CNN politics | Hackers breached Florida health care system, potentially exposing data on 1.3 million people
(CNN) – Hackers breached the computer networks of a southeast Florida health care system in October and may have accessed sensitive personal and financial information on over 1.3 million people, the health care system announced this week.

Plenty of people make New Year’s resolutions. Bill Gates isn’t one of them.
“I’ve never been a big New Year’s resolution person. I don’t have any specific goal in mind for 2022,” the 66-year-old billionaire Microsoft co-founder wrote in his annual end-of-year blog post last month. “But what I do hope is that next year is a lot more settled than this one.”
Instead of setting goals for the coming year, Gates asks himself a series of questions that help him take “stock of [his] work and personal life,” according to his 2018 “Year in Review” essay.
