    Goodbye, X A-12. Hello, X A-Xii. Grimes and Elon Musk have changed their baby boys name, the Miss Anthropocene singer said, after it failed to comply with California law. The 32-year-old new mom shared the news on Instagram after a follower asked her what the babys new name was. Its unclear whether the couple has finally come to an agreement about how to pronounce their sons name. X A-Xii, she answered in the comments. She later added, Roman numerals. Looks better tbh, when a separate fan noted she removed the numbers to conform [sic] to California law....

    Amid the pandemic, the SpaceX launch should inspire us to be risk-takers, trying new things and starting new ventures. We can only achieve great things if we don't let fear dictate how we live our lives. Two American astronauts, Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, will strap themselves in the Dragon capsule, which sits on top of the Falcon 9 rocket — both built by Elon Musk’s company SpaceX — and depart for the International Space Station on May 27.This extraordinary event embodies much historic significance. The Falcon 9 rocket will be launched from the same launch pad at the Kennedy...

    Hertz, which started with a fleet of a dozen Ford Model Ts a century ago and became one of the worlds largest car rental companies, filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday after falling victim to its mountain of debt. The coronavirus pandemic has devastated Hertz by grounding business travelers and tourists, making it impossible for the company to continue paying its lenders. A sharp drop in used car prices has also decreased the value of its fleet. They were doing quite well, but when you turn off the revenues and you own all these cars and all of a sudden...
