    The Berkeley City Council in California unanimously voted to adopt sweeping police reforms that will include eliminating traffic stops for low-level violations and removing racist officers as it seeks to cut the department's $72million budget in half by this summer.  The reform vote on Tuesday coincided with Berkeley's effort to reduce the police department's to $36million in the coming months. A task force leading the effort met for the first time last week, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.      The changes come as some other cities around the US that cut police budgets in response to unrest following the death of George Floyd face growing challenges - including in Minneapolis, where officials recently moved to increase funding due to a shortage of officers.    Berkeley's newest reforms will likely be difficult to execute on the dramatically reduced budget. They include implementing an 'Early Intervention System' to get biased officers off the street, requiring...
    Nick Clegg was today blasted for a 'bizarre', 'patronising' and 'disingenuous' rant about Facebook's war with Australia over paying for news content. The former deputy PM, now vice president of global affairs at the tech giant on a reputed seven-figure salary, complained its position had been 'misunderstood' in an extraordinary blog. Claiming to be telling the 'real' story of the standoff, Sir Nick said Facebook temporarily blocked the sharing of news stories in Australia because a new law would have left it signing a 'blank cheque' to publishers.  He griped that the platform did not ask people to share news, comparing the situation to 'forcing carmakers to fund radio stations because people might listen to them in the car, and letting the stations set the price'.  CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally agreed to end the week-long blockade of news after Australian ministers significantly watered down the laws.

The companies are aiming to enroll some 4,000 pregnant women in the trial around the world.

Timken, who served as the state GOP chair for four years before stepping down in February, released a video statement about her candidacy in which she embraced former President Donald Trump’s America First agenda and bashed former Republican Gov. John Kasich — who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2020 in favor of now-President Joe Biden — for refusing to support Trump in 2016 or 2020. “I’m running for the United States Senate to stand up for you, just like when I stood next to President Trump and supported his America First agenda that created jobs and brought manufacturing back to our shores,” Timken said. “As Ohio Republican Party chairman, I cleaned house of the Kasich establishment, who tried to elect Hillary Clinton...

    A senior executive for the Milwaukee Bucks, Alex Lasry, launched a Democratic campaign for Wisconsin's Senate seat in 2022, making the liberal politics of the NBA the foundation of his campaign. "We've been able to use progressive values to build a strong and profitable business," Lasry, 33, said in a Wednesday campaign launch video.

    Virginia’s new statewide preregistration site to receive a coronavirus vaccination launched smoothly Tuesday morning. Even before the scheduled 8 a.m. debut, the Virginia Department of Health site was online, providing a consistent signup process for residents across the state.

Questions include whether you have allergies to medications, or any special conditions that should be taken into consideration when it’s time to receive a vaccination.

    Mitch McConnell tore into Donald Trump Saturday after voting with 42 other Republicans to acquit him of ‘incitement of insurrection’ – but then immediately argued the former president is solely to blame for Capitol storming.  'President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office,' McConnell said in Senate floor remarks. On the fifth and final day of the impeachment trial, the Republican Senate leader argued in a speech following the 57-43 vote that Congress does not hold the jurisdiction to criminally or civilly prosecute the former president. McConnell did, however, suggest that Trump should still somehow be held accountable for his words and actions. 'He didn't get away with anything, yet,' McConnell said. 'We have a criminal justice system in this country. We have civil litigation and former presidents are not immune from being accountable by either one.' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was livid as...

    Apple is gearing up for the release of For All Mankind season 2 on Apple TV Plus. It’s kicking things off with a new augmented reality app, For All Mankind: Time Capsule, that looks to fill in the gap between the two seasons using AR artifacts from the world of the show. The app itself is a fun promotional gimmick to help promote the second season of one of Apple’s higher-profile original shows. It’s the broader strategy at play that’s interesting. It’s no secret that Apple is interested in AR. The recurring AR demos at the last several iPhone and iPad product announcements, the addition of AR-focused LIDAR cameras on the latest iPad Pro and iPhone 12 Pro devices, and the persistent rumors of the company’s pending VR / AR headsets are all clear evidence of that. And Apple has been rumored to be working...
    Google Photos implemented new editing options for subscribers Google One. After weeks of rumors, the technology announced the changes that will apply from today. Options for paid users are three characteristics that until today were exclusive to the Pixel.

The filter Color Pop, which is regularly used for photos in Portrait mode, can be applied to your entire library if you are a Google One user. The company confirmed that this option will continue to be available to the general public, although only for photographs with depth information. Finally others...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS / AP) — Republican John Cox formally opened his campaign for California governor Monday with a TV ad depicting his leading GOP rival as a political twin of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom and promising to work for lower housing costs and new jobs. The 30-second ad airing statewide marks the official kickoff of his second campaign for the state’s top job, after Cox finished behind Newsom in their 2018 matchup. “I’m a businessman, not a politician,” Cox says in the ad, looking directly into the camera. “It’s time for a fresh start.” Cox will be a candidate in the proposed recall election that threatens to oust Newsom this year, if it qualifies for the ballot, or will run against Newsom when he is expected to seek a second term in 2022. Cox filed paperwork with the state last week to establish a committee to raise money. California GOP gubernatorial candidate...

    If you are running behind on your water bill in D.C., you may be able to get assistance — even if you don’t typically pay your water bill directly. The first program under “DC Water Cares” aims to help low-income renters whose water bills are reflected in their monthly rent. In the past, low-income renters could not get relief because their bill was often tied to rent. But through the new program, DC Water will provide discounts to landlords who would then pass along at least 90% of that to qualifying tenants’ rent. Once the owner of the building signs up for the program, tenants who receive assistance through the Department of Human Services, Department of Energy and Environment or live in an affordable housing unit will automatically qualify. People living in apartments can also apply if their income level is 80% of D.C.’s area median income. “We know...

    The French giant specialized in the management of water, waste and energy services Veolia has offered almost 8,000 million euros to acquire his compatriot Suez, thus giving up on buying amicably from your competitor after months of trying. This Sunday night, in a brief statement, Veolia, which bought 29.9% of Suez’s capital in October, found that his “friendly repeated attempts” to acquire the remainder of the capital from his great competitor were unsuccessful. Faced with Suez’s intransigence, Veolia’s board of directors has decided to launch a public tender offer (OPA) at the price of 18 euros per share over 70.1% of the capital that it does not control, which represents an operation of 7,900 million euros in cash. Suez has reacted immediately: “Legally, Veolia cannot present a takeover bid,” a company spokeswoman told ., who denounced “a break in the friendly commitment” that Veolia had assumed. Previously, the CEO...

It’s supposed to help the 75-and-older age group avoid the confusion of the state’s online system for vaccination appointments. “We expect this call center certainly today will experience very high call volume,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “You may have to wait a bit in the line.” “I’m relieved that the governor got the message and started to set up a call center,” said Massachusetts State Senator Eric Lesser. “I would point out that it’s two months after the first vaccine doses arrived in Massachusetts.” He and others have been calling for the administration to simplify the vaccine rollout that’s been criticized as slow and inequitable. In a news conference Friday, the governor played a public service announcement aimed at picking up the pace. The multilingual spot is set to air...
    A new sexual consent app in Denmark allows lovers to grant permission from their smartphones - after the country toughened its rape laws to require explicit consent.  The press of a button on the iConsent app gives permission for 'one intercourse' which is valid for 24 hours and can be withdrawn at any time.  But the app has met with a cool reception in Denmark, where one newspaper called it 'as unsexy as another corona press conference'.   The encrypted data is stored on the app in case it is needed for criminal inquiries, although experts have cast doubt on whether it would ever really be used in court.  A new app launched in Denmark allows people to register their sexual consent with their smartphones after the country toughened its rape laws in December   Denmark's parliament passed a new law in December expanding the definition of rape to include any...

    (CNN)Florida has launched a statewide preregistration system to schedule Covid-19 vaccine appointments for people 65 and older and frontline healthcare workers, the state's health department said Friday. Individuals can preregister for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in their area, according to a Florida Department of Health news release. The department's website will also allow those who are eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine to be contacted when vaccine appointments are available at state-supported vaccination sites. The move comes after Gov. Ron DeSantis opened up access to the vaccine to anyone 65 and older, which led to overwhelming demand and little organization as to how to distribute the vaccine.
