+Zuleyka Zevallos has done this excellent write up about the march for science

http://www.minoritypostdoc.org/view/2017-8-1-zevallos-MfSDiversityDiscourse.html

The March for Science organisers have communicated a set of ideas about diversity that are damaging to minority groups in science. The organisers made many mistakes along the way that fed into gender inequality, racism and exclusion of disabled people and other minorities.

Many supporters of the march do not support addressing issues of inclusion and accessibility. They say that diversity makes science political - as if by including minorities this is a political act (conversely meaning that White people's attendance is not political). The supporters also say that diversity causes division. They think that science is already equal and having a focus on diversity will distract from the goals of the march.

Minorities in science reject these views. We know from research evidence that there are many inequalities in science, and this impacts on science policies and practices.

My analysis shows that the way people talk about science reflects a hidden rationale for inequality. (This is what's meant by "discourse" - a way of justifying an issue using ideas that support the rights of a dominant group in society above the rights of others.)

The organisers need to be more proactive to address these negative ways of talking and thinking about diversity. What's happening further marginalises minority groups in science and makes it difficult for them to join the March for Science given this hostility.

Finally took the drone off beginner mode, though my handling is still pretty clunky.
Here is some footage of the local park/pond that we take the dogs out (and the dogs below playing)

WOOOOHOOOO!

Really annoying unavoidable stupidly long intro and tutorial though - you can't access menu during it so you get all sound effects unless you use phone media volume :/
Otherwise , the game is good!
