Jeff Seidel Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Oct 10, 2018 KENORA, Ontario – Joe Murphy hunches over, unable to speak, unable to respond. His eyes float to the back of his head. His forehead creases with wrinkles. Frozen in place. Still strong and athletic, the muscles in his arms tense. His hands contort, his fingers curl and lock in place, becoming rigid as a brick. Down the right side of his neck, there is an old scar, near the jugular, where he says he was knifed. Murphy, who was the No. 1 overall pick by the Detroit Red Wings in 1986, starts mumbling under his breath and rocks back and forth. His head is nearly bald, his face weathered, like an old piece of wood that was forgotten and left outside. He springs up, pulls out a bungee cord and whips it over his head, the metal hook whizzing through the air, … [Read more...] about Finding Joe Murphy: How Red Wings’ No. 1 pick became homeless

The only two choices when it comes to a $50,000-$60,000 premium brand all electric car are the BMW i3 and the Tesla Model 3. BMW launched their all-electric BMW i3 in 2014, winning multiple green awards for their EV’s eco-friendly lightweight construction, production methods and use of sustainable materials.

Waymo, the self-driving car spinoff of Google, made a big splash last week by announcing it struck a deal with Fiat Chrysler to add 62,000 Chrysler Pacficia hybrid minivans to its upcoming fleet of autonomous taxis. Turns out, the move could have a big impact not only on Waymo’s bottom line but also potential buyers of electric cars in years to come, too. It appears that nothing’s stopping the company from seeking as much as $465 million in federal tax credits as a result of the order, according to experts who spoke to Jalopnik. Even if Waymo decides against claiming the electric vehicle tax credit—worth up to $7,500 per car—on its annual returns, the Pacifica order will impact the ability of future car buyers to purchase a FCA electric or hybrid model at a more affordable price, experts said. The Pacifica order represents more than 30 percent of the 200,000 vehicle cap set under federal regulators for the tax credit; once a manufacturer hits that ceiling, the … [Read more...] about Google’s Mass-Purchase Of Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids Could Mean $465 Million In Federal Tax Credits
