By Brian X. Chen, The New York Times Company If we had a choice, would any of us want to be tracked online for the sake of seeing more relevant digital ads? We are about to find out. On Monday, Apple released iOS 14.5, one of its most anticipated software updates for iPhones and iPads in years. It includes App Tracking Transparency, a new privacy tool that could give us more control over how our data is shared. Here’s how it works: When an app wants to follow our activities to share information with third parties such as advertisers, a window will appear on our Apple device to ask for our permission to do so. If we say no, the app must stop monitoring and sharing our data. A pop-up window may sound like a minor design tweak, but it has thrown the online advertising industry into upheaval. Most notably, Facebook has gone on the warpath. Last year, the social network created a website and took out full-page ads in newspapers denouncing Apple’s privacy feature as harmful … [Read more...] about To be tracked or not?

Wildlife and environmental protection agencies say they are investigating the scope of damage following a semitanker crash outside Lyons on Tuesday that spilled 500 to 1,000 gallons of fuel near the North St. Vrain Creek. Dana Barnicoat, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 8 public information officer, said the EPA is providing assistance in the cleanup process. The amount of fuel that entered the North St. Vrain — which is about 20 feet from the spill site — remains under investigation, Barnicoat said. Officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife are helping assess the aftermath of the spill on aquatic species and wildlife. While it isn’t yet known how many fish have died, Barnicoat said “significant fish kill” was reported as far as three to four miles downstream of the spill. Jason Clay, a Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesperson, said the types of fish that had been found dead as of Wednesday were brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout. None of those fish species … [Read more...] about Tanker spill near Lyons killed “an incredible amount of fish” in North St. Vrain Creek, mayor says

Colorado officials declared they will toughen their oversight of oil and gas drilling and fracking sites following the release Thursday of a multiyear scientific study that found industry operations may expose residents to unhealthy levels of benzene and other chemicals. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment study concluded that people living within 2,000 feet of fracking sites could face an elevated risk of short-term health impacts — such as nosebleeds, headaches, breathing trouble and dizziness — in worst-case scenarios. While benzene has been linked to cancer, state officials said the study, based on measuring of emissions and computer modeling, did not find a basis for predicting long-term health harm. State regulators said they will immediately begin reviewing more strictly all industry applications to drill new wells within 2,000 feet of homes and start measuring air emissions around industry sites. “Before this,” the Colorado Oil and Gas … [Read more...] about Colorado to tighten oversight of oil and gas sites near homes in wake of study finding possible short-term health effects
