Uber's fight of California data-sharing rule highlights its bumpy road

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Uber argued Thursday that it should not have to turn over ride data in a California regulatory standoff that shows how the transportation service is falling afoul of officials who could threaten its expansion. The issue, which is being heard in a California administrative court and whose outcome will not be known until next year, pits Uber against the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC's approval of new ride-sharing services last year carried the condition that the companies make detailed data about their rides available to the commission. #Business #United States #India #Japan #Technology #markets #California #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment #author

At U.N., Iran urged to show more flexibility in nuclear talks

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Iran has not demonstrated sufficient flexibility in nuclear talks with six world powers aimed at ending a 12-year standoff with the Islamic Republic over its atomic ambitions, France and Britain said on Thursday. The remarks, at the United Nations, came just after the completion of another inconclusive round of negotiations in Geneva this week between Iranian officials and the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. "In spite of insufficient flexibility demonstrated at this stage by Iranian negotiators, we'd like to believe that Iran does seek a long-term agreement," senior French diplomat Philippe Bertoux told the U.N #Business #facebook #United States #China #Japan #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Latin America #author #opinion
