The Federal Communications Commission will propose new rules that allow Internet service providers to offer a faster lane through which to send video and other content to consumers, as long as a content company is willing to pay for it, according to people briefed on the proposals.
The proposed rules are a complete turnaround for the FCC on the subject of so-called net neutrality, the principle that Internet users should have equal ability to see any content they choose, and that no content providers should be discriminated against in providing their offerings to consumers.
The FCC’s previous rules governing net neutrality were thrown out by a federal appeals court this year. The court said those rules had essentially treated Internet service providers as public utilities, which violated a previous FCC ruling that Internet links were not to be governed by the same strict regulation as telephone or electric service.
“Prior to working at the FCC, Wheeler worked as a venture capitalist and lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry…”
Well, that makes sense.
What!? Only 12 states (and a territory) in the union allow for rain water collection!
Oh, but there’s still restrictions on that. Like in Oregon, a guy is serving 3 years in jail for it because he wasn’t following guidelines. And in Oklahoma, the only way it’s legal is if you are on well water. If you’re on city water at all it’s still illegal.
In RI it’s kinda easy. A cistern consisting of 50 gallons or more may be erected and a 10% tax rebate not to exceed 1K. Cool
It’s so early I’m upside down?
Last night I was called I’m to thee soda company early today, and I’m not digging it.

Remember the answer is: I stole them from the president.
A ham friend of mine, who is also in the Union as am I, (different local hall) has contacted me about a chance of getting in to his speciality field. It’s high voltage testing of substations and vaults. It involves traveling across this country for work…
I am very very interested not just cause of the high voltage stuff but because it’s a long term niche job..
I know I have had a few different jobs this year but with every change I’ve moved up.. So we will see..
Sun went up and down, or the earth rotated to make it appear the sun rose in the east and went to rest in the west.
Or this is a play of thoughts and you are all my pawns. My thoughts are playing them selves out as the world rotates in a particular way. My puppets going on with out knowing.
Or is it that I am a puppet of your mind. A figure from a fragment of a dream floating by? Is it I who is dreaming? Does your dream cause my reality?
This is not my beautiful house. This is not my beautiful wife.
