tesla drops 'motors' from its name


the obvious, tedious comparison to make is with apple, which chose to ditch "computer" from its name way back in 2007. it was the moment that the company signposted that the ipod wasn't simply a fluke and that it saw its future in consumer electronics. after all, the change was announced on the same day that it announced the first generation iphone.last summer, elon musk unveiled the second part of tesla's grand master plan for his transportation business. the document included merging the energy generation and storage businesses he was involved with, as well as widening tesla's vehicle portfolio. but beyond that, musk wants to build super-safe autonomous vehicles and enable people to rent those cars out when they're not in use.all of that would turn tesla into a conglomerate with division

second-home buyers look toalternative financing methods


many second-home owners - especially those in the full-time vacation rental business - are looking to purchase another property, but often face stringent financing guidelines. the same challenges, even with historically low interest rates, are plaguing first-time investors seeking to get started. christine karpinski, the author of how to rent vacation properties by owner and profit from your vacation home dream, offers financing observations:it's cheaper to borrow, but it's also much tougher. the easy money days are over. in fact, you probably already know that loans are not easy to get in the post-housing crisis economy. if you plan to take out a mortgage on that vacation home you want, be prepared to put more money down - 20-30 percent is the going rate for investment properties. homeown

if these scouts can work out a budget, you can, too


given what’s going on in the world of politics, and the whipsaw trading in the stock market, maybe you could use some laughs.i know i could.recently, i taught a budgeting session for some scouts in the nation’s capital. i’ve shared with readers before the funny and enlightening outcomes of such sessions and would like to do so again. it’s my effort to constantly emphasize the importance of teaching our children how much it costs to live.typically when people do budgeting sessions with children and teens, they give the students a template in which the expense-line items are already identified. but my goal is to get the children’s perception of the basic costs of life, without coaching that can mask the fact that they don’t yet really get it.in groups of about eight, i had the teenage scouts






home insurance under-purchased product in india, real estate news, et realestate


new delhi: even though there has been an increase in the number of home buyers in the country over the past few years, the number of buyers purchasing home insurance is fairly low. people tend to not purchase home insurance policy mostly due to the lack of awareness and myth surrounding it that it comes with high premiums and involves complex processes.“home insurance penetration in the country is extremely low, the main reason behind the poor demand for this type of insurance is due to lack of awareness about availability of any such product and apprehension that that it will be very costly and difficult to get any claim as documentation is too cumbersome,” says saroj apathy, ceo, ideal insurance brokers pvt ltd.considering the climatic changes and frequent occurrences of natural hazards






interviewing job applicants in a coffee shop is ing barbaric. stop it. stop. it.


interviewing for a new job is stressful as hell. it’s basically like taking an exam, except the results might well determine whether you make rent next month. so it doesn’t really matter how much the interviewer ures you that we’re just having a “friendly, no-pressure chat”.first of all, any “chat” that determines the future livelihood of someone is never going to be “no pressure”. and pretending that it is just makes it even higher pressure! not only does someone need to appear calm, collected, and capable, now they also have to be cool as a cat, because, hey, this is just a no pressure chat, right? ugh.second of all, that’s the minor point. the major point is that you’re a ing barbarian schmuck if you place this theater inside a public coffee shop for all the other patrons to spectate. i

mumbai: ever wondered how two or three-storey buildings in congested localities are redeveloped into 40-storey skys ers in the island city?several builders redeveloping old and dilapidated buildings are allegedly misusing floor space index (fsi) by showing bogus tenants so that they can build higher, said a report prepared by city ngo janhit manch and submitted to the chief minister recently .the report confirms what has long been common knowledge; builders inflate the list of tenants to be rehabilitated free of cost in new buildings. the higher the number of tenants, the more fsi the builders get.“there is no question of bog us tenancies. the voter list, rent receipts and other documents are verified before the tenants' list is prepared,'' mhada ceo sambhaji zende-patil told toi. the cros






usership or ownership: would you rent your car to a neighbour?


what's the fastest car on the road? a rental car. and it is exactly this adage that presents one of the biggest barriers to the successful application of peer-to-peer car sharing.the sharing economy is not a new concept when it comes to vehicles. uber is now the biggest taxi company in the world, yet it doesn't own any cars. zip car has gone from start-up car sharing platforms to firmly established and recognised businesses. but what about those of us who do own cars? when it comes to handing over the keys to our vehicles - in exactly the same way we do for our homes on airbnb - peer-to-peer sharing hasn't gone as well as anticipated.at its surface, the proposition of renting out your car to make extra income when it's not being used is a sensible one, and uber has shown us that 'transport






raiders’ move to las vegas on brink of collapse with reported further loss of fu


raiders owner mark davis has had two setbacks in two days. (ethan miller/getty images)the raiders were all set to move from oakland to las vegas with major financial help from casino magnate sheldon adelson, right up until monday, when he unhappily backed out. no problem, though, because the team had a contingency plan, in which it would replace adelson’s $650 million contribution to a proposed $1.9 billion stadium with similar funding from goldman sachs.then e tuesday, and reports that goldman sachs was no longer ready to help the raiders. that would seem to be a problem, possibly one that scuttles the relocation altogether.

trump’s travel ban threatens u.s. partnership with iraq against islamic state


irbil, iraq — a backlash against president trump’s new immigration rules intensified monday, threatening washington’s relationship with its main partner in battling the islamic state as iraq’s parliament voted for a reciprocal ban on visas for americans.  the iraqi lawmakers’ decision is subject to ratification by the government, but it underscores growing resentment over a u.s. executive order that imposed visa restrictions on iraqis and the citizens of six other muslim-majority nations. foreign minister ibrahim al-jaafari issued a terse statement describing the ban as unreasonable, given that iraq is sacrificing the “blood of its sons” in the front-line fight against the militant group. he urged the united states to reconsider. about 5,000 u.s. troops are stationed in iraq to train and i
