In essence, the FCC has done the job Congress told it to do many years ago. However, the cable and telephone industry have sensed an opportunity to exploit the flurry of repeals Congress has taken up and laid out a series of misleading arguments to convince Congress to proactively do harm to your privacy . They were successful at convincing 50 U.S. Senators to go along with their plan. Now the fight has moved to the House of Representatives. There is only one way to stop them from winning.

Kate Middleton can never be an Everywoman, however hard the palace tries The Duchess of Cambridge gave a talk at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists last week on behalf of a series of filmsOut of the Blueproduced by the Best Beginnings organisation, promoting good mental health for parents and their children.
