Elon Musk Plans To Create A Dog-Friendly Futuristic Metropolis In Texas

Published

on

Elon Musk is a tech mogul with hands in the automotive industry, space market but now, he is adding building a city into the list.

He announced on Twitter he is planning to create the city of Starbase’ in Texas. The name is clearly derived from the state as ‘lone star’ state as depicted in its flag. Texas was an independent republic for ten years before accepting annexation to the United States, and the flag reflects the pride and go-it-alone spirit that is still part of the Texas way of life.

Upon further inquiry, Musk revealed the inclusion of SpaceX’s testing facility with Boca Chica village. Also, how it will be dog-friendly with the pets leader ‘Doge’- a nod to a medieval elected lord title of the same name and the cryptocurrency DOGE.

“Sending a tweet doesn’t make it so,” Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino told Bloomberg in an interview. “They have a lot of hoops and hurdles to go through before they can make it so.”

 

After Mars becomes habitable, Musk plans to send one million people to live there which he says will happen by 2050. He has dreamed to build a large city on Mars. However, it seems the Mars plan will take a while and he is looking at someplace closer to home.

This would give Musk even more roots in the Lone Star State. In December, he moved to Texas following a feud with California lawmakers. And in June, Tesla chose Austin, Texas for its largest auto assembly plant and plans to employ at least 5,000 workers and will get more than $60 million tax breaks from Travis County and a local school district over the next decade.

He describes the future 2,100-acre site along the Colorado River as an “ecological paradise… open to the public”

Musk shares ideas about his Mars plan involving ‘life in glass domes at first’. But it would eventually be terraformed – just not in our lifetime. He is also looking forward to leaving a legacy for a future space-faring civilization.

Musk also shares ideas about world construction and how it should be governed.

Buried in the text is a section titled ‘Governing Laws,’ which states SpaceX will not abide by international laws beyond Earth and the moon but instead adopt self-governing principles ‘established on good faith.’

Musk has taken it upon himself to declare Mars a ‘free planet.’

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 3 — Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH) today launched its Stewardship Framework, the foundation of its governance structure to help the pilgrims fund board delivers its mandate of providing world-class hajj services more effectively and sustainably.

TH Chairman Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof said the framework is based on Maqasid Syariah or the higher objectives of syariah that covers five main principles namely the protection of religion, life, intellect, property and future generations.

“The main objectives of TH’s Stewardship Framework are to embrace Maqasid Syariah, conduct operations in compliance with syariah principles and uphold strong corporate governance with integrity,” he said in a statement today.

According to Md Nor as part of the launch, TH would also roll out internal programmes progressively to help its employees to internalise the framework and its role in strengthening corporate governance moving forward.

He added since the TH establishment in 1963, it has organised hajj for 1.5 million people and now, about half of all Malaysian Muslims or 8.3 million are now their depositors to help them save for hajj.

Md Nor said the growth of TH over the years has given rise to the need for TH to strengthen its governance structure further through its Stewardship Framework.

“With over 58 years of experience in syariah-compliant operations, it is essential for us to ensure the long-term sustainability of TH,” he added.

(Video) Shocking To Know! These 5 Palestinian Women Give Birth In Israeli Prisons

Published

on

The news of a Palestinian woman that got charged with an attempted stabbing attack against the Israeli settlers that has gone viral is set to give birth in prison while awaiting trial, in reportedly the first such incident in nearly a decade and a half. Prison childbirth among Palestinian female detainees is considered rare. This is because there are far fewer female security prisoners than male security prisoners and even among female security prisoners, pregnancy is uncommon but this does not mean that cases like these did not occur before. There are actually numerous of them.

There are around 4,850 Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons, including 41 women, 225 children, and 540 administrative detainees, according to institutions concerned with prisoners’ affairs. Palestinian security prisoners are treated like any other detainee when it comes to giving birth behind bars. These are 5 similar cases.
