Morrisons going into partnership with Amazon

The supermarket said it will supply products for the Amazon Prime Now and Amazon Pantry services.

Amazon Pantry was launched in the UK last year, escalating competition with the big four supermarkets, but did not offer fresh food.

Under the new deal, Morrisons will supply fresh, frozen and non-perishable goods to Amazon customers.

The expanded Amazon service will be available later this year.

Analysts at Shore Capital said there was “strategic merit” in Morrisons exploring a commercial tie-up with Amazon.

Ocado has a 25-year agreement with Morrisons to run the supermarket’s online delivery service.

The supermarket also said it will expand the geographical coverage of Morrisons.com by taking space in Ocado’s distribution centre in Erith, southeast London.

However, Morrisons said of the Erith deal: “This amended agreement is subject to detailed terms being agreed and will only proceed if it enables Morrisons to achieve profitable growth online. There can be no certainty that an agreement will be concluded.”

And now for something a little different

Opinions will be split over this, but just for the sheer gaul of this soldier I couldn’t resist posting about it. Its not something you see everyday. I dread to think of the trouble he will get into, if they find out exactly which soldier it was. He must of been so bored and fed up and had been watching Monty Python the night before.

Please please please be careful on the roads.

First off I would like to say I do not and have never been a motorcyclist so I cannot comment from a motorcyclists point of view but I am a car driver. In fact, I have, as I type this decided I will not give my point of view or opinion of this other than to say all drivers and riders, and I mean ALL, need to be more aware of whats happening around them and watch their speed whilst on the road. Also, I know theres a sort of thing between bike riders and car drivers where one always says the other is at fault or should pay more attention. Truth is we all need to. We are all vulnerable when we are on the roads driving whatever vehicle we are in or on.
While watching this video I actually paused it a few times to decide whether or not I wanted to proceed watching it. IT IS hard to watch but it hits home as a stark reminder of the dangers out there and how quick they can happen.
I am posting this so that all my fellow bloggers and readers will take heed and be careful whilst driving or riding.

This video can be distressing to see. Please don’t watch if you are easily upset
This is hard-hitting footage of a fatal collision in Norfolk has been released by police in a bid to get motorcyclists and drivers to think seriously about road safety. Viewers are warned that this video contains content which some may find distressing, but it does not show any graphic images of the rider during or after the collision and they are given the option to refrain from viewing.

My thoughts go out to the family and loved ones of David Holmes.

Just as I suspected.

I had suspected this was the case for a while now and it looks like I was right.

50 million selfies

Apparently The American Psychiatric Association (APA), has officially confirmed what many people thought all along: taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disorder.

The following is taken from http://adobochronicles.com

The APA made this classification during its annual board of directors meeting in Chicago. The disorder is called selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.

APA said there are three levels of the disorder:

Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media
Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each of the photos on social media
Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than six times a day
According to the APA, while there is currently no cure for the disorder, temporary treatment is available through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The other good news is that CBT is covered under Obamacare.

This is unwelcome news for Makati City in the Philippines, especially for its mayor, Junjun Binay, son of the incumbent vice president. Makati was recently named selfie capital of the world by Time Magazine. The mayor even organized a ticker tape parade after his city was bestowed the rare honor.
