Google Parent Company Wing Gets First Approval For Drone Deliveries In US

Drone deliveries have been controversial since its inception. Since years, the use of drones have been a topic of controversy and has been question over privacy and security issues. Soon millions of drones could be seen buzzing in the air while delivering groceries that you need to make today’s dinner, medicine that you just forgot to pick up from the pharmacy or even a hot cup of coffee. Some might visualize this as an efficient future while others might see this as the beginning of privacy invasion.


No matter how it is accepted, such a scenario is surely close to reality. The Federal Aviation Administration on April 23, 2019 said that the drone delivery unit of Google’s parent company, Alphabet has got the agency’s first approval to use drones to carry and deliver packages commercially. The wing was earlier testing its drones in a suburb of Canberra Australia, where the machines managed to make more than 3,000 deliveries in part to demonstrate the drones’ safety and get the approval of the F.A.A.

However, there will be restrictions on the American front as the drone deliveries will be limited to the parts of southwest Virginia where the Wing is already part of an F.A.A pilot program while looking at how to integrate drones with the society. The exact locations of drone operation is yet to be determined. F.A.A spokesperson Greg Martin clarified that the drones can be operated only in the day when the weather is clear enough that they can be seen. They cannot fly above 400 feet as the planes and helicopters typically fly above 500 feet. One drone pilot can remotely operate up to five machines, but it is still not clear if there is a cap on the total number of drones allowed in the sky at one time.

Despite restrictions, the usage of drones has been backed by the F.A.A approval and is particularly game changing at times when the drone delivery initiatives were slowed down due to public aversion.

Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Mase - Harlem World Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the debut album from Mase, an icon of the shiny suit era who turned the Bad Boy throne into a recliner.
Mase floats skyward wearing golden goggles and a shiny suit that looks like a tricked-out air traffic control vest. His rise through an ultramodern wind tunnel feels remarkably symbolic as Kelly Price lip-syncs Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” on a monitor behind him. He’s wearing the same diamond-studded Jesus piece the Notorious B.I.G. had on when he was murdered. As he swaggers through the futuristic Hype Williams-directed music video for 1997’s “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” histories are being rewritten in real-time; the nature of rap as an epic retail commodity is growing. It is a eulogy and a coronation all at once. It is Bad Boy rising from the ashes.
