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. He managed to get the French and Japanese companies to act as one entity so both could prosper in an industry where scale is everything. Now that Mr. Ghosn is in a Tokyo jail, and both he and Nissan face criminal charges of illegally underreporting his income, the flaws in that structure have become obvious. Mr. Ghosn’s fall has left the unlikely Franco-Japanese union in limbo and revealed how much of its success revolved around his forceful personality.

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. Undrafted rookie Mike Ford, in his first game with the Lions, … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions make a change, special teams have big game
'Revenge of the Electric Car' premiere: Elon Musk arrives in a Tesla RoadsterJust as Tesla is beginning to straighten out manufacturing problems with its Model 3, the executive suite seems in the midst of a nuclear meltdown. 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?
Daniel Howes The Detroit News Published 3:23 p.m. UTC Jun 8, 2018 More than 3,000 delegates and members of the United Auto Workers are set to descend on Cobo Center next week for a quadrennial rite: anointing a new slate of leaders. The difference this year, amid record profitability for Detroit’s automakers and near-record profit-sharing payouts, is a stark break from the past. The union’s three joint-training centers, each funded by corporate dollars, remain under a federal corruption investigation that already has claimed convictions and plea agreements. It's credited with forcing the early retirement of at least one sitting vice president, Norwood Jewell, who did not complete his term after the feds raided his home. It forced another retired vice president, Joe Ashton, to resign abruptly from General Motors Co.’s board of directors. And Secretary-Treasurer Gary Casteel, a potential contender for the president's job who was renominated last … [Read more...] about Howes: As delegates arrive in Detroit, federal corruption probe weighs on UAW
