Transnational IT giants Google, Twitter and Meta (formerly Facebook) received a total of eight new administrative protocols in Russia for failing to remove banned content from their platforms, a Moscow court said Tuesday.
“Two protocols against Google have been registered under part 4 of Article 13.41 of the Administrative Code (failure to remove links) and one protocol under part 2 of the same article (non-removal of prohibited content),” the court said. .
Russian internet watchdog Roskomnadzor has also filed two protocols against Twitter for failing to remove banned content and links leading to such content, and another three for Meta on the same grounds.
Since September, Google has been fined a total of 39 million rubles ($520.00) for failing to remove content banned in Russia, including inciting extremism, and for refusing to store the personal data of Russian citizens in Russia. to beat.
The court will hear the new complaints against Google on December 7, against Twitter and Meta on December 16.
In March, the Russian watchdog announced its plans to impose fines on several social media platforms, including Facebook, for failing to remove illegal content after receiving an official report. For repeated violations, the fines amount to one-tenth of a company’s total annual income.
On Monday, Roskomnadzor also published a list of 13 foreign internet companies that are required to open representations in the country by January 1. The list includes Google, Apple, Meta Platforms, Twitter, TikTok, Telegram, Zoom, Viber, Spotify, Likeme Pte. Ltd. (Like), Discord, Pinterest and Twitch.
Edmonton business group calls for help for struggling Whyte Avenue retailers, restaurants
At The Wish List Gifts store in Edmonton’s historic Old Strathcona neighborhood, Gayle Martin is surrounded by new mugs, kitschy art, and other odd trinkets. But one thing is missing: customers.
Ms Martin’s business has always relied heavily on foot traffic, but the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed many customers to stay at home for most of the past 20 months and prevented them from visiting the area.
“We lost our Christmas because they closed the restaurants and we rely a lot on restaurant traffic here in the evenings,” said Ms Martin.
Her company has received a rent reduction from the federal government and tax refunds from the City of Edmonton, allowing her to keep its doors open. But even with most of the public health restrictions now lifted in Alberta, things remain sluggish.
Ms Martin’s struggle is not unique as the pandemic kept people at home and shifted more of their groceries and food to online stores and delivery services, drying up foot traffic along the normally busy Whyte Avenue in Old Strathcona. This left many local businesses unprepared for the sudden change, forcing 39 of them to either close their doors or relocate in 2020, according to the Old Strathcona Business Association, or OSBA.
It’s a problem the business association and municipal government are trying to solve as retailers and hospitality businesses recover, in part by enticing more local businesses to fill empty storefronts and improve critical infrastructure in Old Strathcona.
“Now more than ever, we need to focus on shopping locally and keeping the money in the local economy,” said Michael Janz, the city councilor whose ward includes Old Strathcona.
The OSBA recently launched a marketing campaign to attract new local and independent businesses to the area. In its recruiting package, it cites research data showing that 57 percent of city residents identified the area as their most favorite shopping area.
“We haven’t done this before, so this is a whole new kind of space for us on our initiative side,” said Cherie Klassen, OSBA executive director.
Ms Klassen said the association’s surveys showed that local respondents wanted more local and independent businesses in the area. The OSBA explains that focusing on those types of businesses, rather than chains, will keep more money in the local community.
The campaign is part of the association’s drive to look beyond the pandemic and toward a longer-term recovery. The group launched an economic recovery task force last year to help its members overcome the pandemic with help from municipal grants. It conducted surveys to assess the economic impact of the pandemic on the area and to develop a recovery strategy. It was transformed into a corporate recruiting committee in 2021 to drive the new strategy forward.
Last year, the OSBA and the city teamed up to offer business fee waivers, free patio permits, consultations, and online support and grants.
While the OSBA recorded 39 closed businesses in 2020, it also counted the same number of new businesses opened, leaving vacancy levels flat. During 2020 to October 2021, the OSBA recorded a total of 73 new businesses opening in the area while 62 were either closed or relocated, resulting in a positive profit of 11 new businesses.
Mr Janz, the councilor, said he is working on a series of proposals to improve the area and address remaining challenges. One of the biggest concerns he’s heard about is the lack of walkable spaces in the area. One of his proposals is to extend the sidewalk of the avenue and create more walkways that are both safe and accessible to all.
“If you go there during the certain peak times, they go [be] packed,” he said. “It would be nice if we could spread that.”
Jeff Nachtigall, co-owner of Sugared and Spiced Baked Goods Inc., said that while his store is still making money, it is struggling to pay off debt — which has been made more difficult by the pandemic.
“We can still go ahead, but we are unable to pay off the debt we took on to build the store,” he said.
He also wants the recently elected city council to be open to new and creative ideas that will enhance the city’s new Back Street project, which aims to repurpose alleyways for businesses and create vibrant spaces for people to gather. Mr Nachtigall said the alleyways program will create more walkable spaces for pedestrians.
“With our new council, I’m pretty optimistic because we’ve picked some good councilors who I think see things a certain way, finally,” he said.

Capen Limited boss Simon Rydings is serving jail term for misusing lottery proceeds
Lottery operator Capen Limited has jailed its Chief Exec for robbing a £285,000 ($380,227) charity, the Gambling Commission (GC) has confirmed.
Capen’s 50-year-old CEO, Simon Rydings, was sentenced to three months in prison for failing to pass on the proceeds of a lottery run by his company on behalf of Sheffield Hospitals Charity. In addition, he must pay £1,000 in damages within 18 months of leaving prison.
In a case prosecuted by the Gambling Commission and heard by the Birmingham Magistrates’ Court, Rydings admitted to misusing lottery proceeds between January 1, 2018 and March 31, 2020. However, he told the court that he was unable to repay the full £285,000 as he had already spent the money on other costs associated with running the business.
“Lotteries in this country can only be run for charities – charities and other non-commercial organizations that run lotteries rely heavily on the revenue they receive from lotteries to support the important work they do,” said GC director Helen Venn.
“Simon Rydings failed completely as CEO of a Gambling Commission licensed (ELM) company and is now paying the price.
“Consumers in this country deserve to know that when they participate in a lottery, they are helping support their chosen cause – and we will not hesitate to take action against individuals who misuse money the way Rydings did.”
Capen’s operating license was suspended in December 2020 after the GC launched an assessment of its operations. At the time, the Commission invoked section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005 out of concern that activities may have been carried out in violation of the law.
