    As some San Fernando Valley streets go dark because of copper thieves targeting municipal light poles, a new pilot program aims to safeguard the fixtures and prevent costly repairs. In order to steal the valuable copper wire, thieves break into city-owned electrical boxes and rip the wires out. This causes a backlog of street light repairs that can sometimes be delayed by months, city officials told KCBS-TV Channel 2. The office of Los Angeles Councilmember John Lee is helping to fund a $60,000 pilot program for the Bureau of Street Lighting to explore options for protecting the electrical boxes. “Copper wire theft is an issue that is affecting residents throughout the city, but Council District 12 is one of the parts of Los Angeles which has been most affected by the theft,” said Roger Quintanilla, a spokesperson for Lee, whose district covers much of the Valley. California Historic lamps are being stolen off an L.A. bridge. The city is removing the rest for safekeeping The city plans to remove all the remaining bronze streetlights for safekeeping after thefts...

    This is the moment a drone pilot fitted a lightbulb using a quadcopter and a tiny action camera. For the stunt, set up by drone manufacturer DJI, a lightbulb was attached to a wine cork which had been stuck to the top of the aircraft.  A small action camera was attached to the rear of the drone - as they are not fitted with cameras showing the top of the device. The drone pilot fitted the lightbulb to the top of his machine using a wine cork and balanced that weight with a Insta360 Go2 action camera attached to the rear. The operator needed the camera to monitor the exact position of the bulb in comparison with the fitting When approaching the target, the operator had to be careful that the drone's rotors did not hit the light fitting which would send the device plummeting to the ground, possibly shattering a blade In the footage, the drone is piloted through a living room, dodging furniture before climbing towards the light fitting.  The Insta360 action camera on the back of the...
    Drazen_ | E+ | Getty Images Swedish energy firm Vattenfall has been given a permit to build a project in the Netherlands that plans to combine solar power with farming, in the latest example of how renewables and agriculture can potentially dovetail with one another.  In a statement earlier this week Annemarie Schouten, Vattenfall's head of solar development for the Netherlands, explained how the project would "alternate rows of panels with strips where various crops are grown for organic farming." The pilot, known as Symbizon, is slated to last four years and be located in Almere, to the east of Amsterdam. Funding has come from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. Schouten said that double-sided solar panels would be used in order to ensure "sufficient light yield." Such a setup would also enable the panels to "catch the reflected light from the soil, the crops and the adjacent rows and use it to produce solar energy." While plans have taken a step forward, Vattenfall has yet to confirm if the project will actually progress. A decision on this is expected...

    By Jazmin Goodwin | CNN Business Joe Biden addressed the nation for the first time as president-elect on Saturday. But it was what followed that had the crowd and even himself surprised. A light show in Wilmington, Delaware, illuminated the night sky spelling out “Biden,” “46” and “USA.”‘ It even included a map of the United States. It wasn’t just your traditional fireworks at work: The technology that made it possible included a swarm of drones equipped with special lights. It’s been used at Disney theme park shows for years and showcased at other big-ticket events like the Super Bowl and the Olympics. The tech behind it all The drone light shows are powered by multiple LED-lit drones. They swirl through the sky in a choregraphed dance at the control of a computer and a human “pilot,” and they’re pre-programmed to show specific words, colors and images. The drones are usually quadcopters — a drone with four rotors and often complement firework displays. But the power isn’t in the drones; it’s packed inside the software. Each drone uses a GPS...

    TUMWATER, Wash. (AP) — A person is in jail after a Washington State Patrol aircraft was hit with a laser light over Tumwater. KING-TV reports the aircraft was helping locate an elderly man Thursday who had wandered away from caregivers when it happened. That man was found Friday morning, according to Tumwater police. It’s the latest incident of a dangerous practice that can have serious consequences, officials said. Lasers can blind a pilot temporarily, making them unable to see their instruments, and even lead to permanent eye damage. Disrupting a pilot is considered a serious threat to air safety. It’s a felony in Washington and violators can also be fined $11,000 per incident by the Federal Aviation Administration. WSP spokesperson Trooper Darren Wright said this was the sixth incident in a month involving the patrol’s aircraft. Like Thursday night, most of the incidents involving WSP aircraft have resulted in an arrest. Planes landing at Sea-Tac International Airport have also been hit with lasers while on final approach over the years. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may...

    Screenshot via YouTube. On Wednesday, JetBlue rolled out — literally — a new weapon in their efforts to fight the coronavirus on their airplanes: a robot that rolls down the aisles, shining a disinfecting ultraviolet light across the seats, floors, and other surfaces. The 90-day pilot program started this week in JetBlue planes landing at JFK airport in New York and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood airport in South Florida. In a YouTube video demonstrating the robot, JetBlue announced they had entered into a partnership with Honeywell to pilot a “UV Cabin System” robot. The robot is in addition to other cleaning and sanitizing procedures JetBlue is conducting on their aircraft. In about 10 minutes, the robot rolls down the aisles, sweeping long metal arms over the seats and shining UV-C light. Clinical studies have shown ultraviolet light to be effective in “significantly reducing certain viruses and bacteria, including SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, when properly used at certain levels,” according to NBC New York. While ultraviolet light, specifically the short-wave UV-C type, has been shown to have a germicidal effect, it also poses potential...
    (CNN)It will be as easy as brushing your teeth or shaving, and as long as future studies support it, it just might save your eyesight.A few minutes of looking into a deep red light could have a dramatic effect on preventing eyesight decline as we age, according to a new study published this week in The Journals of Gerontology.If the results are replicated in future studies, and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, the light could augur a new era in which millions of people have access to the easy home-based therapy. It would give them a new layer of protection against the natural aging processes that steal our eyes' sensitivity to light and ability to distinguish colors."You don't need to use it for very long to start getting a strong result," said lead author Glen Jeffery, a professor of neuroscience at University College London's Institute of Ophthalmology.The science works, Jeffery said, because the light stimulates the health of mitochondria, which are like batteries in our cells.
