  • Indian woman who sued Uber over rape accusation ends lawsuit

    By Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A woman who sued Uber after accusing one of its drivers of raping her in India has voluntarily ended her lawsuit against the company, according to a court filing on Tuesday. The passenger, who reported being raped and beaten after hailing a ride with the Uber driver in Delhi last year, sued the online car service in a U.S. federal court in January, claiming the company failed to maintain basic safety procedures. Uber's Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick at the time called the incident "horrific" and pledged to help "bring this perpetrator to justice." However, Uber also argued in court filings that the woman sued the wrong corporate entity as the driver had a contract with Uber B.V., a Netherlands-based entity with no U.S. operations.

  • Cats Are More Independent Than Dogs And Don’t Miss Absent Owners, New Study Reveals

    A new study claims that our moggy friends don’t form the same attachment to their owners as their four legged pet counterparts and show no signs of separation anxiety when their owner leaves. This confirms the widely held belief that cats are much more aloof and independent than dogs, who see their owners as a source of safety and security. In fact, the new study, conducted by Daniel Mills, Professor of Veterinary Behavioural Medicine at the University of Lincoln, even claims that any noise a cat makes when the owner leaves home is more likely to be out of boredom or frustration.
