Two analysts looked at automotive electrification technology recently, each coming away with separate findings that are favorable for

Tesla,

yet they are deeply divided on the stock.

New Street Research’s Pierre Ferragu believes Tesla stock is a good bet at the current price. Bernstein’s Toni Sacconaghi thinks shares are seriously overvalued and could fall almost 60%.

Sacconaghi recently hosted a webinar with Sandy Munro, describing him as an “automotive guru…well known for his extensive tear downs of Tesla and other automobiles and EVs.” Ferragu, for his part, tuned into a Mercedes-Benz automotive technology event to get a sense of what traditional auto makers have in store to compete with Tesla (ticker: TSLA).

What he and this team saw “got us worried,” but not about Tesla, he said. Instead, they are concerned about the

Current events show how America needs journalist | Daily Editorial

In a year of fighting a global pandemic, historic protests for racial equality, and the rapidly approaching presidential election, America needs journalists to bring them critical reporting. The events of this year have Americans looking to local journalists to inform them about the news and events in their communities.

People trust and appreciate their local news publishers. But publishers have also been affected by the pandemic. And at a time when the public wants and needs quality news and information more than ever, the major tech platforms still refuse to compensate most news publishers, even while they pay creators for the ability to distribute music and lots of other kinds of content.

Combined, these challenges have left numerous publishers across the country in danger of shuttering before the end of this election cycle, with even more disappearing before the next crisis.

As we celebrate National Newspaper Week this year, we

Ice discharge in the North Pacific set off series of climate events during last ice age — ScienceDaily

Repeated catastrophic ice discharges from western North America into the North Pacific contributed to, and perhaps triggered, hemispheric-scale changes in the Earth’s climate during the last ice age, new research published online today in Science reveals.

The discovery provides new insight into the impact rapidly melting ice flowing into the North Pacific may have on the climate across the planet, said Maureen Walczak, a paleoclimatologist in Oregon State University’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences and the study’s lead author.

“Understanding how the ocean has interacted with glacial ice in the past helps us predict what could happen next,” Walczak said.

The Cordilleran ice sheet once covered large portions of western North America from Alaska to Washington state and western Montana. Radiocarbon dating and analyses of the marine sediment record revealed that recurrent episodes of discharge from this ice sheet over the past 42,000 years were early events in

TCF Center teams with Premier Event Technology to offer virtual, hybrid events

While it waits for the return of large events and conventions in its halls, TCF Center has found a new way to make them a reality.

It’s teamed up with Rochester Hills-based Premier Event Technology LLC to coordinate virtual events that pair its expertise with TCF’s in-house television studio and bandwidth capabilities 10 gigabytes of bandwidth.

It began marketing the virtual and hybrid events last month.

For TCF, those events are likely to be a loss leader, General Manager Claude Molinari said.

It will get some revenue from leasing space to any organizations opting to host a virtual event and 15 percent of the online events revenue under a revenue-sharing agreement with Premier, he said.

But the virtual offerings are really about “maintaining the relationship with our customers, staying relevant and frankly, helping customers to stay in business,” he said.

“If they go out of business before this pandemic ends,
