The most significant car arriving in 2019 may just be Toyota’s new all-wheel drive SUV, which has been rated at 39 MPG. At 39 MPG and today’s nationwide fuel price of $2.61, that’s $67 to drive the U.S. monthly average of 1,000 miles. Guess what else is $67 per month?

How China made its own Internet

It was 2000, and Bill Clinton was upbeat. The internet, he said, was opening up the world. “There’s no question China has been trying to crack down on the internet,” he said. “Good luck.
