In 1989, an 18-year-old South African named Elon Musk approached a girl at a party in Canada, where he was attending college, and said, "I think a lot about electric cars. Long before Musk parlayed the $US165 million he made for his part in developing the internet-banking giant PayPal into the more than $US11 billion that underwrite Musk Industries today, he was thinking ahead, envisioning a world that merged... In the decades since, Musk has built the world's leading electric car company, Tesla Motors , beating Detroit at its own game: in November 2012, the Tesla Model S, a seven-seat sedan that sold for as much as $US100,000, was named Motor Trend... At the same time, Musk founded, funded and runs the aeronautics company SpaceX , and he conceived and is the board chairman of SolarCity, "the country's premier solar services company". Tesla cars are sold with the guarantee of free fuel in the form of solar energy from charging stations powered by solar panels supplied by SolarCity. And the lithium-ion battery technology that allows a Tesla car to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than five seconds and travel 300 miles on a single charge was instrumental in solving one of solar power's biggest obstacles – its...
ATHENS—Greece shut down its banking system, ordering lenders to stay closed for six days starting Monday, and its central bank moved to impose controls to prevent money from flooding out of the country. The decision came after the European Central Bank—meeting in an emergency session Sunday—opted not to expand a lifeline of emergency funds.
Liz Mayson was a girl in a country song: little pastel-yellow crop-top T-shirt, cutoff jeans, sun-kissed legs dangling from a tailgate of a truck parked in a cotton field. It was Labor Day weekend, 1988, deep in the South Carolina low country, September air as thick as a bull's neck and still as a statue. What little breeze did kick up from time to time felt like a hair dryer. She'd never been so hot, so she couldn't fathom this man walking her way dressed head-to-toe in black, a man she presumed must be the biggest Texaco fan on Earth. Everything he wore, gaudy belt buckle, trucker hat and corduroy pants included, read TEXACO in large block letters. She laughed a hearty no, just as a group of event organizers for the Tiny Lund Memorial race ran up and interrupted the meeting: Mr. Allison, it's time to ride. The event was a fundraiser held annually at Summerville Speedway, on the same weekend as the Winston Cup Series' Southern 500 at venerable Darlington Raceway, just up the road two hours in the Pee Dee region. To boost attendance at Summerville, race officials invited NASCAR stars to attend. Liz would later learn that spoke to the man's naive nerdy side, the vulnerability that made him so different and so special. She, and scores of others, would never meet anyone else like Davey Allison. Liz lived in Charleston and had little interest in auto racing, but her friend was dating one of the sons of the speedway track owners, the Powells, and invited her to tag along.
