Katy Perry would love to go back in time and give her boy-crazy younger self some sage advice. The pop star, who revisits her teenage years in the video for her new Pokemon-inspired single Electric, insists she has few regrets in life, but she would have liked her early life to have been less about the opposite sex. "I stumbled, I fell, I made mistakes," Katy tells PopSugar. "I learned from all of it. But I was pretty boy crazy. I think I was always searching for real love and true love." The Firework singer, who endured a painful split from her first husband, British comedian Russell Brand after just 14 months of marriage, was due to wed another Brit, Orlando Bloom last year (20), but their plans have been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now she's happily in love, the star wishes she could tell her younger self to not let worries about her love life get to her. Asked what she would say to a young Katy if she could hop in a time machine, the 36-year-old said, "Lose some time to be emotional about the boys... "I'd say, 'Don't worry, keep swinging, make mistakes. Don't read the comments. Don't scroll down on the comments, and know how to separate real life from internet life. And boys aren't mature until they're 35, at least.'"

Multiple ransomware groups claimed they were shutting down or scaling back operations on Friday as the U.S. government ramped up pressure while tech companies, cryptocurrency exchanges and others worried about getting caught in the crossfire. DarkSide, the Russian-speaking gang blamed by the FBI for a hacking attack that led to a six-day fuel pipeline shutdown, said it was going out of business after losing access to some of its servers. Another major criminal gang said it would forbid encryption attacks on critical infrastructure, and forums where such gangs recruit partners said they were banning ads related to ransomware, analysts said.

‘She looks so much like Pamela it’s scary’
Russia launched a crackdown on foreign media on Friday, with authorities announcing enforcement proceedings against Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Moscow bureau over unpaid fines and newly designating the independent online outlet VTimes as a "foreign agent". Russian bailiffs showed up at the Moscow bureau of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) on Friday to notify the US-funded broadcaster about the launch of enforcement proceedings over unpaid fines.RFE/RL President Jamie Fly said the broadcaster's Moscow bank accounts were frozen in what he denounced as a serious escalation in the Russian government's campaign to drive it out of the country.“RFE/RL will continue to fight these desperate attempts by the Kremlin to censor uncomfortable truths,” Fly said in a statement. “We will not be silenced by these heavy-handed tactics and we will not abandon our Russian audience.” Also on Friday, Russia designated The Moscow Times’ Russian-language partner VTimes a "foreign agent" as authorities pile more pressure on independent media.VTimes was added to the list of "foreign agents" because it is registered in the Netherlands, the justice ministry said in a statement.The news site was founded last year by the senior editors and journalists of Vedomosti business daily, who quit after the appointment of a pro-Kremlin editor in chief.The ministry's decision came less than a month after Meduza, a popular Russian-language news website based in Latvia, also received the controversial foreign agent label, which forced it to launch a crowdfunding campaign to survive the loss of advertising revenue. The Moscow-based First Anticorruption Media has also received the foreign agent designation.The term “foreign agent” carries strong pejorative connotations in Russia.Disclaimer requiredLast year, Russia’s Roskomnadzor media watchdog ordered any media designated as foreign agents, including RFE/RL, to add a lengthy statement to news reports, social media posts and audiovisual materials specifying that the content was created by an outlet “performing the functions of a foreign agent”. The move, which applies to nongovernmental political organisations and media receiving foreign funding, has been widely criticised as aiming to discredit critical reporting and dissent.Roskomnadzor has filed 520 violation cases against RFE/RL, which could entail fines totaling $2.4 million.In a call with reporters, Fly said that the broadcaster has refused to pay the fines because it considers them unlawful.“We have been very clear throughout this that we will not pay these fines,” he said. “We believe that the labeling is illegitimate, it violates Russia's own constitution. We aren't going to back down in the face of this pressure.”The broadcaster has asked the European Court of Human Rights to order Russia to refrain from enforcing the fines until the court can make a full ruling on Roskomnadzor’s moves, which RFE/RL contends violates the European Convention on Human Rights.US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has condemned Russia’s mounting pressure on the media as a sign of the Kremlin’s weakness.The stand-off creates new friction in Washington’s ties with Moscow, which are already at post-Cold War lows over an array of issues including Ukraine, Syria, sanctions and the jailing of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.US State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter said the move was part of an attempt to deny Russians access to independent news sources.“This is Russia’s latest attempt to suppress independent media and deny the Russian people access to objective news. We will continue to unequivocally support RFE/RL and its affiliates, and to stand up for freedom of expression, including for members of the press,” Porter told reporters.The US multimedia news outlet is funded by a grant Congress through the United States Agency for Global Media.(FRANCE 24 with AP, Reuters and AFP)

"Rula Jebreal non conosce Propaganda Live". Diego Bianchi apre Propaganda Live soffermandosi sul 'caso Rula Jebreal'. La giornalista avrebbe dovuto partecipare per discutere la crisi israelo-palestinese, ma ha rinunciato dopo aver visto che il suo nome -in un tweet del programma- era inserito in una lista comprendente altri 7 ospiti di sesso maschile, senza altre donne invitate. "Siamo diventati noi la notizia e questo ci sorprende. Avevamo deciso di raccontare quelli che sta succedendo tra Israele e Palestina con un’ospite, la giornalista Rula Jebreal. Non la conosco, ci siamo parlati ieri sera ed eravamo molto contenti di avere la sua competenza in trasmissione. Il venerdì mattina utilizziamo i social per comunicare quali sono gli ospiti della puntata. Noi inseriamo un po’ tutti quanti", dice Diego Bianchi. "ual è l’errore? Inserire l’ospite, in questo caso Rula Jebreal, insieme ad un elenco e a parti del cast che si compone con dinamiche casuali. Morale della favola, Rula Jebreal ha visto questo post stamattina e si è trovata unica donna tra 7 uomini. Per coerenza ha scelto di non venire, Rula Jebreal non conosce la nostra trasmissione altrimenti saprebbe che questo programma, tra tante difficoltà e tanti errori, ha vinto il Diversity Award", afferma ancora. "hiamiamo una persona in trasmissione perché è competente, non per il sesso. Chiudo dicendo che l’episodio è spiacevole perché avevamo chiamato Rula Jebreal non in quanto donna. Ci sembrava la persona migliore, per storia e competenze, per intervenire. Mi dispiace, qui saremo tutti uomini e non ci sarà nessuno a parlare di Palestina con quell’approccio che avremmo voluto condividere", dice dando inizio alla puntata.

Two migrant workers from Mexico are suing a Louisiana crawfish processor over wages they say fell well below the minimum wage. The federal lawsuit filed this week in Alexandria says the two routinely worked 10 or more hours a day, six days a week, peeling and packing crawfish at Crawfish Processing LLC in Marksville. The suit was filed on behalf of Norma Edith Torres Quinonez and Martha Icela Flores Gaxiola by attorneys for Texas RioGrande Legal Aid against Crawfish Processing and owner Charles Bernard.
