When the Australian was asked about Kohli's comments, he said: "It's a big compliment from Virat. I'm not the most skillful leg-spinner in the world. Guys like Kuldeep Yadav and Rashid Khan are guys that are really hard to pick. But one thing I have always tried to do is have a strong character." … [Read more...] about India vs Australia: Zampa expects an ‘even more switched on’ Kohli after first ODI
But with her call for Franken’s resignation came a characterization that Rebecca Traister called the “seventh dwarf of female political personalities.” Gillibrand was swiftly dubbed an opportunist, for whom denouncing Franken was politically expedient and self-serving—labels that were often lobbed at the likes of Clinton. The framing of Gillibrand as an opportunist then came up during the July debate, when she questioned an old op-ed Biden wrote that claimed that when women worked outside of the home, it led to “the deterioration of the family.” Biden retorted by saying Gillibrand had previously praised his efforts around gender equity, and that he could only think of one thing that had changed since. “I don’t know what’s happened except that you’re now running for president,” he said. … [Read more...] about 6 moments from the 2020 presidential race that mirror what women face at work
“We still have no power from the grid there,” Abdon Escalera, who works with the Boys and Girls Club, said on Friday. And on other parts of the island, like the capital of San Juan, where the organization has another building with a solar and battery system, the power is currently “coming and going,” he says. The earthquake damaged a power plant in the southern part of the island that is responsible for around a quarter of the electricity used in Puerto Rico; the head of Puerto Rico’s embattled electric power authority, PREPA, said that the power plant might be offline for as long as a year.

Whether the United States is ready is more complicated. Sure, the U.S. military has fearsome offensive capabilities: The Stuxnet computer worm, which was allegedly built in partnership with Israel, is believed to have done massive damage to Iran’s nuclear program, for example. But the U.S. remains vulnerable at home. According to the Department of Homeland Security, the number of reported cyberincidents on federal systems increased more than tenfold between 2006 and 2015, culminating in a data breach at the Office of Management and Budget (attributed to China) that compromised about 4 million federal employees. And while the U.S. has yet to experience a major cyberattack on critical infrastructure, foreign adversaries and various nonstate actors have been probing our defenses. This past summer, three different cybersecurity firms reported observing Iran-linked hackers attempting to gain access to U.S. government targets in what appeared to be the first phase of a … [Read more...] about ‘We’re always ready’: Would the U.S. win a cyberwar with Iran?
