What just happened: Gov. Gavin Newsom of California signed a law Monday allowing college athletes to strike endorsement deals, a move that could upend the business model of college sports that denies student athletes the ability to trade on their talent. “Colleges reap billions from student athletes but block them from earning a single dollar,” Newsom tweeted. “That’s a bankrupt model.” The professional basketball stars LeBron James and Draymond Green have also thrown their support behind the law as a matter of economic justice for their amateur counterparts. On iOS, the App Store is the only way to get software -- well, the only way short of jailbreaking your phone. On MacOS, though, the App Store is just a newer way, and the traditional download-and-install mechanism remains widely used. One big reason: that bypasses restrictions Apple places on Mac App Store software.
If Medicare does not increase its payments, how many Americans will enter the health care field knowing that their incomes will barely match the educational loans necessary to earn their degrees? "This is not a cooking function. This is a public health issue," said Elizabeth Andress, the director of the National Center for Home Food Preservation. NCHFP is a research center at the University of Georgia created in partnership with the USDA to make research-based recommendations about home food preservation, including canning (you can read the USDA's guide to home canning here).
Tech The autoplay blocking, intended to make the web a more pleasant place and to rein in push websites, also had the unintended side effect of crippling lots of web-based games in Chrome. So Chrome temporarily disabled autoplay audio blocking -- though not the autoplay video blocking that also recently arrived with Chrome 66.
A good place to start is also the 1940 census, which is the most recent census publicly available, and the only census available for free through the National Archives and Ancestry.com. Typically, you want to start more recent and work your way backward with ancestry research. Maybe it was your grandparents or your great-grandparents who were alive in 1940, but if you can find them, the document will tell you things like who they were living with, their citizenship status and approximately when they were born (the census relied on self-provided information after all). From there you can start to build your family tree. Google and Facebook have been under intense scrutiny over their data-collection practices. Facebook has been rocked by a scandal involving Cambridge Analytica, a digital consultancy with ties to the Trump presidential campaign, that improperly accessed personal information on up to 87 million Facebook users.
Ernesto Londoño reported from Rio de Janeiro, and Letícia Casado from Recife, Brazil. "Optus has acknowledged this was wrong and should not have occurred," a spokesperson said in a statement.

• This year’s State Department report on human rights abuses condemned China’s treatment of Uighurs and other minorities, comparing it to atrocities not seen “since the 1930s.” But the report does not directly confront intelligence regarding the Saudi crown prince’s responsibility in Mr. Khashoggi’s death. On Facebook, there'll be a "Paid for by" disclosure at its top. Additionally, if you click on the label, you'll be taken to a page where you can learn how much money was spent and how many people saw the ad, as well as a breakdown of their age, gender and location.
Mayor Bill de Blasio learned this when hundreds of cops turned their backs on him at the funerals of two police officers killed by a man who had spouted anti-police vitriol. The officers were angry that a few months earlier Mr. de Blasio had the audacity to say that the Garner case made him think of the possibility of losing his biracial son in an encounter with the police. "This initial rollout with the AFP [news service Agence France-Presse] in France is our first test of fact-checking in photos and videos," Svensson said in an email. "We know that photos and video are more nuanced, and we'll look to refine this with the AFP before we roll out this capability further."
It's a marketing stunt timed to March Madness. It's absurd. Of course, branded weirdness has been around for years now, like the Doritos MP3 player bag or an unfolding pizza turntable. At least these are actual shoes. "I don't know what the length of time is, but when they ban you, it's not forever," he said.
