The California Supreme Court has recently established the ABC rule for independent contractors, and appears to be applying retroactively. Here is a four-minute video on the changes.

The Firefox browser will soon by default automatically block all attempts at cross-site tracking. First, the browser will block all slow-loading trackers (with ads being the biggest offender here). Those are trackers that take more than five seconds to load. Then, the browser will also strip all cookies and block all storage access from third-party trackers. In addition, Mozilla is also working on blocking cryptomining scripts and trackers that fingerprint users. Officials note, in the physical world, users wouldn’t expect hundreds of vendors to follow them from store to store, spying on the products they look at or purchase, and users should have the same expectations of privacy on the web.

Seven ways EPA's affordable clean energy rule is a better approach than the clean power plan.
EPA doesn’t stray beyond the bounds of the Clean Air Act: The original CPP was built on an unprecedented reading of CAA that compelled owners of coal- and gas-powered facilities regulated by EPA to purchase electricity from other facilities, fuel switch, or even build new low-emitting generating capacity. This “outside-the-fence” interpretation allowed EPA to set far more stringent requirements on states, but the agency’s highly questionable authority to implement such a framework was a focal point of litigation, and likely a contributing factor in the Supreme Court’s extraordinary stay of the rule.
