74% of economists in survey see US recession by end of 2021

WASHINGTON --- A strong majority --- or 74% --- of U.S. business economists appear sufficiently concerned about the risks of some of President Donald Trump's economic policies that they expect a recession in the U.S. by the end of 2021. The economists surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics, in a report released Monday, mostly didn't share Trump's optimistic outlook for the economy, though they generally saw a recession coming later than they did in a survey taken in February. Thirty-four percent of the economists surveyed said they believe a slowing economy will tip into recession in 2021. That's up from 25% in the February survey. An additional 38% of t...

Lyft hit with another horrifying sexual assault lawsuit
Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Warning: this story contains descriptions of sexual assault that some readers may find disturbing. A woman who says she was raped by her Lyft driver in 2017 is suing the ride-hailing company in California for failure to keep its passengers safe. It is the latest case about safety in the ride-hailing industry, and the latest charge against Lyft, which was sued by 14 women earlier this month alleging rape complaints against drivers. In a statement released by her lawyer, Alison Turkos said in the fall of 2017 she hailed a Lyft after a night out with friends. “What should have been a 15 minute drive, turned into an 80 minute living nightmare,” she said. Turkos says her driver kidnapped her at gunpoint, drove her across state lines, and then raped her along with two other men. Within 24 hours she reported her assault to Lyft, which replied with a canned response: Lyft “​apologized for the inconvenience that I’d been through”​ and informed me they​ “appreciated the voice of their customers and were committed to doing their best in giving me the support that I needed.” However, to my utter shock, Lyft informed me that I would still be expected to pay for the original estimated cost of my ride and I would be “unpaired” from the driver in the future — I’d later learn he remained a Lyft driver. Turkos also reported her rape to the New York Police Department, which performed a forensic test two days after the assault and confirmed the presence of semen from two men on her clothing. According to the lawsuit, her case was eventually transferred to the FBI. (In a September 2018 ABC News story about Turkos, NYPD confirmed the date of the incident but declined to comment on the details of the case. Turkos also spoke to ABC about two other sexual assaults she endured earlier in her life.) Turkos Complaint for Damages 091619 - Final by ahawkins8223 on Scribd Turkos claims Lyft allowed the driver to continue using its platform “for years” under a new name and profile, which she says has put other riders at risk. She is seeking “exemplary damages to punish Lyft for its misconduct and to deter future misconduct, the 30-page complaint concludes. A Lyft spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Turkos is one of the few plaintiffs in lawsuits against Lyft or Uber to put her name to the charges. “I have put my face, my name, and my reputation on the line in an effort to be taken seriously — to be heard and believed — by Lyft,” she said. Last year, Uber and Lyft both scrapped mandatory arbitration to settle sexual harassment or assault claims, giving victims several options to pursue their claims including public lawsuits. Uber was sued earlier this year by an anonymous woman from Washington, DC who claims she was sexually assaulted by her driver. And on September 4th, 14 women sued Lyft for allegedly mishandling their sexual assault, sexual misconduct, and rape complaints against drivers. Like Turkos, the plaintiffs accused Lyft of “stone-walling” law enforcement in rape cases, failing to adequately screen potential drivers, and obscuring the true extent of the “sexual predator crisis” on the platform. Lyft has responded by rolling out new safety features in its app. The company said an in-app 911 feature, which it first announced in May, is now available to riders. Lyft is also offering sexual harassment prevention training to all of its drivers and riders. And it is planning to add a feature to detect unexpected delays on trips later this year. (Uber just made its similar-sounding RideCheck safety feature live today.) A 2018 CNN report found that 103 Uber drivers and 18 Lyft drivers had been accused of sexual assault or abuse. Both companies conduct background checks and say passenger safety is their top priority.

Sarah Thomas is an American badass 
ullstein bild Dtl. / Contributor Nobody had ever swum four straight crossings of the English Channel. Until now. Sarah Thomas, a 37-year-old ultramarathon swimmer and breast cancer survivor from Colorado, made history as the first person to swim the English Channel four times without stopping. Per a report in Outdoor Swimmer, Thomas competed the first three legs in around 37 hours, which is blazing fast by the admittedly absurd standards of marathon swimming. Her final lap took more than 17 hours as she fought off fatigue and heavy currents. Officially, the distance to cross the channel four times is about 84 miles. Given the current and tides, Outdoor Swimmer estimated that she traveled more than 130 miles over 54 hours and 10 minutes. With its cold, choppy water and notoriously variable conditions, crossing the English Channel is often compared to climbing Mount Everest for open-water swimming. A successful crossing must meet several conditions per the Channel Swimming Association. Among them, swimmers may only wear a cap, goggles, and a “standard swimming costume” that is armless and legless with no thermal protection. Food and hydration may only be provided from the support boat with no direct contact. In other words, from a cup or a bottle mounted on a pole. Thomas has had her eye on this feat for more than two years. In August 2017 she set a record with an unassisted 104.6 mile swim across Lake Champlain that took over 67 hours. In an ESPNW profile, Thomas said she had a mantra that she used whenever she was tiring: “Do my arms hurt? No. Am I sick? No. So what’s your excuse for quitting? Nothing.” Considering herself at the peak of her athletic powers, Thomas then set her sights on becoming the first person to complete the four-way English Channel crossing. Three months later she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thomas underwent a grueling treatment plan that included chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. With her channel attempt already booked, she swam whenever possible and used that as motivation. “It was really important to have a goal and dreams that existed beyond cancer,” she says in a trailer for the documentary The Other Side. “So that cancer didn’t define me.” In February of this year, just seven months after finishing active treatment, Thomas completed a crossing of Cook Strait in New Zealand. It was a brutal swim that tested her fitness and resolve. As she told Outdoor Swimmer, she had “demons to conquer.” The cancer made her slower and she questioned whether she still had the drive to recover her mental edge. She followed that up with a strong 32-mile swim across Blue Mesa in Colorado that gave her renewed confidence. On the day before her four-way Channel attempt, Thomas wrote on her Facebook page: Yes, I’m scared. The Channel can do a lot of crazy things and for this to happen, we’re going to need some luck. But, hopefully between the preparation I’ve done and the experience of my crew and boat captain, we can get this done together. Everything has to go right when so much can go wrong. We promise to be safe, but I also promise to give it everything I can. I’ve been waiting for this swim for over 2 years now and have fought so hard to get here. Am I 100%? No. But I’m the best that I can be right now, with what I’ve been through, with more fire and fight than ever. The first successful English Channel swim crossing was completed by Matthew Webb in 1875. It would be 59 years before Edward Temme did it twice back-to-back in 1934 and it wasn’t until 1981 before anyone managed three consecutive crossings. Now Sarah Thomas, who dedicated her effort to cancer survivors worldwide, is the only person to do it four times. She is an American hero.
