Tesla (TSLA) Releases Affordable Tesla That Runs on AA Batteries
The new Model 3 doesn’t actually run on batteries, but Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter (TWTR) that the company’s Model 3 sedan is officially on the sale rack. Musk wrote, “costs 35k after federal and state tax rebates in California, but the true cost of ownership is closer to 31k after gas savings.
“As Model 3 production and sales continue to grow rapidly, we’ve achieved a steady volume in manufacturing capacity, allowing us to diversify our product offering to even more customers. Our new Mid-Range Battery is being introduced this week in the U.S. and Canada to better meet the varying range needs of the many customers eager to own Model 3, and our delivery estimate for customers who have ordered the Standard Battery is 4-6 months.”

Musk’s SEC court settlement, coupled with his newest Tesla (TSLA) “BOGO” deal, has allotted the innovative, and somewhat frenetic, CEO to have quite a bit of media attention these last few weeks.
Alexa, Where Is The New Amazon (AMZN) Headquarters?
Not Alexa, nor Amazon (AMZN) executives, will tell anyone where they planning on building their new HQ2. The new location, costing roughly $5 billion to build, but allowing for the creation of over 50,000 new jobs, is being sought out by a super, secret, search committee. The growing consensus, according to NY times analysts, suggests that that HQ2’s new home may end up in the city that never sleeps, Northern Virginia.
Currently home to Amazon’s cloud computing division’s “largest and fastest-growing office outside of Seattle,” all bets are on Northern Virginia, specifically in Crystal City.
“There are a lot of merits to a lot of these places, but at the end of the day, all of the signs are pointing to Crystal City. I’m just going to say it. ”
–Amy Liu, Director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution
You know, I’ve famously said that all roads lead to Crystal City. Or was it Rome?
Sweep The Leg..Or Body Slam, That Works Too
On special election eve in 2017, Greg Gianforte, a Republican from Montana, body-slammed Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs. Apparently, Jacobs had asked him a question about the Affordable Care Act, and Gianforte did not like the sound of that. So, channeling the energy of that time he played linebacker in Pee-Wee flag football, Gianforte body slammed the poor reporter.
Well, is it any surprise to you that President Trump was proud of this moment. At a Thursday night rally in Missoula, the president publicly applauded the actions of Greg Gianforte. “Any guy who can do a body slam,” proceeding to demonstrate the move, “he’s my kind of guy.”
Towards the end of the rally, Trump discussed the possibility of running against former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 Presidential Election. Biden famously despises President Trump and once threatened to take Trump “behind the gym.”
“He’d be down faster than Greg would take him down. He’d be down so fast. Remember? Faster than Greg. I’d have to go very fast. I’d have to immediately connect.”
–President Donald Trump
Regardless of which side of the aisle you find yourself sitting, I would pay an absurd amount of the currency of your choice to watch Biden and Trump go toe-to-toe.
