Dec 4 (Reuters) - Investors including Saudi Arabia's crown prince and a U.S. private-equity firm run by a former Barclays CEO have shown interest in investing $1 billion or more in Credit Suisse's (CSGN.S) new investment banking unit, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday. Credit Suisse did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Seeking to restore vigor to a business that has been languishing, Credit Suisse in October said that it will reshape its investment bank by resurrecting the First Boston brand. Credit Suisse's history with the First Boston brand dates to 1978 when the pair linked up to operate in the London bond market. Some bankers and investors have expressed scepticism over its ability to regain its past glory in a shrinking market.
Ford had to literally tear down the walls of its factory to cope with demand for the electric F-150. "That surprised us – I think it surprised a lot in the industry, how ready people already were for electric vehicles," says Darren Palmer, who heads up Ford's electric vehicle (EV) program. Darren Palmer speaks with customers in front of a Ford F-150 Lightning. Despite recently committing $50 billion to its EV program over the next four years, the success of an electric F-150 was never certain. The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat.
DUBAI, Dec 4 (Reuters) - An Egyptian-American national detained while visiting the United Arab Emirates fears he will be extradited to Egypt for criticising authorities there ahead of the country hosting the COP27 climate conference last month, his fiance said on Sunday. The UAE, a close ally of Egypt, arrested Sherif Osman, who resides in the United States, on Nov. 6 at the request of an Arab League entity responsible for coordinating law enforcement and security matters, a UAE official confirmed to Reuters on Thursday. The United States was aware of Osman's arrest in Dubai, a U.S. State Department spokesperson said on Thursday, and was "watching his case closely and providing appropriate consular support". Osman's fiance said she had travelled to the UAE with him to meet his sister, who lives in Dubai, and his mother who had planned to visit from Egypt. The UAE official had said the UAE "strictly adheres to all internationally accepted standards" in detention cases including regular consular access and legal council.
During a two-hour long Twitter Spaces session, Musk said a second “Twitter Files” drop will again involve Taibbi, along with journalist Bari Weiss, but did not give an exact date for when that would be released. It showed employees on several Twitter teams debating over whether to restrict the article under the company’s hacked materials policy, weeks before the 2020 election. Musk also said Twitter should program and monetize native long audio and video posting. He is quoted as saying that some of the investment may have been sold before Twitter went private in October, but he wasn’t sure. Musk also said that Twitter will roll out its new account verifications within the next week, which had been halted.
Lara Trump, Eric Trump's wife, will no longer be a paid contributor for Fox News, per the Los Angeles Times. The decision was made after former President Donald Trump announced his 2024 presidential bid. In a statement provided to Insider, a Fox News spokesperson said: "We appreciate Lara's valuable contributions across FOX News Media programming." The network decided that Lara Trump is directly connected to her father-in-law's campaign, the Los Angeles Times said. There is a precedent for such decisions; Sarah Huckabee Sanders had her paid contributor deal terminated when she announced she was running for governor of Arkansas.
BUCKEYE, Ariz.—Earth movers were grading the scraped desert in this city 40 miles west of Phoenix one day last month in preparation for construction of the first 1,100 homes in a master-planned community called Teravalis. Developer Howard Hughes Corp. last year spent $600 million to buy 37,000 acres in a valley flanked by two mountain ranges. It plans to build 100,000 homes over the next half-century, along with 55 million square feet of offices and other commercial real estate—the largest such project in state history, according to the developer.
Emerson Moser , 46, of Cincinnati, general counsel for Meridian Bioscience, on his 2010 Dodge Viper ACR, as told to A.J. My dad was a General Motors engineer, and we spent a lot of time going to racetracks and car shows. When I was in college at Purdue in the 1990s, I was walking across campus one day when I saw a Dodge Viper on display in the Engineering Mall. I thought: This is the coolest, most exotic American car I have ever seen. It had a V-10 engine partially developed by Lamborghini.
Here’s a roundup of the month’s most noteworthy movies and TV shows, as covered by The Wall Street Journal’s critics. After the remake of “Murder on the Orient Express” revived the murder mystery in 2017, two years later “Knives Out” revived the subgenre of the comic whodunit best exemplified by such ’70s Peter Falk movies as “The Cheap Detective” and “Murder by Death.” When it comes to comedy, Daniel Craig is no Peter Falk, and in the second “Knives Out” movie, the biggest mystery remains, “Why is Daniel Craig’s Southern accent so terrible?” I half-expected the explanation to be that Mr. Craig’s detective Benoit Blanc is actually a suave English spy in disguise. Still, the nattily attired Blanc is not only a detective dandy, he’s a dandy detective, and “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” is breezy holiday entertainment.
Apple is increasing its efforts to shift production outside of China, according to the Wall Street Journal. Production at factories like Foxconn has taken a massive hit amid riots over zero-Covid policies. Shifting production will likely be difficult in the current global economic climate, sources told WSJ. In November, the area known as "iPhone City" erupted into violent protests among employees over withheld pay and strict zero-Covid policies that prompted a lockdown in Zhengzhou. The protests, which coincided with the start of the holiday shopping season in the US, have led to significant supply chain issues and shortages of Apple iPhone products.
Trian calls itself a "constructivist," implying a more friendly activist investor.

In this situation, Trian seems to be looking for a board seat and is urging Disney to make operational improvements and reduce costs.

Dec 2 (Reuters) - United Airlines Inc (UAL.O) is close to reaching a deal with Boeing (BA.N) to order dozens of the planemaker's 787 Dreamliner jets, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The highly anticipated meeting comes ahead of potentially disruptive sanctions on Russian oil, weakening crude demand in China and mounting fears of a recession. Concern that an outright ban on Russian crude imports could send oil prices soaring, however, prompted the G-7 to consider a price cap on the amount it will pay for Russian oil. "The other factor OPEC will need to consider is indeed the price cap," Galimberti said. The Kremlin has previously warned that any attempt to impose a price cap on Russian oil will cause more harm than good. The energy alliance recently hinted it could impose deeper output cuts to spur a recovery in crude prices.
