Diplomatic tension between Canada and Saudi Arabia has escalated this past week after a group of Canadian civil rights activists were arrested in the country.

Luckily enough, Saudi officials published a statement confirming that the oil trade between the two nations will be left untouched.
Elon Musk has been writing headlines all week after a questionable tweet. After Musk tweeted saying he was considering taking Tesla off the exchange and that he had “secured funding,” the company shares surged by 11 percent.
