Should Some Smart Munitions be Classified as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAVs?


More drones ….cool….we can’t manage the ones we have now.

There was one covering the St. Patrick’s Day Parade – I know – I marched in it.  It was about 30′ off the ground, hovering right over the center line on Delaware Avenue, near North. Presumeably filming.

Now, I would be the last person to complain about filming a parade, whether the marchers in it, or the on-lookers watching.  Maybe a better view for people at home who could not make it.  However what would happen if that drone crashed and took out someone’s eye, or caused other serious injury?  Certainly possible given all the amateurs out there.  Do you think the malefactor would step forward and ask to be arrested for assault by drone, or give his name, address and insurance carrier so he could be sued for the injuries?  I think not. We’d have no idea who owned it. Or operated it. Or whether it was insured.

Suppose it was a television station drone.  Would all the area televisions be entitled to have one?  What about amateurs?  Should there be a limit as to how many?  Costs may have limited media helicopters, but not so drones.  They are cheap enough for everyone and anyone to have them.  Will there be any limits? Financial responsibility?  Suppose the drones are armed – will the Second Amendment be extended to cover the right of citizens in a drone militia to bear arms, errh..drones?

Kraft, Heinz to Merge, Forming Food Giant

Heintz Kraft

H.J. Heinz Co. is buying Kraft Foods, creating one of the largest food and beverage companies in the world with annual revenue of about US$28 billion.

The Kraft Heinz Co. will own brands such as Kraft, Heinz, Oscar Mayer, Ore-Ida and other brands. Eight of those brands have annual sales of US$1 billion or more and five others log sales between US$500 million and US$1 billion every year.

The deal to bring together the two companies, each more than a century old, was engineered by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and Brazilian investment firm 3G Capital. The two will invest another US$10 billion in the new company.

The deal still needs a nod from federal regulators as well as shareholders of Kraft Foods Group Inc., but the boards of both companies unanimously approved it. The planned closing is set for the second half of the year.

Annual cost savings estimated to be $1.5 billion are expected to be booked by the end of 2017.

Mychajliw Won’t Run For County Executive


County comptroller Stefan Mychajliw says he will not run for county executive.

County Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw Jr. said Wednesday he will not run for county executive this year and will instead offer “1,000 percent” support to fellow Republican Christopher L. Jacobs for the post.

Mychajliw, who was considered with Jacobs one of two top contenders to challenge Democratic incumbent Mark C. Poloncarz this year, said family considerations – including his recent engagement – loomed foremost in his decision.

But he also said it is becoming increasingly clear that Jacobs – the county clerk – remains the choice of a wide spectrum of party leaders, and that he was urged to reach his own decision “sooner rather than later.”

Lies, Damned Lies and State Run Media (BN) Parrots Corruption Enabling Claims

By: Mike Madigan

Anyone with a quarter of a brain knows a bold faced lie when they hear it. Credible reporting must not involve parroting such lies without placing them in context of the facts and truth. Sadly such credibility was lost long ago by the Corrupted Buffalo News.

On January 28th the Buffalo News led the article regarding Sheldon Silver’s suspension from his law firm with a quote from the alleged corrupted law firm that stated:

“Weitz & Luxenberg president Perry Weitz said the firm was “shocked” to learn about the accusations against Silver.

“We have asked Mr. Silver to take a leave of absence until these allegations are resolved,”

Silver’s scheme allegedly greatly enriched the law firm using NY State taxpayer money – an outrage that if proven must result in serious consequence against that firm.

Germanwings Flight Crashes in French Alps; 150 Feared Dead

An helicopter takes off at Seyne les Alpes, French Alps, March 24, 2015. A Germanwings passenger jet carrying at least 150 people crashed in a remote section of the French Alps, sounding like an avalanche as it scattered pulverized debris across the mountain.

The news of Tuesday’s crash of a Germanwings plane destined for Düsseldorf reverberated throughout the airport — and spread quickly among arriving passengers.

“I just landed and thought about the fact that this could have happened to me as well,” Güzel Kocaman, from Solingen, Germany, told Yahoo News. “I had thought about going to Spain for vacation.

Gaby Kothe said she learned about the crash after upon her arrival. “My daughter tried calling me several times while I was on the plane,” Kothe said. “She had heard that some plane to Düsseldorf had crashed.

“There is nothing you can do about it,” Christel Ahmed, a former airline employee who just traveled from Antalya to Düsseldorf, said. “These things just happen sometimes.

Meanwhile, officials at Düsseldorf Airport quickly assembled a crisis squad. Chaplains with blue vests indicating they are part of a “care team” fanned out in search of relatives of passengers that were on Germanwing the plane, ushering them to private rooms. 

Florian Gränzdörffer, spokesman of Germanwings“ holding company Lufthansa, said the fire department, airport staff and Germanwings employees were working together.

“The staff is specifically qualified for this kind of work,” Gränzdörffer said. “However, everyone is very concerned. There were a lot of people on board of that airplane who had confided in us.

Citizens Of Amherst Wake Up!


The people of Amherst are sheep whose lives and taxes are controlled by three boards in our local government: the Town Board, the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

As you walk around town you will see the people who sit on these Boards.  They’ll engage you in conversation as they stab you in the back for personal gain.

They must be stopped.  How?  Ignore their decisions, stand your ground, protect your property before they take it from you through some legal loophole, let the town take you to court.  When enough people get hustled by the Planning Board, the word spreads.  Amherst is well on its way of becoming known as the Developers Haven where they can come and get what they want without any problems.

All citizens must stop and look at their privacy which is being invaded by police machines, drones, cameras, etc.

Mountie in ‘Most Canadian Photo Ever’ Humbled by Reaction to Image

Oh, we do love our Canadian neighbors, eh?

When Royal Canadian Mounted Police Cpl. Shaun Begg got the opportunity to play hockey on a rink high up in the Purcell Mountains in British Columbia, he jumped at the chance.

And because Begg, 40, is proud of being a member of the RCMP, he got permission to take his iconic uniform with him. Begg told ABC News he’d hoped to get a photo for his screen saver or for the wall of his office at the RCMP’s detachment in Kaslo, a small, picturesque village in B.C.

What he got was a quintessentially Canadian image that went viral and is now being dubbed the “most Canadian photo ever.”
