Get Into the Drone Game With These Entry Level Options

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Drones are one of the latest gadgets that modern geek culture has sort of glommed onto. And what’s not to like? They’re basically the ultimate RC, and we’ve been tinkering for those for… as far as I can remember, at least. But! With the sudden burst in popularity, there’s been a glut of models with tons of different features.Some of that can be confusing. If you want something that can carry a GoPro, you’ll need to look for one with a mount. Most drones are really hard to fly, too — especially once they start getting expensive. And not every drone can be flown immediately. Many, often labeled “BNF” and “ARF” require some additional steps or parts.In the interest of getting you, dear reader, airborne, we’ve gone out and found some of the best drones you can get for under $250. All of these are ready to fly and get our hearty recommendation.DBPOWER UDI U842This machine from DBPOWER comes with a 720p camera that can stream to your phone or tablet via WiFi. Yeah can either live stream or save video for later, plus you can use your device’s accelerometer to steer the drone if you’re not a fan of the controller. This is an ideal drone for people new to the hobby as well. The UDI 842 has a “headless” mode to make control a bit easier. That essentially means that you don’t have to worry about orientation when flying, and the controller will automatically compensate for your inputs to that you don’t have to think about which way the drone is facing relative to you. A small addition, but it can be a huge help for new pilots. If you get really serious, you’ll want to fly without it so that you can get used to it (think of it as the difference between manual and automatic transmission), but if you’re only looking to get into drones as a casual hobby, this makes start-up a lot simpler.Holy Stone F181The F181 from Holy Stone is another fully-loaded quadcopter that’s ready-to-fly. It’s not quite as feature-packed as the U842, but it’s also $50 with most of the same functionality.UDI U818A The signature feature of the U818A from UDIis its VR headset compatibility. With it, you can strap on the Samsung Gear VR or Google’s Dream and feel what it’s like to fly around. Now, I suspect that it’d make just about anyone sick in no time, but if you’ve got an iron stomach, you could well have some unique experiences. The drone also comes with a spare battery to help you get a little bit more flight time.DBPOWER MJX X400WGetting into the more entry-level drones, we have the DBPOWER MJX X400W (insert obligatory “that’s a mouthful”). It’s not going to be as easy to fly or give you quite the same mileage as some of our other entries, but if you’re unsure if drones are for you, $70 is a lot easier to swallow than $160. With that cash, you’ll get everything you need to start flying. This model is ready-to-go out of the box, and it does have some ease-of-use features for newbies, namely gyro stabilization for easier pictures and video capture.Holy Stone F181WHoly Stone is a well-recognized, solid brand in the drone space. And their entry-level piece, the HSF181W could give just about any other quadcopter on this list a run for their money. It comes feature-packed with typically spendy add-ins like altitude hold, so you can easily stabilize the copter and focus on exploring the skies.Coolmade DM009The DM007 Nighthawk is the successor to one of the popular models from any company: the DM007. The product line update includes a dramatically improved motor that cuts down on power draw so you can have longer flights. Combined with the larger battery, this model from Coolmade has more flight time than any other copter on the list with up to 15 minutes. Plus you get two batteries in the box — letting you swap them out quickly to keep flying.last_img read more

Press Talk The Donalds still together

first_img Dear Mr. President,OK, OK, those first 100 days were a real mess, right? Look, I know you’re the spin master, and you love to blame absolutely everybody else for your shortcomings, but — come on, sir — it’s beginning to feel more and more like your training for this most important gig is coming from Honey Boo Boo.Let’s hope this second 100 days will be much, much more outstanding, terrific, tremendous. You can begin with fewer adjectives and more complete sentences.Now, before I get into the crux of this letter, I want to be upfront with you, Mr. President. I’m part of the mainstream media. You say you hate us, but I’m pretty sure you secretly admire us. Maybe even love us. I bet if we met, you might want to give me a kiss. No kidding. Hey once — OK, twice — I kissed a politician. How can we be so bad with kissing going on? So less name calling and more smooching. Trust me.But I digress. The point of this letter, Mr. President, is your campaign pledge to drain the swamp. Remember, Mr. President? Sure, you do. And this isn’t like all those other campaign promises you went back on, Mr. President. This was the mother of all pledges, Mr. President. The “This is the big one! You hear that, Elizabeth? I’m coming to see ya, honey!” pledge.Now, Mr. President, I know all about swamps. Heck, I’m a Gator. And frankly, the Everglades could use a good draining. Someone slipped too many dang bad-boy anacondas in there. Speaking of slipping too many bad boys into the swamp (you like that transition, Mr. President?), what, in the name of good governance, were you thinking when you gave Don Benton a job in the federal government?

ASA Welcomes EPA Registration of Enlist Duo Herbicide

first_imgThe farmer members of the American Soybean Association (ASA) welcome today’s decision by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to register Dow’s Enlist Duo herbicide for use with Enlist Duo soybeans. The new low-volatility Enlist Duo herbicide will be utilized with Enlist soybeans, when commercialized, to control resistant and difficult to manage weeds. ASA also called upon foreign markets where U.S. soybeans are exported to quickly review and approve these new biotech events so that they can be commercialized here in the United States without jeopardizing export markets and U.S. farmers can realize their benefit.“Today’s registration of Enlist Duo herbicide means that America’s soybean farmers are a step closer to having access to another integral mode of action with which they can fight yield-robbing weeds,” said ASA President and Iowa farmer Ray Gaesser. “We now look to our key export partners to approve this trait so that we can realize the full market potential of this product, without fear of jeopardizing our trading relationships with partially approved traits.”Because of the importance of export markets to U.S. soybean farmers, ASA has had long-standing policy requiring technology providers to seek and obtain approvals in key U.S. soy export markets that have import approval processes before new biotech soybean traits are openly commercialized. ASA works closely with technology companies, other members of the U.S. soy family and value chain, and the U.S. Government to facilitate timely, science-based reviews of new biotech soybean traits both domestically and abroad.last_img read more

Riot games is struggling with sexism and lack of diversity employees plan

first_imgUpdate as on 6 May, 2019: Riot Games announced early Friday that they will soon start giving new employees the option to opt-out of some mandatory arbitration requirements when they are hired. The catch – The arbitration will initially narrowly focused on a specific set of employees for a specific set of causes. Riot games employees are planning to walkout in protest of the company’s sexist culture and lack of diversity. Riot has been in the spotlight since Kotaku published a detailed report highlighting how five current and former Riot employees filed lawsuits against the company citing the sexist culture that fosters in Riot. Out of the five employees, two were women. Per Kotaku, last Thursday, Riot filed a motion to force two of those women, whose lawsuits revolved around the California Equal Pay Act, into private arbitration. In their motions, Riot’s lawyer argues that these employees waived their rights to a jury trial when they signed arbitration agreements upon their hiring. Private arbitration makes these employees less likely to win against Riot. In November last year, 20,000 Google employees along with Temps, Vendors, and Contractors walked out to protest the discrimination, racism, and sexual harassment encountered at Google’s workplace. This Walkout lead to Google ending forced arbitration for its full-time employees. Google employees are also organizing a phone drive, in a letter published on Medium, to press lawmakers to legally end forced arbitration. Per the Verge, “The employees are organizing a phone bank for May 1st and asking for people to make three calls to lawmakers — two to the caller’s senators and one to their representative — pushing for the FAIR Act, which was recently reintroduced in the House of Representatives.” Following Google, Facebook also made changes to its forced arbitration policy for sexual harassment claims Not only sexual harassment, game developers also undergo unfair treatment in terms of work conditions, job instability, and inadequate pay. In February, The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), published an open letter on Kotaku. The letter urges the video game industry workers to unionize and voice their support for better treatment within the workplace. Following this motion, Riot employees have organized to walkout in protest demanding Rio leadership to end force arbitration against the two current employees. This walkout is planned for Monday, May 6. An internal document from Riot employees as seen by Kotaku describes the demands laid out by walkout organizers a clear intention to end forced arbitration, a precise deadline (within 6 months) by which to end it a commitment to not force arbitration on the women involved in the ongoing litigations against Riot. Riot’s sexist culture and lack of diversity The investigation conducted by Kotaku last year unveiled some major flaws in Riot’s culture and in gaming companies, in general. Over 28 current and former Riot employees, spoke to Kotaku with stories that echoed of Riot’s female employees being treated unfairly and being on the receiving end of gender discrimination. An employee named Lucy told Kotaku that on thinking of hiring a woman in the leadership role she heard plenty of excuses for why her female job candidates weren’t Riot material. Some were “ladder climbers.” Others had “too much ego.” Most weren’t “gamer enough.” A few were “too punchy,” or didn’t “challenge convention”, she told Kotaku. She also shared her personal experiences facing discrimination. Often her manager would imply that her position was a direct result of her appearance. Every few months, she said, a male boss of hers would comment in public meetings about how her kids and husband must really miss her while she was at work. Women are often told they don’t fit in the company’s ‘bro culture’; an astonishing eighty percent of Riot employees are men, according to data Riot collected from employees’ driver’s licenses. “The ‘bro culture’ there is so real,” said one female source to Kotaku, who said she’d left the company due to sexism. “It’s agonizingly real. It’s like working at a giant fraternity.” Among other people Kotaku interviewed, stories were told on how women were being groomed for promotions, and doing jobs above their title and pay grade, until men were suddenly brought in to replace them. Another women told Kotaku, “how a colleague once informed her, apparently as a compliment, that she was on a list getting passed around by senior leaders detailing who they’d sleep with.” Two former employees also added that they “felt pressure to leave after making their concerns about gender discrimination known.” Many former Riot employees also refused to come forward to share their stories and refrained from participating in the walkout. For some, this was in fear of retaliation from Riot’s fanbase; Riot is the creator of the popular game League of Legends. Others told that they were restricted from talking on the record because of non-disparagement agreements they signed before leaving the company. The walkout threat spread far enough that it prompted a response from Riot’s chief diversity officer, Angela Roseboro, in the company’s private Slack over the weekend reports Waypoint. In a copy of the message obtained by Waypoint, Roseboro says“ We’re also aware there may be an upcoming walkout and recognize some Rioters are not feeling heard. We want to open up a dialogue on Monday and invite Rioters to join us for small group sessions where we can talk through your concerns, and provide as much context as we can about where we’ve landed and why. If you’re interested, please take a moment to add your name to this spreadsheet. We’re planning to keep these sessions smaller so we can have a more candid dialogue.” Riot CEO Nicolo Laurent also acknowledged the talk of a walkout in a statement “We’re proud of our colleagues for standing up for what they believe in. We always want Rioters to have the opportunity to be heard, so we’re sitting down today with Rioters to listen to their opinions and learn more about their perspectives on arbitration. We will also be discussing this topic during our biweekly all-company town hall on Thursday. Both are important forums for us to discuss our current policy and listen to Rioter feedback, which are both important parts of evaluating all of our procedures and policies, including those related to arbitration.” Tech worker union, Game workers unite, Googlers for ending forced arbitration have stood up in solidarity with Riot employees. “Forced arbitration clauses are designed to silence workers and minimize the options available to people hurt by these large corporations” “Employees at Riot Games are considering a walkout, and the organization efforts has prompted an internal response from company executives”, tweeted Coworker.org Others have also joined in support.
