Also, I saw no mention by Amazon about their concern for the safety of the people who will be living under the threat of the Amazon drones falling out of the air. Maybe that is why Amazon is moving so quickly, their concern for safety is not as the level it should be.

For example. Be transparent with any equipment lists that document what equipment are in the employee's possession. Share the list at least yearly with the employee so there are no surprises (and the resulting badness) if an employee leaves. There is little else that generates ill feelings than an out of date equipment list for an employee (what do you mean I have to turn in that laptop? I turned it in two years ago. What!?!?! You want me to pay for it?
Provide a great work environment so employees don't want to leave.
Look at what you think concerns you when an employee leaves, and then think about what you should do while the person is an active employee to prevent your concerns from occurring.

...Secret Service wants to spend $8 million to build a detailed replica of the White House in Beltsville, Maryland to aid in training officers and agents to protect the real thing....

Would the White House usher have turned off the alert box if there were a replica of the White House to train on? etc., etc.
It is looking as if the Secret Service is piling on requests in this time of scrutiny.
But this sure is a good way to advertise the thyc thing!

Anyone want to wager how long it will be before Microsoft ports Office to Facebook?
... Congress is trying to kick the FAA into moving faster.
You mean the Congress that has been purchased by corporate and other special interests?
