The Covid-19 pandemic prompted a massive shift to remote work, leading companies to quickly embrace a new hybrid work environment. Despite the unexpected departure from the office, many employees have warmed up to the idea of working from home over the past few months. A recent Gallup poll reported that 59% of U.S. workers would like to continue working from home “as much as possible” after the pandemic subsides. Business leaders have taken notice, with companies like Google working remotely into next summer and Facebook offering employees the flexibility to work remotely even after offices open again. In order to meet employees’ new expectations about the workplace, a hybrid work environment is the way of the future.

The French Tennis Federation (FFT) has outlined its ambition to be a leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based fan and player experiences at this year’s French Open at Roland Garros, hoping more intelligent digital services will help compensate for the lack of spectators.

This year’s tournament was supposed to take place in early summer but was postponed until this week due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It had been hoped that up to 10,000 fans would be allowed through the gates, but tightened restrictions mean just 1,000 people will set foot on the ground.

For nearly two months, tweets by far-right Hindu nationalists in India doxing dozens of young interfaith couples — usually Muslim men marrying Hindu women — circulated on Twitter.

“This is going to be a long thread,” one of the accounts involved in the doxing said, following it up with 17 more tweets. Each tweet contained pictures of government documents including names, ages, occupations, addresses, and photographs of Hindu-Muslim couples in India. “Look at these pictures,” another tweet from the same account said. “Who instigates these couples to get together? It can’t be that they just ‘fall in love.’”

On Monday, as outrage mounted in India, Twitter finally took down some of the largest threads, even though people had been reporting them for weeks.

But more than half a dozen other tweets doxing interfaith couples remained after the first takedowns. One of them included a tweet from a politician from India’s
