while the losers at McDonald's demonstrate......

A company called Momentum Machines has built a robot that could radically change the fast-food industry and have some line cooks looking for new jobs.

The company's robot can "slice toppings like tomatoes and pickles immediately before it places the slice onto your burger, giving you the freshest burger possible." The robot is "more consistent, more sanitary, and can produce ~360 hamburgers per hour." That's one burger every 10 seconds.

The next generation of the device will offer "custom meat grinds for every single customer. Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground to order? No problem."

Momentum Machines cofounder Alexandros Vardakostas told Xconomy his "device isn’t meant to make employees more efficient. It’s meant to completely obviate them." Indeed, marketing copy on the company's site reads that their automaton "does everything employees can do, except better."

Nation’s Largest Voter Study Shows 64 Percent of Americans Do Not Vote Party Lines, Reveals the Issues, Values Are What Matters

Resonate Releases Study in Advance of Mid-Term and National Election Cycles

April 08, 2014 08:04 AM Eastern Daylight Time

RESTON, Va.—(BUSINESS WIRE)— Results of the “2014 Voter Motivation Landscape” released today by Resonate reveal a new look at the electorate that includes the issues and values people care about most when casting their vote. Voters are grouped into 10 segments based on issues ranging from social equality and environmental protection to entitlement reform and gun rights. The study also shows that conventionally grouped voters, such as Hispanics and Millennials, are present in all segments – proving blanket demographics inefficient. Only 36 percent of Americans reportedly vote on straight party lines, further rejecting party affiliation as an indication of future voting behavior. To devise a winning strategy, campaigns need to understand the issues an individual voter cares most about to drive a successful outcome.

“This study highlights an innovative approach that enables campaigns to engage with voters on a more meaningful level”
The “Voter Motivation Landscape” is the first of its kind to specifically address the “why”– voters’ values, attitudes and beliefs – that determine how people vote. Created to help its political clients better connect with voters, Resonate used 51 different issue positions, spanning 12 categories of interest (such as income/wealth taxes, entitlement programs, traditional and alternative fuels, and fiscal regulation) to create these voter segments. The study leverages machine learning to aggregate data from more than 8,000 proprietary survey responses to group voters into its 10 distinct segments.

“This study highlights an innovative approach that enables campaigns to engage with voters on a more meaningful level,” said Andy Hunn, COO of Resonate.“With an active database of more than 200,000 survey respondents, our customers can dive deep into the issues and values that drive people to vote for a candidate – and at full scale for digital media delivery. Traditional targeting methods, such as voter registration files and demographic segments, remain relevant as filtering tools that can be applied to the deeper audience understanding. Armed with this information, political and advocacy organizations can more effectively and efficiently affect all aspects of their campaign, from advertising to talking points, in a very systematic way.”

How anyone could still defend this failed president and his total lack of leadership is like defending Captain Smith after barreling through a field of icebergs while the ship is sinking.

Prominent Democrats are even questioning his ability to lead.

Apparently, only stooges stick together. And those treading water in the middle of the Atlantic.

You people really need to wise up. You've become like fools who have no shame in proving it. At least try to redeem yourselves. I beg you.

'Hamas 'admits' murder of teens which sparked Gaza war'
http://www.itv.com/news/update/2014-08-21/ham...
Even Israeli intelligence doesn't believe that tale.

Saleh al-Arouri's "claim has not been supported by any other member of Hamas." He lived in Syria from 2010 until the unrest during the Arab spring, when he moved to Turkey."

"Hugh Lovatt, Israel and Palestine coordinator at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said that while al-Arouri was a significant Hamas figure – serving as the group's most prominent representative in Turkey – the former militant could have an ulterior motive for making his claim.

"Given the timing I would be very suspicious about his claim. I still don't believe Hamas as an organization and its upper echelons sanctioned the kidnappings – something that Israeli intelligence also believes," he said."

Lovatt said that al-Arouri may be trying to claim credit for the actions of others in an attempt to demonstrate his own continued sway in the West Bank and Hamas's ability to hit Israel after failing to secure significant concessions after six weeks of violence in Gaza.

"A second, more remote possibility, is that al-Arouri is telling the truth and that he has operated on his own initiative – a development with very worrying repercussions as it would imply a serious power struggle and splintering within Hamas," he said.

I will agree with you that the photos are an intentional attempt to mislead the public but they don't fool anyone. By now everyone knows that Brown wasn't an innocent "kid". However, to say he is a "false martyr for a phony cause" is unfair.
One of the definitions of a martyr is "a person who suffers greatly from something". The protesters honestly believe that Brown was the victim of discrimination. Who are you to say that is a false belief? Perhaps it will be determined that Brown wasn't victimized by the police officer but this movement goes deeper. It goes to years of deep frustration. These people honestly believe that blacks are treated less fairly by the police. If they believe it, it is not a "phony cause". This problem has been festering for some time.
There is a poem called "Harlem" which starts out with "What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore—"
Ahem__never agree with the phony Galt.

There were several Michael Brown photos being used by the media early on, most if not all were recent including the earphones pic. The guy was just out of high school and while he was large, he was also young.

Do police target black youth? In a word yes! Presently in Ocala Florida another low pants ordinance is being considered by the city commission. These ordinances allow the PD to approach black males and converse with them which may or may not lead to an arrest. Those who are arrested are booked and gain a criminal arrest record__if they already have a criminal arrest record it's another hashmark. Of course these ordinances are unconstitutional but many young black males get caught up in the crossfire before the challenges prevail. Many moons ago it was large afro's with combs sticking out__it's always something and as a result many black males found themselves unemployable or worse doing time for some bullsht ordinance that "grew" into a VOP or some other imagined offense.

Of course it would be better if young black males didn't wear pants down low, or dreads or afros or walk through town because they lack transportation. It would be nice if everyone had a fair shot at life.

Hah!

Huffington Post hires former Washington Redskin WR Donte Stallworth to cover national security.

Let's see...apart from the fact that Stallworth is NOT a journalist, IS a 9/11 ¨Truther¨ AND pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter for striking and killing a 59-year-old man in Florida in 2009, this seems like a great hire!

Obama and NATO face uncertainty instead of closure in Afghanistan
When President Obama and other leaders belonging to the NATO coalition meet this week in Newport, Wales, they'll have plenty on their plate to discuss, between Russia's hostility toward Ukraine and the growing threat from ISIS. Before tackling those subjects, however, they'll have to address the unexpectedly complicated situation in Afghanistan.
After 13 years of war in Afghanistan, NATO allies expected that this week's summit would mark the smooth withdrawal of NATO forces from Afghanistan. NATO countries are expected to keep troops there past this year with the mission of training and advising Afghan security forces. Now, however, with the results of Afghanistan's presidential elections unclear, it's unclear what role the U.S. and NATO will play there.
"When the summit was announced a year ago, everyone thought this would be a meeting in which NATO... would celebrate the end of the mission," Ivo Daalder, former U.S. permanent representative to NATO and president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, told reporters Wednesday. "The developments in Afghanistan have put a monkey wrench in that part of the conversation."
...Without a signed agreement protecting U.S. troops, the U.S. would pull all troops out of Afghanistan, and NATO allies would follow.
"I think there's a lot of nervousness... particularly on the military side, in terms of the timelines," Kathleen Hicks, director of the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) told reporters last week. "If there's not a BSA for the U.S.-- and ergo, not a BSA for NATO with Afghanistan -- that there would have to be a very stressful timeline to pull out troops."
Yet with no political agreement in sight, no head of state from Afghanistan will be present at the NATO summit.
Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in Kabul last week that the Pentagon would let U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan even if the political stalemate is drawn out "a little further than we hoped it would."
Hicks that "we're playing a little bit of a game of chicken here."
"I do think... we are being respectful, perhaps, is the way to put it, to the Afghan political process," she added.
Under all of this uncertainty,...
...the growing threat of Islamic extremists in Iraq is expected to loom over the Afghanistan discussions. Extremists gained a foothold in Iraq after the United States withdrew from there in 2011, and already, the Taliban is attempting to exploit the political weaknesses in Afghanistan.
Hicks said it's unclear whether that will "change the calculus with regard to the timeline commitment in Afghanistan."
"The United States and certainly NATO allies, as best we can tell, are holding the line in terms of their decisions to ramp down on a timetable," she said. "But there is also time... for a change of position on that, should the Afghan political process stall."
Obama sabotaged Afghaistan when he ordered all combat against Al Qaeda and the Taliban cease and all US Armed Forces to retreat from the caves along the Afghan-Pakistan border where Bush had them holed up. Then, he gives Al Qaeda and the Taliban "safe passage" throughout Afghanistan, which they used to re-insert themselves into the population Bush and the Karzai government had them isolated from before Obama's retreat and surrender.
The end result is the government of Afghanistan was sabotaged to the point where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are a threat to take the country over again. Thus, with Al Qaeda and the Taliban having coerced the population sector they regained control of after Obama sabotaged the war, they have enough representation in the government to sabotage any US-NATO initiative, which is exactly what you are seeing now.

This is exactly what the Taliban and Al Qaeda wanted since they started the war. This allows them to take the country over again, just like it was on 9/11(2001).
Obama is one of the Islamist terrorists at war with the United States. The only reason this situation exists is because Obama gave Al Qaeda and the Taliban "safe passage" throughout Afghanistan and allowed them to re-insert themselves into the population where they could terrorize them into putting them into the government.
Typical of Democrats since the end of World War II, any enemy of the United States is a friend to the Democrats.
