Crime Fighting Blimp

Crime Fighting Blimp - A proposed unmanned floating airship surveillance system is being hailed by city officials in Ogden, Utah as one way to fight crime in its neighborhoods.

"We believe it will be a deterrent to crime when it is out and about and will help us solve crimes more quickly when they do occur," Ogden City Mayor Matthew Godfrey told Reuters.

The airship entails military technology now available to local law enforcement, he said.

Godfrey floated the idea of a dirigible in the skies above Ogden for his city council members last week. The council is expected to vote on the measure in coming weeks.

He says the cost of the blimp is being negotiated but said it is more "cost effective" to operate than helicopters or fixed winged aircraft.

"We anticipate using it mainly at night. The cameras have incredible night vision to see with tremendous clarity daytime and nighttime. It will be used like a patrol car. It will be used to go and check things out and keep things safe," said Godfrey.

One person will be able to operate the system but Godfrey says it will also function on its own with programing directives.

Famous Malpractice Cases

Famous Malpractice Cases - Millions of people see doctors every year, so it's no wonder mistakes are made. Doctors are human too. The problem is, it opens the way for thousands of malpractice cases every year.

Most cases we don't hear about, except for those horrendous ones that cause serious distress or loss of life. Malpractice cases can range from something simple like the wrong dose of medication. Others can be serious mistakes made in complicated surgeries resulting in deaths.

One of the biggest case of malpractice was the doctor of Michael Jackson. Not only was the doctor prescribing drugs to his patient he shouldn't be getting, but on the night of his death, he did more to conceal the fact than to save the life of his patient.

Building Muscle for Long-Term Fitness

Building Muscle for Long-Term Fitness - Building muscle is great for fitness. Most people ignore the benefits of muscle building and simply work on their cardio fitness. Especially women. Women think they will get big, bulky muscles if they do weight training but this is simply not true. Females lack high amounts of the male growth hormone testosterone making it impossible for them to pack on a lot of muscle.

Men on the other hand strive to build muscle but for the wrong reasons. They want to build muscles for aesthetic purposes whereas there are many other benefits.

Building Muscle for Long-Term Fitness

One such benefit is fat burning. The reason men need more calories a day to maintain their weight is because they have more muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is because muscle needs more calories to maintain that fat does.

The second benefit is a healthy body in the long term. Muscle will support bones and joints protecting you from injury during strenuous exercise.

Thirdly, it allows you to keep the weight off in the long-term. As stated above, because muscles take more calories to maintain for the body, it's easier to keep the weight off.

California and Superstorm

California and Superstorm - California is no stranger to natural disasters with earthquakes a common occurence. But some scientists are predicting something never seen before in california. A super-storm.

Scientists are predicting the once in two hundred year super-storm to hit California within the next 50 years. Scientists have come together to try and predict what kind of damage a super storm like this can do and what precautions need to be put in place.

A super storm like this could cause major flooding in California. Flooding like the ones seen in Queensland, Australia at the moment. Although nothing can be done to completely protect the state, there are ways the water can be handled.

Because every storm is different, no amount of computer modeling and predictions can help. At best the scientists can make assumptions and guesses.
