Bag of Randomness for Thursday, September 10, 2020

I’m predicting the only Texas high school football teams who will complete this season will be those 2A and lower. They aren’t as populated and can more easily social distance in school and within their own communities. I at least think 90% of all six-man schools will complete their season.

Tuesday was the first day students could physically attend class at WifeGeeding’s school. Later that evening we received word a teacher was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Trump just gotta Trump. Audio recordings of him admitting he knew how dangerous COVID-19 was going to be despite playing it down in public are released and he distracts by stating he’d like to nominate Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court. And his defenders just put ear muffs on and refuse to live in reality.

Robot dogs join US Air Force exercise giving glimpse at potential battlefield of the future

Emerging from United States Air Force planes, four-legged robot dogs scampered onto an airfield in the Mojave Desert, offering a possible preview into the future of warfare.
But the exercise conducted last week, one of the US military’s largest ever high-tech experiments, wasn’t a movie set.
Flying into a possibly hostile airstrip aboard an Air Force C-130, the robot dogs were sent outside the aircraft to scout for threats before the humans inside would be exposed to them, according to an Air Force news release dated September 3.
The electronic canines are just one link in what the US military calls the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). It uses artificial intelligence and rapid data analytics to detect and counter threats to US military assets in space and possible attacks on the US homeland with missiles or other means.
Tech. Sgt. John Rodiguez, 321st Contingency Response Squadron security team, provides security with a Ghost Robotics Vision 60 prototype at a simulated austere base during the Advanced Battle Management System exercise on Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, Sept. 1, 2020. The ABMS is an interconnected battle network – the digital architecture or foundation – which collects, processes and shares data relevant to warfighters in order to make better decisions faster in the kill chain. In order to achieve all-domain superiority, it requires that individual military activities not simply be de-conflicted, but rather integrated ??? activities in one domain must enhance the effectiveness of those in another domain.

South Dakota governor uses coronavirus relief funds for $5 million tourism ad despite COVID surge

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s administration announced Tuesday that it is using federal coronavirus relief funds to pay for a $5 million tourism ad campaign aimed at drawing people to the state. The move comes even as the state emerges as one of the nation’s top hot spots for COVID-19 infections.

The 30-second spot, which premiered on Fox News alongside Noem’s speech at the Republican National Convention last month, features the governor saying that “with our breathtaking landscapes and wide-open spaces, we’re a place to safely explore.” But the state currently ranks second in the country for new cases per capita over the last two weeks, with 439 new cases per 100,000 people.
