Ford issues second major recall in two weeks
The NHTSA called the Takata air bag recalls "the largest and most complex vehicle recalls in USA history". And 10 million more inflators are scheduled to be recalled this month, including the Ford vehicles.

The meteor shower is expected to be visible in the Northern Hemisphere, especially mid-northern and far-northern latitudes, if weather conditions allow. Experts say the Quadrantids are often overlooked because of the very brief peak and because the meteors that originated from this "asteroid or possible rock comet" produce typically faint flares. This particular asteroid is 2003 EH1, which takes 5.52 years to orbit the sun once.

The shower's short peak is because only a small stream of particles interacts with our atmosphere, and the stream occurs at a perpendicular angle.
