Also called self-driving cars, autonomous cars have been making the news recently. Chief among them are Google's self-driving cars. Google's driverless cars have traveled over 480,000 kilometers (300,000 mi) with only two accidents, both of which were caused by humans. But self-driving cars aren't new. In fact, their concepts have arguably been around since the days of Leonardo da Vinci, who invented a spring-powered cart with a programmable steering device.

It and 11 other medical agencies at Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Stanford and Harvard universities and others are currently working towards “actionable outcomes” on how to protect the heart from Covid-related damage.

Experts in pulmonary rehabilitation at the Hp2 Lab at the Grenoble Alps University in France suggest that for survivors of the virus, physical exercises such as walking are essential to regaining muscle tissue – including those in the coronary system – lost due to being horizontal for a long period. Unlike organs such as the lungs and skin, once the heart suffers significant damage it has little ability to repair itself.

Viral illnesses

Echoing many specialists, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Trinity College and RCSI professor emeritus of preventive cardiology Ian Graham believes it is too early to draw ironclad conclusions on how the virus directly affects the coronary system.

Major American retailers including Wal-Mart, Target (TGT, Fortune 500), and Kmart all opened their stores on Thanksgiving to get a jump on the holiday gift shopping season. Wal-Mart even went as far as to open its stores two hours earlier this year than it did last. But Costco (COST, Fortune 500) refused to join the trend of "Black Friday creep" and kept its doors shut. Chief executive Craig Jelinek thought giving his workers a day off was more important than increasing his company's bottom line.

《蓝色茉莉》(Blue Jasmine):按年代顺序排列,本片属于导演伍迪?艾伦(Woody Allen)自我更新晚期的作品。不过,从艺术角度看,该片算得上是伍迪?艾伦作品中最优秀的喜剧之一。该片的卖点是凯特?布兰切特(Cate Blanchett)的出彩演绎,曾在《欲望号街车》中出演布兰奇?杜布瓦(Blanche DuBois)的凯特?布兰切特这一次出演女主角茉莉,离婚后精神状态有些癫狂。亚历克?鲍德温(Alec Baldwin)在剧中扮演茉莉的丈夫,是一个类似于马多夫(Bernie Madoff)的行骗者。其他人物方面,在经历了欺骗和失望后,莎莉?霍金斯(Sally Hawkins)、安德鲁?戴斯?克莱(Andrew Dice Clay)鲍比?坎纳瓦尔(Bobby Cannavale)以及路易?C.K(Louis C.K.)等人扮演的角色最终都找到了自己的方向。
