OpenCulture - "The Paramount Vault, a digital cinematic storehouse sorted into playlists of Classics, Comedy, Action/Adventure, Drama, Horror, Westerns, Science Fiction, and Thrillers, containing such pictures as Ironweed, Hamlet, Paris When It Sizzles, King Creole, Dark City, Funny About Love, and Margot at the Wedding — all of which, unfortunately, you can only watch in the United States. "
Back in October, we posted about Paramount Pictures' making available more than a hundred movies free to watch on Youtube.

Twenty years ago today Hurricane Fran made landfall near Bald Head Island in North Carolina and passed right over my house 120 miles inland. Maximum winds were 130 mph and 37 people were killed in total.
Hurricane Fran killed 24 people when the state’s population was 7 million. Now there are more than 10 million people in North Carolina.

NASA aircraft and scientists have returned to the United States after a short ice-surveying mission to Antarctica. Despite having only a week of flying time, the team returned with crucial scientific data and a trove of spectacular aerial photographs.

The flights over Antarctica were part of Operation IceBridge, a multi-year mission to monitor conditions in Antarctica and the Arctic until a new ice-monitoring satellite, ICESat-2, launches in 2016. ICESat-1 was decommissioned in 2009, and IceBridge aircraft have been flying ever since.

Story
Introduction
I have degrees in Computer Science and Geospatial Information Science and Technology.

I have 15 years of optical network engineering experience, a recent MS Degree in GIS from the Center for Geospatial Analytics at NC State and worked in R&D in fiber-optics for over twelve years in Raleigh, NC. I was an employee of the terrestrial and access networks division at Alcatel (now Nokia Optical Networks) from 1997-2009. We were first to market with gigabit passive optical networks (GPON) in 2005. I assisted in the set up of the new hardware and system test labs starting with an empty building  in 2003 and I assisted three hundred architects, project managers, vice presidents, engineers and software developers. I personally built, configured network settings, and installing the first firmware on every home optical network prototype we designed from 2001-2009. I also tested, debugged, repaired and delivered all prototype hardware during all phases of hardware design to all developers and test engineers. I personally tested the optical interfaces cards for the first fiber to the home field trial for AT&T at Mission Bay San Francisco in 2002. We designed up to fifty possible versions of home optical network terminals and our networking system hardware was selected for the Verizon FiOS project in 2008. If you become aware of any lower level, non management positions fiber-optics hardware or network design positions in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area I would like to speak with you.
