DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Ride-hailing service Uber has begun offering its customers in Dubai the option to ride in one of 50 new Tesla electric-powered vehicles, a stark contrast to the large gas-guzzling sedans and luxury sports cars that dominate the emirate’s six-lane highways. The San Francisco maker of the ride-hailing app introduced the UberOne option Tuesday in partnership with Dubai Taxi Corp., which added 50 Tesla Model X and Model S vehicles to its fleet last month. The vehicles, which Uber riders can select for a slightly higher fare, are equipped with self-driving components.

- Travel books: Delicious “Desserts of New York”
By Spud Hilton - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
[...] in “The Desserts of New York” (Hardie Grant Books, 240 pages, $24.99), author Yasmin Newman has managed to create a “recipe-slash-travel journal and guide” that gives a comprehensive view of the city’s sweets, as well as insights into the people, places and cultures where they thrive.Goodies cover the range from traditional — cannoli, babka and a brief history of New York cheesecake — to modern takeoffs, including black sesame cream puffs, S’mores baked Alaska, fig and Marsala glazed scones and “luxe” Oreo cookies.Newman does an impressive job finding, organizing and assessing everything that feeds New York City’s voracious sweet tooth, but as the book’s principal photographer, she captures the restaurants and patrons, as well the everyday life in increasingly hip neighborhoods where new desserts are being born and centuries-old recipes are finding new life.Ice creams range from burnt marshmallow (delectable) to red pepper fig, while popsicles are boozy and cones are decked in cotton candy.On cultures: In New York, Jewish delis, Greek coffee shops, Korean-run grocery stores and Latino bodegas all signal a multicultural city whose rich heritage and minority-majority makeup is proudly woven through daily life, and also its delicious sweets.Moe’s Doughs Donut Shop: Following the social media splash of rainbow bagels in early 2016, multicolored just-about-everything started appearing, including rainbow doughnuts at Moe’s Doughs.
