Dear Parisian Taxi drivers, while you are busy burning Uber cars and trying to get it banned the real threat to your livelihood is gathering force. 
 
Notice anything new on the streets of Mountain View, California? Our latest prototype vehicles are ready for the road and a few of them are now cruising around town! 

These prototype vehicles are designed from the ground up to be fully self-driving. They’re ultimately designed to work without a steering wheel or pedals, but during this phase of our project we’ll have safety drivers aboard with a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal that allow them to take over driving if needed. The prototypes’ speed is capped at a neighborhood-friendly 25mph, and they’ll drive using the same software that our existing Lexus vehicles use—the same fleet that has self-driven over 1 million miles since we started the project. 

As we start to cruise around the neighborhood, we really want to hear what our neighbors think. To learn more about our project or to leave feedback on how we’re driving, please visit our website: www.google.com/selfdrivingcar.

See you on the road!

A couple interesting articles about distorted gender ratios in India and some of the consequences of aggressively aborting female foetuses.

Your chickpeas, lentils, and soyburgers take a lot of water to produce. Here's a look at some of the state's most thirsty crops.  
With California's drought worsening, there has been a growing focus on the ; amount of water needed to produce certain foods.

They spin tales about its successes and failures, but they don’t care about its complexity.

It seems hard to believe that despite many decades of Italian immigration to the US (4 million by 1920), most of them around New York, +The New York Times discovered pizza only in 1944. It took a few more years for it to really catch on in the US.

This article points to what was happening in New York City. Immigrants have been moving upstate well before the war, so I have to believe that pizza was already being made up here, possibly in small restaurants in small communities, but definitely in Italian homes. We didn't come here until after the war, so I can't say either way. Just seems like this is the NY Times doing its usual, New York is New York City routine. Thanks for the post, +Niranjan Tulpule. Thanks for the tag, +Hugo Whistle. :)

This doesn't cover ~75% of the water used for farming, since most of the agriculture water doesn't have metering (people pay a flat rate for unlimited use).

Android UI testing done right 

We've been continuously refining our UI testing approach on Android, and I am proud of what my team has done so far. Good testing solutions don't just need good automation frameworks, but it also needs to be a fundamental part of how software is written. This is the first in a series of posts by +Mona Wagdy El Mahdy which describes how to build Android apps that are modular, and enable fast and stable UI tests and describes lessons learned while testing the very app you are using to read this post (Google+).

Good food. We had the tasting menu with the accompanying wine pairings. The pairings were done well and the food was great (taste, ingredients and presentation). The only negative aspect was that the service wasn't as polished.

Snobby and overpriced tastings. The wines are pretty mediocre.
