DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has agreed to plead guilty and pay a $30 million fine for a corruption scandal at the union that represents its factory workers. Federal prosecutors in Detroit charged the company with conspiracy from 2009 to 2016. The government says company representatives gave more than $3.5 million in cash and other things to senior officials at the United Auto Workers. The money came from a jointly run training center. Fiat Chrysler spokeswoman Shawn Morgan confirmed the company’s planned guilty plea and fine. Edward “Nick” Robinson, who was a union official in the St. Louis area, was sentenced to a year in prison Wednesday for conspiring to embezzle dues. His cooperation helped the government convict former presidents Dennis Williams and Gary Jones.

The £10million England midfielder’s sixth goal in as many games secured the win – the Black Cats’ first in the league in six attempts at the Stadium of Light – and in the process eased them out of the relegation zone for the first time since August. Johnson struck from close range with 17 minutes gone after Potters keeper Asmir Begovic had spilled Fabio Borini’s effort, to the delight of the bulk of a crowd of 34,745. Stoke, who handed a debut to new signing Peter Odemwingie, were simply not in the game during the opening stages and found themselves defending for dear life. However, they gradually eased their way into it and would have gone in at half-time level had Sunderland keeper Vito Mannone not pulled off a stunning 39th-minute save to keep out Ryan Shawcross’ point-blank header. But their hopes of mounting a fightback were dealt a fatal blow within eight minutes of the restart when midfielder Steven Nzonzi was sent off for a second bookable offence, although Shawcross looped a header against the bar with six minutes remaining. Stoke manager Mark Hughes, who saw Glenn Whelan and Marc Wilson dismissed in a 5-1 drubbing at Newcastle on Boxing Day, was less than impressed by referee Robert Madley’s decision, but his protests counted for nothing. Gus Poyet’s men have now lost just two of their last 13 games, and will head into Saturday’s derby trip to Newcastle brimming with confidence. By contrast, Stoke have now gone six league games without a win and have been dragged firmly into the fight for survival. Lee Cattermole’s absence from the 18 caused raised eyebrows on Wearside after days of speculation that he is a transfer target for Stoke, although injury was later cited as the cause. Only he and Steven Fletcher of the men who had started the Capital One Cup semi-final at Old Trafford a week earlier were missing as the Black Cats went in search of a first league victory at the Stadium of Light since November 10. Poyet had demanded a much better start that the one he saw in their last outing, when his side trailed 2-0 to Southampton within 31 minutes, and he got it as his players took the game to the Potters from the off. Less than seven minutes had elapsed when midfield Sebastian Larsson warmed Begovic’s hands from distance after Jozy Altidore and Borini had linked well. Mannone had to pluck Oussama Assaidi’s deflected cross from under his crossbar three minutes later, but it was the home side who dominated the opening stages with full-back Phil Bardsley sending a looping shot tamely over the bar and then blasting a 15th-minute volley just wide of the far post. They got their reward two minutes later when Begovic failed to hold Borini’s well-struck shot and Johnson pounced on the rebound before rounding him and sliding the ball home from an acute angle. With Altidore far more effective in holding the ball up than in recent weeks, the Black Cats pinned Stoke back, and it was not until Odemwingie was shifted from the right side of midfield into closer contact with lone striker Peter Crouch that the visitors found their feet. Charlie Adam almost caught Mannone out with a rasping strike which flew just wide of the far post, and the Italian very nearly handed Crouch an open goal when he spilled defender Geoff Cameron’s cross as he collided with team-mate John O’Shea, but recovered in time to make a vital block. Cameron headed wastefully over after Adam’s 37th-minute corner had been helped on to him beyond the far post, and the Scotland international was the provider once again six minutes before the break. He picked out Shawcross unmarked outside the six-yard box with a driven cross, but Mannone somehow kept out the central defender’s bullet header with Sunderland in disarray. However, Stoke were dealt a major blow eight minutes into the second half when Nzonzi was adjudged to have felled Altidore and having been booked before the break for a foul on the same man, he was dismissed. The United States international could have effectively finished the game as a contest when he ran through unopposed, but was denied by Begovic’s legs three minutes later. Johnson fizzed a shot across the face of goal and Larsson tested the keeper from distance once again as the Black Cats tried to kill the game off. But Odemwingie had a glorious opportunity to level 16 minutes from time when he slipped the ball between Wes Brown’s legs, but then shot straight at Mannone, and Shawcross was denied by the woodwork amid a late desperate flurry. Adam Johnson continued his mission to single-handedly fire Sunderland to Barclays Premier League safety as his goal secured a 1-0 victory over 10-man Stoke. Press Association
New York Jets running back Chris Ivory (33) jumps over Pittsburgh Steelers’ William Gay (22) during the first half of an NFL football game Monday, Nov. 10, 2014, in East Rutherford, N.J. (AP Photo/Bill Kostroun)EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – No big day for Big Ben this time. Not with four turnovers by the Pittsburgh Steelers.Coming off two straight games with six touchdown tosses, Ben Roethlisberger was held to just one as the New York Jets’ defense mostly shut down the record-setting quarterback and the Steelers’ high-scoring offense in a 20-13 victory on Sunday.“You can’t turn the ball over, and we did it too much,” Roethlisberger said. “This stings.”Michael Vick threw two touchdown passes, Jaiquawn Jarrett intercepted two of Roethlisberger’s passes and the Jets (2-8) ended an eight-game skid and stopped a three-game winning streak for the Steelers (6-4).“All right!” Ryan exclaimed. “Finally!”Roethlisberger, the first in NFL history with six TDs in consecutive games, was playing in front of a MetLife Stadium crowd that appeared nearly half-filled with Terrible Towel-waving Steelers fans. But the Jets wouldn’t allow Roethlisberger to get into much of a rhythm.“There’s nothing mystical about the outcome of that football game,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “We talked all week about why that team struggled: because they were minus in the turnover ratio. … Well, they weren’t today. They were plus-4.“You’re going to lose football games when you’re minus-4 in the turnover ratio, and we did today.”Roethlisberger finished 30 of 43 for 343 yards and connected with Martavis Bryant for an 80-yard TD with 1:16 left that made it close at the end.The Steelers attempted an onside kick, but Eric Decker recovered to seal it for the Jets – who avoided setting a franchise mark for consecutive losses.“The reality is,” Tomlin said, “we shot ourselves in the foot today.”The Jets weren’t happy after the game that Mike Mitchell tried to break up their victory formation, leaping over the top of center Nick Mangold, who slammed the Steelers safety to the ground, causing a brief shoving match.“It’s a dirty play,” Mangold said.But the Jets won by playing mostly a clean game Sunday, successful for the first time since beating Oakland on opening day.“Today,” Vick said, “was going to be our day.”Vick, who became the first quarterback in NFL history to run for 6,000 career yards, threw touchdown passes to T.J. Graham and Jace Amaro. Vick was 10 of 18 for 132 yards and ran eight times for 39 yards, and Ryan announced that the veteran will start again against Buffalo after the bye week.The Jets looked good on their first possession, but the 14-play drive stalled at the Steelers 5 and Nick Folk made a 23-yard field goal.After Jarrett sacked Roethlisberger on third-and-15 to force a punt, the Jets got right back on the scoreboard. Vick had plenty of time and zipped a perfectly placed pass into the hands of a sprinting Graham, who ran it into the end zone for a 67-yard touchdown.The Jets got the ball right back when Muhammad Wilkerson forced a fumble by Antonio Brown and Jarrett recovered. Jarrett finished with two interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery after drawing the late start after first-round pick Calvin Pryor was benched.After a sack on first down, Vick scrambled for 18 yards, including a shake-and-bake move that buckled Steelers cornerback Brice McCain’s knees. Three plays later, Vick found Amaro and made it 17-0 with 19 seconds left in the opening quarter.“That’s what happens when you turn the ball over,” Roethlisberger said. “You dig yourself a hole.”Pittsburgh appeared on its way to its first score with a long drive in the second quarter helped by a personal foul penalty on New York’s Jason Babin. But at the Jets 10, Roethlisberger had his short pass attempt tipped by Marcus Williams right into Jarrett’s hands.“We didn’t secure the ball and we didn’t get the ball,” Tomlin said. “It’s not winning football.”The Jets, who came in with three takeaways all season, got their third of the first half when Brown muffed Ryan Quigley’s punt and Graham recovered.In the final quarter, Pittsburgh had first-and-goal from the 1, but was stuffed on four straight plays – including a penalty on the Jets and LeGarrette Blount losing 8 yards on a run. Shaun Suisham’s 27-yarder made it 20-6 with 7:21 left.“It’s a team we should beat,” Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons said. “But this is the NFL. You have to go in their house and you can’t go in here and win if you have four turnovers and none on defense.”NOTES: Suisham hooked a 23-yard attempt wide left on the first play of the fourth quarter. … Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell had eight catches for 33 yards, giving him 55 receptions for the season, surpassing John L. Williams (51 in 1994) for the most in team history by a running back. … Brown was held to 74 yards receiving, the first time this season he failed to get 80 or more.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL
Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales. You need help now. We’ve got you covered. This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now The modern salesperson is not what you have been told. They aren’t digital. The modern salesperson isn’t a “social seller” either. Digital is a tool kit and, therefore, it is no indication of what makes one a modern salesperson. The modern salesperson is something much more than someone who knows how to use a set of tools—even the tools that are necessary to the trade.The mistake here is in believing that the tools are what make the salesperson modern. That’s the mindset of a dabbler, someone who falls in love with some sport or hobby and buys all the professional gear believing that is what is necessary to produce the result. Your new LeBron Nikes are not going to make you a better basketball player.The modern salesperson is a value creator. They have the business acumen, the subject matter expertise, and the situational knowledge to sit across from their dream client as a peer and as a consultative salesperson. They possess information, insights, and ideas that are valuable to their prospective clients—even if that person never buys from them. They create value that is worth paying for, and in doing so, they differentiate themselves from their competitors. This is what makes one modern.The modern salesperson does not enter into the sales conversation by sharing information about their company, their products, the feature and benefits thereof, or why you should buy from them. They don’t believe that their product or company is supposed to sell itself. Nor does the modern salesperson start with discovery questions that the prospective client has been asked repeatedly for two or more decades. Instead, they start the conversation with ideas about what is going on currently, what it means, and why and how one might change. They have deep chops and can hold their own in a conversation about what their client should do to produce better results.Salespeople who have evolved faster than their clients (which is a more accurate assessment than the idea that the opposite is true) understand that they are engaged in the process of helping their clients change, and they know how to help them with a process that allows them to make a good decision. This includes knowing how to get the stakeholders to find consensus among their teams and how to help them execute a new solution, one that will move them to a better future state.These outcomes, and many more along this line, are what is necessary to making one a modern salesperson. A nice LinkedIn profile is not going to cover any of this ground, even if you put the words “trusted advisor” in your profile (something I will beg you not to do). The digital tools don’t make one a modern salesperson any more than a Rolodex, a business journal, and a phone book would have made one a modern salesperson in 1984. The ability to create value for the client in an age of continuous, accelerating, disruptive change is what makes one a modern salesperson. As has always been true, the tools are ancillary.
