Genetically engineered #mosquitoes out of control


Source: https://gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/19127-genetically-engineered-mosquitoes-out-of-control
The long-term consequences for the transmission of diseases, the number of insects and the interactions with the #environment cannot be predicted. The mosquitoes used for the genetic manipulation are originally from Cuba and Mexico. These #insects used in the laboratory have now mixed with the Brazilian insects to become a robust population which can persist in the environment over a longer period of time. They might replace the original insects on the long term and even exacerbate the problems associated with the mosquitoes.

How #Uber Got #Lost


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/business/how-uber-got-lost.html
In combing through documents, interviewing opponents and talking to more than 200 current and former employees while researching my book, what came up again and again was this sense of a public-private divide — that Mr. Kalanick had built a start-up that thrived on venture #investment, #blitzkrieg #expansion tactics and an ethically questionable aggressive streak, but that the playbook made little sense for a publicly traded entity.
...
Instead of moving the hubs, the local Uber managers decided to pay off the #cops, with bribes of around 500,000 rupiah (about $30).
...
The fixes didn’t come soon enough. Mr. #Kalanick’s product team eventually improved identity verification and #security in the app for Brazilian customers, after intense pressure from product and marketing leaders. But not before at least 16 drivers in #Brazil were murdered.
