    Netflix is being sued by investors who claim the streaming giant misled them about subscriber growth in the six months before it reported a loss of 200,000 subscribers, leading to a plunge in stock price.  The lawsuit filed in San Francisco federal court on Tuesday alleges Netflix violated U.S. securities laws by making 'materially false and/or misleading statements' and because it 'failed to disclose material adverse facts about the company's business, operations and prospects.' It seeks damages for declines in Netflix's share price this year after the company missed its subscriber growth estimates.  Netflix shares dropped 20 percent in January after it disclosed weak subscriber growth and then shares plunged more than 35 percent on April 20 to close at $226.19 after it said it lost 200,000 subscribers in its first quarter.  The lawsuit was filed just days after it was reported by Deadline that Netflix had dropped Meghan Markle's animated series as part of a wave of cutbacks prompted by the streaming service's drop in subscribers.  Filed by a Texas-based investment trust, the lawsuit accused Los Gatos, California-based Netflix...

    Hunter Biden’s partying days appear to be in the rearview mirror as he lives a quiet homebody-style life, rarely venturing out of his $6 million Malibu home while being guarded 24/7 by the Secret Service. “He never goes anywhere other than an art studio,” a source with direct knowledge of the situation told the Washington Examiner. “You won’t ever see Hunter Biden in a grocery store buying bologna and bread for a sandwich.” But on the off chance that Biden does want to venture out, he doesn’t drive himself but rather gets into a Secret Service car. “He is like the president. He never goes anywhere without a big team,” the source said. Biden is holed up with his wife and baby in an oceanview mansion that is part of a neighborhood once owned by William Randolph Hearst. He left the beach town of Venice last summer after receiving intense media attention there and headed for the seclusion of the celebrity enclave Malibu.

    The Queen has pulled out of the annual Maundy Day church service, Buckingham Palace has announced.  In a first for her reign, the monarch, 95, will instead be represented by Prince Charles at the event, due to be held on April 14.  The future King of England will be joined by his wife and soon-to-be Queen's consort Camilla.  The service has not been held for the past two years due to the Covid pandemic.    It comes after the Queen, who suffers from widely-publicised mobility issues, pulled out of the Commonwealth Service last month amid concerns over her health.    Her decision not to attend the service was understood to be related to concerns over her comfort getting to and from Westminster, ITV Royal Editor Chris Ship reported. The head of state, who now uses walking stick and a wheelchair, has been conducting some of her business over zoom from Windsor Castle in recent months.      Next week's event is a traditional Church of England ceremony held on Maundy Thursday, the day before Good Friday, and celebrates everyday citizens who have contributed to their...

    Vladimir Putin's risk of being deposed by a Russian security-service led coup is growing every week, a whistleblower has claimed. Chaos and discontent over Russia's botched invasion of Ukraine has grown within the ranks of Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), and Putin's position at the head of the Kremlin is growing increasingly unstable, the source said. When Russia unleashed its invasion on February 24, a swift toppling of Ukraine's democratically elected government seemed likely. But with Wednesday marking four full weeks of fighting, Russia is bogged down in a grinding military campaign. Speaking to The Times, Vladimir Osechkin - a man wanted for his work exposing abuse in Russia's prisons - has shared updates from a source within the FSB that suggests anger towards Putin is mounting. The Russian president is said to blame the FSB for the failure to quickly take control of the country. FSB officers meanwhile are becoming disillusioned with increasingly oppressive sanctions imposed by the West on Russia, and are growing frustrated. Citing his source, Osechkin told the newspaper that this has meant the country's high-flying secret service agents...

PayPal released a statement to help consumers understand their responsibility. "PayPal and Venmo offer a way for customers to tag their peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions as either personal/friends and family or goods and services by choosing the appropriate category for each transaction," the payment giant said.

    A Kansas man has been charged with making threats against President Joe Biden after he was tracked down by Secret Service agents at a Cracker Barrel in Maryland prior to making a series of threatening phone calls and disturbing social media posts. Construction contractor Scott Merryman told the agents who intercepted him on Wednesday that he was on a mission from God, whom he claimed told him 'to lop off the head of the serpent in the heart of the nation,' according to a criminal complaint first obtained by the Daily Beast.  Merryman was driving from Independence, Kansas, en route to Washington, D.C., where he was allegedly headed to talk to Biden and claimed he had to deliver a message to him.  He also made a series of Facebook posts after he began interacting with Secret Service agents, deeming Biden the 'antichrist' and calling one of the Secret Service agents 'Lucifer.'

    CUPERTINO (CNN) — Just a day after Spotify agreed to remove Neil Young’s music from its service, Apple Music trolled its streaming rival by giving the musician some rock star treatment. In a tweet sent late Thursday, and later pinned to the top of the official Apple Music Twitter account, Apple called its platform “the home of Neil Young.” Some Apple Music users also reported seeing Young’s albums and playlists promoted front and center in the Apple Music “browse” section with the banner “We Love Neil.” The home of Neil Young.

    Spotify will remove Neil Young's music after he demanded that it be removed from the streaming service in a blazing row over vaccine misinformation spread by podcaster Joe Rogan.   A representative for Spotify confirmed to Variety that the music is expected to be removed later today.  'We want all the world's music and audio content to be available to Spotify users. With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators,' a representative told Variety.  'We have detailed content policies in place and we've removed over 20,000 podcast episodes related to COVID since the start of the pandemic.

    A Boston woman is warning people to stay away from the Simone Biles-backed mental health service Cerebral, alleging that the company is a 'scam' that advertises therapy options which it doesn't actually offer — and then charges users for services it doesn't provide.  Katie Mac, 27, was on the hunt for a therapist when she signed up for Cerebral last year, but within 24 hours, she was demanding her money back. Mac said she was required to enter her credit card information before she even chose a therapist, and then only two therapists — neither of which met her needs — were offered as options. When she contacted customer service for a refund, claiming the company didn't provide what she paid for, she says they offered her a meager 30 per cent back even though she never had a single therapy session. Mac has since taken to TikTok to caution others and insist that Olympic gold medalist Biles - who has served as the app's Chief Impact Officer since October 2021 - should stop promoting the company.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki blamed a 'massive surge' in Omicron cases for the shortage of COVID tests available as the administration announced on Monday that health insurers will be required to pay for at-home kits starting January 15. The administration is rushing to meet its promise to make 500 million at-home testing kits available for free for Americans. Psaki, at her press briefing, expressed confidence they would meet that goal and the U.S. Postal Service would be able to make the deliveries.  'We expect to have all contracts awarded over the next two weeks, and then Americans will begin being able to order these tests online later this month,' she said.  She pushed back against criticism of the long testing lines that popped up around the country as Americans sought to get tested around the holiday season.  'There has been a massive surge in cases as you know,' Psaki said.

Officials aim to begin sending out the test kits by mid-January.  A number of test manufacturers and distributors have submitted proposals to the government, and on Thursday night the Biden administration awarded its first contract for the tests.  Meanwhile, the Postal Service is reportedly negotiating with its four labor unions to extend their additional seasonal workforce, comprising roughly 40,000 workers who are brought in to help the agency manage the influx of holiday packages, according to the Washington Post.  The Biden administration is reportedly finalizing the details of its plan with the U.S. Postal Service to deliver 500 million at-home Covid tests for free to Americans who request them New Yorkers stand in line to take a Covid-19 test in Times Square on Jan. 3  Boynton Beach residents...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 98% of the active duty Army had gotten at least one dose of the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine as of this week’s deadline for the shots, but more than 3,800 soldiers flatly refused and could start being removed from the military next month, officials said Thursday. The U.S. military’s largest service, however, reported the lowest number of service members seeking a religious exemption — a bit more than 1,700 soldiers — compared with the other three smaller services. In comparison, there are more than 4,700 in the Air Force, 3,000 in the Marine Corps and 2,700 in the Navy who are requesting religious exemptions, according to data released by the services in the past week. None has yet been approved. The Pentagon announced earlier this year that the vaccine was mandatory for all service members, including the National Guard and Reserve. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has said repeatedly that getting the vaccine is critical to maintaining a heathy, ready force that can be prepared to defend the nation. The Pentagon is also weighing making the COVID-19 vaccine...
