Melissa Nann Burke The Detroit News Published 5:31 PM EST Jan 7, 2019 Washington — U.S. Coast Guard workers who could soon miss their next paycheck started ice-breaking operations in the Great Lakes on Monday in response to the spread of ice in the commercial ports of the St. Mary’s River and western Lake Superior. Coast Guard staff are among an estimated 6,000 federal employees in Michigan going without pay or furloughed as a result of the partial shutdown affecting roughly a fourth of the federal government. Michigan had nearly 53,000 federal employees, including Postal Service workers, as of June 2017, according to Governing magazine.

Is Jailed Supported by ByJack Ewing, Motoko Rich and Liz Alderman Dec. 13, 2018 During the nearly two decades he dominated the alliance of Renault and Nissan, Carlos Ghosn achieved something of a miracle in the auto world.

Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press Published 8:23 PM EST Nov 19, 2018 It took 10 games and a coaching change, but the Detroit Lions’ struggling special teams might finally be turning a corner. The Lions had their best day in punt coverage all season in Sunday’s win over the Carolina Panthers, when Sam Martin dropped three of his six punts inside the 10-yard line and the Lions dominated the field-position battle. “You can’t run from it,” special teams ace Charles Washington said. “It’s apparent what we’ve been doing on special teams and it hasn’t been the best, so we all come in, just made a pact to get things turned around and be better.” The Lions had just one special-teams penalty Sunday, when they purposely took a delay of game after lining up for a 58-yard field-goal try, and Carolina’s average starting field position was inside its own 17-yard line.

In a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times on Thursday, CEO Elon Musk admitted to being spread thin, having the most difficult and painful year in his career, and to hastily dashing off a market-moving tweet in his car on the way to the airport. As pressure mounts on Tesla and Musk to make the company profitable in time to pay down a mountain of looming debt, the CEO’s public communications in recent months have become increasingly hasty, shrill, sometimes petty, and even juvenile. 2017 Tesla Model 3, in photo tweeted by Elon Musk on July 9, 2017 Musk has had to apologize several times for hastily lashing out at critics, including cutting off an investor on the company’s June quarterly earnings call who was asking a question about the … [Read more...] about Opinion: Tesla’s CEO needs help, but will he take it?
