Christian Stewart, a freshman at Harvard-Westlake Upper School in Studio City, came up with the best science project ever this year.
It's called "Low-Cost Autonomous Civilian Unmanned Aerial Systems," and it's essentially an affordable drone that your average dude would be able use for daily spying purposes. All at the touch of an iPhone remote!
So impressive was Stewart's work, that
it won both...
Someone needs to pull aside Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Brian Cummings and give him a few pointers on talking to the press... or maybe he needs a refresher course in owning up to things.
When L.A. Weekly approached Cummings last week and asked why firefighters were suffering from low morale, he ignored the question and cited unnamed "reports" that show there's a low morale epidemic spreading far and wide in the United States.
"There are morale issues across the country," Cummings said.
On a day when the L.A. Fire Department's reported media blackout started a firestorm of debate, the department's information pipeline began trickling with data again.
This morning the department put out alerts about a fire in the 2300 block of South Broadway near downtown and a possible electrical incident in the 1000 Block of West Washington Boulevard that saw a local school evacuated as a precaution.
Has there been a change of heart?
