Perhaps FOX 4 Weather says things best, “Today will mark the sixth straight day of temperatures at or above 90 degrees... and that streak looks to continue as we move towards the weekend.

Blue light helps Overland Park police catch red light runners
Blue lights at K Mart are newest tools to stop red-light runners
Alicorn Lyra by ~Zacatron94 on deviantART
“Have you noticed the blue light on the underside of the traffic lights at College Boulevard and Quivira Road? They’re a new safety tool designed to help Overland Park police officers catch red-light runners.

When the traffic light turns red on the arm where the blue light is located, the blue light comes on and can be seen from every direction. This allows officers who can’t see the red light itself to look for vehicles in the intersection running the red light.

According to the city’s press release, researchers at the University of Kansas School of Engineering are partnering with Lawrence as well as Overland Park to install the lights and increase safety at four busy intersections: two in Lawrence and two in Overland Park.

The second Overland Park intersection equipped with the blue lights is at 75th Street and Metcalf Avenue.

The intersections were selected based on input from the cities' public works and police departments.

The blue light system is a low-cost, noninvasive countermeasure designed to help police officers sitting downstream of an intersection to safely identify and pull over drivers who run a red light. It also reduces the number of police officers needed to monitor a traffic light and identify violators at the two intersections.

The project is funded by the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Mid-America Regional Council. After six months, it will be evaluated. The project began on July 2.

Brian Shields, Overland Park city traffic engineer, writes that the blue light is less visible during the day than it is at night.”

Eastern cicada killer wasps are back
We have documented that you have to act something because it is a feeling: Long time no see!
Various summary | KRSK [pixiv]
“Eastern cicada killer wasps have built nests near the Hare and Bell sculpture in the northeast corner of the Fountain Square, and in the yew bed on the east side of the Commons building.

According to Kansas State Research and Extension, the wasps are not a threat to humans.

If threatened, males may act aggressively, but they are unable to sting. Females can sting, but are so passive that they rarely do. The extension service says the stings are less painful than those of other wasps, and more like that of a sweat bee.

Adults are active from mid-July to mid-September, when cicadas, their primary prey, are active.

The wasps can be seen at JCCC every year, and Campus Services is aware of the wasps’ presence. Explanatory signs will be posted in the areas where the wasps have nested:

‘By the time Sky-net became self-aware it had spread into millions of computer servers across the planet. Ordinary computers in office buildings, dorm rooms; everywhere. It was software; in cyberspace. There was no system core; it could not be shutdown.

The attack began at 6:18 PM, just as he said it would. Judgment Day, the day the human race was almost destroyed by the weapons they’d built to protect themselves. I should have realized it was never our destiny to stop Judgment Day, it was merely to survive it, together.

The Terminator knew; he tried to tell us, “Your levity is good, it relieves tension and the fear of death,” but I didn’t want to hear it. Maybe the future has been written. I don’t know; all I know is what the Terminator taught me; never stop fighting. And I never will. The battle has just begun.’
If you have other ideas for how your area could help adjust support processes Monday, please contact ...”
“10 In this is love, not that we have loved God
but that he loved us and sent his Son
to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:10-11)”

or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? (Numbers 23:19)”

Demagogic Writers and the People Who Love Them
“On any day on the internet you can find many top-ranked writers in serious dispute with each other. Sometimes it’s left versus right, but often it’s people on the same side in furious disputation over what in the course of things are rather small points.”

Nothing’s gonna stop me Now

I had blood drawn last month, and the fee as well as the following appointment caused me to miss a payment with Paypal, which I had to cover last night, so the next five days will be close.
JCCC payment deadline for Fall credit classes is August 12 by 5:00 p.m. Go to My Finances to pay or check payment status.
I have a love of good food, but often eat, and overeat, purely to satisfy palate rather than my digestive system, and to that pursuit I am also prone to impulse spending, which may often deplete financial resources almost as soon as they are acquired.
Hannity comments on Megyn Kelly
“If losing his prime time show to Megyn Kelly is rattling Sean Hannity, he isn’t showing it. Hannity weighed in on the report of Kelly’s move to the Fox News 9:00 p.m. prime time block during his radio show, saying he’s ‘very happy’ with the way things are turning out, and…”
“31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger

Why I changed my mind on weed
“Over the last year, Dr. Sanjay Gupta has been working on a new documentary called ‘Weed.’ The title ‘Weed’ may sound cavalier, but the content is not.”
Oh, he changed his opinion ABOUT weed! I thought that he was ON weed when his opinion changed ... freaking prepositional phrases, man.
