Hatem Bazian, a veteran pro-Palestinian activist in his fifties, lives with his family on a quiet street in North Berkeley, near the campus of the University of California, where he lectures. Early on the morning of May 10, 2017, as Bazian was about to drive his teenage daughter to school, he noticed fliers on the windshields of cars parked on his block. At first, Bazian assumed that they were advertisements for a new movie or restaurant. When he looked more closely at the flier that had been left on his BMW sedan, he realized that it featured a photograph of his face, below a tagline that read, “He supports terror.” Bazian quickly folded up the flier so his daughter wouldn’t see it. Born in Jordan to a father from the West Bank city of Nablus and a mother from Jerusalem, Bazian

Massachusetts-based biotech firm Thermo Fisher says it will stop selling equipment to Xinjiang, the province where Chinese authorities have launched a statewide campaign to monitor and track Uighurs.

Google carries Alphabet to strong profits, as firm goes on defensive over harassment sackings IT MAY TECHNICALLY be a subsidiary of Alphabet, but nobody should be surprised to hear that Google is still the money-maker of the business. It's like adding up a household income comprised of a paperboy, a lemonade stand owner, a part-time bookshop assistant and a global investment banker. To that end, the results of Alphabet's Q3 earnings are both impressive and heavily reliant on Google. Profits arrived at $9.19bn, or $13.06 a share, which was a pleasant surprise given analysts were expecting something closer to $10.42. Despite this, the company still missed its own revenue projections, leading to a 4 per cent drop in company stock. In all, revenue hit $33.74bn, up from $27.77bn yea...

In addition to taking precautions related to GDPR, Google is facing greater scrutiny in the U.S. because of the ways large platforms like Facebook and YouTube have been manipulated by foreign actors to influence consumers, particularly when it comes to political elections. Green cited the Cambridge Analytica scandal twice during Thursday's conference call, which made clear how a third party was improperly using Facebook user data for ad targeting. "In my view, Google's decision to remove this ID offering is driven by their increasing need to reduce risk against malicious data enablement, like what we saw Cambridge Analytica do with social data," Green said. "The risk is similar for both Google and Facebook. T...
