Hillary Clinton calls for ‘resistance and persistence’ from Democrats
Fri, 24 Feb 2017 14:02:28 -0500
In a video released Friday, Hillary Clinton encouraged Democrats to “move forward with courage, confidence and optimism” as the party prepares to rebuild after losing the White House and failing to gain majorities in either house of Congress in the November elections. The three-minute video was posted online shortly after it was greeted with applause at a Democratic National Committee meeting in Atlanta, Ga. The DNC will choose new party leaders, including a new chairperson, on Saturday. Although Clinton has mostly stayed out of the spotlight since her stunning election loss to Donald Trump, lately she has started to speak out more pointedly via her Twitter account.

Syria peace talks struggle as bomb kills dozens
Fri, 24 Feb 2017 14:10:31 -0500
The UN struggled on Friday to get a new round of Syrian peace talks off the ground, but with few signs of progress as dozens more civilian deaths underlined the scale of the challenge. The UN's Syria envoy, who brought rival regime and opposition delegates symbolically together late Thursday, held separate meetings with them Friday to hammer out the talks' format. "We discussed issues relating to the format of the talks exclusively," said Syrian regime delegation chief Bashar al-Jaafari after meeting de Mistura.

Uber begs users not to delete their accounts, says it’s ‘deeply hurting’
Fri, 24 Feb 2017 10:17:12 -0500

It hasn't been a great week for Uber. First, a bombshell account from Susan Fowler, a former Uber engineer went viral. In it, she alleges unchecked sexual harassment and a corporate culture that emboldens harassers and does little to make women feel welcome or even safe. That on its own is enough to make many Uber customers second guess their decision to hail a ride from the company, but a second blow wasn't far behind.

Yesterday, Google's Waymo team revealed that it had filed a lawsuit against Uber and Otto — a self-driving vehicle startup Uber acquired in 2016 — for stealing its trade secrets in order to jumpstart its own failing self-driving car platform. Now, with users fleeing in droves and a pair of huge controversies on its hands, Uber is begging people to stop deleting their accounts.

When you decide to shut down your Uber account — not just delete the app, but actually choose to close your account itself — the app prompts you to provide a reason. Uber is now scanning those responses for mentions of the Susan Fowler controversy and sending its disgruntled former users a special email message pledging to right what it has wronged.

"Everyone at Uber is deeply hurting," the message begins, followed by an explanation that outside investigators will be brought in to do an independent review of the entire operation. "We believe in creating a workplace where a deep sense of justice underpins everything we do and it's everyone's number one priority to create change in the coming months and years."

It's worth noting that Uber hasn't taken the time to comment on Google's allegations of intellectual property theft, which has now been simmering for about a day. Whatever their approach, neither of these fires are easily put out, and it's already clear that the company is in for a bumpy ride to start out 2017.


Trump asks NASA to explore putting crew on rocket's debut flight
Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:55:03 -0500
By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - The Trump administration has directed NASA to study whether it is feasible to fly astronauts on the debut flight of the agency’s heavy-lift rocket, a mission currently planned to be unmanned and targeted to launch in late 2018, officials said on Friday. The study marks President Donald Trump's first step in shaping a vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. space agency was working on the heavy-lift Space Launch System rocket and Orion deep-space capsule with the aim of sending astronauts to rendezvous with an asteroid in the mid-2020s, followed by a human expedition to Mars in the 2030s.
