tesla knocks $1,100 off price of the model 3

Tesla is cutting $1,100 from the base price of its car designed for the mass market, the Model 3.The electric car company now says on its website that the car starts at $42,900, still a ways from its goal of lowering the base price to $35,000.Tesla cut 7 percent of its workforce last month to trim costs and reduce the price of the car. CEO Elon Musk says the Model 3 must be competitive with gasoline-fueled cars for the company to succeed.For $42,900 buyers will get a rear-wheel-drive Model 3 in black with Tesla’s lower-range battery that goes 264 miles per charge.The price doesn’t include federal and state tax credits. The federal credit is now $3,750, but that expires at the end of the year. ■…

tiny satellites fall silent after proving new tech at mars

Two tiny satellites have fallen silent hundreds of millions of miles away, after proving new technology at Mars.The twin CubeSats, nicknamed WALL-E and EVE, shadowed NASA’s InSight lander to Mars last year. As the lander descended to the Martian surface in November, the briefcase-size satellites flew past the red planet, providing real-time updates to ground controllers in this first-of-its-kind experiment.This week, NASA said it hasn’t heard from them for more than a month now — and doubts it ever will.WALL-E, which had been leaking fuel since liftoff last May, last radioed back on Dec. 29. It’s now more than 1 million miles (1.6 million kilometers) beyond Mars. EVE went mum on Jan. 4; it’s nearly 2 million miles (3.2 million kilometers) past the red planet. These were the first…

city ready to roll out new gunfire-detection system

Ohio’s capital city is preparing to roll out a new gunshot-detection system to alert officers to gunfire.Columbus city officials stressed during a demonstration this week that the web-based technology won’t replace the need for residents who hear gunshots to call 911. The Columbus Dispatch reports the California-based company running the ShotSpotter system will record gunshots and alert officers to where they originated.Officers will get an alert on their cruiser computer terminals within a minute of shots being fired. Specialists monitoring the system in California will use technology to confirm the sound is gunfire before alerting police.Columbus Police Deputy Chief Richard Bash says the system will always be recording, but the city will only receive recordings of gunshots.Similar systems are in operation in more than 80 U.S. cities. ■…

review: michael chapman looks back, forward on ‘true north’

Michael Chapman, “True North” (Paradise of Bachelors)If John Bonham called his drumsticks “trees,” Michael Chapman must have cables on his acoustic guitar instead of strings. Like Bonham’s booming but graceful play, Chapman’s tones are thick and elegant and provide his songs with a ringing, rich emotional heft.“True North” is the Englishman’s second album in a row admirably produced by Steve Gunn and, similarly to “50,” its 2017 predecessor, offers a few new tracks, fresh takes on several older ones and a pair of instrumentals shining the spotlight on his sizable guitar skills.Including such gems as “Fully Qualified Survivor” and “Savage Amusement,” Chapman’s discography is extensive, including fascinating instrumental albums, and he’s revisited his own songs before, but the re-workings here should satisfy even the most fanatical connoisseurs of his…
