I sure hope so. It skips generations in my family, and this round, it's my turn.

I DRTFA, but it's open season on utility trucks in Texas. I saw a flatbed tow truck flashing red and blue, which I thought wax reserved for police.

The order was
Red-blue-white: cops
Red-white: fire-ems
Yellow-blue: transport or work crews

Now it seems all options are open! And why the hell do some of the ambulances and firetrucks have green lights?

In Cali only police or fire can use red or blue.  Work trucks and everybody else have to use yellow.  I thought it was like that nationwide.  In fact, the only weirdness I thought existed was that Boston, Mass. PD only used blue as opposed to 99% of other police departments using both blue and red.

Same, I've done field work in ~7 states, we were limited to yellow or yellow/white.

Chan and her colleagues enlisted 15 patients diagnosed with mild Alzheimer's. Over a three-month period, part of this group was given equipment to self-administer a daily bout of carefully patterned and synchronized light and sound. Each daily session for this treatment group was an hour in length.

Yeah, maybe get some funding and try a bigger study.
