7 Quick Takes Friday (set #177)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: Planned Parenthood’s summer baby organ sale continues (for special customers only). Their explanations are confusing, so here is a translation table. Britt Hume (and others) see this for what it is. 4 Marines were sacrificed to political correctness. Some more wonderful technology for the disabled. A vortex created by a dam intake, seen up close. Robotic brick laying machines.

A second national Planned Parenthood executive has been recorded selling baby organs. Here, Dr. Mary Gatter haggles over prices because she wants a Lamborghini. To that end, they use “less crunchy” techniques (when killing the baby to be harvested).

4 Marines were sacrificed to political correctness as we continue to ignore the threat posed by radical Islam. They did not die on some far away battlefield, but right here at home. Instead of addressing the root cause, the administration will in effect blame them — they wore the uniform. We are so messed up. This young (22 years old) reporter gets it:

Here is another good project to help the physically disabled. This electric powered wheelchair balances on two wheels while driving on even ground. To climb and descend stairs or overcome bigger obstacles, a set of tracks can be lowered dynamically keeping the user level.

Drones can go to places that are far, far to dangerous to otherwise get near. In this case, the intake of a dam near the Texas/Oklahoma border was opened creating a swift vortex. You wouldn’t want to get near this…

Lately I have noticed the emergence of robotic bricklaying machines from several companies. These machines work alongside people to make the process much faster and uniform. Interesting…

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was begun by Jennifer Fulwiler and is now continued by Kelly Mantoan. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Kelly for hosting this project!
