The "Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies" (or #EARNIT) Act, was introduced by Senator:

Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

"Encryption is a powerful tool to protect private information like passwords and financial details. However, it also can be used by criminals..." - Sen. Durbin

I'm really looking forward to seeing David Attenborough: "A Life on our Planet"

"A site got rid of targeted digital ads—and its revenues went way up"

Ad-funded sites going back to the contextual ads will help solve many of the issues of the current web:
