Local Very local

Lunch in the USA is typically between 12:00pm – 1:00pm. Of course, there are exceptions. Some schools schedule lunch starting anywhere from 10:00am – 1:00pm. If possible, office-goers leave their offices by 11:30am or 11:45am to avoid long lines (sic. queues) at 12:00pm. Some people may have lunch after 1:00pm, but, that is rare. Rarer still is to see people have lunch after 1:30pm. Generally, those who have not eaten lunch by 1:30pm will skip lunch.

Musk and Tesla/SpaceX/The Boring Co., etc. Completely chaotic 'management'. Tesla will never suceed with constantly moving goalposts that score own goals. You cannot successfully run a company by Tweet, in the same way you
cannot successfully run a country by Tweet! You can panic and chase your own tail, with endless changes, Mr. Musk, but you won't stop those that know how to make cars from beating the hell out of you....... That's what 100 years of experience teaches you.

Helium, critical resource

No, BBC, this comment is a disgrace:
"Meanwhile, Tom Enders is due to leave his job in April. So perhaps he's in a very good position to talk tough, without worrying whom he's upsetting in the process."
Theo Leggett, BBC business correspondent. You assume somebody retiring will always do the wrong thing? Disgusting.

Brannon 'mate'    DUMB, dah, dumb, dumb, dumb! The most idiotic person to ever be selected as Prime Minister. Friend of Brannon and Trump. Born in New York with a Silver Spoon (same as Trump). Fortunately, he won't last long in the job.
When Elon Musk goes to Mars, he can take his fellow charlatans Trump, BoJo and FacebookBoy with him! 'It' follows May who has been quite one of the most awful PMs in modern history (equalled by Brown and Heath).

“Johnson is truly Britain’s Trump. There is no institution, no relationship and no international commitment that he is not willing to sacrifice to achieve a no-deal Brexit. He is turning the Conservative and Unionist party into the English National Party. He must be stopped.”

2019-11-29 and no change! BoJo 'answering' questions.

Pending (and then confirmed) news
Last year, Trump directed the Commerce Department to investigate whether automotive imports pose a threat to national security, with a report due no later than 2019-02-17. If the report finds cause for concern (as everybody expects), it would give him the authority to impose tariffs within 90 days. He has already proposed a 25% tariff on imported autos.
