Comment Re:The biggest problem (Score 1) 422

You've only noticed half of the problem. The left in the US believe that we shouldn't spend money on going to space while the poor are still "hungry". Even when food is so cheap that claims about hunger are moronic and obesity is one of the chief health concerns among the very poor.

Much like the religious right, the far left in the US is undaunted by reality, and the result is that politicians in both parties pander to people who don't care about scientific progress just to get nominated.

Canada's Internet Among Best, Report Says 186

silentbrad writes "Canadians enjoy among the fastest, most widely available and least expensive broadband Internet in the developed world, says a report released Thursday. The report, based on the results of 52 million speed tests of broadband users across the G7 countries and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) membership, was produced by Montreal-based consulting firm Lemay Yates Associates Inc. on behalf of Rogers Communications Inc., the country's largest broadband service provider. It disputes the OECD's own report, published in July, that ranked Canada's high-speed Internet offerings significantly below those of other countries. The report comes days after the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission revealed a sharp jump in the number of complaints it has received regarding Internet traffic-management practices, or 'throttling' in recent months." And it's about to get a little better — reader ForgedArtificer points out that Rogers has promised to end all throttling over their network by the end of the year.
