MTV's Senior Political Correspondent Ana Marie Cox admitted on Tuesday's "Morning Joe" that she had joined the protests against President Trump. "If you have a group of people that really truly seem to believe that these are paid protesters that are out there. I mean I wonder, I haven't gotten my check yet. I don't know if you sign up for benefits, or what. The meetings are a mess, let me tell you that," Cox said. President Trump's Press Secretary Sean Spicer suggested in early February that protesters were being paid, saying recent protests against Trump have not been "organic uprisings that we’ve seen through the last several decades. The tea party was a very organic movement. This has become a very paid, Astroturf-type movement." Cox said that the town hall protests are different from the tea party town hall protests because they are not funded by Americans for Prosperity and the Koch brothers.

On Facebook, she shares her story with others who've left or are looking to leave extremism. "We act as a group of people who understand each other," said former skinhead Christian Picciolini, an old friend of Martinez who founded the Chicago-based Life After Hate. "We understand the motivations of where we came from and why we joined. We understand what keeps people in. And we help each other detach and disengage from that ideology and provide a support system for them as they go through that transformation." Founded in 2009, Life After Hate was awarded a $400,000 Justice Department grant in the closing days of the Obama administrationfunding that could be endangered if the Trump administration decides to refocus a federal program combatting violent extremism solely on Islamic radicals, as is being considered. Leaving hate behind While several other grant recipients are dedicated to countering radical Muslim ideology, Life After Hate concentrates specifically on showing white extremists there's another way.

Prasad also said that while the ministry has already launched a division for digital payments under CERT and a financial CERT is also being set up, states will also be encouraged to set up their own CERTs. Among the other measures announced were 10 more Standardisation Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) facilities to be set up and the testing fee for any star-up that comes up with a digital technology in the area of cyber security to be reduced by 50%. Prasad also said that designated forensic labs will be empowered to work as the certified authority to establish cyber crime. “India today joined the distinguished club of countries that have malware-cleaning systems for the use of its citizens. As of now, we have 13 banks and internet service providers using this facility. With the expanding digital footprint in the country, I see a surge in start-ups in the area of cyber security by the end of the year,” Prasad said.

Sahar Kian, a 23-year-old Washington, D.C. resident, joined CNN's Michael Smerconish on Saturday to discuss her online Craigslist post for a roommate, which has made waves because Kian included a "no Trump supporters" clause in the advertisement. "Look at me, I'm brown. I'm a woman. I am somebody who is heavily reliant on Obama's pre-existing condition clause," Kian explained to the CNN host. "I don't think that it's fair to judge me for not wanting somebody who criticizes me for the things that I identify with." Kian was looking for a roommate for her home near Georgetown University and posted an ad on Craigslist, CNN reported over the weekend. "Alcohol, pets, and meat products are not allowed in the house," Kian wrote. "Neither are Trump supporters." She stood by her ban on Trump supporters on Saturday. "So no, I would feel like I'm in a hostile environment if me and my roommates, who are immigrants, felt unwelcome by Trump, his supporters, and the policies that are discriminatory," Kian said.

Her blog post describes a male-oriented culture in which women were treated poorly. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick responded to Fowler's blog post, saying what she describes in it is abhorrent and against everything Uber stands for and believes in. It's the first time this has come to my attention so I have instructed Liane Hornsey our new Chief Human Resources Officer to conduct an urgent investigation into these allegations, reads a statement sent to Recode . We seek to make Uber a just workplace and there can be absolutely no place for this kind of behavior at Uber — and anyone who behaves this way or thinks this is OK will be fired.” Fowler, in her post, describes how, once her training was complete, the manager of the team she joined sent her sexually-charged messages. On my first official day rotating on the team, my new manager sent me a string of messages over company chat, her post reads.

A new study from the Center for Immigration Studies reports that a border wall could save U.S. taxpayers $64 million over the next decade. The author of the report, director of research Steven Camarota, joined Cheryl Casone of Fox Business on Friday to discuss the costs associated with illegal immigrants. "We do have a pretty good idea based on a variety of sources of the likely education level of illegal immigrants and there is already an existing body of research that estimates the fiscal impact of illegal immigrants by education or immigrants in general," Camerota began. "The National Academy of Sciences just did a study last year on how much immigrants pay in taxes and use in services by education," he said. "Once you know the education level of illegal immigrants and then you plug it in and you can come up with an estimate." Casone asked Camarota to further explain how the cost of an illegal immigrant accumulates.

For the record, the bauxite mining moratorium started on Jan 15, 2016 and was extended several times with the latest period expected to expire on March 31. Ali Akbar commended the contractor for being brave enough to meet and discuss with the villagers when he was interrogated by various quarters who demanded to see the approval letter. Meanwhile, Beserah assemblyman Andansura Rabu who joined in the interrogation urged the relevant agencies, especially the Land and Mines Department, to update the status of the mine. He said if the mine was operating illegally on the private land, firm action should be taken to avoid untoward incidents there. "We are protesting because even the roads which have been damaged by the bauxite trucks are still not repaired. The state government must clarify the matter immediately," he said. — Bernama
