Everything is a science.. from how much ingredients go into baked goods or meals to how much liquor goes into the perfect evening cocktail. . . So much science that people, with human error, can mess things up on a grand scale.
Enter the robot revolution.
The future of manufacturing has come and gone, with robots replacing so many people. Restaurants and bars are next.
So much for the fight for Fifteen when the fight of the future may just be for a job in itself..
The MONEY QUOTE: When restaurateur Patrick Beijk opened Mofongo’s Distillery & Cocktail Bar in the Dutch city of Groningen in 2013, he went looking for a machine that could scale the space’s jewel-colored wall of spirit bottles. The robot he bought to do the job saves time and draws in curious customers, he said. When Mr. Beijk opened a wine bar last year, he bought a two-armed cobot programmed to ex…
It’s a jarring sight for members of the First Congregational Church: The underwear-clad buttocks of Marilyn Monroe mooning the downtown parish. A 26-foot Seward Johnson statue illustrating the star in her iconic pose from “The Seven Year Itch” was installed this week in Latham Park as part of the Stamford Downtown Special Services District’s “Art in Public Places” series that lasts through the summer. But much like the subway grate stirred up her skirt, Monroe has created a whirlwind in just a few days in Stamford. Lorri Tamburro, a lifelong Stamford resident, was disturbed when she visited the statue with her husband and watched children climbing up Monroe’s leg and looking up her skirt. “I just find the position to be offensive,” she said. “It was, in my eyes, very disrespectful. I looked at it and I think because of what I saw with all these little kids looking up, the height is ruining it. It’s ruining beautiful Marilyn.”
Officials said tha…
Reaction across the net has been strong and supportive.. While there were initial reports that the movie had to be re shot and re-screened to ensure viewer support (especially people angry at the end) this initial finished product trailer appears to capture the spirit of the original Halloween, along with the music and feel. There is one interesting part where people are asking if Michael Myers was Laurie Strode's brother, with one person answering that it was just a rumor and not true.
The mask in the film appears extremely similar to HALLOWEEN 2's version..
It will be interesting to see the way John Carpenter takes this script and re imagines the original storyline of the babysitter killers he made famous in 1978--40 years ago this year.
Will the magic of Michael Myers continue with this generation? Or. . . has too much time passed for the iconic HALLOWEEN slasher to remain frightening?

The latest from the Hawaii volcano scene according to REUTERS:
A stream of lava as wide as three football fields flowed over a highway near a junction at Kapoho, a seaside community of rebuilt after a destructive eruption of Kilauea in 1960.
The lava flow left Kapoho and the adjacent development of Vacationland cut off from the rest of the island by road, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense agency.
Also, lava destroyed a freshwater lake, boiling away all of the water in it, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported late Saturday, local time. MORE
Toxic sulfur dioxide gas emissions have created an additional hazard. So too have airborne volcanic glass fibers, called "Pele's hair," wispy strands produced by lava fountains and carried aloft by the wind.
One resident, Nancy Avery, said the glass strands hurt like paper cuts, slicing into her fingers and feet, toes exposed because she wore only sandals. She tried to pick up a strand but, "It just kind of melte…
At least six people were killed and another 20 injured on Sunday when Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupted violently, spewing a stream of red hot lava and belching a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions. "It's a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village. There are injured, burned and dead people," Sergio Cabanas, the general secretary of Guatemala's Conred disaster agency, said on radio. "We are evacuating and rescuing people and have reports of 20 wounded, six dead and disappeared," said Cabanas.

The volcano, about 25 miles south-west of the capital Guatemala City, has been spewing black smoke and ash into the sky.
A total of about a million people have been affected by the eruption, the Guatemalan government says.
Viacom said Saturday that the TV reboot of HEATHERS will not air on Paramount or any other Viacom properties.
HEATHERS was a 1988 cult favorite that featured teen murder and suicide.. The remake not shelved was based on the film starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater..
It was set to premiere in March, but was delayed after the Parkland, Fla., shooting in which 17 people were killed. Viacom says the subject matter is not suitable in the current environment. It is, however, open to the possibility of selling the show to a more fitting outlet.
He was being interviewed by the GUARDIAN.. Murray's words about Harvey Weinstein appear to be a bit uninformed?
Murray was asked to respond to a comment the disgraced former mogul made in 2014: “Being a Murray-ite is a religion, where you can behave as badly as you want to people, and they still love you. I used to feel guilty about behaving badly, and then I met Bill, and it feels so much better.”
“Well, I think Harvey was saying something funny, and you can take something someone said a few years ago out of context, but I think that’s a funny thing he said,” Murray says, seemingly unbothered, before pivoting to the wider context.
“Are you asking for a comment about Harvey Weinstein? I mean, I don’t know exactly what he’s being accused of yet, but I know some of the people involved in that situation, one very sweet person, and it hurts to hear her speak about it,” he adds. “Really, it hurts…I feel the pain about it, and the pain is not over.”
In videos once posted to Dr. Windell Boutte’s public YouTube channel, the board-certified dermatologist can be seen singing as she cuts into a patient or rapping and dancing with surgical instruments in hand during surgical procedures.
At times, assistants in scrubs sashayed alongside her.
BENADRYL CUMMERBUND..BENEDICT Cumberbatch saw crime in the making, and reportedly jumped out of his Uber cab to help a cyclist from the food delivery company Deliveroo, who was being attacked by a group of would-be muggers in central London!
