Made in USA... by robots

Can high-tech reverse the outsourcing of clothing manufacturing? Researchers at Georgia Tech are teaming up with Atlanta-based startup SoftWear to design robots capable of manipulating flexible fabrics through conventional sewing machines. Their goals: shorter turnaround, greater customization and a "Made in USA" label on the clothes you wear.
“Made in U.S.A.” could soon be back on the clothes you buy, thanks to high-tech innovation.

Gaming for national security

Researchers at Duke University have teamed up with the developers of the mobile game "Airport Scanner" to crowdsource data on how the human brain finds (and misses) targets during searches. It's not your traditional psychology lab.
Could playing a video game on your smartphone improve airport security?

Beer evangelists spread the gospel at bars

We're covering a fun story at Smith's Olde Bar. (No, really! We're actually working.) Atlanta Beer and Hymns is a ministry that takes the church to where the people are. "And it just so happens that lots of people are at bars," says organizer Karen Slappey. Article: http://fxn.ws/125r0TW Video: http://tinyurl.com/k577erm

Disturbing, but effective

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has produced a new round of hard-hitting anti-smoking ads featuring real people living with tobacco-related illness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a new round of aggressive anti-smoking ads as part of its “Tips from Former Smokers” campaign.

Built for a war zone. Deployed in suburbia

I have very mixed feelings on this. On the one hand, as a former officer myself, I'm a firm believer in properly equipping police agencies. There's also a case to be made that American police have become over-militarized. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the optics of this either. Most people don't want to feel like they live in a police state.

The Greatest Generation(s)

"It's an honor standing next to both of you," 94-year-old D-Day veteran Sherwin Callander told two U.S. military service members, as the three prepared to take the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance. "We need young people like you to keep this country free." More than 250 friends and strangers helped Callander return to the beaches of Normandy for the 70th anniversary of his heroism.

"We cannot rewrite history, but we can right history."

That's what Judge Mark Hays told a South Carolina courtroom as he overturned the 1961 convictions of the "Friendship Nine." The group of African-American college students served a 30 day sentence of hard labor for sitting at a whites only lunch counter in downtown Rock Hill. In this video, the CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights explains why their "jail, no bail" strategy proved to be so effective.

This date in history...

The C-130 "Hercules" made its first flight on August 23, 1954. Sixty years later, C-130 aircraft are still in production. The C-130 is versatile, reliable and, for one of the engineers working on it, a lifesaver.
Tim Nguyen regards the C-130 “Hercules” as a “good friend.” The 60-year-old military aircraft has been the focus of his professional career, and quite possibly saved his life.

Center for Civil and Human Rights to open in Atlanta

I got to preview the new Center for Civil and Human Rights, scheduled to open in Atlanta Monday. “This isn’t a memorial,” says CEO Doug Shipman, who explains what sets the center apart from other civil rights museums. Article: http://tinyurl.com/lcc9wyr

Zapping Bacteria

Metal containers packed with raw oysters are dipped into a pool containing radioactive cobalt at the Gateway America facility in Gulfport, Mississippi. Company officials believe they're on the cusp of a trend that could make the U.S. food supply safer. The CDC estimates that, each year, foodborne diseases cause one in six Americans to get sick and 3,000 to die. Is food irradiation the answer? Video: http://tinyurl.com/n6da6ae
