Uber reaches settlement with Waymo in dispute over trade secrets

After four days of blistering testimony that detailed the alleged theft of Waymo computer files and trade secrets — and Uber’s reaction to it — Uber threw in the towel.

Under a settlement announced Friday, Uber said it has agreed to pay $ 245 million in Uber equity to Waymo’s parent, Google’s Alphabet.

Ebola Wednesday: Duncan’s family ‘reaches resolution’ with Dallas hospital

From the isolation unit to the courts.

There were few doubts that legal action would be taken in the death of 42-year-old Thomas Duncan, the only person who has died of Ebola in the United States.

This morning, Miller Weisbrod, LLP, a law firm specializing in medical malpractice, held a presser with Duncan’s family. Attorney Les Weisbrod announced that a confidential and amicable settlement has been reached between the family and Texas Health Resources and all related entities, according to a press release.

Duncan’s four children and his parents will be compensated for negligence and errors stemming from his death. His fiancee, though, is not included in the settlement.

Duncan’s nephew spoke at the presser, thanking Texas Health Resources for admitting their mistakes and quickly correcting policies and procedures related to the treatment Duncan received.

The press release also announced the formation of a charitable trust foundation to raise money for a new facility to treat Ebola victims in Africa.

On Sept. 25, Duncan went to the emergency room at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Days before, he had arrived in Dallas from his native Liberia. A series of admitted missteps by medical staff at the hospital resulted in Duncan’s being sent home without proper treatment.

A few days later, he was back in the ER with full-blown Ebola. During his treatment, two nurses became infected with the deadly virus; they have since recovered.

Other Ebola-related news for communicators:

  • The Nebraska Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) hosted a meeting that featured Taylor Wilson of Nebraska Medicine PR and Phil Rooney, a Douglas County Health Department resource specialist. The two discussed how the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) handled media and communication when the U.S. State Department asked for help in treating two patients. UNMC’s bio-containment unit is one of only four in the United States. Wilson says UNMC had been preparing since 2005, and the PR department created website content in advance. In August, UNMC began monitoring conversation as “social media started to light up,” says Wilson.

  • There’s a new online site for leading health care, university, and public policy organizations to access personalized learning about Ebola.MedicalNewsToday.com reports that Health.EdCast.Org brings together multiple perspectives from various sources—not all from one university or constituency—to ensure quality content and information. The MOOC (massive open online course) will initially be moderated by Marcel Salathe, assistant professor of Biology at the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics at Penn State University. Salathe has run two popular MOOCs on infectious disease dynamics.

  • In Mali, two new deaths from Ebola have been reported. The Associated Press says this is a major setback, as the fatalities are not believed to be linked to the only other known case in that nation.

  • On Saturday, musician Sir Bob Geldof will reignite his famed 30-year-old recording, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” Many of the original performers on the Band-Aid fundraiser for Ethiopian famine relief will be joined by musical newcomers to re-record the song. Some lyrics will be changed to reflect the Ebola epidemic.
