In Malaysia's Sabah, pandemic rages as migrants flee testing
  + stars: | 2020-11-23 | by ( Rozanna Latiff | ) www.reuters.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
Sabah accounts for nearly half of Malaysia’s 54,775 recorded COVID-19 infections and over half its 335 deaths despite having barely a tenth of the Southeast Asian country’s population. But health officials fear the real picture could be much worse as people evade screenings in fear of detention or deportation. As of Nov. 17, nearly a fifth of the state’s infections involved foreigners, according to government data obtained by Reuters. The data included both documented and undocumented migrants. But the response has been lukewarm to say the least.”Malaysia’s crackdown on undocumented migrants since the start of the pandemic has also worsened fears among vulnerable communities, rights groups say.

Read on for more on SoulCycle's top instructors mistreating staff, Moderna's research revolution, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai's leadership shift. We now have two promising coronavirus vaccines, with Moderna's promising results this week backing up those from Pfizer the previous week. "SoulCycle kind of turned the cheek on a lot of stuff as long as they were making money," Brody added. SoulCycle instructors were fawned over by riders and the company's top brass, but insiders said inappropriate behavior became more commonplace as SoulCycle's cult following grew. On Tuesday, it finally came, triggering a sell-off of shares for distributors, retail pharmacies, and health plans alike.

REUTERS/Yoruk Isik/File PhotoISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey said it was extending the seismic survey work of its Oruc Reis ship in a disputed area of the eastern Mediterranean until Nov. 29, in a move that could add to tensions in the region. NATO members Turkey and Greece are locked in a dispute over the extent of their continental shelves and conflicting claims to hydrocarbon resources in the eastern Mediterranean. The row erupted in August when Turkey sent Oruc Reis into waters also claimed by Greece and Cyprus. Along with two other ships, the Ataman and Cengiz Han, Oruc Reis will continue work in an area west of Cyprus, a Turkish naval maritime notice said on Saturday.

Investments in and acquisitions of legal tech startups are on the rise as law firms, in-house general counsel, and clients seek more efficient ways to do business. Also fueling the growth of the legal tech market is the mounting competition from professional services firms like the Big Four accounting firms. Here's a list of 21 successful legal tech startups that were acquired by or received investments from these strategic investors. Venture capitalists have long been investing in promising legal tech startups: There were 124 deals valued at around $1 billion in the space globally, up from 84 deals valued at $500 million in 2018, according to data from PitchBook. Ownership rules currently prevent non-lawyers from owning law firms — rules that are starting to change, beginning with Arizona in 2021 — so for now, companies are competing with law firms to offer some legal services with a focus on digital and automated innovation.
