CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

collegehumor:

image

I’m Adam.

-And I’m Emily.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

-But soon, we might not be able to.

That’s because…

image

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

image

…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.

But…

image

\

…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.

If this happens…

image

…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.

Ten years from now…

image

…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.

Now, you might be thinking…

image

…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?

Unfortunately…

image

…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.

So…

image

…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.

In a few months…

image

…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

I took Ollie out of the mews yesterday for the first time in a couple weeks and he was just as adorable and cuddly as ever! This bird’s personality amazes me.

Why aren’t you wearing a glove?

Because it’s a kestrel. He’s tiny. Gloves are not necessary. I only use the glove with him during training or feeding. 

I wouldn’t really underestimate their footing ability, as much as I love kestrels and know my relationship with the one I work with. Always wear a glove!

I’m not underestimating their footing ability. I know their footing ability. I’ve been footed by a wild kestrel at maximum strength. It was slightly irritating at most. 
With a well-trained bird, the glove really isn’t necessary all the time. The glove is a way to communicate to the bird that you’re training, it’s more comfortable, and it’s good if you want to clip them in. It’s also useful during feeding when they tend to grip harder. But if you have to wear a glove for protection all the time, then you have some behavioral issues to work out. I would occasionally even handle my red-tail without a glove! I didn’t make a habit of it because it was uncomfortable, but she never hurt me. I know people who use garden gloves with golden eagles! Those essentially offer no protection at all, but allows the falconer to better communicate with the bird. Is it always safe? Probably not! But if it can be done with eagles, it can easily be done with kestrels. 
But regardless of all that, the main point is that its a kestrel. A kestrel! Even if he did decide to grip, I really wouldn’t care at all. It wouldn’t hurt. And even if it did hurt, I’d probably still risk it because he’s a sweetheart and has never showed any aggression at all. And even if he had shown some aggression in the past, I still don’t think I’d care, because after getting footed by hawks, there’s not a lot that phases me. 

"Don’t underestimate their footing ability!" omg
