Google’s Self-Driving Car Leader Exits - WSJ

The face of the Google self-driving car effort has left the project at a crucial juncture as the company tries to transition its driverless-car technology into a commercial product.

Chris Urmson, the project’s chief technology officer and former director, said in a blog post Friday that he was leaving Google parent Alphabet Inc. and was “ready for a fresh challenge.” He gave no clear reason for his departure nor hint of his destination.

A company spokesman said in an email that when Google’s self-driving car project began seven years ago, “the idea that a car could drive itself wasn’t much more than an idea. Chris has been a vital force for the project, helping the team move from a research phase to a point where this life-saving technology will soon become a reality. He departs with our warmest wishes.”

J.K. Rowling Just Can’t Let Harry Potter Go - The New York Times

LONDON — J. K. Rowling always said that the seventh Harry Potter book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” would be the last in the series, and so far she has kept to her word. But though she’s written many new things in the intervening nine years, including four adult novels, she’s never been able to put Harry to rest, or to leave him alone.

What’s an author to do when she once seemed to be done? Taking an approach that some fans love and others do not, Ms. Rowling has never made a secret of her continued immersion in Potter-world. Over the years, she has regularly interjected new elements into the old stories, sometimes through sudden Twitter pronouncements, sometimes by other means. (In 2007, for instance, she announced at an event at Carnegie Hall that Dumbledore, whose sexuality in the books was obscure, is in fact gay.)

Washington (CNN) An upcoming biography of former President George H.W. Bush contains harsh critical assessments by the 41st president of some of the top officials from his son's presidency.

The former president knocked former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to his biographer, Jon Meacham in interviews for "Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush," calling Cheney an "iron-ass" and labeling Rumsfeld "an arrogant fellow."

How life imitates wrestling - The Daily Iowan

Wrestling is not easy, but neither is life, Dan Gable said. This is one of the many lessons he hopes readers take away from his new book, A Wrestling Life: The Inspiring Stories of Dan Gable.

“This book, to me — it says a wrestling life, but it’s more than wrestling,” he said. “It’s about total life and how you have to work through struggles, and that’s kind of like a wrestling match. It’s not easy.”

Basic Economics - Walter E. Williams

Economics is not just about goods and services that we enjoy as consumers. It's more fundamentally about productivity -- that is, how the use of land, labor, capital and other inputs that go into producing the volume of output determines a nation's wealth. Decisions about how to use those inputs may be more important than the resources themselves. There are countries, such as Japan and Switzerland, that have far greater wealth than countries -- for example, Uruguay and Venezuela -- that are far richer in natural resources.
