Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin By Rosie Wolf Williams, Next Avenue My mother told me many times over the years that she had a will, and I believed her. When she passed away, we discovered that her will was 40 years old — and completely useless. To start, she had never signed the copy we found, and the man named to be executor had died a decade before she did. Grandchildren born after she wrote the will were not mentioned, and items left to some people had long ago been passed on to others. Such problems are not uncommon, because many older adults and their children don't want to talk about death. Of course, you could simply ask your parents or others about their wishes, but how do you make sure the transition after they have died is smooth, without sounding harsh or greedy? Who Needs a Will? "The question in so many minds is, what happens if my parent dies without a will? The short answer is, it depends," says Rebecca Goldfarb, … [Read more...] about Mom, Do You Have A Will?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Waymo today announced the results of a new study where they claim their Waymo driver system outperformed a model of an idealized top-grade human driver at taking evasive action to avoid crashes caused by somebody else. If that’s true, the next question is, what’s holding Waymo back from full scale commercial deployment? Earlier, Waymo published a study where they recreated all fatal accidents which took place in the recent past in Chandler , Arizona, where they have operations. In the simulator, they had their system relive those accidents, playing the role of the at-fault driver (where they easily prevented all of them) and also playing the role of the driver who was hit or forced into a crash (where they avoided many of them with good defensive driving.) To go further, they have both improved their driver system to include evasive action — swerving and other maneuvers to avoid the crash. They also created a … [Read more...] about Waymo Claims Superhuman Ability To Dodge Accidents, So Why Aren’t They Launched?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin At the start of the Issey Miyake SS22 collection unveiling today in Paris, there was a moment of silence for the designer who passed away from liver cancer in August. With the lights down low at the Paris Convention Center, his photo appeared on screens around the room with a quote by Miyake and the sound of birds chirping. The quote read: “I believe there is hope in design. Design evokes surprise and joy in people.” The audience erupted in applause. A solo pianist took to the baby grand piano on the runway and began to play the keys, as well as the treble strings, dampers, and bass strings. On every seat placement was a note from Satoshi Kondo, lead designer with words in memory of Mr. Miyake. “We see design as a process driven by curiosity, built upon a comprehensive exploration-brining joy, wonder, and hope to life, and of course with a touch of playfulness.” Themed A Form That Breathes , the collection is all … [Read more...] about The First Issey Miyake Paris Fashion Week Show Without The Designer
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin For LaMara Davidson , becoming a professional chef was a happy accident. As the daughter of an African American serviceman and a Korean émigré mother, LaMara grew up eating a blend of soul food and Korean food that has become her signature cooking style. She calls it “Seoul food.” Some of her earliest memories are sitting on the kitchen floor peeling garlic while watching her mother prepare napa cabbage for kimchi, helping her mother make mandu (Korean dumplings), taking in the sounds and smells of kalbi sizzling on the grill, and learning how to make turnips and mustard greens from her paternal grandmother. Food has always been a huge part of LaMara’s life, but her path to becoming a chef wasn’t a direct one. She started as an artist manager for Sony and hosted dinner parties to impress potential clients. “I didn’t have a big manager bank account, so I cooked my own food and held meetings at my house,” LaMara said. Her … [Read more...] about Chef LaMara Davidson Is Relaunching Her Career At 50, And She’s Never Been Happier
