When Holly went travelling she regularly watched the moon from the beches on one of the Cook Islands, sitting talking to strangers she had just met that day. Meeting new people and making “some of her best friends for life” are the memories that make her long for her travelling days!

Inheritance in Object Oriented Programming

This is for all beginners. Learning syntax is not that difficult, it becomes second nature to you as you practice. There is always documentation to refer if you need help with the syntax. The most difficult part of learning to code is understanding these programming concepts and paradigms. They are similar across all languages. Learning them will also allow you to learn new languages easily. Always start from the basics, have patience.

A disastrous proposed FCC plan would give Internet providers power to choose the sites customers see and use
The move would roll back the Obama-era rules on net neutrality, setting the stage for a vote next month that could reshape the entire digital ecosystem.

Brian Fung at WaPo:

The Federal Communications Commission took aim at a signature Obama-era regulation Tuesday, unveiling a plan that would give Internet providers broad powers to determine what websites and online services their customers see and use.

Under the agency’s proposal, providers of high-speed Internet services, such as Comcast, Verizon and AT&T, would be able to block websites they do not like and charge Web companies for speedier delivery of their content.

The FCC’s effort would roll back its net neutrality regulation which was passed by the agency’s Democrats in 2015 and attempted to make sure all Web content, whether from big or small companies, would be treated equally by Internet providers.

The repeal of those rules would be one of the more significant deregulatory efforts by Republicans since President Trump took office. Ajit Pai, who was nominated to head the FCC by Trump in January, has said undoing the net neutrality rules was one of his top priorities, arguing that the regulation stifled innovation and was an example of government overreach.

“Under my proposal, the federal government will stop micromanaging the Internet,” Pai said in a statement Tuesday. The plan could be approved by the Republican-led FCC as early as its Dec. 14 meeting.

Pai’s remarks were cheered by conservatives as well as cable, broadband and wireless companies, which provide most of the Internet service to American homes, smartphones and other devices.

[…]

Pai’s plan would require Internet service providers to be transparent about their practices.

For example, if a provider chose to block or slow certain websites, or gave preferable treatment to content that it owned or had partnerships with, that provider would have to inform consumers of its policy on an easily accessible website.

[…]

Relying more heavily on the public promises of Internet providers is a departure from current net neutrality rules, which lay out clear bans against selectively blocking or slowing websites, as well as speeding up websites that agree to pay the providers a fee.

Repealing those rules would allow Internet providers to experiment with new ways to make money. In recent years, some broadband companies, such as AT&T, have tried offering discounts on Internet service to Americans as long as they agree to let the company monitor their Web browsing history, for example. Other companies, such as Verizon, have tried to drive users to their own apps by exempting them from mobile data limits.

Do you really think that the public shaming of the Charlotte Nazi sympathizers is right? How is this different from McCarthyism in the 1950s?

Yes, I do think it is appropriate. In fact “shame” evolved just for this purpose as a means to enforce societal norms. It is still used extensively in East Asian cultures for this purpose. It differs from McCarthyism in that it is not the Government doing it. The U.S. Constitution allows people to have vile beliefs so long as they don’t harm others or advocate the harm of others. In this case, it is employers, web hosting companies and, in one case, a heartbroken father who condemn these people. The Nazis killed not merely 6 million Jews but another 8 million Russians, Poles, Communists, Gays, Catholic Clergy and the disabled. Moreover, the war they started killed as many as 60 million civilians. 

We can, and indeed must, stand up and challenge these people.

What kind of websites would be slowed down? What's the point of net neutrality, in the head of the FCC's mind?

Startups would likely suffer the most in a world without net neutrality rules preventing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from blocking, throttling, or prioritizing certain Internet traffic. Contrary to what you’re now hearing from their corporate PR departments, ISPs have admitted that they want to be able to charge websites to communicate with ISP customers and block those that don’t or can’t pay. Naturally, cash-strapped startups are going to have a hard time paying such fees. And, because allowing ISPs to charge tolls would increase the cost of launching a web company, investors would be less likely to fund new companies. Paid prioritization programs whereby a company pays an ISP for faster service would similarly hurt startups, since larger incumbent companies can outbid smaller websites for prioritized access, leaving new companies in the proverbial slow lane. Studies on user behavior show that even very small differences in speed can have a serious impact on the viability of a new website. Startups that directly compete with ISP’s in-house services (such as video streaming) are among the most vulnerable in the event of a rollback of net neutrality, since ISPs will be sure to give their own services priority treatment. The aggregate effect of all this will likely be a reduction in startup activity, particularly in bandwidth-intensive services like video streaming and online gaming. Net neutrality rules prevent ISPs from engaging in these practices and and allow startups to compete on the quality of their products, not their capacity to pay tolls.

WIthout net neutrality, ISPs would be able to slow down – or outright block – any sites or apps that compete with their business interests, or entire categories of content like all streaming services, or all video, crypto, or gaming. The biggest ISPs in the country are also huge media companies. Comcast owns or invests in companies like MSNBC, Vox media, and Buzzfeed. Verizon owns Yahoo media. There would be nothing stopping them from slowing down sites that compete with their own business interests. The Chairman of the FCC is a former Verizon lawyer. He buys into the industry mindset that net neutrality prevents Verizon and other ISPs from charging sites and apps for privileged treatment, and is therefore bad.

Right?! The lack of consequences/the fuckups continuing ever on is just the biggest giveaway to me that this is 1000% intentional negligence. I've done work with multimillion $$$ companies in marketing and web/social media management, and there's just... no way any of this incompetence would continue to slide!! Anyone who's familiar with contracts/this industry should know this isn't normal for someone on Louis level. I've seen heads roll for WAY less, and yet...

Nothing about this makes sense from a business standpoint. It’s weird too because regardless of who is doing it, Rusty’s name is attached to it. It’s his reputation. Why is he not working harder to make it all amazing?

I needed to draw this little comic now.
I’ve been told by several people now, that I am unhappy and won’t ever find happiness in my life because I keep worrying and complaining about politics and because I don’t like to go out. 
‘Why can’t you just watch TV and enjoy?’
'Why do you waste your time drawing?’
'You don’t want to celebrate your birthday? I bet you’re just anxious.“ 
It’s very tiring because I am not unhappy. 
Most people just annoy me a lot.
I am not an introvert when I am around people, I tell them what I think all the time, the topics just make me very angry so they think I am angry while actually nobody ever wants to talk about the things I enjoy. 
I’m not actually bad at social interaction I just dislike it.
So I stay at home. 
Because dogs are better than people and the internet is full of people who are interested in stuff I like.

(trivia: I actually have that 'shut the f✿ck up’ shirt.)
