Commercial Drones Approved . . . .

If one needed any more proof that the almighty $$$ is king and dictates policy in government, check out what the perpetrator of the US' largest ever environmental disaster just received:

(From NPR yesterday)

The Federal Aviation Administration says it has issued the first permit in its history for an unmanned aircraft to fly over U.S. soil. Oil company BP will use a drone from the company AeroVironment to conduct surveys in Alaska.

The first drone flights under the recently issued waiver have already taken place, the FAA says.

From the agency's news release:

"The FAA issued a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization to survey BP pipelines, roads and equipment at Prudhoe Bay, AK, the largest oilfield in the United States. AeroVironment performed the first flight for BP on June 8.

The visual depiction, (H/T Tiana) follows . . . .

condescending is a "Distraction" . . . .

From Reuters today

(Reuters) - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice pulled out of delivering the commencement speech at Rutgers University in New Jersey on Saturday, following a months-long protest by students and faculty over her role in the Iraq war. 

Rice was the face of foreign policy under President George W. Bush, a Republican, serving as national security advisor from 2001 to 2005, and later as secretary of state. She was a leading hawk in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war. 


 In her statement, Rice said her role in the festivities had become a "distraction."
  

It's all about the Karma, condescending.

What goes around eventually comes around . . . .

Ed @ TED . . . .

The "29-year-old hacker" (as barry referred to Edward Snowden last summer) made a virtual appearance at the TED Conference currently underway here in Vancouver:




After watching the full video (at the end of which he receives a standing ovation, BTW) no doubt you will agree the young man is a true hero and patriot, unlike some of the government elected "representatives" who have been disparaging his actions.


 No doubt the world would be a much better place with Edward in a government position of power rather than the assorted clowns who have had that honour in recent years . . . .



H/T to "drf" for discovering the TED talk before I did . . . .
