'Samsung won't seek family governance'

Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, the de-facto head of the country's most-powerful conglomerate, said Wednesday he will lead the changes needed to the group's web-like holding structure, vowing not to pass on the management to his children.
"I will not pass the company's management on to my children. This was always my idea, but I've been hesitant to share and open up on it, because I think it's not right to talk about issues relating to management succession before a thorough evaluation of my managerial ability, as Samsung is facing an unfavorable business environment," Lee said in a nationally-televised statement from Samsung Seocho Tower in which he issued a formal apology.

5-year-old boy in Utah was driving to California to buy a Lamborghini

Police in Utah pulled over a 5-year-old driver who said he was heading to California to buy a Lamborghini.
The boy was being watched by his 16-year-old sibling Monday when the teen took a nap, public information Officer Nick Street told USA TODAY. When the sibling woke up "the keys to the car were gone, the car was gone, and the child was gone," Street said.
The 5-year-old boy drove onto the freeway about 2 or 3 miles from his home in his parents' car, Street said.
Trooper Rick Morgan pulled the boy over after he saw the car swerving so badly on Interstate 15 in Odgen, Utah, that he thought the driver was impaired or needed medical attention. He was driving 32 mph in an area with a speed limit of 70 mph. Morgan told the Associated Press that the boy did not respond to his lights but pulled over when he hit his siren.
