See Full Image Gallery >>

Lucid is going after the Tesla Model S with its base-model Air sedan, which will pack 406 miles of range on a single charge, with a starting price of $77,400 (or $69,900 after the $7,500 federal tax credit). With this announcement, Lucid’s four initial models are locked in, offering total range between 406 and 517 miles and power output from 480 horses to 1,080. The base model will take the fight to Tesla’s 402-mile, $72,000 Model S sedan.

When Lucid debuted its production-spec sedan back in September, it lead with its heavy hitters. But just because you can serve caviar doesn’t mean you don’t need bread and butter. The Lucid Dream, which is the marquee launch model, packs a 1,080-horsepower, dual-motor powertrain that will propel the 500-mile electric car to 60 MPH in under 2.5 seconds as it makes its way through the quarter-mile in

Lucid Air packs Tesla Model S-beating 406-mile range and 480 hp for $69,900

You could have one of these in your driveway for slightly less than a base model Tesla Model S, with some caveats, of course.


Lucid Motors

Lucid has been making waves with the introduction of the production version of its Air electric sedan. Not only has the company been keeping Tesla in its sights from a technological standpoint, handily exceeding the Model S’ already stellar range, and offering genuinely staggering performance figures while doing it.

Unfortunately, the performance numbers aren’t the only thing that people found staggering. The price for the top-tier Dream edition clocks in at $169,000, for example, but it turns out that Lucid had something else up its sleeve. See, according to Lucid’s announcement on Wednesday, it will also offer a much more affordable Air model that still offers big range estimates.

Transitioning to hybrid model, North Olmsted City Schools forfeits playoff football game due to positive COVID-19 test

NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio — After a player tested positive for COVID-19, North Olmsted City Schools forfeited its playoff game against Avon scheduled for Friday night (Oct. 16).

Joining the player in a 14-day quarantine will be nine additional students and two staff members who were exposed.

“Everyone is doing fine, and we look forward to their return to school as soon as possible,” North Olmsted City Schools Superintendent Michael E. Zalar said. “We’re very disappointed to have to cancel our game.

“The kids worked hard and won their first playoff game last week. Nobody wants to see their season end this way.”

The Eagles team finished the abbreviated season like it started with having to withdraw from their season opener in August after a player tested positive.

“It’s unfortunate for our student athletes,” Zalar said. “Our players and coaches have done a great job of following our safety protocols, but

Building A Nearshore Tech Team Through The BOT Model

Co-founder and CMO at CodersLink, a technology solutions agency helping companies find and build elite IT nearshore teams in LATAM.

Nearshore tech teams are often regarded as one of the ways large companies bolster their IT department productivity.

Hong Kong takes back seat as China’s Xi promotes neighbor as future ‘model city’

China’s President Xi Jinping praised the tech-hub city of Shenzhen in a landmark speech on Wednesday, leaving some puzzling over the future of nearby Hong Kong, as China’s traditional global foothold.

Xi said Shenzhen, often dubbed China’s Silicon Valley and home to tech giants Huawei and Tencent, was making “historic leaps” and “achieving miracles.”

He also announced that the area would be given more leeway to pursue opening-up reforms and become a “model city for a strong socialist country.”

Once a small fishing village adjacent to Hong Kong, Shenzhen is now home to about 13 million and was transformed in 1980 by veteran Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, after he designated it a “Special Economic Zone,” carving out capitalist privileges in the staunchly communist country.

Retracing Deng’s footprints 40 years later during his own southern tour this week, Xi announced Shenzhen would again become a testing ground for foreign investment and

Instagram model with ‘biggest cheeks in the world’ wants more

This Ukrainian Instagram model was not being tongue in cheek when she said she wants even larger features.

Anastasia Pokreshchuk, 30, claims to have the “biggest cheeks in the world” — but wants to pump them up with fillers even further, the Daily Star reported.

“You may think that they are too big but I think that they’re a little bit small, I need to refresh them again soon,” the Kiev resident said.

Pokreshchuk received her first cheek injections four years ago and has not looked back.

“After I had the injections and saw the changes in my cheeks, I fell in love with them,” she said.

“I love them, I want them to look like this and I’m very happy. I regularly inject other parts of my face myself,” she added. “I understand that they look weird for other people but I don’t mind.”

Pokreshchuk — who has amassed
