FCC commissioner: Our agency says all Americans are gaining advanced Internet access. It’s wrong (opinion)

Joaquina Erdmann

Last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released the nation’s 2020 Broadband Progress Report. It concludes that broadband is being delivered to all Americans in a reasonable and timely way.

But from where I sit, nothing could be further from the truth. I would know. I am one of the five Commissioners at the FCC, and I refused to offer my support for the 2020 Broadband Progress Report. That’s because, in this crisis, it has become painfully clear that not everyone in the United States has adequate Internet access. The evidence is all around us.

Schools have shuttered and more than 50 million students have been told to head home and many were told to go online for classes. But millions of them can’t get there because they fall into the homework gap and lack internet access at home. It’s not just a problem in rural America. It’s a challenge

Paige raises $5 million more from Goldman Sachs to detect cancer with computer vision

Joaquina Erdmann

Health care startup Paige has raised an additional $5 million to help diagnose cancer using computer vision trained with clinical imaging data. The idea is to use data sets related to treatment and genomics to train the company’s deep learning networks to detect breast, prostate, and other major cancers.

New York-based Paige has raised over $75 million to date. The money came from Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division, and it means the company has now raised $50 million for its series B round, which was originally disclosed in December.

Paige will use the new capital to develop the company’s diagnostic and test products for the biopharma industry while strengthening its position in clinical AI for pathologists. It is also developing the Paige platform for remote viewing and routine clinical practice.

The company said it has added David Castelblanco, managing director at Goldman Sachs, to its board. Paige CEO Leo Grady

GermCide x review? Benefit from the special 50% discount and free shipping on this product.

Washing our hands and face is something we never think twice about. We sanitize high-touch surfaces in our household and spray disinfectants to keep germs at bay. What we don’t realize is that all of the precautionary measures we take might be easily reversed just by grabbing our phones, keys and other daily essentials.

A study conducted by the University of Arizona revealed that your cellphone is a hot spot for germs — in fact, they found that it can carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats.

While you might be familiar with using disinfectant wipes to clean your phone, household furniture and stationary, another possible way to combat the germs that live on your phone (and even elsewhere in your home) is with the Germcide

Growing Up Digital, Wired for Distraction

Joaquina Erdmann

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — On the eve of a pivotal academic year in Vishal Singh’s life, he faces a stark choice on his bedroom desk: book or computer?

By all rights, Vishal, a bright 17-year-old, should already have finished the book, Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle,” his summer reading assignment. But he has managed 43 pages in two months.

He typically favors Facebook, YouTube and making digital videos. That is the case this August afternoon. Bypassing Vonnegut, he clicks over to YouTube, meaning that tomorrow he will enter his senior year of high school hoping to see an improvement in his grades, but without having completed his only summer homework.

On YouTube, “you can get a whole story in six minutes,” he explains. “A book takes so long. I prefer the immediate gratification.”

Students have always faced distractions and time-wasters. But computers and cellphones, and the constant stream of stimuli they
