The ride-hailing web got even more tangled this week, when China's Didi Chuxing purchased Brazil's 99. Not only was this a SoftBank-backed ride-hail company buying another SoftBank-backed ride-hail company, but it was a company in which Uber is a major shareholder buying a company that views Uber as its top rival.

Below is an updated version of a graphic we first ran in May. In addition to Didi-99, changes include Alphabet's investment into Lyft and SoftBank's expected purchase of a large stake in Uber.

President Trump signed a bill to extend current levels of government funding into early December, White House spokesperson Judd Deere confirmed early Thursday.

Driving the news: The Senate on Tuesday passed the legislation to fund the federal government through Dec. 11, by a vote of 84-10. The move averts a government shutdown before the Nov. 3 election, though funding did expire briefly before the bill was signed.

More than 1700 firefighters are battling 26 major blazes across California, including in the heart of the wine country, where one mega-blaze claimed the lives of three people and forced thousands of others to evacuate this week.

The big picture: More than 8,100 wildfires have burned across a record 39 million-plus acres, killing 29 people and razing almost 7,900 structures in California this year, per Cal Fire. Just like the deadly blazes of 2017, the wine country has become a wildfires epicenter. Gov. Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency in Napa, Sonoma, and Shasta counties.
