Robots Break New Ground in Construction Industry

SAN FRANCISCO — As a teenager working for his dad’s construction business, Noah Ready-Campbell dreamed that robots could take over the dirty, tedious parts of his job, such as digging and leveling soil for building projects.

Now the former Google engineer is turning that dream into a reality with Built Robotics, a startup that’s developing technology to allow bulldozers, excavators and other construction vehicles to operate themselves.

“The idea behind Built Robotics is to use automation technology make construction safer, faster and cheaper,” said Ready-Campbell, standing in a dirt lot where a small bulldozer moved mounds of earth without a human operator.

Although I give Campbell an A+ for his ingenuity, on the other hand, when I consider inventions and technology like this,  how many people it is going to put out of a job, I think it is counter productive.

Thanks to or no thanks, robots have taken over a great deal of the jobs that used to be done by human-beings. If this trend continues, as I expect it will, in the future, the robot world will have completely dominated the work force in the world, and the already stagnant/wilted bodies and brains of the human race will completely dry up. Not to mention the unemployment situation.

Robots could replace nearly a third of the U.S. workforce by 2030 …

Nov 30, 2017 – Over the next 13 years, the rising tide of automation will force as many as 70 million workers in the United States to find another way to make money, a new study from the global consultancy McKinsey predicts. That means nearly a third of the American workforce could face the need to pick up new skills or …


More than 70% of US fears robots taking over our lives, survey finds …

With the progress of self-driving cars and robot carers, much of the rest of the country is worried about machines taking control of … The findings have wide-reaching implications for technology companies working in these fields and indicates the need for greater public hand-holding.

To me, that is not progress. What it amounts to is the rich getting richer by eliminating the human-beings from the work force and eliminating 1,00,000’s of jobs
I watched the interview awhile back 60 Minutes Charlie Rose  had with a robot and got chills up and down my spine.  Anyone that is not affected the same way; better wake up and smell the unemployment line.
Progress should be considered finding a cure for cancer, coming up with an answer to the dysfunctionality in the world, coming up with a solution to end world hunger, a way to rid the world of all the war-mongers or how to put toothpaste back in a tube.  Inventing way to eventually put 1,000’s possibly 1,000.000’s of people out of work is not progress, it is regress.
Some people may scoff at this possibility, BUTT they also laughed at man going to the moon.
It is only a matter of time before mankind (in PC Canada – people kind) that the human race is going to destroy itself in one way or another. They are working very hard to accomplish that goal!!
I guess I am not alone in my way of thinking.

They are slowly catching on

USA Today

Christian Schneider sure put it in prospective.

If you think about it, being a losing presidential candidate is one of the best jobs in America. No matter what you say, you come off way better than your opponent’s portrayal of you as a bloodthirsty gargoyle. You go on late night talk shows and ham it up with hosts who set you up to be self-deprecating and winsome. People still take you seriously, but you can finally say exactly what you want.

And as an added bonus to all this, you don’t have to actually be president.

Since the 2016 campaign ended, Hillary Clinton has demonstrated herself to be a singularly extraordinary former presidential candidate — “extraordinary” only in the sense that no ex-candidate has ever been worse.

I say give it a little time and the only hold-outs will be the imbeciles, along with CHC and Wild Bill. Even Helen – Ray and Stevie could see that, for the most part, PDT is doing what he promised or at least attempting to do so.  If he had more cooperation, he would have to change in a phone booth.


The more CHC open that fly trap the better she makes PDT look. I don’t think she is smart enough to realize that. She has blamed everyone on the planet for her lost election, everyone but the right person, herself.

Christian’s observation:

If Democrats want to keep winning elections, it’s time for them to file a restraining order against Clinton.

I think she makes a valid point.

I blame the media and the PC-ers

Sexual orientation top risk for suicidal thoughts in college freshmen

What a sad commentary as to how low our country has sunk.


Nearly one third of first-year college students have thought about suicide, according to a study across eight countries, and non-heterosexual identity or feelings were the biggest risks for this kind of thinking or behavior.

The media, through TV commercials,  movies, social media and the like, have jammed this sexual identity  down the kids today’s throats with such intensity, they have no idea who they are or what they want to be.

I have repeated this until I am blue in the face.


LET NATURE TAKES IT’S COURSE.  When the proper time comes in a kids life, they can make their own decision as to which road they want to go down. They DO NOT any outside intervention. This constant bombardment coming from every direction has the kids in a tail spin like an aircraft out of control. It is no wonder that 1 out of 3 kids contemplate sucking on a six inch gas line.

Every time a commercial comes on the BOOB TUBE there are subliminal messages engineered to influence the public.  From where I stand, 60% of advertising is detrimental to the young impressionable kids.

Unfortunately, I am speaking to deaf ears. This PC conspiracy that has taken hold of this country is too far gone to ever turn around.

All I can offer is my suggestions, hoping they make a difference. I know my preaching will not make a difference, BUTT I still try.

Next I will extend my sympathies to all the young kids coming up that are influenced by all of the crack-pots surrounding them. They have some tough roads to travel.

I think this mentality is more prevalent in the middle to upper class communities.  I don’t see much of it in the inner city. Which confirms my observation. The tougher a person is raised (without brutality) the stronger and more world-wise they are.  Pampering and spoiling a kid, in the long run, is the absolute worse thing for them.

It should be the responsibility of ours to make it a better world for the people that come after us. At least that was the goal in the OLD DAYS, when PC insanity did not permeate our society.

I hope that the offenders are proud of the misfits they have created. Personally, I think they are oblivious and too ignorant to see what is happening. All they are doing is looking to blame someone else for their stupidity.

Let the kids mature by themselves. My generation had no problem doing it.  Of all the things they need to develop properly, is NOT any advice or guidance from some degenerate nutcases.

Misery love company!!!!

A compliment, is a compliment, is a compliment; I guess …..

Trump ‘shocked the world,’ boxing promoter Don King says

Don King, the most famous and successful boxing promoter, tells FOX Business that President Donald Trump “shocked the world” when he won the presidency and has exceeded expectations as the leader of the free world.

“No one has carried the type of lightening rod activities since the 13 colonies wrote a letter to King George saying they wanted to discharge so they can be eliminated and independent Americans,” King said.

Ironically, Donald King is 100% correct. King may be a lot of different things; BUTT he is no fool. PDT has shocked the world and will continue to do so.

PDT and Donald King seem to be strange bed fellows. Both are very rich, both outspoken individuals, both famous, BUTT, both they come from the different side of the track.  We all know where PDT comes from.

Don King by Gage Skidmore.jpg

King speaking at FreedomFest in July 2016
Born August 20, 1931 (age 86)
Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.
Occupation Boxing promoter
Known for The Thrilla in Manila“, “The Rumble in the Jungle“, others
Children 3



King was born in Cleveland, Ohio, where he attended school and graduated from John Adams High in 1951.[4] After dropping out of Kent State University, he ran an illegal bookmaking operation out of the basement of a record store on Kinsman Road, and was charged with killing two men in incidents 13 years apart. The first was determined to be justifiable homicide after it was found that King shot Hillary Brown in the back and killed him while he was attempting to rob one of King’s gambling houses in 1954.[1] In 1967, King was convicted of second degree murder for the second killing after he was found guilty of stomping to death an employee, Sam Garrett, who owed him $600.[1]

Along with some of his other activities and accomplishments, some through nefarious dealings; King has risen to the highest paid, most well known boxing prompter in boxing history.

Depending on who one talks to, many have nothing praise for the man and others like Mike Tyson who King took over the coals, have nothing but disdain for the spiked haired celeb.

This is what Tyson said about the man.

Mike Tyson, the former undisputed World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, says of his former manager, “(King is) a wretched, slimy, reptilian motherfucker. This is supposed to be my ‘black brother’, right? He’s just a bad man, a real bad man. He would kill his own mother for a dollar. He’s ruthless, he’s deplorable, he’s greedy … and he doesn’t know how to love anybody.”[21]

King has been investigated for possible connections with organized crime. During a 1992 Senate investigation, King invoked the Fifth Amendment when questioned about his connection to mobster John Gotti.[20]

Lawsuits and prosecutions King was involved in:

Muhammad Ali

King has been involved in many litigation cases with boxers that were focused on fraud. In 1982 he was sued by Muhammad Ali for underpaying him $1.1 million for a fight with Larry Holmes. King called in an old friend of Ali, Jeremiah Shabazz, and handed him a suitcase containing $50,000 in cash and a letter ending Ali’s lawsuit against King. He asked Shabazz to visit Ali (who was in the hospital due to his failing health) and get him to sign the letter and then give Ali the $50,000. Ali signed. The letter even gave King the right to promote any future Ali fights. According to Shabazz, “Ali was ailing by then and mumbling a lot. I guess he needed the money.” Shabazz later regretted helping King. Ali’s lawyer cried when he learned that Ali had ended the lawsuit without telling him.[22]

Larry Holmes

Larry Holmes has alleged that over the course of his career King cheated him out of $10 million in fight purses, including claiming 25% of his purses as a hidden manager. Holmes says he received only $150,000 of a contracted $500,000 for his fight with Ken Norton, and $50,000 of $200,000 for facing Earnie Shavers, and claims King cut his purses for bouts with Muhammad Ali, Randall “Tex” Cobb, and Leon Spinks, underpaying him $2 million, $700,000, and $250,000, respectively. Holmes sued King over the accounting and auditing for the Gerry Cooney fight, charging that he was underpaid by $2 to $3 million.[23] Holmes sued King after King deducted a $300,000 ‘finder’s fee’ from his fight purse against Mike Tyson; Holmes settled for $150,000 and also signed a legal agreement pledging not to give any more negative information about King to reporters.[24]

Tim Witherspoon

Tim Witherspoon was threatened with being blackballed if he did not sign exclusive contracts with King and his stepson Carl. Not permitted to have his own lawyer present, he signed four “contracts of servitude” (according to Jack Newfield). One was an exclusive promotional contract with Don King, two were managerial contracts with Carl King, identical except one was “for show” that gave Carl King 33% of Witherspoon’s purses and the other gave King a 50% share, more than is allowed by many boxing commissions. The fourth contract was completely blank.[25]

Other examples include Witherspoon being promised $150,000 for his fight with Larry Holmes, but receiving only $52,750. King’s son Carl took 50% of Witherspoon’s purse, illegal under Nevada rules, and the WBC sanctioning fee was also deducted from his purse.[26] He was forced to train at King’s own training camp at Orwell, Ohio, instead of Ali’s Deer Lake camp which Ali allowed Witherspoon to use for free. For his fight with Greg Page he received a net amount of $44,460 from his guaranteed purse of $250,000. King had deducted money for training expenses, sparring partners, fight and airplane tickets for his friends and family. Witherspoon was never paid a stipulated $100,000 for his training expenses and instead was billed $150 a day for using King’s training camp. Carl King again received 50% of his purse, despite Don King Promotions falsely claiming he had only been paid 33%.[27] HBO paid King $1,700,000 for Witherspoon to fight Frank Bruno. Witherspoon got a purse of $500,000, but received only $90,000 after King’s deductions. Carl King received $275,000.[28] In 1987 Witherspoon sued King for $25 million in damages. He eventually settled for $1 million out of court.[29]

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson sued King for $100 million, alleging the boxing promoter cheated him out of millions over more than a decade.[30] It was settled out of court for $14 million.[31]

Terry Norris

In 1996 Terry Norris sued King, alleging that King had stolen money from him and conspired with his manager to underpay him for fights. The case went to trial, but King settled out of court for $7.5 million in 2003. King also acceded to Norris’ demand that the settlement be made public.[32][33]


King at Madison Square Garden in October 2001

In 2005 King launched a $2.5 billion defamation suit against ESPN, the makers of SportsCentury, after a documentary alleged that King had “killed, not once, but twice”, threatened to break Larry Holmes‘ legs, cheated Meldrick Taylor out of $1 million, and then threatened to have Taylor killed. Though the documentary repeated many claims already made, King said he had now had enough. King’s attorney said “It was slanted to show Don in the worst way. It was one-sided from day one, Don is a strong man, but he has been hurt by this.”[34]

The case was dismissed on summary judgment with a finding that King could not show “actual malice” from the defendants. Judge Dorian Damoorgian ruled, “Nothing in the record shows that ESPN purposefully made false statements about King in order to bolster the theme of the program or to inflict harm on King.”[35]

Lennox Lewis

In May 2003, King was sued by Lennox Lewis, who wanted $385 million from the promoter, claiming King used threats to pull Tyson away from a rematch with Lewis.[36]

Chris Byrd

In early 2006, Chris Byrd sued Don King for breach of contract and the two eventually settled out of court under the condition that Byrd would be released from his contract with King.[37]

As we can see by Kings fan club; he is no altar boy. BUTT, I guess in PDT’s situation; a compliment, is a compliment, is a compliment regardless of who it comes from.

The secret to a successful life is to be versatile, at the same time cautious, both in our personal and private lives. It take a lot of different personalities/characters to make the world go around. If a person is streetwise and careful, they can make lemonade out of lemons.

Some people look at a possible relationship between PDT and the Judo Guy as taboo.  An old say from a person very dear to me was; I will break bread with them, BUT I will not sleep with them.


In our lives there are various relationship that need to be developed in order to make progress. It is not necessary to like the person in order to deal with them. Just because we may be dealing with someone of a questionable background, it doesn’t mean that we are part of the same circle.

SOOOOOOOO; for PDT to have a relationship with Putin or Donald King, that does not mean he is (figuratively) sleeping with them. Diversity is what makes the world go around.

I would suggest, the compliment from King to PDT is a positive; BUTT ……

May be more to it than meet$ the eye


Companies behind Florida bridge collapse have history of fines, failures, lawsuits

The construction industry has a long history of kick-backs/pay-offs and the good old boy mentality. You scratch my back and I will fill your coffers.

I am not implying that this is the case with the bridge collapse in Florida; BUTT there had to be something going on behind closed doors for these two companies with the track record they have, were awarded a project that lives depended on.


The walkway bridge was SUPPOSED to constructed to make it easier and safer for students from FIU to cross the freeway from one side to another, not to kill them.

I see in the picture above, there IS an area in the median strip where a vertical center brace could have been placed for additional support. BUTT, who am I????

Both of the contractors on the $14.2-million pedestrian bridge, MCM Construction, a Miami-based contractor, and Figg Bridge Design, based in Tallahassee, both have worked on dozens of projects nationwide, ranging from military facilities to schools. BUTT, always the BIG BUTT; the performance and safety history of the 2 companies is something to be desired. Both have been fined numerous times for safety and construction violations.

Based on those fact, neither of them should have been allowed to bid on the project, let alone be awarded its construction. The end result; there are 6 people dead and 14 injured because of their incompetence and some possible improprieties.

This thing will be bounced back and forth in the courts, each side claiming it was POORLY engineering and the other side will claim improper construction methods.

It would not surprise me in the least; based on the history of the 2 companies, if there were not some exchanging of gratuitie$  between the parties involved in the awarding process.

Kick-backs, corruption and behind door deals in business is as old as Noah Ark.  There is nothing wrong with a favor or two being extended, lunch, dinner, possibly a gift certificate to a strip joint, BUTT when it involves the safety and well-being of the public, that is where the line should be drawn.

The Virginia Department of Labor cited Figg for four violations in 2012 after a 90-ton slab of concrete fell from a bridge it was building near Norfolk, according to the Miami Herald.

In addition, Figg was hit with a $28,000 fine and the Department of Labor said the company modified a girder without properly inspecting it or getting written consent from its manufacturer, The Virginian-Pilot reported.

This will be a wait and see for the final outcome as to where the fault lies, that is if the TRUTH is ever revealed, If the contractors are found to be negligent and they are not barred from bidding on any and all work, city, state, federal throughout the country, we know there is someone hiding in the wood shed. They should be scrutinized to the 10th degree. I have seen companies get thrown off of a bidders list and the next day they are up and running under another name.  It happens everyday.

If the engineering firm that designed the walk-bridge is found negligent, they should also be fined heavily and shit canned from any other work. I saw one possible design flaw just from a picture, not having a center post erected and I was never on the job.


Forget the mathematics; if a center beam as shown in the pictured would have been included in the bridges design; I would not have been blogging about this tragedy today and there would not be 6 people dead and 114 injured.  I will place that blame on the design engineer, BUTT an experienced contractor should have brought this to someones attention. For all I know, they may have???????????????????????

This should have been the company’s slogan.


Many times; the long way around is the short way home.

We all are just a $$$$ sign on the big computer screen ……

Fox News

Woman claiming she was raped in bathroom on American Airlines flight sues airline after rejecting $5,000 to settle

As far as big business goes today; we all are just a $$$$$ on the big computer screen and one click away with the DELETE button.

The problem with big business; they are making too much money and do not give a $hit about the customers. Take the airline industry. When they 1st started flapping their wings, 40 -50 years ago, they literally stood on their head, catering to the passengers by going above and beyond.

Little by little, as soon as the dollar$ started rolling in, the whole complexion of customer service has changed. Instead of the free little bottles of booze, they started charging for the fire water – instead of a good hot meal, they substituted with cold sandwiches, maybe –  they charge for checked baggage –  pillows, blankets, for changing seats and soon I hear, they will be charging for the staled air we breath.

All that matters to them is the bottom line. They could care less about customer service.

Here we have a young lady Aubrey Lane that was RAPED in the restroom (not a bathroom) on an American Airlines plane and after the fact was NOT even called by customer service to see if she was alright. The BIG Time Airline offered her 5 G’s to go away and she refused it. I personally think 5 million would be more like it.

Sexual misconduct on planes has persisted for years, but there’s a growing movement to call awareness to the issue. It’s being driven by people like Aubrey Lane, who shared her story with @dallasnews 


To put the icing on the cake for Ms. Lane; the rapist was NOT stopped or detained after he got off of the plane.

This kind of mistreatment of customers is not only with the airlines, but with every major industry. It is far and few between that we see people who work with the public that are pleasant and accommodating as they should be.  BUTT, that tip jar is ALWAYS next to the register.Why should I have to tip if I buy an ice cream cone??

The pressure comes from the top to bang out the buck$. That constant pressure distracts the employees from doing their jobs efficiently and courteously.  On top of it all, very few working people are paid what they deserve. Plain and simple; big business is making too much money.

Surprisingly; BUTT only way after the fact; a spokesman from American Airline, Ross Feinstein admitted to Fox News the allegations of the rape and stated American Airlines was “deeply troubled” and there is still an ongoing investigation.

I say;  bull. They were so deeply troubled, they offered the lady 5,000$ to crush the matter. That adds insult upon injury and no better than a punch in the stomach.


However, Feinstein did admit that airline officials failed to contact Lane when she reached out with her claim, as they should have, given the severity of her allegations.

Pathetic explanation followed:

“We should have followed up immediately afterward with Ms. Lane to assure her how seriously we were taking her claims. It is important to note that the way we work with our customers after an incident like Ms. Lane’s has changed over the past few months,” he said.

“If this incident happened today, Ms. Lane would have received a call from our customer relations team making sure that we were providing her with the best possible care during this difficult time. We’re continually focused on improving our customers’ experience and this is a positive change we have made in the last few months,” he added.

I think authorities should investigate into whether American Airlines served booze to  already drunk rapist.  That would be a very significant finding in the matter.

Just as a curiosity I checked to see what are the top 20 best airlines in the business to travel with. NOT to my surprise; NOT one American based airline made the list.

What does that tell us FOLKS???

I made this observation years ago. IF the Japanese car makers did not come to America and put the financial heat on the American auto manufacturers; we would still be driving substandard junk cars. Their competition forced the auto makers to step up top the plate and build a quality car.

Possibly the same heat should be put on the airlines to keep them in line.
