Amazon says email to employees banning TikTok was a mistake

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Roughly five hours after an internal email went out to employees telling them to delete the popular video app TikTok from their phones, Amazon appeared to backtrack, calling the ban a mistake.

“This morning’s email to some of our employees was sent in error. There is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok,” Amazon emailed reporters just before 5 p.m. Eastern time. Spokeswoman Jaci Anderson declined to answer questions about what happened.

WASHINGTON D.C. (WCMH) — The FBI is warning american healthcare companies to be on the lookout for hacking attempts made by China after national security leaders say China is trying to steal its way to making a COVID-19 vaccine.

National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien agrees with this week’s warning from FBI director Christopher Wray who said China wants to steal any information it can on COVID-19.

“It wouldn’t surprise me at all if that’s what they’re doing,” O’Brien said.

O’Brien added this approach is nothing new for China. The FBI also warned about Chinese hacking attempts in May.

“The Chinese have been hacking and stealing intellectual property and technology from America for the last 40 to 50 years,” O’Brien said.

There are more than 400 vaccine and therapy programs under research and development worldwide with some at major U.S. companies.

O’Brien expects any of those could be a target for Chinese hackers... Read More

Destination California: Central Sierra hikes

CALIFORNIA (NEXSTAR) — Central California is not only home to the fertile Central Valley, but also some of the highest mountain peaks in the US.

Later in the summer when the creek is low, the cold water is a welcome relief after hiking in the heat... Read More
