Mike Marcellin, senior vice president of NetApp, talks about the work that US Ignite is doing in 31 communities across the country to encourage development of next-generation broadband networks and applications that run on them. The nonprofit is working in the areas of manufacturing, education, energy, healthcare and others and collaborating with developers who are creating innovative applications that need high-speed broadband networks to run effectively and efficiently.
State laws mandating these public-owned broadband networks get voter approval through referendum campaigns used to mean near-certain death for any project. Kiss those days goodbye! Meet the winners who have turned the tide.
November 4, EIGHT towns and counties all passed ballot initiatives to return the authority to pursue broadband to their constituents. With 70% or more of the vote. Predominately Democrat or Republican didn’t matter. How did they do that!? Representatives of Boulder, Rio Blanco, San Miguel, Yuma County and other communities give us the scoop on how they pulled off these big wins.
We’re going to find out:
Are the political winds blowing heavily community broadband’s way?
At the local level, is broadband now a bipartisan issue?
What tactics were effective getting these referenda passed?
What happened to the giant telcos and cable companies?
What comes next for these communities?
Will there be a flood of communities rolling out their own ballot initiatives?
Well our soon to be new cohost crossed the border today and she will share her experience dealing with C.B.P. It was a very interesting experience and she has a fascinating story to tell. She learned a lot today and and happily her experience will add to the knowledge database. She was a bit dumbfounded by the questions that they asked her though. This show is excellent for people that have just received their first(and hopefully only) us entry waiver. It may be considered a good template for you to use as you see fit. We will also briefly touch upon whom you should use to resolve your issue(meaning a lawyer or not) and get a us entry waiver(if needed). We welcome all people that want to call in. However we will keep the questions on relevant things surrounding usa border crossing issues and applicable USA immigration law. Trolls be warned! We are also going to talk about scandalous things...Like the games than women play and how being a nice boy will get you to finish last. Like how society has changed and how we have to reign in feminism. So our show will have two parts. We will even be talking about Jian Ghomeshi and why I know that he is innocent
We will do a show that will discuss permanent us entry waivers. Now a actual permanent us entry waiver is called a Nonimmigrant Border Crossing Card("BCC"). The BCC can only be used to enter the United States from contiguous territory and only for entry under visitor status B-1/ B-2.
The U.S. State Department has not been issuing the BCCs to Canadians since April 1, 1998.
An INA §212(d)(3) waiver(us entry waiver) issued along with an INS BCC was valid for the duration of the card. Such waivers are valid indefinitely since the old BCCs were valid until revoked.
There are no new regulations permitting the issuance of new BCCs to Canadians. Canadians with these indefinite waivers could continue to use them.
However, there is 2nd way to get cleared for life. Not every conviction will require a us entry waiver. Some CBP officers have no idea whether your offence will make you inadmissible or not. It is easier for them to send you home with a waiver packet than to try and figure it out. By obtaining a "September Letter," will allow the offence that you have been convicted of to be waived permanently. So despite the fact that it is not actually called a pemanent us entry waiver...Your specific conviction is permanently waived based on CBP determining that your offence does not make you inadmissible. We will discuss this process and how to obtain one.
Ok it has come to my attention that a lot of people don't understand the connection between admitting to criminal specific details, being denied entry to the USA and then needing a us entry waiver. This show will clarify/explain how CBP uses the fact that a person admitting to certain elements of an offence(criminal or not) can make them inadmissibile. Often a person will start becoming a chatter box and talk themselves into needing a US Entry Waiver. Afterwards, we hope that you can under the connection between admitting to things at the border will cause you future grief. We understand that people are generally not familiar with USA immigration law & CBP procedures...However, we tire of explaining the same thing repeatedly to people about what they say can and will be used against them at the border. If we had a dime for everyone that said "I was just trying to be honest," we could retire today. Persons not born and raised in Canada and immigrate here, rarely make this mistake when dealing with government officials.Hence it is much easier to clear them. We would like you to have the same fortitude which could prevent you from needing a us entry waiver. Please listen to this show very carefully and we definitely welcome calls from anyone. We don't even mind trolls calling because they would actually help us to provide information to you. Listening to this could prevent you from needing a us entry waiver and future headaches.
Ok today I had an inspiring comment in one of my facebook Groups. Someone there said that they would not hire my company because I was "too Much" in their face? Not that I was interested in her business anyway. I said then and I still stand by the fact that we are more than happy with our B.C. & Alberta markets. We have little to no desire to obtain Ontario(Except Brampton). I find that in my business, 99% of the clients appreciate the blunt truth/honesty we give them about their cases. Just tonite I truthfully told one lad that he would not qualify for a permanent waiver. I also told him that he should come to the office and we will give him a few trade secret to use to get a longer waiver. All at no charge whatsoever(although he can pay for the cup of tea). We never tell people what they want to hear for whatever reason. We will diligently prepare their case with the perspective that it is our job to do the best job that can be done for their particular case. I compare it to if you hire a criminal defence lawyer.... Do you want to hire one that is a "nice guy" or do you want one that is a "hard charging pit bull" that will aggressively represent you in order for you to win! I think most will pick Rover aka Spike! Well we have the same mindset when we prepare your #usentrywaiver case. We will use whatever tools at our disposal to get you the best possible win. Being a staunch P1 of the Tom Leykis Show, www.blowmeuptom.com, This hour will briefly describe why you want an aggressive rep/preparer of your case and other services that you pay for that benefit you and have your best interest at heart. The rest of the show will be what Tom calls "Wide Open Phones." Anyone can call in to discuss whatever they want. No topic is taboo and it does not even have to do with #usentrywaivers. Point of this show is to give the audience a vessel to voice their opinion. Trolls are especially welcome.
Today we will be interviewing 1-2 people that recently broke records. One person had a permanent ban to the USA. His former lawyer told him to just make a life in Canada and that he would never ever be allowed to return the USA for the rest of his life. Well we got him his approval to enter and it only took Homeland Security 6 weeks! The other person had a case that took Homeland Security 2.5 years to clear! Note that neither one of them had any criminality issues or ever had a criminal record whatsoever! They will explain what happened to them and the grief that they had experienced from the system.
A large majority of municipal and public utility broadband networks are successes. Next Century Cities lays out several paths to help your community to reach this winner's circle.
NCC Executive Director Deb Socia describes for listeners a range of business and funding models for community broadband that are creating success stories around the country. Communities such as Santa Monica, CA and Mount Vernon, WA built success by using their networks for replace T1 lines and other old communications infrastructure. Others such as Monticello, MN formed public private partnerships. Jackson, TN and Cedar Falls, IA sell services direct to subscribers.
Socia's organization has assembled quite the brain trust of communities and she is happy to share some of that knowledge. Listeners will get insights into:
preventing critics from defining your success;
defining parameters and goals for success based on constituents' broadband needs;
helping non-technical people understand and become excited about how the network will impact them; and
promoting your successes.
Next Century Cities is a membership organization providing knowledge and peer- support for communities and their elected leaders, including mayors and other officials, as they seek to ensure that all have access to fast, affordable, and reliable Internet.
ATTENTION: There is heavy static in show's first 3-4 minutes, but it clears up after that.
The pride of the pack when it comes to community broadband business models is the open-access model in which the local government or public utility owns the physical network and private-sector ISPs deliver services to subscribers. It looks like a relatively easy model to pursue, and dozens of communities say this is their preferred option. In reality, making open access work is a monster challenge requiring intense, constant effort.
Mt. Vernon, WA has built a small cadre of ISPs for its open-access fiber network. Information Services Director Kim Kleppe details how they overcame obstacles and seized opportunities to build a successful network that is financially sustainable. Listeners will learn:
why getting the second ISP is the hardest job in the world;
how to set pricing structure
tips for creating win-win situations
marketing tactics that attract ISPs and subscribers
how to keep everyone on the same page
Kleppe and his colleagues have 12 years experience building and refining their open access model. Communities just getting their networks off the ground can really benefit from the lessons of those who've been in the trenches a while.
