Apple supplier Foxconn halts EV project with China`s Byton - Nikkei

Ken Notes: Like computers in the 80`s, EV`s will be a tough market, remember Compaq and even apple made the Lisa and the Newton. Lets get Foxconn in the dirt asap as the market shakes out. The good news is that Foxconn has a lot of irons in the fire including including Fisker, China`s Byton and Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, and Stellantis NV`s Fiat Chrysler. One or two should make it to market and succeed.

Rural policymakers, leaders look for long term answers for economic growth

Ken Notes: There is a lot of potential but we need to be creative and remember what we do best. Factory farms are replacing our family operations, we have been slow to embrace organics and farm to table, our grads are leaving the state not to mention the rural communities they came from. We are only scratching the surface of apprenticeship and school to work options. We do not have any real rural entrepreneurial programs or rural co-working space or mentorship programs. We believe houses can not be modular and must be 2400 sq feet. There are few shared community amenities and no arts, theatre, or gathering spaces. Our state parks are full yet we are not building more. Finally we want to point fingers (not to mention throw money at) schools, broadband, health care and other things that require density not money to fix. If our rural communities worked together we could solve much of the problem.
