Sony unleashes the cuteness with new robot dog
Sony is banking on the “irresistible cuteness” of its new robot dog to win over consumers.
Aibo, the artificial-intelligence-powered hound, wags its tail, chases pink balls and can learn new tricks like giving its owner a high five.
Aibo is a rebooted version of a device Sony () first launched in the 1990s — and the Japanese company has made it appealingly un-robotic. Unlike past versions, it has “eyes” (two small screens capable of showing diverse and nuanced expressions), a rounded appearance and a mouth that tilts up in a smile….

US Intelligence Community Claims North Korea Transferred 3 Nuclear Warheads To Iran
So just how and when did Iran acquire three North Korea nuclear weapons in addition to a suspected ‘dirty bomb’ freebee for Hezbollah?
It is widely agreed that Pyongyang has dramatically deepened its partnership with Tehran’s ‘Axis of Resistance.’ This according to the 16 agency US Intelligence Community as well as some Asian powers. All are said to believe that the DRNK-IROI partnership seeks the ability to launch nuclear weapons into their perceived enemies. Another recent report has it that North Korea has been benefiting from technical assistance from Russia and Pakistan and sharing some of it with Iran while committing about 25 percent of North Korea’s entire gross domestic product to its nuclear weapons program and much of that to missiles….

This Has Been The Worst Year For California Wildfires In The History Of The State
We have never seen a year like this in the history of the state of California. Yes, there are large wildfires in California every year, but this is one for the record books. Well over half a million acres have already been burned, and we still have three weeks remaining in 2017. At this moment, the fires that have absolutely ravaged Ventura County for the past seven days are moving into Santa Barbara County, and at this point no end to the crisis is in sight.
It would be hard to overstate the devastation that has been caused by these fires in recent months. One climatologist even used the term “apocalyptic conditions” to describe what he has been witnessing. The following comes from the Los Angeles Daily News……

Russia may turn to cryptocurrencies in oil trade to challenge sanctions & the petrodollar
Russia, Iran and Venezuela have more than one thing in common. All three are major oil producing nations dependent on the dollar since the global crude market is traditionally dominated by contracts denominated in US currency.
Moscow, Tehran and Caracas are also facing US sanctions; penalties which are proving effective since the sanctioned countries are dependent on the US dollar to sell their crude.
A decentralized currency – allowing anonymous transactions along with blockchain technology support to facilitate oil contracts – may be the ideal tool to allow the oil producing trio to turn their back on the greenback.
“The advent of cryptocurrencies, therefore, represents a fresh catalyst for commodity-producing countries wishing to abandon the dollar as a means of payment for oil,” said Stephen Brennock, oil analyst at PVM Oil Associates, in a research note seen by CNBC….
