Airplane mode cuts off all or non-wifi communication, which is undesirable. Receive-only mode would allow receipt of texts and recorded messages, save power and prevent detection of the phone by radio frequency methods (not by a metal detector). If the phone is stationary, then there is no need for it to send periodic keep-alive or hand-off signals to the cell phone tower. The phone’s accelerometer and GPS receiver can detect with reasonable accuracy whether it stays in the same cell tower’s range. Only when the phone moves a large enough distance will sending hand-off or check-in signals become necessary.
Location can also be detected using the radio receiver of the phone (which every phone has for calls and texts) if multiple cellphone towers are in range – just triangulate. A saved map of tower coverage areas in the phone helps position the phone and detect when the phone moves to a different tower’s area.
A software modification should be enough to create a receive-only mode: turn off sending (supplying power to the antenna) but keep receiving (measure and record the voltage and current in the antenna). Add optional deactivation of the receive-only mode based on the accelerometer and GPS detecting the phone moving out of range of the current cell tower.
I have not tried this, so it is just speculation. There are many claims online that a recumbent bike cannot be bunny hopped. However, lifting the front wheel should be possible while sitting on the bike, because lifting the front caster of an office chair is possible without touching the floor. Lean forward, then slam your torso back against the backrest – careful that you don’t tip over backward. Your legs may be lifted or the feet may rest on top of the “spider” at the bottom of the chair.
On a recumbent, a further boost comes from suddenly pedalling hard in low gear, which accelerates the rear wheel forward and under, rotating the front wheel up around the pivot of the rear wheel.
Lifting the rear wheel of a recumbent should be possible while seated, because popping your butt off the floor when sitting with straight legs is possible without using your leg muscles. Put your fists on the floor slightly behind and to the side of your hips. Bend your elbows, then suddenly straighten them, pushing explosively against the floor. Your butt and your fists lift a few inches. Keep your legs locked straight. Very strong people can do this with legs lifted (in boat pose: body in V-shape with only the butt and fists touching the floor).
Because lifting each wheel is possible and the movements do not directly oppose each other, a recumbent should be bunnyhoppable. Lift first the front and then the rear wheel.
In Stevenson et al 2021 “The impact of contraceptive access on high school graduation” in Science Advances, some numbers do not add up. In the Supplementary Material, Table S1 lists the pre-intervention Other, non-Hispanic cohort size in the 2010 US Census and 2009 through 2017 1-year American Community Survey data as 300, but Table S2 as 290 = 100+70+30+90 (Black + Asian + American Indian + Other/Multiple Races). The post-intervention cohort size is 200 in Table S1, but 230 in Table S2, so the difference is in the other direction (S2 larger) and cannot be due to the same adjustment of one Table for both cohorts, e.g. omitting some racial group or double-counting multiracial people. The main conclusions still hold with the adjusted numbers.
It is interesting that the graduation rate for the Other race group is omitted from the main paper and the Supplementary Material Table S3, because by my calculations, in Colorado, the Other graduation rate decreased after the CFPI contraception access expansion, but in the Parallel Trends states (the main comparison group of US states that the authors use), the Other graduation rate increased significantly. The one missing row in the Table is exactly the one in which the results are the opposite to the rest of the paper and the conclusions of the authors.
