How the Senate health care bill would change Obamacare 10 MIN, 31 SEC

The Senate Republicans’ health care bill mirrors much of what the House passed in May, which would mean overhauls to President Obama’s signature health law.

What Uber's downfall means for Lyft 6 MIN, 52 SEC

Ride-sharing giant Uber is making (mostly negative) headlines every week, and CEO Travis Kalanick just resigned. Is this just what Lyft’s been waiting for: Uber’s implosion? From its start, Lyft presented itself as different from Uber, and it’s been quietly growing.
