In his 2002 State of the Union address, just five months after the al Qaeda-linked terrorist attack on 9/11, President George W. Bush cited three countries that he designated the “Axis of Evil”: Iraq, Iran and North Korea. 

He said: “States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States.”

Much has changed in the past 20 years, including the Axis. It is no longer relatively small, failed states. The Axis includes more countries with larger economies, bigger militaries and, worst of all, expansionist visions.

One thing that hasn’t changed: All the Axis powers, and many of their aligned countries, are run by strong-man authoritarians who are largely insulated from being ousted by the public for their actions.

More countries. Which countries make up the current Axis of Evil? My list includes China, Russia, Iran and North Korea as the primary belligerents. With Saddam Hussein gone, Iraq isn’t quite the problem it was when Bush identified his Axis.

In addition, a number of dictator-controlled countries are closely aligned with the Axis, though one could reasonably argue that one or more of them are actually part of it. Those include, at a minimum, Venezuela, Cuba, Syria, Nicaragua and Belarus.

But there are also countries that, while perhaps not aligned with the Axis, refuse to condemn Russia’s and China’s expansionist efforts and human rights violations and continue a relatively unscathed relationship. The most troubling of these countries are India and Turkey.

Bigger economies. While all three of Bush’s Axis countries were economic basket cases, and still are, that’s not the case for the new Axis. As the world’s second-largest economy, China brings a lot of financial and industrial resources to the network. And both China and Russia have huge natural resources.

The new Axis has vastly increased the amount of land and people under its control. Taken together with some of the aligned and friendly countries, they control most of Asia. And their close proximity allows them to expand trade between themselves and move banned or sanctioned products (e.g., weapons, oil and gas, drugs, etc.) across borders. For example, while the West may be trying to wean itself from Russian oil and gas, China and India are picking up some of the slack.

In other words, the size, finances and natural resources of the new Axis and its friends may allow it to become a semi-insulated trade and economic block, minimizing the impact of Western efforts to isolate and sanction any bad actors.

Expansionist efforts. Perhaps the biggest change in the last 20 years is the new Axis’s expansionist efforts.

Neither Russia nor China is content with its current borders. Both are expanding, or at least trying to. Russia’s accurate unprovoked invasion of Ukraine follows other aggressions, such as its takeover of Crimea in 2014. And nearby countries, such as Estonia and Moldova, fear they may be the next course on the Russian menu.

China is engaging in a somewhat different kind of expansion. It has already absorbed Hong Kong, years before an agreement with Great Britain permitted. And it’s eyeing Taiwan as its next victim. But there is no reason to think China would be satisfied if it takes Taiwan. Expansionists gonna expand.

It’s built islands in the South China Sea and turned them into military bases. And it’s entering into financial and infrastructure agreements with a number of small countries – known as the Belt and Road Initiative – that could eventually provide China with logistic and military benefits.

And while Russian President Vladimir Putin’s expansionist dreams are now apparent to everyone, China still denies any such intent. However, China’s military buildup tells a different story.

China has by far the largest army in the world, 2 million personnel, roughly 50 percent more than the United States. China also has the largest navy in the world, 777 vessels (as of 2020). Russia has 603 and the United States 490.

To be sure, the largest navy doesn’t mean the most powerful. The World Population Review points out that the U.S. Department of Defense counts the relevant vessels differently and claims China has 355 ships and the United States 293. But the United States still has more high-value ships, such as aircraft carriers, than China.

Even so, one wonders why China needs the largest army and navy in the world if its intentions are peaceful.

And while Iran isn’t a major military power, we recently learned it is manufacturing and selling arms, especially “kamikaze drones,” to Russia.

In the 20 years since Bush identified his version of the Axis of Evil, the number of countries and the threat level have grown. And it’s becoming all too reminiscent of the 1930s.

Killexams : Self-Driving Taxis Are Causing All Kinds of Trouble in San Francisco

When transit systems experience delays, the reason usually isn’t very interesting: congested streets, medical emergencies, mechanical problems. But the cause of a accurate holdup on San Francisco’s MUNI system at least had the virtue of being novel.

On Sept. 30 at around 11 p.m., an N Line streetcar ground to a halt at the intersection of Carl Street and Cole Street because an autonomous vehicle from Cruise, a subsidiary of General Motors, had halted on the streetcar tracks and wouldn’t budge. According to the city’s transportation department, the 140 passengers riding the N line that evening were stuck in place for seven minutes before a Cruise employee arrived and moved the driverless conveyance. (Cruise did not respond to questions about what happened that night.)

This incident, which was not reported in the media at the time, is one of many in which autonomous vehicles roaming San Francisco’s streets have disrupted the city’s transportation network. In April, a Cruise vehicle blocked a travel lane needed by a siren-blaring fire engine, delaying its arrival at a three-alarm fire. Last fall, dozens of self-driving cars from Google’s Waymo subsidiary drove daily into a quiet cul-de-sac before turning around, much to the frustration of nearby residents.

Because of California’s insufficient and outdated AV reporting requirements, many incidents like these have escaped both public attention and regulatory consequences. Facing minimal scrutiny, AV companies have little incentive to avoid mucking up the public right of way—or even keep city officials informed about what’s happening on their streets.

With Silicon Valley a few miles away, San Francisco has become the top urban location for AV testing and deployment. With California officials granting their first AV deployment permits allowing passenger service this year, the city now offers a preview of what’s to come in other places where self-driving companies are now fanning out, with expansions announced for Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Austin.

Based on San Francisco’s experience, residents and officials in those cities should brace for strange, disruptive, and dangerous happenings on their streets. And they should demand that state officials offer the protection that California is failing to provide.

After a decade of testing and hype, it suddenly felt this year as if self-driving cars were everywhere in San Francisco. While individuals—in California or anywhere else—can’t buy these vehicles for themselves, companies are competing to Strengthen the technology and roll out taxi services that resemble ride hail. In San Francisco, Cruise and Waymo allow residents to request a ride on their app, summoning a driverless vehicle that brings them to their destination. (Waymo transports passengers using safety drivers who can intervene if something goes wrong; Cruise does not.) Joining Cruise and Waymo robotaxis on San Francisco streets are testing vehicles from a number of other AV companies.

Two California agencies decide which autonomous companies have permission to operate within the state. The Department of Motor Vehicles issues permits for the vehicle itself (dozens of companies have obtained one), while the California Public Utilities Commission provides permits for passenger service. Earlier this year the CPUC issued Cruise and Waymo the state’s first robotaxi permits to transport paying passengers.

California requires that companies conducting AV testing submit information about collisions as well as “disengagements,” or moments when the autonomous system is forced to transfer driving responsibility to a human. The DMV publishes this information, along with each company’s total number of miles of autonomous driving on state roads. But AV executives—joined by some outside observers—have criticized disengagements as a deceptive metric, since it does not take into account the higher degree of difficulty navigating urban streets compared with interstates. Companies could also tinker with their disengagement data to seem safer than they are, something that the Chinese company AutoX has been accused of doing.

“It’s an open question whether or not disengagement data gives you anything useful,” said Billy Riggs, a professor at the University of San Francisco’s School of Management who has followed the state’s AV deployments closely. Even so, California’s regulatory focus on disengagements has powerfully shaped national media coverage of AV safety.

Strange as it may seem, California stops requiring that AV companies share disengagement data and collision locations as soon as they begin collecting passenger fares, as Waymo and Cruise now do. From that point forward, if an AV vehicle jeopardizes safety on the street—for instance, by causing a crash or blocking a transit line—the public won’t know unless the AV company chooses to publicize it (unlikely) or if a passerby reports the incident to 911 or posts about it on social media (unreliable).

Relaxing oversight for AVs with paying passengers might have seemed appropriate during the industry’s age of optimism several years ago, when policymakers could assume that companies would have “solved” autonomous driving before they started charging people for trips. If so, San Francisco’s experience shows that the reality is something else entirely.

Cities, for their part, play no defined role in the state’s AV regulatory structure, leaving them struggling to obtain information about AV-induced roadway blockages or even a list of companies deploying testing vehicles on their streets. Asked by email under what specific conditions Cruise notifies local leaders about an incident, spokesperson Hannah Lindow replied only that the company “maintains an open line of communication and meets regularly with city officials.”

Urban leaders anticipated these problems and tried to forestall them. In 2020 officials from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego asked the CPUC “not [to] create a deployment program that would supply participants blanket authority to operate a fared service anywhere in the State.” The CPUC rejected that request, which has hobbled cities’ ability to manage their streets.

There is an ominous precedent for this situation. When ride hail emerged a decade ago, Uber and Lyft lobbied, mostly successfully, for states rather than cities to oversee them. That preemption left urban leaders with few tools to control (or even monitor) ride hail, which researchers have found increases traffic congestion and reduces transit ridership. Early evidence suggests that an influx of AVs could create similar problems, but on a much larger scale.

It’s been less than a year since California granted its first AV deployment permits, but robotaxis have already caused a slew of problems in San Francisco. In April, a Cruise vehicle stopped by city police pulled over to the side of the street—and then promptly drove away from an officer who tried to look inside. (“Are you serious? How does that happen?” a baffled onlooker exclaimed.) In June, a phalanx of at least a dozen Cruise vehicles obstructed a city arterial. (“Oh no, they’re plotting,” someone quipped on Reddit.) According to city officials, 28 incidents involving Cruise were reported to 911 between May 29 and Sept. 5, including instances of vehicles driving on the sidewalk.

Cruise and other AV companies maintain a ”Critical Response Line” dedicated to handling emergencies, but no public data measure their responsiveness. Cruise does not include information about right-of-way blockages or response times in its self-written, 175-page “safety report.” Asked how quickly Cruise responds to an emergency involving one of its vehicles, Lindow, the company spokesperson, said Cruise is “striving to do so in 10 minutes or less.” She did not reply when asked how often it achieves that benchmark.

Cruise seems to cause the lion’s share of San Francisco’s AV headaches, but other companies have created problems too, such as the Waymo vehicles that constantly drove into the dead-end terminus of 15th Avenue, waking up the neighborhood.

Despite all the issues in San Francisco, California’s regulatory agencies have shown no signs of tightening or revising their oversight. Mark Rosekind, the former head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, who now helms the nonprofit California Mobility Center, said authorities “should evolve their regulatory approach to reflect the current state of technology. What data are needed to effectively identify safety issues? That’s a conversation state officials should be having with AV companies and other stakeholders.”

In September, two San Francisco transportation departments took the unusual step of bringing their concerns about AV deployments—and Cruise in particular—directly to the federal government in a 39-page letter submitted to the NHTSA. The letter was prompted by General Motors’ request that NHTSA exempt Cruise’s new AV vehicle, the Origin, from federal vehicle safety rules. Although the city officials stated they neither “support nor oppose” GM’s request, accurate experiences have clearly given them pause. The letter highlighted Cruise’s patchy response to emergencies: “On one occasion on August 4, 2022, a City dispatcher placed four calls over six minutes [to Cruise’s emergency response line]; none of these calls were picked up.” Lindow did not respond when asked for comment on that allegation.

The National Association of City Transportation Officials, representing municipal transportation departments across North America, submitted its own letter to the NHTSA that flatly opposed GM’s request that the Cruise Origin receive an exemption from vehicle safety rules. (NHTSA has not yet made a decision.) Kate Fillin-Yeh, NACTO’s director of strategy, said urban transportation leaders nationwide are watching events unfold in San Francisco with growing concern. “I know that AV companies can make more money in cities because there is a density of people there,” she said, “but they’re unhelpful to the many people who rely on transit or walk.”

Indeed, beyond the wow factor of stepping inside a self-driving car, it’s unclear how exactly the introduction of robotaxis improves an urban transportation network. But the risks—including disruptions on public roadways, increased congestion, and reduced transit use—are very real.

Fillin-Yeh said her top request for federal and state policymakers is that they empower local leaders to monitor and manage AVs using their streets. “Cities need to be a part of these conversations about permitting and regulating AVs,” she said. “That isn’t always happening.”

In their letter to NHTSA, San Francisco officials proposed several ways to Strengthen AV oversight. They suggested that NHTSA treat “travel lane failures that block roadways” as a key measure of AV readiness, adding that NHTSA should also quantify and publicize AV companies’ response times to vehicle emergencies.

Riggs, the University of San Francisco professor, agreed on the need to evaluate AV companies’ emergency response times, adding that governments must be especially careful to protect so-called vulnerable road users. “We should be collecting autonomous vehicles’ near-misses with pedestrians and cyclists,” he said.

In an interview, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency director Jeffrey Tumlin insisted that his city’s goals do not conflict with those of AV companies. “It’s in the interest of both the city and the AV industry to minimize impacts to transit and emergency response time,” he said. “But the AV industry doesn’t work if all the vehicles are stuck in traffic congestion. And the industry doesn’t work if they lose all political support because they’re blocking transit and fire departments.”

Meanwhile, AV companies are turning their attention far beyond the Bay Area. accurate press releases have announced new AV deployments in cities across the West and Southwest. Waymo recently declared that it will begin operating in Los Angeles, and a Lyft/Motional partnership plans to launch there as well. (It already operates in Las Vegas.) Cruise, meanwhile, has opened a waitlist for new service in Austin, Texas, and Phoenix, and chief operating officer Gil West told Reuters, “You’ll likely see us expand the number of markets in a large number [in 2023].” (Southwestern states like Nevada, Texas, and Arizona generally have more laissez-faire approaches toward AV regulation than California does.)

Problems resembling those in San Francisco are already surfacing elsewhere. In November Waymo announced that its robotaxi service was available in downtown Phoenix; less than 10 days later, a passenger tweeted that her autonomous ride there “was smooth sailing until it got stuck in the middle of an intersection.”

With the demise of, an AV company that had received billions in investment, remaining companies face growing pressure to showcase their deployment capabilities to antsy investors. Such competition can be healthy—if it doesn’t sacrifice societal goals around safety, equity, and a balanced transportation network.

But the experience of San Francisco suggests that it very well could, which would undermine support for AVs writ large. After all, it’s difficult to see why Americans should embrace robotaxi services that block intersections, delay transit service, and slow emergency response times. And it’s even harder to understand why any state would repeat California’s mistake of allowing AV companies to provide robotaxi service without collecting and sharing information about all crashes, roadway obstructions, and incident response times. At the federal level, Congress’ interest in restricting states’ few AV management tools would be a step in precisely the wrong direction.

Unfortunately, that now seems to be where autonomous-vehicle regulation is: stuck in an intersection, like that Waymo car in Phoenix, with no one in the driver’s seat.

Killexams : We Tried It: LIT AXIS, a Resistance Band Training System That Can Turn Any Room Into a Workout Studio

What It Is: LIT AXIS, a portable, resistance band training system

Who Tried It: Stephanie Emma Pfeffer, PEOPLE Health writer and editor

I am a lift-weights-at-the-gym person. That's because I work from home, my kids are home, my overflowing laundry basket is at home. At the gym there are fewer distractions. I can get in a better headspace. It's easier to focus and feel more productive. But like every other person, I can't always get where I want to go. So I was eager to try LIT AXIS.

Think of LIT AXIS as a high-tech resistance band that can be used in lieu of free weights, a suspension trainer or a Pilates reformer. It folds up into a small portable case and can be thrown in your bag for travel, or when you're taking your kids to the playground. It's also very handy for small spaces, especially if you don't have the room (or desire) for a bunch of cluttering free weights. Or, when you just can't get to the gym.


"Our mission is to make premium fitness accessible to everyone," says Justin Norris, who co-founded the LIT Method with his wife Taylor. "This product was built around versatility, making it compact, affordable, and portable."

The system comes with two sets of resistance trainer bands, 15 lbs. and 30 lbs., and can be set up on three anchor points — top line, mid line and low line — depending on which exercises you want to perform and which muscle groups you want to work. For low line, loop the bands around a couch leg, for example. Mid line might be a tree at the park. For top line, slip the universal anchor over the top of a door, then shut it. You're ready to go.

For my first strength training session, I used the low line anchor point around the leg of my (very heavy) coffee table. I did arm presses, then single arm presses on one side, then the other. While moving I looked at my app dashboard where I could see all of my metrics being tracked: reps, calories burned, pounds lifted and time under tension, which is how much time I was spending actually working a muscle. The system also measured my left side versus right for symmetrical strength training, identifying the muscle imbalances.

And after the initial set up through the app, I literally didn't have to do anything else except get moving. There's no power button, no on or off switch. The system automatically activates due to its "smart start" capabilities. "We wanted a frictionless experience," Norris explains. "We didn't want people to have to remember to charge it, or to have to fuss with any cords."


The LIT AXIS app provides access to a library of classes which range from 10 mins to 40 minutes. I liked having quick options to supplement a run. When I wanted to change things up, I switched to circuit classes, which combine strength and cardio. They incorporate movements like squats and inch worms between sets to elevate heart rate before slowing it for strength training. For Pilates devotees, the AXIS also comes with ankle bands so you can access the robust Pilates content on the app.

LIT AXIS costs $199 and can be financed at $5/month. The app subscription is $9.99/month or $79.99/annually.

Level of Difficulty: 6 out of 10

The Verdict: LIT AXIS is convenient and efficient, offering productive workouts in short spurts of time. Although I was skeptical at first of spending less time and doing fewer reps, I realized that the reps were of a higher quality than what I might do on my own at the gym (where I am usually rushing through a workout to get to my desk on time). I wouldn't recommend it for first-timers or free-weight loyalists, but anyone with a basic knowledge of strength training would probably enjoy their results.

Killexams : AXIS Launches Integrated Environmental and General Liability Coverage for Manufacturing Sector

PEMBROKE, Bermuda, December 01, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AXIS Capital Holdings Limited ("AXIS" or the "Company") (NYSE: AXS), announced today its Environmental business unit has launched a Specialty Package Policy for manufacturers ("SPPm"). The SPPm policy covers a range of general and environmental liability exposures facing manufacturers, all in one integrated insurance package.

Exposures covered by SPPm include those associated with manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, and processing operations, as well as waste storage, treatment, and disposal facilities. The new policy is available for US-based manufacturing and distribution operations with revenues up to $2B.

"This new, expanded environmental offering is part of our broader effort to provide enhanced capabilities and innovation to the specialty market," said Rich Zarandona, Executive Vice President, Environmental, at AXIS. "Manufacturers and distributors face a multifaceted risk environment and it’s therefore essential that the sophistication of their insurance coverage matches the complexity of their risk."

Coverages available through SPPm include:

  • ISO-based CGL including products and products pollution liability

  • non-owned site pollution liability

  • transportation pollution

  • premises pollution liability

  • employee benefits administration

  • emergency response expense coverage

  • product withdrawal expense

In addition, a new excess policy ("SPXm") provides excess liability coverage for manufacturers covering primary general liability, pollution, products pollution, excess auto and employers’ liability.

Mark Sielski, AXIS Environmental Group Lead, added, "As businesses’ general liability and environmental risks become more intertwined, it is no longer prudent to assess these liabilities independently. With SPPm, we're excited to offer an integrated approach to our partners, enabling them to manage complex, specialist risk and coverage considerations in a simple, seamless and cost-effective manner."

In addition, AXIS recently hired Tom Kashickey as Lead Underwriter, Environmental Liability. Mr. Kashickey’s hire is part of a broader effort to build a dedicated team to support new products.

Mr. Kashickey commented, "AXIS has developed SPPm specifically for manufacturers, distributors and other select industries to support them as they manage a spectrum of risk associated with premises, products and pollution liability risk. We look forward to working with brokers to provide innovative solutions that address environmental risk."

Killexams : Axis Infinity, STEPN, and Tamadoge In The Play-2-Earn Spotlight, While Oryen Network Eyes WaxirX Listing

Play-to-earn tokens have become profitable financial assets over the past few years. These tokens are obtained through participating in gamified activities such as completing missions, engaging in combat, and creating in-game avatars in crypto games. These play-to-earn games are where many non-fungible token (NFT) owners got their start, increasing the value of their NFTs by winning in-game missions.

Oryen (ORY), a brand-new reserve currency, is now outperforming these play-to-earn tokens in terms of returns. As a result, Oryen is poised to be an intriguing asset for investors with a stable 90% annual yield.

Oryen eyes WaxirX listing

Finding a soaring ICO that offers large rewards in the volatile market takes a lot of effort. Investment decisions have become more difficult, with many economic factors affecting most crypto projects.

Despite the adverse market conditions, one cryptocurrency startup has surpassed expectations and gained 120% in less than two months. Oryen Network is a DeFi-based staking platform that allows users to auto-stake their ORY tokens and earn high guaranteed yields.

Oryen Network earned a spot on the top DeFi coin list thanks to its outstanding features and extraordinary ability to outperform other crypto projects. It has since maintained strong growth. However, the coin’s ‘struggle’ to gather more success doesn’t end here. It is currently eyeing to be listed on WaxirX, a leading Indian crypto exchange.

Axie Infinity (AXS)

Axie Infinity is an NFT-based game that enables players to own their pets and battle them against each other. The tradeable pets are called “Axies” and can be very costly depending on rarity and attributes. These addicting features make AXS one of the most popular blockchain-based games.

Tamadoge (TAMA)

TAMA is a one-of-a-kind metaverse-based initiative that combines meme currency features with great virtual entertainment. In the Tamadoge universe, you can breed, train, and play with your virtual pets while earning rewards. It could be the ideal alternative because it combines pleasure with cryptocurrency and can result in significant profits.


STEPN takes a fitness approach and melts it together with crypto rewards, luring current fitness enthusiasts and inspiring more people to engage. Users must first invest in a pair of pace-appropriate digital. Then, users can begin walking, jogging, or running after activating their GPS to earn tokens.

The Bottom Line

Oryen has a different approach than AXS, TAMA, or GMT without much of a play-to-earn aspect. However, as we speak, Oryen has already seen a 120% rise, outperforming all other play-to-earn tokens at its presale, implying the coin’s utility is highly sought-after, and its value will skyrocket upon launch.
