Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav booed at Boston University commencement speech

Speaking of commencement speeches, Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav gave the commencement speech at Boston University.

BU students booed and turned their backs on David Zaslav, president and CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, as he delivered the commencement address at Nickerson Field, the school stadium.

I’m also a fan of people speaking up for what they believe in.

Rivian to adopt NACS

Scooter Doll (what a name!) at Electrek:

The American automaker recently signed an agreement with Tesla to enable access to the latter’s Supercharger Network in the US and Canada. Beginning in spring 2024, current and new R1T or R1S owners will have access to an adapter that will allow charging on the Tesla Supercharger network.

That settles it: our next car will be a Rivian R1S.

YouTube Lowers Threshold For Monetizing Channels

Putting this out into the universe: I will monetize my channel by the end of the year.

San Francisco’s Bay Bridge Lights Go Dark

From back in March:

Leo Villareal, the artist who designed the Bay Lights, said that he was optimistic the organization would raise enough money to reinstall the light sculpture, which, he said, was inspired by the patterns of the water and the fog surrounding the bridge.

Watching it go dark on Sunday, Mr. Villareal added, was “bittersweet.”

“There’s a certain sadness to not have that be part of the landscape,” he said. “It’s really become part of the fabric of San Francisco.”

This piece was installed right around when I moved up to the Bay Area. It reminds me of when I started my new life in the Bay Area. It is sad to see the lights turned off.

A Map of Places in the US with the Same Name

I noticed when we lived in the Bay Area, a lot of cities had the same name of other, more popular cities. For example, in the Bay Area, there are cities named Brisbane (not Australia), Pittsburg (not Pennsylvania), Richmond (not Virginia), Newark (not New Jersey) and others that are not coming to mind.

I immediately thought of that fact when I came across this site.
