MADD’s “In-Car Searches Will Be Ready in 8 to 10 Years”

In 2006, MADD, the government, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and members of the automotive industry created a panel to encourage and support the development of new technology that would stop drivers from operating a vehicle if drunk.  The result was DADSS or Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety.  DADSS uses tissue spectrometry, a technology that employs an estimation of alcohol in tissue through detection of light absorption and distant spectrometry which uses part of the infrared light spectrum to detect alcohol concentration in the drivers's breath.  In 2008, at MADD’s urging, the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety entered into a...

Big 4th Amendment Win In The United State Supreme Court

Today the Supreme Court of the United States unanimously held that attaching a GPS device to a vehicle and using that GPS device to monitor the movements of the vehicle constitutes a "search" under the Fourth Amendment. Read the decision in United States v. Jones, here.  This decision was one of the most anticipated cases in this Supreme Court term and had many civil liberties proponents holding their breath.  Associate Justice Antonin Scalia said that the government’s installation of a GPS device, and its use to monitor the vehicle’s movements, constitutes a search, meaning that a warrant is required. “By...

Are We Living In The Good ‘Ole Days?

Reduced Crime Rates Recall Golden Era For the past twenty years the United States has been living through a phenomenon.  In a recent Washington Post editorial, Chales Lane wrote, Between 1991 and 2010, the homicide rate in the United States fell 51 percent, from 9.8 per 100,000 residents to 4.8 per 100,000. Property crimes such as burglary also fell sharply during that period; auto theft, once the bane of urban life, dropped an astonishing 64 percent. And FBI data released Dec. 19 show that the trends continued in the first half of 2011. With luck, the United States could soon equal its...

The Drunken Monkey Theory

Why do we Homo sapiens love alcohol? Could it be that our love of alcohol is genetically encoded in our species due to millions of years of evolution?  Fossilized teeth show that between 45 million and 34 million years ago, human ancestors and our closest relatives -gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans - ate a diet that was rich in fruit.  Natural selection favored primates who could detect and appreciate the smell of fruit and out-compete others in its collection.  As the fruit fell from the source and lay on the ground, the yeast on the fruits skin would consume the sugar molecules...
