Trump: Ford to announce 'major' Michigan investment

Ford Motor is expected Tuesday to announce a "major investment" in three Michigan factories, President Trump said on Twitter.

The automaker declined to comment.

But the announcement is believed to be connected in part to its recent decision to revive the Ford Bronco sport-utility vehicle and Ford Ranger mid-size pickup truck.

Ford CEO Mark Fields told USA TODAY in January that the company would make both vehicles at its assembly plant in Wayne, Mich., to replace production of the Focus sedan, which is moving to Mexico, and preserve 3,600 jobs.

Uber slams on the brakes, stops self-driving car tests | ZDNet

Uber has suspended autonomous car tests in the US following an incident in which one of its self-driving cars was involved in a collision in Tempe, Arizona.

The ride-hailing service's tests in both Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have been stopped following the high-impact crash, in which photos on Twitter reveal an Uber car on its side while another vehicle is behind, laden with dents, scratches, and smashed windows.

As reported by Bloomberg, the vehicle involved in the collision is a self-driving SUV, one of a fleet being tested by Uber.

An Uber spokesperson confirmed the crash, saying that tests have been paused while the ride-hailing service completes an investigation into the situation.


Trump trade doubts send dollar, shares tumbling | Reuters

The dollar and share prices tumbled on Monday, as investors worried that U.S. President Donald Trump's defeat over healthcare reform foreshadowed difficulties delivering other key campaign promises, in particular tax cuts and spending.

Trump's failure to rally enough support from his own Republican party to repeal and replace Obamacare spurred a rush to safe haven assets such as gold XAU=, the Japanese yen JPY= and the Swiss franc CHF=.

So-called "Trumpflation trades" - bets that Trump's pro-business policies would stoke growth and inflation in the U.S. and global economies, boosting assets such as commodities - came under heavy selling pressure.

The dollar, whose index had surged more than 6 percent in the aftermath of Trump's election to hit 14-year highs at the start of 2017, slipped to its lowest since Nov. 11, two days after the results of the presidential vote .DXY.


Amazon eyes delivering on grocery sales - The Blade

“Very wasteful” isn’t a phrase usually associated with Inc., which is so cost-conscious it once removed the light bulbs from its cafeteria’s vending machines. But after spending several months analyzing the online retailer’s grocery-shipping hubs back in 2014, that’s exactly how a mechanical engineering student described its approach to selling bananas.

Workers at Amazon Fresh, its grocery-delivery business, threw away about a third of the bananas it purchased because the service only sold the fruit in bunches of five, the student said. Employees trimmed each bunch down to size and chucked the excess.


Trucking IPO will net Schneider family $230 million
