    Incoming Amazon CEO Andy Jassy is reportedly committed to the idea of the company continuing to make games, even as it has yet to release one that is either commercially or critically successful. “Some businesses take off in the first year, and others take many years,” he wrote in an email obtained by Bloomberg. “Though we haven’t consistently succeeded yet in Amazon Game Studios, I believe we will if we hang in there.” Jassy is said to have sent the email one day before Amazon announced he would take over as CEO of the company once Jeff Bezos leaves the post later this year. The timing of the message is significant for a couple of other reasons.

    By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Biden administration will begin providing COVID-19 vaccines to U.S. pharmacies, part of its plan to ramp up vaccinations as new and potentially more serious virus strains are starting to appear, the White House said Tuesday. Coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients said starting next week some 6,500 pharmacies around the country will receive a total of 1 million doses of vaccine. The number of participating pharmacies, and the allocation of vaccines, are expected to accelerate as drugmakers increase production. Drug stores have become a mainstay for flu shots and shingles vaccines, and the industry is capable of vaccinating tens of millions of people monthly. “This will provide more sites for people to get vaccinated in their communities,” said Zients. The partnership with drug stores was originally announced by the Trump administration last November. At that time, no coronavirus vaccines had been approved....
    New York restaurant workers will now be eligible for the coronavirus vaccine if local governments can spare the shots, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday — reversing his position from just a day before after the federal government said it would send more doses to states. The governor hung a U-turn one day after saying the state couldn’t afford to make any additions to the vaccine eligibility list due to a lack of supplies — and hours after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called on him to do it anyway, citing the impending resumption of indoor dining at 25 percent capacity. Though the state controls who is eligible for the vaccine, Cuomo on Tuesday pinned responsibility on local leaders like de Blasio to make the call on if they can afford to vaccinate the newly-eligible groups. “I’m leaving it up to the local governments to determine what fits their...

    NEW YORK (AP) — New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang has tested positive for COVID-19, he announced Tuesday. “After testing negative as recently as this weekend, I have taken a positive COVID rapid test,” Yang said on Twitter. “I’m experiencing mild symptoms, but am otherwise feeling well & in good spirits.” The 46-year-old entrepreneur said he is quarantining and following public health guidelines.

    FREMONT (CBS SF/AP) — After initially refusing a request from U.S. safety regulators, Fremont-based Tesla has now agreed to recall about 135,000 vehicles nationwide and in the San Francisco Bay Area because the large touch screens on the console can go dark. The recall of certain 2012 through 2018 Model S sedans and 2016 through 2018 Model X SUVs ends a fight with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which had started the process of taking the electric vehicle maker to court. Last month the agency sent Tesla a recall request letter, saying that after an investigation, it had concluded tentatively that the screens are defective and pose a safety risk because the backup camera displays and defroster controls would go dark. Tesla had refused to do a recall, saying that over-the-air software updates would take care of the problem. But in a document posted by NHTSA on Tuesday, Tesla...

    The Chinese government, which famously opposed travel bans when the Wuhan coronavirus was spreading around the world, announced on Saturday that it will temporarily ban travel from Canada “in view of the current Covid-19 [Chinese coronavirus] situation and the need of epidemic prevention and control.” “All foreign nationals who hold valid Chinese residence permits for work, personal matters and reunion are temporarily not allowed to enter China from Canada,” the Chinese embassy in Ottawa stated. “The suspension is a temporary measure that China has to take in light of the current pandemic situation,” the embassy added. China was furiously opposed to travel bans in early 2020, when nations around the world were considering precisely the sort of restriction against Chinese travelers that Beijing is now imposing upon Canada without a second thought. Chinese officials and state media treated travel bans as personal insults or racist discrimination.  In February 2020, Chinese...
