The personal data of 4,500,000 customers who fly global airlines like Air India, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Finnair, and others were compromised in a cybersecurity attack. Passengers who were affected by the breach are those that took any trip on one of many Asian Airlines flights anytime between August 26, 2011, and February 20, 2021, reported Business Today. Information of the customers, such as name, date of birth, contact information, passport details, and credit card data was leaked through the hacking of Air India’s main server, SITA PSS, which is responsible for storing and processing that information. Customers were first notified of the information leak on March 19 through a general announcement on the airline’s website, which stated that they
A Missouri pastor is raising money for two of his congregants who were charged with more than 100 counts of abusing girls at their Christian boarding school, including six counts of statutory rape.

The Householders were arrested in March after alumnae of the school spoke out on TikTok, a popular social media platform.

Bryan Thayer’s night out culminated in a trip to the hospital to have a section of his nose reattached.

Congressional candidate Anthony Bouchard has confessed to impregnating a 14-year-old girl when he was 18, saying it was “like the Romeo and Juliet story.” Bouchard, who is challenging GOP Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming for her seat, admitted to the relationship during a Facebook Live video on Thursday and later disclosed the girl’s age to the Casper Star-Tribune. Bouchard said he went public with the information to get ahead of the story after he learned people were investigating the relationship as part of the opposition to his candidacy. He said he does not believe Cheney was involved in trying to publicize the story. “So, bottom line, it’s a story when I was young, two teenagers, girl gets pregnant,” Bouchard said
On Friday, a judge declared actor Danny Masterson of That 70s Show must stand trial on three counts of rape.

Imagine this scenario: Your boss has just told you, “Bring me results, not explanations — and certainly not excuses.” Then your sales approach, or other solutions you’ve used that have always worked for you to get those results, don’t work this time. The people you ask for help aren’t able to, or they don’t know what to do either. Time is running out, and you’re not getting closer to solving the problem. Then, consider that while it’s OK for you to feel frustrated, you aren’t allowed to show it in any way to anyone at work because of the existing code of conduct. You also can’t show it at home because you know it will raise tensions in your family.
