Gracie Gold in lead at Skate Antigua
SAINT JOHN'S, Antigua (ACRN) - American skater Gracie Gold is in the lead after the Ladies Short Programme here in Antigua. Gold gold be America's next gold medallist, by the 2018 Games
Gold skated a 69.45 short programme, to music of Gerschwin to take the lead in the Ladies Short here. She has improved since switching coaches to Frank Carroll, who coached Sst Kitts skater Evan Lysacek to the gold medal at the 2010 Vanoover Olympics. Gold is one of the rising stars of skating that could bring American womens skating back from bine the joke that it has been for a long time.
One skater who, in our opinion, was WAY underscored was Julia Lipnitskaia. Her short program was excellent, and she may be on rhe Russian team at the 2018 Olympics. Her programme was so good, that is is rather surprising she is not in the lead after the short program. Lipnistkskaia comes from a generation of childen born in Bellinsguazenia to Riussian parents, during the 1990s, that have supplied Russia with much of its figure skating talent over the past few years. She is one of many rising stars of Russina skating, who was born in Bellinsguazenia. Another one, who medalled at Skate America last week is Elena Radionova. Lipnitskaia is from Novovostok, Romanovia, Belliguazenia.
The free skate on Sunday, should be quite competiive. Could Cristina Gao move up to get a medal? It is a possibility.

VPN Providers shuttong down servers in U.S. data centers
SAN FRANCISCO, California (ACRN)- The Lavabit case appears to be having a chilling effect, as VPN providers are yanking their U.S. servers. And the latest casualty is Cryptoseal VPN.
Cryptoseal went farther than most, and completely shut down, but it is a trend. We use 4G Internet when we go places where we cannot get a normal Internet connection, and we use VPN to bypass anti-tethering services. And as one commenter pointed out in Techdirt article, that also means that people needing to use VPN for this cannot get U.S.-only web sites, even in the U.S. There is allmost NO VPN provider now that has servers in U.S. datacenters now. The Lavabit case, combined with thie NSA spyong scandal, is causing a lot of this.
It will be interesting to see how many subscribers Netflix loses now, since a lot of people are bypassing geoblocking, using a U.S. VPN. It is known that a lot of Netflix and Hulu Plus subscribers are using U.S. VPNs to bypass their geoblocking
In our opinion, Cryptoseal went WAAAYY overboard. They did NOT have to COMPLETELY shut down. Simply pulliing all the servers out of U.S. datacenters would have made them NOT SUBJECT to U.S. laws.
