The ‘chilling complicity’ of Google in China

#EventprofReads: Week 79

Here’s this week’s #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

That Apple is first public company to be worth $1 trillion, on BBC:

“… no matter what your view of the company and its products, Apple devices have changed the world – and today made financial history as well.”

That Google plans to launch censored search engine in China, in The Telegraph:

“… sites and search terms about human rights, democracy and religion will also be blacklisted.”

The US Treasury is backing open banking, a FinTech charter and sandboxes, in Finextra:

“… recommendations are designed to achieve four broad things: the embrace of responsible use of consumer financial data; the creation of a streamlined regulatory environment that fosters innovation and avoids fragmentation; the modernisation of regulations for a host of products and activities; and the facilitation of regulatory sandboxes that promote innovation.”

Why London black cab drivers are planning to sue Uber for £1.25Bn, in The Telegraph:

“… the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association is drawing up plans to sue the taxi-hailing app, claiming that each driver has lost at least £10,000 over the last five years due to the manner in which Uber has operated.”

And finally… How hot it has to get before you can legally go home from work, according to Stylist:

“…the TUC has asked employers to allow staff to take frequent breaks, provide a regular supply of cool drinks and take measures to cool the workplace down if the temperature exceeds 24°C indoors.”
