Thaler wrote to committee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., Ranking Member Frank Pallone, D-N.J., and subcommittee Chairman Michael Burgess, R-Texas, and Ranking Member Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., in advance of today’s mark-up.“One way to strengthen the legislation would be to require FTC rulemaking authority for data security standards, as was recommended by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) witness at last week’s hearing,” Thaler wrote. “An additional way would be to include language to make those entities that fail to meet a data protection standard liable for any costs incurred from a breach of their systems.“At the very least,” he continued, “the legislation needs to ensure that credit unions and others maintain a right to seek legal redress of any costs that they incur from a data breach.” continue reading »last_img read more

World Travel and Tourism Council: Mandatory wearing of masks will protect passengers and workers

first_imgPeople must learn to live with COVID-19 until the vaccine is widely available, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) said. Namely, as countries reopen their borders, wearing face masks provide greater personal protection to users as well as those around them. “Wearing masks must not be politicized but must become a part of everyday life to ensure that everyone enjoys a safe journey until a vaccine against COVID-19 is found. We call on the private sector and global governments to encourage their use and make wearing the mask new and normal. ”, said Gloria Guevara, president and CEO of the WTTC. Also, travelers around the world are encouraged to join a social media campaign launched with the label # wear2care. Frequent hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers complement the use of face masks that can significantly reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the WTTC points out. The WTTC’s advice stems from evidence that countries where face masks are widely used are recovering faster. But the World Travel and Tourism Council didn’t just stop at the advice, but asked governments around the world to impose face masks as well as private sector support to remind customers of their obligations to protect their own and passengers ’health.center_img The well-being of travelers and the millions of people working in the travel and tourism sector is a central part of the protocol. In addition to being supported by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the protocol has been widely accepted by thousands of companies around the world. Travelers around the world can join the WTTC campaign by sharing pictures of themselves traveling with their masks and sharing the hashtag # wear2care.last_img read more

David Luiz sold to Arsenal after ignoring Frank Lampard’s Chelsea tactics

first_imgAdvertisement Comment David Luiz sold to Arsenal after ignoring Frank Lampard’s Chelsea tactics David Luiz signed for Arsenal from Chelsea on transfer deadline day (Picture: Getty)Frank Lampard’s decision to sanction the sale of David Luiz to Arsenal was prompted by the defender choosing to ignore his tactics during a pre-season game against Red Bull Salzburg.The experienced Brazilian centre-half, a former teammate of Lampard’s at Stamford Bridge, moved across London on transfer deadline day in an £8million deal that appeared to come out of the blue.Luiz has featured prominently in pre-season under Lampard but the tension between the pair came to a head following the 5-3 win in Salzburg.Maurizio Sarri’s successor had instructed his defenders to play out from the back but, according to The Athletic, Lampard was dismayed at the number of ambitious long balls Luiz attempted.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityThe 32-year-old was subsequently dropped for the following game against Borussia Monchengladbach before he was told not to train with the rest of the first team squad ahead of his move to Arsenal.Luiz has made an inauspicious start to life under Unai Emery at the Emirates and was at fault for two goals in the recent 3-1 defeat Liverpool, before he gave another less than commanding display against Tottenham in last Sunday’s north London derby.‘I think [the criticism] is normal, in my all my career it has been like that, especially when you are a defender,’ said Luiz after Arsenal battled back from 2-0 down to secure a creditable point.‘Strikers never lose games unless if they miss a penalty in the last minute, this is football.‘The defenders have to take responsibility and take [criticism] in a good way, in a humble way. ‘We need to understand when we make a mistake and say that.’ Metro Sport ReporterThursday 5 Sep 2019 9:56 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link101Shares Advertisement Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham: Unai Emery press conferenceTo view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video Play VideoLoaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%PlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 7:47FullscreenArsenal 2-2 Tottenham: Unai Emery press conferencehttps://metro.co.uk/video/arsenal-2-2-tottenham-unai-emery-press-conference-1997076/This is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Vroum motors to Grade Two glory

first_imgVroum Vroum Mag proved a different class to her opponents once more as she romped to victory in the Grade Two Irish Stallion Farms EBF Dawn Run Mares Novice Chase at Limerick. Our Katie tried to lay down a challenge but she could not match the leader’s jumping in the closing stages and faded out of contention. Vroum Vroum Mag went on to win by eight lengths but the margin over 50-1 outsider Shesaportrait could have been much further. Walsh said: “She jumped super. It wasn’t the plan to be in front going up the back but she was travelling so well. “I thought Our Katie was the danger but our jumping put her under pressure.” Mullins said: “She was very good. That was sort of the novice mares’ Gold Cup in Ireland so we kept her back for that. It’s the biggest prize for novice mares. “She’s in the Ryanair Gold Cup in Fairyhouse and we will look at that. We could look at Aintree as well, but I would probably look to keep her at home for this year and go to Fairyhouse or Punchestown. I’m not sure which.” The 4-11 favourite, trained by Willie Mullins, took her unblemished record over fences to four as she won with the minimum of fuss in the hands of Ruby Walsh. Jumping to the front six out, Vroum Vroum Mag was never out of second gear as she dismissed her rivals in comprehensive fashion. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
