I truly hope that this man gets what he has coming to him...I truly hope that the jury will understand what this pig has put this young child through. He took a innocent childs youth away and there is no worse crime other than murder. I would hope that this man would get life so that he can look over his shoulder everyday in prison...Even better I would hope a fellow prisoner would have a chat with him...ART ESVER U WILL ROT IN HELL OR BETTER YET IN PRISON...GOOD LUCK IN THERE...You know how prisoners love child molesters ;) comment by dloca23 on Jury gets case against San Leandro man charged with raping 9-year-old girl Jul 8, 2014 11:28 PM [GMT]

Another idea. The drone has to publish its GPS co-ordinates on the web while it is being operated. So, if I'm John Q Public, I can go to a summary website and see all the drones operating in my area. comment by usgoosht on U.S. moves toward opening skies for commercial drones Jul 6, 2014 5:30 PM [GMT]
Of course, this only applies if the drone uses cameras. If it is completely GPS controlled, then the privacy concern goes away. They are still noisy nuisances, but they don't invade privacy.

There should be noise requirements on drones. After 10 feet, 3 meters, they should be less than 80 decibels. comment by usgoosht on U.S. moves toward opening skies for commercial drones Jul 6, 2014 5:28 PM [GMT]
Everyone who uses a drone in public should be required to have a public webcam showing them using the drone. That is, if they use a drone, they should be subject to public surveillance over the web while using the drone.

And companies that deploy drones should be required to have public webcams of their senior executives publicly available on the web. So, for instance if Jeff Bezos wants Amazon to use drones for delivery, he is personally covered by a webcam, online and available for public viewing. Just as his company will be able to view anyone anywhere, anyone anywhere will be able to view him. What's that? He has privacy concerns? Join the club.

If you want to invade other people's privacy, you pay with your own privacy. comment by usgoosht on U.S. moves toward opening skies for commercial drones Jul 6, 2014 5:23 PM [GMT]
Why are people still doing air traffic control? Computers could do it without errors forever. Oh, sure, there can be a standby controller for unusual situations, but human air traffic controllers are obsolete.

The people on the planes are already trusting their lives to computers, since modern airliners are mostly computer controlled. It isn't the computers that fail in most airline crashes, but mechanical components and pilots. comment by usgoosht on Airplanes nearly collide over Houston in second near-miss in two months Jul 6, 2014 5:13 PM [GMT]
They can afford more. At least 100 Euros. Make work rewarding! comment by usgoosht on German Parliament Advances a National Minimum Wage Jul 4, 2014 03:43 AM [GMT]
$9 just isn't enough. If they want to end poverty, they need to raise the minimum wage to at least $100 and as much as $500. *That's* the kind of wage that will end poverty. Imagine if every worker was paid like the CEO. End of poverty.

This also points out how greatly businesses are probably contravening open source licenses. If they have no control of open source in their business, they have no control of the use of open source code in their business. Is open source code with a GPL compatible license being incorporated into proprietary apps? Surely. All it would take is one disgruntled employee to spill the beans, and this would be very costly. comment by usgoosht on Hating On Open Source, A Perennial Business Development Strategy Jul 2, 2014 5:21 PM [GMT]
The Fed needs to control the money supply, and to do that they need to make all loans 100% reserved. Then any new money in the system will only come from the Fed, and they can prevent bubbles by aligning money creation with economic output. As the system is designed now, if someone comes up with a scheme that allows a positive feedback system to develop at the set interest rate, the Fed is unaware because the banks create all the money that is used to pump the scheme. Insanity! comment by usgoosht on Yellen: Fed could raise rates to pop bubbles Jul 2, 2014 5:16 PM [GMT]
