Get a big vat with a sealed lid and immerse the whole thing in mineral oil. It conducts heat much better than air cooling. If the vat is big enough, convection will cool it properly; otherwise get a circulating pump.
NHTSA has recommendations for lots of traffic factors... why not yellow lights?
Just Googled it and it turns out that there is a manual:
Fact: Yellow light time is set to optimize safety and traffic flow. Federal
guidelines recommend yellow lights last from 3 to 6 seconds. Local authorities
set the duration based on many factors including: traffic volume, speed, roadway
grade and intersection design.

Found this interesting information:
ANSWER: Analysis of data in the most comprehensive study to date (Safety Evaluation of Red-Light Cameras, FHWA HRT-05-048, April 2005) from seven jurisdictions (Baltimore; Charlotte; El Cajon, CA; Howard County, MD; Montgomery County, MD; San Diego; San Francisco) at 132 intersections using red-light cameras found:
A 25 percent decrease in total right-angle crashes;
A 16 percent decrease in injury right-angle crashes;
A 15 percent increase in total rear-end crashes; and
A 24 percent increase in injury rear-end crashes.
Net result is about a wash with a slight advantage to the cameras.
Unfortunately the track record of citizens stopping crime with guns is poor. The gun is much more likely to end up harming someone innocent.
I don't even think police should have guns. They end up shooting innocent people or killing criminals for property crimes and I don't think capital punishment is appropriate for property crimes.
I think it's stupid to believe that you can defend anyone's civil liberties with a gun.
I don't think that many (most, all) gun owners want to kill kids at school.
However, guns end up killing lots of people... by accident or intention. They are inherently dangerous. They are, after all designed to kill and they are very effective.
So, the question becomes... Why do you own a gun?
Why isn't there a national standard for the duration of the yellow light?
Seems like it would eliminate a lot of confusion.
It looks like it relies heavily on store and forward with multiple retries to avoid the problems with poorly connected networks.
(Disclaimer: I did read TFA)
Big mistake... Ebola loves Spam... it's probably multiplying in there right now.
I don't think there is any recommended sugar dose. You can get by just fine with zero sugar.
Have had family members in NZ earthquake and a few other misc disasters. Facebook was the best way to find out if they were ok.
From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...
"A 2007 study by Jessica Reyes at Amherst College stated: "By the year 2020, when the effects of the Clean Air Act and Roe v. Wade would be complete, violent crime could be as much as 70% lower than it would be if lead had remained in gasoline, and as much as 35-45% lower than it would be if abortion had never been legalized. At the same time, history suggests that other unknown factors would have increased crime by perhaps 3-5% per year.""

Arthur: And men.
Arthur: Best laid plans of mice and men.
Slartibartfast: Oh. No, I don't think men had much to do with it.
The Texas case just exposes (again) the fallacy that the US has the best healthcare in the world.
This hospital made too many amateur mistakes to count:
- Sent the guy home with antibiotics when he presented with a fever after travel to Ebola infected area.
- Did not institute full isolation protocol until three days after he was admitted (thus exposing nurses and other patients to the disease).
- Did not follow CDC protocol even after confirmed Ebola.
Wow! This is really news!
Here we have a rich guy who while he agrees that income inequality might be bad, proposes that we don't tax (his) capital but instead tax consumption which is the absolute most regressive tax possible. This can only make income inequality worse.
What a clown!
Sounds like the cruise from hell.
