The Ultimate Skincare Routine: Killing Cancer Cells with Genetically Modified Bacteria
In a groundbreaking discovery that may revolutionize the world of cancer treatment, scientists have managed to genetically modify bacteria that live on human skin to combat cancer in mice. Using a cutting-edge technique, researchers spliced a gene into these bacteria that caused them to produce a protein which selectively binds to cancer cells and triggers an immune response. The results were nothing short of astounding: when applied to the skin of mice with skin cancer, the "designer bugs" were able to slow or even shrink the tumors. Though still in the testing phase, these genetically engineered microbes hold the promise of a brighter future for cancer patients everywhere. We wonder what the conspiracy theorists who believe a cancer cure exists, but is being covered up by the government will have to say about this.

California Civil Rights Department Forced to Beg Tesla to Stop Being Racist, Again
The California Civil Rights Department has taken legal action against Tesla to make the company comply with an investigation into alleged harassment and discrimination against Black workers. The department originally filed suit against Tesla in February 2022 after receiving complaints from Black workers over the use of racial slurs and the presence of racist writing and graffiti in common areas of the workplace. Shockingly, Tesla has reportedly been avoiding the lawsuit using tactics such as trying to pause the lawsuit, dismissing the case altogether, and even suing the agency for not investigating properly before suing them. Maybe Tesla should try condemning racist workplace culture instead of playing legal games? Just a thought. This comes after Tesla has already been ordered to pay $3.2 million to a Black former worker at its Fremont factory in a separate discrimination case, and they may face similar penalties or damages if found guilty in this lawsuit.
When Justice Prevails: Alleged Entrepreneur Charged with Murder of Cash App Founder
In a moment of justice, the tech world was rocked by news of the arrest of a self-described entrepreneur in connection with the fatal stabbing of Cash App founder Bob Lee. The suspect, identified as Nima Momeni, was apprehended by San Francisco police on Thursday and charged with murder. The two men were known to each other, authorities said, leaving many in the tech community wondering what could have led to such a tragic outcome. Momeni, a self-described tech entrepreneur and consultant, is being held without bail and faces arraignment on Friday. Lee’s death also ignited criticism against authorities in San Francisco for their laissez-faire response to the city's violent crime.
EV Industry's Ugly Stepsister: Lucid Group Fails to Impress with Lower Q1 Production
Luxury electric car-maker, Lucid Group, fell short on its production and delivery figures in the first quarter, which wasn't exactly a shocker since they were already expecting it to be a total flop. The company produced 2,314 vehicles and delivered 1,406, a far cry from the 3,493 vehicles produced and 1,932 delivered in the previous quarter. To add insult to injury, the company's shares plunged 3% in after-market trade. Apparently, Tesla's aggressive price cuts that we reported on last week continue to lure consumers and won't help matters either.
Parler Shuts Down Temporarily With Plans to Give Unheard Voices a Chance to Keep Shouting
Media giant Starboard has reportedly forked out an undisclosed sum to acquire Parler, the conservative-friendly social media app, and will temporarily shut it down for a complete overhaul. The move, which follows Parler's removal from app stores after the US Capitol riots in 2021, is aimed at creating a new digital hangout for "unsupported online communities" that don't get enough love from mainstream platforms. Starboard, which already owns American Wire and BizPac Review, says it doesn't think a Twitter clone just for conservatives is a realistic business strategy anymore.
