Robot restaurant where machines cook and serve food to customers

A restaurant in Kunshan, China, employed a team of 15 androids to cook and deliver food. The cute side of the Robocalypse. 

The restaurant has a total of 15 robots in heights of 1.2 meters. Each robot costs 40,000 yuan (6500 US dollars).

As doormen, cooks and waiters, the robots can work continuously for eleven hours after a night charge, and are able to use 40 basic language expressions, such as welcoming sentences to customers.

Singular instance? Nope. There is another restaurant in Harbin, China with 18 robot workers and a fully automated japanese sushi restaurant.

Combinations of Vaccines Best to Fight Polio

New research suggests a one-two punch could help battle polio in some of the world’s most remote and strife-torn regions. Giving a single vaccine shot to children who’ve already swallowed drops of an oral polio vaccine greatly boosted their immunity.

The World Health Organization officials said the combination strategy already is starting to be used in mass vaccination campaigns in some hard-hit areas and is being introduced for routine immunizations in developing countries, too.

I’ve been sick for like two weeks

which means that in the last 10 days I haven’t been able to consume my regular 3-5 cups of coffee a day because I’m too sick to hold much down outside of tea and crackers. My homicidal tendencies are starting to show lol

astronomicona said: Nobody became aware when the Jerry Lewis Telethon has been going almost every year since 1949 and he raised over 2 billion for Lou Gherigs disease aka ALS? How come they haven't had any breakthroughs? Throwing money at a problem doesn't cure it. Jerry Lewis kid is still limping around and not one stitch of progress has been made whatsoever

No idea, unfortunately, even with very sophisticated and innovative techniques on how to treat many diseases, we still run into many snags. Sometimes the path a disease takes is too multifaceted or the virus/bacteria causing the disease mutates too rapidly, sometimes there’s a lack of interest (like when it happens to the poor or those in the ‘3rd world’) and sometimes it’s just too difficult to find a pathway of intervention that leads to proper treatment and sometimes the ‘fire’ goes out and popularity in funding or finding a cure dies down when the disease stops being big news. The biggest issue with LG I believe is finding the exact pathway to massive nerve cell degeneration :( You can check it out here ( scroll down to ‘What research is being done?’ also the ‘what causes ALS?’ section is a good read on how scientists know why others are triggers but have no clue as to other people).

It’s insanely hard to believe that Curiosity has been traversing Mars for a full two years now, but, as these images show, time has certainly taken a toll on it. See before and after images of the damage: http://bit.ly/1pP0GpQ

Griffon vultures have long powerful necks for getting under the skin of the dead animals they feed on and short downy feathers on their necks to prevent them from getting too dirty. Vultures wash regularly and are surprisingly clean - when not feeding. Vultures are currently the fastest declining family of birds in history - we must learn to love them before we lose them.
