It takes a practiced hand to create the complicated coffee beverages served at coffeehouses nationwide. CrunchBase says that the baristas train long and hard to create the perfect latté, and so on. On that note, baristas be warned, Cornell University has created a robot who can perform their job with precision.
In a sense it is just amazing how far technology and robotics have come in the last decade yet it is also concerning in regards to job redundancy. If these machines catch on in retail chains the end result will be thousands of lost jobs and a tremendous spike in unemployment.
Robotic advancements could eventually create competition for low paying jobs in the United States leaving millions of unskilled people without a source of income. Perhaps, for now, we should just celebrate a job well done on the creation of the Robobarista.
While many names have been floating around our ears for the past couple of years when we think of success and entrepreneurs, the list does not stop and Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg. Bruce Levenson has not gained as much attention as those previously mentioned but he is still known and has placed his foot in many doorways. He has managed the art of multitasking in a way that would make a juggler look like a joker. While he is known as the owner of the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Thrashers, and Philips Arena, and co-founder of United Communications Group- a business information company. He is also a director of TechTarget, an adviser of BIA Digital Partners, partner of GasBuddy, and invested in teaching students about philanthropy leading to a global outreach.
He is the true story of success considering that all of this, going back to his earliest pursuits with his company UCG, began from a storage unit in his father’s liquor store. Now that company is reaching millions of people all over the world and it has received hundreds of awards, specifically one hundred and twenty-five of them. He then continued to pursue his dream of working with professional sports and the aforementioned team has managed to make it to the NBA playoffs for the past seven years in a row. Mr. Levenson’s assistance in education has also been above and beyond as many other have failed in these attempts. For the past four years he has managed to build the Center of Philanthropy and fund Management at the University of Maryland. Students at the University of Maryland have been able to gain experience and practice in giving money away to businesses, therefore able to graduate as philanthropists. These programs are expanding so rapidly that it’s even reaching places outside of the U.S. In all of the things that Mr. Levenson has done he has managed to succeed in all of them by actively pursuing them with passion.
On Wednesday, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd opened a new cloud computing center in Silicon Valley, underscoring its global ambitions against tough competition.
The new California data center is the ultimate measure of expansion for a Chinese company on US soil, in a market dominated by Amazon.com Inc, Microsoft Corp and Google Inc.
The data center will target US companies seeking a presence in both countries, said Ethan Yu, Vice President of Alibaba Cloud International Business.
Aliyun, a division of Alibaba Cloud, wants the new data center to initially provide Chinese companies with US operations, including retail, internet and video games.
“This is a very strategic move for us,” said Yu, who declined to say how much Alibaba invested in the data center and its location is not disclosed for security reasons.
“International expansion is really a long-term company strategy for the coming years. Eventually we will expand to other regions, for example, to the east coast or the central United States, to meet our customers demand” he added.
Aliyun, which has been compared to a fledgling version of Amazon Web Services, began as part of the internal technical infrastructure of the company, but has since expanded to lease storage space and processing for small and medium enterprises in China internet .
Dan Newlin has become aware that the firm is facing Chinese and foreign competitors, ranging from China Telecom to Microsoft and Amazon. Check out Newlin’s Facebook page for more info.

North American Spine provides surgical treatment for athletic injuries with new medical technologies. The surgery center is based out of Dallas, Texas, and offers specialized spinal care with a minimally invasive surgical process. Its new AccuraScope procedure and neurostimulation treatments have an eight-two percent success rate for back and neck injuries. The center treats athletic injuries, using a 3D surgery animation. Patients can expect to save money by reducing their costs for medication and additional office visits.
Sports injuries are effectively treated with newer medical technologies, which have been developed to correct certain spinal conditions that athletics can experience. Sports injuries include tissue trauma to various central nervous system areas of an athlete’s body. An AccuroScope procedure for back pain can help to correct bulging or herniated discs resulting from athletic falls or sudden injuries. This newer form of sports surgery can be effective with neck pain and with forms of degenerative disc disease from over use of spinal areas.
A laser spine surgery procedure has become an elected choice of spinal correction for many spine and neck injuries. Leg and foot tissue traumas can be improved by using new state-of-the-art healing procedures, which use laser-type surgical tools. Surgeries that are prescribed for sports injuries use a form of minimally invasive surgery procedure that aims to reduce trauma and bleeding. These leading-edge technologies help to improve an athlete’s healing process without damaging any tissue areas.
A minimally invasive spine process uses a percutaneous surgery incision that is less than fifteen millimeters. A form of endoscopic surgery is used with or without an image intensifier and navigation assistance. Leading-edge technologies allow a surgeon to locate any damaged tissue quickly with an image intensifier and surgical navigator. This medical precaution during all minimally invasive procedures helps to avoid any damage to vascular, neural and visceral tissues.
Today’s athlete requires surgical processes that are effective and that do not require a significant amount of down time away from the demands of any sport. North American Spine uses this type of advanced medical technology, and, also, assists modern athletes with injury prevention counseling. Significant pain symptoms can be quickly remedied, and other forms of abnormal spine conditions are immediately addressed.
Even as the Federal Communication Commission announced last week that access to the Internet should be treated as a public utility and that telecommunication companies should not be able to limit speeds based on the amount a user pays for access, the European Union has decided to consider proposals that would allow telecoms to create traffic lanes where some companies and individuals would get faster service because they can pay more.
The European Union has more telecoms with far more political sway than many tech companies in the United States and the threat to net neutrality overseas is high. At this point, it doesn’t look like a decision will be made until the summer, but a lot of business owners and Internet users around the world are holding their breaths with this news. After all, if multi-lane access is approved overseas, companies in the United States could use that decision to argue in federal courts that the FCC’s ruling was the wrong decision to make and then try to have it overturned.
Will the Europe Union say “No” to net neutrality?
Well, I asked some of patients in Dr. Daniel Amen’s waiting room and the consensus was it’s likely that the majority of representatives from EU states will oppose any laws that allow telecoms to charge more for faster speeds.
