This is the transcript for episode 294 of the Community Broadband Bits podcast. Robert Bridgham shares lessons learned from the Eastern Shore of Virginia Broadband Authority. Listen to this episode here.
Robert Bridgham: So the second reason is that the Broadband Authority when we created our original business plan was, in addition to the NASA piece, was also to be able to create a infrastructure on the Eastern Shore that had previously not existed. The only provider that was here on the shore as a ubiquitous coverage of the shore was Verizon as a local phone company, an ILEC and they have some DSL service on some parts of the shore. But as traditional with a lot of DSL deployments, copper is what's important and there's a lot of bad copper on the shore and so far the phone company hasn't really been interested in upgrading or maintaining the fi-- the copper plant. So the people to sure have continue to suffer and there's quite a few places where there is absolutely zero coverage. So when we built out the backbone we also had agreed that we would also start to connect businesses, commercial entities, government organizations, hospitals, and healthcare environments as well as other Internet providers and telecommunications writers to basically be the underlying trunking, or piping if you would, between all these different organizations on the shore so they had more reliable connectivity, higher bandwidth available, and hopefully driving the cost down over time. And we've accomplished all of that. The last thing that was sort of on our list of original things we want to do is we want to make sure that everybody on the shore had broadband coverage to their house. Our original plans were to work with different Internet service providers and basically facilitate their ability to reach the end users, and us again becoming the trunk or the piping between them and their end users or tower sites, so they can reach them in the wireless cases. That was a year and a half ago. Our board, under quite a few pieces of feedback from the local leaders in the community-- the residents are the people of the Eastern shore-- has been constantly pressured. They said, "Hey why can't you just do it directly to the end user. You've got cable up and down the road you get cables, you know, by my house. I can -- I can throw a tennis ball and hit your cable. Why can't I use it?" And so the board last September made a decision to start doing Fiber-to-the-Home in a test town called Harborton, Virginia, and we started to build it and sell it and get customers. And it was working well we had a fairly good signing rate. We had services that were very well people were incredibly pleased with it.

This is Episode 194 of the Community Broadband [no-glossary]Bit[/no-glossary]s Podcast. Chris speaks with Travis Carter of local Internet Service Provider US Internet in Minneapolis. Travis describes how this local ISP builds networks to serve the community. Listen to this episode here.
Travis Carter: It's one of those scenes that I remember and I often look back upon, is there's Rodney sitting in the class with the traditional, highly educated English professor at the board, writing down how stereotypical business is done. Rodney keeps interrupting and raising his hands and saying, "Oh! What about this? What about that? This is how it happens in the real world." As I hear people talk and I hear people discuss technology and applications and the process of bringing it to bear, I often want to raise my hand and go, "What about this? What about that?" We approach technology from a very practical application standpoint, not-so-much from a theory standpoint. We actually get out in the ground and dig holes and hang fiber and bury fiber and hang radios and service customers, do the whole fulfillment cycle. It always takes me back to that movie, because I'm, "You're missing a lot. There's a lot of pieces to this puzzle." Quite frankly, I think a lot of people that I've talked to, they have one or two of the pieces, but it's a 1,000 piece puzzle.
Naruto's Boruto: Naruto Next Generations sequel has officially come to an end with the Boruto anime's newest episode, and has dropped an ominous tease about the infamous time skip with the final moments of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations' midseries finale! Boruto: Naruto Next Generations' anime wrapped up the final moments of the Code Invasion arc with the promise that the anime will be returning for a Part 2 some time in the future. But it left fans definitely anxious over what could be coming next for Boruto Uzumaki and Kawaki when the anime finally comes back in the future with new episodes.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Part 1 officially came to an end with Boruto Episode 294, and explored the intense fallout of everything that happened between Boruto and Kawaki in the last few episodes. As the anime gears up for its ominous future, we got a brief return to how it all began with a revisiting of the time skip sequence between Boruto and Kawaki that originally kicked off the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime nearly 300 episodes ago! Check it out as spotted by @Abdul_S17 on Twitter:
For those asking when is Boruto coming back with the new episodes, Part 2 has been announced but has yet to set a release date or window as of the initial announcement. It's likely going to be a while to give the Boruto manga more time to flesh out its events and even lead into this time skip, so Boruto anime fans will likely have to be a little patient before we get to see this time skip tease come to full fruition in the anime's future some day.
The final episode of part 1, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 293, saw Boruto being revived by Momoshiki using his Otsutsukification process. However, Kawaki, who plans to eliminate any threat that will harm Naruto, including Boruto, is not convinced and still intends to carry out his plan.

Bundled payments are viewed as a middle ground between FFS and capitated reimbursement models. Under the bundled payment model studied, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) sets a target price for an entire episode of care, including the initial acute care hospital stay and post-acute care during the recovery period. Hospitals are eligible for bonus payments from Medicare if they spend less than the target price for an episode, provided that they meet the quality standards. Conversely, they are responsible for paying the difference if they spend more than the target price. The goal is to encourage appropriate provision of care and also coordination of care among multiple providers.
The CJR bundled payment model reduced the share of patients discharged to institutional post-acute care settings such as skilled nursing, long-term care, or inpatient rehabilitation facilities after their hip or knee replacements by 2.9 percentage points, relative to the control group average of 33.7 percent (an 8.6 percent decrease). Spending in institutional post-acute care during the episode also declined by $307 per episode relative to a control group average of $3,871(an 8 percent decrease). The CJR bundled payment model decreased total Medicare spending per episode by $453 relative to a control group average of $22,872 (a 2 percent decrease), a result that was significant at the 10 percent level. Once bonuses to hospitals participating in the CJR bundled payment model were factored in, there was no statistically significant difference in total Medicare spending. There was no evidence that the CJR bundled payment model had any effect on health care quality during the episode, the volume of patients treated, or the case mix of patients treated. 041b061a72
