Major insurers plan to drop two car models' coverage

At least two major automotive insurers are refusing to protect certain Kia and Hyundai models because they lack anti-theft common in today’s cars, according to reports.
Both State Farm and Progressive confirmed with CNN that they no longer write policies for some Kia and Hyundai models manufactured between 2015-2019.

George Santos appears to have claimed he acted in 'Hannah Montana' and with Uma Thurman in a movie she wasn't actually in

Wikipedia page featuring the user's bio, which was first reported Friday by Politico, has since been taken down but was still accessible in internet archives. The bio, which appears to have last been edited on April 29, 2011, is riddled with typos and misspellings. It also includes details that align with Santos, including saying the user was born on July 22, 1988, to a Brazilian family with a European background.

It continues to say that "Anthony Devolder first startted his 'stage' life at age 17 as an gay night club DRAG QUEEN and with that won sevral GAY 'BEAUTY PAGENTS'!"

Santos, who is openly gay, this week denied ever performing in drag after several people told media outlets, including Insider, that they used to know him as a drag performer in Brazil.

The Wiki bio said Devolder "took his step into the begining of his carrer in witch he started in a few T.V shows and DISNEY Channel shows," including "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" and "Hannah Montana." It also said "he taped his very first movie in 2009," which was called "THE INVASION" and starred "Uma Turman," apparently a misspelling of Uma Thurman.

It's unclear what movie the bio was referring to. A movie called "The Invasion" came out in 2007, but it starred Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig — not the "Pulp Fiction" actress. No "Anthony Devolder" — or George Santos — was listed in the cast on IMDb.

Wyoming GOP Considers Declaring War on Electric Vehicles to Protect Fossil Fuels

Republicans in Wyoming’s state senate are considering a resolution banning new electric vehicle sales in the state by 2035, an answer to California and New York states’ recent laws that would bar the sale of gas-powered vehicles in those states by the same year.

“The Legislature would be saying, ‘If you don’t like our petroleum cars, well, we don’t like your electric cars,’” said the resolution’s sponsor, Republican State Sen. Jim Anderson, Cowboy State Daily reported.

The Wyoming resolution, “Phasing Out New Electric Vehicle Sales By 2035,” is largely a symbolic gesture, as it would not be legally binding if passed. But Wyoming Republicans still think it’s important enough to consider passing, even if only to troll Democratic states that favor electric vehicles.

Semiconductor maker Micron announces 10% staff reduction, suspends bonuses

Semiconductor maker Micron announced Wednesday that it would reduce its headcount by about 10% in 2023, in the latest example of a technology industry slowdown affecting employment.

Shares of Micron fell more than 1% in extended trading.

Idaho-based Micron has about 48,000 employees, according to a recent SEC filing. The company said it would hit its reduction target through voluntary departures as well as layoffs.

Micron also said it is suspending 2023 bonuses.

"On December 21, 2022, we announced a restructure plan in response to challenging industry conditions," the company said in an SEC filing. "Under the restructure plan, we expect to reduce our headcount by approximately 10% over calendar year 2023, through a combination of voluntary attrition and personnel reductions."

Here is what I don’t get, car companies can’t finish cars because the can’t get chips, meanwhile the chip companies are cutting production.

Maybe they don’t make automotive chips, if they don’t, why are they not evolving the business?

Companies turn to cutting the moment they are not meeting certain market targets.

I have been a victim of one of these corporate restructuring events.

New Georgia House Republican arrested on drug and theft charges

WINDER, Ga. (AP) — An incoming Georgia state representative has been arrested after investigators said he stole prescription narcotics at the retirement complex he manages.

Danny Rampey, 67, of Statham, was arrested Thursday, jail records show. He was charged with six counts of obtaining drugs by misrepresentation or theft, six counts of exploiting an elder or disabled adult, five counts of burglary, and one count of drug possession.

Rampey remained jailed Friday with no bail set. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Arizona Governor created housing at the boarder

Arizona governor builds border wall of shipping crates in final days of office

A makeshift new barrier built with shipping containers is being illegally erected along part of the US-Mexico border by Arizona’s Republican governor – before he has to hand over the keys of his office to his Democratic successor in January.
Doug Ducey is driving a project that is placing double-stacked old shipping containers through several miles of national forest, attempting to fill gaps in Donald Trump’s intermittent border fencing.
The rusting hulks, topped with razor wire and with bits of metal jammed into gaps, stretch for more than three miles through Coronado national forest land, south of Tucson, and the governor has announced plans to extend that up to 10 miles, at a cost of $95m

I work in Georgia while living in South Carolina, I asked Georgians if I could vote Tuesday

I said if it's OK for Walker to run for Senate in Georgia while living in Texas, I should be allowed to vote in Georgia while living in South Carolina

I am not sure these people knew.

Worker pleads guilty in election equipment tampering case

DENVER (AP) — A former elections manager who prosecutors say assisted in a security breach of voting equipment in a Colorado county pleaded guilty on Wednesday under a plea agreement that requires her to testify against her former boss.

Sandra Brown is one of two employees accused of helping Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters allow a copy of a hard drive to be made during an update of election equipment last year in search of proof of the false conspiracy theories spun by former President Donald Trump.

Brown, 45, pleaded guilty to attempting to influence a public servant, a felony, and official misconduct, a misdemeanor, but will not be sentenced until right after she testifies at Peters’ trial next year so her performance on the witness stand can be considered.

“There were things going on that I should have questioned and I didn’t,” Brown told Judge Matthew Barrett.

In August, Peters’ chief deputy, Belinda Knisley, also pleaded guilty under a deal that required her to testify against Peters. She only pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts and was immediately sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation.

Is the MAGA Cult trying to cut Desantis out of the picture by framing him as TFGs running mate?

Voted early in South Carolina 1hr wait to vote.

It wasn’t for lack of machines, just numbers of voters.

I was frustrated with the ballot. Why do Democrats leave so many offices uncontested?

There were 6 local offices with no Democrats and one for state rep.

It can’t be that hard to place a name in the slot.
