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.
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.
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.
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
Now I was inspired to do this show by my friend and guest Brando. This episode we will discuss people that give attitude to the officers at CBP. We will discuss how this is not in your best interest and the possible problems that you may encounter. People not familiar with the system or individuals say things without assessing whom the individual is. At the border, this will clearly result in miscalculating the un favourable end result. Our guest Brando will discuss his opinion of me and I will show our audience how this behaviour at the border can result in an unfavourable disposition.
Today we will be discussing a very very important topic. The topic is what happens when you admit to smokng Marijuana at the USA border. We will go into detail and explain the inner workings of CBP and why they are so hard on people that admit to smoking Marijuana. We will elaborate how admitting to smoking may cause you to need a US Entry Waiver. This show is different because it mostly focus on people that admit to Marijuana smoking or any drug/alcohol use. We will elaborate on the possible consequences of your actions. We will also give you "our opinion" regarding things that you may "consider"doing to help prevent you from falling into this CBP trap and ways to protect yourself. We feel that this show is especially important because we recently just got many clients that have admitted to smoking marijuana. We welcome all callers.
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.
Today Candace Benson and Deborah Chaddock Brown will talk about the down side of social media - the fact that it exposes you for who you are and gives everyone the opportunity to comment. ie. - Chief Oliver in Brimfield, OH and his social media demise this past week.
Candace Benson and Deborah Chaddock Brown Brown talk about the latest in social media for business owners.
Candace Benson and Deborah Chaddock Brown debate the merits of social media for small business.
