Any true Southern belle knows the unwritten rules of the South Sally Lynch – Reporter Real southern traditions are passed down from generation to generation. Sally Lynch began learning about customs at a young age. Photograph submitted by Sally Lynch There are rules in the South. I am talking about the rules any good Southern belle knows. These are the rules that separate those who move to the South from those who come from the South. These rules, like many in life, are not written. A Southern girl learns them by watching and listening to her doting mother, aunt or grandmother. The real Southern traditions are passed down from generation to generation. For those of you hoping to pick up a few tips about how to be a Southern belle, remember this:
Sep 10, In the late spring of , my wealthy entrepreneurial husband, Elon Musk, the father of my five young sons, filed for divorce. Six weeks later, he texted me to say he was engaged to a gorgeous British actress in her early 20s who had moved to Los Angeles to be with him. Her name is Talulah Riley, and she played one of the sisters in ‘s Pride and Prejudice.
In , Elon Musk said he would “rather stick a fork in my hand than write about my personal life.” But the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX is a fascinating figure, and along the way, he’s opened up here and there about his childhood, his parents, and his relationships.. In an an in-depth November Rolling Stone interview, he got uncharacteristically candid.
He intends to make space transportation affordable for the common man and then make Mars habitable and self-sufficient for the first set of human beings that will live there in the near future. The self taught computer programmer, who is also an engineer, innovator, and investor that has played a key role in the development of products that help companies on a daily basis, such as PayPal, is also the CEO of Tesla Inc. At around the age of 10, he developed an interest in computers and computing.
He was later able to teach himself how to programme, and then wrote the code for a video game which can be seen online up to this day. He chose to remain in South Africa with his father where he attended high school. He was at this time described as an avid reader, a geek, which brought along with it severe bullying. Following a case whereby he was hospitalized after being beaten in school, he transferred and went on to graduate from Pretoria Boys High School.
Two years later, he transferred to the University of Pennsylvania to study business and physics. After leaving Pennsylvania, Musk enrolled for a Ph. Noted for being one who does the unthinkable, Musk dropped out after just two days, to pursue some entrepreneurial ambitions that coincided with the internet boom of that decade. He soon after launched his first company called Zip2 Corporation, an online city guide software for newspapers, with help from some investors.
With enough capital at hand, Musk immediately co-founded another company called X.
He suggested Musk was an elitist for his disdain of transit and suggested that innovations like driverless cars and the Hyperloop would help only the rich. Musk picked the wrong transportation expert to criticize. After helping cities like Houston dramatically increase ridership, Walker has become something of a celebrity among transit planners.

Beyond the general application by Katherine Wise Each year, almost 10 thousand students apply to Elon University, competing for one of the 14 hundred spots in the incoming class. For most incoming students, the application is complete after the essay. But the last step for some is just the beginning for others. Some programs at Elon require more than the regular admissions application. A number of visual arts majors, athletes and performing arts majors know that the process does not end when they send off the admissions application.

Once developed, they will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend. These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways. We do not have long to act.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Elon Musk has apparently made good on a joke that SpaceX will mark its first unmanned flight to Mars by delivering a Tesla car to the red planet. The private space company revealed some pictures of the cherry red electric sports car inside the Falcon Heavy. Scheduled to launch from the same pad at Cape Canaveral as the Saturn V Apollo 11 moon mission next month, the Falcon Heavy is the equivalent of three Falcon 9 rockets. The new Tesla Roadster has yet to be released to the public, but Musk’s other company has clearly provided one for the purposes of visiting Mars.
But it appears the billionaire is planning to follow through on the idea. So we decided to send something unusual. Twitter user Emiliano C. It is composed of three Falcon 9s strapped together, with a total of 27 engines generating more than 5 million pounds of thrust – equal to approximately eighteen aircraft. It is capable of carrying more than 63, kg into lower Earth orbit and 16, kg all the way to Mars.
By comparison, the Falcon 9 can carry 22, kg into lower Earth orbit.
The talented CEO has gotten candid about the relationships in his past in interviews before. They met when Musk approached her and asked her out for ice cream — and even though she agreed, she later blew him off. Musk and Wilson had a son together, Nevada, who died of sudden infant death syndrome, which put a rift in their relationship.
They later had twins and triplets. Interestingly enough, Justine Musk also said that she actually really liked Talulah Riley, as they communicated during the divorce proceedings. By , Riley and Musk were married, The Independent reports.

Published in the December issue , on sale any day now “There will probablybe a lot of people that die,” says Elon Musk. He is sitting at his desk, at the headquarters of his company — of one of his companies — SpaceX. He is eating a plate of food that his personal assistant gave him. It is late, and he is eating to stay on schedule. He is a man of scrupulously developed politesse, and he worries that eating his scheduled dinner while completing his scheduled interview might give offense.
It does not, because although he eats hungrily, he never succeeds in making his food look appetizing. On his white plate is a turkey leg, a sad bouquet of broccoli, a mound of black beans, and he eats them like an astronaut might eat his rations, with an air of hurried functionality, while talking about going to Mars. He is famous for it. He has been talking about going to Mars for eleven years, and his desire to go to Mars preceded his desire to mass-produce electric cars at the other company he runs, Tesla.
In , SpaceX succeeded in twice sending a rocket of its own manufacture into orbit and twice linking a capsule of its own manufacture to the International Space Station, and Elon Musk succeeded in convincing some of those who have regarded him as a con man dependent on government largesse that he may yet become what one of his admirers calls the “Steve Jobs of heavy industry,” if not the “Henry Ford of rockets.
It is impossible to sit behind the wheel of his Tesla Model S alongside one of the company’s representatives without hearing that Musk designed the car’s ingotlike rearview mirror himself and insisted that its dashboard have no buttons and an audio system with a volume control that “goes to

Whilst still a student he changed the way we paid for products over the internet with a revolutionary piece of tech PayPal and has since gone on to change a many other areas of our lives through his companies Tesla, Space X and Solar City. There may only be 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week and days in a year, but for Elon Musk that is plenty of time to get a few things done.
Here is what he achieved in One of which was with his new business council, a group of advisors made up of some of the brightest minds in the country. On the table for discussion was trade, taxes, and regulations. Elon Musk gets cracking on The Boring Company Musk decided that sitting in LA traffic was just too much and in February announced plans to set up a company that would create a series of underground tunnels that would connect the city.
SpaceX successfully launched and then retrieved its first recycled rocket, a historic feat aimed at driving down the costs of space exploration. After taking off, the Falcon 9 core landed back on the ocean platform with the help of a broadcasting satellite.

To get at these larger questions, I focus on the art and archaeology of the Roman provinces, especially the southern Levant, as well as on broad comparative interests that reach into other disciplines and traditions: I received my B. My Masters Thesis, “Synagogue on Delos: Identification and Context,” reassesses the much-debated identification of the building GD 80 on the island of Delos as a synagogue.
I argued that any definite identification of the building GD 80 is not currently possible. My dissertation, “Late Roman and Byzantine Galilee: A Provincial Case Study from the Perspective of the Imported and Common Pottery,” considered rural settlement processes and regional—international economic relationships in a specific part of the southern Levant. For this project, I chose seven excavated and published rural village sites in lower Eastern Galilee as representative case studies.
For each, I reassessed chronologically distinct material assemblages numismatics, architecture, ceramics in conjunction with historical data. Moreover, I formulated a typology and chronology of the Late Roman Galilean local or common pottery, incorporating quantitative and diachronic analysis of over individual sherds published and unpublished. I arrived at three key conclusions relating to Jewish life in Late Roman Galilee: The data-set that I developed for the dissertation is unique and a launching point for my future research.
I have excavated at Tel Kedesh Israel and currently a senior staff member and ceramic specialist at the Huqoq Excavation Project.
