Police can change how they answer calls to reduce deadly outcomes.

When I shot and directed video interviews I would remind the interviewee to repeat the question before answering, this technique helped prevent yes or no answers that would then force the editor to use the question being asked by the interviewer even when they did not want to hear the interviewer's voice.

I am beginning to think the repeat the question technique might reduce violent calls when police respond to a police dispatcher's call. When the police dispatcher sends out a call that there is a belligerent pregnant bi-polar woman wielding a 3 inch knife, usually the police closest to the incident will respond that they can take "the call".

But is it enough to simply acknowledge "the call"? What if the police officer was required to REPEAT the call verbatim from the dispatcher. The dispatcher calls out a report of a belligerent bi-polar pregnant woman wielding a 3 inch knife. I believe the officer taking the call should respond "Car 123 can respond to the report of a belligerent bi-polar woman wielding a 3 inch knife". The repeating of the dispatcher's call gives the police officer a chance to hear themselves state the situation and may give them a better sense on how to handle the call.

I believe the police officers or enforcement officers who took the following call may have handled the result in a more intelligent way, such as using either a stun gun or an 18 inch to 36 inch baton to separate the woman from her knife, if they had been required to repeat back to the dispatcher what they had heard from the dispatcher. 

Instead we have execution by gun from a very safe distance.  My apologies, the video I linked to is no longer available.

Why Isn't the US building a fresh water pipeline from the midwest to drought plagued areas in the U.S.?

Why isn't the U.S. building a fresh water pipeline from the over flooded, overwintered midwest and east coast to the more frequently drought stricken areas of the U.S.? I'm not talking free water, I'm talking creating a revenue stream for the midwest and east coast in which excess fresh water run off is diverted to other parts of the U.S. and the midwest and east coast is paid.

The fresh water pipeline could even help prevent flooding along the Mississippi River. The U.S has been so intent on ramping up oil production in the past few years while apparently not prioritizing how a fresh water pipeline could evenly distribute fresh water in the U.S.

A water pipeline could provide much needed jobs to veterans as well. Apparently California has one year left of water, wow. California provides the bulk of certain foods for the entire U.S., so why isn't a water pipeline even being talked about by our media that seems enthralled about going on and on about Hillary Clinton's emails.

Revisiting The Emperor's New Clothes.

First the crowd has been oogling and ahhing the emperors "new clothes," then a kid points out that the emperor is not wearing any clothes at all. Isn't the real ending to this story the one in which the kid is declared a witch by all in attendance, beaten, and burned to a crisp?

What world do you know where the adults appreciate being outed as fools by a child? 

One of my fears about my www.debtneutralitypetition.com and my idea for reducing the income disparity between the rich elite and the rest of the planet is that the ideas are so simple and somewhat obvious those who SHOULD have ALREADY suggested them won't because they either didn't think of the ideas or were too afraid to try to get the ideas approved by the public.

Who would really support my ideas after never offering similar solutions themselves over the last 10 years when these two ideas should have already been implemented. Well its a big planet, not everyone has to like the ideas for them to be implemented, or to work.

Sports Illustrated 2015 Cover Model Photo Hannah Davis Bikini Bottom Image, Hands are Nuanced in the Wrong Direction.

Sports Illustrated gets an epic fail for their lack of nuance. If SI feels the need to show practically all of Hannah Davis's groin area in their 2015 cover photo, at least have the class to make it look like the bikini bottom is being lifted up, not being pushed down. 
I'm not even going to post the image nor a link to the image since I can't stand it when people screw up the minute details and still expect to be rewarded with social media hysteria.
