We are skeptics who have devoted much of our careers to practicing and promoting scientific skepticism. We ask that journalists use more care when reporting on those who reject climate science, and hold to the principles of truth in labeling. Please stop using the word “skeptic” to describe deniers.
Public discussion of scientific topics such as global warming is confused by misuse of the term skeptic.

I think that there are too many inter-dependencies +Mary R Politicians can't bite the hands that feed them. Also, the average person cares just what affect them directly. A complicated and detailed scientific explanation will put off even educated people.

Bionics have long been toward the top of the list of potential life-changing graphene applications, but actually getting the substance to play nice with our sensitive human tissue is another issue entirely. The primary problem is heat. Delivering power to the rigid material causes it to get hot, frying the surrounding soft tissue in the process.

In a recent simulation by teams from MIT and Bejing’s Tsinghua University, however, scientists believe they’ve hit upon a solution: water. A thin wall of the stuff separating graphene from tissue could save surrounding cells from a deep fried death.

What's most striking to me is the hexagonal shape of these "advanced" materials.........just like snowflakes and honeycombs......nature is far ahead of anything man can conceive...............the hexagon is perhaps the most efficient shape for using the smallest amount of material to achieve a given result...........

Maybe a drone will drop your packages more gently than a delivery person from UPS.

No more waiting for a brown truck to show up.

Comparatively speaking.....its a wash.....most ups or any other packages I see when visiting my clients are just left in the vicinity of the domicile...........no notification or courtesy.....just plopped down and .....gone.....so....a drone is the equivalent of a human in that context................most of my clients are a bit ........... Miffed about the lack of communication............an expensive package is just left around the premises..........I usually bring them inside ..............in the course of my daily evaluation and assessment...............
So yah.....a drone is just as effective as a person who doesn't give a rats pattuti about the client/customer .........

We don't charge anything....so my people are clients.........

Billie Holiday - I´ll Be Seeing You

"I'll Be Seeing You" is a popular song, with music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Irving Kahal.[1] Published in 1938, it was inserted into the Broadway musical Right This Way, which closed after fifteen performances.[2] In the musical it was performed by the singer Tamara Drasin, who had a few years earlier introduced "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". The song is a jazz standard, and has been covered by many musicians.

The musical theme has emotional power, and was much loved during World War II, when it became an anthem for those serving overseas (both British and American soldiers).

"We found that drinking a glass of beer helps people see happy faces faster, and enhances concern for positive emotional situations," said lead researcher Matthias Liechti, head of psychopharmacology research at University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland.

In other words, drinking beer might make you more social and more empathetic.

Fall risk increases as aging people's muscles weaken, they become less active and they develop chronic health issues, researchers have found.

Injury rates from falls are seven times higher for seniors with medical issues than for those who are healthy, the CDC reported. Taking multiple medications adds to the danger.

Glatter added that vision problems, poorly fitting shoes and loose carpeting can also lead to falls.

I'm glad you brought this up.......next to automobile accident......falls are the leading cause of injury and death in USA........that's for the working population in general....it's much more dangerous for a senior .....a broken hip from a fall is often fatal for a senior......
Ive seen so many gashed heads and broken wrist/arms/cuts and bruises.........than I can shake a stick at......

So far this year......two of my clients have died as a result of falls..................what's really upsetting for everyone.......they were both alone at the time..............we managed to save eleven others..........who now have lost their independence............
My mother fell and broke her wrist......she wasn't allowed to be alone after that........it's a tough situation to deal with..............
Elders tend to very stubborn and independent..................

Canada is intent on pushing its regulatory advantage. To further reduce administrative burden, Transport Canada issued a blanket exemption in November for small drones of less than 25 kg, allowing commercial operations as the default. Operators must agree to obey certain rules, such as not flying drones near people, animals, vehicles, or buildings that are not part of business operations.

In the push to get commercial drone operations off the ground, America has fallen far behind.

Here's one reason to think that the FAA is not capable of effective regulation:
US drones are classified by how many pounds they weigh.
That's a big loophole for lighter than air drones.
There is literally no limit then about how much they mass.
A drone the size of the a aircraft carrier weighs less than nothing. It may have 30,000 kilos of mass but it's weight in level, climbing, and depending on the design, decending flight can always be less than 1/2 pound.
The only time it can have weight is when it it not in operation.
