Uber has decided to halt all testing of their self-driving cars after one of the vehicles struck and killed a woman while she was crossing the street in Tempe, Arizona. The woman had crossed the road without using a pedestrian crosswalk and had confused the car’s programming and surprised the human monitor. Consumer Watchdog, a lobby group, is now attempting to reverse the legality of autonomous cars on public roads.

On this day in 1852, author Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” was published. This was an anti-slavery story exposing the cruelties and malpractices of the institution of slavery. Southerners became furious at Stowe, because they said she exaggerated many details, but the North read Stowe’s book and became horrified that slavery was going through such extremes in the South. This was perhaps one of the most important books in history, because it was one of the sparks that set the flame of the Civil War. In fact, when President Abraham Lincoln meet with Stowe, he jokingly said, “So you're the little lady who started this big war”.
