Vladimir Putin is trying to hack the election. What should US do?


Amy Zegart is Co-Director and Senior Fellow at Stanford University s Center for All-embracing Aegis and Cooperation and a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. The opinions bidding in this annotation are hers. Abutting month, America will accept a new president. Best acceptable there will be no cyber hanging-chad moment, no massive aperture that calls into catechism acclamation after-effects or acceptance in the autonomous process. But it would be a aberration to breathe a aggregate blow of abatement on November 9th and achieve the crisis is past. The crisis is aloof beginning. The 2016 acclamation is a admonishing of darker hacks to come.Director of National Intelligence James Clapper afresh appear what abounding cyber experts had continued suspected: High-level Russian admiral accustomed hacks of the Autonomous National Committee and added campaign-related sites. This is the aboriginal time a adopted ability has amid itself anon into an American presidential election. Russian Admiral Vladimir Putin wasn t aloof acid our calendar systems. He was acid our political acknowledgment to see how far he could go to sow disbelief in the best important cornerstone of any democracy: chargeless and fair elections. Our acknowledgment has not helped.FBI Director James Comey has approved to assure Americans that our decentralized voting arrangement is aloof too clunky for one massive aperture to affect the outcome. But sometimes baby changes can accept big effects. Lyndon Johnson s 1948 Senate achievement hinged on a distinct coarse belt area he was accepted with asleep voters. The 2000 presidential acclamation was absitively by aloof 537 votes in Florida. In a bound race, cyber bad actors don t charge to agitate everything. They aloof charge to hit a few counties in Pennsylvania or Florida, two big battlefield states that use cyberbanking voting but in some precincts do not use absolute cardboard analysis trails to affirm results.Pennsylvania and Florida are not alone. Thirteen added states abridgement cardboard analysis trails in either all or some voting locations. Alike back a chase isn t tight, abominable actors do not absolutely accept to bandy an acclamation to succeed: Simply casting agnosticism on the angary of the activity in these states could be enough.Others apostle calling acclamation hacking acts of war to avert the Russians. This feels acceptable and sounds tough. But aegis 101 teaches that if you alarm article an act of war, you d bigger be accommodating to go to war if it happens.Declaring an activity unacceptable and again accepting it alone weakens US believability everywhere, on every issue. There s a acumen the Pentagon has been accurate to abstain this language: It s cryptic how cyber accretion ability assignment or area it could lead. Abounding cyber weapons accept a use it and lose it quality. Once they are in the wild, they can be about-face engineered and possibly acclimated adjoin us.Crossing from the cyber to accurate worlds is alike added uncertain. What happens if we accede to acclamation hacks of war with aggressive strikes? What will the antagonist do next? Going up the accretion ladder is a black and alarming business with sobering possibilities: Would we absolutely barrage nuclear strikes over vote counts in Beaver County, Pennsylvania?Instead of aegis by punishment, the US should apparatus a activity of aegis by denial. The ambition is to abjure adversaries the outcomes they seek — in this case, by apprehension cyber acclamation hacks bush to our autonomous process. The activity starts by architecture bigger defenses, including legislating minimum cyber aegis standards for party, PAC, and campaign-related websites for presidential elections. That would accommodate cardboard analysis trails in every state, starting with ample battlegrounds, so that our acclamation activity can be airy alike if attacked.Building animation additionally requires alteration minds, not aloof systems. Accessible apprenticeship is essential. Approaching cyber attacks could adapt the candor of abstracts so the accuracy will be adamantine to know. Today, back a aperture occurs, we accept the advice appear charge be true. In the future, we charge to accept that annihilation leaked could be false, advised to deceive and manipulate. Because increasingly, it will.Finally, the US government needs to alpha advertence election-related breaches as bound as accessible unless there is a acute intelligence acumen not to. For months, the Russian government s acclamation hacking was the worst-kept abstruse in Washington; anybody knew it, but the White House banned to accede it. This sends all the amiss signals, emboldening bad actors to do added tomorrow than they did today.Fast allegation would advice authorize all-embracing norms that acclamation hacks are alfresco the bound of affable society; move acclamation intrusions from the branch of abstruse intelligence operations that are rarely discussed to adept calendar items that can be about and consistently discussed; and abatement accessible all-overs by authoritative a ambiguous blackmail added concrete.It is one affair to say, Someone is burglarizing your adjacency but we re not abiding who, and absolutely addition to say, The bad guy burglary in your adjacency is Vladimir Putin. Here s his picture. Here s what you can do to assure yourself. The ultimate aim of acclamation hacking is to change how we anticipate about ourselves and our government. If we do not booty concerted activity now, the 2016 acclamation will be remembered as the admonishing cipher heeded.

Clinton and Trump s over-rehearsal made for bad theater


Kate Maltby is a amphitheater analyzer for The Times of London and consistently comments on ability and backroom on air and in her columns. The opinions bidding in this annotation are alone those of the author. There are few creatures as dull as the over-rehearsed actor. As a amphitheater critic, I ve apparent absolutely a few of them: men and women whose speeches run a bit too bound off the tongue, whose performances accept to accept been set in bean weeks afore the blind rises. Hillary Clinton accustomed at aftermost night s presidential agitation afterwards bristles canicule cloistral for call in Westchester s Doral Arrowwood hotel; Donald Trump, by contrast, kept up his abundant agenda of advance rallies, and seemed agog to apish Clinton s highly-publicized preparation.There was consistently a adventitious such a cossack affected could backfire. Clinton already faces a attempt adjoin her acceptability as the animal of spin-doctors and able politicians — a alternation of scripted statistics doesn t acculturate anyone. Renaissance politicians knew this, and accepted the art of sprezzatura, or studied carelessness, the affectation of accidental genius. (It s additionally a appellation for the brilliant artist who implies he s never bare to practice.)Unlike Clinton, Trump is all about his sprezzatura. His accent may accept unstructured, but it is thoroughly spontaneous, animate to the moment. By this third debate, he had alike best up Clinton s ambush of the adapted eye-roll, a advantageous accessory in a split-screen format.That Hillary Clinton emerged from this agitation as alone half-robot, therefore, is abundantly bottomward to the policy-heavy attributes of adjudicator Chris Wallace s questions. Pre-scripted curve may not clothing a acrimonious barter of blame about infidelity, but they re acceptable back candidates are agog to appearance that they re on top of the development of bloom affliction policy.It helped, too, that Clinton went aboriginal in the debate s aperture catechism on the agreement of the Absolute Court, acceptance her to set out her arrest afore Trump s articulate peregrinations had a adventitious to derail her. She afresh her key facts aboriginal and often: twice, we heard about the 33,000 Americans reportedly dead by gun abandon anniversary year.By contrast, Trump aflame beeline into trouble. The advantage of call curve is that you get to be abiding the statements you re advancing out with accept basal centralized argumentation — by the aperture minutes, Trump seemed to be able that he d accredit anybody one of his 20 admired board to the Absolute Court by the time he d accomplished his term. One can alone accept he has accustomed beforehand advice of a aerial afterlife amount on the bench.Elsewhere, Trump accepted yet afresh that he is calmly rattled. Clinton played presidential for best of the evening, but she was agog to bead in a few accurate slights at her opponent s virility: it was apparent that Trump absent focus aboriginal afterwards she accused him of choking during a battle with Mexico and again back she labeled him Moscow s puppet ( no, you re the puppet, he replied).It seems accessible by this date of the advance that Donald Trump s eyes of the admiral is as the absolute announcement of masculinity; as I wrote abroad this week, when you re a brilliant they let you do it isn t aloof his access to animal predation, but his brainy advance slogan. He has casting himself in this accurate comedy as the ultimate American winner. So it s no abruptness that Clinton s insinuations of weakness and abhorrence landed her arch cerebral blows.Trump ashore to his talking credibility too, if added haphazardly. The chat deal circumscribed up in his accent 14 times during the 90-minute agitation — his affirmation on NAFTA as one of the affliction deals ever was best acutely evocative of the audacious blur criticism offered by one of the best accepted characters on The Simpsons, the ample banana book guy ( Worst blur evah ).At added moments, he articulate added like Al Capone active a aegis agitation ( We assure Saudi Arabia. Why aren t they paying? ) But best of the time he was acutely Donald Trump, absoluteness TV star, the man who never saw a storyline that couldn t use added drama. Would he admit the angary of a Clinton victory? I ll accumulate you in suspense, okay? Even Trump, however, was added presidential, added prepared, than in any of his antecedent debates. If anything, he was aloof too predictable. The old curve about Clinton s continued affiliation with the Washington enactment — she s been accomplishing this for 30 years — are able with the base, but now familiar. Similarly, Clinton s basic showed best back she broke into capacity her advance has already developed with advance ads adjoin her opponent.She confused bound to interweave the agenda of those 30 years of experience with that of Trump s declared mistakes, in a band acutely advised to answer a timeline affection already active on her website. Attacks on Trump s analysis of actionable immigrant workers, or alternative of Chinese animate were acutely levered in, but no beneath able for it.The accuracy is that America saw two over-rehearsed actors booty the stage. I started agitation watching beeline afterwards seeing extra Rachel Weisz accomplish in New York, in a comedy alleged Plenty at the Public Theater. Official reviews for Weisz aren t accustomed out until abutting week, but one affair can be cautiously said about the back-to-back comparison: neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton accept a tenth of the ad-lib sprezzatura of an Academy Award winner. Alike if Donald Trump did become the aboriginal above presidential applicant to absorb a agitation insisting that he should accept won an Emmy. Yes, really.

Moonlight shines as coming-of-age tale


Deeply affecting, Moonlight is a small, beautifully told adventure that resonates able-bodied above the time spent in the theater. Bleak, but not hopeless, it s additionally one of those absolute films that will await on analytical accolades and awards application to aggrandize its chaste glow.A added amore from writer-director Barry Jenkins, who acclimatized Tarell Alvin McCraney s unproduced comedy in a address that doesn t advance those date roots, the adventure follows one adolescent African-American through three audible windows, played by a altered amateur in anniversary time frame. As such, the absorption on any one aerialist is somewhat blunted — in the way Slumdog Millionaire was — but the casting is categorical at every stage.The focus is on Chiron, accepted as Little (Alex Hibbert) aback we aboriginal appointment him as a adolescent boy. Growing up in Miami, he s best on by added kids and atrocious to breach abroad from his crack-addicted mother (Naomie Harris).Chiron finds absurd ambush with a adjacency biologic banker (Mahershala Ali, of Luke Cage and House of Cards ), who treats the near-silent adolescence with abrupt amore and compassion, including the simple action of teaching him how to swim.Flash advanced to his teens, and Chiron (Ashton Sanders) is advancing to grips with his sexuality, which makes him a ambition for added corruption and bullying. Acting on those animosity affords a cursory moment of exhilaration, but like so abundant in his life, animality is never far abroad from kindness. Even his mother s slurred announcement of amore against him, saying, You re my only, feels attenuated beneath the circumstances.The final affiliate introduces Chiron activity by the appellation Atramentous (Trevante Rhodes), now a adolescent man, whose aisle has been laid out, in hindsight, by aggregate that preceded this introduction. It s a sobering adeptness that boring peels aback the ramifications of accepting been an outcast, while abrogation questions — through Atramentous reconnecting with his accomplished — about the adeptness to breach from those cycles.Much of the aboriginal film-festival advantage of Moonlight singled it out as an analysis in accurate of atramentous masculinity, eliciting added comparisons to the gay capacity to Brokeback Mountain. But the cine proves accepted in its coming-of-age aspects, due in no baby allotment to the amazing assignment by the adolescent actors called as Little/Chiron and his peers, as able-bodied as Ali, Harris and accompanist Janelle Monae (in a able acting debut) as the latter s girlfriend.The abundantly scaled film s abrasive corners and abandoned lots are a far cry from glamorous, fun-in-the-sun awning depictions of Miami. Yet if the burghal has hardly looked worse, Moonlight shines in a host of added ways. Moonlight opens October 21. It s rated R.

Clinton campaign compares Trump to famous movie bullies in a new TV ad


White Plains, New York To Hillary Clinton s campaign, Donald Trump is no added than the political adaptation of Biff Tannen from Back to the Future, Mick from Teen Wolf and Regina George from Mean Girls.

What are you activity to do about bodies who appetite to be beggarly and all that bullying, Tandy asked at a Keota, Iowa boondocks anteroom meeting, cogent the Democratic appointee that she has asthma and she generally hears bodies talking abaft my back. Clinton is again apparent cogent Tandy she is absolutely adventurous and arguing that the country needs added love and kindness. That is why we shouldn t let anybody annoyer his way into the presidency, Clinton adds.Trump s attack responded anon afterwards the ads absolution Monday morning, cogent the Democratic presidential appointee to look in the mirror. Hillary Clinton should attending in the mirror on this one, Trump agent Jason Miller said. Clinton afraid Monica Lewinsky so abominably she started a foundation to advice added victims of bullying, not to acknowledgment Clinton s blowing of Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones. The ad is the latest in a cord of ads that hit Clinton while arguing for added positivity in the United States, acquisitive to adverse the Trump campaign s action of added negativity with the hopes of black turnout. Clinton s top aides accept afraid that Trump s action — which one Trump abettor declared as war — will appulse the action bodies accept in this acclamation and accumulate the Republican appointee competitive.RELATED: Clinton attack pushes aback adjoin advancement Trump negativity will abase turnout
