NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

Sophia is a top selling artist, science lecturer and personality.  She creates NFT (non-fungible token) artwork and was recently featured in a Sotheby’s art auction.  The piece entitled, “Sophia Instantiation” sold for 700k.  The piece included a painted self portrait of Sophia and a 12 second mp4 showing how the art work evolved.  The artwork was a collaboration between artist, Andrea Bonaceto and Sophia. The intention of the collaboration was to “explore the possibility for humans and robots to collaborate not only on operational tasks but also on creative efforts.”   I’m sure we’re all wondering how robot Sophia spent her share of the moolah?  It seems these days that Sophia is worried less about money and more focused on her talents and helping the environment.     Sophia was created by Hong Kong based robotics tech company, Hanson Robotics.  Sophia is run using advanced AI (artificial intelligence) technology and allows humans to increase their knowledge through special sensors an
