Reusable bread bags
Onya's vintage styled reusable Bread Bags are designed to carry your bread home in style without any packaging waste. They are also perfect to use as storage for the home baker. Simply bake, allow your loaf to cool, slice and store in your reusable bread bag. Due to the unique roll and clip closure, you can simply roll down the closure as the loaf is eaten to ensure maximum freshness is maintained by reducing air movement around the bread.? https://www.onyalife.com/product/reusable-bread-bag/?

Startup countries that are floating islands
A new company, Blue Frontiers, plans to build and operate floating islands in French Polynesia. The goal is to build about a dozen structures by 2020, including homes, hotels, offices and restaurants, at a cost of about $60 million. To fund the construction, the team is working on an initial coin offering. If all goes as planned, the structures will feature living roofs, use local wood, bamboo and coconut fiber, and recycled metal and plastic. Each will offer different ways of governance hoping that with more choices it will be more likely that there is peace, prosperity and innovation. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/13/business/dealbook/seasteading-floating-cities.html

No more vehicle permits
Singapore will stop issuing new vehicle permits starting February 2018. The government points to limited space available in the city-state as the reason for the halt in vehicle growth. They plan to reduce the vehicle growth rate from 0.25 percent per year to 0 percent for cars and motorcycles. Due to the limited space available, Singapore controls the number of vehicles on the road to a great degree. https://futurism.com/singapore-will-stop-adding-new-cars-to-its-roads-in-2018/

More rights for women led by a robot who?s now a citizen
Saudi Arabia recently granted citizenship to Sophia, a humanoid robot. It?s the first time a country has granted a robot the same basic status and privileges as humans. This clever idea could lead to more recognition of women?s rights in some countries. http://metro.co.uk/2017/10/27/robot-becomes-first-in-the-world-to-be-given-citizenship-7031214/

A salad for lunch from Sally the robot
You use a touch screen to place your order choosing from a menu of recipes or designing your own. The machine calculates the number of calories per salad and drops the veggies into a bowl in less than a minute. There is less human contact with the food as the salads are assembled out of precut vegetables stored in refrigerated canisters hence minimizing food safety concerns. Plans are being made for the robots to produce healthy meals in convenience stores, airports, hotels, hospitals and universities. www.chowbotics.com
