("Lithium-ion car and bus batteries can collect and discharge electricity for an additional 7 to 10 years after being stripped from chassis. A typical EV battery retains about 50 percent to 70 percent of its power capacity upon removal, said Tom Zhao, managing director of global sales for BYD's battery group")

the first three paragraphs:

"Jane was working in Amazon.com Inc's Seattle headquarters when she was asked to a meeting with her manager and a human resources representative. They gave her a document outlining concerns about her work performance and spelled out three choices. She could quit and receive severance pay, spend the next several weeks trying to keep her job by meeting certain performance goals, or square off with her manager in a videoconference version of the Thunderdome, pleading her case with a panel of co-workers while her boss argued against her. Jane, who asked that her real name not be used * * *

"The employee appeal process is Amazon’s latest experiment in managing its growing workforce of more than 500,000. When it announced the program last year, Amazon acknowledged it had been quick to fire people instead of trying to resolve problems in other ways. Executives recognized that poorly defined roles, dysfunctional teams, and peremptory managers were among the factors that often remained unexamined, according to a person familiar with the matter. * * *

"Amazon is borrowing a page from union grievance processes * * * But only about 30 percent of those who appeal their manager's criticisms prevail, meaning they can keep their jobs or seek new ones within the company with different bosses, according to people familiar with the matter. * * *

My comment:
(a)
(i) summary underneath the title in print: workers refereeing one another's firings has raised questions about fairness

(iii) Print and the online version are identical.
(b) I am unsure if you want to read the rest.

My comment:
(a) This is "The Heist Issue," the second half of which is devoted to robbery.
(b) subtitle: A global dragnet nabbed the alleged mastermind behind the biggest digital bank heist in history. That doesn't mean it's over.
