Uber Lyft drivers plan to strike in cities across the US

first_imgNEW YORK — Drivers for ride-hailing giants Uber and Lyft are planning to turn off their apps to protest what they say are declining wages at a time when both companies are raking in billions of dollars from investors.Organizers are planning demonstrations in 10 U.S. cities Wednesday, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.They’re timing their protests in advance of Uber’s initial public stock offering, which is planned for Friday. Uber aims to raise $9 billion from investors.It’s not the first time drivers for ride-hailing apps have staged protests. Strikes were planned in several cities ahead of Lyft’s IPO last month, although the disruption to riders appeared to be minimal.

Inside the Hollywood Home of Social Medias Stars Dont Be Shy

The building at 1600 Vine functions as dormitory and studio lot for some of the internet’s biggest stars. Facebook Videos shot there have been watched billions of times. The common spaces — a spacious gym, walkways lined with beige blocks and a courtyard surrounded by lush plants — are so recognizable that it’s like walking onto the set of a popular TV show.

Police brace for driver protests in Paris around France

first_imgPARIS — France is deploying thousands of police to try to contain nationwide protests and road blockades by drivers angry over rising fuel taxes and Emmanuel Macron’s presidency.Tensions have been mounting around the grassroots movement that drew more than a quarter million people a week ago to protests across France, from Provence to Normandy and in between.A new wave of protests is planned Saturday, including beneath the Eiffel Tower. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner called for calm and promised tough police measures against unruly crowds.Paris alone is deploying some 3,000 security forces, notably around tourist-frequented areas like the Champs-Elysees, after an unauthorized attempt last week to march on the presidential palace.Two people have been killed and hundreds injured in the week of protests, which are posing a big challenge to Macron.Authorities are struggling because the movement has no clear leader and has attracted a motley group of people with broadly varying demands. The protesters call themselves the “yellow jackets” for the neon security vests that drivers are required to keep in their vehicles.A man caused a dramatic standoff with police Friday when he donned a neon vest and brandished an apparent grenade at a supermarket in the western city of Angers. He was later arrested.Most of the protesters’ anger is focused at Macron, a pro-business centrist accused of indifference to the struggles of ordinary people.Macron has defended the fuel taxes as necessary to reduce France’s dependence on fossil fuels, but promised to lay out new plans Tuesday to make the “energy transition” easier.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Des poils vieux de 100 millions dannées découverts dans lambre

first_imgDes poils vieux de 100 millions d’années découverts dans l’ambreFrance – Des poils de mammifères vieux de 100 millions d’années ont été retrouvés fossilisés dans l’ambre d’une carrière de Font-de-Benon en Charente-Maritime d’après la revue Naturwissenschaften.Il s’agit des plus vieux poils découverts à ce jour dans un tel état de conservation. D’après les chercheurs de l’université de Rennes (CNRS), ils auraient pu appartenir à un mammifère de la taille d’une souris et seraient identiques à ceux des mammifères de notre époque.Une constatation qui permet aux chercheurs d’affirmer que la structure actuelle du poil est établie depuis très longtemps.Les restes d’un insecte ont également été retrouvés dans le même dépôt de résine fossile. Ils pourraient appartenir à une mouche venue se nourrir du mammifère en décomposition. Pour l’heure, il est impossible de savoir exactement à quel animal appartenaient ces poils, même si les dents des plus vieux marsupiaux d’Europe ont été découverts l’année dernière dans cette même grotte.

Fallstreak hole or real UFO Amazing shape spotted in UAE skies sparks

first_imgTwitter/UFO Sightings DailyA few days back, several photos and videos apparently taken from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) surfaced online, and these images featured a strange circular structure in the skies. Most of the users who posted the video on Twitter and Facebook argued that a hole had opened up in the sky, while some others alleged that weather control manipulation is going on.However, after analyzing the videos and photos, popular conspiracy theorist and extraterrestrial researcher Scott C Waring proposed a bizarre theory that may seem too tough for the human conscience to digest.Alien UFO in UAE?As per Waring, the gigantic circular hole-like shape spotted in the skies of UAE could be a cloaked alien UFO. The self-proclaimed researcher argued that aliens have visited the Arab country because of its rich oil and wealth.شوهدت هذه الظاهرة النادرة والجميلة صباح اليوم في مدينة العين تُسمى hole punch cloud أو ظاهرة fallstreak hole pic.twitter.com/NbOd9zofNk— إبراهيم الجروان (@ibrahimaljarwan) March 17, 2019″That’s easy to answer, its a clocked alien craft. They are over the UAE to observe one of the richest countries in the world for their oil and wealth. If you look closely at the hole, you will see an inner and outer ring. This means the UFO is still there right now as this photo was taken. That’s right, it hasn’t flown away, it is still there. Did you also notice that the centre of the circle has a pushed down lower area of clouds? Because the ships lower part shoved the clouds out of the way to make room for the UFO,” wrote Waring on his website UFO Sightings Daily.Waring also alleged that these UFO sightings should be investigated seriously as it is a matter of public privacy.”They are watching, recording and gathering more data on you than you knew existed. All without your permission to do so. That is a crime that has continued for thousands of years on Earth and still does. I call that a crime against humanity,” added Waring.Experts put forward convincing explanationHowever, experts who analyzed the UFO images and videos quickly dismissed the alien angle, and they made it clear that the structure appeared in UAE skies is nothing but Fallstreak hole popularly known as hole punch cloud. Weather experts revealed that this is a purely natural phenomenon, and it usually happens when the water temperature in the clouds below get frozen, but the water, in a supercooled state, has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation.last_img read more

DeStress During the Holidays in KFCs Internet Escape Pod

KFC’s Loaded Cheetos Sandwich Is Here to Sabotage Healthy DietsFinally, You Can Buy a KFC Drumstick That Will Last Forever Stay on targetcenter_img The holidays don’t always feel like the hap-happiest season of all. There’s the last-minute shopping panic, the awkward family gatherings, the stress eating of an entire gingerbread house.And everyone has their own way of coping with the pressure: exercise, a long bath, eating fried chicken in an isolation chamber.King of bizarre promotions, KFC this week introduced the branded “Internet Escape Pod”—a tent-like dome designed to disrupt the Internet flowing to and from your devices.AdChoices广告“We’ve come up with several technologically advanced, creative experiences for our customers and fans this year,” George Felix, director of advertising for KFC US, said in a statement.Among them, a space-bound sandwich, branded smartphone, and a meal box with built-in gaming controls.“But even we feel the burden of technology during the holiday season,” Felix continued. “So we decided to go in the opposite direction and create an anti-technology product, using technology, to help one lucky buyer literally escape the holiday chaos.”Escape the holiday-related tech noise with this weird tent (via KFC)Made out of steel and high-density architectural foam, the Escape Pod fits four adults and a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, so you can eat in peace under the Colonel’s reassuring embrace.Flee from calendar reminders for festive events you don’t want to attend. Ignore the desire to check disheartening social media apps. Sidestep nagging texts from your parents about where you’ve run off to in the middle of dinner.One lucky buyer can snag the themed Faraday cage (complete with drumstick door handle) for $10,000—assembly and installation included.“We were going to sell this for the ridiculously high price of $96,485.34, but in the spirit of the season, I said, ‘Nah, let’s make it a deal,’” Felix boasted.Don’t worry if you miss out on this exclusive deal. Everyone else can simply turn off and stow their electronics for the duration of the season.“Although we have done our best to ensure total Internet escape, a special person with a gizmo has to test our cage before we can claim total and utter signal impenetrability,” according to the product page. “Upon installation, every effort will be taken to ensure it fully blocks your device.

Put Debra Wilson in More Video Games

first_img ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…‘Dolemite Is My Name’ Trailer Shows Bawdy Blaxploitation Biopic Stay on target One sign that you maybe play too many video games is that you know about and have strong feelings on Nolan North and/or Troy Baker. As games get bigger and more cinematic, naturally they start making more use of voice actors. But for one reason or another, video games (and anime) tend to use the same pool of performers to bring characters to life through voiceover and motion capture. And since video games still largely star a certain type of adventurous white dude, so many games now star Nolan North and/or Troy Baker it’s basically a joke.But the video game industry is big enough to have more than these two ubiquitous actors. So we’d like to suggest a long-overlooked talent who has already began making her mark in some recent hits. Put Debra Wilson in more video games!MADtv, while never reaching the cultural appreciation of fellow sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live or even its own magazine, was a criminally underrated comedy artifact from the late 90s through early 2000s. It was often cruder and more juvenile than SNL, but that gave it a kind of FOX-y edgy energy the aging NBC institution lacked. Coke vs Pepsi and all that.While not every MADtv veteran went on to have the most illustrious careers (remember Frank TV?) others did. Phil Lamarr and Alex Borstein are beloved voice actors. Ike Barinholtz shows up in a bunch of movies now. Will Sasso had great lemon-based Vines. Taran Killam made the jump to SNL and then Hamilton. Key & Peele was a direct continuation of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s sketch chemistry on MADtv. And now Jordan Peele is an Academy Award nominee at least due to his work on Get Out.But for my money the most consistently hilarious performer MADtv ever had was Debra Wilson. In a sketch comedy landscape that can only make jokes about the lack of roles for Black women without actually fixing the problem, Wilson turned impersonations of Oprah and Whitney Houston and Chris Tucker into bonafide comedy masterpieces week after week. Just watch some of this stuff.Because the entertainment industry is unfair, Debra Wilson kind of disappeared after MADtv stopped being a thing. That is, unless you pay attention to voice acting credits. Wilson has appeared in some cartoons like The Boondocks and Black Dynamite and that Madagascar spin-off. But more interesting to me was all the video games she’s been in.She was the voice of Crying Wolf, one of the traumatized supermodels trapped inside robot animals who served as the bosses (and least confusing element) of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. She was in Fallout New Vegas, Grand Theft Auto V, Gears of War 4, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Far Cry Primal, and World of Warcraft. More recently she played Amanda Waller in the newest season of the surprisingly excellent Telltale Batman series (which understands Amanda Waller should never be skinny). And perhaps her now most famous gaming role is Grace Walker, the Black anti-Nazi revolutionary Angela Davis-type of last year’s Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.Wilson’s excellent, memorable performance in Wolfenstein, as a character we just don’t see in video games, sealed the deal for me that she absolutely needs to be in more video games, and not just because I’m nostalgic for her MADtv roles. We just need more cool, diverse, talented actors to keep showing up in our video games. With Debra Wilson, it’s already happening. Let’s keep it going. You get a video game voice acting career and you get a video game voice acting career and you get a video game voice acting career!Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
