Real truck drivers, question :: American Truck Simulator General Discussions
RavenFB has American Truck Simulator Feb 6, 2016 @ 1:29am
This game doesn't really line up with the realities of trucking. No weigh stations, no DOT, no logs, no pre/post-trip inspections, no real trip planning, no having to worry about realistic HOS (Hours of Service) regulations, no dealing with weight/height restrictions or "bridge laws", gross and axle weights aren't even addressed, nor are things like 5th wheel and tandem placement. Moreover, this game can't replicate the monotony of actually driving these trips. In game, it takes significantly less time to drive from one place to another. Driving for 8 uninterrupted across the desert just to have to find a place to park for half an hour before you can finish out the last three hours of your allotted 11, because some halfwit in Washington makes an arbitrary decision to pass some new FMCSA regs, isn't quite as interesting as you may think after you've done it a hundred times. This is a game that embraces the romantacized ideal of trucking, while pointedly ignoring the prickly realities. That's ok, though, because it wouldn't be anywhere near as interesting or entertaining to the average person to play it if it were realistic, and truckers would steer clear simply because, well, I've already been doing that job all day. Incidentally, I can tell you from experience that the KWT680 is pretty dang well represented in this game. I'm typing this with my laptop propped on the steering wheel of my '16 T680. I kinda wish mine had the nifty GPS in the center console, but other than that, the interior is so well done that my sitting here playing the game, and looking at a digital representation of my dashboard being played in front of the identical, real-world dashboard is in danger of causing a serious meta-reality crisis.

Bill Joy - Wikipedia | https://en.wikipedia.org/
In his 2013 book Makers, author Chris Anderson credited Joy with establishing "Joy's theory" based on a quip: "No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else [other than you]."[11] His argument was that companies use an inefficient process by not hiring the best employees, only those they are able to hire. His "law" was a continuation of Friedrich Hayek's "The Use of Knowledge in Society" and warned that the competition outside of a company would always have the potential to be greater than the company itself.[12]

America Is The 22nd 'Best' Country In The World For Women | Zero Hedge
America Is The 22nd 'Best' Country In The World For Women http://ift.tt/2AuoXuj

To the surprise of many, Saudi Arabia recently announced it would end its longstanding ban on women driving with the change set to come into effect from June 2018. That ban has served as a major symbol of female oppression throughout the world and it has also done huge damage to the kingdom's reputation for years. The situation could improve even further in the years ahead with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman pushing to implement more reforms in order to return the country to moderate Islam.

However, as Statista's Niall McCarthy points out, Saudi Arabia isn't alone in how it treats women and a new index has gauged the status of women in different countries.

You will find more statistics at Statista

The global Women, Peace and Security Index was launched by The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security and the Peace Research Institute of Oslo.

It measures women's well-being by assessing various factors such as inclusion, justice and security in 153 countries.

Iceland comes first, followed by Norway and Switzerland.

The U.S. is in 22nd position and its lack of paid-maternity leave is one possible reason it trails other developed countries. Along with Papua New Guinea, the U.S. is the only country worldwide that doesn't offer new mothers paid maternity leave.

Countries that are less peaceful and unstable tended to score poorly in the index with Afghanistan and Syria both rock bottom.

Yemen is also embroiled in conflict and it comes third-last. Pakistan is amongst the worst countries in the index and various studies have shown that domestic violence and "honor killings" are widespread there. Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai is a key example of just how dangerous Pakistan can get for women. She was shot and nearly killed in 2012 for publicly speaking about women's right to an education.
