Radio Flyer’s My First Model Y is a mini Tesla for kids four years old and younger.

A few years ago Radio Flyer teamed up with Tesla to create a kids’ version of the Tesla Model S. That drivable mini electric sedan packs a lithium-ion battery and costs $500. Now, the companies are releasing a Tesla Model Y for kids. This mini whip is a ride-on, so kids will have to scoot it themselves (there’s no electrification here), but it costs just $100. The company says kids as young as one and a half can ride the Tesla toy, dubbed “My First Model Y.” Most will outgrow it by the time they’re about four years old, when they might graduate to the Tesla Model S For Kids. My First Model Y comes with an ergonomic seat, functioning horn and “authentic” Model Y details.

The Eremocene or the Age of Loneliness. Thats what the biologist EO Wilson calls the global disaster were headed for, with half of all species extinct by the end of the century as a result of habitat destruction, pollution, over-fishing and other human activities. I know were all sick of bad news right now, but this really is a tragedy of almost unimaginable proportions. The collapse of natural ecosystems will put our food and water supplies in jeopardy. The loss of so many species means well miss out on innumerable new medicines drawn from the natural world. Losing all this will make us poorer in the long run. But the deepest consequence has nothing to do with money. Its far more personal, and has to do with the severing of our connection to the natural world, and a disorienting sense o...

In an opinion piece, Winston Morgan, Ph.D., discusses why societal change to counter racism requires more than a shift in sentiment.

Winston Morgan, Ph.D., is a reader in toxicology and clinical biochemistry at the University of East London, in the United Kingdom. In this opinion piece, he discusses the outcomes of a recent review into why COVID-19 disproportionately affects people from marginalized racial and ethnic groups. He also highlights why societal changes need more than sentiment to become reality. A few years ago, I wrote about the fact that after more than 100 years, there had not been a Black Nobel laureate in science. I argued then about the structural problems that Black scientists and other Black professionals face in their educational and occupational journeys and emphasized why this was not just a problem for the individuals, but a greater problem for society. Fast-forward to 2020 and the impact of...

Fortnite has released its latest season, but millions of its players wont be able to enjoy it: The game has been pulled from Apples App Store, leaving iOS and macOS users unable to update to the highly anticipated Season 4.

Epic says that Apples requirement that all mobile apps come through its App Store (and the 30 percent commission Apple charges for app sales and in-app purchases) is a monopoly, and that Epic as well as its fellow developers and their customers sho...
