Research and advisory firm Lux Research has charted the 12 major automakers on business execution and technical value, and noted if the company has a positive or negative view on the advent of self-driving.

Tesla and BMW aren t far behind, but the report claims that the two companies have a wait and see attitude to self-driving, rather than actively pushing for its arrival.

German automaker Audi has a decent technical value rating, but lacks the investment or business execution its German rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz have achieved.

Fiat Chrysler recently partnered with Google, providing them with 100 vans, and may have plans to create similar partnerships with Uber and Amazon.

While it is worrying to see companies like Renault-Nissan and Audi not invest in self-driving as much as rivals, we are still three years away from any concrete legislation that allows driverless cars on the road.

Rivals accuse Google of skewing its search results, and women have sued the company for alleged discrimination in pay and promotions.

Liberals complain the platforms are enabling hate speech; conservatives say they are suppressing free speech.

Amazon, Facebook, and Google have all held steady in daily favorability polls conducted by research firm Morning Consult over the past year, through Tuesday.

The ratings wiggle a bit from week to week, but the companies haven't seen any decline.

When consumers are unhappy, those numbers can slip into negative territory, meaning more respondents hold an unfavorable view of a company than a favorable one.

On Thursday, AT CEO Randall Stephenson spent an hour in Trump Tower, the day after President-elect Donald Trump trashed CNN, which AT wants to buy as part of its proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner.Trump is said to still oppose the deal, which he slammed on the campaign trail.Trump's negative view of the merger comes "partly from his frustration with CNN, which is owned by Time Warner," according to Bloomberg.That negative view seems to only have intensified since CNN reported on an unverified dossier of Trump that included allegations that he was compromised by Russian intelligence agents.

At a press conference Wednesday, Trump refused to take a question from CNN's Jim Acosta.

"I'm not going to give you a question.

You're fake news," Trump replied, though he did, later, take a question from a different CNN reporter.Trump's powerAs president, Trump will not have the authority to kill the merger of AT and Time Warner himself.

There are two potential government groups that might have a say in whether the deal goes through: the FCC and the Department of Justice DOJ .The FCC is the bigger threat, since it has a broad mandate to kill mergers it thinks aren't in the "public interest," and can also put restrictions on the merger.

The DOJ, on the other hand, has to actually prove the deal is anti-competitive, which is a taller order.However, AT believes the merger won't be under the jurisdiction of the Federal Communications Commission.

Theresa May’s first announcement of 2017 suggested that her Government will make housing a key priority in the year ahead, building some 14 new ‘garden’ towns and villages across England.

Recent Office for National Statistics figures on productivity revealed that the construction industry is performing close to the bottom of the pile, with manufacturing and financial services far outperforming it.

Add an apparent lack of a collaboration and improvement culture and a frequently dysfunctional training, funding and delivery model.

How do we find a solution?

Housing, public buildings and transport infrastructure are all essential to our lives and we wouldn’t survive without them, but if you were to rank digital uptake in construction against other sectors, only agriculture and hunting place lower.

They range from collaborative software platforms to measurement, design, forecasting and human resources tools, all contributing to the efficient management and delivery of projects.

President-elect Donald Trump is still against the $85 billion merger of AT and Time Warner because he thinks "it would consolidate too much power in the media industry," according to Bloomberg's Gerry Smith and Joshua Green, who cite "people close to" Trump.

"Trump told a friend in the last few weeks that he still considers the merger to be a bad deal," Bloomberg reports.

Steve Bannon, a close Trump adviser, also opposes the deal, according to the report.Shares of Time Warner fell roughly 3% on the news, but have recovered some ground.Trump's negative view of the deal comes "partly from his frustration with CNN, which is owned by Time Warner, one of the people said," according to Bloomberg.Trump hasn't spoken publicly about the merger in a significant way since he railed against it on the campaign trail.

"As an example of the power structure I'm fighting, AT is buying Time Warner and thus CNN — a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few," Trump said in a speech in October.But recent reports out of the Trump transition team were more favorable to AT and Time Warner.Last month, Trump's transition team assured AT that, contrary to Trump's campaign rhetoric, the proposed merger would be treated without prejudice, according to the Financial Times.

"After talking with the president-elect's team, AT executives are confident that their deal has a good chance of passing regulatory scrutiny, people informed about the conversation said," the FT report said.The approval processStill, even with Trump's negative stance, it's not apparent what effect he would have on the merger's approval.In November, AT told Wall Street not to worry about it.At RBC's Technology, Internet, Media and Telecommunications Conference in New York, AT management suggested there wouldn't be any trouble with the merger.One big reason AT was optimistic at the conference was because the company believes the merger won't be under the jurisdiction of the Federal Communications Commission.

"The only scenario in which the FCC would have jurisdiction is if Time Warner transfers certain broadcast licenses to AT," wrote RBC analyst Jonathan Atkin, who viewed the presentation by AT's Chris Womack and Michael Black.

Data engineers and data scientists each occupy critical roles.

Their goal is to answer critical business questions.

Unreliable, erroneous, and incomplete data leads to answers that can’t be trusted—hence, “garbage in, garbage out.”

Therefore, the process of wrangling and cleaning data is crucial, often said to be 80% of a data scientist’s work.

Stepping back, these tasks should be viewed in the context of two key objectives:

More than 40 million people in the US alone suffer from depression and anxiety.

Less than 15 percent of those will receive treatment.

To call this an epidemic would be an understatement.

It’s app allows people to get immediate access to mental health professionals that range from coaches who use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) guidelines, to practicing doctors who can write prescriptions.

With the app, users can chat with their coaches anytime and schedule a video chat with a licensed therapist.

Last year transit information app Citymapper decided to see what would happen if it launched its own bus service, trialling a hi-tech London bus operating a single route.

Instead it's decided to operate its own taxi service, and London just granted it a operating licence.

Citymapper has released two lengthy blog posts about the bus trial from last year, with the first talking about all the good things that happened thanks to it running its own service.

Things like how minibuses are probably better for the environment and navigating London's congested streets, that buses can be fun relaxed environments, that smart buses don't need to cost the earth, that an app is all the marketing you really need, and more.

The second post takes a more negative view of things, describing the challenges associated with actually running a bus service - particularly with relation to (supposedly outdated) regulations.

Citymapper even claims that current bus regulations are still using the same nearly-200-year-old framework originally outlined for horses and carriages in 1831.

The best way to think of it is like a larger version of the UberPool carpooling service, or a smaller version of Citymapper's minibuses.

Essentially it'll involve a fleet of people carriers that can hold up to eight passengers, driven by licensed private hire drivers.

Citymapper likens it to buses, taxis, and metro lines, in that it will operate on a network of routes with pre-determined stops, but with the convenience of being able to book a seat and guarantee you'll be able to get a lift.

Transport for London got back to me with a statement confirming it had granted Citymapper a private hire operating licence after "after meeting all the necessary requirements.”

While Citymapper's exact plans have yet to be announced, it does mean the company is at least considering the prospect of operating its own private hire service.

Time Warner stock hit a 52-week high after Ajit Pai, President Trump's FCC chairman, said he didn't think his agency would review its $85 billion merger with AT, during an interview at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.Pai said "he understood the companies have structured the deal so that no airwave licenses would be transferred, something that would trigger a broad FCC review," the Wall Street Journal reported.

That is the regulatory hook for FCC review, Pai said, according to The Journal.

My understanding is that the deal won t be presented to the commission.

The stock was up 1.4% in the aftermath of the news.The AT Warner deal has invited a lot of media speculation, as Trump railed against it on the campaign trail, and has repeatedly taken shots at CNN, which Time Warner owns.

Trump has met with AT CEO Randall Stephenson multiple times since taking office.But AT has maintained that it is optimistic the deal will survive government review.There are two potential government groups that might have a say in whether the deal AT goes through: the FCC and the Department of Justice DOJ .The FCC is by far the bigger threat, since it has a broad mandate to kill mergers it thinks aren't in the "public interest," and can also put restrictions on the merger.

Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg released a statement in the wake of the ongoing Cambridge Analytica scandal.

He then revealed Facebook's version of events between the social network and the firm hired by the Trump administration for his presidential election.

In 2013, six years after Facebook launched its platform for in-site app developers, Aleksandr Kogan created a personality quiz that received data from 300,000 users, along with that of each user's respective networks and friends.

Facebook released an update in 2014 to keep users from malicious apps so that for an app like Kogan's to pull the same data, friends of users would have to release that info of their own volition, and not in a second-hand manner.

The data in question has been a topic of focus in an investigation into meddling by Russia in the 2016 US presidential election.

Zuckerberg, who earlier this year, promised to fix issues within the network he created over a decade ago his personal challenge for the year, said the company has already taken important steps to prevent more bad actors from accessing people's information.
