Amazon’s Delivery Technology

Amazon’s Delivery Technology

In April 2019, a video of an Amazon blimp went viral on social media with millions of users watching what they thought was Amazon’s newest method of delivery. In the video, blimps lowered drones and delivered packages to homes.

The video was not real, but what is real, it’s Amazon’s plan to deploy drones and possibly blimps in the future as they patented the idea back in December 2014. Tests have been going on for utilizing these drones for deliveries, but there are privacy issues and software development issues that have halted the efforts. 

Amazon is pushing for drone deliveries and expects to implement this system within the next five years. Blimps and drones are supposed to be capable of delivering packages not heavier than five pounds and deliveries should happen within 30 minutes of flight time from their deployment base.

Publisher's Note

There is an idea that most Latino immigrants who come here lack education, and thus are bound to perform jobs that require more physical abilities than intellectual ones.

The laborers usually receive a negative stigma, even though the United States society requires these types of jobs to function properly. It is important to us to remember there is dignity in any job. 

In our Líders section, we feature Mari Alejos-Puente, an entrepreneur who is succeeding in the cosmetics’ industry. She graduated from Tulane University and Xavier University and she told me how her mother and her grandmother  were part of the cleaning crews at these institutions, respectively, and how proud they were to see her obtain her undergrad and master degrees.

It is a beautiful thing when you know ladies like this mother and grandmother work hard to give a better life to their children. I wanted to mention this as a side note, because it is important to highlight their efforts, just as much as the effort of the highly skilled professionals we are featuring in our cover story.

In our cover we feature three Latin American physicians who are giving individuals a second chance in life with through their commitment and work at the Ochsner Transplant Institute.

Let his note be a reminder that Latinos, in every field, are providing their skills, talent, and sacrifices every day to make the United States a culturally and economically stronger society.
