Message-ID: <20220202143124.GA31099@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Date: Wed, 2 Feb 2022 14:31:24 +0000 From: Bill Horne <malQRMassimilation@gmail.com> Subject: Bluetooth Keeps Stopping As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was given a Google Pixel Fi phone by a kind neighbor. I got a Verizon SIM from Ting.com, and looked forward to have a "new" phone. It makes and receives calls OK, but there's a problem: Every few seconds, it pops up a notice that says "Bluetooth Keeps Stopping," with options to send a problem report, stop the app, or obtain app information. It's never-ending: I keep pushing "Stop the APP," and it keeps coming back a few seconds later. Please tell me if you know of any cure for his problem, and thanks for your help.

These 3,900 field technicians, customer service representatives, and back office workers across California, New York, and Connecticut won wage increases, retained 401k benefits, protected jobs from outsourcing and eliminated two-tier medical plans. These victories show that despite corporate austerity measures and attempts to undercut the union, the working class can and must fight back. https://www.liberationnews.org/telecommunications-workers-secure-gains-through-national-strike/

By Justin Garcia on Wed, Feb 2, 2022 at 5:29 pm Last month, contractors for Frontier Communications were named in several reclaimed water spill incidents, totaling over 500,000 gallons. The spills occurred when three different contractors working for Frontier hit water mains and released the water in mostly small amounts, except for a huge half-a-million gallon spill on Jan. 19. Vertek LLC, while working for Frontier, hit an eight-inch water main causing it to break, Pinellas County reported to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). The spill went on for four hours, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. During that time, the water spilled and saturated the area before going into Boca Ciega Bay. https://www.cltampa.com/news/frontier-contractors-spill-over-500000-gallons-of-reclaimed-water-in-pinellas-county-over-last-month-12810104
