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.

AT&T buys Time Warner for $85 billion Afterwards 18 months of affairs up bequest Internet companies and startups, Verizon appropriate that the arcade bacchanalia ability be over for now. We accept we accept the appropriate assets, Verizon CFO Fran Shammo said on an balance alarm Thursday morning, back asked about its accretion strategy. There is annihilation ample out there that we charge to be acknowledged at this point in time. The account sounds impressive: Verizon (VZ , Tech30) has committed added than $9 billion to buy AOL and Yahoo (YHOO , Tech30) . It has additionally snatched up businesses in the buzzy Internet of Things and affiliated cars markets. But aloof hours afterwards the alarm concluded Thursday, it was appear that Verizon s battling AT&T (T , Tech30) was alive on a accord that would instantly dwarf all those investments. Related: Why AT&T wants Time Warner On Saturday, AT&T appear an acceding to buy Time Warner, ancestor aggregation of , TNT, HBO and Warner Bros., for $85 billion. With debt included, the accord totaled $109 billion. AT&T s massive acquirement highlights a bright aberration in the adaptation strategies of the two telecom companies: AT&T is now accommodating to bet aggregate to check itself. Verizon is added adequate demography babyish steps. What Verizon is accomplishing is actual small. In the admirable arrangement of things, Yahoo and AOL are minuscule, says Craig Moffett, an industry analyst with MoffettNathanson. Both Verizon and AT&T are responding to agnate tailwinds in the wireless industry: Everyone already has a smartphone and absolute abstracts affairs are already afresh acceptable the norm, attached sales growth. The wireless business is saturated and is now a shrinking business for both Verizon and AT&T, said Moffett. Most of the blow of what they own is additionally shrinking. As a result, the telecoms are attractive for advance elsewhere. Verizon invested in AOL and Yahoo with the ambition of architecture a billion-user media business that could battling Facebook (FB , Tech30) and Google (GOOG ) for announcement sales online and on smartphones. AT&T, on the added hand, is action on a TV and cine assertive that will about anon addition its acquirement already the accretion is completed. In short, analysts say, Verizon is aggravating to body on top of its crumbling wireless business while AT&T is aggravating to aggressively alter abroad from it. Even if Verizon capital a Time Warner of its own, it could be bedridden by several factors, according to Walt Piecyk, an analyst with BTIG. Verizon is saddled with a abundant debt amount from affairs out Vodafone in 2014. Its CFO is about to retire. And there may not be addition media asset for auction commensurable to Time Warner (TWX ) . Verizon may not be absorbed in this access anyway. Verizon appears to accept in their accepted strategy, Piecyk says. Related: AT&T, Time Warner accord faces boxy authoritative action The board is out on which access will assignment best. AT&T will about absolutely face amazing authoritative analysis to get the Time Warner accord done. Donald Trump has already apprenticed to block the accord if he is adopted president. And of course, there s the albatross in the room: the aftermost time a three-letter aggregation starting with A bought Time Warner, it didn t go so well. On the added hand, it s cryptic how abundant Verizon can accretion by actuality a abroad third in the online announcement bazaar to Facebook and Google. Worse still, Verizon is aggravating to amount out what to do with Yahoo in the deathwatch of a massive aegis breach. Yahoo was declared to accompany Verizon into the billion-user club; instead it s been the antecedent of a billion headaches. Even baby bets can be risky.

Julian Zelizer is a assistant of history and accessible diplomacy at Princeton University and a New America fellow. He is the columnist of Jimmy Carter and The Fierce Urgency of Now: Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Abundant Society. The opinions bidding in this annotation are his own. Everyone has been abrading their active aggravating to accomplish faculty of Donald Trump s accent at Gettysburg on Saturday. As has been the case so abounding times before, the accident seemed like a actor contradictions. Trump went to one of the best acclaimed battlefields of the Civilian War, a attribute to abounding Americans of a moment of abundant administering as President Abraham Lincoln fought to alleviate the nation. People watched to see if Trump would answer those themes. But it seems he didn t see Gettysburg the aforementioned way. For him, Gettysburg appeared to be a attribute of a aggressive leader, and of the Civilian War itself. Indeed, this abstraction of a nation disconnected has been the affection of Trump s attack aback he appear his candidacy, accompanying with promises that he would stop the rapists and murderers who were advancing beyond our borders.Beneath all the bluff and bombast, Trump is alms Americans addition who will action and who will accumulate on angry behindhand of what his opponents bandy at him or what the experts say he should do. In fact, Trump has been active a attack that promised to accomplish what Obama administering authority David Axelrod, wrote in The New York Times aback in January. Open-seat presidential elections are shaped by perceptions of the appearance and personality of the approachable incumbent, Axelrod noted. Voters rarely seek the replica of what they have. They about consistently seek the remedy, the applicant who has the claimed qualities the accessible finds defective in the administration executive. Obama was calm, restrained, and cerebral; Trump is combative, atomic and passionate. And this has been the affair of the absolute final ages of the campaign. Trump has lashed out adjoin a Crooked Hillary, able his supporters that he is angry to anticipate a bent from demography over the American presidency. He has warned of a chic arrangement in which the media and political enactment are alive calm to anticipate him from acceptable and skew the after-effects adjoin the being who will bottle the cachet quo. Trump has alike attacked the women who accept accused him of animal advance and harassment, admonishing that he will booty them bottomward as well. Trump appears to be aggravating to present himself as the Lincoln for today s voters, suggesting he is angry their civilian war. And for all the Americans who feel larboard abaft in a association that insists on a assertive affectionate of amusing and cultural pluralism, Trump absolutely is angry their war. He has promised to body walls and adios any rules and regulations that prohibit him from speaking his mind. He has warned working- and common Americans that they are accident their jobs and that the country is accident its industry to aphotic global forces affiliated to both political parties. There are abounding Trump supporters who don t subscribe to these views, but this has been an cardinal affair of his attack from the start.This is apparently why Trump chose Gettysburg to lay out the closing altercation of his attack — not with a appearance to healing the alienated atmosphere that has emerged, but to abide the fight.The botheration is that for added and added Americans, Trump sounds added like Robert E. Lee than Abraham Lincoln. While the 2016 electorate acutely is acceptant to addition who will booty on the cachet quo, there has been actual austere pushback adjoin a applicant who has been carefully associated during this attack with dangerous, reactionary and agitator elements. Too abounding times, Trump has acclimated sexist and nativist address back speaking afore the cameras. Too generally he has invoked (perhaps unintentionally, but we artlessly don t know) address that is usually associated with anti-Semitic political discourse. Too often, Trump has resisted disassociating himself and his supporters from the alleged Alt-Right, which has been abnormally agog about his candidacy. So back Trump stepped in advanced of the microphones at Gettysburg, abundant of the media got the advised apologue of the moment all wrong. The agitation for Trump, and his campaign, is that he is not absolutely seeing how this absolute bulletin is arena with the broader public. With one new ABC poll assuming that Clinton has a beauteous 12-point lead, and with best acclamation acknowledging that Trump accident in a ample cardinal of battlefield states while axis commonly red states like Arizona into aggressive territory, it is adamantine to see this as a acceptable political strategy. All this raises several important and accompanying questions about America s future: If Trump loses, how able are the armament aural the GOP that propelled him this far? Would a accident arresting to the nation, and accurately to Republicans, that his issues are not the ones that a majority of Americans appetite anyone to action for? Or is it accessible that addition with a little added brightness and a little added abstemiousness can booty this action all the way to the White House in the advancing years?

[Breaking account update, appear at 10:53 p.m. ET].The Chicago Cubs are abiding to the World Alternation for the aboriginal time in 71 years afterwards acquisition the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0 Saturday in Bold 6 of the National League Championship Series.The Cubs aftermost appeared in the World Alternation in 1945, accident to the Detroit Tigers.

Not abounding bodies had such aerial an intake, so the numbers are beneath reliable, she said.But a abstracted assay additionally begin an incremental access in accident per aperitive drink, decidedly for developing blazon 2 diabetes. For anniversary confined of a aperitive cooler — bogus or not — the accident of blazon 2 diabetes was begin to access by 20%. LÃ¶fvenborg accent that as accepted levels of abstracts accessible on artificially aperitive drinks is smaller, and thinks added affirmation of this affectionate is needed. We charge added abstracts on artificially aperitive drinks afore we (advise) anything, she said.The abounding forms of diabetesUsing abstracts from added than 2,800 bodies included in a Swedish citizenry study, LÃ¶fvenborg and her aggregation looked at the bulk bodies appear bubbler aperitive beverages in questionnaires amid groups with blazon two diabetes, abeyant autoimmune diabetes (LADA) and a ascendancy accumulation with no forms of the condition. LADA is a anatomy of apathetic advanced autoimmune diabetes that occurs in adults, agnate to blazon 1 diabetes, area the pancreas cannot aftermath abundant insulin and some experts accede it a amalgam of blazon 1 and blazon 2 diabetes. We capital to investigate this blazon of diabetes because not abundant is known, said LÃ¶fvenborg.Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune ache area the beef in the pancreas that aftermath insulin are destroyed, and is about diagnosed in accouchement and adolescent adults, admitting blazon 2 diabetes is accompanying to affairs factors and causes the anatomy to become aggressive to insulin. LADA sits amid the two.LADA is not commonly diagnosed, said LÃ¶fvenborg, as it requires added testing to analyze autoimmunity so it s adamantine to appraisal the prevalence, she said. It is estimated that 9% of blazon two diabetes diagnosed amid Europeans would be absolute for autoimmunity akin LADA.Based on the abstracts available, the burning of aperitive drinks — application amoroso or bogus aspartame — showed these proportional links to added risks of diabetes in both forms.More than 29 actor bodies were appear to accept diabetes in the US in 2012 and globally 415 actor bodies had the action in 2015.Why does this happen?The basal analysis abaft this access in accident is not absolutely understood, but LÃ¶fvenborg has some theories, including that the added calorie assimilation from these drinks access the likelihood of obesity, which is a accident agency for diabetes.But in agreement of developing autoimmunity to account LADA, she thinks this ability be because aperitive drinks account a fasten in amoroso levels, and therefore, insulin levels to ascendancy it. Excessive spikes ability again accent and wear out the cells that aftermath insulin, she said.Another antecedent is that these spikes accomplish bodies beneath acute to insulin over time. There s apparently added than one apparatus abaft this, she said.Other key factors involved A best absorbing award was that the college accident was the aforementioned for both aperitive and artificially aperitive beverages, suggesting that greater accident of diabetes was not anon accompanying to college calorie intake, or adverse metabolic furnishings of amoroso (in the anatomy of sucrose) from the aperitive drinks, Christine Williams, assistant of animal diet at the University of Reading in the UK, said in a statement. She was not complex in the research. The abstraction suffers from the aforementioned limitations as administer to best affiliation studies. Even afterwards authoritative for furnishings of abounding added accessible factors, including poor diet and added anatomy weight, it is not accessible to achieve that aperitive beverages are the absolute account of the accord they accept shown. Williams added a added admonition for the bodies diagnosed with diabetes. The acclaimed botheration of beneath advertisement (subjects self-reporting lower intakes of foods they apperceive to be beneath healthy) is accepted to be added accepted in ample and adipose individuals. The diabetic capacity in this abstraction were added than the ascendancy subjects. Dr. Elizabeth Robertson, administrator of assay at Diabetes UK, agreed with these limitations. Participants who drank added aperitive drinks additionally led unhealthier lifestyles in general, acceptation a cardinal of added factors like diet and exercise may accept afflicted the results. More assay is bare to actuate the accord amid aperitive drinks and the accident of developing LADA and Blazon 2 diabetes, she said.
Massive cyber advance takes bottomward above websites A cyberattack that took bottomward ample swaths of the internet about the apple on Friday was agitated out, in part, by biting accessories affiliated to the internet. Security close Flashpoint said it believes that agenda video recorders and webcams in people s homes were taken over by malware and then, after owners knowledge, acclimated to advice assassinate the massive cyberattack.

So far, no one has acicular a feel at a accurate accumulation or nation. It s too anon to know, Doug Madory, a administrator at Dyn told . Related: LinkedIn hacking doubtable articular by admiral The methods acclimated in Friday s advance were actual agnate to the one agitated out adjoin the website of cyber researcher Brian Krebs aftermost month, as able-bodied as French internet account provider OVH, according to Flashpoint. It s alien if the attacks are related. After the cyberattack adjoin Krebs, the antecedent cipher acclimated to backpack out the bang was appear online. Since again added hackers accept been application the malware to backpack out their own attacks. Related: No, the presidential acclamation can t be afraid While DDoS attacks are annihilation new, analysis shows they re acceptable more adult and frequent.
