A Toronto man who took an Uber across the city experienced a truly extreme example of surge pricing. The unidentified man wanted to go five miles at a peak time ― a ride that should have cost about $12-16 at most. Instead, the man was charged 18,518.50 Canadian dollars (U.S. $14,401.25), according to a screenshot of the bill posted to @VoteTheHish, a private Instagram page. At first, Uber insisted that the bill was legit and refused to refund the money, according to TheComeback.com. That is until Emily Kennard, who claimed to be a friend of the price-gouged passenger, posted the pic on Twitter.

"This week's special election will be one of the most significant in Alabama's history. As a native daughter, I remain -- at heart -- an Alabaman who loves our state and its devotion to faith, family, and country," Rice said in a statement, recalling her Alabama roots. Republican Roy Moore will face off against Democrat Doug Jones in the special election to fill the seat that Republican Jeff Sessions occupied before he left last winter to become US attorney general. He has also been accused of molesting a 14-year-old and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old. Despite condemnation of Moore from several Republican lawmakers, the White House and the Republican National Committee have put their support behind him.

(Eric Risberg/AP)A panel of federal appeals court judges on Monday expressed skepticism over the Trump administration’s request to halt a high-profile climate change lawsuit brought by 21 children, which had been scheduled to begin early next year. It called for the 9th Circuit to reconsider a decision made by a federal judge last year to allow the climate lawsuit to move to trial. He also raised the question of what would happen if the courts ordered the government to tackle climate change but the White House arrived at scientific conclusions or policy prescriptions at odds with the judges. Kozinski also asked how the young plaintiffs were suffering any more than other Americans from the effects of climate change.

(“I’m a creature of habit, and fell out of habit of posting there,” Mike Cernovich, a notorious right-wing media personality, told me.) But Mark Pitcavage, who studies right-wing extremism at the Anti-Defamation League, told me that alt-tech companies face several structural barriers. “Speaking frankly, you’re not getting 10x engineer talent with these people,” said Mr. Wilson of Hatreon, using a popular Silicon Valley term for a star employee. Without the support of Silicon Valley’s giants, it’s nearly impossible to compete, no matter what your political views are. The good news for the alt-right’s detractors, then, is that the movement’s vision of a flourishing parallel internet seems doomed to fail.

Until recently, I was one of the hundreds of thousands of warehouse workers who help bring you the holidays when you shop online. But the reality is, we work hard and yet the holidays aren’t delivering for Amazon temp workers like me. Last fall, Amazon announced a nationwide hiring spree of warehouse workers, promising decent wages and health benefits. After all, I was working at an Amazon warehouse, moving Amazon orders, and being supervised by Amazon employees, with key terms of employment largely determined by Amazon. The staffing company told me I’d hit a 1,500-hour limit the company set up.

The early signs of allergies or reactions to a shifting environment (looking at you, heaters) versus the early signs of a cold are deceptively similar. Know the difference between an itchy throat and a sore oneSome allergies can irritate your throat thanks to the postnasal drip, but typically sore throats are associated with a cold, Tong explained. While both can cause a chronic cough, allergies may be worse later in the day. “Both colds and allergies can be seasonal, but allergies are very predictable so you can expect them each year and be on guard,” Tong said. If all else fails, check your temperatureIf you’re running warm, you’re probably dealing with a cold, plain and simple.

Unlike the television ad campaign, the Facebook ads are not publicly posted to the group’s official Facebook page. HuffPost found four different Facebook ads exhorting conservative voters in Alabama to back Moore. The super PAC entered the special election in its final week after President Donald Trump officially endorsed Moore’s candidacy. The Republican National Committee pulled out of the race for nearly a month after the accusations were reported. With Trump’s backing, however, the RNC and the pro-Trump super PAC re-entered the race to back Moore ahead of the election, which is Tuesday.

One of those hurdles, advocates say, is the state’s voter ID law. But voting advocates in the state worry that voters of color, along with the poor and the elderly, may face disproportionate obstacles to casting a ballot. It’s difficult to gauge the impact of voter ID measures on turnout, because people have any number of reasons for not making it to the polls. To get a free voter ID in Alabama, eligible voters have to present legal documentation like a birth certificate, marriage record or Social Security document. Unger’s group has been active ahead of the Alabama election.
