Elon Musk May Be Ordered To Testify Again In US Regulator’s Twitter Takeover Probe

A federal judge on Thursday indicated a willingness to compel Elon Musk to testify again in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's investigation into his $44 billion takeover of Twitter. Lawyers for the billionaire appeared in a San Francisco courtroom on Thursday to urge U.S. District Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley to decide against the SEC, which is seeking to force Musk to testify as part of its probe into his 2022 purchase of social media giant Twitter. Another judge previously ruled in favor of the agency. The SEC sued Musk in October to compel the Tesla and SpaceX CEO to testify after he refused to attend a September interview for the investigation, saying the SEC was trying to "harass" him with a number of subpoenas. The judge did not issue a decision on Thursday. "I don't thi...

Elon Musk’s Neuralink Says Issue In Brain Implant Fixed

Neuralink, the brain implant company owned by Elon Musk, said that it had fixed an issue that saw its first patient's ability to move a computer cursor greatly reduced. Musk's neurotechnology company in January installed a brain implant in Noland Arbaugh, the company's first human test subject, which the billionaire head of Tesla and X touted as a success.

Shortly after the implant operation, he told of playing chess and the videogame "Civilization," as well as taking Japanese and French lessons by controlling a computer screen cursor with his brain. Neuralink's technology works through a device about the size of five stacked coins that is placed inside the human brain through invasive surgery, of whic...

CHANDIGARH: Pressure mounted on the Nayab Singh Saini govt in Haryana Thursday to take a floor test, with JJP's Dushyant Chautala closing ranks with Congress and INLD to write to governor Bandaru Dattatreya for his "intervention" against the backdrop of BJP's refusal to acknowledge its loss of majority after three Independent MLAs withdrew support to the coalition.Dushyant upped the ante amid murmurs of a rift in his ranks, including unconfirmed reports of a hush-hush meeting between three JJP MLAs and former CM Manohar Lal Khattar at minister Mahipal Dhanda's residence in Panipat. Dhanda denied any such meeting was held, but sources said the JJP trio of Devender Babli (Tohana), Ramniwas Surjakhera (Narwana) and Jogi Ram Sihag (Barwala) weren't the only ones creating room for BJP to man...
