Who Can Fix Our Internet?

You know we're not done complaining about the internet — we've definitely got some quality issues here in Southern Nevada, especially for the price. Yesterday, we talked about how two companies, Cox and CenturyLink, got their stranglehold on the Las Vegas broadband market, and why treating the internet like a publicly-owned utility might be the answer — even though municipal internet is actually illegal in Nevada. Today, we get another take: Dayvid sits down with Brian Mitchell, Director of the NV Office of Science, Innovation & Technology. Brian oversees High Speed Nevada, a new initiative that just got $55 million in federal funding. Brian talks about his solutions for better broadband in Nevada, but also says that municipal networks might not be the panacea they're touted as. Join the broadband conversation: OSIT wants your input! You can complete this form to join the process as a community partner. You can also take a speed test here to help OSIT see how fast internet speeds are in different parts of the state. And you can also submit a challenge to the FCC's map of speeds at your address here.

Why Does Our Internet Suck?

Look, it's no secret that the internet options in Las Vegas aren't great. We pay more than the rest of the country for slower speeds, and it's worse if you're in lower-income and less white parts of town. But why?? How did we get here? Today, Dayvid talks with Sean Gonsalves, senior reporter, editor and researcher at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, who explains how Cox and CenturyLink established control here (hint: there's a state law involved) and why treating the internet like a locally-owned utility could make all the difference. Don't miss out on tomorrow's episode, too: We're talking with a Nevada state official about the big federal money headed our way for broadband investment — and why he doesn't necessarily think that locally-owned municipal broadband is the answer.

After working in a variety of industries–including launching two start-ups–David Richman entered the financial industry as an advisor. Several years in, he found that his interests were more in managing people and businesses than in managing money. Over the next 15 years, he managed ever-larger businesses for the same Wall Street firm. Among other pursuits, David now works with a nationally-recognized financial services firm committed to keeping the advisor in the forefront. Over the last 10 years, David has completed over 50 triathlons, including 15 Ironman-distance triathlons (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run), more than 50 runs longer than marathon distance, including several 24-hour runs, running 85 miles in Mexico in the heat of the summer, running 104 miles straight from Santa Barbara to Manhattan Beach, and most recently biking 4,700-miles in just six weeks as he met with the participants of his upcoming book exploring the emotional side of cancer. As a former sedentary, over-weight, smoker, David knew that he needed to focus not on what others wanted out of him, but on what he wanted out of life. Through lessons learned in business and sport, David introduces the concept of the “middle of the pack” and discusses how to get more out of ourselves than ever imagined. He applies this concept to life and business and adds value to the people he works with coming from the perspective of the “middle of the pack.” David was born in Miami and raised mostly in the Los Angeles area. He and his wife split their time between homes in Southern California and Southern Nevada. He has worked in real estate, lending, construction, started both an animation company and a skin care company, and then went into financial services. He has college-aged twins who are as aspirational as their father. After losing his sister to brain cancer, David has organized a yearly fundraiser in her memory, the most recent being the impetus for his upcoming book, Cycle of Lives – 15 People's Stories, 5,000 Miles, and a Journey Through the Emotional Chaos of Cancer. https://david-richman.com/

Since 2019, the Nevada Donor Network Foundation has been on a mission to bring a new transplant institute to Nevada. And due to a recent investment of American Rescue Plan Act funds, the nonprofit has gotten closer to bringing the institute to life. But why a new transplant institute? Especially since there is already a center for transplantation at University Medical Center. To answer that is Joe Ferreira, the CEO and president of the Nevada Donor Network.

The removal of cannabis from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act is a proposed legal and administrative change in cannabis law at the federal level that can be undertaken by Congress, The Executive Branch or The United States Attorney General and has been proposed repeatedly since 1972. Schedule I is the most tightly restricted category reserved for drugs that have "no currently accepted medical use”. The scheduling of cannabis is also an issue that needs to be addressed at the state level and often conflicts with cannabis legalization laws, allowing for cannabis possession arrests to continue to occur even in those states where it has been legalized. On this episode of Let's Be Blunt, Montel speaks wtih the Executive Director of the NV ACLU, Athar Haseebullah. Athar is graduate of Howard University and Howard University School of Law. He spent several years as a litigator for both Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada and the City of New York. Support the showFor More Let's be BLUNT with MontelInstagram https://www.instagram.com/letsbebluntmontel/orYouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMGyFAMo_k-0Q7Ui9DXCCmQ
