    At the South Philadelphia high-tech makers’ space NextFab, creators of all types work on projects using laser cutters, robots, and a room full of 3D printers. Walt Barger, who manages the printing operations there, is standing between two printers the size of refrigerators, noting both their power and price tag. “It’s an older printer, but it’s still a $40,000 machine,” he said, pointing to one. “And the one next to it, the ProJet, is a $100,000 machine.” Lately, Barger has been extra vigilant about the kinds of things people are hoping to create here. “Our staff is always monitoring.

    Plans for a sprawling "high-tech-meets-retail" metropolis have been unveiled in Dubai. The mega mall will be the largest leasable retail space in the world, spanning over 100 soccer fields in size.

Designed as a destination outright, the ground floor will host celebrity performances, concerts and theater shows in a futuristic entertainment arena with 3D projection mapping,...

    Convenience Store Decisions ^ | August 8, 2018 | Staff
    More foodservice establishments are finding success with the versatile Korean barbecue trend. Globally-inspire food trends continue to entice Americans. Long before the PyeongChang, South Korea 2018 Olympic Winter Games Korean culture was diffusing into America at a rapid pace. The Korean wave swept in with K-pop, K-beauty, K-drama, K-food and now, according to recent data from The NPD Group, a global information company, K-BBQ. Pounds of Korean barbeque sauce shipped from broadline foodservice distributors to U.S. independent and micro chain* restaurants increased by 120% last year and continues to grow. K-BBQ is primarily sold by broadline distributors to Asian-casual dining...

  • Hogan's Heroes

    08/14/2018 8:21:22 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 83 replies
    YouTube is such a time capsule. When I was growing up, one of the shows my father used to watch was "Hogan's Heroes." I had not actually watched the show since the early 1970s so the show itself was long forgotten but the theme music was always a bit of an earworm, popping up randomly in my head from time to time during the decades since. About a week ago, I noticed that entire episodes of Hogan's Heroes was on YouTube and decided to click on one. As the opening credits played, everything was instantly recognizable to me even though...

    People Magazine ^ | August 14, 2018 | Natalie Stone and Aili Nahas
    Penn Jillette is claiming that President Donald Trump made “racially insensitive” remarks during his time on Celebrity Apprentice, which were captured on tapes that still exist. Jillette, a professional magician who appeared on season 12 of the NBC reality series, confirmed to Vulture in a new interview that series creator Mark Burnett has tapes of Trump making the controversial statements. Burnett did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Trump “would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable. I don’t think he ever said anything in that room like ‘African-Americans are inferior’ or anything about rape or grabbing women,...

    Poland’s defense minister today called an LGBT march in-country as a march of sodomites which was focused on promoting an ideology rather than civil rights. Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said Sunday on TV Trwam, a Catholic, pro-government station, that the march of 5,000 people the day before in the city of Poznan was an example of city authorities focusing on “ideology” rather than taking care of daily municipal issues, reported Associated Press. He called the march “another parade of sodomites who are trying to impose their own interpretation of civic rights on other people.” The Visegrad Group of countries, consisting...

    Much has been said and written about Christopher Steele’s authorship of the notorious document that alleges Russia-Trump collusion. According to Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS (who plead the Fifth and only spoke through his lawyers), Steele was hired by them in June 2016 to gather information about “links between Russia and [then-presidential candidate] Donald Trump.” Pursuant to that business arrangement, Steele prepared a series of reports styled as intelligence briefings, some of which were later compiled into a collection of documents and published by a number of media outlets and later become known as the “Trump dossier.”...

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    I know what you’re thinking: there’s a subway in LA? Joke aside, for our younger readers, Total Recall is science fiction movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie is based on a dystopian short-story (“We Can Remember It For You Wholesale”) written by one of the best science fiction authors in the world, Philip K. Dick respectively. Here’s the scene I am hinting at in the title: The movie was made almost 30 years ago, in 1990, and what do you know: Los Angeles is now preparing to become the first city in the United States to install subway body scanners,...

    TRUMP!!! You're Goin' To The Moon!!! In my numerous years (not saying how many) Trump is the gift that just truly keeps on giving. One Smack-down after another on the "golden calves" that make up the leftists entire pantheon of jerrybuilt castles in the air. Wunderbar. It's like getting a daily dose of high-powered schadenfreude. Oh how I've come to love leftist schadenfreude and you can too. Leftist misery keeps me up at night mirthful and mightily merry like a glassy-eyed bedlam-ite. (No comments please). I had thought of going the same old route that I've seen before, you know...

    Let's get something straight: Antifa is the fascist arm of the Democratic Party. If you want to know where the party is headed, look where its youths are. Antifa speaks for all Democrats when it chants, “No border, no wall, no USA at all!” Think not? People in the 1970s blew off the Weather Underground as radicals who had nothing to do with the party. But whom did Democrats nominate in 2008? And who was his political mentor? And who was his religious mentor? And who was the communist he put in charge of the CIA? This was no accident...

    RIMELAN, SYRIA – “Where does all our oil go to?” my Kurdish driver asked as we drove past more than a dozen hefty trucks loaded with crude oil. The cargo convoy was heading to Syrian regime-held areas. Syria’s seven-year civil war has left the Kurds with increasing power over the oil fields in their territory, adding yet another layer of complexity to the already complicated picture of the war-torn country. The Democratic Union Party (PYD), the main party in Syrian Kurdistan, took control of most Kurdish cities in July 2012. The takeover didn’t involve fighting with Syrian regime forces as...

    When the Unatego School District Board of Education voted to close the Otego Elementary School in February 2017, a committee formed to decide the fate of the building. In a 4-2 vote on Monday, Aug. 6, the board accepted an innovative farming proposal. AgZeit LLC has high hopes. The proposal bills the collaborative project as “a new way of doing business that will economically revitalize Otsego County and the Mohawk Valley Region and help New York State once again become the breadbasket for the entire northeast.” The Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council prioritized agribusiness initiatives in its 2017 Progress...

    Many companies take the approach of designing products, services and experiences that are targeted at the majority. And occasionally if there are resources and a strong business case, they turn their attention to serving niche audiences. But there are increasingly more anecdotes that support leaning into a different approach moving forward. Design for the niche, win the masses. A few weeks ago while I was in New York, I ate at a restaurant that was entirely gluten-free. I am gluten-free for health reasons, and it was a rare treat to go to a restaurant knowing I could eat everything on...

    Violent and at times hysterical reaction to a reform movement is understandable. Stakes are huge, at the moment a key player is Special Counsel Mueller. He may not be an evil man, but his role as prosecutor of heretics for the Deep State is The description of Mueller as the “Grand Inquisitor” is being used, but that job description included the privilege of state murder. Minus that but with his dedication to persecution Mueller is right up there with the most unreasonable prosecutors in history. This article attempts to review similar figures, political conditions and how today’s political hysteria may...
