13 Takeaways from The White House Workshop
The White House launched a new effort Tuesday to help increase the use of drones and showcased how government agencies have become a proving ground for a wide array of new drone concepts and technologies.

The workshop, hosted by the Office of Science and Technology Policy, outlined some interesting use cases for drone technology that the Federal government is leading the way on, as well as an aggressive agenda for boosting the profile of drones in the U.S. economy. Here are 13 interesting facts that came out of the workshop.

1.The FAA has registered more than 520,000 drone operators in the last eight months. “To put that in perspective, we have only 320,000 registered manned aircraft on the aircraft registry of the United States and it took us 100 years to get there,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta.

2.The size of the consumer Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) market is estimated to be approximately $16 billion. The commercial UAV market is projected to reach $4 billion by 2020. Over the next decade, the estimates are that drones will contribute approximately $80 billion to the U.S. economy.

3.To be able to safely operate multiple drones at once is going to become a critical factor for commercialization. Potential uses for multiple drones include search-and-rescue operations, delivery, or inspections of large structures, such as bridges. Current tests have successfully managed 100 drones through a single operator console. Work is underway to be able to scale that to potentially 1,000 or more drones, according to Intel Corp. CEO Bryan Krzanich.

4.There remain a number of significant regulatory challenges to integrating drones into the national airspace system, including privacy, spectrum usage, safety, and scalability. We are literally at the edge of developing drones that operators cannot run into other objects, Krzanich said.

5.Lockheed Martin has developed ground collision avoidance software for the F-16 fighter jet in the event of pilot loss of consciousness or control. That software has saved at least two pilots during recent operations. That type of technology can be applied to an unmanned system to prevent it from entering a restricted area, said Robert Ruszkowski, director of Advanced Air Dominance and Unmanned Systems Aeronautics at Lockheed Martin. I think there’s a lot of technology thats on the shelf, its ready to go and its been proven.

6.Drones have become a critical tool for the Department of Interior, which manages 500 million acres of land in the U.S. and 1.7 billion acres on the outer continental shelf. Drones are contributing to Interiors various missions of fire suppression, mine inspections, oil spill response, and critical infrastructure monitoring.

7.The future of unmanned systems at Interior includes a mix of in-house and contractor operated UAVs, a cloud strategy for data processing, and a 50 percent increase in DOI aviation users. By FY 2019, DOI will have in place procedures for rapid data processing of UAV-acquired data using the cloud. This will dramatically reduce the time needed to process imagery at a local office.

8.DOI will share near-real-time fire location information with the public by July 2017 as part of a multifaceted effort to prevent unauthorized drone incursions over active wildfires.

9.The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is actively researching high-altitude, long-endurance UAVs that can be used for real-time weather data in the event of a problem with a satellite system.

10.Within the next year, NOAA plans to deploy an optionally piloted UAV. This is a medium-altitude aircraft that will be used to collect precise gravity measurements. NOAA collects gravity measurements across the entire United States and converts them into vertical elevation data of the surface. That data is used for flood plain mapping and preparing for hurricanes, tsunamis, and storm surges along coastal areas.

11.Within the next few years, were looking at how to use [UAVs] to collect weather data in real time and be able to put that data into our weather forecast models, said Robbie Hood, NOAAs unmanned aircraft systems director. NOAA has a study underway now using both a high-altitude UAV and a UAV that can be launched from a manned aircraft that can fly above storms and provide higher resolution data than is currently available via satellites.

12.NASA and the FAA are launching a data exchange working group under the UAS Traffic Management (UTM) Research Transition Team (RTT) to address the challenge of coordinating information between operators, entities that use UTM to perform services, and the FAA. This group will develop a consistent format for data to be shared across the affected parties with recommendations slated for release in FY 2017.

13.The United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General plans to publish new findings and analysis on the publics rapidly evolving opinion of drone delivery as a potential future logistics technology.

A rare presentation of alkaptonuria: Prostatitis Treatment Extensive prostatic calculi CPPS with highlight of stones found in a unique paraprostatic urethral diverticulum Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome .

We present a case of Alkaptonuria Chronic Prostatitis (AKU) presented with severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to extensive prostatic calculi deposited in BPH the para prostatic diverticulum. Prostatic calculi are seen in chronic prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome Prostatitis and benign prostate hyperplasia; however, in patients with AKU, prostatic calculi and/or calcifications are more extensive. Prostatitis Symptoms A para prostatic diverticulum is a rare entity in males; however, it should be considered in patients with AKU based on this case report Blood in the semen .

A patient with Blood in the Urine AKU presented with extensive prostatic calculi that were deposited Burning While Urinating in para prostatic diverticulum, urethra and urinary bladder. Difficulty Urinating The stones were successfully managed endoscopically.

Paraprostatic diverticula or urethral diverticula Pain While Urinating are rare entities. They may be congenital or acquired due to recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) Frequent Urination or distal urethral obstruction. The distal obstruction of the urethra secondary to stones was the most likely etiology of the paraprostatic diverticulum in our case. The possible mechanisms behind stone formation in our case were chronic stasis and urinary infection within a urethral diverticulum proximal to the urethral obstruction.

This case sums a rare case of AKU and Painful ejaculation paraprostatic diverticular stones; in addition, it highlights the role endoscopic management of prostatolithiasis in AKU patient Prostatitis Treatment.

From brought the first curry shoes basketball, a garage at the actual match: each other outlined a perfect diamond entrance, teammate Steve Blake flew to check out up, left the clippers defend darren collison (microblogging) the length between two steps powering their closely, Danny granger would be the only defender in tow. This is the storage superior court intuition and knowing that embodies: his shot assortment. He seems to realize the defensive player with the ideas, can predict the next move, then strike before hand. "When other people are doing gesture, garage within judgment, and the activity, this is Stephen is the better place, in this respect this league may be the best. Find field space, know the spot that the defense space will occur, it is the key from the art of his pictures. Because no matter just how good your shots, a lot more exquisite technology, no area is useless. "ESPN's Mark thorpe, once wrote in his article.


Garage with great care stephen curry shoes observing the defense, he in addition have reason to be therefore cautious. Before this, the warriors have had missed 12 goals in 13 shots in past times, is now 33 in order to 37 behind the clippers, disturbed from the right leg muscle stress of garage after only one of 4. For shed himself, this ball is vital: before a season, he hit an increasing in NBA history with 272 grains of a few points, if again founded three points today, his three points this year hit number will meet or exceed 200 mark. So that library might be the sixth in a row has at the very least two season hit 190 grains of three participants, at the same moment, still can have a few points to continuous hit game streak still 54 games - it's going to be the warriors team record record.


"I like everything kd shoes related to the shooting, " garage once said in the interview, "but with the best especially in perfect hand posture. When your body's in good rhythm, from standing in the feet in the grass, his hands to complete an effort, all series of joint actions will probably be calm and smooth, just like waves. It's a amazing feeling. ".
