Chinese Factory Replaces 90% Of Human Workers With Robots, Sees 250% Production Increase

>One of China’s first unmanned factories in the city of Dongguan recently replaced 590 of its workers with robots and the results were astounding. While the factory used to be run by 650 employees, only 60 of those people still work at the factory and their primary job is to make sure the machines are running properly, not working on manufacturing.

>The Changying Precision Technology Company focuses on the production of mobile phones and uses automated production lines. The robotic arms produce certain parts of the mobile phones at each station and the factory even makes use of autonomous transport trucks.

>Though 60 is a shocking amount of people to be running and monitoring a whole factory, the trial for the robots is going so well that the general manager, Luo Weiqiang, said that the number of human employees may even drop to 20 someday.

>Since the shift to robots, pieces per person per month has risen from 8,000 to 21,000—a whopping 250% increase. While some may argue that quality of the product will decrease with the use of robots, this doesn’t appear to be the case either. The number of product defects has decreased from 25% to just 5%.

Study provides new evidence that exercise is not key to weight control

No.107282 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
An international study led by Loyola University Chicago is providing compelling new evidence that exercise is not the key to controlling weight.

Researchers who studied young adults of African descent from the United States and four other countries found that neither physical activity nor sedentary time were associated with weight gain. The study is published in the journal PeerJ.
"Our study results indicate that physical activity will not protect you from gaining weight," said lead author Lara R. Dugas, PhD, MPH. Dugas is an assistant professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.

Physical activity has many proven health benefits, ranging from reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer to improving mental health and mood. People who are physically active tend to be healthier and live longer. But while physical activity burns calories, it also increases appetite, and people may compensate by eating more or by being less active the rest of the day.

Some experts have suggested that a decline in physical activity, especially in the workplace, has been a key contributor to the obesity epidemic. But research such as the new Loyola study, in which physical activity is objectively measured and participants are followed over time, has not found a meaningful relationship between weight gain and physical activity.
The Loyola study is one of the primary outcomes of the Modeling the Epidemiologic Transition Study (METS). Researchers followed 1,944 adults aged 25 to 40 living in five countries: the United States, Ghana, South Africa, Jamaica and Seychelles (an island country east of Africa). The American participants live in Maywood, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. Participants are predominantly of African descent and represent a broad range of social and economic strata.

More climate change Reality

>> Humans causing climate to change 170 times faster than natural forces

>> Failure to reduce anthropological climate change could “trigger societal collapse”, their research concluded.

It IS, and has long been, negatively affecting economy and society. Catastrophic weather events are destroying infrastructure, and there's only so much money to rebuild again and again (Haiti, Syria...). Soon first world countries won't have any money or food to share with impoverished nations. And this support, too, has been drying up for years if not decades.
