Obama to allow US telecoms to operate in Cuba

In Obama’s latest bid to try ease relations between the U.S. and communist Cuba, Obama has outlined plans to allow U.S. telecommunications companies to place bids for licenses to supply their services in Cuba. The new rules will allow U.S. telecoms to setup networks, including fiber-optic cables and satellites to link the U.S. with Cuba.

This could pave the way to bring more affordable communication systems to Cuba, and will increase the follow of information to the island.

The move comes about a week ahead of the Summit of the Americas meeting in Trinidad.

Obama most recently announced plans to removed some travel restrictions to Cuba, with the hope of eventually completely eliminating travel restrictions to the island (which would require congressional passing).

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
