Iran To Shut Down Internet Permanently; ‘Clean’ National Intranet In Pipeline – International Business Times

I’ve had enough of this. While the page may refresh and give you a hard time reading the article, I read enough to comment on

Iran To Shut Down Internet Permanently; ‘Clean’ National Intranet In Pipeline – International Business Times.

and I plan to do so. What makes the government say what we can read and can’t read. They can’t even make sure people have jobs, and people can have basic living condisions, let alone control a national public thing that everyone uses including banking, communicating, and soforth. I’m sending this one off to some people.

Maybe you should’ve contacted the guy and you could talk in private where an agreement can be worked out. You all might want to check this story out, and then register and comment right here on the blog.

Taxi of Tomorrow May Be Here, But Accessibility Is an Issue Today | MetroFocus | THIRTEEN.

I’ve never known taxi’s to be so-called accessible. I can see where this article is going, because people with wheelchairs are left out when it comes to mobility including some buses, unless its public transit, but even then, you can only fit so many wheelchairs in one bus or train. You really have to plan way ahead to take public transit in case the bus you want is full, or can’t accomodate a wheelchair because of capacity. What do you guys think of this one?
