Richard Feloni, provided by Published 1:38 pm CDT, Friday, November 2, 2018 Business Insider/Jessica Tyler Stanley McChrystal is a retired four-star general in the US Army who led America's Joint Special Operations Command and NATO's forces in the War in Afghanistan. In his new book "Leaders," he explains how revisiting reverence of Confederate general Robert E. Lee helped convince him that our conception of leadership is too reliant on mythology. Leaders and followers both need to remove the pedestal we give to people in power, he said — and this insight made him rethink his own legacy. He told us what he learned about leadership from his enemy in Iraq, Al Qaeda leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, as well as what he learned from his forced resignation following a "Rolling Stone" article. When General Stanley McChrystal began working on his memoir after retiring as a four-star general in 2010, he realized that his perception of himself as a leader was different from … [Read more...] about After treasuring a painting of Robert E.

I drove a Chevrolet Bolt EV for a weekend at the end of July. The version I drove cost $US43,905. The base price for the Bolt’s standard trim is $US37,495. It was the first time I’d driven an electric vehicle in real-world conditions for more than an hour. I was impressed with the Bolt’s ride quality, acceleration, handling, and driver assistance features. But when I tried to charge the vehicle, I realised the limitations of our current charging infrastructure. When General Motors’ Chevrolet Bolt EV was released in late 2016, it was billed as the car that would take electric vehicles mainstream. One of the biggest obstacles to widespread electric vehicle adoption has been range anxiety. If an electric car can’t handle a commute to work and a couple of errands without approaching an empty battery, it’s difficult for consumers to rely on it as an everyday vehicle. With a $US37,495 price tag (before a $US7,500 tax credit) and 238-mile range, … [Read more...] about I drove a $44,000 Chevy Bolt for a weekend and saw just how far electric cars have come — but I also discovered a glaring problem
HOUSTON -- The journey to outer space for American astronauts for the past seven years has begun at a Soviet-era launch site in Kazakhstan, deep in Central Asia. There, they pay homage to Russian cosmonauts and graciously participate in the rituals of their hosts, even the tradition of urinating on the right rear tire of the bus that ferries them to the rocket. The landscape is barren and desiccated, resembling the moon or some distant celestial body, a reminder that the astronauts are a long way from Cape Canaveral. Now, human space flight is returning to the place where the American Space Age was born.As soon as this year, NASA expects to end its reliance on Russia and launch American pilots from U.S. soil for the first time since the final shuttle mission in 2011. But this time, the astronauts will fly on rockets unlike any NASA has ever seen -- built and operated by companies trying to turn spaceflight into a sustainable business.These first flights will be the fruits of $6.8 … [Read more...] about What does it mean to be a NASA astronaut in the age of Elon Musk and Richard Branson?

A forthcoming documentary suggests a Hobart woman who's serving a life sentence in prison for her role in two killings may have been a serial killer who also fed the remains of her dismembered lover to neighbors at a barbecue in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.Investigation Discovery, a crime-themed cable network that reaches 85 million U.S. households, will air the true crime thriller "Dead North" about Kelly Cochran, a Northwest Indiana woman who pleaded guilty to the 2016 murder of her husband, Jason Cochran, at their home on the 7100 block of Mississippi Street of Hobart. Cochran told Hobart police she injected her husband with heroin and smothered him with a pillow as revenge for the murder of her lover Christopher Regan, who she lured to her other home in Iron River, Michigan, with the promise of sex. Her husband burst out of the basement and shot Regan in the head with a .22 caliber rifle during the act, which the couple had plotted after making a "pact to kill off … [Read more...] about Documentary: Hobart woman may have fed dismembered lover to neighbors at barbecue, killed up to nine people
