Lead: Kamikaze Drones and The Future of War

Your tax dollars are hard at work building kamikaze drones for the military. This is how it’s done now. 

The military gave its first public demonstration of the Switchblade 300, a small drone with carbon wings that can launch itself at its target and explode in a fireball. According to NBC News, “these unmanned aircraft don’t fire missiles – they are missiles.” And they are a lot cheaper than the Hellfire missiles the military has been using. Those cost $150,000 apiece. The kamikaze drones are a bargain at $6,000 apiece. 

The drones weigh about 5 pounds and can fly up to seven miles to hit a target. The smaller version has the capacity to kill people and the larger has the capacity to destroy an armored vehicle. It has a camera to make sure that the operator hits the correct target but the military says that best practice is to use it in conjunction with a surveillance drone. 

In The Blink Of An Eye

Meet the Sarco, a suicide pod that lets patients activate the machine by blinking. It recently passed a legal review in Switzerland. 

Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, but this method is new. Sarco is short for “sarcophagus.” The pod releases a gas that puts the occupant into a deep coma within two to five minutes and then lowers oxygen levels so the person dies through hypoxia “relatively” peacefully and painlessly. It is meant to be mobile so it can come to a patients’ home and double as a coffin after the procedure. 

Opponents say that it glorifies assisted suicide because it is so futuristic and cool-looking. So far, the Sarco is in prototype.

YouTube's Miserable Copyright System

A new report from YouTube shows that millions of videos are hit with bogus copyright claims. The company says that it overturns 60% of those claims when channel owners challenge them. 

The report showed that 729 million videos were hit with copyright claims this year between January and June. Of those, 2.2 million were later overturned. 

YouTube has been accused of blocking videos for political reasons and using draconian measures against creators. The platform says that it will publish this Copyright Transparency Report annually from here on out to make it clear how they flag videos. There does not seem to be any changes to the appeal process, however, which can cost creators time and money if their videos are erroneously flagged.

Not Bad If You're Rich

Here is a round-up of the indirect effects of the pandemic: 

new survey shows that Generation Z, young people aged 13 to 24 years old, report that the pandemic has made it hard for them to pursue their education and career. They are also the generation most likely to feel hindered in their friendships, romantic relationships and feel the most challenged to maintain good mental health. Other generations report these things too but not with such high incidence. 

Meanwhile in the U.K., hospitals have had to put off more than 13,000 operations in the last two months due to Covid surges. That is 13,000 people who might have needed transplants, bypasses, vital hip replacements are left without a plan. The number of people waiting for “non-urgent” care in England peaked last month at 5.83 million, a trend that undoubtedly extends beyond England.  

Meanwhile, it isn’t all bad if you’re super-rich. The World Inequality Report shows that billionaires collectively own 3.5% of global wealth, up from 2% in 2020. Alright for some!
