  1. Jason DiRenza, a 10 year old Scout, has loved to tinker with tools and toys, a hobby that propelled him to the national stage with an invention designed to give people more time to escape houses that are filling with deadly carbon monoxide gas. The Connecticut Safety Society honored him for the inclusion of safety, health, and environmental principles and ideologies into his invention, and he also received an award from the judges for the top invention in his judging circle Jason said he got the idea for his invention over lunch one day with his family when a discussion came up ab
  2. I always encourage Scouts to play the "what if" game: when packing for a trip, planning an Eagle project, waking your dog.... Like BP when he was asked, "prepared for what?" and he responded, "why, for any old thing...." I recently watched a fascinating documentary film from about 1922 that showed how the Phiilips Company of Holland made light bulbs, radios, radio vacuum tubes ("Fessenden valves"), loud speakers (Bakelite !), phonographs.... and it struck me, reading thru this thread about safety standards.... One of the reasons OSHA exists is because we procreate so many fewer p

  5. I'm spinning off of the other discussion about making the new Cyberchip requirements work for crossovers. The question is what can a scout learn via the existing curriculum that gets him somewhat prepared to help someone in need? And, what does a boy need to master to be prepared to help someone? I'm asking because I'm not involved in guiding scouts through the Cyberchip program, but I have scouts who are the "leaders" in their families in internet privacy/security issues. (That's good and bad.) Is this the 21st century equivalent of the old "how to help in case of a runaway horse" req
  6.

  9. Some fodder for your scoutmaster minute on why you emptied your canteen on some trail-side warming fire your boys lit ... http://wvpublic.org/post/update-three-wildfires-ablaze-dolly-sods-wilderness-two-fires-extinguished Forty years of nutrient litter smolder away in four days. Fortunately limited to just a few acres in a 64 square mile area. It's a shame, but many folks in these parts take fire risk too lightly, thinking it's a Western problem.
