Personal information exposed in Nova Scotia government website breach

  Personal information exposed in Nova Scotia government website breach The Nova Scotia government has called in Halifax Regional Police to investigate a breach of the freedom-of-information website that included access to personal information.

Sensitive information accessed includes birth dates, social insurance numbers, addresses and government-services client information. Credit card information was not accessed during the breach, according to the government.

Additionally, Tesla recently started working on a new production line for Model 3 drivetrains at the Gigafactory in Nevada, where the company also expects to start producing the battery cells for the vehicle during the second quarter. In a meeting last month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that he was

However, it’s not rare for Tesla to temporarily shut down production and every time, it spurs speculation of an update to be introduced to those vehicles. We have been anticipating a Model S and Model X update in 2018, but it’s still unconfirmed at this point.

It was the second time since February that Tesla has temporarily shut down its production line for the Model 3 at its Fremont, California plant.

"These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates," a Tesla representative said on Monday.

BuzzFeed, which first reported the news, said workers were expected to use vacation days or stay home without pay during the four- to five-day production pause.

After repeated delays in production of its Model 3 sedan, Tesla is now trying to catch up to a target of building 2,500 vehicles per week by the end of the second quarter. Problems within its heavily roboticized assembly line have complicated those efforts.

Sony's pro 4K camcorder has Netflix-friendly 'Instant HDR'

  Sony's pro 4K camcorder has Netflix-friendly 'Instant HDR' HDR has become just as important as 4K for streaming and Blu-Ray users who care about seeing films and series the way the creators intended. The FS5-II can handle 60 fps high-framerate 4K recording, shoot 4K 120 fps in four-second bursts, and output 240 fps 1080p for eight seconds. Internally, it can handle 8-bit 4K at 30fps, or HD at up to 120 fps. However, many production pros will probably attach an Atomos Ninja or other device and record RAW 4K using Apple's new ProRes RAW or regular ProRes recording formats. It also packs new color science that improves skin tones, a common complaint about the last model.

The company temporarily suspended production at its Fremont, California plant as well as at its Gigafactory in Nevada, Feb. One Response to “ Tesla Shut Down Model 3 Line – Again – to Make Upgrades”. Jack says

Tesla shut down production of its Model 3 electric sedan in late February as part of plans to "improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks." Tesla suspended Model 3 production last month to fix automation.

On Friday, Musk acknowledged for the first time that he had overrelied on automation in the Model 3 assembly line, a stunning concession from Tesla's leader who has previously scoffed at competitors' manufacturing prowess and bragged about creating an "Alien Dreadnought" within the Fremont factory by 2018.

"Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake," Musk tweeted on Friday. "To be precise, my mistake. Humans are underrated."

He also tweeted on Friday that Tesla would be profitable and cash flow positive in the third and fourth quarters, with no need to raise money.

Many analysts dispute this analysis, which hinges on a rapid rise in production of the Model 3 sedan. Delays and lower-than-expected volume have postponed revenue from cars being delivered to customers from reaching Tesla's bottom line.

Shares did not move after hours after falling 3 percent on Monday, pressured by Musk's acknowledgement, a report alleging that Tesla undercounted worker injuries - which the company denies - and an amended lawsuit originally filed last year that alleges Musk misled investors about Model 3 production.

By Simon Alvarez. Posted on March 29, 2018. Reddit. Tweet. Share. Share. Email. Comments. Tesla has reportedly put a temporary stoppage on the Model S and Model X production line, as the company shifts focus to ramping its Model 3 production numbers by end of the quarter.

Tesla is planning to halt vehicle production for one week in February to prepare for Model 3 pre- production , which the company says will begin Shutting down a plant for days just to set up to produce verification prototypes, pre- production or series production of a new model is not normal.

In February, Tesla suspended production of its Model 3 for four days in what it said was planned work to adjust equipment in order to improve automation and address bottlenecks. It warned of possibly more periods of downtime in coming months.

Automakers generally do stop or slow production of new models to iron out problems with the production system, although Tesla took shortcuts with the testing of its production line in order to get to market more quickly, shortcuts that some experts say have resulted in early manufacturing problems.
