    The T-Mobile plan does violate Net Neutrality – And that’s okay! 온라인카지노 All of the debate about Net Neutrality has focused on nightmare scenarios, conspiracy theories. The fear that ISPs would block out competing products, or deny bandwidth to political websites that disagree with the company. But I think what we’re seeing in the real world is real benefits from not having Net Neutrality. Here in the US, T-Mobile is doing interesting things with music streaming and now TV streaming. You can imagine other companies jumping to offer similar deals. 온라인바카라 In the developing world, you have programs like Facebook’s Internet.org, where the company is investing heavily in internet infrastructure where no one else is, on the premise that Facebook will make back some money from new internet users using Facebook services. If net neutraility were enforced globally, Facebook would lose its financial incentive to pursue this project. Anyway, you can see lots of reasons why companies would want to experiment in this area. I know The Verge just wants mobile carriers and internet providers to become "dumb pipes," but it’s worth looking at things from those company’s perspective. If Verizon and T-Mobile were forced to compete on price and coverage alone, they would have very little incentive to experiment and make their service more appealing. 카지노사이트주소 Folks would simply choose the plan that a) has coverage in their area and b) is cheapest. What if Verizon just undercuts T-Mobile's price? How would T-Mobile counter that, besides just lowering prices further? Same with cable television providers. Instead, we get this wild offering from T-Mobile, with other carriers sure to offer similar deals.

    I am convinced that the within 5 years, most EU member states will completely ban encryption. 인터넷카지노 Why? It has to do with growing social tensions between ethnic groups. You might have noticed that some EU immigrants have a special idea of having a good time... Those NO GO ZONES... They do exist. But it is not like most imagine. These are areas where police and the fire department or any other officials are systematically harassed, by throwing stones and other items on them.인터넷바카라 The UK... they pretty much banned private handgun ownership out of fear that too many immigrants would be shoot in self defense during home invasions... So, for sure the UK will ban encryption. Then the French will do it, the Swedes and it will become EU law. I also expect a total gun ownership ban in Europe within the same time frame. 카지노사이트 Look, out of 300 French Main Battle tanks, less than 30 are operational. The Eurofighters have cracks in their front wing cage... With every nation having its own weapons, trucks, the EU can't cope with any form of revolution, they could not even buy nor get spare parts as many manufacturers are out of business.

    It's become unbearable these days. full page, front page ads on leading dailies, web ads on youtube, ads on leading news channels, and that nagging notification when you open facebook. Handshakes with the prime minister..... 인터넷카지노 You want to destroy net neutrality and you want my help in doing so? please f*** off. I'm not dumb enough to see the business interests associated with a supposedly charitable program- you know that too, so why this sly marketing? Please don't show us (supposedly) underprivileged indians in your hideous ads (btw, if you are wondering, they are actors wearing particularly bad clothes and unkept hair). Please stop bombarding my mornings with full page front page newspaper ads (yes we still get our news from printed newspapers). 인터넷바카라 OK, but Mr.Zuckerberg wants to help underprivileged indians! LIE! a big lie. the real average income for a low income household (say a farmer / labourer ) in a rural setting is around 1500 us$ a year. and we have a huge selection of smartphones that cost less than 100$ ( see xiaomi redmi prime 2). 3g plans (where available) cost 1-2 $ per gigabyte per month. So essentially anyone who wants to use a smartphone CAN afford it and use it (NOTE: the cost of living in a rural setting is way low compared to western countries- and according to the indian govt is 1-2$ for a (classified poor) family ).카지노사이트 The problem for net access in india is not the cost of entry (usually a smartphone) or even the cost of data, but it is connectivity- the country is quite large and though most of the land mass has 2g connectivity, 3g is a rarity in the rural setting. The private telecom players do not find the rural market profitable for 3g services as they need larger infrastructure to cater to the same amount of customers. SO is Mr.Zuckerberg really addressing these problems? in two words, HELL, NO!

    I like stories - short ones in particular. I write and publish 2-minute fictions on YouTube every day from pieces I post on Medium . 카지노사이트주소 When I heard about Amazon Video Direct earlier on today, I was pretty excited. It was written about as a YouTube competitor and, as much as I love YouTube, I was pretty keen to get in on AVD on the ground floor. Amazon just seemed like such a good place to publish short fiction videos; it's already the prime place for independent e-books, I thought it would be the perfect place for my video fictions. 바카라사이트주소 Now, I'm under no illusions - my stories are my pleasure, but they are never going to be a big earner for me. I write and record for the love of the story. Right now, I'm happy with that. But the thought of entering a less crowded marketplace was also appealing. I just want people to enjoy my work and AVD is so new, it is going to make discovery of my fictions a whole lot easier. Youtube's success comes partly from the fact that it is so damn easy to upload. I teach 11 year old kids who do it better than me, because it just works well. But Amazon Video Direct is not only ugly, but cumbersome and (worst of all) insists you include when you upload. WHAT??! Ain't nobody got time for that. 안전놀이터 And this is why Amazon Video Direct is going to be a completely different kettle of fish to YouTube. YouTube is for everyone; AVD is for those who are serious about their work. Sure, it might end up meaning a smaller, but better quality, selection of videos - but it is never going to have the reach and cultural penetration of YouTube.

    Facebook looks certainly like company hellbent on changing how human beings interact with each other. 인터넷카지노 There are close to 1.5 billion people who now use Facebook on one or more of the available platforms (Web and Apps), and if you include its subsidiaries/acquisitions such as WhatsApp, Instagram, and Oculus, then that pool of users grows significantly. Facebook introduced live broadcast on its news feed enabling users to share videos with their followers in real time. However, I can't stop to imagine that Facebook could do more with its live video streaming feature by adding more functions. Chances are that some of the functions could be in the works already behind the scenes, which means we could see them soon. But that hasn't happened yet. 카지노사이트 Facebook has the potential to top that list of the world's largest companies by market capitalization by the year 2020, especially if it can fully utilize its addressable market. One of the things that Facebook could add to live video is conferencing and group discussions. It can integrate these features to be visible in the on pop out window broadcast. This would allow the company to broaden the services offered thereby giving it a chance to even challenge other platforms like Skype and Google Hangouts. With the modern work environment shifting from the physical offices to cloud computing, this feature might actually become a realistic revenue contributor to Facebook's business model. 인터넷바카라 In summary, Facebook's live video broadcast feature could be made better by a dding more functions as pointed out. It's a great product with great potential of making a difference in the company in dollar terms.

    I found this article off of Gizmodo today, called "Use This Tool to See If Your Name Was Used to Support Net Neutrality Repeal," and was interested to see if mine was. While I am very much in favor of Net Neutrality, 인터넷카지노 I never posted any comment on the orginal proposal, so any use of my name would be false. So I clicked the link, which took me to this page. I put in my name and, lo-and-behold, comments came up. Actually, seven comments came up. One of them didn't have any trace of my name in it (weird, but whatever), and another seemed to be from a real person who just shared my name (bad grammar, misspellings, "u" for "you" and such, etc.), so those two passed my cursory examination. 인터넷바카라 It was the other 5 comments that used my exact name (and, for one of them, my address) and several pre-generated variations of anti-NN comments that made me VERY angry. Now, I somewhat understand; my name is remarkably close to a very commonly used "filler" name (a variation that is similar in nature to "Jon Smith" and "John Smith"), so it's not that far-fetched that they just used variations on that name. But 5 times? Come on, that's obscene. I'm a pretty internet-active citizen, so it makes sense that my name would be a pretty easy choice, but it's not right. 카지노사이트 I urge you to check it out, put your name in to see if it's been used fraudulently, and to report usage. If you don't know anything about Net Neutrality, please go learn, either from my post from earlier this year, or the hundreds of professionalvideos and articles. It's a really big deal, so please keep educated. Then go call your local officials to demand answers as to why, in a month, we might be living in a completely different internet.

    I'm sure most of us have heard about the mission to save the 12 Thai boys and their coach who were trapped in a cave. It's been in the headlines for a couple weeks. What's also grabbed headlines is Musk's attempt to have his team engineer a sub that could help the divers save the boys and the coach. 온라인바카라 What's also grabbed headlines is Musk's attempt to have his team engineer a sub that could help the divers save the boys and the coach. First, the rescue chief calls Musk's sub impractical. In response, Musk questions the rescue chiefs knowledge on the matter. This is rude and shouldn't have been done, but not the end of the world. Frankly, he should have just provided proof that his sub is practical and would have been capable of saving the 12 children and the coach. 카지노사이트주소 Then, because a diver and cave explorer (no he didn't dive this time, but offered expertise on the cave's structure and mapping) had the audacity to call Musk's sub a PR stunt and told him to "stick it where it hurts", he responds by calling the diver a pedo. You cannot make this stuff up. I think the diver had some harsh words for Musk, who once again could have simply set the record straight without resorting to libel. Now he's opened himself up to a lawsuit. 바카라사이트주소 This is obviously disturbing behavior from a CEO of multiple companies. I'm not sure how anyone can read what he tweeted and still defend him. The best thing he can do at this point is to apologize and hand his Twitter account over to a PR team. Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company would benefit from having a focused CEO, not one that's unhinged on Twitter. Edited to add the diver's unmentioned childish comment.

    The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) takes a serious view of such offences. 인터넷바카라 We adopt a multi-pronged approach through deterrent laws, stringent border checks as well as inland enforcement. We regularly conduct raids (an average of more than 100 monthly) targeted at immigration offenders, harbourers and employers of immigration offenders.  We collaborate closely with agencies such as the Singapore Police Force and the Ministry of Manpower in our enforcement efforts. 카지노사이트 The public can play a part by not offering employment or shelter to immigration offenders.   Home owners should exercise due diligence in checking the status of their foreign tenants, before signing or renewing their tenancy agreements. They should also check if their tenant has sublet rooms illegally. Members of the public with information on immigration offenders can report via the ICA website or call 1800-391-6150. Any information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence. Under the Immigration Act (Cap 133), the penalties for overstaying or illegal entry are a jail term of up to six months plus a minimum of three strokes of the cane. 온라인카지노 If anyone is found guilty of recklessly or knowingly harbouring overstayers or illegal immigrants, he may be sentenced to a jail term of between six months and two years and a fine of up to $6,000. If a person is found guilty of negligently harbouring overstayers or illegal immigrants, he may be sentenced to a jail term of up to 12 months, or a fine of up to $6,000, or both.

    In January, I had requested a copy of the estimated payout from the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Life scheme from the age of 65 to 70. 카지노사이트주소 Last month, I again wrote to the CPF Board for an update of the estimated payout. Since interest would have accrued, I was curious to know what the new increased payout would be. To my horror, the new estimated payout amount was lower than that in January. 바카라사이트주소 My immediate thought was that there might have been an unauthorised withdrawal from my CPF Retirement Account (RA). I logged in to my CPF account, and, to my relief, found that the amount in the RA remained untouched. Feeling puzzled as to why the payout was lower when the RA amount remained the same (without the interest accrued), I wrote to the CPF Board for clarification. After a few days, a CPF staff member called and explained that the computation method used for the payout in the month of January was different from the one used in July. But he could not explain why, as the computation was carried out by a different department. 안전놀이터 I hope that the CPF Board can be more transparent and consistent in the processing of our CPF Life payouts. It is very difficult for a layman to accept that the same amount in the RA will give a lesser payout as time passes. This defieslogic. There is interest accrued as time goes by, and so the payout should be more (regardless of how insignificant it is).

    As a father of three, I can imagine the anger and frustration felt by his parents, in particular his mother who rightfully pointed out that the punishment should serve as a deterrent for the sake of future full-time national servicemen (NSFs) who may be subject to similar treatment. 온라인카지노 What confounds me is the lack of common sense on the part of the commanders who chose to conduct a run a day before the fast march in the belief that it would "enhance fitness and foster cohesion". In order to perform well in physically strenuous activities, we need sufficient rest. In this case, not only did they conduct a run the day before but they also chose to spot check the soldiers after lights out. Based on a few soldiers using their phones, the whole platoon was punished. 온라인카지노   If the commander felt the need to punish them, couldn't the punishment have been meted out after the fast march? Again, common sense was lacking. The next question is, was the punishment in proportion to the so-called offence. Push-ups, crunches, sprints, bear crawls and leopard crawls done in the middle of the night are cruel and unnecessary punishment. This punishment, carried out the night before the fast march, would have added to the physical, mental and emotional stress of the soldiers. Although the Committee of Inquiry (COI) reports that the soldiers had six hours and 15 minutes of sleep, this is based on the time they went to bed after the punishment. No one knows how long they took to fall asleep and how many of them actually had restful sleep after undergoing such punishment. 카지노사이트 Although the COI seems to focus on other factors, including measures to prevent heat injuries and reduce the delay in getting medical attention, the fact remains that CFC Lee's death was mostly caused by the irresponsible and unprofessional behaviour of his commanders. We need to send a strong message to those who would perpetrate such offences that the law will come down very hard on them.

  • As a father of three, I can imagine the anger and frustration felt by his parents, in particular his mother who rightfully pointed out that the punishment should serve as a deterrent for the sake of future full-time national servicemen (NSFs) who may be subject to similar treatment. 온라인카지노 What confounds me is the lack of common sense on the part of the commanders who chose to conduct a run a day before the fast march in the belief that it would "enhance fitness and foster cohesion". In order to perform well in physically strenuous activities, we need sufficient rest. In this case, not only did they conduct a run the day before but they also chose to spot check the soldiers after lights out. Based on a few soldiers using their phones, the whole platoon was punished. 온라인카지노   If the commander felt the need to punish them, couldn't the punishment have been meted out after the fast march? Again, common sense was lacking. The next question is, was the punishment in proportion to the so-called offence. Push-ups, crunches, sprints, bear crawls and leopard crawls done in the middle of the night are cruel and unnecessary punishment. This punishment, carried out the night before the fast march, would have added to the physical, mental and emotional stress of the soldiers.

    The Committee of Inquiry report on Corporal First Class (CFC) Dave Lee Han Xuan's death raises some disturbing questions regarding the safety procedures and treatment of heatstroke in the Singapore Armed Forces. 카지노사이트주소 First, why was full-time national serviceman (NSF) Lee treated for physical exhaustion instead of heatstroke after his fast march? Surely it would have been easier to treat it as the latter first and downgrade it otherwise. Next, why was his platoon subjected to physical punishment the same night after a run? 바카라사이트주소 In Singapore's hot weather, CFC Lee and his fellow soldiers had to undergo three physiologically demanding activities in less than 24 hours. Finally, mistake upon error ultimately led to the death of CFC Lee. 안전놀이터 Where were the unit's senior commanders and why didn't anyone intervene on the troops' behalf to stop this or at least ensure there were sufficient safety measures in place?

    At the same time, Dr Yik's letter should encourage Singaporeans to think carefully about the role that opposition parties should play in our society. 카지노사이트 Singaporeans will not be content with just having a voice. They need a plan and want to see a clear direction. Banners and slogans will neither address the concerns of Singaporeans nor fix the country's problems. We have to recognise that real, meaningful change is not made from condensing complex and difficult national problems into simple political catchphrases. 온라인카지노 Instead, it is brought about by addressing these problems directly and solving them through sound policies and competent governance.   Yes, lending an ear to the people is undeniably important - and leaders of all stripes should strive to do so. But the work does not end there. Rather, it is only the beginning: Having heard the people, actions have to be taken promptly. Leaders from opposition parties should not be telling people only about "what went wrong". They should also tell Singaporeans "what to do" and, more importantly, "how to do it". Words and resolutions without solutions are nothing more than castles in the air. 온라인바카라 Opposition parties should be less a political force to oppose than a constructive bloc to propose new and innovative solutions to remedy the country's problems. Major pieces of a constructive political or governance architecture always comprise strong leadership and clear direction. They are never built upon mere rhetoric and pithy talk. The last thing that Singaporeans would want is a political landscape dabbed by specks of parochial party interests and political bickering devoid of form and meaning. Despite the fact that a coalition of opposition parties may be in the making, it still comes down to having policies and proposals for real, meaningful change to make the difference.

    I do not deny that there have been attempts to encourage re-employment. 바카라사이트 However, the glacial pace of progress has cast doubts on whether these have really been effective or supportive. In addition, despite the efforts of agencies advocating fair employment and non-discriminatory employment, unfair practices exist with very little recourse for the mature employee. For example, despite an employee doing exactly the same job, there are employers that extract a pay cut the moment that employee crosses a certain age - and the guidelines do not prohibit it. 인터넷카지노 It is in the national interest that re-employment efforts be given some teeth without further delay.   The measures thus far have been more business-friendly than fair. As corporate citizens, businesses have a responsibility to ensure that willing, able-bodied Singaporeans are employed. This has become more pressing given our ageing population. Furthermore, it is no encouragement that despite the longstanding tripartite engagement and despite the efforts of Cabinet ministers helming the NTUC, employers still have to be encouraged to re-employ fairly. 인터넷바카라 It has been at least a decade since re-employment was mooted. Either the Government is being too soft on employers or the employers are not taking the Government seriously.

    I agree with Mr Paul Chan Poh Hoi that the design of our social and family development policies should be based on hard evidence, rather than stereotypes, generalisations and misconceptions. 카지노사이트주소 Unfortunately, a framework that advocates universal benefits without any conditions seems a tad simplistic and naive as it does not take into account the vagaries of human nature. Like Mr Chan, I am all for assisting those who are truly in need, including through a programme of guided and assisted self-reliance. But, it is just as important for us to acknowledge that not all hardship cases occur because of events beyond an individual's control. Hard evidence from some cases do point to poor choices as well as a penchant for free-ridership and a crutch mentality. 안전놀이터 It does not mean that help should not be rendered to such individuals or families. But it certainly means that help should not be dished out to them unconditionally and indefinitely.   What isa disservice to "fellow Singaporeans who are struggling daily with harsh realities in one of the world's richest city states" is a system that hands out grants indiscriminately, especially when such public funds could be channelled to those most in need. 바카라사이트주소  The sooner "bleeding heart liberals" eschew the melodramatic stereotyping of citizens in distress as mere victims of the system who are doing their utmost to make ends meet, the more credible their cause will be.

    Whether 17-year-old Ben Davis should be granted national service deferment to pursue what is deemed by some to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop a football career with English Premier League side Fulham has raised different perspectives among Singaporeans. 바카라사이트주소 I am disappointed to hear Ben is playing as an English national for the football club despite his Singaporean citizenship. The family was also non-committal about a possible return date, and made it dependent on whether his contract would be renewed. Deferring an individual on these grounds would be very unfair to those who have had to forego similar distinguished opportunities in order to dutifully serve NS. 안전놀이터 If NS is necessary to ensure Singapore's continued peace and prosperity, then the principles of national security, universality and equity that underpin NS must not be compromised. My family and I had the opportunity to watch the National Day Parade preview last weekend.   More than a parade and a show, it was a strong symbol of what the past and present generations of servicemen continue to defend - Singapore's freedom and sovereignty. 바카라사이트 A strict adherence to the said principles is why we can commit to NS, and why NS has continued to be the backbone of our defence since the early years of our independence. It is one of the reasons why we have been able to celebrate Singapore's National Day year after year, for the last 53 years.

    A question was raised as to the relevance of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disclosure laws in the case of HIV-positive individuals who are taking medicine consistently, thus suppressing the virus and not making it transmissible. 온라인카지노 Timely checks are not a catch-all. First, post-exposure screenings may not accurately capture the infection given the possibility of an incubation period.  Second, there is a possible time lag between infection and the detection test. 온라인바카라 Third, the viral load factor in the infected person may fluctuate from the recent viral load test.  Given the above, the laws safeguarding otherwise innocent partners who cannot appraise the risk they are exposing themselves to, is still valid, notwithstanding the advancements made in HIV treatment.   Care must be exercised by individuals with HIV infection, 카지노사이트주소 and they have a duty to offer their partners a fair basis to exercise judgment on whether to participate in activities that will markedly place them at a heightened risk of exposure. Therefore, such disclosure laws should continue to be in place.

    The late president S R Nathan made wild birds feel at home in the Istana, and ensured that hornbills had adequate food and shelter so that they would breed there. 바카라사이트주소 Heartened by Mr Nathan, private citizens with the means to do so and with support from people involved in the Istana project emulated his example, thereby encouraging hornbills and other desirable birds, once scarce in Singapore, to re-establish themselves. Yet, Mr Prabakharan supports prohibiting the feeding of wildlife. This will discourage nature lovers from actively attracting songbirds to their gardens.  While he admits that bird-feeding stations are frequently set up to see birds through the winters in temperate countries, he is incorrect to claim that in Singapore there is an abundance of food all year round. 카지노사이트주소 For local songbird species, breeding is dependent on the supply of food. During the dry season mid-year, breeding activity drops off. But if food is provided, breeding continues throughout the year.   His statement that the feeding of wildlife by untrained individuals would often do more harm than good is unsubstantiated and supercilious. Many desirable bird species are quite adaptable as far as diet is concerned. It is inaccurate for him to claim that what is used in bird feeders is nutritionally inadequate. Very reliable and well-researched products are readily available in Singapore. Pet birds grow, sing and breed on these diets. Wild birds will flourish just as well. His mention that the feeding of "wild" pigeons caused them to procreate and become pests is irrelevant to the subject of wildlife. The pest pigeons are not truly wild but are domestic stock that has gone feral. I will support steps the authorities take to humanely remove them. 안전놀이터 Mr Prabakharan's position that we should keep our distance from wildlife and that nature appreciation can be achieved by visiting parks and nature reserves is too extreme a stand.

     am delighted that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) is putting more enforcement personnel to tackle and mitigate the dangers posed by personal mobility devices. 온라인카지노 The report on errant e-scooter rider Derrick Gan Zhong Kang exposed his misdeeds and the penalty imposed as a result. However, it fell short by not citing the illegality of riding pillion, as was the case here. This is one of the rules clearly set by LTA but flouted all over the island. It could very well be why the e-scooter's braking power was compromised. The extra weight from the pillion rider could have been a contributing factor. 카지노사이트 The other area of concern is the speed limits of PMDs on pedestrian and shared paths. Such paths currently provide no protection to pedestrians from errant riders. As such, the speed limit on shared paths should be brought down from a maximum of 25kmh to 15kmh. Near accidents are common and continue to be a menace. This is especially so at zebra crossings or traffic junctions where pedestrians and mobility devices jostle for space. 온라인바카라   LTA's efforts in instilling safe riding habits and improving infrastructure to support the growing cyclist population are commendable, and I hope with new resources in place, it can do more in the area of enforcement.

    Ms June Yong Chung Mee calls for parents to interact more with their children and model the behaviour they want to see in their children, instead of filling their time with enrichment classes. 온라인바카라 Ideally, parents should be the ones to impart values to children. In reality, however, this is not always possible. Besides, most children also go through a stage of rebellion or self-assertion, of wanting to break free from parental control. Time spent in tuition or enrichment classes may actually keep some children off the streets and prevent them from turning wayward. In the past, mothers stayed home to raise children while fathers were the sole breadwinners. 카지노사이트주소 This is often not the case today. Whether out of necessity or choice, many mothers today work and children are left to their own devices for many hours in a day.   The chances of succumbing to the lure of the latest gadgets and meeting unsavoury characters online are high. Time spent in tuition classes, though pressurising or stressful, may be the lesser of two evils. Tuition classes do instil social skills in students as they learn in small groups. And I have come across tutors who inspire their students to reach for greater heights, and to never give up Students learn to persevere and be resilient too. These tutors also tell students that failures are stepping stones to success and instil feelings of self-worth. Every child has his own stress-tolerance level. Some actually thrive on some amount of pressure. Perhaps parents can allow some leeway for their children to decide if they wish to attend additional enrichment classes, depending on their interests and schedules. 바카라사이트주소 The adage, everything in moderation, applies here too. Let moderation be the key consideration when parents sign their children up for extra lessons.

    It should not come as a surprise that many SingPass users have not changed their unique online IDs from their NRIC numbers. 인터넷바카라 The availability of the option for SingPass users to use non-NRIC details as their SingPass IDs was probably lost on the public because it was implemented with other enhanced security measures such as SingPass two-factor authentication (2FA).
