A cyberattack disabled the website of one of Arizona’s leading COVID-19 testing agencies this week as cases surged and more and more people sought tests.
Embry Women’s Health, which operates more than 30 COVID-19 test sites across the state, was hit with a distributed denial of service attack that caused the main website to go down multiple times.

The Polish artist Joanna Piotrowska has donated 100 limited edition photographs in a bid to raise money and awareness for women’s rights in Poland.

In response, hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets across the country, protesting against a law they saw violates the human rights of women.

Part of her series Untitled (2014), the black-and-white photograph depicts a man’s face restrained by a woman’s hand.
