The GOES-16 post-launch field campaign is now underway. During this three month campaign, a team of instrument scientists, meteorologists, GOES-16 engineers, and specialized pilots will use an outfit of high-altitude planes, ground-based sensors, unmanned aircraft systems (or drones), the International Space Station, and the NOAA/NASA Suomi NPP polar-orbiting satellite to collect measurements across the United States to support validation of the GOES-16 Advanced Baseline Imager and Geostationary Lightning Mapper instruments.

There is some question of Christ’s divinity and how that plays a part in Christian principles and it is suggested that the voice in the novel desires a form of collectivism where humanity looks at one another as equal parts and equal heirs of God. This human-Jesus argument within the novel stands as an effort to make humanity, whom Trout may consider to be “bums” and “nobodies,” have more narration's call for a more human-Jesus and Christianity is seen in the last part of the discussion on Trout’s novel where God speaks from heaven stating, “ From this moment on, He [God] will punish horribly anybody who torments a bum who has not connections!”  Trout’s novel attempts to make everybody somebody, as well as to emphasize the supposed cruelty of original Christian thinking, and how it ought to be changed.
An article last Sunday about the 50-year fight over the Voting Rights Act referred incompletely to the significance of Georgia’s revised voter-ID Law. While it did include a provision allowing those without ID to file provisional ballots, the more relevant feature involved offering free voter-identification cards to those who needed them. The article also misidentified the court that upheld the revised voter-ID law. It is the Georgia Supreme Court, not the Supreme Court of the United States. The article also misidentified the location of the residence of a member of the New Black Panther Party who was accused of intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling station in 2008. He lived in a house a few blocks away from the polling place, not in the building that housed the polling station. In addition, the article misspelled the surname of a state senator who helped pass North Carolina’s sweeping new voting law. He is Tom Apodaca, not Apadoca. And a picture with an accompanying timeline was published in error. It showed President Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, on July 2 of that year — not the Voting Rights Act. A picture of Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act, on Aug. 6, 1965, can be found at /magazine.
