Those charged with the most severe offenses — like undermining the Chinese government — face a maximum penalty of life in prison. On Monday, several major tech companies including Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn,...

While overall retail sales are down right now (there’s been a 21.6% decline from April 2019 to April 2020), online sales are bucking the trend. The NRF reports a 21.2% rise in online and other non-store sales over the same time period.
