Experts say Tesla board may have too many ties to CEO Musk

For years, Tesla's board remained almost invisible, staying behind the curtain as superstar Chairman and CEO Elon Musk guided the electric car maker to huge stock price increases. Now, given Musk's recent questionable behavior, experts say it's time for the board to step onstage and take action on the company's leadership.

Not the Satanic mills: small-scale clothes making catches on

LONDON (AP) — Claudio Belotti knows he cut the denim that became the jeans Meghan Markle wore on one of her first outings as the fiancee of Britain's Prince Harry. That's because he cuts all of the fabric for Hiut Denim Co., a seven-year-old company that makes jeans in Cardigan, Wales.

Frustration rules as Venezuela unveils new currency

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Saul Jimenez just wanted to buy bread from his neighborhood bakery in Venezuela's capital on Monday. It did not go well. Banks and most other businesses were closed for the day as Venezuela launched a series of dramatic economic reforms, beginning with the release of a currency with five fewer zeros in a bid to tame soaring inflation. Rampant inflation means it would take a fistful of bills to pay for a loaf of bread, so many Venezuelans like Jimenez rely on bank cards. But with banks closed to reset their systems for the change, Jimenez's cards wouldn't work — in a scene that played out across Caracas. "It wasn't just mine. Others' didn't work either," said the attorney, who...
