You cannot use the ike light logo or any other copyrighted material the entry form on the lake blog so you have to search for light contest to find the link.

It's called the film that grows coral because all advertising revenues from the film support the hope reef. Just go out there and search hope brief. Take a look diving with a purpose. That's exactly what a team of divers started last week. According to an associated press article. That i read this team of five to ten. Divers started a massive six month effort to clean up lake. Tahoe out in california. Their plan is to cover seventy two miles of shoreline and their goal is to conduct three dives each week to a depth of about twenty five feet. The team will be running this dive schedule from now through november. The operation is being sponsored by a nonprofit called. Clean up the lake. It was founded by a guy named colin west who is a diver and a filmmaker. The ultimate cost of this endeavor is two hundred and fifty thousand dollars on that i dive. They pulled two hundred pounds of trash from lake tahoe and tagged twenty larger items for subsequent removal. It's amazing that people still use our lakes rivers and oceans as garbage dumps. Good luck to this team for making a difference and diving with a purpose in case you missed it. Psi pci the gurus scoop scuba cylinder inspection. Recently posted a short article on died news wire. They needed to dispel a couple of rumors. Flying around out there about scuba tanks. One was about old luxury tanks. But that's not what i want to talk about here. Apparently there is a really bad rumor going around that beginning in two thousand and twenty one. Steel cylinders are exempt from ota cleaning requirements. What how did that one start. That is just unsafe and dangerous. Cg a or the compressed gas association states oh to cleaning is required for anything above twenty three point five percent over to please please please make sure you get your tanks properly serviced and cleaned for.

Post-election purge hits cybersecurity

"Cyber security and infrastructure security agency or seesaw was created two years ago within the department of homeland security to shield america's critical infrastructure from cyber attacks its mandate also includes election security and lately it's been debunking misinformation online including false rumors of voter fraud. That are being spread by president trump last week c. says assistant director was pushed out and there have been reports that director. Chris crabs expects to be fired. So what does this all mean for you. Know the other critical infrastructure. Kim zetter a cyber security journalist and author. I asked her what el sisi works on. They do a lot of work. With industrial control systems. Most of our critical infrastructure is privately owned. So we're talking. Water treatment. Plans the electric grid chemical treatment plants. ceaser also has sort of on the ground teams that will come out and do risk assessments of network and cease also a prior to the election was working on getting sensors on election networks to sort of monitor malicious attacks that might be coming into those networks that has been sort of d. h. is mandate to try and bring those networks up to more secure So then what are the national security implications of over in the leadership of the agency. First of all it's just very disruptive especially right now when there's already a lot of chaos men certainty and fear around the rising rate of covid infections and then also a lot of chaos around the election itself in the unsupported claims of voter fraud so at time when the government should have a united front in its response to the health crisis and also for a smooth and peaceful transition to a new administration. This of course creates unnecessary. Upheaval and vulnerability particularly in the eyes of adversaries who might want to take advantage of it. But i should emphasize that even if a figurehead like chris. Crabs is removed. The people on the ground will continue to do that work. It's really just a more of a political issue here now and then also the perception from outside by adversaries i mean it is really interesting that this agency ended up working on misinformation and disinformation. Which would seem to brand disinformation as a national security threat. Right yes it definitely is a concern when you've got this schism between the white house administration and even some top level. Dhs officials and then you've got the schism with the people on the ground within see so who are actually actively trying to fight the misinformation insecure networks. There's always a threat of someone coming in being appointed. Who set of does some of that. Good work. I don't have any concerns about that. I think the people at the and at cease in particular are good at their jobs and securing networks in helping critical infrastructure. And i don't really see that changing generally it seems cybersecurity has been a relatively bright spot right within the the trump ditch us definitely with credit to the trump administration has been at odds with the work season has been trying to do with you know misinformation that they have put out and so has been battling that directly through a rumor control website. Seaside director chris cribs has his own personal. Twitter account has been at odds with that yes. They've been a definite bright spot In terms of trying to get critical infrastructure more secure trying to share information with the private sector about vulnerabilities and especially with election officials. Do you feel like this is an agency that will remain empowered under a biden administration looking forward. Yes definitely i mean. Under the obama administration obama's was the first administration that really made cybersecurity. A top level national security concern and that got strengthened with the creation of seaside under the trump administration see so was stood up by congress as a standalone agency. Signaling the importance of cybersecurity And that won't change under biden. At all. Kim zetter a cyber security journalist and author reuters reported last week that the white house had asked cease to stop aggressively. Debunking election. disinformation and now for some related links. The washington post has a piece from last week about how the biden administration is likely to make funding for election security. Those efforts were consistently blocked over the last four years by senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell but the post argues that auditable voting machines with paper trails might be more necessary palatable to republicans now that trump has created so much doubt about voting systems and election. Security experts have been calling for those measures for years too. So win win. That story has more reading about biden's likely cybersecurity priorities. It's at marketplace tech dot org along with a pair of stories about how evidently deadly pandemic is an opportunity that draws out the worst people in the world first militias hackers who are attacking school districts demanding ransom posting sensitive information about children online. When they don't get it so that's a special place in hell kind of story and last week. Microsoft put up a blog post warning again about a tax on companies that are working back scenes and treatments for covid nineteen the attacks appear to be coming from russia and north korea the blog post called them unconscionable and said they should be condemned by all civilized society. The post also pointed to ransomware attacks on hospitals and healthcare companies in september. A woman in germany died at a hospital that was under cyberattack because her treatment was delayed officials. Say it's likely the first known death resulting from ransomware attack.

Social media censorship in Egypt targets women on TikTok

"Has its sights on tick talk. It's cracking down on users arresting and charging a group of women with a range of tic tac enabled crimes from harming family values to inciting prostitution. Reporter Jod reporter Dad, Kaleel has our story. At least nine women have been arrested for their tic tac videos. But if you look through their accounts, it's hard to see why. And focus most ofit here. There's Henning has, um, talking about the story of Venus and Adonis and Adela doing what social Media influencers do Giveaway iPhones life living room doing, But mostly the accounts of the Egyptian women who's been arrested and jailed are full of dancing to Arabic pop songs in that tic tac style feet, planted emoting with your eyebrows and gesticulating. What they're doing is basically what everyone as 1000 social media, just singing and dancing and Andi thing and nothing as if you would dance. In Egyptian wedding. For example, some of Husaini is with the International Service for Human Rights based in Geneva, Switzerland. She says. What distinguishes this group of Egyptians is that they're from working class or middle class backgrounds and that their women or girls, you have social media influencers who come for a teeth, backgrounds or upper middle class or rich classes and injured who would post the same type of content. But would not be targeted because that is sort of permitted within their social class. But why these women are working class women they and they have stepped out of what is permitted for them because they were dancing and singing on tech talk. They were charged under a cyber crime law passed in 2018 Yes, Mean Omar, A researcher at the top here Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington, says that the law is vague when it comes to defining what's legal. And what isn't. It was written using very broad terms that could be very widely interpreted and criminalizing a lot of acts that are Originally considered as personal freedom. Looking at it. You would see that anything you might post on social media. Anything that you may use, the Internet could be criminalized under this very wide umbrella. Egypt cybercrime laws, part of a larger effort by the government to increase surveillance of online activities as Tic TAC became more popular during the pandemic. Prosecutors started looking there too, says Omar. The state is simply arresting whoever says anything that criticizes its policy its laws. It's practices, even if it's just joking. It's not even allowed. But this isn't just about political dissent. Yes, mean Omar points. In the case of mental Abdel Aziz, a 17 year old. One day men made a live video on Facebook. She had her face awfully bruised, and she was stating that she was raped. And she was asking for help. The police asked me to come in. When she did, Omar says they looked at her tech talk account and decided she was inciting debauchery and harming family values in Egypt. Over the summer, There was a series of rape and sexual assault accusations by Egyptian women. They got a lot of attention. One case was against a group of well connected men. Women in Egypt were shocked but not surprised by what they were seeing online, says someone who's Amy in Egypt. Sexual violence on violence in this woman is systematic is part ofthe daily life off of women and to be sexually harass women are often discouraged from reporting sexual harassment in Egypt. So when prosecutors started investigating the accused in that high profile case, it looked like a real progress. The state run National Council for Women even encourage victims and witnesses to come forward. Oh, yes mean, Omar says it did not go well. Somehow, the prosecution decided to a charge the witnesses once again. Egyptian authorities looked at women's social media accounts and then investigated the women for promoting homosexuality, drug use, inciting debauchery and publishing false news. Omar says one of the witnesses who was arrested is an American citizen. All these information were used against them and then pro state media how let's wait in. Husseini says that when they profile the women in the TIC tac case, the message was clear. You have the Egyptian me they're basically, you know, really sensational headlines, Putting the photos off the women Not not not blurred using, you know, focus that have sex it Ian, for example, while using their names, publishing the investigations that are supposed to be confidential. Social media has played an important role in Egyptian politics. In 2011 crowds toppled the regime of military dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Inside the Data of Loyalty

"To run the enrich loyalty program at Malaysia Airlines ominous. No longer doing that but has done that. And a lot of other bits in the space before and agreed I believe I have several beers in Singapore maybe the most expensive production episode ever but agreed to sit and chat a little bit today about some of the stuff you've seen in the industry over the years and sort of where it's going on so welcome thank you go for. You had to look on your face. Ace We're GONNA say something hell. It was just an added to the introduction. There were a bunch of a bunch of guys who we've we've all been in. Senior management allies will run out of career. Sixteen or the world of experience there. It's kind of cool to share was happening in different parts of the world because we worked in in South East Asia would never ever woken mold. America it's good that you bring that up because we've had these conversations at conferences never in North American that I think about it but we don't have something to you in London. Asia sort of China China. Yeah we've had some of these chance but how different is loyalty. Globally like is are there people like in Europe. That are listen to this podcast. Every week. It'd be like talking about. We have to get America. Also say that about us but when we talk about largest offer is is it. Is it really that different. I think so. I mean I think most of us are going to send. The Lati- is traditionally is credit. Cards programmes elite status. Airline lounges. Sort of stuff is the is the shiny cards. It's the mouse. And especially North America's Israeli driven by interchange of the banks which is not regulated down like it is in a lot of Southeast Asian countries Europe's regulated down. And so just I understand. That's the one nice. Try Card my Visa Card. The merchant pays to three or four percent to the bank. The bank gives me some of that back in terms of points shepherd and in the rest of the world world outside North America. Basically that you can't get percent you get two different countries different breaches your point. Four percent which is is virtually nothing Malaysia. where I live is the one percent Australia? Singapore where we are now is is is not regulated yet so a lot of that drives the credit card and the bank loyalty usage airline miles with the bank the more likely to fly the more invested in the program for Sunday. You're building a new Mazda balanced pasta than you. Otherwise would if you adjust flying so it's catching people people that are not necessarily frequent flyers maybe consensus so this is really big in America. Where your ability to earn miles is greatly increased compared into other regions therefore the way you look at the way in Iraq with a part on the way you fly the whole? The Monchique is different to Southeast Asia. Especially taxation his Asia low cost airlines has ruled supreme in Asia Asia. Massive is a very strong radio program could be better. I think After better you sort of made the argument that if you've got the loyal customers loyal Gio Brandon anyways. You've got you've got the so you've got the service that they like you've got the rap structure they like and you're in theory chief does the points matter Devil Delta another airline where people people generally like the product a lot Ted. This pretty good operationally. You can rely on the good strong brandon pretty solid. They have drastic changes in the market. And it's like you fly lie Delta Gouzer Goodell on going pretty good always law towers. There's American Hilas. The loyalty program is kind of pulling passengers passengers along. It's it's the it's the leading product I have it's issues and so you can you can you can get over some delays. You can get over. You know bad food you can get over. Average lounges. If there's an awesome those who program because that's kind of making you forget things. Yeah it's a bit of a different strategy fully and in southeast Azazel follow cost airlines. Do they need to program. I mean they they will do deals with banks gala points and cash into the business high margin cash as well local state aligns margin news. Everything is so co Grande Caccia. They look and feel of instances and automatic debit cards BRANCHVILLE. It's interesting I mean. Here's Singapore here in Malaysia about Malaysia. Okay 'cause it's interesting that there is a debit card with the regulated regulated interchange. And they looking for one mile per dully spend it might be get this cod And so again in relation to the Asia he paid of has for two prepaid mastercard. And when you use pay day you get like the discounts on baggage and transaction fees on the website is different top of okay. So you're not you're loyalty isn't the points it's direct it's branding than its direct discount on these stuff should be a frequent traveler. Okay so yeah yeah. I mean I could argue that especially in this market or what. I what I think of as the el-sisi market in Asia which may be completely wrong. The value of free checked bags EXC is greater than the value of points. I could collect for our future flight when I bought my tickets around. I flew from Hanoi. Kale to see you Days ago I I paid a hundred and twenty dollars all into that ticket which was expensive. You know an area checkoff whatever three and a half hours probably barely covered the house but it was eighty eighty dollars in on about seventy five or eighty dollars for the fair and then had to check a bag. That was really heavy. So twenty five dollars for the bag ten dollars or eight dollars for the seats maybe lesson. I couldn't get into the hot seat but not the actual offseason by eight dollars for the seats farmers row to not bulkhead not baulk road to so they're hot hot seats. So you're at the front of the plane but they don't have after legroom. Save costs a possible fast off in an empty metal and I appreciate your sh sh- blessed the meals so in fact I had better food. The British business zero to two meals on Airasia of another ten dollars so I think that altogether got me to my one twenty-five but if my backseat was my half and I was saving ten dollars goes on every flight I took. That would be more valuable to me than the points. I could have earned on an eighty dollars ticket right Earn rates that you get in the states with five dollar. Eighty four hundred points nominally. That's about four dollars of points. Maybe six you get a good redemption. I get ten every time for half price bag. Actually better value. Being Loyalty Program is revenue earning as well and it does a good job of keeping loyal to Air Asia specifically not even us and our partners and and and third party whatever. So That's interesting. It's sort of goes back to the. Is it really that different here. And we've come a long way around and say maybe you're

Rare protests in Egypt call for president to step down

"Well. Let's look finally on today's news panel at Egypt. There have been protests all weekend in several cities demanding the resignation or President Abdel Fattah El Sisi the demonstrations were summoned online by the Egyptian businessmen and acting to Mohammed Ali currently in self-imposed exile in Spain protests are to understate the case wildly discouraged in Egypt and hundreds of arrests have been reported along with incidences of teargassing. Mr Ali has called for an even bigger repeat performance this coming Friday. Yes meant these protests very very far from from Arab spring size maybe a few thousand entire square may be a few hundred in Suez and elsewhere but are they given the risk you are running when nutro to take to the streets of CDC's Egypt. They significant. I think so definitely and I think what we're seeing is people testing the waters. It's the little tickle the back of your throat throat before you know a full blown flu or whatever it might be. I think what's really fascinating is is also the fact that this was started by somebody who's outside the country and by somebody who people have decided to pay attention to and the similarity with the Arab spring is that yes social media has played a big role oh but given the fact and I think you talked about it here on the briefing las week that Egypt has been in a state of deep depression really like the psyches of the the people I was there earlier this year I've got family who is still there and people so when you fought the like for a revolution time time and time again and after the rabbi master and also to to not only discouraged effectively banned to have people decide decide to go out on the streets again and decide to take that risk and yes be arrested but continue to push. I'm really interested in seeing what will happen on Friday because has called for millions watch something similar to what we saw in Sudan over the past few months and I also think what has happened in Sudan has probably had some some sort of like residual impact on people people in Egypt to sort of say. You know what let's let's try this one more time. What do you think Robin is potentially the beginning of I guess Arab Spring v two and that that's it's not an insignificant factor that Yasmin identifies the fact that they if they look next door to Sudan and think if Omar Al Bashir of all people can be unloaded by loud scale public protests who did just seem like an absolutely permanent fixture then anything is possible. What one of the most interesting things that struck me watching happened. was how young young a lot of these demonstrators were. They were children in twenty eleven. The Arab uprisings is vertical them. were before these people people become adults. They don't really remember first of all the excitement and enthusiasm and then the absolute horror in the way in which it all went by. I mean see you see I. I was going to use the word murdered. CC's forces killed hundreds and hundreds if not more than a thousand protesters on the streets of Cairo and 2013 but these people on the streets now don't remember. I'm I'm I'm interested in the says. She thinks there is a Sudan connection because I was wondering about that. That's not also forget Hong Kong of course the courage of the people of Hong Kong is very infectious and I think it does it does lead to people saying they can do it. We can do it too but to answer your question directly. Will it lead to a new series of uprisings in the way that we saw in twenty eleven. I don't think thanks and just finally on this. Is there anything if this does become a thing if he does get large numbers in the streets this coming Friday. Is there anything that the western media should have learned about covering events like this that they didn't learn during the Arab spring because what struck majoring the Arab spring and I was there I was in Egypt just before word happened but not afterwards that I think it's a common failing of media to get drawn to reporting to people who they can get on with the new remind them of themselves so for Wilder Egypt was getting portrayed as this nation of hip educated middle class well-dressed young kids who spoke English and those people are all there but they are not even close to being doing most of Egypt and I think this is the challenge with reporting in regions where English isn't the first language and where actually you've got a huge differential into a huge gap between those who are able to speak English in our western educated and so on and the majority of the country which might be rural might have speaking different languages and so on I think generally and what Sudan Sudan did quite well I think was she looked to the voices that amplifying and translating the voices on the ground and to try to not just look for the chances because in and yes it does take a little bit more time and a little bit more work but I think if you have an immediate answer. That's probably not always the best answer. That's that's probably not always the whole truth and it might give you some of the truth but certainly a little bit. More digging is helpful. There are two other things street. Protesters are too many reporters forget first. Do you see the people on the streets you don't see the people on the streets most revolutions fail on

"To Egypt now, and the country's parliament is voting on a Bill of sweeping constitutional changes this week that would increase president of the Fateh Al power and allow him to rule until twenty thirty members of parliamentary expected to overwhelmingly confirmed the Bill which will trigger a referendum the proposal forms, which were moved swiftly through committee hearings and parliamentary debates would grant presidency control over the judiciary increase the military's political power and extend presidential terms to six years to Timothy called us who is a non resident fellow at the institute for Middle East policy in Cairo. Welcome to the program. The voting is on the way, I wonder if there is any doubt whatsoever that it will pulse, and and it will trigger a referendum. It looks like less than two dozen parliamentary will vote against it. There's really no there's no substantial opposition within the parliament, which is largely rubber-stamp for the presidency. Anyways. How is president? El-sisi in Egypt. It's hard to say with certainty, but what we can we do know is that his popularity has been in decline for years, the austerity measures that have been undertaken as well as the collapse of the value of the currency has put a lot of people under a lot of economic strain. And while there was some polling on his favorability ratings in twenty sixteen. It was showing a downward trend at a pretty fast pace due to a lot of the inflation that was happening then and that's only much worse in the last three years. So. There. People are much more vocal in personal conversations about their frustrations the president than they had been the past. And I think that I think that in reality his popularity is under a lot of strength popularity's under strain. And is that then the context why he is doing what he's doing? About. Well. I think that he's rushing this through for a couple of different reasons. One his popularity almost certainly will take a further hit as fuel subsidies in electric city subsidies or reduced further with the with the knock on effect that will have there have also been suggestions that he's concerned that. President Trump isn't reelected or somehow leaves office that support or complicity from Washington could be less guaranteed going forward. So we like to wrap this up while that's still well, that's not an issue when you when you talk about the fact that people are having conversations in private about disatisfaction. It's quite clear that since he's been in power dissent has been pretty much erotica -ted. Dissenters largely is is largely out of the question people who do express it. Oftentimes, find themselves in prison or van from travel or have their assets frozen have cases, pending against them is very dangerous to criticize the government publicly. The media is either owned by the state or more or less coopted by so that to whatever extent he is popular still cells in the context of a total vacuum of criticism of his policies and practices. The public is really that have an open debate about any of this interesting that all of this should happen when autocrats in neighboring Sudan and Jerry have fallen into popular protest true. And I think you see that the protesters in those countries have learned a lot from what they saw in Egypt into Dan.

"There's president the organization Human Rights Watch says that they're sixty thousand political prisoners that you're holding today as we sit here. I don't a film the meeting. I don't know where they got that figure. I said there are no political prisoners in Egypt. Whenever there is a minority trying to impose their extremist ideology, we have to intervene, regardless of their numbers that was gypsum President Abdel Fatah el-sisi. Speaking to Scott Pelley on sixty minutes did anything David come out of this interview. That was new this kind of deepen the existing perception of president L C C. What was the impact of this interview just to mention another rule of thumb since you laid one elderly? I think if you're not there a thorough -tarian leader. And you're going on sixty minutes, you should expect some pretty tough questions. No, maybe he doesn't watch on Sunday evenings. But I watch some of the old Mike Wallace interviews and figure that out. So I don't know what he expected from that interview. I think it's it's a segment in which if you watch it you will. Feel sympathetic toward el-sisi and his record on human rights, and there's some real questioning in the segment of whether the US should give as much aid to Egypt under CeCe as we do now. So I think it there was no news broken in that interview. But it was something that if Americans are tuning in, they'll have perhaps not very, you know, pleasant view of who CCA's interest. Oh, go ahead. Joyce, but as a tactic, I mean, this is difficult authoritarian playbook. I mean, you know, for for a guy who has gone far to limit freedom of expression and social media debate in Egypt. It would be expected from him to to send his officials and contact CBS and say, we're not comfortable do not air the interview. I think to what David is saying he did not realize his actually addressing CBS and the move completely backfired. But, but if you know, you look at the broader picture just very much fits with with his. Tactics. And how he how he deals with his own media, and that's very unfortunate. Although, Sean, it's it's kinda fascinating. You've got this el-sisi interview. Which is just the latest. You had Norah O'Donnell who interviewed Mohammed bin Salman on sixty minutes not too long ago. And that interview got some criticism as kind of a way to sort of sanitize image that classic bike Wallace interview where he interviewed I told the Khameini and asked him about Anwar Sadat calling him. Forgive me imam. His words not mine. A lunatic. So there's kind of place that these interviews have with these kinds of authoritarian leaders who are trying to build a bridge to the west. But there've been so many of them you'd think you didn't on the playbook by now. Yeah. The other side of the playbook is you know to be a dictator. You gotta have plenty of ego. And you see this you've seen this through the dictate the through the decades dictators thinking that they can be different this time around that they can take on sixty minutes in a way. No one else. Can I think there's one other? Interesting tidbit in the story, something that we the one of the presidential tweets from from Donald Trump that we miss this week was praising el-sisi for opening the biggest cathedral in the Middle East this week. And he said president el-sisi is moving his country to a more inclusive future. That's clearly a different one from the the future that el-sisi was confronted with sixty minutes. And let's talk about the border wall. Biggest story here in the US for sure there was the president's mid week address to the nation his address from the Oval Office to try to gain more support for that wall. We've been hearing about how the speech went down here. Dave lawler. I wonder what your sense is of how it was received. Elsewhere. Whether there even was an audience beyond the US for the speech, or whether this was kind of mostly intended for domestic consumption. I think it was intended for domestic consumption there. There are some really quite stirring pictures of migrants on the other side of the border watching this speech. Live on on laptops, and gathering around. And seeing it an end, I think it was al-jazeera interviewed a few of them..
