Tesla shares fell by more than eight per cent on Friday as worries about an SEC investigation increased and CEO Elon Musk gave The New York Times an interview in which he discussed his mounting problems at the company. Despite everything, Musk says he’s just going to keep tweeting.

Star Trek: Discovery’s head makeup artist teases those big Klingon changes. Plus, a ton of new American Horror Story promos, and Stephen Amell discusses Arrow’s most important new character. Spoilers, away!
Not everyone who is close to death — or thinks they are, at least — has a “near-death experience”. But those who do often hallucinate that they leave their bodies, meet otherworldly beings, or see bright flashes and tunnels of light. Those who take the psychedelic drug dimethyltryptamine, or DMT — a compound found in the hallucinogenic Amazonian brew known as ayahuasca — experience many of the same things.
It was a cute joke at the beginning. "I watch Game of Thrones, but there are so many characters, I can't keep them all straight". But then the show got a second season, a third season and became one of the biggest, most popular TV shows in history. Names like Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Brienne of Tarth and Arya Stark became almost as recognisable as Darth Vader, Captain Kirk, Frodo Baggins and Indiana Jones.
Alex Jones has been hit with bans and suspensions by platforms ranging from Apple’s Podcasts app to YouTube to Google+ in recent weeks. There are few companies that want to be associated with dangerous claims that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. One consequential company that’s been overlooked is WordPress.com owner Automattic, which is now bringing down its own banhammer on conspiracy theorists.
Visual effects are often used for flashback sequences in movies when an older actor plays a much younger version of himself, like Kurt Russell did in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But the results are never quite perfect, or at least don’t reach the impressive level of pixel perfection that compositor Rousselos Aravantinos did with this 4K digital touch-up that made this model look 30 years younger.
I enjoy a good puzzle (not the jigsaw kind) which is probably why I love games like The Legend of Zelda or The Room series on iOS. But as clever as I (mistakenly) believe I am, I don't think I'd have any chance of discovering every last hidden panel, drawer, switch and secret mechanism on this beautiful but fiendishly complicated puzzle desk from Craig Thibodeau.
Videos games are an expensive hobby, often demanding a great deal of trust whenever you buy a new one. Buying a game winds up being a number of things. A purchase is a gamble. It’s an encouragement. It’s a participation in exploitation. And it’s a conversation with the many people who brought you the game.
Game of Thrones may be ending in 2019, but the song of ice and fire will continue. HBO has greenlit a prequel series about Westeros’ Golden Age of Heroes, helmed by Jane Goldman (the Kingsman series, Kick-Ass) and A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin. This age spans thousands of years, and there’s no way a show is going to be able to cover all of it.
So, here’s what we think this new show could be about — and furthermore, should be about.
Star Trek: Discovery has been a huge success for CBS, which means that, after years of letting the TV side of the franchise lie low, suddenly the network wants more Star Trek. As in, “fetch me Sir Patrick Stewart, so help me god” and “let’s make CBS All Access basically Star Trek 24/7” levels of more Star Trek. Naturally, we have some suggestions!
Mastering a racing game is a lot easier with your hands on a steering wheel instead of a tiny thumbstick, but after shelling out hundreds of dollars on a console and $US60 ($82) on a game, do you really want to cough up another c-note for a racing wheel? If you've got access to a 3D printer, you could make this cheap rack and pinion mechanism instead and add a tiny thumb-steered wheel to your controller.
In August 1943, the USS Abner Read struck a Japanese naval mine while conducting patrols in the Bering Sea. The explosion sheared the ship's entire stern section, sending it and 71 US sailors to the bottom of the Bering Sea. Lost for 75 years, the World War II destroyer's severed stern has finally been found off a remote Alaskan island.
