Stuff We Need

News Flash….gun fire has broke out along the North/South Korean border….

North and South Korean troops exchanged fire along their tense border on Sunday, the South’s military said, the first such incident since the rivals took unprecedented steps to lower front-line animosities in late 2018.

Violent confrontations have occasionally occurred along the border, the world’s most heavily fortified. While Sunday’s incident is a reminder of persistent tensions, it didn’t cause any known casualties on either side and is unlikely to escalate, observers said.

Time for a Sunday look at the world of inventions…..but first the major news on the pandemic front…..

House Democrats seeking Anthony Fauci‘s testimony on the coronavirus crisis have been rebuffed by the White House, which is blocking the nation’s top infectious disease expert from appearing next week on Capitol Hill.

Democrats had invited Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House coronavirus task force, to appear Wednesday before an Appropriations subcommittee examining the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic, which has killed more than 64,000 people in the United States.

Evan Hollander, a spokesman for the panel, said Friday that Democrats “have been informed by an administration official that the White House has blocked Dr. Fauci from testifying.”

Now on to those inventions…..

There are a few inventions that are only available in Japan but I think that the world would be a better place if they were available to us all…..

The modern age we live in provides us with a lot of interesting innovations that improve our quality of life. Since ancient times, people have been inventing devices and tools that have revolutionized the world. Next, we are going to show you some interesting inventions from Japan.

Bath Pillow and Smartphone Holder

If you’re trying to find complete and utter relaxation when you’re taking a bath, Japan doesn’t disappoint. We’ve all heard of bath pillows or tables, but this new invention brings together two things that could seriously offer us a better bath experience.

But the best is the “smart bra”….you read that right….a smart bra…..

Just a few things that the US needs to come into the technology age….

  1. I could do with the eye dropper glasses for my glaucoma drops. I always make a mess. But the twisting train seat has a flaw. There is very little leg room for the passenger nearest the window!
    Best wishes, Pete.
