Well I'm not saying it was aliens.

I'd have thought the main reason was that technology moves incredibly quite slowly and takes forever to catch up with the "real world" when it comes to such vital systems as black box recordings.
Microphones are much simpler devices than cameras, and in any case they are a required part of the kit for normal operation of a flight.
Should video streams captured inside the plane become a standard part of aviation safety measures?
Asking a question like that makes it sound like you think someone just needs to flip a switch and it's done.
view objects clearly in darkness up to 50 meters away.
Define "darkness." It obviously wasn't completely dark. Was it dark like a moonless night dark, or dark like an interior hallway dark?
Secondly, how do you define night vision in metres?
Secondly, it's an important biomedical advancement made by citizen scientists.
Is it important, and is it even an advancement?
They didn't come up with the idea and the effect was already known.
Their idea was inspired by a patent filed in 2012, claiming that if you mix insulin, Ce6 and saline to someone’s eye, their retina absorbs much more light and they can see much better in the dark. The patent also mentioned that instead of insulin, you can use a substance called dimethlysulfoxide (DMSO). The Science for Masses guys thought “Why not use both?”.
So their sole contribution appears to be the idea of using both insulin and DMSO (for no readily apparent reason and probably to no actual benefit).
Thirdly, there's an organization [scienceforthemasses.org] which is a nexus for citizen science.
Said "organization" appears to be two guys with unknown qualifications and "our fair share of body mod tools for when the mood strikes us." Their "paper" looks more like a blog post to me, and their "tests" were subjective at very best (something they do at least admit).
I'd half expect their next "paper" to be a study on the effects of downing a glass of diet coke after eating a packet of mentos.
The test subject's eyesight returned to normal the next day.
Yeah, so far.
The summary goes on about how he uses Instagram and Skype, but doesn't actually get to the point brought up in the headline, which is that the guy does use email, on his Blackberry, apparently without knowing what it is.
I was pointing out the parts that itzly apparently missed when critiquing your suggestion.
How about a panic button outside the cockpit with the same code as the entry door that only the pilots know?
It's not just you. It does not read like an Onion article to me, either.
If he can't get broadband, he can't do his job. If he can't do his job, he (probably) can't make his mortgage payments. If he can't make his mortgage payments, he can't live in the house.
So there's quite possibly not much choice about it.
In that campaign, which Kaspersky dubbed DarkHotel.
I think Slashdot is trying to woo the beat poetry crowd.
Yeah, until they turn it into a "household levy" or something
But they haven't. So it's not.
I zoomed in at random and ended up at Pink Eye Bridge. Eww.
Australia Passes Mandatory Data Retention Law
Passes like a bowel movement?

That's obvious, but it still doesn't clarify whatever point it was you were trying to make.
He punched a colleague. He got sacked. Seems pretty reasonable. But it's also pretty much the ultimate sanction the BBC can impose on him, so I'm really not sure what you're trying to say by comparing it with a much worse hypothetical assault which would still have resulted in him getting sacked, albeit with perhaps a little more alacrity.
