PREVIEWRather than demanding ransom to not publish the source code, the hackers have instead said they would auction it on the darknet. Additionally, the digital nature of prized assets, such as source code, means that were a hacker to break in, crucial intellectual property can be targeted and stolen. Hackers could sell source code or use it to launch attacks in a number of ways, according to researchers. “If you’re in the market for selling cheats and cracks for a certain game, the source code is going to help you identify ways to bypass protections.

But the minute I had a chance to get vaccinated in early March, I took it. Fast forward a few months and … turns out a lot of people need to be convinced or lobbied or bribed. I’m sure you’ve seen the “Price Is Right” Showcase Showdown-like incentives being dangled to get reluctant people vaccinated lately. And props to the states enrolling previously vaccinated people like me into their lotteries, raffles and giveaways; we early adopters appreciate the recognition. So if John Doe is only reluctantly getting vaccinated now because he has a shot at paying his rent this month or winning a new car, good for him.

Now, as Nebraska officials buck the national trend of closing prisons and seek to erect a new mixed-security facility, they're finding few takers. Security forces in riot gear surround a courtyard at Tecumseh State Correctional Institution in Tecumseh, Neb., on March 2, 2017. Nati Harnik / AP“The last time we had a new prison ... multiple towns put in bids for it,” said Doug Koebernick, the inspector general whose office provides accountability and independent oversight of Nebraska prisons. “Prisons did very little for the local economy, because unlike with other kinds of employment, where there are linkages with other businesses in the area, prisons didn’t buy things locally,” Thomas Johnson, a retired University of Missouri professor who studied prison towns, told me.

Banks to Companies: No More Deposits, Please

Banks have been holding that cash ever since, and because companies are reluctant to borrow from them, they can’t turn it into income-generating loans. Companies flooded U.S. banks with deposits at the start of the pandemic. High deposits usually aren’t a bad thing for banks, as long as they can use the money to make loans. Since then, some banks have warned the growing deposits could force them to raise more capital, or say no to deposits. In recent months, banks including BNY Mellon have focused on moving clients from deposits into money-market funds, which are common cash-like investments.

Positive labor market data released Thursday added to rising confidence that the economy is returning in full force, with the latest weekly initial jobless claims falling below 400,000 for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic's chokehold strained the nation. Initial applications for unemployment benefits fell to 385,000 for the week ended May 29, according to data released Thursday by the Labor Department. The latest employment metrics bolster the prevailing optimism about Friday’s closely watched monthly jobs report, with economists polled by Dow Jones projecting gains of 674,000. “In light of last month’s report, this month’s is really important to give us a sense of whether last month was a blip or a sign of a bigger story in the labor market,” Bunker said of the upcoming labor market report. “There’s been kind of a reckoning with respect to resetting expectations and standards, and there’s not a one-size-fits-all response.”

American movie theaters roared back to life over the Memorial Day holiday weekend as some consumers returned to pre-Covid rituals, raising hopes that cinema chains can stage a comeback after a brutal year. But while holiday box-office receipts brought relief to studio executives and bolstered the country’s slow-but-steady economic recovery, Hollywood still faces a stark question: Do movie theaters have a future, or was the weekend rebound just a blip? The combined North American box office fetched $97 million over the four-day weekend, according to data from media measurement firm Comscore. “A Quiet Place Part II,” John Krasinski’s long-delayed horror sequel, grossed $57 million. In total, the North American box office could climb above $100 million over the holiday weekend, according to Comscore.

The Pandemic Made Kids’ Eyesight Worse, Doctors Say

Many kids are emerging from the pandemic with vision problems, doctors say. Eye doctors say they are seeing more children—many of whom were in virtual school—with new and worsening prescriptions for myopia, or near-sightedness. Rates of myopia in children were already increasing globally before the pandemic, but some research suggests the past year has exacerbated the problem. Doctors also report more cases of digital eye strain in kids. (Adults don’t tend to experience significant worsening of myopia because eye growth generally stabilizes after childhood.)

But while its white population has stabilized, it continues to lose Black residents at a faster clip than other major cities. David Motley, a Black venture capitalist, is trying to change that, namely by bringing more Black professionals to Pittsburgh, now a burgeoning center for technology, business and education. He is now hoping to build up a strong middle class in a city that has been hemorrhaging Black residents for years. As the city began attracting more tech companies in the early 2000s and neighborhoods were gentrified, in some cases Black residents could no longer afford to stay. Meanwhile, the white population in Pittsburgh has stabilized after 70 years of decline.

Experts See Urgent Need for New Search of Pandemic’s Origins China’s state media reflects Beijing’s rejection of a deeper inquiry into the virus’s roots. U.S. experts press calls for China to allow deeper inquiries into the pandemic’s origins. United States intelligence agencies, it said, “do not have superior research capability” than the World Health Organization, or more information. “If this thing came out of a lab, there are people in China who probably know that,” he said. As coronavirus cases decline in France, which has seen about 5.7 million total cases and more than 100,000 deaths, more than 15 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated.

WASHINGTON—The Senate on Friday delayed a vote on legislation aimed at helping the U.S. maintain its lead in technology, after several Republicans argued that the bill was being rushed through without full debate. The final vote on the bill, aimed at addressing rising competition from China and other nations, is now scheduled for June 8, after lawmakers return from their Memorial Day recess. The legislation has emerged as one of the few big bipartisan legislative efforts so far this year, and appeared headed for approval late Thursday. But several Republicans staged a lengthy protest into the early hours of Friday morning, contending that the bill was too expensive, and that a series of amendments required more time to review. “And so as a result, it’s not a horrible thing to suggest, let’s put off voting for a few days.”

Once his detailed tactical instructions are done, and after his last-minute audibles, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola likes to ask his team to remember why they became soccer players in the first place. And before they can answer, he reminds them: it’s because they love to have the ball at their feet. It might be a simple point, but it’s at the core of Guardiola’s attacking philosophy. The manager who built irresistible attacking machines, from Barcelona to Bayern Munich to Man City, has now added unrelenting defense to his arsenal. The club has conceded just seven goals in 12 games on its way to Saturday’s Champions League final against Chelsea, a career low for Guardiola.
