At one point her porphyria was causing severe attacks every couple of weeks and needed hospital treatment. But even then morphine did not stop the pain.

Uber and Lyft may look the same, but their visions are not

New York (CNN Business)At first blush, it can be hard to tell Uber and Lyft’s businesses apart. Both companies offer rides on demand, from a mix of cars, bikes and scooters. They rely on a vast workforce of independent contractors, many of whom drive for both companies. Uber and Lyft (LYFT) even share certain large investors, and now they are going public back to back. Lyft, by comparison, explicitly says it is not interested in these supplementary business lines. “We are solely focused on consumer transportation,” Lyft cofounder John Zimmer said in a video pitch to investors last month ahead of its IPO. “Not food. Not trucking.” Uber and Lyft are at the forefront of shaping the future of transportation, …

The story of rhino poaching, elephant trampling and man-eating lions is even more complicated

(CNN)Lions eat people. In fact, they eat them all the time. And although the news last week focused on a suspected rhino poacher who was eaten by lions after being trampled by elephants, the story may tell us more about the hazards of poverty than about nature taking vengeance against the sins of mankind. To protect their crops, subsistence farmers had to sleep in their fields at harvest time. Lions followed the pigs to the fields, and some learned to add sleeping farmers to their diet. A similarly desperate situation has persisted for many years in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, which is located along the border with the much poorer nation of Mozambique. Impoverished Mozambicans seeking employment in South …
