Successful Child Influencers Told To Follow Same Rules As Other French Child Stars

A new French law has been passed to protect young influencers operating on YouTube and other social media platforms—a rapidly developing avenue of revenue for many children.

It has become an increasing problem that under 16s are working very long hours online on platforms such as YouTube, without regulation.

The French government unanimously voted to bring in new laws governing how long these children work and what happens to their money. They will now have the same protection as other under 16s who work long hours, as reported by the BBC, such as child actors or singers.

The politician behind the bill, Bruno Studler, told Le Monde that it would make France a pioneer in the rights of child social media stars.

The bill only applies to influencers who earn revenue and

Maricopa County offering hotels for COVID-19 patients to isolate | Coronavirus in Arizona

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Maricopa County has hotel rooms available for residents who don’t have a place to isolate after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Maricopa County communications director Fields Moseley said since the isolation hotel was made available in July, only 17 people have taken advantage of the resource.

“As soon as we know they need the help we can go ahead and place them in that hotel within a matter of minutes. It’s a short turnaround time once we know they are asking for help or being referred to us for help,” said Moseley.

There’s an online form people can fill out to request a room. They can also be referred by a local organization, such as the Crisis Response Network. Cities, towns and Native American tribes can also make referrals.

To be eligible, county residents must be living in a home where they’re not able to isolate in

The Game of the Year contender you never saw coming

As we enter the final weeks of 2020, it’s fair to say it’s been a barnstormer of a year for games.

Sure, there’s the big AAA franchises everyone expected to make a big splash — Final Fantasy VII Remake, The Last of Us Part II, and Doom Eternal. But some of the year’s biggest stories have come from games that emerged seemingly out of nowhere, like Fall Guys, Among Us, and Hades. Genshin Impact, the expansive open-world adventure on PS4, PC, and mobile from Chinese developer miHoYo, isn’t quite a plucky newcomer with a reported budget of $100 million, but it is astonishingly good.

Also, it’s free to play. That’s probably why the game was downloaded more than 17 million times in just four days. Much of Genshin Impact’s success comes from having a gacha (random chance draws for real-world money) system

Wells Fargo: These 3 “Strong Buy” Stocks Have Over 70% Upside Potential

Markets are on a roller coaster lately, up one day and down the next, as Wall Street’s pros and investors alike try to make sense of the constantly shifting news cycle. To wit: In the first week of October, we’ve seen a pretty good September jobs report, President Trump spend three days at Walter Reed Hospital with a case of COVID-19, and on his discharge the President withdrew from negotiations with House Democrats on a new COVID economic stimulus package. It’s enough to make your head spin.It’s also enough to send the S&P up 60 points one day and down 60 points the next day. Investors are nervous; no one wants to see another economic tailspin, no one wants to see the Administration handicapped by coronavirus, and whether there will be a stimulus package or not, of

Xbox marks the spot: New game helps put Southeast Alaska arts and culture on the map

The request was so unusual that Jeff Skaflestad was nearly certain it was a misunderstanding.

Would Skaflestad, a Hoonah-based, Norwegian-Tlingit artist, be interested in creating artwork to be used in a video game?

“When they first asked me the question, I had to make sure they knew I don’t do Western-style art,” Skaflestad said in a phone interview. “I didn’t understand how formline art could appear in video games. I thought, in the first moment, ‘I think they got the wrong guy here.’”

However, incorporating art and culture not often seen in video games into the narrative adventure game “Tell Me Why” is exactly why Skaflestad; his partner, Lisa Andersson; Hoonah-based artist Gordon Greenwald; and Huna Heritage Foundation Executive Director Amelia Wilson among others were tapped to contribute to and consult on the project.

“Tell Me Why” is an episodic video game published by Xbox Game Studios and developed by

The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Getting A 4K UHD Remaster This Winter

2020 has thus far been a great year for The Lord of the Rings fans. After the cast reunited online a couple of months ago, Warner Bros. has now announced that a new 4K UHD pack of the LOTR and Hobbit trilogies will be releasing in December for the first time.

The surprise reveal came from Sean Astin, the actor behind everyone’s favorite gardener and companion, Samwise Gamgee. “Now, because it’s in 4K UHD you know it’s going to be the most incredible home viewing experience possible,” he revealed in the announcement video.
