Image quality, vignetting, flare and distortion test results along with specs and measurements have been added to the Samyang 16mm f/2 ED AS UMC CS Lens (also branded as Rokinon/Bower) page.
 
Looks like a decent lens from an optical perspective. Full disclosure: we returned our first copy of this lens due to a likely decentering issue.

From Nikon:
 
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.01 to 1.02
 
  • Addressed an issue that sometimes caused errors with certain UHS-II SD memory cards. As we were able to confirm that these were read errors arising not in the camera but in the cards themselves, we addressed the issue with a work-around that switches temporarily to UHS-I mode when a card-side error occurs in UHS-II mode. The camera switches back to UHS-II mode when turned off and then on again or when the standby timer restarts. Card-side read errors may still occur after the update, albeit very infrequently.
Download: Nikon D500 Firmware v.1.02

The America Civil Liberties Union has created a free resource which outlines photographers' rights and tips on what to do if those rights are infringed upon.
 
From the ACLU:
Taking photographs of things that are plainly visible from public spaces is a constitutional right – and that includes federal buildings, transportation facilities, and police and other government officials carrying out their duties. Unfortunately, there is a widespread, continuing pattern of law enforcement officers ordering people to stop taking photographs from public places, and harassing, detaining and arresting those who fail to comply.
To find out more, check out the ACLU article "Know Your Rights: What to Do If You Are Stopped or Detained Taking Photographs"

DJI’s new Geospatial Environment Online system, or GEO for short, is a best-in-class flight information system that helps drone operators make smart decisions about where and when to fly. It combines up-to-date live airspace information, a warning and flight-restriction system, and a mechanism for authorized users to unlock flight restrictions in certain locations.

From National Geographic:
 
wild_life With Bertie Gregory Launches Wednesday, Aug. 3, on Nat Geo WILD’s YouTube Channel and NationalGeographic.com
 
July 06, 2016 04:18 PM ET – WASHINGTON – Nat Geo WILD inspires people to let the wild in every day. The network is dedicated to creating content for animal lovers everywhere to enjoy, whether it’s on TV, in magazines, or in books. Now, Nat Geo WILD is bringing the wild online with the launch of its first-ever digital series, wild_life With Bertie Gregory, premiering Wednesday, Aug. 3, on the network’s YouTube Channel, as well as on NationalGeographic.com.
 
Join 22-year-old wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory (@bertiegregory) as he journeys to the west coast of Vancouver Island in search of the elusive coastal wolves, a species that inhabits one of the last places on the planet where a wild forest meets a wild ocean.
 
For a sneak peek of the series, click here.
 
“This series is as much about the adventure to get the shot as it is about the shot itself,” said Gregory. “I’m taking viewers into the wild and getting up close and personal with Canada’s sexiest coastal predators. The camera is always rolling. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s intimate. And I’m excited to be a part of Nat Geo WILD’s first venture into the digital space.”
 
Over the course of 16 episodes, Gregory finds that tracking down these wolves proves to be harder than expected … but he’s not giving up. He also attempts to get face to face with some of the other charismatic species that live along this pristine coastline. Each episode features Gregory’s encounters with epic animals, including humpback whales, bald eagles and black bears. He occasionally gets closer than anticipated, as he must untangle himself from a few sticky situations, like ending up with his head in the jaws of a playful 2,000-pound sea lion.
 
“We are thrilled to extend the WILD brand beyond television to reach our audiences wherever they are,” said Geoff Daniels, executive vice president and general manager, Nat Geo WILD. “Bertie is a great ambassador for us, and his adventures in this new series will be celebrated across National Geographic’s many platforms, including SnapChat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Nat Geo LIVE! and more.”
