Amazon’s Picking Challenge Spotlights Robotic Advances

Tuesday was the Amazon Prime day, where super deals were offered to shoppers of the online store who pay a fee for extra services. Last year’s Prime Day broke records with its total of 34.4 million items ordered in eligible countries worldwide. That task requires mega processing capability that depends on computers and automation, particularly the company’s […]

Rasmussen Poll: Majority of Voters Believe Government Acts against Their Interests, Particularly in Trade Deals

The pundit class and the press generally were caught flat-footed about the success of Donald Trump, and before that, they bashed the Tea Party as racist and mean-spirited for wanting a restoration of Constitutional government, national sovereignty and other traditional values.

Donald Trump was not the first person to notice that the globalized economy of elite […]

Security Guard Robot Is Sighted in San Francisco

I’ve reported earlier about the robot security guard. The Knightscope machine is a 300-pound snoop-bot that scoots around parking lots, recording license plates and other useful data.

The security robot is large and imposing, although it is not capable of aggressive action against bad behavior other than setting off an alarm.

What’s interesting about a recent report from […]

Syrian Refugee Flood Continues, Now with Added Job Displacement

President Obama continues his project to overwhelm the American people with hostile diversity from abroad by using immigration as a weapon. Syrian refugees pour in, despite FBI Director Comey’s warning that they cannot be adequately screened for jihadists. The numbers keep rising as Obama strives to push 10,000 sketchy Syrians through the gates before the end […]

Karen Tribespeople Are Happy to Pluck Turkeys in South Dakota

The PBS Newshour has a chipper little story that begins with informing viewers about the fastest turkey tail lopper in a poultry processing plant in Huron, South Dakota — who happens to be a refugee. In fact, when Nyo Maung is on vacation, his supervisor says, the productivity of the place slows down.

Isn’t that heartwarming? You […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Slams Hillary Clinton’s Plan to Sabotage US Citizen Graduates

Candidate Clinton thinks every foreign STEM graduate with an advanced degree should get a green card stapled to their diploma, immediately placing them in the front of the line for US jobs. How does that help American students who already struggle against cheapie foreigners flooding the STEM workers pool in this country?

It doesn’t. Hillary is […]

Trump Thumps the Great God Globalism

Candidate Donald Trump delivered a well crafted speech on Tuesday which attacked the globalist economy as harmful to American workers and destructive to the middle class. He criticized powerful interests, like Red China for its currency manipulation and our own government for its policies that have become such a menace to the general good.

The North American […]

America's Truckers Face Self-Driving Technology

Many jobs that are being replaced by automation are somewhat small in terms of the number of workers in each employment category, so the overall cumulative effect has not been adequately noticed. However drivers are a huge group with millions of workers, plus the collateral businesses that are built around track drivers in particular, like […]

Automation Is Seen as an Alternative to Outsourcing

This is something of a good news story, because when smart machines are chosen over shipping US jobs overseas wholesale, there are likely a few human workers required to assist the robots. At least for the time being.

Below, Generac Power Systems brought back its manufacturing from China, but the plant went from 400 workers in […]

Amazon’s Successful Automation Boosts Employment — For Now

Amazon’s automated warehouses continue to show how rapidly smart machines are taking over tasks that were performed by humans. A few years ago, workers pushed carts for miles around the warehouse picking out items for customer orders. Huffpo reported in 2011, “Some workers at Amazon.com’s Allentown, Pennsylvania warehouse are reportedly willing to contend with working […]

Networked Self-Driving Cars Are Moving Forward

Big changes are planned for the nation’s transportation, although the citizens have not been consulted about whether they want private ownership of cars to be pushed to the side as the government plans for a system of self-driving cars hooked up to enormous computer networks.

Not that long ago, self-driving cars were just a spark in […]

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions Reiterates Trump Support for Immigration Enforcement

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo had an interesting discussion with Senator Sessions on her Sunday morning show, where he reminded viewers that immigration should be designed to serve the American people. Interestingly, Bartiromo clearly respected Sessions as an expert on “one of the most fundamental issues for any election, for any country.”

Sessions emphasized Hillary Clinton’s […]
