Surreal pics for surreal White House. And yes, those are real photos.
I’m still adjusting to hearing “President Trump”, it just seems surreal, it’s one amazing story. It’s gonna really be really surreal to me when he addresses Congress tonight.
My current position at work is to help automate things so it’s something I think about all the time. I went to the pharmacy the other day and couldn’t help but think how automation will most likely eliminate the job of the local pharmacist.
Interesting baseball factoid from Peter King’s MMQB:
Joe Jackson, the great-great-grandnephew of Shoeless Joe Jackson, is a Double-A outfielder in the Texas Rangers organization, MLB.com reports. Shoeless Joe died in Greenville, S.C., in 1951. Joe the Ranger was born in Greenville, S.C., 41 years later. Shoeless: 6-1, 178. Joe the Ranger: 6-1, 180.
Somewhat related to the previous two bullet points, I often hear talk of putting a chip in a football so officials will know exactly where the football should be placed or if it goes past the goal line. I don’t think a “chip” is going to be the solution. What I think will happen is there will be sensors all over the field with the ball and uniforms made out of special material or some sort of coating which the sensors will be able to detect. The collaboration of the field sensors and material/coating will allow computers to place the ball correctly and tell exactly when a player’s knee was down.
It will be a private mission with two paying customers, not NASA astronauts, who approached the company. The passengers are “very serious” about the trip and have already paid a “significant deposit,” according to Musk. The trip around the Moon would take approximately one week: it would skim the surface of the Moon, go further out into deep space, and loop back to Earth, approximately 300,000 to 400,000 miles. The plan is to do the trip in the second quarter of 2018
