Election officials who have been harassed and threatened in the wake of the election are pushing back against President Donald Trump’s repeated false claims that the election was stolen from him and urging party leaders to do something. Gabriel Sterling, a Republican official in the Georgia Secretary of State's office, spent the week condemning election fraud claims, which he said have incited death threats, intimidation, and harassment. But election officials across the country have said they are paying a personal price for their involvement in the democratic process. "Stand up for the truth," she urged federal and state officials. In Michigan, where Biden beat Trump by over more than 154,000 votes, the Detroit News reported that a self-proclaimed Trump supporter interrupted a Zoom meeting and threatened to rape the mothers of election officials.

Magna International is an $18 billion auto industry giant that flies largely under the radar. Magna is in a unique position to seize opportunities in all the industry's growth areas: electrification, autonomy, and connectivity. After three decades as CEO of Magna International, the Canada-based auto giant that's largely invisible to those outside the car business, Don Walker is stepping down. Early in his time with Magna, Walker had to deal with a fundamental challenge that would set the company up for an expansive future — and pave his way to the c-suite. It could be a serious consideration, as Kotagiri said that 25% of the business by 2030 would be electric.

(Reuters) - A federal judge in Michigan has declined to reprimand President Donald Trump’s campaign for submitting a court document that opposing lawyers said was purposefully misleading. REUTERS/Yuri GripasIn a four-page order issued on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Janet Neff said she would not strike the disputed document from the court record. Lawyers for the city of Detroit had asked Neff to strike the document as a way of sanctioning Trump’s campaign. Detroit’s lawyers said on Nov. 19 that the campaign included “impertinent and false language” in the filing. “With the filing of its motion, the City of Detroit’s factual position is part of the court record, and the Court, in its discretion, declines to impose the requested sanction,” Neff wrote.

From 2016 to 2020, Hetherington argued in an email,there was no marked increase in the percentage of nonwhite voters. The key factor in this shift among white voters, Hetherington contended, was a major change in “the mix of urban, suburban, and rural voters” who turned out in 2020. This did not happen becauserural Georgia voters stayed home. Biden was more successful than Clinton in stanching the Democrats’ bleeding in rural, white areas, especially in Pennsylvania where it mattered a lot. Democratic Party affiliates, on the other hand, are increasingly organized around the counternarrative to Trumpism.

Countries such as Britain, Canada, France, Iceland, and Sweden have all proposed some sort of emission-free vehicle legislation for the coming years. California is thus allowed to set much stricter emission standards, meaning a car that passes emissions in Missouri might not pass in California. Currently, there are 12 states — plus the District of Columbia — that use the California standards, including Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts. The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is the automaker's first EV in the US that's built on its new MEB platform.

Ford's November sales down 21% due to F-150 pickup supply and production
  + stars: | 2020-12-02 | by ( Michael Wayland | ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
Tight inventory levels of Ford Motor's F-150 pickup due to pandemic-related plant shutdowns earlier this year and production starting for a redesigned model led to a 20.9% decrease in the automaker's sales in November, the company said Wednesday. The Detroit automaker reported sales of the popular full-size pickup were nearly cut in half – down 45.9% – compared with November 2019. That includes a 27.2% decrease in sales of its F-Series pickups, including the F-150 and other larger variants of the vehicle. Plants were forced to close for roughly two months during the second quarter during the first surge of Covid-19 cases. Automakers have been running plants that produce the vehicles nearly around the clock to refill dealer inventories.

He expected to see some lower-than-usual scores when his third grade math students took the MAP assessment this year, but he didn’t expect to see that so many of them were half a grade level behind. The exam can affect whether poor-performing students advance to the next grade, and scores are used to evaluate teachers and grade schools.

"I don't think you're going to have people coming back to the office 100% of the time the way that they did before," Jassy told CNBC's Jon Fortt. "I think there's going to be some type of hybrid model and I think it will probably differ depending on your job function." Amazon has signaled during the coronavirus pandemic that it expects office-based work to return in the near future. Amazon told staff who can work remotely to do so through June 2021.

Gretchen Whitmer has put a pause on indoor dining in the state until Dec. 8. Joe Vicari, owner of Vicari Restaurant Group, penned a letter asking fellow Michigan restaurant owners to defy Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's pause on indoor dining if she continues it past December 8. Since the pause on indoor dining, the state has given out fines and revoke liquor licenses, according to Eater Detroit. As colder weather begins to settle in some states, restaurants have turned to enclosed outdoor dining that may actually be riskier than indoor dining in some situations.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,” Mr. Barr said. The move raised expectations that Mr. Trump will bestow clemency on other associates in his final weeks in office. On the afternoon of Dec. 11, Mr. Trump is hosting a party for the West Wing staff and their families. “Good,” Mr. Biden replied to a shouted query about how he was feeling, as he arrived at The Queen theater to deliver remarks.

American Airlines and United Airlines are pausing plans to operate nonstop flights to Shanghai from the U.S. following reports of lengthy waits facing airline crews upon arrival, limited local accommodations and restrictions on their movement in the country, according to people familiar with the matter. Last month, American resumed China service with flights between Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and Shanghai with a stop in Seoul. United, for its part, said it has added a stop in Seoul on its San Francisco-Shanghai service. Delta Air Lines plans to offer nonstop flights to Shanghai from Seattle and Detroit starting this week. "Delta has shared with us their plan and the logistics surrounding the initiation of nonstop service to Shanghai," Delta's pilots' union, the Air Line Pilots Association, said in a statement.

As part of the new agreement, GM will provide the Phoenix-based company with hydrogen fuel-cell technology to power Nikola planned heavy-duty trucks. The deal abandons a plan to have GM produce Nikola Badger pickup trucks, however, and the Detroit automaker will no longer get a $2 billion equity stake in the startup. GM would not only have provided its ally with both battery and hydrogen fuel-cell technology, but also assemble the new Nikola Badger pickup using the same underlying platform as the all-electric GMC Hummer truck. While the new agreement could mean the Nikola Badger pickup is all but dead, Nikola could choose to find another partner willing to work on a version of the truck. For now, GM and Nikola will focus on the core hydrogen technology that will power Nikola’s Class 7 and Class 8 semis.

However, the deal came into question after a short seller attacked Nikola as a fraud, something the company denied. The new deal, a non-binding memorandum of understanding, is subject to negotiation and a definitive deal, Nikola and GM said in separate statements. Under the new agreement, GM will supply its fuel-cell system for Nikola’s Class 7 and Class 8 commercial semi-trucks, Nikola said. The companies are also discussing Nikola’s potential use of GM’s Ultium electric battery system in its commercial trailers.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoMost of the major S&P 500 sectors fell, with the energy index leading losses, tracking a drop in crude prices. The S&P 500 technology index rose, thanks to a rise in Apple Inc shares. IHS Markit topped gains on the S&P 500 after data giant S&P Global agreed to buy the financial information provider in a $44 billion deal that would be the biggest corporate acquisition of 2020. Unofficially, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 265.91 points, or 0.89%, to 29,644.46, the S&P 500 lost 16.5 points, or 0.45%, to 3,621.85 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 7.11 points, or 0.06%, to 12,198.74.
