I took this photograph and short video of Caney Creek Falls (Wm. B. Bankhead National Forest) while hog hunting Saturday before last. There was still ice and snow on the ground from two days prior. I am actually behind the larger falls filming. Enjoy

** Iran says US goals are opposite to their objectives. But we're still working with them and facilitating their access to Iraq... WHY?
** Say, where is Barackus' consigliere Jarrett from again?
** When you've lost THE FRENCH...
** Barackus and Iran. That WILL leave a mark.

If everyone on the plane is dead, how do they know?

"If a crew member locks down the flight deck with the manual doors, nothing will open it," a second Australian pilot said.
It is possible for one pilot of an Airbus A320 to lock the other pilot out of the cockpit to the extent that he cannot regain entry, even if the aircraft is in a fatal dive, says an Australian pilot of an A320.
The New York Times has reported, citing an official involved in the Germanwings crash investigation, that the cockpit voice recorder shows one of the pilots had left the flight deck and could not regain entry.
"You can hear he is trying to smash the [cockpit] door down," the official said.
An Australian A320 pilot, who declined to be named, said the locked flight deck of the aircraft could be entered using an emergency code on a keypad – in the case of the pilot flying the aircraft being incapacitated, the door will automatically open after a set period of time if the correct code is entered. However, in the event the pilot flying the aircraft does not want the other pilot to enter the flight deck, the one in the cockpit has the ability to block entry if he reacts before the door would open automatically.
"If the person on the other side of the door says 'no', you can't get in," the Australian pilot said.
He added that the doors are bolted and heavily protected and it would likely be impossible to break it down within minutes, even if passengers or flight attendants assisted.

Between 1939 and 1944, seven Powell brothers joined the military, a fairly astonishing number and one that caught the attention of a local lawmaker who wants to honor the family's service by renaming a road through their home county in west-central Illinois after the brothers.

David Hunt is on my blogroll and he has some fun stuff. Check out his blog and, if inclined, his Portfolio, and his About Me and Why I Blog pages to get a sense of who he is.

He's not getting a lot of traction in his job search in New England, and is opening up his search. He's looking southward, e.g., the Carolinas, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas, with some specific criteria. If you have any thoughts on places to look, companies to apply to, or are willing to be a networking contact, he can be reached at davidhunt (at) outdrs (dot) net. Please mention in the subject that you heard about him here.
His criteria for a target area:
An established Conservative (denominationally) Jewish community
A Montessori school that - ideally - goes through 8th grade
Other preferences (negotiable):
Not pure-flat landscape
Trees / forests
A large city within an hour's drive
