Islanders Prep for Disaster:

E-mail Print PDF
Two feet of snow covered the Island, when suddenly every Vashon resident and business lost power. Phones went down; ferries stopped running, and the Island found itself gripped in a disaster unlike any it had faced before. That was the hypothetical disaster scenario that played out on Saturday, when 200 Islanders converged on Burton and Vashon town for a drill to put the Island's emergency procedures into action. They maneuvered downed trees and rescued carbon-monoxide poisoned dummies from a cabin at Camp Burton. They sent ham radio messages from fire station to fire station. They transmitted drill messages and news bulletins on Voice of Vashon, the local radio station, while informing listeners the dispatch was a drill, lest those who tuned in be caught up in a "War of the Worlds"-like hysteria. The hundreds who put the Island's emergency skills to the test found that Vashon is well prepared for a blizzard -- communication was nearly seamless, coordination among entities was similarly smooth, and each group performed its designated functions well, officials said.

Ham Radio Hobby Calls Men to Island Off Puerto Rican Coast:

E-mail Print PDF
OTTUMWA -- There are times when the demands of a hobby don’t necessarily make sense to the rest of the world. This may be one of those times. But Glen Kesselring of Ottumwa doesn’t care. He’s too excited about going to an uninhabited island off the Puerto Rican coast to work a ham radio station for a week. Kesselring’s trip to Desecheo Island is part of a two-week period during which ham radio operators will broadcast from a place usually off-limits to the public. The military used Desecheo Island as a bombing range until the early 1950s, and then as a survival training site. The island now falls under the purview of the Fish and Wildlife Service, which restricts access. Despite the small size and complete lack of human residents, Desecheo has its own ham radio designation. That’s important to amateur radio operators, many of whom collect contacts from as many sites as they can. Kesselring compares that to other hobbyists’ quests for rarities. “You look for the rock that’s very rare, you look for the stamp that’s very rare,” he said. Desecheo fits that description for ham enthusiasts.

Turkey tops countries demanding content removal: Twitter

E-mail Print PDF

Photo illustration of Twitter logo on an iPad display next to a Turkish flagBy Humeyra Pamuk and Jonny Hogg ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey filed over five times more content removal requests to Twitter than any other country in the second half of 2014, data published by the micro-blogging site showed on Monday. The figures are likely to reinforce fears of a crackdown on Internet freedom in the predominantly Muslim NATO state where President Tayyip Erdogan has said he is determined to stamp out what he sees as illegal online activities. Twitter's transparency report showed Turkey filed 477 content removal requests between July and December, an increase of more than 150 percent compared to the first six months of 2014. Russia and Germany followed with 91 and 43 removal requests respectively.
