Ask Amy: I just found out my fiance put a tracker on my phone

Dear Amy: I recently found out that my fiancé has been tracking me via an app on my phone.  This is an app that he would’ve had to go into my phone to set up and enable. Amy Dickinson  I haven’t done anything at all to inspire this behavior from him. He’s also never really had much of a long-term girlfriend. Thinking back to different situations where he has oddly questioned some things, I realize that he has been been tracking me for a while, now. We have been together for a year and a half. I am supposed to be preparing to move in with him a long distance away. This involves picking up my whole life and leaving where I live.

By Julia Hollingsworth, CNN COVAX has signed agreements with two Chinese pharmaceutical companies to buy more than half a billion of their Covid-19 vaccines by the first half of next year, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (Gavi) announced Monday. Under the agreements, Chinese vaccine makers Sinopharm and Sinovac will begin to make 110 million doses immediately available, according to a news release from Gavi, a public-private global health partnership that is co-leading COVAX, a worldwide initiative aimed at distributing vaccines to countries regardless of wealth.

City Of Sacramento, Downtown Partnership Offering Return-To-Work Incentives

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Back to business, the city of Sacramento and the Downtown Sacramento Partnership are teaming up on a big giveaway in hopes of bringing employees back to the metro. Businesses like All Spicery have had to make a pandemic pivot after their typical clientele changed. “A lot of the times we’re picking up people who aren’t working downtown,” said Nicole Vaughn, who works at the store. She said she’s been seeing fewer state workers than she’d been used to since COVID hit. “Most of our foot traffic had been state workers on their break or after work,” she said. These days, more cars pass through than actual feet hit the ground. Many restaurants have taken note of the empty tables. Both the city and the DSP want to see that change. “Employees are the heart and soul of this district,” said Michael Ault, with the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. “It’s easy to say ‘Hey, stay working from home,’ but we want people to know we miss you.” Ault said, pre-pandemic, around 100,000 people worked downtown, and downtown Sacramento generates 40% of the city’s property…

Stockton Church Deacon Dead, Parishioner in Critical Condition After Apartment Shooting

STOCKTON (CBS13) – An 87-year-old man is dead and a 33-year-old mother is fighting for her life after both were shot at their Stockton home over the weekend. The two attended the same Stockton church and the pastor says that 87-year-year old was his deacon and had just opened his door to the woman so she would not become homeless. He is identifying the man found dead from gunshot wounds as Deacon Robert and the woman in critical condition as Sister Bailey. “They both was regular attendants and I love both of them,” Harvest of Blessing Church Pastor Willie Pruitt said. “I tell the people as much as we would want to suggest, just don’t judge, just don’t speculate because we wasn’t there, and we don’t know what happened.” Pastor Pruitt shared cell phone video of Deacon Robert singing in the church just weeks ago. Pastor Pruitt said the deacon had recently allowed her to move in to avoid becoming homeless. “Tragedy happened,” Pruitt said. An evidence marker and dried blood remain on the apartment’s sliding glass door from the night of the violent encounter.…
