After a raucous 2018 spring break season, Miami Beach made the move to ban rentals of motorized scooters for the entire month of March when thousands of young people flood the local landscape. Nearly 450 tickets were written to scooter drivers in March 2018, easily doubling, and then some, the combined total number of tickets written in the previous two months of the year.

For that reason, the City Commission deigned scooters to be a public safety concern and voted to ban their rental during the busiest month of the year. Some City Commissioners, though are beginning to rethink the ban, proposing new rules requiring motor scooter rental outfits to equip their scooters with GPS tracking instead.

Your outside sales fleet can be the life blood of your business. They are the movers and shakers that get people excited to buy and use the products or services you create and offer.

Either way, you can use GPS to learn where your team members are spending the bulk of their time outside the office and how well it benefits your overall business plan for them to do so.

With growing concerns about a potential global threat stemming from the Marburg virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has asked the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency to pony up funds for bat trackers.

The Marburg virus is a close cousin to Ebola, one of the more terrifying viruses widely recognized by those in scientific communities. It is also carried by bats. When transmitted from bats to humans, the illness is lethal in nine out of ten victims when some dying within a single week.

There are two reasons scientists are so eager to study the nocturnal movements of bats. One is in hope of preventing the spread of Marburg and the other is in hopes of making progress for more effective Ebola treatments.
