Britain successively announced their ban on oil-fueled vehicles by 2040, Germany appallingly decided to prolong the life of highly polluted diesel cars. The belated transition in German automotive industry has somewhat dragged its heels.

"The government's chumminess with the auto industry continues," Oliver Krischer, a leader of the opposition Green Party, said in a statement Wednesday. "While China, California, Norway and many others are tackling electromobility, the government is turning Germany into a diesel museum."

With around 15 million diesels cars rolling on its roads, Germany, mother land of diesel engines, is now in a crying need for diesel cars. The past glory, together with the temptation of interest, dragged the transition of German automakers, and weakened their competitiveness.

Holding merely 36 percent of European market, German automakers have to compete with traditional rivals of Japan, France, Britain, South Korea and the United States on the one hand, and with electric vehicle manufacturers, including Tesla, on the other.

Germans are still proud of a sector that is key to the country's identity as "Exportweltmeister": VW, Mercedes-Benz and BMW account for half the country's trade surplus. Yet it is precisely this dominance that is under threat.

Germany's reactions to the unveiling of Tesla 3 were equally fascination, envy and panic. Britain has joined France in committing to fully phasing out fossil-fuelled cars by 2040, dealing a potential blow for the Germans, as some 10 percent of the country's industrial workforce depends on the internal combustion engine.

Doom-laden prophesies warn of national decline. One Bild columnist said the car sector could suffer the same fate as the coal industry and consumer electronics. Could Daimler follow Grundig and Blaupunkt?

SUPERVISION LOOPHOLES

For a faded "Made in Germany", the government, which has close relations with automakers, can not shirk its responsibility.

The government connives at automotive industry for good reasons. Providing 800,000 jobs, the industry is Germany's largest export sector. Tantamount to 20 percent of its share, the industry also stands as the icon of "Made in Germany".

Meanwhile, government's chumminess with the auto industry is strengthened by powerful auto lobbyist groups.

Everything is born, according to Bild, from a chart showing that the federal transport office was already aware of the fact that the Porsche Macan diesel gas abatement devices were irregular one year ago.

In a first version of the Motorization report, the device is definitely defined as a "shutdown system." But in the second, after an exchange of views with Porsche, it is referred to simply as "a change of behavior in terms of emissions of the system abatement of exhaust gases."

In this sense, the just-concluded "Diesel Summit" is a governmental crisis management. For New York Times, Wednesday's meeting between ministers, state leaders and car company chiefs was an attempt to contain a crisis of confidence that threatens Germany's most important industry, and perhaps even its national identity, ahead of elections next month.

Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, a car industry analyst at the University of Duisburg-Essen Center for Automotive Research, called the agreement a farce and said that political leaders had squandered the opportunity to force a more meaningful change on the carmakers.

"The biggest losers are the politicians and their credibility," he said, calling for more reforms and stricter supervision from the government.

Google And YouTube Ban Prof Who Refused To Use Gender-Neutral Pronouns

A professor in Canada who refuses to use gender-neutral pronouns and criticizes social justice issues was banned from using his Google and YouTube accounts Tuesday.

Professor Jordan B. Peterson of the University of Toronto disputed Google and YouTube’s decision to lock him out of his accounts, according to correspondence obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Please tell me what principle I have violated,” said Peterson in his email to Google upon discovering that he was locked out of his account. “I have not violated any terms that I am aware of and have not misused my account.”

The psychology professor has over 350,000 subscribers on his Youtube channel, which he uses as a platform to post his lectures, interviews, and Q&As.

“We understand you’ve recently been unable to access your Google account, and we appreciate you contacting us,” said Google in a response. “After review, your account is not eligible to be reinstated due to a violation of our Terms of Service.”

But Google did not provide any details regarding which rule the professor violated.

When emailed at his Google address, Google returns an “Address not found” error message.

“I’ve had that account for the last, say, 15 years,” said Peterson to TheDCNF. “All of my correspondence is in that account. It’s hundreds of thousands of emails from people all over the world.”

The professor said he initially thought it was just a mistake.

“But the fact that they reviewed it and then decided that my account is not eligible to be reinstated indicates to me either that this is quite a curious mistake or that there’s something that’s political going on that is associated with censorship.”

Peterson reiterated that he had not violated the terms of service, stating that he had only recently posted a video detailing his plans for the future. The professor said that he could not

“This is just another example of these big companies that either [kowtow] to pressure…or deciding on their own accord who gets to communicate and who doesn’t,” he told TheDCNF. 

Peterson’s YouTube videos criticizing social justice regularly obtain tens or hundreds of thousands of views. The professor came under scrutiny in 2016 after criticizing a bill which could potentially criminalize using the wrong gender pronoun to identify someone. That bill is now law.

Vladimir Putin signs law banning VPN access for Russian internet users

Just one day after it was revealed that Apple had removed virtual private networking (VPN) apps from its China App Store at the behest of the government, we've learned that officials in Russia are cracking down on VPN services, too. 


A new law, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, now bans any technology, including VPNs, used to visit websites banned in Russia, Reuters reported on Sunday. 


Like China, Russia keeps a tight leash on the sites it allows its citizens to visit. Back in 2014, Putin passed a law that required internet companies to store the data of Russian users on Russia-based servers, a rule that stoked fears that Russian internet users would have their information and internet access censored by the government. 


According to Leonid Levin, the head of Duma's information policy committee, the new law is designed to guard against illegal content rather than enable government censorship. Nevertheless, earlier this month, protesters took to the streets of Moscow to protest  Russia's strict new internet policies. 

The new rule impacting VPNs will go into effect on November 1.
