The operator of the converted warehouse in Oakland, Calif., where a fire broke out during a dance party on Friday night, killing at least 33 people, has been widely criticized over his initial response to the tragedy. “Everything I worked so hard for is gone,” Derick Ion Almena wrote in a Facebook post early Saturday morning. Almena’s post was met with immediate backlash from Facebook users for omitting any mention of the victims.
The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture. This all comes after a host of plant layoffs and a temporary shutdown to the Michigan facility.

According to the auction house, which threw the special auction as a favor to Ferrari and the National Italian American Foundation’s Earthquake Relief Fund, the bidding bounced back and forth for a full 10 minutes before the hammer fell. The car’s new owner wasn’t mentioned by either Ferrari or RM Sotheby’s, but according to one of the members of the well-informed site FerrariChat, the supercar—which is clad in a special red-and-black livery with an Italian flag motif and white stripes, and boasts a unique plaque—was ultimately sold to a buyer bidding via telephone.

Two days after speaking with President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen — overturning decades of U.S. policy toward China without any input from the State Department — President-elect Donald Trump went on a Twitter spree Sunday. Trump sent two Twitter messages blasting Beijing for its economic policy and Chinese work to “build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea.” Twitter shorthand being what it is, the general criticism over China constructing airstrips and landing military aircraft and troops on man-made islands is one that White House and Pentagon have been making for several years, though in much a different form.
