FCC Officially Repeals Obama-Era Net Neutrality Rules

The Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality rules officially went into effect Monday (June 11).

The net neutrality rules enacted by the President Barack Obama administration in 2015, prohibited internet providers from charging more for certain content such as those that require more bandwidth or from giving preferential treatment to certain websites. The rules basically required internet service providers to offer equal access to all web content.

Despite the outcry from the public imploring the F.C.C to leave net neutrality rules in place, the commission went ahead and voted to repeal the rules in December.

With net neutrality officially repealed, consumers and advocates are worried that broadband providers could begin selling the internet in bundles like cable television packages have begun doing; selling sports, MTV/VH1/BET etc bundles. For instance, access to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites could require paying for a premium social media package. Memes with made up monetary figures circled around social media prior to the F.C.C’s vote and was a major part of the uproar from the public. Another concern is that now that paid prioritization is no longer prohibited, the transmission of data could be slowed for those who do not pay a premium while a fast lane could be occupied by big internet and media companies, as well as affluent households. Small business owners are also worried about an unfair playing field with their websites loading more slowly compared to big companies with a bigger budget. The internet has made it much easier for people to go into business for themselves with a fairly small budget but this could change things, as well as for freelancers and those who work remotely; they could face a higher cost of doing their jobs from home.

Citizens, public interests groups, state attorneys, and Democratic lawmakers pushed to overturn the decision, arguing that a repeal would allow service providers to censor content online or charge additional fees. Several states have taken steps to overrule the F.C.C’s repeal on a local level. In March, Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington signed a law that effectively replaced the federal rules. The Governors of Montana and New York used executive orders to force net neutrality. Also, as of late May, 29 state legislatures introduced bills meant to ensure net neutrality, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Some of these measures, however, have failed, some are still pending, and some states have not taken any action at all.

The F.C.C, however, has made arguments for repealing the rules. They voted for the repeal because the rules restrained broadband providers like Verizon and Comcast from experimenting with new business models and investing in new technology. The chairman, Ajit Pai, has long argued that the rules were just put into effect in 2015 and service providers had not engaged in any of the feared practices before net neutrality was put into place.

Several internet providers have made public pledges that they will not block sites and slow down the transmission of data once the rules were repealed. They argued that Title II gave the F.C.C. too much power over their business and the regulations made it hard to expand their networks.

Democratic lawmakers are still fighting to reinstate net neutrality. Barbara Underwood, New York’s attorney general, noted that lawsuits opposing the repeal were still pending.

IHOB, Fomerly IHOP, Announces the “B” Stands for Burgers

After six decades in the breakfast business with their staple pancakes, IHOP is no more. The iconic food chain is no longer the International House of Pancakes as they announced they are now flipping their name to IHOb.

The major change comes as the company prepares to mark the 60th anniversary of its first restaurant, which opened outside Los Angeles in the summer of 1958.

They announced the name change to IHOb about a week ago and had fans guessing what the “b” stood for. People responded with breakfast, biscuits, brunch, even burritos. Today the company announced that the “b” stands for burgers.

They officially changed their Twitter handle to @IHOb and wiped the @IHOP Twitter clean, leaving bio that says: “Hey ya Pancakes. Don’t follow us here. We’re @IHOb now.”

Waffle House, IHOP’s all day/night breakfast competitor has joined in on the fun, throwing shade at the name change. They tweeted “Long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity. – Bruce Lee.” They’ve also been replying to fans who have demanded they don’t make a change like IHOP has, saying they never will.

As for how the change will affect IHOP, now IHOb, we’ll have to wait and see. At its annual stockholders’ meeting last month, IHOP reported that nearly half of its customers come in during breakfast time. Lunch follows (with 28 percent) and then dinner (16 percent) and late-night service (7 percent). There are currently over 1600 IHOP locations in the U.S. and in the most recent fiscal year, IHOP stores generated $185 million in revenue, on sales of $3.3 billion, according to NPR.

Stevie J fired from ‘LHHATL’

Many fans of the hit reality show “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” were mildly surprised when Stevie J was not fired the first time he got into a violent altercation with a cast mate, Benzino, and his girlfriend Althea during the reunion taping in New York several years ago.

Stevie J fired from ‘LHHATL’

But it looks like Stevie J may have crossed the line this time when he reportedly shouted vulgarities at, then allegedly got violent with female cast member Erica Mena during the latest season’s reunion show.

Multiple sources confirm that things got over the top between newcomer Erica Mena and longtime star Stevie J. The two mercurial personalities had been beefing back and forth the entire season because Mena believes Stevie is brainwashing her former friend, Estelita. Stevie J thought he and Erica were once “cool” with each other, exacerbating his resentment towards Mena.

According to Bossip and Hollywood Life, Mena got Stevie J’s blood boiling so high with a “low blow” comment that he allegedly resorted to calling her son a homophobic slur and allegedly tried to hit her on set before he could be restrained.

Moreover, according to MediaTakeout.com“Love & Hip Hop” producers fired Stevie J from the show and have subsequently barred him from engaging in any future activities connected with the VH1 series. Reportedly, the episode went so far to the left that security had to pull Stevie away from Erica, then escort him under force from the building. CelebrityInsider.orgon the other hand, says VH1 producers have begun an investigation to decide whether to keep the famously hotheaded Stevie J or terminate him for breach of contract.

Several local New York blogs were on the scene and also reported on the fracas:

 

Erica used Instagram Live to comment on the incident, which was captured by Bossip and multiple other blogs before Mena deleted the post. But she did say that Stevie J “tried to fight her” because she took a “low jab” at him.

“He likes to fight females,” she reportedly said. “If you blogs wanna blog about anything, blog about the fact the Stevie J is a B—H, and he likes to fight girls.”

 

Joseline Hernandez, a former popular cast member of “LHHATL” and ex-girlfriend of Stevie J, now feels vindicated by Stevie J’s actions as she had spoken about his alleged violent behavior for the past several years to no avail:
