NASA began flight testing Monday with Joby Aviation’s all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft as part of the agency’s Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) National Campaign! In the future, eVTOL aircraft could serve as air taxis for those in cities and surrounding areas around the country, adding another mode of transportation for moving people and goods.

news is always welcome when an experience goes right. Attention must also be given when avoidable poor experiences go wrong. I had an event take place that should have never occurred should the employee remembered her professionalism and MANNERS. Being a long time off/on resident of Alamo since 1979 (at mid high), I watched the mall being built and decided to walk through to notice the changes. Upon crossing a mall store "opening", I glanced inside its walls and encountered a young lady shouting something from the very back of the store while she was doing "whatever" on her laptop. As a former Drill Sgt, I shouted back lounder and with enough volume to remind her of forgotten both manners and customer courtesy. As I moved past her first "slight", I then asked about the esurprising store location away from the actual spaceo hall. The response I got amounted to a fast answer containing nothing about my inquiry. As I asked about various items to purchase, I got a tidal wave of information having nothing to do with my question. She cut me off so much that my initial interest in the store was almost completely forgottn. After being spoke over for the last time, I was FORCED to cut off her reminders of town seniority with how I watched the Space Shuttle Columbia land in 1982 and her doing it again would allow me to SHOW her my Drill Sgt experience. She both mysteriously and immediately remember her manners with "Sir" and actually answering questions directly in considering another purchase. When I asked for the receipt, I informed her I would give a formal complaint of my experience, to which she replied her printed name "Suzie" was a nickname vs real name. Either she needs to be reminded of required professionalism through either official employment documentation or finding another options better fit for her temperament. I am always the customer and the store is ALWAYS the service. I was eager to get away from her ASAP before I "asked what time it is" and got the "history of time, or where watches were built".

Hi, I would like to share my Preservation Workshop video "Forget Pledge". May it give you some ideas for dusting and polishing. It's only 12 minutes long. Feel free to share with your friends.
Was there many years ago when I applied for graduate work at New Mexico Tech on the VLA (didn't make it). Lots of fun. Very interesting. Would highly recommend it!
