It’s been a busy week and we’ve got a lot to talk about on this week’s Graceland with Jennifer Meadows.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress to lay out the threat of a nuclear Iran. No one from the Obama administration showed up and dozens of Democrats had other plans. Nancy Pelosi did attend, but made more faces than a grandparent attending a second-grade cello recital. We’ll discuss the speech and the White House response before, during and after the speech.
The FCC voted to institute new net neutrality regulations. It sure sounds great, right? Nobody really knows what’s in the new regulations because they haven’t told us yet. We can bet that it will most likely lead to less access, higher consumer costs and slower speeds.
Increased federal regulation never produces the opposite result. It could change the internet as we know it. What’s not to love?
Keeping on the topic of the internet, Google wants to rank websites for searches based on “facts.” We will discuss why leaving Google as the arbiter of facts might not lead to the ideal internet experience.
A team of Cornell University researchers is putting an academic touch to future zombie outbreaks. Using disease modeling and statistical physics techniques, they try to examine where some of the best places to survive a zombie outbreak might be. Statistical physics may be a bit over our heads, but we’ve got a few ideas to offer up.
Join Jennifer Meadows and Curtice Mang for a lively and fun hour of discussion on Graceland.
