"By failing to meet their own lax deadline for shutting down th...

    The receptionist, as always, had opened the mail before Kathleen Chafin came in to work that morning. And everyone in the office seemed to be staring at Chafin as she picked up a stack of envelopes and walked off toward her desk. Somewhere along the way, a letter fell out of the pile. And as Chafin stopped to pick it up, she couldn’t help noticing that everyone else in the room stopped too, watching for her reaction. The letter was from somebody named Tom in Omaha, Nebraska.

    FCC Commissioner Thinks Ultra-Fast Broadband Just a 'Novelty'

    One of the hallmarks of Tom Wheeler's FCC was a renewed focus on competition at higher broadband speeds. It's one of the reasons the last FCC bumped the standard definition of broadband from a measly 4 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up, to 25 Mbps down, and 3 Mbps up. That higher benchmark allowed the FCC to point out that roughly two-thirds of American homes lack access to more than one ISP at 25 Mbps or better...

    Trust papers show Trump still closely linked to business empire

    Just days before his inauguration, President-elect Donald Trump stood beside his tax lawyer at a midtown Manhattan news conference as she announced that he planned to place his vast business holdings in a trust, a move she said would allay fears that he might exploit the Oval Office for personal gain. However, questions were left unanswered — including who would ultimately benefit from the trust — raising concerns about just how meaningful the move was. Records have emerged that show just ho...

    The West’s Largest Coal Plant May Close. It’s a Big Deal.

    The largest coal-fired power plant in the West — one of the biggest climate polluters in the nation — could close later this year, a major symbolic blow to the future of coal as the backbone of America’s electric power grid. The owners of Arizona’s Navajo Generating Station northeast of the Grand Canyon announced in early January that low natural gas prices and the rising costs of generating electricity using coal make it too expensive to operate the plant. A decision on the plant’s fa...

    Laser pen pointers face arrest under new law

    The police are to be given new powers to arrest and prosecute people who use laser pens to target pilots, train and taxi drivers. At present it is an offence to shine lasers at pilots, with offenders facing fines of up to £2,500, but officers must prove a person endangered the aircraft when committing the offence. A change in legislation means police will only have to prove the offence, and will be extended to cover all forms of transport including planes, trains and taxis.
