Latest Uber news: Uber's latest announcements


The taxi-hailing app is considered both brilliant and controversial, depending on who you ask. Here we’ve documented the company’s journey to a $70 billion valuation.

Disclaimer: it’s been a bit of a bumpy one…


Uber board agrees to push ahead with SoftBank investment, and a 2019 IPO

Uber’s board has manoeuvred to further limit the power of beleaguered former chief exec Travis Kalanick and decided to go ahead with proposed investment from Japanese conglomerate SoftBank, plus an initial public offering (IPO) by the end of 2019.

Investor Benchmark – which had previously attempted to push Kalanick from the board (see below) – said it would drop its lawsuit as long as the SoftBank deal goes ahead.

In a statement seen by Reuters the board agreed to bolster corporate governance within the company following a wave of scandals and lawsuits.

Uber said: “The board voted unanimously to move forward with the proposed investment by SoftBank and with governance changes that would strengthen its independence and ensure equality among all shareholders.”

SoftBank Vision Fund and investment outfit Dragoneer are tipped to lead a consortium that would invest as much as $1.25 billion at Uber’s $68 billion valuation, with an additional investment round planned that would see the group buy secondary shares, Reuters reports.

It’s believed that new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi was brought in to lessen tensions at the director level and throughout the board, as well as reshape Uber’s reputation.

Transport for London agrees to further meetings with Uber

Khosrowshahi met with regulators from Transport for London this week. Reports suggest that while the talks didn’t resolve the city’s decision to strip the ride-sharing company of its licence, there could be some headway.

A TfL spokesperson describing the meeting as constructive: “Today’s constructive meeting centred on what needs to happen to ensure a thriving taxi and private hire market in London where everyone operates to the same high standards. Further steps in this process will take place over the coming weeks.”

Uber CEO to meet with Transport for London this week

New Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi is set to meet Transport for London’s transport commissioner Mike Brown on 3 October, after the ride-sharing app lost its licence to operate in the city.

Last week, London mayor Sadiq Khan said that TfL’s doors will be open for discussion with Uber. A spokesperson for TfL said: “Following an approach from Uber, and at the mayor’s request, London’s transport commissioner will meet with Uber’s global CEO in London.”

Khosrowshahi had previously apologised for “mistakes” that the company had made when it was announced Uber was to be stripped of its licence.

A spokesperson for Uber said that the new CEO is “looking forward” to meeting with the transport commissioner.

Khosrowshahi’s appointment as CEO marks a shift in Uber’s historically belligerent corporate approach, with the company currently awash with controversy over various sexism scandals, including a lawsuit.

Uber will not be issued a new private hire license

Uber will not be issued a new private hire license, Transport for London has said in a statement today.

According to TFL, Uber is not fit to hold a private hire operator licence and will not be issued a new one after the expiry of its current one, as of 30 September 2017.

TFL claimed that the taxi-hailing firm’s ‘approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility’ including its approach to criminal offences, medical certificates and its use of ‘Greyball’ – a piece of software that blocks regulators from accessing the full application and performing law enforcement duties.

Uber has 21 days to appeal this decision and can continue to operate in London until that process expires.

Uber chooses Expedia boss Dara Khosrowshahi as new CEO

29 August 2017

The Uber board has made its pick for a new CEO, choosing the current Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi for the role. And while Khosrowshahi is yet to confirm that he has accepted the role, it is widely expected to happen this week.

Khosrowshahi will replace founder Travis Kalanick after he started an undefined leave of absence after a list of controversies, including a sexual harassment scandal.

With names like HP Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt being thrown around, the decision to appoint the Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi may have come as a bit of a surprise to some.

FTC orders Uber privacy audit every two years for two decades

16 August 2017

America’s Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has ruled Uber must face a privacy audit every two years for the next 20 years, partly as a response to the ride-sharing company’s “God View” program, but also due to a 2014 data breach.

God View was an internal program that let employees monitor the locations of customers who had used the app to request a car. Later, the company’s former forensic investigator claimed that Uber staff used the app to spy on politicians, celebrities, friends, and spouses. There was even talk from senior employees at Uber that the company tracked reporters.

The business claimed that access to the tool was limited and since those revelations has introduced a chief security officer along with a sizeable team of employees “dedicated to protecting user information”.

The FTC ruling states that Uber will have to implement a privacy programme to address the complaints.

Each audit will have to explain the privacy controls that Uber implemented, as well as detail how these are appropriate to the size and complexity of the company. They will also require that the privacy controls “are operating with sufficient effectiveness to provide reasonable assurance to protect the privacy of personal information”.

Security researcher Lee Munson said that with GDPR coming into effect next May, Uber could benefit from the ruling.

“While such an agreement with the FTC may sound incredibly arduous, Uber will probably benefit from a necessary change in approach, which will stand it in good stead for the incoming GDPR,” he said.

Uber introduces in-app tipping ahead of tribunal appeal

14 August 2017

Uber has announced a raft of new features for the ride-sharing service in the UK that it promises will provide drivers with “more control” and to “make the most of their time” on the app – but it has been dismissed by the lead claimant from last year’s tribunal for improved working conditions as a ‘cynical’ move ahead of Uber’s upcoming appeal in the courts.

The update includes in-app tipping and revisions to the cancellation policy, and it has also promised fairer ratings for drivers.

The company claims that the changes were prompted by a 12-month consultation with its drivers. In-app tipping will launch across the UK tomorrow and will also apply to UberEATS, Uber’s equivalent to gig-economy takeout delivery service Deliveroo.

Uber’s rating system – which has courted controversy for unfairly punishing drivers – has been tweaked so that issues that are not the fault of the driver, such as problems with the app, will no longer affect ratings.

Uber will also introduce paid waiting time for drivers – for every two minutes that the driver waits for a passenger, the passenger will pay 20p. This will come into effect on 22 August.

Passengers will now pay a cancellation fee if they cancel their trip within two minutes of having their driver confirmed rather than the previous five minutes.

Uber is also introducing a ‘no thanks’ button so drivers can immediately turn down a trip rather than having to wait for the request to time out, which is currently between 10 and 20 seconds. If trips are declined three times in a row, the app will mark them as unavailable. And UberXL or Exec drivers can now opt out of seeing UberX trips altogether.

The destination feature, which pairs drivers with passengers heading in the same direction drivers want to go, will be available six times a day rather than twice a day, and now includes an ‘arrival time’ feature so drivers can set the time they need to get to their destination.

But the Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain (IWGB) has said that the new features are a ‘cynical’ ploy ahead of an upcoming appeal from Uber against a ruling that it will have to grant its drivers employment status.

The IWGB, with the support of the GMB general union last year, won a major tribunal ruling that would see Uber drivers treated as employed workers.

James Farrar, who chairs the United Private Hire Drivers section of the IWGB, said: “This is a cynical PR move ahead of Uber’s appeal next month against last year’s employment tribunal ruling in favour of drivers.

“Despite its claims, Uber remains completely deaf to the most serious issue facing drivers – excessively long hours earning on average between £5 and £6 per hour. If Uber was more concerned about driver welfare than it is with propping up its own dreadful reputation, it would have abided by the tribunal’s decision and guaranteed drivers a minimum wage and holiday pay.

“Instead, we are talking about ‘innovations’ such as a ‘fairer’ rating system and a ‘no thanks’ button. We say, thanks Uber but ‘no thanks’.”

Uber founder Travis Kalanick resigns

21 June 2017

After months of turmoil, Travis Kalanick has resigned after reported pressure from Uber’s shareholders. 

This news comes after a review of the firm’s practices and a sting of scandals including sexual harassment claims.

And most recently, Kalanick said he was taking an indefinite leave of absence following his mother’s death.

According to The New York Times, five major investors demanded Kalanick’s resignation with immediate effect.

“I love Uber more than anything in the world,” Kalanick reportedly said “And at this difficult moment in my personal life I have accepted the investors request to step aside so that Uber can go back to building rather than be distracted with another fight.”

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to take a leave of absence

15 June 2017

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has taken an indefinite leave of absence as the company contends with increased internal turmoil and staff losses. It is unclear who will lead the ride-hailing company at this stage. Kalanick is also dealing with personal issues following the sudden death of his mother in a boating accident which has left his father hospitalised.

Listen: Uber CEO Travis Kalanick takes leave of absence amidst internal turmoil

The under-fire CEO has been under increasing pressure to step away from the company amidst a series of crises, mostly stemming from accusations of pervasive sexual harassment and other corporate misbehaviour since former engineer Susan Fowler published a damning blog post back in February.

Since then one quarter of Uber’s traditional C-suite jobs have been vacated and many of Kalanick’s closest advisors — internally called the ‘A-Team’ — have left the company.

The company has announced it will implement a set of sweeping changes to the organisation following the recommendations of an investigation by the former US attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. and his law firm, Covington & Burling.

However, at the all-hands meeting intended to run through these 13 recommendations, there was yet another example of the pervasive sexism at the company.

It is reported that during the meeting, board member Arianna Huffington talked about how having one female director typically leads to more female directors. Fellow board member and founding partner at the private equity firm TPG, David Bonderman apparently silenced the room by saying that adding more women to the board would result in “more talking.” He quickly apologised and resigned from his position on the board.

Uber reportedly tracked Lyft drivers using a secret programme called ‘Hell’

13 April 2017

Using a software programme called ‘Hell’, Uber has been secretly tracking Lyft drivers, The Information reports.

Uber used ‘Hell’ to create fake Lyft accounts which meant it could monitor how many drivers were available for new rides and what their location was.

This comes a few months after Uber staff were caught spying on celebrities and former partners using a tool called ‘God’s View’, now called Heaven. Read more on this below.

Italy bans Uber for unfair competition

10 April 2017

Uber has been ordered to stop all activities across the entirety of Italy, Reuters reports.

The ban comes after courts ruled that Uber represents unfair competition for taxi drivers, claiming that Uber doesn’t respect transportation laws.

Uber has been granted 10 days to stop all its activities including any advertising and marketing campaigns. After that, the company must pay €10,000 (£8,533) per day if it continues to operate.

Uber president Jeff Jones steps down 

20 March 2016

After joining the company less than six months ago, Uber president Jeff Jones is stepping down, in a move that was “completely unexpected” by colleagues.

The BBC reports that Jones grew frustrated that a new COO was being appointed and he was not being considered for the position. However, according to Recode, Jones’s departure is due to Uber’s ongoing controversies surrounding sexism and sexual harassment.

In a statement on Sunday Uber said: “We want to thank Jeff for his six months at the company and wish him all the best.”

Uber shuts down UberTAXI in London

13 March 2017

Uber announced last week that it’s shutting down its UberTAXI service in London, as of the 31 March 2017. 

Launched in 2014, UberTAXI lets Uber customers hail black cabs through its mobile app, rather than a normal Uber car.

“Since we first launched UberTAXI, hundreds of black cab drivers have taken tens of thousands of trips through the Uber app. However, in recent months, those numbers have tailed off,” said Uber in a blog post published Friday afternoon.

“At Uber we always want our riders to be able to get a car whenever they want and wherever they are – no matter which option on our app they choose. That hasn’t been the case recently with UberTAXI, which is why we will be ending this option on 31 March,” it added.

In the statement, Uber said that it would be focusing on car-sharing options and even fully electric cars.

Uber CEO apologises after being caught on video arguing with driver about fares

1 March 2017

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has apologised after a video obtained by Bloomberg showed him in a heated exchange with Uber driver Fawzi Kamel.

Kamel expressed his distress at the way Uber treats its drivers, even telling the CEO: “I’m bankrupt because of you”.

“You’re raising the standards, and you’re dropping the prices,” said Kamel. “People are not trusting you anymore. I lost $97,000 because of you. I’m bankrupt because of you.” Kamel then added: “You keep changing every day.”

In response, Kalanick said: “Some people don’t like to take responsibility for their own shit. They blame everything in their life on somebody else. Good luck!” Then he proceeded to slam the car door.

Google’s self-driving firm Waymo is suing Uber

24 February 2017

Waymo is taking legal action against Otto, a self-driving vehicle company bought by Uber last year for $700m. Uber is being sued for stealing trade secrets and technology, according to the BBC.

The lawsuit alleges that Anthony Levandowski, a former Waymo employee, took information from Waymo by ‘downloading 14,000 highly confidential and proprietary design files’ before moving on to cofound Otto.

“Our parent company Alphabet has long worked with Uber in many areas, and we didn’t make this decision lightly,” said Waymo in a blog post.

Uber CEO steps down from Trump’s advisory council

3 February 2017

Following heavy criticism of Uber’s practices during recent anti-Trump protests, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has stepped down from Donald Trump’s economic advisory council.

Kalanick said that his participation was ‘misinterpreted’ as an endorsement of Trump’s agenda.

“Earlier today I spoke briefly with the president about the immigration executive order and its issues for our community.

“I also let him know that I would not be able to participate on his economic council. Joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the president or his agenda but unfortunately it has been misinterpreted to be exactly that,” said Kalanick in an email to Uber employees obtained by the Guardian.

#DeleteUber leads to more than 200,000 people to delete their Uber accounts

All passengers need to do is request an uberX using the standard consumer-facing mobile app.

Uber employees reportedly caught spying on celebrities and former partners

13 December 2016

According to reports, Uber employees have been spying on celebrities and former partners. Uber staff used its ‘God’s View’ feature to monitor the movements of “high-profile politicians, celebrities and even personal acquaintances of Uber employees, including ex-boyfriends/girlfriends, and ex-spouses”, wrote Samuel Ward Spangenberg’s, Uber’s former forensic investigator. Earlier this year Spangenberg was fired from Uber over age discrimination.

Uber told Reveal in a statement: “we have hundreds of security and privacy experts working around the clock to protect our data. This includes enforcing to authorised employees solely for purposes of their job responsibilities, and all potential violations are quickly and thoroughly investigated.” Uber also said that its “God View” tool no longer existed, instead opting for an internal tool called “Heaven View”.

Uber’s self-driving truck Otto makes its first delivery

26 October 2016

This image data will most likely aid Uber’s driverless cars ambitions.

Uber to launches self-driving car pickups in Pittsburgh

14 September 2016

During an interview with Bloomberg last month, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick revealed that it will deploy around 100 ‘driverless cars’ in Pittsburgh. 

Each vehicle will be fitted with self-driving capabilities and be staffed by one engineer, designed to take control of the car if needed and a co-pilot to note its progress, with the addition of a computer to record trips and map their data.

This move comes after Uber acquired Otto, a startup aiming to deliver autonomy to lorries and trucks. Numerous reports have suggested Uber may use these capabilities in its own driverless car plan, or potentially its own driverless lorry business.

Uber takes legal action over TfL’s plan to force drivers to take written English test

18 August 2016

Uber is taking legal action against London’s transport authority TFL over its plans to force Uber drivers to pass a written exam in English. 

The legal battle centres on TFL’s new rules for private hire drivers that require people from non-English speaking countries to take (and pass) a mandatory written English test costing £200.

In addition to this, Uber has taken issue with TfL’s rule that drivers must be covered by commercial insurance during out-of-work hours.

Uber and Lyft business model faces challenge over driver status

11 March 2015

The two companies want to classify their drivers as contractors rather than employees, which means they are not subject to employment protection law.

In separate cases, two federal judges said the status of the companies’ drivers will need to be decided by juries. If the drivers are considered employees, they could be entitled to minimum wages and any tips that customers pay, as well as other benefits. In that sense, the case is seen as a legal test that could affect other companies in the “sharing economy.”

Buying Uber might give Google a ride into the future

3 February 2015

Google has already invested at least $258 million into Uber but there are a few reasons why a complete buyout makes perfect sense.

Uber announced the creation of the “Uber Advanced Technologies Centre” in Pittsburgh through a partnership with Carnegie Mellon University, which will focus on long-term technology in the areas of mapping, vehicle safety and “autonomy technology.”

Can Uber still be classed as a startup?

19 January 2015

Can Uber still be classed as a startup if CEO Travis Kalanick successfully creates 50,000 jobs across Europe this year? The company believes it can, but others aren’t so sure. 

Many of the world’s largest technology companies, including Google and Facebook, still consider themselves to be startups in one sense or another. Indeed, they see being a startup as more of a state of mentality as opposed to how old the company is, how large its revenues are or how many staff it employs. 

When asked if Uber is still a startup, a spokesperson for the company said: “I have not heard otherwise.”

Uber gives Boston the gift of data

13 January 2015 

Boston city officials will be the first to dip their fingers into Uber’s pot of data, under new plans laid out by the mobile car-summoning service.

The effort, Uber says, is geared toward city planning in areas that include managing urban growth as well as improving traffic flows and congestion. By seeing how residents travel across a city, for instance, municipalities might have better information for creating or reducing parking zones, Uber says. Uber’s data would add to the trip records from traditional taxi and other car service providers that local regulators already receive.

Uber looks to hire hundreds of people globally but just 13 in UK

6 January 2015

Uber is expanding aggressively worldwide but it is clearly chasing some markets more than others. Data released at the end of last year by data analysis firm Silk suggests that Uber is particularly keen on growing its operations in Asia.

Uber wants to recruit 144 non-drivers in Asia, 81 in Europe, 29 in South America, 28 in Oceania, 17 in Africa and six in the Middle East, according to data sent to Techworld at the end of December.

In the UK, Uber is recruiting for 13 positions, with seven of those falling under operations, two under local marketing and support and two under public policy and communication. There are no engineering positions being advertised in the UK, despite the well-established engineering communities around clusters like London’s Silicon Roundabout and Cambridge.

‘Arrogant’ Uber needs to mature before going public, says VC

9 December 2014

Uber will need to change its tactics if it is going to become a public company, a US venture capitalist warned. 

Fred Wilson, managing partner at New York-headquartered Union Square Ventures, said Uber needs to ditch its “arrogant” and “ruthless” approach if it wants to go public and realise its $40 billion valuation.

Describing Uber’s business model at the Le Web conference in Paris, the seasoned investor said: “Its ruthless execution combined with a swagger and an arrogance that is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The ability to execute comes from that arrogance and swagger.

“But to become a public company they need to figure out how to become more mature.”

The UK government today launched a review of the “sharing economy” in a bid to understand the economic potential and social issues that are generated when people share products and services over the internet.

The review, initiated by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, will look at the impacts of fast-growing companies like Airbnb, which allows people to rent out other people’s rooms or homes, and Uber, which allows car-owners to give others a life via an app.

Rivalry between Uber and Lyft gets ugly

13 August 2014

Uber and Lyft are slogging it out in the nascent market for on-demand transportation. Competition between the two was already fierce, but now they each claim the other is trying to sabotage their business.

Lyft said that roughly 180 employees at Uber had ordered and then cancelled thousands of Lyft rides since October, slowing its service and causing lost fares. “It’s unfortunate for affected community members that they have used these tactics,” a Lyft spokeswoman said at the time.

6 May 2014

An intriguing feature that lets people find out how long they’d have to wait for an Uber ride is one of the new navigation tools in Google Maps’ mobile app.

Uber ride-sharing service hit by Brussels court ban

15 April 2014

A Brussels court has banned Uber from operating its ride hailing service in the city because its drivers don’t have a taxi license, local media reported Tuesday. If it flouts the ban, Uber must pay a penalty of €10,000 (US$13,800) per violation.

Uber launched its ride sharing service UberPop in Brussels in February, allowing users to book a ride from their smartphone for a fare of €0.35 per minute and €0.80 per kilometer, with a minimum fare of €4, according to Uber’s site. 

The fares are about a fifth less than typical Brussels taxi fares. The drivers are independent individuals that have held a valid drivers license for at least three years and that were vetted by the company.

7 April 2014

Uber rolled out a new service on Monday called Rush, which lets people order pickup and delivery of packages using the Uber app. It’s initially available only south of 110th Street in Manhattan, but Uber says it will expand that coverage quickly. If the service is successful, presumably it will bring it to other cities as well.

  1. I always learn so much reading this site… especially the comments section. Is there any truth to there being two different ‘types’ of helmets in that one is a single hit/ single save and the other can sustain multiple impacts and still be considered viable?

  2. something nasty about me at school and I knocked their lights out – that kind of put the rest off I guess? Probably not the best way to deal with this kind of thing, but it worked for me. What I like about you Sheena is your big heart. And I am quite frankly appaled that your “friends” didn’t stand up for you! That kind of shit would not have flown where I come from.

  3. !!!I think it is very important for librarians/catalogers not to cede the ground of metadata to either non-professionals or the computer science community and take pro-active steps to provide guidance for applying metadata in which we draw on the rich history and employ the reliable practices of traditional cataloging.

  4. I am a student of Information and management technology.I need a loan to start an online marketing biz to get some money to finance my education.please help me.I need $2200 for this and i promise to pay you back as i start making profit.Thank you.

  6. Monday, July 30, 2012 – 6:11 pm This is so fabulous, Christy! And the numbers speak for themselves.  SO glad your dad is doing better, and still drinking those green smoothies! I've read the post about not drinking smoothies or juices, and I also disagree with them.  When we chew our food, we break it up, just like the blender does when we blend it. As long as we mix each mouthful with lots of saliva, there seems to be no logical reason why that mouthful is any less healthful than one we've chewed to the same point.

  7. Applause for persevering, and sticking to the stories of your heart, Normandie! Thanks for lighting the way with a hardwon success story! Wishing you the best moving forward! And thanks for stopping by, reading and commenting!

  8. “Valahányszor elindulsz otthonról, emeld fel a fejed, és szívd tele a tüdÅ‘d levegÅ‘vel, idd be a napfényt, és köszöntsd mosolyogva a barátaidat. Ne félj attól, hogy félreértenek, és egy pillanatig se törÅ‘dj az ellenségeiddel. Döntsd el határozottan mi a szándékod, aztán pedig egyenesen törj a cél felé. Képzeld önmagadat annak a tehetséges, komoly, hasznos embernek, aki lenni akarsz, és ez a gondolat óráról órára jobban átalakít majd, hogy saját eszményedet megközelítsd … A gondolkozás: alkotás … Olyanokká leszünk, amilyenekké szívünk mélyén lenni szeretnénk.”

  9. This is a question I wish someone would send to Apple.The ONLY reason that Mac and Linux don’t get as many viruses is because viruses are created to cause the most havoc. So, who do you write viruses for? Windows (90%+ of the computer operating systems). It isn’t that Mac and Linux OS are more “bullet proof”, it is that no one bothers to write viruses for them.

  10. What a terrific, thought-provoking production! Moments that made me cringe, laugh and think in succession. My odd reaction to the Tiger came to me in the Second Act – I thought of Zero Mostel’s Tevye conversations with God – bargaining, cajoling, complaining. Most engaging dialogue with God since Tevye.

  11. Clearly the most fun part is holding the work in progress up to light to check for gaps in the gutta, then going over and over and over and over all the bits, then checking again and finding bits you missed and going over those.Then painting the whole banner and having no problems.Then DROPPING A WET BRUSH ON IT.

  14. the warrior bard,”Tho’ all the world betrays thee,One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,One faithful harp shall praise thee!” Can this really be settled without armed conflict? I hope it can but I am starting to think maybe it cannot.Having said that let’s not lose sight of the fact that in this country the highest loyalty belongs to the Constitution. I mean the written one not the living, make it up as you go along one.

  15. A journey to The Resistance begins with these single steps.Kudos to all involved for showing that the survival instincts and natural foresight has not vanished from the EU.We all need to work in our own regions for this same aim: freedom from theocratic tyranny.

  16. that, permit me inform you just what did do the job. The authoring is certainly rather engaging and that is most likely why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can certainly notice the jumps in reasoning you make, I am not sure of how you appear to unite the ideas which in turn help to make your conclusion. For the moment I shall subscribe to your issue however wish in the foreseeable future you link your dots better.

Creo que es el puente Silva, y lanzarme al vacío sin dudarlo.

  18. Hva mener du egentlig Nils Trana? Hva er lokal sosial og helsemessig sikkerhet? Sosial sikkerhet? Skal staten garantere arbeidsplasser i en by? Er det sosial sikkerhet? Helsemessig sikkerhet? Er det bedre med mange små sykehus enn færre større? Har man større helsemessig sikkerhet ved et lite sykehus enn et stort?Hva er Venstre sin linje i slike saker? Og hvordan er denne fundert i partiets prinsipprogram?

  19. Christine,I’m reading your post with great interest as I watched a similar report on BBC Wales and the picture shown here was of my great grandfather William Arthur Lloyd. Can I assume we are related? I know the picture came from Lesley Woodbridge (also on this forum) who is another great grand child. I would be great to hear from you as we (my close family) had no idea of Williams place of death or the circumstances. Please leave a reply.

  21. Good to see such a big site make a go of it.It sounds so petty but obviously I’m not alone. Why use strict? Why? If it won’t validate (and you know it won’t validate) then don’t use it. It would seem to make more sense to try and code to the standard you are trying to achive and use the doctype that you can get a passing grade on.

  23. I made a $10 donation today strictly in honor of the fact that you have GREAT taste in music. So far I can thank you for the following: Pilot Season, Take the Skinhead’s Bowling, La Poupee, Stop Breakin Down and now I can happily add Part of Your Body is Made Out of Rock–and accordingly 10 bucks to your coffers. Keep up the great work Sam!

  24. Whoever did this … Whoever did this preview is an idiot. Not being able to change your class forces you to strategically build your team prematch (for comp play.) not for pubs I guess. However it is not an issue. The last thing I want to see is everyone switching to their faggy pentagun just because every other is using one.

  25. The gatherings are a great idea, as long as they stay grassroots. Youtube should promote, and attend. Youtube should also use some muscle to secure some discounts for users, like food, and hotel. A couple of smaller events, and a couple of larger ones would be good. One in Dallas would be great. Running it with the A.F.I. festival would be cool. Hell, why not run it in Austin with SXSW.

  29. I disagree. It only takes a person who understands they have no right to judge this woman. This is her life and her pain, and no one else on the planet knows exactly what she’s going through. She is a passionate person, she loves fiercely (one can only imagine the depth of her pain) and, by the amazing things she is creating out of her personal hell, she has proven to be a force of nature.I feel lucky that I can come and read this blog. Maya and Ronan are changing the world.

  30. Na světě pravděpodobně neexistuje nic, co by nebylo možné použít v útočné strategii. I fakt, že se u nás radar nepostaví, může být využit v útočné strategii.

  31. The next Toyota Prius will be lighter and more self-satisfied than any previous model. Due to roll out for the 2015 model year, the next Prius will also, according to loose-lipped insiders, sport a much more streamlined design that will allow it to zip along the roads more efficiently than any other Prius ever has, leading to lower fuel costs and cost of ownership.

  32. July 12, 2009 – 9:29 am Yes, I agree with this change.It will help them to fight against spam, I have seen many useless answers posted just for the traffic to their own web sites. These people are not participating in the community and they are also not helping others in any way, in fact they are confusing.I hope this change will yield some positive results.

  33. It's up to We The People. They (MSM,congress, courts, FBI) all know the obvious. BO is a fraud and Ineligible. Without a massive ground swell of Americans who will no longer tolerate the theft of our nation and our Constitution, the coverup will continue. We need to be much more vocal, well informed educators on this issue to enlighten our fellow citizens and open their eyes. Possible action….If WND would organize a march on D.C. on this issue I would certainly be there as would many many others…..A million people in D.C.

It's been so long that I don't remember my first erotica read, but I sure do remember the first time I read Wolf Tales. Wow!

  41. I fear for OWS, because they don’t understand Monetary Sovereignty. So they are in danger of being bogged down in discussions of, “How will you pay for that?” every time they make a demand.I have urged them first to learn Monetary Sovereignty, then teach it to America. Once that is accomplished, the rest will follow naturally.Rodger Malcolm Mitchell

Kudos on a rare trilogy where all three films were very good efforts.Distracting: Bane having the voice of Sean Connery, or at least a comedian’s Sean Connery impersonation.

  52. Hi all, Regarding the submission format, I have to agree with Anon 5 and Russell – I definitely prefer the usual single-column format. From the submission perspective, my co-authors and I had to spend several extra hours formatting the paper. Certainly, we would have preferred to spend this time polishing the content. From the reviewer perspective, the two-column format is harder to read. I am a (big) fan of most of the changes introduced this STOC (two-tiered committee, itemized and well-defined coi rules, etc). But as far as the submission format goes, I'd vote for going back to single columns.

Of the hundreds of on the internet pharmacies cvs pharmacy 3rd street operational in the nation, only a few are genuine and have the required licenses. As discussed before the certificate for marketing medicines is offered by the rural authorities. So the first thing one ought to do is to inspect whether the drug store is signed up and also has the required licenses. If indeed, the certificate as well as enrollment number ought to be plainly shown on the Canadian pharmacy online internet site.
