A “patent” is a filing of a claim with the U.S. Government. You 1.) file a notice that you have invented something. Then 2.)the U.S. Government files a notice back to you saying “nope, no you didn’t, prove it…3.)” Then you file things that prove that you were the first, original, inventor of that thing. 4.) Then the U.S. Government uses it’s entire compliment of investigation and research tools to confirm if you were really the inventor. You can’t just “pay some money and get a patent”. In those rare cases when 5.) the U.S. Government awards you a patent, it means that the entire U.S. Government has decided to stand behind you and say: “Yep, we checked it out, this guy really is the one who invented this thing!”. Getting a patent is a big deal because it means that years of federal investigation has confirmed that you really were the one who created that thing.

Scott was required to “break in” to the closed KQED TV studios at midnight, with help from KQED engineers, activate the entire phone bank inside the studios and staff the phones with qualified counselors on an emergency basis. The Loma Prieta segment of the San Andreas Fault System had been relatively inactive since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (to the degree that it was designated a seismic gap) until two moderate foreshocks occurred in June 1988 and again in August 1989.Because it happened during a national live broadcast of the 1989 World Series, taking place between Bay Area teams San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, it is sometimes referred to as the “World Series earthquake”. Rush-hour traffic on the Bay Area freeways was lighter than normal because the game, being played at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, was about to begin, and this may have prevented a larger loss of life, as several of the Bay Area’s major transportation structures suffered catastrophic failures. The collapse of a section of the double-deck Nimitz Freeway in Oakland was the site of the largest number of casualties for the event. Scott has worked earthquake, tsunami, wild-fire and other rapid-deployment disasters.
