It's called the Osborne Effect:
Some more background information that was posted by Stanford last April
IMO contains most the the details in TFA mentioned here.
One of the problems of this world is that half of all produce spoils before it's eaten. So in the cities of the future, why not have centralized, automated mega-kitchens which receive trucks of fresh raw ingredients and transform them into healthy, delicious and customized meals? Sure, they only make fast food now, but there is no reason why robots can't execute the instructions of Michelin-star chefs, and no reason why such excellent meals should cost more than fast food costs now. Together with some sort of automated delivery service, this is simply a much better way of feeding people than what we do now.
Just think of all the time we waste stocking shelves in stores, driving to them, parking, filling our carts... stocking our fridges, heating up an entire oven for the sake of a single meal, cooking, cleaning up, etc. etc. All that requires a great deal of total cognitive load for many humans, and much wasting of resources. The alternative is that a massive restaurant kitchen cooks up exactly the meal you want, with the freshest ingredients and flavoring details that you would simply not be able to accomplish in a home kitchen. Then the meal arrives through an automated delivery car network, which also picks up the dishes from the previous meal. The city could also have dining rooms with a direct pipeline to each of the city's various mega-kitchens, and these can host social or family groups who want to eat out.
A world like that is actually quite achievable with tech that's already in the prototype stage, and it's a much better world than the wasteful one we live in now.
Hi did not spend 15 years in prison
A felony offense that's punishable by a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
This explains why he was instead accepted into a pretrial diversion program. Should Pickren successfully complete the program, the felony charge will be dismissed
I would love not having them around, however be aware that mosquitos are a staple for bats.
Oh yeah? What bats? What percentage of their calorie intake consists mosquitoes? I know you didn't actually look this up before you posted, because then you never would have said what you said. Just because you don't know the research doesn't mean you get to just make up facts. Get used to the fact that lots of science happens without your awareness. Maybe you should pay attention to more of it.
For some reason these dupes do make me feel at home here. The world is changing rapidly, but Slashdot stays just the way it is, with 15-year old layout and editors that cant even read their own front page.

Wow, circular things didn't used to be like this.
