The geek – What drives Elon Musk



An industrialist who set out to change the world, Elon Musk dreams so huge, even he thought he might fail

Elon Musk is known for his fast cars and rockets to the future.

But his story began far from the dreamers of Silicon Valley.

Elon was born in South Africa in 1971 and showed an early interest in computers and technology. In fact, he taught himself how to code and created his first computer game at the age of 12.

After studying economics and physics at the University of Pretoria, Musk moved to the United States to attend the University of Pennsylvania. He later dropped out of a PhD program at Stanford University to pursue his entrepreneurial interests.

Elon’s obsession with the future knows no earthly bounds. His big audacious hairy goal is to transform humanity into a planetary species.

Under his leadership, SpaceX has developed the Falcon 1, Falcon 9, and Falcon Heavy rockets, and has become the first privately-funded company to send a spacecraft to the International Space Station.

Today, Musk is widely regarded as a visionary and a pioneering entrepreneur.

But his power isn’t in his dream, it’s in his ability to convince investors, shareholders and thousands of his employees to dream as big as him.

For Musk, Tesla is about more than cars of the future—it’s about developing a pathway to Mars.

His move to America has proven to be a key turning point in his life and has allowed him to pursue his vision of creating a better future through technology and become a great business leader.

Disney trumps DeSantis with legal loophole



Disney has outplayed Ron DeSantis by leaning on a decades-old royal clause

In February, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis moved to take over Disney World’s governing body.

It was all in retaliation to the company’s public stance against the state’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

But now, new reports suggest this whole plan may have backfired.

Members of the new governor-appointed board argue the previous members stripped the board of its power before they left.

It was all part of an agreement, which was approved a day before DeSantis assumed more control of the land around Disney’s theme park.

Disney is leaning on a property law which essentially makes the company the government of the area.

New board member Ron Peri says the board has lost the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintain the roads and basic infrastructure.

For just under six decades, Disney has operated its expansive theme park and resort in Florida under a specially designated district.

A board oversaw the area and had free reign of development processes.

Disney also had the authority to appoint district board members.

But this special status came under threat when Disney clashed with DeSantis and his “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Florida lawmakers the passed a bill in February to end Disney’s self-governing status and give the governor the authority to appoint new board members to the district.

DeSantis appointed five supervisors, including a parents’ rights activist and three Republican donors.

But the new supervisors say previous board members entered an agreement before they left their positions – effectively stripping them of any powers. #trending #featured
