  1. Tesla Model Y


    Electric car maker Tesla has brushed off supply chain issues and the global microchip shortage to report record quarterly sales and profits.

    Revenues rose to $13.76bn in the third quarter of the year, up from $8.77bn 12 months earlier.

    The company, led by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, posted a net profit of $1.6bn and sold 241,391 cars.

    "We achieved our best-ever net income, operating profit and gross profit," Tesla said.

    The firm said China remained its main exporting hub and it planned to roll out a different type of battery in its standard vehicles worldwide.

    The new lithium iron phosphate batteries are cheaper than traditional batteries but offer lower range, Reuters reported. Analysts said this could help keep costs down and address part shortages.


    Supply chain issues

    Tesla said it had faced a "variety of challenges" to keep its factories running, which included the global shortage of car microchips, congestion at ports and "rolling blackouts".

    There is currently a worldwide shortage of computer chips, also known as semiconductors, which are used in millions of products including cars, washing machines and smartphones.

    However, Tesla added it planned to grow its "manufacturing capacity as quickly as possible" and expected to see a 50% rise in car sales annually.


    "While Fremont factory produced more cars in the last 12 months than in any other year, we believe there is room for continued improvement. Additionally, we continue to ramp Gigafactory Shanghai and build new capacity in Texas and Berlin," it said.

    "The rate of growth will depend on our equipment capacity, operational efficiency and the capacity and stability of the supply chain."

    The majority of Tesla's revenue came from the sales of its lower priced Model 3 and Model Y cars, which rose 87% to 232,102.


    Impressive numbers

    Victoria Scholar, head of investment at Interactive Investor, said Tesla's results beat analysts' expectations.

    "This is an impressive set of numbers in the context of the ongoing global chip shortage headwind," she said.

    Telsa said electric vehicle (EV) demand continued to "go through a structural shift".

    "We believe the more vehicles we have on the road, the more Tesla owners are able to spread the word about the benefits of EVs," it added.

    After publicly condemning Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's decades-old racist yearbook photo in February 2019 as "racist, unacceptable and inexcusable at any age," Terry McAuliffe, who is now running to succeed Northam, struck a different tone just a few months later, dismissing the photo as a youthful mistake -- and even denying it was Northam in the photo at all.

    "Listen, even if it had been him in the blackface. You know," shrugged the former Democratic Virginia governor. "It was a dumb mistake 40 years ago."

    "I grew up in New York. And in all fairness folks, I didn't know what blackface was. You know, I had not experienced, we had no racism issues, honestly, growing up in Syracuse," he said at an event promoting his book in July 2019.
    CNN's KFile reviewed McAuliffe's remarks, which were made in an interview with the Hudson Union Society, a members-only social group in New York City, which hosts celebrities and well-known figures. A clip of the interview was uploaded to YouTube last January.

    The interview came just months after McAuliffe, along with other Democratic politicians, called on Northam to resign after it was revealed Northam appeared in a racist yearbook photo from his medical school, showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the KKK's signature white hood.
    Northam initially apologized for the photo, though he declined to confirm which costume he donned and declined to resign. He then later recanted his apology, insisting that neither man was him. A school investigation was not able to determine whether it was Northam
    Northam endorsed McAuliffe in the Democratic primary this past spring and previously served as McAuliffe's lieutenant governor from 2014 to 2018.

    In a statement, McAuliffe campaign spokesperson Christina Freundlich told CNN, "Terry has always been clear that what happened in that photo was wrong.
    Northam and McAuliffe campaigned together on Thursday as Northam voted early in the gubernatorial race. The race between McAuliffe and Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin is closer than either side anticipated. A recent Monmouth University poll shows a deadlock between the two candidates with each candidate having 46% support among registered voters.

    "It doesn't matter how Terry McAuliffe feels," he added. "That photo that was in that yearbook was so offensive to the African-American community, that I can't be in their shoes. And we have just got to get past this. I knew, at a young age, blackface, 1985, you just didn't do it."
    In July 2019, McAuliffe would tell the audience there for his book appearance that it wasn't Northam in the photo of his yearbook.

    "He didn't do Ku Klux Klan in fairness," McAuliffe said. "It's now out he wasn't either one of them."
    While Northam rejected calls to resign, he publicly pledged to learn from his racial blind spots and to combat racial inequality. Working with Black political leaders in the state, he was able to tighten gun laws, restore voting rights to nearly 70,000 felons, approve voting rights legislation and abolish the death penalty in the commonwealth.



  3. Scientists identified the genes that played a role in many female elephants of Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park being born without tusks.

    A deep enough wound will leave a scar, but a traumatic event in the history of an animal po[CENSORED]tion may leave a mark on the genome itself. During the Mozambican Civil War from 1977 to 1992, humans killed so many elephants for their lucrative ivory that the animals seem to have evolved in the space of a generation. The result was that a large number are now naturally tuskless.

    A paper published Thursday in Science has revealed the tooth-building genes that are likely involved, and that in elephants, the mutation is lethal to males.

    Although evolving to be tuskless might spare some surviving elephants from poachers, there will likely be long-term consequences for the po[CENSORED]tion.


    Normally, both male and female African elephants have tusks, which are really a pair of massive teeth. But a few are born without them. Under heavy poaching, those few elephants without ivory are more likely to pass on their genes. Researchers have seen this phenomenon in Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, where tuskless elephants are now a common sight.

    Female elephants, that is. What no one has seen in the park is a tuskless male.

    “We had an inkling,” said Shane Campbell-Staton, an evolutionary biologist at Princeton University, that whatever genetic mutation took away these elephants’ tusks was also killing males.

    To learn more, Dr. Campbell-Staton and his co-authors started with long-term data, including prewar video footage of Gorongosa’s elephants.


    They calculated that even before the war, nearly one in five females were tuskless. This might reflect earlier conflict and poaching pressure, Dr. Campbell-Staton said. In well-protected elephant po[CENSORED]tions, tusklessness can be as low as 2 percent.

    Today, half of Gorongosa’s females are tuskless. The females who survived the war are passing the trait to their daughters. Mathematical modeling showed this change was almost certainly because of natural selection, and not a random fluke. In the decades spanning the war, tuskless females had more than five times greater odds of survival.

    And the pattern of tusklessness in families confirmed the scientists’ hunch: it seems to be a dominant trait, carried by females, that’s lethal to males. That means a female with one copy of the tuskless mutation has no tusks. Half of her daughters will have tusks, and half will be tuskless. Among her sons, though, half will have tusks and the other half will die, perhaps before birth.

    The team sequenced the genomes of 11 tuskless females and seven with tusks, looking for differences between the groups. They also searched for places in the genome showing the signature of recent natural selection without the random DNA reshuffling that happens over time. They found two genes that seemed to be at play.

    Both genes help to build teeth. The one that best explains the patterns scientists saw in nature is called AMELX, and is on the X chromosome, as the team expected. That gene is also involved in a rare human syndrome that can cause tiny or malformed teeth. AMELX is adjacent to other crucial genes whose absence from the X chromosome can kill males. In the elephant genome, “We don’t know what the exact changes are causing this loss of tusks, in either one of those genes,” Dr. Campbell-Staton says. That’s one of the things the researchers hope to figure out next.

    They also want to learn what life is like for a tuskless elephant. Elephants normally use their tusks to strip tree bark for food, dig holes for water and defend themselves. “If you don’t have this key tool, how do you have to adjust your behavior in order to compensate?” Dr. Campbell-Staton said.

    And the rise of tusklessness may affect not just individual elephants, but the po[CENSORED]tion as a whole, Dr. Campbell-Staton said, since fewer males are being born.


    “I think it’s a very elegant study,” said Fanie Pelletier, a po[CENSORED]tion biologist at the Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec who was not involved in the research but wrote an accompanying article in Science. “It’s a very complete story as well. All the pieces are there,” she said.


    In her own research, Dr. Pelletier has studied bighorn sheep in Canada. As trophy hunters targeted the males with the biggest horns, the sheep evolved to have smaller horns.

    The change in sheep is subtle, she said, unlike the elephants’ total loss of tusks. And the elephants’ genetic change has actually compounded their problems, Dr. Pelletier said. Even if poaching stopped tomorrow, tusklessness would keep indirectly killing males, and it could take a long time for the frequency of this trait to drop to normal levels.

    Dr. Campbell-Staton agreed that although the elephants have evolved to be safer from poachers, this isn’t a success story.

    “I think it’s easy when you hear stories like this to come away thinking, ‘Oh everything’s fine, they evolved and now they’re better and they can deal with it,’” he said. But the truth is that species pay a price for rapid evolution.

    “Selection always comes at a cost,” he said, “and that cost is lives.”

  4. From interior options that finally feel luxurious to bigger screens to Super Cruise hands-free driving, the half-ton Sierra is much improved.


    2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Gets Fresh Styling, Enhanced Tech, and a Truly Upscale  Denali - New York Folk


    • The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 gets a makeover, with the most meaningful updates happening inside.
    • GMC makes the Sierra's interiors a lot nicer thanks to bigger digital displays and richer materials, particularly on upper trims.
    • The new Sierra 1500 will go sale early next year and range in price from around $32,000 to over $80,000.


    We can only imagine the look on our grandpappy's face if he peeped inside some of today's fanciest full-size pickup trucks, which have become more and more like luxury vehicles, and that now includes the thoroughly redesigned 2022 GMC Sierra 1500.


    2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Gets Fresh Styling, Enhanced Tech, and a Truly Upscale  Denali


    For quite some time, the brand that has touted its top-of-the-line Denali models as some of the most luxurious in the biz has fallen short of those lofty expectations. Simply put, the Sierra Denali's recent interiors haven't looked as rich as those inside rivals such as top-tier Ram 1500s. GMC clearly recognized the disparity in quality and tech features, which are arguably the biggest changes to the '22 Sierra, and they're not limited to Denali trims.

    The half-ton Sierra's lineup has been rejiggered with a renamed base model (it now goes by Pro) and the addition of the AT4X and Denali Ultimate trims, which add even more features and nicer interiors to the regular AT4 and Denali they're based on. Every 2022 Sierra 1500 enjoys a new-look front end, with fresh grille designs and an updated bumper. A pair of revised LED headlights with newly styled daytime running lights round out the changes. Some lights will also animate in different sequences when starting the truck or walking away and toward it.

    Beginning with the SLE model, the Sierra's cabin benefits from a significant makeover that includes a new 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 13.4-inch center touchscreen. The gauge cluster is highly configurable, and the updated infotainment system now supports Google's app store, maps, and voice assistant. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard with the big touchscreen, too, and a huge heads-up display is also available. Along with a newly designed center console, models with front bucket seats feature a T-shaped electronic shifter; those with a front bench seat have a column-mounted shifter. Additionally, upper trims now come standard with a power-adjustable steering column.

    The new AT4X is very similar to the recently revealed Chevy Silverado ZR2, except its exterior doesn't look nearly as extroverted. As the most off-road-capable model in the Sierra 1500 family, it has advanced Multimatic spool-valve dampers, electronic locking front and rear differentials, and extra underbody protection. It rolls on black 18-inch wheels shod with gnarly Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Mud-Terrain tires. The AT4X features a Terrain Mode that allows one-pedal driving in low-speed situations where momentum and wheel placement are important. A set of rocker guards are also available to better protect its door sills from dents and dings.

    The new Denali Ultimate helps GMC's most po[CENSORED]r model finally live up to its luxury branding. It has dark "Vader" chrome exterior trim and rides on 22-inch rims buoyed by adaptive dampers. Climb inside to appreciate its numerous leather-wrapped surfaces and open-pore wood. The headliner is made of microsuede, the leather front seats feature 16-way power adjustments and massage functions, and the Bose premium audio system plays through 12 speakers that include ones on the door panels with stainless-steel grilles. The Denali Ultimate also comes standard with Super Cruise, GM's hands-free-driving tech; it's optional on the regular Denali, too.

    The half-ton Sierra continues to be offered with a 355-hp 5.3-liter or a 420-hp 6.2-liter V-8. A turbocharged 2.7-liter inline-four and a Duramax diesel 3.0-liter inline-six are also available. Last year's 4.3-liter V-6 has been dropped. GMC says the turbo-four has been updated to be more refined and make more torque (420 pound-feet versus 383), and its eight-speed automatic has been recalibrated to be more responsive. Thanks to chassis alterations, the Duramax diesel is now compatible with the Max Trailering package, which allows it to tow up to 13,200 pounds. Previously, diesel-powered Sierras could only pull up to 9200 pounds.

    The 2022 Sierra 1500 is expected to reach dealerships in the first quarter of next year. The entry-level Sierra Pro will start at $32,495 and the Denali Ultimate opens at $80,395–$19,100 more than the regular Denali. The AT4 starts at $60,995, and the AT4X costs $74,995 before any options.

    Hockey New Brunswick estimates about 10 per cent of participants won't be lacing up this year because of vaccination requirements.


    Vaccination requirements are potentially keeping thousands of children from playing sports this season, say some of the province's largest athletic associations. 

    Hockey New Brunswick estimates about 10 per cent of players have "opted not to play this season due to the vaccine requirements," said the group's executive director Nic Jansen. 

    In New Brunswick, players aged 12 and older are required to show proof of vaccination in order to play. 

    Last year, HNB saw nearly 15,000 youths register for minor hockey. 

    Jansen said this season's registration numbers won't be finalized until mid- to late November, but even then, they won't be able to say for sure how their numbers are affected by COVID restrictions. He said his estimates are based on discussions with some minor hockey associations.

    Since registration for many of them closed before the province imposed the proof of vaccination requirement on Sept. 15, participants who requested full refunds after that date are likely vaccine-related, said Jansen.



    Nic Jansen, executive director of Hockey New Brunswick, says some players already registered requested refunds after the vaccine mandate was announced by the province.


    Many other players are just now taking to the ice, having opted to vaccinate following the Sept. 15 announcement, rather than sit out the season. 

    When proof of vaccinations were first announced, Jansen said Hockey New Brunswick got a lot of negative feedback. He said some people mistakenly thought it was a Hockey New Brunswick regulation, rather than one imposed by the province on all non-profit and sports organizations. 

    "But overall, I think everyone's supportive of the decision and it's keeping the players safer," said Jansen. 



    Basketball New Brunswick, meanwhile, is expecting a roughly 2.5 per cent drop in registration, based on the numbers from a recently run program, says Tyler Slipp, the director of operations. 

    Slipp said BNB was in the middle of running a program for 12- and 13-year-olds last month when the province imposed the requirement for full vaccination. 

    Of the 200 youths taking part, five kids pulled out completely, while 14 others missed some activities while waiting to fulfil the vaccination requirements, said Slipp. 



    Tyler Slipp, the director of operations for Basketball New Brunswick, says some players have already pulled out of basketball programs after the vaccine requirement was announced.


    If that 2.5 per cent drop-out rate holds for overall registration, that could mean nearly 200 young people will not play this year, based on the roughly 7,000-strong association. 

    With the current state of COVID-19 cases in the province, Slipp worries that even more parents will decide to pull their kids out of sports — fully vaccinated or not. 

    "I've had those tough discussions with my own wife about, 'What activities are we going to put our kids in with how the case numbers look in the province? And what do we want to expose them to?'"

    If parents decide not to register their fully vaccinated children, out of an abundance of caution, the number of kids sitting out this season could go even higher, says Slipp.


    Spectators in rinks

    Unlike last year, there are currently no limitations on the number of spectators in a facility, as long as they have proof of vaccination and wear masks, of course. 



    Following guidelines established by the province, Hockey New Brunswick isn't limiting spectators in rinks, although some facilities will impose their own restrictions this season.


    Last year, all facilities limited the number of spectators who could watch games. Most small rinks, for example, allowed only one person per player — and no one was allowed to watch practices.

    Jansen said current restrictions from the province don't place any limits on spectators, but he said he's aware of some rinks that have imposed their own restrictions. 


    School sports

    The Department of Education was asked on Wednesday about what school sports would look like this year, but no information was provided by publication time. Similarly, no information was provided about spectators at games or the use of school facilities by outside groups.

    The website for the New Brunswick Interscholastic Athletic Association (NBIAA) states that all coaches and officials must be fully vaccinated or, if they're government employees, must do regular sentinel testing and masking.  

    All students who are eligible to be vaccinated must be fully vaccinated in order to participate in NBIAA activities. 

    Like last year, there will be no handshakes or any other "unnecessary physical contact" with the opposing team before or after the game. 

    "Both teams can stand facing the opposing team to show sportsmanship after each match/game," the site suggests. 

    Spectators are not permitted inside schools and group sizes are limited at outdoor events. Out-of-province travel, and games against out-of-province teams, are not permitted.



  6. Down a narrow, winding street in central Rome, golden cobblestones shine out from the footpath in front of homes, etched with the words: "Deportata Auschwitz" ("deported to Auschwitz").

    One of the stones is dedicated to Rossana Calo, who was just two years old when she, along with her mother, was transported hundreds of miles to the Nazi death camp; on arrival, she was killed in the gas chambers.
    These plaques, commemorating more than 1,000 victims snatched from their homes in the Italian capital's Jewish Ghetto in October 1943, are a sobering reminder of the country's dark past.
    Italy entered World War II as an ally of Adolf Hitler in 1940, but Benito Mussolini's Fascist regime had already embraced anti-Semitism. Months after he was overthrown in 1943, German authorities began to round up Jews in Rome and other major cities in the country's north.
    More than 75 years after Mussolini's inglorious death at the hands of partisans, the debate about fascist ideology -- and its continuing appeal to some Italians -- has been reignited in the wake of the government's attempts to control the coronavirus pandemic.
    On October 9, the headquarters of Italy's largest trade union and a hospital emergency ward in Rome were targeted during angry protests against the country's Covid-19 "Green Pass."
    The Green Pass, which came into force last Friday, requires all workers -- from café staff to care workers, taxi drivers to teachers -- to show proof of vaccination, a negative test or recent recovery from infection. Italy -- once Europe's Covid-19 epicenter -- now has the continent's strongest vaccine mandate.
    Members of the neo-fascist Forza Nuova were arrested in relation to the violent attacks in Rome.


    Gold cobblestones outside front doors in Rome's Jewish Ghetto commemorate people arrested and deported to Auschwitz. Two-year-old Rossana Calo was one of those.

    Fascist parties banned

    "Fascism never went away in this country," said history professor Simon Martin, the author of several books on Italian fascism. "Italy has not confronted its past. There is no appetite for this, I think, on either side."
    Martin said thousands of people still line up each year on anniversaries, such as Mussolini's birth, death and "March on Rome," to visit his tomb in Predappio, 200 miles northeast of Rome, despite the fact he ran a repressive police state, and was responsible for brutal colonial campaigns and massacres during his 20 years in power.
    "[It] has a book of condolence which has to be changed on a regular basis because it fills up," he said.


    A 1952 law banned the reconstitution of fascist parties in Italy, but they have reformed under alternative names, Martin told CNN during a visit to the Jewish Ghetto.
    The violence of the Green Pass protests on October 9 has led to mounting calls to dissolve neo-fascist groups in the country. Organizers canceled an anti Covid-19 green pass demo in the northeastern city of Trieste planned for Friday and Saturday, and urged protesters not to attend over fears of violence.
    This week, Italian lawmakers in both the upper house Senate and lower house voted in favor of a motion put forward by the country's center-left parties, which calls on Prime Minister Mario Draghi's government to dissolve Forza Nuova and all movements of neo-fascist inspiration. Draghi and his Council of Ministers will now consult legal experts before announcing a decision.
    Forza Nuova's lawyer Carlo Taormina told CNN the group is currently being dismantled and has not been active as a political movement for 20 months.
    In response to the violent scenes on October 9, tens of thousands of people demonstrated against fascism in Rome's San Giovanni Square at the weekend.
    "I came here because it is important to send a message," Jacopo Basili, 30, told CNN at the rally organized by Italy's main trades unions. "What happened was very bad, as if we were returning to 100 years ago in Italy. Today we must say no. It is not possible."

    Another demonstrator, Leone Rivara, told CNN he doesn't believe the threat of fascism in Italy today compares to the Mussolini era, but that social tensions in the country have been "aggravated by the pandemic," and that "forces that declare themselves democratic ... cross boundaries and exploit the weakness, the fragility, the anger, the delusion of the people to [upset] the democratic balance of this country."
    One group accused of doing just that is the Fratelli d'Italia, or Brothers of Italy, a right-wing party that made international headlines when one of its members, Rachele Mussolini -- granddaughter of Benito -- was elected to Rome's city council for a second term earlier this month.
    Rachele Mussolini won more than 8,200 votes -- the highest number tallied for any candidate -- and a huge increase on the 657 votes she received in the 2016 ballot.
    "I will strive not to disappoint those who trusted me and to conquer those who don't know me ... My goal is to keep working for my city to give it back [its] lost dignity," she wrote in a Facebook post following her re-election.


    CNN contacted Rachele Mussolini, via her press secretary, to ask if she finds it hard to distinguish herself from the fascist associations tied to her last name, but has not received a response.
    She is not the first descendant of the Italian dictator to go into politics. Her stepsister Alessandra served as a member of parliament in Silvio Berlusconi's center-right People of Freedom alliance, and was a Member of the European Parliament.
    Opinion polls suggest Fratelli d'Italia, which grew out of the neo-fascist Italian Social Movement party (MSI), is currently the most po[CENSORED]r party in Italy.
    The Fratelli d'Italia party -- along with Matteo Salvini's right-wing Lega and the centre-right Forza Italia -- recently backed radio host and lawyer Enrico Michetti in his fight to become Rome's next mayor.
    On Monday, Michetti lost the run-off vote by roughly 20%. During the campaign, his office was defaced with the word "fascista."
    Asked why Fratelli d'Italia is still affiliated with fascism, the party's leader Giorgia Meloni told CNN her party is not a breeding ground for such a regime.
    Andrea Ungari, professor of contemporary history at Rome's LUISS university said he believes a small proportion of Italians could be defined as having fascist beliefs.
    Neo-fascist groups Forza Nuova and CasaPound did not participate in Italy's most recent elections.
    "It's difficult to define Fratelli d'Italia as a fascist party," Ungari said. "Of course, there are some declarations ... some harsh attitudes ... it is clearly a right-wing party but with the difference between right and extreme right."
    "In Italy there is the heritage of fascism of course but sometimes it's a term utilized by the left to monopolise the political debate," Ungari warned.


    Numerous reminders of fascism

    Monuments linked to racism, colonialism and shameful moments in history have been removed from countries around the world in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests.
    In Italy though, architecture from the 20 years of Benito Mussolini's rule is maintained. Unlike Germany, which outlawed and eradicated Nazi symbols in the aftermath of World War II, Italy left numerous reminders of the fascist era standing.
    Rome's sports complex -- Foro Mussolini, or Mussolini's forum -- which houses the city's main soccer stadium Stadio Olimpico, has been renamed Foro Italico, but an almost 60-foot marble obelisk bearing Mussolini's name still towers outside it.
    Ostiense railway station, which was built to commemorate Hitler's visit to Rome in 1938 and boasts a mosaic themed around the Italian fascist ideology that modern Italy was the heir to ancient Rome, is still one of the city's major railway stations.


    The Mussolini-commissioned building Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana is the centerpiece of Mussolini's Esposizione Universale Roma neighborhood and remains a symbol of the country's fascist era.

    And the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana -- a six-storey marble tower constructed as the centerpiece of Mussolini's new neighborhood, Esposizione Universale Roma, in the city's southwest -- remains engraved with a phrase from his 1935 speech announcing the invasion of Ethiopia.
    "I think the real problem with those statues is there's nothing to contextualize them ... [nothing] to tell us what fascism was about," said history professor Martin.
    Martin said that while it may not be practical to tear down all of Italy's fascist-era buildings, because of the sheer numbers involved, "it should be contextualized. We need to talk about what it means."
    As for the motion to ban neo-fascist groups and parties, it "would be a statement of intent by the government," said Martin, but it is unlikely to change people's ideas.
