The U.S. auto safety regulator on Thursday said it was closely watching Tesla’s release of a software version intended to allow its cars to drive themselves, saying it stood ready to protect the public against safety risks.

Tesla on Tuesday night released a beta, or test version, of what it calls a “Full Self Driving” software upgrade to an undisclosed number of “expert, careful” drivers. The release prompted online posts by excited recipients who shared video snippets of their car driving supposedly autonomously on city streets at night.

During a Tesla earnings call on Wednesday, Chief Executive Elon Musk said the latest upgrade was planned to be widely released by the end of this year, with the system becoming more robust as it collected more data.

How to Build a $60K Emergency Fund

In 2018, Yai Vargas decided to quit her job and become the CEO of her own company, The Latinista.

To some coworkers, her decision may have seemed abrupt. But Vargas had been putting the pieces in place to walk away from corporate America for several years.

It wasn’t without a little sacrifice: For more than a decade, Vargas hustled to pay off her student loan debt then save a $60,000 emergency fund so she’d be ready to leap when the time was right. She also downsized her apartment, sold her home and worked with The Financial Gym to make sure all her finances were in order.

But when it came to spending, Vargas still had one habit that she decided not to kick: her daily latte.

Below, Vargas shares how she developed a “hack” so she could treat herself to expensive coffee drinks — without sacrificing any savings.

Deepfake bot on Telegram is violating women by forging nudes from regular pics

A free, easy-to-use deepfake bot found on the Telegram messenger app has victimized seemingly hundreds of thousands of women by replacing the clothed parts of their bodies in photos with nudity. More than 100,000 of these nonconsensual sexual images have been posted publicly online, but the bot has produced hundreds of thousands more that haven’t been traced. 

A website promoting the bot claimed that more than 700,000 images of women have been manipulated to replace their clothing with nudity, as of Thursday, and that more than 100,000 abusers have uploaded images to the bot. Those numbers couldn’t be independently verified. 

The victims are mostly private individuals, women whose photos were taken off social media or pulled from a personal stash of pics, according to a research report about the bot Tuesday, which traced more than 100,000 publicly posted images of victims of this bot. Some victims had originally been photographed

The recipient of an email that purportedly detailed a business arrangement between a Chinese company and the Biden family confirmed on Thursday that the email is “genuine” and said the family “aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions” from foreign entities. 

Tony Bobulinski, who is listed as a recipient of the email first published by the New York Post, offered further detail in a statement to Fox News on the correspondence, which references a proposed equity split: “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”

“The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference

Dining inside restaurants: Customers weigh the ethics, risks and responsibilities

If a restaurant can’t satisfy her minimum requirements, Kalemkerian, 43, won’t patronize its patio. She doesn’t even have a checklist for indoor dining, which resumed in New York City on Sept. 30. For her, that option isn’t on the table.

“I don’t see myself dining indoors ever, not until I’m vaccinated. The idea of being indoors in most situations bothers me,” said Kalemkerian, a human rights officer at the United Nations. “A situation where I’m eating, other people are eating, they’re breathing and there are walls around us basically freaks me out.”

As temperatures drop and patios start to close, diners across the country will soon have to make up their own minds. They are not easy decisions. There are no foolproof calculations. The federal government has not issued a set of universal, mandatory rules to guide the nation’s hundreds of thousands of restaurants. The Centers for Disease Control and
