Live Eagle Nest Cam
By clicking on the photo you can see and hear activity at an eagle nest - live.
Season three began December 28 at the Hanover nest. The cameras and audio equipment installed for the 2016 season continue to provide excellent views and audio of this eagle family.
The live stream began December 17, 2016 shortly after the installation of two new cameras and audio equipment. Eggs were laid on February 18 and 21. March 28 one of the eggs hatched; the nestling died two days later, perhaps injured by a branch being moved in the nest. The other egg never hatched and remained n the nest until May 23 when one of the adults removed the remnants from the nest.
Hanover is located in south-central PA about five miles from the Mason-Dixon line.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY - April 16
Massacre at Virginia Tech leaves 32 dead -2007
On this day in 2007, in one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history, 32 students and teachers die after being gunned down on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University by Seung Hui Cho, a student at the school who later dies from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The violence began around 7:15 a.m., when Cho, a 23-year-old senior and English major at Blacksburg-based Virginia Tech, shot a female freshman and a male resident assistant in a campus dormitory before fleeing the building. Police were soon on the scene; unaware of the gunman’s identity, they initially pursued the female victim’s boyfriend as a suspect in what they believed to be an isolated domestic-violence incident. However, at around 9:40 a.m., Cho, armed with a 9-millimeter handgun, a 22-caliber handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, entered a classroom building, chained and locked several main doors and went from room to room shooting people. Approximately 10 minutes after the rampage began, he committed suicide. The attack left 30 people dead and another 17 wounded. In all, 27 students and five faculty members died as a result of Cho’s actions.

Pelican knocks drone out of the sky
(UPI) -- A man flying his drone on a Jamaican beach said the device was almost lost for good when it was knocked out of the air by a pelican.
The drone was recording video of Seven Mile Beach in Negril and the footage shows a pelican come into frame and crash head-on into the drone, apparently an intentional attack.
The owner of the device, who had launched it from more than 4 miles away, said luckily the drone had a soft landing in the sand, so he was able to recover the device and its footage.
"I was lucky to get it back and thank God I did cuz I got a pretty good video," the owner wrote.
Seasonal Tips for Warm Weather Fashions
(StatePoint) From cool and casual to feminine and expressive, the newest trends in apparel and shoes are giving women the tools to express themselves through fashion this season.
Unabashedly girly shades, such as pinks and blushes are dominating the landscape, while creative construction and soft materials offer a variety of comfortable options for all occasions and lifestyles.
Brittany Moeller, women’s buyer for shoe retailer Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, shares some tips on how to wear the latest trends during the warm weather months.
Embrace Your Feminine Side
Floaty, floral dresses, lace patterns and new blush shades are all trending this season, empowering women to express themselves through feminine details with the utmost confidence. Embroidery and crochet designs can be found on everything from shoes to jeans, as well as jackets, blouses and t-shirts, which is a subtle nod to inspirational throwback styles.
Not convinced blush is your color? Not to worry: Neutrals, creams and tans also provide a sophisticated color palette to work with this season.
Express Your Casual Side
“Whether you’re looking to take the Bohemian style to the next level or you love a cool and sporty outfit, there are so many ways to pull off a casual look this season -- plus plenty of footwear to choose from,” says Moeller.
Cropped jeans, short sleeve cotton dresses and graphic t-shirts can all be complemented by the latest in outdoor-inspired sandals, sneakers and slides.
Selecting pretty and elegant fashion options doesn’t have to translate to swollen and sore feet at the end of the day! In fact, footwear manufacturers have created clever ways to deliver more comfortable choices. Consider this:
• Block heels and wedges are on trend, easy to wear and easy to walk in!
• Popular materials, such as velvet and suede, are comfortable and soft to the touch.
• Hidden construction features, such as zippers on the back and Velcro strapping, make a shoe easier to slip on -- rather than a closure that isn’t designed to “give” when placing over the foot.
“How you define femininity and stay casual and comfortable is an individual choice. This season’s fashion footwear choices cover all the bases,” says Moeller.
To find footwear for any occasion this spring, check out Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse. With more than 80 locations from coast to coast, they offer high fashion styles from top designer and name brands that meet today’s current trends. Visit offbroadwayshoes.com for more information on how to venture into the warm weather in style.
With so many styles trending right now, it’s easy for anyone to feel great while wearing the latest fashions.
Summer Tips to Protect Your Smartphone
(StatePoint) Taking good care of your smartphone should be a priority all year long. However, in summer, doing so may seem like more of a challenge, as you find yourself on-the-go and frequently in situations that may compromise your device.
Use these tips to protect your smartphone with style.
From barbecue sauce in the park to salt and sand at the beach, the summer means more opportunities for sticky situations. Use a hands-free headset whenever necessary. You may also consider throwing hand wipes into your beach bag or picnic basket so you can always capture that Instagram shot on the fly without mucking up your screen.
Use a Case
These days, there is no excuse not to use a phone case, even if style is important to you. With so many colors and designs available, you can find one that complements your fashion sense, and protects your device from drops and falls. If you have a love affair with the latest and greatest, you can take heart that, just like smartphones, cases are also improving, getting sleeker and gaining more functionality.
For those with the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus for example, check out options like the Clayco Iris clear case, which features a transparent, damage-resistant back, sleek design and multiple color options. Other models offer convenience and functionality, like i-Blason’s Transformer, which has a holster capable of 360-degree rotation, and a kickstand that allows for hands-free movie viewing.
Prevent Water Damage
If you are headed to the lake, river or out on the boat, it’s important to keep your phone safe and dry with protection designed with water resistance in mind. For example, a NexCase Waterproof phone pouch is compatible with many models of phones, won’t interfere with the touchscreen or camera, and can be used to hold IDs, cash keys and credit cards while adventuring.
When it comes to reliable water resistance, pay attention to the IP rating (or Ingress Protection Rating) of the case. An airtight design, such as the iPhone 7 Plus WaterProof case, has a water resistance rating of “7,” which means that your phone can be fully submerged in water as deep as one meter for a period of up to 30 minutes.
Remember that during temperature extremes, your unattended vehicle can become extremely hot very quickly without climate control. So, don’t leave your device behind when you exit your car, as these conditions can have damaging effects on its hardware and functionality.
From sun to surf, take steps to give your smartphone the royal treatment. Your device will work better and last longer if you do.
