John Kasich on Technology
Republican Governor; previously Representative (OH-12); 2000 & 2016 candidate for President
As a result, viewers and readers are looking at fewer, more effective ways of staying informed. What that can mean for a lot of viewers and readers, though, is they wind up getting misinformed. They believe they know all there is to know because the news outlets they choose to follow keep telling them their deeply-held opinions are right and good and true.
These days, many Americans also seem to want to get their news and information from a reinforcing media--meaning, from news organizations inclined to tell them what they want to hear or what they think they already know.
To ensure that Ohio's government, education and research infrastructure is protected against outside threats, the governor's budget seeks to create a "cyber range"--a virtual environment used for cybersecurity training and IT infrastructure testing. This new, cloud-based testing and training environment will provide tools to help strengthen the stability, security and performance of cyber infrastructure used by state agencies, local governments, school systems and state universities. In addition, Ohio will work with the education and business community to develop a program to increase the number of students who pursue certificates or degrees in cyber security.
Kasich said, "We're determined to maintain the competitive edge we have with our highways, while also positioning our state for the industries of tomorrow with self-driving cars and drones." Over the past seven years, at the same time many states have fallen behind in highway repairs and improvements, Ohio has invested an unprecedented $14 billion on nearly 7,000 projects--an increase of $3 billion.
The transportation budget also makes investments in the Transportation Research Center in central Ohio to expand capabilities for self-driving research and creates smart highways where new technologies can be safely tested in real-life traffic situations.
On cybersecurity, Kasich said the US must not only defend itself but also demonstrate that it has the capability "to identify and destroy" attacking systems. "We need to make cyber defense an integral component of our national security strategy," he said.
In Feb. 2016, he said he supported a federal court order that would require Apple to help the FBI unlock a terrorist suspect's iPhone: "I don't think it's an example of government overreach to say that we had terrorists here on our soil and we've got to understand more detail about who they may have been communicating wi
When asked about the USA Freedom Act, in a radio interview, Kasich said: "Conservatives are in general very distrustful for government, as they should be. But I think there's a balance between good intelligence and the need to protect Americans from what can become an aggressive government somewhere down the road. I'm not giving carte blanche to anybody in the federal government. There has to be rules, restrictions and regulations that restrain them."
However, at a Republican debate in December, where government surveillance was discussed, Kasich called out encryption as a major problem, saying, "Congress has got to deal with [encryption] and so does the president to keep us safe."
"We need to beam messages around the world" about the freedoms Americans enjoy, Kasich said. "It means freedom, it means opportunity, it means respect for women, it means freedom to gather, it means so many things."
The US already has a government-funded broadcast system in Voice of America, which broadcasts American news and programming abroad. The radio, television and digital audience reaches up to 188 million people per week.
The biggest businesses in America have less employees. Look at the ones that are really skyrocketing in this country. Cloud computing, 3-D printing. 3-D printing, have you ever seen it? It's amazing what it means and what it can mean. Telemedicine and the medical devices that make it possible, logistics, financial services, IT services. These are the cutting-edge industries we must have in Ohio. They just can't be somewhere else.
And we can't continue to be known as the rust belt. No one likes rust. We need the new industries. We need the new economy in this state.
Once fully enacted, Ohio's proposed new public construction budget will create approximately 31,000 new jobs over the next several years from the $2.386 billion it injects into needed repairs, maintenance and construction of publicly owned buildings and other infrastructure at the state and local level.
"We can catch up on some needed maintenance and construction of public facilities, including at the local level. I'm glad it's happening and I'm glad that so many of these requests were developed independently by local communities based on their own needs and priorities," said Kasich.
Nobody knew how prepared he was. In fact, David didn't know it himself, but he had faith. When he showed up, everybody laughed. They underestimated him. And the Saul insisted that David wear his armor, but he couldn't move swiftly or freely beneath the weight of it. David stood his ground and said, "Let me do my thing." And he did. He slew Goliath. He showed no fear. He was ready, because he'd put in the hours. It's like what Malcolm Gladwell writes in his great book "Outsiders". He says everybody who is an expert has to put in ten thousand hours building up his or her expertise. Well, David did just that. He put in his time, and God blessed his work, and it brought about a great change. He was not without flaws, of course, but he was a man after God's heart, if you will.
On my own FOX News show we must sometimes devote time to stories that appeal to our base instincts. I know the reality of my business, and I look to find a balance. Hopefully, you don't just do what feeds the beast, but you offer stories and insights that give people a chance to learn something new. On our show, we've done stories on the United Nations, Sudan, Ukraine.before any other mainstream show would touch these topics.
The real question journalists of every stripe should be asking is, "Am I pimping this story or am I reporting this story?" There's wide latitude in terms of what you say and write, just as there's great freedom in deciding which stories you'll cover in the first place.
Next morning, I got on the phone to Blockbuster and demanded that they take the movie off their shelves. The store manager finally threw up his hands and agreed to start doing a better job labeling movies for graphi content--even well-reviewed, Academy Award-winning movies--and I contented myself with this small victory. I heard from friends that our local Blockbuster hadn't really done all that much in the way of labeling, which of course set me off all over again.
