Oh, "Lucy." I get that Besson was swinging for the fences, and I give him points for that, but the result is just a mess. Not Johansson's fault, she did great work with lousy material.

This is a wonderful show talking about what it's like growing up deaf and eventually connecting with the Deaf world.  (Note, the signing here is BSL, not ASL.  Very different :)

Can anyone identify this font?  On the T-shirt build site I used for my sweatshirts, they called it 'Aardvark', but none of the font download sites have an 'Aardvark' that looks like this.  Anyone?

Hey, do you know any companies in New Hampshire looking for tax credits?  Makeit Labs is looking for companies to buy tax credits to support a grant for the buildout of our new space....

"We have applied to the CDFA’s Tax Credit Program, and need letters from companies pledging to buy tax credits from us in order to strengthen our chances.  Our proposed project is the complete 2nd floor renovation of the new location to house a co-working space and future technology incubator.  If you can help, even a little, please contact us as soon as possible!

Businesses that donate to a CDFA-approved project can get at least 75% of that contribution back in the form of a state business tax credit, and the donation also may be eligible for treatment as a state and federal charitable contribution.
Read all about the tax credit program here: http://nhcdfa.org/tax-credits/program"

To contact Makeit see the contact page at http://www.makeitlabs.com/contact/ !

I'm really bothered that the photo here is "A typical hobby camera drone".  That drone is nothing of the sort.  The drone you are picturing there is a short range racer.  It rarely flys more than a few hundred feet from it's pilot, and is designed for racing and acrobatics.

The drones that are the problems are those built by the large commercial entities, like DJI.  Phantoms and Inspires are a rich kids toy, that have one purpose and one purpose only.  Fly over a long distance and take photos.  What you've pictured is not one of those, and frankly, the camera drone operators are making it extremely hard on the builders, such as myself, who take sharing the skies seriously, and would NEVER interfere with a support / rescue / fire operation.

Disclosure - I am the chairman of the US Drone Racing Association, and one of our missions is to educate the public.  Not all drones and drone pilots are the same.

Really had fun at the USDRA race day.  I put together a video showing some of the awesome crashes, and interviewed a few of the participants.  Enjoy!   (Also?  Please Like and Subscribe - it really does help!)

+Chip Olson I was hoping to make the climb up to Cannon, but we were very delayed on Saturday, and didn't arrive at the hut until 2p or so.  That's not enough time to make the loop up to Cannon and back.  Next time though.  The maps shows that to be quite a scramble.  Should be fun!
