The man, who had a red and black shirt covering his face, did manage to escape with cash; no one was hurt. It is unclear how officers know the gun was a phony, but there is now an investigation into an incident where a man is said to have entered a business on Leeward Highway carrying a long barreled gun, believed to be an imitation firearm. The man did not steal anything and eventually just left the place in a blue car.The financial crimes unit is trying to determine who stole money from a personal bank account. The complaint was made at the Chalk Sound police station on Monday. It is believed the bank account was hacked.Three men and a woman were also arrested by Police. The woman, a 24 year old of Blue Hills is charged with wounding; a 45 year old man of the Bight is arrested for burglary; a 22 year old of Lower Bight is arrested for causing fear while using dangerous weapons and the 56 year old arrested, according to Police, breached his bail conditions.Remember, Police need your help in solving the armed robbery and imitation firearm cases, so please call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-8477 if you know anything.Police also remind, that in light of the car theft and burglary spree in Provo, that you have a copy of your license plate andknow your vehicle’s VIN.

Amazons Warehouse Robots Wont Replace Humans for at Least a Decade

first_img Are you worried your job is going to be taken by a robot? You needn’t be if you work for Amazon, which has dismissed the idea of fully-automated warehouses becoming a reality any time soon. According to Amazon’s director of robotics fulfilment, Scott Anderson, such technology in its current form is “very limited.”In a tour of Amazon’s Balitmore warehouse for reporters on Tuesday, Anderson said that while the company is exploring a variety of automation technologies, there’s a misperception that the company will be replacing human workers with robots in the near future. However, it is on the agenda, with Anderson giving a timeline of “at least 10 years” before warehouses become fully automated — a measured approach at odds with the likes of Tesla, which recently scaled back its automation citing “overconfidence” in the technology, and noting that production benefits from having more humans at hand.At present, the Amazon warehouses that use robots are mostly concerned with general merchandise such as homewares and bikes, but their functions are limited. Robots are unable to pick items from bins without damaging other items, or pick multiple items, in a way that makes them any more efficient than human workers.Plus, there’s no scope yet for robot workers in Amazon’s food division. As global director of environment, health and safety Derek Jones explained, “Just imagine if you want bananas, I want my bananas to be firm, others like their bananas to be ripe. How do you get a robot to choose that?”However, Amazon has repeatedly come under fire for poor working conditions and demanding targets. Last month the company announced plans to deliver Prime packages in one day instead of two, and currently stipulates a target of four hours between an order being placed and it leaving the warehouse. Once the technology exists to effectively automate these processes, there’s no doubt that Amazon will be using it.
