Elon Musk  has built an empire through innovation in electric cars, solar power and space technology. However, it looks like his success has been supported by roughly $4.9 billion in government subsidies. According to data compiled by the Los Angeles Times , Musk’s startups have taken advantage of a variety of government incentives over the years, such as: grants, tax breaks, factory construction, discounted loans and environmental tax credits–all of which have helped keep companies like Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX afloat.

Comments Off on The Flatiron Building is the next model in Lego Architecture line

The Flatiron Building in New York City is an iconic landmark that has been at the corner of Broadway and Fifth Avenue for over 100 years. Now, LEGO  has taken the Flatiron and turned it into a buildable, affordable LEGO model . While not quite as refined and detailed as the original, this model has the classic Flatiron shape while lacking some of the windows and other features. Unlike some LEGO Architecture sets, like Fallingwater which retails around $135 and the Imperial Hotel at $79, this set is only $40 and comes with a mere 471 pieces, as well as a nameplate and background information on the building.
