Los Angeles Times cited by Google for "annoying" ads, Faraday Future HR vice president departs, and Aerojet Rocketdyne’s AR1 rocket research costs about $228 million.
Tronc-owned Los Angeles Times was cited as a website with "annoying" advertisements by a Google report, reports Ad Age. The website is one of roughly a thousand online publishers that are set to receive an email from Google warning them that they are showing “highly annoying, misleading or harmful” ads. The notice is intended to give the publishers a chance to change their ad formats ahead of Google’s plans to block “annoying” ads in its popular Chrome browser starting early next year.
Faraday Future’s Vice President of Human Resources, Alan Cherry, who was part of the original leadership team that founded the electric car startup back in 2014, has departed the company, reports The Verge. It’s not clear specifically where he will be going, though the company said he will have a new role at a non-automotive industry startup.
Research and development costs for the AR1 rocket from the program’s inception through June 30 have reached about $228 million, according to recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing by Aerojet Rocketdyne, reports Space News. The Air Force thus far has funded about $135.3 million of the R&D costs and United Launch Alliance has funded about $9.2 million, with Aerojet Rocketdyne’s costs reaching about $51.8 million.
