Elon Musk 'sleeping' in Tesla factory in attempt to fix Model 3 delays

The CEO is still trying to prove that Tesla has what it takes to be a true mass-production company
Tesla’s Model 3 production “hell” continues.
Elon Musk, in a testy Twitter exchange, said he is “back to sleeping at the factory” while trying to fix production delays with the Model 3 electric car. It’s a move reminiscent of Tesla’s last vehicle launch—the Model X—when Mr Musk famously kept a sleeping bag near the production line so he could immediately address any hiccups.
“Car biz is hell,” Mr Musk said.

But just a few years later, she found herself reversing course, after rigorous clinical trials found neither vitamin E nor folic acid supplements did anything to protect the heart. Even worse, studies linked high-dose vitamin E to a higher risk of heart failure, prostate cancer and death from any cause.
Dr. Gulati told her father he “might want to stop taking” the vitamins.
