HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission this morning approved emergency applications for ride-share companies Lyft and Uber to operate in Allegheny County.

The vote by the five commissioners was unanimous.

The agency’s Bureau of Technical Utility Services recommended approving the applications, even though the PUC’s Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement had previously recommended denial.

A panel of administrative law judges with the PUC issued a cease-and-desist order for both companies July 1, but neither was deterred. Despite proposed fines of $1,000 per day and citations and fines against individual drivers, the companies have continued to operate.

Both companies have formal applications to begin experimental service in Pennsylvania which are still pending.

5 Freaky things to do with your girlfriend

5 Freaky things to do with your girlfriend

If you’re currently seeing someone, then you almost certainly wish to know steps to make the relationship as long lasting as possible – maybe even permanently. Romantic relationships are fun and fascinating, but the scope of them can be terrifying. That is why people are constantly looking for tips on how to make their marriage last or steps to make their union stronger.

And, of course, you’ve heard about the most common piece of advice: communicate. Be genuine with one another. Support the other person through heavy and thin. Venture out and do more than simply visit a movie theatre and get dinner. Experience new things collectively. Hook up more. Cuddle a whole lot.
Those of you who are single or in a relationship would wonder what things he or she would do to their partner. Here are 5 freaky things to do with your beloved girlfriend!

1.Do Sexy Dances.

One of the freaky things that some lovers do is ‘sexy’ dances. The issue with that one would be that the dances are sometimes less often so sexy. And there’s also rare occasions where they are not even considered dancing.
They’re similar to spontaneous bodily activities or “spasms”. But, hey, if your girlfriend thinks it’s hot then that is all that counts, right?

2.You lick one another.

When you initially started going out, you were worried lay a finger on each other. But you dived over those worries and touched. You then hugged. And you smooched. To finish, you made out with her. Also right now you are mutually in a long-term romantic relationship, you’ve even licked each other. Yup, such as a duo of pups, couples exactly would lick one another. There is absolutely no controlled explanation for this completely strange thing; instead, it’s just something we feel compelled to do.

You may see your girlfriend, realize you love her and realize once again how hot she is, and both of you might just like licking each other. Hey, it’s both amusing, gross and naughty. All at exactly the identical time! how to make her cum to arouse her sexual fantasies.

3. You check each other’s hair and moles and other physical features.

If you’ve ever before inspected your partner’s butt for infection or anything else, you may be in an LTR. (Additionally, you may need some space as well as your spouse should probably go to a genuine doctor.) I love to do what I call “inspection” on my girl’s face, where I help her to take out pimples.

4. You groom one another.

Gone will be the days of expending hours correctly prepping yourselves before a day. Perchance you shave her legs, or possibly the man helps disperse sunscreen on his girlfriend’s back again (and provides you an instant skin cancer verification while he’s at it). We realize it gets much more serious than that, so we’re just heading to leave our illustrations on the less gross aspect for now.

5. Weird Dog or Cat Names

Couples will often have two collections of pet nicknames: the “normal” ones they use in public areas, and the weird ones they use in private. The general public pet labels are ones such as “baby,” “babe” and “honey.” The strange ones can be considered a range of odd labels that only they understand. After seeing for a while, an odd dog or cat name can be created that has nothing in connection with your partner’s real name. It may well not even be considered a variant of their nickname either. When said in private, these brands are normal, however when one of you truly message or calls the other by the unusual dog or cat name while away in public areas, it will surely turn minds and increase eyebrows.

When outsiders here these unusual pet names, they’ll either burst out laughing or have that “WTF?” look on the face. Sometimes, it’s much easier to just clean them off rather than trying to describe where in fact the name comes from. The real meanings behind odd pet names are occasionally better maintained under wraps.

Drug Overdose Bill Passes

Drug Overdose Immunity Bill Passes Pa. Senate

Finally drug users who overdose have a fighting chance to live.  It was almost a given that if a person overdosed with another drug user that they would not receive medical attention for fear of prosecution.  Now, that fear and jeopardy is gone.  With the passage of this Drug Overdose Immunity Bill, many lives will be saved.

Drug Overdose


Pennsylvania State Senators unanimously passed a bill to offer immunity to drug users who call 911 when someone is having an overdose.

The Pa. Senate voted 50-0 to pass Senate Bill 1164, known as a Good Samaritan drug overdose law, during their session in Harrisburg, Pa. on Tuesday.

The bill, would amend the state’s controlled substance law, to offer drug users immunity from prosecution for certain drug crimes when they call for help when a person they are with experiences a drug overdose. To receive immunity, a person must call 911, give authorities identifying information about themselves and stay with the overdosing person until help arrives. The bill’s writers say the law is written in a way that would ensure drug dealers would not be given immunity.

The law was introduced by Pa. State Senator Dominic Pileggi (R-9th), who serves parts of Chester and Delaware Counties, after he was approached by Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan.

Hogan says prosecutors wouldn’t typically prosecute a Good Samaritan in a case where they got help for an overdosing person, but believes people don’t realize that. So, he says, getting law on the books would help alleviate that.

Lynne Massi, a drug abuse advocate, says such a law could have saved the life of her nephew, David Massi. The 27-year-old was left brain dead after an overdose at a friend’s apartment in 2012. Lynne and her family believe David’s friends did not call for help because they were using drugs and were afraid of being arrested.

Several other states already have such immunity laws – including New Jersey, Delaware and New York. Pa.’s legislation has also gotten the stamp of approval from the ACLU of Pennsylvania.

The bill now moves onto the Pa. House where Sen. Pileggi is confident it will pass. He hopes the legislation will become law by the Spring of 2014.
