FOR A FEW fleeting moments during New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s daily coronavirus briefing on Wednesday, the somber grimace that has filled our screens for weeks was briefly replaced by something resembling a smile.

“We are ready, we’re all-in,” the governor gushed. “We are New Yorkers, so we’re aggressive about it, we’re ambitious about it. … We realize that change is not only imminent, but it can actually be a friend if done the right way.”

The inspiration for these uncharacteristically good vibes was a video visit from former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who joined the governor’s briefing to announce that he will be heading up a blue-ribbon commission to reimagine New York state’s post-Covid reality, with an emphasis on permanently integrating technology into every aspect of civic life.

“The first priorities of what we’re trying to do,” Schmidt said, “are focused on telehealth, remote learning, and broadband. … We need to look for solutions that can be presented now, and accelerated, and use technology to make things better.” Lest there be any doubt that the former Google chair’s goals were purely benevolent, his video background featured a framed pair of golden angel wings.

The Brave New World of Bill Gates and Big Telecom

Adapted from an article by Robert F. Kennedy March 8, 2020 | Original article here.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote last week about Malibu police’s ticketing Point Dume surfers $1,000 apiece for using the ocean during the quarantine. Was this merely an appalling police judgment at which we will laugh post-quarantine? Or does anyone else feel that this is the first wave of compliance and obedience training for something more permanent? Are powerful state and corporate entities using the current crisis to remove basic rights, and intensify pressures to promote vaccines and surveillance? Does anyone else feel the suffocating darkness of tyranny descending on our nation? And finally, does anyone share my dread that Bill Gates—and his long-time associate Tony Fauci—will somehow be running our Brave New World?

Imagine a world where the government doesn’t need police officers to apprehend those surfers or ticket you when you violate social distancing with your girlfriend. Suppose that computers discover your beach trip by tracking your movements using a stream of information from your cell phone, your car, your GPS, facial recognition technology integrated with real-time surveillance from satellites, mounted cameras, and implanted chips. Desk-bound prosecutors or robots will notify you of your violation by text while simultaneously withdrawing your $1,000 penalty from your payroll account. Welcome to Bill Gates’ America. It’s right around the corner.

How Medical and Legal Experts Are Garnering Youtube Audiences

CoViD-19 analysts are getting millions of views on YouTube, as the platform cracks down on messages that stray from those purported by the mainstream media (MSM).

Adapted from an article by Abby Ohlheiser, May 7, 2020 | Original Technology Review article here.

When the Alex Jones was kicked off YouTube and Facebook in 2018, the lesson was supposed to be that de-platforming is effective. Without access to his millions of followers on mainstream social media, Jones became an online ghost, diminished and shouting his dangerous unfinished business to a much smaller audience. But some people online took a second lesson from the change: unique views — those that are not promoted by the mainstream media — can build a Youtube audience, as people become disillusioned with the Mainstream Media (MSM) and seek the truth.

Letter to House Leadership re: Open Radio Access Networks

May 7, 2020

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker
The Honorable Kevin McCarthy, Minority Leader
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader McCarthy:

As you consider additional legislation to maintain economic stability and stimulate growth throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we urge you to provide funding to support the development and deployment of open and interoperable wireless radio access networks (RANs) that can help enable more flexible, efficient, secure, resilient, and intelligent mobile communication. As the COVID-19 outbreak has shown, increased stress on global supply chains can threaten public safety and hinder economic growth. By investing in open radio access network (Open RAN) technologies, Congress can help facilitate a network evolution with the potential to create lasting domestic economic opportunities for American workers while increasing supply chain diversity and promoting competition.

A critical component of mobile networks, RANs serve as the connection between phones or hotspots and a carrier’s core network and the internet. As mobile traffic continues to grow, it will be necessary for our networks to evolve.

Open RAN technologies that are interoperable and based on open standards can help maximize the benefits of modern advances in communications technology like 5G. By utilizing software-based RAN architecture that leverages
machine learning, network resources may be allocated quickly to the areas where they are needed most. This could ultimately provide consumers with a more efficient mobile experience and create new opportunities to manage operations when traffic increases.

The flexible nature of Open RAN technology also creates an opportunity for a more diverse supply chain ecosystem to develop. With interfaces and hardware built to open standards, trusted manufacturers, including American vendors, will have new opportunities to enter the market and compete. This increased supply chain diversity could mean more hardware and software options for network operators globally that can compete with current state-backed equipment being produced abroad. Diversity of vendors is important to avoid a situation where a network operator is completely reliant on a single vendor to maintain operations.

4G/5G Resolution by the Town of Easton, CT

May 7, 2020

A Resolution

      calling upon all Telecommunications Companies and Public Utilities operating in Easton, Connecticut to cease the build-out of so-called [Densified] "4G/5G" Wireless Infrastructure until such technologies have been proven safe to human health and the environment through independent research and testing.

Whereas, the telecommunications industry is engaged in a massive deployment of microwave and millimeter-wave "small cell" antennas across the county to facilitate the next generation of wireless communications known as 4G/SG, and

Whereas, this new technology uses existing wireless infrastructure and new types of radio-frequency (RF) microwave radiation to transmit large amounts of data, but requires significantly closer proximity to users, resulting in the dense deployment of antennas near residences, schools, and hospitals, and

Whereas, the deployment of 4G/5G-enabled small cell antennas in our neighborhoods raises questions regarding the potential health and environmental impacts of long-term exposure to untested RF microwave radiation frequencies, and

Ziply Fiber completes acquisition of Frontier Communications’ Northwest operations

Press release May 1, 2020 | Original article here.

By Amy Edelen | amye@spokesman.com | (509) 459-5581

Kirkland-based Ziply Fiber recently closed on its acquisition of Frontier Communications’ Northwest operations.

Under the $1.35 billion acquisition, which was finalized Thursday, more than 500,000 residential and business internet, television and voice customers in Washington, Idaho, Montana and Oregon now will be served by Ziply Fiber, according to a company news release.

The company says its first priority is upgrading and growing its network in the Northwest by investing more than $500 million in improvements. Many of the projects will be slated for small and rural towns often overlooked by national providers, according to the release.

Its primary offerings will be fiber internet and phone service for residential and business customers. It will also offer a variety of internet, voice and networking services for enterprise customers. The company is also continuing to support digital subscriber line, or DSL, and television customers.

Ziply Fiber services pass near more than 1.7 million residential and business locations in its territory.

We intend to bring fiber to a lot more of our communities,” Harold Zeitz, CEO of Ziply Fiber, said in a statement. “Currently, just over 30% of the businesses and homes we pass have the ability to connect to our fiber today. Our goal is to add a lot more fiber in the coming months and years so that nearly 85% of homes and businesses can get the internet they deserve.”

Ziply Fiber retained more than 900 former Frontier Communications employees and is planning to hire 200 additional workers.

WaveDivision Capital and Searchlight Capital Partners, a global investment firm, formed a partnership last year to purchase Frontier Communications’ Northwest operations.

The sale received regulatory approval earlier this year in Washington, Oregon and Montana. WaveDivision and Searchlight Capital Partners were not required to file for approval in Idaho because its public utilities commission does not regulate broadband rates.

Ziply Fiber, in addition to its Kirkland headquarters, also has offices in Everett, WA Hayden, ID and Beaverton, OR.

Dr. Shiva Attempts to Splinter the Health Freedom Movement

For many months I have remained silent in the face of defamatory and dishonest attacks against me by Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai. My approach was to ignore the sniping to preserve the unity of the Health Freedom Movement. However, Shiva has expanded his malevolent campaign to include venomous salvos against our community’s most prominent and effective leaders, including

  • Del Bigtree
  • Mark Blaxill
  • Dr. Rashid Buttar
  • Polly Tommey
  • Taylor Winterstein

Because he now has some of our outstanding spokesmen in his gun-sites, and because his poisonous volleys have begun to damage the solidarity that is critical to our success . . . I reluctantly make this response.

Little Lies / Big Lies

I had never heard of Shiva when he approached me on the street following a January 6th, 2020 Trenton rally. We had a friendly chat and took a photo. Afterward, he tweeted that I had refused to shake his hand. A half-dozen photos of us shaking hands soon surfaced, proving his statements false. It was only then that I learned he was running as a fringe candidate for U.S. Senate against my nephew, Massachusetts Congressman Joseph Kennedy. It is axiomatic that a man who lies about small things, will also lie about the large. I made a note to fact check Shiva’s assertions. I advise others to take similar precautions.

6 GHz Wi-Fi is Coming, But Wired Fiber Optic is Still Superior

Adapted from an article by Jacob Kastrenakes, Apr 23, 2020 | Original The Verge article here.

img

In a few months, there’s going to be a lot more Wi-Fi to go around. The Federal Communications Commission voted today to open up a plot of spectrum in the 6 GHz band for unlicensed use — the same regulatory go-ahead that lets your router broadcast over the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. That means there are now more open airwaves — a lot more — that routers can use to broadcast Wi-Fi signals. Once the new spectrum is officially opened for business later this year, that should translate to faster, more reliable connections from the next generation of devices.

This is the largest spectrum addition since the FCC cleared the way for Wi-Fi in 1989, so it’s a huge deal. The new spectrum basically quadruples the amount of space available for routers and other devices, so it will mean a lot more bandwidth and a lot less interference for any device that can take advantage of it.

“This is the most monumental decision around Wi-Fi spectrum in its history, in the 20 years we’ve been around,” Kevin Robinson, marketing leader for the Wi-Fi Alliance, an industry-backed group that oversees the implementation of Wi-Fi, said ahead of the vote.

Devices are expected to start supporting 6GHz Wi-Fi by the end of 2020, so its implementation isn’t far away. When it arrives, expect to see it branded under the name “Wi-Fi 6E.”

Here’s what we know so far about what to expect.

U.S. House Bill Seeks to Eliminate Environmental Review for Many Wireless Telecommunications Facilities

Adapted from an article by B.N. Frank<, Apr 23, 2020 | Original Activistpost article here.

A terrible new House bill that was introduced by lame duck John Shimkus (R-MI) (in exchange for a parting payment from the Telecom industry?) is just bat-shit crazy

Summary

HR.6648 counters the important Aug 9, 2019 Ruling from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals that struck down a NEPA exemption for so-called "small" Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (sWTFs) in Case No. 18-1129 — Keetowah et. al v. FCC.

This Wireless industry-friendly bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives says that the FCC does not need to perform any environmental review for Densified 4G and 5G and sWTF under the National Environmental Policy Act.

Language from Bill HR.6648.

The FCC shall not be required to perform, and may not require any entity regulated by the Commission to perform, any review under such Act or division as a condition of permitting the placement and installation of a communications facility if the new facility —

  • will be located within a public right-of-way; and

  • is not more than 50 feet tall or 10 feet higher than any existing structure in the public right-of-way, whichever is higher;

  • the placement and installation involve the expansion of the site of an existing facility not more than 30 feet in any direction.
