This is a video from Rhett and Link (whose truthful mobile house commercial is a timeless that I view bi-weekly) clarifying the rules of ‘Risky Settlers, Knights and Allies of the Lords of Rule of Earth, Pandemic Version’. It’s a jocular take on the trouble of finding out the policies of a game you’ve never ever played prior to. Me? I’ve sworn off board games ever before considering that I was dishonorably discharged from my post as Dungeon Master after I was caught concealing weighted dice in my wizard hat. Thank God they didn’t browse my magic pouch.
Struck the jump for the video.
Question by Lamont: Would there be different manufacturers of humanoid robots if they were ever to function properly?
I mean if one were to build a humanoid robot and it be a domesticated servant bot, could other companies start up and start manufacturing their own robots. Lets use the movie i robot for an example, could one company just manufacture it or would other countries have a right to build them to. Something similar to this would be different car companies such as ford, honda, or toyota.
Answer by Solve
Yes, when the population wants something different someone will allways supply it wether it is robots or smartphones

Adults see one version of the ad, children see another, more violent version.
The Spanish organization ANAR Foundation (Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk) just started a new street poster campaign that uses the process of lenticular printing to secretly send a message to abused children without alerting their abusers, even if they’re walking together.
The ad agency, Grey Spain, explains the process:
ANAR Foundation manages in Spain the european unique phone number 116 111, to attend children and teenagers under a risk situation. On this telephone number, only for minors, they can find the help they need in a totally anonymous and confidential way.
But, how can we get our message to a child abuse victim, even when they are accompanied by their aggressor?
Knowing the average height for adults and children under 10, GREY has created two different messages. Using an outdoor lenticular we show adults an awareness message, while children see a message where we offer them our help and show them the telephone number. A message only for children.
It is a revolutionary and creative idea, for sure.
But really: How many abused children is this going to actually help?
How many who see the ad will call the number?
How many abused children who see the message will get scared out of their wits?
And, how many monster abusive parents will also see the secret message?
How many of these posters have been put up in Spain? One?
I've emailed the ad agency.
This will clean up at the ad awards shows, for sure.
I just hope to god it actually does some good, and doesn't provoke any abusers.
NOTE: This Irish commercial is still far and away the most powerful child abuse awareness ad ever produced.
Anyone over 4'5″ sees this view, with this copy: “Sometimes, child abuse is only visible to the child suffering it.”
Anyone shorter sees the beaten child version of the poster, with this copy: “If somebody hurts you, phone us and we'll help you.”
Hybrid car sales in the US have been dominated by Toyota’s Prius family — but that could be changing as demand for Ford’s Fusion and C-Max hybrids continues to sharply rise. Bloomberg reports that the automaker’s share of US hybrid vehicle sales rose from three percent in April 2012 to 18 percent last month. Though Toyota still took in over half of April’s sales, it’s the only manufacturer ahead of Ford at this point. Ford is also on track to beat its own record for yearly hybrid sales — 35,496 vehicles — sometime this month.
Even so, it still has a ways to go to catch up with Toyota. Last year, the Japanese automaker sold over 236,000 hybrids in the US, and according to Bloomberg it expects to sell more than that in 2013. Sales…
If the Galaxy S III was gently mocked for its design, the S4 has been the unwitting focus of a full-on roast. In a video explaining its design choices, Samsung explains that while the Galaxy S III was inspired by nature, this time it decided to ask the question “how can we change people’s lives for the better?” It concluded that it should be more rational with the S4′s design, toning down the curves and eliminating some of its predecessor’s flourishes. This focus apparently helped the company make the phone thinner while including a larger display. The product designers say they still managed to introduce “emotional elements” through CMF (color, material, and finish) choices, though.
The parents of 22-year-old Alexander Heit released this photo to the press in the hope that it would prevent future tragedies.
He didn't get to finish his message.
This makes for a much more powerful PSA than the usual violent, bloody images created by big fancy ad agencies (examples below).
The police report says Heit, a Northern Colorado student, drifted into oncoming traffic, jerked the steering wheel and went off the road, rolling his car. Witnesses told police that Heit appeared to have his head down when he began drifting into the oncoming lane in the outskirts of Greeley, where the University of Northern Colorado is located. An oncoming driver slowed and moved over just before Heit looked up and jerked the steering wheel. Police said Heit had a spotless driving record and wasn’t speeding.
Heit died shortly after the crash, but his parents released the photo of his last text hoping it will stop future accidents.
“In a split second you could ruin your future, injure or kill others, and tear a hole in the heart of everyone who loves you,” Sharon Heit, Alexander's mother, said.

WikiLeaks has returned with its largest ever before launch of previously confidential information. The “Kissinger Cables” consist of over 1.7 million polite records from 1973 to 1976, of which 205,901 are linked to controversial US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. In overall, the release is around 700 million words long, and contains what WikiLeaks calls “substantial revelations about United States involvements with fascist dictatorships, specifically in Latin America, under Franco’s Spain (including about the Spanish royal household) and in Greece under the routine of the Colonels.”
