    • 722 Words

    This week I chose an article about how car services began to make their apps to go against Uber. Uber is an application that is used by individuals to request for a car service to appear wherever they are with a touch of a button.

We have all these safety drills in case of emergency threats, and every time we have one I can’t help the chuckle that escapes my mouth. However, in Iraq even elementary…

    Concerns of economic consequences and security threats are the most common defenses for those who fear the benign refugees.
