Harrop: 'Bro Culture' companies may do poorly by being bad

What exactly does Uber have to offer that other companies do not? The ride-hailing service doesn't own its cars or employ drivers. It's basically a smartphone app that connects passengers to drivers using their own vehicles. Rival apps now do much the same thing.

Reports that Barack Obama will receive $400,000 for a speech at a Wall Street health conference have produced some violent finger-wagging by populists on the left. "Distasteful," Bernie Sanders called it. Elizabeth Warren is "troubled," citing concern about "the influence of money" in politics.

Bouchillon: What SPLOST is and isn't good for

There are some expenditures just too large to include in a General Fund budget. The cost of maintaining and improving the roads is one example. The state offers a 2:1 match for dollars the county brings to the table, but the county has to have money to match state dollars. So the county can leverage those SPLOST dollars, essentially turning each dollar into about three. Getting a two to one return on our SPLOST dollar investment is highly desirable if it were a stock, I think we would all buy it!
