Uber's President Jeff Jones resigned after joining the Company for six months

Uber had poached Jones from Target (where he was the marketing chief) in August. Earlier this month, Uber was searching for a chief operating officer to help run the firm with Travis Kalanick, the Chief Executive of Uber, and that when Jeff's president role was put into question.

The promise made in a conference call with reporters Tuesday comes amid a wave of ugly developments, including allegations of rampant sexual harassment and a video of a profanity-laced confrontation between the ride-hailing company's CEO and a disgruntled driver.

Huffington said the investigation will wrap up at the end of April.

He said Wang and he agreed to work together to persuade North Korea "make a course connection and move away from the development of their nuclear weapons".

Some of those structures include new training for Uber's managers, 61 percent of whom have had no prior managerial experience, Huffington said.

"Jeff came to the tough decision that he doesn't see his future at Uber", he said. This fall's election and the current fiscal crisis in Kansas is driving me to more fully participate in our democracy - and I want to do that in the place I call home.

This leaves Uber in the "fortunate position" of being able to tackle its needed changes while the "business remains healthy", according to Holt. "I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business", he said.

This week, the 5-star rating system was removed from the service in exchange for a "thumbs up- thumbs down" rating. It is, however, still unclear whether the said button is available for all shows on the platform.

Rachel Holt, who manages Uber's operations in the U.S. and Canada, conceded that the firm had underinvested in the driver experience and that the firm was now "re-examining everything we do".

Jones confirmed his resignation, while also expressing his thoughts during his stay at Uber as president. Hornsey promised that the company's first report on diversity would be forthcoming.

The story's headline is now: "Arianna Huffington: Sexual harassment isn't a "systemic problem" at Uber", with an editor's note at the bottom that says, "The headline of this article has been changed to more accurately reflect that Huffington's answers were about sexual harassment".

The shortage in draft compensation would be worth it if the Patriots lock down their third Super Bowl in four years. Now, fans must wait to see if Cooks, Brady and Belichick can utilize his full potential on the New England offense.
