Musk Says Tesla Could Hit 2 Million Electric Cars This Year

At Tesla's 2022 shareholder meeting on Thursday, Tesla shareholders voted to approve a three-for-one stock split.

That means the number of shares will triple, the price on the day of the split will be reduced by a third, and the company's valuation will remain the same, but it will allow investors to buy shares at a lower price.

This is Tesla's second stock split in the past two years, but Tesla did not specify an effective date.

In terms of autonomous driving, Musk said that a non-beta version of the fully autonomous driving (FSD) software will be launched this year. Currently, the subscription fee for FSD is $199/month.

In terms of raw material supply, Musk once again said that the decision to recycle the battery was "very smart." Tesla's Texas plant will also begin mass production of 4680 cells by the end of the third quarter.

In terms of production capacity, Musk expects Tesla to produce 2 million electric vehicles this year. Production of the Cybertruck will begin in mid-2023, but the specs and pricing will be different.

At the same time, Tesla is preparing to build a total of 10 to 12 gigafactories, and may announce the location of another factory later this year.

However, when it comes to the current economic situation, Musk also said that there may be a "mild recession."

Tencent will cancel some outsourced free canteen benefits

On August 4, Tencent issued an internal document saying that from August 15, the restaurant benefits of some outsourced employees will be cancelled. The existing supper coupons can be used normally, but the subsequent use of the canteen will be charged.

The internal notice also mentioned that the current benefits of outsourced employees enjoying Tencent's free shuttle will not be affected for the time being.

An internal employee interviewed said the reform was based on "cost reduction and efficiency gains".

According to Tencent's financial report for the first quarter of 2022, the company's net profit for the reporting period was 23.4 billion yuan, down 51% year-on-year. At the same time, Tencent's administrative expenses reached 26.7 billion yuan, which mainly includes share-based compensation expenses, research and development costs, and employee costs.

"Outsourcing" is one of the flexible employment methods frequently used by many Internet companies .

According to Photon Planet , the current outsourcing business of major Internet companies is mainly concentrated in general, non-critical, unstable and labor-intensive positions.

At the same time, in most Internet companies, the benefits package of outsourced employees is usually different from that of regular employees.

Yu Minhong: Allow Dongfang to select losses for five years

Recently, in the closing speech of the 2022 Yabuli China Entrepreneurs Forum Tianjin Summit, Yu Minhong, chairman of New Oriental, said about its live streaming platform "Oriental Selection":

"Don't be in a hurry, do it slowly, allow five years of loss, and lose 100 million a year without a problem."

Yu Minhong revealed that when the anchors selected by Dongfang were teachers, their annual income exceeded one million at the highest, and now they are anchors with an annual income of up to 200,000 to 300,000. Since last year, the salary of the core members of New Oriental has dropped by at least 60%-70%, but none of them have left.

Regarding the future development direction of Oriental Selection, Yu Minhong also said:

"Eastern Selection does not have a GMV (gross merchandise transaction) requirement, but the products it sells must be real good products and provide real services to ordinary people. As for when GMV will rise in the future, I don't care."

"Nature" heavy paper: pig heart "resurrection" 4 hours after death

In 2019, a research team led by neuroscientist Nenad Sestan at Yale University in the United States found that installing a perfusion system in a pig brain that had been dead for 4 hours could "reanimate" the pig brain:

They took brains from pigs that died 4 hours later and connected their carotid arteries and veins to a perfusion device. The device simulates the beating of a heart and supplies artificial blood to pig brains. And these artificial blood can deliver oxygen and drugs to cells, preventing further damage to brain cells.

This experiment shattered scientists' understanding of the death process.

Now, 3 years later, they found in a follow-up study that by placing a perfusion system on the whole body of the dead pig , it can not only maintain the activity of brain cells, but also allow cells in other organs in the pig to avoid death and restore function. The heart even started beating again after 4 hours.

This experiment is based on the whole body perfusion system "OrganEx" developed by the research team.

OrganEx contains centrifugal pumps, pulse generators, hemodialyzers, drug delivery systems and more

The perfusate mainly includes liquid containing pig's own blood, synthetic hemoglobin (the protein that carries oxygen in red blood cells), etc.

Through "OrganEx", the research team successfully established normal blood circulation in the dead pigs, so that the blood flow, blood pressure and oxygen levels in the pigs returned to normal, and even the body stiffness and corpse spots on the dead pigs disappeared.

In short, the systemic perfusion of the pig body by the OrganEx system has successfully reversed the time, and the state of multiple organs, tissues and cells in the pig body has been dialed back to the state where the pig has just died and ischemia soon.

AirTag is helping more people find lost luggage

Delayed flights and crowded airports are causing more bags to be lost on the road as demand in the airline industry surges.

As a result, many people are actively using trackers such as AirTag, Tile, etc. to help them find their lost luggage, rather than waiting for the airline to notify.

DJ Conrad Gray flew EgyptAir from Kenya to Paris for a wedding party. But his luggage was lost by the airline, and his Find My app showed that the Air Tag in his luggage was in Cairo, thousands of miles away.

So Gray took action immediately, bought a dress and borrowed DJ equipment, and was finally able to keep going.

Two weeks later, when he saw the AirTag indicating that the luggage had returned to Kenya, he went to retrieve it without waiting for the airline to notify him.

Although waiting for the luggage to be brought back is inevitable, the tracker can allow the lost person to take the initiative to grasp the status of the luggage, so as to make better use of this already delayed time, instead of waiting for the airline to not wait. exact call.

And the design of trackers such as AirTag themselves makes them very capable of this "job":

Their thin and light size doesn't take up luggage space; because they use low-power wireless communication, they don't interfere with flight and can be checked in safely; and their batteries are durable.

However, even with a tracker, it does not mean that the luggage will be successfully retrieved.

Judie Kavanagh lost her luggage while traveling to Mexico for work. She saw her bag zip around the city on Tile's app, but couldn't do anything about it.

At that point, all Tile could give her was: "I can see my luggage has more adventures than I've been through."

Apple iPadOS 16 may be delayed by a month

According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple plans to delay the release of iPadOS 16 until October, which means that the iPad software will not be released alongside iOS 16 in September as usual.

The delay is said to be due to Apple's ongoing work to resolve a bug with the iPad's front-of-stage scheduling feature, "Stage Manager." This feature allows users to perform multiple tasks at the same time, resize windows, and jump between different applications.

This feature is expected to be limited to the M1 iPad Pro and iPad Air models, and may not be supported on older iPads.

On Aug. 1, NASA updated its list of rules requiring all future commercial space missions to be led by former NASA astronauts.

The rule update draws "lessons" from the first private astronauts to arrive on the International Space Station mission, the report said.

In April, Axiom Space sent three paying space travelers and a former NASA astronaut to the International Space Station for space missions, allegedly putting pressure on the schedules of existing astronauts on the International Space Station.

In addition to requiring former NASA astronauts to serve as lead commanders, NASA also requires commercial space missions to submit requests at least 12 months in advance, as well as requiring space travelers to undergo microgravity training before launch.
