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

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A Pacific storm pummeled drought-parched northern and central California on Thursday with heavy rain and high winds, knocking out power to tens of thousands of homes, disrupting flights, washing out roads and prompting school closures in the Bay Area.

Rains, wind lash California as Pacific storm hits

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A Pacific storm lashed northern and central California on Thursday with heavy rain and high winds, knocking out electricity to tens of thousands of homes, disrupting commercial flights and prompting school closures in the San Francisco Bay area. Nearly 240 departing and incoming flights had been canceled at San Francisco International Airport by late morning, with delays for other flights averaging two hours, airport duty manager Bob Ritiski said. A downtown San Francisco subway station serving the financial district was closed through the morning commuter rush due to a power outage, and the city's electrified bus system was halted in many areas, transit officials said. #facebook #Arabic #Russia #markets #California #Argentina #United Kingdom #author
