Waymo CEO says it’S first commercial opportunity may be in trucking: John Krafcik, CEO of Google’s self-driving car spinoff Waymo, provided new details about the company’s plans to make money off its self-driving technology at a Bloomberg conference in New York City this week.

Climate change, water shortages and pollution pose severe risks to the $5 trillion food and agribusiness industry. Agriculture consumes 70 percent of fresh water and contributes about one-fifth of greenhouse gas emissions globally — and the sector is growing rapidly to support a population nearing 9 billion by 2050. The responsibility to balance growth with water supply and negative environmental externalities is heavy. In its second Feeding Ourselves Thirsty report, nonprofit investor coalition Ceres found that the food sector's management of water risks improved by 10 percent on average since its last report in 2015. The packaged food and meat sectors made the biggest improvements.

Touched by a news story with images of a mother and child in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, a youngster from Crest Hill was determined to help. A week ago, 10-year-old Danica Ward, with assistance from her parents and neighbors, dropped off two car loads of donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey at the Des Plaines Street parking lot where Joliet city officials had coordinated a collection. Joliet partnered with Cadence Premier Logistics, a Joliet trucking company, with plans to deliver the goods in a large semitrailer to hurricane-ravaged Texas as soon as possible.

Trucking often gets a bad rap. The media paints the industry in a bad light and ambulance chasers constantly advertise about how evil the "big trucking companies" are.

When was the last time you saw a train pull up to the mall, Walgreens, or your local Target store? Never. That's right, the trucking industry is vital to the success and sophistication of our economy.
