By MICHAEL LIEDTKE (AP Technology Writer)SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Elon Musk was depicted Wednesday as either a liar who callously jeopardized the savings of “regular people” or a well-intentioned visionary as attorneys delivered opening statements at a trial focused on a Tesla buyout that never happened. The case is focused on two August 2018 tweets that the billionaire posted on Twitter, which he now owns. Nicholas Porritt, a lawyer representing Glen Littleton and other Tesla shareholders in the class-action case, promptly vilified Musk as he addressed jurors. After saying “funding secured” for the buyout, Musk followed up with another tweet that suggested a deal was imminent. “That was such a defining statement.”Musk’s 2018 tweets attracted the attention of securities regulators, who concluded that they were improper and that he was lying.
There’s a brand-new rock musical hitting the stage at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre in Philadelphia with an interesting story and a featuring West Chester native Grace Slear in the ensamble cast. ‘The Tattooed Lady’ is a new musical highlighting one of sideshow’s biggest stars, the fictional Ida Gibson, in a moving, fantastical tale that reveals the generational chasms and connections between Ida and her granddaughter Joy. “‘The Tattooed Lady’ is a full course meal,” said Vernon. The night aims to bring together younger theatre and arts patrons, social media influencers and members of the tri-state tattoo community. Additionally, Oreto will join PTC’s new Artistic Directors Taibi Magar and Tyler Dobrowsky for talk-backs Nov. 6th and Nov. 13th.3 months ago Delco Times
Combined, that spray of excellence and mystery, failure and fulfillment conspired to land Aaron Nola to where he was at 8:03 Wednesday night. He was on the mound at Citizens Bank Park, ready to start Game 4 of the World Series. “And it’s a World Series, but it’s just another game when we step out on that field.”No, it was not. But he was not what the Phillies needed on a night when the World Series had a chance to fall out of their control. But they will have to do that without Aaron Nola having been special at all.3 months ago Delco Times
That obliterates the old record of 61 sacks set in 1989 and puts the Birds within range of the all-time NFL record of 72 set by the 1984 Bears. Graham’s first sack established the record and was his 10th of the season, giving the Eagles four pass rushers with double digit sacks, an NFL first. All of it went for naught, though, because at the end of the sunny day the Eagles were no closer to clinching the top seed in the NFC. “I think the biggest record today is we’re 13-3 and we’ve lost two games in a row,” Cox said. Reddick has 16 sacks, Graham and Javon Hargrave 11 sacks each.1 month ago Delco Times

Hurts threw three interceptions, sustained an ankle injury when Jack Driscoll stepped on him and had a touchdown by Boston Scott nullified by a hold on Nate Herbig, who replaced Driscoll at right guard. Throw in a sideline tantrum by DeVonta Smith, who threw his helmet after Hurts threw to Jalen Reagor instead of him on fourth down, and you have the blueprint for a 13-7 setback. “They’ve always been a really physical football team,” Hurts said. “I think Brian, Coach Daboll, he’s a very energetic coach, a very passionate coach,” Hurts said. But you really don’t want to chase progress.1 month ago Delco Times
It can’t be overstated how much the Giants cherish this return to the postseason. Williams acknowledged Thursday that there will likely be a moment Sunday in Minnesota when he looks around before the wild card game between the teams and absorbs the gravity of it all. I’m going to embrace it while it’s there, while I’m having that feeling. Of the six underdogs coming into the weekend, the Giants had arguably the best chance to win. For example, the Giants typically were a short-pass attack but exploited the Vikings’ 31st-ranked passing defense with three completions of at least 29 yards.20 days ago Delco Times
