Incident Filings by Pilots
Several Hazard Reports just released by the US Navy document a number of sightings and encounters by Navy pilots with unidentified flying objects or UFOs. The Hazard Reports were released under a Freedom of Information request. They document six separate incidents. This is in addition to the three videos released by the US Department of Defense a few weeks ago. The videos and images were shot by Navy pilots encountering incredibly fast and agile "unidentified aerial phenomena" over both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The UFOs were spotted by at least seven Navy pilots and a US Navy ship.
Official UFO Sightings by US Navy Pilots
The Hazard Reports just released were officially filed by six Navy pilots during the past decade. The pilots, in their official reports, said the UFOs encountered looked like missiles, unmanned drones, while some of the other aerial objects were smaller. In at least one of the incidents, Navy pilots could not get radar to lock in and track the object.
UFO, Drone or Balloon?
In another incident that occured in 2013, the pilots thought the UFO might be a drone, but no operators could be located. The pilots said the wingspan of the object was 5 feet. It was white in color with "no distinguished features." One of the pilots followed the object for an hour off the coast of Virginia. Two other reports released by the Navy involve balloon-like objects in April 2014. One of the ballons almost caused a mid-air collision with an A-18 F Super Hornet. These are yet more incidents of UFO sightings with the added credibility of US Navy pilots filing official reports.
Robot, Cut My Lawn Source: Husqvarna Mowers Robo Mowers Powered by Batteries - No Gas It's at the top of my robotic wish list. A robot lawn mower. No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers. Green Robots at the Cutting Edge There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements. And, if your lawn is loaded with trees and hills, your robot mower is going to be a lot more expensive. Grass Vacuums Robot mowers look a lot like big robot vacuums such as iRobot's Roomba. They roam and groom your lawn. Their
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living Source: Stock images of football players Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.

Superstar Robot Packers Source: CMC CartonWrap Superstar Customers The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci. Big Business in Italy CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
