Consumers Union: FCC net neutrality plan is far from neutral

 

Consumers UnionWashington, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved an initial proposal for so-called “Open Internet” rules that may allow Internet service providers to charge online companies for faster access to consumers, which have raised concerns that the plan could create fast lanes and slow lanes for Internet traffic.

How Can I Protect My Children from the Sun?

 

Centers for Disease Control and PreventionAtlanta, GA – Just a few serious sunburns can increase your child’s risk of skin cancer later in life.

Seek shade. UV rays are strongest and most harmful during midday, so it’s best to plan indoor activities then. If this is not possible, seek shade under a tree, an umbrella, or a pop-up tent. Use these options to prevent sunburn, not to seek relief after it’s happened. «Read the rest of this article»

Memorial Day’s History

 

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

U.S. Department of Veterans AffairsWashington, D.C. –  On May 5th, 1868, three years after the Civil War ended, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30th.

It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.

The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
