One More Feature That Sets Google Apart from the CompetitionWhile this is only a small addition to Google’s mapping product, the constant drumbeat of new features and partnerships that Google Maps announces on an almost-weekly basis makes it hard for competitors like Bing Maps to keep pace. Even though Bing Maps offers a very competitive set of mapping and directions features that still outperform Google Maps in many ways, Google is currently offering a more comprehensive set of features. Thanks to Google’s strong emphasis on getting local businesses to update their own data in Google Maps, the company is also able to offer better results for local searches.Given Microsoft’s renewed focus on Bing – and the Web in general – it would be wrong to count Bing Maps out, but for the time being, it looks like it will be hard for Microsoft to catch up with Google. Earlier this month, Google announced the addition of biking directions to Google Maps. Today, Google is also enhancing its maps by adding more data about local public transit options. Whenever you search for a train station in Google Maps, you can now see a list of transit lines that service this station. Google Maps will also display the next scheduled departure times for every line.We have to say, however, that while this feature worked great for the example given in Google’s blog post (“Zurich HB“) and most of the larger transit stations in big cities like New York, finding the right name for smallertrain stations can be rather frustrating.

iStock(WEST PLAINS, Mo.)– Students at a southern Missouri high school displayed a Confederate flag in the school’s lunchroom last week in response to students supporting LGBTQ rights handing out rainbow flags earlier in the day, sparking widespread debate online about freedom of speech.Rose, a 15-year-old sophomore at West Plains High School, said she and her friends ordered about 60 rainbow flags on Dec. 9 and began handing them out to other students in a show of inclusiveness.In response, said Rose, some students responded with anti-gay slurs and others ran out of the cafeteria and called their parents to take them home.In addition, several students shared photos of classmates holding up a large Confederate flag along with comments superimposed over the images.“I think it is a problem that we have an entire month dedicated to someone’s sexuality and only a day for veterans,” one student wrote. “You have the right to fly your LGBTQ flag just like I have the right to fly my American and/or rebel flag.”Rose said she had no idea that the gesture would cause controversy.“I wanted to do something nice for the LGBTQ+ kids at my school because I knew a lot of them couldn’t get the flags by themselves,” Rose told ABC News on Tuesday. “And for the students that couldn’t take one, they could at the very least see that they are not alone. It’s very easy to feel that way around here.”As to why students chose to showcase the Confederate flag, Rose said it seems as if it was done to protest against the LGBTQ lifestyle.The West Plains School District issued a statement in response to the incident, saying students on both sides were asked to put their banners away because they were becoming a distraction. No disciplinary action was taken.“While students’ first amendment rights were respected, administrators learned the banners were used by some to taunt other students, which is a distraction to learning and is not acceptable by any measure,” district spokesperson Lana Snodgras told ABC News in a statement Tuesday. “Rather than deal with this as a disciplinary matter, it was treated as a learning experience and opportunity to teach students to respect each other and different viewpoints on a variety of societal issues.”Rose said she agrees with the decision by school administrators to remove all flags but that they didn’t deal with the related issue of bullying.“I think it was entirely appropriate to take away the [confederate] flag. They said something along the lines of, ‘If they can fly their queer flag, we can fly ours,’ but no one was stopping them,” Rose said. “They did that and said that as a kind of retaliation, and to cause a disruption.”“The main point in this story isn’t even the flags — it’s the immense bullying issue,” she said.Rose said some students were “very supporting,” noting how many religious and non-LGBTQ classmates grabbed flags as a show of support.However, she said, “Many harshly bullied the kids with flags, especially after the Confederate flag was brought out.”“The bullying not only targeted queer students, but also students of color,” she said. “I know someone who was shoved and called a racial slur along with many people that were shoved, spit on, and more. People also stole and broke flags from the LGBTQ+ flag holders.”“A lot of my friends, as well as I, are LGBTQ+ and we get bullied more and have a higher chance of being bullied,” Rose added.Rose’s friend Taylor, who helped purchase and pass out the flags, said she witnessed the bullying first-hand.Taylor said that she’s been targeted online by classmates and adults who have said “awful things” because they don’t agree with her opinions.“I wasn’t surprised. People here are closed-minded and I don’t think they’re ready for something like this,” Taylor, a 15-year-old sophomore, told ABC News. “I mean yeah, the school has a problem with racism and homophobia, but what school doesn’t? It isn’t the school’s fault, it’s children and what they’re told.”“People are more concerned about the flags, rather that the bullying. That wasn’t the point. It’s about kids being discriminated against, due to color and sexuality, which is something we should’ve moved past by now,” she added.Both Taylor and Rose said they’re hoping to make the best out of the situation by using it as an example of why people should learn to be more tolerant.“The main thing we can do is educate people,” Rose said. “Many people are hateful just because they don’t understand.”“We need to normalize other sexualities, gender identities and skin colors other than just straight and cisgender and white. People should realize that not everyone is like them and they should be respected, not looked down upon,” she said. “This isn’t ‘asking for special rights’ either — like some would like to believe. The LGBTQ+ students and students of color just want to be treated well.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
NEW YORK (AP):Talk about going out on top: Flavia Pennetta won the US Open for her first Grand Slam title at age 33 and then announced during the trophy ceremony she has decided to retire.Pennetta did not have to beat Serena Williams in the final. Instead, Pennetta needed to get past the woman who ended Williams’ Grand Slam bid, Roberta Vinci. And Pennetta was able to do just that, pulling away in a matchup of Italians who were opponents and doubles partners as kids.In one of the unlikeliest major finals in women’s tennis history, the 26th-seeded Pennetta beat Vinci 7-6 (4), 6-2 at Flushing Meadows yesterday – then revealed she was ready to hang up her racket, a decision she kept private until that moment.”This is how I say goodbye to tennis,” Pennetta said as her fiancÈ, tennis player Fabio Fognini, captured the scene with his phone’s camera. “I couldn’t think to finish in a better way.”That announcement served as a perfectly out-of-nowhere conclusion to a surprise-filled tournament, the biggest shock being Vinci’s win against Williams in the semi-finals on Friday. That stopped Williams’ 33-match winning streak in majors and her attempt to become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to win all four Grand Slam tournaments in a single season.”I passed 24 hours with a lot of things on mind,” Vinci said. “And I was a little bit tight, especially in the first set.”Pennetta is the oldest woman in the Open era, which began in 1968, to become a Grand Slam champion for the first time. Vinci, who is 32, would have earned that distinction had she been able to follow her stunning upset of Williams in Friday’s semi-finals with another victory.This was the first major final for either participant and the first time since WTA computer rankings were instituted in 1975 that both US Open women’s finalists were ranked outside the top 20 (Vinci is 43rd). Pennetta entered the tournament with only a 17-15 record this season. Vinci was 20-20 in 2015 and 40-43 in majors for her career.Clashing for two decadesThey grew up 40 miles (65 kilometres) apart in coastal towns in Puglia, a region on the heel of Italy’s boot-shaped peninsula, and have been facing each other on court for two decades – with the stakes much lower, of course. They shared laughs and tears in the locker room Friday while watching a video of a TV interview they did back in 1999, when they won the French Open junior doubles title as teenagers.”It’s tough,” Vinci acknowledged, “to play against one player that you know (for a) long time.”And when yesterday’s match ended, after Pennetta flung her racket overhead, she went up to the net to find Vinci, not for a handshake but for a lengthy hug. Vinci patted her pal on the back repeatedly, while Pennetta cried. Then they sat on adjacent sideline chairs and chatted, just a couple of foes and friends.Vinci pantomimed throwing a punch as a joke, and Pennetta wrapped an arm around her. Vinci charmed the crowd later, saying she wanted the champion’s trophy, not the one for the runner-up, then pretending to steal Pennetta’s $3.3 million check.”We know each other since forever,” Pennetta said. “We spend so much time together, we could write a book about our lives.”Quite a chapter yesterday would provide.
