This week in drone news, A new round of Blue UAS has started testing, a bird that was rescued using a drone, a drug-loaded large UAS lands on a police car, and DJI's latest announcement: Good things come in 3s. Blue UAS 2.0 A new round of blue UAS testing has begun. This round includes 11 vendors, such as Sense fly, Skydio, Harris Aerial, and Wingtra. The goal of this is to further expand the U.S. government's ability to obtain sUAS that are effective in their mission goals. We reported recently about how Blue UAS are not measuring up to the standards set by other consumer aircraft, such as DJI. Hopefully, Blue UAS 2.0 will help to expand the available aircraft for the government. https://www.diu.mil/latest/new-streamlined-option-for-dod-organizations-to-access-UAS Bird rescued by drone! This took place in Peru, a bird was tangled in a string that was attached to an electrical wire. Using a Mavic Mini or Mini 2, police attached a razor blade and cut the string. The bird fell onto a nearby roof where it was captured and taken to a wildlife rehab center. This goes to show there are infinite uses for drones! https://www.yahoo.com/now/pigeon-stuck-high-voltage-cable-160619176.html Drug-loaded drone lands on police car A man in Georgia is facing charges after being found near a prison. The story gets more interesting when police noticed a drone that came and landed on top of the investigating deputy's patrol car. This drone was loaded with drugs, cellphones, and other contraband. Police say the man was attempting to make a contraband drop at the prison. Looks to be a DJI Matrice 600 https://www.wrdw.com/2021/10/11/man-charged-after-contraband-carrying-drone-lands-deputys-patrol-car/ DJI's Good things come in 3s Based on the image included in the post DroneXL is reporting that the likely release of products from DJI will be A DJI Osmo on October 20th The DJI Action 2 on October 27th The Mavic 3 on November 5th No more info as of now, but we'll keep you posted! https://dronexl.co/2021/10/12/mavic-3-release-date-dji/
How we can help those struggling with drug addictions end the cycle of trauma for good? Christina Dent is the Founder and President of End It For Good, a nonprofit advocating a health-centered approach to drugs and addiction rather than a criminal justice approach. Christina lives in Mississippi and changed her own mind about the best way to handle drugs after she became a foster parent. She's an unlikely advocate for changing our drug laws, as a conservative Christian with a degree in the Bible, who's never used an illegal drug. But she's convinced that changing our approach to drugs can save lives, strengthen families, and make our communities safer. She founded End It For Good several years ago to provide education and an invitation for more people to change their minds too. Listen as we explore the cause and long term effect of criminalizing drug addiction along with solutions to help people struggling with drug addiction get the help they need in a proactive and compassionate way. What We Discuss with Christina Dent in This Episode What lead a conservative Christian to become an advocate for people with drug addiction The criminalization of drug addiction The root cause of the overdose crisis How our current approach to drug addiction is impacting families How Portugal cut their injection drug use in half and created one-third less addiction The benefits of different regulatory models Legalizing marijuana and other drugs How End It For Good educates and advocates for people with drug addiction How to learn more so you can make an informed decision Episode Show Notes: https://tinyurl.com/463ppr2a

LLN (10/13/21) – Drug test facilities are the latest part of the trucking world affected by both supply chain issues and problems filling vacant jobs. Also, as more and more truckers file for their own authority, certain aspects of the system are feeling the effects – and even slowing down under the strain. And that includes IRP and IFTA. We'll discuss some of the issues involved. And the last year-and-a-half has been full of surprises – most of them unpleasant. So many dominoes have fallen that Dean Croke at the folks at DAT have started calling our new reality the “Domino Economy.” He'll tell us which dominoes are likely to fall next. 0:00 – Newscast. 10:14 – IFTA, IRP and authority filings. 25:07 – The Domino Economy. 40:03 – Supply chain problems; phishing scams.

Reformer Ferrell Fellows joins the Reformers Collective podcast with Becky Hennesy to discuss how she has a goal to take dominion over parts of the Dallas (Texas) area one neighborhood block at a time. While "taking dominion" is not a new concept among many in Charismatic believer circle, it's HOW she's doing it that grabbed Becky's attention. With a family business background in real estate and now a trained professional herself, Ferrell heard God tell her one day to start buying up houses in tough neighborhoods. Drug houses. Trap houses. Sex trafficking houses.That's literally and physically "taking dominion" over places where spiritual darkness has sunk its deadly claws in the lives of people for decades in the inner city. This episode unpacks how Ferrell is using her gifts and leverage as a businesswoman to spark true transformation and reformation in her home city of Dallas.

While at CPN, look for additional Reformers Collective resources such as Becky's blog articles on the topic of reformation.The clarion call is simple for the entire Reformers Collective movement. Becky says "it's time to bring godly solutions to earthly problems!"

I'm wrapping it all up. This whole series came about as a way to dig into the research of work addiction as I began stepping back into an employed role. So much of what I talk about on this podcast has roots grounded in what's happening in my own life and it's been fun digging in. So first, I shared all about definitions and where work addiction starts. Then I moved into the actual research that has been done on work addiction and workaholics. It was part three however that has really stuck with me. The pause. Many of you have reached out and said that you can't take the pause, but if you don't you may find yourself in deeper waters than you can get yourself out of. You NEED to pause. Next, I chatted all about re-entry because that's where I'm at right now. Re-entry into the workforce with new strategies and a clear understanding of myself and my tendencies. This part is very important. Last, we discussed workaholic leadership and how it impacts the work culture as a whole. Workaholic leaders beget workaholic staff which begets a culture of burnout that is really hard to turn around. Want to know where to go from here? Listen in and learn what your next steps are for dealing with your work addiction and living a healthier work life. “We are human, we are not super Demi-god robots who can work all the time.” Dr. Errin Weisman In this episode: [01:37] I'm starting off with a recap of the previous 5 episodes and then one final thought to finish the series. [02:00] In part 1, I talk about how work addiction starts. [02:14] In part 2, I discuss the fun research I did. [02:30] The pause in part 3 has really stuck with me. [06:40] I talked about reentry in part 4. [06:50] In part 5, I discussed workaholic leadership and what a workaholic and burned-out environment looks like at work. [07:21] Listen as I share where to go from here. [07:49] My mantra, the pace of forward has really helped me. [09:55] Thank you for listening!

With an estimated 250,000 people killed in 15 years, the Mexican drug war is the most violent conflict in the Western world. It shows no sign of abating. In Mexican Drug Violence: Hybrid Warfare, Predatory Capitalism and the Logic of Cruelty (2020), Dr Teun A. Voeten analyzes the dynamics of the violence. He argues it is a new type of war called hybrid warfare: multidimensional, elusive and unpredictable, fought at different levels, with different intensities with multiple goals. The war ISIS has declared against the West is another example of hybrid warfare. Voeten interprets drug cartels as ultra-capitalist predatory corporations thriving in a neoliberal, globalized economy. They use similar branding and marketing strategies as legitimate business. He also looks at the anthropological, individual level and explains how people can become killers. Voeten compares Mexican sicarios, West African child soldiers and Western jihadis and sees the same logic of cruelty that facilitates perpetrating 'inhumane' acts that are in fact very human. Geert Slabbekoorn works as an analyst in the field of public security. In addition he has published on different aspects of dark web drug trade in Belgium.

Since their discovery in the 1970s, artemisinin-based drugs have become the mainstay of treatment for malaria caused by the Plasmodium falciparum parasite. Researchers have identified artemisinin-resistant malaria parasites in Southeast Asia since the early 2000s, but now, there is evidence of resistance in Rwanda and Uganda. Dr Betty Balikagala of Juntendo University tells us how this resistance developed and what it means for managing malaria in Africa, which carries the greatest burden of malaria cases and deaths worldwide. We hear from some of the scientists from COVID Moonshot, a non-profit, open-science consortium which has just received key funding to develop affordable antivirals to stop SARS-CoV-2 in its tracks. Also on the programme, Dr Rakesh Ghosh from the University of California, San Francisco tells us how air pollution is contributing to 6 million preterm births globally each year, and Dr Catherine Nakalembe of the University of Maryland and Africa Lead for NASA Harvest returns to the programme as NASA/USGS launches Landsat 9. Also In the past 18 months we have heard lots about the human immune system, as we all learn about how our bodies fight off Covid-19 and how the vaccine helps protect us. But this got listener John, in Alberta, Canada, thinking about how trees and plants respond to diseases and threats. Do they have immune systems and if so, how do they work? Do they have memories that mean they can remember diseases or stressful events 5 months, or 5 years down the line, to be better prepared if they encounter the same threats again? Presenter Marnie Chesterton sets out to investigate the inner workings of plants and trees, discovering that plants not only have a sophisticated immune system, but that they can use that immune system to warn their neighbours of an attack. Some researchers are also investigating how we can help plants, especially crops, have better immune systems – whether that's by vaccination or by editing their genes to make their immune systems more efficient. But some plants, like trees, live for a really long time. How long can they remember any attacks for? Can they pass any of those memories on to their offspring? Crowdscience visits one experimental forest where they are simulating the future CO2 levels of 2050 to understand how trees will react to climate change.

The Mirador Basin Project is the largest multi-disciplinary research program in the history of Guatemala, with studies being conducted in archaeology, geology, geo-morphology, hydrology, and the biological disciplines concerning the flora and fauna of the basin.As the last large tract of rainforest remaining in Central America, it is crucial to conserve the Mirador-Calakmul Basin to the fullest extent possible, and in a manner that is sustainable, economically viable and inclusive to the local communities. Unfortunately, the Maya Biosphere Reserve has been severely threatened by roads (logging and petroleum), massive deforestation, poaching, and looting of priceless archaeological artifacts. Drug trafficking, large scale burning, and wholesale deforestation have also brought a myriad of problems to the region, devastating the ecosystem, fragmenting the tropical forest, and negatively affecting the lives of the people of Petén.Richard Hansen is a specialist on the ancient Maya civilization and directs the Mirador Basin Project, which investigates a circumscribed geological and cultural area known as the Mirador Basin in the northern Petén, Guatemala. He has previously held positions at the University of California, Los Angeles and Idaho State University. He is also the founder and president of the Foundation for Anthropological Research and Environmental Studies (FARES). His work has been featured in 36 film documentaries and was the principal consultant for the movie Apocalypto (Mel Gibson) (Hansen 2012a), CBS Survivor Guatemala, and National Geographic's The Story of God with Morgan Freeman.He was also awarded the Orden de la Monja Blanca by the Guatemalan Ministry of Defense in 2019. He was named as "one of the 24 individuals that changed Latin America and his work has been an important contribution to the understanding of the development of Maya civilization.

Right now, there's a lot of opinions and discrepancies surrounding the idea of a COVID-19 booster shot. In fact, the FDA's approval varies slightly from the CDC recommendations. It's no wonder that there are a multitude of varying ideas on this topic. On today's show, we're going behind the scenes of the FDA booster approval and discussing the pertinent data on mRNA studies, the pharmaceutical industry at large, and the COVID-19 vaccine.
