Canada’s “big three” worried about Verizon – report

first_imgHome Canada’s “big three” worried about Verizon – report AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 30 JUL 2013 Senior executives from Canada’s big three mobile operators – BCE, Rogers and Telus – have held private talks with the government to discuss the market-entry threat posed by US firms, such as Verizon, according to a report from Bloomberg.Canadian industry minister James Moore, according to Bloomberg sources, had asked to get the views of the country’s major mobile network operators in person.BCE, in a 25 July statement, said the government’s decision to block Canada’s largest players from buying smaller domestic competitors – which prompted share price falls for the big three – would allow Verizon to acquire those businesses at “cut-rate prices”.There are also worries that players such as Verizon might unfairly benefit from a government decision to reserve airwaves for new entrants, as well as rules that force incumbents to oper their networks for use by competitors.Verizon has been circling smaller players in Canada’s mobile market for some time, encouraged by a change in regulation. Last year, to bolster its attempt to create a viable fourth nationwide operator, Canada’s government ruled that telecom carriers could have full foreign ownership if they had less than a 10 per cent market share.According to figures from GSMA Intelligence, Rogers, BCE and Telus – combined – hold around 88 per cent of Canada’s mobile market.

Atlantans Protest Pending Repeal Of Net Neutrality

first_img Share Atlanta-area internet activists are planning a series of protests ahead of a vote expected this week that would repeal net neutrality.Like us on FacebookNet NeutralityTo understand net neutrality, the internet can be likened to a highway. All cars are welcome and must abide by the same speed limit. But if there’s an express lane, you can pay a toll to get to your destination faster.The Federal Communications Commission is expected to repeal net neutrality Thursday. It would potentially allow companies — for example, like Hulu — to pay internet providers a little extra, like a toll, so their website and videos download faster than their competitors.Peter Swire is a professor of law and ethics at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business and an associate director of the Institute for Information Security and Privacy.“Under net neutrality, all the different websites get downloaded to consumers the same way. If you take away net neutrality, it gives the internet service providers a chance to decide what they’re going to let through and what they’re not going to let through, so there’s a possibility of censorship,” Swire said. “It’s hard to see why that’s in the business interest of the internet providers, but it’s a concern people express.”Many believe that, with the repeal of net neutrality, internet providers could decide to block websites or make some of them so slow they would be difficult to access. Atlanta-area internet activists protested the planned repeal Thursday. (Ian Palmer/WABE) Related Stories Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility For Whom The Bell Rings 2:12 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List Internal OppositionTwo of the five FCC commissioners said they will vote against Chairman Ajit Pai and the majority to keep net neutrality.One of them, Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, held a town hall meeting in Atlanta on net neutrality earlier this year.“As I traveled through Atlanta and go off of the highways, there are too many places where people have suffered because there is chronic redlining that goes on in certain communities. The FCC could be a conduit or a backstop to ensure that does not happen as much,” Clyburn said. “But if we have a hands-off approach, then those communities do not have the infrastructure, where the investment is not naturally flowing, particularly in some of the more rural areas of Georgia, then it’s going to be problematic.”Equal Access Clyburn said she wants more regulation to ensure equal access. She said she’s not convinced repealing net neutrality would incentivize companies to expand broadband access to rural areas.“Part of the idea of being regulated as monopoly utility companies is that internet providers are required to serve the entire area where they are,” said Gruendler of East Atlanta. “If this passes, the sky’s the limit. Maybe even that will change. Maybe Comcast and AT&T will no longer have to offer affordable internet service to southwest Atlanta. Maybe they’ll no longer have to build out the fiber to make it so you can get the same internet whether you’re in Buckhead or on the poor side of town. And heaven help you if you’re rural, you’re just screwed.”Long-Term InvestmentsBut Mercer University business professor Antonio Saravia said he supports the FCC’s move.He said companies can make more money and investments without the net neutrality rule.“While it may hurt small businesses or families the next year or so, in the long run, it may be better for the industries in place,” Saravia said. “In these highly technological industries, typically these regulations do not keep up with the technological developments. With less regulation, industries tend to thrive, and we, in the long run, see more products, more diversity, better prices.”Georgia Tech professor Swire said whether investments will be made, in rural areas for example, is a point of contention.“For the past 20 years, the internet service providers have said they’ll make more investments if they’re more profitable, and critics have claimed that the internet service providers take the profits and don’t put in the new investments,” Swire said. Greater ProfitsSwire said repealing net neutrality would allow internet providers to charge companies different rates and find a more profitable business model.“The internet providers have become worried that they’re just going to be boring commodity service providers, they’re just going to connect the pipe from the network to people’s homes and that won’t lead to particularly high profits. So they’ve been looking for new ways to make money,” Swire said. “None of the internet service providers are close to bankruptcy. They see big internet companies, like Google and Facebook, taking most of the advertising and revenue from online activities, and they’d like to be able to compete more effectively.”Atlantans ProtestAbout 70 internet activists gathered Thursday along Peachtree Road in front of a Verizon store to protest the repeal of net neutrality. Jack Gruendler of East Atlanta was among the protesters.“It’s not just they’re going to make you pay more,” Gruendler said. “The FCC wants to allow internet providers to literally censor the internet, stifle messages they don’t like and basically destroy free speech on the internet. It’s the most important issue going on today.”Gruendler said internet providers could decide to block websites or make some of them so slow they would be nearly impossible to access.The big internet providers like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T said they’re not looking to censor or slow down content, but protesters have said they don’t trust the internet providers to keep their promises. Google Fiber said it had no comment.The FCC said with the repeal, internet providers “will be required to disclose blocking, throttling, affiliated prioritization, paid prioritization, congestion management practices, application-specific behavior and device attachment rules, if any.”A couple of Atlanta-area internet activists Thursday held a sign appealing to U.S. Sen. David Perdue of Georgia to help stop the repeal of net neutrality. (Ian Palmer/WABE) ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Partylast_img read more

Former First Response (AL) Paramedic Sentenced after Admitting He Stole Fentanyl

first_img“You cannot save anyone,” she said. “You cannot make anyone get help, as hard as you try. They have to want to save themselves.” Visit The Decatur Daily (Decatur, Ala.) at www.decaturdaily.com Soon after he was hired, Greenhaw was arrested in Marshall County and charged with harassing communications and violation of a protection-from-abuse order. In January 2016, he pleaded guilty to making harassing communications on social media and was sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation. (c)2021 The Decatur Daily (Decatur, Ala.) He also faces second-degree theft charges in Morgan County Circuit Court after being indicted for stealing both fentanyl and ketamine, also a pain reliever, from Healthcare Investment Group Inc., the parent company of First Response. The trial in that case is set for Sept. 13. “Greenhaw stated that after he tampered with and personally used all of the 129 vials of fentanyl citrate, he switched to trying ketamine,” also kept at the First Response office, according to the plea agreement. Once outside, according to the investigative report, “Greenhaw confessed to stealing the fentanyl and ketamine” and agreed to provide a written statement. “I was in addiction,” he said. “The things they say happened did happen. I was taking the fentanyl and replacing it with normal saline. It’s something I’m ashamed of, something that I thoroughly regret doing.” In August 2018, Greenhaw said, a newly hired First Response paramedic attempted to administer fentanyl to a patient and the vial’s cap fell off. The newly hired paramedic then grabbed a second vial from the ambulance and administered it. “It’s been hard on my family life,” Greenhaw said Wednesday. “I did put us in financial ruins. The guilt, the shame that’s associated with what I’ve done to my family — no one wants to see their family member reported on in the news. It has been very hard on my family and very hard on myself. Through Christ, through my faith, I made a turnaround for the better. Decatur police first found out about Greenhaw’s use of the fentanyl when it was reported to them by a First Response paramedic who no longer works for the ambulance service but was then working a night shift with Greenhaw. At about 3 a.m. Aug. 22, Greenhaw mentioned “he had to glue some lids on,” which the other paramedic in a written statement said he did not understand. Amber Greenhaw on Wednesday said spouses of addicts have to protect themselves and their children and recognize that the effort to come clean must come from the addict himself. (MCT) In another petition for a protective order, filed three months before Greenhaw started at First Response, his wife alleged he held her down on a couch while strangling her. Eric Fleischauer He said he completed a 90-day drug abuse rehabilitation program after his arrest, has been routinely monitored for drugs both in voluntary and court-ordered programs, and has been clean since his arrest. He said since his arrest he has volunteered at 12-step addiction programs and was certified through the Alabama Department of Public Health as a peer support recovery specialist. She said she has watched her husband’s journey from addiction and is thankful for it. The federal case was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Alabama. A former First Response ambulance paramedic who was sentenced this week to 51 months in prison after admitting he removed fentanyl from vials and replaced the drug with saline said Wednesday he has been clean since his arrest and now works for a drug rehabilitation program. Greenhaw attempted to glue the caps back on the vials, but the fact that they had been tampered with was obvious to paramedics who looked at them after Greenhaw’s arrest. Decatur police Investigator Will Halbrooks “observed that the metal seal had been broken that secures the plastic top to the vial” while executing a search warrant at First Response, and multiple First Response paramedics told him that meant they had been tampered with. On Wednesday, he said he pleaded guilty to the harassment charge to avoid the cost of fighting it, and he and his wife later discovered someone else initiated the online harassment. Greenhaw was arrested in Arab and did not initially confess after being transported to the Decatur Police Department. He then called for a detective to return to the interview room, according to the investigatory report, and “asked if he could step outside and have some chewing tobacco. Detective (Matt) Young escorted Greenhaw outside the police department and provided Greenhaw with some chewing tobacco.” First Response was and is the sole ambulance provider in Decatur. It was not clear from court documents how many of its transported patients received saline when paramedics thought they were administering fentanyl, a powerful narcotic, but one such incident was referenced in the plea agreement signed by Greenhaw. Michael Walter Greenhaw, 43, was a supervisory paramedic when the crimes were committed in 2018 and one of three supervisors with access to the narcotics vault at First Response’s Central Parkway Southwest office. He pleaded guilty to one federal count of tampering with a consumer product in October 2019. He was arrested at Arab City Park, where he was in his truck at his son’s football practice, according to the investigative report. Police said they found a vial of ketamine and a syringe while patting him down. They also found one empty fentanyl vial in his house and six in his truck, according to the report. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. “For the past three months I have been stealing fentanyl from First Response Ambulance Service to deal with my pain,” Greenhaw wrote, referring to a back injury. “I would go straight to the vault and take the fentanyl out of the the vial and put it in my arm. I would then refill the vial using a clean needle with normal saline. The tops on the vials are not reusable so I would use regular super glue to put the tops back on the vials.” David Childers, now owner of First Response’s parent company and in 2018 president of First Response, did not return calls Wednesday. — Confession Between April 2018 and Aug. 23, 2018, the date of his arrest, Greenhaw said he tampered with 129 vials of fentanyl. “You have to put your pride, put your ego up and realize you do have a problem and it’s much easier to admit your problem before you hit bottom — before you make some career- or life-altering mistakes that put other people in jeopardy and hurt the lives of those around you,” he said. “It’s much easier to put your pride on the shelf and seek help for your problems.” “Greenhaw put vulnerable patients in grave danger by replacing fentanyl citrate with saline in vials that he knew were intended to be administered to critically ill or injured patients,” U.S. Attorney Prim Escalona said in a statement Wednesday. Both petitions for protection-from-abuse orders were granted temporarily but ultimately dismissed, one at the request of his wife and one because she did not appear at the court hearing. — Recovery U.S. District Court Judge David Proctor ruled that the sentence on the federal conviction will run concurrently with any sentence in state court, and that Greenhaw will remain out on bond until a date is arranged for him to report to prison. — Shame “Later I caught up with him gluing lids on in the training room where there are no cameras, so I asked him what was up,” the paramedic wrote. “He told me that he was putting saline back in the fentanyl bottles. He then said there are 124 bottles and I need to glue the lids back on. I asked him how many were in stock, and he said 124. I asked him how many had saline, and he said 124. … ___ Michael Greenhaw said the path to recovery for an addict is tough, but doable. “I cleaned my life up to be able to give back to the community and now I volunteer every chance I get. I actually work at a local, well-known drug treatment center,” he said. The start date of Michael Greenhaw’s prison time has been delayed due to COVID-19 concerns, but he expects it to begin later this year. — [email protected] or 256-340-2435. Twitter @DD_Fleischauer. “Yes I’ve been sentenced to 51 months in the federal penitentiary, but I will continue to live my life with God’s will and continue to help other people who are in addiction to find a better way of life.” “To say that ‘this is the man I married’ is not even a true statement. The man I’m married to now is someone that I have the utmost respect for,” she said, sobbing. “I’m proud to be his wife, and he is an amazing father and amazing husband and I could not be more proud of what he’s done.” The Decatur Daily, Ala. Greenhaw, who is out on bond as he awaits the start of his prison term, on Wednesday told The Decatur Daily he regrets his crime. The other paramedic told investigators he thought Greenhaw was using the fentanyl, not selling it, because he had “major track marks on his arms.” Police also made note of the track marks when they arrested Greenhaw. Amber Greenhaw on Wednesday referred to it as a “mutual physical argument.” Greenhaw was hired at First Response as an emergency medical technician in November 2015 and became a licensed paramedic in 2017. Asked by an investigator whether the second vial also contained saline, “Greenhaw stated the chances were ‘high’ because he tampered with the entire supply of fentanyl citrate. Greenhaw further stated he knowingly handed out tampered vials of fentanyl to other paramedics at First Response Ambulance Service,” according to a narrative account in the plea agreement.
