Tesla has become incredibly popular in recent years. The electric car company's revolutionary powerwall battery allows you to charge your car with energy generated from residential solar panels. It has already sold out through 2016. And Elon Musk is hoping his Model S will be the first mass-produced all-electric car. He's building a Tesla Gigafactory outside of Reno, Nevada that he is hoping will put production at 500,000 cars per year.
Musk is also working on "conquering range anxiety" with Tesla models averaging between 200 and 270 mpg. Tesla is rapidly expanding its network of supercharging stations across the country. The company even partnered with Airbnb to install charging stations at host homes, first in California and eventually around the country.
So it really comes as no surprise that celebrities can't get enough of Musk's Tesla. Two nights ago, Stephen Colbert mentioned to Musk on his new Late Show that he personally owns a Tesla. Turns out, so do a lot of other celebrities.

There's at least one celebrity who isn't in love with Tesla though. George Clooney had a Roadster but was reportedly unhappy with it and auctioned it off a few years ago. Maybe he will opt for a Model S now.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report on Nov. 13 that describes a list of microorganisms that have become resistant to antibiotics and pose a serious threat to public health. Each year these so-called superbugs cause more than 2.8 million infections in the U.S. and kill more than 35,000 people.

Under the guise of responding to consumer complaints that today's energy- and water-efficient dishwashers take too long, the Department of Energy has proposed creating a new class of dishwashers that wouldn't be subject to any water or energy efficiency standards at all. The move would not only undermine three decades of progress for consumers and the environment, it is based on serious distortions of fact regarding today's dishwashers.

If you have oak trees in your neighborhood, perhaps you've noticed that some years the ground is carpeted with their acorns, and some years there are hardly any. Biologists call this pattern, in which all the oak trees for miles around make either lots of acorns or almost none, "masting."

Tashi Yudon peeks out from behind a net curtain at the rooftops below and lets out a sigh, her breath frosting on the windowpane in front of her.
Some 700 kilometers away in the capital city Delhi, temperatures have yet to dip below 25 degrees Celsius, but in Spiti there is already an atmosphere of impatient expectation as winter settles over the valley.
