    "Celebrity Interracial Adoption: Love Or Fad?"

    in Lifestyle

    Our host returns live tonight at 11 pm...tonight we will be revisiting the subject of celebrity interracial adoption. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were among the first Hollywood couples known for adopting internationally. In the most recent time period, many more celebrities have come forth to do the same, and the difference is that more Black children are the adoptees than ever before. The challenges of standard adoption in itself fare difficult enough, and one of the major challenges is the desire of the adoptee to connect with his or her identity. Are the challenges of interracial adoption by high profile figures doubled? Is the cultural identity of the adoptee at a higher risk of being eradicated by these adoptees? And in cases such as Madonna who has been in controversy for making racial slurs and has now adopted two more Black children, are these celebrities adopting out of love or commercial gain? Join in tonight at 11 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.

    NTIA Gives Your Broadband Adoption Plans Wings

    in Internet

    As the pace of network buildouts increases, communities sooner or later must face the reality that these networks succeed or fail largely on the strength of broadband adoption, a.k.a. marketing and sales. Either you have enough subscribers (paying or otherwise) for the network, or the network is not financially sustainable.
    NTIA Program Director for Public Computing and Broadband Adoption Laura Breeden informs listeners about a new, detailed guide book the agency developed to help you create and implement successful adoption programs. She also presents practical tips for producing making broadband relevant for hard-to-reach constituents.
    Ms. Breeden addresses:
    *  developing the right elements of an adoption program; *  effective awareness and outreach activities; *  getting affordable computers and Internet access to constituents; and *  designing digital literacy training that works.

    The Obama Broadband Doctrine, Cedar Falls and What's Next

    in Internet

    Cedar Falls, IA became Ground Zero for launching a Presidential drive for gigabit community-owned broadband throughout the U.S. Learn how this 20-year old network took center stage last week as the latest beacon leading cities nationwide on the path to faster, better public-owned broadband. 


    Broadband is driving Cedar Fall's economic activities. Listeners get a detailed breakdown of the city's progress since upgrading to a gigabit network a year ago from Bob Seymour, Planner III/Economic Development. Curtis Dean, Broadband Services Coordinator for the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities provides insights to expected developments in the state's broadband future. 


    President Obama held up Cedar Falls as a great example of the value of public braodband networks in helping to meet America's highspeed Internet needs, and why we need giant service providers to stop blocking communities' ability to become the next gigabit success story. Our guests offer listeners advice on how their communities can overcome the challenges of these statutes.

    "Who Am I?..Does Interracial Adoption Cause Loss Of Identity?"

    in Lifestyle

    Will You Know Broadband Success When You See It?

    in Internet

    A big majority of the hundreds of citywide and partial-reach broadband networks are celebrated successes by their stakeholders, businesses and residential subscribers, disproving critics who wrongly claim all public-owned networks are failures. Interviews live from the Kansas City Gigabit Summit reveal what it means to have a winning community broadband network.


    Delegates from eight of the communities sharing their success stories with Summit attendees join us to give listeners insights to setting and meeting broadband goals. It is important to understand that, unlike private service providers, "return on investment" (ROI) is very different for communities focused on using broadband to improve economic development, transform healthcare delivery and otherwise serve the public good. 


    Guests, including those representing Winthrop, MN, Chattanooga and Jackson, TN, Monmouth, OR and Salisbury, NC, also discuss how they funded their networks, and offer advice for meeting the money challenge as opportunities and financing options evolve. One of the several strengths public entities have over private companies is the ability to repay debt over 20 or 25 years rather than being driven to meet stockholder needs for quick returns.    


    The Gigabit Summit is a national gathering of cities with broadband networks that are educating, helping and encouraging cities just beginning their broadband journeys. Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri are the proud hosts and gigabit showcase cities kicking off 2015 with the first big broadband educational conference of the year.
