What Do Experts Say About Tesla’s Price Cut?

The Wall Street Journal said in a report that the discount made that possible for buyers of Tesla’s US-built Model Y to take advantage of a tax credit in the US by bringing the price of the car below a $55,000 cap.

But Analyst Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities has a different opinion on Tesla. He said that that was no secret that demand for Tesla was starting to see some cracks in the global slowdown for 2023.

Dan Ives called the price cut the “right move” and “a clear shot across the bow at European automakers and US stalwarts (GM and Ford) that Tesla was not going to play nice in the sandbox.

Google Salutes Russian Military Surgeon Dr. Vera Gedroits With A Doodle

Google is celebrating the 151st birthday of Russian surgeon Dr. Vera Gedroits. Today’s Google Doodle is different as it carries a thanking note for Vera Gedroits for pushing the world of medicine forward against all odds.

Who was Dr. Vera Gedroits?

Vera Gedroits was born into a prominent family of Lithuanian royal descent in Kiev in 1870. Kiev was then part of the Russian Empire. In her late teens, she went to Switzerland to study medicine and returned to Russia to start her medical career. She first joined a factory hospital as a surgeon.

What was the biggest achievement of Vera Gedroits?

Vera Gedroits became a volunteer during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 and served the Russian army as a surgeon. She performed complex abdominal surgeries with ultimate precision in a converted railway car. It was an achievement because she worked with limited resources and under the threat of enemy attack. Later the Russian government adopted that procedure as the new standard. She also worked as a surgeon for Russian royals. On returning home, she became a professor of surgery at the University of Kiev in 1929.

Professor Vera Gedroits

As a professor, Vera Gedroits worked on nutrition and surgical treatments. Her research was published in leading medical journals of that time. She was also an author and poet. Her memoir titled “Life” published in 1931 has excerpts from her battlefield experience on the frontlines in 1904. She also authored a collection of poems.

Funeral ceremony of Prince Philip

Millions of people will watch the final farewell to Prince Philip behind the stately walls of the Windsor Castle, west of London, on their televisions as the pandemic restrictions won’t allow a large gathering on the ground.

His coffin will be borne on a bespoke Land Rover hearse repainted in military green. The Land Rover was designed by Prince Philip. The whole country will observe a minute’s silence on the stroke of 3:00 pm (1400 GMT) before the funeral begins.

Who was Prince Philip?

Prince Philip was The Duke of Edinburgh but he was lovingly called “the grandfather of the nation”. He was 99 years old and was suffering from a heart ailment and infection. He spent last month in a hospital stay.

He was “strength and stay” for Queen Elizabeth II as she once called him. They were together since 1952. It was a 73-year long relationship that came to an end on April 9. His funeral ceremony will be a more modest affair but the efforts are on to make it a royal send-off like no other.
