Marshall Brain warned us about this more than ten years ago. Here's his article: http://marshallbrain.com/robotic-nation.htm 
More proof that we are living in the future... burger flipping robots.

May sound silly, but consider that there are over 160,000 fast food restaurants in the United States. Each of them spend over $100,000 per year on kitchen labor. Add into that the potential that the burgers made by this robot are going to be better quality and served faster than those made in a standard kitchen... as well as cheaper. Fast food restaurants will have to automate to compete once these start being deployed.

To this company's credit, they are also looking to fund training programs for people displaced their robots, to learn how maintain and repair their products.

Beautiful!
Sunrise at Dead Horse Point State Park - Utah
View Large for Best Impact.

This shot captured last May on my first trip to the Utah arches area.  Our first morning there we went to Dead Horse State Park for sunrise.  We got there an hour or so before sunrise, giving us time to look around a bit before the sun came up.  The sky did not cooperate as much as we would have like, being pretty much a solid gray.  However, the sun came through and gave us a gorgeous glow on the red rocks below.  

For a while, it was quite an exhilarating morning, having the area to ourselves.  The quiet beauty eventually broken by the arrival of a tour bus full of tourist. 

Five bracketed frames processed in Lightroom 5 and Google/Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.  A little selective sharpening in Photoshop afterwards.

Too true!
What Liberalism Is - #7

“Liberalism is saying that the government should confiscate guns from NRA members and kill them if they resist and then claiming that you have no idea why they think that they need guns to defend themselves.”
