U.N. takeover of the Internet must be stopped, U.S. warns


SUMMARY OF STORY

Democratic and Republican government officials warned this morning that a United Nations summit in December will lead to a virtual takeover of the Internet if proposals from China, Russia, Iran, and Saudi Arabia are adopted.

It was a rare point of bipartisan agreement during an election year: a proposal that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin described last year as handing the U.N. "international control of the Internet" must be stopped.

I'm sorry if I have not been quite up to-date on my weather reporting the last few days. Some of you may know that I was in the hospital again from May 3rd to May 7th and have been finding out since that I seem to have a lot more health issues than I realized. This has made it very hard to keep up with my weather blog and photos. I've tried to set things up so you can still get the current weather related to the South Metro Twin Cities by clicking on the links provided. If you are a regular reader of my blog and would like something added that I've not thought of, please post a comment or send me a Wundermail message and I will try to add it into the blog. Please forgive me if I am not quick to respond. Thank you.

Note: This is a PBS (Public Broadcasting System) program available through our local Twin Cities PBS station TPT-2 over the internet. This program is 53 minutes in length and requires a broadband connection of at least 1.5 to 2.0 megabits per second to watch. The link will take you directly to the TPT-2 website so it doesn't use any of Weather Underground's bandwidth. The video works pretty much like a YouTube video.

I highly recommend this program as it shows the problems involved with forecasting tornadoes and the latest research being done towards giving more advance time warnings to help protect the public from these monsters.

If you missed it earlier, you can see it online. The video is about 60 minutes long and requires a fast broadband connection to view it. The video player is just like YouTube.

NOVA 'Secrets of the Sun'

A new spacecraft and telescopes on Earth allow scientists to see and study the sun as they never have before, and the work they do is intended to help mankind predict and track the star's potentially dangerous solar storms.
