Net Neutrality Is The Fight We Have To Win

By Sam Greenwod

November 28, 2017

What is net neutrality?

Net neutrality is essentially fairness and equality on the internet and that all internet data is the same. This is important because it would effect your money, your rights, other guidelines, and the world overall because the US has a massive influence over the rest of the world.

Why is it important?

It’s important because losing net neutrality would cause the cost of internet access to go up and it would also allow telecom companies to make internet “fast lanes” and zero-rating practices. This could also cause changes in other parts of the world especially in Europe where rules are a lot stricter and they already have a couple of rules that borderline break net neutrality, it essentially means that if you ask for something about you to be removed from the internet it has to be.

What’s going to change when these rules are adopted?

Nothing, that’s the issue everything previously described is going to become legal could possibly become legal (even though companies still kind of still try to do it with loopholes in the law) on December 14th..

What else will happen with the rule changes?

As part of the rule changes broadband will be removed from title 2 which means that it won’t be considered a utility. This means that poor people won’t get subsidies from the government for internet access.

Super Mario Odyssey Review

Disclosure

I’ve not completely finished the came but I’m far enough to hav an opinion on the game I’ve just not beaten th final boss and finished the postgame.

Super Mario Odyssey is the newest gsme in the series of Super Mario RPGs. This is the first of its kind a almost fully open world Mario game. Almost meaning there is still the there is still the world mechanic, but the worlds are just called kingdoms. In the game you are collecting moons similar to stars in Mario 64.

 

Gameplay

The Gameplay is great. The game doesn’t lag at all and runs really fast. I love the moon format it’s really great, you sometimes canskip the kingdom bosses. You can play in handheld mode without lag. I reccogmend using the JoyCons to play because certin cappy actions recuire motion controls that only are possible with the JoyCons. Oh right I almost forgot that there are about 500 postgame moons.

Storyline

 

The story is good basicallly Bowser wants to marry Peach and you as Mario is trying to prevent the wedding in this game Bowser is not working with the kupas but brutals.
