New data from A4AI looks at the price of 1GB of mobile data across 60 countries – World Wide Web Foundation
This is the latest data pricing research from the Alliance for Affordable Internet. To see the data in full, visit a4ai.org.
Survey after survey shows that the high cost of accessing and using the internet remains one of the major factors keeping billions offline. As the Web Foundation, through our Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), works to develop and implement the policies needed to reduce prices and enable those offline to afford to connect, current data on the level of broadband affordability across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is critical to tracking progress and impact.  
Based on A4AI’s understanding of affordability, where a 1GB mobile prepaid broadband plan is priced at 2% or less of average monthly income — a definition adopted earlier this year by the UN Broadband Commission — we assessed the price of 1GB of mobile prepaid data in 60 LMICs. What does this newest data show?

The Aim of Attention
rdinarily minds are like flags in the wind, fluttering this way and that, depending on which way the wind blows. Even if we don’t want to feel angry, jealous, lonely, or depressed, we’re carried away by such feelings and by the thoughts and physical sensations that accompany them. We’re not free; we can’t see other options, other possibilities.

The goal of attention, or shamatha, practice is to become aware of awareness. Awareness is the basis, or what you might call the “support,” of the mind. It is steady and unchanging, like the pole to which the flag of ordinary consciousness is attached. When we recognize and become grounded in awareness of awareness, the “wind” of emotion may still blow. But instead of being carried away by the wind, we turn our attention inward, watching the shifts and changes with the intention of becoming familiar with that aspect of consciousness that recognizes Oh, this is what I’m feeling, this is what I’m thinking. As we do so, a bit of space opens up within us. With practice, that space—which is the mind’s natural clarity—begins to expand and settle. We can begin to watch our thoughts and emotions without necessarily being affected by them quite as powerfully or vividly as we’re used to.

In 2012, politicians in North Carolina banned officials and developers from using climate science to plan for sea level rises. Now, the state faces a mega storm, and possibly a mega disaster. https://t.co/EmSiZbOgOa

Apple confirms Twitter live stream of tomorrow’s iPhone event | iLounge News
Apple has confirmed that it will be live streaming tomorrow’s iPhone launch event on Twitter, following speculation that was fuelled by a promoted Tweet that has been making the rounds. While Apple has announced its events via Twitter in the past, this is the first year the company has outright suggested a live stream on the social media service, with the Tweet noting users can “watch the #AppleEvent live on Twitter.” Apple has confirmed both to MacRumors and TechCrunch that this does indeed mean that the entire keynote will be live streamed on Twitter, in addition to Apple’s usual live streams available via its tvOS Apple Events app and Special Events page. The keynote is scheduled to begin tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time in the new Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California.
