Net neutrality concerns all of us. Actor friend Carl Bressler just gave me the scoop on Facebook on how to petition the FCC to keep the net neutral.
Here’s how to do it, courtesy of Carl:
1. On your computer, not your phone! – go to: www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express
2. Enter under Proceeding the numbers 17-108.
3. In comments, say you support Title 2 oversight of ISPs. Also say that you support net neutrality.
*Fill in the form carefully; they’ve made it less friendly and impossible to fill in by phone, on purpose.
Here was what I wrote to the FCC:
I support Title 2 oversight of ISPs. I support net neutrality. Like the printing press of the 1400s, the internet fundamentally democratized the way we communicate, make it easier for everyone to have a voice–not just leaders or the wealthy. Any attempt to de-neutralize the internet is deeply damaging to our freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom of assembly and no “free market” consideration should ever infringe on our freedoms of speech, press and assembly.
So many of us actors and other creatives are now really in the business of content creation, just as much as we are in the entertainment biz or the movie biz. The neutral net has created immense opportunities for us to showcase our talents and a net that is not neutral will limit what audiences we can reach. It is important for every creative to fight for net neutrality.
Please do this today!
1 out of 6 children in the U.S. do not have enough to eat. In this season of abundance and goodwill, it is so important to raise awareness to support these children. Please join the Thunderclap campaign for No Kid Hungry to support #GivingTuesday.
If you’re dieting right now, you might be dreading the next few months. As soon as the pumpkin spice lattes start getting poured, it seems like the season of packing on the pounds begins. The word “festive” alludes to feast, and it’s a time of year that people with weight concerns experience a lot of added pressure.
I recently spoke with Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin about being body-positive, no matter what size we are.
