Creationism; as talked on Michigan State University.
Why SHOULDN'T first world countries get to share the misery of their less fortunate bretheren, anyway?
Well, while the media didn't focus much on the subject there are some religious practices that DO MATTER when it comes to spreading disease. Washing the dead and then drinking that same water is one of them. Natural selection will take care of it though. Pretty much the same deal that happened with cannibalism.

If the dollar bill sinks, US exports soar.
If US exports soar, US economy boosts.
Top US imports are Oil, Machines, Electronics and Vehicles.

The real issue here is cable vs mobile. Apple has been clever enough to force AT&T into a flat-rate program where there is no reward whatsoever for AT&T to speed up its lines.

Google is seeing YouTube growth in the mobile "trend" threatened and wants to speed up things. They will even go to the extent of paying ISP's to do it.
Like fixed phones (who uses them anymore?) in the near future so will mobile net access dominate. The big players will then have established themselves in such a way that there is no way a "youtube"-like startup will be able to compete as it's site will be excruciatingly slow.
This is an establishment-play by Google. A greedy play by the ISP's. A power-need play by the Government. And a suck-it-up-play for the rest of us.

That message to your girlfriend saying, "woooah you can't believe the email I just got" would probably put you 5 years behind the bars. Just to be safe.
