Cab Drivers Announce a Looming Strike

Taxi drivers who use the digital ride-hailing services Uber and Bolt have called a strike that will begin the next week in protest of what they claim are excessive commission fees levied by the companies. According to the Organization of Online Drivers, beginning Monday, drivers will stop making reservations for passengers through the two applications. The National Transport and Safety Authority (Transport Network Companies, Owners, Drivers and Passengers) Regulations, 2022, which set a cap on the commissions the companies can charge at 18% per trip, were allegedly not implemented by Uber and Bolt, according to the drivers. Instead, Little Cab, Hava Cabs, and Yego Mobility will be used to make passenger reservations, according to their chairman Justin Nyaga.

Is Time Travel Real?

People on Facebook have noticed a peculiar-looking man in a black-and-white 1940s photo where he seems to be using a gadget that is way too modern for the time period. According to the Sun, the mystery begins in Reykjavk, Iceland, in 1943, when the strange individual is observed around American soldiers who have been stationed during World War II. But this individual is not dressed in army fatigues. He sticks out instead because he is wearing a light-colored trench coat and is placing his hand close to his ear like a current cellphone user. It didn't take long for people on social media to weigh in and declare that the man must be a time traveler. The photo — first posted on the Icelandic Facebook group Gamlar ljósmyndir by user Kristjan Hoffmann in 2016 — was captioned: “One thing that draws attention to this  beautiful picture is that above the window, in the corner in the middle of the picture, a man is leaning and is on a cellphone.”   “I don’t know what to say, I don’t think h

Since semen quality can be a significant indicator of general health, researchers think it would also be a sign of men's overall health declining. The review and its findings have sparked discussion among male fertility specialists. Some claim the findings are accurate and urgent, but others claim the data does not convince them because it is impossible to compare historical and contemporary counts because sperm counting techniques have changed so much over time. Nearly all experts agree that the issue needs more study. “I think one of the fundamental functions of any species is reproduction. So I think if there is a signal that reproduction is in decline, I think that’s a very important finding, ” said Dr
