It's no secret that Uber can be cutthroat against its competitors, but a new report suggests the taxi startup's tactics may be more suspect than some assumed. The Verge reports that Uber has assembled a "street team" and provided them with phones and credit card numbers to create Lyft accounts, which can then be used to order rides and recruit drivers from the rival service. The program, which The Verge describes as a "sabotage campaign," is said to be called Operation SLOG. The effort, which Uber appears to be rolling out nationally, has already resulted in thousands of canceled Lyft rides and made it more difficult for its rival to gain a foothold in new markets.
Kurt Busch will not face criminal charges for his role in an alleged assault of former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll last September at Dover International Speedway. After months of investigation, the Delaware Department of Justice issued the following statement on Thursday morning: "The Delaware Department of Justice has carefully reviewed the complaint made of an alleged act of domestic violence involving Kurt Busch in Dover on Sept. 26, 2014, which was reported to the Dover Police Department on Nov. 5, 2014 and investigated. After a thorough consideration of all of the available information about the case, it is determined that the admissible evidence and available witnesses would likely be insufficient to meet the burden of establishing beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Busch committed a crime during the Sept. 26 incident. For this reason, the Department of Justice will not pursue criminal charges in this case."
On Wednesday, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that New York City schools will begin to observe the Islamic holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. The official press conference accompanying the announcement was decidedly strange, with de Blasio and his retinue of New York public officials using it as an opportunity to praise religion without mentioning God, ridiculously over hype the event’s significance, and otherwise use the event to be as awkwardly liberal as possible.

"Matilda" Featured Some Pretty Twisted Stuff The terrifying Miss Trunchbull not only force fed children cake and flung them around by their pigtails, she also shoved them into "The Chokey" for hours at a time.

Danny Tanner Was Not What He Seemed Much to our surprise, we would grow up to discover that in real life, Bob Saget is actually the antithesis of Danny Tanner.

"Hocus Pocus" Is Still Awesome Every year we tune in to watch the Sanderson Sisters wreak havoc on the town of Salem after being awakened when a foolish virgin lights the black flame candle.

No Dance Comes Close To "Jump On It" Forget "Soulja Boy" and "The Cupid Shuffle", Will and Carlton's dance to "Jump On It" from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is pure genius.
