The President can shut down the internet??

I was cruising through Black Planet when this headline caught my attention:

Obama Could Shut Down Internet Under New Emergency Powers

http://newsone.com/nation/technology-nation/newsonestaff5/obama-could-shut-down-internet-under-new-emergency-powers/?omcamp=NEWSBAR

President Obama will be handed the power to shut down the Internet for at least four months without Congressional oversight if the Senate votes for the infamous Internet ‘kill switch’ bill, which was approved by a key Senate committee yesterday and now moves to the floor.

The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, which is being pushed hard by Senator Joe Lieberman, would hand absolute power to the federal government to close down networks, and block incoming Internet traffic from certain countries under a declared national emergency.

Despite the Center for Democracy and Technology and 23 other privacy and technology organizations sending letters to Lieberman and other backers of the bill expressing concerns that the legislation could be used to stifle free speech, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee passed in the bill in advance of a vote on the Senate floor.

Artist Spotlight: Meet Roccett

***

ABOUT ROCCETT:

Success in the music industry is notoriously difficult. Whether it be the obstacle of not having the backing of a major label, or the lack of respect and support from superstar rappers and fans alike, the road to stardom is far from easy. Many people have fallen at the hands of these hardships.

One man who has thrived in these conditions is California rapper Roccett.

His talent and drive caught the attention of Green Up Entertainment in 2004, and his partnership with the company, which has worked with notables like Usher and Tupac, has produced a sizable buzz. Having already worked with established stars like Young Jeezy, Fabolous, Killer Mike, Knoc’turn’al and other rising rappers like Bishop Lamont and Spider Loc at this young stage of his career, as well as having critically acclaimed mixtapes under his belt, Roccett’s talent is clear.

With so many dues paid, his industry knowledge and the groundwork set, Roccett is poised to make a lasting impression on hip-hop.

Roccett , who’s fan base extends nationally and internationally has become a household name and a brand on his own. When you Google Roccett, an artist who’s search returns expand over 281,000 impressions, it is apparent that his underground following is strong and eager to hear more from the talented rapper. Roccett’s current underground fanbase expands from the USA to France, Europe & Switzerland among additional countries.

We Dont Believe You, You Need More People

There is a growing trend amongst e-blast providers to overstate the actual number of subscribers. In the corporate world this would be done to artificially inflate one’s stock price. Online advertisers are hoodwinked with intentionally inflated numbers to purchase ads based on numbers inflated to represent their subscription list.

Do your research and you may quickly discover the factual numbers of subscribers are hosted by companies which makes the number public. For instance, an e-blast provider states his/her subscription at 100,000 but, the host for the newsletter publicly lists it at 30,000. Most people are not aware this information exist and are swindled into believing the numbers presented to them.
