Food Deliveries by Drone
New technology is under way that will allow drones to make deliveries. Virginia Tech students have been given the opportunity to partner with Google and Chipotle Mexican Grill to launch this new concept. If all goes well with the test, it may set the stage for other packages to be delivered by drone in the future.
Shooting at Large House Party
Three people were shot at a massive party that was spread through Instagram and grew up to 200 to 300 people. The event occurred at a house under construction in an upscale Chesterfield County neighborhood, which seems to have been randomly selected. The police are hoping witnesses from the party will come forward so they can gain more knowledge on the investigation.
VSU Funded for Food Research
Virginia State University is prepared to receive almost $1 million in federal funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to construct a new laboratory building dedicated to research on food. The building will also provide student work areas, faculty and staff offices, and rooms with distance communication capabilities. Specifically, the labs will be used to research critical food issues and focus on developing new technology that will improve processing and packaging.
