If you were a cop who saw a Suspect that had possibly robbed and shot a guy earlier in the week in a car with 3 other guys, would you wait for backup or approach the vehicle alone after it stopped?
  
Would you be so pumped on adrenaline and delusions, when you approached the car alone, that you would shoot at the first twitch?  Have to wait till tomorrow to find out if there was a gun in the car, or not... Might not even be the right guy.  
The 3 other people in the car tell a different story than the cop.
Richard Ramirez, 38, has been identified as the man who died in an officer-involved shooting Monday night, according to Billings Police Chief Rich St. John.

How is it that Henry Ford created a renewable fuel for tractors and transportation vehicles 100 years ago out of a simple weed that grows practically anywhere, and "we" somehow deemed it a Deadly and Dangerous weed shortly after?

1.  Do you have any documentation?  I believe you, but I try to make it a habit to ask for documentation on things I read on the internet,  I have been burned before.  :-)

2.  America has a long history of suppressing certain technologies to make others more profitable,  tis not surprising at all.  But there is reason for hope because progress is being made on marijuana and hemp at the moment.

The news says businesses are hurting because of the government being shut down... Sounds like it's the perfect time to start a private business that takes over the responsibilities.  You want less government... NOW is the time.

All these silly apps and there is not one for handling photo/video feeds for 911... slackers.  EMTchat would be better than SNAPchat anyway... A few jobs could be added for trained field medics to hang out in the 911 call receiving center to get things ready for the ambulance... or alleviate the need for an ambulance altogether.

Make sure Apple and Bill pay you $0.10 per phone that they have ever sold so that it can be included in every phone.  ;)

Why does my cheap $10 phone have little rubber pieces to help waterproof it that go into the ports when they are not in use, but my $400 iPhone just leaves the ports wide open for any random drop of water to find a home?

If that is complicated then I am an even greater genius than Da' Vinci himself.

Why do we subsidize the oil industry to keep the price of fuel at a stable level; while allowing the medical industry to regulate its own prices through the insurance industry?

I think we should empty our prisons on the next country that decides it wants to go to war.  Give each violent offender $2,000 and a one way plane ticket.  To show them what fun war can be for the truly psychotic.  Being sure to post lots of video cameras in the area, Reality television at its' finest!

Approximated Heptagon Inscribed in a Circle

During this time at school, I'm doing with my first- year students (11 years old)  the construction of regular polygons. Among those, the regular heptagon's construction presents particular problems because its perfect construction, only with straightedge and compass, is impossible.

The heptagon is in fact the regular polygon with less number of sides which can't be built with elementary tools.

Before Gauss, the problem of the construction, with straightedge and compass, of regular polygons was open for 2000 years.  In Euclid's Elements (IV Book), Euclid had demonstrated that they could be built, with straightedge and compass, regular polygons with 3, 4, 5, 15 sides (and also those obtained by bisecting these sides). With regard to regular polygons with 7, 9, 11, 14, 17 sides it was not known  how to build them. 

The genius of Carl Friedrich Gauss discovered that a regular polygon of n sides is constructible with straightedge and compass only if n is an integer power of 2, or the product among a power of 2 and one or more Fermat primes.

Fermat primes are primes of form 2^(2^k) + 1, for some k >= 0.
The only known Fermat primes are F0= 3 , F1= 5, F2= 17, F3= 257, and F4= 65537 (sequence A019434 in OEIS: http://oeis.org/A019434).

Since 7 is not a Fermat prime, it's impossible to construct a regular heptagon with straightedge and compass, while it's possible to construct a regular 17-gon (heptadecagon).
 
Watch below an  approximated drawing of a regular heptagon inscribed in a circle showing animated straightedge  and compass.

Why are there so many language translators, but no Sign Language to Speech translators?  There are speech to sign translators.  Every modern mobile device has at least one camera... If it can recognize a face, it can recognize a hand signal.
