Three Bullet Points on the Modernization of American Aviation

Like Bryan Stow, Another Dodger Stadium Fight Leaves Fan Critically Injured


Eerily similar to the assault that Bryan Stow sustained on the evening of the 2011 Dodgers Opening Day game, this past Friday night October 9, 2015, yet another opposing team's fan was brutally beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium. Witnesses said the ordeal began in the Dodger parking lot at around 10:30 PM. One man, identified as a Mets fan, was punched in the head so hard by a Dodgers fan, he fell, hit the ground and began bleeding profusely -almost in identical fashion and Bryan Stow. According to witness Maria Cerecer, it was other Dodgers fans who were first to the injured man's aid, "[T]here was a gentleman on the floor and [he] was bleeding profusely from the head. We got free rally towels that night, so they were holding the rally towels to his head." Like Bryan, the victim is now in critical but stable condition at an USC County Hospital.

Berkeley Balcony Collapse: News Round-up for July 20, 2015

"It's hard to imagine the pain inflicted on these wonderful young students and the massive grief to moms and dads, brothers and sisters, and friends. The pain is even worse when you realize that this was totally preventable. This company has had to pay out millions of dollars for bad balconies causing harm to innocent people. One would think that any company with integrity, once they knew of a problem, would immediately do something about it. If it weren't fixing the balconies, then at least making them inaccessible. Our law firm, Girardi & Keese, is continuing to investigate every possible aspect of this terrible tragedy and we will continue to update the public." - Attorney Tom Girardi

Are We Ready For the World of Self-Driving Cars?

Five short years. That's the prediction Alex Davies reports about Google's self-driving car. In his Wired article, Davies says that Google plans to eliminate human driving in five years - no small feat, he admits, but one that suits the tech giant's ambition and penchant for embarking on daring projects that don't necessarily resemble Google's core search business. (For years, Google has sponsored the Lunar X Prize, as one example, in a privately funded effort to send a robotic spacecraft to the moon.)

Small-Plane Pilot Risks It All - And Loses - For a Selfie

USA Today's Mara Montalbano calls it "death by selfie," but there's nothing cute about what happened to 29-year-old Amritpal Singh and his passenger, who lost their lives when their Cessna 150 - the fifth most produced civilian plane ever, according to Wikipedia - went down in a field. The National Transportation Safety Board believes the evidence suggests the pilot was taking selfies on his smart phone shortly before the plane crashed.
