IBM Takes Cybersecurity Training on the Road - The New York Times
Two years ago, IBM opened one of the nation’s first commercial cybersecurity ranges in Cambridge, Mass., to let companies practice responding to simulated cyberattacks. It describes the experience as “a game of Clue mixed with a Disney roller-coaster ride.”

(5) Politics - Quora
The Bottom Line -- It is difficult to avoid a conclusion based on measurable data that conservative governance as practiced in America suffers from a fundamental flaw. In nearly every metric examined, conservative governments have not performed as well as more liberal governments. Even in issues of fiscal governance, conservative governments have emphasized low taxes and low debt, but have not produced healthy economies, either before the Great Recession or in the recovery. For issues of social services, budgets have been cut most severely in conservative states, but this has not produced the desired economic benefit. On the contrary, liberal states have produced economies that are more vigorous and have demonstrated higher productivity.

Billionaires Are the Leading Cause of Climate Change | GQ
"Even today, after literally decades of radical libertarian billionaires fostering disbelief in climate change and skepticism about the government, three out of five Americans believe climate change affects their local community. That number climbs to two-thirds on the coasts. Even the Trump administration now admits that climate change is real, but their response to it is dead-eyed acceptance. If popular support actually influenced public policy, there would have been more decisive action from the U.S. government years ago. But the fossil-fuel industry's interests are too well-insulated by the mountains of cash that have been converted into lobbyists, industry-shilling Republicans and Democrats, and misinformation. To them, the rest of the world is just kindling. "

How much damage can Saudi Arabia do to the global economy? | World news | The Guardian
He said Riyadh was weighing up 30 measures designed to put pressure on the US if it were to impose sanctions over the disappearance and presumed murder of Jamal Khashoggi inside the country’s Istanbul consulate. These would include an oil production cut that could drive prices from around $80 (£60) a barrel to more than $400, more than double the all-time high of $147.27 reached in 2008.

The End of Snap & Tesla | The Daily | Gartner L2

"When Elon Musk committed blatant market manipulation (“funding secured”) for the sole purpose of scratching his id, he waved his middle finger in the face of our system. The excuses we make for “innovators” are unhealthy and un-American. Many are drafting off the perversion of having a criminal gang in the White House. But the US, more than a nation of innovators, is a nation of laws. We benefit, every day, from the notion that justice is blind. The Edison of our generation (and he is a genius) stuck his chin out and dared us to hit him. The SEC found its voice and complied."
