Uber, Lyft respond to Senator Al Franken’s concerns about racial discrimination

On Wednesday, Senator Al Franken released the letters received from ride-hailing services Uber and Lyft, in response to his November open letter in which he had asked the two companies to address racism on their platforms.

Senator Franken’s open letter, published on November 2, 2016, was addressed to Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick and Lyft CEO Logan Green. The letter essentially drew attention to the fact that a study released earlier this year had documented the racial discrimination faced by ride-hailing passengers.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub, one of the world’s most popular facial scrubs, has been slapped with a lawsuit that alleges the product can cause k\skin damage.

The suit has been filed by plaintiffs Sarah Basile and Kaylee Browning, who are seeking $5 million from Unilever, the parent company of St. Ives. It may become a class-action suit as more people may join the legal battle.

The plaintiffs claim that the inclusion of crushed walnut shells in the company’s facial scrubs makes the exfoliator totally unsuitable to use on face.
