2023.05.27 07:00 -NotTakenUsername ESPhome/ESP32 Doppler Radar motion sensor compatibility

Hello! I'm building a project that involves a motion sensor. At first I wanted to use a PIR sensor but I needed more range. As such, I discovered the doppler radar motion sensor. However, I have no clue how compatible it is with the ESPhome. Here is an amazon link to the specific one I'm looking at: How do I connect this? Bonus if you know anything about how susceptible it is to interference from leaves moving around, wind, and rain and if range is affected by the material put in front of it (particularily PLA vs 1/8in plexiglass) Thank you so much!

2023.05.22 05:42 wheresjono Need East Coast MTB Recommendations

I've spent the last two year working remote and mountain biking; other than Bentonville and Brevard, NC I've spent most my time in the western states. I'm headed east now and would love some recommendations. I've found lot's of options that meet my "weekend ride" criteria, but my weekday destinations are where I could use some local help. Here are the details
I'm in Iowa now, then have Louisville, KY booked next week and Chattanooga, TN the week after that. From there I'm giving myself 8-10 weeks on the east coast. Some places on my radar:
I haven't looked too close for anywhere north of there, but know I want to make it up to Vermont. Any local knowledge would be great! The internet has all sorts of info on the big areas. I'm down for those, but also down to spend a week lapping some less known local trails - especially if I don't have to get in a car.

2023.05.20 06:05 crocaducks Does anyone else have radar issues on alternate history Spain?

For some reason on alternate history Spain my radar just simply does not function right; Pulse Doppler won’t work in head on’s, normal radar won’t track people at all, and missiles just fail to track 90% of the time. (Plane: f4j)

2023.05.18 10:02 AmeteurKnifeBro Request: Reflect radar back at the source with an altered frequency.

I'm tinkering with an idea to fool police radar. Currently, the basic idea is a spinning bar with retroreflectors on the receding faces. The goal is for the radar gun to read the speed of the spinning retroreflectors rather than the speed of the car. There are some drawbacks with this design. The biggest is that the bar would need to spin very fast in order to reduce the measured speed significantly.
Is there a way to achieve this effect without without such fast-moving parts? Possibly using multiple reflections off of slower-moving parts? Possibly using some other method other than the Doppler effect to change the frequency that I'm not aware of?
Any powered radar emitters would be classified as illegal jammers, and thus are a non-option.
EDIT: The question I'm asking is how best to achieve frequency-shifted retroreflection. Respectfully, I already know the science behind radar and laser speed enforcement, and I appreciate your opinions on the purpose of policing in modern society, but these things are best left to other subreddits.

2023.05.17 18:02 London-Roma-1980 NON-CONFERENCE MATCHDAY 5 RESULTS

And then everything went haywire. In the first four games, only once did the Top 25 team lose to a non-top-25 Team. By all accounts, this was expected to continue, especially since most of the top 25 squads were facing each other and thus far we hadn't seen much competition from those on the outside. In fact, the only outsider to beat a top 25 team, San Francisco, was now in the club.
But today, with five Top 25 matchups already in the can, things went utterly haywire as four other Top 25 teams found themselves on the wrong end of an upset. It's true that one of them had it coming with suspensions to two players, but the others were harder to see coming. With the results, there are three teams with major scalps that will be able to carry the confidence to the conference season -- especially since, in one case, they're a huge underdog.
Brace yourselves. Lots happened.
Colorado 73, #25 Wake Forest 70. At the beginning of the season, the Buffaloes were picked 11th in the Pac-12 on media day. That number may need to be revised before conference play starts.
Chauncey Billups led the team with 17 points and Burdette Haldorson, pressed into starting duty by injury, made the critical defensive stop as the Buffaloes (5-0) upset the Demon Deacons (4-1) before a stunned Wake Forest Court crowd.
Haldorson, starting because of an ankle sprain to Scott Wedman, played 33 minutes and was mostly used to guard Rodney Rogers and Josh Howard. The two were stymied, combining to shoot 4-15 when guarded by the former AAU great. While Chris Paul (15 pts, 6 ast) and Tim Duncan (18 pts, 11 rebs) still got their numbers, they were troubled by the defensive gameplan, which led to fast break opportunities the other way.
"We knew we had to stick to the game plan if we were gonna have a chance," forward Matt Bullard (14 points) said after their win. "We came in here, we backed each other up, Chauncey had a heck of a game, Birdy [Haldorson] had a heck of a game, it all worked out."
On the final play, down 71-70, the Deacons attempted to hold for the final shot. Duncan was double-teamed and looked to pass it out to Jeff Teague, but Haldorson broke on the pass and knocked it aside. Billups dove onto the ball, calling timeout before turning it over, and the upset was imminent.
#1 UCLA 87, #9 Connecticut 57. Fatigue can be a factor in the Swiss system. After beating LSU and escaping Maryland, it's possible it caught up to Connecticut at exactly the wrong time.
Bill Walton, moved into the starting lineup for a "twin tower" effect, responded with 16 points and 7 rebounds to back up Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 21 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bruins (5-0) pushed their win streak to 42 by demolishing the Huskies (4-1) in front of their home crowd.
"We didn't have an answer," Jim Calhoun regretfully told the postgame press conference. "Those are two of the best offensive players out there. UCLA is an incredible team, and if we're going to compete we gotta figure out what to do. It's gonna be tough."
Ray Allen led the Huskies with 14 points.
#15 Illinois 80, #13 UNLV 77. Both teams had a bevy of shooters, but it took a pass-first guard to make the difference.
Deron Williams' three-point play with 8.8 seconds to go set the lead, and Ricky Sobers' game-tying shot clanged off the rim, as the Illini (5-0) spoiled the Runnin' Rebels (4-1) attempt to collect consecutive Power 6 school scalps.
Meyers Leonard led all scorers with 20 points, while Shawn Marion led the Rebels with 18 points but was covered by Eddie Johnson on the final play, forcing Sobers to call his own number.
"What a win," coach Lou Henson could only say while laughing to himself. "We got a great one today."
#8 Kansas 76, #6 Indiana 49. Hoosiers coach Bobby Knight was ejected just before halftime. He probably was thankful he didn't have to see the rest of the game.
Joel Embiid was one block shy of a triple-double (20 points, 14 rebounds, 9 blocks) and Kansas outrebounded their opponents by 20 as the Jayhawks (5-0) mugged the Hoosiers (4-1) to signal their title intent.
"This team can win it all," coach Phog Allen told reporters. "I have no doubt in my mind. You just saw us beat Ohio State and Indiana, back to back. It doesn't matter who we square off with next, we can beat anyone."
Wilt Chamberlain added 16 points in limited action, sitting out the remainder of the game after getting his third foul early in the second half with the Jayhawks already up 51-29.
"Bring on UCLA," Chamberlain boasted. "Bring on Duke, Carolina, bring 'em all on. We showed how great we are today! We can beat anyone.
Walt Bellamy led the Hoosiers with 11 points.
#4 Kentucky 86, #16 DePaul 57. In the prior round, DePaul had an answer for one star big man. They couldn't handle four being rotated in and out.
Dan Issel, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, and Karl-Anthony Towns all took turns scoring in the post as George Mikan was in foul trouble all day. The result was the Wildcats (5-0) demolishing the Blue Demons (4-1), making an emphatic statement during Statement Week.
"Coach [Adolph] Rupp got us working hard against each other all week," Davis told reporters. "It doesn't matter who we send out there. We're an all-star team. We're not afraid of anyone. We know how good we are. It's just a matter of execution."
All four big men were in double-figures as the Wildcats kept calling plays inside. Issel had 17, Davis had 15, Cousins had 10, and Towns had 11. Devin Booker joined them in double-figures, putting up 12 points on 4-6 three-point shooting.
Mark Aguirre led DePaul with 13 points. Mikan had only 7 points and was limited to 21 minutes due to foul trouble.
#11 Michigan 74, #14 Houston 68. There may only be 3 instead of the 5, but the Fabs are still the signature crew in Michigan basketball history. They showed it tonight, but they also showed that the bench will help them make it all the way.
Chris Webber had 23 points and Juwan Howard blocked Bo Outlaw's back-to-back shots late as the Wolverines (5-0) took out the Cougars (4-1) in spectacular fashion. Beyond them, however, was sixth man Cazzie Russell, who put up 16 points off the bench to key a Michigan comeback.
"Caz was the man today," Webber said at the postgame conference. "He came in when our backs were against the wall and he took us home. He's a tough guy, he showed it tonight. Hell of a show."
Houston was up 36-31 at the half when coach John Beilein swapped Russell in for the misfiring Jamal Crawford. The decision paid off, as Russell was able to shoot over Outlaw and Clyde Drexler and bring Michigan back into the contest.
"We did our best," a somber Drexler said in the locker room. "We just ran into a hot hand."
Elvin Hayes led the Cougars with 18 points and 7 rebounds.
Alabama 78, #5 Michigan State 72, OT. With both Zach Randolph and Draymond Green suspended, Michigan State was vulnerable. Alabama took advantage.
Derrick McKey had 16 points and Latrell Sprewell hit the critical three-point shot with 45 seconds left in the extra session as the Crimson Tide (5-0) upset the #5 Spartans (4-1) to set off a court storming at Alabama Court.
"You live for days like this," coach Wimp Sanderson said in the post-game interview while being cheered on by fans. "We're not going to apologize for beating a short-handed team; we just took one of the best squads in the country down. We're going to celebrate this before we get back to work. This is a hell of a win."
The Spartans, whose players were forced to sit out one game due to their role in a fight against Notre Dame, were forced to rely on Kevin Willis and Jaren Jackson Jr underneath. While both men put up a valiant effort, they were neutralized by Gerald Wallace and Antonio McDyess, who each had 13 rebounds in the upset.
"I hope my kids learned their lesson seeing this game," coach Tom Izzo said.
Oklahoma 99, #23 Arizona State 94. There were some eyebrows raised when the Sun Devils appeared in the Top 25. They won't be there long now.
Buddy Hield had 31 points and Mookie Blaylock had 17 points and 7 steals as the Sooners (5-0) used their up-tempo style to thwart the Sun Devils (4-1) on the road.
"We can run with anybody," coach Billy Tubbs said. "I've never had a group of athletes like this all at once. I figured we might as well take advantage of it, and you saw that on display tonight. These guys deserve to be on the national radar."
It appeared at first that Arizona State could keep pull a surprise win as they kept up with the speed of the "Schooner Offense". James Harden led all scorers in the game with 35 points, and Joe Caldwell wasn't far behind with 28. However, the rest of the team -- in particular Alton Lister (1-8 FG, 4 points) -- struggled to match the intensity, especially late when stamina became a factor.
"We ran out of gas," Harden admitted. "We gotta do better."
Iowa 73, #18 Georgetown 72, 2OT. In a physical battle which saw fouls being called generously and three players for each team foul out, it took the reserves to step up and make the difference. A Hawkeye hero came through in the clutch.
Chris Street's jumper as time expired went through the basket and cued a raucous celebration as the Hawkeyes (4-1) became the second team to stun the Hoyas (3-2) from the unranked in this young season.
"It's a dream come true, wearing the black and gold and lifting them up to a big win," Street said while being hugged by family and friends. "We had trouble underneath, they asked me to step up, and God helped me deliver. What a feeling."
With foul trouble causing a choppy game at the best of times, attrition quickly became the game's story. By the end, Iowa had lost Fred Brown, Don Nelson, and Kevin Kunnert to the five-foul disqualification, while Georgetown was down Jeff Green, Patrick Ewing Sr, and reserve Greg Monroe. As if that weren't enough, guard Ricky Davis was given a technical in the second overtime for shoving Sleepy Floyd, allowing Floyd the chance to hit one of two shots and give the Hoyas the lead.
Hawkeyes coach Bucky O'Connor admitted he had drawn the play up for Connie Hawkins in the huddle, but the team improvised. "Connie did his best, and what he saw was that he drew the double-team," O'Connor explained. "The kid's got great court vision, and he found Chris open as a result. Everyone on this team matters, and we showed it here."

  25. Wake Forest 70, Colorado 73
And now, a special bonus write-up because as soon as I saw the final score, I knew history had to be made.
Texas 141, Loyola Marymount 93. Loyola Marymount is famous for playing at a faster pace than anyone else. It helped them make a WCC Tournament final run last season. That result, however, may be difficult to repeat if they run into players like Kevin Durant, who did something not seen on the island in over a decade.
Durant's 70 points were the most scored in an NIBL game since 2010, and it helped key the Longhorns (4-1) to a blowout win over the Lions (3-2) in front of a Texas Court crowd that chanted MVP all night for their star player.
"Unbelievable," coach Rick Barnes said of the performance. "He went out there, he had his motor on all night, and he didn't want to come out. When he got to 60, I said to [LMU Coach] Paul [Westhead] that we wanna see how high he can fly. We found out it's pretty damn high tonight."
While LMU's stars made the most out of their speed of play -- Hank Gathers led the Lions with 38 -- there was no answer for Durant. He shot an incredible 25-41 from the field, including 8-15 from behind the arc. Throw in a 12-14 performance from the line, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks, and Durant had an incredible day.
Kansas' Wilt Chamberlain still holds the NIBL record for points in a game from 2001. He scored 88 points as the Jayhawks beat Morris Brown 151-47. Before Durant, the last person to score 70+ in a game was Elgin Baylor, when he put up 71 as Seattle beat LMU 125-108 in 2010.

How would the Sea Harrier FA.2 perform in-game?
The Sea Harrier FA.2 is a variant of the Sea Harrier family with various improvements over its predecessor, including...
- A new and improved Ferranti Blue Vixen Pulse Doppler Radar - The ability to carry new weaponry, such as Sea Eagle AShM's, Martel and ALARM AGM's and up to 4 AMRAAM's
The ability to carry AMRAAM's alone may result in this vehicle getting a relatively high BR, perhaps up to 12.0+. This is bad news as this variant sees no aerodynamic improvements over the regular Sea Harrier FRS.1.
How d you think it would perform in-game if added?

2023.05.12 01:09 SportsDude012 LEAST Anticipated Game for Each Week of 2023 [OC]

As the 2023 season approaches, many sites will be putting out articles discussing the “most anticipated games for this season” or something along those lines. This is where I come in and break out the old switcheroo, as for the 3rd straight year, I’m doing the complete opposite. There are always at least a few FBS games that get completely forgotten about each week, and those are the ones I’m targeting here. I’m not looking for true Sickos matchups when I write this, as those seem to get quite a bit of interest online. Instead, complete mediocrity is the main focus, games that are just barely watchable for a few minutes, and that’s it. Only FBS vs FBS contests are eligible for this list, and a few teams do show up on here twice, but I’ve just focused on their opponent the second time around for redundancy’s sake. Let’s begin, shall we? (Parentheses are for team’s ESPN FPI ranking.)
Week 0: FIU (129) vs Louisiana Tech (101) – August 27: This year’s week 0 slate features 7 games, and this was essentially process of elimination. Notre Dame and USC are always relevant, so there goes 2 games. Vandy is a power 5 team, so they get a pass here as well. UMass and New Mexico State is the ultimate tank bowl, so there is plenty of Sickos appeal there. Jacksonville State has their first game as an FBS school, there goes that. That leaves us with 2 games, and this Conference USA matchup edges out Ohio vs San Diego State, since only one team here has a legit chance at a conference championship, while both teams in the other matchup could shine. Expect a blowout here, but not an absurd one, as LT isn’t all that great, but they’re a functional program, which is more than I can say about FIU. (Honorable Mentions: Ohio vs San Diego State, Hawaii vs Vanderbilt)
Week 1: Bowling Green (125) vs Liberty (97) – September 2: While this is a matchup of 2 bowl teams from 2022, both are projected to take a step back this year. Bowling Green’s most notable game last year was a 7-overtime loss to FCS Eastern Kentucky, and they fell to New Mexico State in the Quick Lane Bowl to finish 6-7. They took advantage of a weak schedule and will face quite an uphill battle to contend in the MAC this year. Liberty has the weakest schedule in the country this year, with a nonconference schedule of 2 MAC teams, UMass, and Old Dominion. They could maybe be the worst 10-win team in history, and this should be the first victory of many on that quest. Jamey Chadwell will start on the right foot here, as their offense should do more than enough for an easy win. (Honorable Mentions: Akron vs Temple, Northern Illinois vs Boston College)
Week 2: Louisiana (80) vs Old Dominion (115) – September 9: This is the only conference game on the FBS schedule this week, and that is really the only notable thing from this matchup. The Cajuns took a major step back in 2022, dropping from 12-1 to 6-7 in Michael Desormeaux’s first season as head coach, including losses to Rice and ULM. They didn’t truly shine in any aspect, but their defense was decent enough to get them to a bowl. ODU slumped their way to a 3-9 season, although 2 of the wins were somehow against Virginia Tech and Coastal Carolina. They return many of their top offensive players, but the defense will likely take a step back. While it is the first matchup ever between these schools, it’ll be one that will fly under the radar in all aspects. (Honorable Mentions: Miami (OH) vs UMass, Memphis vs Arkansas State)
Week 3: Georgia State (92) vs Charlotte (118) – September 16: These 2 teams feel like they are both in the midst of a rebuilding phase. Georgia State is coming off a 4-8 year and returns the second fewest production (according to SP+) of any FBS team. It just feels like there isn’t much to say about this team, as they return their starting QB and main skill position players but replace a ton of defense and nearly their whole offensive line. Charlotte is coming off a 3-9 season and are 1 of 6 teams making the jump from Conference USA to the American, where it won’t get any easier for them. They also have a ton of new faces, ranking 120th in returning production. This game could come down to whichever team is gelling better by this point, but I still feel Shawn Elliott will lead Georgia State to a comfortable win. (Honorable Mentions: UMass vs Eastern Michigan, Liberty vs Buffalo)
Week 4: Colorado State (122) vs Middle Tennessee (112) – September 23: This week had 5 good choices for this “honor”, but I’ll give it to this weird matchup. Colorado State’s offense was putrid last year, never reaching 20 points on their way toa a 3-9 record. Their highest point total was 19, which came against Middle Tennessee. Yes, this is the second game of a home-and-home, the first game of which went to MTSU, with a 34-19 win. This was the first of 8 wins in 2022 for the Blue Raiders, capped off with a win over San Diego State in the Hawaii Bowl. Other than a road win over Miami, none of their wins were all that notable, for excitement or quality of victory. This should be the same way, as their defense, returning 86% of its production, will carry them to a win. (Honorable Mentions: UNLV vs UTEP, Georgia Southern vs Ball State)
Week 5: Arkansas State (99) vs UMass (133) – September 30: Arkansas State seems like the one Sun Belt team everyone forgets about. They went 3-9 last year, with their only conference win coming against ULM. Butch Jones returns for his 3rd season as head coach, hoping to improve on a dismal 5-17 record. One of their other wins last year though was a 35-33 triumph over UMass. The Minutemen went 1-11 last year, only picking up a win over FCS Stony Brook. They return a ton of players on both sides of the ball, but the issues here are more than just the players. Life as an independent has been brutal for UMass, never going better than 4-8 since leaving the MAC. They are 3-37 the last 4 years, and signs don’t seem to be improving a whole lot. This will likely be another brutal loss to go with many this year, as the schedule is quite unfavorable. (Honorable Mentions: Texas State vs Southern Miss, Miami (OH) vs Kent State)
Week 6: Northern Illinois (114) vs Akron (128) – October 7: This was probably the hardest week to pick a game for, as there are a lot of byes in week 6, especially at the group of 5 level. UConn vs Rice is an obvious candidate, but the Sickos appeal of that one will be off the charts. That leaves us here in Akron, with a matchup that most people would only watch if it was on a weeknight. MACtion just doesn’t hit the same on weekends, as pretty much all games, especially this one, go undiscussed online due to the massive schedule. NIU comes off a 3-9 season, with defense as their weak point, only allowing less than 20 points once all season. Akron was even worse, going 2-10, one of those wins being 44-12 over NIU. This one could prove to be competitive, but it’s 2 of the clear worst teams in a very weak conference packed into a crowded Saturday slate, so will anyone really care? (Honorable Mentions: UConn vs Rice, Old Dominion vs Southern Miss)
Week 7: San Jose State (100) vs New Mexico (126) – October 14: We move from the MAC to the Mountain West, where the usual contenders seem poised to fight for another conference championship. Neither of these teams fit that moniker. SJSU put together a solid campaign last year, going 7-5 including an appearance in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. They return a good chunk of offensive production, but there’s a lot to replace on defense, and they have to face the top 2 teams Mountain division teams from last year in conference play. New Mexico went 2-10, struggling tremendously on offense, only eclipsing 14 points in 3 games. Almost everyone on offense returns, but it doesn’t seem like the ceiling for them is all that high. The Spartans should easily prevail here, as they did the last time these teams faced off, a 38-21 win in 2020. (Honorable Mentions: Temple vs North Texas, Navy vs Charlotte)
Week 8: South Florida (104) vs UConn (119) – October 21: This is another one where I feel it could be a comfortable blowout, but in the reverse of FPI. I just don’t get why the metric is so high on USF at all. They went 1-11 last year, their only victory coming over FCS Howard. They do have a new coach in Alex Golesh, formerly the Tennessee offensive coordinator, but return very few key players and did nothing notable in the transfer portal. I feel like this will have a be a full rebuild for Golesh, and USF could be one of the worst FBS teams this year. UConn meanwhile went 6-7 last year, an impressive record considering their preseason projections and being an independent. They return the 6th most production in the FBS and will likely only face 1 ranked team all season, being Tennessee. This could be another step forward and should include a home victory here. (Honorable Mentions: Western Michigan vs Ohio, ULM vs Georgia Southern)
Week 9: Arkansas State (99) vs ULM (127) – October 28: Arkansas State is our first of 4 duplicates on this list, and while they should pick up another win here, let’s focus on the Warhawks for this entry. ULM is coming off a 4-8 year, with 3 of their wins coming in Sun Belt play, including a 21-17 upset victory over rival Louisiana. The program has been in the doldrums of the FBS for a long while now, with only 1 bowl appearance and 1 winning record since reviving the program in 1994. Terry Bowden enters his 3rd year as head coach here, going 4-8 in each of his first 2 seasons. Starting QB Chandler Rogers returns for his sophomore year, but little else on offense remains, so meshing with his new starters will be key to success. There are winnable games on the schedule, particularly against FCS Lamar and Texas State, but this likely won’t be one of them. (Honorable Mentions: New Mexico vs Nevada, Air Force vs Colorado State)
Week 10: Middle Tennessee (112) vs New Mexico State (130) – November 4: Conference USA is lucky they put many of their matchups on weeknights, otherwise this list would be polluted with them. This is their second and final conference game on the list, to go along with the week 0 matchup. This is another matchup of bowl teams from 2022, and we already discussed MTSU back in week 4, so you know their story. On the other side, NMSU moves into Conference USA after spending the past 5 seasons as an independent. Last season was easily the highlight of the 5 years, going 7-6 including a win over Bowling Green in the Quick Lane Bowl, only their 2nd bowl since 1960. While they didn’t beat anyone all too notable, their defense did more than enough to keep them in most games against group of 5 teams, winning most of them. The defense sees a ton of changes, which will likely lead to a significant step back. (Honorable Mentions: Charlotte vs Tulsa, Hawaii vs Nevada)
Week 11: Temple (110) vs South Florida (104) – November 11: This matchup has been a battle of AAC basement dwellers for a good few seasons now, and even with all the new faces in the conference, these teams figure to be near the bottom once more. Again, we’ve discussed USF already, so let’s focus on everyone’s favorite subreddit meme, Temple. Everything went downhill for this school when they hired Rod Carey in 2020 to replace Geoff Collins, who took the Georgia Tech job. Carey only lasted 2 seasons, going 4-15. Former Texas associate head coach Stan Drayton took over last season, leading the Owls to a 3-9 season. The season had a good chance to turn out better than it was, considering Temple went 0-4 in one score games. They return 77% of their production, 10th best in the FBS, and beat USF 54-28 last year, so another drubbing should take place here. (Honorable Mentions: FIU vs Middle Tennessee, Wyoming vs UNLV)
Week 12: Kent State (123) vs Ball State (111) – November 18: This is the second dose of weekend MACtion on the list, and this one is just confusing. Week 12 in the MAC features 3 Tuesday night games, a pair of Wednesday night games, and this lone Saturday contest. Not sure why this matchup gets the special treatment, as it isn’t looking to be anywhere close to a marquee matchup. Kent State went 5-7 last year, 4 of their wins being in the conference. They are dead last in returning production though, with only 25% returning for the team, with a paltry 19% of their offensive production returning. The Cardinals also went 5-7, finishing 4th in the West division. They return most of their offense and have a pretty weak schedule, outside of 2 games against SEC foes to start the year. This should be a smooth win for them, which could go a long way to their 3rd bowl appearance in 4 years. (Honorable Mentions: Temple vs UAB, Old Dominion vs Georgia Southern)
Week 13: Utah State (113) vs New Mexico (126) – November 25: The last week of the season is the hardest one to pick for this, as any group of 5 matchup could have bowl implications for at least one team. This seems like the safest bet for a no-stakes matchup that will also be a snoozer to watch. The other likely no-stakes matchup, Charlotte vs USF, at least has shootout potential. These 2 teams are defense-first, especially the Lobos. We already discussed New Mexico though, so let’s focus on the better team here. USU went to the First Responder Bowl last year as part of a 6-7 season and could realistically improve on that. Last year’s nonconference matchups of Alabama and BYU are replaced with Iowa and James Madison. If they can take one of those two and capitalize on a down Mountain West as a whole, they should have a bowl bid locked up by this game. That’s at least what I’m betting on. (Honorable Mentions: Charlotte vs USF, Northern Illinois vs Kent State)

2023.05.06 12:09 Kaitlyn_Boucher Project Black Spot, Ubon RTAFB '69-'70

I hope this is the right subreddit in which to post something like this. My father, now deceased, was assigned to Project Black Spot at Ubon Royal Thai Air Force Base from January 1969 until February 1970. I'm not bound by the Official Secrets Act, and now that he's dead, they can't come down on him. His account of a particular incident differs completely from the official USAF records of the project, and I've been unable to find anything on the internet that confirms what he saw. Some people have come close, but they either haven't written it down or don't know about it.
Project Black Spot involved taking two AC-123 aircraft and, after making them into bombers, modifying them with Doppler radar, FLIR, and laser guided bombing capability, things that may seem rather pedestrian today, but at the time these two aircraft were the first to make use of FLIR in locating targets. My father was the NCOIC (non-commissioned officer in charge) of the night shift at the avionics shop, and he was responsible for making sure these systems worked. This was a lot of responsibility for someone who had just enlisted in 1966, someone who arrived in Thailand as a sergeant and left as a staff sergeant.
Various accounts available online concerning the project, probably drawn from official USAF sources, mention a "munitions incident on March 19, 1969. What actually happened, according to my father, was a loss of one of the aircraft to enemy anti-aircraft fire on approach to land at Ubon. He said that the tail of the aircraft was destroyed, and it crash landed on the runway with the loss of all crew aboard. This was a story he told me several times, usually when he got in the mood to talk about his time in the Air Force. Later in life when I questioned him about it, he would cry and refuse to talk about it. It was clearly something that he was still grieving over near the end of his life. By then, he would just say that he lost some friends in that crash, start to cry, and wave me away. My father was not a liar, and wouldn't even tell a white lie to make someone feel better. It wasn't in his nature.
Years ago, maybe around a decade ago, I found out that these aircraft were supposedly flown to Davis-Monathan AFB in Arizona, which is apparently the USAF boneyard for old aircraft. So, I called the base and asked some questions about the aircraft. I was told they would contact me later. I thought, "Sure you will." But they did! A couple of hours later, I got a call from a major who identified himself as the public relations officer for the air base, and he made it very clear that the official story was true, that the two aircraft made it back to the States and were sitting in Arizona. I was really rather intimidated by the call and said something along the lines of, "Oh, he must have been mistaken, then. Old people say the darndest things!" Then I went along with his story and thanked him. I found the whole thing rather odd.
After he was diagnosed with a terminal illness, we got his DD-214 to file with the VA for benefits, and reading it, I found that he was awarded some kind of campaign medal for being in Korea before and after the crew of the USS Pueblo were released by the North Koreans. He said he'd never been in Korea, and my mother said that he was in the US during the entire Pueblo incident. The rest of his DD-214 doesn't reflect at all what schools he went to or what he did. His official passport was never stamped, either, although I don't know what that could mean.
I know this may sound kind of mundane, but it got me thinking that if the USAF is willing to continue covering this up decades after the fact, there must be plenty of other things they're covering up that no one talks about.
Maybe I'm mistaken. Old people with dementia do say some of the strangest things, right?
Edit: I'd like to thank everyone who responded positively to this story. I really had no idea how it would be taken. I felt it was important to get it out there for several reasons. This particular story isn't mentioned on the internet or official USAF records AFAIK, and I wanted people to know that men died in a crash because they were shot down by antiaircraft fire, not some malfunction or accident. The base at Ubon was surrounded by hostile forces, Viet Cong and their Laotian counterparts. I don't have conclusive proof, and I doubt it's forthcoming from the Air Force any time soon, but I believe my father's story. He didn't drink alcohol, and he didn't use drugs, so what he told me came straight from his unimpaired human memory. Those planes had to be turned around in 15 minutes so they could go back and use cluster bombs to bomb the Ho Chi Minh Trail, regardless of whether it was in Vietnam, Laos, or another country. I imagine he was standing there on the flight line, getting ready to jump on the plane and start the usual diagnostic testing along with the other ground crew, those who would refuel the aircraft, those who would load more bombs on it, the mechanics who checked the engines, etc., and they saw it crash. Maybe someone who saw it is still alive. Maybe the wives, sons and daughters of the men who died that day will read this. I'm ambivalent about that, because they may not necessarily want to know this. They may have compartmentalized this in their minds and dealt with it, and maybe they don't want to hear another possibility. I've thought about this, and if this causes anyone any distress, I'm very sorry.
Also, it's very easy for me to feel someone else's pain, and the pain my father felt from this incident was real, very deep, and for me, palpable. He wasn't able to talk about it in life, but I can do it for him after his death. It helps me let go of him, in a way. I don't know if anyone would understand that, or if I'm articulating it properly.
After the war he had what is now called PTSD. I don't know if it was because of the crash or because the airbase was routinely shelled by enemy forces. He wanted nothing to do with the Air Force and would not discuss his service, use the GI Bill, and wanted nothing to do with the VA. One of his biggest fears was being recalled back to active service while he was in the ready reserve. It terrified him. When I naively asked him why he didn't become an officer, as he had over two years of college, he said he wouldn't because they didn't have to let officers leave the service. He enlisted in the USAF because he was notified that he was to be inducted into the Army, and wanted a better chance to survive, so he chose the Air Force. Whether he wanted to admit it or not, his time in the Air Force profoundly affected him for the worse. They wanted him to re-enlist, and offered him a promotion to Technical Sergeant, but he just wanted out. He'd done his four years plus a couple of months extra, and he was done with it. the Black Spot program wound down a few months after he left anyway.

Unusual returns over coast
Any guesses on this radar return? Well-defined doppler and correlation, but almost nothing on intensity. Unfortunately, I did not have classification on. It's possible that this is bird flocking, but odd to see it extend so far over water.

2023.05.03 15:58 Manoj_Malhotra The Republican push to weaken child labor laws, explained - Vox

Disclaimer: Please note Vox is a liberal leaning news organization.
Earlier this week Republican state lawmakers in Wisconsin circulated a new bill that would allow workers as young as 14 years old to serve alcohol in bars and restaurants, down from the state’s current age minimum of 18 years old. The legislative proposal “creates a simple solution” to workforce staffing issues, said the Republican bill sponsors in a memo they circulated to colleagues on Monday.
Wisconsin is not the only state looking to loosen labor laws affecting minors, and over the last few months there’s been Republican-led bills in states like Arkansas, Ohio, and Iowa aimed at making it easier for teenagers to work in more jobs and for more hours in the day. These efforts have overlapped with shockingexposés in the New York Times and Washington Post thatuncovered exploited migrant children working illegally in American jobs.
As the Wisconsin lawmakers suggested, these new bills are partly a reaction to the competitive labor market and struggles businesses have been facing to fill open positions. But they’re also rooted in longstanding conservative opposition to workplace regulation, and some labor advocates worry they’re just the opening salvo to a broader attack on government safety rules.
What are the new state laws being proposed?
Over the last two years, at least 10 states have introduced or enacted laws to change the rules governing teenage work requirements.
In 2022, New Hampshire and New Jersey passed laws extending the hours teenagers could work. New Hampshire lawmakers also relaxed rules for busing tables where alcohol is served, allowing 14-year-olds now to do it, down from the previous minimum of 15 years old. New Jersey lawmakers bumped up the number of hoursteens can work during the summer (to 40 hours a week for 14- and 15-year-olds and 50 for 16- and 17-year-olds.)
This year lawmakers have advanced more bills in states like Georgia, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Iowa.
Some rule changes — like allowing teens to work later in the summer — sound fairly innocuous, but others have caused more concern, like a proposal in Minnesota to allow 16- and 17-year-olds to work on construction sites, and one in Iowa that would allow 14-year-olds to work in meat coolers. Others worry about a general slippery slope of loosening child labor laws, and sending a message to employers that enforcement will be even more relaxed than it already is.
For example, even though a federal labor investigation recently found 10 children working illegally in Arkansas for a company that cleans hazardous meatpacking equipment, in March, Republican Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed the “Youth Hiring Act” — a law eliminating Arkansas’ requirement that 14- and 15-year-olds get work permits. The work permits, which Republicans called an “arbitrary” burden, had required proof of age, parent permission, and an employer’s signature.
While work permits are not mandated under federal law, critics of the Youth Hiring Act said they provided an important paper trail of youth employment, and reminded Arkansas businesses of their legal obligations.
In Iowa, lawmakers are advancing a controversial bill that allows young teens to work in some currently prohibited fields, if it’s deemed part of a school or employer training program. Supporters of the bill say more hazardous jobs like heavy manufacturing and construction would still be barred from teen employment, but new exceptions for minors would include fields like demolition and manufacturing. The bill would also permit 16- and 17-year-olds to serve alcohol in restaurants, if their parents granted permission. Democratic lawmakers have voiced concern about the risks this poses to youth workers, especially since the bill would also extend the hours a teen could work into the night.
The federal government provides a floor of protection against child labor, and that hasn’t changed — yet
The federal government regulates youth employment primarily under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), a law Congress passed in 1938. The FLSA bars “oppressive child labor” and sets a floor on standards, wages, and hours for teen jobs. Those standards include:
Minors of any age can work in virtually any business that’s entirely owned by their parents, except for youth under age 16, who can’t work in mining or manufacturing.
No minor can work in an occupation deemed hazardous, like roofing or forest fire fighting.
Children under 14 can work in FLSA exempt-jobs like delivering newspapers, acting, and babysitting.
On school days, 14- and 15-year-olds can work for up to three hours outside of school hours. On days when school is not in session, they can work up to eight hours.
During the summer months 14- and 15-year-olds can work until 9 pm, though during the traditional school year they can only work between 7 am and 7 pm.
The FLSA doesn’t regulate things like job breaks or benefits, but does allow for an employer to pay youth workers a minimum wage of $4.25 during their first 90 days on the job. The FLSA also has a much weaker set of protections for children working in agriculture.
Most minors are covered under FLSA, and states can pass their own protections on top, so long as they don’t conflict with the federal government’s. For example, it’s common for states to limit the hours 16-year-olds can work, and require all minors to get “work permits” to get jobs, but these are not federal rules.
Many of the legislative fights lately concern efforts to roll back some of those state protections, or to impose changes that apply to the narrow set of employers exempt from FLSA. However, there’s also been some conservative rumbling about changing the federal rules, too. In Ohio, for example, Republican lawmakers approved a bill allowing 14- and 15-year-olds to work until 9 pm, rather than 7 pm, during the school year with parent permission, and passed a concurrent resolution urging Congress to amend the FLSA to bring it in line with Ohio’s change.
Enforcement of federal youth labor laws hasn’t been great
The Department of Labor is responsible for enforcing the FLSA, but the underfunded agency has been struggling greatly on that front. Earlier this year the agency announced the number of minors employed in jobs that violate child labor laws in fiscal year 2022 increased 37 percent over fiscal year 2021, and 283 percent over fiscal year 2015.
Congress has held the Labor Department’s budget flat for years, leading to a 12 percent loss in Wage and Hour division staff between 2010 and 2019. The department’s Office of the Solicitor has also lost more than 100 attorneys over the last decade, for these same budgetary reasons.
In February the Labor Department reported findings from 14 separate child labor investigations, including one that found Packers Sanitation Services, Inc. had been illegally employing over 100 teens between the ages of 13 and 17 in hazardous occupations. Federal investigators found the use of child labor “systemic” across eight states.
While the Department of Labor has over 600 additional child labor investigations open, critics note the penalties for violating FLSA are weak, thus the law itself may be a weak deterrent. The penalty for Packers Sanitation, for example, was a mere $1.5 million.
In the wake of the New York Times investigating companies illegally employing youth migrant workers in dangerous jobs, the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services launched a new joint task force to investigate the problem, and pledged to try and better vet sponsors of unaccompanied children.
Lawmakers are also scrambling to react with bills in Congress to increase civil penalties for child labor law violations, though for now nothing has moved forward.
Conservatives and business groups have long objected to youth employment restrictions and they’re behind the new bills today, too
Some conservatives have long seen child labor laws as government overreach, dictating rules for minors that should be left up to individual families. Others simply oppose most forms of government regulation. And still others see youth labor restrictions as an unnecessary barrier at a time when companies are struggling to hire workers.
Conservative billionaire Charles Koch and his late brother David Koch have long used their fortunes to support rolling back child labor restrictions. In 1980, David Koch ran for vice president on the Libertarian Party ticket and pledged to “abolish” child labor laws, income taxes, and Medicare. In 1982, Ronald Reagan’s administration proposed the first major change to federal child labor laws in 40 years, to expand the hours and types of jobs 14- and 15-year-olds could work, and make it easier for employers to pay students less than minimum wage.
Tesnim Zekeria from Popular Information highlighted some of the more recent Koch-funded efforts to weaken support for child labor laws, including an essay, “A Case Against Child Labor Prohibitions”published in 2014 from the Koch-funded Cato Institute that argued depriving work opportunities to poor children in developing countries “only limits their options further and throws them into worse alternatives.”
In 2016, a Koch-funded conservative nonprofit, the Foundation for Economic Education, published “Let the Kids Work” where the author argued children taking jobs would help them develop a work ethic, a professional network, and skills and discipline to build character. In 2019, another academic tied to the Koch-funded Commonwealth Foundation argued in Forbes to eliminate the minimum wage for teenagers.
Last week the Washington Post reported on a Florida-based conservative think tank, the Foundation for Government Accountability, that has played a leading role in the recent spate of bills winding through state legislatures. In March, the Arkansas state representative who sponsored the state’s “Youth Hiring Act” said the bill “came to me from the Foundation [for] Government Accountability.” The Post also found the Florida think tank helped a Missouri lawmaker craft and edit their child labor bill.
Other conservative causes the Foundation for Government Accountability focuses on include blocking Medicaid expansion and adding new restrictions to welfare programs like food stamps. On their website they proclaim they help “free individuals from the trap of government dependence and to let them experience the power of work.”
Yet another conservative group pushing new bills to weaken child labor rules is the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the primary lobbying arm for small businesses. The American Prospect and Workday magazines reported on its advocacy role and its reliance on the tight labor market as justification. “Our members’ inability to fill workplace vacancies has catapulted to the top concern currently facing the success of their businesses,” said NFIB in 2021 testimony it submitted in support of Ohio’s proposed bill.
The Foundation for Government Accountability also points to the worker shortage as justification. In a white paper the group published in 2022, they emphasized that teenagers “are a critical source of labor for businesses struggling to find help” and underscored that parents should get to decide whether their kids worked or not, linking their advocacy to a broader political push on the right for “parents’ rights.”
According to an analysis by the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute, between 2001 and 2021, the share of 16- to 19-year-olds not working increased by 22.4 percent, which the think tank said is “almost entirely explained” by the higher share of young people prioritizing education during those years.
The risks of loosening youth employment rules
Immigration advocates say the loosening of child labor rules poses the greatest threat to migrant children, who are already more vulnerable to exploitation. The number of unaccompanied children entering the United States rose to 128,904 in 2022, per federal data.
Ending work permits, some advocates warn, will make it even harder to track the landscape of child labor in the United States. The Census Bureau’s American Community Survey only asks about employment status for those 16 and older. Some children are paid in cash, and the available data on youth employment — especially in agriculture — is notoriously incomplete.
“We don’t have very good estimates of the number of independent child migrants that are working in the United States,” Eric Edmonds, an economist at Dartmouth who studies youth trafficking and child labor, told The Dispatch in March. “My guess is that the number of independent child migrants that are working are a fraction of a percent of the number of children working in the United States.”
Labor experts warn that the weakening of child labor laws also threatens other workplace regulations, as well as the wages of all workers. Many of the same conservative organizations pushing these rules have also taken aim at union rights and environmental safety standards.
For now, many of these efforts have picked up steam by skating under the radar, and seizing on the fact that many parents hold favorable opinions generally of teen work. A recent national poll led by the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health found only 29 percent of parents considered themselves very informed about their state’s laws for teen employment, but over 60 percent said teen jobs helped promote time management skills, and over 75 percent said they help teach money management.
In March the Des Moines RegisteMediacom Iowa Poll surveyed state residents on the bill pending in the Iowa legislature to relax child labor laws, and found 50 percent favored the bill, 42 percent opposed it, and 8 percent were unsure. Republicans and men were likely to support the bill, while Democrats and a plurality of women opposed it. Among parents of those with children under 18, the pollsters found 57 percent backed it.

2023.05.03 15:45 imgrendel GOP going after no fault divorce in other states - is Iowa next

GOP is going after no fault divorce in other states - is Iowa next? Our state seems to be following the same playbook. Do you think we’ll see this floated in next year’s session?
Axing “No Fault Divorce” has been on the GOP fringe’s radar for years. After all the rolling back of personal rights recently, it’s gaining traction now that the religious fringe has taken over the party.

2023.05.02 22:05 silveronyx2798 My Great Grandpa and Great Aunt were taken away by the federal government during WW2 under the suspicion they were German spies. Where do I find documentation of this?

Just a bit of information.
My grandma came over to the States in 1936 with her parents. They were sponsored by other family members who had immigrated in the decade prior. My grandma was only one at the time and was only 10 by the end of the war. So she has very little attachment to where she was born. Anyways my great-grandparents immigrated to a small town (less than 600 people) in eastern Iowa. Not too long after they moved to the States my Great Grandpa (grandma's Dad) and my Great Aunt (Grandmas's Aunt/Great Grandpa's Sister) were taken away by the federal government, sent to Omaha, and were held for a little over a year or so. According to the stories I have been told it is believed that someone in the town may have raised suspicions and that's what led to their detainment. As far as I know, my Great Grandpa wasn't aligned with what was going on in Germany at the time and that is why they immigrated. So if the US government was already on his case I don't know where suspicion would arise other than him simply being German (which may have been enough in that era). My Great Aunt on the other hand was part of the Hitler Youth program so I can see why the government may have had her on their radar when she immigrated. Anyways my grandma doesn't know a whole lot about what happened because she was quite young when this happened and neither her Aunt or Dad talked much about it in the years following.
I guess what I am asking is where do I begin to find any information on this (if any exists)? If information exists it may not even be accessible or even classified because it has to do with counterespionage activities. Anyways if any of you could direct me on where to look first that would be greatly appreciated. Stories of this incident are nice but physical documentation of it all would be awesome and would hopefully provide deeper insight than what my grandma can provide.
