Maharashtra to set up Promotion Board for MICE tourism

first_imgWith Mumbai as an important global gateway to India, Maharashtra is focusing on MICE tourism for which it plans to set up a Promotion Board in the state.At a roundtable organised by the Indian Merchants’ Chamber (IMC) in Mumbai, Valsa Nair Singh, Principal Secretary, Tourism and Culture, Government of Maharashtra, while speaking on ‘Repositioning Mumbai as a tourism destination of the future’, informed, “We will soon set up a Promotion Board for promoting MICE tourism in the state. The Board will be a one-stop-shop for MICE, facilitating permissions for big conferences and events. We are also looking at a system of pre-approved venues for the same and a Single Window System for hospitality.”Film City was already undergoing redevelopment, added Singh, of which 40 new studios featuring world class facilities will be set up, along with an archive for Marathi and Hindi films. Besides, the new Tourism Policy to be framed will have three main aspects: Project development, Human Resources or Skill development and Investment & Promotion. These will offer big incentives for the industry including complete tax exemptions for 20 years for investment in some tourism districts.The new Tourism Policy promises to completely change tourism for the state, said Paraag Jaiin Nainuttia, Managing Director, Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC). He added, “MTDC’s chopper darshan has evoked a very good response. We plan to start the Mumbai Darshan buses in May. We will have 11 hop on hop off buses. We are also looking at promoting yacht tourism. There are about 93 private yachts in the state and by October 2016 we hope to make some of them available for commercial use to offer tourists leisure trips in the Mumbai Harbour. We are also planning to work on setting up a few casinos in the state with the required permissions.”last_img read more

Poll Homeownership is Low on the Priority List

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News Poll: Homeownership is Low on the Priority List If a recent poll is any predictor, 2017 may be a drab year for homeownership.According to the recent December Financial Literacy Opinion Index conducted by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), only 10 percent of Americans say buying a home is their top financial priority in the new year.A whopping 80 percent of respondents say paying down debts is their No. 1 concern—far and away the top choice among financial priorities—while another 5 percent say growing their personal savings is their top choice.The NFCC cites consumer confidence and more frequent credit card use, particularly around the holiday seasons, as a large part of the poll’s results.“It’s a sobering moment when the credit card bill arrives in January and reveals a mountain of debt fueled by holiday spending,” said NFCC spokesman Bruce McClary. “January is a good time for planning to get debt under control before it becomes unmanageable.”Rounding out the list of financial goals for 2017 were buying a car, which 2 percent of respondents say is their highest priority, and “none of the above,” which accounted for another 2 percent, according to NFCC.NFCC conducted the recent Financial Literacy Opinion Index throughout the month of December on its website, A total of 1,834 individuals participated.While homeownership may not be a top priority for many Americans who are deeply in debt, another recent poll showed that the desire to own a home is there. A survey of more than 2,800 registered voters conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) found that 81 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds want to buy a home, and 36 percent of all respondents would like to buy a home in the next three years.“The survey shows that most Americans believe that owning a home remains an integral part of the American Dream and that policymakers need to take active steps to encourage and protect homeownership,” said NAHB Chairman Ed Brady, a home builder and developer from Bloomington, Illinois.Having enough money for a down payment was not the biggest obstacle to achieving homeownership in the NAHB survey, however. Fifty-five percent said that finding a home that was sufficiently priced was the biggest barrier, compared to 50 percent for the down payment.To see the full results of the NFCC poll, read the entire NFCC announcement.

first_img Top Stories Carson Palmer goes under center during Arizona Cardinals training camp Aug. 11. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) – / 19 Until then, however, it’s more training camp. So let’s get into what went down in an afternoon where the players were in shells.The GoodRight tackle D.J. Humphries was back on the field after dealing with a knee injury for the better part of the last week. Given what’s going on with Bobby Massie, the team’s starting right tackle, Humphries’ return did not come a moment too soon.Andre Ellington was also on the field again, though he did not take part in any of the 11-on-11 work.Carson Palmer connected on a really nice deep ball to Larry Fitzgerald during 11-on-11, beating safety Rashad Johnson in the process. Drew Stanton did the same (minus Rashad Johnson) with Jaron Brown.In 7-on-7, Palmer hit Jaron Brown deep. During the two-minute offense, Jaxon Shipley made a great catch on a Stanton pass in ripping the ball away from the defensive back at the goal line.Also in two-minute offense, Stanton hit Brittan Golden for a deep pass.Ifeanyi Momah also made a couple of nice grabs on Stanton passes.The BadPractice ended with Logan Thomas being picked off by C.J. Roberts. Thomas made a few nice throws, but this did not seem to be his best afternoon.There were a few deep balls that may have been completed but would have been sacks if the defense was allowed to hit the quarterback. That went for both the first and second-team offenses. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo GLENDALE, Ariz. — There appeared to be a more sparse crowd than usual at Tuesday’s practice, though that can be attributed to a lot of things including bad weather and this sort of being the dog days of training camp. Because while the team still hasn’t necessarily beat itself up, there is a definite feeling of it being time to actually hit someone wearing a different team’s jersey. It will happen soon enough, as the preseason opener looms. “You try to avoid that. It hurts you. It hurts you all around. It hurts you individually, it hurts you as a team. So it’s something you don’t want to do, but stuff happens and people make mistakes.” – Ted Larsen on Massie“A knee in his ass every day.  A foot wasn’t going to do it, so I nicknamed him ‘knee deep.’” – Bruce Arians on what it takes to motivate D.J. HumphriesThe InjuredThe Cardinals got a little healthier Tuesday, but are still fairly beat up. Out of practice Tuesday was:WR Michael Floyd (hand)RB Marion Grice (hamstring)CB Jerraud Powers (oblique)CB Darren Woodard (groin)RB David Johnson (hamstring)LB Shaq Riddick (hamstring)LB Darryl Sharpton (hip flexor)OT Cameron Bradfield (unknown)OT Rob Crisp (knee)A Larry Fitzgerald Highlight Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Spectacular Catch Rating: 99. @LarryFitzgerald | #CardsCamp— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) August 11, 2015Up NextThe Cards will be back at it again Wednesday with a morning walkthrough and an afternoon practice, which starts at 2 p.m. and is open to the public. It didn’t look like the secondary made too many plays. This would be alarming if not for the fact that Arizona is very talented in that area and there have been many, many times this camp where the likes of Tyrann Mathieu, Patrick Peterson and Rashad Johnson have come up big. Just not Tuesday.NotableThough Massie has been suspended by the league (a suspension he is currently appealing), the fourth-year pro still worked with the first-team offense at right tackle Tuesday. Humphries was running with the second-team, with Earl Watford — second-team right tackle Monday — was in that spot for the third group. Watford also saw time at left guard with the second-team.Though Thomas has not exactly been special, it still seems like the third QB job is firmly his. Phillip Sims is receiving very little work outside of the regular drills.Troy Niklas, who has been hurt most of camp, was on the field with the second-team for a few snaps in 11-on-11.Arizona’s four-receiver sets included Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, J.J. Nelson and Brittan Golden.Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon did not practice, but was seen sprinting across the field at various times.Quotable“It’s one of those things you hate to hear, you hope that the appeal process goes in our favor, but it’s one of those things you have to deal with. It’s one of those things that when something happens you look him in the eye, he has to be accountable to his team. Tell him ‘we need you back, make sure you’re ready if you do have to miss games,’ and somebody else gets the opportunity to step up.” – Calais Campbell on Bobby Massie being suspended by the NFL Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more


It sounds weird to say it but the Baltimore Raven

first_imgIt sounds weird to say it, but the Baltimore Ravens defense isn’t very good in 2015.Once the calling card for a team that a franchise that made the playoffs seven times in a nine-year span from 2006 to 2014, Baltimore is 16th in the league in total defense, and 20th in passing defense. That side of the ball has been a big reason why the Ravens limp into Monday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at 1-5 overall. Top Stories On the other sideline, we know how Arizona head coach Bruce Arians likes to take his shots down the field. It’s something that could be exploited by the Cardinals, according to ESPN NFL insider Mike Sando.“The Ravens had to turn over their defense, they lost Terrell Suggs,” Sando told Bertrand Berry Monday on Off the Edge with B-Train on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “They can’t cover down the field. They’ve given up more deep passes than any other team in the league, and that plays right into the strengths of the Cardinals.”Baltimore has yielded 26 passing plays of 20 or more yards in its first six games this season, or 4.3 per game. By comparison, last year’s Ravens allowed just 54 passing plays of 20 or more yards, an average of 3.4 per contest.The Ravens have also allowed three touchdown passes of 68 or more yards on the season.Baltimore’s secondary is banged up heading into the Arizona game, with cornerbacks Lardarius Webb and Asa Jackson and safety Kendrick Lewis listed as questionable and another safety, Terrance Brooks, won’t play.In years past, the Cardinals had a lethal passing game, but didn’t offer much in terms of balance. In an 11-win season a year ago, the Cardinals ranked in the league’s top half in passing yardage per game, but were second-to-last in rushing. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo That’s changed this year, and should make things even more difficult for the Baltimore defense, according to Sando.“Their running backs are averaging over five yards per carry,” he said. “That’s number-one in the league. They were last in that category last year. You look at what this coaching staff and front office did to improve run game personnel — on the offensive line, at running back.“And you have to give Larry Fitzgerald a lot of credit for the way he’s blocking, too. I think they just need the threat of a running game, but they have a real running game and that’s huge.” Comments   Share   last_img read more

EU islands should work together on air connectivity issues

first_imgBy Evie Andreou in TallinnEU islands like Cyprus need to work together better to tackle any connectivity problems with bloc’s mainland European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc has said.Addressing members of the press on the sidelines of ‘Connecting Europe’ conference in Tallinn, Estonia, the Commissioner said: “I think Cyprus has done well, they have two ways of connectivity, one by sea, one by air. They use the funds well in the transport sector including improving the modality of the island.”She added that other Mediterranean islands face similar problems as regards connectivity and that she was recently presented by the Corsica and Sardinia their particular issues.“I think islands need to work together better.  It’s important we have a continuous dialogue to identify what the real problems are because they are very specific, but so far the deployment is going well,” Bulc said.Last June, the European Commission introduced a series of measures as part of its aviation strategy aimed at further supporting open and connected aviation markets in the European Union and beyond. It also updated guidelines on the existing rules regarding Public Service Obligations (PSOs), whereby a state can subsidise a flight destination, to guarantee sufficient connections to the rest of their territory and of Europe. The updated PSO guidelines aim at facilitating states to address connectivity gaps, better serve the needs of local communities and contribute to their wealth.These measures, Bulc said, are also aimed at assisting islands increase their connectivity.Transport and energy ministers from the 28 EU-member states discussed these issues at an informal meeting in Tallinn.Cyprus’ transport minister Marios Demetriades said that Cyprus had expressed the need for flexibility in the use of PSOs.“We told them that small states that have connectivity problems must be able to use such schemes such as PSOs, or incentive schemes,” Demetriades told the Cyprus Mail.According to the regulations, in case no air carrier is interested in operating the route on which the obligations have been imposed, a member-state may restrict the access to the route to a single air carrier and compensate it for its operational losses resulting from the PSO. The selection of the operator must be made by public tender at community level. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Minister pledges to solve Paphos hospital problems during visit

first_imgDuring a visit to Paphos hospital on Tuesday, Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou said the ministry understands the problems there and is looking for solutions.He stressed the visit is the second to the hospital in an effort to understand the situation and do something about it.Talking about staffing in the A&E department, he said there is no problem as some claim. According to the minister there is enough medical staff and there are normal shifts. However, he said it has been observed in other hospitals that in the afternoons staff treat patients who don’t have urgent problems.“Our intention is that there is a screening for emergency situations and those that are not urgent should wait,” he said.Asked why the nephrology clinic has 14 beds while according to legislation it should have eight, he replied the number of beds are the ones needed by the clinic.Referring to the number of beds in general, he said “we cannot increase the number of beds in all hospitals overnight”.The intention is to upgrade the capacity, he noted, adding that a letter was sent to the public works department in September, but nothing happened though the health ministry approved the funding and the funds are available.He expects the department of works to proceed with the costing and the upgrade. Two meetings took place with the minister of communications and works in May to help the process along.On the fact that the nephrology clinic in Paphos is now manned by just one nephrologist as the second one had an accident, while there are five at Larnaca hospital, he said an attempt has been made since last Friday, when the accident happened, to either purchase services or temporarily transfer a doctor from another hospital to solve the problem.Ioannou added in general doctors are placed in hospitals by the health ministry on the basis of the workload at each of them.Mentioning patient referrals, he said handling them was up to the hospitals.“We, as a ministry and as a government, have received and approved an additional €11 million for referrals. Unfortunately, not only in this hospital, but in all hospitals, there is a delay in referrals.”The ministry has asked all hospitals to send waiting lists, and if there are incidents pending since August this means they were not handed in.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Roll number Chairman of Nigeria Population Commission NPC Festus Odimegwu has resigned his appointment from the Commission The development may not be unconnected to a controversial statement credited to him Odimegwu was quoted as saying that the last national headcount was seriously flawed He also questioned why Kano was ranked as the most populous state ahead of Lagos Rabiu Kwamkwaso Kano state governor in his reaction stated that the comment had shown that Odimegwu was incapable of conducting the 2016 national census In response to the heat the comment generated the Federal Government issued Odimegwu a query to explain the reasons behind his utterances However a statement issued on Thursday by the Special Assistant (media) to Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Sam Nwaobasi regarding Odimegwu’s resignation said that President Goodluck Jonathan has already accepted his resignation The statement reads: “His Excellency Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan GCFR has accepted the resignation of Eze Festus Odimegwu as Chairman of the National Population Commission with effect from Thursday 17th of October 2013” “Dr Sam Ahaiwe the Commissioner representing Abia State in the Commission will act as chairman pending the appointment of a substantive Chairman” It also disclosed that President Jonathan has approved the appointment of Prof Anya O Anya as a member of the Advisory Committee on National Dialogue to replace Prof Ben Nwabueze who is still abroad on health grounds In a related development Mr Pius Olakunle Osunyikanmi has been appointed Director General/ Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Technical Aids Corps Zenith Produced Water LLC agreed to pay $19195 to cover the state’s cost of cleaning up the hundreds of filter socks discovered in February in the small town of NoonanFilter socks are used to strain fluids produced during oil and gas exploration Low levels of naturally occurring radioactivity can build up inside the socks and under North Dakota law they must be hauled out of state for disposalZenith also agreed to pay $1600 for the state’s investigation which began after Divide County Emergency Manager Jody Gunlock received an anonymous tip A cleanup crew hired by the state removed enough waste from the building to fill two roll-off dumpsters and hauled it away to a special landfill in IdahoGunlock said he didn’t want to get into the politics of the agreement signed last week by Department of Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms but he expressed disappointment at the size of the fine“For something to be an effective deterrent it has to get their attention” he said “Realistically $19000 in the oil industry is probably a drop in the bucket for most companies They won’t even notice it”The state Industrial Commission which oversees the Department of Mineral Resources originally proposed $801600 in fines when it filed a complaint against Zenith in June for improper disposal and allowing waste from the filter socks to leak onto the ground and infiltrate the soilA packing slip found with the used filter socks showed that Zenith which operates a saltwater disposal well in neighboring Burke County had purchased them on Sept 28 2011Helms said discussions with Zenith and an assistant attorney general concluded that probably only $175000 in fines would “stick” if the matter went to court Zenith didn’t admit to the violations alleged in the complaint“They presented contracts and invoices showing that they had hired people to properly dispose of the waste and that that wasn’t done” he saidJack M Johnston controlling owner of Centennial Colo-based Zenith said in a phone interview Wednesday that the company hired Kenneth Ward to dispose of the filter socks in Montana Authorities have said either Ward or his wife owned the abandoned gas station in Noonan Johnston recalled having dinner with couple at their home in the nearby town of Columbus noting they had the biggest house in town “They talked a great game” he said Authorities have been unable to locate Ward a fugitive wanted on felony larceny charges who escaped law enforcement custody in WyomingHelms said the state wanted full reimbursement for its cleanup and disposal costs and to ensure that Zenith fully cooperated with the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s probe into who dumped the filter socks in Noonan and a separate batch found north of Crosby in April Johnston said Zenith has no connection with the latter caseUS Attorney Tim Purdon also confirmed Wednesday that special agents from the US Environmental Protection Agency and US Department of Justice are participating in a federal investigation into the two dumping incidentsHelms stressed that the consent agreement requires Zenith to pay a $150000 suspended fine if it commits a similar violation within the next year“I feel good about the settlement I think the state got a solution that moves this thing forward and it’s far from over This is nowhere near the end of the process on the Noonan filter socks” he said Helms signed the agreement on Nov 19 after Zenith’s attorney submitted checks to pay the finesNews of the deal broke just a few days after an investigative report published by the New York Times on Saturday characterized North Dakota’s oversight of the oil industry as a “slender regulatory system built on neighborly trust verbal warnings and second chances” The article noted that the Industrial Commission typically settles complaints against the industry for about 10 percent of the assessed penaltiesHelms defended the practice on Wednesday“We’ve reached 50 of these settlements in the last three years and I don’t have a single repeat offender So these suspended fines really are effective on these corporate entities” he saidGunlock said the gas station in Noonan still has some residual radioactive contamination but the level isn’t significant and doesn’t pose a health hazard to the town’s residents“The biggest thing they’re upset about is somebody just used their community to be a dump ground” he said Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has favoured holding of early election to the Assembly As

American man has been left in hospital after eating the worlds hottest chilli pepper during a contest in New York StateThe 34-year-old was taken to hospital after suffering from thunderclap headaches brought on by eating a Carolina Reaper chilli These types of headaches are incredibly painful and happen when the vessels that carry blood to the brain tighten quickly and suddenly – it is also known as reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) The man started to struggle immediately after he ate the chilli which measures in at 1641183 Scoville Units (SHU – the scale on which the heat of a chilli pepper is judged) Thats really hot by the way To put it into context a regular jalapeno pepper measures between 2500 to 8000 SHU via GIPHY Over the following days he suffered from neck pain and short but incredibly painful headaches He was in such pain that he visited a hospitals emergency department where he was tested for a load of neurological conditions Luckily for him all of the tests they performed came back negative However it was noticed during his CT scan that showed that several arteries in his brain had constricted – which would explain the headaches There is no real known cause for RCVS but it has previously been found to have been caused by illegal drugs and some prescription medication Its thought that this is the first time it has been brought on by chilli peppers The good news is that the mans symptoms cleared away themselves and a CT scan a few weeks after the event showed that all of his brains arteries were back to their normal sizeCredit: Richard Elzey/Flickr RCVS generally sorts itself out after a while and returns to normal but there have been more severe cases in which the arteries have become so badly constricted that a stroke has occurred These cases are very rare however Its worth bearing in mind if you plan to eat really hot chilli peppers Its particularly worth remembering if you plan to enter a chilli eating contest Dr Kulothungan Gunasekaran from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and the author of a report into RCVS said: "We would not advise against eating Carolina Reaper at this time but we would recommend the general public be cautious about these adverse effects and we advise that they should seek medical attention immediately if they develop sudden onset headache after eating hot peppers" Spicy food is

Abuja yesterday to challenge the various agitations by some Nigerians who have been calling for the sack of the Minister over the ongoing saga In what could be termed a solidarity march the women had asked a pertinent question on whether Ms Oduah was the only Minister who has ever acquired a bullet-proof car in the country The women numbering about 50 stormed the Federal Secretariat chanting solidarity songs displaying different placards with inscriptions such as “Leave Stella Oduah alone” “Stella has transformed the aviation sector” Rita Obu President of Goodluck Jonathan Women Support Group who spoke on behalf of the women had alleged that the entire incident was a frame up She said the Minister was been blackmailed by her opponents She likened the frame up to that of Patricia Etteh former Speaker of the House of representative lamenting that men would always want to push women aside whenever they are found in good position and doing what the men cannot do Obu said: “Is Stella Oduah the only Minister or public officer for whom bullet-proof cars have been bought in this country” “What her male political opponents have done is to frame her up Whenever any woman is appointed into any high office in this country the men would go and rake up untidy things about her for the purpose of bringing her down “Have the men exposed other political office holders who are

work week and health insurance for a more flexible job The ranks of this workforce have been growing along with the public’s appetite for the services they provide like on-demand rides groceries hot meals flowers and house cleaning “It’s not only the consumer who says ‘I want it on demand’ The supply is on demand” says Ravi Dhar a Yale management professor Businesses that use these on-demand workers have been able to scale fast partly because they are not on the hook for treating their personal shoppers or drivers or deliverymen like employees Among the other startups that could be affected by the eventual rulings is Instacart a company that organizes workers who shop for and deliver groceries to users in as little as an hour The company is less than three years old and has been valued at $2 billion Just as Uber has long insisted that the company is a not a transportation service executives at Instacart say that they are not a grocery delivery company but a software platform whose app allows people to deliver groceries to other people who want them Liss-Riordan notes that in rejecting the companies’ requests to have the cases dismissed the judges were also rejecting the notion that Uber and Lyft are not in the business of providing transportation As US District Court Judge Vince Chhabria wrote in his ruling: Lyft tepidly asserts there is no need to decide how to classify the drivers because they don’t perform services for Lyft in the first place Under this theory Lyft drivers perform services only for their riders while Lyft is an uninterested bystander of sorts merely furnishing a platform that allows drivers and riders to connect analogous perhaps to a company like eBay But that is obviously wrong Yet that doesn’t mean the juries will have an easy decision to make Chhabria noted in his ruling that the labor laws at issue were written in a pre-sharing economy era “As should now be clear” he wrote “the jury in this case will be handed a square peg and asked to choose between two round holes The test the California courts have developed over the 20th Century for classifying workers isn’t very helpful in addressing this 21st Century problem” For now these cases apply only to drivers in California though Liss-Riordan says she has been contacted by hundreds of drivers and intends to create a nationwide class-action suit She expects Uber to invoke an arbitration clause that prohibits many drivers from joining a class-action suit forcing the them to bring any claims against the company on a individual basis Lyft has waived a similar clause “If Uber really wants to try these cases one by one in arbitration we’ll do that” she says If the juries find that drivers for the two biggest players in the new ride-app economy are owed for gas that could lead to other standard employee benefits The companies could be on the hook for workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance They could be forced to pay drivers overtime and make sure they’re at least making minimum wage Uber the larger company would also be looking at larger payouts While Lyft has been valued at $25 billion Uber has garnered valuations of $40 billion Read
