Six months into her tenure as head of the Small Business Administration, Linda McMahon sees a split among small business owners — they are increasingly optimistic, she says, but many are held back by their inability to get loans or find the right workers for jobs that are staying open. “Entrepreneurs are willing again to be bigger risk-takers than they have been over the past eight years,” McMahon said in a phone interview this week with The Associated Press. But, she said, there are also lingering effects of the Great Recession, and “I think there is still a caution.” McMahon’s observations matched owners’ self-assessments in surveys including ones released by Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Bus...

There’s something different about the crop of Democrats running for Congress in 2018. As in previous years, the party has recruited a small army of veterans in high-profile races and in Republican-held districts. There are loads of state legislators, business owners, and government officials. But the candidates also include a volcanologist who’s worried that her favorite research spot will be opened up for development; an aerospace engineer who’s running against the climate-denying head of the House Science Committee; a pediatrician who spends part of the year treating leprosy patients in Vietnam; and a physicist who worries what budget cuts would mean to the federal research facility where she spen...

After a presidential campaign ends–particularly if it ends badly—the campaign’s once-innovative tools to target voters tend to collect dust along with unused boxes of buttons and bumper stickers. Unlike the campaign tchotchke, however, those data analytics and targeting tools could actually be useful to future national and state campaigns. Now, a group of former Obama staffers is trying to break that cycle. The group, Higher Ground Labs, is taking a note from Sand Hill Road and applying venture-capital tactics to progressive politics.

Voting Machine Hacks Help Show How to Protect Elections

The toughest thing to convey to newcomers at the DefCon Voting Village in Las Vegas this weekend? Just how far they could go with hacking voting machines set up on site. "Break things, just try to pace yourself," said Matt Blaze, a security researcher from the University of Pennsylvania who co-organized the workshop. DefCon veterans were way ahead of him. From the moment the doors opened, they had cracked plastic cases open, and tried to hot wire devices that wouldn't boot. Within two minutes, democracy-tech researcher Carsten Schürmann used a novel vulnerability to get remote access to a WINVote machine.

Scaramucci out after 11 days in White House job

In Business, Emerging Technology, Finance, Government, Healthcare, Legal, Security by Long Island Business NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

Anthony Scaramucci is out as White House communications director after just 11 days on the job — and just hours after President Donald Trump’s new chief of staff, John Kelly, was sworn into office. Hoping to turn the page on a tumultuous opening chapter to his presidency, Trump had insisted earlier Monday that there was “no chaos” in his White House as he swore in the retired Marine general as second chief of staff. Not long after, Scaramucci, who shocked many with his profane outburst last week against then-chief of staff Reince Priebus, was gone. In the words of the White House announcement, he was leaving because he “felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to buil... Read More

Some immigrant high school students in New York’s suburbs are being unfairly swept up in a growing hysteria over the brutal MS-13 street gang, civil rights lawyers said. At least nine students from Long Island’s Suffolk County have been sent to U.S. immigration detention facilities after being falsely labeled as gang members, the New York Civil Liberties Union said. None of the teens had ever faced criminal charges related to gangs, and in some cases their alleged gang “activity” was wearing a black T-shirt or making a hand gesture, the NYCLU said. “No child deserves to have his life upended or be ripped away from family based on flimsy allegations,” NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman said. “Child...

‘Obamacare’ repeal reeling after Senate defeat

Dealing a serious blow to President Donald Trump’s agenda, the Senate early Friday rejected a measure to repeal parts of former President Barack Obama’s health care law after a night of high suspense in the U.S. Capitol. Unable to pass even a so-called “skinny repeal,” it was unclear if Senate Republicans could advance any health bill despite seven years of promises to repeal “Obamacare.” “This is clearly a disappointing moment,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “I regret that our efforts were not enough, this time.” “It’s time to move on,” he said. The vote was 49-51 with three Republicans joining all Democrats in voting ‘no.’ McConnell put the health bill on ho... Read More

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos surpassed Microsoft founder Bill Gates to become the world's richest person today for a brief period, with a net worth of $90.9 billion, thanks in large part to Amazon's recent acquisition of Whole Foods. The honor lasted only a few hours, as Amazon's stock price fluctuated Thursday ahead of the company dropping its earnings report, which revealed the company is doing well, but maybe not quite as well as analysts had predicted. Ultimately, Bezos ended the day with a net worth of $89.8 billion to Gates' $90.8 billion, according to Bloomberg's Billionaires Index. But with Bezos' empire growing, an... Read More
