BRUSSELS — British Prime Minister Theresa May has promised to let EU citizens stay after Brexit as she met sceptical European leaders for the first time since her disastrous election gamble. No EU citizen currently in Britain would be asked to leave on Brexit day, she said, while EU citizens living in Britain for more than five years will get "settled status". May said the pledge on EU citizens would instead "be enshrined in UK law and enforceable through our highly respected courts". She also drew criticism from a campaign group of EU citizens, the3million, which called her offer "pathetic". "It fails on several points which would enable EU citizens in the UK to continue to live normally after Brexit," it said.

Tesla would offer multiple levels of service starting with a radio-type platform akin to Pandora, Recode reported, quoting anonymous sources.
