A video uploaded to YouTube on Sunday claims to show the first stages of construction on Tesla’s new factory in Shanghai, China.
The video, which appears to be shot from a drone, shows what the description says is the lot Tesla will use for the factory, which is surrounded by a fence.
The video also shows construction workers and equipment, as well as a small structure that is visible near the center of the frame from 1:41 to 1:45.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

A video uploaded to YouTube on Sunday claims to show the first stages of construction on Tesla’s factory in Shanghai, China.

The video, which appears to be shot from a drone, shows what the description says is the lot Tesla will use for the factory, which is surrounded by a fence. The video also shows construction workers and equipment, as well as a small structure that is visible near the center of the frame from 1:41 to 1:45.

It’s unclear if the structure is part of the factory or is meant just for the factory’s construction phase, though the video’s description section says it’s “a simple work shed,” according to Google Translate.

“The site of the Tesla (China) factory in Shanghai Lingang has been encircled by the wall and ground work is underway. At the scene, the construction workers were busy setting up a simple work shed, and the fields around the factory were also flattened. Special service personnel are also on duty in front of the construction site, and non-related personnel are not allowed to enter the factory construction site,” the description says.

4 things we learned from the Toronto Raptors’ 4-game road trip

The Toronto Raptors return home from an eventful four-game West Coast road trip that saw a bit of everything from the NBA’s top team thus far this season.

After blowing out the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors — both games without the services of Kawhi Leonard — the Raptors were on top of the NBA world and looked as promising as we’ve ever seen in the franchise’s history. I wrote as much following the 20-point victory in Oakland over a full-strength Warriors team, so, naturally, Toronto went on to drop its next two games, this time with the Raps’ other marquee star, Kyle Lowry, out of the lineup.

When Double D’s reopens (soon!) here’s what you’ll be eating

More than two years after a three-alarm fire destroyed the interior, Double D’s Sports Grille will reopen in Los Gatos with a refreshed look and new menu items.

Staff training is going on now, and an opening date should be announced any day now.

In the meantime, diners can ponder the new menu items created by executive chef Robert Moreno and co-owners Dean and Darin Devincenzi.

Among the offerings will be Korean Style Baby Back Ribs and Poke Lettuce Cups as appetizers; Pork Tenderloin and Fish Tacos as entrees; a homemade Three Strike Turkey burger; a Lemon Salmon Penne pasta dish; a Kale and Bacon entree salad; and three new pizzas, Thai Chicken, Carne Asada and Fifth Wheel, with salami, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, bacon and sausage.

Several burgers are on the new menu, with a special brisket blend for the beef ones.

And, because the April 2016 fire caused only property damage, the team here could have a little fun with one new menu creation. The Three Alarm Fire sandwich, the brainstorm of Darin’s daughter Danika Devincenzi, tops spicy fried chicken with pepperjack cheese, jalapeño slaw and chipotle aioli.

Stay tuned for an opening date. www.doubleds.com

7 things I’ve completely changed my mind about over the past 10 years

mother with kid

As your life changes and progresses, your priorities and responsibilities can shift significantly.
Here, author Jennifer Still details seven things she’s completely changed her mind about over the past decade.

It makes sense that as we grow older and experience more of life, our thoughts and feelings about certain things change.

Beliefs we’ve held for years that we believed we’d never budge on are suddenly seen in a different light and we realize we may have gotten it wrong. It’s called growing as a person, and it’s a good thing.

While I’ve certainly evolved my way of thinking about many things over the past decade, these are the seven topics that I’ve done a complete 180 on.

1. Having children

While I was never gung-ho about having kids to begin with, I’ve definitely become vehemently against the idea over the past decade. I’m simply too attached to having freedom with my time, money, and energy and realize that I’m not selfless enough to even want to give that up for a child. No doubt parenthood is rewarding, it’s just not for me.

2. The institution of marriage

One thing I was definitely certain I would never do is get married. While I had nothing against the institution as a whole, outdated and unnecessary as it is, I’ve always supported couples who wanted to declare their commitment to one another via a legal contract. My lack of personal investment in the idea all changed in 2014 when I did actually tie the knot, albeit in a civil ceremony with only our witnesses present.

3. The value of work

While I was raised to appreciate the value of hard work and have pretty much always had at …read more
