Northern California casino reopens from 3-week closure due to cyberattack

Cache Creek Casino Resort in Northern California has reopened after a cyberattack forced the property to close for more than three weeks.

The 24-hour tribal casino, located along Highway 16 in Brooks about an hour outside of Sacramento, was back in business as of Monday afternoon.

“Our incredible teams and partners have completed the necessary work to return us to normal business operations,” the casino wrote in a social media post.

Cache Creek had been closed since the evening of Sept. 20 due to what it initially referred to generically as a “systems infrastructure failure,” and for nearly a week and a half, the casino provided limited updates and gave no estimated time frame for reopening.

On Sept. 30, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation confirmed that the cause of the systems failure was “an external attack on (their) computer network,” as first reported by The Sacramento Bee and announced

SBS Language | Australia to refund visa application charge for temporary visa holders affected by COVID-19 border closure

Temporary skilled workers and visitor visa holders will now be eligible to have the visa application charge (VAC) for a subsequent visa application waived, to allow them to return to Australia once travel restrictions are lifted.

Revealing details about the measure that was announced as part of the permanent residency migration shakeup in the Federal Budget last week, Acting Immigration Minister Alan Tudge today said the aim is to ensure that Australia remains an attractive destination for tourists and temporary visa holders who often fill critical skills shortages where locals can’t fill vacancies.


Highlights:

  • Australia to refund visa application charge for temporary visa holders affected by COVID-19 border closure
  • Tourists, working holidaymakers, seasonal & pacific workers, prospective partners and temporary skilled workers will be eligible
  • Aim is to ensure Australia remains an attractive destination for temporary visa holders when borders reopen

Junior Business Minister calls for three-week closure of off-licences

JUNIOR Business Minister Robert Troy has told a private Fianna Fáil meeting that off-licences should be closed for three weeks amid concerns over the spread of Covid-19.

His proposal goes further than Government plans to significantly reduced their opening hours in a bid to clamp down on house parties and large social gatherings.

The issue was discussed at Fianna Fáil’s parliamentary party meeting this evening.

Sources said that Longford-Westmeath TD Mr Troy said off-licences should be closed outright for three weeks.

Dara Calleary did not go as far but said there needs to be a curtailment of discounting and special offers on alcohol in supermarkets.

The Mayo TD is said to have pointed out that it’s hard for small businesses to close while supermarkets engage in the practice.

Creditors and landlords at Pizza Hut, are due to close the vote on the chain’s company voluntary arrangement (CVA) restructuring plan on Monday.

The UK arm of the pizza chain will be the latest franchise to attempt to push through restaurant closures, with the deal also securing the company major rent cuts on its remaining sites.

If passed, the deal will result in the permanent closure of 29 of Pizza Hut UK’s 244 restaurants, putting around 450 jobs at risk, adding the chain to a long list of UK restaurant casualties.

Earlier this month, the Pizza Huts Restaurant Group, which runs the dine-in Pizza Hut franchise in the UK said COVID-19 had caused “significant disruption.”

Sales are not expected to “fully bounce back” until

Lockdown fury in Marseille as government orders sudden closure WITHOUT consulting local authorities

Marseille has been left ‘astonished’ after it was plunged into a second lockdown amid a sharp rise in coronavirus cases across France.

The strict new rules have angered local officials who said they had not been consulted as authorities put the country’s second city on maximum alert.

The move, which was announced by health minister Olivier Véran on Wednesday, will see all restaurants, bars and gyms in Marseille close from Saturday for at least two weeks.

Crowds of local business owners took to the streets on Friday to stage a protest against the new measures. 

It comes after France set a daily record with more than 16,000 new Covid-19 cases in 24 hours amid warnings that Britain could follow in its footsteps.

The Bay Area’s small business closure crisis is already here

When the Triptych Strength Training gym opened in San Francisco, it was a chance for Tarquin Thornton-Close to finally build the kind of workout space he had long envisioned — lots of room, limited numbers of people at a time, and plenty of strength-training gear.

After all, working out is more than just a physical activity; it can be a therapeutic experience, said Thornton-Close, who started as a personal trainer at high-end gyms on the East Coast before moving to a 24 Hour Fitness in the Bay Area, eventually becoming an independent personal trainer and then opening his own gym in September 2016.

“It’s not just pumping iron,” he said. “It’s exercising their demons, pun intended.”

But now, it’s all gone. Unable to hang on any longer after a nearly six-month coronavirus shutdown, Thornton-Close closed the gym in August. His has become one of the roughly 8,300 businesses that have

Despite a growing number of vacancies, tenants on the ground said the MTA hasn’t provided the relief necessary for the small businesses to survive.

The halls of Grand Central terminal are so quiet these days you can roll a bowling ball and not hit anyone.

That’s how Oren Bloostein, the founder of a coffee shop that’s been located in the landmark transit hub since 1999, described the dearth of business since Covid-19 ravaged New York City’s economy. After more than two decades serving coffee and scones to commuters rushing to the office, the store closed shop for good in July because it was unable to pay its rent.

“It feels horrible — we wanted to be there, we still want to be there,” said Bloostein, who relinquished ownership in 2018
