Why it matters that Elon Musk acknowledges Aspergers | TICKER VIEWS

Elon Musk on SNL

It was the key moment of his SNL performance that we remember the most. Elon Musk, one of the world’s richest people, acknowledging he has Aspergers. And he’s proud of it.

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger’s, is a neurodevelopmental disorder, characterised by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication.

It often comes with restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour and interests.

“I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s [syndrome] to host. Or at least the first to admit it,” Musk told the audience during his opening monologue. 

NOT THE FIRST

Turns out he wasn’t actually right.

Viewers quickly argued Musk’s assumption, pointing out that comedian and former “SNL” cast member Dan Aykroyd was the first on the show with the diagnosis.

Aykroyd told the Daily Mail that his Asperger’s was manageable, although it “wasn’t diagnosed until the early Eighties”. 

Elon Musk’s announcement on Saturday about Aspergers followed days of controversy surrounding the show’s choice to make him a host, which featured a few cast members taking jabs at the one of the richest people on earth.

But cast members Michael Che and Pete Davidson voiced their support for Musk on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Che lauded the slate of upcoming hosts, saying Musk is “the richest man in the world, how could you not be excited for that?”

Davidson said he didn’t “know why people are freaking out.” – adding he might ask Musk for a free Tesla.

“They’re like, ‘Oh, I can’t believe that Elon Musk is hosting!’” Davidson said. “And I’m like, the guy that makes the Earth better kinda and makes cool things and sends people to Mars?’”

They were offered electricity prices that were below market value.

Electricity consumed by some of the world’s largest cryptocurrencies has dropped by nearly half.

Ethereum to finally undergo shift to new energy model

Published

on

Ethereum is about to undergo its long awaited makeover, which will see the company shift from its energy intensive model.

The crypto has been working to shift from its proof-of-work method to a proof-of-stake model, which requires far less power than mining.

Crypto currencies have been criticised for their mining processes to generate new coins. But this new method will be eco-friendly and lead to faster transactions.

The transition has been repeatedly pushed back because of major flaws.

But developers reportedly say the latest test run was very smooth.

The price of Ethereum has lost nearly half its value this year and is trading at just over $1,800 USD.

Investors will continue to keep an eye out on what will come out of this upgrade.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin investors can enjoy a sigh of relief as the cryptocurrency bounces back after months of turbulence.
