Updated: August 18, 2020 09:38 AM

A new measure of COVID's impact, the review site Yelp reports more than 100,000 businesses have permanently closed since March 1. That's about 19,000 more than what was reported a month ago and because all businesses aren't on Yelp, the actual number is likely higher.

Tik-Tok has launched its own Twitter account, and a new information hub. The company said it's all part of an effort to fight misinformation and rumors about its social media platform. Tik-Tok is under pressure from the Trump administration.

It could be a record-setting launch Tuesday morning in Florida. A Space-X rocket is scheduled to take dozens of satellites into space. It will be the sixth launch for the rocket's "first stage booster", which is a new record. They hope to retrieve that booster so it could possibly be used again.
