GM to offer car insurance based on driving habits
"There's a change happening in automobile ownership. That is big time significant for your wallet. It started as so many other innovative things seemed to do. And the vehicle business. With tesla that has experimented with selling vehicle insurance along with your ownership or lease of a tesla and they only do it in a more limited fashion but something that maybe eventually they will roll out is a national thing. The reason tesla is so keen on this. Is that traditional auto. Insurers seem completely unprepared for an era where the vehicle will do the driving and and think about that. Thought you just sit there while the vehicle drives you to your destination so then if something happens in your in iraq. Whose fault is the car or is it you or is it. Some combination of which traditional auto insurers have fallen flat on their faces responding to the technological change in the market will general motors which is also installing. More and more vehicles with autonomous systems is now launching a car insurance business that they're planning to offer across the fifty states so they're only going to do it in a slow rollout 'til sometime in twenty one when they'll have the legal right to sell auto insurance in the whole country and they've not said when in twenty one it will be available but what they're doing at gm is you know forever. Even before tesla was cool. They've really pushed their onstar connected. Data service that's become steadily more sophisticated. So when you sign up if you choose to if you're a gm vehicle owner chevy Gmc truck buick. Whatever cadillac when you sign up you are giving them permission to figure out. Are you driving or is vehicle driving itself and if you're driving how are you driving. What speed are you going at. Are you doing jack. Rabbits stops and starts and stops. Are you doing rapid lane changes in other words. They're going to collect all the data on how you are operating your vehicle and whether you're operating it or the vehicles operating itself one of the penalty box things is if you don't have your tires properly inflated which increases the chances of you being in an accident when your tires or under inflated note to self if you don't have your tires properly inflated just generally not just about the premature wear and tear of your tires it can put you in danger. Get air in those tires. What i do is i have An air pump at home. That's a really good one that i can just Hook it up to the to the cigarette lighter. They're still is such a thing in the car and hook it up the tire and just watch the meter to see when he's got the right. Psi the right Number of pounds of air in the tire. And then i know that tire is right and safe but the idea of vehicle insurance changing like this is this is only the beginning where we will be judged based on who who's driving how we're driving and where we're driving and the traditional idea of auto insurance is not over but it's definitely at the beginning of the end in how we pay will be completely different potentially per mile of variety of ways that we will pay for vehicle insurance and if you are a gm vehicle owner and you have on star when this coverage is available. Look at it and see if it would be a money saver for you instead of being with a traditional vehicle insurer.
Nature: Disconnect to Reconnect
"We are your host. This is how we came here. My name is real Vin and this is a podcast about Brown men talking about issues that matter to you. We talk about things that we don't usually talk about in home and communities were just three regular Compass sharing our experiences to inspire positive change. Compa pull up a seat. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to Los compas Lowndes and we have yet another topic. It's almost it's interesting. The the last the last topic was brown men in the ITP and you know, sometimes you got you got to just get away from that screen, you know, and you gotta get away from just everything that's going on, you know going on in the neighborhood man, and and I know off for for the school psaki, you know, one big one way that we do it is by just going out into nature man. It's a way to disconnect and Thursday at least for me to recharge and reconnect, you know, so but one thing that I always see, you know that I that I always observe is that I'm usually the only Chicano out them, you know, usually the only brown man out out there in nature, you know, whether whether it's going to ston a you know, a little four hour hike or going camping, you know, yep. Going for the Deep ones like, you know going, you know going into the national parks and everything. It seems like I'm usually the only brown person there or you know, the the small brown community that I go with, you know home and that's always hurt me, you know, and I don't know if about you guys if you noticed that or you know, if you even you know, if you know, but that's a good what do you guys think about? Yeah, that's a good way to look at this stuff. It's like very interesting kind of twist our topic on the outdoors experience for for all people, right? And then sometimes you don't think about it. But but yeah, that's something we can dig into in terms of like why are there so few of us, you know, maybe maybe there's a secret place that we're not aware of and we're not invited but but you know, I certainly like to think that the outdoors experience is open to all people regardless of your shade of Cutler, but that's that's certainly something that I've experienced and I've looked at as well and it's funny how you said, you know, we lost one passes all about connecting. But sometimes we need to disconnect to connect right, you know connecting in a different format. So I think that's really awesome. So for me for sure getting out there, it's beautiful. I think blogging I haven't done it in a while and especially during this pandemic, you know, there's no way we're getting out there with the kids. But you know, I think about hiking or I think about the outdoors as just an odd been space and opportunity to reconnect with nature, right or reconnect with Earth. What what is out there for us and what can we take advantage as individuals and as fathers and husbands and family men to get out there with our kids and expose them to all the beauty that nature has to offer. So when I think about that I think about it long terms of an opportunity to get out and opportunity to disconnect an opportunity to expose my children to something very beautiful, you know, whether it's the mountains the beaches or off. Or any other outdoor activity when I really like when I go up there is there's no even if you want to use your phone sometimes I mean, you can't change it. So nobody's going to interrupt you, you know, like there's this this place. I like to go camping and it's like it's in a canyon, you know, so you're surrounded by mountains and there's no way that you could call anybody. You know, you're just you're just strep right there. But I mean actually right now as I'm saying that I was able to hack the system one time when how long in there because my car has OnStar, you know, and I started that satellite and then I remember when time just just to see if I could do it, you know, I was actually able to make a call from from my OnStar in my truck, you know, but other than that when I take like my kids and then all of a sudden they're they're phone stopped stopped working wage. You know that my phone. Yep, that's how it is. You know, I mean, it's like well we'll go deep into the I like going like deep into where where it's like deep in the mountains, you know, cuz I was going to say that like I've noticed right now. Okay. I'm thinking of this one place in particular in Azusa where there's a like a creek and I do notice that there's a lot of a lot of us are a lot of Latinos right there, you know along the creek in the other example, you know, like they go right there and and you know, take their food and right there, you know, and that's a big choice because we were kids. I remember my uncle used to take us to the radio was called to say that I remember to somebody real little too will take your Hibachi Little Grill and then and it's funny really, we would my my father and my uncles and they will get the six packs back. You know, they had the six packs of a Bud Light or Budweiser and it put them inside there. He'll cuz a while so cold. Yeah, that was dead. Journeymen and you know it was cool. It would be in the Real by you know, taking nice little cold dip in there and then the the senioritis and the seals and the father's would be like cracking the sword the beers and I thought yeah, there's cool. You know, it's family you brings you bait. They they they they took an opportunity to expose us as little kids to you know, something like that are six packs on put on a river.

Carol Kane about the center that's on the side of the former willow run World War Two bomber plan. The team has added a a lot of additional environments, we call them. So we have a rule environment. We can simulate an urban canyon environment with switch back roads up the side of a mountain. We have the ability to flood lanes with water, and and really challenge the camera systems and the and the software to see if it can make it through. So now instead of testing on just the track or targeting your solution to solve one particular problem. The vehicle goes out on a mission. I'm leaving home. I'm leaving my subdivision. I'm entering a roadway getting on the freeway, and I'm coming back home. Oh, you have been involved from a career wise and its technology space for while. I know you started at General Motors, right? How did you end up at ACM? Well, the journey was interesting one initially. I was part of the core team that created the onstar business for General Motors. So we took on star from a dealer installed aftermarket device to factory hardened and that got me in the in the crosshairs of the connected vehicle world, and it's been disgraced ever since when the. When the board reached out to me to see if I was interested in the president and CEO job for the American Center for mobility. I just couldn't say no, it's right in my wheelhouse. Given you this now your career, basically, how do you think we're position in our region to be the mobility capital of the world going forward? We know where the auto capital, and there's other places now for mobility, Silicon Valley other places looking at it. How was Michigan position for the mobility capital? It's a really difficult question. We have all of the right elements. We have certainly have the brain trust. We had the infrastructure. We have the research and educational to Saudis to challenge anyone in the world. But you have to bring the business here. And I'm all about bringing the business here. We have the right economic environment. And we do all the right things. Another thing we're doing out at the centers were putting up a technology park that presents companies with the opportunity to have the kind of space they need. So when you say technology part described it a little bit more. What does that tell? Well, we're going to have a purpose built education center there. It's sort of like a satellite campus for helping create the next generation of workforce. That's coming into the business will have the our world headquarters will be in the technology park where current re currently recruiting other. Brand name.

"Well, let's actually find out what's going on, especially in children. There's that there's panda's which is a brain encephalitis caused by strip that has children are susceptible to which can cause like immediate behavioral changes. Right. I wonder if there was something like a strip outbreak. I think it was just fragile masculinity, but what possibly. Just to just depend fear of witching Zack. Aki wants to know is antibiotic resistance, a critical issue, heck yes. Okay. Oh, I can say hell hell yet even say yes. We don't cuss on our guests. So this is new the microphone? Fuck. Yes. It's a huge problem. Oh my God. It is. It is one of the scariest problems for sure. Like antibiotic-resistant strep in or staff in hospitals is massively huge antibiotic resistant. My dad got sepsis from antibiotic resistant UTI infection. It was awful antibiotic resistant to rookie Lucy's is Terry. XT RTD. It's what they call it. And what about Mercer Mercer. Exactly. That's staphylococcus aureus in. So now the the fixed that is stopped taking antibiotics, medium viruses. Yeah. So there's definitely like the the doctors shouldn't be prescribing antibiotics for things that they don't know our bacterial. But a large part of the problem too is like the agriculture industry and they're, they use antibiotics profile prophylactically. So we're just going to give all of our cows antibiotics so they don't get sick. And so- prophylactic antibiotic uses a huge issue a well that is helped driving it. So it's not. It's kind of the same thing when you talk about like, how can we solve climate change or stop putting trash everywhere like, yes, we have personal responsibilities, but there's also this systemic responsibility that is not being addressed as much. Right. So on the personal side of things, if you are prescribed antibiotic for something, take the entire course of it, don't don't save a few pills for own case. Next time I have us do that lady that people will do that all the time. Don't do that. Take. Every single pill because that what that does is it basically when you take, let's say, three quarters of your antibiotics, you're gonna kill. This is very basic, but three quarters of the bacteria in your body and your your, your body will fight off the rest of it, but those or it might just be selecting the ones that are resistant. Strongest ones are like, yeah. Oh my God. It's the people who are left at your party at like two in the morning and the worst people go home. Oh, yeah, exactly. I should've left forever ago. Yeah. Yeah. So, okay. So keep kicking him out. It's funny in our healthcare system is such a beautiful thing that I have friends who are like actors who don't have health insurance who are like, oh, if I get strep throat, I just order fish antibiotics online, and you're like, oh, America.

Jon Wurster an Stephanie Hancock. Both wanted to know, is there any care for the Lone Star tick bite that makes you allergic to me? And do you think there's a possibility that the Lone Star take is Evelyn's way of helping with global warming moving to a red meat produced society? Oh, that's a fun thing to think about, but it's that's just not how evolution works, but you can answer this. Take one. I actually do love every time. It's always brought up as like, oh, every time that someone says, oh, the red meat allergy from onstar. They're like, maybe that's a and I'm like, well, yeah, it's kind of a good thing. I mean, it could be a good thing. So the almost dying part and not a good plus I have. I have some anecdotal evidence, not not personally, but so it seems that the strength of the allergy varies depending on who you are and it might depend on what tick bit you, but some people, it seems to be last decades or even a lifetime. And anytime they re expose themselves from red meat, it's a really bad reaction like NFL axis at cetera..
