Corporate giants once had all-powerful chiefs with domains to match. But activist investors and technological change are remaking the executive suite.

- Trump to mayor of sinking island: Don't worry about sea level rise
By Andrew Freedman - Wednesday Jun 14, 2017
Sea level rise caused by global warming is threatening the existence of the tiny community of Tangier Island, Virginia, located in Chesapeake Bay.
Yet a CNN report on the town's plight appears to have prompted President Donald Trump to call the town's mayor to assure him that his town will not succumb to rising seas by the middle of this century, despite what scientists predict.
Instead, Trump told mayor James “Ooker” Eskridge in a phone call on Monday that residents of Tangier Island have nothing to fear when it comes to rising sea levels.More about Science, Global Warming, Donald Trump, Paris Agreement, and Sea Level Rise
- Hummer factory gets second life making electric cars
By Maria Gallucci - Thursday Jun 22, 2017
A U.S. auto plant that once made giant gas-guzzlers will now make cars that don't need gas at all.
AM General, which previously built the Hummer H2, sold its factory in South Bend, Indiana to the electric carmaker SF Motors, both firms announced Thursday.
SF Motors will pay $110 million to produce "intelligent electric vehicles," according to publicly available filings. It will spend another $30 million to upgrade the 700,000-square-foot commercial assembly plant.
The company didn't elaborate further on its plans for the factory, such as how many cars it will produce annually or what types of smart driving or electric-powertrain technologies they'll use. But executives said the arrangement will preserve about 430 U.S. auto worker jobs that were at risk of disappearing. Read more...More about Science, China, Tesla, Climate Change, and Automobiles
- The latest Tesla challenger approaches the starting line, and it looks kinda sketchy
By Brett Williams - Monday Jun 12, 2017
There will soon be a new player in the electric car space, with a big name backing it — but the company has a lot to prove before it can legitimately threaten Tesla.
Renowned auto designer Henrik Fisker just released the first full-body images of his EMotion autonomous electric car, along with some new spec details, giving the world its first IRL look at the latest challenger to Tesla's reign as the top all-electric luxury vehicle on the market.
EMotion, which was first announced last year by Fisker's eponymous company, boasts some impressive specs and a sleek design that's sure to turn heads. The pre-release materials claim the car will be the "most advanced" electric vehicle ever made, with a proprietary lithium-ion battery that can charge for 100 miles' worth of juice in just nine minutes and provide a massive 400-mile-plus range at full power. That's at least 65 more miles than Tesla's top-level Model S 100D sedan, if you're keeping track. Read more...More about Tesla, Electric Vehicles, Fisker, Tech, and Energy

- Friendly island doggo followed a street view mapper and photobombed all his shots
By Yi Shu Ng - Friday Jun 16, 2017
It's not easy carrying a street view camera backpack around, but we imagine it's much better with a fluffy doggo following you the whole time.
In these pictures of a Jukdo, a small idyllic island in South Korea, you can see the friendly dog is in nearly all of the pictures.
The pictures, on Korean maps provider Daum, were captured in July 2010 on foot.
If the pictures look empty, it's probably because it has few residents. A 2004 census noted that only a family of three was living there. Read more...More about Travel, South Korea, Dog, Street View, and Doggy
