Net Neutrality Is Dead. Here's How to Get It Back
Craig Aaron, January 14, 2014

This piece originally appeared in the Huffington Post.

Three judges in D.C. just killed Net Neutrality.

This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn't have to be.

The big news: A federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down the Federal Communications Commission's Open Internet Order. This decision means that companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon — which brought the lawsuit — are now free to block or slow down any website, application or service they like.

San Rafael PD K9 Fundraiser

The Community Media Center of Marin partnered with the San Rafael Police Department's K9 Association to create the following short promo for their fundraiser event on September 28th at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center. You can catch the promo here:

The San Rafael Police Department had a very successful K9 program for over 20 years, but was eliminated in 2003 due to budget constraints. The men and women of SRPD have formed the K9 Association in an effort to rebuild the program solely through fundraising. Contributions from the community and the San Rafael Police K9 Association funded the purchase of two German Shepherds – Ares and Faro. All proceeds from this event will go to the care, training and maintenance of the K9s. The tickets and donations for this event are tax deductable.
