Hacking the Russian Power Grid

Hacking the Russian Power Grid

2019-06-1800:28:1725

A New York Times investigation found that the United States is actively infiltrating Russia’s electric power grid. We look at what that means for the future of cyberwarfare. Guest: David E. Sanger, a national security correspondent for The New York Times and the author of “The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber Age.” For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading: The cyberattacks on Russia’s power grid are intended partly as a warning, and partly to be poised to act if a major conflict broke out between Washington and Moscow.In response to The Times’s report, the Kremlin warned that American attacks could escalate into cyberwar.
In Hong Kong, hundreds of thousands remain in the streets, even after city officials said they would suspend the contentious extradition bill that prompted the demonstrations in the first place. We look at why the protesters still don’t trust their government. Guest: Austin Ramzy, who covers Hong Kong for The New York Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading: If the shelving of the extradition bill and an apology from Hong Kong’s leader were aimed at mollifying the protesters, the measures seem to have had the opposite effect.The bill’s suspension is China’s biggest concession to public pressure in President Xi Jinping’s nearly seven years as leader of the country.Here are photographs of the protests, which are some of the largest in the history of Hong Kong.
Across Europe, populists are saying that it’s not democracy they aim to discard, but liberalism. To end our series, we returned to Germany, the country at the heart of a liberal Europe, to see if the rejection of liberalism had also taken hold there.Guests: Katrin Bennhold, the Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times, and Clare Toeniskoetter and Lynsea Garrison, producers for “The Daily,” went to an election party in Berlin for the far-right party Alternative for Germany. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading: Germany’s political establishment looks increasingly fragile after the European Parliament elections.As anti-Semitic crime rises in Germany, new forms of old hatreds are stoking fear for the nation’s estimated 200,000 Jews.Katrin Bennhold offers her main takeaway after 10 days on the road: “Europe cannot be taken for granted. But neither can its demise.”
In Poland, a nationalist party has been in power for four years. We went to Warsaw, the capital, and Gdansk, the birthplace of a movement that brought down Communism, to see how this government has changed democratic institutions. Guests: Katrin Bennhold, the Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times, and Clare Toeniskoetter and Lynsea Garrison, producers for “The Daily,” spoke with Jaroslaw Kurski, a newspaper editor; Magdalena Adamowicz, a politician and the widow of a liberal mayor who was murdered; and Danuta Bialooka-Kostenecka, an official with the governing Law and Justice party. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading: Poland’s nationalists aren’t seeking to take the country out of the European Union, but to take the European Union out of Poland.With national elections approaching, both the government and its opponents have sought to shape the country’s historical memory.Poland’s governing party has made opposition to gay rights a cornerstone of its campaigning, escalating fears that the divisive rhetoric could translate to violence.

Part 3: ‘Italy First’

In Italy, hard-right populists have moved from the fringes to become part of the national government. Now, the country is on the front lines of a nationalist resurgence in Europe. To understand why, we spent a day with Susanna Ceccardi, a rising star of the far-right League party. Guest Host: Katrin Bennhold, the Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times, and Clare Toeniskoetter and Lynsea Garrison, producers for “The Daily,” hit the campaign trail with Ms. Ceccardi in Tuscany.

Part 2: The French Rebellion

2019-06-1100:30:4859

President Emmanuel Macron of France had been viewed as the next leader of a liberal Europe. But when the Yellow Vest movement swept the country, protesters took to the streets, rejecting him as elitist and questioning the vision of Europe that he stood for. In Part 2 of our series, we traveled to a city in northern France to hear from some of these protesters. Guest Host: Katrin Bennhold, the Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times, and Clare Toeniskoetter and Lynsea Garrison, producers for “The Daily,” met with Yellow Vest demonstrators in Reims. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.Background reading:For some followers of the Yellow Vest movement, Europe embodies everything they have come to hate: shuttered factories, stagnating wages and a young banker-turned-president in favor of deeper integration.In elections last month for the European Parliament, the far-right leader Marine Le Pen won in the rural, depressed and deindustrialized areas of northern, south-central and eastern France that gave rise to the Yellow Vest revolt.
Part 1: The Battle for Europe

Part 1: The Battle for Europe

2019-06-1000:24:0980

The decades-long plan to stitch together countries and cultures into the European Union was ultimately blamed for two crises: mass migration and crippling debt. Together, those events contributed to a wave of nationalism across Europe. In a five-part series this week, we take a look at some of the movements aiming to disrupt the E.U. from within. Guest: Katrin Bennhold, the Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.Background reading:Before the European Parliament elections last month, Katrin Bennhold and producers of “The Daily” set out on a 10-day trip to find out what Europe means to Europeans today.The results of the elections indicated that the struggle over the future direction of the European Union would only intensify.
The police identified a suspect in a double murder after combing through DNA profiles on a website designed to connect family members. We look at what his trial will tell us about the future of genetic genealogy in solving crimes. Guests: Heather Murphy, a New York Times reporter, spoke with CeCe Moore, a genetic genealogist, and Curtis Rogers, a creator of the genealogy website GEDMatch. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. Background reading: The case of William Earl Talbott II, who is accused of killing a Canadian couple in Washington State 32 years ago, could result in legal precedents involving the use of genetic genealogy techniques by law enforcement.
A year after police used a genetic database to help identify a suspect in the Golden State Killer case, the same technique has been used to arrest dozens of people. Now, for the first time, one of those cases is headed to trial. In Part 1 of a two-part series, we look at the tool that is transforming law enforcement and testing the limits of privacy. Guests: Heather Murphy, a New York Times reporter, spoke with Curtis Rogers, a creator of the genealogy website GEDMatch; Peter Headley, a detective with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department; and Barbara Rae-Venter, a genetic genealogist. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.Background reading:Using a technique that relies on DNA submitted to online genealogy sites, investigators have solved dozens of violent crimes.

Ironic how he said we might prefer to meddle in another country's election than end up with a Nicolas Maduro. The Russians meddled in ours specifically to give us an American version of Maduro (except friendly to them).

when he called the government employees an elite part of the population that must have been tongue in boot, because this episode is all about the state's incompetence.

What fuels the "wars", lookup the defiition of it first, are the strangers to the csse that listen to folks that hurt out there for one or other reason and pin this to politics. Look at the parts that the government did positive, look at the still comunist courts systems that they try to change the benefits to single parents, corruption that the "liberals" bring, just dont have a merit to come and talk to Jarek or Magdalena and determine the state... pushing the impressions, not looking at people that work hard and try to make a living there

Just finished the series and reading the previous comments. I agree, well done, and I realize constraints would prevent you from visiting every country/region. My concern is one that was highlighted in the piece and is a growing concern in the US with the rise of right-wing nationalism and that's the plight of minorities. I am a part of so many different minority groups that are under attack, in my opinion. I am Hispanic of Puerto Rican descent with many relatives on the island as well as on the US mainland. I am gay, legally married to another gentleman. I was hopeful that LGBTQIA protections and considerations were growing post Obergefell but that optimisim is waning greatly. I am disabled and on SSD which I paid into for decades yet now there is an attack on SS and I am being labeled a moocher by those who would cut or take away altogether my benefits. I am a veteran who lives with horrible pain not from combat but from a severe auto accident which left me in a wheelchair. I have been stable on narcotic pain medication for decades which manages my pain but in no way eliminates. I have played by the rules, take it as prescribed, never OD on it, sold it, given it away, and now it's arbitrarily being taken away because of the "opioid crisis." I am being punished for what others have done and that puts me in that minority. The VA's drive to push ALL veterans off pain medication is driving the opioid crisis because it forces them to seek street drugs with no guarantees of what's in it or how strong (or weak) it is. The media is so focused on the deaths by street drugs they completely ignore what's driving responsible people like me to have to seek them. I am in that ignored group, a minority. Yes, America is governed by the majority but it behooves the majority to respect and preserve the rights of the minorities and that's not happening. Many on the right believe it's their responsibility to force everyone else to abide by their religious and political beliefs and that is not the kind of America I swore to defend with, if need be, my very life. I served during the Vietnam War but was stateside for my tour of duty. I swore to defend and protect the Constitution which I believe is a living document, not any subset of certain politicians! - Rev. Vincent O. Gonzalez, Sr. North Fort Myers FL

The liberal democracy series has educated me on how the EU is currently operating and how delicate democracy really is for us all. Thank you for opening my eyes this week.

Loved this series, how you personalized each country's people's perspectives. I wish you could do a piece on Spain and the Catalonia independence movement. realize it's tangential to nationalism and the populist movements, but another example of the fragility of the EU. Love this podcast and yes I'm a NYT subscriber.

you guys make it sound like the swastika is banned outright when it's not (one of your presenters for this episode is German so how did she not know this?) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strafgesetzbuch_section_86a for example Subsection (1) shall not be applicable if the means of propaganda or the act serves to further civil enlightenment, to avert unconstitutional aims, to promote art or science, research or teaching, reporting about current historical events or similar purposes. and of the criteria for prosecution is means of propaganda, the contents of which are intended to further the aims of a former National Socialist organization

How is liberalism "one view?" That makes no sense. Liberalism is whatever you want to believe. The others are not.

Liberal Democracy in its original sense of the word as in democracy, freedom of speech etc will survive just fine but the modern leftist liberal-democracy where you agree with them on every policy like mass immigration or or an evil racist fascist will not.

One last thing: this piece, much like the taxi emblem, reached Glass levels of altering quotes. You have anti-migrant voters giving anti-migrant rhetoric in support of anti-migrant candidate who's made immigration her banner-issue while the speaker says "it's not really about the migrants." Man, I guess a couple of drinks and an Italian lunch is enough to buy you off, huh?

various translations are incorrect. 'Salvini premier' means 'salvini prime minister', not Salvini first, for example.

Altea Koenig I get that. I personally don't speak Italian, but I do speak Polish and I took issue with some of their translating in that episode. At one point the interviewee corrected the reporter on a claim she made and they completely ignored it and basically just summarized a conversation that I assume took place over a much longer period of time rather than actually translating what he was saying.

Jared Poulter I see your point of giving context but what use is it if it's misunderstood? to be fair most of the translation is problematic. relevant parts have been omitted (the lady's speech was filled with racist anti-Islam hatred which was simply left out) and others misinterpreted, like the example somebody quoted in the comments below. I understand how the misinterpretation of 'Salvini premier' happened, it's close to French 'première' and especially after spending some time in France it's easy to think it just means 'first'. but don't they verify their translation before the episode airs?!

the problem is there are too many people on the planet and not enough resources. some of us were just luckier to be born in better places on the planet. people are selfish and only want what is good for them. nobody wants to make sacrifices for anyone else.

Wendy Bruder If an Italian moved to China they’d have to assimilate, if an Italian moved to Syria they’d have to assimilate. Shouldn’t be a one way street where everyone has to assimilate to the country they move to EXCEPT in Europe.

Wendy Bruder There’s far more than enough resources lmfao the problem is corrupt governments around the world who steal from their people and implement policies that stifle economic growth.. Also, the idea that “People are selfish” is a joke, it’s not Europe’s job to work their asses off to pay exorbitant amount of taxes to provide for other people nor is it Europe’s job to throw its culture, values, religion, etc out the door to make room for other cultures... Italy isn’t Canada or America.

The translation at 3:10 is NOT correct! The woman does NOT say "they have everything" she doesn't even say that they don't work. She says there is no work.
