    DeVos visits Puerto Rico to boost privatization of public schools
    By Rafael Azul

    ... Members of the Federación de Maestros de Puerto Rico rallied at the headquarters of the Department of Education in San Juan to demand a meeting with Keleher. The FMPR union has charged Keleher with deliberately keeping many of the island’s schools closed, even after teachers and other volunteers have cleared them of debris and cleaned them, because she intends to permanently shutter them ...

    Please click on NNQueens comment to view my answers. Thanks.

    The Federal Government doesn't even care enough about us to rebuild anything that would restabilize our own disaster victims

    How governments legally seize private property and sell that same property to land developers.

    AT&T Drones Are Cleared for Take Off in Puerto Rico

    Reuters

    ... The Pulse Vapor 55 drone functions like a cell tower in the sky, providing voice, data and internet service, the FAA said; it flies up to 200 feet above the ground, covering an area of 40 square miles. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on Friday said it had approved a request by AT&T to use a new drone known as the Flying Cow or Cell on Wings to help restore cellular service in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria ...

    I swear if America's treatment of it's territorial populations as well as it's taxpaying citizenry wasn't so disgustingly tragic it'd be funny.

    I guess nobody knew about the first cellphone reconnect fiasco affectionately called "Project Loon" Fitting.

    Nevertheless, the article I posted contained this on Project Loon:


    "The “Project Loon” balloon project is delivering limited internet connectivity to LTE enabled phones in the hardest-hit areas of Puerto Rico and Alphabet said on Nov. 9 the project had delivered basic internet connectivity to more than 100,000 people on the island ..."

    My comment addressing the Google X Project Loon Balloons not being known were in no way a slight on you Mr. C. I read your article thoroughly but the general public has not been made aware that only 11 balloons were launched from the Northeast and the 6 that eventually survived to reconnect cellphone and internet service were incompatible with a large majority of the legacy phones so instead of bringing the birthday balloons down to reconfigure the transponders they decided to get AT&T who they should have used in the first place to ramp up this experimental drone program which is much more controllable and less prone to airspace compromise. I know this because air enthusiast like myself tracked the X Balloons from start to finish via Flight Tracker 24 using a free ADB-S digital software program and a $20.00 DVB-T SDR. running off laptops. Many people use this to track AF-1, perfectly legal and quite entertaining. The paparazzi used this program to track the jet owned not by Tyler Perry as advertised but Roy Poletcheck who leases his jets out to celebrities like this one carrying Whitney Houston's body flown from Cali to New Jersey so they could get a jump on the mainstream press.

    I am going to try to post a cut and paste but if it doesn't work feel free to look up The Whitney Houston Celebrity Flight in RadioReference Aircraft Monitoring Forum dated: 02/13/2012 at 6:26PM for the full story.

    Again, no disrespect intended and thanks for that other thing.
