Treasury Secretary Warren? Progressives Line Up to Press Their Agenda on Biden

first_img– Advertisement – “I believe that if Joe Biden is in the White House, it changes the dynamic where people know that there will be a president who will sign these things into law,” Ms. Jayapal said. “And that will help us a lot.”“That’s the question: Are Republicans going to continue to be enablers of an outrageous Trump agenda even when he’s out of the White House?” she added. “Or are they actually going to start speaking for their constituents?” And without enough Democratic allies in the Senate, there is almost no chance that the chamber will pass even the agenda that Mr. Biden supported in the run-up to the election, such as lowering the eligibility age for Medicare to 60 from 65.“If Mitch McConnell was ultimately to control the Senate, it would dramatically lower the ceiling of what’s possible legislatively and increase the urgency of appointing good people to the executive branch to make things happen there,” said Adam Green, a co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a sister organization of the Progressive Change Institute, and an ally of Ms. Warren’s.Progressives have not abandoned hope of passing legislation, either, even if a Republican Senate makes doing so much more difficult. They are optimistic that there is broadly palatable legislation that the Senate may still pass, including a coronavirus relief bill, a $15 federal minimum wage and investment in infrastructure.- Advertisement –center_img The database, which now has from 500 to 600 names, covers everything from cabinet positions to under secretary posts in more obscure executive-branch offices and bureaus, like the president of the Export-Import Bank and the director of the Patent and Trademark Office. The group hopes to deliver the list to the Biden transition team by the end of the week.Progressives recognize that their work on appointments and policy may be much harder if there is a Republican Senate, as appears increasingly likely. It may not confirm appointments to key government posts whom Republicans view as too far left, a course of action that Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, has already suggested he would pursue.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Sand Festival in Nin – A magic that arises and disappears, but remains in the unforgettable memory of tourists

first_imgThe 4th Sand Festival was organized by the Tourist Board of the City of Nin  which took place this year on the sand banks of the Queen’s Beach and Ždrijac Beach The long natural sandy beaches of Nina are one of its trademarks and an impressive image that is remembered by all who have been here at least once, and the total length of Nin beaches is as much as 8 kilometers, while the longest and most famous among them is 3 kilometers long, sandy Queen’s Beach.The Sand Festival is so logical and a phenomenal tourist story that is a great addition to the Nin story. So amazed by the beauty of Nin beaches, tourists from various countries together with residents and sculptors built imaginative sand sculptures on the theme of Nin motifs, although on the beaches you could later see various imaginary characters, animals and other interesting sand sculptures.This year’s 4th Sand Festival, conceived as an exhibition on the theme of Nin motifs on the beaches of Nin, attracted the largest number of participants so far. The weather conditions were suitable for an early morning stay on the beach, so the sun lured a multitude of participants who came to try their hand at building from sand – a magic that arises and disappears. The sand festival this year was led by the expert guidance of artists, sculptors and restorers from Zagreb Dejana Brdarić and Krešimir Valentak and artists Boris Žuliček from Lepoglava, who were also members of the jury. This year, all generations of participants competed – from the youngest to the slightly older, individually and in groups, and created a variety of imaginative sculptures:  towers and castles, motifs of the town of Nin such as a bridge, Nin’s creepers, the unique Nin church, then inscriptions of the town of Nin with features of romance and historical figures of Nin such as Gregory of Nin, Prince Branimir and others The families of the builders spent an unforgettable Sunday morning on the beach playing and socializing, and the adults also aroused children’s creativity. And there is the whole magic of this story, parents spent quality time with their children, a moment that is unforgettable, and the memory remains eternal because everything is captured by a shared photo.Building sand towers with children is an emotion and an experience to remember. And when we add other phenomenal sculptures by artists to the whole story, we have a great tourist story and content. It is these “little” unforgettable experiences that we remember the most and that is the essence of tourism.Quality content is the key to success. Sun and sea alone are not enough.The Sand Festival has great potential for future development, but it also needs the help of other participants, such as the Zadar County Tourist Board and the CNTB. Smaller environments do not have the human and financial capacity to raise events to a much higher level, and this is where the real support of the system should come into play. We did not give declarative support in the context of the type “3.000 kuna of support as sponsors”, but seriously studied the development of the event, in this case, in cooperation with the Tourist Board of Nina,It is always easy to find an excuse, but it is precisely such surveys that show the strength or powerlessness of a system that should recognize potentials and give so important real professional and market support for the day-to-day development of a tourism product. Of course, where there really is potential for the development of tourist events in TOP events, and in Nin this is certainly the case.last_img read more

Florida man charged in mass shooting plot after investigators find weapons in his home

first_imgA Florida man has been charged with plotting to commit a mass shooting after authorities found that he lied about having any weapons in his apartment.Officials were alerted to 25-year-old Tristan Scott Wix, after his ex-girlfriend showed them several text messages from him where he claimed he wanted to be known as the most prolific killer in American history and that he already had a place in mind.“When you look at this kid’s background, he is the profile of a shooter,” Volusia County Sheriff Michael Chitwood said. “He lost his job, he lost his girlfriend, he’s depressed, he’s got the ammunition and he wants to become known for being the most prolific killer in American history.”When Wix was arrested on Friday, he originally told authorities that he did not have any weapons and that he was only fascinated with mass shootings, however, when investigators, searched his apartment they found a .22-caliber hunting rifle and 400 rounds of ammunition.Wix is currently being held at the Volusia County Branch Jail without bond. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.last_img read more

Can We Fix The Problem Of Unreasonable Tech Searches At The Border?

first_imgIt happened on the border.In May 2010, Pascal Abidor, an Islamic studies doctoral candidate at McGill University, was traveling from Montreal to New York City when he was stopped in the tiny border town of Champlain, New York, by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents. Abidor, who is of dual American and French citizenship, and is not a Muslim, triggered agents’ worst fears. When they turned on Abidor’s computer, they found pictures of Hamas rallies; thumbing through his passport, agents saw stamps from past trips to Jordan and Lebanon.The pictures were part of Abidor’s doctoral dissertation, the travel part of his research. But that didn’t matter to the agents. Abidor says he was handcuffed, taken off the train, and detained in a cell while agents interrogated him about his belongings and his interest in Islam. Hours later he was freed. But his laptop remained in custody for 11 days. When it was returned, Abidor later reported, there was evidence that his personal research files, and even photos and chats with his girlfriend, had all been opened. In September of 2010, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on his behalf. Now Abidor is suing the U.S. government on grounds of civil rights violations in a case that has become the face of defending the right to digital privacy and due process at America’s borders. “The government asserts that when it comes to electronic devices, people who cross the border have no rights,” Abidor’s lawyer Catherine Crump said in a 2010 interview. Now more than two years later, the Federal District Court opinion could have a lasting impact on the how and why border agents search electronic devices – especially when there is no suspicion of illegal activity. What’s At Stake In the wake of 9/11, the government has touted national security as a means to wield extremely broad border search power (here is the Department of Homeland Security’s official search policy). Although the Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable search and seizure, U.S. courts have been clear that its protections simply don’t apply at the border. In the name of national security and fighting terrorism and crime, border agents operate pretty much carte blanche.Apart from the hassles and humiliations, here’s the problem: American citizens are losing their civil liberties in the name of national security. Travelers keep detailed personal and business data on their devices (which would otherwise require a warrant to search), and letting agents paw through potentially confidential and sensitive info is a real concern to legitimate travelers and the companies for which they work. A prime example is another case the ACLU is arguing, House v. Napolitano, wherein computer programer David House’s laptop, camera and USB drive were confiscated for 49 days because of his association with the Bradley Manning Support Network (Manning allegedly leaked thousands of military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks).The feds tried to have the case thrown out, but a judge in the Massachussetts Federal District Court said that the government’s border search power did not supersede House’s First Amendment rights, a ruling that could set the stage for courts limiting how the government administers border searches.Playing The NumbersFrom October 2011 to the end of August, 2012, nearly 12 million travelers endured secondary security screenings after entering the U.S., according to the Department of Homeland Security. The ACLU contends that between October 2008 and June 2010, more than 6,600 people had their electronic devices searched as they crossed U.S. borders.The United States Customs and Border Protection says 36,000 people are pulled aside for secondary searches every day; of that number about a dozen are screened for their technology. That adds up to some 5,000 electronic device screenings a year, with nosy agents pilfering through travelers’ personal information. And while border crossing violations typically elicit thoughts of criminals and drug trafficking, that’s not usually at issue in electronic searches. “Why do you lose all your rights if you step in an airport (or over a border),” asks Matthew Tollin, a Harvard-trained attorney and founder of wireLawyer. “The current setup doesn’t make any sense.” There needs to be a reasonable suspicion to check someone’s laptop or smartphone, says Tollin, a designation he characterizes as “much lower than probable cause,” but a lot different “than not needing any basis at all.”Fixing The ProblemUpcoming court decisions in the Abidor and House cases are the most likely way to limit digital searces by border agents. But privacy advocates are looking at other avenues as well.One approach is to raise awareness of the issue, says Tollin. This means setting up websites, lodging complaints with groups like the ACLU, creating grassroots campaigns and hounding representatives and lawmakers. If Congress gets enough pressure from constituents, it’s possible that it could draft bills to change U.S. policy. But it’s hard to imagine passage of any laws that could be construed as soft on national security and terrorism.Another longshot possibility would be an executive order from the President. Obama could create an executive order to set clearer precedents for search and seizure at the border. “It’s a simple matter of tweaking the standard,” Tollin said, noting that the Obama is committed to peeling back some of the civil liberty abuses of prior administrations. But unless it becomes a priority, Presidential action remains unlikely.“It’s a tough change,” Tollin admits. “Everybody understands screening laptops for C-4 explosives. Everybody understands it’s a safety matter getting on a plane. The question here is when you turn the computer on and start reading somebody’s personal files, snooping around for stuff you don’t have the right to do, it’s a huge invasion of privacy. There’s plenty of things they can have that are not criminal, that are not terrorist, that they just don’t want the government to know.”That’s one reason many travelers now choose to store sensitive files not on their devices, but on cloud-based systems. That way, the data is as needed but not available for review by border agents or anyone else who has access to your device. Even if a device is confiscated, travelers can still access their secure data.Photo courtesy Shutterstock.
