A set of origami-style lights illuminate the cozy setup of Instagram user @mrisad, an integration delivery manager. The Nanoleaf lights floating above his dual monitors evoke the control panels from some ’70s sci-fi show. And they’re integrated with HomeKit, Apple’s home-automation platform.

With a little background, here are the basics of contact tracing and what you need to know.
Apple has created a $50 million advance fund to help independent music labels and distributors pay their artists and keep operations afloat.
