"NPR news in Washington, I'm Snyder. The United States is sending Ukraine and other $275 million in weapons and military equipment. And Pierre's Franco ordonez reports a supplies or part of a new package and tended to bolster Ukrainian forces ahead of winter fighting. The package will include more ammunition for high mobility artillery rocket systems known as high Mars, hundreds of precision guided artillery rounds and a 125 humvees. Officials say there are no major new weapons in the package, but defense secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters earlier this week that he expects to deliver a highly anticipated surface to air missile system next month. That air defense system can be used to shoot down targets in the sky, including drones and ballistic missiles. U.S. officials say the U.S. is now committed more than $18.5 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the administration. Franco, ordonez, and PR news, crever Y, Ukraine, San Francisco's police chief says the attack on House speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband was not a random act that the 42 year old suspect targeted the Pelosi home. He's facing charges, including attempted homicide. Paul Pelosi suffered a fractured skull and injuries to his right arm and hands, he is recovering from surgery, President Biden has condemned the attack as despicable. The world's richest man is entering his first weekend and control of the influential social media network Twitter. Elon Musk has said he will keep free speech free on Twitter, but there's a wrinkle, as in Raquel Maria Dylan reports. There is a fundamental tension here for Musk. He has to both reassure advertisers that Twitter will still be a place where they can feel comfortable putting their products and logos, and at the same time he wants to run Twitter as a free speech platform with all that entails. Questions are swirling over how Twitter will change under the ownership of Elon Musk who says a moderation board will oversee content on the platform in the UK conservative lawmakers are aiming to pass a bill that could hold Musk personally liable for violations. Reporting from London. If past in its current form, Britain's online safety bill would be the strictest in the world. It would effectively obligate social media companies to alter their algorithms to ensure harmful content no longer reaches children and other vulnerable users. Companies could be fined 10% of total global revenue for failing to take down hate speech and other harmful content, and that's not all conservative lawmaker Damian Collins, telling the BBC. If a company chooses not to comply with the regulators requests for information and data and evidence, then an individual at the company faces criminal sanctions for that.

"Suddenly felt like I didn't know where I was. It's such a part of the landscape and the architecture of the block. Still, she said she was happy to be able to walk down the street in the sun. Jake off at hearts, WNYC news. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin, and I'm Leila faulted. Elon Musk's deal to buy Twitter was hatched via private text messages between the Tesla CEO and a small circle of Silicon Valley's rich and powerful. According to Delaware has released a stream of text messages as part of the legal battle over whether Musk has to follow through on the merger agreement he signed to buy Twitter for $44 billion. Joining us for more on where this lawsuit stands as NPR business reporter Raquel Maria Dylan. Good morning Raquel. Good morning. So first Raquel, tell us why the court would release these text messages. They're part of evidence in Twitter's lawsuit against Musk. That case is just a couple weeks from trial. So the legal teams are going back and forth trying to get access to communications and internal documents to prove their arguments. And to be honest, the case has been very technical so far. The Delaware court where this case was filed is very staid and by the book because they deal with these corporate cases that are worth more money than you can get your head around. And then the text drop yesterday and suddenly it's no longer dry and boring. It's like these billionaires are human. They text like the rest of us. So what was in them? Well, reading the conversations, you can almost see the idea of buying Twitter, take shape and Elon Musk's mind. The lawsuit is going to decide if that actually happens, meaning who owns Twitter. And people are interested in the fate of Twitter because it's so influential and also curious about Musk because of his business savvy and here it is on display. He's doing the deals via text message. But if he made a big mistake by signing a binding contract to acquire Twitter, some people are also going to enjoy seeing him squirm. Okay, so who is he talking to? Well, investors, his finance guy, a couple reporters, random people who are interested in Twitter and well conducted enough to have an introduction to be honest, there is a lot of sucking up. Also, a few telling exchanges. Jack Dorsey, Twitter's cofounder and former CEO, Exxon Musk a lot. They seem to share ideas about free speech on the platform. Also, Musk and Twitter's current CEO, Parag Agrawal, have this momentary bromance. They bond because they're both engineers turned CEOs and have spent time coding in the trenches. And then just a couple days after that interaction by text, they have a falling out, though not via text. Musk is like, I'm out. I'm not on your board. I'm gonna take Twitter private. Yeah, but these aren't just a few Bros texting. These are the world's billionaires texting. What else was in those messages? The amount of money rolling around in these text messages is mind boggling. In one exchange in April, Larry Ellison, who founded Oracle, expressed interest in taking Twitter private and Musk says, how much? Ellison says, and I quote, a billion, or whatever you recommend. And Musk asks for 2 billion, and he gets it. So then fast forward a few months. Here we are, almost to a trial that's could be a showdown of sorts between a tech executive who likes to make his own rules and he rule bound business court that decides when to hold people to their promises. At the end of it, Musk could find himself the unwilling owner of a troubled social media company and also out $44 billion. Oh, just $44 billion. NPR's

The cybersecurity expert who accused Twitter of ignoring obvious security problems has been served with a subpoena, NPR's Raquel Maria Dylan reports, Elon Musk wants to depose the whistleblower in the legal case over whether he's allowed to walk away from his deal to buy Twitter. Elon Musk is asking for communications between top executives at Twitter and Peter mudge, zatko, who is fired in January. In a complaint, the Securities and Exchange Commission zatko accuses Twitter of fraud for misleading regulators about its security practices and how it counts spam accounts on the platform. Musk's core argument so far is that Twitter under counted fake accounts which should allow him to break off the merger, that said through his lawyers that he'll comply with the subpoena, but his appearance at the deposition is involuntary. He said he didn't complain to federal regulators to benefit Musk or harm Twitter, but rather to protect the public and Twitter shareholders. I'm Raquel Maria Dylan and PR news San Francisco.

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm a Martinez. And I'm Rachel Martin, Americans are looking for ways to offset the costs of high inflation on their budgets. For some, that means gig work as NPR's Raquel Maria Dylan reports that's been an unexpected upside for employers that hire independent contractors like rideshare companies.

And with the sign up bonus and I don't know if they somehow know that you're new and they encourage you to give you better rights or somehow I was making I was making good money. The ride hailing apps were offering lots of incentives to sign on and pick up rides, like a bonus for doing three rides in a row or 15 bucks extra for driving it busy times to cope with a driver shortage during the pandemic. Now, with prices rising and inflation at a 40 year high, he says the money's not so good anymore. I remember going to the supermarket and I, my groceries, and I would spend a $100 a week. And now I have to spend a 120 or a $130 for the same things. He's driving more now, 50 to 60 hours a week. Many people are struggling to make ends meet and looking for side hustles. That means more workers turning to Uber and Lyft. In Uber's latest earnings report, CEO Dara khosrowshahi says there's a strong flow of new drivers signing up. Over 70% of them have said that inflation and what they're seeing right now in terms of the cost of groceries across the living plays a part in that decision for them to come onto the platform. With more drivers available, Uber and Lyft are cutting back on recruitment incentives. Here's Lyft cofounder John Zimmer on the company's latest earnings call. Total active drivers were the highest they've been in two years and more

A new year means new state laws and here to tell us about them is KQED politics. Reporter Guy Marzo, Roddy. So let's start with the economy guy are there. New workplace rules going into effect in January? Yes, And I think top of mind with the New year is a new minimum wage. It will go to $13 an hour 14 for larger companies, and there was some doubt this would even happen. You know, the recession triggered this ability for Governor Gavin Newsom to suspend the increase. He ultimately decided to go ahead with it. But I should also know that here in the Bay Area cities like San Francisco San Jose already have the minimum wage. That's about $15 an hour. Thea other big workplace changes this huge expansion of family leave in 2021 so nearly All Californians will be able to take 12 weeks of job protected leave, you know if they need to take care of a newborn of family member that qualification for a family member will now include a grand parent or grandchild, and this leave law will now cover workers at any business with five or more employees. I understand There's also new laws related to cove in 19. That's right. And, you know, covert 19 obviously impacted a lot of the work that the Legislature did in 2020. The spread, you know at the Capitol affected how they did their job. It was far from the only workplace that was impacted. This new law going into effect is a requirement for companies to notify their employees within 24 hours if there's been a covert 19 exposure in the workplace. We've heard about poultry plants, food warehouses, having large outbreaks and not always having a lot of transparency for their workers that it happened. So this new law gives California regulators the ability to basically shut down a workplace that's become a covert 19 hazard and makes the easier for regulators to issue citations. Okay, KQED politics reporter Guy Mars already. Thank.
