Ford has been saying its new electric crossover is “Mustang-inspired” since last year’s Detroit Auto Show. And with the official name, they really, really went there. The battery-powered performance crossover will be called the Ford Mustang Mach-E, complete with the pony logo and everything. It’s not so much “Mustang-inspired” as it is an official, legit member of the Mustang family. Just one with a tall ride height, four doors and no internal combustion engine. Advertisement I’d make a “horse of a different color” joke here, but that’s too damn obvious and I haven’t had enough coffee yet anyway. This car represents Ford’s first truly modern attempt at an EV, and an EV crossover. Announced in Detroit last year, it was initally tipped to be called the Mach 1. But after “a very strong reaction,” as Ford CEO Jim Hackett put it, that historic name was scrapped in favor of something new. Indeed, plenty … [Read more...] about Mustang Mach-E: Ford’s ‘Mustang-Inspired’ Electric Crossover Gets A Name
It’s very likely that the price for today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe VW Jetta GLI is about what the car cost new. It’s been renewed and looks to be... well, better than new. Could that all add up to that almost as-new price? I’ve been hearing a lot of late about fantasy sports lately, which naturally I took as a shortening of the term “fantasy sports cars.” Well, it turns out that’s not the case and now I’m not allowed on FanDuel any more. Advertisement That’s okay though because I can still get my fantasy sport fix with cars like yesterday’s 1998 Mitsubishi Montero SPORT. That rugged wagon even offered the tantalizing opportunity to shift your very own gears which, in the automotive world, was once the height of sportiness. Being sporty and being in remarkably good shape went a long way in proving the Montero worthy of its $4,995 asking—so much so in fact that it won an impressive 83 percent Nice Price win. Being … [Read more...] about At $16,500, Could This Be The Ultimate 1992 VW Jetta GLI 16V?
ASUS VivoBook 15.6" Laptop | $250 | Walmart For the user who only uses their laptop for browsing the web, Netflix and email, this 15.6” ASUS VivoBook is a solid laptop and quite a deal to boot. Advertisement It boasts a ton of screen real estate for such a thin and light laptop. And for a $250 laptop, it packs some pretty decent specs for the price: AMD Ryzen 5 2500U, 4GB DDR4 RAM and 128GB SSD. The amount of RAM here is pretty disconcerting to be quite honest, but it does have a RAM slot you can upgrade with. If you want a solid workhorse and have a pretty restrictive budget, this deal is hard to beat even with Black Friday on the horizon. Get yours before it sells out.

Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley introduced on Thursday a comprehensive criminal justice resolution package that would massively restructure America’s legal system—and fundamentally reshape the role prisons and jails play in American life. Titled “the People’s Justice Guarantee,” the resolution is a progressive vision of justice that is being touted as “the most progressive and comprehensive plan for overhauling the criminal legal system by a member of Congress,” according to a press release. On top of dozens of legislative proposals, Pressley’s resolution looks to undo decades of policies that have created a mass incarceration crisis. Advertisement “The criminal legal system is racist, xenophobic, rogue, and fundamentally flawed beyond reform,” the congresswoman told reporters on a Wednesday call. “It must be dismantled and radically transformed through a large-scale decarceration effort.” With … [Read more...] about Ayanna Pressley’s Latest Resolution Is a Sweeping Progression Vision that Would Transform America’s Legal System
If your favorite author has a new book coming out, there are two easy things you can do to support it: Buy it before it comes out. Buy it from an independent bookstore. If you pre-order a book, and if you pre-order it from somewhere other than Amazon and Barnes & Noble, you’re doing the author a huge favor. Advertisement This isn’t about the evils of Amazon. It’s about how the book industry works. Andrea Bartz, author of the murder mystery novels The Lost Night and the upcoming The Herd, recently explained on Twitter why she hopes people pre-order her book from an indie store. A human bookseller will notice When you pre-order a book at an independent store, an actual human who sells books for a living will notice. And that matters a lot. There are a lot of books published every year. Over 300,000, not counting the self-published ones. Booksellers have to judge which of those books anyone wants to buy, and stock those. They can’t just stock everything … [Read more...] about The Best Thing You Can Do to Support a New Book
