Ktaka Speaker disqualifies 14 more MLAs

first_imgBengaluru: Karnataka Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar on Sunday disqualified 14 more rebel MLAs under the anti-defection law till the end of the assembly term in 2023, a day ahead of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa seeking the trust vote in the assembly to prove his majority.Eleven Congress MLAs and three JD(S) lawmakers faced the axe from the speaker, who pronounced his ruling at a hurriedly called news conference, two days after Yediyurappa took the oath as chief minister after the collapse of the Congress-JD(S) coalition government. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsThe Speaker’s action would have no bearing on the fate of the Yediyurappa government, as with disqualification of the rebel MLAs with immediate effect, their absence would reduce the effective strength of the House, making it a walk in the park for the BJP. The absence of 20 MLAs-17 rebels, also one each legislator from Congress, BSP and Independent-during the vote of confidence motion moved by the Congress-JD(S) coalition government headed by H D Kumaraswamy had led to Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursdayits downfall after weeks of drama marked by murky political intrigues and court battle.With the disqualification of 17 rebel MLAs -14 from the Congress and three from JD(S) – on Sunday, the effective strength of the 224-member assembly excluding the Speaker, who has a casting vote in case of a tie, is 207. The magic figure required will be 104. BJP along with the support of one independent has 106 members, Congress 66 (including nominated), JD(S) 34 and one BSP member, who has been expelled by the party for not voting for the Kumaraswamy government during the trust vote. “I have used my judicial conscience… I am 100 per cent hurt,” said the Speaker, when asked about his controversial decision on disqualification being called into question and allegations about his conduct in the entire issue. The Speaker’s sudden move also comes with indications from the BJP that it was mulling moving a no-confidence against him if he doesn’t voluntarily give up the post when the assembly meets on Monday. Kumar said he was taking the action based on the petitions moved by the Congress and JD(S) to disqualify the rebel MLAs, who had also submitted resignations as assembly members and were absent during the trust vote. The BJP slammed the Speaker’s action, calling it “unfair and violative of the law” which, it said, had been taken “yielding to the pressure from a party”. Congress Legislature Party leader Siddarmaiah, in a tweet, termed the Speaker’s decision as “a victory for democracy”. JD(S) too, in a tweet, welcoming the Speaker’s decision, said, “the Speaker has sent a strong message to those who tried to uproot democracy by disqualifying legislators who fell for allurements of power and money, disregarded public mandate and violated the party whip.” A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi in its order on Wednesday last gave the Assembly Speaker the freedom to decide on the resignation of the 15 MLAs within such time-frame as considered appropriate by him. It had also ruled that the rebel MLAs cannot be compelled to attend the assembly proceedings. A day ahead of seeking the trust vote in the Karnataka assembly, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Sunday expressed confidence about proving the majority. “On Monday hundred per cent I will prove the majority,” Yediyurappa told reporters here.last_img read more

States team up with phone companies to end illegal robocalls

first_img The FCC has adopted some policies to reduce the number of calls people get. The agency has changed rules to allow phone companies to block suspected robocalls by default, and it’s closed loopholes to go after illegal robocallers overseas. Congress has also stepped in to ensure the agency has what it needs to give its policies teeth. In May the Senate passed the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act with more than 80 co-sponsors. The bill is designed to improve enforcement policies, such as criminalizing illegal robocalling, and also improve coordination between agencies policing robocalls. It also requires phone companies to use the SHAKEN/STIR protocol.  Now playing: Watch this: How to stop robocalls Share your voice Comment Tags FCC 2:42 (From left) Attorneys General Leslie Rutledge of Arkansas, Josh Stein of North Carolina and Gordon MacDonald of New Hampshire join Patrick Halley, a senior vice president at US Telecom, at a press conference in Washington, DC, to unveil a new agreement with 12 phone companies to help stop illegal robocalls. Screenshot by Marguerite Reardon/CNET States are banding together with large telecom companies to combat robocalls. Twelve of the nation’s largest telephone companies struck an agreement Thursday with the attorneys general of all 50 states to help prevent and block robocalls. Under the agreement, the companies have promised to implement the SHAKEN/STIR technology, which would validate that calls are originating from where they claim to be coming from and would allow for faster tracing of illegal calls to find out who’s responsible for them, North Carolina State Attorney General Josh Stein said during a press conference announcing the agreement. The companies also promised to work with state law enforcement to investigate the origins of illegal robocalls, including confirming the identities of their commercial customers suspected of making such calls. The companies will also make free call-blocking technology available to consumers. ILLUSTRATION: Robocall Frustration Getty Images Stein said the partnership with the phone companies is just the beginning and isn’t a silver bullet in stopping these unwanted and annoying calls. “Thanks to these prevention principles, our phones will ring less often,” he said. “But unfortunately there will always be bad actors no matter how well we try to prevent these calls. Some will get through and that’s why enforcement is such a critical part of what we’re doing today.”Still, he said that “by shining a light on these robocallers, we will be able to aggressively enforce the law against the scofflaws and hold them accountable.”The agreement is voluntary, and there’s no deadline for compliance. Smaller phone companies haven’t yet signed on to the agreement. The larger carriers that’ve signed on say they’re committed to working with the states and federal government to end the scourge of illegal robocalls. “We’re in the midst of an ongoing battle with those responsible for sending annoying and often deceptive spam calls to our customers, and we’re determined to fight this battle,” Kathy Grillo, a senior vice president for government affairs at Verizon, said in a statement. “It’s imperative that we stand together on a common set of goals that include stopping callers from hiding their identities, working with other carriers on efforts to trace back illegal calls to the source, and keeping the originators from sending robocalls in the first place.”Americans received nearly 50 billion robocalls last year, according to a Federal Communications Commission report released in February. Nearly 50% of those calls were from scammers. The report also highlighted that the number of complaints about illegal robocalls has been increasing, jumping from 172,000 complaints in 2015 to 232,000 complaints in 2018.Robocalls use autodialers and recorded messages to make millions of phone calls. Often the numbers that show up in caller ID appear to belong to friends or neighbors, when they’re actually “spoofed.” These calls hide the real number to trick people into answering the call.FCC Chairman Ajit Pai applauded the phone companies for working with states to stop illegal robocalls, and he said the principles align with what the FCC has been doing.  “Few things can bring together policy leaders across the political spectrum like the fight against unwanted robocalls,” Pai said. ” I salute today’s bipartisan, nationwide effort to encourage best practices for combating robocalls and spoofing and am pleased that several voice service providers have agreed to abide by them.”  Mobile 1last_img read more

This 30 Device Can Break Into Almost Any Keyless Door in Your

first_img Listen Now August 10, 2015 This story originally appeared on Engadget You probably don’t think about thieves when you unlock your car, but Samy Kamkar certainly does. The security researcher known for his droll (and scary) hacks has created a device called “Rolljam” that cracks the wireless entry systems used by car- and garage-door makers. He demonstrated it at Defcon 2015, and here’s how it works. When a victim tries to remotely open their car with a fob, they’ll notice it didn’t work the first time. The second time will be the charm, but at that point, the thief will have stolen a code they can use to open your vehicle at their leisure.Car makers came up with “rolling code” after thieves figured out how to wirelessly steal codes from early keyless devices. The system works by changing the code every time you use a fob, preventing it from being used a second time. In theory, that makes any stolen code useless to an attacker. As with many of his hacks, Kamkar’s workaround is simple yet ingenious. Rolljam blocks the remote signal from reaching the vehicle with a pair of radios, then uses a third one to record the wireless code.Naturally, the mark will try to use the fob again, and once again, Rolljam will jam the signal and steal the second code. But this time, Kamkar’s device will re-transmit the first code and unlock the car, so the victim thinks everything’s alright. Since your vehicle didn’t receive the second code, however, it can now be used by Rolljam to unlock the vehicle anytime a thief wants. If the device is placed in proximity of a car or garage, it can keep stealing and retransmitting codes, ensuring it always has a fresh, working one.Other researchers have built devices that can hack vehicle locks in a similar way, but Kamkar is the first to automate the method. His prototype worked on vehicles from Nissan, Ford, Toyota, Volkswagen and others, along with numerous brands of garage door openers. Car companies are aware of the issue, and many have switched to a new system where the codes expire quickly, defeating Kamkar’s system. But he told Wired that he released details of his attack at Defcon to force car and garage companies to upgrade older products as well. “My own car is fully susceptible to this attack. I don’t think that’s right when we know this is solvable,” he said.

Read the rest of the story from our partners at NBC News Contact us at editors@timecomFor years the field of mental health has been largely barren of meaningful treatment advances But now scientists have new hope in the least likely of places: psychedelic drugs Recent research suggests that certain psychedelic substances can help relieve anxiety depression PTSD addiction and the fear surrounding a terminal diagnosis “The biggest misconception people have about psychedelics is that these are drugs that make you crazy” says Michael Pollan author of the new book How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness Dying Addiction Depression and Transcendence “We now have evidence that that does happen sometimes but in many more cases these are drugs that can make you sane” In the interview below (and video above) Pollan talked with TIME about the therapeutic promise of the drugs their fraught history and the sheer terror he felt after smoking toad venom Walk me through a brief history of psychedelics If you ask people about psychedelics or LSD they’re going to think about the psychedelic ’60s Timothy Leary this flamboyant psychology professor who was at Harvard for a few years studying psilocybin and LSD and then telling everybody they should take it in a very public way The drugs kind of escaped the laboratory and were embraced by the counterculture The result was a full-scale moral panic against the drugs President Nixon said Timothy Leary was the most dangerous man in America which is pretty amazing for a washed-up psychology professor But before that there had been more than a decade of very promising research using these drugs in a therapeutic context in a very responsible way What do psychedelics do to the human mind The honest answer: nobody quite understands We’re really just at the beginning of exploring that frontier But psychedelics appear to diminish activity in one very important brain network called the default mode network That network is very involved with operations having to do with our sense of self: how we integrate what’s happening to us in any given moment with our abiding sense of who we are The interesting thing about psychedelics both LSD and psilocybin the ingredient in magic mushrooms is that they take this network offline When that happens you have this sensation of ego-dissolution: that your self is evaporating or dissolving And that seems to lead to new connections in the brain temporarily forming Your emotion center starts talking directly to your visual cortex lets say and you see things that you’re hoping or fearing New connections are made that could produce new insights new perspectives new ways of looking at the world Your book talks a lot about the scientific approach to psychedelics What do scientists believe that psychedelics can offer people The feeling among the scientists is that these chemicals allow us to essentially reboot the brain If the brain is stuck in these narrow grooves of thought whether it’s an obsession or a fear or the story you tell yourself all those deep grooves that lock us into patterns of both thought and behavior are dissolved and temporarily suspended in a way that allows us to break those patterns What psychedelics do you think show some therapeutic potential There are two drugs that show the most potential and will probably be legalized for medical use soon One is a drug that isn’t always considered a psychedelic: MDMA also known as Ecstasy or Molly which has been shown to be incredibly useful in the treatment of trauma including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in soldiers or in rape victims A study recently came out that showed great effectiveness at treating those problems That’s very encouraging and that may be the first of these drugs to get approved The second is psilocybin It appears to be very useful in the treatment of anxiety depression and addiction in both smoking and alcohol MORE: I Took A Psychedelic Drug for My Cancer Anxiety It Changed My Life What happens to a person who has these mental health issues after they take a dose of psilocybin in clinical trials Well it’s important to remember that when psilocybin is used in a medical and healing context it’s very different than the recreational use of the drug This isn’t doctors giving you a pill and sending you out into the world For a period of four or five hours you are in a room that’s decorated like a cozy den or study You’re lying down on a couch you have eye shades on and headphones which are playing a very carefully curated playlist to make you go inside to have an internal experience And you’re with two guides at all times who are there looking out for your interests It’s an incredibly safe environment in which to let down your defenses and that’s essentially what happens All of our customary defenses that we use to deal with life and the world will be suspended for a period of time and that creates this opening this plastic moment where people can reexamine themselves and get some perspective on their habitual ways of thinking and doing Then you come out of this experience which can be very difficult for some people It’s not all fun and games Some people are put in touch with childhood traumas some people have encounters with death it can be very dark But with the help of the guides you use that material and try to understand it After the session you always come back the next day and have what’s called a period of integration where the guides who are trained therapists help you interpret what happened and figure out ways to put it to good use in changing your life How do some people change after taking psilocybin in clinical trials One of the big questions about this is: what endures from this experience One of the interesting studies they did when they crunched the data on the first groups of people who had had a guided psilocybin session was that these were adults but one of their personality traits that psychologists call openness openness to other people’s views openness to new experience openness to new ideas increased To find an actual measurable change in personality as adults is a very unusual finding Normally our personalities are fixed by the time we’re in our 20s But here was a very positive aspect of personality that could change and did change You tried various psychedelics for the book Tell me about your best journey What did it feel like My best was a fairly high-dose psilocybin journey that I had with a guide a woman in her 50s who was a very skilled therapist and who worked in other modalities as well I had to work with someone illicitly and I learned that there is a thriving underground of psychedelic therapists These are serious professionals but they are doing something illegal What was stunning about it was I had an experience of complete ego-dissolution I reached a point where my “self” just kind of fell apart into these little pieces of paper I saw myself get scattered to the wind but I was all right with it I didn’t have any urge to stack the papers back up together Then I looked out; I saw myself spread over the landscape as a coat of paint And I was fine with it The consciousness that was perceiving all of this was not my usual ego It wasn’t upset or defensive or trying to do anything It was dispassionate objective And I learned a really important lesson in that moment which is that I’m not identical to my ego My ego is one of a couple of characters in my mind and not always the best The ego is very important the ego got the book written But it’s also what punishes us what keeps us locked in our grooves of thought and it’s what defends us against the world and against our own consciousness What was your worst journey My worst journey was on this psychedelic called 5-MeO-DMT which is the venom of the Sonoran Desert Toad Apparently you can milk the toad repeatedly and kind of squeeze the glands on its side or its arm onto a sheet of glass It dries overnight and looks like brown sugar crystals Then you smoke it and it’s instantaneous Before I even exhaled I felt like I’d been shot out of a rocket I had not only the experience of ego-dissolution but the dissolution of everything: of my body of any kind of perceiving consciousness of material reality It was all gone It was just a pure Category 5 storm of energy and I didn’t know where I was in it I felt like I was in the middle of an atomic blast or in a world before the Big Bang when there was only energy and not yet matter These are metaphors that don’t begin to capture how horrifying it was I thought this could be death this could be what it’s like to leave your body because I had lost my body The best thing about this trip is it only lasted about 15 minutes After a period of time I felt a perceiving “I” kind of come back And then I could feel my body I was like wow This is so great I have a body and then there’s a floor And there’s stuff that’s back matter is back I ended with this incredible feeling of gratitude such as I’d never felt not just for my own existence not just for life but for anything that anything exists that there is something rather than nothing So I guess that’s a valuable takeaway but I had to go a long way to have it And I wouldn’t wish that experience on anybody Did you feel your personality changed after trying these drugs I kind of feel like I went back to baseline My wife thinks it’s changed in some ways Not in a profound way but I think she would say that I’m more open and more patient that I deal with emotional situations with a little more availability I think she may well be right Simply spending this much time observing my mind and having experiences where I got to sneak up on it in various ways does have an effect It’s the same effect that 10 years of psychoanalysis probably would have although it didn’t take me nearly that long How do psychedelics bring together the worlds of science and spirituality We often think about science and spirituality as these opposed terms but in fact a lot of this research is forcing scientists to deal with spiritual questions and some spiritual people to deal with scientific questions which is very exciting The very first study in the modern era of psychedelic research of any importance was a 2006 study done at Johns Hopkins by a scientist named Roland Griffiths a very prominent drug-abuse scientist He found that what the psychedelics did in about 80% of cases was induce a mystical experience which is a spiritual experience that was studied closely by William James 100 years ago It has various aspects to it Prominent among them is this dissolving of a sense of self but that is followed by a merging with the universe or with nature or other people Its called the noetic sense this sense that what you’re seeing or feeling or learning on this experience has the status of revealed truth It’s not just an opinion it’s objectively true We see this experience all over religious literature: people who have had an experience of meeting with the divine These traits are common and the fact that you could induce such a spiritual experience with a single administration of a drug was quite remarkable These people reported that this experience was one of the top two or three in their lives comparable to the birth of a child or the death of a parent Now that we can actually induce a spiritual experience using a drug we can study the phenomenon How has the experience of writing this book changed your mind about death It made me more curious and a little less afraid I wouldn’t say it eliminated my fear and I wasn’t trying to do that but I was able to kind of look at it with this equanimity On this psilocybin trip I saw the faces of people close to me who had died over the last few years You understand why traditional cultures would take plant medicines to reconnect with the dead You can see them and talk to them and they can talk to you I’m not saying this is a supernatural phenomenon It’s a psychological phenomenon at least that’s how I understand it It made people who were gone more present in my life and I’m happy for that I wrote this book during a period when my dad was dying He had terminal cancer and I dedicated this book to him before he died One of the things the psilocybin research is doing is helping open that conversation to make people more comfortable talking about it to get patients to actually deal with it Oncologists don’t do a very good job of that and we have very little for the treatment of the psychology of people who are dying So a drug that takes you into these spiritual realms where you can begin to think it through seems to me an enormous gift What role are psychedelic drugs going to play in your life going forward I don’t know if they’ll play any role moving forward I had the experiences I needed to have I met people who have a psychedelic experience once a year on their birthday and that seemed about right to do that sort of stock-taking But the drugs are illegal and now I’m out talking about it publicly so that option

Kypros/Getty Images 1983 Bob Maxwell. tap-to-pay functionality, The company did that with the help of a Russian American psychologist at Cambridge University Aleksandr Kogan who also made regular visits back to Russia according to WylieWylie said he and others at Cambridge Analytica were initially skeptical of the power of this tactic for gathering data But when the company approved $1000 for Kogan to experiment with his app he produced data on 1000 people who downloaded it and roughly 160000 of their friends – all in a matter of hoursCambridge Analytica next approved $10000 for a second round of testing and was rewarded with nearly a million records including names home towns dates of birth religious affiliations work and educational histories and preferences as expressed using the popular Facebook "like" button on many social media updates news stories and other online postsThey soon married that data with voter lists and commercial data broker information and discovered they had a remarkably precise portrait of a large swath of the American electorateKogan’s app called "thisisyourdigitallife" and portrayed as being for research purposes gathered data on the 270000 people who downloaded it and tens of millions of their Facebook friends It was this data and others that Wylie later worried might have ended up in Russian hands"I’m not saying that we put it on a drive and posted it to Vladimir Putin on Number 1 Red Square" Wylie said referring to the Russian president’s official residence But he said that he and others affiliated with Cambridge Analytica briefed Lukoil a Russian oil company on its research into American voters He said Kogan also made regular visits to Russia but acknowledged that he did not know what Kogan did thereKogan has not replied to The Post’s requests for comment Kogan called the suggestions that he was a spy "just silly" in an email seen by CNN that he wrote to colleagues at Cambridge University "If I am Russian spy I am the world’s dumbest spy"For Wylie a data scientist with an avid interest in politics and culture the collection of Facebook and other data did not initially trouble him The social media platform made such data grabs easy for app developers – though it began severely restricting them in 2015 – and Wylie saw it as a powerful way to study an entire nation on a scale at once broad and preciseCombined with other data Cambridge Analytica hoped to profile the entire American electorate – something it already had done in other countries – and determine what pitches would work best for each individual voterThe project also appeared to excite its benefactors One former Cambridge Analytica employee speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal corporate matters described hearing Rebekah Mercer express over the phone excitement at the results of 2014 congressional midterms when Republicans made significant gains to which Cambrige Analytica said it had contributedBut Wylie and others clashed with Nix whom he called a "bully" Wylie also grew weary of the increasingly far-right tenor of the politics the researchers were helping to propel They discovered and refined potent themes about keeping out immigrants "draining the swamp" and restoring an earlier era of national greatness – as understood mainly to mean for white American menWhen Wylie told Nix at a London coffee shop in 2014 that he was going to leave at the end of the year he heard a boast that at the time sounded ridiculous but in retrospect haunted him"Just you wait" Nix told Wylie according to his recollection "You’re going to leave but we’re going to be in the White House"But it was not clear to Wylie at that point who might lead such an eventual White House bid In fact Cambridge Analytica worked with Sen Ted Cruz R-Texas during the presidential primary before signing on with the Trump campaignMonths after he and several other Cambridge Analytica employees quit the firm they got a mysterious message from somebody purporting to represent the Trump Organization Wylie and others unfamiliar with Trump’s brewing political ambitions thought they might find themselves somehow involved in Trump’s "Apprentice" reality television showWylie said he ended up speaking with Lewandowski Trump’s first campaign manager in conference calls in which Lewandowski reportedly described a forthcoming Trump run for presidentLewandowski later met in person with several of Wylie’s former Cambridge Analytica colleagues at Trump Tower in spring 2015 Wylie said in an account backed by one of those people who did attend But the plan to work for the campaign doing voter analysis fizzled in large part because the mostly liberal former Cambridge Analytica employees didn’t want to wade back into conservative politicsLewandowski said the campaign had been pitched by Cambridge Analytica but never hired them and had no recollection of meeting with any former employees "I’ve never heard of those guys" Lewandowski said of Wylie and the other former employees "It didn’t happen"But the brief flirtation did have a concrete consequence SCL Group threatened legal action against Wylie for supposedly violating a "noncompete" clause he signed before quitting Wylie was confused – he had no idea that the company considered Trump a client or potential client – and began to suspect that he had been set up To resolve the legal dispute he signed a nondisclosure agreement that would later complicate his efforts to speak out about the work he had done for Cambridge AnalyticaWylie’s sense of uneasiness about that work began building when he heard Trump in 2016 start using themes that Cambridge Analytica had developed in 2014 about building walls and draining the swamp More than most Wylie knew the science behind why they might be effective His discomfort grew when Bannon formally joined the Trump campaign in August 2016Election results on Nov 8 2016 filled Wylie with a profound sense of dread A friend who worked on the campaign of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and was familiar with Wylie’s previous work sent him a message saying "What did you do""Manipulating an election in a small developing country doesn’t have the same sort of ripple effect of electing Donald Trump into the White House" Wylie said "It hit home at the inauguration" It is unclear how much Cambridge Analytica contributed to Trump’s winSoon after Trump’s inauguration Wylie began talking with Observer of London reporter Carole Cadwalladr who had been working on stories about Cambridge Analytica He also retained an attorney Tamsin Allen and began working directly with Britain’s Information Commissioner’s Office which started an investigation into Cambridge AnalyticaEarlier this month Wylie received a sharply worded letter from Facebook which demanded access to his smartphone and computer He refused saying that he already had shared information with the British authorities and saw no reason to do so with a private company – especially one whose own activities might be called into questionIt was not Wylie’s first encounter with Facebook The company had sent a letter in August 2016 saying that Kogan the Cambridge researcher should not have shared the data of Facebook users Downloading names home towns work histories and "likes" of 50 million users was not against the rules – at least in 2014 – but Kogan should not have transferred the data to Cambridge Analytica Facebook wrote Facebook wanted the data destroyedWylie said he complied with that request though he does not know if Kogan or Cambridge Analytica did (Cambridge Analytica has issued several statements in recent days denying any wrongdoing)Silicon Valley-based Facebook posted a blog Friday evening – early Saturday morning in London – announcing the suspension of Kogan Wylie and the parent company of Cambridge AnalyticaWhen he was awakened by a call around 3 am from a reporter Wylie was furious at Facebook for acting unilaterally and accusing him of misdeeds when he had come forward to authorities Days later he still isWylie’s career as Facebook critic quickly moved to a new level Lawmakers in the United States and Europe began demanding that Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg personally explain how the data of 50 million users reached a mysterious company with ties to Bannon the Mercers and Trump State attorneys general began investigating So did the Federal Trade Commission over concerns that Facebook had violated a 2011 consent decree over privacy issuesWhen told that Wylie thought he had been mistreated by Facebook the social media company responded that Cambridge Analytica and Kogan had agreed to an audit of their servers and systems "Mr Wylie thus far has declined" Facebook on Wednesday said it would conduct audits of thousands of apps in response to the "breach of trust" caused by Cambridge Analytica"Facebook is not the government Facebook is not the state I’m working with the legal authority" Wylie said referring to the Information Commissioner’s Office "I’m not going to be bullied by Facebook"As for the broader issues – the privacy intrusions of the data collection the manipulation of voters the possible role in electing Trump the possibility that Cambridge Analytica’s work might have reached Russians – Wylie feels remorseWylie says he wants to expose the machinations of data gathering for political purposes as fully as he’s able He dreams of resuming his work as a data scientist some day For now he is something like a full-time whistleblowerIn an emotional moment on Tuesday night at the Frontline Club a journalists’ club in London Wylie told a packed audience said that his decision to step forward was about taking responsibility"If you’ve done something wrong the first step is to try to own up and tell people about it" he said "I’m on my first step"The female child was taken Wednesday evening to Sanford Hospital in Thief River Falls before
