European Privacy Ruling Could Mean More Scrutiny of Companies
  + stars: | 2021-06-14 | by ( Catherine Stupp | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +6 min
The case was referred to the European court after the GDPR took effect. “The one-stop-shop mechanism doesn’t work as smoothly as it should work,” said Hielke Hijmans, who oversees fines and sanctions for the Belgian data protection authority. European privacy authorities generally issue sanctions through regulatory procedures, not courts. But tensions have been brewing over some European privacy regulators’ speed in investigating GDPR complaints. Mr. Caspar said he has since applied for an extension of the ban with the European Data Protection Board, the umbrella group of EU regulators.

As offices reopen, an expert shared the best strategies leaders should use to keep staff on board. So, how can leaders build flexible work environments and implement return-to-work strategies that retain workers and avoid employee resignations?

REUTERS/Rebecca CookInside the first new auto assembly plant built in the Motor City since 1991, the smell of hot metal hangs in the air as new Jeep Grand Cherokee L SUVs head down the welding line. The plant, which began building vehicles in March, now is operating three shifts a day, plant manager Michael Brieda said. The new Jeep plant underscores the split personality of the United States vehicle market, where most of the vehicles coming down the Mack assembly line will be sold. The nearby Jefferson North Jeep plant was built in 1991 - and until now was the Motor City's newest assembly plant.

Head of the Central Foreign Affairs Commission of China's ruling Communist Party, Yang also told Blinken that Washington should handle Taiwan-related issues "carefully and appropriately," state broadcaster CCTV reported. The State Department said the discussion on North Korea focused on the need for China and the United States "to work together for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." read more"We urge the United States to respect facts and science, refrain from politicizing the issue ... and focus on international cooperation in the fight against the pandemic," Yang said.

Instead, Apple's smart home strategy relies heavily on encouraging third-party hardware makers to adopt Apple's platform, HomeKit, which aims to simplify the process of getting gadgets from various companies to work together seamlessly. For example, Apple didn't release an Apple-branded smart lock, but it did promote a smart lock that uses Apple's software and integrates tightly with the iPhone's Home and Wallet apps. Apple's smart home strategy could also boost Apple TV or HomePod sales, as these devices can be used as the smart home's hub. There is one catch, though — the feature requires a HomePod or HomePod mini. Essentially, the third-party Siri gadget passes messages to the HomePod for processing.

Apple said Friday it didn't know former President Donald Trump's Department of Justice was asking for the metadata of Democratic lawmakers when it complied with a subpoena seeking the information. In general, companies like Apple challenge such requests, but in this case a grand jury and federal judge forced Apple to comply and keep it quiet. According to Apple, the subpoena requested data that belonged to a seemingly random group of email addresses and phone numbers. Apple said it provided the identifiers it had for some of the requests from the DOJ, but not all of the requests were for Apple customers. Apple also said that due to the nature of the subpoena, it believed other tech companies received similar orders from the DOJ.

Google and Facebook accounted for 54% of U.S. digital advertising revenue in 2020, according to eMarketer, a market research company. Under the Facebook Journalism Project, for instance, Reuters received funding to develop a digital media training course for journalists. Both Facebook and Google have made contributions to the news industry apart from the $600 million. Both Facebook and Google say publishers benefit just from using their platforms, which deliver traffic that helps drive advertising revenue and subscriptions. The Seattle Times publisher said his paper has participated in programs backed by Google and Facebook.

Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

It is crucial to the water supply of 25 million people including in the cities of Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas. As of 11 p.m. PDT Wednesday (0600 GMT Thursday), the lake surface fell to 1,071.56 feet above sea level, dipping below the previous record low set on July 1, 2016. Arizona is "in a completely unique situation relative to our historical records," said Michael Crimmins, a University of Arizona climate scientist. The Bureau of Reclamation is likely to declare Lake Mead's most extreme shortage condition for the first time ever, which would cut water supplies to Arizona, Nevada and Mexico, spokesperson Patti Aaron said. That is a year's supply for nearly 1 million households, according to the Arizona Department of Water Resources.

In this article AAPLTim Cook Source: AppleApple released several new augmented reality tools and technologies for software makers during its annual WWDC conference this week. These technologies could be vital if Apple in fact releases an augmented reality headset or glasses in coming years. Apple has never confirmed plans to release augmented reality hardware, but could reportedly announce a headset as soon as this year. Getting developers on board to build augmented reality software now increases the chance of one or more "killer apps" being available at launch. "Out of view today is Apple's intense ongoing development related to new product categories around augmented reality wearables and transportation."

REUTERS/Rebecca Cook/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - General Motors said Wednesday it supports the emissions reductions outlined in a 2019 deal struck between California and other major automakers but wants the federal government to adopt changes to speed the adoption of electric vehicles. The announcement came after GM Chief Executive Mary Barra met with Environmental Protection Agency chief Michael Regan. The Biden administration plans to announce by July proposed revisions to U.S. vehicle fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions requirements. The requirements are lower than Obama-era rules but higher than the Trump administration’s rollback.

REUTERS/Rebecca Cook/File PhotoGM’s position, outlined in a letter from Chief Executive Mary Barra to Environmental Protection Agency head Michael Regan, represented the latest shift on vehicle emissions policy by the No. Until November, GM backed the Trump administration’s effort to block California from setting tougher emissions standards than the federal government. Under the California standard, GM and other automakers will be out of compliance for the current 2021 model year and 2022. GM proposes that automakers ramp up to the California greenhouse gas standards by 2023 and then go beyond the proposed California emissions targets for 2024-2026 to reduce overall emissions for the 2020-2026 period by the same amount. The industry would then be set up for regulations for the 2027-2035 period that “will need to focus on full battery electric vehicle deployment,” Barra wrote.

Previously, only employees at certain levels of seniority were eligible to request a remote arrangement, and the policy varied between departments, a spokesperson tells CNBC Make It. And for those interested in moving to live and work abroad, the company will expand remote work across international borders over time. Facebook plans to expand the international locations where employees can move based on employee demand and where the company operates. Some Apple employees have already pushed back against the move, The Verge reports,"Apple's remote/location-flexible work policy, and the communication around it, have already forced some of our colleagues to quit," Apple employees wrote in an internal letter provided to The Verge.
