Read previewThis as-told-to essay is based on a conversation with Matthew Bennett, a 25-year-old mining equipment brokerage representative in Austin. We were able to afford a luxury trip for our 2nd anniversaryWe've been contemplating moving to California in the future, so I planned a trip to Los Angeles to celebrate our two-year wedding anniversary. It was our first luxury trip as a married couple, and we stayed in four-star hotels, rented a luxury car to drive, and enjoyed fine dining at upscale restaurants. Although we're paying significantly more in rent, it's worth every penny for the experiences we've had so far in Austin. AdvertisementWe have one other goal before we have kids: To open a coffee shop.

Alka Bhatt says her solo trip gave her a love of traveling alone. Courtesy Alka BhattI'm now engaged, but solo trips are still integral to my lifeIt's been nearly three years since my solo trip, and when I got home, I felt ready to date authentically. Rather than mold myself to be more desirable, I listened to my wants and needs and looked for compatibility. Within a few months, I met someone special, and a year into our relationship, I felt he was the one. On a weekend trip to DC last month, I took myself out to a fancy Sichuan restaurant after thrifting at a trendy shop.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Bartender Catey Regis had a pricey misadventure buying a used car recently — an experience that speaks to why voters are worrying about the U.S. economy going into this year's presidential election. “To me, it’s a telltale sign about the economy," Regis explained from a bar stool after her shift. But conversations with dozens of voters around Grand Rapids — a city of 200,000 in one of Michigan’s swing counties — show they're thinking about the economy through their own experiences. Grand Rapids is the seat of Kent County, which backed Trump in 2016 and then flipped to Biden in 2020. To the extent that the economy is doing well, there is little confidence that it is necessarily sustainable.

In a memorable montage from the 1999 workplace satire "Office Space," Peter Gibbons, a fed-up office drone, decides to take a stand. For years, the office cubicle was the four-walled avatar of corporate disaffection. Late '90s films like "Office Space," "Fight Club," and "The Matrix" enshrined its detested status. The tech boom arrived, bringing with it open office plans and a Silicon Valley-led gloss of egalitarianism, epitomized by Google's high-profile headquarters redesign in 2005. The top comment on the "Office Space" cubicle clip on YouTube captures the irony of this shift: "I would have killed for a cubicle," the commenter wrote.

AdvertisementFor car buyers, the COE is an extra cost that can easily eclipse the actual price of a car. These BMW family cars cost around $103,000 in 2017. COE prices went up to $67,000 that year for lower-end cars, despite more than 13,000 certificates being made available. On Thursday, COE prices for lower-end cars fell to about $48,000, a steep drop that shocked the market. Meanwhile, while unpopular, Singapore's COE prices are working for now.

Rodriguez and her four siblings grew up working on the farm and selling its products at farmers markets back in the city. Farm to operating tableThough she's close with her family, it was difficult breaking the news to her parents that she didn't want to continue working on the farm beyond high school, Rodriguez says.

Bankman-Fried has pleaded not guilty to charges of stealing billions of dollars from customers at his now-defunct FTX cryptocurrency exchange. "He didn't think rules like 'don't lie' or 'don't steal' fit in to that framework," said Ellison, who ran Bankman-Fried's crypto-focused hedge fund Alameda Research. Ellison said Bankman-Fried asked her to falsify Alameda's financial statements to keep lenders at bay amid a downturn in cryptocurrency markets in 2022. BANKMAN-FRIED THOUGHT HE COULD BECOME U.S. PRESIDENTBankman-Fried was "very ambitious," Ellison said, adding that he "thought there was a 5% chance he would become president some day." Prosecutors have said that Bankman-Fried used customer funds as he pleased, and that the resulting shortfall caused FTX's collapse.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu laughs as crowds gather to celebrate his birthday by unveiling an arch in his honour outside St George's Cathedral in Cape Town, South Africa, October 7, 2017. REUTERS/Mike Hutchings/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsCAPE TOWN, Oct 7 (Reuters) - South Africa's anti-apartheid hero Desmond Tutu could have chosen practically any car in the world when billionaire Warren Buffett offered to buy him a vehicle. The Desmond Tutu Intellectual Property Trust, which manages his legacy, has put the old car on show along with his books and possessions in honour of Tutu's 92nd birthday, which he would have celebrated on Saturday. The car, displayed in Cape Town, the city where the archbishop lived for most of his later life, became a symbol of Tutu's values. Desmond Mpilo Tutu, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his non-violent opposition to white minority rule, died in 2021.

Michael Lewis, the author of "Going Infinite," said being around SBF was a lifestyle "downgrade." Lewis met Sam Bankman-Fried more than 100 times and interviewed his FTX colleagues for the book. So I always felt it was a downgrade moving into his world," Lewis told Emily Donaldson in a Wednesday report in The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper. I would have had as much trouble with this crowd when I was 25," Lewis told Donaldson. Lewis told CBS's "60 Minutes" the crypto exchange would still be making "tons of money" if there hadn't been a run on customer deposits.

Its founder, Wang Chuanfu, once drank battery fluid to impress big-name investors, the Wall Street Journal reported. AdvertisementAdvertisementThe founder of Chinese automaker BYD, Tesla's biggest global EV rival, once drank battery fluid in front of a big-name investor to show just how serious he was about his company, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday. David Sokol, a lieutenant of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, noticed BYD's momentum and visited the company in Shenzhen as early as 2008, according to the Wall Street Journal. BYD saw some hiccups as other Chinese EV makers entered the market and Tesla shored up its Chinese operations. Aside from BYD's unique business achievements, its two head executives also have a noteworthy and fascinating dynamic, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Musk wanted to save that money by moving the servers to one of X's other facilities, in Portland, Oregon. James Musk asked. "The dude is not very good at math," Musk told the musketeers. The lack of servers caused meltdowns, including when Musk hosted a Twitter Spaces for presidential candidate Ron DeSantis. And the Sacramento caper showed X employees that he was serious when he spoke about the need for a maniacal sense of urgency.

Even as prices improve, there was only one car model sold below $20,000 in July. Today, that's not the case, but experts say buyers might see some relief from sky-high car prices soon. The only car model that sold below $20,000 last month was the Mitsubishi Mirage, transacting for an average $19,205, according to Kelley Blue Book. Now, it's challenging to find a ride in the $20,000 price range even if a shopper is considering used. They hit $53,469 in July, down nearly 18% less from $65,108 one year ago, per Kelley Blue Book.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a new investigation into Tesla over steering control problems and loss of power steering in 2023 Model 3 sedan and Model Y crossover utility vehicles. The probe, which the NHTSA called a "preliminary evaluation," could affect up to an estimated 280,000 vehicles in the U.S. The Model Y became the world's best-selling car in the first quarter of 2023, surpassing the Toyota Corolla and others. Tesla's Model 3 is the company's entry-level vehicle and the most affordable electric car it offers. About a year later, Tesla voluntarily recalled some of its Model S and Model X vehicles over power steering problems caused by a flawed software update, eventually fixing the issue with another software update.

[1/2] The BYD Atto 3 EV car is displayed at the 39 Thailand International Motor Expo, in Bangkok, Thailand, November 30, 2022. Siam Motors is in talks with several Chinese automakers about potential partnerships, particularly for high-end electric vehicles, vice president Sebastien Dupuy said in an interview, referring to previously unreported discussions. Thailand is Southeast Asia's largest car producer and exporter, and its second-largest sales market after Indonesia. Japanese automakers are so dominant that for decades they have treated it almost as an extension of their home market. Thailand's pitch to Chinese EV makers has been its existing supply base – built largely for Japanese automakers – and readiness to provide incentives.

Analysts have also suggested that any costs incurred by the carmakers for transitioning to Tesla's North American Charging Standard (NACS) plug standard will likely be immaterial, given the stakes.
