Ruling keeps data flows with UK open


The European Commission lifted the threat of crucial data flows between Europe and Britain being blocked as it said on Friday that privacy safeguards in the United Kingdom met European standards. In a key post-Brexit decision, the EU executive said that British authoritie­s had sufficient measures in place to protect European users’ personal data, freeing up data transfers for businesses as well as for police. The decision would ensure that data protection will “never be compromise­d when personal data travel across the Channel”, said EU Justice Commission­er Didier Reynders.

The Houston Rockets are set to part ways with center DeMarcus Cousins sometime next week, The Athletic reported on Saturday.

The Rockets reportedly plan to use a smaller lineup after emerging star Christian Wood returns from an ankle injury.

Cousins is Houston’s leading rebounder (7.6 per game) and is averaging 9.6 points and 20.2 minutes in 25 games (11 starts).

Cousins, 30, once was an elite big man and averaged more than 20 points per game in five straight seasons while playing for the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans. He was an All-Star in four of those campaigns.

But Cousins suffered a torn Achilles in January 2018 during his one full season with the Pelicans and has never regained his form. He also sustained a torn quadriceps during the 2019 playoffs while toiling for the Golden State Warriors.
