BBC News Drone waiters unveiled in Singapore

Food is a national obsession in Singapore, but the country is facing a desperate shortage of waiting staff to get the food from the kitchen to the diner.

One company thinks it has found the solution in the form of flying drones to automatically deliver your dinner.

Infinium’s robots whizz above the heads of diners on paths charted by a computer program, and navigate using infra-red sensors placed around the restaurant.

But are Singaporean foodies ready to be served their dinner without the human touch?

A 34-year-old woman in Singapore was bitten by a six-foot python that emerged from the toilet bowl in her home while she was using it and sank its teeth into her leg.

Noraslinda Asat was using the bathroom in her Eunosville home when she felt a sharp pain. She stood up and found the jaws of a six-foot python clamped on the back of her right thigh.

After several attempts at grabbing the snake, she managed to pull it off.

Asat was taken to a hospital where she received an injection and was discharged, ‘The New Paper’ reported.

The incident happened earlier this month and the snake has not been caught.

The woman is so traumatised that she has refused to use the toilet at home, preferring to go to public ones instead.

Casey stopped eating at the start of the year and his health and condition deteriorated to such an extent that he had to be euthanised. “We are very saddened by the passing of Casey the Leopard seal,” Taronga Zoo in Sydney said. Leopard seals’ natural habitat is the frigid waters of the Antarctic, but a wounded Casey found himself on shores south of Sydney in 2007. Nursed back to health, he found a home at Taronga Zoo and became one of its most popular residents. He was not released back to the Antarctic in case he transferred any diseases to the fragile wild population. “Leopard seals are not found in zoos anywhere else in the world, so working with and learning from Casey was a unique opportunity for our marine mammal team,” the zoo said. “Casey also assisted with research by the Australian Marine Mammals Research Centre to study Leopard seals, helping the species into the future.” Leopard seals, the second-biggest seal species in the Antarctic, can live up to 15 years. They are formidable hunters, feeding on other seals, penguins, fish and krill. Tags: World’s only captive leopard seal put down. Casey, the world’s only captive leopard seal, put down in Australia.
