Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driver

Ride Share Driving For Lyft Atlanta

Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driving – Sports Techie blog

Lyft is my preferred ride sharing company even before Uber started started taking negative PR hits because of their corporate culture towards women employees primarily forcing their founder to step down. When I did not own a car, I relied on mostly public transportation and that means Marta buses and trains in Atlanta as well as relying on ride share. I bought a Chevy Cruze last year and now drive exclusively for Lyft although I am cleared for Uber too. Now 1,500 rides later, it has truly been an amazing opportunity to both meet people, see the Atlanta area and places I would probably never have visited otherwise, and to understand this new age, tech-driven business model...

The question has been posed whether the usage of replays, especially slow-motion, is taking the moment out of the sport.

FIRST YEAR OF CENTRALIZED REPLAY A SUCCESS, SAYS ACC

The ACC’s Football Replay Center is a Winner.

For the moment, ACC league Coordinator of Football Officiating, Dennis Hennigan, seems happy with the way Collaborative Instant replay has been used in its first two seasons; of course, not everyone will agree with his assessment. The Sports Techie community blog sure does and believes using video to assist referees must become a standard across sports when appropriate rather than entirely relying on the human eye .
