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.
Superstar Robot Packers 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.
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
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.

New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "Change Toothpaste" Potentially Cuts 900 Million Plastic Toothpaste Tube Throwaways Per Year
Tubes of toothpaste aren't something you think about but their impact on the global environment is hugely negative. 900 million toothpaste tubes are discarded into oceans and landfills globally every year. Importantly, it takes 500 years for them to breakdown, which means virtually every toothpaste tube created is still discarded someplace in the world. And, the tubes, which contain multiple layers of plastic, polymers and resins, can't be recycled. A company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta Canada just came up with a solution in the form of tablet toothpaste.
"Paste with No Waste"
Entrepreneurs Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince are the inventors and founders of CHANGE Toothpaste. Their tablet toothpaste is an all natural vegan substance that works just like toothpaste but has no harsh chemicals. You pop the pill in your mouth, cr…
