"Video capturing a child's first steps or first words are first day of school. This is what so many of us do right? As parents, we document the moments that are important in our child's life and we posted online for our community to see. And as we do that. We are inevitably shaping our child's online presence. Most of the time the child in question doesn't really get a say in the matter and that creates complications as kids get older and realized that much of their life is already online and anyone can see it Taylor. Lawrence is a staff writer at the take who's been reporting on this her recent pieces called when kids realize their whole life is already online. She joins us via Skype Taylor. Thanks for being here. Thank you so much for having me, what provoked you to look into this. You know, there's so much about the set from the parent's perspective. But I just wanted you talk to them. So. Selves about when they surged to realize that they had its presence. What was the range of of responses when you engage them on this? I mean, it kind of just runs the gamut. Some kids were upset about the information that was out there about them. So they Google themselves and find, you know, in some cases, their parents have consented to school websites loosing about them. They were upset that may be the whole sports record was up there or that their parents had plus lot more public stuff than they realized. And then some kids really liked it like there was one boy who really felt like it made him feel famous to have all these pictures of himself on the internet. Maybe eighty percent of the kids that I spoke to didn't realize the extent of their internet presence, and the ones that did had parents had proactively warn them about it. But they had been told United staff line, but they got since they didn't have social media themselves. There would actually be that much about them. But in some cases, that's just not the case in your reporting in in these conversations. I mean, did it create tension in any of these relationships, especially as you? You got to like the middle school age or high school? That's when it starts to create tension. I think kids in elementary score the ones that I talked to you between third and fifth grade when they first Google themselves in pants, they're kind of like frustrated by what they find. Or they think it's novel. But it wasn't 'til kids got to middle school that I heard anybody really state like I my about this. I'm really frustrated desert or my dad or whatever. So I think middle school is often when kids want to get their own social media profiles. And I think they just want to start dictating their online presence for themselves. So I think that's the Olympic fiction agrees. But the bottom line is talk to your kids before you post. Yeah. And help them understand these platforms. Do you know a lot of parents wanted to their kids from these platforms? But I think parents need to have a better understanding of how these platforms work, and they just need to open the dialogue Taylor Lawrence. He's a staff writer at the Atlantic Taylor. Thanks so much. Yeah. Thank you so much for having me. Spain used to be one of the few European countries that did not have a far right party.

"It's six thirty five. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. While President Trump negotiates over North Korea's nuclear weapons today to other nuclear powers have been shooting at each other. We heard yesterday of an Indian air raid into Pakistani territory today Pakistan, says it shot down two Indian aircraft inside its airspace Pakistan adds that its forces captured. An Indian pilot NPR's Lauren Freyer has been covering the story from Assam in northern India. Hi laurin. Hi, steve. There have been conflicting stories here. But what are the Pakistanis say they did the Pakistan says it shot down two Indian aircraft that entered its airspace though. It says they fell out of the sky and opposite sides of the line of control that's the defacto border between the Indian and Pakistani area areas of Kashmir Kashmir is divided territory in the Himalayas of these countries have been fighting over for an awfully long time Pakistan says it captured one of the Indian pilots now initially intended captured two pilots, and now it's corrected that and said, it has one pilot in custody and the Pakistani military spokesman actually tweeted a picture of him. Okay. So we have that evidence of someone in custody. What does India saying about all this will end? Yeah. Has a very different story. India says it was Pakistani planes that entered Indian airspace. Face. It says India scrambled planes to respond and shot down a Pakistani plane now the Indian government spokesman confirmed that India lost one of its fighter planes in this engagement, he called it. And he did confirm that one Indian pilot is missing in action. And we've also just heard that India has now summoned Pakistan's High Commissioner in Delhi. That's the equivalent of an ambassador summoned into a government meeting, isn't there? Also, a video of this pilot. That's been circulating. Dramatic video and we can't verify this video, but both Pakistani and Indian media are showing this it shows a man who says he is an Indian pilot in Pakistani custody, he says his name and his service number allowed the video then zooms into an Indian air force logo on his jacket. He's speaking in English to his captors. He's actually, very polite. He calls them, sir. His face is bloodied. He's blindfolded as I said, we can't verify this. But it is circulating widely in both countries, Lauren. I think a lot of Americans have been waking up the last couple of mornings startled to find Indians and Pakistanis shooting at each other which is fair enough. We've got a lot going on here, but how did events escalate to this point over the last few weeks. Right. So these are neighbors who have always been rivals, but the tensions really escalated two weeks ago with a suicide car bomb. They killed forty Indian troops on the Indian side of Kashmir. A Pakistan based militant group claimed responsibility. And India was really really angry and yesterday it retaliated says it conducted air strikes on militant training camp inside Pakistani-Controlled territory and killed many a very large number. It said a fighters their Pakistan denied any damage or casualties, although it did acknowledge that Indian fighter jets entered its airspace. And so today, we've got Pakistan responding saying it's shot down Indian planes, and how does this bombing?

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. While President Trump negotiates over North Korea's nuclear weapons to other nuclear powers are shooting at each other. We heard yesterday of an Indian air raid into Pakistani territory today, Pakistan, says it shot down two Indian aircraft inside its airspace Pakistan adds that its forces captured to Indian pilots what's going on here. NPR's Lauren friars in Assam and northern India monitoring the story. Hi laurin. Hi, steve. Let's start with a Pakistani version of events. What do they say? They did. Right. So Pakistan says it shot down two Indian jets that entered its airspace military jets. It says they fell out of the sky and opposite sides of the line of control that's the defacto border between the Indian and Pakistani areas of Kashmir Kashmir is a divided territory that these countries have long been fighting over Pakistan says it captured the two Indian pilots of those aircraft. Now, we're getting. A very different story though from the Indian government in what way India says it was Pakistani planes that entered Indian airspace. It says India responded and shot down a Pakistani plane now the government's Indian government spokesman confirmed that India lost one of its own fighter planes in this engagement. He called it. And he confirmed that one Indian pilot is missing in action. And we're just getting word right now that India has summoned Pakistan's High Commissioner in New Delhi. That's the equivalent of an ambassador summoned to a government meeting just moments ago. Okay. So so many differences of views there. But it sounds like they agree. The two sides agree that something Indian was shot out of the sky went down. And that at least one Indian pilot was lost hasn't. There actually been some kind of video of Indian pilot dramatic video, and we can't verify this video, but both Pakistani and Indian media are showing this it shows a man who says. He is an Indian pilot in Pakistani custody, he says his name and his service number allowed the video then zooms into an Indian air force logo on his jacket. He's speaking in English to his captors. He's actually, very polite. He calls them, sir. His face is bloodied. He's blindfolded as I said, we can't verify this. But it is circulating widely in both countries, Lauren. I think a lot of Americans have been waking up the last couple of mornings startled to find Indians and Pakistanis shooting at each other which is fair enough. We've got a lot going on here, but how did events escalate to this point over the last few weeks. Right. So these are neighbors who have always been rivals, but the tensions really escalated two weeks ago with a suicide car bomb killed forty Indian troops on the Indian side of Kashmir a Pakistan based militant group claimed responsibility. And India was really really angry and yesterday it retaliated. It says it conducted air strike. On a militant training camp inside Pakistani-Controlled territory and killed many a very large number instead of fighters their Pakistan denied any damage or casualties, although it did acknowledge that Indian fighter jets entered its airspace. And today, we've got Pakistan responding saying it's shot down Indian claims and India confirms one of its pilots is missing and how does this bombing? And then the military action that is followed fit into the broader decades long fight over this province of Kashmir, right? So Kashmir is in the Himalayas. It's a beautiful valley. I was actually just there a couple of weeks ago. You can really see why they fight over it the conflict there, it goes all the way back to the founding of India and Pakistan when they got independence from Britain in nineteen forty seven at partition, Pakistan was carved out of the Muslim majority areas of India, and the one exception was Kashmir Kashmir's Muslim-majority area.

"The time is now thirty four minutes past five it's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In his final state of the union speech in two thousand sixteen President Obama declared the state of our union is strong in his state of the union speech in two thousand eighteen President Trump declared the state of our union is strong. It's a common sentiment. President Bush said it President Clinton said it today. We can say the state of the union is delayed. House speaker Nancy Pelosi made a definite yesterday. The president may not use the house chamber until a partial government shutdown is over the president replied by Twitter last night that that is her prerogative, and he will wait NPR political editor Domenico Montanaro never waits. He's here. Once again this morning domestic oh, good morning. Hey there Stephen I'll wait as long as you need. Okay. Why did the president not seek some other place? Well, he decided to relent and back down, which is not usual for his for what he's done over his presidency. But he decided that he was not going to seek a different venue. He tweeted that there's no venue that can compete with the history tradition and importance of the house chamber. He said he looks forward to giving it in the near future after the shutdown is over, and, you know, it's it's probably no coincidence that there were three polls out yesterday continuing to show the president's numbers getting worse and worse during the shutdown people are blaming him for it. They're saying the shutdown. Down is more of a problem than the border and his approval rating in a people for example, went to thirty four percent. The lowest of his presidency in that poll, and among independence almost seven ten disapprove of the job doing what I was looking at the fivethirtyeight polling average, you take an average of polls. Since anyone Paul might be a little off his approval rating was ten points water in December like forty-one percent approved around fifty one percent disapprove, which is really bad. And now it is far worse something like fifty five thirty nine fifty five percent, disapproval and only thirty nine percent approval. That is appalling for a president. Yeah. It's really expanded since the government shutdown began December twenty first and it's hard to ignore a confluence of polls. You know, you can cherry pick one thing. But when you see that trend, which is really the way to consume them, even the president has to look at that and think something has to change here. And you know, a Fox News poll is out yesterday. They conduct. Very good polls. And it showed, you know, three quarters of the country think that the border is I'm sorry. Three quarters of the country. Think that the shutdown is a big is a big problem compared to fewer fewer than that may be about six and ten at the border was and of course, that's poll that we would presume the president has seen since expenses. A lot of time. Watching Fox News and often often tweeting about it. Although he hasn't tweeted that poll so far as we so far as we know tweet that if it's a not favorable have Democrats offered the president any way to get out of this. Well, Democrats have not offered anything yet to the president except to say that opened the government up, and then we can negotiate which the Democrats are saying, you know, that's one of the bills. It's going to be voted on today and expected to fail. Of course, the president's proposal in the Senate is also going to be loaded on where he wants five point seven billion dollars for a wall and offering temporary immigrant temporary protections for immigrants in the country. But Democrats are likely to offer a counterproposal according to NPR Susan Davis that does spend significantly on border security, just not going to offer anything for that wall. Would it be five point seven billion dollars? Which is the exact amount. The president is demanding just not for a wall for other kinds of security. Well, you know, Democrats have shown a pension to actually spend potentially more money than that in past years when it comes to other things when you think about drones or technology, really the wall has become symbolic for both Democrats and Republicans at least for this president to say that this is his physical view of saying that he's tough on the border and Democrats saying that this is also a physical view of saying that you're trying to keep people out. So because Democrats in the past, of course, have been in favor of securing various parts of the border and fencing the medical thanks for the. Update. Really appreciate it. You're welcome. That's NPR political editor Domenico Montanaro. Spain received the highest number of migrants on their shores last year topping both Italy and Greece Spain saw a sharp increase of arrivals last summer, which overwhelmed refugee centers in the south and this year Spanish officials expect the number to keep rising.

We'll have that story and more on the California report here on cake morning edition. The California report comes your way at five fifty one end six fifty one here on K Q E D. Good morning. It's seven after three. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. We're watching a high stakes negotiation a lawyer Christine Blasi Ford is negotiating terms for her appearance before the Senate Judiciary committee. She was on the phone lawyer was yesterday with staff for Senator Chuck Grassley. He's the Senator who's committee is considering the nomination to the supreme court of Brett Cavanaugh, and of course, Christine Blasi Ford has accused Cavanaugh sexual assault decades ago when they were in high school Grassley would like a hearing on Monday Christine Blasi Ford's lawyer now says maybe Thursday under certain conditions, and the committee chairman says he is committed to a fair forum NPR White House correspondent, Scott Horsely is on the line, Scott. Good morning. Good morning. Steve. What makes the details of exactly what day and exactly how they testify matter so much. We'll everyone here is jockeying to present their side of the story in the best possible light for Blasi four. She's trying to avoid having this turned into a. Lopsided? He said she said contest, the Senate Republicans are also trying to look like to try to avoid looking as if they're railroading a vulnerable victim of sexual assault. Since Ford came pub went went public with her accusations against a brick Cavanaugh last Sunday, she has received death threats she and her family have been hounded out of their home. So her attorney says she very much wants to have a setting that is fair and that ensures her safety for Cavanaugh who denies all these allegations. He wants to have the hearing as soon as possible. So he gets a chance to clear his name. Well, let me figure this out there. Details at Blasi fours. Lawyers asked for for example, the two witnesses shouldn't be in the same room at the same time. But there also seems to be a big concession here that she is willing to have her client testify sometime next week has she backed down from an earlier demand for a full FBI investigation before she testifies. Well, her attorney says that still her strong preference. But it is no longer an absolute precondition, and that's a big change over the last day or so for a while looked as if that demand might be a show stopper here. Because Ford wanted an FBI pro before. She testified the FBI said it didn't do that kind of work. The Senate Republicans didn't want to have that kind of investigation. And so it looked as if cavenaugh might just skate to a confirmation hearing confirmation vote next week albeit under some cloud of suspicion. Now, it appears Ford is willing to testify without that preliminary investigation. And so the timing of a Senate vote is now again up in the air. And remember the supreme court is due to start its fall term a week from Monday. How might the hearing go assuming they're finally as a hearing? That's the big question that we're still waiting to see. And that's what the subject of these negotiations is as you mentioned Chuck Grassley. The Republican chairman of the committee says he is committed to a forum that is fair to both Ford and cavenaugh we're waiting to see what that might look like will there be more than just those two witnesses will the committee here from others. We know they've already reached out to Mark judge a classmate of Kavanagh's who Ford said was present at the assault. Judge has denied that the is also reached out to to others who were said to be at the house party where this allegedly took place. There's also a question of whether the committee's Republican senators, all of whom are men would do the questioning themselves or would they bring in an outside counsel, perhaps a woman to to join so all that still being worked out. So as all this is happening. President Trump spoke up last night praising Brad Kavanagh a campaign rally in Las Vegas. Let's listen a great intellect. A great gentleman and impeccable reputation went to Yale top student. Wendy, Yale Law School top sued. So we gotta let it play out. But I wanna tell you. He is a fine fine person spoke up for cavenaugh, but has not attacked Blasi Ford directly. Yes. And that's a break from the president's usual MO as a counterpuncher of hitting back hard against those who attack him or his associates, but it's consistent with the tone that Trump and his team have adopted all this week White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the beginning of the week that Ford should not be insulted. She should be listened to. And so for the moment at least the president is sticking to that playbook. Scott. Thanks for updating us. Really appreciate it. You're welcome. Steve for that's NPR's. Scott Horsely this summer Spain agreed to take in a ship of six hundred migrants that had been turned away from Italy.
