"I just want to make sure that people on the lines know that I'll stand shoulder to shoulder with them and support them every way I can," Ford said Monday. "We're putting up a tremendous amount of money, so are the feds. Now, we have to talk to Stellantis." Ford, who wants to see Stellantis twin its

Work is continuing on the definitive agreements." Despite the

(AP) — Jill Biden on Sunday returned to the South Carolina Baptist church where she says she began to repair her relationship with God following her son's death from brain cancer six years ago.

That might be good for Sweden's emissions targets, but not such good news for the rest of the planet.
