1…………> “I Need A Hug”: Baby Chimp
An orphaned baby chimpanzee named Mussa that was rescued from poachers in Africa has taken a scenic flight to its new home — sitting on the pilot’s lap, and even “helped” adjust the plane’s throttle during the flight, rescue organisation Lwiro Primates in the Democratic Republic of Congo said.
“People ask me why I didn’t put Mussa in a cage during the flight,” pilot Anthony Caere posted on his Instagram page.
“A baby needs hugs and compassion instead of being locked up in a cage during a stressful flight.”
2…………> Hamburger Flippers: The End
The Caliburger restaurant chain in Pasadena, CA is testing a hamburger flipping robots in 50 of its locations that are using image recognition and infra-red sensors to cook 12 burgers to perfection at the time.
3…………> More Boots, More Guns: China DOD
The Chinese leadership said the defence budget will increase to 1.11 trillion yuan (€142 billion, $175 billion), an 8.1% increase in defence spending in 2018, marking a sharp increase in the military budget compared to the previous two years, according to Prime Minister Li Keqiang.
China will “advance all aspects of military training and war preparedness, and firmly and resolvedly safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests,” said Li during the NPC.
“Faced with profound changes in the national security environment,” the Communist Party must continue to provide absolute leadership to the military, he added.
4………..> Applied Global Warming: Reduce CO2 Footprint
“After 14 years of saying to myself, ‘I do my part because I’m a climate scientist,’ I decided it was time to do more. I got the news at a research site in the remote Pacific Ocean where we were studying a reef that had just been killed by global warming. It was a shock, and I think had a much deeper resonance of despair and doom for those of us working in the climate science and policy world. For me personally, it was the start of a profound two-month depression. We have to talk about climate protection solutions. It’s not enough to just complain,” said Kim Cobb, a researcher at Georgia Tech University in the United States, as she took concrete steps to reduce her greenhouse gas footprint, and reflect on the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States.
As millions of other concerned inhabitants of our celestial paradise who are painfully aware of global warming’s damage to the planet, she has responded to recent political developments and changes in climate policy by trying to cut her own carbon footprint.
“[We] need inspiration, leadership, and a sense of collective action. And scientists can play a key role in building that momentum.”
5…………> “Oscar” The Communist: Down To 19%
“The Tinseltown elite genuinely hates the people they expect will pay to see their movies and watch their TV shows. Why do we support them?” that is the reaction of Media Research Center’s Dan Gainor about the “divisive, left-wing politics Oscars” charade by the well dressed, good looking Hollywood punks led by “Trash Commander in Chief” Jimmy Kimmel, a cultural disgrace whose ratings collapsed down to 19%, compared to 22.4% last year.
