how can these people survive???
Volume sales, automation, and low labor costs. A warehouse where no customers go is a lot easier to run than a store. Target has a HUGE warehouse here. When you go inside it looks like something out of Star Wars.

We had the Saudi princess here, attending UCF who enjoyed beating the sht out of her slave girl__she left on the Bin Laden flight though. Prior we had Fahd, King Faisal's kid who had the top two floors at the Royal Plaza (Disney) and brought dozens of servants and body guards along on the annual pilgrimage. There was violence towards the servants there also.

Good help is hard to find when you don't pay them eh?

Surprised that the Indian gal was trying to get over on US customs__truth might come out in a day or two__India is complicated with, Hindus, Moslems, Sihks and lesser known's. and all can be shifty.when it comes to money management.

The leftists will stutter and "yeah, but" when they find out the Robertson's adopted a biracial (a brown baby for those of you in Missoula) child 11 years ago.

India, home of the double standard.
Well, it's an interesting story however, this outrage and claim of diplomatic immunity speaks to the caste system wherein only the poor in India are treated this way. She doesn't have diplomatic immunity regarding our laws of employment. Apparently the maid went missing in June and hired a lawyer. I do think that $250,000 bond is excessive though.
She lied on the visa application saying she is paying her $4500 a month and she was paying her $500 or so a month.
This diplomatic immunity thing is weird anyway; you should still have to abide by the laws of the country you're in.

They think they can do the same thing here; hold them like prisoners or slaves and pay them nothing so that they can't escape. It's disgusting. I think there's one in California that is doing time for that too.
This Indian diplomat doesn't have immunity regarding our labor laws; and she's appalled that she was arrested and treated like a criminal; only poor people in India get that treatment.
$250,000 bond seems out there though. The maid has a lawyer.

Domino's 'DomiCopter' drone can deliver two large pepperonis
Nidhi Subbaraman NBC News
June 3, 2013 at 7:18 PM ET
On a lunch break last month, a small custom-built octacopter made a 10-minute flight through the city of Guildford, outside of London. Its special cargo: two large pepperoni pizzas.
The delivery was masterminded by a T + Biscuits, an English creative agency that was hired by Domino's to test prototypes.
"We're looking at making flying pizzas a possibility," Tom Hatton, Master Brewer and founder of T + Biscuits, told NBC News.
A pizza delivering drone smells deliciously similar to the fabled TacoCopter — a taco delivery app which, to the Internet's disappointment, ended up being just a concept design — but Hatton insists the "DomiCopter" is the real deal. "We're serious about it," he said.
Still, don't hold your breath for a local copter-powered delivery system coming anytime soon. The daily business of T + Biscuits has more to do with mobile apps than logistics and safety regulations, and while the video certainly demonstrates that the pizzas did fly, the firm and its client likely did it more for publicity than for revolutionizing the delivery game, at least for now
I read it and it likely was for publicity as the article clearly stated.__it won't happen in your lifetime Flacko__it won't replace ground delivery because it can't, so what's the point of having a ten thousand dollar plus drone investment and a qualified operator and still have to have ground delivery.

Get a mental picture of a few pizza delivery drones flying near your local Navy base. Hah!

UPS researching delivery drones that could compete with Amazon's Prime Air
Flying parcel-carriers are the next logical frontier for delivery companies
By Ben Popper on December 3, 2013 08:29 am

e
Amazon made headlines Sunday night when it announced it was working on small drones that could someday deliver customers packages in half an hour or less. But the e-commerce giant isn’t the only company researching how to harness the potential of small unmanned aircraft: The Verge has learned that the world's largest parcel service, UPS, has been experimenting with its own version of flying parcel carriers.

"THE COMMERCIAL USE OF DRONES IS AN INTERESTING TECHNOLOGY."

Sources familiar with the company’s plans say it has been testing and evaluating different approaches to drone delivery. Asked for a comment, a company spokesman said that, "The commercial use of drones is an interesting technology and we’ll continue to evaluate it. UPS invests more in technology than any other company in the delivery business, and we’re always planning for the future."

In some ways, say industry experts, this is no surprise. "I would be shocked if a company like UPS wasn’t considering this," says Ryan Calo, a law professor specializing in drones and robotics. "If you want to compete in logistics and delivery, drones and unmanned robots have to be part of the conversation about where things are headed."

"I WOULD BE SHOCKED IF A COMPANY LIKE UPS WASN’T CONSIDERING THIS."

So far UPS has kept quiet about its plans, perhaps because any drone delivery project is years away from being legal and operational. For Jeff Bezos, on the other hand — who admitted that his drone fleet probably won’t be available for some time— the news was perfectly timed to hit on Cyber Monday, driving tons of free publicity to Amazon on the biggest online shopping day of the year.

UPS has a number of different ways it might utilize drones. It could offer something similar to Amazon’s Prime Air, or it might use them to help move packages around its own warehouses. Calo was skeptical of the video offered up by Amazon, where a drone drops off a package in a family’s suburban driveway. "I think from both a tech and a policy perspective, delivering to consumers in residential areas is going to be tough thing to accomplish any time soon," says Calo. "But a company like UPS could use drones to bring packages quickly and cheaply from a major airport or city to pick-up centers in more remote locations, speeding up delivery for a lot of customers."

"GPS COORDINATES ALONE WON’T CUT IT IF YOU GOT A CAR OR SOME KIDS IN THE DRIVEWAY."

Others in the industry are more bullish on how quickly a drone delivery service could be up and running. According to Colin Guinn, the North American CEO for the drone manufacturer DJI, "A company like Amazon or UPS could have a safe, operational fleet in 18-24 months," he tells The Verge. "What we need in terms of tech is improved object detection and avoidance, because GPS coordinates alone won’t cut it if you got a car or some kids in the driveway."

FedEx founder Fred Smith has spoken repeatedly about his desire to move to a fleet of unmanned aircraft, something he believes could generate major cost savings. The impediment so far has been regulators. "We have all this stuff working in the lab right now, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel," remarks Guinn. "We need a set of rules from the FAA. It’s just a matter of getting the laws in place so companies can begin building to those specifications and doing some real field testing."
