(on voting for a commemorative coin in 2007 for the State of Alaska celebrating 50 years of statehood) … but then-governor Sarah Palin made the final choice: the brown bear. "I think nothing could be more Alaskan," she said.

Two weeks after announcing the quarter's design, she introduced a bill to allow the aerial shooting of brown bears, wolves, and wolverines …

The following year she sued the federal government for listing polar bears as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act. Protecting polar bears, she said, would have a "significant adverse impact on Alaska by deterring activities such as commercial fisheries, oil and gas exploration and development, transportation, and tourism …

Need to figure out why sometimes my Charge HR fails to properly record heart rate ... here you can see a sudden drop-off where it goes from 115 down to 90 and then jumps up to 150 once I adjust the band while walking uphill.

I have no idea why Pace is in feet and inches, and is all over the place.

I don't want to sound judgemental of cat owners and I understand that having a cat and letting it wander the suburbs is just the done thing ... but it's kinda sad to see so many domestic cats out wandering the streets; Buddy and I came across 8 on our short round-the-block stroll last night. Hate to think of what they're doing to our native wildlife and I look forward to a future where domestic cats are kept indoors or in backyard enclosures, where that's seen as responsible cat ownership rather than structural changes enforced by government if you're "unfortunate" enough to live in a mandatory cat containment area.

Being a distributed company we use Skype and Google Hangouts a lot and often people in the same office will be on a call with interstate or even international colleagues and clients. Clustering around a laptop doesn't work, nor does having two people sitting next to each other with headets as you get echo from your voice being picked up by their mic unless you're flipping mute on and off every few seconds. Solution? The Jabra 510 Bluetooth and USB speakerphone - the sound quality of the speaker and 360° microphone are exceptional.
