  • Uber drivers in San Francisco are threatening to strike over Super Bowl weekend

    Call it either the best or the worst timing, but Uber drivers are planning a protest against the company, and the pot is scheduled to boil over this weekend, this very busy  Super Bowl weekend , no less, in San Francisco. Some 300,000 visitors are expected to arrive for the match-up between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, and with a stadium far from the city, ride services like Uber were expected to be a major player in assuring that fans got to and from the game safely and efficiently. But now, that may all change. Uber, which for the record actually serves as an official Super Bowl 50 partner, may not have any drivers available for game goers. The company, which has had a very difficult week already, has guaranteed its drivers a minimum rate of $35 per hour during peak times at the Super Bowl, but even that may not be enough to assuage workers who are protesting price slashes and other alleged injustices. Drivers are asserting that Uber does not pay a livable wage, and it looks like retaliation will reach its fever pitch this weekend in the form of a Super Bowl boycott. An online flier advancing the drivers’ cause notes that “this is the biggest stage we will ever get,” and a number of online threads and forums are providing drivers with necessary information and resources. Related : Uber and Lyft may be partly to blame in San Francisco’s Yellow Cab bankruptcy If the strike does indeed come to pass, it’ll create a veritable nightmare in San Francisco — not only would it be hugely embarrassing for Uber, but traffic might also come to a complete standstill given the drivers’ threat of staging a protest at Levi’s Stadium. Still, there are some 40,000 Uber drivers in the Bay Area, and it seems unlikely that the entirety of the transportation giant’s workforce won’t show up to work. And with surge prices sure to be outrageous, drivers should be able to make more than their normal fare during the big game (much to customers’ chagrin). Uber, for now, doesn’t seem so concerned. But only time will tell how this one plays out. Also watch: Plowz is like Uber for driveway snow removal Please enable Javascript to watch this video

  • 6 Sweet & Savory Scone Recipes for Lazy Weekend Brunches (6 photos)

    By Breana Lai, M.P.H., R.D., Associate Food Editor, EatingWell  Growing up in the South, I was served biscuits at breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Each family and restaurant has their own specific way of making them. Some are skinny and tall, others flat and wide, and some come nestled together like Parker House rolls in cast-iron pans. Served with butter or jam, smothered with gravy or topped with ham and cheese or a piece of fried chicken, biscuits are as Southern as bourbon, collards and mac and cheese. Don’t Miss: 5-Minute Breakfast Sandwiches to Make & Take Even though my mom has lived in the South for nearly 20 years, she’s never gotten quite accustomed to biscuits. She is in the scone camp. She likes the crunchy, slightly sweet baked good, especially alongside a good cup of coffee. And since she is the baker in the house, I became accustomed to and developed a love for scones too. They are still my go-to coffee-shop splurge, especially at 4 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon. So, what’s the difference between a scone and a biscuit? The answer generally boils down to one ingredient: eggs. Scones have them, biscuits don’t. Other than that, the ingredients and process are pretty much the same. Both scones and biscuits are usually made with some combination of flour, baking powder or baking soda (or a combination of both), salt, sugar, milk or buttermilk, eggs (if you’re making scones) and a fat (butter, Crisco, lard). The dry ingredients are mixed together, the fat is “cut in” with a pastry cutter, two knives or your fingers, and the liquid is added until the dough just comes together. The dough is gently kneaded very briefly then cut into circles or triangles and baked. I followed the same general recipe when developing these healthy scones in the EatingWell Test Kitchen, replacing some of the all-purpose flour with whole-wheat and using just enough butter to give them great flavor. Then I mixed in sweet or savory ingredients to make each variation special. The result? The easiest, healthiest and most delicious scones you’ve ever had. Enjoy!

    Reps. Trey Gowdy and Elijah Cummings of the Benghazi investigative committee, after Clinton’s 11-hour appearance before them last fall. (Jonathan Ernst / Reuters) My view on the Hillary Clinton email “scandal,” as expressed over the months and also yesterday, is that this is another Whitewater. By which I mean: that the political and press hubbub, led in each case on the press’s side by the New York Times, bears very little relationship to the asserted underlying offense, and that after a while it’s hard for anyone to explain what the original sin / crime / violation was in the first place.

  • 2016 Toyota Highlander vs Honda Pilot: Review

    2016 Honda Pilot and 2016 Toyota Highlander are third-row, eight-passenger SUVs. Toyota Highlander broke its year-over-year record with 158,915 units sold, and the Honda Pilot moved 122,868 units in 2015. While the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Explorer are top sellers, the Honda and Toyota have carved their own niche—both were chosen as Top Safety Picks last year by the IIHS, and both get high marks for reliability from Consumer Reports and JD Power.
