It’s closed to the public and limited to the drivers and a small group of select volunteers. The building itself, home to Tesla’s storied last laboratory, is still off limits because of the toxic conditions inside that must be remediated in order for the science center to proceed.The cost of the project has been estimated at $30 million. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, recently donated $1 million to the science center and pledged to set up one of the company’s growing network of superchargers at Wardenclyffe for its electric cars.Starting at 1 p.m., the public is invited to attend the afternoon event, which will feature presentations by Jane Alcorn, TSC president, who will report on the latest developments for the Tesla Center, and Neil Baggett, TSC secretary, who will talk about Tesla and how his pioneering work continues to benefit people today.Jim Thompson, organizer of this Tesla Meets Tesla event, will explain why owners of the electric car, which uses AC motors based on Tesla’s 1888 invention, made the trip and their plans to help raise funds for TSC.Although the 187-foot Wardenclyffe tower was torn down a century ago, the octagonal base still stands, from which Tesla dreamed of providing electricity wirelessly to the world for free.In case of rain, the event will take place Sunday, Oct. 26. The proceedings will be streamed at http://www.remembertesla.com and there will be an official Twitter feed too, @teslascience, for tweets of the day’s activities, images and announcements.

Powered by Firework Pakistan head coach and former batsman Misbah-ul-Haq, has decided to ban biryani and other oil-based red meat dishes for his team to help his players get back into shape. The decision was imposed after the team was declared as one of the most ‘unfit’ sides in the world and the social media didn’t hold back to troll on this issue including their plus sized captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.Advertisement During the 2019 World Cup many people raised questions regarding the Pakistani team’s diet and fitness including their former pacer Shoaib Akhtar, who even called skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed as a ‘fat and unfit’ player after the loss against West Indies in the tournament opener. To make the matter even worse, there were some rumours that the team was seen eating junk food ahead of their match against arch-rivals India. Following their loss in that match, one crying fan complained that the Pakistani cricket board wasn’t aware of the fitness issues in the team. Therefore, Misbah’s decision to ban fat from the diet chart can prove to be a crucial step to reorganize the team under his guidance.Advertisement Our new coach “Misbah ul haq” has banned “Biryani” for cricket team .

But for the netizens, this incident was another opportunity to take a dig at the players on social media. Advertisementlast_img read more
