The Tesla Model 3 follows its predecessors and gets a NHTSA perfect safety rating

The Tesla Model 3 follows its predecessors and gets a NHTSA perfect safety ratingThe NHTSA (US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) tested the safety of the Tesla Model 3 sedan and, just like the Model S and Model X, the car has received perfect 5-star ratings in every category. Tesla describes safety as, "the most important part of the overall Model 3 design" and with nothing rated below 5-stars in all categories from the NHTSA, which published the results this week, the Model 3 gets an overall safety rating of 5-stars with zero recalls. The side crash rating was broken down into two main categories: the side barrier and side pole ratings.



Japan space probe drops hopping rovers towards asteroid

Japan space probe drops hopping rovers towards asteroidA Japanese space probe Friday released a pair of exploring rovers towards an egg-shaped asteroid to collect mineral samples that may shed light on the origin of the solar system. The "Hayabusa2" probe jettisoned the round, cookie tin-shaped robots toward the Ryugu astroid, according to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). If the mission is successful, the rovers will conduct the world's first moving, robotic observation of an asteroid surface.



Republican Congressman's six siblings launch TV advert attacking him

Republican Congressman's six siblings launch TV advert attacking himSix siblings of a Republican Congressman standing for re-election have taken the extraordinary step of releasing an advert urging people not to vote for him. Paul Gosar,  from the most conservative wing of the Republican Party,  is standing in Arizona for re-election to the House of Representatives in November. The Congressman has been known to court controversy, and boycotted Pope Francis' speech to Congress in 2015 because of his warnings about climate change. Now six of his siblings have put their support behind his Democratic opponent David Brill in a new television advert disparaging their brother. To maximise its impact, the campaign video does not reveal the six speakers' relationship to Mr Gosar until the very end. The speakers are introduced by first name only - with Grace, a rural physician, stating "Paul Gosar the Congressman isn't doing anything to support rural America". Jennifer, a medical interpreter, chimes in: "if he actually cared about people in rural Arizona, I bet he'd be fighting for social security, for better access to healthcare". "He is not listening to you - and he does not have your best interests at heart," says Tim, before adding: "My name is Tim Gosar". It is not the first time Mr Gosar's siblings have publicly criticised their brother. Last August the Congressman suggested a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was planned by left-wing activists to undermine President Donald Trump. He later claimed that George Soros, a high profile Democratic Party donor, was a Nazi collaborator. Mr Soros, whose family is Jewish, survived Nazi-occupied Hungary and later emigrated to the US. These six — yes, six — siblings of a Republican congressman just endorsed his opponent via @washingtonpost: https://t.co/QcTYgOqVFipic.twitter.com/gynLW43Glg— Brill for Congress (@Brill4Congress) September 22, 2018 Following Mr Gosar's statements seven of his siblings signed an open letter to a local Arizona newspaper, The Kingman Daily Miner, saying: "It is extremely upsetting to have to call you out on this, Paul, but you've forced our hand with your deceit and anti-Semitic dog whistle." The Republican has also defended far-right British activist Tommy Robinson and attacked "disgusting and depraved" Muslim immigrants during a speech in London in July. In 2015, he criticised the Pope for supporting efforts to counter climate change - a phenomenon which Mr Gosar believes is based on "questionable science" used "to guilt people into leftist policies". "It would be difficult to see my brother as anything but a racist," Mr Gosar's sister Grace tells voters in another upcoming advert, according to The Phoenix New Times. Mr Gosar, who is one of ten children, has not yet responded to this most recent public attack by his siblings. But in the deeply red state, pollsters predict Mr Gosar is still likely to retain his seat - the Congressman won his seat with more than 70 per cent of the vote in 2016.



'Hotep' — community action in East New York

'Hotep' — community action in East New YorkEast New York, a residential neighborhood in the eastern section of Brooklyn, has battled poverty since the 1950s. In April 2018, I began documenting grassroots community action in response to the social problems associated with poverty — from street crime and drug addiction to gun violence. In this series, which is part of a long-term urban project I started in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in 2012, I have been following the efforts of a local organization called ManUp Inc. Members use the Egyptian word “hotep,” which means “to be at peace,” to greet people in their community.
