Video shows Russian solider giving middle finger to Ukrainian drone before being blown up

Shocking, new footage shows a Russian soldier flipping off a Ukrainian drone before being blown up by enemy munitions.

In a 90-second clip posted Sunday, a drone zooms in on a group of Russian troops standing around a vehicle. About 17 seconds into the footage, one of the six Russian soldiers turns his head up to the sky, and directs a one-finger salute to the drone.

As the camera pans out, the drone releases a grenade onto the BTR-82A, a 8×8 wheeled armored personnel carrier, causing it to burst into flames.

It’s unclear when and where exactly the footage was taken, though the Ukraine Weapons Tracker Twitter account said it took place in eastern Ukraine, which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Saturday is “indescribably difficult” to protect.

The footage was shared a day after Russia reached a grim milestone of losing 30,000 soldiers in its war with Ukraine the country launched in late February.

Iran shows off underground drone base, but not its location, state media report | Reuters

May 28 (Reuters) – The Iranian army has given some details – but not the exact location – of an underground base for its military drones, state media reported on Saturday, amid simmering tensions in the Gulf.

State TV said 100 drones were being kept in the heart of the Zagros mountains, including Ababil-5, which it said were fitted with Qaem-9 missiles, an Iranian-made version of air-to-surface U.S. Hellfire.

“No doubt the drones of Islamic Republic of Iran’s armed forces are the region’s most powerful,” army commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said. “Our capability to upgrade drones is unstoppable,” he added.

The Iranian state TV correspondent said he had made the 45-minute helicopter flight on Thursday from Kermanshah in western Iran to a secret underground drone site. He was allowed to take blindfolds off only upon arrival at the base, he said.

Apple Store Showdown: Inside the Battle for Union Representation – The New York Times

Weary from the pandemic and pressured by inflation, retail employees of the tech giant are holding votes on whether to unionize.

ATLANTA — Sydney Rhodes’s frustration was rising. Seated at a hotel conference table across the street from the Apple store where she worked in Atlanta, she listened as her boss suggested to a dozen colleagues that they should be grateful to be paid more than other retail employees.

It was among a series of arguments he made this month at an off-site meeting ahead of the store’s vote on whether to join the Communications Workers of America union. Ms. Rhodes, a 26-year-old union organizer, considered the roughly $4 more per hour that Apple paid relative to other stores insufficient.

Before a recent promotion, she supported herself by bouncing from part-time work helping customers with iPhones to a second job delivering Amazon packages to a third shift loading boxes at FedEx. She had championed the union because she thought it could [...]  read more

On Elon Musk's Tesla-India update, Ola CEO says, 'Thanks but no thanks' – Hindustan Times

Elon Musk on Twitter has given an update about Tesla and Starlink operations in India.

Published on May 29, 2022 09:10 AM IST Share Via Copy Link BySwati Bhasin Elon Musk’s response to a Twitter user on an update about Tesla’s India operations have drawn the ire of Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal. Musk, the world’s richest person, on Friday told a Twitter user: “Tesla will not put a manufacturing plant in any location where we are not allowed first to sell & service cars.” His response came when he was asked: “What about Tesla ? Is Tesla manufacturing a plant in India in future?” Musk was suggesting that he’d want market access in the country to bring the clean energy firm’s operations in India.

To this, the Ola CEO responded: “Thanks but no thanks”.

Tesla has been encouraged to manufacture locally in India and avoid selling cars made in China’s financial hub of Shanghai. “It is a very easy alternative, if Elon Musk is ready to manufacture a Tesla in India, there is no problem. We have got all competencies, the vendors are available. We have got all types of technology and because of that, he can reduce the cost,” union minister Nitin Gadkari had recently said.

“He is welcome in India. We don’t have any problem, but, suppose, he wants to manufacture in China and sell in India, it cannot be a good proposition for India. Our request to him is, come to India and manufacture here,” he had added.

In another tweet, Musk had also said that he was waiting for government approval for bringing Starlink to India, which uses satellites to provide internet [...]  read more

Elon Musk welcomes global recession: 'it's been raining money on fools for too long' – The Guardian

Elon Musk welcomes global recession: ‘it’s been raining money on fools for too long’

The billionaire has received loans and tax breaks to help keep Tesla afloat, now he says other companies should go bankrupt for the good of the economy

With the invasion of Ukraine and lockdowns in China putting added pressure on a supply chain that has yet to recover from the ongoing pandemic, many are predicting a global recession. Elon Musk says bring it on.

“This is actually a good thing,” Musk said in response to a question from a Twitter user. “It has been raining money on fools for too long. Some bankruptcies need to happen.

“Also,” he continued, “all the Covid stay-at-home stuff has tricked people into thinking that you don’t actually need to work hard. Rude awakening inbound!”

It’s tough talk from a man said to be worth north of $218bn, more than anyone in the world. And it conveniently overlooks the considerable handouts Musk himself took in the process of growing his net worth after plunking down $6.5m for a majority stake in Tesla in 2004. How did Musk weather the economic storms and rude awakenings thereafter?

In 2008, the company rolled out its only product – a Lotus Elise knockoff called [...]  read more
