The robots respond to some stimuli on their own but require a human to make decisions.
They used a robot like this on mars. If it were to come to a big hole it would stop on its own rather than crash. Then it would wait for the operator to tell it what to do next.
In a radioactive area or when disarming military hardware such devices are also used.
Now there seems to be some being designed to control a freight train, freight air craft, even a remote coffee shop. Rather than drive 20 miles out in the desert a coffee shop/gas station would have a remote operator who would work via a terminal and the internet. Most operations in the place would work by themselves but when something stopped working properly it could be rebooted remotely.
and you wouldn't have that 40 mile commute each day either.
I think a lot of jobs are going to have remote applications similar to this.
To prevent terrorism; public safety, justice and homeland security agencies at all levels of government are hampered today by lack of access to the information they need.
The biggest problem with this document is the title giving the wrong impression and the writing of the document making what they are asking for obscure.
domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking.
Though it mentions violence against children and violence against women it doesn't mention violence against men by other family members.
They also ask that he address the impact of recent Supreme Court decisions on the above.
different except there aren't as many girls now. But my point was
that if you continue with your education you wouldn't go into the
service while many others have a PHD by 24 or so (my father had his
at 21). My father was drafted at the beginning of WWII when he was
32. He had turned down a commission because he didn't want to enlist
for 6 years. Ended up a staff sergeant in the European theater and
because he spoke Italian, French, German, Greek and a little russian
we imagine he was used to interrogate and translate (also a degree in
law). Being drafted after 30 is a bit unusual though I think.
We need some way get people to continue to opt for advanced job training or education. By instituting a draft, while providing the choice as to service but an alternative is that if your in school you wont be drafted until your finished. Then at a certain age you no longer have to be drafted (maybe 24). If you want to provide the choice not to serve you should still use the motivation of the draft for more education. Got any ideas on this?
Medicaid is the largest funder of people with disabilities. 40 states are decreasing the funding of programs to the most vulnerable people due to the economic downturn.
