Elon Musk's tweet last Friday seeking "hardcore streetfighters" to join Tesla's litigation department has been derided and trolled with thousands of mock job applications. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO's Twitter job ad came one day after a bombshell report accused the tech mogul of sexual harassment in 2016. According to Insider , a former flight attendant and SpaceX employee alleged that Musk exposed his penis to her and offered to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage. SpaceX later paid the woman $250,000 to settle her sexual misconduct accusation, Insider reported. Musk has dismissed the allegation as a "politically motivated hit piece." The world's richest man also recently made news for agreeing to buy Twitter in a $44 billion deal on April 14. A month later, he announced that the deal was "temporarily on hold" pending details over fake accounts. In the tweeted job ad for lawyers to join Tesla, Musk said, "Tesla is building a hardcore litigation … [Read more...] about Elon Musk’s job ad for a “hardcore” lawyer gets trolled on Twitter

Shortly before the end of the school day in South Florida, a young man entered the premises with a shotgun, and proceeded to mow down his former classmates. Following the carnage, 17 were dead, and an all-too familiar pattern of events unfolded. Another mass shooting by a loner that had slipped under the radar.

It emerged he’d participated in paramilitary training with a white supremacist group, had been banned from school for bringing in ammunition in his rucksack and was described as an “oddball” who loved guns. Other kids said they were scared of him. How many times have we heard this story?

Walmart is apologizing for a new flavor of ice cream called "Juneteenth," which sparked a backlash and criticism that the company was attempting to cash in on the holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the U.S. In a statement to Fox Television Stations, Walmart said it is reviewing its product assortment "and will remove items as appropriate." It added, "Juneteenth holiday marks a celebration of freedom and independence. However, we received feedback that a few items caused concern for some of our customers and we sincerely apologize." Walmart didn't immediately return a request for comment to CBS MoneyWatch.

Marc Hinton is a senior sports writer for Stuff who has covered the NZ Breakers since their inaugural season. OPINION: Lip service or legitimate change? Breakers fans and critics alike will be watching closely as the head coaching era of Mody Maor unfolds at New Zealand’s only Australian National Basketball League club. Maor has come in promising plenty after being unveiled as the successor for compatriot, and close friend, Dan Shamir. The extrovert Israeli had served as chief assistant for the last three years, and was promoted when the under-contract Shamir departed after a testing last couple of seasons under the shroud of the global pandemic. Instead of a new-broom approach, the Breakers have opted for continuity with their head coach. Interestingly, Maor inherits just three players from the squad that struggled to a club-worst 5-23 record in the season just gone – veterans Tom Abercrombie and Rob Loe (both coming off sub-par seasons) and re-signed rookie Sam Timmins … [Read more...] about New Breakers coach Mody Maor makes big promises – now, can he deliver on them?
