In the western states the Feds own close to half the land vs the eastern states they only own less than 5%

Not really the point is it? Kind of like saying a Mom should not get custody of her child because she can't afford it. It's their state, their land, their problem if there is one. TM

Huh? Was this tongue in cheek? Why should the eastern states get to own most of the land in their states but the federal government gets to keep close to half the land in the western states? TM

You knew it was coming. Presently the few states that have gone down that path only require you to comply if you company exceeds a certain threshold. In this case the state set it at somothing like 100K. For small companies the book keeping and reporting ... more »

Yup, they always talk like there's always going to be only 1 bad guy. How we got to such a messed up society is beyond me.

If the article in the link from ted is accurate, someone who gets 100% on their selection test and is told "no good"? "As we reported in 2016, the allegations of discrimination stem from the FAA’s change in ATC hiring practices in 2013. Before that time, ... more »

Also, when you use a 2 part epoxy you can adjust the final product by adjusting the ratio. Don't vary too much or you'll ruin the product. Cheers

I've had good luck with 2 part epoxy. Check the BonStone line. They are pricey but worth it. Our stone business has used their products for 15 years.

A bit of a u turn there. First you tried to posit that the change was to emulate traits of the most successful controllers and now you all but admit that it's nothing more than to promote diversity. So the issue is this. The FAA has an "approved curriculum" ... more »

Since the story was about screening to even get considered to go further, it wasn't really forgotten. So your position is they are telling a big fat lie? Because our government would never do something stupid like that or lie to us about it. TM
