Helen Skelton earlier this year was the first person to tricycle to the south pole. Dan set out on his expedition in early November and finished in late January. He started cycling after being laid off from Novell to help him overcome some health problems. A few years later he decided to do what had never been done before. He states that it was the most difficult thing he has ever done in his life." Link to Original Source top
Psychotic_Wrath writes "Salt Lake Police department will be much more transparent with their law enforcement. A program is being rolled out to require officers wear glasses equipped with a camera to record what they see. Of course there are several officers that oppose this idea, and will resist the change. One of the biggest shockers to me is that the police chief is in strong support of this measure.
If Chief Burbank gets his way, these tiny, weightless cameras will soon be on every police officer in the state.
With all the opposition of police officers being recorded by citizens that we are seeing throughout the country it is quite a surprise that they would make a move like this. The officers would wear them when they are investigating crime scenes, serving warrants, and during patrols.
Suddenly Utah isn't looking like such a bad place to be. Now we just need to hope other states and departments would follow suite. It sure will be nice when there is video evidence to show the real story.
Psychotic_Wrath writes "After a long drawn out legal battle and a hung jury, a federal judge dismissed the antitrust case against Novell. The case involved allegations that Microsoft removed code from its Windows 95 operating system that caused further development to Word Perfect and thus delaying the release of their product giving Microsoft Word an unfair advantage."
