Quote of the Day

Wis­con­sin Sen­a­tor Ron John­son in an arti­cle from Gan­nett Wis­con­sin on his col­league Tammy Baldwin’s sig­na­ture on a let­ter to the NFL to get them to drop the nick­name of “Red­skins” from its Wash­ing­ton, DC-based franchise:

And when it comes to foot­ball,” he said, “I will con­cen­trate on the Green Bay Packers.”

Remem­ber when you used to mock Con­gress for putting pri­or­ity on hear­ings on steroids in base­ball over real issues last decade?  The 50 Demo­c­ra­tic sen­a­tors who sent that let­ter to NFL Com­mis­sioner Roger Good­ell deserve the same treatment.

Mumbai Pizza Chain Already Delivering Pizzas by Drone

Way to high­light that inno­v­a­tive spirit America…NOT!

The FAA, killing “Pizza by Drone” since 2011.

Would you like your pizza home-delivered by an unmanned drone? That may not be impos­si­ble in future, for a little-known pizza chain in Mum­bai last week suc­ceeded in mak­ing a test-delivery less than 3km away from its out­let in Lower Parel by using a remote-controlled, GPS-enabled drone.

The ‘cus­tomer’ was actu­ally a friend of the chain’s CEO, so it was tech­ni­cally not a sale, as com­mer­cial deliv­er­ies by drones are not allowed in India. Yet, in a way, it was a first for a prod­uct deliv­ery Ama­zon has only planned. On May 11, the drone took off from the Lower Parel out­let and, fly­ing at a speed of 30km an hour, manoeu­vred its way atop the city’s mill dis­trict to reach its des­ti­na­tion, a high-rise in Worli, in nearly 10 minutes.

The drone dropped the 13-inch plain margherita pizza, weigh­ing half a kilo, on the 21st floor rooftop (where it was col­lected by the ‘cus­tomer’) before tak­ing off again for the return jour­ney. The speed with which the deliv­ery was made thus beat the record for most lead­ing pizza chains, which man­u­ally deliver piz­zas within 30 minutes.

The drone used in the oper­a­tion was custom-made, said an offi­cial from the pizza chain, adding that an auto engi­neer friend of his had helped him make the flight pos­si­ble. The offi­cial said the chain had car­ried out the test-delivery as an exper­i­ment because it wants to be ready when reg­u­la­tions in India allow for such meth­ods of prod­uct delivery.

Drones are quite com­mon in India. The motion pic­ture indus­try there has appar­ently been using them for years.

NY State Guns Laws Costs it Jobs to Alabama">NY State Guns Laws Costs it Jobs to Alabama

This was feared for over a year, but now it is indeed happening.

Nearly 200 years after Eliphalet Rem­ing­ton II forged his first rifle in Ilion, res­i­dents of the small cen­tral New York vil­lage are get­ting the bad news they have feared for more than a year: Rem­ing­ton Arms is mov­ing pro­duc­tion of two of its gun lines to Alabama.

While the com­pany did not announce the out­right clos­ing of the facil­ity that has been home to Rem­ing­ton since 1816, gun rights advo­cates said that day is now likely mov­ing closer and they blame the state’s 2013 NY SAFE Act gun con­trol law.

This could very well be the begin­ning of the end of Ilion,’’ said Tom King, pres­i­dent of the New York State Rifle and Pis­tol Asso­ci­a­tion, the state chap­ter for the National Rifle Association.

The Buf­falo News last Sep­tem­ber fea­tured Ilion in a story about res­i­dents there grow­ing increas­ingly wor­ried that Rem­ing­ton, the anchor in the vil­lage of 8,000 in Herkimer County, was under grow­ing pres­sure to leave New York since pas­sage of the SAFE Act.

Rem­ing­ton said it will move pro­duc­tion of its Bush­mas­ter line of semi-automatic rifles that are no longer legal for the com­pany to sell in New York with­out mod­i­fi­ca­tions. It is also send­ing work on its pop­u­lar 1911 R1 pistol.

Rem­ing­ton is now the third gun man­u­fac­turer in New York State to announce plans to move part or all of its pro­duc­tion facil­i­ties to another state after the Empire State passed some of the strictest gun laws in the coun­try.  This announce­ment only effects 80-some jobs in the upstate New York area, but it is unknown if it is the start of a more dras­tic deci­sion in the months and years to come.
