“If it’s open, I’ll definitely ski,” said Swede Max Ahlstedt, on the glacier where Zermatt offers year-round skiing. Some Swiss resorts, including Davos to the northwest, boast of “cold-fogging” equipment to blast the interiors of gondolas and “kill 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and spores in a minute”. The Swiss tourism association has even adopted “Clean & Safe” as its motto in the hope of easing tourists’ nerves. “It’d be worse if you couldn’t go to the mountains at all,” said Anne Spiegler, a German living in Zurich. Swiss resorts know that the number of guests from Britain, the Netherlands, Germany or Scandinavia will inevitably be far below the levels of a normal season as the wait for a vaccine stunts cross-border travel.

REUTERS/Arnd Wiegmann/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Apple Inc AAPL.O, advertising giant GroupM and others asked the judge hearing the Justice Department's lawsuit against Alphabet's Google GOOGL.O on Friday to allow them to designate certain data used by the government as "highly confidential," to ensure that no-one from Google could see it. The government is accusing Google of illegally using its market muscle to hobble rivals in a lawsuit that is the biggest challenge to the power and influence of Big Tech in decades. GroupM further asked that the information be "disclosed only on an 'outside attorneys' eyes only' basis." Microsoft, Amazon and others said in a joint filing that if Google had access to some sensitive documents that it would gain leverage with the companies in any future negotiations.

REUTERS/Arnd WiegmannPARIS (Reuters) - Alphabet’s Google has signed copyright agreements with six French newspapers and magazines, including national dailies Le Monde and Le Figaro, the U.S. tech company said in a post on its blog on Thursday. The announcement follows months of bargaining between Google, French publishers and news agencies over how to apply revamped EU copyright rules, which allow publishers to demand a fee from online platforms showing extracts of their news. The agreements with the six French newspapers are based on criteria such as the publisher’s “contribution to political and general information,” the daily volume of publications, the monthly internet traffic and the use of their content on Google’s platform, Google said. The agreements with French newspapers involve Google’s vehicle to remunerate news publishers, dubbed Google News Showcase, which already has agreements with leading publications in neighbouring Germany.

A video falsely claiming that COVID-19 was planned to remove U.S. President Donald Trump from office has been circulating online. Conspiracy theories linking Fauci’s comment with the COVID-19 pandemic circulated online in May and were debunked by the fact-checking website Snopes ( here ). This comment is not evidence Gates was involved in the COVID-19 pandemic or in a plan to remove Trump from the White House. THE 2020 ELECTION WAS RIGGEDThe video concludes that electoral fraud took place to ensure Trump could not win the 2020 U.S. election. The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic was not planned to overthrow Trump.

“People expect Google to give them the most relevant, high quality search results that they can trust,” a Google representative said. “Google gained unjustified advantages through preferentially treating its own services within its general search results pages by displaying various forms of grouped specialised search results (so-called OneBoxes),” it added. OneBoxes outline information and images in boxes placed near the top of search results and are often ways for local businesses to get more visibility. They urged Vestager to act swiftly to ensure Google gave its rivals equal treatment in search results. It is unclear how the new rules would affect Google’s presentation of its search results.

Speaking to CNBC's Karen Tso on Tuesday night, Cunningham said the NYSE was continuing to see demand from Chinese companies for U.S. stock market listings. "What is really important is that we make sure we are appropriately setting a framework in place that keeps investors protected," Cunningham said.
