  • Obama thinks mandatory voting will change the role of money, in the electoral system.
  • Amazon’s delivery drones are now regulated for testing.
  • A pregnant woman is attacked, and has her baby removed from her stomach.
  • “Obama floated the idea of mandatory voting in the U.S. while speaking to a civic group in Cleveland on Wednesday. Asked about the influence of money in U.S. elections, Obama digressed into the topic of voting rights and said the U.S. should be making it easier for people to vote.

    Just ask Australia, where citizens have no choice but to vote, the president said.

    ‘If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country,’ Obama said, calling it ‘potentially transformative.’ Not only that, Obama said, but universal voting would ‘counteract money more than anything.'”

    “The drones must be flown at 400 feet or below during daylight hours, and must remain within sight of the pilot.

    Under US law, operating drones for commercial purposes is illegal.

    However, those rules are under revision by the FAA, which is expected to issue new rules regarding the operation of unmanned aircraft for commercial and recreational purposes.”
