    Using digital culture to engage with voters tends to have mixed results, but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is leading the way for a new generation of politicians to interact with their constituents.  In an effort to encourage Americans to vote, Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with fellow U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar, Twitch streamer Pokimane, and political vlogger HasanAbi to stream a few rounds of Among Us, a Mafia-like game in which players must figure out who the "imposter" in the group is before they're killed.  The stream was a success, and at the peak, had a staggering 435,000 viewers, (...) -- Twitch, Aoc, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Culture, Web Culture

    It may seem like an oxymoron that the massive, gas-guzzling GMC Hummer, once known as a symbol of overconsumption and excess, is back as a zero-emission, battery-powered electric car.  But that's exactly what happened on Tuesday evening when the electrified Hummer was revealed through a video streamed on YouTube (you can watch it above). The hulking mass of an EV is supposed to reach up to 350 miles on a single charge and go from 0 to 60 in approximately three seconds.  The supertruck (it's part SUV, part pickup) was first officially teased back in January and NBA star LeBron James (...) -- Electric Vehicles, Hummer, Tech, Transportation

    In Party for One, Mashable explores single life in 2020, from Carly Rae Jepsen's iconic single anthems, to the beauty of alone time, and the fascinating history behind the single positivity movement. For the most part, horror urges you not to stay in creepy accommodation, not to run upstairs when you should be running out the front door, and certainly not to "investigate" any strange noises in the attic.  But some movies would also advise you on another thing entirely: enjoy being single.

    For the lucky few selected to experience "Full Self-Driving" (or FSD) on their Tesla vehicle, Tuesday night is the night.  Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the autonomous mode was "happening tonight" after promising the feature would make it onto cars last week.

Once sensors verify the collected material is safely onboard, the vehicle will begin drifting away from the 490 meter wide Bennu in preparation of its eventual departure and return to Earth.

    Shares of consumer video service Netflix are down sharply after the bell today, nofollowing the company’s Q3 earnings report. Why is Netflix suddenly worth about 5% less than before?
