JAGUAR BROKE A WORLD RECORD WITH THIS TINY ELECTRIC BOAT

Jaguar’s battery-powered V20E boat just broke a maritime speed record.

Peter Dredge, the co-founder of Jaguar Vector, piloted the boat at speeds of 88.62 miles per hour across eight miles of the Coniston Water lake in Cumbria, England. His speeds broke the previous record of 76.8 mph set ten years ago.

The small and speedy boat was developed with racing experts over at Vector, as well as Williams Advanced Engineering, from which it borrowed the electric drivetrain’s components. The specifics of the battery, motor, and controller are unclear, but the team used similar hardware and technology that Jaguar uses in Formula E, the all-electric street racing [...]

UNITY WITH MOSQUE HOSTED IN CHURCH

When Alia Kamareddine first settled down in Oxford, the nearest mosque at which she could worship was in Halifax – which is a 2-hour drive.

BORING CO. FLAMETHROWER PARTY HEATS UP ELON

Not much got in the way of Elon Musk fans determined to win bragging rights for picking up one of the first 1 000 flamethrowers sold by the billionaire’s Boring Company.

Dennis Dohrman hopped in his truck and drove 2 620 miles from North Carolina to Boring headquarters in Hawthorne, California. Dan Thorman cut short a business trip to Singapore and came straight to Saturday’s event from Los Angeles International Airport. George Matus brought along his parents and younger brother on a 10-hour road trip.

MOTHER ELEPHANT MAKES SURE HER BABY GOT A LULLABY

This heart-warming video from a wildlife sanctuary provides further evidence that music—and caring—are universal languages even to elephants.

Lek Chailert is one of the caretakers at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In addition to looking after the animals during the day, she has a knack for singing them to sleep.

In a unique video uploaded by the park, one of the female pachyderms, Faa Mai, can be seen interrupting Chailert’s interaction with a group of visitors.

Amused by her large companion’s insistence, Chailert can’t help but giggle as Faa Mai nudges her along one of the park trails.

“She pushed me along out into the field, directing [...]
