Justice Ginsburg 'up and working' after breaking ribs, nephew says

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is “up and working” and making jokes after being hospitalized with rib fractures, her nephew said on Thursday at the premiere of a new movie about her early career fighting for women’s equality.

Daniel Stiepleman, who wrote the script for the film “On the Basis of Sex” about his aunt’s work as a young lawyer, with input from the justice herself, told Reuters the 85-year-old Ginsburg was “doing...

Taliban Slaughter Elite Afghan Troops, and a ‘Safe’ District Is Falling

Elite forces were sent to rescue Jaghori District from a determined assault by insurgents. Within days, most of the American-trained commandos were dead. Jaghori’s 600,000 people are poor and live in an isolated part of the central highlands, an area that has no paved roads or electric lines, with terraced wheat fields and abundant orchards of almond and apple trees. But the district is famous for how peaceful it had been. Most people say they cannot remember the last time there was a murder or serious robbery. And the district’s education record is aspirational for the rest of the country: Schooling is nearly universal among girls, and much higher than the Afghan average for boys. A week ago, the Taliban broke a longstanding truce and attacked Jaghori from three directions in what appears to be a determined effort to take the district, as the insurgents have done elsewhere with increasing frequency, inflicting steadily rising death tolls on government forces. “The Taliban attacked us because this is where all the schools are, and because here there are even more girls in school than boys,” said Mubarez Nabizada, who works for the charity Shuhada, which runs orphanages and a hospital.

The world's first humanless warehouse is run only by robots and is a model for the future

Mujin, a start-up spun out of Tokyo University, has developed industrial robots that can fully automate warehouses and fulfillment centers. After doing this for JD.com in China, it plans to enter the U.S. marketplace. At a recent technology show in Tokyo, a large robot arm reached into a full-sized mockup of a shipping container and began unloading boxes from it. Set on a platform that moved back and forth, the robot was doing a job usually carried out by warehouse workers and forklift operators. The goal of the company that’s developing it, Mujin, is total automation. The system, still a prototype, doesn’t work perfectly — it accidentally damaged a box during the demo — but it’s going to be trialed in warehouses in Japan this year.

    To be fair, this has been built up over a number of decades. US reliance on Saudi oil is the root of this problem, and that isn't a Trump thing, that goes back a long way. US presidents have been kissing butts of Saudi royals for decades, and for decades they've had a miserable human rights record to say the least.
