Google delays phase out of tracking tech by nearly 2 years

Google will delay by nearly two years the phase out of Chrome web browser technology that tracks users for ad purposes, saying that it needs more time to develop a replacement system. The tech giant on Thursday moved its deadline to remove so-called third-party cookies to late 2023 rather than January 2022 as was initially planned. Third-party cookies are snippets of code that log user info and are used by advertisers to more effectively target their campaigns, thereby helping fund free online content such as newspapers and blogs. However, they’ve also been a longstanding source of privacy concerns because they can be employed to track users across the internet. To resolve the U.K. probe, the company has offered the country’s competition watchdog a role overseeing the cookie phaseout.

The AP and The Philadelphia Inquirer petitioned a federal judge to unseal the case. Federal prosecutors did not oppose the request, and the judge agreed, paving the way for Thursday’s release of documents. The contractor detected an underground mass that weighed up to nine tons and had the density of gold, the affidavit said. Archer said that a turtle carving found on a rock near the proposed dig site was “very likely ... a KGC marker for that site." He noted the warrant granted by U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Lloret gave FBI agents permission to dig from 6 a.m to 10 p.m.

Live Covid-19 Live Updates: More U.S. States Try Lotteries to Tackle Vaccine Hesitancy Louisiana, where the inoculation rate has lagged significantly behind the national average, is among the latest to dangle cash prizes and scholarships in return for getting a shot. Six of the bottom eight states are in the South: They include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee. The Biden administration has made a concerted push to overcome vaccine hesitancy, particularly in the South. In some states, he said, the lotteries coincided with making the vaccine available to teenagers, which could skew the numbers. He suggested comparing the vaccination rates in states with lotteries to those without them.

Some nations with high rates of the Delta variant are seeing an uptick in COVID-19 related deaths. The Delta coronavirus variant appears to be more transmissible and more able to cause symptomatic illnesses among people who have been given one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Russia, Indonesia, Britain, and Israel have been dealing with a surge in cases, which they attribute to the Delta variant. As of Wednesday, just 11% of its population has been fully vaccinated, and 14% have received one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, the Associated Press reported. Indonesia recently reported that hundreds of healthcare workers vaccinated with the Chinese vaccine Sinovac caught the coronavirus.

ATLANTA — A judge on Thursday allowed a lawsuit alleging fraud in Georgia’s most populous county during the November election and seeking a review of absentee ballots to move forward. Originally filed in December, the lawsuit says there is evidence of fraudulent ballots and improper ballot counting in Fulton County. The county, county elections board and county courts clerk had filed motions to dismiss the lawsuit. As part of the suit, they are seeking to inspect some 147,000 absentee ballots to determine whether there are illegitimate ballots among them. Fulton County officials have consistently defended the integrity of the election and have criticized the ballot review effort.

MOSCOW — Russia is prepared to target intruding warships if they fail to heed warnings, a senior diplomat declared Thursday after a Black Sea incident in which a British destroyer sailed near Crimea in an area that Russia claims as its territorial waters. Britain denied that account, insisted its ship wasn’t fired upon and said it was sailing in Ukrainian waters. Minutes later, the Defender left Russian waters, the ministry said. It insisted the ship was making a routine journey through an internationally recognized travel lane and remained in Ukrainian waters. The U.K., like most of the world, recognizes Crimea as part of Ukraine despite the peninsula's 2014 annexation by Russia.

JERUSALEM — An outspoken critic of the Palestinian Authority who was a candidate in parliamentary elections called off earlier this year died after Palestinian security forces arrested him and beat him with batons on Thursday, his family said. Earlier this week, another prominent activist was detained by the PA and held overnight after criticizing it on Facebook. Mohammed Banat, a cousin who witnessed the arrest, said a group of men, some wearing masks, burst into the house where Nizar was staying and sprayed everyone with pepper spray. In a brief statement, the Hebron governorate said Nizar's "health deteriorated" when Palestinian forces went to arrest him early Thursday. He blamed the attack on Abbas' Fatah party, which dominates the security forces.

“Drought and grasshoppers go together and they are cleaning us out.”A male migratory grasshopper. Left unaddressed, federal officials said the agricultural damage from grasshoppers could become so severe it could drive up beef and crop prices.

Almost 20 million acres (8 million hectares) were treated with 1.3 million gallons (5 million liters) of malathion, according to researchers.

Failed attempts to pass marriage equality measures in 2007 and 2009, however, left supporters deflated.

Russia said one of its warships fired warning shots and a warplane dropped bombs in the path of British destroyer Defender on Wednesday to drive it away from waters near the Crimean city of Sevastopol. "If it doesn't help, we may drop bombs and not just in the path but right on target, if colleagues don't get it otherwise."

He charged that the British denial that Russia had fired warning shots and dropped bombs to chase the Defender away was an attempt to save face.
