If you read the asterisked footnote for the leftmost bar, it says that the 4 mbps up / 1 mbps down data is actually for 3 mbps up / 768 kbps down since those are the closest speeds that the FCC has data for. You'll also note that the words up and down are reversed...although that's probably a typo that propagated through cut and paste.
Their data for ISP speeds are the maximums for your entire zip-code. If anyone can get 100 mbps from Comcast or 3 mbps from Verizon, they'll call Comcast 100 mbps-1 gbps+ and Verizon 3-6 mbps. That's a major part of why the numbers are so bad.
For example, my zip-code for example includes a large amount of farmland, a small city and some suburban apartments and houses in between. In the city there are a number of local wireless ISP's with reasonable speeds and rates but they don't provide reliable service to those of us in the less urban areas. Even so, they still show up as available on the map. On top of that, the DSLAM for the local DSL provider is in the city so the map shows 3-6 mbps for them even though they struggle to provide 1.5-3 mbps where I am a couple miles away.
At my address the national broadband map is actually rather accurate. At least where wired providers are concerned. It shows Charter (even though it only shows their highest tier) and Frontier. Charter provides a maximum of 100 mbps down for my address. Frontier sells a 6 mbps connection that, they confirmed, at my address would probably be somewhere between 1.5 and 3 mbps maximum. I don't live in an extremely rural area. I'm about 5 minutes outside of a city of just under 100,000. Where I live though, I have one choice if I'm going to be using Netflix (or cloud backups of my computer). That's a problem for me.
Bing and Yahoo are receiving and complying with these requests as well. The difference is that they aren't telling the sites in question that search results linking to their websites are being removed so, you don't hear much about them.
I came into the comments section to say this. I have three old systems here with no personal information on them (two don't even have OS'es installed right now) and I'd gladly join in this 'study'. Hell, I may even fire up the VM that I use to test shady executables and run it on my main machine.
The problem there is called 'regulatory capture'. The majority of the people interested and qualified for the regulatory jobs are people who either worked in the industry before or people who the industry would, even without the government job on their resumé, be interested in hiring. After an agency has existed for a few years, many of its members will be former members of the regulated industry.
It's a problem but, unless the government tries to prohibit individuals from taking certain jobs after their government service is complete (which would be of questionable legality), I don't know how to fix the issue.
Until one of those 'brown people' visits the United States after being infected and causes an epidemic amongst people who either have never been vaccinated or among that unfortunate minority who has their immunity fail after vaccination.

The reason that he was able plead to lesser charges may have been, assuming your summary identifying the girl as being 16 years old is accurate, the fact that, in the state of Kansas, he wasn't committing statutory rape or, as you said, 'diddling a child '. According to Kansas state law, the age of consent is 16.
It doesn't make me feel good making this correction but, I feel wrong when I know something is incorrect and I don't say anything.
The problem there is the fact that the telecoms provide a service that the government has never provided (as far as I know), the telecoms aren't wholly dependent on that particular revenue stream for their core business, and this is only Texas state law not US federal law. I don't know if a similar provision exists at the federal level.
They should probably include a distribution license with the album purchase. Even if I had that kind of disposable income, I don't think I'd purchase an album that expensive without the right to legally redistribute it. I'd be too tempted to share and with the only copy of the album, it'd be far too easy to track it to me.
You will note that both of the recreational-use legalizations were by way of voter referendum and not legislative action. It's somewhat harder to convince 50% + 1 out of millions of citizens of a particular point of view rather than the same proportion of a few dozen legislators.
After doing a bit of reading, I've discovered that the school district wasn't even required, by state or federal law, to report a look-a-like weapon to the authorities. Well, I'm going to be in Flint later today anyway I guess I can go complain in person.
Hurray...this is a topic I can speak on with authority. Since I graduated from that school district in 2003 *sigh*. I know that even when I was a student you could be suspended for 10-180 days for possession of a 'look-a-like' weapon on school grounds. So that rule's been around for a while. However, while I know students that were arrested for possession of real weapons in school, I definitely hadn't heard of anyone (until now) being arrested for possession of toy guns. In fact, while I was in high school, on the seniors last day of school they would regularly go around doing drive by's on the underclassmen with water guns in the parking lot. They were still doing that when my youngest sibling graduated high school 5 years ago so I really don't know what's changed in such a short time. I these kids get charged with anything real I may not be able to support Prosecutor Layton in the next election. That would be too bad since he hasn't been a bad prosecutor otherwise.
