Can 8chan be taken down?

8chan is the site that has hosted all kinds of horrible shooter manifestos. It can be taken down. In fact it lost its DNS protection through CloudFlare. The question is: will it come back up? It probably will.

Is it possible to hack the Boeing 787?

Probably not. Though they did very stupidly leave a lot of code open on the Internet that somebody found. He analyzed it and thought that maybe he could get in through the inflight system and then control the plane. That would not be good at all.

What does Donald Trump have against Sundar Pichai?

Pichai is the CEO of Google. Trump has been hate tweeting him. Why has he been doing that? Well a lot of people at Google are Democrats. Trump would really like them to be more subservient. There are some Republicans at Google who feel beleaguered but mostly it's Trump trying to kind of game the system, trying to work the rest, try and get Google to act as favorably towards him in the next election as possible.

"To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

Malpass sat down with Ian Bremmer recently to talk about what his organization is doing to try to keep millions around the world from slipping deeper into poverty during the pandemic. Their conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World.
