Good morphisms of distinguished triangles: can Neeman's method be applied to the motivic stable homotopy category?

It is well known that non-uniqueness of a cone for a morphism in a triangulated category $C$ makes constructing exact functors (of triangulated categories) a difficult task. In section 3 of his "Some ...

Is a wedge of spheres an $E_\infty$ ring spectrum?

The wedge sum $\bigvee_{k \in 2 \mathbb{Z}} S^{k}$ is an $A_\infty$-ring spectrum: the connective cover is the free $A_\infty$-ring on the sphere $S^2$, if I'm not mistaken, and then one inverts the ...
