In this video Ray Kurzweil discusses his predictions about radical life extension, singularity, life expansion and the imminence of physical immortality. He invites participants to the second international Global Future 2045 congress (June 2013)http://www.GF2045.com.

Earth to drug dealers — Google is watching!
Three brazen heroin dealers were captured in Google Street View images working their favorite Brooklyn drug corner, where they peddled their product to hipsters and other dope fiends, law-enforcement sources said yesterday.
Multiple images captured along Jackson Street and Kingsland Avenue by the search engine’s ubiquitous camera car show the trio milling about in front of the Neighborhood Grocery — one of two East Williamsburg bodegas where they set up shop.

According to Google, “Our automated cars use video cameras, radar sensors and a laser range finder to “see” other traffic, as well as detailed maps (which we collect using manually driven vehicles) to navigate the road ahead. “
