BIARRITZ, France (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Johnson on Saturday ordered all British airports to upgrade to the latest 3-D baggage scanning technology by December 2022.

The technology is currently on trial at London’s Heathrow airport, and could eventually mean passengers no longer have to remove liquids and electrical equipment from cabin baggage as they pass through security screening.

“By making journeys through UK airports easier than ever, this new equipment will help boost the vital role our airports play in securing the UK’s position as a global hub for trade, tourism and investment,” Johnson said.

Undefeated British fighter Anthony Yarde gets his first chance to land a world title tonight with a showdown tonight against Sergey Kovalev in the WBO light-heavyweight champ’s hometown of Chelyabinsk, Russia. You can live stream Yarde vs Kovalev as it happens – it’s even FREE to do so in some areas.

Sergey Kovalev vs Anthony Yarde – when and where

What date is it? Tonight is fight night! Saturday, August 24 has arrived and the fighters are ready to rumble.

What time is it? The main event is expected to start no earlier than midnight local time in Russia – so that should mean the action will kick off around 8pm BST for viewers in the UK.

Where is it? The venue for tonight’s fight is the 7,500 capacity Traktor Sport Palace in Russia, the regular home of Kontinental Hockey League team Traktor Chelyabinsk. 

Now 28-years-old, Londoner Yarde has notched up 18 straight wins – all but one via knockout – and a growing reputation in the UK, but tonight marks his first major test on the international stage.

Kovalev, 36,  is a three-time world champion at light-heavyweight and has fought for a world title in each of his last 15 bouts.

Along with the intimidating atmosphere of an eastern Russia home crowd cheering on their hero, Yarde must also contend with a well-focused opponent who has plenty riding on tonight’s fight – a big money match up with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez looks the the likely reward for Kovalev should he see off Yarde.

You can live stream Yarde vs  Kovalev fight anywhere in the world using the guide below. 

Watch the boxing from outside your country

If you’re looking to watch tonight’s fight but you’re out of the country, your plans may be scuppered. That’s because broadcasters geo-block their coverage if you try to watch your domestic TV from abroad.

But there’s a clever workaround for this, which is perfectly legal (assuming the broadcaster’s Ts&Cs allow it) and it involves using a piece of software called a VPN – better that than trying to get some dodgy stream from Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network makes it possible to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location – in this case, back in your home country. We’ve put all the major VPN’s to the test and our best rated option ExpressVPN is ideal for this, as it’s available on a whole host of Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets and more. In fact, so do all of our top three best VPN service picks:

1. Express VPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee)
This is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. Sign up to Sign up to ExpressVPN and get 3 months free on an annual plan as well as that 30-day trial.

2. NordVPN: SmartPlay tech makes NordVPN a great, affordable choice for streaming

3. IPVanish with security a focus, it supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go

And don’t forget that a VPN isn’t just handy for watching boxing… there’s loads you can do with them. From unblocking restricted sites and watching Netflix in other countries to adding an extra layer of security for online shopping and banking. 

How watch the Yarde fight in the UK

How to live stream Kovalev vs Yarde in the US

ESPN – and, in particular, its streaming service ESPN+ – will be showing tonight’s dust up in Chelyabinsk, with coverage of the fight expected to start at 3pm ET and midday PT.

Note that ESPN+ is also the home of UFC Fight Nights, so it’s becoming a natural choice for all things fighting.

After that, it costs $4.99 per month, which includes access on laptop, desktop, mobile app and TV streamer apps such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, PS4 and Xbox. And there’s no commitment either, you can discontinue the service at any time.

Click the link to head to sign up to ESPN+ or learn more about the service

Outside the US on fight night but still want to watch that ESPN+ coverage, then there’s the possibility of using a VPN to access it from abroad.

How to live stream Yarde vs Kovalev in Australia

At the time of writing, it doesn’t appear any Aussie broadcaster is set to show the Yarde vs Kovalev fight live. As an alternative you could try downloading a VPN service and then signing up for an option from another country. We’ll be sure to update this section if we hear anything differently.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige unveiled plans for three additional Marvel shows on Disney Plus, include Ms. Marvel — the company’s first Muslim character to headline her own comic book. 

Jesse Grant

Disney Plus already has four Marvel original scripted series and an animated show in the works. This Friday, Disney revealed three more. 

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, the puppet master behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe, said Disney Plus would also develop series based on characters She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight. He announced the shows at a Disney Plus presentation to show off trailers, screen first-look videos and parade talent at its fan convention, the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

In the comics, She-Hulk, or Jennifer Walters, is the cousin of Bruce Banner, whose superhuman powers transferred to her when she received a transfusion of Banner’s blood. 

The Ms. Marvel character was first incarnated by Carol Danvers, who later took up the identity of Captain Marvel, and the name was most recently passed on to Kamala Khan, a teen protege of Danvers who is Marvel’s first Muslim character to headline her own comic book. 

Feige announced plans for a She-Hulk original series. 

Jesse Grant

The character Moon Knight, or Marc Spector, is a former mercenary and CIA agent who has multiple personalities and is imbued with powers from an Egyptian god. 

These newly announced shows join a Marvel slate on Disney Plus that includes:

  • live-action series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan set to premiere in fall 2020.
  • a Loki series featuring Tom Hiddleston in spring 2021. 
  • WandaVision with Elizabeth Olsen in her role of Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany reprising The Vision in spring 2021.
  • a Hawkeye series in fall 2021, starring Jeremy Renner. 
  • Marvel’s first animated series, Marvel’s What If…, which explore alternate histories of pivotal moments in Marvel’s stories, had things turned out a different way. 

The studio’s Disney Plus shows are designed to be essential viewing for Marvel fans, with the characters and narratives of the Disney Plus live-action shows knitted together with the studio’s blockbuster theatrical movies. Avengers: Endgame, for example, contains a clue to how Loki returns from his death in the Phase 3 finale to appear in the Disney Plus original show. Scarlet Witch will appear in May 2021’s theatrical sequel Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness — but to understand how the character got there, you’ll need to watch Wandavision that comes out around the same time. 

Disney Plus, a $7-a-month service set to launch Nov. 12, is the highest-profile example of traditional Hollywood digging in to compete in streaming against likes of NetflixAmazon and — soon — Apple. With tech giants pouring money into their own TV shows and movies and luring consumers away from traditional pay TV, Disney is aiming to create a single streaming hub for all of its family-friendly content. 

Disney+ Showcase Presentation At D23 Expo Friday, August 23

Moon Knight rounded out the set of three new Marvel series Feige announced at D23.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday reiterated criticism of a French proposal to levy a tax aimed at big U.S. technology companies and threatened again to retaliate by taxing French wine.

Speaking to reporters at the White House before leaving for a Group of Seven summit in France, Trump said he is not a “big fan” of tech companies but “those are great American companies and frankly I don’t want France going out and taxing our companies.”

“And if they do that … we’ll be taxing their wine like they’ve never seen before,” he said.

As businesses have moved away from local storage in favor of cloud storage, protecting sensitive files and documents stored in the cloud has become a top priority for organizations.

However, according to Kaspersky’s “Sorting out digital clutter in business” report, two thirds (66%) of office workers can hardly remember what files they put in shared folders. This opens them up to security risks as malicious files could be stored right alongside company documents.

Without a dedicated layer of protection in place, cloud storage can become a transfer space for malware to be distributed across an entire organization, jeopardizing sensitive business data and overall workflow.

To help organizations better protect the files they store in the cloud, Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Office 365 has expanded its protection capabilities from Exchange Online to also include files stored on Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage service.

OneDrive protection

Kaspersky’s new anti-malware protection for OneDrive includes signature-based detection combined with heuristic, behavioral analysis and the latest threat intelligence to help prevent organizations from falling victim to known and zero-day threats.

Kaspersky Security can detect suspicious content stored on OneDrive and the service even has the ability to immediately delete an infected file before it spreads further.

Head of B2B Product Marketing at Kaspersky, Sergey Martsynkyan explained how additional cloud storage security can benefit workplace productivity, saying:

“Shared storage options, such as OneDrive, are popular and widely used business tools. But if employees can have instant and easy access to shared files, then so too can malware. Businesses need to understand this risk and ensure they are not compromising their productivity due to cyberthreats, by protecting their data and workflows. Our product provides such protection for Microsoft Office 365, allowing companies to use its collaborative features and focus on day-to-day operations, rather than worrying about the security of their data.”

Google pays homage to The Wizard of Oz’s 80th anniversary with a ruby slipper Easter egg. 


Google is paying tribute to the 80th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz by dropping a fun easter egg on its search page. Results for “The Wizard of Oz” pull up an image of Dorothy’s sparkling ruby slippers on the right side of the page, next to information about the classic film. Google added the Easter egg on Thursday. 

Clicking the slippers plays a sound bite of Dorothy (played by Judy Garland) saying “There’s no place like home” as the results page spins to become black and white. The Wizard of Oz begins as a black and white film when Dorothy’s in Kansas, before she finds herself in the colorful land of Oz. 

To return to the classic, colored results page, click on a spinning tornado where the slippers were, on the right side of the results page. You’ll hear dramatic music and Dorothy calling out to her Auntie Em, as she did when the tornado ripped through her town before she landed in Oz. 

“We love to celebrate major milestones in pop culture and create delightful surprises when people come to Search looking for information about iconic films,” a Google representative said. “For fans searching for information about the movie — including its legendary use of Technicolor — we created a delightful Easter Egg to pay homage to its creative achievements and the telling of this classic story.”

Earlier this year, theaters across the US brought The Wizard of Oz back to the big screen in celebration of the film’s 80th anniversary. The movie, based on L. Frank Baum’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, premiered on Aug. 25, 1939.

BOGOTA (Reuters) – An app that sends money in the form of tips from appreciative caffeine devotees around the world to coffee growers in Colombia could help farmers battered by dismal prices earn more income, the initiative’s founder said.

Many growers in the Andean country, the world’s top producer of washed arabica, are struggling to scratch a living even though high-quality Colombian beans remain sought after by coffee drinkers around the world.

Arabica coffee futures fell in May to their lowest level in more than 13 years, just 87.60 cents per lb, before recovering slightly to around 96 cents per lb. The low price has some farmers looking for alternative crops.

It even led Colombia’s growers federation to float the idea of untethering production from international prices set on the New York market.

But a former U.S. hedge fund manager, inspired by a stint working on a Colombian coffee farm to mount a non-profit effort to help growers, is hoping his tipping platform can help alleviate farmers’ burden and get consumers invested in the future of the crop.

The ‘propina’ paltform, which launches worldwide on Friday, comprises two different apps. One will be displayed on iPads in coffee shops and other locations and will send funds to workers at the farms the locations source from.

The second app, available on smartphones, will allow drinkers to directly tip their favorite cafe’s supplier or contribute to a general fund.

The contributions – managed by Colombia’s pension administrator – will ensure farmers and pickers earn more even if big buyers refuse to pay higher premiums, said platform founder Crawford Hawkins.

“Right now the system is completely warped in the favor of Nespresso and Illy and the large roasters,” said Hawkins. “This is probably the perfect environment for them to be doing business and yet they’re doing the bare minimum to say they care about farmers.”

Nespresso did not respond to a request for comment. However, it recently launched its own charitable effort it says will help more farmers swap coca, the base ingredient in cocaine, for coffee.

Illycaffe said in a statement to Reuters it guarantees producers who meet its quality standards a premium over the cost of production. “Producers are the most vital and endemically the least fairly compensated actors in the coffee supply chain,” it said.

The app will also allow users to set up recurring donations and get updates direct from farmers. Hawkins hopes to expand into gyms and co-working spaces, reaching between 500 and 1,000 locations in the apps’ first year.

The effort will begin in a dozen locations supplied by Madrid roasters SupraCafe, which stocks restaurants and hotels, but Hawkins said he is already in talks with rapidly expanding chains in the United States.

Many farmers have trouble finding people willing to do the arduous, all-weather work of hand-picking beans on steep mountainsides.

The pension payments may help growers attract labor, Hawkins said, and will motivate them to formalize their workforce.

Hawkins acknowledges asking drinkers to tip on top of the cost of their latte and gratuity for a barista may be a hard sell, but says significant funds could be raised if just a quarter of customers participate.

The propina iPads will be displayed alongside a looped short documentary about the price crisis – an effort to attract the attention of clients waiting for their orders.

“Guilt is sometimes a very good driver,” Hawkins said. “You love your specialty coffee, but it’s at risk and the farmer who produces it is at risk. You can do something about it.”

The app may soon offer consumers the option to round up their bill to the nearest dollar as a tip, Hawkins said, and could eventually expand into offering microloans to growers.

“There are enough specialty coffee shops out there to grow this in a big way.”

England and Australia are battling things out in the bright Yorkshire sunshine of in the 3rd Ashes Test in 2019. Having gained some momentum at Lord’s, the hosts are back on the back foot with Ashes glory now looking a long way away. If you’ve been completely bowled over (sorry!) by this cricket series, we’ll tell you the best ways to get an England vs Australia 3rd Test live stream.

England vs Australia Ashes 3rd Test – where and when

The 3rd Ashes Test takes place at Headingley in Leeds, ordinarily the home venue of Yorkshire CCC.

The action begins on Thursday, August 22 with each day’s play beginning at 11am BST local time, making it an 8pm AEST evening start for those looking to tune in Down Under.

The home side have named an unchanged team for the 3rd Test and will be hoping for more of the same from Jofra Archer following his explosive Test debut at Lord’s which saw him deliver as a constant menace to the Australian attack.

The key issue ahead of the action in Leeds was always going to be how the Aussies deal with the loss of Steve Smith. Marnus Labuschagne certainly proved a fitting replacement, but he gained very little support from his teammates. Cameron Bancroft’s poor form sees him replaced by Marcus Harris, while Peter Siddle makes way for James Pattinson as the Green Caps’ seamers are rotated again.

For England, they’ll be looking for the likes of Joe Root, Jason Roy and Jos Buttler to finally fire and avoid the kind of mid-order collapse that seems to have become the norm for this side in recent years.

Will England draw level or can the Aussies extend their series lead? You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our Ashes 3rd Test cricket live stream guide below.

Watch the 3rd England vs Australia Test away from your country

In the UK, Australia, India or the US and looking to find out how to watch the third Ashes Test? We’ve got all the details about the broadcaster with the rights to show the series in your region below. 

But if you’re away from home country – maybe abroad on business or on holiday – but still want to tune in to your domestic Ashes coverage then you’ll run in to issues. Because of broadcaster geo-blocking, you won’t be able to watch online from overaseas. By using a VPN however, you’ll be able to watch the game without having to resort to watching a potentially illegal feed from a dubious website.

We’ve tested all the major VPNs and we rate ExpressVPN as our pick of the bunch, thanks to its ease of use and strong security features. It’s also compatible with just about any streaming device out there, including Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation, as well as Android and Apple mobiles.

So to get that home broadcast and stay safer online, Express VPN (which also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee) is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN and get 3 months extra FREE when you sign up for an annual plan.

Once you’ve chosen and installed it, simply open the service’s corresponding app, hit ‘choose location’, select the appropriate country and you’ll be able to watch the broadcast as if you were back at home. It’s really easy to do.

How to watch the Ashes 3rd Test in the UK

Sky Sports  has the rights in the UK to show watch the entire Ashes Test series live this summer. You’ll be able to watch all the action as it happens on your TV, or you can live stream it to your phone or tablet using the Sky Go app. If you’re a Sky Q subscriber, you’ll be able to watch all the action from the Ashes in glorious Ultra HD.

Coverage starts on Sky Sports Cricket at 10am each morning of the Test.

If you don’t have Sky and don’t really want to sign up, you can get all the Sky Sports channels with a Now TV sports pass for £8.99 for a day, £14.99 a week or £33.99 for a whole month which will cover the last three Test matches as well as a bunch of Premier League matches.

if you’re not in the UK but want to catch up with any of the coverage on Sky or Now TV, then you’ll need a VPN to relocate your IP to the UK and get around the region restrictions. Just follow those instructions above.

Live stream the 2019 Ashes 3rd Test in Australia for FREE

Aussie cricket fans have it made – the entire 2019 Ashes series is available to watch free-to-air, with Channel Nine holding exclusive rights to live TV coverage.

The first ball of each day is set to played at around 8pm AEST in the evening – rain permitting, of course.

You can also live stream the Test on the Nine Network’s free 9Now web platform. The 9Now app is available to download for both iOS and Android devices from their respective app stores.

Outside Australia for the cricket? For those wanting to watch the Channel Nine coverage when you’re overseas, you’ll need to go down the VPN route as above. 

How to watch England vs Australia: live stream in India

If you’re in India, Sony Six is the channel you’ll need to find on your EPG if you’re looking to watch the third Test as well as the rest  of the 2019 Ashes series.

Those in the region hoping to stream on a computer or mobile device should head to Sony Liv.

Play is set to start at 3.30pm New Dehli time.

How to live stream England vs Australia in North America

Cricket broadcaster for the USA and Canada Willow TV has the live rights for the 2019 Ashes series. That also means that subscribers can watch on their mobiles devices, too. The channel comes as part of numerous satellite and cable packages such as Dish and Sling and costs $9.99 per month (so much cheaper than what you’d pay in the UK, for example).

To watch Willow TV when you’re out of America and geo-blocked, our VPN workaround as described above should really do the trick.

Play is set to start at the somewhat inconvenient time of 3am PT and 6am ET each day.

How to get an Ashes 3rd Test live stream in New Zealand

Sky has snapped up exclusive rights to show the Ashes contest in NZ. 

If you’re away from your TV, then you can download and watch on the Sky Go app. And if you’re overseas then the VPN method as mentioned above is the best way to go.

Play in the third Test is due to start each day at 10pm NZST from Thursday night onwards.

No sweets for Android 10.

Juan Garzon / CNET

Google on Thursday revealed that the next generation of its mobile operating system, previously called Android Q, will be ditching the dessert monikers that have been a part of its system updates for years. It will simply be known as Android 10.

“As a global operating system, it’s important that these names are clear and relatable for everyone in the world. So, this next release of Android will simply use the version number and be called Android 10,” Sameer Samat, vice president of product management for Android, wrote in a blog post. “We think this change helps make release names simpler and more intuitive for our global community.”

Google is similarly updating its Android logo as part of this new idea, opting for a “more modern, accessible look.” 


The new, updated Android logo found in Android 10. 


While no date was given for when the new software will be available, the post says the new logo will be pushed out in the “coming weeks with the final release of Android 10.” 

Google has typically named its new flavors of Android alphabetically and after something sugary. For example, the previous Android version was called Pie. Before that was Oreo, preceded by Nougat and Marshmallow. 

Google released the first preview version of the software in March and demoed more features at its annual I/O developer conference in May. 

One of Google’s key selling points for Android 10 is a new approach to keeping personal information private. The new privacy features come in the form of more granular location controls and a dedicated privacy section in the settings app.

Android 10 will also support foldable screens, faster app launches and full-on gesture navigation. Look for new Bubbles notifications and a slick Live Caption feature, too.

A number of companies have been working with Google throughout the beta process to ready their devices for the new update. In addition to Google’s line of Pixel phones, OnePlus (6 through 7 Pro), LG (G8) and Huawei (Mate 20 Pro) are among the many companies with devices already certified for the 10 beta program. 

Although a timeline from Google hasn’t been given, Nokia plans to update its Nokia 7.1, 8.1 and 9 PureView phones in the fourth quarter of 2019. The company is planning to update an additional 14 phones to Android 10 between the fourth quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020.

(Reuters) – Inc (CRM.N) forecast third-quarter and full-year revenue above Wall Street estimates on Thursday, as it benefits from acquisitions and more companies opting for its cloud-based services, sending its shares up 7% in extended trading.

The company said it expects revenue of $4.44 billion to $4.45 billion for the current quarter, topping analysts’ expectations of $4.25 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Salesforce has spent billions of dollars on acquisitions in the last few years, adding companies such as Tableau and MuleSoft, protecting its market share as it battles Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) and Oracle Corp (ORCL.N).

The San Francisco-based company said on Thursday it expects the Tableau acquisition, its biggest ever, to add value in the range of $550 million and $600 million for the year.

Tableau, which provides AI-enabled data analytics to companies like Netflix (NFLX.O) and Verizon (VZ.N), was acquired on Aug. 1 for $15.3 billion.

The early close of Tableau helped Salesforce grow, according to Steve Koenig from Wedbush Securities. He also said the company is also growing on an organic basis.

The company raised its 2020 revenue forecast in the range of $16.75 billion to $16.90 billion, beating analysts’ estimates of $16.64 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. It previously forecast a range of $16.10 billion to $16.25 billion.

Total revenue surged 22% to $4 billion in the second quarter ended July 31, compared with analysts’ estimates of $3.95 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Revenue from Sales Cloud, its flagship product for customer relationship management, rose 12.5% to $1.13 billion, accounting for about a third of its revenue.

Net income fell to $91 million, or 11 cents per share, from $299 million, or 39 cents per share, a year earlier.

Excluding items, it earned 66 cents per share, above analysts’ expectations of 47 cents.
