He supported President Barack Obama in the general election and helped bring the Clinton and Obama campaigns in Illinois together. Pritzker founded Democratic Leadership for the 21st Century,  a national organization dedicated to attracting voters under the age of 40 to the Democratic Party. He also served on the Washington, D. Senator Alan J. Dixon D-ILand U. Inhe ran for the U. House of Representatives in Illinois's 9th congressional districtspending a half million dollars from his personal fortune on television ads in the Chicago market. Carroll 's In Maythe Chicago Tribune  published an minute FBI wiretap of Pritzker and then-Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich in discussing campaign contributions and options for Pritzker to be appointed to statewide office. On the tapes, Blagojevich asked Pritzker if he would like to be appointed state treasurer, to which Pritzker, who has a background in finance, responded, "Yeah, that's the one I would want. I have not done anything wrong. Pritzker later apologized for a number of controversial and incendiary comments made in that private conversation. Pritzker and Blagojevich discussed filling Barack Obama's U. Senate seat, with Pritzker being recorded on the tapes as saying appointing then-Secretary of State Jesse White would "cover you on the African-American thing" and that he was the "least offensive" candidate. On April 6,Pritzker announced he was running for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Illinois. On August 10,Pritzker announced that his running mate would be freshman State Representative and fellow Chicago resident Juliana Stratton. Pritzker was inaugurated as the 43rd Governor on January 14, Public spending increases will be paid for by tax hikes. A separate bill signed by the Governor imposes sales taxes from online retailers, a tax on insurance companies, and decouples of the Illinois state income tax from a federal tax cut for companies that bring their foreign profits to the U. This budget neglects any potential revenue that might be collected from the legalization of recreational marijuana. In JunePritzker signed into law a bill that repeals the Illinois Abortion Law ofwhich penalizes doctors for performing abortions considered unnecessary, and the Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act. This new bill ensures the "fundamental right to make autonomous decisions about one's own reproductive health," specifically the right to choose whether to carry a pregnancy to term or to abort it, and denies a zygote, an embryo, or a fetus "independent rights under the law" of the State of Illinois. Pritzker encourages states that have passed restrictions on abortion to reconsider their positions and added that women from other states can seek refuge in his. Pritzker signed this bill at a time when the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade in legalizing abortion nationwide could be challenged. However, because the capital plan relies on tax revenue on gambling and smoking, it will be a while before that money becomes available. For years, public institutions of higher learning in Illinois have struggled financially and have lobbied for increased funding without much success. Budget cuts and ballooning costs have been driving Illinois residents out of state.

Sci-Hub is a website that provides free access to millions of research papers and books, without regard to copyright by bypassing publishers' paywalls in various ways. Sci-Hub was founded by Alexandra Elbakyan in in Kazakhstan in response to the high cost of research papers behind paywalls. The site is widely used in both developed and developing countries. Sci-Hub and Elbakyan were sued twice for copyright infringement in the United States in andand lost both cases, leading to loss of some of its Internet domain names. Sci-Hub has been lauded by some  in the scientificacademic, and publishing communities  for providing access to knowledge generated by the scientific community. Others have criticized it for violating copyright,   threatening the economic viability of publishers,  potentially compromising universities' network security and jeopardizing legitimate access to papers by university staff. Sci-Hub was created by Alexandra Elbakyanwho was born in Kazakhstan in Sci-Hub has cycled through domain names, some of which have been blocked by domain registry operators. InElsevier filed a lawsuit against Sci-Hub, in Elsevier et al. Sci-Hub et al. At the time the website was hosted in St. PetersburgRussia, where judgments made by American courts were not enforceable,  and Sci-Hub did not defend the lawsuit. In DecemberThe Washington Post reported that the US Justice Department was investigating whether Sci-Hub founder Alexandra Elbakyan had links with Russian intelligence, in part due to the suspicion that tacit approval or assistance of the Russians is required for an operation of the scale of Sci-Hub. The site's operation is financed by user donations. Sci-Hub obtains paywalled articles using leaked credentials. Users can access works from all sources with a unified interface, by entering the DOI in the search bar on the main page or in the Sci-Hub URL like some academic link resolversor by appending the Sci-Hub domain to the domain of a publisher's URL like some academic proxies. If the paper is in the repository already, the request is served immediately. If the paper is not already in the repository, a wait screen appears while the site presents someone else's credentials on behalf of the user to a series of proxies until it finds one that has access to the paper, which is then presented to the user and stored in the repository. Until the end ofSci-Hub relied on LibGen as storage: papers requested by users were requested from LibGen and served from there if available, otherwise they were fetched by other means and then stored on LibGen. SinceSci-Hub uses its own storage  for the same purpose. In Februarythe website claimed to serve overrequests per day  —an increase from an average of 80, per day before the "sci-hub. In earlydata released by Elbakyan showed usage in developed countries was high, with a large proportion of the downloads coming from the US and countries within the European Union. A study of Sci-Hub's interface is perceived by users as providing a superior user experience and convenience compared to the typical interfaces available to users who have access to a paid subscription. Sci-Hub has been lauded as having "changed how we access knowledge". Support for open-access science publishing extends beyond Sci-Hub; Plan S is an initiative launched by Science Europe on 4 September The plan requires scientists and researchers who benefit from state-funded research organisations and institutions to publish their work in open repositories or in journals that are available to all by
