An article on an emergent labor action among Lyft/Uber drivers:
After 3 years of pay cuts, these drivers say now they have to fight back, by turning off their apps at certain times, drivers are able to artificially manipulate the Uber and Lyft apps into higher fares.
“All the airplanes we know when they land. So five minutes before, we turn all our apps off all of us at the same time. All of us we turn our apps off. They surge, $10, $12, sometimes $19. Then we turn our app on. Everyone will get the surge,” one driver says.
I have two questions about coffee this morning:
Given each serving has identical amount of caffeine (and other related stimulants):
1. Is a black coffee more stimulating than one with milk? (i.e. does milk make coffee less stimulating)
2. Is a cold coffee more stimulating than a hot one? (i.e. does temperature change the effect of caffeine)
