“Millions of people lose their private data”
One of the biggest data breaches in personal history began just a month ago, almost a month before Target made it public. Hackers gained credit card numbers, pin codes and email addresses of more than 100 million people during peak holiday season. Many states enacted laws to ensure that victims of cyberattacks are notified promptly. Target was one of the most prominent businesses to encourage chip readers after this happened.
“The Largest Political Protest Quickly Comes to an End”
Protesters, more than 3 million, blocked the streets of capital in protest of Donald Trump’s election. They wore pink hats and held signs protesting racism, climate change and homophobia. They all wondered what the next step was after they returned home. The number of protesters who tried to organize the same protest in 2019 dropped significantly by the third attempt. This was mainly because women of color were questioned about their representation and there were also accusations of anti-Semitism.
