FCC Approves $2 Billion to Bring Wi-Fi to All Schools So Kids Can WiFry, and teachers get demoted to Computer Monitor Technicians
In a 3-2 vote, the FCC moved forward with a plan to simplify and reform E-Rate, a program introduced in 1996 to help fund discounts on information technology for schools and libraries, into a program that will deliver 75 percent more WiFi funding for rural schools and 60 percent for urban ones, according to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.

To conceive, women turn off the implant with a remote control; another click of the remote restarts it. After 16 years, it could be removed. Doctors could also adjust dosages remotely. Currently, no hormonal birth control lasts over five years.
The idea for the device originated two years ago in a visit by Bill Gates and his colleagues to Robert Langer’s MIT lab. Gates and his colleagues asked Langer if it were feasible to create birth control that a woman could turn on and off and use for many years. Langer thought the controlled release microchip technology he invented with colleagues Michael Cima and John Santini in the 1990s and licensed to MicroCHIPS might offer a solution.
Few private companies step up to the challenge of creating new contraceptives. MicroCHIPS’ timing could be good. An international coalition of governments, companies, philanthropies, and nonprofits recently committed to providing family planning to 120 million more women in the world by 2020.
More work remains before MicroCHIPS files an application with the Food and Drug Administration.
For example, it will be necessary to encrypt the chips to keep their wireless data flow private and secure.
“We are fortunate to have a robust supply system of upstream reservoirs and underground reserves available for use during dry years,” a FAQ page on TMWA’s website explained as recently as early June. The missive suggests customers “continue to be diligent in using water,” but the only specific restrictions — and TMWA brass bristle at the use of “restrictions” — are alternating assigned days for watering lawns and a prohibition on daytime watering. In late June, the TMWA added to that a request that as of late July customers shave a few minutes off each cycle as a conservation measure. Further requests may come as the summer progresses, but they’re voluntary.
Ranchers and farmers in the surrounding area, unsurprisingly, are envious and irritated. The distribution of water from the Truckee and Carson rivers is set forth by decades of law and negotiation, but times like this — the third year of a brutal drought — often exacerbate dueling interests of city life and agriculture.

Another bank, another multi-billion dollar fine…and not one goes to jail, no one in power pays any price for their corruption and malfeasance, so this will only continue in the privatizing of profits and socializing of costs
