Reginald Aubrey Fessenden (October 6, 1866 – July 22, 1932) was a Canadian inventor who performed pioneering experiments in radio, including early—possibly the first— transmissions of voice and music. In his later career he received hundreds of patents for devices in fields such as high-powered transmitting, sonar, and television

Teen Safe Driver program

Our System

Giving the keys to your teenage driver is one of the most difficult things you'll ever do as a parent. While teens may drive safely when mom and dad are in the car, crash rates increase dramatically when they’re not.

Fortunately, the Teen Safe Driver Program SM is focused on reversing this trend. Through innovative technology and parent feedback, it’s helping teenagers become safer drivers by dramatically reducing risky behavior on the road.

And the best part is it’s absolutely free for American Family’s auto insurance customers.

In 2003, 5,240 teens were killed in passenger-vehicle crashes, and 458,000 teens were injured.

Teens are nine times more likely to be in a car crash than their parents.

The crash rate increases 700% when teens are not driving with their parents

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States, accounting for 41% of teen fatalities.

receive a weekly driver report card showing their teen’s performance compared to their peers."

How It Works

Through a six-step process, the Teen Safe Driver Program SM helps turn risky driving behaviors into safe on-road practices.

1. Capturing Data

A small device placed behind the rearview mirror captures both an interior and exterior view of your teen’s vehicle. When the auto experiences an erratic movement – extreme braking, sharp cornering, sudden acceleration or a collision, for example – the recorder captures the ten seconds before and after the incident.View a Larger Image

2. Sending It In

The 20 seconds of video that make up this “event” are transferred wirelessly to DriveCam’s Event Analysis Center.

3. Analyzing the Information

The video is analyzed and scored by trained professionals who add valuable tips for preventing similar incidents.

4. Communicating with Participants

Parents and teens then log in to a secure website to view this data. Parents also receive a weekly driver report card showing their teen’s performance compared to their peers.

5. Offering Coaching Tips

The reports enable moms and dads to praise safe driving practices and coach their sons and daughters on specific problem areas.

6. Returning to the Road a Safer Driver

Teens participating in the program have demonstrated remarkable improvement in their driving habits. For examples, see our Proven Results.

Getting Results

In early 2006, young drivers from 54 families in Minnesota and Wisconsin were enrolled in a Teen Safe Driver test project. After nine months in the program, teens averaged a 70 percent decrease in the frequency and severity of high-risk driving events.

The root causes for events were typically a failure to stay focused on the driving environment, failure to maintain safe following distances and excessive speed.

Parents reviewed driving mishaps with their teens and coached them to improve their driving habits. In addition, within the first six weeks of the program seatbelt use by drivers and passengers improved from 50 percent to nearly 100 percent.

Most notable in the test project was teen driver support for the program. Repeatedly, teens were surprised to see how their actions contributed to risky events. At the moment of the event they frequently attributed the problem to another driver’s actions, but the video objectively showed their contribution – being distracted, following too close or driving aggressively.

Additionally, under a research grant funded by American Family Insurance, the University of Iowa studied the effect of DriveCam video feedback on a group of 25 rural Iowa teens. After just over a month, the riskiest drivers in the study reduced their unsafe habits by 88 percent.

Predictable and Preventable

When parents are in the vehicle, teen drivers rarely crash. However, when mom and dad are taken out of the picture:

The combination of inexperience and overconfidence has led to thousands of deaths on America’s highways.

Think your teen is immune?

Research shows there is no way to predict which teens will crash and which will not. Accident statistics indicate no correlation to grade point average, participation in sports or involvement with any other extracurricular activities.

However, the Teen Safe Driver Program SM has proven results that are dramatic and immediate.

10 Engineering Rules Applied To DIY Business

By Ryan Van Etten on 06/10/2010


1. K.I.S.S.

Keep it simple, stupid! Forget the frills and the cheap thrills. Focus on the heart of the matter.

2. Identify.

Identify a problem before attempting to solve it. Visualize everything involved. Draw a diagram. With a clear view, it’s much easier to see a solution. Ask, “what do I already know about this?”, “what resources do I have?”, and “what are my unknowns?”

3. Reduce.

Real-world problems are complex. They often have multiple solutions. Simplify them by estimating, approximating, and/or making objective assumptions (not guesses). Think big picture. Be realistic.

4. Learn.

Discuss how others have solved similar problems—trust history. Brainstorm. Get ideas on the table before attempting to assemble them. Think outside of the box. Keep an open mind. Let the ideas flow and then connect the dots. Trust science. Hypothesize. Experiment. Do the math.

5. Design.

Design solutions to bend but not break. Be prepared to adapt to meet limitations. Shape your solutions to fit their purpose—i.e. forms follows function. Conform to standards that have passed the test of time—e.g. the golden ratio. Seek balance. Trust human nature.

6. Source.

Use what’s available first. Don’t build-from-scratch parts/tools/services that already exist. If something is readily available, then it’s more efficient to just buy it. Take advantage of free tools/services (especially on the web). Avoid complex logistics. Use interchangeable parts.

7. Optimize.

Apply force where it will have the most impact—e.g. concentrate promotional efforts where your customers are. However don’t use too much force—e.g. don’t kill an ant with a hand grenade. Keep your safety factor within reason. Use leverage instead of brute force. Prioritize.

8. Test.

Check your answers—do they make sense? Let your peers help keep you in check. Test on a small-scale first. Test early and often. Don’t be afraid to f**k up, because that’s what testing is for, and if you’re afraid of failing you won’t get anywhere. Be safe—wear protective gear when needed!

9. Iterate.

No one gets everything right the first time, and the optimal solution may change over time. Keep testing and tweaking based on the previous iterations and feedback. Never assume that you can’t make it better or more efficient. Learn from mistakes. Listen. Observe. React.

10. Amplify.

Start small, but think big. Once your business is field-tested and rock-solid, prepare to amp it up. Be careful not to spread yourself too thin in the process. Conquer one city before taking on the planet. Trust what works. Assess risk vs. reward. If you get in a jam, remember the basics.

It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff

By Peter Walsh

How to get a handle on all those things we own one step at a time. Drawing from many years of organizing and decluttering experience the author presents a big picture holistic view of getting rid of clutter and thereby improving all aspects of your life.

Product Description

When Peter Walsh, organizational guru of TLC's hit show Clean Sweep and a regular contributor to The Oprah Winfrey Show, appeared on national television shows and told people how they could reclaim their lives from the suffocating burden of their clutter, the response was overwhelming. People flooded Peter's website ( with success stories about how his book had changed their lives.

Peter's unique approach helped people everywhere learn to let go of the emotional and psychological clutter that was literally and figuratively choking the life out of their homes.

With his good humor and reassuring advice, Peter shows you how to face the really big question: What is the vision for the life you want to live? He then offers simple techniques and a step-by-step plan to assess the state of your home, prioritize your possessions, and let go of the clutter you have been holding on to that has kept you from living the life you imagine. The result is freed-up space, less stress, and more energy for living a happier, richer life every day.

Science Rules:

F.D.A. Is Urged to Set Limits for Levels of Salt in Food

from the New York Times (Registration Required)

High levels of salt in supermarket and restaurant foods should be declared unsafe by the federal government, according to a new report that called on the Food and Drug Administration to mandate maximum levels of sodium in food.

Because elevated sodium intake contributes to high blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease and other health problems, a federal effort to cut salt in the food people eat could prevent 100,000 deaths a year, said the report, by the Institute of Medicine.

"The vast majority of the U.S. population is consuming sodium at levels that are simply too high to be safe," said Jane E. Henney, a professor of medicine at the University of Cincinnati and a former F.D.A. commissioner, who was chairwoman of the committee that wrote the report. Salt is currently considered a safe food ingredient, and there is no limit to how much of it that companies can put in their products. 

Researchers Solve the Mystery of the Zodiacal Light

from ScienceNOW Daily News

Zodiacal light--the faint white glow that stretches across the darkest skies, tracing the same path the sun takes--has mystified scientists for centuries. They've known that it is sunlight reflected from a disk of dust spanning the inner solar system from Mercury to Jupiter. They just didn't know where the dust came from--until now.

Every day, Earth sweeps up about 140 tons of cosmic dust. The particles are mostly 100 micrometers to 200 micrometers in size and made of silicate minerals. Most burn up in the atmosphere, although some survive and end up in micrometeorite collections. To figure out how this dust behaves in the inner solar system, planetary dynamicist David Nesvorný of Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, and five colleagues set up a computer model.

In addition to being subject to the tug of planetary gravity, microscopic particles orbiting the sun are pushed outward by the pressure of sunlight, dragged inward by their own radiative emissions, and worn down by collisions with other particles. Nesvorný and his colleagues followed particles released in their model from various types of comets or from asteroids and compared the particles' fates with observations of the zodiacal dust cloud. 

Europe Finds Clean Energy in Trash, but U.S. Lags

from the New York Times (Registration Required)

HORSHOLM, Denmark -- The lawyers and engineers who dwell in an elegant enclave here are at peace with the hulking neighbor just over the back fence: a vast energy plant that burns thousands of tons of household garbage and industrial waste, round the clock.

Far cleaner than conventional incinerators, this new type of plant converts local trash into heat and electricity. Dozens of filters catch pollutants, from mercury to dioxin, that would have emerged from its smokestack only a decade ago.

In that time, such plants have become both the mainstay of garbage disposal and a crucial fuel source across Denmark, from wealthy exurbs like Horsholm to Copenhagen's downtown area. Their use has not only reduced the country's energy costs and reliance on oil and gas, but also benefited the environment, diminishing the use of landfills and cutting carbon dioxide emissions. 

China and West Virginia: A Tale of Two Mine Disasters

from Time

Just as West Virginia families were hit with word of a deadly mine disaster on April 5, relatives of miners missing after a flood in China's coal belt welcomed some unexpected news. After eight days trapped underground, 115 coal miners in Shanxi province were dramatically rescued. In China, where mine disasters are grimly commonplace, the rescue was trumpeted as a miracle. And in the U.S., where mine safety is sometimes seen as a question that was resolved decades ago, the death of at least 25 men is a painful reminder of the risks they face.

The explosion at the Massey Energy company's Upper Big Branch mine was the deadliest U.S. mining disaster in 26 years. The U.S. is one of the safest places for the profession; last year the country recorded 34 fatalities, an all-time low, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

China, one of the world's deadliest places for mining, has seen improvements in the safety of its mines, albeit from the high numbers of accidents in past years. In 2009, 2,631 people died in Chinese mines, down from a peak of 6,995 in 2002. 

Why Cell Phone Talkers Are Annoys-Makers (future show get Bob Newheart Phone Comedy Recording)

from Science News

They're everywhere--yammering on the subway, yukking it up on sidewalks, yakking away in restaurants. It's the invasion of the cell phone slinging, super-annoying attention snatchers!

Cell phone users irritate so mightily because their background chatter forcibly yanks listeners' attention away from whatever they're doing, says psychology graduate student Lauren Emberson of Cornell University. Overhearing someone spewing intermittent exclamations into a handheld gadget lacks the predictability of hearing a two-way exchange and thus proves inherently unsettling, Emberson and her colleagues report in an upcoming Psychological Science.

That makes it harder to focus on one's own immediate business, be it reading a book, contemplating a work presentation or driving a car, the researchers propose. 


The Trail Head:

Canada Trails

Canada has a long history of trails. From the first footpaths of the original natives to today's Trans Canada Trail, trails have played a part in our lives, first for commerce and transportation, now for recreation and adventure. In every region of the country there are trails to take you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Canada is in the process of constructing two coast-to-coast recreation trails: the Trans-Canada Trail and the National Hiking Trail. Several other long-distance hiking trails are either already existing or are under development. Completed in 1967, Ontario's 770-km long Bruce Trail is the grandaddy of them all, stretching from Niagara to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula. The International Appalachian Trail is an 1,045-km extension of its southern counterpart, reaching from Mt Katahdin in Maine across New Brunswick to the tip of the Gaspé.

In this Web site, the word "hiking" is used to describe trails with a natural surface. Trails with a gravel or paved surface are listed on the multi-usesections of this site. Trails shared with mountain bikers are in the Mountain Biking section. Many parks throughout Canada have hiking trails but, due to space limitations, this guide lists only areas with 10 km or more of trails.
