Everyone who loves Naomi Osaka please come this way!! Everyone moves.
We just cannot get enough of this awesome lady who first got our attention when she was almost sad after beating Serena Williams last year. Since then she has gone on to do amazing things.
Naomi Osaka has agreed to a deal with Nike, the sports apparel giant has announced. The Japanese, who had previously been tied to rival Adidas, will first wear Nike gear at the Stuttgart Grand Prix later this month, the U.S. sportswear maker said on its website.
“I’m proud to become a member of the Nike family and excited about getting involved in all of the opportunities Nike has to offer,” said Osaka in the statement.
“Nike has a legendary track record of writing history and I look forward to being a part of those moments for many years to come.”
The Japanese has won the last two Grand Slams, having become the first ever Japanese player to win one of the four majors when she overcame Serena Williams at the U.S. Open in September.
“Naomi is an incredible talent to add to our roster and help drive our commitment to inspiring a new generation of female athletes,” Nike VP Amy Montagne added in the statement.
“We are thrilled to have her join our team.”
Osaka’s ascent to the top of the women’s game has made her a hot marketable commodity for the world’s top brands.
She already has deals with Japanese airline All Nippon Airways, car manufacturer Nissan and watch company Citizen, amongst others.
Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row
Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.
The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.
Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.
The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.
“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
