WASHINGTON (TheHill) — Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on Sunday cautioned that, despite many app guidelines, 13-year-olds are too young to join social media. “What is the right age for a child to start using social media? Researchers and lawmakers alike have long debated both the health and security risks for children consuming social media content and sharing their own data on the apps. The surgeon general called for increased transparency from social media platforms and safety standards for apps before they hit the digital marketplace. That is not true in general of social media,” Murthy said.

But like many other solar power projects in the country, it’s been delayed as Fortum India struggles to source and pay for necessary components. “For the last six months, we have not been able to finish developing any new projects,” said Manoj Gupta, who oversees Fortum India’s solar projects in India. The government says it wants to encourage the domestic manufacture of components required to produce solar power and reduce the country’s reliance on imports. But only 63 gigawatts of solar power were ultimately installed last year, according to Indian federal government data. Otherwise domestic manufacturing would have taken a strong root already,” said Gyanesh Chaudhary, vice chairman at Vikram Solar, an Indian solar manufacturer.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic climbed into the Rod Laver Arena stands to celebrate his 10th Australian Open championship and record-tying 22nd Grand Slam title Sunday and, after jumping and pumping his fists with his team, he collapsed onto his back, crying. This was also the 93rd ATP tour-level title for Djokovic, breaking a tie with Nadal for the fourth-most. Too speedy and flexible on the run (other than when, moving to his left, Djokovic took a tumble). Yet Djokovic pushes and pushes and pushes some more, until it’s the opponent who is something less than perfect on one swing, either missing or providing an opening to pounce. Still, Srdjan Djokovic did not attend his son’s semifinal or the final.

Somehow, we came out and later won the LG election, Presidential Election and the General Election. In my honest opinion, the general public is not ready for an election. The LG election is only a local election. We were together when we contested the last General Election. Once again these egoistic political factions are demanding to conduct a General Election not the general public.

In 2019, around 1.6 million income tax, Value Added Tax and National Development Tax files existed. The President said that the 13th Amendment to the Constitution has been in the Constitution for about 37 years, and he must enforce it. He said: “If I were not to enforce it, then the case is that someone should bring in a 22nd Amendment and abolish the 13th Amendment.”“Anyone can bring a Private Members Motion to abolish the 13th Amendment. Then the 13th Amendment must be put in force,” the President said. He said there is no middle ground between implementation and non-implementation of the 13th Amendment.

(NewsNation) — Layoffs are sweeping across the tech industry and for some workers, the experience is lonelier than it might have been in years past. They’re being called lonely layoffs, and they’re the result of remote work and a changing employment landscape. So if someone remote gets laid off, their normal community isn’t there for them. Remote workers may not even have the courtesy of being laid off in person, instead receiving the news over Zoom or even email. “There’s this impersonal Zoom layoffs, which are the common standard right now, if you’re doing a mass layoff, and so they naturally feel more impersonal,” White said.

France meanwhile argues their Leclerc tank is heavy on maintenance making it difficult to create a logistical chain in Ukraine. Russia yesterday lashed out at the decision of the US and Germany to send tank battalions to Kyiv, threatening to escalate the war beyond the borders of Ukraine. Zelensky has praised the US and German commitments to send tanks and urged allies to provide large quantities of tanks quickly. The promise of tanks comes as both Ukraine and Russia are expected to launch new offensives in the war.

“You can’t remain competitive or be competitive in the modern economy without internet access,” said Fulk, the Stoke County schools graduate. “My internet speeds with Google Fiber were 1gbps which is blazing fast and only $70 a month,” he said. There is also an issue with how the federal government determines who needs better internet access. As for Stokes County, schools are better connected than they were before the pandemic, said Karen Barker, Stokes County Schools media and technology director. Until internet access is more evenly distributed, however, some students won’t have the means to finish assignments at the library or a nearby elementary school.

A former FBI official has been arrested over his ties to a Russian oligarch charged with violating US sanctions. He was arrested on Saturday afternoon after arriving at JFK following a trip to Sri Lanka and retired from the FBI in 2018.

Both men are facing money laundering charges as well as violating sanctions – with each of the four counts carrying a maximum of 20 years in prison.
