Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish & More Protest Abortion Bans With New Planned Parenthood Campaign 

 

Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga and Lizzo are among 136 artists who have joined Planned Parenthood to protest a recent wave of laws in states across the U.S. restricting access to abortion.

The music engagement side to the reproductive healthcare nonprofit's larger Bans Off My Body campaign launched over the weekend with a full-page ad in Billboard magazine, signed by dozens of artists. Over the next few months, Planned Parenthood will call fans to action at music festivals like Jay-Z's Made in America in Philadelphia and Music Midtown in Atlanta, with Georgia having just signed into law a so-called "heartbeat bill" banning abortion six weeks into pregnancy. The nonprofit will also have a presence on a number of artists' national tours this year.

Low-Wage Workers Are Being Sued for Unpaid Medical Bills by a Nonprofit Christian Hospital That Employs Them 

 

This year, a Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare housekeeper left her job just three hours into her shift and caught a bus to Shelby County General Sessions Court.

Wearing her black and gray uniform, she had a different kind of appointment with her employer: The hospital was suing her for unpaid medical bills.

In 2017, the nonprofit hospital system based in Memphis sued the woman for the cost of hospital stays to treat chronic abdominal pain she experienced before the hospital hired her.

She now owes Methodist more than $23,000, including around $5,800 in attorney’s fees.

It’s surreal, she said, to be sued by the organization that pays her $12.25 an hour. “You know how much you pay me. And the money you’re paying, I can’t live on,” said the housekeeper, who asked that her name not be used for fear that the hospital would fire her for talking to a reporter.

A Fecal Parasite Is Causing More Disease Outbreaks, and Swimming Pools May Be to Blame, CDC Says 

 

A recent announcement from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may put a damper on summer fun. A fecal parasite often spread by swimming is causing an increasing number of illness outbreaks, the agency says.

The number of disease outbreaks involving the parasite Cryptosporidium, also known as Crypto, increased by about 13% each year from 2009 to 2017, according to a new report from the CDC. People can become ill with cryptosporidiosis after exposure to contaminated human or animal fecal matter, developing symptoms including nausea, cramps and diarrhea that can last weeks and lead to serious malnutrition and dehydration.

You should cover your phone's selfie camera, too 

 

Take a look at your smartphone. Perhaps you're reading this story on it, and the device is planted firmly in your hands. Maybe you're on your laptop, and your phone is resting face up on your desk. Now, focus your attention on the phone's selfie camera. Try to imagine what's in its field of view.

Unless your phone's forward-facing camera has a cover on it, you may not be the only one with that picture in their mind — or on their computer screen. Unless, that is, you have a selfie-cam cover.

It wasn't long ago that the idea of covering a laptop webcam was considered "paranoid," as if to suggest that only the tinfoil-hat wearing would think such a measure necessary. That consensus began to shift, in part, when Mark Zuckerberg accidentally revealed that even the King of Sharing had tape obscuring the view from his laptop's camera.

There are real reasons to believe that hackers — both state actors and otherwise — gain access to innocent people's computer webcams. Just ask security researcher Patrick Wardle, whose work helped uncover a 13-year-old strain of Mac malware that was developed seemingly to spy on regular people through their webcams.

Air Canada Passenger Wakes Up Locked in Empty, Dark Plane After Falling Asleep Mid-Flight 

 

A passenger who was getting some shut eye on a recent Air Canada flight woke up to find herself in a nightmare scenario.

Tiffani O’Brien was traveling from Quebec City to Toronto after a weekend trip, when she fell asleep mid-flight. When she woke up hours later still buckled in her seat, she says she was completely alone and the plane was “freezing cold” and “pitch black,” according to a Facebook post shared by a woman who identifies herself as O’Brien’s friend.

Give up your password or go to jail: Police push legal boundaries to get into cellphones 

 

William Montanez is used to getting stopped by the police in Tampa, Florida, for small-time traffic and marijuana violations; it’s happened more than a dozen times. When they pulled him over last June, he didn’t try to hide his pot, telling officers, "Yeah, I smoke it, there's a joint in the center console, you gonna arrest me for that?"

They did arrest him, not only for the marijuana but also for two small bottles they believed contained THC oil — a felony — and for having a firearm while committing that felony (they found a handgun in the glove box).

Then things got testy.

As they confiscated his two iPhones, a text message popped up on the locked screen of one of them: “OMG, did they find it?”

Now that iTunes is going away, here's what will happen to your music and movies 

 

Apple announced on Monday that it would phase out iTunes on its upcoming operating system in favor of three new apps: Music, TV and Podcasts.

Though iTunes as we know it will be no more, you don't have to worry about losing those iTunes playlists you made back in the summer of 2006. The platform's features will still exist on macOS Catalina -- they'll just be spread out across the different apps, similar to how they are on iOS.
Here's what Apple says that will look like.

You'll still have access to all your media

Too Many People Want to Travel 

 

Late in May, the Louvre closed. The museum’s workers walked out, arguing that overcrowding at the home of the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo had made the place dangerous and unmanageable. “The Louvre suffocates,” the workers’ union said in a statement written in French, citing the “total inadequacy” of the museum’s facilities to manage the high volume of visitors.

Send a subscription to a dad, grad, or any reader you’d like—and get a second subscription absolutely free.

Half a world away, a conga line of mountaineers waited to approach the summit of Mount Everest, queued up on a knife’s-edge ridge, looking as if they had chosen to hit the DMV at lunchtime. A photograph of the pileup went viral; nearly a dozen climbers died, with guides and survivors arguing that overcrowding at the world’s highest peak was a primary cause, if not the only one.

Such incidents are not isolated. Crowds of Instagrammers caused a public-safety debacle during a California poppy super bloom. An “extreme environmental crisis” fomented a “summer of action” against visitors to the Spanish island of Mallorca. Barcelona and Venice and Reykjavik and Dubrovnik, inundated. Beaches in Thailand and Mexico and the Philippines, destroyed. Natural wonders from the Sierra Nevadas to the Andes, jeopardized. Religious sites from Cambodia to India to Rome, damaged.

Why You Shouldn't Use The Wi-Fi In Your Airbnb, According To A Hacker 

 

Most Airbnb users book stays with no major issues. But staying in a stranger’s house means you inevitably make yourself vulnerable to some risks, some of which have included scams, hidden cameras and discrimination. It can be hard to let your guard down while renting an Airbnb ? and you shouldn’t, even if everything seems to check out.

That’s because there could be another danger lurking in your rental that’s harder to detect: the Wi-Fi.

Beware The Wi-Fi

You probably know to use extra caution when using public Wi-Fi networks such as those at your local coffee shop or the airport. Even when a password is required to access the network, you’re at risk of a number of different kinds of attacks, according to Jason Glassberg, an “ethical hacker” and co-founder of Casaba Security.

Can businesses force workers to get vaccinated? 
 

Business owners concerned about measles outbreaks should consult lawyers or human resources experts on how to tackle the issue.

Employers are generally prohibited from requiring employees to undergo any medical procedures, such as vaccinations, under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers measles outbreaks so contagious they affect up to 90% of the people around them.

3 Pit Bulls Attack Woman On Street, Owner Surrenders Dogs For Euthanasia 

 

An elderly woman was hospitalized after three pit bulls escaped from a mobile home and attacked her publicly in Brooksville, Florida, on Monday morning.

The Hernando County Fire Rescue and an animal enforcement officer arrived at the scene Monday morning after receiving a call that an elderly woman was attacked by dogs and had severe dog bites on both legs. The caller, a passerby who saved the woman and put her in a truck, said he had performed basic first aid and that he waited along Spring Lake Highway for emergency crews to arrive. The woman, whose identity and age was not revealed, was airlifted to a trauma center.

Officials said the dogs attacked the woman while she was taking a morning walk. One of the dogs also tried to attack the officers who were at the scene to get them. The officers used “non-lethal bean-bag rounds” to subdue the pit bulls. The dogs were then taken to Hernando County Animal Services.

Why your phone gets so damn hot and how to keep it from overheating 

 

If you've ever left your iPhone or Android phone in a car on a hot summer day for an extended amount of time, you likely have experienced a phone that's overheated. There's typically a warning message -- similar to that shown on the iPhone below -- letting you know the phone has all but stopped working because the temperature inside is far too hot to function.

While a phone can overheat while you're using it, that's a relatively uncommon occurrence. It's more likely that internal temperatures will rise when you're spending a day at the beach after it's been in the sun for too long.

If you find yourself staring at a warning message that your phone is too hot, don't freak out! It only takes a few minutes to get it back down to a suitable temperature.

Trump administration announces rollback of health care regulations protecting LGBTQ people 
 

The Health and Human Services Department (HHS) announced Friday that it is proposing a rule that would change a regulation under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that expanded anti-discrimination protections to transgender individuals.

The new regulation would change the 2016 rule that banned discrimination -- on the basis of sex and against trangender people -- by health care providers that receive federal funding.

In a release announcing the proposed change, HHS pointed to a Texas judge's December 2016 injunction that kept the Obama-era rule from being implemented. U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor sided with the state of Texas and other plaintiffs who argued that the Obama rule would force health care providers and insurers to enable transgender people to be treated and get coverage for gender transitions and abortions, despite their religious beliefs or against their medical judgment.

Should you text with your boss? 

 

Having your phone blow up with texts from your boss is enough to get your heart racing.

Text messages tend to carry a heavier sense of urgency than an email or instant message -- whether that's the intent or not.

While you might be comfortable texting in your personal life, not everyone is open to using it for workplace communications.

Managers and their employees should set expectations of how they prefer to communicate in and out of the office. Some workers might find texting easier than emails or phone calls, while others might find it too invasive.
People are sloppier and lazier when it comes to texting"

"Have a conversation to determine preferences and reach an agreement on when you are going to use what form of communication," said Marie McIntyre, a career coach and author of "Secrets to Winning at Office Politics."

California Senate advances bill to provide abortion pill access for public university students at no cost 

 

The California state Senate passed a piece of legislation on Monday that would require its public university systems — the University of California and California State University — to offer students access to abortion pills at no cost in the early weeks of pregnancy. The initiative would be made possible through privately-funded grants and insurance coverage.


The bill, Senate Bill 24, the College Student Right to Access Act, mandates that student health services clinics at all 34 public university campuses in California provide women access to "abortion by medication techniques" in early pregnancy, according to the bill's text. If passed, the legislation would give $200,000 to each student health center to pay for necessary training and equipment, and an additional $200,000 to set up a 24-hour hotline. The service would come at no cost to the woman seeking an abortion.

"We're going to expand access because that's what we do in California: we lead," said Sen. Connie Leyva, the bill's primary sponsor, in a telephone interview with CBS News on Tuesday. Senate analysis of the proposal notes that according to the National Institutes of Health, "ending a pregnancy with medications is an option for women who are less than ten weeks pregnant and would like to have an abortion at home with a less invasive procedure."
