TAXE FOR ROBOT
BG : thinks that, to ease the inequality and offset the social costs implied by automation’s displacement effects, either Nexus should pay income tax, or Luke should pay a hefty tax for replacing Ken with a robot. And this “robot tax” should be used to finance something like a universal basic income (UBI). Gates’s proposal, one of many variants on the UBI theme, allows us to glimpse fascinating aspects of capitalism and human nature that rich societies have neglected for too long.

Ken makes a decent living operating a large harvester on behalf of farmer Luke. Ken’s salary generates income tax and social security payments that help finance government programs for less fortunate members of his community. Alas, Luke is about to replace Ken with Nexus, a robot that can operate the harvester longer, more safely, in any weather, and without lunch breaks, holidays, or sick pay.

This is a tiny micro not, it was put in my head threw my ear, and now my cousin an friend can see my thought on a computer, somehow it is running of electrons an neutrons in my head, he lives a mile away or little less away from me, it was ran off or is run off Bluetooth an hooked there phone to a computer an discovered after me being able to hear them in a low whisper they could somehow see my thoughts yes my thoughts and yes it is amazing discovery, his name is Jeffrey Hunt and his wife Tiffany an our buddy Brian Mock, Jerry George, and Walker have truly discover something our central intelligence could use to our advantage in just about any incident, they were astonished when they hooked my mind into a computer as I was, just thought the world should know about this break through, thanks

"World's first battery-powered rocket" readied for launch

Though there have been tremendous advances in space technology in recent years, when it comes to getting into space, we're still like cavemen trying to get beyond the breakers on a floating log – at least, that's the view of New Zealand-based company Rocket Lab. In the hopes of increasing the number of satellite launches to over 100 a year and placing constellations of small satellites into orbit numbering in the thousands, the company has developed a "battery-powered" rocket engine to lift its Electron launch vehicle at almost a tenth of the cost of conventional boosters.

Liquid rocket engines are hungry beasts that require huge quantities of propellants for every second of flight. To manage this, engines use turbopumps to feed propellants into the combustion chamber. In a conventional design, a centrifugal or axial-flow turbopump is driven by a gas turbine. This has done the job very well since the first rocket turbopumps were developed in the 1940s, but they're complex, heavy affairs that need their own fuel systems to operate.

Reliability measures of electrical grid has risen to a new norm as it involves physical security and cybersecurity. Threats to either can trigger instability, leading to blackouts and economic losses.

Most of us take turning the lights on for granted. In reality, the energy we draw from the electrical grid to brighten homes, freeze food and watch TV is part of a complicated and widespread system. Understanding that system's vulnerabilities and reliability is a crucial step towards improving its security.

Safe at any speed
MIT’s Hyperloop team levitates through its first test-run competition.

Yiou He is ready to get to full speed. On a recent weekend in California, she felt the thrill of victory: She and MIT classmates became the first to successfully shoot a levitating Hyperloop pod down a 1-mile vacuum tube during a SpaceX Hyperloop competition. “We proved our design worked,” she says with satisfaction.
Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk envisions the Hyperloop as the “fifth mode of transportation.” It’s a concept dreamed up by Musk that involves the delivery of people through a system of tubes maintained in a near-vacuum that connect major cities. Dramatically reducing air friction, the pods travel at close to the speed of sound, using low-energy propulsion systems.

Featured video: MIT Hyperloop
MIT is one of 30 student teams testing high-speed concept pods as part of a SpaceX Hyperloop competition.

A team of MIT student designers is heading to California with a concept pod, a vision for the future of transportation, and a singular intention: to win the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition.
This weekend the MIT Hyperloop Team will be firing their concept pod along a 1-mile test track in Hawthorne, potentially bringing the world closer to what SpaceX CEO Elon Musk describes as a “fifth mode of transportation.”
The Hyperloop, a high-speed transportation concept dreamed up by Tesla Motors and Musk, involves people riding inside a system of tubes connecting major cities. In the new travel paradigm, people are propelled in pods through tubes maintained in a near-vacuum. In the absence of air or surface friction, the pods travel at close to the speed of sound, using low-energy propulsion systems.
