Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk took the stage at the Tesla Design Studio to reveal the Tesla Model 3. "It's very important to accelerate the transition to sustainable transport," Musk said. "The last time there was this level of carbon concentration in the atmosphere was 11 million years ago."
"Beyond global warming there are 53,000 deaths per year from auto emissions," Musk added.
Tonight, Musk released the first official details on the company’s most important car to date, the Tesla Model 3. The base version of the all-electric vehicle will have a range of 215 miles, a continuous pane of glass on the rear roof, and front and rear trunks. Musk added that the car could comfortably fit a 7ft surfboard. The glass roof is similar to the one on the Model X, made with layers of gla
Former Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne said he would love to work with the Indian cricket team. Warne said he would not hesitate to coach a side that has the backing of billion plus supporters.
Leg-spin legend Shane Warne on Friday expressed his desire to coach the Indian cricket team if he is approached for the role in the near future.
Former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri is currently the team director. He is expected to leave his post after the conclusion of the World Twenty20 tournament.
The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to appoint a full term coach for the national side.
And Warne said that he had never said no in his life to anything when it comes to the game and is open to coach the side if such an opportunity arises.
"I would love to work with the Indian t...
Zika now has a face to go with the name. New microscopy images of the virus reveal a bumpy, golf ball‒shaped structure, similar to that of the dengue and West Nile viruses, researchers report March 31 in Science. It’s the first time scientists have gotten a good look at Zika, the infamous virus that has invaded the Americas and stoked fears that it is causing birth defects and a rare autoimmune disease.
Cracking Zika’s structure is like getting the blueprints of an enemy’s base: Now scientists have a better idea of where to attack. “This certainly gives us great hope that we will be able to find a vaccine or antiviral compounds,” says study coauthor Michael Rossmann of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., who’s known for mapping the first structure of a common cold virus in 1985.
In the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, an overzealous set of proteins and cells begins to chew away at the brain’s nerve cell connections, a study in mice suggests.
That finding, described March 31 in Science, adds to a growing body of research that implicates excessive synaptic pruning, a process that shapes the young brain by culling unused connections, with disorders later in life. The new work pins the loss of nerve cell–connecting synapses on particular immune system molecules and a notorious Alzheimer’s-linked protein.
By uniting these multiple strands of evidence, the study may help explain the earliest steps in Alzheimer’s march of neural destruction. “No one has put it together in quite this way,” says neuropathologist John Trojanowski. If the same process happens in humans,
A sick bat caught by hikers not far from Seattle has now been confirmed to have the first case west of the Rockies of the deadly bat disease white-nose syndrome.
First noticed in North America in the winter of 2006-2007, the disease exterminated some whole colonies of hibernating bats on the East Coast, though some species have proved less susceptible. White-nose syndrome has now swept from coast to coast, the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed March 31.
So far the USGS’s National Wildlife Health Center has only confirmed the one case, in a little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) that hikers found near North Bend, Wash., on March 11 and took to an animal welfare center for care. Genetic testing identified it as a little brown bat most likely from the West instead of an accidental hitchhike
The first still from the new Baywatch film is out and features the squad of lifeguards that star in the movie - that means a Priyanka Chopra-shaped hole among the red since she plays the main antagonist (name of Victoria Leeds, no confirmation on whether she is or isn't a lifeguard).
The photo features Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandria Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach as Mitch, Matt, Summer and CJ - played in the original series by David Hasselhoff, David Charvet, Nicole Eggert and Pamela Anderson. Also in the picture are the characters played by actors Jon Bass and Ilfenesh Hadera.
Indian film producer Guneet Monga of Sikhya Entertainment is taking her first step into making international language cinema with The Ashram, for which she has roped in actors like Kal Penn, and Melissa Leo and Radhika Apte.
With Ben Rekhi as the director, the film, also starring Sam Keeley and Hera Hilmar, is an English-language spiritual fantasy thriller set in the mystical world of Himalayan yogis.
"Telling stories from India for a global audience has always been exciting. This is my first step in English language. I am looking forward to working with the amazing talent from both the worlds," Ms Monga told IANS.
Kal Penn wrote in his tweet on Thursday: "Pumped for this and excited to finally be working with @guneetm!"
The project went on floors on Thursday in Manali in northern Indi...
Oshiwara in the Western Suburbs may have fallen off the real estate radar over the past couple of years, but it is quickly rising up the ranks once again. We give you the top 5 reasons why this region might be worth your while.
1 – New Commercial Hub in the Making
The Mumbai Metropolitan Development Authority (MMRDA) is coming up with the Oshiwara District Center (ODC) which will be modelled after the famous Bandra-Kurla Complex. Once that happens, global and Indian corporates are sure to invest here, boosting employment generation while encouraging the development of residential projects to house the many professionals who will work here
2 – Like BKC, but better
The government has learnt from its experience with the BKC which has more commercial projects than residential, leaving littl
Sleep problems in young adults, especially women, are significantly linked to chronic pain and even worsening pain severity over time, researchers report. Overall, 38 percent of young adults with severe sleep problems at initial evaluation had chronic pain at follow-up, compared with 14 percent of those without initial sleep problems.
Early identification and treatment of sleep problems may help reduce later problems with musculoskeletal, headache and abdominal pain in young adults.
"In contrast, the presence of pain generally doesn't predict worsening sleep problems during the transition between adolescence and young adulthood," said Dr Irma J Bonvanie from University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
The team analysed relationship between sleep problems and pain in nearly 1,750 young adult...
Women's health concerns are a little different from those of men. If you're a woman, these tips will soon have you feeling fit and energetic. Here are six simple things that women can do every day (or with regularity) to ensure good health:
1: Eat a healthy diet. “You want to eat as close to a natural foods diet as you can,” says Donald Novey, MD, an integrative medicine physician with the Advocate Medical Group in Park Ridge, Ill. That means a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer processed foods. Eat whole grains and high-fiber foods and choose leaner cuts of meat, fish, and poultry. Include low-fat dairy products in your diet as well — depending on your age, you need between 800 and 1,500 milligrams of calcium daily to help avoid osteoporosis, Dr. Novey says. Avoid foods and
