+Vox Exclusive: Trump Pressured Sessions to "Find Dirty" on FBI Officials that Were Potential Witnesses Against Him

If this isn't obstruction of justice, what would it take?

"Trump’s efforts to discredit Strzok and Page came after Trump was advised last summer by his then-criminal defense attorney John Dowd that Page was a likely witness against him in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice, according to two senior administration officials. That Trump knew that Page might be a potential witness against him has not been previously reported or publicly known.

"The effort to discredit Strzok and Page has been part of a broader effort by Trump and his allies to discredit and even fire FBI officials who they believe will be damaging witnesses against the president in Mueller’s obstruction of justice probe.

Oh, wait. I'm sorry his attorney is meeting with Mr. Mueller, we'll have to start without him.

NYT: Where Countries Are Tinderboxes and Facebook Is a Match

Amazing reporting that almost no one else does. Lynchings, beatings, burning down stores all inspired by hateful lies online but human rights groups can't get Facebook to help.

"False rumors set Buddhist against Muslim in Sri Lanka, the most recent in a global spate of violence fanned by social media.

... "“You report to Facebook, they do nothing,” one of the researchers, Amalini De Sayrah, said. “There’s incitements to violence against entire communities and Facebook says it doesn’t violate community standards.”

Tesla Attacks the Messenger - Yet Again

"Jalopnik observed the exchange and wrote "Tesla's War With The Media Is Just Unhinged At This Point." Slate said Tesla's tone "now borders on hysterical." While Fast Company said the company's extreme reaction makes it look like it's hiding something.

All three outlets noted that Tesla's reaction — shouting "fake news" and alleging a conspiracy — seems straight from the Donald Trump playbook.


+Engadget "Tesla's troubles with media reports on working conditions and union organizingtook a hard right turn on Monday. In response to Reveal's report on Tesla's workplace safety, the auto manufacturer accused the Pulitzer-finalist of being "an extremist organization working directly with union supporters to create a calculated disinformation campaign against Tesla."

Tesla Model 3 Electronics Superb Mechanics Not So Much

"Tesla Model 3 critic and Detroit veteran Sandy Munro discussed much of the results of his company’s teardown of the electric car in a recent episode of Autoline After Hours. In a lengthy discussion with the network’s panel, Munro explained what he liked about electric car, even gushing at one point and saying that the Model 3 electronics are comparable to a flight controller found on the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II stealth multirole fighter.

"In his most recent Autoline interview, Munro noted that his team is almost finished with its analysis and teardown of the electric car. While the Detroit veteran still maintained that he doesn’t have much good to say about the vehicle’s mechanical components, the Model 3’s electronics, battery, and suspension are a completely different matter.

Testing Photoshop Raw Profiles

I'd already stylized this but wanted to test Adobe's new, installable "Profiles" for Raw processing in both Lightroom and Photoshop, so I added a warm profile from Prolost (a set costs $11-$21). With this new feature LR and PS ship with several "profiles" that convert RAW files in different fashions. You can create your own or install someone else's as easily as copying into the settings file. Once covers both apps.

Tesla's Cash Flow

+Bloomberg "Tesla says it won’t require external funding, but there’s a strong likelihood it will. In 2011, Musk said he felt “confident” that Tesla wouldn’t ever “need” another financing round; there have been six equity rounds since. When Moody’s Investors Service Inc. recently cut Tesla’s credit rating further into junk territory, it said the carmaker will likely require a $2 billion capital raise this year. New bonds look out of the question given the downgrade and Tesla’s continuing cash burn, which suggests equity could be called upon to fill any gap.

"Which brings us back to that stock price."
