Ohio Amazon Web Services data center users can now access the AWS Cloud through the US East (Ohio) Region. The Region is comprised of three data center Availability Zones, making cloud access available across the eastern and central US. Availability Zones operate independently of one another and are connected by networks designed to operate with a very quick response time, called low-latency networks. Three Availability Zones mean more options and better quality for AWS Cloud users.Embracing a cloud-based service may be a smart decision for a company, as it is often the cheapest option and can free up sections of a workforce to focus on other tasks. It is quickly becoming the norm for companies in a wide variety of industries. Governor John Kasich responds to the new Region in a video statement released by the Governor’s office, “It's clear that the world’s economy is moving to digital technologies and cloud computing. And Amazon Web Services’ commitment here demonstrates the leading role that we hope Ohio can play in that world. ... Ohio is not just embracing the new knowledge economy, we’re also advancing the technologies on which that economy will thrive.”

Article | February 18, 2020

Around the world, businesses, governments and NGOs are excitedly anticipating the benefits of 5G. This truly revolutionary technology will unlock enormous opportunity: connecting underserved populations; bringing economic prosperity to remote areas; making communities smarter and safer; and powering growth in a vast array of technological fields. However, the infrastructure required to support 5G is not being rolled out at a consistent pace around the world. In China, for example, the state-controlled economy allows for the broad and rapid deployment of 5G infrastructure. By contrast, wireless providers in the US must work with local, state and federal governments, regulators and thousands of local communities in order to build the required infrastructure.

Don’t fall for this coronavirus ‘5G Syndrome’ hoax on Facebook

Article | March 16, 2020

The claim: “Coronavirus Hoax: Fake Virus Pandemic Fabricated to Cover-Up Global Outbreak of 5G Syndrome." — headline on an article being widely shared on Facebook. PolitiFact ruling: False. World experts say the virus originated in an animal — perhaps in a bat that transmitted the virus to another animal, and then to humans. Discussion: Tentacles of lightning illuminate a stormy sky. Three people wear medical face masks, worry visible in their eyes. Next to those two images is one more that reads simply "5G" — a reference to the fifth-generation of wireless networking technology. The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed.
