Rock ‘n’ Roll legend Chuck Berry dies at 90.

HILLEL ITALIE and JIM SUHR
Associated Press 

NEW YORK (AP) — Chuck Berry, rock ‘n’ roll’s founding guitar hero and storyteller who defined the music’s joy and rebellion in such classics as “Johnny B. Goode,” ”Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” died Saturday at his home west of St. Louis. He was 90.

Emergency responders summoned to Berry’s residence by his caretaker about 12:40 p.m. found him unresponsive, police in Missouri’s St. Charles County said in a statement. Attempts to revive Berry failed, and he was pronounced dead shortly before 1:30 p.m., police said.

Berry’s core repertoire was some three dozen songs, his influence incalculable, from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to virtually any group from garage band to arena act that called itself rock ‘n roll. . . . Read complete Report/w video

Editor’s note: Founded in 1945 by University of Chicago scientists who had helped develop the first atomic weapons in the Manhattan Project, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists  created the Doomsday Clock two years later, using the imagery of apocalypse (midnight) and the contemporary idiom of nuclear explosion (countdown to zero) to convey threats to humanity and the planet. The decision to move (or to leave in place) the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock is made every year by the Bulletin‘s Science and Security Board in consultation with its Board of Sponsors, which includes 17 Nobel laureates. The Clock has become a universally recognized indicator of the world’s vulnerability to catastrophe from nuclear weapons, climate change, andNEW TECHNOLOGIES emerging in other domains.

Legendary blues musician B.B. King died on Thursday in Las Vegas, his attorney told The Associated Press. Cause of death was not released. He was 89.

Born Riley B. King in Berclair, Mississippi, and raised by his grandmother, the future “King of the Blues” purchased his first guitar for $15 when he was just 12 years old. He dropped out of school in the 10th grade, and spent much of his early years picking cotton and working as a tractor driver.

While he began singing in a gospel choir at church, the blues took root in King during his teen years. The blues is considered by many to be the only truly indigenous American music, and over time, King would become its foremost ambassador. . . . Read Complete Report

Apache land could be given away to a foreign mining company after the House approved a bill that would allow Resolution Copper to acquire land in the Tonto National Forest in Arizona in exchange for parcels scattered around the state. Resolution Copper plans a massive deep underground copper mine using a technique called block caving and the leader of the San Carlos Apache Tribe is asking the Senate not to vote on the annual National Defense Authorization Act until a provision that would allow the massive copper mining project on sacred land to be removed. We look at the land swap legislation, in this Lip News clip with Mark Sovel and Elliot Hill.

More Lego Coolness, Solves Rubik’s Cube in under 3 Seconds

More Lego Coolness – This Time Talking to A Cell Phone and Setting Records for Real World motion: Solving Rubik’s Cube

From Electronic Products

At LEGO World 2014 in Copenhagen, the third edition of the CubeStormer robot was unveiled, solving the Rubik’s Cube at a lightning pace.

The LEGO Mindstormes kit bricks are intelligent and programmable, powered by AA batteries. It runs a Linux operating system on an ARM-centered processor. The screen on the blocks is a monochrome LCD. There is an added SD card slot on all Mindstormes to expand the memory capacity and a USB port to add Wi-Fi connectivity.

Editor’s Note: What is basically a child’s toy manipulating a another child’s toy and solving a puzzle that most humans (adults) can’t solve at all. I had a really tough time deciding which category describes this story, Robotics, Distractions, or Sorry to Hear that, the latter category usually being reserved for stories of situations detrimental to society or the loss of a notable person. In this case, all apply, the notable person being the American worker.

As things tend to happen around here, my other half was editing pictures of a grandchild’s birthday party earlier today to post to Facebook. One of the children at the party, a particularly photogenic girl of almost 3, happens to have her own Facebook account and Brenda “tagged her” for the photos of her. Well, in the same photo album on Facebook is another photo that was taken in the early twenties and showing a women and three girls aged about 2, 4, and 6. It was posted by Brenda (my other half) to try to identify some of people in it, possibly relatives since the print was in her mothers photos. Facebook picked up on the youngest child in this nearly century old photo and wanted to tag the account of the current almost 3 year old. And, by golly, there is a bit of a resemblance, at least enough to make the Facebot image system notice it. Then, we realized there is at least an even chance the birthday party girl is related the “old” girl. All of which adds both a haunting feeling for how strong genetics can be and a haunted feeling that Facebook can make that kind of a connection. They aren’t perfect at recognizing faces, though, it also wanted to tag one of the teenagers as the fuel oil tank. So another category is being added, Serendipistickity, where somebody drew a good conclusion based on really bad science..

At the same time, a PBS documentary was running in the background about the The New York shirtwaist strike of 1909 also known as “The Uprising of the 20,000”. Workers, mostly Jewish women, led by Clara Lemlich and supported by the National Women’s Trade Union League of America (NWTUL), the strike began in November 1909. In February 1910, the NWTUL settled with the factory owners, gaining improved wages, working conditions, and hours. The end of the strike was followed only a year later by the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, which exposed the plight of immigrant women working in dangerous and difficult conditions. Hence, now that ecen toy robots can solve complex movement tasks at lightning speed, garment workers can begin their traing as robot maintenance personnel, and a few will even still work. Watch the video and tell me this thing can’t be taught to make shirts 24/7.
