States are falling all over themselves to be chosen as the site for Tesla’s proposed $5 billion Gigafactoryto produce lithium ion batteries. California is competing with Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and the bidding for the factory, which could employ up to 6,500 people, is said to be up to $500 million.
Despite car and truck sales that motored past 16 million for the first time since 2007, recalls dominated the news for most of the year. General Motors GM 1.42% held center stage, dealing with cascading revelations about faulty ignition switches and recalling millions of vehicles. While GM opted for something approaching full disclosure of its missteps , publishing an report into company-wide fumbles, Japanese airbag maker Tanaka chose to stonewall. It left any remedies up to its beleaguered customers, notably Honda and Toyota. They are the ones who deal with the fallout of exploding safety devices that fatally fired shrapnel throughout the passenger compartment.

Why breakfast is important (and not just for kids)
Breakfast lovers, rejoice! Research indicates your morning nosh could not only support your weight loss efforts, but it could also improve other health markers. Studies have shown that regularly eating breakfast is associated with increased glycemic control — an important factor in the prevention and management of diabetes and its precursor, prediabetes.1 Eating breakfast is also linked to increased mental alertness — and who doesn’t need that, especially in the morning?1
Eating breakfast regularly has also been shown to reduce the risk of obesity and weight gain. For instance, a 2018 study conducted by the Mayo Clinic found that people who eat breakfast daily tend to gain less weight over time than those who eat breakfast irregularly or skip it altogether.2 What’s more, the researchers found that breakfast eaters were more likely to have a smaller waist circumference and less belly fat — also known as visceral fat — the kind that can be detrimental to your health.2
Meanwhile, figures such as Wang Jianlin, China’s richest man, have raised concerns about Chinese state-owned enterprises’ investments in Europe, arguing that they lack international management standards.

3. Ricotta breakfast toast
If you thought that getting sector over- and under-weights correct at the outset proved difficult, switching between them throughout the year was nearly impossible. A quantitative analyst from Nomura Securities explained to Barron’s in November that “industry leadership has been reversing from month-to-month at a rate unseen in decades of stock-market history. ‘Even if you’re picking the right stocks in a sector,’ he says, ‘things are moving around so much that your performance doesn’t persist.’”
The last leg of the year is set to be a busy one for initial public offerings on both sides of the Atlantic, with companies including Italy’s Pirelli, Alibaba-backed Best Logistics and video streaming platform Roku lining up to list.

Critics have been eager to point out that he is not so closely involved in new product development as his predecessor, and fails to elicit the same excitement when he takes to the stage to introduce them. But Mr Cook is aware of his shortcomings and has drawn on the worlds of fitness and fashion to assemble a new team of talents, including Angela Ahrendts, formerly of Burberry, and industrial designer Marc Newson.
American brands such as Chipotle, Texas Instruments and General Dynamics are on the list for the first time.

6. Overnight oats
There’s nothing simpler than overnight oats! Simply place ½ cup rolled oats, ½ cup milk of your choice, and fruit such as raspberries, chopped apple or mango chunks in a jar and refrigerate overnight — no cooking required! (If you opt for soft fruits, such as berries or mango, we recommend using frozen fruit to help keep them from getting too soggy.) For variety, try adding some nutmeg or vanilla extract, and top with a few unsalted pistachios or pumpkin seeds just before eating for a bit of crunch. (Or try our delicious Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal or our Blueberry & Oats Square for an even simpler breakfast to go!)

An odd assortment of S&P sectors led the market higher this year, with some strange bedfellows atop the leaderboard. Even if a manager had foreseen that the healthcare sector would gain 27% this year, would they have guessed that utilities would be in the No. 2 slot, with gains of 23%? Unlikely.
D'Aloisio's parents came to England from Australia. His father, Lou, has worked in commodities for BP and Morgan Stanley, while his mother, Diana, is a corporate lawyer who also serves as her son's contractual representative. They always knew D'Aloisio was an extremely inquisitive child. 'But he was our first, so we didn't think it was anything out of the ordinary,' says Diana. (D'Aloisio's brother, Matthew, is 14.) They stress that despite his impressive accomplishments, he remains a normal kid. Or at least as normal as a kid can be when he's making offhand references to Markov models and stochastic processes. 'He still goes out on weekends, still goes to parties,' says Diana. 'He's got a girlfriend. All the things you do at 17.'

Over at Huffington Post Mark Gongloff warns: That 'dramatic downgrade of U.S. economic growth in the first quarter revealed the economy's lingering weakness, exposed the folly of Washington's austerity obsession and slapped the Federal Reserve's newfound optimism right in the face.'

But we are going to get a taste of the new world order when the WTO’s members gather for its biennial ministerial in Buenos Aires in December.
