We’ve all seen it happen – a pooch waiting in the car for its owner on what feels like a thousand degree day. Even with the car off, the temperature inside can rise to a harmful, potentially life-threatening level. Aaron Starkman felt the threats first hand. After leaving his dog, Hefty, in the car for what he thought would be a couple minutes in the pouring rain, he returned after a 20-minute-long lineup to the sun shining and Hefty struggling in the heat.
Access to the Internet and connectivity are often taken for granted by people living in urban and suburban communities. Many people have come to expect wireless access as a part of daily life.
