Major U.S. tech firms press Congress for internet surveillance reforms

Major U.S. tech firms press Congress for internet surveillance reformsFacebook (FB.O), Amazon (AMZN.O) and more than two dozen other U.S. technology companies pressed Congress on Friday to make changes to a broad internet surveillance law, saying they were necessary to improve privacy protections and increase government transparency. The request marks the first significant public effort by Silicon Valley to wade into what is expected to be a contentious debate later the year over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, parts of which will expire on Dec. 31 unless Congress reauthorizes them. Of particular concern to the technology industry and privacy advocates is Section 702, which allows U.S. intelligence agencies to vacuum up vast amounts of communications from foreigners but also incidentally collects some data belonging to Americans that can be searched by analysts without a warrant.

Economic Reforms and Modernization in Nigeria, 1945-1965

Economic Reforms and Modernization in Nigeria, 1945-1965


A critical study of a progressive period in Nigerian historyCreated as a result of British colonialism, Nigeria emerged as a nation-state during the mid-twentieth century. The British colonial administration, in a state of economic crisis and with huge debts to the United States, was uninterested in any rapid economic development in Nigeria after WWII.

Reform came through politics and the transfer of power, with the first generation of the new political class inheriting power during the 1950s as colonialism ended. An age of ideas and actions began, and the country witnessed an expansion of its infrastructure, health services, schools, and industries. These were the first crucial steps in Nigerias march toward modernization. Early on the agenda of the emerging nation-state was the issue of economic development. Most Nigerians defined progress by earning more money, living in better houses, wearing nice clothes, eating well, and being able to send their children to school. Independence was associated with the banishment of poverty. Unfortunately, as colonialism ended, Nigerias focus switched from economic development to observing what their new leaders would do with opportunity. Politics became a competition between ethnic groups instead of a fight against colonialism. Economic Reforms and Modernization in Nigeria details the process and outcome of late-colonial and post-colonial Nigerian history. While its focus is on economic reforms, it includes a discussion of twentieth-century politics in order to place the events of the period in context. Author Toyin Falola presents statistical data on Nigerias economy that illustrate the nature of the changes made throughout the mid-twentieth century.
