Drone law goes down, and now hobbyists don’t have to register


Buying a drone for fun just got a little less complicated. 

A court ruling has declared that civilians c no longer need to register their non-commercial drones with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). 

On Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in favor of drone user John Taylor, who filed an initial petition challenging the drone registration rule back in 2015, just days after the FAA’s drone registry went live in December of that year. 

The rule required drone hobbyists to pay a $ 5 fee to register their drone with the FAA’s website.  Read more…

Trump ‘knows things’ others don’t about Russian hacking

If Russian hackers are fiddling around with America’s electricity grid, then that would be extremely alarming. It is also what was reported by the Washington Post on the heels of the Obama Administration announcing sanctions against Russia for interfering in a US election.

The original headline read, “Russian hackers penetrated U.S. electricity grid through a utility in Vermont, U.S. officials say.” The Washington Post reported, “A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials.”

Why we do (and don’t) want Google to make its own smartphone

Google is reportedly preparing to start designing and manufacturing its own smartphone, according to a new report. While some giddily clap at the idea of an Android smartphone straight from the mothership, it’s actually not a great idea. Nexus Starting (and possibly ending) with HTC, Google asked its hardware partners to build devices for it. Those devices, dubbed ‘Nexus’ (even if they had additional branding) were essentially top-end smartphones that (mostly) sold for a pretty deep discount. Nexus handsets are also reference devices.

Q&A: what does this poem mean? I dont understand it at all and I have to analyze it for school?

Question by Maddy: what does this poem mean? I dont understand it at all and I have to analyze it for school?
James Joyce

Gaunt in gloom,
The pale stars their torches,
Enshrouded, wave.
Ghostfires from heaven’s far verges faint illume,
Arches on soaring arches,
Night’s sindark nave.

The lost hosts awaken
To service till
In moonless gloom each lapses muted, dim,
Raised when she has and shaken
Her thurible.

And long and loud,
To night’s nave upsoaring,
A starknell tolls
As the bleak incense surges, cloud on cloud,
Voidward from the adoring
Waste of souls.

Thank You!!! I’m not trying to cheat, I just do not understand it at all!! Just steer me towards the right track…
