2. Who gets your digital assets - heirs or hackers? -

A bank or brokerage can’t just take your money when you die. If you don’t have a will or other estate plan, the laws of your state determine who gets the value in those accounts.

Your digital assets are a different story. Your online photos and videos, frequent flyer miles, cryptocurrency and other digitally stored files may well disappear without a trace if you don’t make a plan to pass them along.

3. Verizon sells early social-media darling Tumblr -

NEW YORK (AP) — Verizon is selling Tumblr, a darling of early social media, to the owner of blogging platform WordPress.

8. Google to acquire data firm Looker for $2.6 billion -

The company says Looker will give its cloud-computing customers more ways to use their data. The companies were already working together and share about 350 customers including Buzzfeed, Hearst and Yahoo! The deal is expected to close later this year.

9. Fed says economic gains tempered by trade worries -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Most areas of the country saw a slight improvement in economic activity in the spring, but those gains were tempered by concerns over rising trade tensions, the Federal Reserve said Wednesday.

10. Can Carolina blue transform VU’s black and gold? -

The easy path. That’s never been the way for Jerry Stackhouse. He’s always taken the hard road to success.

Legendary North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith made sure of that, and it was a lesson that Vanderbilt’s new men’s basketball coach has never forgotten.

11. Yahoo to pay $117.5M in latest settlement of massive breach -

13. Facebook's messaging ambitions amount to much more than chat -

Facebook, already the leader in enabling you to share photos, videos and links, now wants to be a force in messaging, commerce, payments and just about everything else you do online.

The company's ambitions harken to how WeChat has become the centerpiece of digital life in China, where people use it to order movie tickets, subway passes, food delivery and rides. If Facebook succeeds in turning its own messaging services into a platform for everything, it could ultimately threaten established services such as Snapchat, Yelp, Venmo, eBay and even Apple and Amazon.

14. Trump bump? NYT adds subscribers, grows digital revenue -

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Times Co. is adding large numbers of digital subscribers and growing its digital revenue.

16. Verizon cutting about 800 jobs in troubled media business -

NEW YORK (AP) — Verizon is cutting about 800 jobs, or 7 percent of its media and advertising employees, as it reorganizes the troubled division.

The wireless company had hoped to create an ad business that could compete with Google and Facebook. It spent roughly $10 billion buying up former Internet pioneers Yahoo and AOL . But Verizon found benefits from integrating those two companies were less than expected. The company slashed the value of its media unit by nearly $5 billion in December.

17. Report: Facebook shared private messages with partners -

Facebook gave some companies more extensive access to users' personal data than it has previously revealed, letting them read private messages or see the names of friends without consent, according to a New York Times report.

18. AP sources: Trump mulling a wide-ranging shakeup -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Yahoo has agreed to pay $50 million in damages and provide two years of free credit-monitoring services to about 200 million people in the U.S. and Israel whose email addresses and other personal information were stolen as part of the biggest security breach in history.

20. Facebook: Hackers accessed personal data from 29M accounts -

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook says hackers accessed a wide swath of information — ranging from emails and phone numbers to more personal details like sites visited and places checked into — from millions of accounts as part of a security breach the company disclosed two weeks ago.

21. Facebook says 50M user accounts affected by security breach -

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook reported a major security breach in which 50 million user accounts were accessed by unknown attackers.

The stolen data allowed the attackers to "seize control" of those user accounts, Facebook said. Facebook has logged out the 50 million breached users — plus another 40 million who were vulnerable to the attack. Users don't need to change their Facebook passwords, it said.

22. Report: Head of Verizon's AOL, Yahoo in talks to depart -

NEW YORK (AP) — The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Verizon's media and advertising chief, Tim Armstrong, is in talks to leave.

23. US says North Korean charged in Sony hack, WannaCry attack -

Franklin Civil War Roundtable. Williamson County historian Rick Warwick will present “The Freedmen’s Bureau in Williamson County.” The U.S. Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands, popularly known as the Freedmen’s Bureau, was established in 1865 by Congress to assist former slaves in the aftermath of the Civil War. The Bureau was intended to provide food, housing, medical help, schools and legal assistance to the newly freed population in the South. Rick Warwick has researched the original labor contracts signed by 476 former slaves in Williamson County and will be discussing the difficult “negotiations” experienced by these men, usually with their previous owners. Oftentimes these contracts were turned against the men giving the landowners great advantage. Sunday, 3 p.m. Free event. The Franklin Civil War Round Table is an educational program of Franklin’s Charge, and meets each month at Carnton Plantation’s Fleming Center, 1345 Eastern Flank Circle. Information: fcwrt@yahoo.com, www.franklinscharge.org/the-round-table.

30. Trump accuses Justice Dept of being 'deep state' -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is accusing the Justice Department of being part of the "deep state" and suggesting it "must finally act" against a top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former FBI director James Comey.

31. Game of thrones? UT’s cast not that smart -

When he was president of the University of Tennessee in 1959-70, Andy Holt often referred to the Vols athletics program, and particularly its football program, as “the front porch of the university.”

32. Uber reveals cover-up of hack affecting 57M riders, drivers -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Uber is coming clean about its cover-up of a year-old hacking attack that stole personal information about more than 57 million of the beleaguered ride-hailing service's customers and drivers.

33. Uber reveals cover-up of hack affecting 57M riders, drivers -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Uber is coming clean about its cover-up of a year-old hacking attack that stole personal information about more than 57 million of the beleaguered ride-hailing service's customers and drivers.

34. History will be kind to the Butch Jones era -

After the fact, Butch Jones’ shortcomings are there for all to see. He could recruit talented players but he couldn’t develop them. His hiring of assistant coaches was haphazard. He choked in late-game situations. He blurted out half-baked comments at press conferences. His interpersonal relationships were strained. He talked tough but had a thin skin.

35. Jones’ blind spot: Even 5-stars need coaching -

When he was hired as Tennessee’s football coach in December 2012, Butch Jones used the term “infallible” to describe the system he was bringing to Knoxville.

Even if we give Jones the benefit of the doubt on the system he has attempted to install at UT, it’s clear that the head coach is far from infallible. A 3-3 record in Year 5 – with all three losses to SEC East competition, no less – is reflective of a coach who isn’t getting the job done.

36. US tech giants may find their future shaped by Europe -

LONDON (AP) — Silicon Valley is a uniquely American creation, the product of an entrepreneurial spirit and no-holds-barred capitalism that now drives many aspects of modern life.

But the likes of Facebook, Google and Apple are increasingly facing an uncomfortable truth: it is Europe's culture of tougher oversight of companies, not America's laissez-faire attitude, which could soon rule their industry as governments seek to combat fake news and prevent extremists from using the internet to fan the flames of hatred.

37. A win vs. Indy? Finally? Depends on Mariota -

If the Titans are serious about winning the AFC South division and securing the playoff berth that goes with it, it’s time to draw a line in the standings.

Their Monday Night Football game against Indianapolis looms as an opportunity to send a message to the rest of the division and perhaps to themselves. It’s time to put up or shut up. If not now, when?

38. Hiring Scott as OC a big mistake for Jones -

If/when Butch Jones is fired at Tennessee, a number of reasons will be cited. Among them:

-- A 41-0 no-show at home against Georgia

-- A combined 3-11 record against rivals Alabama, Florida and Georgia

39. New Vols AD fixing Hart’s errors. Jones next? -

What does John Currie’s decision to reinstitute the name “Lady Vols” for all women’s sports at the University of Tennessee have to do with Butch Jones? Bear with me:

What if Currie is intent on doing a Donald Trump? Explanation: One of the biggest criticisms (or points of approval, depending on your political leanings) of President Trump is that he seems hell-bent on undoing the accomplishments of the Obama Administration – repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, undercut environmental protections, etc.

40. After Equifax, public shaming but GOP wary of new rules -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Prospects are good for a public shaming in the Equifax data breach, but it's unlikely Congress will institute sweeping new regulations after hackers accessed the personal information of an estimated 143 million Americans.

41. Vandy-Bama finds relevance under Mason -

Who would’ve thought the center of the Southeastern Conference football universe would be Nashville in late September?

Sure, it’s always a big deal when Alabama comes to town – any town. The Crimson Tide is, as usual, ranked No. 1. Nick Saban has created yet another monster.

42. Guarantano must prove his worth on the field -

Two games into the season, Quinten Dormady has established himself as Tennessee’s quarterback. For now.

As we have learned in four previous seasons with Butch Jones as coach, everything is subject to change. Both at UT and in previous coaching stops at Central Michigan and Cincinnati, Jones has not been afraid to change quarterbacks when the mood strikes.

43. Equifax breach exposes 143 million people to identity theft -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Credit monitoring company Equifax has been hit by a high-tech heist that exposed the Social Security numbers and other sensitive information about 143 million Americans. Now the unwitting victims have to worry about the threat of having their identities stolen.

44. More than NFL team on line in Titans sale -

Anybody got an extra billion dollars lying around? If so, you can own one-third share of an NFL franchise plus a handful of other assorted business ventures.

That’s the situation involving the Tennessee Titans as they head into what could be a very eventful season. Susie Adams Smith, one of three children of the late franchise founder Bud Adams, is attempting to divest herself of one-third interest in KSA Industries, the business conglomerate built by her father.

45. Vols at their best when expectations are low -

Based on preseason predictions, the SEC East is pretty much a toss-up between Georgia and Florida. My question: Why not Tennessee?

Granted, the Vols must identify a quarterback. And establish a featured running back. And find more than one playmaker at wide receiver. And fix a defense that was embarrassingly porous late last season.

46. Year 3: Time for Mariota to become a star -

If Year 1 was a good start and Year 2 was another step in the right direction, what should we expect of Marcus Mariota in Year 3?

How about a playoff berth for the team he quarterbacks.

Granted, there are many other factors in play that will determine the success, failure or return to mediocrity of the Titans in 2017. Has the defensive backfield been successfully retooled? Can the offensive line remain one of the best in the NFL? Will the additions at wide receiver pay the expected dividends?

47. Freshman impact: Vols’ all-time best rookie running backs -

Butch Jones let us in on a little secret recently when he said his freshman running backs will play for Tennessee this season. That’s plural – running backs. Jones’ plan is to use all three freshman backs – Ty Chandler, Tim Jordan and Trey Coleman – in some sort of rotation behind junior John Kelly. Given the nature of the game, putting the football in the hands of freshmen is risky business. But Jones is taking the plunge.

48. Down on the corner: Titans fix old problem -

The Titans have been searching for years for an answer at cornerback. They think they found two answers during the offseason.

Through free agency and the draft, second-year general manager Jon Robinson orchestrated a total makeover of the crucial position, adding veteran Logan Ryan and rookie Adoree’ Jackson to a defense that has been easy pickings for a well-thrown football.

49. 2 quarterbacks seldom better than 1 -

The old adage holds that if you have two quarterbacks you really have none.

Are you listening, Butch Jones?

Jones continues to send signals that Tennessee may proceed with a plan to use both junior Quinten Dormady and redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano in the opener against Georgia Tech. If the two-quarterback system is successful, the Vols could continue to play both in subsequent games.

50. Remember Memphis? Titans would rather not -

Time flies, doesn’t it? A lot can happen in 20 years. Think about it: In 1997, Bill Clinton was sworn in for his second term as president. Princess Di was killed in a car crash. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 8,000 for the first time.

51. SEC hot seat index: From Saban to Sumlin -

When it comes to Southeastern Conference football coaches, there are three kinds of seats – hot, hotter and hottest.

There is, of course, one exception. You guessed it

Nick Saban. To quote the late ESPN anchor Stuart Scott, Saban’s seat is as cool as the other side of your pillow.

52. Jones has definitely proven he can recruit -

When in doubt, do what you do best – recruit. That seems to be the approach of Tennessee Vols coach Butch Jones.

While many UT fans, and some in the media, are portraying this as a make-or-break season, Jones is planning for his future by stockpiling commitments for 2018 and beyond.

53. Mueller probe could draw focus to Russian crime operations -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government has long warned that Russian organized crime posed a threat to democratic institutions, including "criminally linked oligarchs" who might collude with the Russian government to undermine business competition.

54. Titans will have best roster in more than a decade -

The folks at Pro Football Focus recently ranked the Tennessee Titans’ roster No. 3.

Not third in the AFC South. Third in the entire NFL.

This means one of two things: Either Pro Football Focus has gotten hold of some bad videotape or the Titans finally have some really good players.

55. Paying Fulmer $100K will pay dividends for UT athletics -

What does Phillip Fulmer’s hiring as special advisor to University of Tennessee president Joe DiPietro have to do with Vols football coach Butch Jones?

Not much.

If Jones continues to win enough games while avoiding issues that reflect poorly on the school, he’ll continue to be UT’s coach. If not, he’ll be jettisoned. Either way, there’s nothing Fulmer can do about it.

56. Cup run a top moment in state sports history -

Time and again during the recent Stanley Cup Final, people asked the rhetorical question: Is this the greatest moment in Nashville sports history?

Let the debate continue. But let’s take it a step further: Was this the greatest moment in the state’s sports history?

57. Vanderbilt’s toughest year comes up short -

When the Vanderbilt baseball team finished its season one step short of its goal – the College World Series – there was a sense of profound disappointment for the Commodores. That’s to be expected. The last pitch of any season is cause for sadness if you’re a committed baseball program that doesn’t achieve the ultimate goal.

58. Verizon takes over Yahoo to complete $4.5 billion deal -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Verizon has taken over Yahoo, completing a $4.5 billion deal that will usher in a new management team to attempt to wring more advertising revenue from one of the internet's best-known brands.

59. US stocks bounce back to records as tech companies rise -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks bounced back to record highs Tuesday as investors put an end to a two-day drop for technology companies. Energy and consumer-focused companies also made outsize gains.

60. How Verizon hopes to grab digital ad dollars with Yahoo -

NEW YORK (AP) — Verizon has a simple goal in buying Yahoo: It wants to challenge Google and Facebook in the huge and lucrative field of digital advertising. But Verizon faces its own challenge in doing so, given that it will be competing against a slew of other companies also looking to break in.

61. East is west but the SEC knows what’s best -

East is East and West is West – except where the Southeastern Conference is concerned.

The SEC politburo again has scoffed at the idea of adjusting its football divisions by true geographic standards, leaving Missouri, the third most westerly conference member in terms of longitude, in the Eastern Division.

62. Titans poised to break free of weak AFC South -

When Marcus Mariota participated on the first day of the Titans’ recent organized team activities – OTAs for you hard-core NFL fans – it sent two messages to the rest of the AFC South:

63. CEO pay by the numbers: How big were last year's raises? -

The typical big-company CEO raked in $11.5 million last year in salary, stock and other compensation, according to a study by executive data firm Equilar for The Associated Press. That's an 8.5 percent raise from a year earlier, the biggest in three years.

64. Wide Receiver U? That’s so 20 years ago -

At the 2015 SEC Media Days, Tennessee coach Butch Jones referred to his school as “the original Wide Receiver U.”

The reference goes back to the days when the Vols were loaded with fast, talented pass receivers on the perimeter. In a heady stretch from 1982-91, UT had six wide receivers selected in the first round of the NFL draft – Anthony Hancock, Willie Gault, Clyde Duncan, Tim McGee, Anthony Miller and Alvin Harper.

65. Women CEOs earned more last year, but few were in top job -

NEW YORK (AP) — Women CEOs earned big bucks last year, but there's still very few of them running the world's largest companies.

The median pay for a female CEO was $13.1 million last year, up 9 percent from 2015, according to an analysis by executive data firm Equilar and The Associated Press. By comparison, male CEOs earned $11.4 million, also up 9 percent.

66. 10 highest-paid female CEOs -

These are the 10 highest-paid women CEOs for 2016, as calculated by The Associated Press and Equilar, an executive data firm.

___

1. Virginia Rometty

International Business Machines Corp.

67. If Saban’s the best, why aren’t his protégés? -

In a recent article at CBSSports.com, Nick Saban was ranked the top coach in the so-called Power Five conferences.

No surprise there.

With all due respect to what Urban Meyer has accomplished at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and now Ohio State, he’s still playing catch-up to Saban. The same can be said for Dabo Swinney and his recent run at Clemson.

68. Time to turn down the flame on Jones’ hot seat -

When it comes to Butch Jones and the recent NFL draft, it’s a matter of perspective. Remember, no Tennessee Vols were drafted in the previous two years, which is a reflection on the recruiting by Jones’ predecessor, Derek Dooley. The fact that Tennessee had six players picked this time around – all in the first four rounds – speaks volumes, to wit:

69. Robinson gives Mariota weapons for success -

Just when we think we’ve figured out Titans G.M. Jon Robinson, he reinvents himself. On the first night of the recent NFL draft, we assumed Robinson would play it safe, trading the No. 5 overall pick to acquire more draft capital.

70. Hits and misses in UT’s quest for junior college gold -

Things were supposed to be so easy for Jonathan Kongbo. He arrived at the University of Tennessee last year as the No. 1-ranked junior college prospect in the nation. He had the combination of size and speed that everybody wants in a defensive lineman. The sky was the limit.

71. ‘Good locker room’ doesn’t happen by accident -

The first time I heard the term “good locker room” in relation to an NFL team, I figured it had something to do with TVs, air conditioning and nearby shower accommodations.

As usual, I was wrong.

72. Newspaper decline continues to weigh on AP earnings -

NEW YORK (AP) — Earnings at The Associated Press shrank substantially last year compared with 2015, when the news organization enjoyed a large tax benefit that skewed its results. Revenue also edged downward, reflecting continued contraction in the newspaper industry and a stronger U.S. dollar that reduced the value of overseas sales.

73. Look for Shoop to improve Vol defense -

The most unexpected development during Tennessee’s 2016 football season wasn’t three straight losses in October or the disappearing act at Vanderbilt.

It was the utter collapse of the Vols’ defense.

74. Titans have rarely found success drafting SEC players -

The NFL Draft is fast approaching, which raises an interesting question: Is this the year the Titans finally shop locally and target Southeastern Conference talent?

If history is any indicator, the answer: No.

75. Can top recruiting class, loyalty save Warlick’s job? -

It looks like Butch Jones isn’t the only University of Tennessee coach on the hot seat.

The Lady Vols’ second-round exit from the NCAA Tournament increased the scrutiny and pressure on Holly Warlick. After five seasons and no trips to the Women’s Final Four, the clock is ticking.

76. The winner isn’t always a winner in UT QB battles -

The time has come to write a new chapter of Tennessee Vols football.

Which quarterback is going to write it?

With spring practice unfolding, it looks like a two-man race between junior Quinten Dormady and redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano – not necessarily in that order.

77. Football staff shakeups rarely save coaching jobs -

Phillip Fulmer’s was notorious during his glory years as Tennessee’s football coach for maintaining staff stability.

Some of his assistant coaches were mediocre recruiters. So, what? Fulmer figured he could take up the slack. It was more important to him that the staff have year-to-year continuity.

78. New AD is bad news for struggling Vol coaches -

The hiring of John Currie as the University of Tennessee’s athletics director conveys a number of messages. One of them: Butch Jones is officially on the clock.

Based on Currie’s history at UT, as well as his eight-year track record as Kansas State’s athletics director, it’s safe to say he isn’t afraid to pull the trigger when it comes to coaches – for better or worse.

79. Put blame on Webster for lousy Titan draft picks -

When wide receiver Kendall Wright was a healthy scratch for the Titans’ final game of the season, it further underscored why this franchise is still struggling to gain altitude in the NFL.

In 2012, Wright was the team’s first-round draft pick. By the end of his fifth pro season, he couldn’t even get on the field.

80. Dobbs approaches NFL bid with serious intent -

Josh Dobbs has spent the last four years preparing for a future in aerospace engineering.

For now, though, that career is still on the runway. First, he’s hoping to take flight in the NFL.

81. Yahoo salvages Verizon deal with $350 million discount -

NEW YORK (AP) — Yahoo is taking a $350 million hit on its previously announced $4.8 billion sale to Verizon in a concession for security lapses that exposed personal information stored in more than 1 billion Yahoo user accounts.

82. Yahoo issues new security warning to users -

LONDON (AP) — Yahoo is warning users of potentially malicious activity on their accounts between 2015 and 2016. It's the latest development in the internet company's investigation of a mega-breach that exposed 1 billion users' data several years ago.

83. Free agent frenzy? That’s not Titans GM Robinson's style -

Upon his arrival as the Tennessee Titans’ general manager in January 2016, Jon Robinson made an immediate impact with the trade for DeMarco Murray and his wheeling/dealing approach to the draft.

84. Scott the recruiter must now be Scott the OC -

When it comes to offense, Butch Jones thinks he knows what’s best for the Tennessee Vols. And he’s willing to bet his job on it.

By elevating Larry Scott from tight ends coach/special teams coordinator to offensive coordinator, Jones is staying the course. And it’s his own course.

85. Hart’s tenure as AD has been mostly good for Vols -

While we wait – and wait and wait and wait – for the University of Tennessee to hire its next athletics director, let’s ponder the man who soon will walk out the door.

Dave Hart is leaving the UT athletics department better than he found it. He got things back on solid financial footing. He brought a measure of stability.

86. Slow pace of AD hire typical of how UT works -

About the University of Tennessee’s athletics director search: What’s your hurry?

It only took a little over five months after Dave Hart’s retirement announcement to start the process of hiring a search firm and finalizing a committee that will oversee the selection process. The last thing you want to do is rush things, right?

87. Is Saban's dominance bad for SEC? Of course not -

I keep reading that Nick Saban is ruining SEC football because his Alabama program is so dominant. And I just don’t get it.

The misguided Saban-as-Satan logic goes this way:

Saban’s teams overwhelm the conference competition to the point that the other 13 programs quickly grow tired of not being able to match up and fans cry for change. That leads to a destabilization of the conference with a constant reshuffling of coaches.

88. Robinson’s success warrants any title he wants -

In the immediate aftermath of the Tennessee Titans’ turnaround season, Jon Robinson’s title was expanded to executive vice president and general manager.

Considering what Robinson has accomplished in less than 12 months on the job, I’d give him any title he wants. If he prefers “football czar,” so be it.

89. US stock indexes shift mostly higher in afternoon trading -

Health care companies led the major U.S. stock indexes mostly higher in afternoon trading Tuesday, as the market gave up some of its gains from earlier in the day. Consumer goods and financial stocks also rose, while real estate companies were the biggest laggard. Crude oil prices headed lower.

90. Jones picks a bad time to lead UT football program -

There was a time in University of Tennessee football history when a nine-win season and a victory over Nebraska in a bowl would guarantee a coach something just this side of a lifetime contract.

But not right now.

91. Climer: Strunk has provided long-missing ownership stability -

Since becoming controlling owner of the Titans in March 2015, it has become customary for Amy Adams Strunk to spend a half-hour or so on the sideline visiting with coaches and players prior to games.

92. Dobbs’ change of heart a great gift to Vol fans -

In the spirit of the holiday season, Joshua Dobbs is the gift that keeps on giving.
