Elon Musk’s Tesla-themed diner coming to LA



Elon Musk’s Tesla has received the green light to proceed with its ambitious plan to construct an all-night diner and drive-in movie theater in the heart of Hollywood.

The proposed 1950s-style drive-in complex will not only serve as a Tesla Supercharger station with 32 stalls but will also feature classic movie screens showcasing iconic film clips and a restaurant boasting rooftop seating.

Tesla secured permit approval from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety earlier this month, according to reports from industry blog Teslarati, which obtained copies of the documents.

The location of this Tesla-themed diner will be on W. Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, contrary to Musk’s initial plan of placing it in Santa Monica.

New complex

The recent round of approvals primarily centered on the initial grading inspection for Tesla’s forthcoming complex, as noted by the same source. Tesla had previously gained approval for building walls and movie screens back in July.

The public got a glimpse of Tesla’s creative vision when the company shared an official rendering during its 2023 investor day in March. The presentation slide was aptly titled, “Can’t forget to do cool s—t.”

Additionally, architect Ed Howard offered his own unaffiliated concept art, showcasing his vision for a Tesla diner and drive-in.

Musk has been teasing the idea of a Tesla drive-in for quite some time via his social media channels.

In April 2021, he tweeted, “Major new Supercharger station coming to Santa Monica soon! Hoping to have 50’s diner & 100 best movie clips playing too. Thanks Santa Monica city!”

Furthermore, in 2018, Musk mentioned, “Gonna put an old school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant at one of the new Tesla Supercharger locations in LA.”

Tesla boasts a network of over 17,000 Supercharger stations across the United States, with locations in all 50 states.

New projects

The Tesla-themed diner and drive-in movie theater is just one of the many unique projects the company has undertaken, often extending beyond its primary mission of producing electric vehicles.

For instance, Tesla offers its own branded “Tesla Tequila” on its website, described as having a “dry fruit and light vanilla nose with a balanced cinnamon pepper finish.”

Recently, the company began selling a Cybertruck-themed cardboard cat bed in China.

Meanwhile, Tesla enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the release of the long-awaited Cybertruck, set to debut this fall after facing several delays.

COP28: Global effort to phase out fossil fuels



World leaders at COP28 have intensified their commitment to combat climate change by embarking on a bold initiative to phase out fossil fuels.

The United Nations climate talks, held in a virtual format due to ongoing pandemic concerns, saw representatives from nearly 200 countries coming together to address the urgent need for action on the climate crisis.

The decision to focus on ending fossil fuel use marks a significant departure from previous climate negotiations.

Countries have traditionally grappled with setting emissions reduction targets, but this year’s conference places a strong emphasis on the need to transition away from the reliance on coal, oil, and natural gas. Experts argue that this shift is critical to limiting global temperature rise and avoiding the most catastrophic effects of climate change.

Key highlights of the COP28 agreement include setting ambitious deadlines for phasing out fossil fuel subsidies, promoting renewable energy sources, and encouraging the development of green technologies.

The conference also established a fund to support developing nations in their transition away from fossil fuels, recognizing that these countries often face the greatest challenges in achieving sustainability.

The raids have sent shockwaves through the LGBTQ+ community and have raised concerns about the ongoing crackdown on LGBTQ+ rights in Russia.

Eyewitnesses and clubgoers describe a heavy police presence during the raids, with officers reportedly detaining patrons and staff members.

The reasons behind these raids remain unclear, but they have ignited a fierce debate on social media and within human rights organizations.

International LGBTQ+ rights advocates are calling on the Russian government to address these actions and protect the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ individuals in the country.

The raids have also drawn attention to Russia’s controversial “gay propaganda” law, which has been criticized for its potential to fuel discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ people.

UK delays Jeff Zucker’s Telegraph deal for inquiry



The UK government has decided to put a hold on the proposed acquisition of The Telegraph newspaper by media mogul Jeff Zucker’s conglomerate.

According to a recent report, this decision has been made in order to conduct further investigations into potential regulatory concerns surrounding the deal.

The move comes amidst growing concerns over media consolidation and its impact on media diversity and competition.

The government aims to ensure that the acquisition would not result in a concentration of media power that could potentially stifle independent journalism and diverse voices in the industry.

This decision has sparked debates about the balance between media ownership and the preservation of media plurality in the UK. Supporters of the deal argue that it could lead to much-needed investments in The Telegraph, while critics worry about the potential for Zucker’s conglomerate to wield too much influence over the media landscape.
