Opinion | American leadership could save what is left of the global Internet

Even in many open democratic societies, there is talk of “data sovereignty” and moves to clamp down on U.S. companies and the sharing of data. In Europe, regulators and courts have thrown into doubt the free flow of data between the European Union and the United States. Many other countries are actively working on plans to impose “data localization,” requiring citizens’ data to be stored domestically and placing significant limits on the flow of data across borders.

This desire for greater sovereignty is natural and understandable. Policymakers are grappling with legitimate concerns about the rules that govern content and the use of data at scale. They are also debating the proper size and power of global tech companies. Hovering above these issues is a fundamental question: What do we want the Internet to be?

This is where the Biden administration comes in. An opportunity exists for U.S. leadership to create

Addressing the farmers’ grievance redressal meet held remotely on Friday, Mr. Vishnu said the small and marginal farmers would get 100% subsidy for installing micro irrigation gadgets like dripper, sprinkler etc. while others would be given 75% grant for this purpose as it would save a lot of water while ensuring better yield. As the district had received ₹10.68 crore for installing micro irrigation equipment on 2,500 hectares during this fiscal, the farmers should make use of this opportunity to have better yield in sugarcane, coconut, oil palm, groundnut, grams, cotton etc. while saving a lot of water.

President Trump’s campaign on Monday replaced its entire legal team arguing his key federal lawsuit in Pennsylvania, naming conservative Harrisburg talk show host Marc Scaringi the lead lawyer in the case. The two Texas lawyers Scaringi replaced had been appointed Friday, taking over for the law firm Porter, Wright Morris & Arthur, which bowed out.On Monday night, Scaringi asked U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann to move back Tuesday’s make-or-break hearing in the case, and Brann said no, “Scarinigi is aware of the schedule set by the court in this matter” and “counsel for the parties are expected to be prepared for argument and questioning.” The lawsuit in question — Trump’s main effort to overturn his loss in the state to President-elect Joe Biden — was dramatically scaled back Sunday.Scaringi was already publicly skeptical of Trump’s

the computer program that could help save your job

By Sinead Cruise

LONDON (Reuters) – Bank of England Chief Economist Andy Haldane has signed up to judge the winner of a ‘war game’ designed to help firms find alternatives to mass layoffs in the face of a coronavirus-driven slowdown.

Confronted with the most unpredictable pandemic in memory, cost-conscious firms have already axed millions of staff worldwide, while UK redundancies hit a record high of 314,000 in the quarter to Sept. 30, official data showed on Tuesday.

Unilever-owned tech firm uFlexReward created the COVID-19 War Game to allow executives to explore the impact of huge job cuts on their future earnings prospects.

“Many companies across the UK are facing financial strains as a result of the COVID crisis,” Haldane told Reuters.
