Operating Notes: Bands better?, kayak mobile

Have the bands seemed better for you lately? They seem to be here. Almost daily now, I’m able to work into Europe on 30m, for example. Tonight, for example, I worked PA1CC on the first call and exchanged 559 reports with him. I haven’t been really been keeping up on the space weather, but  by some accounts Solar Cycle 25 has already started. The consensus is that cycle 25 is going to be about the same as cycle 24, that is to say mediocre, but hey, anything’s better than what we’ve had for the pa...

The Call of “Not Knowing”– How Uncertainty is Still the Test of Leadership

Guest post by Randall P. White: American leaders are rising to the occasion. You just have to look a little deeper. There have been great examples of leadership in our multiple crises of the moment. Mayors, governors, even some sheriffs and police officers, are showing how it’s done. People who are otherwise obscure on the national scene are now showing up in news feeds and quenching a yearning for sanity, direction and confidence. Such as? Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms of Atlanta relatin...

What It's Like to Live With a Giant Brain Cyst

In June 2017, Michigan doctor Jennifer De Longpre published a report in the New England Journal of Medicine detailing a highly peculiar case she had come across: a 27-year-old man with a brain cyst so big that it took up half of his skull and had started to cause neurological problems, including seizures.Read more...

Whicker: Spring football is the right move for Pac-12, maybe for good

No law consigns college football to autumn, especially in a place where autumn doesn’t exist. The fallen leaves do not crackle as you walk toward the Coliseum or the Rose Bowl or Sun Devil Stadium. Octobers in L.A. do not bring sweater weather. Pac-12 football will not be played this fall, and, sure, that will leave a void. It will be no more painful than losing your 10 o’clock worship or your monthly hair appointment and not nearly as dislocating as losing your job. As the 40,000 or so empty se...

Presidents aren’t kings, stop the abuse of executive power

Dissatisfied with the pace of congressional negotiations over COVID-19 relief, President Trump took executive action over the weekend, signing orders on payroll taxes and unemployment benefits. In doing so, the president has indulged in what he and Republicans long disliked in President Obama: executive overreach. As is often the case with such instances, what’s at issue isn’t necessarily the policy matter at hand. Trump’s orders extending enhanced unemployment benefits of $400 per week and defe...

Staying Dry & Distant at the EAA Museum

With thunderstorms lined in assaulting waves on radar and pathfinding drops splattering themselves against my office window, changing my Saturday morning plans for a two-wheel ride to Rio, Wisconsin, seemed prudent. Remembering that the EAA Aviation Museum had reopened on the previous Monday, a visit there would be interesting on several levels, especially since it has been several years since I last paced my way around its winged occupants. Turning into the museum driveway, the blue signs sayi...
