FWD.us hopes for legislative immigration reform crushed

'Now, as hope for an overhaul fades, the group must reconcile Silicon Valley's high-flying ambition with the sobering lessons of Washington. 'In Silicon Valley if you don't like the taxi industry, you start Uber, you go around it,' said FWD.us President Joe Green, who helped establish the group alongside Facebook's Zuckerberg, his former college roommate.

MEXICO CITY: Fight to end telecom monopolies may be in trouble - Economy & Banking - MiamiHerald.com: "... While Slim’s Telcel will be forced to share its network infrastructure with other operators, and not charge them for calls to its own clients, the framework bill would let it enter the broadcast market after two years. Televisa, for its part, will be forced to publish its advertising rates and apply them to all customers, but it may be allowed to capture a significant portion of the market for wireless services. “At the end of the day, we thought the state was going to adequately regulate Carlos Slim and Televisa. But we see that the law ends up offering them privileges,” Denise Dresser, a columnist and commentator, told MVS Radio.

Televisa must provide access to the winners of the two new networks on its cable and satellite systems...."

36-Year-Old NASA Probe's Engines Successfully Fired Up by Private Team - Scientific American: "An old NASA spacecraft under the control of a private team fired its thrusters yesterday (July 2) for the first time in a generation. NASA's International Sun-Earth Explorer 3 probe (ISEE-3), which the agency retired in 1997, performed the maneuver in preparation for a larger trajectory correction next week. The spacecraft hadn't fired its engines since 1987, ISEE-3 Reboot Project team members said. It took several attempts and days to perform the roll maneuver because ISEE-3 was not responding to test commands. But this time, controllers got in touch. They increased the roll rate from 19.16 revolutions per minute to 19.76 RPM, putting it within mission specifications for trajectory corrections...."
