Tesla Inc boss Elon Musk emerged victorious on Friday from a closely watched defamation trial as a federal court jury swiftly rejected the $190 million claim brought against him by a British cave explorer who Musk had branded a "pedo guy" on Twitter. The unanimous verdict by a panel of five women and three men was returned after roughly 45 minutes of deliberation on the fourth day of Musk's trial. Legal experts believe it was the first major defamation lawsuit brought by a private individual over remarks on Twitter to be decided by a jury. The outcome was a triumph for Musk, whose mercurial behavior in a number of instances last year came under close scrutiny from federal regulators and shareholders of Tesla, his Silicon Valley-based electric car manufacturer.The jury's decision signals a higher legal threshold for challenging potentially libelous Twitter comments, said L. Lin Wood, the high-profile trial lawyer who led the legal team for the plaintiff, Vernon Unsworth. "This verdict … [Read more...] about Tesla Boss Elon Musk Wins Defamation Trial Over His ‘Pedo Guy’ Tweet

“Do you accept that a lot of this free stuff that you’re talking about, it sort of reeks of desperation?” That question was put to Labour’s shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, on Radio 4’s World at One earlier this week. And it has become a typical response to the party’s raft of policies on issues ranging from adult social care to tuition fees, train fares to broadband. Voices from the political centre have objected that the manifesto is “packed with freebies”, and there have been japes about what other ridiculous things might be free next. Some have wondered why a government should make free to everyone services that many can afford, or asked why utilities such as broadband should be paid for through tax. This seeps through into society, aided by our post-austerity cynicism about government spending and, by extension, public services.

The one significant exception to the otherwise benign response to a deficient monsoon is pulses, of which tur appears to have been the worst hit. In the past few weeks, retail prices of tur dal rose beyond the Rs 200 per kg mark, provoking widespread resentment.The pressure may have eased in response to several steps that the government is taking. This is welcome, but raises questions about sustainability. Even if prices of tur come down significantly, their persistence above the Rs 100 per kg mark for several months, which is a distinct possibility, will obviously not go down well with consumers. More permanent solutions must be set in motion. In this crisis, steps that can have an immediate impact, both on actual supplies and expectations of continuing price … [Read more...] about What needs to be done to bring down price of pulses
