Often times, a PDF’s pagination doesn’t match the pagination as displayed in document. For example, a document containing caption, contents and authorities pages, may have its first narrative page set 7 pages into the file. This makes navigation problematic.
Starting this summer, Johannes Oerlemans of Utrecht University and his colleagues will blow artificial snow onto a small glacier at the foot of Diavolezzafirn, in the south-eastern part of Switzerland. The hope is that a thin white sheet of snow will increase the sunlight reflected, and thus protect the ice underneath from melting, Oerlemans explained at the European Geosciences Union on Thursday (Apr. 27). If this $100,000 pilot project is successful, researchers hope they can raise funding to use the technique to protect the Morteratsch glacier, a huge tourist attraction that’s considered a national treasure—but is shrinking.

Traffic, road work and accidents all complicate the UPS delivery schedule, but none of these land-based impediments should deter a drone, right?
UPS announced today that it has successfully delivered a package in Florida using an autonomous drone that launched from one of its delivery trucks. The test is the first step in what the company hopes could one day become a more routine use of drones for package delivery.
UPS is betting the driver-drone pairing will double their efficiency. The driver can complete one delivery and dispatch the drone to another, later rendezvousing at some point along the return route.
yeah, but how will the drone look in brown shorts?
