This is Uber's playbook for sabotaging Lyft | The Verge

Uber is arming teams of independent contractors with burner phones and credit cards as part of its sophisticated effort to undermine Lyft and other competitors. Interviews with current and former contractors, along with internal documents obtained by The Verge, outline the company’s evolving methods. Using contractors it calls "brand ambassadors," Uber requests rides from Lyft and other competitors, recruits their drivers, and takes multiple precautions to avoid detection. The effort, which Uber appears to be rolling out nationally, has already resulted in thousands of canceled Lyft rides and made it more difficult for its rival to gain a foothold in new markets. Uber calls the program "SLOG," and it’s a previously unreported aspect of the company’s ruthless efforts to undermine its competitors.
Together, the interviews and documents show the lengths to which Uber will go to halt its rivals’ momentum. The San Francisco startup has raised $1.5 billion in venture capital, giving it an enormous war chest with which to battle Lyft and others. While the company’s cutthroat nature is well documented, emails from Uber managers offer new insight into the shifting tactics it uses to siphon drivers away from competitors without getting caught. It also demonstrates the strong interest Uber has taken in crushing Lyft, its biggest rival in ridesharing, which is in the midst of a national expansion.

Donald Trump finds a line the GOP doesn't want him to cross, crosses it anyway

"This is what Donald Trump gets in trouble for. Not trashing immigrants viciously and repeatedly, not birtherism, not any of a long list of other awful, offensive, mean-spirited things he's said. The line that cannot be crossed does not involve people less powerful than Donald Trump, it runs directly in front of John McCain. There's also enormous hypocrisy here; the Republican National Committee issued a statement saying that "There is no place in our party or our country for comments that disparage those who have served honorably,"

Trump’s Appeal? G.O.P. Is Puzzled, but His Fans Aren’t -

"The implication is that he will take the country back from incompetent leaders and undocumented immigrants. And this is where there is a darker side to his promises to make America great again, one that many critics, including Republicans, say feeds on xenophobia and racist caricatures of immigrants."

De Blasio: Trump’s values don’t match up with New Yorkers’ | New York Post

"Mayor de Blasio declared Sunday that Donald Trump is no real New Yorker, even if the mogul has his name plastered on so many buildings in town.

The mayor told reporters that The Donald’s politics were out of line with “the values” of everyone else in the city.

De Blasio — who is still refusing to endorse his former boss Hillary Rodham Clinton for president — took the shot at Trump during a Washington Heights press conference in which a reporter asked about the billionaire being the only New York City resident running for the White House."
