Elon’s thoughts about those incarcerated over weed crimes are a lot less confusing than the name of his newborn baby boy. His girlfriend, Grimes just gave birth to a baby boy. Shortly after the birth, Musk revealed the name to be X Æ A-12.Grimes later explained the meaning of the unique name but screwed up the name of Elon’s favorite airplane.

“•X, the unknown variable ⚔️

•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)

•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍 + (A=Archangel, my favorite song) (⚔️🐁 metal rat),” the Canadian singer explained.

Musk couldn’t help but correct her on Twitter. Responding to her original “SR-17” tweet, Elon was quick to point out, “SR-71, but yes.”

“I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven but, damnit. That was meant to be profound 🦔,” she wrote.

Law Enforcement & Tech; Facebook Staff Concerns; Musk vs Bezos

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

I mean, you know, on the one hand, stuff that a lot of people have been saying about Trump, some of which I’ve been saying about Trump for some time. But from his former secretary defense, the adult in the room, Mad Dog Mattis, four-star general respected by everyone, lends a veneer, a sheen of both credibility and respectability to the Trump cabinet in the early years. Of course, then he leaves, but does not say anything negative about the president and refuses to go on the media tour that so many other former cabinet officials have done and was under massive pressure for doing so. So many people calling on him, “why are you not making any statements?” Now, of course, the GOP not making any statements either, but still, Mattis is someone who was seen to be above the fray and particularly well respected in the middle of a national security crisis with so many protesters on the streets, a fair amount of violence, the police brutality and the country so incredibly divided.The timing, I think, especially after President Bush made his statement, something that President Bush really did not want to do and I thought, a …

Everything You Need to Know about the Reopening of Nobu Malibu – CSQ | Magazine, Events, Community

Anyone who tells you that Nobu Malibu isn’t the best possible sushi experience you can have in California is lying. The top-notch ingredients, mix of traditional and innovative dishes, and off-menu delicacies—mixed with stunning oceanfront, compelling architecture, and stellar service —have made the restaurant an evergreen success since it made its home on Carbon Beach in 2012 (it spent 13 years before that tucked into a quiet corner of the Malibu Lumber Yard).

The Malibu gem has been greatly missed by Angelenos stuck in quarantine but is once again ready to welcome diners (the restaurant has been offering delivery and takeout, which it will continue to do until it can operate fully). Los Angeles County restrictions will allow for just 60% of its normal capacity, but don’t worry, the oceanfront tables, full menu, and well-trained staff are all back and just as great as you remember. The main changes to the restaurant include: limited walk-ins (guests with reservations must check in with security before being allowed past the valet; others will only be let in when space permits, which likely won’t …

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is getting more comfortable with shutting Donald Trump down.
On Thursday, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all removed a tribute video to George Floyd shared by the Trump campaign, due to a copyright complaint, Reuters reported. The video, called “Healing Not Hatred,” featured Trump speaking about Floyd over protest images and videos (h/t The Verge). It had 1.4 million views before it was removed from the platforms. 

We are working toward a more just society, but that means building up, not tearing down.Joining hands, not hurling fists.Standing in solidarity, not surrendering to hostility. pic.twitter.com/mp8957czvh

It’s not clear what exact image sparked the complaint. But on Friday, Trump decried what he saw as censorship on Twitter, saying the platform was “fighting hard for the Radical Left Democrats. A one sided battle. Illegal.”
Dorsey replied soon after, saying, “Not true and not illegal. This was pulled because we got a DMCA [Digital Millennium Copyright Act] complaint from copyright holder.” 

In a statement to Reuters, Facebook — which owns Instagram — confirmed the DMCA complaint.

Macy then asked, “And if it wasn’t for all the lives providing their service to your [sic] and your company, where would Amazon be today?” Jeff Bezos felt so strongly about this user’s stance that he decided to personally email her back and made it clear that his opinion won’t change.”No, Macy, I have to disagree with you,” he responded. “‘Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. Black Lives Matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and judicial system.”

Microsoft will work to improve the lives of African Americans by pushing for a better justice system, focusing on its own hiring, donating funds to groups tackling racial inequality and buying from more-diverse suppliers, Chief Executive Satya Nadella said in an all-employee email the company published late Friday. And Nadella is looking more closely at his own attitudes and behavior, he said.”I must continue my journey of understanding and empathy and examine actions I take, or don’t take, every day. Listening and learning from my Black and African American colleagues is helping me develop a better understanding of their experience. And I take accountability for my own continued learning on the realities of privilege, inequity and race and modeling the behavior I want to see in the world,” Nadella said in the email.Several tech executives are trying to take a stand against racism after the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black Minnesota man who died last month after a white police officer pinned him to the ground with a knee to the neck. A bystander took video of Floyd’s …

In a letter to employees, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella laid out their efforts to improve diversity and inclusion in Microsoft, and also to support broader societal moves to not just change Microsoft, but the world.The action comes in the wake of the extrajudicial killing of George Floyd, but Nadella notes that “we cannot episodically wake up when a new tragedy occurs.
