Tech Companies Face New Rules in India
"For many tech companies. India is key to continued growth while developed markets are becoming increasingly saturated there over one point. Three billion people in india only about half of whom are online which means there are hundreds of millions of people who have yet to start using email or buying things online but india has increasingly sought to exert more control over the tech giant's setting up shop there which has sometimes resulted in clashes between the companies. And the government. The latest new rules to govern how internet companies like twitter and whatsapp handled problematic content. Online here to talk more about this is tech reporter newly per now. Hey newly thanks for being here. My pleasure okay. So let's start by talking. Broadly about some of the regulations. The indian government has started to implement what we've we been seeing up to now sure we'll over the last few years. As e commerce companies like amazon or as digital services like google and twitter and facebook have become so prominent in india as they are in other countries. You've start to hear bureaucrats talking about the importance of data sovereignty. They call it or the rights of indians to be able to make their grievances against some of these platforms heard or the fact that these behemoths are so dominant and that indian start ups and tech companies haven't really been given to room to breeze the government officials say. And so you started. Hear them talking about the quietly geopolitical reasons. The success that china has had in developing their own tech giant's global tech giants. And so you starting to see moves like tightening of restrictions on ecommerce companies that affect amazon. And the the amazon of india coai flip car which is now owned by walmart. You started to see data. Localization regulation start should be talked about and the now of course these newest rules on social media company. So it's a bit by bit tightening. Where the government seems to be exerting more control over some of these. us tech firms that have been just so dominant. Over the years in india and newly i understand that some of the measures have resulted in a couple of clashes particularly in the last few weeks. Sure will the. The one of the major clashes in recent weeks with twitter was where the government asked the platform to remove a lot of accounts that were tweeting anti-government material amid these long running protests of farmers against the government in new delhi said that they're inflammatory. They're inciting violence. They're trying to foment social unrest. Twitter blocked them unblock them and then under pressure from the government in which they were threatened with having their executives arrested block them again. So you have a twitter or being in the position of saying we respect freedom of speech and people's ability to express political opinions and wanting to enable their us to do that. But then really getting hit with this. Mr very strong pushback from the government so that was a major one and then thursday. Of course we have these these new social media intermediary rules right and let's talk more about those new rules. What prompted them. And what are they meant to do. Well there had been suggestions brewing for some time that the government was looking to revamp what it calls its intermediary rules which are the rules that govern tech platforms and so called over the top or ott players like what's app and streaming platforms like netflix. And so what. They've come out with on. Thursday is a set of rules that set out guidelines for how these large social media companies have to operate so include things like including a grievance officer who's resident in india to address concerns that users or the government might have it includes timelines that tech companies have to keep in mind in responding to some of these issues a code of conduct have ethics for streaming platforms and so essentially. It seems to be the government saying our users should be able to take action or have their their problematic issues address with these platforms. And we wanna make rules really for the first time that make these tech. Companies have to respond more quickly. So how are the tech companies responding to that. What did they say about these new rules so far. They haven't said much you know. Companies of all stripe don't like to be regulated unless they have to be although facebook has said for some time with mounting regulations. Coming around the world that they welcome them but tech observers have said. It's some of these are raised issues worries because they come as prime minister. Modi's government is facing his biggest political test ever in these months-long protests by farmers against some new farming regulations. And and so you've seen the in rhetoric. At least the government getting more aggressive with these companies that are so dominant in india. Many of them have not said much and and they may be waiting to see you know if the political storm passes but they certainly don't want to come out and say well we're not going to do or we're not going to disagree with the government because as we've seen last year india did ban tiktok massively popular platform in india after some clashes in the border region with china. So that was a warning sign. I think to a lot of these companies that india won't hesitate to take drastic action
Jonathan Metzl on what's driving polarization in a post-Trump America and how to fix it
"Jonathan mezzo welcome. Back to the podcast. Third time i'm a regular honored to be back so the second time you're on it was to put the response to covid into context and why people were not taking the please wearing masks seriously. Now we're after the election. When eighty one million people voted for joe biden and seventy four million people voted for donald trump. ten million more than voted for him in two thousand sixteen. And so i've been dying to talk to you. Because there's there's a conversation to be had in this country right now About how do we move forward when we have a split like this in our country. And i want to start the conversation by actually going backwards for those who have not listened to the first our first conversation about your book dying of whiteness. Just in a thumbnail. Because i know you know how you can do it. Talk about why wrote dying of whiteness. And the important message that you're getting across in that book sure absolutely will. Dying of whiteness is a book that i started actually before trump became president and kind of tracks the the rise of of trump in in in where i live tennessee kentucky. I'm also from kansas city so kansas and missouri and what i saw was the rise of kind of politics on one hand promised to make america great again but did so on the billy on the lifespans of everybody including its own supporters. So what i did in the book. Is i just tracked the rise of kind of anti immigrant anti government pro gun politics in in the rural midwest. And i'm a. I'm a physician also so i applied to public health plans and i asked the question. What happens if the politicians you vote for block for example medicaid expansion in your own state or undermine the on the public school system that your kids go to or make it very easy for anybody to get again with no background check and i really just tell the story of how the policies that were supposed to make america great again and did in some ideological ways ended up being as dangerous for rural white people in the in the midwest and south as best as or not wearing seatbelts in their car or secondhand smoke they literally became disease risk factors the actual policies that shortened lifespans of many lower income people including white supporters. So in the book. I talk about how those particular politics and up shortening white lifespans by anywhere from a month to a couple of years in some instances and i go around and really ask people why is it. Why are you supporting policies. That are so bad for your health and your lifespan. And i come up with a bunch of different answers but one is that the investment in this idea of what it means to be white as being on top of a particular hierarchy that has to keep everybody else down ends up being a kind of Siren call for people that causes them to really forget all the other tenants of of what we might. Otherwise think of as so interest and creates kind polarizing rhetoric of us versus them that propels support for these politics even when they're killing their own supporters.
Extremists Emboldened by Capitol Attack Pose Rising Threat, Homeland Security Says
"Department of Homeland Security issued a national alert yesterday that there could be more domestic terrorism in the coming weeks. The alert warns of potential violence from extremists who still object to the presidential transition or who holds just generally anti government views. Chris Loftis with the State Patrol says there are no known credible threats to anybody in Washington state. But their guard is up. We can't be alarmist, but we can't be dismissive of the risk either. We've just seen in our recent past that there's risk can manifest themselves and people could be armed and we just can't let that happen. In Olympia, the state's national guard is standing down. But Loftus says the heightened security contingent is standing by and the fence surrounding the capital is going to stay up. Homeland Security asks that everyone reports any suspicious activity or threats of violence, whether it's in person or
DHS bulletin warns of potential domestic terrorism against elected officials, government buildings
"Terror advisory bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security is warning of a heightened threat across the country from ideologically motivated violent extremists. DHS rarely sends out these warnings, but officials say they've received information that these people object to the exercise of government authority. And the presidential transition, And this comes more than three weeks after that violent insurrection at the U. S. Capitol. We're joined now by NPR National security correspondent Greg Marie with the latest on this. Hi, Greg. Hi, Tanya. Tell us more about this bulletin. What kind of threats is the department looking into? Well the bullets and doesn't name any individual or any group or any specific threat. It's a very generalized warning about the far right in this expectation that there is an elevated threat level for at least the next few months. The statement sites the U. S presidential election in November, the January 6 assault on the Capitol. And even last week's presidential transition. Now it makes the point that we shouldn't just see. This is one concentrated period of over the past couple months where tensions were inflamed and events got out of hand. But rather there's this concern that in Washington and across the country, we should view this as an ongoing risk, huh? I know that you said we don't have Much information this morning describes these ideologically motivated violent extremists is having quote perceived grievances fueled by false narratives. Do you have any idea who these people are and what you might have learned about their motivations? Well, obviously, this reference to false narrative is clearly talking about former President Trump and his supporters who claim he won the election. And as we saw in the capital at the capital a few weeks ago, it's this range of individuals and groups on the far right to white supremacists, Anti government folks, those who talk about a deep state And we should just remind listeners. We're now up to about 150 arrests from that particular event and hundreds of cases or under investigation And as these individuals and groups continue their chatter on social media. They clearly know they're being watched and that this may be a good time for them to be cautious and stay below the radar. Okay. As I mentioned, the DHS does not put out many of these bulletins. Why is it doing it now? And what are they asking for? From the general public? Right. They've only done this once in the past year, and that was when there was tensions with Iran a year ago, and we haven't seen the government issued this kind of broad general warning about the far right ever from from DHS. So by doing so very publicly, the Biden administration seems to be sending a message on on several levels. It's telling law enforcement. This is going to be a priority. It's telling the far right groups. They're going to be closely watched, and it's also signaling to the public that these cases will be aggressively pursued much more so than during the Trump administration. Right it. It appears to be a broader effort by the Biden administration to address this threat. That's NPR national security correspondent Greg Marie, as always, Thank you so much. My pleasure.

"To public service? It's appalling and it's noticed by every single employee at the State Department even though there's Democrats Kratzer Republicans but when you have this unwillingness to stand up for the people that's something that cuts right across. This institution will hear more from in Basseterre Kennedy tomorrow. President trump officially signed off on next year's annual cap for refugees bring it to an historic low eighteen thousand. That's a huge drop from one hundred ten thousand refugees the CAP set by President Obama in two thousand sixteen his last year in office. The world's immigration editor Monica Campbell joins joins us now to tell us more Monica. Can you just recap on the current status of the US refugee program. And and what's GonNa Happen in two thousand twenty well. Eighteen thousand is definitely definitely the lowest number. We've seen in the refugee program since it began in one thousand nine hundred eighty. So this is a dramatic dramatic. Matic drop I also see. The trump administration has issued another change to the refugee program which is an executive order. That makes it possible for states to basically opt out of accepting refugees. What does that really mean it? So the order requires state and local government officials now to sign a letter to the State Department saying we support refugee resettlement. If they don't sign a letter if they don't offer that kind of affirmative consent consent that means that that state or that local government will not accept refugees. So it's either a governor can wholesale say the state won't accept refugees or city or town can say no and the governor has to enforce. That's exactly right. The deadline for this is December. Twenty Fifth Christmas Smith Stay so of refugee resettlement agencies and people who work with refugees are really watching. What is happening in? We've seen some governors already issue. Their support the Governor of Utah. Who's a Republican issued his support for the refugee program and a couple of other governors have already too but we're still waiting to see what Texas does Texas receives the most refugees of any state in the country? How is the trump administration explaining? What's behind these drastic steps? When it comes to why we're seeing fewer refugees accepted into the United States? In general trump administration officials. Say that they are working on diplomacy abroad that they're working to address the wars and the conflicts that make people leave their homes to begin with and that accepting refugees in the United States is not the most efficient way to deal with global problems. It's to go to the root of the problems in terms of this executive order And giving more weight to the voices of state and local officials they say that consultation is insufficient and that there needs to be closer coordination between state and local governments when it comes to refugee resettlement. That's what the government says is behind this executive order Monica. What are you hearing in? Terms of the possible fallout from slashing the US refugee camp..
