Is Cheap Broadband UnAmerican?

| | | | | | |

Broadband Reports mentioned Tim Karr's Is Cheap Broadband UnAmerican? article: "Those who support muni-broadband (and oppose state-bans on community-run Wi-Fi) are quickly branded socialists and communists by incumbent supporters. 'Telecommunications giants have mobilized a well-funded army of coin-operated think tanks, pliant legislators and lazy journalists to protect their Internet fiefdoms from these municipal internet initiatives, painting them as an affront to American innovation and free enterprise,' opines Karr."

You Can't Save Daylight

| | | |

John J. Miller's CBS News opinion talks about the complaints and history of DST (Daylight Saving Time). The reason we have DST, of course, is because the politicians have mandated it. Federal lawmakers nevertheless spent much of the 20th century insisting, with typical modesty, that they could "save daylight." Congress passed the first DST law in 1918 and repealed it the next year. Franklin Delano Roosevelt imposed year-round DST for three years during the Second World War. In 1966, Congress approved a uniform DST standard for the whole country. In the 1970s, Richard Nixon had the nation go on DST for 15 consecutive months in order to conserve energy. The last president to modify DST was Ronald Reagan, who advanced DST's start date to the first Sunday in April.

Switch off your PC (and other technologies) to save yourself some money!

| | |

Webindia123.com's article says a new study conducted by a computer magazine, PC Pro has found that people who are not bothered to turn off their computers properly are costing both the environment and their own pockets dear. According to BBC, they measured the electricity consumed by PCs, printers and TVs and found many devices were extremely hungry when it comes to eating power. A CRT (cathode ray tube) monitor left on during the day and in standby mode during the night costs an equivalent in electricity over five years as a brand new flat screen monitor.
