Rural Vermonters urged to demonstrate their need for high-speed broadband Internet access

first_imgRidgeviewTel, a full-service broadband communications company, is helping rural Vermont residents map their broadband needs at the Vermont Dairy Festival in Enosburg Falls this weekend, June 5 through 7. In addition to participating in the popular parade, RidgeviewTel will have a tent in the festival’s concessions area equipped with access to http://weneedbroadband.com(link is external), a dial-up friendly site where festival-goers from communities under- or unserved by broadband can map their location in a system that compiles their demand for broadband to attract service and even federal stimulus dollars.”We are activists,” said  Vince Jordan, CEO of RidgeviewTel. “We understand the value of high-speed Internet and believe everyone deserves affordable broadband and the opportunities it provides. That’s why we’re reaching out inVermont and around the country, encouraging rural residents to map their location and rally their neighbors to do the same.”When the federal government starts distributing the $7.2 billion earmarked for rural broadband, it’s essential that the funds go to areas with the most need. Additionally, communities that have already been mapped for service will be decidedly more attractive to telecommunications companies receiving these funds. With the help of communities likeEnosburg Falls and others throughout Vermont, RidgeviewTel is tracking the true demand directly from the source – rural residents with little to no option for broadband Internet – and helping accelerate network deployments. Additionally, RidgeviewTel plans to share the data collected with economic development groups that can also vie for stimulus dollars and help bring broadband to communities that need it most.RidgeviewTel is a full-service broadband communications company based in Longmont, Colorado, that provides affordable, high-speed, wireless Internet services to communities under-served by traditional telecom and cable providers. Founded by President and CEO Vincent Jordan, a telecom industry veteran and entrepreneur, RidgeviewTel provides wireless broadband to 14 communities in New York, 25 in Colorado, and 15 in Illinois.

Aston Villa perpetuate the English reign in the European Cup

first_imgThere are that they assure that he Bayern he won all the European Cup finals he deserved to lose and lost all the ones he deserved to win. The fans of Atlético, Saint Étienne, Leeds, Valencia and Dortmund, their victims in the European Cup, will surely contribute data that confirms this. Legend or not, what is certain that the Bavarians were superior to Aston Villa in that 1982 Rotterdam Final. He could even thrash. But the German strikers ran into a very young Spink, who like Iker Casillas in 2002 in Glasgow against Leverkusen, went out to supply the goal at injured Rimmer and he became the great hero of the party. White took advantage of what was practically Villa’s only chance to score the only goal of the match and give the title to his team.With that victory, the Aston Villa was proclaimed as England fourth team in winning the European Cup after United, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest (No country has so many champions, to which we must also add the Chelsea) and perpetuated the golden age of British football on the continent, in which it was the fifth orejona Consecutive for the English country. The Villa reaffirmed his glory in the European Super Cup, in which he beat Barça, but as a result of that, he faded until he dropped to Segunda in 1987. The ‘villains’ were never so scary. The 80s started in England with the disappearance of a myth, John Lennon, and the resurrection of another, the Aston Villa. Only a year after the Nottingham Forest will earn your second European Cup (1980), the Birmingham ‘villains’ won their seventh and so far last English league 71 years after your previous title in 1910. By then term Old Glory (Vieja Gloria) perfectly coined a club that had won the Most of their leagues in the 19th century. Ten years before winning the English league, the town I played in Third divisionBut his return to the elite was not as surprising as that of Nottingham Forest a few years ago. Little by little, by the technician Ron Saunders, he was building a competitive team that important players like Gordon Cowans, Dennis Mortimer, Tony Morley and above all, Peter White, and after his return to the First in 1975 he was already fighting for European positions. The title definitely came in season 1980-81.The following year, the ‘villains’ advanced with good pace in the European Cup, after eliminating the Valur and Dinamo Berlin when something unexpected happened. Saunders faced the directive and was fired, and his assistant Tony Barton took over. Everything seemed to indicate that without the great leader of the project and in the most decisive phase of the course, the ‘villains’ adventure would end soon. And once again, history showed that in the football everything is possible. In the quarterfinals and semifinals, the English team defeated two greats of the time, the Dinamo Kiev and Anderlecht, and reached the final against a powerful Bayern Munich in which stars of the level of Rummenigge, Breitner and Augenthaler, among others, shone.last_img read more
