    With the Twitter turmoil hanging a dark cloud of Elon Musk, shareholders worry the CEO could step down from his role at Tesla if forced to purchase the platform, but Musk ensured them his talented team could continue the work even if he 'was kidnapped by aliens' or returned to his home planet. The humorous remarks were made during Tesla's 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held Thursday at the company's new headquarters in Austin, Texas, and were given during the Q&A portion of the presentation. The question came from Tesla bull and managing partner of The Future Fund, Gary Black, who asked: 'So how does the board think about your succession and especially when you a judge who's going to decide in a couple months whether or not you have to take over Twitter. How would you split your time?' After ensuring the crowd Tesla would live on, Musk then said 'I am not leaving to be clear.'

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) fumbled a direct question on right-wing Newsmax Friday when he was asked about whether or not he supports exceptions for rape and incest when it comes to abortion bans. “Should they be forced to carry out this child? Should they have this option? In the state of Ohio, sir, where do you fall on that?” Jordan was asked. “Well, this is a question. This is straight on this Supreme Court, Supreme Court’s decision,” began Jordan. “This is the question that the legislatures in the respective states will answer. I am as pro-life as you can be, we want to protect the unborn children as life. But in this situation you’re talking about you’re talking about a ten-year-old. But that’s a question for legislatures in the respective states,” he continued addressing the tragic story of a 10-year-old girl who was raped in Ohio and had to cross to Indiana to get an abortion — a story Jordan joined many on the right in publicly doubting. “That’s exactly what the Dobbs decision said. And that’s where the people’s...
    China is using artificial intelligence to 'improve' its court system by recommending laws, drafting documents and alerting 'perceived human errors' in rulings. Judges must now consult the AI on every case by law, Beijing's Supreme Court said in an update on the system published this week, and if they go against its recommendation they must submit a written explanation for why. The AI has also been connected to police databases and China's Orwellian social credit system, handing it the power to punish people - for example by automatically putting a thief's property up for sale online. Beijing has hailed the new technology for making 'a significant contribution to the judicial advancement of human civilisation' - while critics say it risks creating a world in which man is ruled by machine. China has plugged artificial intelligence into its 'smart court' system - allowing it to make rulings, draft laws, and charge people with crimes (pictured, a Chinese court during Covid) China has been developing a 'smart court' system since at least 2016, when Chief Justice Qiang Zhou called for technology to be...
    Twitter looks well positioned to win a court battle with Elon Musk for a $1 billion breakup fee after he backed out of a $44 billion Twitter deal, a move that experts say is 'legally wrong,' and that if he is forced to buy the company, it will 'die slowly and painfully.' Musk, 51, who is the world's richest man, announced he was walking away from the highly publicized deal on Friday. The entire saga has left observers baffled by what Wedbush analyst Dan Ives described as 'one of the craziest business stories ever.' 'I think it starts off as a circus show and it's ending as a circus show,' Ives told AFP.  Musk agreed to a $1 billion breakup fee as part of the buyout agreement, although it appears Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and the company are settling in for a legal fight to force the sale. 'For Twitter this fiasco is a nightmare scenario,' Ives said, comparing the battle to an 'Everest-like uphill climb' or a 'Games of Thrones' battle.  Musk has accused the social media giant of 'false and...
    (CNN)South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem on Sunday defended her state's abortion ban, which includes an exception when the pregnant person's life is at risk but not in cases involving incest or rape.When asked by CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" whether children similar to a 10-year-old child abuse victim who traveled from Ohio to Indiana to receive an abortion should be forced to give birth, Noem said, "This tragedy is horrific. I can't even imagine. I have never had anybody in my family or myself gone through anything like this. ... But, in South Dakota, the law today is that the abortions are illegal, except to save the life of the mother."Noem told Bash she would not be in favor of amending the current law -- a so-called trigger law that took effect following the US Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade -- to add an exception for similar situations, saying, "I don't believe a tragic situation should be perpetuated by another tragedy."But Noem did signal that a 10-year-old in the described situation may qualify...
    BAYERN MUNICH winger Serge Gnabry will be SOLD this summer if he fails to sign a new deal at the Allianz Arena. That is the view of the club's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic who has handed Arsenal a boost in their pursuit of the player. 1Serge Gnabry could depart Bayern Munich this summer with the player having just a year left on his contractCredit: Reuters The Gunners have been linked with a move to bring the Germany international back to the Emirates six years after he swapped North London for Werder Bremen. Gnabry is facing an uncertain future in Bavaria with the ex-West Brom loanee having just a year left on his contract. Speaking earlier this month, Bayern president Hebert Hainer admitted that talks to extend his stay have stalled.

    MILLIONS of iPhone owners will soon be forced to use a completely different charging cable. The EU has effectively banned Apple’s lightning port, ruling that all smartphones should use the same type of cable, USB-C. 2Most modern Android devices use USB-CCredit: Getty Many phones already use USB-C but Apple has so far resisted. From autumn 2024, all small electronic devices will have to use the same type of port. While the move is only intended for devices sold in EU countries, it’s quite likely Apple will adopt it across the world so that the firm doesn’t have to produce two different batches of iPhone. The rules will only apply to new phones, so anyone with an iPhone at the moment can continue using their lightning cable as normal for the rest of the phone's life. But once they upgrade after autumn 2024 they’ll have to use USB-C instead. Apple had already switched over on the iPad and Mac. And recent reports suggested the tech giant was already preparing to scrap the lightning port on iPhone too. The main aim of...
    Russia’s foreign ministry issued a stark warning to Finland that Moscow will “be forced” to take retaliatory actions if the Northern European country joins NATO. The threat from Russia came hours after Finland’s leaders announced their support of the country’s application for NATO membership. UKRAINE COULD 'DEFINITELY WIN' DEPENDING ON HOW VICTORY IS DEFINED, EXPERTS SAY “The statement by Finnish President S. Niinistö and Finnish Prime Minister S. Marin, who spoke today in favor of Finland joining NATO, is a radical change in the country's foreign policy," the Russian foreign ministry said, according to CNN, adding that "Helsinki must be aware of the responsibility and consequences of such a move." "Russia will be forced to take retaliatory steps, both of a military-technical and other nature, in order to stop the threats to its national security that arise in this regard," it said. "Joining NATO will also be a direct violation of Finland's international legal obligations, primarily the Paris Peace Treaty of 1947 and the 1992 Treaty between Russia and Finland on the fundamentals of relations.” Finland, which shares a roughly...

    EVERTON'S nightmare form and Burnley's revival could see the Toffees relegated for the first time since 1951. Frank Lampard's side contained and frustrated Liverpool for an hour on Sunday. 8Frank Lampard faces a battle to keep hold of his best players this summerCredit: Getty But Divock Origi cast his spell on the blue half of Merseyside once again to inspire a 2-0 win for the title-chasing Reds.

    MEDICAL debt creates a massive burden for millions of Americans each year - and many say they get bills that aren't theirs too. A 2022 survey from Affordable Health Insurance found that 55% of adults carried medical debt, and the outstanding bill exceeded $1,000 for more than 60% of those in debt. 1Medical debt is a problem for millions, and the CFPB reported that many collectors hassle Americans for unowed debt Medical expenses like emergency room visits and ambulance rides can cost thousands, forcing even patients with insurance into debt. And the pandemic has spawned medical bills for millions of Americans, exacerbating existing debts and creating new ones. But in addition to medical bills people have actually incurred, a consumer watchdog organization reported that many Americans are damaged by bills they already paid or never owed in the first place. The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau found that thousands are plagued by disputed, inaccurate, and unowed medical bills.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) stated that the enhanced safety inspections of commercial vehicles coming into Texas from Mexico have predictably resulted in the governors of multiple Mexican states demanding relief from the traffic slowdowns caused by the inspections, and that as those states demand relief, “we are demanding that they implement security measures that will reduce illegal immigration coming across the border.” He added that the governors of several Mexican states have either reached an agreement or are in talks with Texas to implement security measures. Abbott also vowed that if Mexican states won’t bolster security, “we are going to continue with our right to inspect every single vehicle coming across that bridge into the state of Texas, regardless of the economic consequences it poses to Mexico.” Abbott said the inspections “had the predictable result, and that is it snarled traffic for miles…basically crashing economic conditions in these states as well as in the country of Mexico and having severe economic consequences for businesses in Mexico.

    Caretakers at zoo in one of Ukraine’s largest city may be forced to euthanize its big cats, bears, and other animals after a Russian attack left their habitats almost mostly destroyed. Zookeepers at Ecopark in Kharviv were racing to relocate all of its animals on Thursday, after the zoo was “subjected to massive shelling and bombardment,” according to a statement from its founder, Alexander Feldman. “Ecopark is no more,” he said, “The biggest problem is large predators. Their enclosures miraculously still retain their integrity, but one more shelling — and the lions, tigers, bears, distraught with fear, may be free and go towards Kharkov or to nearby villages.” “We cannot allow this,” Feldman added. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Ecopark said staff was able to successfully transport five lions and some other animals from the zoo — despite another round of shelling. The day prior, another two young lions were evacuated alongside some jaguars and panthers. “Transporting lions is not an easy task,” one social media post reads. “Especially when animals have been stressed from shelling for over a...

    Daniil Medvedev may have lost his world No. 1 tennis ranking on Monday when he was defeated at the Indian Wells Open, but a Tuesday announcement could weigh much heavier on the Russian champion. British Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston announced Tuesday that Russian athletes may be required to denounce Russian President Vladimir Putin if they wish to compete at Wimbledon, according to comments made at a select committee in Parliament. "Absolutely, nobody flying the flag for Russia should be allowed or enabled [to compete]," he said, according to a report.

    Prince Andrew could get £7million in compensation from the taxpayer if he is forced out of his grace-and-favour home in Windsor. The Duke of York could rake in the huge sum if he forfeits the £30million Royal Lodge, documents show. The 2005 National Audit Office report says he is entitled to be repaid for a £7.5million refurbishment he funded after moving in in 2003. It comes as the 61-year-old faces growing calls to leave the 31-bedroom house after he settled his rape case with Virginia Roberts earlier this week. The Queen's second son said in a letter submitted to the United States District Court he 'regrets his association' with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. Andrew also agreed to make a 'substantial donation' to Ms Giuffre's charity after the pair agreed an undisclosed out-of-court settlement in her civil sex claim against him.

    Having previously denied, until recently, any memory of even meeting Virginia Roberts, Prince Andrew has agreed to pay an undisclosed quantity of megabucks to his accuser. Of course, the cash settlement is not an admission of guilt. Maybe the foolish Andrew really meant it when he maintained, until only a short while ago and in defiance of the laws of common sense, that he wanted his day in court. But whatever the case, if anyone in Buckingham Palace had dared to hope that the whole ugly matter could now be forgotten, they have made a catastrophic mistake. Be in no doubt: This fiasco is the worst scandal by far to have engulfed the Royal Family since the abdication of Edward VIII in 1936. It makes ‘Megxit’ look like a cup of tea spilt at a Palace garden party. Nor can we comfort ourselves with the thought that at least every senior member of the Royal Family displays impeccable judgment.

    Most British Facebook users could receive a £50 payout if a landmark legal claim launched against the social network over 'unfair' terms and conditions is successful. Competition law expert Dr Liza Lovdahl Gormsen has brought the class-action lawsuit against Facebook's parent firm Meta at the UK's Competition Appeal Tribunal. The director of the Competition Law Forum has accused the technology giant of abusing its market dominance, and is seeking a minimum of £2.3billion in damages. The action could see more than 44million people compensated over claims that Facebook used its dominant position to force them to agree to terms and conditions. It is claimed this allowed the firm to generate billions in revenues from their data, while users received no monetary returns, which the claim labels an 'unfair deal'.

    Chicago Public Schools remained closed on Thursday and may not resume for its 350,000 students until Monday after the teacher's union and city failed to come to an agreement on additional COVID-19 policies Wednesday night. Thursday marked the second day of what city and public school officials called an 'illegal strike' by the Chicago Teachers Union, which voted earlier this week to refuse in-person learning until its demands for more COVID regulations were met.  The CTU, led by socialist Jesse Sharkey, demanded that the city and Chicago Public Schools ask students to opt into COVID testing in order to come back to in-person classes, as well as provide high quality masks for all. It also called on schools to go remote if 20 per cent of staff were in isolation or in quarantine. The demands go further than what's implemented in the New York City and Los Angeles School Districts, the two largest districts in the nation, who have both vowed to avoid any shutdowns due to COVID.  Chicago Public Schools CEO Pedro Martinez, who has disavowed the strike, said...

    Kris Bryant, San Francisco Giants. (Mandatory Credit: Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports) If the Atlanta Braves lose Freddie Freeman in free agency, they have some big moves to make. While one would think the Atlanta Braves are the favorites to re-sign 2020 NL MVP Freddie Freeman in the same offseason after winning their first World Series in 26 years, here we are. Even though the players have been locked out for going on a month now, it is almost unfathomable that Freeman still has not re-signed with the Braves. He, along with Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, are among the biggest names that have yet to put pen to paper this offseason.

    Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has reportedly told ex-teammates this is his last year, but what if it’s not? Roethlisberger looked downright dreadful heading into the Steelers rivalry game against the Baltimore Ravens. What a difference a week can make, right? Big Ben and Pittsburgh’s offense came alive in the fourth quarter, and the Steelers came away with an upset win to keep their playoff hopes alive…for now. The remaining schedule is tough, and they’re still technically out of the top-7. Nonetheless, Roethlisberger proved he still has something left to give, especially to former teammates questioning his greatness (cough: Ryan Clark).

    Getty Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is expected to get looks for head coaching vacancies. Despite their recent skid, the Dallas Cowboys success this season means offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn have become popular names in head coaching rumors. During a November 10 episode of the Locked on Cowboys podcast, analysts Marcus Mosher and Landon McCool discussed who the Cowboys’ top replacement candidates are if either coordinator takes a head coaching gig. Both believe Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy would likely first look to promote internally if the team loses either coordinator. If Quinn takes another job, senior defensive assistant George Edwards was labeled as a top replacement candidate. Cowboys quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier could get a strong look at offensive coordinator if Moore is hired elsewhere. Mosher mentioned 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan as a “dream candidate” for offensive coordinator if he gets fired by San Francisco. “If we are going to talk about realistic candidates, George Edwards, I think would probably be maybe above him [Al Harris], and on the...

                      by Bethany Blankley  More than a third of U.S. workers who have not been vaccinated for COVID-19 say they will quit their jobs if their employer requires them to take a weekly test or get the shots as a condition of employment, the Kaiser Family Foundation reports. The data come from the foundation’s COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor, an ongoing research project that tracks the public’s attitudes and experiences with COVID-19 vaccinations. It combines surveys and qualitative research, as well as public opinion on vaccine confidence and acceptance, information needs, messages and other criteria. “Across the country, more and more business, universities, and state and local governments are instituting COVID-19 vaccination requirements,” the report states.

    One of the country’s top evangelical universities is being sued by a dozen former students who claim that administrators made it ‘difficult or impossible’ to report sexual assault because the young women ran afoul of the honor code that bans drinking and pre-marital relations. Liberty University, the Lynchburg, Virginia-based Christian university co-founded by the late Jerry Falwell Sr, would penalize the young women who came forward by claiming they violated the ‘Liberty Way,’ according to the lawsuit. News of the allegations against Liberty was first reported by ProPublica. Last year, the school's president, Jerry Falwell Jr, left his post after it was learned that his wife was having an affair with a pool boy, Giancarlo Granda, who was trying to extort the couple. Also last year, a former Liberty University student who played in a band with Becki Falwell’s son came forward with claims she performed oral sex on him and pursued him on Facebook for months when he was 22.  Earlier this year, Liberty filed a lawsuit seeking tens of millions of dollars in damages from Jerry Falwell Jr. The...
    ANTHONY JOSHUA could be forced to vacate one of the world title belts if he beats Oleksandr Usyk. The Watford boxer suffered his second defeat as a pro when he easily lost on points to the Ukrainian in September. 2Anthony Joshua will try and reclaim his belts from Oleksandr Usyk in a rematchCredit: ©Ian Walton Matchroom Boxing The pair have agreed the rematch, with the finer points of where and when still to be thrashed out. If AJ somehow manages to find a way to beat Usyk, it could bring back the dream Tyson Fury clash. But that might not be for 'all the belts'. The WBA could push for their mandatory man, Robert Helenius, to get his shot at the title. That could mean AJ gives up that belt to sign the multi-million pound fight against fellow Brit Fury. Speaking to Sky Sports, Helenius' manager Markus Sundman explained: "Right now we are focused on the WBA mandatory position.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Bill de Blasio‘s COVID-19 vaccine mandate is generating major pushback from public employee unions. They are are vowing legal action and predicting dangerous staffing shortages that could impact the safety of city residents. Most of the union leaders CBS2’s Marcia Kramer spoke to on Wednesday said they have members who simply don’t want to put the vaccine in their bodies. That includes cops, firefighters, sanitation workers, and emergency medical personnel. A shortage in each of those agencies would be felt by city residents. And if de Blasio can’t find some way to get them to go along, agencies could be faced with a dramatic drop in city services. “Thousands will walk off from EMS. Thousands of others will walk from fire. Thousands of police officers will walk off,” said Oren Barzilary, president of Local 2507, which represents EMTs and paramedics.

    The archbishop assigned to the US military has said that Catholic troops should not be forced to take COVID-19 vaccines if they violate the individual's conscience, regardless of whether cells from aborted fetal tissue were used in their creation or testing. Archbishop for the Military Services Timothy P. Broglio issued his opinion in a statement on Tuesday, seeming at odds with Pope Francis' strong encouragement for all Catholics to get vaccinated.  'Notwithstanding the moral permissibility of these vaccines, the Church treasures her teaching on the sanctity of conscience,' Broglio wrote. 'Accordingly, no one should be forced to receive a COVID-19 vaccine if it would violate the sanctity of his or her conscience.' The latest DoD administrative data shows that about 20 percent of active duty troops are Catholic, a similar rate to the general US population.  Archbishop for the Military Services Timothy P.

House Democrats unveiled a tax package on Monday that would force distributions from one's nest egg if the value of individual retirement accounts, 401(k) plans and other retirement stashes exceed $10 million. Thiel, a PayPal co-founder, owns a Roth IRA that was worth $5 billion in 2019, according to a ProPublica report published in June, based on tax-return data. The IRA was worth less than $2,000 two decades earlier. The House legislation would require Thiel to withdraw all but $20 million, nearly emptying the account, according to tax experts.VIDEO2:4802:48House passes tax plan to pay for $3.5 trillion spending packageSquawk BoxRoth IRAs are a type of after-tax account.

    TENS of thousands of care workers face the sack within weeks if they don’t get a Covid jab. NHS figures show 39,000 care home staff in England still had not had their first vaccine by Monday – despite first getting the offer in January. 1Tens of thousands of care workers face the sack in WEEKS if they don't get a Covid jabCredit: Alamy Many will now miss the deadline to get double-jabbed before it becomes a legal requirement on November 11. The eight-week gap between doses means Thursday was the cut-off for the first jab. Unions warn the already short-staffed sector will take a huge hit from the tough rule and some homes could even be forced to close. Rachel Harrison, of the GMB workers’ union, said: “Even in a best-case scenario we will lose tens of thousands of key workers if the jab is forced on them. “How will care bosses deal with these huge staffing vacancies? How can they reassure people that residents will receive safe care?” Unison’s Christina McAnea added: “Instead of encouraging much-needed recruitment into care,...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It’s a common question: Do you need to get vaccinated if you’ve already had COVID? Epidemiologists say there’s no doubt a vaccine will boost your natural immunity, but can you be forced to get vaccinated if you can prove you have antibodies? A new lawsuit aims to answer that question.

    A San Francisco, California, union representing local sheriffs' deputies is warning that officers will quit or retire if they are forced to receive the coronavirus vaccine. "The problem we are faced with now is the strict San Francisco Mandate which is vaccinate or be terminated," the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (SFSO) wrote in a Facebook post Friday. "If deputy sheriffs are forced to vaccinate a percentage of them will retire early or seek employment elsewhere." STUDENTS ASK SUPREME COURT TO BLOCK INDIANA COLLEGE'S COVID VACCINE MANDATE The post stated the majority of officers are vaccinated, but that the union believes that continuing to wear face masks should be sufficient for those who are not. "Approximately 160 out 700 Deputy Sheriffs [that] are not vaccinated prefer to mask and test weekly instead of being vaccinated due to religious and other beliefs," the post continues. "Currently, the staffing at the SFSO is at the lowest it has ever been due to the past 9-month applicant testing restriction placed on the Sheriff's Office by the Mayor." The union added that the city...
