Mo'ne Davis: Throw Like A Girl


This commercial was produced by filmmaker Spike Lee. In our opinion, this is one of the best commercials of the year. Spike definitely hit a home run with this one, no pun intended.

Its no coincidence that Chevy connected with Mo'ne, since the brand has been the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball since 2005.

The Alternative To Taxi Cabs, Think Again?



Uber, the transportation company that rails against all forms of regulation and safety oversight, has received an ‘F’ from the Better Business Bureau.


The rating stems from 80 complaints filed in the last year alone.


The Better Business Bureau noted that the unaccredited ‘ridesharing’ company’s failing grade is prominently due to billing issues such as surge-pricing, as well as customer problems with the service. It said Uber was unresponsive to its request for “a response to the pattern of complaints.”


 The Better Business Bureau concluded:
  • “Consumer complaints further allege experiencing issues with the company’s customer service, such as having difficulty reaching a customer service representative and consumers having their issues closed despite their concerns not being resolved.”
