percent it's very surreal being here it's such a sobering place but for like from the eyes or hands it's a beautiful place officials say radiation levels are now low enough that visiting is safe even

nuclear disaster is probably the worst in history the nuclear plant exploded back in 1986 hundreds of thousands were relocated by the Soviets the UN says 20,000 cases of thyroid cancer can be traced

fifty times for two minutes her husband says she fought to stay conscious as crew struggled to slow the basket he said no what was happening everything was spinning so fast the blood was going through

battling Amazon by preparing to offer groceries delivered right to your fridge here's ngati schwartz and here we are in the home grocery delivery wars promising a future of robots and drones and self-driving cars a big move by brick-and-mortar giant wal-mart that might have pushed the finish line past your curb past your front door and straight into your refrigerator the idea is you order online and if you're not home you can watch a live video stream a Walmart employee coming into your house opening up your fridge and stocking your shelves a counter punch – amazon same-day delivery network now experimenting with new drones and a delivery service that can leave packages inside your garage the trunk of your car or just past your front door but for Walmart it might all come down to capitalizing on their nearly 5,000 stores in big cities and small towns acting as delivery hubs from a cost perspective not all that different from delivering it direct to somebody's door because that we're able to actually batch the orders but skeptics say the biggest hurdle will be addressing privacy and security are they gonna be perfect every single time it only takes one incident to make this really a dangerous or spooky or weird experience Walmart says their employees will be trained extensively ready to roll out testing in three cities this fall starting their pilot program by offering it to nearly a million of their customers Goti Schwartz NBC News that should got you to clean your fridge up next the new movie-going experience for dogs ever humans finally tonight as the summer

  1. I am so sick of Pelosi! I wanna see her fired,charged with Treason along with Haglery,unlimited access to the the day of all court time,take pic’s,!!! Why have the Federal courts allowed them to get away with it!

  2. I guess this was good news night close calls and caution ;And *********************

    Wal Mart, Sam rules the world from his grave
    Space is for sale ; check out the ufo’s up close and personal for155 million

  3. I don't want to go on the Space Station, I want to go to the Moon!!! Well.. We haven't been to the Moon for 50 Years, We should be going to the Moon with ease now, shouldn't We, with the tremendous increase in Technology? ? Did We really make it to the Moon in 1969??? Really???

  4. Of course things are going to cost more with these sanctions, the Trump bunch is only looking out for those that have so much money that the prices of everyday items rising is no issue to them! I'm sure there are other reasons for those actions, but I'm sure none of them are to help the regular working People and Families of America, that should seem obvious!

  5. Russia! USA!! Hey everybody! Why don't We spread out a little bit on that Gigantic Ocean? Why do all the Vessels need to be scrunched up so close, there should be room for everybody to maneuver out there!!!!

  6. Between former officer Noore and former deputy Peterson being taken into custody, these are two examples of police accountability from two people that clearly should not have ever been issued a badge. 99.99% of the officers on the job are just good men and women that do a thankless job. Maybe now that these examples of police accountability have been held up, maybe we can get to a point where we stop saying that "all cops (insert your gripe here)…." and get back to a point where we respect the police as a whole and just hold only the bad apples like Noore and Peterson responsible for what they do? I agree 100% in holding the "bad apples" responsible. JUST the bad apples.

  7. No Walmart or employee from any grocery chain is ever going to enter my house alone to deliver my groceries. How so unnecessary is that? Why are people so willing to give up their safety rights and concerns?

  8. on one hand the black population is appeeling public focus on them and asking for equal, on the other hand, half of all murder are commited by black people which makes up only 12-13% of US population. Is this a contradiction?
