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.”

Bad day here we come

Thanks to the pain meds I am taking ( Maxitram SR ) my sleeping pattern is screwed. I am having all sorts of very vivid dreams which is resulting in me being very restless. This morning the cats, or one in perrrticular decided to make as much noise as possible and meow to feed him and let him out. Being restless anyway, I jumped out of bed in a right old foul mood and let him out of the window. That was it, I was awake now. Way way earlier than I wanted to be. A good 2 and a half hours before my alarm was set to go off. Hopefully a nice coffee with calm me down.
Its going to be a bad day today. Back at work after a week off and in a bad mood already. Joy oh joy.

Trip to The International Centre For Life

Screen Shot 2016-02-19 at 17.48.41

Today was one of the days we had planned for while were all off for the week together. We went to Newcastles Centre For Life. Wikipedia states that The International Centre for Life is a science village in Newcastle upon Tyne where scientists, clinicians, educationalists and business people work to promote the advancement of the life sciences. The centre’s own website ( click here to go their website ) has this description. “Based in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, almost 600 people from 35 countries work here: researchers, doctors and nurses work alongside people in the fields of education, public engagement and business. What unites everyone is a passion for science.

At the heart of the science village is the Life Science Centre, which attracts around 250,000 visitors annually. Life’s public engagement programme attracts a broad audience for exhibitions and special events, and the education team deliver the biggest schools’ science workshop programme in any European museum or science centre.

On site partners include Newcastle University, who chose Life for the location of their Institute of Genetic Medicine; the NHS Newcastle Fertility Centre; the NHS Northern Genetics Service and several young and vibrant biotechnology companies.”

Today though we wanted to go to visit it’s latest exhibition,’Robots’. The new exhibition Robot features over 40 robot models, cyborgs and androids – full size models, heads and toys – from TV shows and films from the past 60 years. The first one we saw as we stood in the short queue enter was one of the gold Daleks from Dr.Who

Being from the generation that grew up watching Dr. Who every Saturday night and being scared of the Daleks I was chuffed to see this, but to me, whats better than seeing one of the new Daleks? Seeing one of the older ones from when I was a kid. The kind Tom Baker used to wrap his excessively long scarf around to overcome the cold hearted metal beasts. There was one such Dalek at the exhibition. They has even given it a name. ‘Bruce’. As I was nearly giddy with excitement like a little kid, I had to get a selfie with Bruce. It was funny as it was a fully moving Dalek. I went and stood beside it and asked him to look towards the camera. His head spun round and pointed straight at the lens. After the photo, his sucker came out to give me a high five. I can honestly say, I have never in my life say I have high fived a Dalek before.

Even Georgia got in on the act and had her photo taken with Bruce and got a high five at the end

The main Robot exhibition was a lot smaller than I was expecting in all fairness. Considering all the advertising and hype I had heard about it, I was expecting more to it. Saying that, it was still really good. There was robots from Lost in Space, Star Wars and Robocop, Heads from iRobot, and Bicentennial Man plus props etc from Star Trek and Mars Attacks

We went to a 20 min show called Hubble at 25. Which was about the 25 year history of the Hubble telescope. It featured some amazing photography which was nearly 3d in effect. It was one of those curved screens so it really captivated you. It was well worth the visit.

There was also a,little thing to mess about on and experiment with. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of people just walk by it and not even bother looking at it. Its like a table with a built in screen and lots of perspex blocks. When you moved the blocks around or position them in different ways you creat a connection to the other blocks and create synthesized sounds> It was great fun. I wish I could of had one of these at home to mess about with.

All in all, despite its being 26 pounds for the 3 of us to get in, we still had a great time and had a good laugh. Its good honest, educational fun for the whole family.
