... be corrupting. That is why they set up our political system with many checks and balances so that one branch could not dominate the other two. The founding fathers feared that the one man in control could turn out to be a tyrant. For this reason, they feared to have a standing army of professionally trained soldiers. The founding fathers set up the Second Amendment for the possibility that the government ... we have what the founding fathers feared the most, a national standing army with the President as Commander. We have no State Militias that could give any resistance if President Clinton tried to take military control and ordered troops to enforce tyrannical laws. Fortunately, this has not happened. The problem is that firearms have been a part of this nation from the beginning. In fact Congress at that time did not ... and more regulations on firearms being passed, the Second Amendment is the only thing groups like the NRA have to hold on to.

85: Problems in Air Traffic Control and Proposed Solutions
Problems in Air Traffic Control and Proposed Solutions In northern California this summer, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) unintentionally performed it's first operational test of "free flight"; aviation without direct air traffic control.

Although Oakland is only the 16th busiest ARTCC, it's responsible for the largest block of airspace of any ATC facility; 18 million square miles. Oakland directs all upper-level flight from ...

In the ... and stress which can impede Liveware performance. Finally, dynamic allocation refers to an operator-controlled process where the pilot can determine which functions should be delegated to the machine, and which he or she should control at any time. Again, this allocation model is only theoretical, and often a design process will encompass all, or sometimes none of these philosophies (Sanders & McCormick, 730-4). Basic system design also delegates Liveware performance ... is to conduct testing of the proposed design and evaluate the human factors input and interfaces between all components involved. An application of this process to each system design will enhance the operators ability to control the system within desired specifications. Some of the specific design characteristics can be found in subsequent chapters. IV. Biomechanics In December of 1981, a Piper Comanche aircraft temporarily lost directional control in gusty conditions ...
