Agenda posted June 11, 2024

Companies around the world are dealing with a massive I-T outage. Airlines, hospitals, banks, shops and more were hit overnight. The outage was caused by a Windows update overnight by Cybersecurity company CrowdStrike. Microsoft says its working with companies to get them back online.       President Biden's campaign chair insists he's still committed to running in the 2024 presidential race. Jen O'Malley Dillon pushed back against reports the President was considering exiting the race. She acknowledged the campaign's recent struggles, but said one of their top priorities moving forward is going to be assuring the American people Biden is fit to serve another term.       Former President Trump will hold his first joint campaign rally with Vice Presidential candidate JD Vance on Saturday. The indoor event will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a week after Trump was shot in an assassination attempt at a rally. Trump formally accepted his party's presidential nomination on Thursday at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee.       Netflix is getting rid of its cheapest ad-free plan. The 11-99 a month basic plan is being phased out and the company had already stopped accepting new sign ups. Users had been allowed to keep the plan for a time but they'll soon have to choose another. The cheapest ad-free plan now costs 15-dollars-and-49-cents a month.       Today, about 14-thousand Disneyland employees will vote on whether to authorize a strike. Members of four unions will be voting, with results expected to be announced as soon as tomorrow. For the past few months the employees have been demanding a new contract with wage increases and safety improvements. In May, union representatives filed unfair labor practices charges against Disney.        The soundtrack to a summer blockbuster and Childish Gambino's new album headline this new music Friday. "Twisters: The Album," the soundtrack for the disaster flick that features songs from some of the biggest names in Country, is out now. Also out today is what Donald Glover has said will be the final album under his Childish Gambino name. "Bando Stone & the New World" also serves as the soundtrack to Glover's upcoming film of the same name.
