Restaurant Automation

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I’ve covered the subject of automation several times.  I see how automation continues to increase.  A phrase I’ve adapted is “if something can be automated it will be.”  I ran across an article in Bloomberg about how HaiDiLao [DG1] International, owner of Hot Pot Restaurants, is developing robots to replace chefs and wait staff.  You can read the full article here: https://bit.ly/2FbTHGF

Grocery Delivery to Every Door

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I read a recent article about a partnership between Kroger and Nuro, a driverless car company, to deliver groceries to customers’ doors. As consumers we demand more convenient delivery of our products. Amazon offers quick delivery for a large number of items that show up at your house almost as soon as you order them. Target now offers same day delivery for some products. Many stores offer advanced ordering with curbside pickup, aiding convenience. In the future we are promised that our groceries will be easily delivered to our house.

Addictions and the Fall of the Mighty

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

 

Every day the news gives us more salacious allegations of malfeasance by high profile individuals. We shake our heads, wonder why, and act judgmental as we call for their heads. Frequently the issue is one of addiction.

We pass an alcoholic on the street and wonder how somebody ends up in that circumstance. Addiction starts with one step. Perhaps a 14-year-old snuck a few drinks from their parent’s liquor cabinet or engaged in underage drinking with friends at some social event. They became addicted to alcohol before they realized what they had experimented with. They probably can’t tell you the day it happened. Addictions are sneaky and can destroy anyone.

The Christmas Coin

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

            The Bible provides a very clear account of the birth of our Lord in human form. Interesting physical evidence also supports the validity of this birth that changed the world.  However, few connect coins to this event.  Archaeology unearthed a coin minted in 6 AD with an imprint that that records an astronomical event very much like the one the Bible tells.

Branch Banking Shrinks

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Branch banking has undergone significant change over the past several years. Step-by-step, financial institutions have reduced or eliminated interpersonal interaction as part of a long-term plan to reduce banking costs and staff.

For example, now you can deposit checks using a smart phone. When I receive a check, it’s easier to snap a picture using my banking application. Almost immediately the money shows up in my account. This saves me time and effort, but it also saves the bank handling time and provides for automatic check processing.
