FCC This isn’t Oliver’s first time calling out the FCC. In May 2017, he aired a segment on net neutrality and asked the audience to flood the FCC with comments supporting net neutrality. Hours later, the agency’s comment system crashed. “Yes, FCC, we meet again, old friends,” said Oliver toward the end of the segment. The comedian stood on stage next to a sculpture of a giant finger about to press a huge button, saying he’d robocall the FCC commissioners every 90 minutes. “This time, unlike our past encounters, I don’t actually need to ask hordes of real people to bombard you with messages because, with the miracle of robocalling, I can now do it all by myself!”The FCC didn’t respond to a request for comment. Last Week Tonight declined to comment beyond the segment. Share your voice John Oliver joked Sunday that he’d call the FCC every 90 minutes. Screenshot by Marrian Zhou/CNET John Oliver is taking on his “old friends” at the FCC once again. On HBO’s Last Week Tonight on Sunday, the comedian zoomed in on the robocalls problem, citing research that says half of mobile phone calls in the US will soon be scam calls. The Federal Communications Commission has criticized robocalling and said it’d take action on the issue. In November, the agency said it planned to create a database that businesses can check to make sure the numbers they’ve been given permission to call haven’t been reassigned to other people. The FCC is also undertaking “light touch” regulatory actions to give wireless carriers more flexibility to block spam text messages.FCC Chairman Ajit Pai in February also called on carriers to implement robust caller ID authentication systems to combat illegal robocalls and spoofing. He said companies need to get their programs in place by the end of the year, or the FCC will consider “regulatory intervention.”However, Oliver said that’s not enough. He argued that although Pai “urged” telecom companies to implement call authentication programs, if he’d “required” them to do it, the problem might have already been fixed.

Kolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has made up a comprehensive plan to develop its model bustee at Hatgachia in Dhapa area as an ‘ideal’ one. The civic body will give a fresh coat of paint to the houses in the slum situated adjacent to the road and will then adorn it with paintings of freedom fighters and other great men who has made the state proud. The paintings will also have short messages of the famous personalities.”Our aim is to curb the tendency of littering the walls of the houses in the slum. When there will be such paintings, people will hesitate to spit or make the walls dirty. This will prevent visual pollution which is a common sight, particularly in the slums,” a senior official of the Bustee Development department of KMC said.

And for developing a model slum, it is important to instill such values within them. We are hopeful that this act will be a step in that direction,” said Swapan Samaddar, Member, Mayor-in-Council (Bustee Development). It may be mentioned that Hatgachia bustee has already been developed as a model slum and finishing touches are now being given. The slum has a children’s park, community hall, primary school, health centre and playground. The department has also taken up initiatives for social awareness to uplift the lifestyle of slum dwellers.

The programme will be taken up in all the 16 boroughs of KMC, with the aim to educate them about cleanliness, hygiene and similar other practices,” the official added. Celebrities from the field of sports, entertainment and literature are being roped in for conducting such programmes successfully. It may be mentioned that KMC has planned to develop nine slums in the city into ‘model slums’, to ensure that people in these areas get the basic civic amenities. “The basic aim is improvement in the socio-economic condition of these slums. The concept of model bustee is to ensure basic civic amenities like drinking water, drainage system, toilets and lighting facilities at every house. However, we will create additional infrastructure wherever there is availability of space,” Samaddar said.
