Clemantine Wamariya, author of “The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After,” written with Elizabeth Weil (Julia Zave) It was a quintessential “Oprah” moment. In May 2006, Clemantine Wamariya, an 18-year-old refugee from Rwanda, sat in the studio audience, one of 50 winners of a national high school essay contest. As her host listened, an emotional Clemantine explained that she had been searching for her parents since she was 6, when war separated Clemantine and her older sister, Claire, from the rest of their family. The sisters had spent the next six years on the run, wandering through seven countries, dodging bullets, suffering illness and living in refugee camps before landing in the United States, empty-handed, in 2000. “So, Clemantine,” Oprah asked. “Before you left Africa, did you ever find your parents?” Clemantine knew they were alive but had not found them. But guess who had? Moments later, a curtain … [Read more...] about A moment on ‘Oprah’ made her a human rights symbol. She wants to be more than that.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know. 1st Gear: Volkswagen’s Likely New Head Is Cool As A Cucumber Sources at Volkswagen have indicated that Volkswagen Brand Chief Herbert Diess is likely to replace Matthias Müller as chief executive of the wider Volkswagen Group, reports Reuters. Müller’s contract runs through 2020, but VW has been undergoing a major management shake-up where even Müller isn’t safe.

Diess is no stranger to handling controversy, Bloomberg notes, as he’s weathered a standoff with Volkswagen’s labor unions over cost cuts already in his time at Volkswagen: But Diess, a lanky, cool-headed Bavarian, never got ruffled and ultimately secured a landmark deal that paved the … [Read more...] about Volkswagen’s Apparent New Boss Is No Stranger To Controversy
Australian grand prix organisers say they are open to tweaking the layout of the Melbourne circuit. Australian Grand Prix Corporation chief Andrew Westacott’s comments come after teams, drivers and fans complained about the lack of overtaking last weekend in the 2018 season opener. “It’s an awesome circuit but so hard to overtake even with the extra DRS,” said Lewis Hamilton. Max Verstappen was even more blunt, saying that as a TV spectator he would have changed channel. But Liberty sporting boss Ross Brawn warned that the problems will not be comprehensively fixed until 2021, when F1 can mandate fundamentally different cars. “Until we take a structured approach to the problem, we won’t really make any progress,” he said. So it may be down to the circuits to change instead. That may be difficult at places like Melbourne’s Albert Park, which weaves around a lake and in between features like sports fields. “I think the layout will be … [Read more...] about Melbourne open to tweaking F1 circuit
