Not long after the shoot-down, Iran asked the United Nations Security Council to censure the United States for its “criminal act” against Iran Air Flight 655. Vice President George H.W. Bush, who was running to succeed Ronald Reagan as president, said on the campaign trail, “I will never apologize for the United States—I don’t care what the facts are.”

ARGUS is an advanced camera system that uses hundreds of cellphone cameras in a mosaic to video and auto-track every moving object within a 36 square mile area. ARGUS is a form of Wide Area Persistent Surveillance that allows for one camera to provide such detailed video that users can collect “pattern-of-life” data and track individual people inside the footage anywhere within the field of regard. This is accomplished by utilizing air assets (manned aircraft, drones, blimps, aerostats) to persistently loiter and record video of an area 36 square miles in diameter with enough detail to track individual pedestrians, vehicles or other objects of interest as long as the air asset remains circling above.

Episode 22: Compromise with Mike Monteiro — The Nudge

One of the hardest things in design is knowing the right time to compromise, if there ever is one. The very idea of compromise might send some precious designers into fits.

Josh and Ross investigate that idea with Mike which leads into discussion of all sorts of design problems.

Ok so every day I take two of these. One in the morning, one in the evening. From what I can tell, a twice-a-day dose is pretty standard for this medication (it’s for nerve pain). I wonder why, that being the case, they don’t mark the blister packs with “morning” and “evening”?
That seems weird to me.

A better option may be to keep all these murals and artworks and place them by a plaque that would remind future generations of the pitfalls they face when they let celebrity, money, seniority or friendship stand in the way of calmly and coldly ensuring that our children get the benefit of any doubt before anyone else. That’s not a call for believing every allegation a child makes, it is a call to put ourselves on red alert when any allegation is made.
Why do we want to tear down Rolf Harris’ artworks?
