Mech “The Bot” Johnson, a 15-foot-tall and 8,800-pound human-controlled robot suit, is working with Sapphire Las Vegas’ security detail during the four-day Consumer Electronics Show that kicked off Thursday.
The robot will be stationed outside the strip club’s gates to keep those waiting in line thoroughly entertained, likely because it is too massive to fit through any door frames.
“He will be protecting us all from the Ai bots taking over the Las Vegas #CES convention so that you may party worry free all weekend long!” the club said in an Instagram post.
Weighing nearly 4.6-tons, The Bot is a “human-controlled giant, powered all-terrain robotic ‘mech’ suit” that was flown in from Vancouver for CES, Sapphire Las Vegas said.
The quantum computing revolution is almost upon us, with a vast array of sensors, communication systems, and spectacularly powerful computers all tantalizingly close to actualization.
Functional prototypes of quantum computers, like Google’s Sycamore machine, are already in operation across the globe. At the heart of such technologies are “quantum bits” or “qubits,” the fundamental units of quantum computation, similar to how bits are the foundational units of traditional computing.
Now, researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a new method of creating tiny light-emitting points called color centers; they arise in defects within crystals by taking a known material and giving it a twist. In turn, these controllable color centers could be used as a new way to generate qubits.
A former producer for ABC News was arrested Tuesday on federal charges of transporting child pornography.
James Gordon Meek, who lives in Arlington, Va., had several devices seized from his home by the FBI last April, the Department of Justice said in a statement. According to court documents, they contained images of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Authorities also found multiple chat conversations with users who expressed enthusiasm for sexually abusing children.
The Department of Justice said that, in two of those conversations, a username allegedly associated with Meek received and distributed child sexual abuse materials through an internet-based messaging platform.
President Joe Biden is planning to shoot down the Chinese spy balloon over the Atlantic so that it can be captured and studied, a senior source has revealed.
The White House decided against shooting the balloon down over home soil amid fears for American lives and sparking an international incident, a senior US official said.
The hosts of ‘The View’ say stupid things on TV every day. If you pay attention to media, you know this. The show is a constant source of misinformation.
Whoopi Goldberg is very angry with FOX News for noticing this and whined about it on the air on Friday.
Authorities arrested 368 people and rescued 131 victims involved in human trafficking in a weeklong statewide multi-agency task force, announced Feb. 1.
“We know that the sex trade is a prolific one that exists throughout this state and throughout our nation,” said Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Chief Michel Moore . “It’s an ugly scar against this great country that exists too oftentimes in plain sight.”
Operation Reclaim and Rebuild was conducted between Jan. 22 and Jan. 28 in nine counties, including Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino, Moore said at a news conference at the department’s Elysian Park Academy.
Numerous federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies were involved in the effort, including the LAPD, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The victims’ ages ranged from 13 to 52, including six children, and the average age was the mid-20s, Moore said.
Every day we continue to get even more evidence that our society is going completely and utterly insane.
The Big Apple felt more like the North Pole early Saturday morning, with major airports reporting record low temperatures, Central Park hovering in single digits and Bryant Park’s iconic water fountain looking more like a massive icicle.
John F. Kennedy Airport in Queens reached a frigid record low for the date of 4 degrees, breaking the old record for the same date there in 1996, Fox Weather Meteorologist Christopher Tate said Saturday. Newark Airport and LaGuardia Airport in Queens both logged lows of 5 degrees, also breaking previous lows recorded in 1996 of 7 degrees and 10 degrees, respectively.
In Central Park, the thermometer likewise dropped to 4 degrees at 7 a.m., nearing a record low for the same date of 0 degrees in 1918, according to Tate.
Following a rampage of a radical Jewish gang in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City on the evening of Jan. 26, the Assembly of the Catholic Ordinaries in the Holy Land called on political and religious authorities to bring civil and religious life in Jerusalem back to “greater serenity.
“This is only the latest in a series of episodes of religious violence that is affecting the symbols of the Christian community and beyond,” they said in their Jan. 27 statement. “We condemn such attacks and express our concern for the escalation of violence in the Holy City.”
The incident took place as Jerusalem spiraled into a weekend of violence when seven Israelis were killed on Jan. 27 at a synagogue after prayers and another shooting the next day left two Israelis injured just outside of the Old City in the Palestinian village of Silwan. This village is where Jewish settlers have established themselves and an archaeological site.
The shootings followed days of violence in the West Bank and Gaza, including the killing of nine Palestinians in an Israel raid on Jan. 25 in the Jenin refugee camp. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said the raid was needed to foil an imminent terrorist attack and all those killed were part of an Islamic Jihad Terror cell. However, Palestinians say civilians also were killed in the attack.
