Carmakers Diverge On How Quickly To Rollout Automatic Braking

Big automakers are rushing to launch self-driving cars as early as 2021, but the industry’s major players are moving slowly when it comes to widespread deployment of a less expensive crash prevention technology that regulators say could prevent thousands of deaths and injuries every year. Nissan Motor Co Ltd said on Thursday it would make automatic braking systems standard on an estimated 1 million 2018 model cars and light trucks sold in the United States, including high-volume models such as the Rogue and Rogue Sport compact sport utility vehicles, the Altima sedan, Murano and Pathfinder SUVs, LEAF electric car, Maxima sedan and Sentra small car. Nissan sold about 1.6 million vehicles in the United States last year. Rival Toyota Motor Corp has said it will make so-called automat...

Montolivo Has ‘Spoken’ To Belotti About Joining AC Milan

Riccardo Montolivo has told Andrea Belotti to join him at AC Milan, amid reports that the Rossoneri may up their bid for the Torino striker. Belotti, who scored 26 goals in Serie A last season, has been linked with a move to Milan since a €100 million clause in his contract with the Granata is only valid for foreign clubs. Milan are reported to have made an offer of €70 million for his services after apparently missing out on Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, who has refused a return to Serie A, but Torino are hoping to keep hold of the Italy forward next season and are said to have already received rival bids from abroad, although none yet high enough to trigger that release clause. Montolivo has spent the past few days training with Belotti while on international duty and he told Sky...

UEFA, Top European Leagues Renew Agreement To Avoid Schedule Clashes

Europe’s top leagues will renew a working agreement with UEFA that avoids clashes between domestic and Champions League games.

Milan Fans Blast ‘Conscienceless’ Raiola Over Donnarumma

AC Milan fans have hit out at agent Mino Raiola, accusing him of holding the club to ransom over the future of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

However, Raiola is delaying entering into negotiations, saying he is working in his client’s best interests.

Like Frank, Cohn was born in Frankfurt in 1929. Researchers are trying to confirm whether they were related.
