I have a highspeed DSL connection and I have noticed recently when trying to watch Gloria.TV in high quality that there is a lot of stops because of buffering. But when I choose the average quality viewing option I can watch it uninterrupted. For me the resolution does not matter as long as I get the news reports uninterrupted.

... the United States has relied on large immigrant populations to offset decreases in births.
Debt and the Birth Dearth A number of important trends were revealed by the latest Census data, but none more important than the dynamic between demographics, economics, and morality. Yet the connection between the birthrate and American debt has been overlooked, in part because the nearly 10 percent increase in U.S. population from 2000 to 2010 hides the underlying drop in birthrate to its lowest … [More]
