t that the FCC reports a county as having total access if ONE broadband connection is used. If you can only imagine how that skews the true data about the TRUE DIGITAL DIVIDE.
I asked my teen about her school cohort. She says half don't have any internet access at home. <20% have wireless or cable broadband and the rest have dial-up.
Our public library has broadband internet access, yet approximately 75% of the school district's students live in the country. Most students ride a bus, so they have to leave within minutes after school is out.
My parents would love to have broadband, and they could pay for the monthly service, but it is unavailable where they live. Dial-up is deplorable in today's environment. ATT says they can't get DSL services either.…
er a series of monthly webinars for Belgian English language teachers and for the at-large ELT community. Vicki and Mieke thought that you would be a great addition to our line-up.
A little about the BELTA Webinars:
They are usually offered on a Sunday afternoon, around 4 pm CET.
They last about one hour, which includes a short introduction from a BELTA officer, your presentation, and time for questions.
The session is recorded. The recorded session and any materials for the webinar are then placed in our secure ‘Members Only’ area for BELTA members to revisit your presentation or to view it for the first time.
You choose the topic, but we are happy to suggest topics that might be of interest to our members as well.
The webinars should be interactive.
In the past, our webinars have been attended by experienced teachers, teacher trainees, freelance teachers, and school administrators. The audience is diverse, allowing for a range of topics to be presented.
We are looking for presenters for 2014, except for the months of March, April and August. We will work with you and the person in charge of the virtual environment to find a date and time that is agreeable for all parties.
If you are interested in being a presenter, please contact me at this email address – firstname.lastname@example.org.

ps on perinatal care and prevention of diseases of adults in childhood.
David wrote something that is crucial to my mind :" Is it no longer possible to call on our brightest intellectuals, most brillant doctors/scientists and other experts in economics and operations/processes to find the best solution for Americans? ".
The trouble is there is a statistical prediction of what you would need as an average human being. I pay for medical insurance on a monthly basis ,but did not see any doctors for 8 years. Where did my money go? I do not want any statistics to guide me in my decisions. I want to invest my money, make a profit and pay not what doctors
charge uninsured people, but negotiated prices with some insurance companies. I worked in medical billing and for billing comparies, getting money for hospitals from insurance companies.
I am trying to give you another point of view for the sake of the argument. There are a lot of mistakes made by doctors, which nobody knows about.There 5 times more
gall bladder excisions in the USA then in Europe. It is easier. Newborns are saved with
severe brain hemorrhages, leading to cerebral palsies . In Europe those babies are taken of respirators and so on. The point is the same ,complex problems can not be solved by three people.Even we can not describe the whole system so three of us could figure out the solution.I think it is impossible. There are research institutes, statisticians, economists, doctors, prices , drugs etc . Multidisciplinary analysis made
public,computerized analysis would help us. Where is the government ? Of no use.
Evidently even Harvard does not help certain people.
As some people say: This is my country! I want it back!
