The Director of Ambulance Operations for the London Ambulance Service paid tribute to the Queen and spoke of the support the organization will be providing to bereaved people over the next few hours.

He said: “We join the rest of the country and people around the world in sending our heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family at this time of immense and deep grief for our nation.

“Her Majesty has done so much to support the NHS and emergency services throughout her long and memorable reign, and our staff and volunteers were proud and humbled to be able to support her Platinum Jubilee celebration this summer.

“While extremely saddened, I know our paramedics, 999 call handlers and other staff and volunteers feel the same pride and honor in being able to serve Her Majesty – and care for Londoners – as we mark his bequest and his funeral.

“With the increase in the number of visitors to London, we expect to be particularly busy, but we have solid plans in place to ensure that we continue to provide the best possible care to people in the capital.”

Mr Farmer added that the organization had worked closely with the Royal Household, Met Police, Cabinet Office, other ambulance services and TfL to provide the right care and support to those in need. .

He added: “Over the next few days we will have approximately 120 additional staff deployed across our 999 control rooms and on the road, increasing to 300 additional staff on duty on the day of the funeral (Monday).

“This will include teams on foot in crowded areas and in our 999 control rooms, to manage the expected increase in demand and ensure we reach the most seriously ill and injured patients as quickly as possible.”

Action mode is another new feature in the iPhone 14, and the best way to show it off is to simply watch footage with it on and off. And it’s pretty easy to do; All you need to do is press a button in the camera app while recording video, and you should see smooth, steady video, just like using a gimbal.

Climbing this slope on a path, you can see that the video is much more stable with Action mode activated. Without it, I feel like I’m veering wildly from side to side. Our iPhone 14 Pro Max review has more comparisons to check out.

Have you ever wondered what the inside of an iPhone 14 Pro Max looks like? No, don’t go and force the back of your new phone, that’s not a good idea. Instead, take a look at the iPhone 14 Pro Max teardown video above by PBKreviews (opens in a new tab)which disassembles the new device piece by piece to compare it to the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

It’s fascinating if you’re interested in what’s inside your phone rather than what it can do.

The iPhone 14’s Emergency SOS via satellite option is another new feature in Apple’s latest handset, and it’s available on all models rather than the Pro.

It currently has limited global coverage, in that it’s only available in the US and Canada, but good news is on the way: iPhone 14 satellite connectivity could be coming in more than country this year.

Dynamic Island for iPhone 14 Pro

The dynamic island is also interactive. Long-press this area to reveal more controls, such as playback, so you don’t have to keep jumping between multiple apps or swiping down from the top of the screen.

It’s getting better. As third-party developers leverage Apple’s Live Activites API, you’ll be able to see your Lyft ride status, your favorite NFL team’s score, or the ETA for your food delivery order. It’s smart, and it worked well in our testing.

iPhone 14 Pro Max

Another big new feature in the iPhone 14 is the Dynamic Island found on both Pro models. You’re going to hear this word a lot, so let’s break down what it means. Dynamic Island replaces the notch in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

This pill-shaped cutout doesn’t just house the TrueDepth camera and technology for Face ID; it provides information and changes shape on the fly. You can start a timer and see the countdown to the top of your screen, or album art for music playing or next turn for Apple Maps.

iPhone 14 Pro always-on screen

You might think from the name that the always-on display will always be…well, on. But Apple has now confirmed that there are instances where the always-on display will turn off temporarily.

There are eight, including when your iPhone is face down, in a pocket or bag, and when Low Power Mode is on, the idea being that disabling the feature at these times will help you preserve the battery life of your phone.

Aside from a few bugs and a few (unavoidable) lags, that’s pretty much all good news as far as the iPhone 14 lineup goes. In fact, there are so many positives, especially with the Pro models, that it’s hard to know where to start.

But to pick one at random, how about the iPhone 14 Pro’s new always-on display?

This shows you a low-light version of your current lock screen, allowing you to check your notifications, your iOS 16 lock screen widgets, and of course the clock.

It’s something Android phones have had a version of for a while, but none look as pretty, or show off as much at once, as Apple’s AOD.

There is also a bug that allegedly affects iMessage and FaceTime. According to 9to5Mac (opens in a new tab)this may prevent users from receiving messages and calls, or sending iMessages with the generic green bubbles to other iPhone users.

Luckily, there’s a fix for this, which we detail in our iPhone 14 release day bugs article.

So what can you expect if you have a shiny new iPhone 14 in your mitts today? Well, mostly a lot of very good things, but also a few small negatives.

We’ll start with the negatives, just because they’ve just been pointed out. For example, there seems to be an iPhone 14 activation bug that could cause the setup process to fail for some people.

This is from MacRumors (opens in a new tab), who says he saw an internal memo from Apple in which the iPhone 14 does not connect to open Wi-Fi networks during setup. The solution is to use a PC or Mac for this part of the process instead, which isn’t the most elegant solution. Hopefully Apple will fix this issue soon.

iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 14 Pro Max

It’s no surprise that so many people want to get their hands on the iPhone 14 Pro models – in fact, we think the difference between the base model and its more expensive siblings is bigger than ever. .

Why? Well, there are several reasons, including the Pro replacing the split notch with the really smart Dynamic Island, upgrading the camera to a 48MP sensor, and increasing the duration of battery life.

Here, our Global Editor Mark Spoonauer explains why the iPhone 14 Pro is so much better than the iPhone 14.

The situation isn’t just bad for people looking to buy certain iPhone 14 Pro models today either – even some people who pre-ordered these phones are being told they might not receive their handset in time. .

According to 9to5Mac, several iPhone 14 pre-orders have been delayed to the 11th hour. Many have contacted them to express their frustration with estimated delivery dates slipping to September 23. And some have even been pushed back to September 30.

In the UK, for example, where Apple stores are already open, I can order an iPhone 14 Pro now and pick it up at my local outlet tomorrow. However, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is showing as unavailable in one of the 12 nearest stores.

There are no such issues with the base iPhone 14: it’s readily available for pickup tomorrow in multiple colors and configurations.

Model Estimated delivery date (US) Estimated delivery date (UK)
iPhone 14 September 20 September 21
iPhone 14 Plus October 7 October 7
iPhone 14 Pro October 17-24 October 18-25
iPhone 14 Pro Max October 24-31 October 25-November 1

Hello and welcome to Tom’s Guide’s iPhone 14 launch day live blog.

Let’s start by talking about wait times. As the table above shows, some new iPhone 14 models are much easier to get than others. For example, if you order the base iPhone 14 today, it should ship as early as next week. But if you want the iPhone 14 Pro Max, you might have to wait until late October to get your hands on it!

Store availability is potentially better than that, but it will depend on the model you want and where you are. Either way, it’s clear that the Pro models are more in demand than ever this year.

The game of basketball has evolved over the past 75 years and with it, its reach, coverage and the way fans consume the NBA. Here’s a candid conversation with three fellow CelticsBloggers from three different generations about how being a Celtics fan has changed over the years and how age and outlook have affected their relationship with the Celtics.

Bill Sy (46 years old): Mike, you’ve seen it all, but I’m curious what your first memory is of when you got totally addicted. What was that moment when you became a fan?

Mike Dynon (71): As a child, I was a baseball/football fan and I only discovered the NBA as a teenager. My best friend read a Sports Illustrated article about Frank Ramsey, the first Celtic to fill the sixth man role. My buddy liked it so much he decided to become a Celtics fan, so so did I. It was 1965, and few games were televised at the time, but I vividly remember watching Game 7 of the Finals, Celtics-Lakers in the Garden. It was Red Auerbach’s last game as a coach. Bill Russell was immense with 25 points and 32 rebounds, and I was amazed by his shot blocking. The Celtics won 95-93 and from then on I was all in.

BS: I am always jealous of reading your articles because they are so rich in first-hand detail. My experience was very different from yours. I grew up in Saudi Arabia and the only NBA games we had were Sunday replays and the occasional VHS my uncles sent us of All-Star Weekend and the playoffs. I will never forget watching Game 5 of the 1991 Playoffs against the Pacers where Bird fractured his cheekbone before halftime and came back halfway through the third. I haven’t had a chance to see many games, but I’ve watched this one a hundred times. What interests me is that you got into it quite late in life, as a teenager.

MARYLAND: Bill, yeah, I was about 14 or 15. I grew up in Brooklyn and the Knicks were terrible most of the ’60s, so maybe I didn’t pay attention. I knew the names of some of their players and I knew the Celtics won the title every year, but that was it. There was no 24/7 media where you could easily follow a sport or a team from out of town. I started buying basketball publications and listened to games with Johnny Most on the radio. And then I went to MSG every time the Cs came in, which at the time was about five or six times a season.

SB: It’s actually a perfect transition. I think when Mike and I were growing up, we starved for any Celtics content we could find. I remember cutting out scores and articles from Sports Illustrated and making these little yearbooks about each season. Now everything is at your fingertips.

Alex, becoming a fan in the age of the internet, what attracted you?

Alex Walulik (20 years old): I think the main draw was full and total access to everything. It’s so easy and it’s always been so easy for me to YouTube a post-game interview with a player, or watch a box score to see who played well on ESPN. For my entire life, I’ve felt like I’ve had a somewhat interactive and close relationship with the team and the players simply because of the exposure and attention they receive.

I have this pretty close relationship with the team because I’ve seen almost everything Jayson Tatum has said and done. I grew up with Marcus Smart because he spent time with the organization. Even with Jaylen Brown. None of this would have been possible without social media and the internet.

SB: Mike, do you think a lack of access affected your early fandom?

MARYLAND: It probably made me more committed, because I had to work on it. After high school, I chose to go to Boston University – I wanted to go there for several reasons, but the location was one of the most important. After graduating, I moved back to Brooklyn and started working in Manhattan. There was a newsstand in Times Square that sold out-of-town newspapers, so on Mondays I stopped there on my way to the office to buy the Boston Globe. I learned a lot from Bob Ryan. Alex is right, the internet and Twitter are such valuable resources. I don’t take them for granted.

Removing paper tickets for sporting events is a mistake

SB: So that’s the heart of what I wanted to talk about. There was a mystique around your favorite players and teams. Now every little thing is sifted through. I’ve definitely become more of a fan of the front offices and the business of basketball, but sometimes I wish I didn’t have so much view behind the curtain.

AW: It’s so interesting also because a lot of people in the media want to capture what’s going on in a front office, because that’s something fans haven’t been able to experience until recently. GMs and POBOs go on podcasts, get interviewed, and have a huge presence in the media these days. Is it by choice? I think it depends on the person, but it’s the way business is done and it’s a major way to make money. All this to say that the NBA has become more of a business. It’s always been a business, but I think it operates more like a business now than it used to.

SB: True. Do you think it’s better for the game you fell in love with 60 years ago, Mike? I am ripped.

MARYLAND: Business has really always been an integral part of the NBA, the difference is that now it’s infinitely more complex. In the days of Red Auerbach, the primary goal of every franchise was to sell enough tickets just to stay in business. When a player’s contract expired, he was not a free agent. His only option was to visit Red’s office and haggle for an $8,000 contract, while Red offered $7,000. That’s why players like Tommy Heinsohn had to sell insurance in the offseason, and why Tommy and others fought to establish a players’ union and a pension plan. I miss the simplicity of those days, as well as a good quick three-on-two break that ends in a lay-up, but time flies. Basketball has evolved on and off the court. I accept that and still appreciate everything about it – even though I don’t understand the salary cap any more than I’m a wizard.

BS: I’m so curious how aware young fans these days are of the dollars and cents of it all. Even when I was in college, I don’t remember ever really hitting the salary cap. Sure, I marveled at seeing someone sign a multi-year contract, but that didn’t take into account how hard I rooted for the Celtics. Now the offseason is just as entertaining as the games.

Alex, you’ve grown to the age of tying a player’s points per game to the percentage of the team’s salary he’s on. How does that play into how you watch the game?

AW: I like to watch the game from a very analytical point of view. I’m not very keen on the salary side, but I pay attention to it because it’s something I want to do in life. But I’m certainly no expert. Where I consider myself quite knowledgeable is player analysis – and that’s how I watch the game. Does this player have this skill? Does this player need to develop in this area? It’s really a player assessment and the talent of these guys is pretty much why I watch the game. There’s just something so special about watching people master a skill and become so talented at something so difficult.

BS: Mike, how do you think the years have affected the way you enjoy the game? Has writing about it changed, for better or worse, your perspective?

MARYLAND: I’m an OG fan and blogger, and I’m proud of it. I write about the Celtics, their history and how that history relates to today. I don’t write about X’s and O’s, player ratings or salary cap maneuvers. There are more than enough other authors covering these topics. I would also pick up the NBA of the 80s in a heartbeat. Give me post-game, in-game, and referees making calls without going through the monitor.

That said, writing about gaming today has kept me in touch with current trends. As you’d expect, I’m an eye tester, but I’ve learned and understood how advanced stats, player tracking, and other metrics impact today’s NBA. So my view is better. I enjoy the game and the players today as much as I did in the past.

2022 NBA Playoffs - Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets

BS: So when this summer’s drama arrived with Kevin Durant and potentially Jaylen Brown, what was your first impression? Has being a fan for so long made you numb to roster turnover? Was Brown drafted by Boston and perhaps ‘our guy’ clouded your judgement?

MARYLAND: The first impression was “No!” Of course you’d want Durant on the Celtics – he’s a great historic player who still performs at a high level. But the price was too high at this stage of his career. He will be 34 this season and has suffered injuries for the past three years. Those in favor of the trade said Durant would secure a title for Boston. Not so. As big as KD is, he only won his two rings after joining a 73-win Warriors team that already had three all-NBA players (Curry, Thompson, Green).

Another argument was that Jaylen could leave for free agency in two years, while Durant is under contract for four years. It wouldn’t matter. KD is under contract now, but has always tried to force the Nets to trade him. What if Jaylen becomes a star in Brooklyn and Durant is unhappy again?

If the Celtics weren’t in the running yet, then maybe you’d be rolling the dice for a superstar. However, those Celtics made the final and added Brogdon (and Gallinari before he got injured) without hitting the core. They are now betting favorites to win it all. There’s no reason to give up on JB, more likely Smart or White and a slew of future top picks, when a title is already at hand.

BS: It’s a much more analytical approach than mine, Mike. I bet Alex had a more visceral response.

AW: I kind of grew up with Jaylen Brown. As a fan, I learned a lot about the game and decided to make a career out of it. So it was really just a shock because you never think it’s going to be one of your guys until it is. I have deeper thoughts on this that I have written. Once I thought about it more, my opinion went from shock to just trying to figure out the why of it all. But when the news first broke, it was mostly just a “wow” feeling.

BS: It’s funny. As I got older, I became much more sentimental. In my thirties, I was much more obsessed with results and winning. That’s all that mattered. But in my 40s, my relationship with the team is more like it was when I was a kid. The connection is more emotional. There was a time when I wanted to be a more intellectual fan who knew the cover sheet as well as the whiteboard, but today it’s become much more of a love story again.

Bill Gates Daily Wordle Strategy Differs From NYT AI Recommendations https://golfclashgemmes.com/bill-gates-daily-wordle-strategy-differs-from-nyt-ai-recommendations/ Thu, 01 Sep 2022 12:59:39 +0000 https://golfclashgemmes.com/bill-gates-daily-wordle-strategy-differs-from-nyt-ai-recommendations/ Like many of Wordle’s thousands of players, Bill Gates is addicted to the daily online word game.

Like many of Wordle’s thousands of players, Bill Gates is addicted to the daily online word game.

In a blog post on Tuesday, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft wrote that he and a group of friends play the game – and several of its variants, such as Quordle and Nerdle – daily to compare scores. The billionaire also shared his strategy for guessing the answer in four rounds or less.

“If you’ve played Wordle, you know how important it is to make your first guess strategically,” Gates wrote. “I like to start with a word that has a lot of vowels, like AUDIO or ONCE.”

The New York Times, which bought Wordle in January in a seven-figure deal, recommended a similar game plan in February: Three of the five letters in your seed word must be vowels, whether you use or not the same starting word each time. daytime.

More recently, WordleBot – a New York Times AI bot that analyzes your Wordle strategy – said the best opening guesses are SLATE, CRANE, TRACE, SLANT, CRATE AND CARTE.

Gates’ advice goes further than the Times’ recommendations. For his opening word, he specifically finds two vowels to put “in second and fourth positions, as in CAGED”. Its second-line strategy then includes usually paired consonants, such as C and H, and S and L.

The billionaire wrote that he starts each day with a new word. This likely reflects his cognitive style, according to neuroscientists – who say the way we play games can reflect our personalities, backgrounds, history and tendencies.

“Someone who is thoughtful and considered when doing Wordle [is] also more likely to take this approach to life more generally,” Catherine Loveday, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Westminster, told Newsweek in February. “Someone who makes very quick decisions in Wordle may tend to do so more in real life. – follow their instincts and instincts and maybe take more risks, but be faster and use more heuristics.”

Gates’ tactical and somewhat risky approach to play could parallel his career path. He dropped out of Harvard University in 1975 to start Microsoft, and eventually left Microsoft in 2008 to work full-time at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation has contributed billions of dollars to initiatives such as vaccine research and disease eradication.

“Whether we invest $100,000 or $100 million, the decision is always calculated,” he wrote in a September 2019 blog post, explaining how he assesses risk. “I spend a lot of time thinking, analyzing data and talking to experts to judge if we can really make a difference.”

Whether you agonize over the first word or start with the same tried and true letters, Gates has another way to get better at the game: practice. Official Wordle puzzles are only released once a day, but Gates said he wastes time on Quordle (where you guess four words simultaneously), Octordle (eight words) and Nerdle (where you type math equations) and their unlimited practice rounds.

“I’m the kind of person who will play an addictive game over and over again if given the chance,” he wrote.

There’s a cognitive reason for that: Wordle fits “the ABCs of human needs perfectly,” Douglas Gentile, a psychology professor at Iowa State University, told CNBC Make It in February.

“A is autonomy. We want to feel like we’re in control of our lives, B is belonging. We want to feel connected to others,” Gentile said. “And the C is the skill. We like to feel [we’re] good for something.”

A TRAVEL addict has revealed a ‘foolproof’ way to pack so his clothes don’t get wrinkled.

She’s traveled to over 40 countries and learned a thing or two about strategic packaging.

Speaking to the Express, she said that while it’s “best to avoid” clothes that wrinkle, there are occasions when certain items of clothing are essential for your trip.

“If you still want to pack them, you need to know the right way to avoid creases,” she told the outlet.

“Don’t overload your suitcase or your bag, it could wrinkle your clothes by crushing them against each other. »

I am a hospitality expert and we have two ways of dealing with rude customers
The best last-minute outings for the kids' summer vacation - and some are even FREE

Her first tip is to use travel vacuum bags to get all the air out of your clothes so you can put more in.

“A good idea is to use vacuum packaging [bags] to keep clothes flat,” she said.

“Also, you can use packing tapes to secure them along the folds.”

In some cases, experts believe that a vacuum sealed bag can reduce the storage space needed by 50%.

While one mum previously claimed you can even cram up to 200 items for a family of four into a single suitcase using the hack – and it can even be kept under the 20kg limit imposed by most companies aerial.

Becky also suggested rolling your clothes into a small tube-like space to avoid wrinkles.

She said, “You can roll your clothes instead of folding them. This prevents creases from forming in the fabric.

Experts from Travel and Leisure have also weighed in on the argument with their approach to the task.

They said, “To properly roll your clothes, lay the garment flat.

“Next, fold the bottom two inches of the item inside out to create a sort of pocket along one side of the garment.

“From the opposite end, roll the item tightly until you come to the pocket you have created. Fold one side of the pocket over the roll, securing it firmly.”

There are also plenty of other packing tips to follow the next time you go.

Seasoned travelers are seen using packing cubes – because they keep your outfits organized in your suitcase.

Becky said, “Use packing cubes or folders to organize your clothes and keep them from getting wrinkled.”

Over the past few years, I’ve learned a lot about theater in general and have a passion for plays and musicals that I didn’t know existed. Then the pandemic came to change everything and when I started going to more shows in my city I had to stop. That’s when I started looking for content online to keep this new interest close to me, so I found lots of documentaries, series, movies, books and podcasts

Following sites and accounts on social networks specialized in theater was something great. For sanity, I avoided watching the news, but the ones about the theater community made me happy during those tough times.

Then I started getting involved in things like writing here as a student blogger, talking about drama on a school radio show, writing about musicals, etc. And it was until this summer, when I was finally able to return to my campus, that I decided I had to take a chance and join the production company; otherwise I would regret having wasted this time for my last year.

From day one, I was so excited and nervous because I didn’t know anything technical about theater to be honest. What I appreciate the most in this workshop is that we first learn the theory about roles in a theater production, how a play is made, what exactly should be on each team and other things that have to do with the making of any production that we see on stage. And then we’re in charge of a few shows during the semester, this time it’s a dance show, a Day of the Dead event, and a junior production of In the heights.

The fact that this year we are working with In the heights, a musical that I love with all my heart makes me think that anything had to happen. Maybe it was just a coincidence or maybe it was fate, but what are the odds that I decided to join the company in my senior year, not knowing anything about what we were going to do and that I got to be part of the production of one of my favorite musicals, created by one of my favorite people in the world.

This week we started with auditions and in that process I was a member of the stage crew. At first, I was as nervous as anyone auditioning for any of the characters, because I had never done anything like this before. I think I made a few mistakes but I learned how to do it and to be honest I had fun and getting to know my classmates and colleagues at this workshop was cool.

I am so happy and lucky to be able to have the chance to be in the world of acting, to learn and to start exploring other skills. Doing theater is something I never thought I could do, because I’m not an actress, a singer and I would like to be a dancer; but as a theater lover and creative, I realized that I could be part of at least one of these groups behind a play or a musical.

Theater is an industry of people, art and hard work. I hope that in the future I might have the opportunity to work there and do something to make a show happen, because who knows if in the audience there is someone like me, who doesn’t know he can be part of that magic that everyone sees on stage.

New California school start times let kids get more sleep https://golfclashgemmes.com/new-california-school-start-times-let-kids-get-more-sleep/ Mon, 22 Aug 2022 16:00:00 +0000 https://golfclashgemmes.com/new-california-school-start-times-let-kids-get-more-sleep/ A new school year has begun, and it’s back to making sure your kids wake up in time for class.

A new school year has begun, and it’s back to making sure your kids wake up in time for class. But this year, it might be a little easier for California college students who have trouble getting out of bed.

Thanks to a new state law requiring middle and high school start times to be later than they have been in the past, most teens and tweens will get more sleep — something scientists say is crucial for their overall health.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 7 out of 10 high school students don’t get the recommended 8 to 10 hours of sleep. Sumit Bhargava, MD, a pediatric sleep medicine specialist at Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, said this was partly down to societal demands.

“Teenagers get sleepy much later in the evening than elementary school students,” he explained. “As such, a high school student going through adolescence will need a later bedtime. But, in most cases, they have to wake up relatively early to go to school, so the ‘sleep-deprived teenager has trouble waking up and then feeling drowsy or falling asleep in class.’

California law, which took effect July 1, requires classes to start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. in all public high schools and no earlier than 8 a.m. in all middle schools.

Adopt good sleeping habits

Research has shown that getting enough sleep not only improves academic performance, but may also protect against chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes, and support healthy brain development.

But what if going to school later makes your teen feel like they can go to bed later too?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

“Sleep should be considered part of a healthy lifestyle, and good sleep habits can be both taught and learned,” Bhargava said. “Something that’s key to maintaining the circadian rhythm of teens with varying sleep onset and duration is having a consistent wake-up time every morning. That, and avoiding oversleeping on weekends.”

Along with general advice that includes setting a bedtime schedule and turning off all screens, Bhargava also suggests keeping phones or tablets outside the teen’s bedroom at night.

“Research has shown that even the presence of a charger can reduce sleep duration by 20 to 30 minutes,” he said.

There is no catching up

While teens may think they can make up for lost hours of sleep over the weekend, they are unlikely to. Research has shown that it can take up to four days to recover from an hour of sleep deficit and up to nine days to eliminate sleep debt, which is the cumulative effect of the hours of sleep your body gets. requires.

“Short-term recovery happens with naps, but if your teen takes a nap late in the afternoon, it will cause a delay in falling asleep that night, setting up a cycle of decreasing duration. sleep, daytime sleepiness and increased sleep debt,” Bhargava added.

Finally, Bhargava pointed out, sleep problems are unique to each person. So if your child is having trouble sleeping, it’s important to see their health care provider or a sleep specialist.

Friday August 19: Paganis at La Caille

There were tons of cars to ogle at The Quail today, and damn it, we made it. Wandering through the crowds and admiring the sheer number of new and vintage cars, we were stopped in our tracks when we arrived at the Pagani exhibit. It looks like Pagani decided to pull out the big guns and show off not one, not two, not even three. . . but SIX Huayra Rs. That’s over 5000 horsepower combined!

Not to mention that they only build 30 (so that’s a fifth of production), and they cost $3.1 million each. At one point, they started one of them up and revved the naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V-12, which screeches at 9,000 rpm, and it echoed throughout the terrain. Unfortunately, we were on the other side of The Quail, but we still clearly heard and enjoyed that incredible exhaust note. —Michael Aaron

Friday August 19: BMW Time Capsule

BMW has released a few historic vehicles from its large collection in South Carolina for the media to use to attend various Car Week events. We grabbed the key to a first-generation M5, a 1988 time capsule with just 15,000 miles on the clock. It comes from a time when steering was slow but feedback came quickly, and it’s a wonderful reminder of how BMW has cemented itself as the maker of some of the world’s best sports sedans. And the wonderfully smooth and responsive character of its naturally aspirated straight-six. —Dave Vander Werp

Thursday, August 18, 4 p.m.: Lincoln Debut

On the theme of large electric sedans, Lincoln unveiled its latest concept, the Model L100. Like the Star concept, the L100 is a design exercise that shouldn’t hit dealerships anytime soon, but it’s bold and intriguing, with neat details like a crystal greyhound hidden under the transparent hood and a moving car figurine. which would act as an interface. Above all, we want to play with the small car. —Elana Scher

This year, make way for large electric sedans. . . and electric SUVs. . . and the occasional electric buggy. . . but mostly big cars. The Lucid is a solid number, but it looks tiny next to Faraday’s FF 91 prototype.

On paper, the FF 91 could give the Lucid a hard time, with a claimed 1050 horsepower from three motors. The ride in the Faraday wasn’t quite on the same level as the ride with Ben Collins (see below), as the FF 91 demo is still closer to a show car than a race car . Elana Scher

Thursday August 18: Celebrating the History of Le Mans

Somehow the sunrise doesn’t look so bad when you see it as a warm glow in the mist shrouding the hills of Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca. Most of the racers were still huddled together like butterflies in car-tarpaulin chrysalises, but even under cover the distinctive shapes of the Porsche 935s, E-Type Jags and supple Lotus single-seaters provide a thrill.

Even better was when the covers started to come off and the engine overheated. Picking a favorite would be impossible, but I enjoyed the 1959 Ferrari 250 LWB competition information card, which casually recalled the car’s 3rd place finish despite driver Jean Blaton having “bumped the nose of the Berlinetta in a sandbank at the end of the Mulsanne Strait.” Try this one on your spouse the next time you brake a wheel. “It’s just slightly bumped!”

The symphony of vintage racers was a marvel, but I was there for some quiet excitement, a ride in the same Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance that recently raced the Goodwood Hill-Climb. Goodwood’s driver was Ben Collins, former Top Gear Stig. The driver of my journey, the same. Collins says he stumbled upon Lucid’s driving gig almost by accident, or at least, out of curiosity. “I was in New York and stopped at the Classic Car Club in Manhattan,” he said. “I expressed interest in the Lucid on display and ended up getting a ride, and they were like, ‘So…what are you doing during Goodwood?’ “Since leaving Top Gear, Collins has been a busy stuntman behind the scenes, but he also enjoys being in front of the camera, on his personal YouTube channel, Ben Collins Drives.

Despite a foggy track and stock tires, Collins made the Lucid dance around Laguna Seca, highlighting its smooth power delivery, endless torque and fast-rising speedometer. “It’s 140,” he said as he slipped it into Turn 1. His only complaint was that the quiet hum of the engines didn’t give him the feedback of a rowdy engine. “I get it, it’s a luxury car, we’re just showboating,” he said, dropping it into the corkscrew. “But maybe I can get them to come up with a track setting for the sound.” Elana Scher

Thursday, August 18: Legends of the Highway

cars to highway legends 2022

Tony Quiroga

The Legends of the Autobahn is the German car show that excludes a particular German brand that rhymes with More-sha. Organized by the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes-Benz Club of America and the Audi Club of North America, the show is open to all German cars, even defunct brands like NSU and Wanderer. The show is filled with a mix of modified and stock cars and although judging takes place the atmosphere is very fraternal.

NSU Prinz TT is a rear-engined little hell.

Launched in 1968, the NSU Ro80 is a large luxury sedan with a rotary engine nestled between the front wheels.

Fleets of BMW E30s fill the lawn at Pacific Grove Links in Pacific Grove, California. BMW E36 M3s are also popular, the Mercedes-Benz 190E performed well, and the E9 BMW 3.0 CS and CSL in vintage 70s colors were also in force. I brought my personal 1991 BMW 325i convertible to display, which in my not-so-humble opinion looked a bit nicer than some of the cars on trial. Maybe next year I’ll get in earlier and my car will be properly checked. Tony Quiroga

This beautifully restored Mercedes-Benz 300SL, colloquially known as the Gullwing, won the Best of Show award.

Tony Quiroga

BMW also brought some of its new car lineup, including the first showing of the $140,895 M4 CSL in North America. Power has increased by 40 to 543 hp and weight has dropped by 240 pounds, thanks in part to the absence of a rear seat and fixed-back carbon fiber seats. We don’t think the laser trim details in the taillights save weight, but look nice. Unlike the last special edition of the M4, the GTS, the American market benefits this time around, as the seats incorporate airbags to be able to comply with collision regulations. And the angle of the backrest can be slightly adjusted; the seats just need to be unbolted out of the car to access all the fasteners to do so. This is a pre-production car, not one of about 220 coming to the US, which are already reserved.

Dave Vander Werp

Things can get more than a little stuffy during Car Week, so we enjoyed the accessible, not-too-serial nature of the Legends show. For example, here’s a well-used Audi RS4 with almost 200,000 miles in the mix. Plus, there was a lot of work going on: you don’t need the interior all buttoned up to drive it to the show, do you?

Wednesday August 17: Highway 1 in SL

pebble beach 2022

Elana Scher

As a member of the California-based team, I once again rejected air travel in favor of driving California’s Highway 1 in a classic Mercedes SL, thanks to the Mercedes Benz Classic Center. My car was a 1980 380SL, red as a sunburn from dropping the roof. Fresh from the shop, the SL has been tuned and retightened so that not only the complex climate controls work, but even the clock. This impresses me, as my entire fleet of old cars each run at a different time, mostly based on when the battery last died. Wait, 1980? Didn’t we get the 380SL only in 1981? Yes! You are so clever.

It was the first 380SL in America, formerly based in Michigan and used to develop US-only emissions gear (a weak claim to fame, I realize, given that we were cheated out of the European power in the 3.8L, but infamy is celebrity). Even with just 155 horsepower, the little ‘vert kept pace with the modern SLs in our trailer. (It helped that they were slowed down by Highway 1 traffic and driven by cheering Germans.) Our fleet of new and old arrived in Monterey with no mechanical breakdowns and no sunburn. Elana Scher
