I love those cute Russian regional flags and coats of arms. Lots of good animals: https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-s-weird-and-wonderful-regional-flags/30047221.html?

California power outage
I'm hearing about the shutdown of the power grid in parts of California from over here and I haven't seen any in-depth analysis, like even if it's necessary just straight up cutting power for days is going to cause a lot of harm and definitely some deaths.
Are people being evacuated or provided with generators, is the national guard being called out to supply the area? Like are the proper public safety precautions being taken or is California a failed state?
Cars, twitter link
I'm not a car person but having been a car kid in the early 90's I always feel like most contemporary American cars look kind of off. Not just too big but oddly proportioned, like someone scaled up a toy car. But then again modern Toyotas also look like Decepticons: https://twitter.com/TomColetti/status/1179210642139561984?s=19
