What is Axios?
Axios was founded in 2016, and then launched in 2017 by former Politico journalists Jim VandeHei, Mike Allen and Roy Schwartz. Axios is based on the Greek ἄξιος, meaning "worthy" or newsworthy. Axios launched with a mission to deliver news to professionals in a simple format that helps them get smarter faster across an array of topics, including politics, science, business, health, tech and media.

Today will be remembered as the day the internet broke -- before swiftly being fixed again. On Tuesday morning, websites including Amazon, Reddit, Spotify, Ebay, Twitch, Pinterest and, unfortunately, CNET went offline due to a major outage at a service called Fastly. Everywhere you looked, there were 503 errors and people complaining they couldn't access key services and news outlets, demonstrating just how much of the internet relies on this largely unheard-of cloud computing service.
At around 2:58 a.m. PT, Fastly's status update page noted an error, saying "we're currently investigating potential impact to performance with our CDN [content delivery network] services." Shortly thereafter, reports emerged on Twitter of major news publications including the BBC, CNN and The New York Times being offline. Twitter itself was still running, although the server that hosted its emojis went down, leading to some odd-looking tweets.

Human connection: simplified.
Ross Campbell reportedly has seven brain tumors and experiences confusion, including a belief that he and Scott regularly played rounds together.
The 76-year-old Campbell's daughter reached out to Scott while he was briefly back in Australia and the golfer readily agreed to make a call.
The newspaper quoted Campbell's wife, Pam, saying she stood by in tears as the pair spoke.
“They talked golf and Ross mentioned that he gets very wobbly in the legs when he goes out to play. He’s in a wheelchair and can hardly stand up but Adam must have sensed this and said he gets wobbly in his legs, too,” Pam Campbell told the Herald. Continue reading.

Under its internet plan, Santa Clara County had used up its monthly data capacity, which allowed Verizon to significantly slow service. Although the high-speed wireless data plan provides an unlimited amount of data at a set monthly cost, speeds can be reduced if the consumer exceeds certain levels of use during that billing cycle.
Verizon restored full speeds only after the department subscribed to a more expensive plan, a move the company has since called an “operational error,” as they should have lifted the data cap as soon as firefighters called.
