Have Movements Pushed Biden to the Left? Rep. Delia Ramirez & Economist Dean Baker Respond to SOTU
President Joe Biden delivered his second State of the Union address Tuesday, touting his administration's achievements and laying out his plans for the next two years under a divided Congress, including on immigration, the economy, the climate crisis and more. We speak with Democratic Congressmember Delia Ramirez, who delivered a response to Tuesday's speech on behalf of the Working Families Party, and economist Dean Baker, who both applaud Biden's focus on income inequality and making the rich pay more in taxes. "He's clearly moved to the left," says Baker.

Biden Condemns Police Murder of Tyre Nichols as Congressional Push for Police Reform Remains Stalled
President Joe Biden delivered his second State of the Union address Tuesday, his first before a divided Congress where Republicans now hold a slim majority in the House of Representatives. Biden, who is widely believed to be gearing up for reelection in 2024, repeatedly asked lawmakers to work with him to "finish the job." Biden spoke exactly a month after the fatal police beating of Tyre Nichols in Memphis, honoring his parents, who were in attendance, and demanding more police accountability. Color of Change president Rashad Robinson says it was an emotional moment worth recognizing, "but we have to go the extra mile at helping the public understand why change hasn't happened, who is standing in the way of change." He says Republicans, backed by big-money donors, have effectively foreclosed the chance of meaningful legislation on policing for the next two years.

Earthquake Survivors Now Risk Freezing to Death
Dilara Senkaya/ReutersThe death toll from Monday's 7.8 magnitude earthquake on the Turkey-Syria border has topped 11,000 and is climbing as aid agencies warn the coming days could be the worst yet. Hope for those still trapped alive under the rubble has grown dim as freezing temperatures and forecast snowstorms complicate chances for survival.

The World Health Organization warned of a serious risk of survivors in remote areas now freezing to death without electricity, food, water, or shelter. "We don't have a tent, we don't have a heating stove, we don't have anything. Our children are in bad shape. We are all getting wet under the rain and our kids are out in the cold," Aysan Kurt, 27, told the Associated Press. "We did not die from hunger or the earthquake, but we will die freezing from the cold."

Many aid agencies and NGOs working in the region fear the death toll could increase substantially due to a lack of amenities for those who lost homes. "We are already receiving reports of casualties among children and the elderly falling ill and dying because of the cold," Ahmed Mahmoud, Islamic Relief's country director for Syria, told Middle East Eye. "People in tents are burning anything they can find. Some are accidentally setting their tents on fire or suffocating fr

New York City Student Loses His Little Nieces to Earthquake in Syria
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Courtesy Hussein Akoush/ReutersHussein Akoush, a 28-year-old college student in New York City, was sent into a "panic" when a friend in Syria texted him on Monday and told him that an earthquake had caused "massive destruction" to his hometown of Al-Atarib in northwestern Aleppo.

"I saw the magnitude of the earthquake was 7.8. At this point, I realized it was huge," Akoush, who grew up in Syria and moved to Turkey in 2016, told The Daily Beast. Immediately, he said, "I had to check in on my family in Syria. So I sent messages to all my sisters and my brother, but none of them received my messages."

Meanwhile, news of the unimaginable destruction had kept rolling in. The two earthquakes had hit Turkey and Syria—both countries Akoush has called home—around 4 a.m. local time on Monday. By Tuesday evening, the death toll had jumped to almost 8,000. With thousands of buildings razed to the ground, and rescue efforts to dig up people buried in the rubble still underway, that number is expected to rise significantly.

U.S. Downs Chinese Balloon as Blinken Cancels Summit & U.S. Expands Military Presence in Philippines
China has accused the United States of overreacting after President Joe Biden ordered a suspected spy balloon shot down off the coast of South Carolina on Sunday. China maintains the balloon, first spotted over U.S. airspace last week, was a civilian aircraft blown off course. The U.S. and China have been conducting surveillance on each other for years using spy satellites, hacking and other means. The Pentagon has revealed Chinese balloons also entered the continental United States at least three times during the Trump administration, as well as once before under Biden. The balloon saga led to the abrupt cancellation of a planned trip by Secretary of State Tony Blinken to Beijing and threatens to further derail the relationship between the two countries. "The two countries need to speak to each other," says Nicholas Bequelin, a visiting fellow at Yale's Paul Tsai China Center and formerly the Asia-Pacific director for Amnesty International, in a wide-ranging interview about evolving U.S-China relations and potential for tensions to escalate further.

DHS Releases Guidance to Mitigate Security Risks with the Advancement of Quantum Computing
WASHINGTON -?Today,?the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in?partnership with?the?Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards?and?Technology (NIST), released a roadmap to help organizations protect their data and systems and to reduce risks? related to the advancement of quantum computing technology.  

While quantum computing promises unprecedented speed and power in computing, it also poses new risks.? As this technology advances over the next decade, it is expected to break some encryption methods that are widely used to protect customer data, complete business transactions, and secure communications.? DHS's new guidance will help organizations prepare for the transition to post-quantum cryptography by identifying, prioritizing, and protecting potentially vulnerable data, algorithms, protocols, and systems. 

"Quantum computing will be a scientific breakthrough.? It is also expected to pose new data privacy and cybersecurity risks," said Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas.? "Now is the time for organizations to assess and mitigate their related risk exposure.? As we continue responding to urgent cyber challenges, we must also stay ahead of the curve by focusing on strategic, long-term goals.? This new roadmap will help protect our critical infrastructure and increase cybersecurity resilience across the country."?  

In March, Secretary Mayorkas?outlined his vision for cybersecurity resilience?and?identified the transition to post-quantum encryption as a priority.? DHS also issued internal policy guidance to drive the Department's own preparedness efforts and is conducting a macro-level analysis to inform the government's action and ensure a smooth and equitable transition.
