(video link) DETROIT—The annual North American International Auto Show, unlike most similar events in the US, is remarkably well attended by automotive suppliers as well as major OEMs like Bosch. The tier one supplier used the latest show to debut its new eAxle, a compact unit that's modular and scalable in design. As you'll see in the video, the eAxle really is a lot more compact than combining the company's current individual systems together. "We can realize five-to-ten percent efficiency over standalone components when we move to an integrated unit," explained Bosch's Jon Poponea. Look in an electric vehicle on the roads right now, and you'll probably see a whole bunch of different components, all connected with thick orange-wrapped leads.

The winter sun rose fast over a California morning, peeking above the San Gabriel mountain range, and bringing sunlight to the City of Angels. It was Sunday February 8th 2015 the day of the 57th annual Grammy® Awards. Eileen Sherman was attending the Grammy® Awards that day, and had an appointment that morning to meet Grant Maloy Smith , (another voting member of Grammy) in the lobby of The Marriott hotel in downtown LA. So, at the arranged time, dressed in their "red carpet finest" Grant and Eileen met for the very first time. In Eileen's own words. "At first, I couldn't even find Grant because of the "glamorous mob scene" in the lobby, but then I saw the "cowboy hat." I went over to him, extended my hand, and said, "I'm Eileen Sherman. I have this idea." I don't think I had completed my second sentence, when Grant said, "I'm In." (It wasn't until much later that I learned, he had the same idea.

Additional data from the survey, still to be analyzed, seem consistent with other polls showing a significantly higher percentage of 18-34 year-olds voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. These results suggest a generational divide in both dreaming and politics: Younger people are typically more engaged with their dreams and less supportive of Donald Trump's political movement, compared to older people who tend to be less engaged with their dreams and more supportive of the new regime. That may be a mere coincidence, of course. It may also signal a real difference in how people of various ages experience the world in waking and in dreaming. I will pursue a more detailed analysis of the raw, unweighted data gathered in this survey over the coming months, and I plan to present the complete findings in June at the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams.

All the evidence says that openness promotes trust and loyalty, rather than burdening the team. Being open is a two-way street, requiring active listening, inclusion, and responsiveness. Practice employee caring and empathy. Actions speak louder than words in building real rather than artificial relationships with the people around you at work. Caring and empathy don't require tolerating a lack of respect or inability to perform. In fact, just the opposite is true - recognizing problems and doing the right thing are the ultimate caring. Invest in employees' career and personal growth. Leaders who show real interest and commitment to their employees as "whole persons" quickly generate trust and loyalty. Everyone wants feedback on their performance, new career options, and work-life balance guidance. This requires leader effort daily - annual reviews are not the answer.

EARLY in the new millennium Elijah Wood was the darling of Hollywood as the star of The Lord of the Rings, one of the biggest movie series of all time. Yet fans of Peter Jackson's films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy novelscombined budget, US$283 million – would be forgiven for being unable to name a single movie he has made since. The 35-year-old is that rare breed of film star – an actor who chose to chase the scripts rather than the big paydays after his early success. "Making 'Rings' was like making the world's largest independent film in a way, the spirit of it, and that's kind of what I connect to," he told AFP at the annual Sundance Film Festival in the mountains of Utah. "Ultimately I just want to be a part of great storytelling, and it sort of doesn't matter, the scale." Wood, a Sundance regular, has returned to the ski resort of Park City for his latest movie, I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore, said to be the only festival entrant with a grammatical sentence as its title.

Soros decided to publicly reveal his attitude towards American President Donald Trump during the World Economic Forum in Davos. Notorious globalist billionaire George Soros has gone on the record threatening to “take down President Trump” and promising an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the New World Order are making the necessary preparations to completely and utterly obliterate every single Trump plan. Speaking to a packed audience at his annual dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos , Soros warned large multinational corporations to hold off from doing any business in the United States until he’s ended Trump’s presidency – or else face the consequences. Asked what advice he would give to businesses preparing for the impact of the new presidency, he said “I’d keep as far away from it as I can“.
