An unusual way to travel

Liu Lingchao, carries his homemade house as he trudges along Liuzhou, China. Previously, Liu decided to walk back to his hometown Rongan county in Guangxi from Shenzhen, about 462 miles away, where he once worked as a migrant worker. With an array of materials such as plastic bags, bed sheets and bamboo, Liu made himself a five feet wide, six and a half feet high “portable house,” weighing about 132 lb, to carry with him as he walked more than 12 miles a day.

Lyft will open new ‘hub’ in Las Vegas

Updated April 18, 2017 – 11:24 pm

Ride-hailing company Lyft on Wednesday will open a new “hub” in Las Vegas, where drivers can sign up for work, get a background check and conduct vehicle inspections, company officials said.

The 4,000-square-foot office at 7255 S. Tenaya Way is roughly quadruple the size of the temporary space that housed Lyft over the past year at 900 Karen Ave., said Yacob Girma, general manager for Lyft Las Vegas.

Lyft operates in cities across the country, but has only six hubs.

“Being one of six hubs in the country shows we’re investing in the Las Vegas community,” Girma said. “We had a temporary space in Las Vegas but wanted to wait until we grew the market to a good level before we moved somewhere larger.”
