Why e-scooters are a victim of their own success and what they’re doing about it

News from the front desk 452: Tomorrowland is back. This year we’ve named our yearly signature event I, human in the climate emergency. The title was obvious. We have fast… Australian households are doing their bit to cut the nation’s carbon emissions by adopting solar rooftop panels but not all of them are saving on their energy bills. In many cities like San Francisco and Paris you can hardly walk along the pavement without stumbling over an electric scooter, or e-scooter. There are many operators – such as Spin, Bird (which recently raised US$150 million at a valuation of over US$1 billion), Jump Bike and Lime. Usain Bolt has just launched his own Bolt Mobility range of scooters in Paris and some US cities. They all have the same business model and about the same cost: US$1 plus 15 cents per minute. They nip around at about 24 kilometres an hour, but some can go much faster. Since jumping onto the scene just 18 months ago, the explosion of their use has led to a backlash – dubbed variously on social media as Scootergeddon, Scooterpocalypse, or Scooter Wars. In France, an association named APACAUVI (Philanthropic association against urban anarchy), has been formed by someone w...

MANILA – The Integrated Bar of the Philippines is demanding a swift investigation into the killing

MANILA – The Integrated Bar of the Philippines is demanding a swift investigation into the killing of Negros Oriental lawyer Anthony Trinidad last week. “For if lawyers who are the sentinels of the rule of law and who serve the poor are themselves assassinated with impunity, no one would be safe and no one would expect justice in our country,” it said. On July 23, Trinidad was shot dead while his wife was wounded in an attack by motorcycle-riding assailants in Guihulngan City. The couple were on their way home from a hearing in neighboring La Libertad town. The IBP remembered Trinidad as “good and selfless,” who chose public interest cases in his hometown over a lucrative career in Manila. 100w Light Bar “The killing of Atty. Trinidad is added to the growing list of murders and attempts on the life of lawyers, judges, and prosecutors in the Philippines,” it said. The group said it will add more benefits to Trinidad and “all others who may be attacked possibly for their public interest lawyering.” A school principal, an education department employee, and a barangay chairman were also gunned down last week.

The DOJ officially approved the $26.5 billion T-Mobile–Sprint merger deal last month. However, it won’t be

The DOJ officially approved the $26.5 billion T-Mobile–Sprint merger deal last month. However, it won’t be easy for T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) to merge their businesses. Some states are concerned about less competition and increased costs for consumers. On August 1, Reuters reported that Texas’ attorney general, Ken Paxton, joined a group of state attorneys general lawsuit opposing the merger. Paxton is the first Republican attorney general to sue to stop the T-Mobile–Sprint merger deal. Currently, the District of Columbia and fourteen states are suing the third- and fourth-largest mobile operators in the US. Reuters reported, “Under the Justice Department deal announced a week ago, the companies would divest Sprint’s prepaid businesses, including Boost Mobile, to satellite television company Dish Network (DISH), and provide it with access to 20,000 cell sites and hundreds of retail locations.” Reuters added, “That deal is worth about $5 billion.” On August 1, the court decided that the trial would start in December. The previous start date of the hearing was October 7. On July 31, the states had asked for a new trial date in December, as reported by Reuters. However, the T...

2020 Land Rover Defender: 50 things you need to know

It’s the car that defines the Land Rover brand, but the new Defender is radically different from the original. UNVEILED at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new 2020 Land Rover Defender is a powerhouse of technology housed in more futuristic styling that acknowledges the original Land Rovers but moves the design game along. We spent hours with the designers and engineers who spent the best part of a decade bringing the new Defender to market, to get a detailed rundown of the second generation of a Land Rover classic. “All-new” is a phrase often bandied around freely in the car industry, but with the new Defender it really is all-new. No single component is shared with the previous Defender, not even a badge. The core of the Defender is radically different to the original. The original Land Rovers had aluminium body panels and a steel ladder-frame structure. The new one is almost the opposite. It has an aluminium intensive monocoque body (with high-strength steel used selectively for strength) and mostly steel panels, including the doors and front guards. The only clue Land Rover Australia is giving regarding Defender pricing is that the 110 will start at around $70,000 plus on...

While research is still underway, many medical experts believe that taking a probiotic can benefit your

While research is still underway, many medical experts believe that taking a probiotic can benefit your health in a few ways. Some probiotics are formulated to improve digestive health, while others may target vaginal, urinary, and immunity health, or any combination of these. When shopping for the best probiotics for women, you’ll want to look for one that addresses your specific needs, or search for one with a broad range of bacteria that can improve many facets of your health at once. According to Dr. Allison Hill, a Los Angeles-based OB-GYN, women should look for brands that contain a wide array of bacteria. “Taking a probiotic that contains multiple strains can increase its benefits to your body. For example, a probiotic that contains the strain Lactobacillus acidophilus can improve your digestive and intestinal environments. This benefit is in addition to its most basic benefit of counterbalancing antibiotic use and maintaining general health, which is a common reason people take probiotics,” she told Bustle. One thing to note: You should always check with your health care provider before adding a supplement to your diet, but it’s especially importa...

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free Mobile, dont la part de marché au 3e trimestre atteint 11% avec 7,435 millions d’abonnés. Le groupe Iliad, maison-mère de Free, se porte toujours aussi bien. Au 3e trimestre, son chiffre d’affaires a atteint 944,2 millions d’euros, soit une hausse d’un peu plus de 15% sur un an. Sur les 9 premiers mois de 2013, la croissance de l’opérateur est de 22,5% à 2,7 milliards d’euros de CA. C’est dans le secteur de la téléphonie mobile que la croissance est la plus forte au dernier trimestre (+34,7%), avec 321 millions de chiffre d’affaires dégagés. Free Mobile ne communique en revanche pas sur sa rentabilité. En termes de conquête, le 4e opérateur mobile a attiré 640.000 nouveaux abonnés, portant le parc total de clients de Free Mobile à 7,435 millions. Cela représente 11% de part de marché. « Le Groupe a accéléré sa conquête d’abonnés sur les utilisateurs ayant une consommation modérée (forfait mobile à 2€/mois) » commente Iliad. Mais si Free a continué de gagner massivement des clients, Reuters précise néanmoins qu’il s’agit du « nombre de conquêtes d’abonnés le plus faible dep...

At this week’s climate symposium on CNN, Elizabeth Warren answered a question about whether the government

At this week’s climate symposium on CNN, Elizabeth Warren answered a question about whether the government should be regulating lightbulbs in an interesting way. She said, basically, that we’re focusing on the wrong thing. There’s nothing wrong with more efficient lightbulbs, but it’s small beer. That’s what the fossil fuel companies want us to be arguing about, because most of the carbon is thrown up by three industries — construction, electric power, and oil — and arguing about lightbulbs takes attention away from those sectors. The obvious inconvenient truth that Warren is pointing out here is that we aren’t going to be able to fight climate change with a series of small-change consumer choices. It’s going to require massive changes in large industries, which is a heavier political lift. Below the radar, there’s another inconvenient truth being implied: that people are really irritated by losing even small conveniences, and so focusing energy on these small-beer fights has a real cost in terms of being able to fight the bigger fights. She’s right about both. But those aren’t the most inconvenient truths about the fig...
