Bearish seasonality lived up to its reputation in September. The leading tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite to dive 13%.

Italian Merger Builds Another Vehicle for Bigger Payments Deals

Neither Covid-19 nor the

fiasco have sapped appetite in Europe to create a payments giant to rival U.S. and Asian peers. The latest merger paves the way for more.

The $17.6 billion all-stock tie-up of Italian payments companies

and SIA, announced Monday, wasn’t much of a surprise. Negotiations were publicly discussed soon after Nexi’s initial public offering in April 2019.

Payments companies provide the plumbing for offline and online commerce, connecting banks, merchants and their customers. The market continues to grow as consumers get more comfortable shopping online and using cards and smartphones for financial transactions—trends that have only accelerated during the pandemic.

Facing mounting competition from both startups and big tech giants, though, payment companies are joining forces to build scale. Together, they hope to add more customers, cut costs and get more out of their investments in security and new technology.

Drunken driving, Windsor Way: On Sept. 6, police were dispatched to a one-car crash on Windsor Way.

An arriving officer located a red Chevy Trax, which struck a tree. The driver, who was still in the Trax, smelled like booze.

When asked if he had been drinking, the man slurred, “Oh, yeah, a couple of drinks.” The man then attempted to explain the car crash to the officer.

He said the car he hit swerved into him. At that point, the office corrected the driver and told him he actually hit a tree.

The driver then looked up and admitted he indeed hit a tree. After failing a field sobriety test — during which he said, “You are going to arrest me anyways, you might as well do it” — the man was arrested for drunken driving.

California to ban new gas, diesel vehicle sales by 2035

Worried about manual transmissions going away? Get ready for an extinction event properly worth grieving over, because Gavin Newsom has just announced plans to abolish the internal combustion engine by 2035. In an executive order announced Wednesday, Newsom said sales of internal-combustion passenger vehicles and light trucks would be banned by 2035. Instead of gas and diesel vehicles, the mandate calls for the sale of zero-emission vehicles. Medium- and heavy-duty trucks will be given an extra decade to comply.

BEIJING (Reuters) – Zhejiang Geely Holding Group launched its first electric vehicle-focused platform on Wednesday, aimed at rolling out a variety of models more efficiently for both the Chinese automaker and its partners.
