But lots of people in Trump's orbit—and the president himself—have plenty of cause for alarm.It also looks increasingly like China was behind the years-long Marriott hack that impacted 500 million people, which in turn means that 2014 was a full-on assault on the US by state-sponsored Chinese hackers.
The FCC regulates who can use which ranges, or bands, of frequencies to prevent users from interfering with each other’s signals.Low-Band FrequenciesBands below 1 GHz traditionally used by broadcast radio and television as well as mobile networks; they easily cover large distances and travel through walls, but those are now so crowded that carriers are turning to the higher range of the spectrum.Mid-Band SpectrumThe range of the wireless spectrum from 1 GHz to 6 GHz, used by Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mobile networks, and many other applications.
And if you throw the Marriott data into the mix, which included passport numbers like the OPM trove, the espionage effort seems even more comprehensive."If I were a foreign intelligence service and wanted to get a complete picture about a specific group of people, these are exactly the targets I would select," says Crane Hassold, senior director of threat research at the phishing defense firm Agari who previously worked as a digital behavior analyst for the FBI.
The rhetorical tennis match left precious little time for committee members to explore in any detail the urgent questions around Google's interest in building a censored search engine for China, the company's bulk data collection practices, its recent security breaches, or issues related to competition and antitrust regulation.Like earlier House hearings with tech leaders, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the day proved heavy on theatrics and light on substance—complete with audience appearances by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and Roger Stone, the conservative provocateur who now finds himself at the center of the Russia probe.The hearing was more than a missed opportunity for both lawmakers and members of the public.

But the arrest of Meng Wanzhou will strain future negotiations as Beijing will likely see the move as part of a broader pattern of US aggression against China, says Paul Triolo, who focuses on technology for the political risk-consulting firm Eurasia Group.
That’s going to require every nation to make changes, as well as individual cities, states and businesses.“It will require things that are more aggressive, like shutting down existing power plants and by 2030, we probably need to reduce global coal power production by 70 or 80 percent,” says Nathan Hultman, director of the Center for Global Sustainability at the University of Maryland.Hultman, who worked on climate issues in the Obama White House, says the solutions may be politically impossible for now.
