A bison attacked a Yellowstone visitor, Petition to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 nears target, Musk threatens to fire Tesla employees, Yellen admits error on inflation and more top stories trending in news.
A 25-year-old Ohio woman visiting Yellowstone National Park got too close to a female bison on Tuesday and was attacked, impaled, and tossed 10 feet into the air, NBC reported.
Park regulations require visitors to remain more than 25 yards from the animals. Buffalo are unpredictable and the largest mammals in North America, able to run at 35 mph. The woman was rushed to the hospital for treatment of puncture wounds and other injuries. It was unclear whether the woman died.
A petition that is calling for DC Warner Bros to remove Amber Heard from the film Aquaman 2 has reached 4.4 million signatures, just shy of the target of 4.5 million, which would make it one of the ‘top signed on Change.org’. According to the petition, Heard has been ‘exposed as a domestic abuser by Johnny Depp’ during their multimillion-dollar court battle, the Daily Mail reported. The New York Post contacted Heard and Warner Bros. and both have not responded to requests for comment about the petition. It has previously been reported that Aquaman star Jason Momoa allegedly has advocated keeping Heard in her role in the sequel.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is apparently cracking the whip on the company’s executive employees, telling staff “remote work is no longer acceptable,” the Daily Mail reported.
In a leaked email, Musk told executive staff they face being fired unless they work at least 40 hours a week in the office. “Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers.”
Musk went on to specify that the office “must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to the job duties,” Bloomberg reported.
In a tweet, while not directly addressing whether the leaked email is authentic, Musk wrote: “They should pretend to work somewhere else.”
US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen admitted Tuesday she was wrong about the “path that inflation would take” and that inflation only posed a “small risk.”
“I think I was wrong then about the path that inflation would take,” Yellen told CNN. “As I mentioned, there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy that have boosted energy and food prices and supply bottlenecks that have affected our economy badly that I didn’t – at the time – didn’t fully understand, but we recognize that now.”
