Photo by Brandon Bell/Getty Images President Joe Biden signed an executive order Thursday expanding a Trump-era ban on Americans investing in Chinese companies with purported ties to China’s military. The order increases the number of restricted Chinese companies from 48 to 59. It also rewrites a previous order issued by former President Donald Trump to include companies that create and deploy surveillance technology, like the technology used against Muslim minorities and dissidents in Hong Kong. The move signals that Biden plans to continue some of the same China-related policies previously put in place by the Trump administration. The order does not include DJI, WeChat, TikTok, or its parent company ByteDance among the 59 companies, despite previous concerns about... Continue reading…

Image: Apple The Apple Card is experiencing an outage today that may affect your ability to make payments, manage your card, and see recent transactions, according to Apple’s status page. Interruption in service appears to have started at 6:17AM PT today and is still ongoing five hours later. Apple’s credit card solution is managed almost entirely through the built-in Wallet app in iOS, where users can pay off their credit card bill, see recent transactions, and make payments through Apple Pay. Apple says that all users are affected by today’s outage, though it’s not clear if every user will experience all of the possible issues the company has reported. My colleague Mitchell Clark was able to pay off a portion of their bill and see the transaction... Continue reading…

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has shifted how it will name current and future Covid-19 variants on Monday, choosing to identify them by letters of the Greek alphabet instead of the countries they were first discovered in.It said it hoped the change will help reduce stigma and discrimination after variants that first emerged in countries including the UK, South Africa, Brazil and India were commonly known as the strains linked to a specific region.Those variants will now be known as the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta variants, respectively, with new strains being given letters down the line of the Greek alphabet. Those strains have become the dominant variants of Covid-19 in many regions, and others are currently listed as variants of interest should they become more dangerous.“All viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, change over time,” WHO said on Monday.“Most changes have little to no impact on the virus’ properties. However, some changes may affect the virus’s properties, such as how easily it spreads, the associated disease severity, or the performance of vaccines, therapeutic medicines, diagnostic tools, or other public health and social measures.”The variants will still be referred to by their existing scientific names, WHO said convey “important scientific information.” The naming system was crafted in partnership with nomenclature and virus taxonomy experts, as well as national health authorities.The labels do not replace existing scientific names, which convey important scientific information & will continue to be used in research. The naming system aims to prevent calling #COVID19 variants by the places where they are detected, which is stigmatizing & discriminatory. pic.twitter.com/MwWGGMXPjn— World Health Organization (WHO) (@WHO) May 31, 2021“While they have their advantages, these scientific names can be difficult to say and recall, and are prone to misreporting,” WHO added. “As a result, people often resort to calling variants by the places where they are detected, which is stigmatising and discriminatory.”The body called on countries and media outlets to adopt the new labels going forward. Since the coronavirus first emerged in China last year, there has been a catastrophic rise in racist violence against Asian Americans.One study found hate crimes targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders rose by 150% in some major cities, and another group recorded more than 6,600 reports of racist violence between March 2020 and March 2021 around the country. A majority of those attacks targeted Asian American women.President Joe Biden signed an anti-Asian hate crime bill into law in May, calling racism an “ugly poison that has long haunted and plagued our nation.”Related...Should England’s Lockdown Really End In June?You're Finally Vaccinated, But Don't Forget These 5 PrecautionsWhy You Might Not Need A Covid Jab Every Year
