Tesla owners who get a friend to buy a Tesla before the end of the month could win a free car. It's part of Tesla's revamped referral program, which incentivizes owners to spread the word about the brand. Tesla runs a loyalty program whereby owners get a unique referral code they can share with friends. Tesla significantly pared back the referral program in recent years after saying it was too expensive to the company. Credits can also buy Tesla fans a factory tour or an entry to win a futuristic Cybertruck pickup.

The lawsuit against the IRS is only the latest in a series of counterpunches by the president's son. Now, Hunter Biden could be heading to trial in the midst of his father’s reelection effort. Hunter Biden, according to his memoir, tumbled into drug addiction after the death of his older brother, Beau, in 2015. Earlier this year Hunter Biden hired high-profile attorney Abbe Lowell, a legal heavyweight known for also representing Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. “And it is not even touching on the issue of whether people think that he is being prosecuted because he’s Hunter Biden," she said.

Epic Healing Eugene — Oregon’s first licensed psilocybin service center — opened in June, marking the state’s unprecedented step in offering the mind-bending drug to the public. The clients can't buy mushrooms to go, and they must stay at the service center until the drug wears off. Oregon Psilocybin Services spent two years establishing regulations and began accepting license applications in January. She expects Oregon’s psilocybin program, currently receiving millions in taxpayer dollars, to be fully supported by licensing fees by mid-2025. Little, brown psychedelic mushrooms can be found growing in fields or in the woods, but they can closely resemble poisonous varieties.

Now, many news outlets are seeing an increase in downloads and usage of their apps. Meta's decision to block user access to news in Canada is not having an entirely negative effect on the country's major publishers. The Globe and Mail in August saw a 98% increase in app downloads and a 27% increase in daily users; CTV News saw a 157% increase in app downloads and an 83% increase in daily usage; La Presse saw a 32% increase in app downloads and an 8% increase in usage; and The National Post's downloads were up almost 10%, with daily usage up 3%. Meanwhile, CBC News saw downloads and daily usage remain relatively flat. "In recent weeks, we have seen an increase in CTV News app downloads, which demonstrates the importance of having access to online news from a Canadian perspective."

All of these were ways to find meaning and solace in three lives snuffed out in an all-too-familiar American story that began with an angry man with an AR-15. But coming on the 60th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington and his “I have a dream” speech, it was hard for some not to see a larger context as well in the lives lost in Saturday’s shooting in Jacksonville, Fla. His life was marked by “resilience and positivity, even in the face of adversity,” his brother, Quantavious Laguerre, wrote online. never had a record, never received a referral in school and never got into a fight,” Quantavious Laguerre wrote on a GoFundMe page. “He was a kindhearted and gentle soul who loved playing video games and supporting his family and friends.”Ms. Carr and Mr. Gallion both lived lives shaped by their church and family.

The Meta-owned company has quietly made changes in recent months that have dramatically reduced referral traffic to media outlets, more than half a dozen publishers told me. The move has put considerable dents in the daily traffic publishers see, with the damage appearing to be more pronounced among those who publish more hard news-oriented content. One publisher told me they’ve witnessed a more than 30% drop in year-over-year referral traffic. The recent changes reduce the already lackluster levels of referral traffic even more. Meta has long argued that publishers need Facebook more than Facebook needs publishers.

Amazon is adding a new charge for third-party sellers who ship their own products instead of paying for the company's fulfillment services. Previously, there was no such fee for sellers. The e-commerce giant also charges sellers a referral fee between 8% and 15% on each sale. Regulators have examined whether Amazon pressures sellers into using its services in exchange for preferential treatment on the marketplace. In a blog post on Monday, the company argued sellers continue to flock to its sprawling marketplace "because it's a great value."

But after a second check from the blood pressure machine, and taking his own blood pressure at home, it had returned to much more acceptable levels. At the hospital, his first blood pressure cuff had been too small, and it was changed only at his request. Now, a new clinical trial highlights how much an improperly sized blood pressure cuff can distort blood pressure readings taken by automated blood pressure devices. But frequently, only regular-sized cuffs are used to take someone’s blood pressure, even though clinical guidelines recommend using cuffs suited for a person’s arm circumference. Either way, experts say, a one-size-fits-all approach can skew blood pressure readings, interfering with core metrics that doctors use to monitor and treat heart conditions.

Ben Alistor started selling tanning mitts on Amazon FBA as a side hustle with his partner. I started my business selling products on Amazon FBA, or Fulfillment by Amazon, where people can sell items on the platform, but where Amazon handles the shipping, in June 2018. I tested out a few different price pointsSelling on Amazon FBA is a fine balance between running out of stock and not selling enough products. But we kept ordering some products, such as some toys, for four years because they kept selling. I work around 50 hours a week in total, but I've now streamlined my Amazon business so I work around 10 hours a week on it.

Sales of Tesla's (TSLA.O) China-made vehicles fell 31% in July from June, data from China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) showed on Thursday, marking its first month-on-month decline since December, when it struggled with rising inventories. Tesla sold 64,285 China-made EVs in July, up 128% from 28,217 a year earlier when a scheduled upgrade to its Shanghai factory curbed production. Meanwhile BYD (002594.SZ), with its Dynasty and Ocean series of EVs and petrol-electric hybrid vehicles, said it posted a 61% year-on-year rise in July sales to 261,105 passenger vehicles, including 18,169 which were exported. CPCA is set to publish full data for July later this month, with sales of new energy passenger vehicles in China estimated to reach 750,000. Still, BYD outsold Tesla China by 29% in EV sales in the first half while its lower-priced Dolphin EV outsold Tesla's Model 3, which is expected to be revamped in September.

But when it comes to Mr. Trump and the senior people around him, this obstruction charge is much broader than the assault on the Capitol. And aiding and abetting is part of the theory of the obstruction charge in Count 3. It’s a belt-and-suspenders approach: If a legal issue arises that weakens or eliminates one charge, the others remain, and the case can continue. One charge that was not included in the indictment falls under 18 U.S.C. This charge was part of the referral from the Jan. 6 committee.

How soon is too soon to call a progressive and libertarian policy obsession a public policy fiasco? In the case of Oregon’s Drug Addiction Treatment and Recovery Act, better known as Measure 110, the moment can’t come soon enough. The Drug Policy Alliance, which spent millions to help pass the measure, called it “the biggest blow to the drug war to date” and celebrated its supposed success in a slick video. “Often, she says, someone is passed out in front of the lobby’s door, blocking her entrance. The other day, a man lurched in, lay down on a Forte couch, stripped off his shirt and shoes and refused to leave.”

Federal prosecutors have introduced a new twist in the Jan. 6 investigation by suggesting in a target letter that they could charge former President Donald J. Trump with violating a civil rights statute that dates back to the post-Civil War Reconstruction era, according to three people familiar with the matter. The letter to Mr. Trump from the special counsel, Jack Smith, referred to three criminal statutes as part of the grand jury investigation into Mr. Trump’s efforts to reverse his 2020 election loss, according to two people with knowledge of its contents. Two of the statutes were familiar from the criminal referral by the House Jan. 6 committee and months of discussion by legal experts: conspiracy to defraud the government and obstruction of an official proceeding. But the third criminal law cited in the letter was a surprise: Section 241 of Title 18 of the United States Code, which makes it a crime for people to “conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person” in the “free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States.”Congress enacted that statute after the Civil War to provide a tool for federal agents to go after Southern whites, including Ku Klux Klan members, who engaged in terrorism to prevent formerly enslaved African Americans from voting. But in the modern era, it has been used more broadly, including in cases of voting fraud conspiracies.

SEOUL, July 14 (Reuters) - Tesla (TSLA.O) began selling its Model Y rear-wheel drive car on Friday in South Korea at a price of 56.99 million won ($45,139), the automaker' s website said, making the vehicles eligible for the maximum rate of government subsidies. Local media said the Tesla Model Y cars were made in China. A tweet by Tesla Korea announcing the sale showed a video of cars being produced in its Gigafactory in Shanghai and being shipped. With subsidies, coupled with Tesla's referral programme, the price can be reduced further to below 50 million won, the company said. In Seoul, consumers can receive subsidies of up to 8.6 million won for EV vehicles priced below 57 million won.

The participants, who were all older than 71, were then screened for dementia using the Dementia Screening Interview, the study said. In people with distance visual impartment, that jumped to 19.5%; 21.5% for near visual impairment; and 32.9% for people who had moderate to severe visual impairment or were blind, according to the study. Another factor that might lead to the correlation is a possible decrease in opportunities and community participation that could come with vision loss, Silverman said. “When it comes to vision impairment and blindness, an estimated 80 plus percent is either preventable or even reversible,” he added. “If you notice that you have vision that is starting to be impaired, get it checked out.”But not every case of vision loss is treatable.

Before deciding to purchase a Tesla, many consumers will need to know: "How much will it cost to charge this thing?" It all depends on the Tesla model you buy and where you decide to plug in, but charging a Tesla generally costs significantly less than refueling a gas car. How much does it cost to fully charge a Tesla at a charging station? At these rates, the cost of charging a Tesla is about three times cheaper per mile than the cost of fueling a gas-powered car. The cost of charging a Tesla is more than three times cheaper per mile than the cost of fueling a gas-powered car.

BANGKOK, July 12 (Reuters) - Thailand's poll body will refer to the Constitutional Court a case over whether Pita Limjaroenrat, leader of election winners Move Forward, should be disqualified as a parliamentarian over a shareholding issue, local media reported on Wednesday. The referral of the case was reported by three media outlets and confirmed to Reuters by an election commission source, who declined to be identified because they were not authorised to speak to media. Pita, who is seeking to become prime minister, has been investigated over allegations that his ownership of shares in media firm iTV at the time of his registration made him ineligible to stand in the May 14 election. Pita has maintained iTV was not an active mass media organisation.

CNN —Caster Semenya, the South African Olympic champion runner, has won her appeal which she had submitted to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to end “discriminatory” testosterone limits imposed on female athletes, the ECHR said on Tuesday. Semenya is hyperandrogenous – meaning she has naturally high levels of testosterone – and has been fighting against rules introduced in 2019 by World Athletics – track and field’s governing body – which regulates levels of the hormone in female athletes. A three-time 800m world champion, Semenya lost an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in April 2019. “The case was filed against the state of Switzerland, rather than World Athletics. It is difficult to estimate how many people have DSD traits – many live their entire lives without ever knowing they have one.

July 11 (Reuters) - Europe's top human rights court ruled in favour of Olympic runner Caster Semenya on Tuesday, saying courts in Switzerland should give her a new chance to fight a requirement that female athletes with high natural testosterone take drugs to lower it. The ECHR ruled, by a slender majority of four votes to three, that Semenya's original appeal against World Athletics regulations had not been properly heard. The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled in 2019 that World Athletics' rules were necessary for fair female competition. At the time, Semenya said the rules were discriminatory, and contraceptive pills made her feel "constantly sick". Semenya won gold in the women's 800 metres at the 2016 Olympics and is also a three-time world champion in the distance.

[1/2] A Tesla Model 3 electric vehicle (EV) is displayed at the China International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS) in Beijing, China September 1, 2022. Toyota (7203.T) offered a discount on its bZ4X EV, and Nissan (7201.T) offered an incentive on its Ariya EV. Volkswagen's (VOWG_p.DE) joint ventures with SAIC and FAW also announced price cuts in China on their ID-series EVs on Friday. AlixPartners said while China's EV market will continue to grow rapidly, intensifying competition and excess capacity will also drive a shakeout. In one example, Chinese automakers have invested $1.4 billion in Thailand since 2020, now dominating the Thai EV market after taking share from the Japanese brands that have long operated there.

Tesla, which had previously stopped the referral program as it was too expensive, up to now has focused on real-time adjustments to prices posted on its websites. It revived the referral program recently to boost sales, analysts said. The EV sales market globally has become more competitive, forcing automakers to cut prices or boost incentives in several markets. The automaker has used its industry-leading profit margins as a weapon in the EV price war, putting pressure on both legacy automakers as well as cash-strapped EV startups. A number of Tesla owners in China posted their referral codes online and invited others to use them.
