Future News and Constitutional Lawyer Daniel Sheehan on a Call for Action

Listen Now to The Dr. Future Show  1.27.14

Some interesting news this week, such as SpaceX getting $1 Billion from Google and Fidelity, and iRobot starting a venture capital company.  Most of our time this week, however, is dedicated to our guest, Constitutional and public interest lawyer, Daniel Sheehan, who brings to our attention a serious threat to our constitutional rights and what we can do about it, here and now. 

In response to constitutional violations of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, the Romero Institute is working to create a Constitution Protection Zone in Santa Cruz.  This would require all Santa Cruz City and County law enforcement officers to actively stop outside agencies from enforcing the unconstitutional  sections of the act.

Federal agents being stopped by local police?  It’s getting interesting now..



The Tech Challenge - Students collaborate state wide for best earthquake disaster robotic solution.

Sponsored by Cisco Systems and hosted by The Tech Museum in San Jose, 1400 students from across the state of California, from elementary to high school, created various robotic solutions for rescuing people who have fallen off a bridge like the Golden Gate.  

Dr. Future interviews two of the main organizers of the event, Tim Ritchie, president of the Tech Museum and Richardo Benavidez, Senior Manager of Community Relations, at Cisco Systems.

And here, all three of us chat with the girl’s team from Cupertino High School, “CRACK CITY,” about their experience of The Tech Challenge.

This article in the Mercury News give you a good sense of this year’s Tech Challenge.
