- Internet activists plan net neutrality protest
By Isha Salian - Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
Companies, organizations and individuals are participating in a “day of action” Wednesday to urge the Federal Communications Commission and Congress to preserve regulations adopted in 2015 to limit Internet service providers’ ability to favor certain websites or apps. Currently, the FCC can require Internet service providers like Comcast, AT&T and Verizon to treat all Web traffic flowing over their networks equally. In an April speech, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called for a return to treating the Internet as an information service, not a public utility, a distinction that would limit the FCC’s ability to regulate it. Some in favor of the FCC’s move argue that the Federal Trade Commission should have the authority to regulate Internet service providers, not the FCC. Other net neutrality opponents believe the FCC should only extend its authority over Internet service providers if a serious problem emerges, which they argue has not yet happened. The current policy is “just unwise and really unjustified, and especially because the commission didn’t make a finding of a market failure before it imposed this more stringent form of regulation,” said Randolph May, president of the Free State Foundation, a nonprofit think tank. Regulation is a topic that’s difficult to get consumers interested in,” said Sonic CEO Dane Jasper, “but people really like the Internet.
- Minneapolis chief resigns after shooting of Australian woman
By AMY FORLITI and STEVE KARNOWSKI, Associated Press - Saturday Jul 22, 2017
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police Chief Janee Harteau says she is "willing to step aside to let a fresh set of leadership eyes" be in charge of the department, which has been criticized in the wake of last weekend's fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911.The chief, who once successfully filed a discrimination and sexual harassment complaint against the police force along with her partner, said she must "put the communities we serve first" despite the department's accomplishments under her leadership.Harteau, who started as a beat cop in 1987 at age 22 and was appointed chief in 2012, had become a political liability for Hodges, who faces several challengers in a tough re-election fight.The black man's death, amid heightened tensions around the U.S., sparked protests citywide that included an 18-day occupation outside the police station on the city's north side.Harteau, who said she was backpacking in an area with limited cellphone reception, told reporters Thursday that it would have been "challenging" to return but that she had kept in touch with her command staff.The Minnesota Department of Human Rights upheld their discrimination and sexual harassment complaint, which led to discipline against some officers and changes in training.[...] in June, organizers asked law enforcement to minimize their participation due to tensions over a suburban Minneapolis police officer's recent acquittal in last summer's fatal shooting of black motorist Philando Castile.
- Pennsylvania insurer’s collapse could hit Californians in wallet
By Chad Terhune - Friday Aug 11, 2017
Among all the reasons for rising health insurance premiums, this one might be the most obscure: A long-term care insurer in Pennsylvania just went belly-up.[...] failures are rare, but when they happen, other companies are responsible to help pay claims and protect policyholders through groups known as state guarantee associations.In these situations, long-term care coverage is treated as health insurance, so health insurers are liable for the payments — and some are disputing that.Industry analysts estimate that Penn Treaty has long-term claims liabilities approaching $4 billion, but only about $700 million in assets.Health insurers can pass along those costs by imposing premium surcharges, or they can shift the burden to taxpayers by paying less in state premium taxes.Anthem, the nation’s second-largest health insurer, estimates it will pay $253.8 million to cover its portion of claims.Most state guarantee associations will provide up to $300,000 for each policyholder who files a claim, but the limits vary by state.In California, more than 130,000 people who bought long-term care policies from the state workers’ retirement system received 85 percent rate hikes in recent years.Virtually all of the health insurance companies, especially the big ones, have never sold long-term care insurance,” Belth said, “so they are not appreciative of being assessed.
