In this article LAZRVOLV.B-SEChesnot | Getty Images News | Getty ImagesVolvo is integrating Luminar Technologies' lidar system on the automaker's upcoming electric flagship SUV, the first major carmaker to integrate the technology as standard equipment on a vehicle. Luminar's new Iris lidar system, which is an advanced sensor that allows vehicles to "see" their environment better, will be standard on the SUV, the Swedish automaker and start-up Luminar announced Thursday. It will now define the next level of car safety," Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson said in a release. Luminar says its system, which will initially be used to enhance the vehicle's safety, will only cost companies about $1,000 per vehicle. Depending on when the vehicle is launched, it could be the first with lidar as standard equipment.

The decision by Volvo Cars to fold lidar sensors into the base price of its vehicle is a bet that customers will pay for the additional capability. "By having this hardware as standard, we can continuously improve safety features over the air and introduce advanced autonomous drive systems," Volvo Cars Chief Executive Hakan Samuelsson said in a statement. Volvo Cars' chief technology officer, Henrik Green, said cost is not the focus for the Swedish auto brand. Green said subsequent vehicles will add the lidar package as standard, and that this continues Volvo Cars' history of being first to standardize many safety features, including three-point seat belts and side-impact airbags. "You don't have an option package for airbags.

DETROIT – Ford Motor is losing its chief technology officer to Amazon, marking an ongoing talent battle between the automotive and technology industries. Ford confirmed Thursday that CTO Ken Washington, who joined Ford from Lockheed Martin in 2014, will be leaving the Detroit automaker effective July 16. He will join Amazon as vice president of software engineering in Sunnyvale, California, according to an internal employee memo provided by Ford. Washington's departure is a major blow for the automaker, which is accelerating billions of dollars in new investments for connected, electric and autonomous vehicles under a new turnaround plan by CEO Jim Farley. Jim Buczkowski, who has been responsible for research and design of electrical and electronic systems, will be taking on interim responsibility for Ford's research and advanced engineering team while a permanent successor for Washington is identified, according to the automaker.

As the U.S. job market recovers from the pandemic, some workers are feeling more empowered to prioritize their own well-being above their employer. Workplace leaders began predicting a mass exodus in early 2021, with one survey finding that one in four workers plans to quit their job after the pandemic. She went on an interviewing spree in May and, by early June, started working at a dog boarding and day care facility in Phoenix. While she was eager to care for the animals, Becker, 21, says the work environment was untenable. She spent the pandemic working remotely designing training materials for a mortgage company and embraced the new level of work-life balance.

Two days after Eric Adams emerged as the likely Democratic nominee for mayor of New York City, he made it clear that he would revamp New York’s approach to dealing with crime and suggested that other big cities and the national Democratic Party would be wise to follow suit. Speaking in the tones of a mayor-elect, Mr. Adams laid out a middle road between progressives and conservatives: Fight racism in policing, but step back from a progressive movement that has seen cities slash police budgets, ban police chokeholds and allow more people charged with crimes to be released without bail. On gun control, he called for changing the national focus from assault rifles — which capture attention for their use in mass shootings, especially in suburban schools — to handguns. They are the main weapons in shootings in cities from New York to Atlanta and Detroit, he said, but because most of the victims, like most of the shooters, are “Black and brown, we’ve decided it’s not an issue.”“If the Democratic Party fails to recognize what we did here in New York, they’re going to have a problem in the midterm elections, and they’re going to have a problem in the presidential election,” Mr. Adams said at a news conference outside Brooklyn Borough Hall.

The Republican-led Michigan Senate Oversight Committee rebutted voter fraud claims made by Donald Trump, debunking claims of malfeasance in the state's election last fall and affirming that Joe Biden was victorious, in a highly-anticipated report released Wednesday. "At this point, I feel confident to assert the results of the Michigan election are accurately represented by the certified and audited results." The report examined, point-by-point, other theories of election fraud promoted by Trump and his supporters. Last month, Trump targeted Michigan Senate Republicans for not doing enough to substantiate his baseless fraud claims. "Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start?"

WASHINGTON—President Biden is expected to lay out his crime-prevention strategy Wednesday amid a rise in gun violence in many cities, as Republicans seek to tie the increase in crime to calls for cuts to police departments. Mr. Biden will emphasize that state and local officials in areas experiencing surges in gun violence can use $350 billion in Covid-19 funding to hire more law-enforcement personnel, even if it raises the total number beyond its pre-pandemic level, officials said. They also can use that money to invest in programs that try to identify and mediate potentially violent conflicts, officials said. The administration will work with 14 cities, including Atlanta, Baltimore and Detroit, that are increasing investments in such programs, known as community violence intervention. The president is also expected to meet Wednesday with mayors, law-enforcement officials and gun violence prevention advocates to discuss the rise in crime.

Pendulum swingAbout half of the states with legal medical cannabis have explicit employment protections for registered medical cannabis patients, and states such as New York and Nevada have statutes that limit the firing of employees for recreational cannabis use. Caldwell has represented laboratories and drug testing industry members in litigation. Even the federal government has relaxed some policies toward certain employees' use of cannabis, Marijuana Moment has reported . While state cannabis laws, including measures specific to employment drug testing, have been a major driver of this private-sector shift, economics have played their part, too, Challenger said. The pay scale has to improve, he said, adding that he believes the automaker should seriously consider adjusting its drug testing policy in order to attract more workers.

Several airlines, including Southwest, blamed the delays on bad weather. Each of the nation’s major airlines faced significant delays on Sunday, but only American also had substantial cancellations, which affected about 6 percent of flights, according to FlightAware. Citing the bad weather, vendor labor shortages and the rapid rise in travel, American said it would cut back its schedule over the next few weeks to minimize last-minute disruptions. “Our focus this summer — and always — is on delivering for our customers no matter the circumstance,” the airline said in a statement. Most of the cuts are concentrated in the first half of the month, the airline said.

The union at the plant in the central city of Silao must hold the vote before Aug. 20, the Labor Ministry said in a statement. The law requires contract ratification votes nationwide to ensure workers are not bound to contracts that were signed behind their backs between companies and unions. Mexico's Labor Ministry on May 11 had ordered the GM union to hold a new vote within 30 days. GM workers in Silao are represented by the Miguel Trujillo Lopez union, which is affiliated with the Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM), one of Mexico's largest and oldest labor organizations.
