Google released version 79 of its Chrome web browser last week, but a bug is causing serious problems because it's seemingly wiping the data some Android apps use. As Android Police reports, the bug impacts apps that rely on Android's WebView, which allows web content to be accessed and displayed from within an app. In order for this to work, some data is stored locally, but with Chrome 79 the location of the storage was changed. This required local data to be migrated to the new location, and that's where the failure lies. The data migration didn't happen properly, so apps are left unable to function properly. The good news is the data isn't being deleted as it still exists in the old location. Google now needs to figure out the best way to movie it, and to do so quickly, but until a fix is in place the rollout of Chrome 79 has been paused.

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we finish up the final newsletter of this racing year. And, I didn’t miss a one.Well, this does it for this year, and by year I mean racing year. Sure, we’ll be back on Dec. 26 of this year but I always look at that like next racing year. It has no doubt been the most challenging of my four years covering this sport. I don’t see things changing the early part of next year. My hope is to be writing about how racing has completely changed the safety paradigm for next year.So, with that, I wish all of our readers the best holiday season, even those of you who think I am an idiot.Stewards’ rulings Advertisement We’ve got the first set of stewards’ minutes from Los Alamitos although none of them are really from Los Alamitos.

Until a few years ago, Dublin’s working-class neighbourhood of Stoneybatter and its environs, just north of the river Liffey, were run-down and little talked about. The O’Devaney Gardens high-rise flats – now eerily deserted amid fenced-off fields and wasteland – were particularly notorious. Following a surge of ambivalently received gentrification, Stoneybatter has become synonymous with Dublin hipsterism. Mountain beards and craft beers are de rigueur, and you needn’t look hard to find “hot yoga” venues, art spaces and community squats. Alongside the greasy spoons and chippers, there are newer, more self-conscious cafes of the produce-our-own-newsletter variety. Through a double shot of sudden money and cultural ferment, the area has become something of a little Williamsburg by the Liffey. Dublin rents have become appallingly high of late: I felt lucky to move into a small but pleasant semi in Stoneybatter a year and a half ago at a … [Read more...] about Discover Dublin’s Stoneybatter, a district on the rise
