    The partner of rookie cop Peter Liang told Brooklyn jurors Thursday that he himself was unqualified to resuscitate the man Liang accidently shot in a housing-project stairwell — because the Police Academy lets ­recruits cheat on their CPR- certification tests. So he did nothing to help the dying victim. “How much time [during training] did you spend on a mannequin?” the partner, Shaun Landau, was asked by Liang’s defense lawyer, ­Robert E.

    Are the NYPD to blame for The Hateful Eight's dismal box office receipts? Police claim their boycott is the reason the Tarantino film is performing so poorly Quentin Tarantino's 'hateful Eight' is tanking at the box office and police officers boycotting the newest flick are jumping to take credit. The film, which was released on Christmas day, has only grossed $49.2 million - and it may not even cover the $50 million cost of the production budget. The Weinstein Company is set to lose even more money since they spent $25 million to $35 million on prints and promotion, according...

    Scientific American ^ | 26 Oct, 1998 | Rhett Herman
    Consider the movement of the earth's surface with respect to the planet's center. The earth rotates once every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.09053 seconds, called the sidereal period, and its circumference is roughly 40,075 kilometers. Thus, the surface of the earth at the equator moves at a speed of 460 meters per second-or roughly 1,000 miles per hour. As schoolchildren, we learn that the earth is moving about our sun in a very nearly circular orbit. It covers this route at a speed of nearly 30 kilometers per second, or 67,000 miles per hour. In addition, our solar system--Earth...

Of course the planets are immersed in the faint glow of zodiacal light, visible from the dark site rising at an angle from the horizon. Sometimes known as the false dawn, it's no accident the zodiacal light and planets both lie along the ecliptic....
