Can we not salvage one important thing in this horrible excuse for an administration?

Urge your Senators to restore net neutrality protections
 
The Senate is poised to vote very soon on a Congressional Review Act (CRA) Resolution that would restore net neutrality protections  the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to eliminate earlier this year. Without net neutrality, telecommunications providers are free to establish fast lanes for particular online products, throttle delivery of others, and potentially raise prices and decrease services for students and educators nationwide. Right after the FCC voted to eliminate net neutrality, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced a CRA that would repeal the FCC’s order and reinstate net neutrality.

Reports indicate that we are only one vote away from the CRA Resolution receiving Senate approval. To date, all Senate democrats and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) have committed to voting for the CRA. It is important that all senators hear from you now about your support for this resolution. Additionally, there’s a group of four senators who may be particularly close to switching from a “no” to a “yes.” These four senators are: Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO). Advocates from those four states – Louisiana, Nevada, Alaska and Colorado – are especially encouraged to contact these members and urge them to vote “yes” on the CRA.

ACTIONS TO TAKE THIS WEEK:

     1. Tweet at your Senators.
 
STEP 1: Use our handy tool to easily tweet at your Senators, asking them to support the net neutrality CRA. The system will automatically tag your Senator.

STEP 2: Choose from one of the pre-written tweets or tweet both.

     2.  Call your Senator’s office and ask them to vote “YES” on Sen. Markey’s Congressional Review Act Resolution to restore net neutrality protections.

STEP 1: Click the "Call"  button and wait to be connected to the office. Phone script will appear for you to review before you confirm you want to place the call.

STEP 2: Ask to speak with the staffer handling net neutrality. If the staffer is unavailable, ask to leave a voicemail.

The Dreamers Exhibit in Second Life

Wow. I had a fantastic hour early this morning while my lovely was sleeping and the canine brutes were resting in front of the fireplace. Lured by the login page's description, I tp'd over to the site, which promised a celebration of peace in the face of violence. 
The description of the project begins:
Because violence will not take away our ability to dream!
When we were just beginning to create this project, the events of Charlottesville happened. Our hearts stopped. We cannot do this - we thought - we must alert to the political situation we live in! The danger of tyranny. The danger of environmental disaster. The danger of xenophobia, sexism, homophobia. The danger of hate! But then we stopped.From within us came this beach, this horizon. This sea, this lake, these white clouds grew. No! We will not give up on The Dreamers. We will not give up on beauty. They will not steal the beauty of the world. They will not steal tenderness. They will not steal the life we have left.A…

Periscoping a Fall Walk across Nashville's Pedestrian Bridge

On my final day of Fall Break, which I spent mostly knocking out home-focused honey-do items (though I did get to Marrowbone Lake for one morning of fishing), I decided to take a walk over the John L. Seigenthaler Memorial Bridge. I had never done it before! My goal was to take a 360 panorama for my little side project, Nashville360VR, which has been suffering lately from my dedication to my new job at Warner Enhanced Elementary School. I did that, and on a whim I Periscoped it. Here's the video of that which I saved locally. Folks popped in and out--I don't think I had more than 20 or so concurrent viewers, but all in all I received 251 peeks over the 13 or so minutes or so of the 'cast. You won't see chat or comments (or hearts :), but you can view the video. Here:

Thanks to 'scopers for dropping in. And thanks to the powers-that-be for such a gorgeous Friday afternoon!

Here are a couple normal "pano" shots I took on my iPhone:



That is all. Oh...

Hurricane Harvey and Great Music

Hey, all,

Any and all sales of my CDBaby digital album from Alaska will, until further notice, go to help my brother Ed work through the impact the recent hurricane had on the life of his family.

Pick up some good tunes and help out, please!
