As Uber's problems pile up — executives resigning, sexual harassment allegations and more — the ridesharing company is doubling down on the driver experience, NBC News reported.
Uber's head of customer support, Janelle Sallenave, took NBC News on an exclusive tour of its newly revamped "Greenlight Hub" for drivers in Queens, across the river from Manhattan. It's "the human side of the technology," she said.
Falling trip prices is one of the biggest complaints on Uber driver forums, the reason why driver Fawzi Kamel confronted Uber CEO Travis Kalanick in a now infamous video, just one of the many public relations problems facing the company.
"This is the size and scale of a company that I would say normally takes 30-40 years to develop," Sallenave said. "And we've done it in six. And what that means is we haven't necessarily had the time to sit back and reflect."

The United States must confront Russia for providing weapons to the Taliban for use against American-backed forces in Afghanistan, top U.S. military officials said Monday.
At a news conference with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis at his side, Gen. John Nicholson, the American commander in Afghanistan, wouldn't provide specifics about Russia's role in Afghanistan. But said he would "not refute" that Moscow's involvement includes giving weapons to the Taliban.
Earlier Monday, a senior U.S. military official told reporters in Kabul that Russia was giving machine guns and other medium-weight weapons. The Taliban are using the weapons in the southern provinces of Helmand, Kandahar and Uruzgan, according to the official, who briefed journalists on intelligence information on condition of anonymity.

France's political mainstream, shut out of the presidency by an angry electorate, united Monday to urge voters to back centrist Emmanuel Macron in the presidential runoff and to reject Marine Le Pen's populist nationalism.
Politicians on the moderate left and right, including French President Francois Hollande and the losing Socialist and Republicans party candidates in Sunday's first-round vote, maneuvered to block Le Pen's path to power in the May 7 runoff.
In a solemn address from the Elysee palace, Hollande said he will vote for Macron, his former economy minister, because the far-right Le Pen represents "both the danger of the isolation of France and of rupture with the European Union."

Rioters took over the streets of Los Angeles on April 29, 1992, lighting fires, looting stores and causing mayhem after a jury acquitted four white Los Angeles Police Department officers of the videotaped beating of black motorist Rodney King.
More than 60 people died and thousands were injured. The riots caused more than $1 billion in damage. What has changed -- demographically, socially, economically and politically -- in the region since the riots tore the city apart 25 years ago?

A judge has ordered the release of three suicide notes that ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez allegedly left in his cell before killing himself last week.
The lawyer for Hernandez's fiancée filed a motion Monday morning in Bristol County Superior Court seeking the release of the letters. The district attorney had previously refused to release them to the family.
George Leontire, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez's lawyer, asked that the letters be released immediately. "The family has the right, during this grieving process, to know their loved one's final thoughts," he wrote.

The woman at the heart of a confrontation on an American Airlines Friday will be represented by the same lawyer working on behalf of the passenger dragged off a United Airlines flight earlier this month, NBC News reported.
Attorney Thomas Demetrio is representing the woman seen crying after a male flight attendant allegedly took her stroller by force and nearly hit her baby, he said in an exclusive interview with the "Today" show Monday.
Demetrio called the American Airlines incident a "microcosm of the entire problem," with "a flight attendant out of control." The attendant has since been grounded.
Video of the incident shows a woman sobbing while holding her baby, pleading for her stroller back aboard the flight from San Francisco to Dallas-Fort Worth. Witnesses told NBC News that the attendant also aggressively took the stroller away, nearly hitting her baby.

Three African countries have been chosen to test the world's first malaria vaccine, the World Health Organization announced Monday. Ghana, Kenya and Malawi will begin piloting the injectable vaccine next year with hundreds of thousands of young children, who have been at highest risk of death.
The vaccine, which has partial effectiveness, has the potential to save tens of thousands of lives if used with existing measures, the WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, said in a statement. The challenge is whether impoverished countries can deliver the required four doses of the vaccine for each child.
Malaria remains one of the world's most stubborn health challenges, infecting more than 200 million people every year and killing about half a million, most of them children in Africa. Bed netting and insecticides are the chief protection.
A 4-year-old girl is already out of the hospital and is said to be in good shape after she fell out the back door of a moving church bus, which continued driving down the road.
Volunteer firefighter Ryan Ciampoli was driving behind the bus in Harrison, Arkansas, Friday when his dashcam recorded the moment the girl tumbled to the ground. The video shows Ciampoli stop his truck, get out and approach the girl, who he said was unconcious at first but then started to wake up.
Ciampoli, a licensed EMT, picked up the little girl, who had cuts on her face and blood coming out of her nose and mouth.

For nearly 100 days, President Donald Trump has rattled Washington and been chastened by its institutions.
He's startled world leaders with his unpredictability and tough talk, but won their praise for a surprise strike on Syria.
He's endured the steady drip of investigations and a seemingly endless churn of public personnel drama.
"It's a different kind of a presidency," Trump said in an Oval Office interview with The Associated Press, an hour-long conversation as he approached Saturday's key presidential benchmark.
