Orly Taitz at the Memorial Building in Topeka, Kansas
Date: September 17, 2012
Here are nine photographs of Orly Taitz, a California lawyer, who is a leading figure in the "birther" movement, which challenges whether Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen eligible to serve as President of the United States. The Bias Busters of Kansas group protested outside the Memorial Building where Taitz met with Secretary of State Kris Kobach and spoke to reporters. She represented plaintiffs seeking an emergency preliminary injunction keeping President Obama off the general election ballot until the original identification papers were finally produced and examined by experts. Ultimately, a Shawnee County District Court judge rejected Taitz's request for an emergency injunction blocking Kansas from placing President Barack Obama's name on the election ballot.


Planting soy beans in the Kansas River valley, Shawnee County, Kansas

Planting soy beans in the Kansas River valley, Shawnee County, Kansas
Creator: Kelsey, Francis
Date: May 08, 2012
Here are two video clips showing Francis Kelsey using precision technology, GPS auto steer, and real time mapping to plant soy beans in the Kansas River valley, Shawnee County, Kansas. Auto steer, which uses GPS, allows the tractor to drive itself in the field, and farmers only need to assist it at the end of rows. Using the GPS technology, it makes sure fertilizers and herbicides are applied only where needed and in the correct amount and rows are evenly spaced. It also helps prevent overlapping or missing areas during planting. Both aspects help farmers save seed and chemical usage resulting in cost control.
