vinci. >> she served beautifully. had 10 aces in all, including ending the match with a very big ace. i just think she looks good, chris. in the beginning of the tournament, i thought it was venus' to win, but the way serena is playing, especially since they lost in the final last year, did not play well, i think she's hoping that next saturday she will be playing her sister again in the final. >> it's like serena wants to send a message to venus. and when it's venus' turn she wants to send a message back. >> venus also hasn't dropped a set. she's back on-court on saturday. nothing approaching a challenge at this point for either williams sister. serena is the odds-maker favorite just ahead of her big sister. >> a little bit of a surprise, because she's won it twice, serena, and venus has won it five times. no matter what, they're the favorites. >> she wants to win it badly. >> so does roger federer with

about that. >> and in the subway series, c.c. brought his a-game while a-rod leapfrogged a yankee legend. t >> we have fantasy news for saturday, june 27th. when you talk top spot pitchers ju you like guys going in oakland. saturday, dallas braden gets th. start. he's been red-hot, seven quality starts.ity his e.r.a. at home this year, 3.02. his opponent in that game, jorg, della rosa. 40 strikeouts in 40 road stri innings. finally, i know, paul mulholland with the pirates has struggledod lately, but he's at home against the royals. h when pitching in pittsburgh this year, a 1.84 e.r.a., and faces the royals. no team in baseball has scoredal less runs on the road than the kansas city royals.
presence of surratts and in advance of having a tax on private industry and and there is a lot of skepticism about how that might work and when senator rockefeller wrote he was hoping to get an engagement to help us outline how we can make it work in the real world. so i'm excited to send us their comments as we try to refine that legislation before we try to market up. >> , asked about the steps history something i asked about if you have any thoughts on that and also what to think about some of the most important things that the military could be doing as far as its role in moving toward? >> so let me talk about my thoughts as department of defense personnel so we have
three cyber goals and a prominent defense and i don't sound like cyber goals as much mental dod has to work with nothing else will sometimes and so we have got to have execution in the face of hostile sabot work by incapable adversary incapable an adversary is the import and west so it isn't just worried about cybercrime although we worry about that, but dod has to work in the face of this threat. a lot of other things have to work to but i will be parochial for a minute and so back to the sharing with international partners and industry, this business of defining what a mission is quickly spills outside of the department of defense. many of our missions are interagency and the government essentially mission is coalition
with lots of other partners to either close allies were people we are used to doing business with, the chinese francis and piracy in an earthquake relief for instance. >> piracy on the high seas? >> on the high seas off of somalia, not cyber tyrosine were stealing microsoft codel and sound and again in perrin with the other piece of it is that it is the communication structure depends on is 80% commercial and so that mission dependability is clearly in a joint geren and industry problem. we can do this without close interaction with industry so dependable mission execution is job one. john to is a sharing so dod has had a loss of security rolls over the years of history remain
a decision in the '70s called a system high. it was a computer science decision but it has shaped everything the federal geren has done ever since and that is will have a separate top-secret that work and several unclassified network and once an atom of information dance into one of those it is trapped there. if it is an unclassified in per piece of information but ends up in the secret network it is considered sacred and is trapped softsoap is inhibin information sharing. the theory was if the security desk of the ones that cooked up a scheme to make information sharing heart and had to be the security guys problem. so save schering is a problem to that we have in the cyber business and problem three is traditional security problem. we want to keep them sick sigrid per the time and that this coalition oriented thing. we want to keep secret within a
particular set of countries, secret very timely within a little piece of the department of defense so coming up with structures that allow this, this ad hoc coalition formation and sharing while keeping a secret is another problem. so i can the historical technology problem has been the system high decision. just one other historical low i think it is also clear based on evidence in estonia and georgia that cyber warfare is going to be a part of next big fight so dod has to take this seriously and is great the president and the secretary of defense are taking it seriously so we have a chance. that is different than it has been appearing in ..
