Uber sues New York City over ruled that capped ride-hailing driver licenses

Uber sued New York City on Friday over the City Council’s vote last August to impose a year-long cap on new licenses for ride-hailing vehicles. Uber’s lawsuit seeks to reverse the cap and allow new licenses again. It also allowed the state of New York to set a minimum hourly rate for drivers, which Uber’s rival Lyft sued to reverse earlier this year.

Uber sues New York City over ruled that capped ride-hailing driver licenses

Uber sued New York City on Friday over the City Council’s vote last August to impose a year-long cap on new licenses for ride-hailing vehicles. Uber’s lawsuit seeks to reverse the cap and allow new licenses again.

New York’s cap was designed to limit the number of vehicles on the road, reducing congestion and helping taxi drivers, who say their livelihoods were hurt by the influx of ride-haling drivers in the city. It also allowed the state of New York to set a minimum hourly rate for drivers, which Uber’s rival Lyft sued to reverse earlier this year.

“Rather than rely on alternatives supported by transportation experts and economists, the City chose to significantly restrict service, growth and competition by the for-hire vehicle industry, which will have a disproportionate impact on residents outside of Manhattan who have long been underserved by yellow taxis and mass transit,” Uber’s lawsuit says.

In a statement to CNBC, the New York Taxi Workers Alliances defended the city’s decision to cap ride-hailing licenses, citing the economic crisis faced by taxi drivers.

“Eight drivers have now died by suicide because of the crisis Uber created,” the statement says. “That’s why Uber drivers and yellow cab drivers from across the city united to win the historic cap on for-hire-vehicles — to put an end to the financial despair, debt, and poverty that is literally killing our brothers.”

Uber said in a statement that it supports “the state’s vision for congestion pricing, the only evidence-based plan to reduce traffic and fund mass transit.”

Cramer Remix: This single statement by Nvidia speaks volumes

Investors can trust that Nvidia’s stock has bottomed following its upbeat earnings report for a few key reasons, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday after the chipmaker’s shares gained 1.82 percent.

The first is CEO Jensen Huang’s own outlook for his industry, which he put quite simply on the post-earnings conference call: “The world needs more computing.”

“That simple statement is the main reason why I believe Nvidia can ultimately turn things around,” Cramer said on “Mad Money.”

Following several months of sharp declines in Nvidia’s shares — tied largely to a breakdown in cryptocurrency mining, a gaming slowdown in China and slower-than-expected data center build-out — Cramer could understand why investors might be wary.

Airbus set to scrap production of the world’s largest airliner

Europe’s Airbus announced plans to scrap production of the world’s largest airliner on Thursday, abandoning its A380 superjumbo program in favor of smaller, more nimble jets. In a statement published on Thursday, Airbus said the last A380 will be delivered in 2021. The decision comes after Emirates — the largest A380 customer — decided to cut back its orders of the iconic aircraft and order a total of 70 of the smaller A350 and A330neo models instead.

Airbus set to scrap production of the world's largest airliner

Europe’s Airbus announced plans to scrap production of the world’s largest airliner on Thursday, abandoning its A380 superjumbo program in favor of smaller, more nimble jets.

In a statement published on Thursday, Airbus said the last A380 will be delivered in 2021.

The decision comes after Emirates — the largest A380 customer — decided to cut back its orders of the iconic aircraft and order a total of 70 of the smaller A350 and A330neo models instead.

“As a result of this decision we have no substantial A380 backlog and hence no basis to sustain production, despite all our sales efforts with other airlines in recent years. This leads to the end of A380 deliveries in 2021,” Airbus CEO Tom Enders said in a statement on Thursday.

“The consequences of this decision are largely embedded in our 2018 full year results,” Enders said.

Airbus said it would start discussions with unions in the coming weeks regarding the 3,000 to 3,500 jobs potentially affected by the news.

Australian parliamentary network hacked; no sign data stolen

Australia’s leading cybersecurity agency is investigating a breach of the country’s federal parliamentary computing network amid speculation of hacking by a foreign nation.

Lawmakers and staff in the capital, Canberra, were made to change their passwords on the system after the overnight breach.

A joint statement from House of Representatives Speaker Tony Smith and Senate President Scott Ryan says there’s no evidence that data had been accessed in the breach, but investigations are continuing.

“We have no evidence that this is an attempt to influence the outcome of parliamentary processes or to disrupt or influence electoral or political processes,” the statement said.

Though Australian officials have not blamed any country, in 2011 it was reported China was suspected of accessing the email system used by lawmakers and parliamentary staff.

Cybersecurity expert Fergus Hanson, from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, said it’s likely a “nation-state” was behind the incident.

“There would be lots of juicy correspondence between staffers about who is doing what and dirt files on different politicians,” Hanson said. “There might be interesting information about parliamentary perks that are given to politicians that the public may not like. There may be whole email stashes that could damage one party or another party.”

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he had been briefed on the matter but could not comment on the source of the attack.

“I should stress that there is no suggestion that government departments or agencies have been the target of any such incursion,” Morrison told reporters.

The cyberbreach follows revelations that parliamentarians in Britain were targeted by an attempt to hack into their email and phone contact lists earlier this week.

Cramer on the Bezos-Enquirer saga: ‘If you’re selling Amazon off this, you’re really stupid’

CNBC’s Jim Cramer is warning investors against acting rashly toward Amazon stock, in the wake of Jeff Bezos accusing the National Enquirer of blackmail over sexual photos texted to his mistress Lauren Sanchez. “If you’re selling Amazon off this you’re really stupid,” Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street.” The owner of the Enquirer — David Pecker’s American Media Inc. — released a statement Friday morning denying Bezos’ claims.

Cramer on the Bezos-Enquirer saga: 'If you're selling Amazon off this, you're really stupid'

CNBC’s Jim Cramer is warning investors against acting rashly toward Amazon stock, in the wake of Jeff Bezos accusing the National Enquirer of blackmail over sexual photos texted to his mistress Lauren Sanchez.

“If you’re selling Amazon off this you’re really stupid,” Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street.”

The owner of the Enquirer — David Pecker’s American Media Inc. — released a statement Friday morning denying Bezos’ claims. It read in part, “American Media believes fervently that it acted lawfully in the reporting of the story of Mr. Bezos,” adding however that its board “should promptly and thoroughly investigate the claims.”

In a Thursday blog post headlined, “No thank you, Mr. Pecker,” Bezos claims that AMI asked him to publicly deny any political motivation in the Enquirer’s coverage of his divorce, in exchange for not publishing photos he texted Sanchez, including a “below the belt selfie.”

Bezos and his wife MacKenzie announced their divorce on Jan. 9. Later that day, the Enquirer broke news about Bezos’ affair with Sanchez.

While shrugging off the alleged Enquirer extortion, Cramer did say it’s reasonable for investors to be concerned about how Bezos’ divorce might impact Amazon stock, as any separation agreement would make MacKenzie a major shareholder of the e-commerce giant.

“Isn’t the issue the dumping of the stock by his soon-to-be ex-wife? The stock is down huge on that,” said the “Mad Money” host, whose charitable trust owns Amazon shares. “People are worried she’ll blow out of the stock.”

However, Cramer countered that argument, saying “focus on the fundamentals” at Amazon.

Bezos, best known for founding Amazon, is still the company’s largest shareholder by far, owning 16.3 percent of its shares, according to the company’s 2018 proxy statement. Washington state, where Amazon is headquartered and the Bezoses own a home, is a “community property” state, meaning if the couple files for divorce there, all assets and debts accrued during their marriage will be considered owned by both husband and wife.

— CNBC’s Lauren Feiner contributed to this report.

Hillary Clinton says Nancy Pelosi is proving that 'it often takes a woman to get the job done'

As a proud advocate for women’s rights, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is invigorated by the wide-ranging, diverse community of people fighting for progress and change.

Addressing the 2019 MAKERS Conference, an event that looks at accelerating the women’s movement, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said that she’s seeing more women coming together to rewrite old rules, than at any other point in her life.

“I am energized and encouraged by the diverse group of women everywhere who are speaking out — speaking out against inequality, and bigotry, and racism, and homophobia, and organizing to create change in their communities and our country. Refusing to give in to cynicism or fear,” Clinton said in a video statement broadcast at the conference Thursday.
