The United States on Friday imposed sanctions on companies in Iran, China and the United Arab Emirates for doing business with the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines and on three Iranian entities over conventional arms proliferation. He said Iran's Marine Industries Organization, Aerospace Industries Organization and the Iran Aviation Industries Organization had also been blacklisted over conventional arms proliferation. In a statement later on Friday, Pompeo said he was also increasing the scope of metals-related sanctions against Iran administered by the State Department. Saying the agreement did not go far enough, Trump in 2018 quit an Iran nuclear deal, which Tehran struck with world powers in 2015 to rein in its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief. Democratic President-elect Joe Biden, who will succeed Trump on Wednesday, has said he will return to the 2015 nuclear pact if Iran resumes strict compliance with it.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor has consistently dissented against the accelerated push for federal executions at the direction of the Justice Department and wrote a scathing dissent breaking down the concerted strategy to rush executions. The Supreme Court executed Dustin Higgs late Friday, making Higgs the thirteenth person to be killed by the federal government since July. A petition to stop Higg's execution amassed more than 1.5 million signatures ahead of Friday. In July, the US Department of Justice ended a 17-year pause on federal executions, at Attorney General William Barr's direction. In her latest dissent, Sotomayor described the recent surge in federal executions and the human toll behind it.

Privacy and antitrust experts hit out at Google's $2.1 billion acquisition of Fitbit, branding the sale 'sinister'. Google has made commitments about not using Fitbit data for ads. "This deal has always been about devices, not data, and we've been clear since the beginning that we will protect Fitbit users' privacy," hardware chief Rick Osterloh wrote on Thursday. Europe's antitrust regulator laid out a series of Google commitments around the deal, such as keeping a technical separation between Fitbit data and ad data. He described talk of Google using Fitbit data to personalize ads as a "red herring" in the debate.

James Murdoch, son of Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch, had attacked news outlets "that propagate lies" for their role in unleashing "insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years." "Those outlets that propagate lies to their audience have unleashed insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years," the youngest Murdoch told the Financial Times on Friday.

The youngest Murdoch son has since turned his attention to his foundation called Quadrivium, which according to its website, aims to promote initiatives related to democracy, voter participation, and climate change among others. "Many media property owners have as much responsibility for this as the elected officials who know the truth but choose instead to propagate lies.

In the wake of the SolarWinds attack, dedicated cybersecurity funding was a necessary step, one expert said, especially as COVID vaccine efforts will collect massive amounts of Americans' personal data. On Thursday night, the Biden-Harris administration released plans for a nearly $2 trillion spending package for pandemic relief and economic recovery. Hidden at the very bottom of the plan, the new administration allocated more than $10 billion to various IT modernization and cybersecurity initiatives. Experts say it's another sign of President-elect Biden's technology focus, especially when it comes to cybersecurity and updating IT at federal agencies. $9 billion — the biggest chunk of the dedicated tech spend — is for expanding the Technology Modernization Fund's cybersecurity and IT services.

Procuring a coronavirus shot may be easy or difficult, depending on where you live. Around 260 million Americans are eligible to receive coronavirus vaccines, but procuring a shot may be easy or difficult, depending on where they live. That's a daunting challenge for many states with understaffed or underfunded health departments — though an $8.7 billion coronavirus relief package will soon assist states with vaccine distribution issues. States have also struggled to oversee mass vaccinations while simultaneously dealing with an unprecedented surge of coronavirus cases that has overwhelmed hospitals. Here are the states where it's easiest and most difficult to get a shot, based on the number of doses administered per capita.
