- China clamping down on use of VPNs to evade Great Firewall
By JOE McDONALD, AP Business Writer - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
BEIJING (AP) — China is tightening control over foreign companies' internet use in a move some worry might disrupt their operations or jeopardize trade secrets as part of a crackdown on technology that allows web surfers to evade Beijing's online censorship.In a letter to corporate customers seen by The Associated Press, the biggest Chinese internet service provider says virtual private networks, which create encrypted links between computers and can be used to see sites blocked by Beijing's web filters, will be permitted only to connect to a company's headquarters abroad.The letter from state-owned China Telecom Ltd. says VPN users are barred from linking to other sites outside China, a change that might block access to news, social media or business services that are obscured by its "Great Firewall."Authorities have tried to reassure companies they won't be affected, but if the rules in the China Telecom letter are enforced, they could hamper activity ranging from gathering information for business deals to employees working on business trips.A Western diplomat who asked not to be identified further due to the sensitivity of the issue said companies have told his government they worry the controls might lead to weaker data security and trade secrets being leaked to Chinese competitors.[...] companies increasingly limit VPN access to employees such as media managers "with a critical business need" to see a banned website, according to Jake Parker, vice president of China operations for the U.S.-China Business Council."Foreign trade enterprises and multinational companies that need a cross-border line for their own office use can lease one from an authorized telecoms enterprise," said the statement.

By Jenna Lyons - Sunday Aug 27, 2017
San Francisco’s southern neighborhoods got a little greener Saturday as hundreds of volunteers and city officials gathered at Balboa High School for the city’s largest tree planting project to date. Around 600 volunteers ranging from public works employees in green vests to city residents in orange vests met at the school Saturday morning to prepare to plant 500 trees throughout the Ingleside, Excelsior and Crocker-Amazon neighborhoods. Sunny weather kept spirits high, despite the looming shadow brought on by a planned right-wing gathering that led officials to close Alamo Square Park in the Western Addition.
