In the Unverified Digital World, Are Journalists and Bloggers Equal?
Read (watch or listen) to about any article on a subject that you have a working understanding of, done by journalists.
Then read a blog by a real "subject matter expert" and which one will be more informative?
As the old saying goes, "if you know what they write is incorrect, why believe what they write on other subjects?"
Don't Help Your Kids With Their Homework
When your child gets stuck on a problem, you should call the teacher.
If no contact with the teacher, call the principal.
If no contact with the principal, call the superintendent.
If no contact with the superintendent, call the school board members.
Fluke Donates Multimeters To SparkFun As Goodwill Gesture
Ground wires are green and yellow only after you check them out.
I have seen more than one hot green wire.
Have also seen where all four wires coming out of the conduit and into a small (10hp) motor were black, no tags or colored tape either.

Drone Pilot Wins Case Against FAA
I was wondering if the "active" was for the charges only. As in, there was helicopter activity. Not generally available.
No, all do not have restricted air space at all times. It, the pad could have restricted airspace when it is used as a heliport but when it is not being used it can be a parking lot with no restrictions.
I have seen a house in a wildland fire area with a heliport, with a lighted landing area and a windsock. The owner built the heliport (to FAA specs.) just in case of a wildfire so that the firefighting helicopters could use it. The builder was a retired firefighter and wanted a little extra protection. It has been used for the firefighting helicopters too. But mostly it was a paved area that vehicles were parked on.
Others that I have seen are larger piers that have a helicopter landing area designated that are used daily as a pier and seldom as a heliport. But it still is a heliport.
Drone Pilot Wins Case Against FAA
Was the heliport the hospitals? By "active" does that mean that the heliport was actually being used at the time by a helicopter or that the heliport is used regularly but not at the time the drone was flying?
If a helicopter was taking off or landing and if the drone was in flight and actually near the heliport at the time, then I could see the charges.
There are many painted circles with H's in them that are not used very often. If these are going to be considered active heliports, lots of questions will need to be asked.
We had one of these painted circles at work and if it was used as a heliport twice a year, that would have been a busy year for it.

U.S. Teenagers Are Driving Much Less: 4 Theories About Why
Retired, bought a motorcycle and put many more miles on it than on my car.
Those miles are put on in the 7 months of not winter when I can ride the bike too.
As for the kids driving.
Too much of a hassle to get a license, buy gas, buy insurance, follow the rules and any number of things that make it difficult to get in a car and go.
Why Birds Fly In a V Formation
About the seagulls, could it be because the gulls glide so much better? At least the larger gulls do.
They lock their wings and go and go, little to no flapping riding the wind and thermals.
They are also near the top of the airborne predator lists, very few other birds will even attempt to take a adult gull.
Ask Slashdot: What Are the Books Everyone Should Read?
Each branch of the military has a reading list that is very good.
Usually they are put out by the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
For those of you that get your military knowledge from television, reading some of the books on these lists will help you gain a understanding of how the military works and lives.

The Golden Gate Barrage: New Ideas To Counter Sea Level Rise
Thought this article was from the Onion for a bit, there are rivers running into S.F. Bay.
Does the dam back the water up until it reaches Stockton, which runs somewhere around 10 to 30 feet above sea level?
So might not every foot of dam will have the same amount of water on both sides after awhile.
Oh, yeah I forgot there are going to be big pumps putting all that water on the other side of the dam.
Wonder what is going to power those pumps?
Will it eventually look like the Ninth Ward in New Orleans after Katrina?
Have eBooks Peaked?
The market share is still expanding, just at a slower rate.
Most of us have a basic library of e-books already and are not buying as much as we used to.
If the price difference between a electronic published and one printed on paper is not that great, then the tree dies.
When a paper book is not one that I am going to read again, off it goes to the used book store for credit on my account.
Try doing that with a e-book.
Where is this survey getting its data?
If the numbers are coming from Association of American Publishers and they (the AAP) are using the big 5's reports then this could be a GIGO problem.
