After recalling more than 17 million vehicles so far this year in the United States, General Motors on Monday announced its largest-yet recall of another 7.6 million cars and light trucks spanning 17 years.

“We undertook what I believe is the most comprehensive safety review in the history of our company because nothing is more important than the safety of our customers,” said GM CEO Mary Barra in a statement from the company. “Our customers deserve more than we delivered in these vehicles. That has hardened my resolve to set a new industry standard for vehicle safety, quality and excellence.” Read more…

And to think, $ 10 billion sounded like a lot.

Uber is said to be in talks with investment firms this week to raise about $ 500 million at a $ 12 billion valuation, according to a report Thursday in The Wall Street Journal. The ride-hailing company is looking to finalize the deal by the end of this quarter.

Reps for Uber did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

As the Journal points out, a $ 12 billion valuation would make Uber one of the most highly valued venture-backed startups out there. Perhaps more importantly, it would help Uber pull ahead of Lyft, a competitor with comparable funding to date, in terms of capital raised and brand perception. Read more…

Facebook is gearing up for the FIFA World Cup by unearthing a trove of data designed to persuade marketers to advertise on the platform.

The social network’s piece de resistance is the claim that some 500 million Facebookers are soccer fans. While Brazil has the most fans of any country with 53.8 million, surprisingly, the U.S. is No. 2 with 48.9 million. Facebook considers you a soccer fan if you have liked a team or a player’s page

Such fans tend to skew young. Facebook claims that 60% are under 34 years old. There’s also an even split — 51% and 49%, respectively — among male and female fans. Some other stats: Read more…

Improving global access and sustainability of clean drinking water is part of the United Nations’ Millennial Development Goals (MDGs) — a blueprint of addressing the world’s most pressing needs with a target date of 2015.

Since 1990, 2.3 billion people have gained access to drinking water from improved sources. But despite this progress, 748 million people — 90% of whom live in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia — still use unimproved drinking water sources, according to an updated report the World Health Organization and UNICEF released on Thursday.
