"You're with the world. Today, President Biden continued his cascade of executive orders. The headline that he's expanding health care is welcome news to many people, including 20 year old Leticia Arcila in Atlanta. We met our seal The last year's part of our every 30 Seconds project following young Latino first time voters from W. A B in Atlanta, Martha Dalton has this update. When we first met Letizia last February, she was on crutches. I tore a ligament in my knee. She tripped and fell at work and went to an emergency room to get treated. The lady with the billing can of information came in first thing. Chassis was like, Okay, well, do you have insurance and I I don't have insurance, So I obviously said no. She had a job, but no health insurance. She was like, Okay, well, Your bill is estimated 1300 something dollars. She ended up paying a few $100 out of pocket. Leticia initially supported Bernie Sanders for president because he promised to expand health care access. After Sanders dropped out, Leticia resigned herself to supporting Joe Biden. Now she feels optimistic about the future and there's something else. I just got insurance from my job from working so much there. They gave me benefits, and I want to say that It has changed my life. Having health care has literally changed my life. She has a different job now and says it's the first time she's had private insurance. I have never had the ability to go to a chiropractor ever in my life. And I'm going like weekly. I'm going to guess and technologists. I'm doing all of this stuff. I'm going to go see a therapist like I cannot believe how much one tiny amount of help can change so much, And she says it's more than just being able to see a specialist when she needs to, even though I'm working a lot now and You know, schools a lot. I don't feel as stressed, as I did before. I feel like I can actually handle things going on. Now. She'd like to see the same thing happened for others. Like her cousin, Brian Rico. He's 19 and, like Leticia, voted in his first presidential election for Joe Biden. Brian works two jobs but doesn't have insurance. I don't really get covered for my job. It's not great. It sucks. So I would want something, you know, at least act like a blanket. Any case something happens. The cousins are very close, and they share a lot of the same political beliefs. I think that it's really hard also, and the position that I was in a year ago on that, you know, Brian this currently and in that thousands or millions of Americans also go through that are the young and they have, you know. Immigrant parents, too, You know on Lee go to the hospital until absolutely necessary or you're like losing an arm. Leticia is hopeful that President Joe Biden with a Democratic Congress will be able to improve the health care system. Both cousins are encouraged by the fact that Biden has already signed dozens of executive orders on issues like immigration, pandemic relief and climate change. Here's Brian Again. We expect him to really go out and Do those things that he actually promised he would do, and for him to actually start putting executive orders showing that he actually will start doing change really has me happy that That Maybe this year really is a year that people start realizing that this actual change is going to happen. The whole family is counting on that change. Leticia is parents are saving money to buy a house. Meanwhile, a pending immigration case will determine if they receive US residency. Things are looking pretty good right now. Hopefully things stay good. I want to stay optimistic. I don't want to the negative about one thing. You know, I just want to start the new year with a clean slate after a tough year politically and personally, Leticia says. They can all finally breathe. For the world. I'm Martha Dalton in Atlanta. Martha Dalton joins me now from her home studio in Atlanta. Hi, Martha. Hi, Marco. So Leticia story there really showed how checking off the health care box can lead to so many other positive outcomes. We also got to hear from a cousin Brian, also a first time voter. Also someone who had to deal with no health care tell us more about how that motivated people like Leticia and Brian. And making the connection between their health and casting a ballot. Right. Well, you can hear them both talking about how they're coming into adulthood, so they're kind of learning about the health care system and how everything works. Where is before you know his younger people? Their parents take care of everything. When you hear Leticia talking about how much life has changed for her since she got healthcare coverage through her job, But she clearly remembers what it was like because it wasn't that long ago to be in Brian's position, So she has that empathy for what it's like. That was a huge factor in both of them in terms of their vote. You told us in past updates that lettuces parents were not eligible to vote. She's the first person to cast a ballot in the U. S. And her immediate family. Usually parents influence their kids. They set the example to vote even sometimes whom to vote for in Leticia is case. How did this play out? Yeah, well, it's really interesting. I think in her family, it's sort of work to be other way. She's actually ended up influencing her parents. And as you mentioned, her parents aren't eligible to vote. But she said, since she's been involved in the voting process, and she's done a little bit of phone banking things like that, But she's not really an activist. But she's become interested in politics and engaged and she says, You know, my parents. They didn't use toe sort of watch the news or anything like that. But she says, now my mom calls me at work, You know, saying Did you see this on the news? Did you see that on the news? It's kind of interesting As you said, a lot of times. Parents influence their kids, But in this case, it's sort of been the other way around. We also learned this year that not all Latino voters considered immigration as their main voting issue, but for Leticia and her cousin, Brian Immigration and health care It seemed to be top of mind. Did lettuces parents immigration status now applying for residency? Did that influence their vote? What did they tell you? Definitely, definitely. For the two of them. Immigration is an important issue, and we learned during the run off elections in Georgia. Even though immigration may not be sort of a top three voting issue for the majority of Latino voters, it's still important to many of them. So some local data showed that about 25% of Latino voters listed immigration as an important voting issue, so not the majority of voters, But it's still an important issue for some So you covered the Latino youth vote in Georgia beyond the general election Martha into the run offs earlier this month in Georgia for both elections there. How important was the youth of? Well? All of the campaigns here definitely targeted young voters and the use of social media became more important during the pandemic. Knows people weren't gathering in large groups. So we saw campaigns turning this sites like Tic Tac to get their message is out. And it seems have had an effect. You know about a quarter of voters in both elections were under the age of 40. Yeah, that does feel like a turning point. Are the adult and a reporter. W A B in Atlanta and part of her every 30 seconds. Team, Martha. It was great to have you as part of this project over the past year and thank you so much for bringing us Leticia are still a story. I really learned a lot is my pleasure. Thanks, Marco.

Russia's claim that it's approved the world's first Corona virus vaccine is being met with international skepticism. NPR's Richard Harris reports. Russian scientists have not offered proof on whether the vaccine is safe or effective. The Russian vaccine has so far only been tested on a few dozen people. Even so, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the nation has approved the product and could start inoculating people in October. It's named after Sputnik, the first artificial satellite, which the Soviet Union launched more than 60 years ago. Dr. Paul, often a vaccine expert at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, says no vaccine should be approved before it's shown to be safe and effective. The notion that they would actually roll this vaccine out into the arms of the Russian public without doing adequate safety and efficacy testing. I think it's shameful.

"At ten nine central on history. This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Michelle Martin. And now, we'll return to our troll watch series. That's what we bring you stories of cybersecurity attacks bots, and of course, internet trolls this week. We're going to hear about a report from the international human rights organization. Amnesty International the focused on online abuse directed at women. Their report called troll the troll, analyzed millions of tweets sent to women last year. And it found what many people already suspected that women and particularly women of color are targeted for abuse on Twitter Tanya, Carol is one of the reports authors, and she directs amnesty tech, that's an arm of the organization focused on the intersection of technology and human rights, and I started our conversation by asking her what made the organization decide to look at the environment for women on Twitter. Well, I think that the space that we've been operating as a human rights organization has changed so much in the past ten years. So in the last couple of years, we've been documenting everything from the use of surveillance spyware attacks against human rights defenders and on the other hand stuff. Like manipulation of social media. So we tracked in Mexico, for example, the use of trials to undermine and discredit very prominent critical voices, a generalist and human rights defenders. And so it's about trying to upscale ourselves in order to re understand the way that state control and repression she takes place now that the internet is is here. So tell us about some of the findings from the report that stood out for you. I I just want to mention here that the the model estimated that of the fourteen point five million tweets mentioning women a million of them were abusive or as you described problematic. But you also said that some of the findings on race really stood out. Tell me a little bit more about that. Yes. We found the women of color were targeted. More say they were in general thirty four percent more likely to receive abuse them, white women and black women, particularly. So I think the most striking finding radius this eighty four percent more likely to receive abuse than white women. Asian women seventy percent. More likely to receive racist or ethnic slurs. I think this is not shocking to a lot of people in the sense that it's what we've been anecdotally hearing for very long time. But what is this time we have? Now, the evidence base to say that this is not this is not a perception. Can I talk to you about the methodology from and understand that there was a combination of machine learning and crowdsourcing that you've got input for more than six thousand online volunteers from around the world, the data is very compelling. But what about men did you compare it to men because I can imagine where some might argue fairly or unfairly that is the Twitter verse that is, unfortunately, the culture of the place, and that men are equally likely to be attacked, and it may be unpleasant. But at least it's equal opportunity. What would you say to that? Yeah. We didn't actually look at met in this study. And this is partly because this study is the third big piece of research that we've done on the phenomenon of violence against women online. And so it's based on the fact that we already knew, and we know that the way that women are targeted online is very different. And it's very gendered. It stuff like dogs saying and hacking and violent rape threats. And so in this case, we are very specifically interested in the experience of women because we know just as offline discrimination and violence against women is rife. We reached out to Twitter for comment on the report in official responded by Email, and I'll just read here quoting Twitter has publicly committed to improving the collective health openness and civility of public conversation on our service, unquote. They added that abuse militias, automated and manipulation detract from the health of Twitter, and that we are committed to holding ourselves publicly accountable towards progress in this regard, I understand that members of the international team have spoken with Twitter. Ceo Jack Dorsey about the report and its findings. Can you share any more information about that? Was there any meeting of the minds about what might happen going forward? Yes. I mean, this is the interesting thing, right? Which is that normally when I'm nasty a calling out company. We're very much on the other side of the table in this case what we find from Twitter is that they get the this is a big issue. They acknowledged that this is happening on that platform. The question next is how how do we address it? How does Twitter address it a lot of the abuse that we detected and many people report should be taken down from the platform. The second issue is transparency they've started to release some data, but the data isn't currently disaggregated. It doesn't tell us much about the number of tweets and total that sent to women that may be abusive every year, how many of them are removed, and it was a weather's moderate is based what languages that they speak. You know, Twitter is a global platform and the abuse is global too. I I want to drill down just a little bit more on what you think the practical effect of what you found is that causes us to rise to the level of a human rights issue. Yeah. I mean, the the practical effect is. Censorship. You know, I think when we talk about censorship, so often people's instinct is to think about the protected speech. So the ability to offend the ability to even abuse. We don't think very often about what the censorship consequences are for people who are regularly abused and intimidated and essentially become scattered over time to speak how online to express themselves freely. Really anytime a women has the audacity to hold an opinion and express it in a in a proud or confident way online they may become victim to a backlash and potentially an orchestrated backlash. So I think when we talk about this issue and think about the freedom of expression consequences is really important to realize whose freedom of expression. Are we prioritizing? That's tanya. Oh, Carol director of amnesty, Tackett Amnesty International. We reached her in Oxford. Tonya, thanks so much for talking with us. No worries. Thanks so much. We're going to spend some time.
