Earlier this month, the Russian weapons manufacturer Kalashnikov Group made a low-key announcement with frightening implications. The company revealed it had developed a range of combat robots that are fully automated and used artificial intelligence to identify targets and make independent decisions. The revelation rekindled the simmering, and controversial, debate over autonomous weaponry and asked the question, at what point do we hand control of lethal weapons over to artificial intelligence?
A veteran terrorist was reportedly captured attempting to flee Libya for Tunisia. So what. Lots of terrorist are captured. What makes this guy so special? Well, he is one of a growing number of jihadists or terror leaders who have been released by Obama over the years and I’m sure there will be many more.
Mike Rowe, of “Dirty Jobs” and “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” fame was asked by a fan to implore his fans to get out and vote in the upcoming election. Mike had some great and rather unexpected advice for the fan – something you never hear from other TV or movie stars.

Small wonder there are almost 93,000,000 unemployed or underemployed people in the United States. But it’s not just here. People are hurting everywhere.

For American youths there are after-school programs, sports and clubs kids can join to keep them busy. Yet for the male youth in say… the Gaza Strip, there are no extracurricular activities.
Not that we ever did, but we don’t have to worry about the youths of Gaza anymore, for Hamas has a solution to not only fight the boredom, but also for the children to learn a skill – at camp.
A UK Independent/Washington Post article chronicles such camps for kids and young adults.
