Tesla will cut seven per cent of its workforce as it tries to lower prices and break out of the niche machine market to produce an electric vehicle that more people can afford.

Cheap model TESA now is the $ 44,000 model 3, and it needs to improve its customer base to survive.

"Looking forward to our mission of accelerating the advent of sustainable transport and energy, which is important for all life on earth, we have a very difficult challenge: making our cars, batteries and solar products cost-competitive with fossil fuels "CEO Elon Musk said in a letter to the staff. "While we have made great progress, our products are still too expensive for most people."

Tesla has boasted its payroll significantly to meet production goals, but then cut its staff by nine per cent in June. The company delivered more than 245,000 electric cars and SUVs last year, nearly as many as in previous years combined. But it still fell short of a target set nearly three years ago by manufacturing 500,000 vehicles for the year.

Musk said in October that Tesla Inc., based in Palo Alto, California, has 45,000 employees. Seven per cent cut would mean about 3,150 people would lose their jobs.

Tesla posted a $ 311 million quarterly profit in October, only its third-quarter profit in eight years as a public company.

Musk noted that the benefit was driven by his ability to sell higher priced vehicles in North America. Tesla dominates the market, but it wants to make electric vehicles for the masses.

And while preliminary numbers indicate another profitable quarter ahead, Musk said it was a smaller one.

Shares tumbled 11 per cent Friday.

It is Tesla's long-held goal of getting a less-expensive, mid-range Tesla model 3 on the road.

"Making in May, we need to provide at least the 3 model mid-range model in all markets, as we need to reach more customers who can afford our vehicles," Musk said in the letter.

The key for TESLA is to create an entry-level car in the mid-$ 30,000 range that would put it in direct competition with major automakers.

The Transportation Safety Board says an uninvited fire forced a WestJet plane to return to Calgary International Airport soon after, at the end of June, caused E-cigarette lithium-ion batteries to fail, a passenger failed to declare in his luggage.

The agency said in a report that a backpack caught fire and caused minor thermal damage to the fire-resistant cargo compartment liner.

An investigation could not determine if the damage occurred before the batteries arrived at the airport or during baggage handling.

The over-frequented frequent flyer was aware of airline policies that E-cigarettes and lithium-ion batteries could be carried in the cabinet and removed from the device, but two spare batteries were left in its shipping bag.

The proliferation of personal electronic devices using batteries has increased events including smoke, fire or explosion because of the high temperatures they generate. The US There. Federal Aviation Administration has recorded 206 incidents including lithium-ion batteries between 1991 and May 2018.

The TSB report states that there is a shared responsibility between passengers, air carriers and security screeners to ensure the contents of the luggage comply with the rules on restricted items.

The federal government is demanding Canadians like their Vodka.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has opened consultations on whether to redefine the clear, neutral spirit and open Interprovincial trade for innovative power distillers who want to try something new.

Under the regular rules that have not changed in the decade, Vadka must be made of each grain or potato and filtered through charcoal.

A new generation of small-package distilleries are challenging the norms.

Some use everything from milk to grapes, while others minimize filtration, which removes subtle flavors.

Floating the legal definition makes it tough for them to sell their liquor across provincial boundaries, although they can export internationally.

They say that, historically, liquor was made from which a local community is left over.

The United States and Europe changed their definition of liquor long ago.

Investment planning can often be seen as a luxury for the financially stable, but advisers say it is especially important for those who are starting out in their careers or who are challenging with debt.

"Sometimes people think they are not earning enough money to go and sit down with a financial advisor or talk to a professional," said Sara Zollo, an advisor and financial planner with Sun Life Financial.

"I think it's a mistake, I think the sooner you do … the sooner your situation will reverse and the blackheads head on. When a plan is valuable."

Zollo says its clients range from rich people with $ 1,000,000 or more into liquid assets to recent college graduates embarking on their first job to those who are dealing with spending more than they deserve.

The first advice she gives all clients is to work out a budget first and do a cash flow analysis that will show that the client is running a surplus or a deficit every month.

While it is vital to reduce debt, Zollo suggests the allocation should be 80 per cent of available funds being put to debt, with 20 per cent set aside in a temporary savings account.

"Let's say it's a different expense than your car breaks down, and people are going to use their credit card and add to their debt because they don't have an emergency fund," she said. "They end up being like a hamster on a hamster."

It can take four or five years to pay debt, and going that long without any savings or financial plan would be a critical mistake, Zollo said.

A generalized thumb struggle is to turn three to six months from the household in the event of an emergency.

Jason Heath, a financial planner payment, noted that the low to moderate incomes could not benefit, in some cases even penalized if they invest in a registered retirement savings plan.

"The real benefit of an RRSP is getting a tax deduction when you're in a high tax cloud and pulling the money out when you're at a low tax bracket," he said.

"When your income starts low, it is not inconceivable that you pay the money in a low tax clock and pull the money out at a high tax clock. Sometimes the higher tax retirement is not even necessarily the income tax, It may be from government tax benefits. "

In this case, Heat said that a tax-free savings account could be a better option, but only if the debt has already been paid off.

"For someone in a low tax cluster or low income who may have debt, save money in a TFA at one per cent (interest) when they have mortgage debt in four per cent, a line of credit at eight per cent or credit card debt. At 18% or more, it doesn't really make any sense, "he said.

"If you pay off the debt or save, the ultimate goal is to increase your net worth. The debt repayment can be the best investment they can make the less debt you have, the more you can save for the future."

Laurie Campbell with Credit Canada says the best financial advice for someone with a low income is to ask for help if you need it.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is consulting opposition parties and other lawmakers on Thursday in a battle to set up a backbone of BREAKIT after surviving a non-confidence vote, although there was little immediate sign of a breakthrough from the branded "a trick" by the chief. Opposition leader.

European Union countries are stepping up preparations for a disorderly British exit on March 29 after the US. There. Parliament denied the suggestion that Boksit rebates with this block.

Lawmakers carried out the deal on Tuesday, in a crushing defeat for May, which suffered the worst parliamentary defeat in modern British history.

He said she spoke "in a constructive spirit" with leaders of opposition parties and other tenants in a proposal to find a way forward for Britain's EU forces. Exit.

The government confirmed that May will meet a Monday deadline to issue a plan, and that the Legislatives will have a full day to debate it – and, hardly, amend it – on January 29.

There was little sign of a breakthrough in uniting parliament's fueled factions, whose confrontation demands a range of postponement from Britain's departure dates to a new referendum on whether to leave the EU. Or stay.

Jeremy Korbin, leader of the Labor Party opposition, said he would not meet May until a non-trade brosit "off the table".

"The last night's offer of party-party talks turned out to be simply a trick, not a serious attempt to participate with the new reality that is needed," he said.
