US Imposes 100% Tariff on Chinese Electric Vehicles

In a move to protect the domestic auto industry, the Biden administration plans to raise tariffs on Chinese electric vehicle (EV) imports from 25% to 100%. The sharp increase comes amid concerns that China could flood the US market with cheap EVs, threatening American manufacturers.

The administration aims to shield US automakers as they invest in EV and battery production to reindustrialize the country and reduce carbon emissions. The tariff hike is the latest effort by the White House to impose costs on China, even as the two nations seek to cooperate on climate change issues.

Neuralink Reveals Malfunction in First Human Brain Implant

Elon Musk's Neuralink has reported that the first brain-computer interface it implanted in a human patient experienced a problem. Some threads from the device retracted from the patient's brain tissue, reducing its performance.

Neuralink modified the system and says it has a solution, though it considered removing the implant. The company continues testing the technology as it works towards FDA approval.
