Uber CEO Travis Kalanick Resigns

The New York Times is reporting that Travis Kalanick has resigned as CEO of Uber. The news comes after months of scandalous allegations regarding the company’s culture.

Kalanick’s resignation comes a week after Eric Holder presented his recommendations to Uber’s Board of Directors. Kalanick had previously hired the law firm of Eric Holder to conduct an investigation into allegations of misconduct. Holder specified in his Uber Report that the responsibilities of Uber’s Chief Executive, Travis Kalanick, be reallocated.

The report also calls for changes in how employee complaints are handled.  Other recommendations include changes in employee policies and practices, a more independent board, and performance reviews to hold senior executives accountable.

No word yet on who is to replace. However, Recode has some speculations on who it might be including YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki.

Selena Gomez Slays the AMA Stage

Its no secret that some of our most beloved celebrities have cracked under the pressure of fame. And who can blame them? Relationships, addictions, mental and physical health: they’re all hard enough without a constant spotlight. Sometimes the consequences of fame become to hard to bear, even for the strongest of our favorites stars. Other times, that pressure will break their outer shell  and give birth to a stronger, wiser human being. In essence, all the bad is turned into something good- something powerful and resilient. Selena Gomez became the embodiment of this epic transformation at the recent 2016 American Music Awards.

“And I had to stop, because I had everything, and I was absolutely broken,” she said. “I kept it all together enough so I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.”

Most people assume they know what Selena is referring to. It would be hard not to. For months, Selena’s off and on relationship with Justin Bieber was everywhere. Literally. Every website, every magazine…everyone had something to say about the romantic struggle between the two. Like any long, serious relationship, it was a long and hard road to moving on. But, that was only one of the overwhelming obstacles Selena faced in the last couple of years.

Amidst all of the media-frenzy over her love life, in 2015, Selena confirmed that she had been diagnosed with Lupus. Being diagnosed with a potentially life0threatening disease did nothing to calm the constant media hysteria around her. People questioned the authenticity of her claims. Some even suggested it was a plight to gain attention and sympathy. As it would turn out, that couldn’t have been further from the truth. Though, the genuineness of her claims did little in shielding her from the negativity.

It was during all the chaos surrounding Selena’s life that  the negativity, the doubts and the insecurities managed to slip through the cracks of her well-built armor. Then came the anxiety and depression that would force her to take actions.

The attention her relationship invited didn’t help her condition at all. Even with the amazing support of deathly loyal fans and equally-loyal friends and family, the odds weighed against Selena.The relationship drama was more than enough to overcome for any sane person. The Lupus was debilitating. Throwing in anxiety and depression to the mix? It was a recipe for failure. But Selena refused to go down without a fight.The months of physical and emotional pain were enough to render her helpless to cruelty of the media and judgement of the world,  but still she was able to see her next necessary move. Rehab.

After canceling 34 shows left in her tour in August, Selena reportedly checked into a rehab in Tennessee. Selena went dark over social media and began to focus on her mental health. After years of a selfless battle fought for the benefit of her friends, family and fans, she made choices that would benefit her own happiness. The result are nothing short of mind-blowing.

On the night of the American Music Awards, Selena came back into the spotlight with a fire that had nothing to do with her eye-catching red dress. The confidence oozed from her: it was reflected in her presence, her attitude and, most definitely, in her speech.

Selena may not have performed this year, but she still stole the show and slayed the stage like no other. She is the same Selena that fans have all come to love and look up to, but shes stronger now. Shes filled the the gaps in her armor. It won her the respect and admiration of many. Though, Selena doesn’t need it.  Not anymore.

The Update on Sacred Stone Camp

As if there weren’t enough of the heavy topics that weigh on your everyday life, we’ve got another. Never let it be said that ignorance was better than being well-informed. In a recent statement, The Department of the Army and Interior put a halt to the progress of the Dakota Access Pipeline. It was the hope of many that this would, finally, after months of endless efforts, create an opportunity for an alternate, more environmentally friendly project. More importantly, that it would put an end to the violence that has been escalating at Sacred Stone Camp.

Unfortunately, that was not the case.

After moths of dedication, physical and emotional pain- the courage of Sacred Stone Camps’ water protectors prevailed. When the Department of the Army and Interior released their decision to delay the Dakota Access Pipeline’s construction, it posed as small progress. Small, but something.

On November 14, 2016:

“The Army will not authorize constructing the Dakota Access pipeline on Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe until it can determine whether it will need to reconsider any of its previous decisions regarding the Lake Oahe site under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) or other federal laws.  Therefore, construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe will not go forward at this time.  The Army will move expeditiously to make this determination, as everyone involved — including the pipeline company and its workers — deserves a clear and timely resolution.  In the interim, we request that the pipeline company voluntarily pause all construction activity within 20 miles east or west of Lake Oahe…”

The statement goes on to admit the dire need for further discussion on the Dakota Access pipeline. The Army Corps recognizes the need for reform and respect. Especially for the beliefs and culture of those involved. The Army Corps moves to further acknowledge tribal input in discussions of treaty rights, protection of natural resources and tribal lands. (Read full statement here.)

Only time would tell if the statement would be acknowledged by police forces at Sacred Stone Camp. Furthermore, if the efforts of the Department of the Army were sincere.  It didn’t take long to realize that the progress was limited to construction’s delay. The violence didn’t stop.

In reality, for the water protectors of Sacred Stone Camp,  the violence is escalating. Claiming to use ‘non-lethal’ weapons has been the police forces’ stance from the beginning. Though, that doesn’t equate to non-dangerous or non-violent. Rubber bullets, tear gas, water hoses (in 30 degree weather) and pepper spray are just a few of the weapons water protectors are facing.

Various sources claimed that the water hoses were an effort to put out fires started by the protestors. The following video proves otherwise.

The video shows peaceful, unarmed protestors on a bridge near Sacred Stone Camp as they are drenched in freezing cold weather. There were no fires that can be seen a justification for the use of such methods. Shouts for medics and help can be heard in both this version and the longer Facebook Live feed. The images and audio are somewhat disturbing.

The U.S. Army Corps’ statement came with a sense of hope and relief. They encouraged the opinions of the community’s tribe members and the water protectors. It was the first real act of respect since construction of the 1,170-mile pipeline began. Unfortunately, the statement meant little to those affected by police forces at Sacred Stone Camp. The statement did not to protect them from the increased police presence. Nor did the statement protect them from the increased violence of said law enforcement.

According to PBS News, the Energy Transfer Company spoke out against the Army Corp’s decision. They claimed the decision was unjust. A “sham process,” they complained. One which sent a “frightening message about the rule of law.” Though, nobody seems to understand the horror of injustice quite like the water protectors. The Energy company claims to be concerned about the people who are affected by the pipeline’s construction. Yet they give no regard to the well-being of those fighting to protect natural resources.

One thing is clear. Something has to be done to stop the violence.
