New story in Business from Time: The North Korean Threat Is Good for the Doomsday Prepper Business

President Trump’s inflammatory warnings to North Korea appear to have unsettled the stock market as fears of nuclear war likely triggered a global sell-off this week. But far away from Wall Street, the looming threat of the apocalypse is good business.

Larry Hall, the project manager and owner of the Survival Condo Project, is one of the few who’s benefiting in the wake of tension between the U.S. and North Korea. The Project comprises of two underground silos equipped with nine-foot thick blast doors, diesel generators, a movie theater, indoor swimming pool and luxury condos in a complex somewhere around Salinas, Kansas. The exact location can’t be revealed due to “security reasons.”

“The North Korea situation got us a 40% spike in inquires,” Hall said. On a monthly basis, he estimates the condos get about 300 inquires total. Over the past 10 days, he received roughly 200, he noted. “Ever since I started building the bunkers I’ve noticed [...]  read more

Tesla Model 3 long-range design explained in EPA filing | Engadget Today
80.5 kWh battery ftw!

http://ift.tt/2viTPy0

Elon Musk once said that Tesla couldn’t fit a 100kWh battery into the Model 3, but he didn’t specify what kind of battery the car will have. Now, a bunch of EPA certification documents have finally revealed that the long-range version of the all-electric sedan is equipped with a 350-volt, 230-amp-hour battery pack. If you compute for the battery’s kilowatt-hour value using those numbers, you’ll get 80.5kWh of max capacity. That’s what gives the long-range Model 3 variant the power to travel 310 miles between charges, only 5 miles shorter than the 315-mile range of the Model S and X. Tesla upgraded those vehicles’ batteries to 100kWh in late 2016.

Jordan Pearson, writing for Motherboard: Satoshi Nakamoto is Bitcoin’s anonymous creator and absentee head of state. In the years since she (or he, or they) disappeared into the ether and left the technology in the hands of a few high-profile developers, Nakamoto’s words have become nigh-gospel for some in the Bitcoin world. On Friday, a user going by “CipherionX” on the Bitcointalk forum published five emails allegedly between Satoshi Nakamoto and former Bitcoin developer Mike Hearn. In an email to Motherboard, Hearn confirmed that he shared the emails with the user. While Hearn himself, who was one of the earliest Bitcoin developers, has previously quoted most of the juicy bits from his correspondence with Nakamoto, it appears to be the first time much of the material has been shared in full. None of the emails [...]  read more
