Director / CrewHey Reddit! This is Marc Bernardin, professional nerd. I write TV shows and comic books - and cohost the Fatman on Batman podcast. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6429/hey-reddit-this-is-marc-bernardin-professional My name is Sean Stratton I am a 24 year old environmental scientist and I am currently running for New Jersey District 18 Assembly as the Green Party candidate. I’m here to talk to you about my political platform and the experience of running as a young adult and third party candidate.

I decided to run for office 5 months ago after a friend’s tap water test came back containing 82 ppb of lead. This led me to research the federal Lead and Copper Rule along with conducting Open Public Record Act requests (for anyone not in New Jersey this is called Freedom of Information) to my hometown and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. What I found was that my hometown was not sampling the correct locations as per the federal regulations and they were not providing the correct notification to residents who had their homes tested. From this I began to look at other towns and found that we have multiple towns and cities here in New Jersey that have breached the federal action level for lead in residential drinking water. 3 examples are Newark, Trenton, and Milltown. This is significant because even during the height of the Flint Michigan crisis, Flint never exceeded federal standards.

This is when I decided I would run for office; I believe that everyone has the right to clean drinking water and in order to provide this we need to drastically rebuild our infrastructure including our water distribution system. I also believe that every worker deserves a livable wage which is why I support increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour here in New Jersey. Finally, I believe that all citizens no matter how rich or how poor have the right to healthcare. I support universal healthcare and will push for a New Jersey single payer healthcare system.

EDIT: Wow! 7 hours and I definitely got way more questions than anticipated! Was great talking with everyone and I definitely learned a lot! Remember to vote in your state and local elections, they're important!

Director / CrewHi, I'm Scotty from Strange Parts. I make videos about ridiculous technology adventures, including assembling my own iPhone in China and adding a working headphone jack to an iPhone 7. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6363/hi-im-scotty-from-strange-parts-i-make-videos Hi there Redditors - Scotty from Strange Parts here.

You might know me as the guy who assembled his own iPhone 6s from parts bought in the electronics markets in Shenzhen, China: https://youtu.be/leFuF-zoVzA

I just added a working headphone jack to an iPhone 7: https://youtu.be/utfbE3_uAMA

Thanks for all the amazing support - Reddit was super instrumental in getting out the word on both of the videos I've made, and I've really enjoyed all the questions and ideas you've sent my way.

I'm in China at the moment, so timezones suck, but I'll be around for the next few hours answering as many questions as I can about Shenzhen, the electronics markets, iPhones, and whatever else you want to hear about.

Lastly - I'll be doing a youtube live video Q&A today at around 3pm Eastern, 12pm Pacific. Subscribe to the youtube channel here to get notified when it goes live, and when I post future videos: http://strangeparts.com/subscribe

Proof that I'm me: https://twitter.com/strangepartscom/status/905842010849918976

Edit: I'm going to take a break to do some live Q&A on youtube: http://youtube.com/strangeparts. But I'll be back here after to answer more questions.

Edit 2: I'm back! Thanks to everyone that tuned in for the youtube Q&A - sorry it was a bit rough getting going. The internet in China is challenging at times. It's pretty late here (5am), but I'll try and answer a few more questions before I crash for the night.

Edit 3: Thanks for all the questions everyone - I'm going to have to crash for a couple hours, but will try and check in and answer more questions in the morning. Good night from Shenzhen!

Edit 4: I'm back - I'll be popping in and out and answering questions as I take care of a few other things. So if you have any more burning questions, fire away.

Director / CrewI am Scot Armstrong, writer of Old School, Hangover 2, and Road Trip. Season 2 of my show Dice premiers this Sunday on Showtime, so AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6313/i-am-scot-armstrong-writer-of-old-school-hangover The Associated Press is launching Future of Work, a series of stories exploring how technology and global pressures are transforming workplaces across the U.S. and around the world. The first installments went out this week and focus on workers’ relationships with robots, and how automation is changing the availability and nature of employment in manufacturing.

There’s a paradox in how we think of modern American manufacturing jobs.

While it’s true that many of these jobs have gone overseas, U.S. manufacturers have actually added nearly a million jobs in the past seven years, and federal statistics show nearly 390,000 such jobs are unfilled.

But this isn’t the kind of assembly-line work your parents and grandparents did. More and more factory jobs now demand education, technical know-how or specialized skills to run robots. Many of the workers laid off from low-tech factories lack such qualifications, and training opportunities are limited, particularly for older workers. Japan is way ahead of the U.S. in introducing robots to the workplace, but it hasn’t resulted in some of the job reductions observed in other nations. It has also not created the surge in higher-skilled employment. So, it turns out, there are plenty of manufacturing jobs. There just aren’t enough of the right kind of workers to fill them.

Here’s your chance to talk about this with some of the Associated Press journalists who reported these stories in text, photos, video and graphics across three continents. We are writer Dan Sewell and photographer John Minchillo in Cincinnati: business writer Yuri Kageyama in Tokyo: economics editor Fred Monyak in Washington: and enterprise editor Jeff McMillan in Philadelphia. Ask us anything!

Director / CrewWe create VFX globally for movies and TV shows like El Chapo and Scandal. We are the VFX Legion. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6166/we-create-vfx-globally-for-movies-and-tv-shows On June 12, Rotary and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced an extension and increase of their financial commitment in an effort to eradicate polio worldwide once and for all. Additionally, 16 governments and several organizations have just pledged $1.2B to eradicate polio. Rotary has already contributed over 1.6 billion U.S. dollars and hundreds of thousands of hours of volunteer time to the eradication of polio. When we succeed in eradicating polio, it would become only the second disease to be eradicated by vaccines, the other being smallpox.

Personally, I have known Dr. Salk, creator of the inactivated polio vaccine, and Dr. Sabin, creator of the oral polio vaccine through my work at the National Institutes of Health. In 1979 the last case of endemic polio was reported in the U.S. I, along with Rotary International president, Clem Renouf, brought to Rotary the idea to make it our chief goal to eradicate polio worldwide. For the last 11 years, I have been carrying on the visions of Drs. Salk and Sabin as the vice-chairman of Rotary International’s PolioPlus program, which helps oversee Rotary’s polio vaccination efforts worldwide.

Context:

In 1916, polio was an epidemic in the United States with over 27,000 cases and 6,000 deaths. Following the availability of Dr. Salk’s inactivated vaccine in 1955 and Dr. Sabin’s oral polio vaccine in 1962, polio began to decline in developed countries where they were used. That decline began to accelerate as groups such as Rotary International began to champion the issue in the early 1980s.

Today, polio is nearly eradicated globally, as we’ve seen a 99.9% reduction – from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to just 6 reported cases so far in 2017. Polio is virtually eradicated, but there is still so much more to do. If we don’t continue to vaccinate, we could see 200,000 new cases every year – giving polio an unprecedented resurgence.
