I encourage to read the review of 1917 in Salon.com: ""1917" has one major flaw - it's irresponsibly nationalistic".

The rules on this vary from state to state. In TX, rebates do not reduce the taxable amount, but store and manufacturers discounts and coupons do.

I am not a Facebook user and I don't want Facebook to track me through facial recognition on pictures that others take of me. How can I stop this from happening? Does the use of this information by Facebook constitute commercial use of a photograph (which would require my permission)? And/or, does this exceed the privacy expectation rule that generally limits taking pictures of people without explicit consent (in the US)? In other words, can I reasonably expect to remain anonymous when I am in a public location?

brycesteiner: Probably won't matter in Texas as the universities seem to take without question and use for their on promotion and still make the photographer pay for the attorney fees when they are questioned.

Universities get federal grant money. Since this will be a federal court, simply ask the judge to withhold federal grants from the university in the amount that is awarded to you by the judge in case the university does not pay.

LoneTree1: It all sounds pretty harmless, despite the paranoid response. You really going to put someone in jail for a year or fine him $100,000, for flying a toy airplane and dropping leaflets?

The law is written to punish drone flying in the vicinity of airports where the lives of hundreds could be in jeopardy. Jail time would be appropriate in that case. A lesser punishment can be handed out be the judge in other violations of this law.

PeterAustin: The loser here? The environment! How many of these defective batteries will be properly recycled? Probably a fraction of those that were shipped. In my city, recycling of such batteries requires a trip to the hazardous waste collection facility. What a burden. Other cities and counties may not even collect such batteries. Rather than telling customers to recycle locally, B&H needs to provide a postage-paid envelop that allows customers a free return shipment of these batteries for proper recycling.

Responding to N467RX: If B&H can ship a battery to you, they ought to be able to arrange for a return shipment. In fact, any vendor of rechargeable batteries should be required to accept return of used batteries free of charge including shipping costs.

Digital cameras are becoming a mature technology, and therefore sales slow down. People upgrade to replace worn-out equipment, but not because of technical improvements. Remember when you upgraded to a new PC because new ones were faster? PC sales peaked in 2011. That decline has somewhat stabilized. Buyers replace PCs now when they stop working, not because they are too slow. The same trend will control camera sales.

The overall negativity of these comments is disappointing. If the feed encourages young people to enjoy the outdoors in a responsible manner it is a positive outcome. We need more people who enjoy and stand up for the environment for effective long-term protection.

Competition is always good. It benefits all, even those who decide to stay with the established but overpriced software tools.

A rental car company does not hand over a car without the guarantee of a credit card company. Why is this different here? It seems KitSplit is extremely negligent and potentially liable.

The test does not replicate the airflow in front and over and under of a wing moving at fast velocity. The object approached by the moving wing would tend to be deflected either above or below the wing and resulting in a glancing impact rather the frontal impact shown here by propelling the object against a stationary wing.

It will help directing casual photographers to the same locations we see repeatedly on Instagram. That means less foot traffic at other locations. The app could be useful to figure out which locations to avoid.

This is obviously much bigger for PETA than the copyright issue. This is to set a legal precedent that animals have legal rights of a person, for instance to sue labs that conduct medical experiments on animals on behalf of the animals. The courts are weary of these attempts and want to avoid similar future lawsuits that would only clog the court systems.
