thanks I'll see what is up*
here is what I was relating
Could the lockdown have side-effects no one has considered? | The Spectator
*Some basic background information and technical explanation on how they can or want to fight viruses
A somewhat painful presentation, but thanks for the link.
Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected & ignorant “Interim Health Officer” of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!
Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependen on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA.
I feel sorry for the tesla employees who have to keep apologizing to the world on behalf of that child CEO of theirs.
its how I feel about being a US citizen, having to always apologize to the ROW for our poor president's behavior. the president of the US does not represent most of the sane americans and I can imagine the same is true of elon and his employees.
those that have options to leave the company, probably will. I expect a lot who are mobile who say 'fark it' and just leave the company. if I was working there, I'd be updating my resume now and floating it. the employment options are actually very good in the car business, in the bay area (I'm getting pings all the time by recruiters).
its a hot field and anyone with experience who can spell CAN BUS can find a job in this field.
its like elon is daring his best people to leave him.
There's a lot of people who dislike California for whatever reason (damn liberals). I'm sure a lot of them are simply for it for that reason alone. Still weird that you would want to move to a state where you can't directly sell your cars. That said, it seems pretty likely that Texas is a prime target for the next factory in the USA, regardless of what they do in California, given that Texas was in the running when they decided to go with Giga Nevada.Not sure where this sudden support for Elon is coming from, considering you cannot buy a Tesla in Texas.
Honestly, as long as Elon remains at the helm, this is the way it's going to be, with regular Twitter outbursts. This is the third (or is it the fourth or fifth or sixth if you count all the COVID-19 tweets?) outburst that has garnered significant negative attention - already had the cave rescue, $420 and now the latest in a series of bad and completely wrong COVID-19 tweets over the past few months.We were so close to going back to normal, now this.
Sorry but I don't agree.old thinking:
Children are falling ill with perplexing inflammatory syndrome thought to be linked to covid-19
we still don't have a good handle on how to deal with this.
I don't see a reason to rush 'back to work' unless we understand things better and can protect people properly.
EVERYONE is taking a 'bath' financially. all boats are not rising in the water (well, some profiteers are, but that's for another thread).
we're all losing ground. it affects us all. the billionaires don't have any more reason to yell than the regular working person; and yet, most working people don't want to rush this before we're ready.
its not just 'old people'. this is world wide and affects everyone. it needs to be taken DEATHLY serious.
work and economy can wait. we're all in this together and we all feel the strain. but there is a time and place for everything.
I will not sacrifice myself to the wall street gods. wont. we have to work this out and there's a lot more work left.
