Russia fines Google for not complying with search results law - TASSTue, 11 Dec 2018 05:56 | Reuters
Russia fined Google 500,000 roubles ($7,530) on Tuesday for failing to comply with a legal requirement to remove certain entries from its search results, Russia's communications watchdog was quoted as saying by TASS news agency. Russia said last month that it had opened a civil case against Google as it had not joined a state registry that lists banned websites that Moscow believes contain illegal information and was therefore not compliant with the law. Alexander Zharov, head of watchdog Roscomnadzor, said Russia could open a new case against Google if it did not fall in line with the law, TASS reported.

Hundreds of French anti-terror police are hunting for a fugitive gunman who attacked Christmas shoppers at a market in the eastern city of Strasbourg while shouting "Allahu akbar" (God is greatest), officials said Wednesday. The attack in the heart of the medieval city as the annual Christmas market was closing on Tuesday night left two dead, 13 injured and crowds of traumatised witnesses. The suspect, a 29-year-old Strasbourg native identified as Cherif Chekatt, opened fire with a handgun and stabbed passers-by during his rampage, France's anti-terror prosecutor Remy Heitz said Wednesday.

The pound hit the lowest since April 2017 as the market judged that the risk of no-deal Brexit has increased.
Aries Horoscope for Wednesday, December 12, 2018
You`ve been progressing at a frantic pace these last couple of days, but now you are beginning to see that moving at the speed of light has its drawbacks. As the Stars change their position, yesterday`s intense drive is suddenly replaced by the desire to protect yourself. You yearn to have a place to call your own, but personal space, either physical or psychic, is at a premium. For most of the day, your roots are exposed, and your emotions are naked. Your own good works come back to save you.
Variety isn`t always the spice of life. Take some time to move away from the unusual for a change. As the situation changes, it becomes okay to embrace a familiar method or style. The latest fashion will always have its charms, but people love you best for the person that you`ve always been. Stop working for a little while so that you can beautify your home. You feel most comfortable when you are surrounded by luxury and comfort.
You feel as if you have a lot more to learn before you can move on to the next level of the game. As the circumstances around you change, the lesson continues -- and it`s much more about doing some soul-searching than being self-serving. Try to remember that the person who gets in your face may be looking for answers, not for a fight. Keep a list of things that you want to do but can`t yet.
Logic and common sense have no place in your world right now. In the dance of life, it`s important for you to lead with your heart. As the Stars change their configuration, your outgoing energy draws adoring fans into your wake. Universal truth shines at you from unexpected places. The courteous phrase `be my guest` carries special weight. Including everyone in on the fun assures you a place at the front of the line for the next big event.
No matter how hard you try to push them out of your life, some things just won`t go away. The thing that you hoped most to forget is back in your face again. You have no other choice at the moment -- you must accept and integrate the person who refuses to go away. The current circumstances are quick to remind you that, until now, you`ve had it your way for a long time. It`s important for you to remember that reaching a compromise isn`t the same thing as giving up.
You shouldn`t try to force the issue. As the day progresses, you will come to realize that love and patience are the best teachers. Doing something halfheartedly won`t fool anyone into thinking that you care. Instead of complaining about the work, think of it this way: The more time you put into a favorite project, the greater the probability that it will turn into something excellent. Familiar advice seems to make sense in a new way each and every time.
If you had planned on being able to work on personal projects for most of the day, you had better think again. As the situation rapidly evolves, you are given multiple tasks from someone in a position higher than you. You`re the designated scribe, the impartial observer and the storehouse of all relevant data. All this information has powerful uses if you can manage to stay above the fray. Beware of those who have negative opinions about what you`re doing.
As the Stars smile your way, you stand head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. You`re smart as a whip, and just about as hard to handle. Getting the crowd on your side may not be easy, but it`s definitely possible. You have a few more days to bond with the person who suddenly seems more worthy of your time than they did a day ago. A reversed judgment starts off a flutter of shifting perspectives.
You are in the mood to stir up some trouble, but the Universe isn`t giving you the go-ahead signal quite yet. As things stand right now, action has to be for some more productive purpose than provoking a reaction. Why don`t you work on using those considerable talents to make this world a better, prettier place? It`s time to stop trying to keep track of who is winning. After a certain point, no one cares whose score is the highest anyway.
The big picture could use some extra attention from you. Do whatever you can to reduce the frivolous details so that they don`t keep confusing you. Look at it from every angle to make sure things are even. Even at the outer edge of your limits, you still want to perform effectively. In the event of failure, however, remember that this isn`t intended as a personal insult. When the situation stands in this manner, business is strictly business.
You can`t help but wonder why everyone else is acting as if nothing is wrong. You`ve seen it all before, and it`s been done much better. Maybe you`re tired or sad, but you can`t find any point in continuing a meaningless charade. It`s important for you to try to get in touch with your feelings if you want to remember why you`re going through these motions. You might be able to find it within yourself to try just a little bit harder.
Who said navigating the extremes had to be a difficult task? As the Moon makes its way into a new Sign, you`re lost in a process too dense and magical to explain. You switch easily from playing in the mud to soaring above the clouds, and vice versa. Professional creatives can`t believe that they`re getting paid for doing what they do. In fact, no matter what profession you have chosen to participate in, you seem to be content with the way things are going.
