AT&T Hit with $100mn Fine After Slowing Down ‘Unlimited’ Data

AT&T hit with $100mn fine after slowing down ‘unlimited’ data The Federal Communications Commission hit telecommunications giant AT&T with a $100 million fine, the largest it has ever levied, for slowing down the internet speeds of customers with “unlimited” data plans.

5 Reasons Kylie Jenner May Be Helpful in the Fight Against Chemtrails

Firstly, Miss Jenner no doubt has seen her parents and siblings without make up and before getting plastic surgery done. She knows that there is a reality behind the image put out there for public consumption. Voices in the chemtrail movement are generally suggesting that there is something going on behind the white curtain of strange looking streaks that expand into odd-looking and oddly-colored cloud formations in our beautiful blue skies. What these chemtrail activists fear may be behind them is not an average looking face or blemishes on skin, but something far uglier, sinister and harmful to our health…
