Just because NFTs have lost much of their mainstream appeal, doesn’t mean the token creators are done fighting tooth and nail for the last scraps of past boom times. Late last week, a California judge decreed that those silly, derivative, and disturbing Bored Ape Yacht Club non-fungible tokens have trademark…

Elon Musk broke US labor law in 2018 when he Tesla factory workers would forgo stock options if they chose to unionize, according to a federal appeals court. On Friday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, in a decision spotted by , upheld a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling that found Musk made unlawful threats around employee compensation.
In May 2018, a Twitter user asked Musk about his stance on unions. “Nothing stopping Tesla team at our car plant from voting union. Could do so tmrw if they wanted,” he . “But why pay union dues & give up stock options for nothing? Our safety record is 2X better than when plant was UAW & everybody already gets healthcare.”
Tesla factory literally has miles of painted yellow lines & tape. Report about forklifts not beeping is also bs. These are both demonstrably false, but were reported as “facts” by Reveal.

The tweet immediately drew the attention of labor activists, and in 2021, the NLRB, responding to a complaint from the United Auto Workers union, found Musk had threatened employees. Tesla has argued the tweet was Musk’s way of pointing out that workers at other automakers don’t receive stock options. NLRB chair Wilma Liebman saw it differently. “The employee is going to hear it as, ‘If I vote to unionize, stock options will no longer be an option,'” she .
After reviewing the decision, the Fifth Circuit Court sided with the NLRB. “Because stock options are part of Tesla’s employees’ compensation, and nothing in the tweet suggested that Tesla would be forced to end stock options or that the UAW would be the cause of giving up stock options, substantial evidence supports the NLRB’s conclusion that the tweet is as an implied threat to end stock options as retaliation for unionization,” the panel .
The court ordered Musk to delete the tweet. As of the writing of this article, the message is still live. The Fifth Circuit Court also upheld an order from the NLRB that Tesla reinstates Richard Ortiz, a worker the automaker fired for organizing employees at its Fremont factory in California.

TIKTOK users can’t pass up a dance trend, even all the way out in the country.
One cowgirl showed off her fancy footwork and gained fans even though she faltered.
The cowgirl isn’t shy about her down-home roots, but she did show the “simple life” can get awfully complicated when there’s dancing involved.
But she fell short (literally) in the final moments of her routine.
Dressed in a bell-sleeved crop top, Edwards did a “cowgirl boogie.”
She dropped it low in her distressed Levis and kicked her leather boots up.
As she twirled a fake lasso above her western hat, Edwards looked picture-perfect.
But in the last few seconds of her two-step, she plopped flat on her bottom in the dirt.
“Practiced this dance forever and this is what happened,” Edwards lamented in the video’s caption.
Edwards laughed off her embarrassment, and thanks to compliments from commenters, her ego recovered quickly.
“Love it, blooper and all,” one admirer wrote.
Another said despite her blunder, she was still “Perfection in a video.”
“You are stunningly gorgeous,” said one person.
An envious commenter told Edwards, “You make everything look good.”
“God broke the mold when he made you, cause wow,” said a delighted fan.
Several complimented her dancing. “You got the moves,” a man wrote.
Only a few commenters expressed concern for her well-being.
One man said it “looked like a cute fall” but still asked, “Are you okay, though?”
“Thanks, my ankle actually hurts still a little,” Edwards admitted.
“Well, put some ice on it and relax for a bit,” the man responded. “I’d like to see more of your dancing.”
A THUG who battered his girlfriend’s neighbour in a parking row had previously broken into the I’m A Celebrity castle.
Darryl Tipton punched Robert Edwards after he asked him not to block his drive with his car.

Mr Edwards suffered a cut elbow in the unprovoked attack last October.
Tipton, 34, of Colwyn Bay, North Wales, admitted assault and got a 12-month community order from magistrates in Llandudno on Monday.
He must also pay a £120 fine and £100 compo.
In 2021, Tipton walked into the I’m A Celeb set at Gwrych Castle near Abergele while the show’s stars were evacuated during a storm.
He bragged: “ITV need to beef up their security.”
