Britain’s top antitrust enforcer laid out plans for a new regulator, saying the largest tech companies would face scrutiny for any transaction, no matter how small.

Andrea Coscelli, who leads the Competition and Markets Authority, said he wanted to see a “special parallel regime” for the tech giants that have strategic market status. The new program could also apply a stricter test before clearing any deal, Coscelli said in a speech delivered remotely to a New York conference.

The CMA is increasingly voicing concerns about internet giants swallowing up smaller firms and the new system would automatically have oversight of deals like Facebook Inc.’s purchase of Giphy. The renewed effort to roll back the dominance of these companies comes as the U.K.’s departure from the European Union gives the CMA leeway to devise new approaches to antitrust.

“For me, the case for regulation is

TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee are considering extending the voter registration deadline after the state’s website errors and glitches on Monday, the last day to register before the general election.

“This morning I met with Governor DeSantis to brief him on the status of the online voter registration system and the challenges we encountered last night due to unprecedented volume and traffic to our website,” Lee said in a prepared statement.

Lee also said her department, which oversees elections, was working to make sure the errors were an honest mistake and not an attack on the system.

“We’re exploring all options to ensure that all eligible registrants have the ability to register to vote and will work with our state and federal law-enforcement partners to ensure this was not a deliberate act against the voting process,” Lee said.

By 2015 she was the director of culture and historic preservation for the whole state. In the role, she pushed back against a view of art as an uneconomical sector, instead finding ways it could support both artists and the economy.

It’s hard to think of an institution whose purpose and specialties would be a better fit for Newman-Scott than BRIC. One of the foremost arts organizations in the city, its focus spans the visual and performing arts, modern media and education. The leading presenter of free programming in the borough, BRIC is expressly focused on increasing public access to the arts.

It’s a mission that easily could’ve been challenged by the pandemic. Many of BRIC’s peers are facing existential questions. Institutions from the Met to the Brooklyn Museum have had to lay off workers. But BRIC hasn’t, Newman-Scott said.

“We unfortunately have become, as members of the creative economy,
