As is currently en vogue for any company making a product that ends up in consumers’ hands, US hot dog company Oscar Mayer is expanding its Weinermobile fleet with a phallic flying drone that can (supposedly) drop a single hot dog on someone not too worried about what they’re eating.If Silicon Valley had its way, we’d only eat things that fell from the sky.The drone itself appears to be a custom creation, weighs just under three kilos with a flight time of around 15 minutes, letting it fly about a mile before needing to land for a recharge.It has enough lifting power to carry a single wrapped hot dog during flight, but details on condiment capacity are still unknown.If you prefer those fancy hot dogs piled high with pickle spears, tomato wedges, and peppers, you’ll presumably be limiting the WeinerDrone’s flight capabilities.The practical applications of a hot dog-shaped drone that can only fly for 15 minutes?

A.S. Watson, the retail unit of Li Ka-shing’s flagship conglomerate CK Hutchison, plans to plough US$160 million over the next three years on technology, logistics and staff training to stay competitive in a fast-changing retail landscape, as mobile and online sales continue to gain popularity.“The three-year budget covers the application of new technology, big data analytics, e-commerce tools, warehouse and logistics as well staff training,” she said as the 175 year-old Hong Kong-based retailer launched the “MoneyBack” mobile app on Tuesday, that will complement its membership card-based customer loyalty programme that has been operating in the past decade.“We need to keep ourselves up-to-date and stay relevant by being among the first to offer the various mobile payment services,” she added.The retailer has 230 information technology staff located in Hong Kong, London and Milan running some 190 projects.Those include working on artificial intelligence-based systems, such as machine learning of consumer preferences, so its customers are better informed than ever of promotional offers.“In the old days, customers would come in and listen to your sales pitch on different products,” she said.

Now, a new web app built by former WIRED senior editor Kevin Poulsen shows not only exactly who these haters and losers are, but hopefully what their blocking could mean for our first amendment futures.Because if people make use of it, TrumpBlocks.me could be the definitive collection of everyone Donald Trump has blocked on Twitter.Of course, blocking Twitter users isn't anything new for Trump; he's habitually frozen out critics and pests since long before he entered the Oval Office.And when he does decide to take away citizens' abilities to engage with his daily onslaught of 140-character missives, he's potentially messing with the very same rights that keep us free in the first place.So when Poulsen heard about Trump's most recent round of high-profile blocks (think Stephen King), he decided to document the occasion with cold, hard data."It's fascinating that we live in a time when you might wake up in the morning and find that the Leader of the Free World has banned you from reading and commenting on what he says online," says Poulsen.

The Congressional Budget Office1 on Monday announced an unsurprising but important conclusion: The Senate version of the Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is broadly similar to the House version that has been discussed for months.And it would reshuffle the private insurance system set up under Obamacare in a way that is likely to increase costs for older people, while reducing premiums and other costs for some younger people.The overall number of uninsured people is projected to be slightly different under the Senate plan than the House version, which the CBO said would result in 23 million more Americans being uninsured, although the agency estimates that many of the people losing coverage would be those who chose not to buy insurance because it would no longer be legally required, as it is now under Obamacare.Both bills would repeal a variety of Obamacare tax increases that largely targeted wealthy Americans and the health care industry; those tax cuts are worth about $541 billion in the Senate bill, compared to $664 billion in the House version.Broadly, the agency concluded, “the average subsidy per subsidized enrollee under this legislation would be significantly lower than the average subsidy under current law.”The CBO goes so far as to say that few low-income people would buy health insurance, even though they would qualify for subsidies under the Senate plan, because the tax credits would be pegged to plans with high deductibles.

Sonic boom reduced to 'soft thump' by well-designed shockwavesNASA says the preliminary design review of its Quiet Supersonic Transport (QueSST) project suggests it is possible to create a supersonic aircraft that doesn't produce a sonic boom.We've been able to build supersonic passenger planes for decades, but they're tricky things.Russia's Tupolev Tu-144 proved highly unreliable.Concorde's design saw it capable of subsonic flight but because it was so noisy it generated complaints when flown over populated areas of land.Even when flying below the speed of sound, it was often noisier than always-subsonic aircraft and generated plenty of complaints around airports, which try to keep things as quiet as possible so as not to disturb nearby residents.
Over the past couple of months, umbrella rentals have become the latest sharing economy fad to hit China with three umbrella sharing startups pocketing funds of several million RMB (around USD 1 million).Last week in Hangzhou, local officers confiscated tens of thousands of umbrellas from umbrella rental startup Esan, just a day after the startup placed these umbrellas throughout public spaces in subway stations, train stations and shopping malls.The umbrellas were initially hung on street fences, but the city’s management unit took actions to take them down under the “city’s appearance and sanitation” regulation, local media reported.Zhao Shuping, Esan’s founder and CEO, told local press that the company is indeed facing issues over placement methods and will be trying to put these “shared umbrellas” into buckets instead.Founded in 2017 in Shenzhen, Esan in May secured RMB 10 million (USD 1.5 million) for its angel round.Its app functions just like a bike-rental app, showing locations of nearby umbrellas.

50 Silicon Valley tech giants, including Google, Microsoft, S, CBS, Viacom and others have urged a US federal appeals court to incorporate sexual orientation protections and rule that a law banning discrimination would protect LGBT employees.The tech giants' brief, submitted to the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, is the first time that a sizeable group of companies have backed protections for LGBT groups and arguments against employee discrimination."Our nation's employers and employees would be far better off with a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender ("LGBT") workforce that need not experience or fear discrimination for simply doing their jobs," the amicus brief filed by a team from Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, said.The firms asked the federal appeals court to revive a lawsuit filed by Donald Zarda, a skydiver, who sued his former employer Altitude Express, arguing that he was fired from his job after he revealed his sexual orientation to a client and she complained.Zarda, however, lost the lawsuit when a district court dismissed the case, adding that Title VII did not protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation.However, in May, a full court agreed to review the case after a different appeals court in Chicago ruled for the first time that Title VII protects LGBT workers.
When one of Bertie Wooster's American chums needs help in getting his hard-nosed uncle to approve of his intended, Jeeves demonstrates his colossal mind power with the equanimity of a true gentleman's gentleman. Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE, was a comic writer who enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of more than seventy years and continues to be widely read over 40 years after his death. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of prewar English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career. An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by more recent writers such as Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie and Terry Pratchett. Sean O'Casey famously called him "English literature's performing flea", a description that Wodehouse used as the title of a collection of his letters to a friend, Bill Townend. Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a talented playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of fifteen plays and of 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies.
