Big stuff is happening in Europe. No more roaming charges within EU from June 2017. Imagine having to pay ten times or more for using your phone in another state.

My biggest complaint is they give their tower so much preference in roaming areas that I will have no data connection in an area that has good roaming data. Takes 5 to 20 minutes just to mess around with things enough to get it locked in if I'm lucky.

Trump is right about rape. This is a report from Fusion, co-owned by Univision.

"A staggering 80 percent of Central American girls and women crossing Mexico en route to the United States are raped along the way, according to directors of migrant shelters interviewed by Fusion. That’s up from previous reports by non-profit organizations like Amnesty International that estimate the number at 60 percent."
Before they can reach the American Dream, many migrant women have to survive a Mexican nightmare.

A bunch of people are picking it up. There was a great Washington Post article the other day about the impact on home values of not having decent broadband. It used as an example a young couple who had decided not to buy a house in one of the towns that is stalling on approving the bond for their part of WiredWest. They are choosing what towns to look at houses in from the list of towns that have approved the borrowing and are moving forward.

Will he?
When deciding whether to run for office, Vice President Joe Biden has made it a practice to seek his family’s counsel. That advice has included at least two members of the Democrat’s immediate family—his sons—urging him to run for president in 2016, Biden friends and advisers say.

The austerity that the IMF, WTO and ECB imposed on Greece hasn't worked out. About half of the population is below the poverty line, the unemployment rate is 26% and its GDP shrunk with 30% between 2008 and 2013.

The reason why people are upset across Europe (not just in Greece but also in Spain where the economy is growing) is because the banks that cheated and lied were bailed out while people lost their jobs. And when people could no longer pay the mortgages because their incomes were slashed to save the banks, the same banks returned the favor by having people evicted, and a lot of those homes are now empty because few can afford to buy them.

Host of Google Plus Week
Introduction
I'm the host of the web TV show Google Plus Week and the publisher of three newspapers in Virginia: Warren County Report, Frederick County Report and The Lynchburg Times. They have a combined readership of about 70,000.

I also host daily News & Technology shows on Google+ and YouTube Live

If you are looking for information on my studio setup click here.

I am a former teacher and director at Randolph-Macon Academy where I oversaw the school's installation of internet connectivity in every dormitory room and classroom on campus in the mid 90s. We were the first school in the nation to do so. I also founded the school's low-cost internet service R-MA OnLine.

In 1993 I left R-MA for a year to work as a database programmer and write a computer game that sold over 110,000 copies.

I am a former radio talk show host who still fills in from time to time for the noon hour on WFTR and WZRV in Front Royal.

I am the son of a U.S. foreign service officer and was born in Okinawa, Japan. I have lived in more than 20 countries, mainly in Europe, Asia and Africa.

I am a classic example of a creative person with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is a curse I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy and the greatest gift I have ever received.
Bragging rights
I had a cameo as "the evil print reporter" in Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. I have lived all over the world from poverty-stricken countries in between civil wars to the fanciest neighborhood on Abbey Rd. in London. I prefer something in between.
