WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States on Thursday imposed a broad array of sanctions on Russia to punish it for alleged interference in U.S. elections, cyber-hacking, bullying Ukraine and other "malign" acts.

Ireland is on track to ease restrictions from May 4 to allow the phased reopening of all retail stores and hairdressers and will also develop a plan for further reopenings in June and July, Deputy Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said on Thursday. However, it is unlikely to follow the more rapid reopening that neighbouring England has pursued on the back of a more advanced vaccination programme, which Varadkar said amounted to an "experiment" with many not yet vaccinated against COVID-19. Ireland shut most shops, building sites and hospitality in late December after a surge of COVID-19 infections.
The decision by the Japanese government to release contaminated water -- left over from the Fukushima nuclear disaster -- into the ocean, is being met with skepticism and worry by many of those people dependent on the sea for their livelihoods.Masao Takahagi is one of them. Fishing communities like his in Iwaki, Japan had only recently resumed their full operations. The region was devastated by the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear power plant disaster 10 years ago."I think in the end, there's only the sea where the treated water can be released. But as a fisherman, if they do that, even if they say the fish will be fine, the thing I'm most afraid of is the damaging rumours that may be caused."Over a million tons of water is being released. It's been treated and diluted to within regulatory limits, and will be pushed out in stages starting in about two years.Catches from the waters near the plant are also routinely tested for radiation, even though most fishing restrictions have been lifted. Tokyo Electric Power, owner of the power plant said they would compensate those suffering from reputational harm. Fishing communities in Japan aren't the only ones worrying.In Seoul, South Korea's largest fish market, Noryangjin market, some workers are conducting daily checks on radiation levels of seafood imported from Japan. This is fish shop owner Yoon In-ja: "It is not like I know the scientific grounds for the damage and I still haven't felt any direct impact regarding Japan's decision to release radioactive water. However, as I am running a business at a seafood market, it can never be a good news."Both South Korea and China are objecting to Tokyo's decision, and South Korea is considering legal action.Japan has argued the water release is necessary to press ahead with the complex decommissioning of the plant.For Takahagi and Yoon, they'll be watching very closely.
Americans are spending more than ever on streaming services, and many of them have found a way to subsidize their binge habit — by reselling their login information. New survey results shared with TheWrap by Red Points, a firm that helps companies fight piracy and fraud, indicates this may be more common than you think, with 40% of surveyed U.S. adults saying they don’t just share streaming passwords but resell them. These covert password deals are especially popular among younger customers, with two-thirds of respondents ages 18 to 30 saying they pay to use someone else’s login info for at least one service. For millions of steaming customers, “Netflix and chill” has turned into “Netflix and bill” (on Venmo and other services). Rather than spending $18 per month, for example, on Netflix’s highest-tier subscription, which offers access to four screens at the same time, these thrifty streamers can instead have a friend pitch in $9 and quickly slice the monthly payment in half. It may not seem like much, but it adds up fast: Shaving $9 off your Netflix account each month would save you $108 per year — and that’s just for one service. Netflix has historically taken a...Read original story Netflix and Bill: 40% of Streaming Subscription Passwords Are Resold At TheWrap
