SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California regulators are embracing a General Motors recommendation that would help makers of self-driving cars avoid paying for accidents and other trouble, raising concerns that the proposal will put an unfair burden on vehicle owners.If adopted, the regulations drafted by the California Department of Motor Vehicles would protect these carmakers from lawsuits in cases where vehicles haven't been maintained according to manufacturer specifications.That could open a loophole for automakers to skirt responsibility for accidents, injuries and deaths caused by defective autonomous vehicles, said Armand Feliciano, vice president for the Association of California Insurance Companies.

- Sage grouse conservation changes praised, provoke alarm
By MEAD GRUVER and MATTHEW BROWN, Associated Press - Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
The ground-dwelling sage grouse has lengthy, pointed tail feathers and is known for the male's elaborate courtship display in which air sacs in the neck are inflated to make a popping sound.The proposed changes, the result of a 60-day review of the plan by Zinke's agency, could give states wiggle room in areas such as setting population goals for sage grouse and drawing boundaries of recognized sage grouse habitat.Advocacy groups such as The Wilderness Society and National Wildlife Federation said the proposal was a backdoor attempt to allow unfettered oil and gas development that ignored previous scientific studies showing that drilling too close to sage grouse breeding areas would harm the birds.The birds inhabit parts of 11 states including large swaths of Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Nevada — big ranching states that include areas with vast wind energy and gas drilling potential.Areas where sage grouse habitat and gas drilling overlap include the upper Green River Basin of western Wyoming, home of some of the biggest onshore natural gas fields in the U.S.Jonah Energy LLC, recognizes the existence of sage grouse winter range in the southern part of its proposed gas field about 200 miles (321.85 kilometers) northeast of Salt Lake City, said Paul Ulrich, government affairs director at the Denver-based petroleum company.

“Detroit” and “An Inconvenient Sequel” posted very strong numbers in their limited openings last week, but The Weinstein Company’s “Wind River,” the directorial debut of “Hell or High Water” and “Sicario” writer Taylor Sheridan, did even better in its four-screen opening this weekend with an estimated total of $164,167.Joined by a rookie FBI agent named Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) who is not used to the oppressive weather of the Rocky Mountains, Lambert unravels a murder mystery that plunges them both deep into the savage sides of man and nature.[...] there’s “Wolf Warriors 2,” a Chinese action film about a loose cannon soldier who protects an African village from local warlords and foreign drug dealers from the Western world.[...] the big story for this film is the records it is setting in its home country, where it has grossed $406 million and passed “The Fate of the Furious” to become China’s No. 1 film of 2017.
