Five years later, Lyft is finally competing with Uber's roots. The No. 2 ride-hailing company on Thursday launched Lyft Lux, its version of premium black car rides the service that Uber launched with in 2009, but that Lyft never really tried out after it launched in 2012. "You do it all. Your ride should, too. We've added two black car options Lyft Lux and Lyft Lux SUV so even when you're dressed to the nines, Lyft offers a ride that suits your needs," Lyft wrote in a blog post. Lyft Lux and Lyft Lux SUV will be available in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and San Jose. Drivers who work in those cities can start driving for Lyft Lux if they have an approved vehicle from at least 2011 with a black exterior. Certain models of Audis, Bentleys, BMWs, Cadillacs, Buicks, Land Rovers, Lincolns, Maseratis, and other cars on a long list qualify. Read more... More about Uber , Lyft , and Business

ATHENS: Greek former prime minister Lucas Papademos was hurt Thursday when an explosive device went off inside his car in Athens, state TV said. State TV ERT said Papademos had chest and leg wounds and trouble breathing, but his life was not in danger. Two of his guards were lightly hurt, ERT said. "We are shocked. I wish to condemn this heinous act," media minister Nikos Pappas told the station. ERT said Papademos, prime minister from 2011 to 2012, had been targeted by a letter bomb. A police source said a number of people had been hurt but could not say if Papademos himself was in the car at the time of the blast. Papademos, 69, a former Bank of Greece governor, was in an armoured car, ERT said. He headed an interim coalition government at the height of Greece's fiscal crisis that in 2012 negotiated a massive write-down of the country's privately-held debt.

In the summer, food is more beautiful with a pink hue: Rosé , Frappuccinos , cakes and now, pink pineapples . The strange new strain of everyones favorite tropical fruit has actually been in development by Del Monte Fresh Produce since 2005, but the pictures of their hot pink perfection began to surface again last week. Now theyre taking over Instagram feeds just in time for summer. Yes, theyre cute but can you eat them? Last December, the FDA gave pink pineapples its seal of approval, meaning they can be sold in grocery stores. Now, Del Monte and Dole are teaming up like two produce superheroes to grow the pink pineapples in Hawaii and Costa Rica. Even if the FDA says theyre safe to eat or wedge on the edge of your cocktail glass by the pool they are indeed genetically modified . Del Monte, which received the patent to create that signature extra sweet pink flesh pineapple, appropriately named Rosé, in 2012, turned the pineapples pink using lycopene, the substance that gives tomatoes their fire engine red color, and makes watermelons pink as well, meaning youve probably already safely eaten plenty of lycopene in your life.

The North Carolina Tar Heels and football head coach Larry Fedora agreed on a contract extension that will keep the coach in Chapel Hill through the 2022 season. "I enjoy coaching at the University of North Carolina and I appreciate the trust Chancellor Folt and Bubba Cunningham have shown in the leadership of our program," Fedora said. "Our staff and players have worked diligently over the last five years to build a program that encompasses all aspects of the student-athlete experience, while simultaneously achieving success on the field." Jonathan Jones of SI.com has been pleasantly surprised by Fedora's commitment to the program: Fedora, 54, has gone 40-25 record in five seasons with North Carolina, leading the school to four straight bowl games, though the Tar Heels have gone 1-3 in those contests.

Regulation changes in 2014 reintroduced turbocharged engines and, as it was the company that introduced forced induction to F1, there was an expectation that Renault would be successful with its new 1.6-litre V6. Sadly, it wasnt to be the case as the Mercedes engine proved more powerful and more reliable. During this new turbocharged Formula 1 era Renault has returned as full manufacturer entry. Now called the Renault Sport Formula One Team it has gradually improved its powertrain, but it’s still lagging behind Mercedes. Image 1 of 28 Image 1 of 28

The two womens stories shared in the video above demonstrate the challenges that LGBT elders face as they age. Tina and Jackie were born in the same Virginia town in 1947. Despite their similar beginnings, the womens lives take very different turns and a lifetime of discrimination, lost wages, lack of family recognition, and more add up to create substantial difficulties for Jackie. Jackies story is all too common. Americas population is aging: by 2050, the number of people over the age of 65 will double to 83.7 million (from 43.1 million in 2012). While the public perception of LGBT people is largely one of a young, affluent community, there are more than 2.7 million LGBT adults ages 50 or older living in communities across the country, one in five of whom are older adults of color. A new report released today by the Movement Advancement Project and SAGE, Understanding Issues Facing LGBT Older Adults , provides a snapshot of the demographics of LGBT elders, an aging community that is diverse in terms of race and ethnicity, gender, and age.

With 20 years of a music career that saw her on the road living out of a suitcase, Merritt began collecting textiles, as they were a small enough souvenir to carry back home. Her favorite became antique ribbons for their incredible detail and craftsmanship. After acquiring a few old guitars in the summer of 2012, she wanted to complete them with custom guitar straps and with the help of boutique hotelier, Liz Lambert, she became hooked. Having known Merritt since 2002, it's no surprise Jerry Helling asked her design a collection of striped textiles inspired by her ever-growing collection. The result is a beautiful collection layered with woven textures, soothing color palettes, and rich histories of where they came from, much like a song. The collection is made up of six designsCadence, Forte, Reverb, Solo, Swing, and Verse – that come in 51 colorways.

Mark Anderson AFP With a little help from the Virginia police in the Fairfax County Sully District, as well as the obscure Bilderberg media-relations outlet and its May 19 late-coming online announcement, it’s been confirmed that Bilderberg 2017 will take place in Virginia, June 1-4, at the Westfields Marriot in Chantilly. The Bilderbergers are naturally attracted to that snooty, secluded hotel, since they’ve met there before—in 2002, 2008, and in 2012, the year that Jim Tucker, the late AFP Bilderberg hound, made his last appearance covering the shadowy group after chasing these sons of smokestack billionaires since the mid-1970s. The annual Bilderberg gatherings are perhaps the most exclusive and obscure among all the meetings of economic ministers (G7, G20 etc.), the World Economic Forum, and other, more familiar global groupings. (...) Coming out of last year’s meeting in Dresden, Germany, the Bilderbergers are facing an altered world, what with the U.

He says he "just walked in" to the AARP offices nine months ago, filled out paperwork and a day later was undergoing training. "I could not find more than temporary work before." It may seem like a good time to be an older worker seeking a job in an economy recovering from recession. Unemployment among Americans over 55 is at 3.3 percent, lower than the nation's already healthy 4.4 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But older Americans face unique challenges finding work, including health problems, living in rural areas and the plain fact that they have a limited working future, various studies have shown. A 2012 analysis by a private contractor for the Labor Department found that job placement among those participating in the seniors' employment program declined with age. The government estimates that by 2020, workers age 55 and over will make up a quarter of the workforce.
