It's been an awesome journey, but I was finally fired from uber for making videos. The TL;DW of the video - I was fired, I reminisce about what this thing has meant to me and the process of developing this channel and myself, and I talk about moving forward. Thanks for being a part of this adventure, despite the shitty circumstances, I am excited about getting into something new. Hit me up in the comments!

"After enduring nearly two months of reduced wages in the midst of rideshare industry IPOs, the 4,200 members of Rideshare Drivers United- Los Angeles will strike both the Uber and Lyft platforms for 24 hours on Wednesday, May 8, demanding that Uber immediately reverse a recent 25 percent wage, and that both companies guarantee drivers a $28 per hourly minimum rate (or $17 after expenses), as already required in New York City.
RDU-LA members will turn off their apps for the entire day throughout the Los Angeles metro area. Members will picket at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) terminals with colorful signs. A rally will be held at noon, where drivers will speak about the impact of withering wages other abuses inflicted by Uber and Lyft as both companies launch their IPOs.
“Uber estimates that 15 percent of their revenues come from airport pick-ups” said Karim Bayumi, a Lyft driver who typically works at the airport. “We provide an essential service, but Uber and Lyft investors are only ones reaping the benefits. Our picket and rally will show that rideshare drivers will not be invisible—we demand justice.”
Uber and Lyft drivers have faced real challenges this month. On March 11, Uber cut driver compensation in Los Angeles from .80 per mile to .60 per mile. Soon after, Lyft eliminated their multipliers, which allow drivers to earn more than the base rate of .80 per mile.
Since the cuts, James Hicks, an Uber driver for three years, says he and his wife “are treading water so that we don’t drown.” The couple were already taking payday loans to afford the $2300 dollars a month for the two-bedroom apartment he shares with his wife. “With Uber’s cuts this month,” Hicks says, “we had to bite the bullet. We moved across the hall into a one bedroom for $1900, which is what our two-bedroom used to cost.”
But while Wall Street and Silicon Valley cash in, drivers continue to bear the brunt.
“Mayor Eric Garcetti rang the bell for Lyft’s IPO just days after our strike, calling them a socially responsible company,” said Sinakhone Keodara, a Lyft driver who has faced housing insecurity. “But creating an underclass of homeless drivers as collateral damage is anything but responsible. Driving for Lyft pays below minimum wage. We need a minimum per hour rate to compensate for the fact that we sometimes miss out on the bonuses.”
In their recent S-1 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Lyft says they can only be profitable if drivers are treated as independent contractors, which violates California state law. Similarly, Uber told their investors they expect greater driver dissatisfaction in the coming years.
RDU-LA demands major reforms to the industry to make it fair, dignified, and sustainable. Their Drivers Bill of Rights includes a ten percent commission cap, transparency around deactivations, the right for drivers to organize and negotiate with the companies, and community standards around traffic and emissions to ensure that the rideshare industry benefits the cities where it operates."

According to Digital Trends, Nissan plans to recycle old car batteries by using them in campers.
Nissan teamed up with trailer manufacturer Opus to design a portable camper, which will be powered by a first-generation Leaf battery.
Known as the Nissan Roam, the recycled battery pack will fit into a rectangular box about the size of a carry-on suitcase.
Inside, the pack features lithium-ion cells sourced from car batteries that were replaced after reaching their life cycle.
The Nissan Roam pack will store up to 700 watt hours of power with a 400-watt solar panel, which can recharge the pack in a few hours.

The Designworks department of the BMW Group has designed this portable shelter, in collaboration with the company The North Face. This trailer, designed to withstand the worst possible conditions, is no more than a prototype with which BMW shows us one of the many applications of the great innovation of The North Face, its FUTURELIGHT fabric. The FUTURELIGHT fabric, which The North Face will introduce in its range of textile products, has been developed to be breathable, and therefore permeable to air, but at the same time prevent the passage of water and therefore be completely impermeable to air.
The shelter presented does not seem to have any signs of becoming commercialized. In fact, if the most important factor of a portable shelter is that of being able to install it, and use it, in very inaccessible places, and under the most adverse weather, it does not seem to make much sense that it needs to be towed by a vehicle....
