Radio Shack Reported To Be Ready for Bankruptcy Filing
I shopped there, the staff were helpful and knew about tech info before it was called tech. I bought a build it yourself metal detector there and found a four barrel Sharps derringer buried in a local park.

LAPD Orders Body Cams That Will Start Recording When Police Use Tasers
When I was in the thirteenth grade I enrolled in Crim 110, the entry level class for cops. I needed a class to fill up my schedule to be a full-time student and met two people who became cops. One a California Highway Patrol officer, the other a San Diego Sheriff. The instructor was a retired police officer who shared many tales about his work.
My car broke down when I was driving home from a friend's house and Tom the CHP officer stopped behind me, gave me a ride home, and called for a tow truck to .take my vehicle to my house. .

Bill Gates Endorses Water From Human Waste
The City of San Diego operated a pilot plant in Mission Valley near Jack Murphy Stadium to process wastewater into drinking water. It worked. I was a Water Plant Operator and know the process is safe when waste plant operators follow the proper procedures. The water produced was just returned to a sewer line 'cause it wasn't allowed to be used for drinking. A local news guy did a feature about the plant and took a drink from a gallon jug of recycled water. All hell broke loose. The State officials went crazy!
Another pilot plant used chlorine and UV to disinfect water. That worked, the water lab sampled and tested three times/day.
Why We're Not Going To See Sub-orbital Airliners
I saw a Concorde at a air show. The plane was two or three hundred meters away and facing me taxiing to the runway. The noise was amazing, I could feel it as much as I heard it. When it turned to begin the roll out to take off the sound was deafening. Brown Field is a small general aviation airport and the pilot must have had to go full throttle to get up to speed.
There's a mountain to the east of the runway. From The LATimes " A business jet carrying a two-person crew and eight members of country singer Reba McEntires entourage crashed into a mountain near the U.S.-Mexico border Saturday morning, killing all 10 people on board.". I worked nearby and the crash site was visible for years.

Better Learning Through Expensive Software? One Principal Thinks Not
My high school math teacher should have been at a college or university. Jack Munson had chalk dust flying as he filled the boards with formulas and equations, QED. Students HAD to keep up with him or be lost forever. My brother has a doctorate degree in math from UC Berkeley and I lived in his shadow. "Why aren't you like Pete?" I found a different career and did OK. Tough work conditions but the $money was good. Really good, back when a dollar was worth five dollars. I went to the High Sierras for two weeks at a cost of $200.00.

'Dark Magma' Could Explain Mystery Volcanoes
Ubehebe Crater is located in Death Valley, California. You-Bee-Hee-Bee. There is a place to view the crater from above the rim, really impressive. Death Valley attracts visitors from around the world and I met many travelers at the Stovepipe Wells General Store and at the Texas Spring camp. .

Ford Develops a Way To Monitor Police Driving
I drive to the local mountains and the desert to camp or for a day trip. I like to see the CHP on the road. The posted maximum speed is 70 MPH and today's roads are designed to have curves which can be safely driven at 80 or 90 MPH. Sometimes the officers must drive faster than normal traffic to find problem drivers .
