Model year 2013 Ford F-150 pickup trucks recalled

Model year 2013 Ford F-150 pickup trucks recalledThe transmission may unexpectedly downshift into first gear By James Limbach of ConsumerAffairs June 14, 2019 Ford Motor Company is recalling 107,857 model year 2013 F-150 pickup trucks equipped with 5.0L or 6.2L gasoline engines, that previously had the powertrain control module (PCM) software reprogrammed under an earlier recall. The software used to reprogram the PCM did not have the necessary updates to prevent the transmission from unexpectedly downshifting into first gear, regardless of vehicle speed. Unexpectedly downshifting into first gear may result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. What to do Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain control module free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 24, 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 19S19. ….. Read More.CONSUMER AFFAIRS – General…

I Wrote This on a 30-Year-Old Computer

I Wrote This on a 30-Year-Old ComputerEverything about this computer is loud: The groan of the power supply is loud. The hum of the cooling fan is loud. The whir of the hard disk is loud. The clack of the mechanical keyboard is loud. It’s so loud I can barely think, the kind of noise I usually associate with an airline cabin: whoom, whoom, whoom, whoom.This is the experience a computer user would have had every time she booted up her Macintosh SE, a popular all-in-one computer sold by Apple from 1987 to 1990. By today’s standards the machine is a dinosaur. It boasts a nine-inch black-and-white display. Mine came with a hard disk that offers 20 megabytes of storage, but some lacked even that luxury. And the computer still would have cost a fortune: The version I have retailed for $3,900, or about $8,400 in 2019 dollars.That’s a lot…

Fox & Friends hosts allow Sen. Mitch McConnell to lie about why he blocked …DAN BONGINO (GUEST CO-HOST): Senator, you had your legacy on judges, with President Trump, is going to be terrific getting constitutional judges appointed to the court. If another seat opens on the Supreme Court, are you going to push that through?  SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): Absolutely. You know, the precedent that people ignored back in 2016 when I made the decision not to fill the vacancy during the middle of a presidential election was who controlled the Senate. BONGINO: That’s right.  MCCONNELL: You have to go back to 1888 to find the last time a Senate of a different party from the president confirmed a vacancy to the Supreme Court that occurred during the presidential election. Makes sense. We will still control the Senate next year. If there were to be a vacancy, of course we would fill…

Ocasio-Cortez’s Latest Inequality Battle Is Inspired by Biden

Ocasio-Cortez’s Latest Inequality Battle Is Inspired by BidenRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) started a petition Saturday seeking to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars the use of federal funds for abortions, arguing the restriction overwhelmingly harms low-income Americans and women of color. AOC emailed her supporters: “Since 1976, our government has banned federal funding for abortion care — specifically, for Medicaid recipients. Countless studies have shown that due to this amendment, millions of women have been forced to go through with pregnancies that, given the funding, they would have otherwise terminated. “ Related Articles Ocasio-Cortez Won’t Be Endorsing Joe Biden Any Time Soon by Natasha Hakimi Zapata Beware the Moderate Democrat by Les Leopold / Common Dreams Joe Biden Owes America an Apology Tour by Norman Solomon “It’s not the 70s anymore.
