In the following post I’m going to discuss the article “RACISM: A conversation changer,” in relation to what I learned in class.

        The article I have chosen to talk about is “After serving half his sentence for sexual assault, Brock Turner returns to Ohio and registers as sex offender,” published by The Associated Press.

Both Turner and the female victim attended a fraternity party near Stanford in January 2015, the victim was found unconscious behind a dumpster where two passer-byers stumbled upon Brock Turner grinding up against her unconscious naked body.

With our rapidly evolving technology, the world will soon see automobiles that drive themselves. Indeed, companies such as Google, Mercedes and Volkswagen are already testing these driverless machines (Pedwell). These cars promise to increase safety, provide mobility solutions for disabled people, ease traffic congestion and increase time for doing other activities while the vehicle drives itself. Yet, as convenient as this invention might be, it also opens the door to some ethical issues. During a test drive in February 14th 2016, Google’s Autonomous Vehicle (AV) was partly blamed for causing an accident with a bus. This incident let the government to declare that strong regulations needed to be established in matters of ethical issues with the new driverless vehicles (Pedwell). In other words, a moral code should be created and programmed into these AVs before they can be presented to the public.
