We've changed the date for Mr. Klane's Zoom presentation to 17 March, Friday. Still at 11am. See the EVENTS tab to sign up.
I have updated the ARJ Index in the Reference Library to include the articles in the final issue from 2022. There are now 4,682 line items in there from all issues of ARJ, AIQ, and SOAR, as well as our NAPARS libraries. The first issue of ARJ for this year will be out in a few weeks.
I have also uploaded the video recording of the recent Zoom presentation titled "The EDR and the Trailer Hitch" along with my slide-deck.
The next show (EDR -Update with Andrew Rich) is scheduled for next month. See the EVENTS page for more details.
More news as it happens. Peace. -W

January's 2-hour zoom show has been approved by ACTAR for 2 CEUs. This show will be free for NAPARS members, and just $5 for non-members. I'll be discussing a case study involving an EDR file that initially seemed to disagree with physics...But EDRs are fabulously reliable...What happened? Could it be that the module failed? Can we trust these things? Could it be alien beings interfering with the electronics? We'll talk about it.
We are accepting registrations for a one-week advanced motorcycle crash reconstruction class for next May. This has been approved for 35 ACTAR CEUs. More details can be found in the Events tab, here: NAPARS - Advanced Motorcycle Crash Analysis
Someone is trying to scam people with a PHISHING email that purports to be from our treasurer, though the email address is all wrong. These phishing mails are NOT from NAPARS. Please don't respond to whoever it is - doing so only gives away the fact that you're a real person reading the crap they are sending out! Please just delete it, and be ever mindful of scammers, right? Especially during the holiday season.
Stay safe out there! Peace. -W
The video of today's Zoom show, Equations we love and sometimes hate, along with the slidedeck have been uploaded to the Reference Library. Next one is Monday January 9th. Peace. -W
