(Photo: Pexels ; Edited: LW / TO) In this excerpt from Splinterlands, written in the form of a fictitious journal from the year 2050, Feffer offers a grim speculative account of how the world unraveled.

Before the Nazis took over in 1933, Germans in the Weimar Republic were enjoying an extraordinary blossoming of cultural and political liberalism. Before the Soviet Union imploded in 1991, Soviet ...

Uber vows to delete ‘cult of the individual’ 22.3.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Amid a swirl of scandals, three senior women executives at Uber held a call on Tuesday about the beleaguered company’s plans to improve a workplace seen as hostile and sexist, its search for a No. 2 to help its reflexively combative CEO Travis Kalanick, and ways it will treat its drivers better. “That point” for the world’s most valuable startup includes a bombshell blog post by a former engineer alleging sexual harassment; revelations about a secret program to foil law enforcement investigations; a video of Kalanick browbeating an Uber driver; a lawsuit alleging that Uber stole trade secrets from Google’s self-driving car spinoff; and an exodus of high-profile executives, most recently Jeff Jones, who quit as president on Sunday saying Uber’s aggressive culture was inconsistent with his values.
