Fresh update on "internet access" discussed on The Sean Hannity Show
"And looking for a way to work from home and make 500 to $5000 a day. This is it. Heck, I sometimes work from Starbucks or my hotel. If I'm traveling anywhere, I have Internet access. I'm in business. It's the real deal. We have members like myself, Michael and Daniel, who you heard from just a little bit ago, and many others in almost every city in America. For years, it was like on ly the top 1% could get rich from Wall Street, and this is finally the chance for the rest of us to take advantage of Wall Street and make some real money. Yeah. I mean, why should only the wealthy have access to this type of earning potential and what I love is there's no limit to how much you could make. I make more than I ever thought I would make doing this and John. I make a lot more than I used to make slaving away 50 hours a week at my old jail B. And you know, as we all know, it takes money to bank money, So you are going to need a small investment to get started. This is not like starting a brick and mortar business where you're going to need hundreds of thousands of dollars to start. Most people get started with us with well under $10,000, and a lot of that investment I'm talking about is your money that you're going to use to trade to make more money? We'll explain how to open a brokerage account that you will control and trade with. I don't know of any other legitimate business that you can start for. Well under $10,000. You know, we talked earlier in the show about the cost to open up a restaurant or retail business. Not only can that cost hundreds of thousands up front, but it can take years to turn a profit. This is not that program if you follow our system. You should be making money by the end of your first month. Now it's not a get rich, quick scheme, no legitimate businesses, But I can tell you I have days when I make more money in one day than my friends make in a month. And I did it, working from home and clicking a mouse. And when you look at how affordable it is to get started with us, compared to how much money you can make. There's nothing else out there that you can start with his little oven investment and beyond pace to making six figures within a year. Like we talked about earlier. We have all different types of people in the group from business people to housewives to retirees. The one thing that we have in common in this group is a burning desire to achieve the American dream. I used to be just like a lot of people out there. Listening to the show. I worked in middle management at a big corporation. Working a ton of ours, and I used to always think There's gotta be a better way. And if you are someone that has a desire to be a successful business owner, we will show you.

COVID-19 Learning Hubs
"Over affluent parents organizing private learning pods. You have found that there's actually an alternative emerging for families who don't have the means to hire private nannies or tutors. Tell us about that alternative. Yes, So I've been tracking these all over the country in New York City's Amber disco to Memphis, Tennessee, and they're sometimes called learning Hubbs or learning labs. And these air being organized by cities themselves or by school districts offer groups of students a safe place to go during the day and help with remote learning and free WiFi, which a lot of families don't have. And what's really important is they're either free thes. Cubs or very low cost and subsidised for the families that need it. So what exactly do these learning labs heir Learning hubs look like It's it's combo school, plus aftercare yet, basically so these air, you know, obviously really small groups of kids that's important for Corona virus safety. The locations are ranging from, You know, a school building A Y M C. A. A library. Some organizations are looking at the leasing space is like maybe even an empty university campus or a gym. And then, in some cases, school employees are actually working at thes helps. For example, I remember Station reporter over you has a WW Eno. She visited two of these learning hubs in New Orleans. And, she says, while child care is a really big draw. Families are also coming for the WiFi. Let's take a Listen. Dwight D. Eisenhower Charter School School leaders greet mass clad students as they make their way into the building. School normally serves more than 600 students. But today it's expecting fewer than two dozen It's because in New Orleans public schools are technically still close and learning is entirely virtual. Students that are here are attending the schools learning, huh? The cafeteria. Kids were separated into socially distance groups of nine each, quietly working away on their own device. They are loved in their signs up everywhere for the WiFi for she wants to get on to And then there are a lot of adults floating around to help and all the kids are wearing masks. Faculty are wearing masks and face shields as well. Hubs run by educators. Eisenhower principal Rolanda Green says a lot of students are here. For one thing. It literally is to get Internet access. And if you needed technology, we have it here available for you. City estimates that more than 9000 New Orleans students may not have Internet access for remote learning. It's far more kids in the local learning hubs are currently serving. Eisenhower is part of the inspired Nolan Charter Schools Network, which is funding and operating free hubs for almost 600 students. New Orleans public schools has committed to providing every student with a tablet or a laptop. But the devices aren't very helpful without an Internet connection. You can have a computer and can't utilize Google glass rooms right. That's Timlin, Sam's inspired Nola's director of community engagement. She says the hubs are an essential tool for ensuring equal access to virtual learning. She also points out that in New Orleans, a majority black school district, white Children are more likely to attend. A private school are private and parochial schools are back in session. None of our public schools are So we'll white Children are more likely to be back in the classroom. Black and brown students are mostly learning from home in many cases without reliable Internet.

I just think I needed the time away from all the noise and distracted at home to come here and I quietly A peaceful Emily Wolf with the mayor's Office of Youth and Families says the city has tried to make the hubs accessible, especially for low income families and those with no Internet. There is still considerable barriers. Families are responsible for transportation and the hubs get funding from the federal government, which involves a lot of paperwork. You know, we wish we could just have him fill out a simple registration performing get signed up right away. But that made it a little bit slower. And unfortunately, you know, for some families, they see all of that. And It's just a barrier. Wolf says. Family submitted interest forms for more than 1000 students in mid August, But so far only 100 Children are registered. City has room for 500 students and is already looking to expand. While the district's youngest students have the option to return to the classroom in mid September, older students will continue with virtual learning until at least mid October. For NPR
Controversial Statues Honoring Christopher Columbus Vandalized Across the US
"Here in Massachusetts will be at home Learning online this fall, there is an ongoing dispute growing over where teachers will be working from. On Friday, Massachusetts Commissioner of Education Jeffrey Riley published a guideline for remote learning that suggest teachers report to their schools to work from classrooms rather than from home. The guidelines say teaching from a school will have students become familiar with the classroom and help ease the transition to in person. Instruction will allow teachers to use instructional materials, they may not have a home. Ensure teachers have reliable Internet access and allow teachers to work together with colleagues and administrators. But the Massachusetts Teachers Association rejects the recommendation, calling it paternalistic and punitive. Citing safety concerns. The union says it's fine if educators prefer to work from school but should not be forced to art. Cohen

Chaotic start to school year
"Well, we have a very odd school year. It's underway in some parts of the country. Other places won't even be underway till after Labor Day, but it is haphazard and. To call it, weird would not encompass it. Producer Joel has to school age kids and what's your kids story as far as their school. So they pushed back the start date for for two weeks of school in the first nine weeks are going to be virtual learning. And your kids are young young. So virtual learning at. Their age five, seven years old. That's right. Yeah. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be Kinda hard to do the virtual learning thing You know we did my my five year old was in pre k. last year, and you know when they when they stopped going in person, we basically abandoned the online learning pretty quickly because for four year old to try to learn in front of a computer is is darn near impossible. Unless, it was a cartoon video, right exactly and I have a ninth grader, a high schooler who for now is going back into the classroom and they have a color coded system that I talked about a few weeks ago, which is yellow orange and red red is online. Only yellow is in the classroom four days a week in person orange two days a week in person, and they're starting off at yellow four days a week, and they are doing extreme distancing of the kids hundred percent mass compliance. And it is. Everything, they could do to try to deal with the public health side, my daughter, who is a college junior. Her school. Is Online, only all the way at least till January and I. Can tell you, she hated online march, April and May. And It was a terrible way to finish her sophomore year, and now she's got it all fall long as a college junior. They did cut the tuition though four percent. Still a crazy amount of money. But they gave a small tuition reduction. For the fact that is online. and. So this is something all of us are going to experience. It's going to keep changing. A suburb of Atlanta, that was much in the news nationally actually internationally for starting back school with no mass required no distancing required and immediately ended up with an outbreak of corona virus, and now is online only till they figure out what to do next. and. So this is hard for parents. especially, anytime, family lives in a multi generational household with grandparents living under the same rule. Roof is a school age. Grandkids is an intensely dangerous thing. If GRANDKID BRINGS CORONA virus from school and gives it to a grandparent in the house, the fatalities from Corona virus overwhelmingly had been among older Americans, and so the schools will benefit the most and the kids benefit the most from being in the classroom. But the teachers many of which may have a pre existing condition or endanger, and that's why having public health protocol for the kids is so important, but it's also important because. Preventing an outbreak in the school allows the school potentially to stay in person where it cannot otherwise. So. I. Hope that. We're able to keep our kids in school people like me who are fortunate to have at least one kid gets to go back in the classroom, but for this to work going forward. The safety protocols have to come first. So teachers staff. Administrators. Are, as safe as they can be in the school environment and that the kids coming home. Keep their. Family, members safe. That kids are not just like Joel's. Young, child, was not able to. Hang with the online thing, a lot of kids can't, and then other kids don't even have Internet access and can't do so.
The Internet Is Everything. But Is It Accessible?
"We spent some time digging into just how crucial Internet access is during the pandemic. But even if you have access to the Internet, many parts of it are still not accessible this summer, the Americans with Disabilities Act the ADA turned thirty years old and a lot of the tech that makes things convenient for everyone can be game changing for people with disabilities, screen readers that help visually impaired people read websites and software that lets us type with our voice, Nicholas? Dean, how does a Web accessibility consultant and trainer? He says that? That despite these advances, some products that claim to help actually make things worse. There is no doubt in my mind that we must include people with disabilities at every stage of any project. An example here there's a solution for web accessibility that his being pushed really hard lately, and those are overlays. So you you go, you pay for a service, they inject one line of code and your site, and they claim that it makes the site accessible. When in fact, it reduces accessibility, it is not reliable it conflicts with users. assistive technologies, and we have a solution that is really appealing to people that don't have a disability. They're appealing to people think that can get quick fix. But in fact, it's breaking things. So. When you are advising companies, what features do you tell them that they should include in their websites to make those sites more accessible while there's there's a few things to to focus on to look at making sure you can use the site with keyboard. Only you WANNA, make sure your color contrasts are sufficient something that's been very fashionable as great text on grey background That's really Really, really hard to beat for people that have low vision, and incidentally, if you try to read it on your cellphone outside in full sun chances are you're not gonna be able to read it either, and this is where I'm saying accessibility is good for everyone. Those are really good tips for companies designing their websites. But what can we do to make say our social media posts more accessible. Twitter now offers the ability to add descriptions or alternate text for images and I urge everybody to actually take a moment and described image. They're posting be careful about using emojis too much screen reader users are really going to struggle always think as to how is this? GonNa. Be perceived and how can I make sure that more people can get the message? What kind of innovations in tech are you excited about? As it pertains to the disability community? There's a lot of things happening when we're looking at tick a lot of the excitement, Ron that right now is Rhonda. Emergence and there's a lot of that that can be leveraged for for accessibility. For example, you may have heard of using a I to. Interpret. What a photo is and be able to give her a description of that fo four screen reader users or using air. I. For automating transcription for shows like the one we're having right now. So there's there's a lot of promise in in that field at the same time I. Think we have to be aware that there's there's promise, but it's not quite ready. For Primetime, a lot of the automated transcription or automated captions. You may see on, Youtube, for example, are not one hundred percent accurate. Especially if people have a bit of an accent or use a tech lingo. The accuracy is not perfect. So as a result, people who rely on captions or transcripts will not get. All the information. So they may get eighty percent or eighty, five percent and those ten or fifteen percent missing can be crucial. So. That's that's exciting. There's stuff moving. It's going to, it's going to help, but it's going to. It's not helping now because we can't rely on it and I think that's That's probably a a trap that we have to be careful not to fall into, is that while the technology is there, the technology's not perfect yet? So we can't rely on twitter can't decide well, I don't need to bother. Describing my images when I post on social media, because there's no intelligence that can do that yet while we're not quite there yet. So we have to be careful to. Not Get carried away with excitement as to what's new and shiny and make sure that we still you ju-, diligence to make sure accessibility is taken care of by humans. Nicholas? Is A web accessibility consultant and trainer.

The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access
"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.
Online learning requires internet access and a device for teachers, too
Learning Hubs Aim To Stop Students From Falling Behind
"These days. Among parents Pod, which refers to a small group of kids of similar age being taught by a private tutor is a supplement to the distance learning we are expecting when public schools get going in a couple of weeks. These are being criticized by some. They see them as elitist and exclusionary. But KCBS reporter Holly Kwan found out there's a different word that lower income parents in Oakland are using for something that sounds pretty similar. They're calling these hubs hub is what Lakisha Young, executive director of the nonprofit education advocacy group, Oakland reach calls their version ofthe online learning, but it's more people hit. Our communities are great, gnarled solutions right. They raised $350,000 to create a summer learning hub where kids would get Academics in the morning cooking martial arts and other fun stuff. In the afternoon. We'll have provided laptops to all of our families. So all the kids have laptops for families who do not have reliable Internet access or Internet access. We provided T Mobile hot spots of which we're playing for the plans for a year and providing technical support. Just under 200 kids were in the summer classes of no more than 20 But fall could bring higher demand with the group doing outreach to parents not happy about the way their kids were being taught even before the pandemic hit less than 30% of black and brown arena grade level, So we're not jumping for joy to reconnect ourselves. Our family's right to like an educational system that actually wasn't servant kids all that great to begin with. So we've got to figure this out. Young says. This isn't a stopgap measure. Distance. Learning isn't optimal for anyone, regardless of income. But that shouldn't stop parents from creating the best learning opportunity. They can. We didn't just set this up was like to give you something. We set this up to give you something Great because our families aspirations. Holly are for these kids to go to college. And so we can't let a pandemic throw that off track. Why you think that people are creating pots? They've got the same. I got the same aspirations for their kids. For some parents, that means shouldering their
Broadband for All?
"I have two guests joining us I I want to say welcome to agree to disagree to G. G soon TJ year distinguished fellow at Georgetown. Law and you are recognized as one of the nation's foremost advocates for open and affordable Internet, welcome to intelligence squared. Thanks, John and your opponent in the conversation. It's different from saying opponent in a debate, but the opposing view in the conversation is brought to us by Christopher Christopher welcome to intelligence squared, and to agree to disagree your professor at Penn Law, and among the leading authorities on law and technology today. Great to have you with us. Thank you for having me. So I WANNA start by putting before the two of you, a series of very short questions and all I want to hear from you is whether you agree with the statement says or whether you disagree and I'm going to start. Statement number one for millions of Americans pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet to substitute for or enhance variety of normally face to face activities such as getting an education being seen by a doctor going to the bank shopping for basic needs again. The pandemic has increased reliance on the Internet for those things. Do you agree or disagree with that Statement Agree Chris Totally agree? Second Statement, the thirty three million Americans who lack broadband service in their own homes are disadvantaged by that fact, G G I don't agree with the number, but I agree with the statement. Correct me on the member. So thirty, three million, a third of American households don't have Internet access. The FCC's numbers, which are actually less than thirty three million. They're closer to eighteen million grossly under understate the number of Americans. Who Don't have access to the broadband internet? A thirty three million is too little as well. I testified in front of Congress that it's closer to one hundred, forty, one million okay Microsoft estimates that is closer to one, hundred, sixty, two million all right so somewhere between thirty three million in one hundred sixty two million Americans lack of broadband service in their own homes. Are disadvantaged by that fact. Do you agree or disagree great? Chris without disputing the numbers at this point are those without broadband in their homes disadvantaged by that fact, absolutely the third question, the user experience on faster broadband connection is preferable to the experience on a slower connection. Kiji, agree a hundred percent. Chris wanted to know more about what you mean faster and slower the generally. Yes, it's always better to be faster. There is diminishing returns. We're GONNA talk about gigabit speeds at some point I presume, and basically there's a point where you just don't need any more speed, but within a certain range absolutely okay. The fourth question broadband service should be seen as a right underlaw gee-gee. I think it's essential a writer very very legalistic term I think every American should have Internet access whether it's a right like the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It's hard for me to agree with that statement depending on what you mean by right. If, you're asking me if everybody should have it whether it's an essential service, I agree one hundred percent. Asking me it's. Is it a right under the bill of rights? I would disagree. Chris I think Z. said a perfectly. It's an important service, but I don't think for him. Getting rights, discourse helps okay. It's very interesting.
