Reagan Simmons Hancock was ecstatic about having a new baby, a daughter named Braxlynn who was due next month. “I’m so ready for Brax to be here,” the 21-year-old Texas mom recently told a friend. “I’m scared she’s fixing to come faster. I feel like she’s going to be here before November.”

That friend, Abby Mathis, remembers telling Reagan, “Let’s pray she stays in there as long as she can so she’s extremely healthy.”

But Reagan’s and her unborn baby’s lives would be cut short days later, on Oct. 9—when another so-called friend, Taylor Rene Parker, allegedly killed her, snatched her unborn child from her belly, and fled before a state trooper pulled her over.

According to police, Parker told the Texas trooper she had just had a baby on the side of the road and the newborn wasn’t

Tesla Makes Another Model S Price Cut

Tesla‘s (NASDAQ:TSLA) cars just keep getting cheaper. That’s good for consumers, but it may not be so good for Elon Musk’s electric car company, currently the most valuable automaker in the world. 

The company has cut the cost of its upscale Model S sedan by $3,000. On Tesla’s website, the starting price for the Long Range Plus version is now listed as $71,990, while the souped-up Performance configuration now starts at $91,990. That comes on the heels of a $5,000 price cut in late May.

A shot in the arm or a shot in the foot?

The higher-priced Teslas, the Model S and Model X, generate better margins than the lower-priced Model 3 and Model Y. But sales of the S and X have been slumping even as overall sales, especially for the Model 3, have soared.

Tesla Model S price cut makes long-range EV more affordable

Tesla has quietly dropped the price of its Model S electric sedan, trimming several thousand dollars from the luxury EV. Oldest vehicle in Tesla’s current range, the Model S still puts most electric rivals to shame when it comes to range, while the recently-announced Tri Motor All-Wheel Drive “Plaid” edition car proves speed is no problem, either.

Still, it’s fair to say that for the last few years the main sales action has been around Tesla’s more affordable cars. The Model 3 and the Model Y are both considerably cheaper than the Model S, not to mention feature newer technology and design. They’re also easier for Tesla to produce.

To nudge Model S sales into action, Tesla has done another price adjustment today. The Model S Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive – most affordable of the line-up – now starts at $71,990 for the Long Range Plus version. That’s rated at

But Gabby Millgate, who played the character of Joanie Heslop, has now revealed that the iconic moment was almost cut from the movie.

TEA warns to cut off funding if Austin ISD doesn’t change instruction model for secondary students

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Independent School District superintendent says the learning model being used in many middle and high schools will likely change in November to allow for more personal instruction between teachers and students.

Dr. Stephanie Elizalde told the Board of Trustees at Monday night’s information session that the Texas Education Agency contacted district leaders to inform them virtual instruction, which is being delivered to many in-person students, would not be funded past November.

“How can you say it’s in-person instruction when the students are not getting any time with their teachers,” Elizalde recalled the TEA’s line of questioning to the district.

Elizalde said the district is considering multiple changes to correct this, including having either students rotate between classes or teachers rotating between classes. The district may implement “one-way hallways” to minimize student-to-student spread of COVID-19.

“None of this is ‘zero risk.’ There is no ‘zero risk’

Online shopping is surging in the pandemic.

The other night, I was feeling a little more tired and burned out than usual. I smelled the candle on my desk to see if I could pick up its scent. What if I was coming down with Covid-19? I got a whiff of pumpkin, but my anxiety about my malaise didn’t lessen; I took to Amazon and ordered a bunch of vitamins.

Klara Spilkova misses KPMG Women’s PGA cut after slow-play penalty

Klara Spilkova won’t be around for the weekend of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, missing the cut by 1 shot after a rare 2-stroke penalty was assessed for slow play. While players are put on the clock often in professional golf — with the threat of a penalty if they don’t pick up the pace — it’s not often they actually get docked strokes.

But it happened to Spilkova as she walked off the 15th hole Friday at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. That helped turn her round into a 3-over 73 for a two-day score of 7 over, putting her 11 shots behind leader Sei Young Kim and 1 shot outside the cut. The top 75 players advanced to the weekend in the LPGA’s third major of the year.

Players on the LPGA have been outspoken about slow play, most notable Stacy Lewis, who went on Twitter

Jaguar Land Rover Reveals Headphone-Style Noise Cancelling Tech To Cut Driver Fatigue

Driver fatigue brought on by the monotonous drone of road roar and wind noise could soon be a thing of the past, as Jaguar Land Rover reveals new noise-cancelling technology.

Similar to how headphones with ANC (active noise cancelling) work, the new system uses sensors on each wheel to monitor vibrations. These are then used to produce a sound wave through the car’s audio system that cancels out the unwanted noise, particularly low-frequency sounds up to 300Hz.

The system debuts on the new Jaguar F-Pace, new Jaguar XE, and Range Rover Velar, but is likely to soon roll-out across the rest of the JLR range.

JLR explains how the system “calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the

(Bloomberg) — Tesla Inc. is set to launch its first Model 3 sedan equipped with cheaper batteries in China as soon as Thursday, allowing it to cut the cost of vehicles and boost sales in the world’s largest electric-vehicle market, people familiar with the matter said.

The mass-market Model 3s with the new batteries from a Chinese supplier will sell for 249,900 yuan ($36,800) after government subsidies, bringing the starting price of Tesla’s basic model down by almost 10%, one of the people said. The cheapest current models are 271,550 yuan after subsidies.
