FBI Drone Deployment Timeline

turkeydance more like this everyday (33 comments)

quote: the nonprofit Texas EquuSearch regarding its use of drones for volunteer search-and-rescue efforts. (We’ve featured Schulman before for his defense of Raphael “Trappy” Pirker, a drone pilot who was fined $10,000 by the FAA.) Shulman elaborates on the humanitarian use of civilian drones here in the United States. Texas EquuSearch has used civilian drones in its efforts since 2005. In fact, says Schulman, EquuSearch believes drones to be the “single most useful technology that the organization has ever used.” link: http://www.slate.com/blogs/fut...

turkeydance turkeydance writes  |  about a month and a half ago

turkeydance (1266624) writes "CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) – Scientists have patented a new machine that will provide orgasms for women at the push of a button.

New device aims to treat gunshot wounds

turkeydance turkeydance writes  |  about 2 months ago

turkeydance (1266624) writes "Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest. Although there’s nothing simple about the impact of a gunshot wound on the human body, the process of treating gun injuries on a battlefield might become a bit faster and safer. At least, that’s the goal of the XStat, a new syringe-like device that injects a dressing straight into a wound. The XStat, created by company RevMedX (which stands for Revolutionary Medical Technology), is still a patent-pending design. — See more at: http://www.alloutdoor.com/2014..."

right here at home, we have this Arctic Thing (not the movie)
the Chinese got it going on. here's a quote for all y'all:

In 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey released an assessment revealing that the Arctic accounts for about 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil, 30 percent of its undiscovered natural gas, and 20 percent of its undiscovered natural gas liquids. In other words, 90 billion barrels of oil, 1,669 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 44 billion barrels of natural gas.

NASCAR bans digital radios

turkeydance turkeydance writes  |  about 7 months ago

turkeydance (1266624) writes "in-car digital radios (communications with spotters/etc.) cannot be monitored as analog can. NASCAR opts-in for transparency, apparently.
Among other changes will be the ban of digital radios –- which are not able to be monitored like their analog versions –-
on the spotter stand. In addition, only one spotter per team, with two analog radios, will be allowed on spotter stands.

The location will allow startup entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world to start or grow their company near Silicon Valley, without the need for a U.S. work visa.

So far, over 1000 entrepreneurs from 60+ countries expressed interest in living on the ship."
