Tesla needs over $1 billion in cash over the next 6 months, and Wall Street is going nuts figuring out where it’s going to come from

Between the moment you’re reading this and the end of 2018 Tesla needs to come up with about a billion dollars to give to creditors. And right now it doesn’t look like the company has it. So forget the libel lawsuits and the Twitter wars, the SEC investigations and tearful interviews from CEO Elon Musk. Forget the race to 5,000 Model 3s and the “production hell” turned “delivery hell” and all the hours of rework. Try to forget all the drama with hip-hop star Azealia Banks (if you possibly can).

What Fashion Can Learn From California

What Fashion Can Learn From California

LOS ANGELES, United States — “California is a nation, not a state.” The slogan, screen-printed onto T-shirts and scribbled onto handmade signs, reflects the sentiment of a growing constituency of Californians who believe that their home should no longer be part of the United States but a country in its own right.
