WeWork IPO filing: Losses, risks, and platitudes
WeWork , which rents out co-working spaces to startups, freelancers and enterprises, has been expanding beyond co-working spaces. WeWork's losses accelerated in the first half of this year, though its revenue more than doubled, the filing shows.

Benson had several off the field problems after his career - he was arrested for drunk driving in 2017 and 2018.

Benson, 36, was reportedly one of two people who died in a motorcycle accident Saturday night in Austin. A Facebook post on Sunday morning from Benson's relative, Dominic Benson, read, "No no no no no no God no!"

Benson, a running back who played for the Longhorns from 2001 to 2004, accumulated the second-most rushing yards in program history and topped 1,000 yards in each of his four seasons. He also played for the Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers over his eight-year National Football League career.
