Tesla shareholders have approved a massive new pay package for Tesla CEO Elon Musk, helping to ensure that he will continue running the company for another decade.
The package is performance based. If Tesla's stock value reaches $100 billion, Musk will receive an award equal to one percent of the company's shares, worth $1 billion. Musk gets another one percent for each $50 billion increase in the share price. If the stock rises to $650 billion—and Tesla meets other profit and revenue targets—Musk will get a series of stock awards totaling $45 billion.
Tesla's stock is currently worth around $53 billion, so even hitting the first target of $100 billion within the next 10 years won't be easy. If he doesn't reach this target, he'll get no compensation for serving as Tesla's CEO over the next decade.

Net neutrality is the number-one reason many rural Americans still lack broadband access—at least, that's what Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai says.
In a speech to the American Cable Association (ACA) today, Pai said that "closing the digital divide is the FCC's top policy priority" and that nothing impeded that goal more than net neutrality rules.
The ACA is a lobby group for small- and medium-sized cable companies and was one of Pai's major supporters in the December 2017 vote to repeal net neutrality rules.

A 55-year-old Spanish woman has died following repeated exposures to an acupuncture method that uses live, stinging bees instead of traditional needles, according to a recent case report in the Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical Immunology.
The painful and dangerous practice—called apipuncture—is generally peddled by nonmedical practitioners and, in recent years, has generated buzz among celebrities, most notably Gwyneth Paltrow and her chic lifestyle brand Goop. Paltrow and other proponents claim that insect venom can relieve a swarm of ailments, including inflammation, arthritis, generalized pain, scarring, and skin issues.
But evidence to back those claims is weak and mixed, and numerous medical studies have tallied serious risks and adverse events, including anaphylaxis, stroke, and death. Perhaps most alarming is that people with no history of allergies to bee venom can become sensitive to it over time. In fact, the more exposure, the greater the risk of developing a sensitivity. And life-threatening reactions appear unpredictably.
