Salesforce and Amazon announced major layoffs on Wednesday, beginning 2023 with significant cuts during what has already been a brutal period for the tech sector.
Amazon announced that its layoffs will impact more than 18,000 employees - the highest number so far at a major tech company.
Salesforce will lay off 10 percent of its workforce - or about 8,000 workers - after a period of over-hiring, according to its Co-CEO Marc Benioff, who said he took 'full responsibility' for the decision.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) failed again to secure enough votes to win the speaker’s gavel in the first ballot on Thursday.
With this defeat, members-elect are expected to participate in another vote, and they will continue to do so until a nominee reaches a majority. There have been seven ballots in three days as of press time.
Nineteen of the 20 GOP defectors voted for Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL). In a first since ballots started Tuesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) cast his vote for former President Donald Trump. Gaetz was sitting next to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who appeared to be amused by his decision.
Progressive megadonor George Soros has ramped up donations to a group dedicated to packing the Supreme Court, signaling progressives' determination to reshape the judiciary even after a string of defeats.
Demand Justice raked in $4.5 million from Soros's Open Society Foundations to "support policy advocacy on court reform," 2021 fiscal year tax filings show. That's nearly double the $2.5 million Soros gave the group in 2018, when it formed to oppose Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Soros's increased donations could buoy Demand Justice as the group fights to regain ground. The past two years saw the group suffer major setbacks, including the confirmation of two conservative justices and centrist Democrats' cooling on efforts to end the Senate filibuster and pack the Court.
Demand Justice does not seem willing to back down, an attitude that was signaled by the group's calls to intensify protests during the Court's last term as its conservative wing delivered historicvictories on abortion and Second Amendment rights.
New Docs Reveal Department of Defense Controlled COVID-19 Program from the Start
FDA Vaccine Approval Process was Theater
A combinationofthePREP Act, Emergency Use Authorization, and Other Transactions Authority (OTA) Shielded Big Pharma, Agencies,and Medical Participants that Delivered Unregulated Vaccines from Any Liability
WASHINGTON, DC -According to congressionally passed statutes, research of active laws,and extra details obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, the Department of Defense owns, implements, and oversees the COVID-19 vaccine program as a“Countermeasure” to foreign attack.While the public was bombarded with an orchestrated fear campaign,the U.S.Government managed the Covid response as a national security threat.
The undercover operation was orchestrated utilizing three critical legal maneuvers:
1. Emergency Use Authorization EUA.
2. Prep Act,
3. Other Transactions Authority
President Trump declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE) on March 13, 2020, under the Stafford Act, putting the National Security Council in charge of the Covid policy.Covid-19 vaccines are “medical countermeasures” – a grey area of products that are not regulated as vaccines or medicines.
“They put the National Security Council in charge and treated it as an act of war,” said Latypova.
There was breaking news from the NFL that nobody will tie to the Covid-19 vaccines because that’s just not allowed.
Arizona Cardinals All-World defensive end JJ Watt said his heart went into “A-Fib,” or atrial fibrillation, on Wednesday and had to be shocked back into rhythm. Here’s his Tweet:

In a 3-2 decision, the South Carolina Supreme Court struck down the Palmetto State’s six-week abortion ban, saying it didn’t give women sufficient time to obtain an abortion and violated the right to privacy.
The ruling means that the deliberate termination of pregnancy is protected up to 20 weeks gestation under the state’s Constitution.
Two of the doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center treating Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin held a press conference Thursday to give an update on Hamlin’s health after the 24-year-old athlete went into cardiac arrest during an NFL game earlier this week.
Dr. Timothy A. Pritts and Dr. William Knight told reporters that Hamlin has shown “substantial improvement” in his recovery over the last couple of days.
The doctors said that Hamlin was able to move his hands and feet and was able to communicate through writing, but they said it was too early to know if he would make a full recovery.
“When he asked did we win, the answer is, yes, you know, Damar, you won, you’ve won the game of life,” Pritts said.
“We know that he’s home and that appears that all cylinders are firing within his brain,” Pritts said. “Which is greatly gratifying for all of us, for the nurses and respiratory therapists and caregivers as for his family and for everybody else beyond.”
When the doctors were asked about what caused Hamlin to go into cardiac arrest, they said that they do not know, but that answers could emerge in the future.
One of the last actions of the outgoing Democratic majority in the House of Representatives was the House Ways and Means Committee’s vote to release six years’ worth of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns. They had finally caught their white whale after more than six years of the real estate mogul turned politician refusing to disclose them.
But like the dog that caught the car, the Democrats and their media sympathizers now are not sure what they have, nor are they sure what to do with it. So far, there has been no revelation of criminal activity, improper financial activity with Russia, or anything remotely reaching the nefarious plots of a Lex Luthor supervillain. Once again, their narrative is falling flat.
The House Republicans, meanwhile, are promising a series of investigations into the Biden Administration, various federal agencies’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the FBI’s handling of the Hunter Biden laptop. But, if they wanted to grab it, there was much more low-hanging fruit. Republicans could, for example, consider the unsealing of Joe Biden’s U.S. Senate records currently stored at the University of Delaware and some of his vice presidential records held at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Washington, D.C.
In 2012, Biden “donated” his Senate records to his alma mater. At the time, it seemed like an unremarkable gesture given that he was considered to be near the end of his political career and unlikely to run for president a third time after failed bids in 1988 and 2008 and with Hillary Clinton the odds-on favorite to win the 2016 nomination. But in 2019, he announced he would be challenging Donald Trump for president, and the files became relevant again. Yet UD did not make the files public, even though, according to reports, the body of material includes 1,850 boxes of paper and 415 gigabytes of digital information.
