Drag Racing A Go For New Season In Riverhead

RIVERHEAD, NY — Rev your engines, it’s a go: The Riverhead Town board voted Wednesday to approve dates for drag racing this season at Enterprise Park at Calverton. Acccording to Riverhead Town Supervisor Yvette Aguiar, two separate proposals were before the town board. Peter Scalzo, who presented his “Race Track, Not Street,” series last year, is back this year for a Spring Classic on April 2, 3,9, 10 and 16. If there is a rain-out during that series, guests can redeem their ticket for any event later in the series, Scalzo said. Find out what’s happening in Riverhead with free, real-time updates from Patch.

Riverhead green-lights EPCAL drag racing events for 2022

Drag racing at the Calverton Enterprise Park got a green light for 2022 from the Riverhead Town Board Wednesday. The board approved four events to be organized by André Baxter and Peter Scalzo, who both held separate events at EPCAL last year. All events are scheduled to be held on the 10,000-foot, town-owned runway on the former Grumman site which, while rarely used, is still an active runway. Baxter held his 2021 event on the 10,000-foot runway, which was shut down to air traffic on the weekend of his event. Scalzo’s series of events last year took place on the 7,000-foot runway, which is inactive. [See prior coverage: Riverhead eyes drag racing return in 2022] The first event of the year, “Scrambul: Cold Fusion,” is organized by Baxter and is scheduled to take place on the… Source link

Bob Saget and open source license compliance

Unique open source licenses provide amusement for developers but they create extra work for legal teams overseeing a company’s IP. Several of my open source friends had the same reaction when they heard of the death of Bob Saget. Sadly, the actor/comedian passed away last week at a relatively young age, and with him went an increment of open source license risk. Wait… what? Yes, it’s true. I was only vaguely aware of Saget when he was at his most famous as the father on the 1980s/90s sitcom Full House. At the time I was too busy with my career and filling my own house to watch a lot of TV. His role in the popular series was rather wholesome and a stark contrast to his fairly raunchy standup act. But the flame of his fame achieved a little extra glow in the open source world in… Source link

Ongoing dispute over the origins of COVID-19 raises a prickly question: Should consensus play a role in science?

The authority of scientific institutions Scientific expertise is elitist, in the sense that the vast majority of us are not qualified to practice science any more than the vast majority of us are qualified to practice law or medicine or commercial aviation. As a result, most people are barred from active participation in scientific institutions —publishing in scientific journals, presenting at scientific conferences, and teaching university-level science courses. The barriers to entry into science are, and ought to be, high. This is not what makes science unique; it’s what makes it a form of expertise like any other. One of the things that doesmake science unique, however, is the role that consensus plays in establishing these barriers. A scientific consensus helps to define a… Source link

Wheels are in motion for If Fusion Were That Easy

We’re wisely told to “follow the science” these days, but this notion will take on a whole different meaning in If Fusion Were That Easy, an upcoming point-and-click adventure from Golden Coin Games that will soon be coming to Kickstarter.  Players primarily assume to role of a young physicist name Daniel, who has a penchant for getting himself out of trouble he’s gotten himself into. Cold fusion appears to on the verge of a major breakthrough, and Daniel is working on a just such a reactor when his project begins to “spiral out of control.” Daniel may be the only person who can now avoid disaster, with help from a second playable character named George, but standing in their way is the Clan, a “mysterious association” with other ideas is mind. If the two men are to save the world… Source link

Is It Time For Big Oil To Split Up?

Last October, a hedge fund disclosed a stake worth $750 million in Shell and urged the supermajor to split its fossil fuel business from its renewable energy business in a move that just a decade ago would have seemed, to put it mildly, eccentric. “Shell has too many competing stakeholders pushing it in too many different directions,” the owner of the hedge fund, billionaire Daniel Loeb, wrote to his clients. While the two companies held preliminary talks on the topic, according to Shell, there has been no news on any splits since last October, perhaps because the owner of Third Point is otherwise occupied with shareholder disgruntlement. Yet earlier this month, a former industry voice lent itself to the split-Big-Oil idea: former BP chief executive and current chairman of… Source link

Mourning Betty White In A High Tech World

The following is a transcript of my radar from Tuesday’s edition of “Rising” on HillTV. I learned something truly ridiculous about Betty White in one of the many tributes to her that aired last week. White’s first appearance on television was on an experimental broadcast that aired in 1939. She was 17. It was the same year “Gone With The Wind” and “The Wizard of Oz” were released.  “When people started looking at television, I think they were going to have a box in their room, everybody was like, ‘Yeah, it’s another passing fad,’” Frank Scherma of the Television Academy told NBC last week. What makes this fact about White’s life ridiculous is that it puts into perspective the short life of a technology that feels old. Her career spanned… Source link
