Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo almost there

"A Montrealer who is a Canadian citizen by birth says she was barred from entering the United States and told to get a valid visa if she ever wants to cross the border." Well, I guess we know which government agency is auditioning for the role of Brown Shirts. So much for the worlds longest, peaceful border. Thanks, CBP. (Grokked from Geoff Landis)

"The next time you place an order at a fast food joint, you could see a robot behind the counter. Flippy is an AI-driven kitchen assistant that can flip burgers and place them on buns, and it debuted today at a CaliBurger restaurant in Pasadena, California." As with most industrial robots, it's not a complete solution and requires humans to do finishing tasks. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt begins (well, for him "continues") the rollback of actual science at the EPA. In this case, he's not sure that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and that humans are behind the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere. This is not just academic, this is suicidal. (Grokked from Charles Oberndorf)
