Former FCC chair: "We should be ashamed of ourselves" for the state of broadband in the U.S.
 
Former FCC Commissioner: “We Should Be Ashamed Of Ourselves” For State of Broadband In The U.S.

I really like this guy. Former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps spoke at the Library of Congress on June 18 regarding the failure of our broadband policies and the resultant terrible technical performance of our broadband service and connectivity when compared to the rest of the world. As someone who has worked directly with the FCC on this very subject, I can't agree more. Read the short article for more of his very important admonishishment.

Ultimately, he concluded, it all boils down to two questions:
“Whose internet is it anyway? And whose democracy is it anyway?”

Like I said, I really like this guy.

BETTER KNOW A DISTRICT: Washington's 2nd Congressional District Rep. Rick Larsen talks with Stephen Colbert about a proposed border wall between U.S. and Canada, locusts and our medical marijuana laws.
Congressman Rick Larsen doesn't support the proposed wall to separate the United States from Canada.

House the Homeless

"The final results of a study in five Canadian cities has found that paying for housing and support services for high-needs, homeless people cost nearly the same as leaving them on the street to rotate through shelters, emergency rooms and jails."

A five-year study that housed people with mental illness and drug addictions in apartments scattered throughout Vancouver found most participants stabilized their lives and coexisted peacefully with their neighbours. The findings mean residents should not be afraid of social housing mixed into neighbourhoods throughout the city, concluded the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s final report into the Vancouver At Home/Chez Soi research project.
