The company has suggested that it is now “doing more testing than we have ever done,” as Arnold tells me. Upfront, this new testing system requires resource-intensive validation studies, to ensure that the entire system is functioning correctly. But after these studies are performed, the company’s food will undergo substantially less food testing than it was under Samadpour. As with Samadpour’s testing program, there are complicated pros and cons to Marsden’s system, but as one neutral food-safety observer says, “If you’re in a courtroom and you listen to both sides of the argument, it’s hard to say that anyone is 100% correct. It’s all wrapped up in a lot of academic infighting and politics.” … [Read more...] about Is It Safe To Eat At Chipotle Now?
5. The technology. GM’s initial approach to autonomous driving was to incrementally add features to existing vehicles, gradually making drivers more comfortable with deferring to a computer. But when Ammann nailed down the acquisition of Cruise in March, it marked an investment into the more radical all-at-once strategy being pursued by the likes of Google and Uber. Launched in 2013, Cruise has built a complex array of software and hardware that uses artificial intelligence to pilot a car. While in-house GM engineers were working on their own fully autonomous system, Ammann and Barra came to believe that Cruise was further ahead—and so they jumped. Cruise CEO Vogt has been obsessed with self-driving cars since childhood, and designed his first autonomous vehicle for a state fair at the age of 13.

After he pivoted to the bigger idea of operating a fleet of … [Read more...] about Mary Barra Is Remaking GM’s Culture—And The Company Itself

And that’s just above ground. Below the surface, the park will be an engineering marvel. Temperatures hit 150 degrees on the railway, meaning the 225 trees and 28,000 plants will need protection from the heat. To ensure the vegetation in the park stays healthy, a cooling system will route chilled glycol around the planters. An irrigation network, rainwater storage, and ventilation system will also be integrated into what’s essentially a massive green roof. “It’s like cultivating an oasis over a desert,” says Thomas Woltz, principal of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architecture (NBW), the firm enlisted to design Hudson Yards’ landscape. … [Read more...] about Landscape Architect Thomas Woltz Is Coming To A Park Near You
