It’s unknown at this time how many people are participating in the test and how many vehicles are available for rent. The vehicles are reportedly new and there aren’t any mileage caps or options for hourly rentals.lyft car rentalLyft’s app could soon include car rentals. Lyft “We’re constantly adding multimodal options so people can use Lyft for any kind of trip. We’ve added bikes, scooters, and public transit info into the app in cities across the country, and we’re currently testing a small-scale rental option for long-distance trips, like a weekend away,” a Lyft spokesperson confirmed on Friday.Originally published May 10 at 11:16 a.m. PT.Update, 11:23 a.m. PT: Addd statement and images from Lyft.last_img read more

Ashoke Dinda infuriated by RCBs reference to Dinda Academy lashes out on

first_imgDinda isn’t happy about his name being used with a negative connotationTwitter/Ashoke DindaAshoke Dinda has been a successful medium pace bowler for Bengal in domestic cricket. His international career, unfortunately, never flourished. For most ardent followers of Indian cricket, the most enduring memory of him might be getting hit for a six on the last ball of a T20I match at Wankhede Stadium by Eoin Morgan when his team needed 5 to win.This seems to have left a rather negative image of the right-arm pacer as a profligate and incompetent bowler. In these days of social media, a stereotype can become popular very quickly and that’s what has happened to Dinda also. During the ongoing season of IPL, every time a bowler has proven to be expensive or failed to deliver at crucial times, he has been declared a member of ‘Dinda Academy’ by the Twitterati.ControversyThis was the original tweet from RCB which set off the stormTwitter/Royal Challengers BangaloreFor a long time, these kinds of references were limited to fans. But on April 24, after Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Kings XI Punjab with Umesh Yadav picking up three wickets and bowling well in the final over, even the official Twitter handle of RCB put out a tweet which read: ‘Dinda Academy? What’s that?’ with a picture of Umesh below. This followed the reaction of fans to an earlier match where the RCB bowler almost failed to defend 26 runs in the last over against a rampaging Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Yadav had been announced as a member of ‘Dinda Academy’ on social media at that time.This provocation from an official Twitter handle proved too much for the Bengal seamer and he vented his spleen on Instagram. His post had a very clear message for those who decided to have a chuckle at his expense: “Haters, helping you get you statistics right. Stop and stare well your opinion is not my reality. So shut your hating selves and keep me out of your mouth.” This text was attached to a picture showing his IPL record: 78 matches, 75 innings, 69 wickets, economy of 8.20 and average of 30.04.Dinda responded on InstagramInstagram/Ashoke DindaThe RCB twitter page had removed the tweet well before this outburst from Dinda. The reactions from the fans to Dinda’s rebuke are, as would be expected, of a mixed nature. Some have backed the bowler while some feel he has been too sensitive. Some, meanwhile, continue to poke fun at him.But it is undeniable that judging Dinda on the basis of a few performances is wrong. The 35-year old has played 115 first-class matches and picked 417 wickets. In 92 List A games, he grabbed 141 scalps while his overall T20 record features 146 wickets in 144 games. He was able to represent India in 13 ODIs and 9 T20Is without any ground-shaking performance.last_img read more

So Many Babies In There Church Shooting Claims 8 Children

first_img Share Twitter via @ABCShrine to the victims of the Sutherland Springs shootingBy the time Paul Brunner rolled up in his ambulance to the worst mass shooting in Texas history, the First Baptist Church was a chaotic triage scene. Parents cried and kids screamed, and nearly all the victims appeared to have been hit more than once.Two of the first four patients the burly volunteer medic loaded into ambulances were children.“Our inclination is to protect children. The thing is, that wasn’t his inclination,” Brunner said, referring to the gunman. “He wasn’t separating going: ‘I’m not going to hurt the kids. I’m going to go after whatever adults wronged me.’”When gunfire tore through the church in tiny Sutherland Springs, killing more than two dozen, the bullets claimed eight children and teenagers who were sitting through Sunday services with their families. It was the largest number of children killed in a mass shooting since 20 died at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.Like that massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, the fact that the assailant slaughtered defenseless children compounded the anguish. Nearby schools quickly added grief counselors.The shooter, Devin Patrick Kelley, had a turbulent and violent past that included a court-martial while serving in the Air Force on charges that he assaulted his then-wife and hit her child hard enough to fracture the boy’s skull. Kelley, who had a rifle and left behind at least 15 empty magazines holding 30 rounds each, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after he was chased by bystanders and crashed his car.Investigators have said the shooting appeared to stem from a domestic dispute involving Kelley and his mother-in-law, who sometimes attended services at the church but was not present on Sunday.One couple who survived the attack, Rosanne Solis and Joaquin Ramirez, said Kelley went aisle by aisle through the pews and shot crying children at point-blank range.Authorities put the death count at 26, including the unborn baby of one of the slain women and the 14-year-old daughter of the church’s pastor, Frank Pomeroy.“There were just so many babies in there. It was a church. It was families,” said Torie McCallum, the former sister-in-law of Crystal Holcombe, the pregnant woman. “Watching them take person after person after person out was so heartbreaking.”McCallum is also a volunteer medic in nearby Floresville who spent 12 hours at the scene Sunday. She identified Crystal and her three dead children — 11-year-old Emily, 13-year-old Greg and 9-year-old Megan.Another of Crystal’s children, 7-year-old Evelyn, ran out of the church to a neighbor’s house. She suffered a head contusion, which McCallum thinks may have been caused by her head hitting a pew.The kids were smart and liked church. Their father died six years earlier, but McCallum was relieved when John Holcombe entered the picture and helped raise them as his own.They called him Dad and thrived in the 4-H Club. Emily liked archery while Greg, Evelyn and Megan did karate. Crystal homeschooled the children, and the girls sang in church, where the family got a kick out of how their different voices harmonized.McCallum said the kids were excited for a new sibling and decided that the baby’s name, whether a boy or girl, should be Billy Bob Wigglebottom — which they found hilarious.The official list of those killed released by Texas authorities Wednesday included Carlin Brite “Billy Bob” Holcombe.By Wednesday, an online fundraiser had collected more $72,000 for the family.“To see seasoned FBI agents and seasoned paramedics and seasoned law enforcement officers, when you see their eyes red, I feel so awful for all of the people who responded to that scene. Because they should never have to see anything like that, especially with so many children,” McCallum said.One of the wounded children, 5-year-old Ryland Ward, was hit multiple times and opened his eyes at the hospital Tuesday for the first time since the shooting, said Leslie Ward, the boy’s aunt.“Seeing the children that were killed. It’s one thing to see an adult, but to see a 5-year-old, that’s tough,” Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt said.Alison Gould, 17, returned Wednesday to the church where she had waited hours on Sunday for word about her best friend, 16-year-old Haley Krueger. She got the news she feared later that night.“I am trying my best to cope. I want to see her really bad, and it’s kind of hard because I know that I can’t,” Gould said. “Me and her mom keep thinking that maybe she’s in the hospital, and they just identified her wrong. We’re trying really hard.”Brunner, chief of the ambulance service in nearby La Vernia, had been at lunch with his own family when he heard about the shooting.“You had parents screaming about their kids. They got stuff in front of them that they never imagined they would see in their life,” Brunner said. “Not really a war zone, because at least people in a war know they’re in the middle of a war. This is just hard to describe.”last_img read more
