ebay wallets Internet providers balk at net neutrality bills

OLYMPIA Internet providers pushed back Thursday against legislation that would require them to continue offering accessible and open Internet service in Washington.

Those laws aren’t necessary because the federal government already has the power to intervene, they said, and state regulations could cause problems for multi state companies.

Two separate bills in the House of Representatives would prohibit providers from blocking content or making some websites pay more for faster Internet speeds. The bills, sponsored by Reps. Drew Hansen, D Seattle, and Norma Smith, R Clinton, propose many of the same regulations. Hansen said he and Smith would work together to remove any inconsistencies.

Lawmakers are trying to replace net neutrality regulations that the Federal Communications Commission established in 2015 but recently rolled back.

But Gerry Keegan, a trade representative working with companies including AT Sprint, T Mobile, Verizon and US Cellular, said a different agency, the Federal Trade Commission, could enforce existing consumer protection laws.

Statewide regulation also poses problems for companies with networks extending outside state boundaries, Keegan told the House Technology and Economic Development Committee.

Logan Bowers, a self described veteran of the Washington tech industry, said in the roughly 20 years before the FCC’s 2015 regulations on net neutrality, there were many instances of Internet service providers, or ISPs, taking advantage of their consumers.

“ISPs would leverage the fact that they’re one of the only companies that your citizens and your districts can (use) to gain access to the Internet,” he said.

The third bill heard by the committee would limit how ISPs could use data collected from their customers, specifically for marketing purposes. It would prohibit Internet providers from selling or transferring customer information without opt in consent.

Ron Main, with the Broadband Communications Association of Washington, said the bill is unnecessary, and that FTC regulations would keep ISPs in check.

“None of the major ISPs share personally identifiable information without opt ins,” he said.

If that’s the case, Hansen said providers should not have a problem with regulation, but lawmakers have a duty to ensure their constituents’ privacy and safety.

“Let’s not accept things at face value,” he said.

Alex Alben, chief privacy officer at state Office of Privacy and Data Protection, said privacy protection is subject to the FTC and the administration it’s under. Resting all hope in FTC regulation would be a bad idea, he said.

“I’m very happy to hear from the representatives of the industry that they have pledged not to do the things with respect to the sale or disclosure of personal information that are prohibited in this legislation,” he said. “All I would say is, why don’t we just create a floor of practices that protect all citizens in the state of Washington?”Failing to disclosure it would be a violation of the Consumer Protection Act. The bill also would bar government agencies from entering a service agreement with Internet providers that fail to meet disclosure requirements.

Sen. Reuven Carlyle, D Seattle, the sponsor, said it is about transparency so consumers can make informed decisions.

Keegan argued there are still strong consumer protections in place.

“The nation’s leading broadband providers have committed that they will not unfairly block or throttle legal Internet traffic,” he said. The state attorney general can sue companies that utilize unfair business practices or ignore current regulations on consumer disclosure.

Keegan and Bob Bass with AT said they would favor federal regulation over state regulation because it would remain consistent state to state.

But many providers who previously opposed net neutrality at the FCC are the same ones that now say they favor federal regulation, Carlyle said.

Sen. Kevin Ranker, D Orcas Island, said he was disappointed to see trade representatives opposing the bill.

“This is the minor bill that is simply saying ‘be transparent with your actions,'” he said. “Until (federal regulation) happens, states must protect their citizens, and they must protect the Internet.”

Discount mulberry bag ebay Outlet Internet Kiosk Business Opportunities Scam

Discount mulberry colour Outlet Internet Kiosk Business Opportunities Scam

This sounds like a good plan for many people. Some companies also successfully implemented such ideas and do make some profit. However whether this opportunity can be profitable for inexperienced entrepreneur wannabes is very questionable.

According to a number of recent publications and lawsuits most of such business opportunity ventures turned out to be scams. In this article I will try to summarize facts about the Internet Kiosk business opportunity.

The following arguments (the arguments can either be true, very subjective or simply lies) are provided by Internet kiosk business opportunity sellers.

Many people need Internet access wherever they go. People would like to pay for public Internet access.

There are many potentially profitable locations ” airports, malls, truck stops, nightclubs, hair salons, etc

People made a lot of money out of ATMs and pay phones, now is the time to profit from Internet kiosk business.

You are just in the right place and in the right time! You are lucky to be among the first who take this incredible opportunity. Other people are already making $1000 $3000 a month. You must be not a smart businessperson if you do not take advantage of this opportunity right now!

Investment amount ($7000 $15000 per kiosk) is very reasonable and will be paid off in a matter of 1 2 years.

You must act now in order to secure the best locations in your area. Or other people will take this business. by 2005.” Frost Sullivan

o “By the end of 2005, 71% of all users will access the Internet via an appliance such as a terminal.” eTForecasts

o “High Speed Public Access Internet Terminals may soon become as common in airports and shopping malls as pay telephones and vending machines USA Today

o “Public Internet Access Terminals will replace not only pay phones but also banking machines,
Discount mulberry bag ebay Outlet Internet Kiosk Business Opportunities Scam
because they will offer capabilities as well as all the other highway applications, from sending and receiving messages to scanning maps and buying tickets. Access to terminals will be essential, and available everywhere” Bill Gates

Is there is anything wrong with the opportunity? The reality makes the opportunity look different from what is being advertised:

Not that many people actually need or want to use Internet Kiosks. There is an increasing number of other ways (wireless services, mobile phone devices, etc ) to connect to the Internet including free options offered at many places such as hotels and coffee shops. Another reason is security. A responsible person may not want to type their private information on a public Internet terminal.

Equipment price is usually too high (100 300% more than it should be), additional expenses are underestimated (or simply not mentioned), and potential profits are highly overestimated.

It s very likely that inexperienced people cannot operate this or any other business without high risk and losses. Kiosk equipment is much more complex than regular vending machines, therefore regular people can not be qualified for this business.

Once equipment is bought, people are not able to get locations. When they use locator companies, many locators cannot provide good locations or do not provide any location at all after taking money for their service.

The actual Internet Kiosk Business opportunity business is to make money for the opportunity sellers. They make money by selling overpriced equipment while promising unrealistic returns. If a person or company is trying to get into the Internet kiosk business, they do not need any help from business opportunity sellers. There are many kiosk manufacturers,
Discount mulberry bag ebay Outlet Internet Kiosk Business Opportunities Scam
trade shows and conferences where one can get objective information about the business and industry. I believe there is no such thing as a turnkey business opportunity. Only a qualified person or company with extensive research and experience might be able to succeed in the Internet kiosk business.

“I accept that primarily your interest is in adult pornography, but I simply do not believe your claim that you had no sexual interest in these child images,” the Recorder of York, Judge Paul Hoffman told him.

“The probation officer doesn’t believe it either. I don’t believe it. Neither of us was born yesterday.”

Greek speaking Xanthos, 48, of Boroughbridge Road, York, using an interpreter, pleaded guilty to 13 charges of making child porn images and one of possessing such images. His computers were confiscated and the judge made a sexual offences prevention order banning him from using computers again other than for work. Even then he can never use them in private. He will also be registered as a sex offender for seven years.

Prosecutor David Garnett said Xanthos’s crimes came to light because he sent a new computer back to the shop when it crashed after he used it for only four days in July 2006.

An engineer at the shop found that during that period he had viewed 600 soft child porn images on the internet and the computer was handed over to police.

Police then raided Xanthos’s home, where they found a second computer that had been used for child porn viewing for a total of three weeks, between March 28 and July 8. During that period, the Greek waiter had found 2,184 illegal sex pictures. Police also found 200 DVDs packed with adult porn.

For Xanthos, Steve Grattage said he was nave. He had entered the name”Lolita” into a search engine, looking for adult porn, and had not expected the results to pull up child porn sites. But he accepted that after the initial search, he knew what he would find.

Discount mulberry tote bag sale Outlet Interfacing and Interlinings

mulberry locked cosmetic purse Interfacing and Interlinings

At some point in any sewing journey we all have to get to grips with interlinings. just one of those things. Sometimes it easy to work out what you need because the design you following tells you exactly which interlining to use. times the design only and it left pretty much to your imagination.

where do you go from there ?

I put this post together based around questions that I get asked via the shop and I included a PDF document (at the end) that gives a little more detail about equivalents (The USA and Europe have different manufacturers names for interlinings designed for the same purpose) which you may find useful. But strictly speaking interfacing is used to support such as those around necklines or buttonholes and interlinings describe something that goes between an outer fabric and a lining fabric. ( get it? he he!) function of both interlinings and interfacings is to support, stabilise and strengthen the main fabric. about cotton being used to make fabric bowls and boxy style clutch bags.

Well, that seems straightforward enough so what the confusion?

Interlinings come in different widths, different colours, cut off the roll, pre packaged, as sew ins, fusibles (single and double sided), fleeces and wovens. also come in different meaning that they add different amounts of support and strength to the project it being used in. that choice inevitably leads to confusion. Plus, across the world, manufactured interlinings designed to perform the same function have different trade names. names such as Pellon in the US for example and Vilene in Europe.

Also, please note, before I get too carried away, that anything can be used as an interlining. light cotton/muslin maybe all that some projects need and not manufactured interlinings at all. folk for example use curtain interlinings as a suitable interlining for light tote bags.

Why do different trade names pose a problem?

It only a problem because we so fortunate to have so many sewing patterns available to us from the across the English speaking world. plus all those gorgeous designs in books which have been translated for us. (you knew there was a didn you?) however well the sewing patterns have been written and supported it often difficult (or not obvious) to know which is the most appropriate interlining to use, given the different manufacturers names for their interlinings. US sewing pattern for example, will suggest a suitable Pellon but if you live in Europe these may not be available to you, so then what do you do?

Hooray! is information out there to help so I pulled it together and turned it into a PDF which covers a few of the interlinings you may come across.

So, why do I need to know so much about interlining?

Understanding or a least being aware of the difference an interlining can make to your finished project is a bit like knowing something of the of the trade beauty of interlining (as unappealing as it might look) is that it can mean all types of fabrics become available for making items they were previously unsuited for. come in different weights; extra heavy, heavy, medium and light and give light, medium, heavy etc support to the fabric it being added to.

One thing to note about sew ins is that they do not fray. So, if using a heavier weight interlining creates unwelcome thickness at seams then it is perfectly ok to trim the interlining back to the seam line in order to reduce bulk. For example if you using a heavy interlining in a bag, you may wish to trim it away from side seams so as to get a nice flat top edge to topstitch around.

As well as sew ins there are Iron ons or fusibles. interlinings have an adhesive on one or both sides and are to the wrong side of the fabric using an iron and sometimes steam. adhesive is heat activated and left to cool it forms a lasting bond with fabric.

(Note: fusible fleeces (aimed mainly at quilt makers) are designed for the adhesive to disappear after a first wash, so it good to know which fusible you using.)

Fusible fleeces come in different or thicknesses. Both the medium and low loft fleeces add support and softness to your sewing. The higher the loft the thicker the fleece is and the more support and more definition it will give to your quilting stitches. low loft fleeces are more suited to smaller projects, small bags, soft toys and items that don require as much support.

Other iron ons have an almost papery feel and are bonded to fabric in the same way as fusible fleeces by the use of an iron and occasionally a little steam. also change the way the fabric feels giving a more papery feel.

Wovens. (I love these) again are bonded to fabric with the use of an iron. are cotton so they feel a little like fabric but the grainy feeling side is the side with the adhesive on. bonds readily with fabric and because it has a bias in the same way that fabric has, supports the fabric but still drapes beautifully.

This isn intended as a definitive guide to interlinings. is just intended to help point you in the right direction and perhaps clear up a few questions for you. question of which Interlining seems almost unanswerable when you first start out sewing but at the end of the day the best advice to follow until you develop your own interlining preferences (It will happen, I promise.), is to follow the recommendations on the sewing pattern you are following.

If you want to see how to apply/fuse a specific interlining to a fabric then this link (the Vilene site) will give you access to some short videos showing just how it done (Oh! and you don need to understand German. or even English for that matter.)

Now, here the link to the file I promised at the beginning Download Interlinings

When you get to feel really confident with what you using. you be able to mix different interlinings together, fleeces and sew ins ands really create the amount of support you want. but that all for later.

I really hope you find this useful.

A very tricky post to write. Interlings and interfacings are a bit of a minefield and I have always found it useful to keep a scrap stapled into a notebook with the name and what I used it for. It is the thickness when applied either my stitching or ironing onto the fabric that is crucial. An ironed sample should always be carried out before applying it to the whole item. Curtain interlining is different ot dress making but it depends what you want it for.

mulberry outlet uk online Interesting Facts About

Discount mulberry antony bag Outlet Interesting Facts About

There has been a lot in the news lately about “super bugs,” which is a term that some people use to refer to bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. Super bugs are not actually a new phenomenon; it’s just that we are seeing more bacteria now than ever before that are resistant to an increasing number of medications.Before antibiotics came into widespread use in the 1950s, people sometimes died of what today we consider to be routine infections. With the emergence of super bugs, even common infections can be harder to treat because some bacteria are resistant to many antibiotics. Very sick people in hospitals are at the highest risk.How do super bugs develop in the first place?Different antibiotics kill bacteria in a variety of different ways. The billions of bacteria that normally live in your body always include a few mutants that by chance have become antibiotic resistant. If they are exposed to antibiotics, the mutants that are resistant survive while the others are killed off. In essence, repeated exposure to antibiotics over time can make these resistant mutant bugs predominant.Do antibiotics kill the bugs that cause colds?Viruses, not bacteria, cause colds. Viruses do not respond to antibiotics. Nevertheless, sometimes doctors feel pressure from patients to write a prescription for antibiotics. Even most bronchitis is typically nothing more than a really bad cough caused by a virus, which usually goes away on its own with time.What about earaches and sinus infections?There is also a common misconception that if you do have a bacterial infection, you have to be given an antibiotic to get better, but it’s not always true. Take ear infections in kids by way of example. Roughly three quarters of ear infections get better without treatment in two to three days. However, we don’t know which child is the one out of four who needs the antibiotic to get better, so frequently an antibiotic is prescribed anyway.What is the consequence of over prescribing antibiotics?The toll it may take is that the population of bacteria living in your body may become resistant to antibiotics because the bacteria in your system that responded to antibiotics have been killed off.What is the proper way to take antibiotics?It is very important to take all of the antibiotic pills in your prescription for the full length of time your doctor has instructed. Skipping doses or stopping and starting repeatedly encourages resistant bacteria to take over. This means that you should not save a few of the pills in your prescription for the next time you get sick.Is MRSA a serious problem?MRSA is the antibiotic resistant bug that has gotten the most attention from the media. These particular bacteria have become more aggressive in causing superficial infections, mostly of the skin. MRSA can cause serious infections even in healthy people, although it is a much bigger problem for hospital patients. We are seeing increased cases of MRSA on sports teams where players suffer broken skin and share towels and personal items and in people who shave their skin below the neck.To reduce your risks of MRSA, take good care of your skin. Don’t do body shaving, and don’t share razors, towels, or hairbrushes. If you suffer a skin injury, wash it and keep it covered until it’s healed. And remember to wash your hands frequently.Dr. Snedeker is a board certified pediatrician and pediatric infectious disease specialist on staff at Cayuga Medical Center and in practice with Northeast Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine in Ithaca, (607) 257 2188.

small brown handbag Interesting Facts About Leprosy

There are many rumors about leprosy, that it seems like a mortal to make even fatal illness. But as with any disease, a thorough knowledge will help you distinguish fact from fantasy. Here are some basic and some interesting facts about leprosy.

Leprosy is also known as Hansen disease. This is in honor of Gerhard Armauer Hansen, the first doctor to study the causative agent of leprosy. According to Medical Subject Headings or MeSH (created by the United States National Library of Medicine), the leprosy in three species, namely classified. tuberculoid, borderline and lepromatous; lepromatous leprosy is the most severe, hile Borderline leprosy is the most frequent and of moderate severity. alone, while 250,000 new cases of leprosy detected each year around the world. Around 3 to 4,000,000 people who have suffered from leprosy ongoing care of the disabled left to treat the disease form Young children are more susceptible to leprosy than adults. Leprosy is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae. The bacterium is pleomorphic (ie, the bacterial cell appears in more than one structural / morphological form during its life cycle) and not by Gram staining process color (because of the thick outer layer of wax around the cell). The bacterium stains with carbol fuchsin stain, making it a so called “acid fast” bacteria. The disease has a long incubation period. Incubation period is the initial phase of a disease in which no symptoms are observed. The incubation period of leprosy varies widely, from a few weeks to up to 30 years (asobserved in ex soldiers)! Average incubation period is about 3 to 5 years (that a long, long time). This essentially makes the leprosy dangerous, because it was detected until a person to have been infected, he / she may have transmitted the infection to other people. Leprosy is easily contagious. The infected person leads the bacteria by sputum, and the bacterium spread by aerosols generated by a sneeze or cough. However, it is considered to be still slightly contagious due to the fact that a single exposure is insufficient opportunity to develop the disease prolonged exposure is not required. One of the characteristic symptoms of leprosy (as well as its effect) are skin lesions. The lesions manifest at the extremities of the body first the digits, limbs, ears, nose, etc. If left untreated,
mulberry alexa Cyber Monday Interesting Facts About Leprosy
the lesions are progressive and can cause curling of the skin. The cartilage is internalized, and the structure of the affected body part is changed. Disfigurement due to skin lesions is a cause of great physical and mental anguish, the infected person. Another painful effects of leprosy is muscle weakness and loss of touch. If the disease progresses, there is loss of sensitivity to an extent, so that a person numb to touch. The numbness is characteristic in the lesions. The loss of sensitivity is difficult due to nerve damage. A common rumor in connection with leprosy is that “fall off” the body parts, such as leprosy progresses. That not true. The loss of sensation in extremities especially makes one feel like a body part is missing, but the body part actually not “fall”! The common drugs used to treat leprosy are rifampicin, clofazimine, dapsone, fluoroquinolones, minocycline, and macrolides. The treatment immediately after diagnosis ofLeprosy is crucial for several reasons. One of the reasons is that even within 2 weeks of treatment of leprosy is not contagious, as the infectivity of the bacterium is lost. This in turn reduces the quarantine of leprosy patients. This can be great positive psychological impact on the patient. This is essentially why the leprosy research focuses on finding new ways for early diagnosis of the disease. During the treatment phase, the body reacts to the dead / dying bacteria. One effect of this reaction is severe pain and swelling in various parts of the body. Other features of this reaction include fever, redness and pain in the eyes, muscle pain, increased nerve damage, especially in the eyes, hands and feet. Almost half of the leprosy patients suffering from this reaction. However, an appropriate treatment of nerve damage to prevent this reaction. In the old days, lepers were quarantined and continue to live in isolation in “leper colonies” for the rest of their lives. However, it has long been established that isolation is not required treatment. One of the biggest challenges in relation to leprosy, the fear in the minds of the people removed. Lepers suffer enormous social stigma throughout their lifetime. Many people are not able to take lepers back into their lives, and they are placed under quarantine for life. It should not be so. Yes, the scars left behind in skin lesions acceptance of such people difficult. But you should remember these scars are equivalent to accident scars or wounds scars and nothing more. Within a few weeks of treatment,
mulberry alexa Cyber Monday Interesting Facts About Leprosy
even leprosy is not contagious. But people still continue to treat the recovered leper with a difference. We should strive to do away with such prejudices.

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) Linda Mack says she got two surprises.

Find out the types of damages your insurance won cover to avoid surprises about who responsible, if your property gets damaged.”It bad because it my stuff,” said Mack. “My furniture, which I paid good money for. I have to leave it outside because I can put it in no one home.”Linda Mack moved her belongings out of a storage unit at U Haul Southpark in Colonial Heights and stacked them under a canopy at her mom home.”The smell you smell is from the storage shed. It had a very bad smell. Plus they defogged it for roaches. They claim it was odorless, but you still could smell the stuff from the cans, and they left all the cans and stuff inside the storage shed.”She claims roaches were breeding in an adjacent unit and the infestation spread to her rented space.Linda had insurance she bought through U Haul. She reported the problem. U Haul spent the next several months trying to resolve it.”I called 12 because I was not satisfied, and they were not doing anything. The insurance company would not acknowledge my claim.”Repwest Insurance did offer to pay $250, which Linda rejected as insult to injury. U Haul and its insurance company said there were no prior problems and the fact that another customer may have brought in roaches is not U Haul fault. It calls the offer a good faith attempt to help.”They say it not in the contract. That all they told me. It was not covered under their contract.

I assured her that whatever it costs to clean her furniture, clothing and belongings, I will provide her with a refund for the money she spends on this cleaning. I apologized for the claim process not being to her satisfaction and advised that once she provides me with the invoices/quotes for having her items cleaned that I will provide her with a refund.

Sustainable self storage, constructed from reused materials, protects resources and eliminates energy usage needed to manufacture new construction materials of concrete, wood, steel and plastics.

mulberry 8 card wallet Insurance companies may not cover earthquake damage

Discount mulberry outlet uk store Outlet Insurance companies may not cover earthquake damage

Homeowners should shop carefully when choosing insurance coverage for earthquake damage for their property, said Kelly Dexter, director of communications for Insurance Commissioner John Doak.

“We just encourage people to read their policies to know exactly what is covered and what is not,” Dexter said. Geological Survey, there were 567 earthquakes last year. This is five times more in the state than in 2013. In 2014 the number of earthquakes in the state surpassed the tremors occurring in California.

An insurance company does not have to cover earthquake damage caused by human activity, Dexter said. And in Oklahoma, its up to the insurance company to decide the damages it will cover in a written policy, Dexter said.

“Any standard homeowner’s policy is not going to cover earthquakes, no matter how they are caused,” she said.

An endorsement for earthquake coverage can be added by an insurance company in different ways. Some policies may exclude anything found not to be naturally occurring, such as resulting from injection wells associated with hydraulic fracturing, she said.

“There’s no regulation that they can’t do that,
mulberry 8 card wallet Insurance companies may not cover earthquake damage
” Dexter continued. But human activity causing an earthquake has yet to be proven by a court of law, she said.

An insurance company that denies covering earthquake damage on an existing policy covering seismic activity must prove the earthquake was caused by man made action, Dexter said.

So The Edmond Sun asked Austin Holland, a research seismologist with the Oklahoma Geological Survey, to what proximity does a disposal well need to be to a fault line in order to make a fault line cause an earthquake.

“It depends a lot on the geology of the fault and so forth, and there is no easy answer to that question even from the really well studied and documented cases of induced seismicity,” Holland said.

“As a science we can say fluid injection near a fault would be inadvisable, but in general we don’t have a good response as to what ‘near’ actually is. It depends a lot on the geology and the fault and orientation of stresses and so each well should undergo a rigorous geomechanical assessment to know how near near may be.”

Dexter said any regulatory changes the insurance industry would need to be addressed by the state legislature.

State Rep. Jason Murphey of Guthrie said he recently began receiving questions from homeowners who are worried their insurance coverage for earthquake damage could be denied if an earthquake is deemed to be man made by their insurance carrier.

“Potentially you can have these induced seismic events not qualify for insurance coverage,” Murphey said. “We’ll have to keep looking at that because the science seems to be stacking up more and more, bringing to light that is the case.”

Murphey predicts that future legal actions will address whether energy sector owners of injection sites are culpable for damage. If it is determined in court that some earthquake damage is man made, it will be hard to argue that the injection well is not responsible for damages, Murphey noted.

Murphey said he hopes that anyone with claims denied,
