The ride-hailing company has hit a few rocky patches over the past few months, most recently hearing concerns from users after an update introduced background GPS tracking that follows a rider up to five minutes after their trip ends and even if the app is closed. A company spokeswoman told BuzzFeed News in December that one of the biggest advantages of the five minute tracking update is that it "could also help customer service representatives investigate complaints or safety issues" raised by users following a ride.

We might see some sort of currency wars with trade protectionism as the new challenges in the world emerge. Arvind Sanger, Managing Partner, Geosphere Capital Management I don't know if Trump is going to do anything on a trade war or there is going to be no border adjustment tax. The clarity will come soon, and when that comes we will get short term trading rallies. But, we are in a kind of an uncertainity. Navneet Munot, ED & CIO, SBI Mutual Fund If Donald Trump is going to cut tax rates very severely it will be followed by most of the other countries in the world. I think India will also to do the same. We have to make the tax regime simpler to promote businesses investing in India. We had some sense of what is likely to come on 31st of December when PM announced some of the measures for the rural economy, affordable housing. Those are some structural themes which government has tremendous focus.

Are we not clear yet from the whips whether this will be a free vote for Labour or a whipped vote? The decision has not been taken is the message that I got this morning. There is speculation, that is premature. We don't know which way it will go. In December there was a whipped vote.

Paul Briden 20/01/2017 - 12:07pm Mario is coming to Android this March via Super Mario Run You may remember during a recent Apple launch it was revealed that Nintendo and the iPhone maker had come together to release a Mario game on iOS; Super Mario Run. Well now it seems like that wasn't a platform exclusive, Nintendo has bigger ambitions for apps and games in the mobile space, and Android is getting a turn very soon indeed. Nintendo's official Japanese Twitter account posted the news on January 19 that Super Mario Run will be landing on Android in March. The game landed on iOS during December, and those who browse Google Play may now be noticing it's also listed and promoted on the Android application storefront, however, it's only allowing you to pre-register interest at this point. We don't yet know how much it will cost, but on iOS users could play the first three levels for free, before paying a $10 fee to unlock the whole game.

Mr Levy (who executive produces the show) has revealed to Collider that he and The Duffer Brothers (who created Stranger Things and continue to write it) will still be on the ground directing episodes for season 2 despite all their other commitments. "Yes, we are a little superstitious so just like last year, they’re doing 1 and 2, I’m going in and doing 3 and 4. So the first four are gonna kick off exactly the same as last time," Levy confirmed. It remains to be seen who will helm the other five episodes. "[We] we started filming today," Levy said of the season at large, before teasing when he will be going behind the camera for his episodes as director: "I am going to start prepping right around Thanksgiving and I’ll be filming my episodes through December and January."

Stoke's biggest injury issue is that of goalkeeper Jack Butland, who could be missing for some months, according to ESPN FC's Ben Dinnery: The Potters announced via their official website that the England stopper had suffered a setback in his plans to come back from a long-term ankle injury in December, having not featured for his club since March 2016. Jonathan Walters is a concern for Hughes after suffering inflammation in his knee following the 4-1 defeat at Liverpool on December 27. Speaking to the Stoke Sentinel (h/t the Irish Independent ), the Potters chief noted the attacker will undergo minor surgery. "We are missing Jonny Walters unfortunately, who is suffering a problem with his knee," Hughes said. "As a consequence of that, he is going to be missing for a little bit, so that leaves us short up front to be perfectly honest." While United have one player away at the Africa Cup of Nations, Stoke have three in attacking trio Wilfried Bony (Ivory Coast), Ramadan Sobhi (Egypt) and Mame Biram Diouf (Senegal).

By returning to older forms of political resistance, social activism might also regain grassroots support and find a new voice in the process. At least, that's what we hope. Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orbán arrives at a European Union leaders summit in Brussels, December 15 2016. Francois Lenoir/Reuters Jonathan Rynhold: Hope for Israel, concern over Iran and Syria We should see a generally positive tone toward Israel from Donald Trump, but there are very large questions about what the administration's policies will be on the substantive issues affecting the country. For example, his son-in-law Jared Kushner has been tapped to deal with the peace process . He has no background whatsoever in this area, and we have no idea what his positions might be. Regarding the settlement issue, my sense -- in contrast to what the settlement movement believes -- is that the administration is not necessarily pro-settlement.
