In 2016 it delivered this many of its existing two luxury models, just over 76,000, less than the 80-90,000 it promised. So it's still a small-scale operator. But judging by the share price investors have high hopes it could become the next Ford or General Motors. Tesla shares have soared around 50% since the beginning of December, hiving it a stock market value of $44 billion.

But the DLCC and other Democratic groups focusing on the states have sometimes struggled to win support from national donors. And, while Rathod says he plans to work with the Obama-Holder coalition and notes that Holder spoke at SiX’s December gathering of state legislators in Washington, he also says he sees a need for fresh leadership. “I know donors are getting bombarded with people and groups telling them that they are now going to work in the states,” he said. “From what I’ve seen, those people have never worked in the states or are the same crowd that oversaw the decimation of progressive power at the state level for the past decade.” Having Brock at the helm of SiX’s board could give the group a big financial boost, since Brock is known for having a golden fundraising touch among some of the left’s richest activists. Last month, he moved to launch his own Koch-brothersstyle donor network with a major conference in Aventura, Florida, where he highlighted some of his own armada of aggressive political outfits, which raised a combined $65 million during the 2016 cycle, as well as some independent groups, including SiX .

The Standing Rock Sioux asked protesters to leave the area in December as they challenged the pipeline plans in court, but some 300 demonstrators had remained. Ed Higgins, a 39-year-old military veteran from Lowell, Massachusetts, said he planned on getting arrested peacefully, but was unsure how many other fellow protesters would be taken into custody. "We will not know until it happens," he said. Law enforcement officials urged people to leave the camp ahead of the deadline, saying they could be at risk from spring floods, as well as to remove anything that could be damaged during cleanup efforts. The officials have agreed to a request by camp leaders that only Native American cleanup crews be used. One activist, HolyElk Lafferty, said she had asked that government-contracted crews not begin their work until after the camp is cleared. "It would raise the alarm and panic and not promote a peaceful process today," Lafferty said.

PETALING JAYA: Practice Note 17 (PN17) company R&A Telecommunication Group Bhd (R&A) has been given a further extension of up to April 30, 2017 to submit its regularisation plan. In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, the group said it is required to make a requisite announcement on or before March 15, 2017. R&A had previously terminated negotiations for the proposed buy of the entire equity interest in construction firm Synergy Goldtree Sdn Bhd, which was supposed to form part of its proposed regularisation plan. Following the termination, the group said it has entered into an agreement for the proposed acquisition of the entire stake Forward Resources and Construction Sdn Bhd (FRCSB) in December last year. R&A added it has also entered into a framework restructuring agreement, in which the vendors had deposited an aggregate sum of RM2.5 million with their solicitors to be utilised for the settlement of the scheme creditors of the company and its wholly-owned subsidiary under the debt restructuring scheme.

The number of migrants deaths in the Mediterranean has increased sharply this year, even as the overall number of migrants making the risky trip has fallen. The figures have been highlighted in a report by Amnesty International on human rights around the globe, which notes: “At the end of December, around 358,000 refugees and migrants had made the crossing into Europe. “There was a modest increase in numbers taking the central Mediterranean route (up to around 170,000), but a sharp decline in numbers arriving on the Greek islands (down from 854,000 to 173,000), owing almost entirely to the migration control deal between EU and Turkey agreed in March. “The International Organization for Migration estimated that a record 5,000 people died at sea compared to around 3,700 last year.” No reasons for the increased death rate have been advanced by Amnesty, who have chosen to focus instead on chastising European leaders for their lack of “solidarity” with the migrants.

Apple Apple has been building its giant new "spaceship" campus in the company's hometown of Cupertino, California, since December of 2013, and since then fans have paid obsessive attention to the structure. It gets buzzed by drones constantly, and the most popular YouTube videos of the building in progress have amassed well over half-a-million views apiece. The company announced today that the campus will be open to employees starting in April and that the building and environs now have a name: Apple Park . Apple says that moving the 12,000 employees who will work at the campus will take more than six months, and landscaping and construction on some buildings won't be done until the summer. The new campus mostly replaces the university-style Infinite Loop campus Apple has used since 1993, though Apple has said that it will also be keeping the older buildings. The new campus' cost has been estimated at around $5 billion . Read 2 remaining paragraphs | Comments

Despite the setbacks, Kane believes playing at Wembley wasn't the reason for a dire Champions League campaign, per Steinberg: "I don't think the stadium was to blame, we just had two bad games. There have been other stadiums where we have played badly against teams as well. Of course, people will try to use Wembley as an excuse, but we definitely won't be looking at it like that." In fairness to Kane, Tottenham did win the last Champions League game the club played at Wembley, beating CSKA Moscow in December. The north London side's star striker believes that win must be a source of confidence against Gent: "We won the last time we played there, so we have to use that. We have our stuff on the walls, like Tottenham sayings and Tottenham pictures. We try to make it as much of a home as possible, so we have no excuses." Confidence aside, it may take more than adding a few homely touches to Wembley before Spurs can truly find the benefit of using it to host games in Europe.
