New York City is lifting its ban on cell phones in schools

New York City’s Department of Education has decided to do away with a ban on student cell phone use in public schools, ending a nine-year-old rule that was enacted when smartphones were barely a thing. The ban was originally put into place by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg under the guise that cell phones were not only a distraction to students, but also a potential privacy issue for schools if students were to use them to take illicit photographs.

Protesters took over Apple’s iconic New York store tonight to send a message about Eric Garner

New Yorkers and people across the United States have united for the third day in a row in dramatic protests following the failure of state prosecutors and a grand jury to charge a police officer for killing Eric Garner: an unarmed man suspected of selling loose cigarettes. People across the political spectrum have expressed confusion, disbelief, and sadness over the injustice, and many are asking how a police officer who was caught on camera choking a man to death in broad daylight could be let completely off the hook without a trial. Garner’s case is the latest in a long string of horrifying deaths at the hands of police.

Many of the protests taking place across the country since the shooting death of Michael Brown in Missouri have…

New York police officers to start testing body cameras this week

New York’s police department, the largest in the country, is fast-tracking plans to test body cameras on patrol officers. In a conference reported by The New York Times, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that selected officers could be wearing the small but fairly visible cameras as soon as Friday, and the NYPD confirmed that 50 will be running by this weekend. “When something happens, to have a video record of it, from the police officers’ perspective, is going to help in many, many ways,” said de Blasio. “And God forbid, when something goes wrong, we are going to have a clearer sense of what happened.”

The NYPD was ordered to test body cameras last year as part of a harsh ruling against its widely criticized stop-and-frisk program, which a…

Uber begins testing out its carpooling service in New York this week

After launching its carpooling service in both Paris and San Francisco earlier this year, Uber is adding New York to that list. Today, the company said it plans to offer UberPool in New York, a city with a lot of people and a lot of cars, but often not people with cars of their own. UberPool, which launches there on Thursday, offers a way to share a ride with someone else who ordered an UberX ride along the same route. That promises to trim costs anywhere from 20 to 50 percent, Uber says, as well as cut downtime for drivers who are waiting to pick people up.
