justice dept. sues to stop at&t’s $85b time warner deal


new york — the justice department is suing at&t to stop its $85 billion purchase of time warner, setting the stage for an epic legal battle with the telecom giant.the government claims that consumer cable bills will rise if the merger goes through, saying the deal would “substantially lessen competition, resulting in higher prices and less innovation for millions of americans.” at&t would be able charge rival distributors such as cable companies “hundreds of millions of dollars more per year” for time warner’s networks, the department of justice charged in a press release.those payments are ultimately passed down to consumers through their cable bills. the government also said the combined company would use its power to slow the tv industry’s shift to new ways of watching vid...






cutting the cord could cost as much as cable


 (photo: handout)los angeles — it seems that barely a day goes by without yet another announcement about a new entertainment streaming service, which raises the question: at what point do we start spending more dollars on streaming than cable tv?the streaming services were supposed to be an on-demand, low-cost answer to all those hundreds of channels that we pay for but rarely watch on cable tv.the "cutting the cord" movement began as a way to free ourselves from those huge cable bills, and packages that offer hundreds of channels. we watch few of them--in fact, the average viewer only tunes into 17, according to nielsen.why not just pay for what we want, and see entertainment on demand, when we want? that's what  "cutting the cord" is about. ditching the bundles, hidden taxes a...

science based - what's wrong with moving cables for space elevator?


your question doesn't address the primary structural issues with space elevators. your assumption seems to be that as the end of the cable gets farther away from the earth, the cable needs to be stronger. this is not, inherently, true.first, we need to define what we mean by 'cable': conventionally, a cable is a spool of intertwined smaller solid-metal cables that bind together to form a stronger, larger, cord. however once we're talking on the scale of a space elevator, the term 'cable' becomes much more broad. in that context, the cable is simply the mechanism that holds the end of the elevator (the "space station" so to speak) to the surface of the earth. a better word for it would be the "tether", rather than a cable, because it can be made in many different ways and with dif...






is it true that when extending a high watt appliance with a extension cord i sho


i am an european, so i am not sure if that matters. all i know is that i need a cable with the right amp or wattage throughput capability. our cables are named as 3x1.5, 3x2.5, 3x3.5 etc, i guess that is 3 cords that are 1.5 cm thick, 2.5 cm thick, etc..so i have heard the following and wanted to debunk it if its a myth. if let say an appliance of mine uses a 3x1.5 cable which has max 4 kw throughput, do i need a thicker extension cable than the original cable that this appliance use? or i am good with the same one as long as the capacity of the cable is higher than the appliance itself.it seems very pointless to me, but it makes me anxious when using random extension cords on higher wattage units like oil radiators and washing machines, as i never find them thicker then the appliance cabl






finally cut the cable tv cord in eight easy steps


(tutye/getty images/istockphoto)warning: this article may give you a headache — and if reading an article about the best way to cut the cable cord causes pain, imagine researching and writing it. the post-cable options are overwhelming, and no one solution does it all, although watching live sports without cable is no longer a problem. there are crazy contradictions to consider, such as how sometimes “triple-play” bundles (tv, internet and phone) are actually cheaper than ­“double-play” options (internet and phone) because of specials. but in all the confusion, one thing is clear: cable tv is expensive. americans spent an average of $103 a month — $1,236 a year — on cable television in 2016, according to leichtman research group. so that’s the number to beat.see whether yo...

road bike - end of brake cable touches tire


it looks like it's been cut too short so can't be tucked out of the way. but you may be able to cut it still shorter and use a smaller end cap/ferrule, or just part of one, or a blob of glue to stop the end fraying.bending the cable may work too -- you might not have enough length but a sharp bend away from the tyre might work. use longnose pliers. this stopped my front derailleur cable irritating my leg, for example.you're right to want to fix it -- metal rubbing on tyres isn't a good thing.
