‘Amazon Go has been lauded over by the corporate media, presumably so Amazon doesn’t reduce their advertising spend in said media.
The retailer said it wants to cut-out the need to stand in line to make a store purchase.. in fact it wants to remove the checkout experience entirely. Which sounds great.
For example; you’re on a lunch break so you nip into an Amazon Go store, pick up the sandwich you want and walk out with it. Saving time and giving you the thrill of momentarily feeling like a thief but without the repercussions’
‘Donald Trump has picked retired Marine Gen. John Kelly to head the Department of Homeland Security in his new administration, people familiar with the decision said Wednesday.
The move would put a military commander who directly supervised U.S. operations in Central and South America in charge of one of the president-elect’s signature platforms: securing the border between Mexico and the U.S.’
‘A significant report into CIA torture will not be released, according to Representative Adam Schiff.
The 6,700-page Senate Intelligence Committee report contains details of waterboarding and other ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’, widely considered to be acts of torture and a violation of international laws.’
‘Dr. Mahin Khatami has written a scathing commentary on the HPV vaccine that was published this month (December 2016) in the journal Clinical and Translational Medicine. The title is: ‘Safety concerns and hidden agenda behind HPV vaccines: another generation of drug-dependent society?’
Dr. Khatami’s bio is quite extensive, and as a retired professor and former program director at both the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI), her criticisms of both the cancer and vaccine industries cannot easily be written off as the work of a ‘quack,’ which is the standard response from the medical industry who seeks to discredit anyone who does not tow the party line.’
‘President-elect Trump plans to select Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as the incoming head of the Environmental Protection Agency. The selection was first reported by Reuters Wednesday and attributed to an anonymous member of the Trump transition team. Progressives are already referring to the selection of Pruitt as a “worst case scenario” and vowing to fight his nomination.’
‘If you want to be a ‘Good Samaritan’ to the homeless in your community, you might want to check and see if it is legal first. All over the country, cities are passing laws that make it illegal to feed and shelter the homeless. For example, in this article you will read about a church in Maryland that was just fined $12,000 for simply allowing homeless people to sleep outside the church at night. This backlash against homeless people comes at a time when homelessness in America is absolutely exploding. In a previous article, I shared with my readers the fact that the number of homeless people in New York City has just set a brand new all-time high, and the homelessness crisis in California has become so severe that the L.A. City Council has formally asked Governor Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency. Sadly, instead of opening up our hearts to the rapidly growing number of Americans without a home, way too many communities are trying to use the law to force them to go somewhere else.’
‘In the weeks following Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in last month’s election, liberal journalists have launched an all-out assault on “fake news,” which some have blamed for the disconnect between political journalists and everyday Americans.
But many of those same journalists seem unable to agree on a consistent definition of what “fake news” is, oftentimes pushing leading conservative and alternative media organizations that provide ideological balance in the public forum under the same “fake news” umbrella alongside websites whose entire purpose is generating viral hoaxes.’
