Drone Laws and Regulations

These Drone Laws and Regulations are for Recreational Drone and Quadcopter use. These are the National FAA Drone Laws and Regulations, and your state may have their own additions to these Drone Laws and Regulations. Be sure to check the Laws in your own state as they will vary from state to state(currently there are not many state laws in regards to UAV recreational use). Also, keep in mind that existing laws can be revised and Laws new and old can be nullified or created. So, always be sure to check up on your State and National Laws from time to time.

The FAA lists Drones and Quadcopters such as the DJI Phantom 2 as UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), or UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems). There are very few National Laws and Regulations in regards to UAV’s when it comes to recreational use.  The following is a list of the current Drone Laws and Regulations.

 

Rules and Regulations for Recreational Use (as of 3/2015)

  • When flown within 5 miles of an airport, the operator of the aircraft provides the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower (when an air traffic facility is located at the airport) with prior notice of the operation (model aircraft operators flying from a permanent location within 5 miles of an airport should establish a mutually-agreed upon operating procedure with the airport operator and the airport air traffic control tower (when an air traffic facility is located at the airport)). (8900.268)
  • Don’t fly over populated areas. Flying over populated areas without their consent can fall under Reckless Endangerment. i.e. Public areas such as Parks, Downtown Areas, Shopping Plazas, etc.
  • Don’t record video or take photos in contexts where there is an “expectation of privacy.” Such as Private Property or Federal Property, without the individual(s) consent.
  • Check and follow all local laws and ordinances before flying over private property.

Filming in Public 
There is no Reasonable Expectation of Privacy in the USA. So, you may film anyone you want in public without their consent. Unless you’re going to make money off of the video, in which case you would need their consent or simply blur their face out.

Non-UAV Laws that may Apply in your State
Reckless endangerment (a felony)

 

 

 

Health Benefits of Riding a Motorcycle

There are a lot of Health Benefits of Riding a Motorcycle. Research has shown that not only are there physical benefits to riding a motorcycle, but there are mental benefits to riding a motorcycle as well.

Tohoku University studied the effects between brain stimulation and riding a motorcycle. Their research showed…

  • Riding a motorcycle activates prefrontal areas of the brain.
  • Differences in brain use and level of brain stimulation can be observed in motorcyclists who ride regularly and in motorcyclists who have not ridden for extended periods.
  •  Incorporating motorcycle riding into daily life improves various cognitive functions and has positive effects on mental and emotional health such as stress reduction.

The research data has also indicated the prefrontal area does not work as much when driving an automobile.

“Riding motorcycles helps keep drivers young by invigorating their brains,” says Ryuta Kawashima, Laboratory of the Department of Functional Brain Imaging, Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer at Tohoku University.

“Mental care is a very big issue in modern society,” said Kawashima. “I think we made an interesting stir here as data showed you can improve your mental condition simply by using motorbikes to commute.”

The research also shows that commuting by car and train increases stress.

This study was the first time the adverse impact of commuting conditions on work settings was documented.

  • Commuting by car & train elevates stress
  • Carpool passengers experience greater stress than carpool drivers
  • Carpooling was more stressful than solo driving
  • Higher traffic congestion directly relates to less control, less control has a relationship to greater stress.
  • Different levels of stress between men & women.

Benefits of a Beard and Beard Care

Benefits Of A Beard
There are many reasons to grow a beard. and there are also many benefits that come from having a beard. Some great benefits from having a beard are that they keep your face warm in the winter and keep your lips from getting chapped. There’s also a lot of scientific research that shows that a beard is also healthy for you.

A study from the University of Southern Queensland in Australia has found that a big secret to being healthy is a big beard.  They stated the 5 biggest benefits of a beard are…

1) Beards protect your face from the sun.  Men with beards are exposed to 30% fewer UV rays on their face.
2) Beards can trap allergens that might cause asthma attacks.
3) They keep water from leaving your skin, which keeps it moisturized and makes a person’s face AGE more slowly.
4) They raise your neck temperature, which helps fight colds.

Beard Care And Growth
Beard care is important, regardless if you just started growing your beard or have been growing your beard for a while. Some good tips for a healthy beard are too clean your beard with natural soap such as Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap. Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap won’t strip your beard’s natural oils and helps prevent dandruff. Another good product for your beard is Culligan’s Filtered Showerhead. Tap water contains contaminents and chemicals such as chlorine, lead, copper and bacteria. These contaminants will also create irritation and rashes of your skin as well as it will dry out your hair and beard. Skin pores widen while showering, making dermal absorption of chlorine and other chemicals possible. If you have a water softener than there’s no need for a filtered showerhead.

How long a beard grows and how nice it looks also has a lot to do with exercise and how healthy you are. You should get plenty of exercise and eat healthy.

Another great product to help your beard is called Vitabeard. Vitabeard are vitamins specially formulated for facial hair. Below is a list of the benefits you will get from taking Vitabeard.

Prevent Beard Itch
Beta Carotene (Vitamin A) helps reduce the secretion of oil and thus may help prevent the clogging of facial oil glands and the buildup of beard dandruff.

Strong Facial Hair
In addition to many well-known antioxidant/immunity benefits, Vitamin C assists in the production of collagen and can help prevent dry, splitting hair.

Beard Shine & Sheen
Vitamin E assists circulation in the body, bringing oxygen and nutrients in the blood to the hair follicles, and is responsible for nice skin and hair sheen.

Facial Hair Support
Often called the “hair vitamins,” B Vitamins are essential to hair growth and quality. VitaBeard™ packs a complete set, and lots of it. Additionally, B Vitamins play a vital role in energy production.

Beard Growth
Biotin, also known as Vitamin H (for hair!), aids in cell growth and many other metabolic reactions in the body. Biotin is essential for healthy hair and higher quantities may help prevent hair loss in some men.

Prevent Hair Loss
Zinc can prevent hair loss, and is vital for immune system wellness. Easily depleted, Zinc deficiency is often the cause of many hair and skin issues, including slow facial hair growth and facial hair falling out.

Healthy Facial Hair
A natural sulfur compound, MSM is essential for optimum health and helps to nourish your facial hair and skin.

Horsetail Extract
Containing the highest known content of silicon in any herb, Horsetail Extract strengthens hair follicles to grow stronger and healthier hair.

Prevent Gray Hair
Supplementing with Para-Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA) can prevent hair from going gray and may restore gray hair to its original color if the graying was caused by stress or a nutritional deficiency.

Motorcycle Care and Proper Detailing

One of my passions are motorcycles and one of the most important things when it comes to keeping your motorcycle in excellent looking condition is motorcycle care and proper detailing.

I ride my Harley-Davidson every where. Which means it gets dirty fast and requires me to maintain proper motorcycle care and proper detailing of my Harley-Davidson every weekend. Below is a list of the best motorcycle care products on the market. If you haven’t tried them yet, I highly suggest you pick them in order to get your harley-davidson to the look and shine that it deserves.

Motorcycle Care and Proper Detailing

If you do not have a water softener than you’re constantly battling with water spots after washing your motorcycle. The best way to get rid of those water spots is with the Mr. Clean Carwash System. As for the cleaning products, I would only recommend Meguiar’s as there are no better automotive cleaning products on the market. You can purchase a complete Meguiar’s automotive Gold Class detailing kit here. Be sure to always dry off your motorcycle with the Absorber Shammy Cloth.
