aficionados will be undoubtedly pleased to know that the contrived “debate” over whether women can be funny was unequivocally settled by two of the funniest people in Hollywood Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Tasked with the often thankless job — just ask Ricky Gervais — of co-hosting for the second time in a row the award show which ushers in a long month or so of self-congratulatory Hollywood idolatry Fey and Poehler were warm yet caustic — and never more so than on the subject of women in the film industry In their opening monologue they poked fun at matinee idol George Clooney for his dating history: his film Gravity was described as the story of an astronaut who “would rather float away into space and die rather than spend one more minute with a woman his own age” even if that woman is Sandra Bullock August: Osage County was hailed as a movie that proved that “there are still great parts in Hollywood for Meryl Streeps over 60” Matthew McConaughey who won Best Actor in a Drama for his role as an HIV positive cowboy Dallas Buyers Club got a shoutout too He lost 45 pounds for the movie or as Fey and Poehler put it did “what actresses call being in a movie” Fey got in a salty dig about Leonardo DiCaprio’s preference for supermodels A bit of gender-bending came into play too when Fey and Poehler gently mocked the awards tradition of a Miss Golden Globes — usually the young daughter of celebrities — by introducing Mr Golden Globes Fey’s “adult son Randy” actually Poehler in a ridiculous wig “in the interest of gender equality” It was an unusually gender-aware awards ceremony one that did well to underscore gently and appropriately for the occasion Hollywood’s still-sexist treatment of its actresses If one of the better ways to subvert gender norms is to make fun of them the Golden Globes ceremony was an object lesson in doing it right thanks to Fey and Poehler For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

in markets where the cab-hailing service had just launched (Source: Reuters) Related News Uber which is facing criticism over rampant sexual harassment at workplace has a new problem on its hands According to a New York Times report Uber’s ‘Greyball’ tool was used to avoid law enforcement authorities especially in markets where the cab-hailing service had just launched and there were no regulations for it with officials struggling to come up with rules for the service Essentially the Greyball tool collects data from the app to avoid officials who were “trying to clamp down on the ride-hailing service” notes the report The tool was used in cities like Boston Paris Las Vegas and even in Australia China and South Korea and predominantly in markets outside of the United States Watch all our videos from Express Technology Uber has faced massive protests in Paris and regulatory challenges in South Korea and China In 2015 Uber was forced to shut down in South Korea after the government banned the service in May though the company tried to restart its services towards the end of 2015 The service also faced regulatory challenges in India where it was briefly banned in several cities Also read: Uber’s ‘Greyball’ draws ire for blocking government stings So what is Greyball Essentially it is a tool used to avoid government officials who were trying to conduct a ‘sting’ operation around Uber and its drivers Uber would figure out if officials were trying to hail a cab and then show them a digital map with fake cars These customers would be ‘greyballed’ and usually their rides would be cancelled by the driver But as the New York Times report point out Greyball is totally within Uber’s “Violation of Terms of Services” and was known for being used since 2014 New York Times was shown documents around ‘Greyball’ by four former Uber employees who requested anonymity One of Uber’s self-driving cars (Source: AP ) The report points out how the tool was first used in 2014 to block out a code enforcement officer in Portland and that later Uber was ‘Greyballing’ other city officials as well by using data What is disturbing according to the NYT report is that Uber “served up a fake version of the app populated with ghost cars to evade capture” to these ‘Greyballed’ customers Uber has in a statement said Greyball is to “enforce violations of its terms of service agreement that customers accept when they sign up to use the app” But it admits that Greyball can be used to block officials Uber’s statement reads “This program denies ride requests to fraudulent users who are violating our terms of service—whether that’s people aiming to physically harm drivers competitors looking to disrupt our operations or opponents who collude with officials on secret ‘stings’ meant to entrap drivers” So yes Uber had a whole tool just to avoid officials who could have cracked down on the service Read more: Uber to seek DMV permit to restart self-driving

advancing to the 2018 World Cup finals despite the side registering a 3-1 win at Belarus in their penultimate qualifier on Saturday The Dutch still have a mathematical chance of reaching Russia if they beat Sweden in Amsterdam on Tuesday but admit that the seven-goal victory margin needed to leapfrog their opponents is highly unlikely “It caused me a lot of pain but unfortunately that is part of sport” said the Bayern Munich winger who after 95 caps is edging ever closer to the end to his international career Saturday’s result left the Dutch on 16 points from nine matches in Group A three

said Robben “We couldn’t believe it was that much” he told Dutch television Sweden had completed their victory by the time the Netherlands took to the field in Borisov where Robben scored one goal and made another in the victory “After the result in Sweden we could not do much more than come out with our chests out But to win 8-0 in Belrus was never going to be realistic And 7-0 at home against Sweden that’s not going to happen either “Obviously we must keep believing until the last minute but I had better say what everyone is thinking It is not realistic to think we can beat Sweden with a
