In Trinidad and Tobago, soca artiste, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez who often travels to the US, like many other Caribbean entertainers, showed her disdain for the situation, saying:

“Sad is the day, sad is the hour, sad is the second when a death brings a million arguments and a million opinions… But at the end of the day… sad be the day.”

In essence, her words expressed the fact that regardless of how the situation is looked at, lives have been lost. Her sentiment echoed the consistent reaction by black America that #blacklivesmatter.

The future of the world lies in technology. In this Buzz bit, we’re focusing on new technology. In Shanghai, China, KFC has deployed autonomous 5G trucks. Yes! 5G food trucks! Can you believe that?

With the COVID19 pandemic still a cause for major global concern, fast food chain KFC has deployed these 5G autonomous vehicles, which allow customers to purchase their food without human interaction. Pretty cool huh? Not only is it cool, it’s pretty forward- thinking.

Now, these 5G autonomous vehicles are unmanned. No one’s there to oversee what’s happening.

One of the vehicles, spotted in front of a Metro station outside the city of Shanghai was met by someone placing an order on the screen, the order being accepted via QR code payment, and after the order is made and the payment received, a door opens and the meal is collected. How crazy is that?

Do you think such a technological move could be the new standard worldwide in a few years?

Are we moving towards autonomous consumerism? Sure looks like it!
