This week we learn about exciting new 'cutting edge' anti-drone technology and then we learn about the CIA’s venture capital arm. Then we learn about quantum advances in computer technology, we study the travails of political activists, we describe the farcical nature of our presidential campaigns, we advise Bernie Sanders, and for the grand finale we unveil the true dragon that is about to emerge.
