Target temporarily closes more than 100 stores as protests continue

  • New York (CNN Business) - Target is closing more than 100 stores as protests continue to erupt across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police.
  • In many cases, anger and frustration boiled over — resulting in clashes between police and protestors, leaving buildings burned and retail stores, including at least one Target location, looted or vandalized.
  • In Minnesota, 33 Target stores will close, in addition to 46 stores in California, eight in Oregon and more elsewhere across the country.
  • Workers affected by the store closures will be paid for up to 14 days of regularly scheduled hours during the closures, including the premium pay they would have received as part of Target's Covid-19 policies, the company said in the release.
  • Workers may also have the option to work at other Target locations near the closed stores.

This $350 "Anti-5G" Device Is Apparently Just a USB Stick

  • At the same time, states are also rolling out manual contact tracing programs using trained volunteers, but scammers are piggybacking on these urgent public health efforts to send bogus SMS text messages that claim to be related to contact tracing and lure victims to click malicious links.
  • But researchers from Amnesty International found that the app had a major configuration flaw that exposed data of more than a million users who have downloaded the app.
  • Amnesty reported the vulnerability and Qatari officials quickly patched it, but the bug exposed sensitive details like names, national ID numbers, location data, and information about users' health.
  • Amnesty researchers also point out that while it's positive that the issue was fixed quickly, the app still has problematic, privacy-infringing features like GPS and Bluetooth location trackers.

Step by step bar-charts using Plotly Express

  • Plotly Express is a new high-level Python visualisation library part of Plotly v.4, that allows to plot complex charts using simple syntax.
  • For this, I plotted location on the x-axis and the number of ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ answers on the y-axis.
  • Again, using the groupby() function I group my rows by Location first and then Decision, essentially creating a group, within a group.
  • I also create an additional column called Decision_qt, which holds the number of ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ answers per location.
  • Now, the next thing I want to look into is the number of people that divorced after getting married on the show.
  • I also create an additional column ‘Maried_qt’ with the total number of married people in each row.
  • This means that I need to convert the information I want to plot into a series from the pandas dataframe using the pd.Series() function.

Zynn, a TikTok clone, topped the App Store by paying users to watch videos

  • TikTok has a new competitor: Zynn, a nearly button-for-button clone of TikTok that differentiates itself with one key twist — it pays users to sign up, watch videos, and convince others to follow suit.
  • But the app also has a referral scheme that pays users for getting others to sign up and use the service themselves, which likely went a long way toward helping it spread.
  • The service also came pre-filled with videos because the app is able to pull content from Kuaishou.
  • Like TikTok, the app launches you straight into watching a video the first time you open it.
  • There’s no option to create an account directly with Zynn — it has to be tied to some other service: Google, Facebook, Twitter, or your phone number.
  • I tried to link my Google account, but Zynn wouldn’t let me proceed when I declined to share my contact information.

My Messy Analytics Breakup

  • As the de facto analytics standard for sites of all sizes, Google Analytics was a no-brainer to add to Digital Inklings so that I could know how many people are visiting the site and get a little hit of dopamine every time someone reads an article.1 But over the last several months, I’ve thought far more about this mindless decision than all the others.
  • But before I did, I wanted to run both services simultaneously for a week to compare my new analytics data with Google and make sure it was correct.
  • But similar to companies, people also want to get the most out of the internet with the least amount of effort, and many of these tools are a lot like my analytics service — confusing, hard to use, and sometimes just jank.
