Among the FCC majority that approved the rules—the vote was 3-2—was Mignon Clyburn, the first African American female chair of the FCC. She has talked frequently about the fact that lower-income and minorities are more reliant on mobile for broadband access than the general population, but argued they also deserved "a robust experience on par with their wired peers," and thus supported "erasing the distinction."

No charges for Missouri homeowner over military headstone patio | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
(Reuters) - A Missouri man who used dozens of military headstones to make a patio at his house will not face criminal charges and the headstones would be destroyed, authorities said on Tuesday. The headstones the unidentified homeowner used were never U.S. government property, never placed at a cemetery or stolen and no state of federal charges will result, Ozark County Sheriff Darrin Reed said. The homeowner told ABC television affiliate KSPR in Springfield, Missouri, that he regretted using the headstones, which he found in a landfill about a decade ago.

Truck of corpses, new shipwreck intensify Europe's migrant crisis | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
By Karin Strohecker PARNDORF, Austria (Reuters) - As many as 50 corpses were found in a parked truck in Austria on Thursday, and another migrant boat sank off Libya, deepening a crisis that is overwhelming Europe and throwing up new tragedies by the day. The abandoned refrigerated truck was found by an Austrian motorway patrol near the Hungarian border, with fluids from the decomposing bodies seeping from its back door. "One can maybe assume that the deaths occurred one-and-a-half to two days ago," Hans Peter Doskozil, police chief in the province of Burgenland, told a news conference, adding that "many things" indicated the migrants were already dead when the truck crossed the border.

Stephan Petett's curator insight, August 27, 8:40 PM

Hacking has become a fear nationally, now it has taken the next step towards hacking American Airlines; an international corporation. The hackers have been traced to China, with this most recent hacking the hackers have gained personal information of millions of U.S citizens that have traveled with American Airlines. New Net Neutrality laws are being formed to combat the intense wave of hacking across the globe. Hacking has become a fear worldwide, millions of people's personal information is being leaked. Knowing that the hackers are Chinese this definitely adds tot he tension building up between the U.S and China. I feel that hackers need to be traced and punished for their actions, and cyber security definitely needs to be strengthened. We can not allow private information of citizens to be taken and used.
