Cable ONE Business Brings 2 Gig Symmetrical Fiber Internet Service to Columbus

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 27 ottobre 2018

Businesses in Columbus soon will enjoy up to 2 gigabits per second of symmetrical internet speed with the launch of Cable ONE Business’ new service, Piranha Fiber – Ferociously Fast Internet. This comes five months after the launch of Piranha Fiber in Biloxi and a little over a year since the company announced plans to expand its fiber optic services for small- and medium-sized businesses into Mississippi markets.The company is finalizing construction plans for its newest fiber-optic technology, which will offer businesses both internet and telephone services. Plans indicate continual expansion into additional rural Mississippi communities for the foreseeable future. The new internet and phone services are delivered over a Passive Optical Network (PON), which combines the most favorable attributes from coax and fiber. Benefits include service delivered over an extremely reliable fiber-based architecture and shared bandwidth, which allows Cable ONE Business to spread its infrastructure costs over a broader customer base and offer the service at a price that’s affordable for most small businesses.Unlike dedicated fiber internet service – which is often unattainable for small and mid-sized businesses due to construction costs and the required dedicated connection to our network – PON is a shared service, delivering superior capacity.Several Piranha Fiber internet plans are available, beginning with 50 megabits per second and scaling to 2 gigabits per second. Pricing starts as low as $99.95/mo. when bundled with business telephone service for three years.“Piranha Fiber is the most reliable business internet service available today,” Boone said. “Customers can expect maximum uptime with minimal delays for a truly unique online experience.”For today’s businesses, a fast, reliable internet connection has moved from being a convenience to a critical component of success. Businesses rely on their internet connection to run integral processes and programs, including e-mail, e-commerce, cloud-based applications, video conferencing and more.“Fast, reliable internet access is a productivity-enhancing factor,” Boone said. “It allows businesses to increase collaboration, send and share larger files more quickly, and take advantage of more cloud-based applications in order to achieve operational efficiencies, greater productivity and growth.”Piranha Fiber is currently available in a number of Cable ONE markets outside of Mississippi, including Boise, Idaho; Fargo, North Dakota; Norfolk, Nebraska; Odessa, Texas: and Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease Statement on Trump Administration’s Proposed Changes to Medicare Part B

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 27 ottobre 2018

Addressing the burden of chronic disease to promote better health acutely depends upon enhancing not restricting access to evidence-based preventive and medical care, including physician-administered prescription drugs. We have grave concerns that the Administration’s proposed changes to Part B will create significant barriers to access to care for Medicare beneficiaries living with serious, complex, chronic conditions.Ninety-six cents of every dollar Medicare spends goes to treating beneficiaries with at least one chronic condition. Medicare beneficiaries incurring the most medical spending often have five or more chronic conditions, representing significant medical needs and individualized care to address them. Focusing on ways to reduce the prevalence and toll of chronic illnesses would improve the overall health of Medicare itself and the millions of Americans it serves.
Medicines administered under Medicare Part B involve serious, complex chronic illnesses, including most cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and other autoimmune conditions. Individual etiology of disease stage, severity, aggression level, and patient goals will factor into treatment decisions developed by physicians and their patients. The proposed changes will inject additional parties to that decision-making, ones making judgments not on the physician’s recommendations, or what’s in the best interest of the patient or her treatment goals, but on exclusively economic grounds. That includes decisions made by foreign nations where policy decisions have delayed patient access to new medicines and include judgments of “value” of health care products and services that discount the personalized nature of patient needs and responses to care.Controlling spending on health care is a priority for all Americans, but Medicare’s most vulnerable – beneficiaries living with serious, complex chronic diseases – should not be sacrificed in pursuit of that goal. Instead, we should be focusing on improvements that help Medicare garner the full benefit preventing and better managing chronic diseases to reduce costs and save lives.

The media today: After day of bombs, Trump blames media for “Anger we see today”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 27 ottobre 2018

By Pete Vernon. After a day that saw targets of his verbal barrages targeted by bombs delivered through the mail, President Trump blamed the media for the current state of political discourse. “A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!”Less than 24 hours before Trump’s tweet, just after 10am Wednesday morning, CNN’s Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow were anchoring from New York, reporting on suspicious packages that had been mailed to the Obamas and Clintons, when an alarm began wailing in their studio. Within minutes Sciutto and Harlow, along with the rest of their New York colleagues, would be out on the street, evacuated from their Columbus Circle offices due to the discovery of a similar package in the building.As the chaotic day unfolded, it became clear that a coordinated campaign was underway, targeting prominent Democrats, CNN, and liberal donor George Soros, all of whom have faced frequent criticism from President Trump and right-wing figures. Packages containing pipe bombs were mailed to or dropped off at the homes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the offices of California Representative Maxine Waters and Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, CNN’s New York office, and Soros’s suburban New York home. And this morning, The New York Times reports actor Robert De Niro received a similar package at his business address.“What happened today was an act of terror. Terror designed to kill or maim, to scare, or to silence,” Anderson Cooper said on his Wednesday night program. “If the devices were designed to kill, they failed. If they were designed to scare and to silence reporters or politicians, they failed at that as well.” Hours after the bombs were discovered, Trump took the stage at a rally in Wisconsin and issued a general condemnation of violence without mentioning the specific intended recipients of the packages, then returned to his criticism of the press. “The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories,” he said. While calling for an end to “the language of moral condemnation, Trump took no responsibility for his own incendiary rhetoric, which has often included attacks on the very people and institutions targeted by the bomber. Throughout the day, news networks flashed maps of the country showing locations in New York, California, and Florida where suspicious packages had been discovered. While there was relief that no one was injured, there was also a recognition that the incendiary rhetoric surrounding out political debates—often emanating from the president himself—had gone from word to action.Though all of the packages were addressed to frequent targets of President Trump’s criticism, the motive and political leanings of the would-be bomber are at this point unclear. But Trump has undoubtedly played a role in stoking anger at his critics, his political opponents, and news outlets—specifically CNN—who attempt to cover him honestly. In a Wednesday afternoon statement, CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker blasted Trump and his administration for their approach to the press. “There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media,” Zucker said. “The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.” (font: CJR Editors)
