I GOT INTO TOWN JUST AFTER SUNSET. The lights were on at a place called the Brick House Grill, and if you were out on South Main Street on a Friday night in February, chances are, that’s where you were going. So I went in, too.

I took a seat at the bar. A man two stools over from me struck up a conversation. I told him I was a journalist from Chicago and asked him to tell me about this town. “You know how this town is called Anna?” he started. “That’s for ‘Ain’t No Niggers Allowed.’” He laughed, shook his head and took a sip of his beer.

The man was white. I am white. Everyone else in that restaurant in Anna was white.

Later that night, I realized what shook me most about our conversation: He didn’t pause before he said what he said. He didn’t look around the room to see whether anyone could hear us. He didn’t lower his voice. He just said it.

Mexico deploys forces after reports of deadly ambush of Americans – NBC NEWS

#BREAKINGNEWS

From “NBC NEWS”

Mexican national police and military forces were dispatched to the border state of Sonora on a search operation Monday night following reports that at least five U.S. citizens, including four children, were shot and killed, Mexican authorities said.

The Associated Press quoted relatives as saying a U.S. woman, her 6-month-old twins and two other children, ages 8 and 10, died in the attack. They lived in La Mora, about 75 miles south of the U.S. border, where an offshoot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been a major presence for many years, the relatives said.

USS Navy Gerald R. Ford -CVN78 “integrity at the helm”

USS Gerald R. Ford se dirigió al mar el viernes después de completar 15 meses de mantenimiento y actualizaciones.

Por Noticias mexicodigital

Roberto Medina.

El buque de guerra más costoso de la Armada de los Estados Unidos, el portaaviones USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), partió de Huntington Ingalls Industries-Newport News Shipbuilding y regresó al mar por primera vez desde que comenzó su disponibilidad después del terremoto en julio de 2018 para llevar a cabo las pruebas en mar.

El USS Gerald R. Ford es el buque líder en la clase Ford de portaaviones, la primera nueva clase en más de 40 años, y comenzará el reemplazo gradual de los portaaviones de clase Nimitz.

El barco está equipado con dos reactores de nuevo diseño y tiene un 250 por ciento más de capacidad eléctrica que los anteriores. Las mejoras permitirán al barco cargar armas y lanzar aviones más rápido que nunca.

El clase Ford incorpora avances en tecnología que hacen que el operador sea más capaz y eficiente, a la vez que le proporciona la capacidad de implementar futuros avances en tecnología con relativa facilidad.

Con una mayor capacidad y menores costes totales de propiedad, por ejemplo, mediante la reducción de la mano de obra y las innovaciones, como una mayor producción eléctrica de la central nuclear, el uso de redes de fibra óptica, un mejor control de la corrosión y el uso de materiales nuevos y ligeros, el paquete de transportistas.

CVN 78 y los futuros portaaviones de la clase Ford incrementaron la capacidad de combate y mejoraron la capacidad de supervivencia en una plataforma que seguirá el ritmo de la amenaza en el transcurso del siglo XXI.

Cada buque de la clase Ford operará con una tripulación más pequeña que la de un portaaviones de clase Nimitz y proporcionará un mayor ahorro en los costes de propiedad a lo largo de los 50 años de vida operativa prevista.

CVN-78 honra al 38º presidente de los Estados Unidos y rinde homenaje a su vida de servicio en la Marina, en el gobierno de los Estados Unidos y en la nación. Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial Ford alcanzó el rango de teniente comandante en la Marina, sirviendo en el portaaviones USS Monterey (CVL 26).

Ford se convirtió en presidente tras el escándalo de Watergate y ocupó el cargo más alto del país entre 1974 y 1977.

Breaking news: Tesla Stock goes “Sky Rocket”

Tesla shares soar after crushing third-quarter earnings

Tesla reported third-quarter revenue of $6.3 billion and earnings per share, adjusted, of $1.86 on Wednesday.Shares spiked more than 20% after Tesla posted the surprise profit and said it was ahead of schedule with a new factory in Shanghai.

Tesla delivered a strong third-quarter earnings report after the bell on Wednesday, posting a surprise profit and telling shareholders it is ahead of schedule with a new factory in Shanghai. Shares spiked more than 20% after hours, putting them at their highest price since February.

Here’s what the results were versus analysts’ expectations:

Adjusted earnings per share of $1.86 vs. expected losses of 42 cents per shareRevenue of $6.3 billion, vs. expected $6.33 billion, according to Refinitiv consensus estimates

The electric car maker gave investors plenty to look forward to next year. It released a glossy 28-page investor update filled with photos from its new factory in Shanghai where Tesla said it’s already begun trial production runs.

The company also said it was ahead of schedule on its long-awaited Model Y crossover, which it now expects to launch by next summer. At the same time, Tesla says it is planning to make a limited run of its Tesla Semi truck next year, and hopes to soon announce the location of its European Gigafactory, where it aims to begin making electric vehicles in 2021.

In its Q3 2019 Update, Tesla said:

“Gigafactory Shanghai was built in 10 months and is ready for production, while it was ~65% less expensive (capex per unit of capacity) to build than our Model 3

Tesla shares dropped after the company reported losses of $1.12 per share and $6.35 billion in revenue. At this time last year, Tesla reported a “historic” third quarter with revenue of $6.82 billion and earnings per share of $2.90.

In Q3, Tesla released over-the-air software updates, including a controversial Smart Summon feature, that lets some Tesla drivers use an app to remotely call and control their cars. The cars can, in some situations, come pick them up from a short distance away, navigating a parking lot without any driver behind the wheel to do so.

Margins will be in sharp focus on today’s earnings call, in part, because Tesla launched new Autopilot software upgrades which enabled the company to recognize deferred revenues. The company has been selling more, lower-priced Model 3 vehicles in 2019, and fewer of its higher-priced Model S and Model X’s.

The company said in its Q3 2019 report: “Despite reductions in the average selling price (ASP) of Model 3 as global mix stabilizes, our gross margins have strengthened.”

Specifically, automotive gross margins for Tesla rose to 22.8% in the third quarter, up from Q2 auto gross margins of 18.9%, but still less than the 25.8% automotive gross margins Tesla reported during the third quarter last year. Tesla said that margins were improved in part through “Smart Summon-related deferred revenue recognition, FX and other non-recurring items.” It did not specify what the non-recurring items were.

Tesla CFO Zach Kirkhorn said on an earnings call on Wednesday afternoon that the company recognized $30 million in revenue related to the Smart Summon update.

Today’s third-quarter earnings report is the first for Tesla since the departure of co-founder and former CTO JB Straubel, and since the company completed the acquisition of two companies: A computer vision startup

Top Republicans demand Democrats – call whistleblower to testify

EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS

Obteined By Noticias mexicodigital

Washington — The top Republicans on the House committees pursuing the impeachment inquiry are demanding the public testimony of the whistleblower who reported concerns about President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, as well as other officials referenced in the individual’s complaint, according to a letter obtained by CBS News.

The request is the first time Republican lawmakers involved in the impeachment probe have formally asked Democrats to call witnesses, a possible indication they intend to pursue more traditional channels to counter the investigation even as members seek to disrupt the proceedings themselves.

🇭🇰 Alert: Rudolph Giuliani is said to be under investigation “The New York Times”

By Michael S. Schmidt, Ben Protess, Kenneth P. Vogel and William K. Rashbaum

Washington, Octuber 11, 2019.

Giuliani Is Said to Be Under Investigation for Ukraine Work

Prosecutors are investigating whether the president’s lawyer broke laws meant to prevent covert foreign influence on the government.

The investigation into Mr. Giuliani is tied to the case against two of his associates who were arrested this week on campaign finance-related charges, the people familiar with the inquiry said. The associates were charged with funneling illegal contributions to a congressman whose help they sought in removing Ms. Yovanovitch

Prosecutors are investigating whether the president’s lawyer broke laws meant to prevent covert foreign influence on the government.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of President Trump’s personal lawyers, said his efforts to push for investigations in Ukraine originated with his legal defense.

— Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani broke lobbying laws in his dealings in Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the inquiry.

Mr. Giuliani has denied wrongdoing, but he acknowledged that he and the associates worked with Ukrainian prosecutors to collect potentially damaging information about Ms. Yovanovitch and other targets of Mr. Trump and his allies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his younger son, Hunter Biden. Mr. Giuliani shared that material this year with American government officials and a Trump-friendly columnist in an effort to undermine the ambassador and other Trump targets.

Federal law requires American citizens to disclose to the Justice Department any contacts with the government or media in the United States at the direction or request of foreign politicians or government officials, regardless of whether they pay for the representation. Law enforcement officials have made clear in recent years that covert foreign influence is as great a threat to the country as spies trying to steal government secrets.

A criminal investigation of Mr. Giuliani raises the stakes of the Ukraine scandal for the president, whose dealings with the country are already the subject of an impeachment inquiry. It is also a stark turn for Mr. Giuliani, who now finds himself under scrutiny from the same United States attorney’s office he led in the 1980s, when he first rose to prominence as a tough-on-crime prosecutor and later ascended to two terms as mayor of New York.

It was unclear how far the investigation has progressed, and there was no indication that prosecutors in Manhattan have decided to file additional charges in the case. A spokeswoman for the United States attorney in Manhattan, Geoffrey S. Berman, declined to comment

How Did Rudy Giuliani Get Here?

A criminal investigation of Mr. Giuliani raises the stakes of the Ukraine scandal for the president, whose dealings with the country are already the subject of an impeachment inquiry. It is also a stark turn for Mr. Giuliani, who now finds himself under scrutiny from the same United States attorney’s office he led in the 1980s, when he first rose to prominence as a tough-on-crime prosecutor and later ascended to two terms as mayor of New York.

It was unclear how far the investigation has progressed, and there was no indication that prosecutors in Manhattan have decided to file additional charges in the case. A spokeswoman for the United States attorney in Manhattan, Geoffrey S. Berman, declined to comment.

Mr. Giuliani said that federal prosecutors had no grounds to charge him with foreign lobbying disclosure violations because he said he was acting on behalf of Mr. Trump, not the Ukrainian prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, when he collected the information on Ms. Yovanovitch and the others and relayed it to the American government and the news media.

“Look, you can try to contort anything into anything, but if they have any degree of objectivity or fairness, it would be kind of ridiculous to say I was doing it on Lutsenko’s behalf when I was representing the president of the United States,” Mr. Giuliani said. Mr. Lutsenko had chafed at Ms. Yovanovitch’s anticorruption efforts and wanted her recalled from Kiev.

Mr. Giuliani also said he was unaware of any investigation into him, and he defended the pressure campaign on Ukrainians, which he led, as legal and above board.

CNN and other news organizationsreported that federal prosecutors were scrutinizing Mr. Giuliani’s financial dealings with his associates, but it has not been previously reported that federal prosecutors in Manhattan are specifically investigating whether he violated foreign lobbying laws in his work in Ukraine.

– ‘It’s a February Storm in September’: Montana 40″ of snow

Sept. 30, 2019, 3:59 a.m. ET

HELENA, Mont. — A powerful winter storm socked much of Montana with a wave of heavy snowfall on Sunday, with weekend totals climbing to 40 inches in some places, and breaking century-long daily records.

” Montana’s State Tropper Police “

.
Never mind that it has only just turned to fall”. Gov. Steve Bullock declared a winter emergency as cars skidded off highways, communities lost power and farmers despaired at the damage to crops that were still in the ground.

“It’s a February storm in September,” said Jeff Mow, the superintendent of Glacier National Park in the state’s mountainous northwest. “We’re used to this kind of storm, just not this time of year.”

The snowfall totals were staggering for any time of year: 40 inches in Browning since Friday, and 38 inches in St. Mary.

. Records were tumbling across the state. On Saturday, the National Weather Service recorded snow at the Missoula International Airport. There had not been a trace of snow recorded on any Sept. 28 since 1893.

.. Great Falls was blanketed by 9.7 inches of snow on Saturday, topping a daily snowfall record of 6.1 inches that had been set in 1954. By Sunday afternoon, another 4.8 inches of snow had fallen there.

“We have very wet and heavy snow, which has compacted down, making it look less than 14 inches,” said Thomas Pepe, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Great Falls. “But we’re just getting into round two of snowfall — it’s starting to intensify again. It’s pretty bleak out there.”
