- Nearly 2 tons of seized ivory to be crushed in Central Park
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.

- 3 Uber investors ask Benchmark to forfeit board seat
By Olivia Zaleski - Friday Aug 11, 2017
Three Uber investors said a lawsuit against co-founder Travis Kalanick was designed to “hold the company hostage” and asked Benchmark, the venture capital firm that brought the suit, to step down from the board.Battles among Uber stakeholders have spilled into public view, and the conflicts risk paralyzing the San Francisco ride-hailing company at a crucial time.Uber is looking to quickly fill its vacant CEO position, while trying to boost morale, battle a trade secrets lawsuit from Alphabet and defend against well-funded rivals.At least two people in consideration for the CEO job, including General Electric Chairman Jeffrey Immelt, called Uber directors, expressing dismay after this week’s suit, people familiar with the discussions said.On Thursday, Benchmark sued Kalanick in Delaware Chancery Court, alleging that he withheld material information before asking the board to vote on adding three additional board seats last year.
