Toyota is dumping the big V8 engine in the latest redesign of its Tundra full-size pickup truck, a bold move in a market that likes big, powerful engines. The 381 horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 will be replaced by a base 389 horsepower 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 or an optional gas-electric hybrid system with 437 horsepower. The chance is needed because of stronger U.S. fuel economy requirements that soon will be imposed under President Joe Biden, who is scrapping Donald Trump's rollback of the regulations.

Police in the United Kingdom have charged a third man in absentia as a conspirator in the 2018 murder attempt on Sergei Skripal, the former Russian double agent who was found poisoned in England with a military-grade nerve agent.They've charged Denis Sergeev, said to be a member of Russia's military intelligence who was operating under the alias Sergey Fedotov at the time. They say he and the two other spies, using the aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, but now known to be Alexander Mishkin and Anatoliy Chepiga, were a three-man team that ran missions for Moscow in multiple countries.Mishkin and Chepiga are said to have carried out the attack, which nearly killed Skripal and his daughter Yulia, while Sergeev met the men several times around the incident. All three are believed to be in Russia.The Skripal poisoning also critically injured a local policeman and resulted in the death of a woman whose boyfriend found a perfume bottle which police believe had been used to smuggle the nerve agent known as Novichok.British police consulted with authorities in Bulgaria and the Czech Republic during the investigation. In the past, Mishkin and Chepiga had appeared on Russian television claiming they were tourists in England.Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in the incident.Tuesday's announcement came the same day that the European Court of Human Rights ruled Russia was responsible for the 2006 poisoning death of former KGB officer, Alexander Litvinenko, in London.

Uber could be on the road to hitting a profitability marker for the first time in its 12-year history and that milestone is on track to happen faster than expected. The ride-hailing and food delivery app updated its forecast on Tuesday, and predicts it could see an adjusted profit of up to $25 million in the current quarter.. That forecast jumps to $100 million for the fourth quarter. A rise in gross bookings is fueling that optimism. The company said riders returned in greater numbers in July and it expects that pace to continue in the months ahead. That's a different story from last year when demand was low as fewer consumers ventured outdoors... and many who did, opted to buy a car for transportation. Meanwhile, Uber's other business: food delivery has been strong during the health crisis and Uber expects that to continue. Even with that, Uber still lags its smaller rival Lyft when it comes to the race to turn a profit. Lyft posted an adjusted profit in August....three months ahead of schedule as it got a boost from lower costs and a jump in rides as vaccinated workers around the country started to return to the office. Investors, who have been clamoring for a profit ever since Uber’s IPO more than two years ago, were pleased with the new forecast. Shares of Uber traded higher in early Tuesday trading. So did shares of Lyft.
