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.

- State senator: PG&E should be “split” if negligence caused fires
By David R. Baker - Tuesday Oct 17, 2017
The fires still burning across the Wine Country could pose an existential threat to California’s largest utility, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. PG&E's stock price is down 17 percent since Oct. 11, when state fire officials said they would investigate whether PG&E’s power lines, blown by fierce winds, played a role in sparking the fires. One analyst estimated the company could face liabilities topping $12 billion if investigators blame PG&E. Indeed, what appears to be the first lawsuit faulting PG&E for the fires was filed Tuesday by a Santa Rosa couple who lost their home.

- This Vertical Farm Wants To Be An Agriculture Company, Not A Tech Company
By Eillie Anzilotti - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
FreshBox Farms is going big by focusing on harvests, not proprietary growing systems.
As the indoor farming industry has taken off in the last several years–over the next 10 years, indoor farming is expected to account for 50% of leafy green production, and grow to a $42 billion industry–it’s become apparent that it’s as much about technology as it is about agriculture. Bowery, a new startup operating out of an old warehouse building in Kearney, New Jersey, developed a sensor-based proprietary technology, called FarmOS, specifically to support the venture by determining necessary nutrient levels, as well as when crops are ready for harvesting. And in South San Francisco, Plenty is growing produce via a tech-supported vertical farming model that has already received $26 million from tech investors like Bezos Expeditions and Innovation Endeavors.
