Terrorists killed almost 3,500 Americans worldwide since 2011, but Firearms in the hands of Americans have killed over 400,000 in the USA over the same period. THAT's terror and lack of security.

The Supreme Court was not concerned at all....  Data breach; won't happen.  Then, of course, it did. Lets set the real facts into the discussion about how safe we are giving the government  (just folks like us, really) the keys to the digital kingdom.
Over 21 million Americans have just had a taste of the federal government's weak computer security. The recent U.S.

New LiDAR overlays for Google Earth from my Carolina Bay Survey.


In support of my presentation at the GSA 2015 Meeting, I acquired and processed almost 60 billion classified data points on sub-meter spacing from… - Carolina Bay Survey - Google+

Wondrous suburban development built in 1920s inside a Carolina bay.
Windsor Farms is known for its beauty, history and money. It’s not known for its bayfront property.

Recent work has identified the age of these tektites to be 786,000 years old - identical to the age of the Australasian event. While the slightly different chemistry of the Belize tektites points to a different event, perhaps it only points to a different source rock during the same event. Given the scale of the Australasian event, a large crater footprint with diverse topography and intercontinental ejecta trajectories may be possible.
Jean H. Cornec, Geologist, September 2010 Tektites represent very special events in earth’s history. The uniqueness and molten appearance of tektites has led to the hypothesis that they were of extraterrestrial origin. Chinese literature reportedly describes tektites, known as “Lei -gong-m o”, meaning “inkstones of the thunder God” as far back as 900 AD. Australian Aborigines called tektites “ooga”, meaning "staring eyes". Their origin is a grea...

The world of the living contains enough marvels and mysteries as it is ^_^

Here it comes! Honest scientific debate can now be questionable by the Justice Department. Are they gearing up to keep their jobs when Trump arrives?
Unsure about climate change? Watch out: You may be risking jail. It starts with the Justice Department eyeing legal action against fossil-fuel companies for questioning climate-science claims. “We …

North Carolina is being treated to new LiDAR flights, courtesy of the USGS and the "Sandy" program. NC was the first state to fund Lidar back in 2000 and 2001, which resulted in a treasure-trove for Carolina bay affectionatos, as it presented them in their true glory. But... that early LiDAR was technically inferior to what is available today, as it was flown on 3-meter spacing and had problems getting through dense ground cover - especially in those areas that never have "leaf-off" conditions.

I am processing the new LiDAR, which is flown on 15 cm spacing, and does indeed get to bare-earth most of the time. I cut it down to 1-meter for saving, and am putting out 2-meter LiDAR tiled overlays for use in Google Earth.

Here are two examples from the Elizabethtown USGS Quad. Guess which one is which!

Many Carolina Bays have been developed, but this one's topography was used to design the entire neighborhood back in the 1920's.
