Tesla Model Y coming in 2020; Roadster and Semi still on the way, says Musk

Wed, 06/06/2018 - 11:17

Tesla CEO Elon Musk told shareholders Tuesday that the last few months have been "hellacious" for building the Tesla Model 3, but that the automaker expects by the end of this month to build 5,000 of the mid-size luxury sedan each week and beyond. The Model 3 may be critical for the automaker to stay alive without turning to investors for more money this year, but the upcoming Tesla Model Y crossover could be critical to vault the automaker's bottom line beyond survival. Musk told shareholders that the Tesla Model Y would be unveiled in March 2019 with production in early 2020.

US tech giant Microsoft has submerged a data centre off the Orkney archipelago in northern Scotland in a project to save on the energy used to cool the servers on land, the firm said Wednesday. The Northern Isles data centre consists of a 40-foot (12.2 metre) long white cylinder containing 864 servers -- enough to store five million movies -- and can lie on the seabed for up to five years. "More than half of the world's population lives within about 120 miles of the coast," Microsoft said on its website, describing the data centre as a "milestone" for the company.

Crocodile eats beloved terrier that spent a decade taunting it 

Wed, 06/06/2018 - 08:14

A crocodile in Australia has eaten a small dog that had taunted it for a decade and was famous for chasing the eleven-foot reptile into the water. To the horror of guests at a riverside lodge who had gathered to watch the spectacle, the saltwater crocodile did not scurry towards the water as the dog ran at its head.  Instead, as the dog’s owner, Kai Hansen, said, the crocodile "did what crocs do” and clenched the dog in its teeth before returning to the water.  Mr Hansen said he was “really sad” and had not watched the graphic footage of the incident, which was captured by onlookers.  But  he said he did not blame the  220-pound crocodile  for attacking his  15-pound dog. Casey the crocodile on Goat Island “It was something that had a high probability of happening sometime,” Mr Hansen told ABC News. "She's not doing something wrong, she's just doing what crocs do. In the early days she actually had a go at me a couple of times. These days I just throw food out from up the top and no-one is allowed to walk down there." Mr Hansen runs the Goat Island Lodge, a ramshackle lodge on the crocodile-infested Adelaide River, south of Darwin in the Northern Territory.  Guests captured footage of the dog being eaten and could be heard gasping and yelling expletives. A crocodile expert, Adam Britton, said the creature should not be destroyed for eating the dog and may not necessarily attack humans. He said crocodiles which attacked people effectively learnt how to target “large prey items”. "The dog got right up close to the crocodile's head," Mr Britton told ABC News. "That basically triggers a reflex reaction, and a crocodile, if you get that close to its head, it doesn't even think about it — it will just strike. If a crocodile attacks a person it's a little bit different because … that can potentially lead to it getting [another] large prey item, to put it bluntly." Mr Britton said the incident was a reminder to people to stay away from crocodile habitats, particularly if small dogs were present.

China says not scared after reported U.S. bomber trip over South China Sea

Wed, 06/06/2018 - 05:11

No military ship or aircraft can scare China away from its resolve to protect its territory, China's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday after two U.S. Air Force B-52 bombers were reported to have flown near disputed islands in the South China Sea. CNN reported that the two aircraft flew within the vicinity of the Spratly Islands, where China has reclaimed land and built runways and other facilities on disputed reefs and small islands. The United States was willing to work with China on a "results-oriented" relationship, but its actions in the South China Sea were coercive and the Pentagon would "compete vigorously" if needed, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Saturday.
