Why Automation Will Create, Not Destroy, Jobs

If you have been watching political tectonics on both sides of the Atlantic, you may have noticed that analysts are increasingly getting it wrong: “it” being economics, politics, and social trends. The all of it, wrong. Why is this? Not in Kansas Anymore We are now deep into a digital transformation, and a new way of thinking and working and living.

Supreme Court To Review Facebook Ban For North Carolina Sex Offenders

Sex offenders in North Carolina not only have to register with their local communities  once they’ve served their time ― they also have to stay off Facebook and other social media sites for 30 years. But the Supreme Court is expected to hear arguments Monday on whether that law violates the constitutional right to free speech. The case concerns Lester Packingham, now 36, who was convicted of a felony in 2010 for having a Facebook account. In 2002, when Packingham was 21, he pled guilty to taking indecent liberties with a 13-year-old girl. He said he was dating the girl and claimed he wasn’t aware of her age , NPR reports. He was given a suspended sentence and two years’ probation

Google Doodle Celebrates Planetary Discovery In The Most Adorable Way

View post on imgur.com Google is celebrating this week’s planetary discovery with a home page doodle that’s out of this world. In an adorable cartoon, Earth is seen peering out into space with a telescope as the moon ― a.k.a. “Earth’s little buddy,” as Canadian  astronaut Chris Hadfield described it ― watches from behind. That’s when Earth comes across one lone exoplanet smiling back at it, leading to an ambush of six other cosmic characters. One even waves back.  The colorful doodle, which was crafted by Nate Swinehart , graced the home page one day after NASA announced the discovery of seven exoplanets some 40 light-years away, part of what scientists have named the TRAPPIST-1 system ― after the TRAPPIST telescope that found them.

Trump, Twitter And The So-Called Truth In An Age Of Lies

Let’s give it up for truth. C’mon, a nice hand. It gave us a lot of good years. Back in the day, Truth began with a capital T, and it came straight from God. Then science had a long run with it. The Enlightenment

Video Of Giraffe About To Give Birth Removed For ‘Nudity And Sexual Content’

A popular YouTube live stream is back on air after it was accused of broadcasting “nudity and sexual content” because it showed a giraffe about to give birth. The owner of Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, blamed the debacle on “animal rights activists” he said falsely reported the video because they were unhappy with the animal’s captivity. “The criticism is ironic because our animal collection is made up of rescues, surrenders, and some planned acquisitions,” owner Jordan Patch told The Huffington Post by email Thursday.  The zoo addressed the video’s removal in a Facebook Live video where Patch bit back at its critics, calling the giraffe’s filmed labor an educational tool. Silencing it discourages animal conservation, he said. “This is a perfect example of why we can’t have nice things,” Patch said in the video as April’s head poked around above his.  “To be a wildlife warrior, it’s not to fight the organizations that are working to help these animals, it’s actually to conserve their natural environments,” he said. “I encourage the animal rights activists to get behind conservation

Teen Engineers Build Robot Arm To Rescue Puppy Trapped In Well

A puppy in Istanbul escaped death this month thanks to the innovative work of a crew of teen robotics enthusiasts. The 4-month-old canine, identified by Reuters as a type of livestock guard dog called a Kangal, was stuck down a 230-foot well in a forested area for about 10 days. Local firefighters and miners worked to free the pup, but they couldn’t have pulled off the rescue without the help of the robotics team at Istanbul’s Bahcesehir High School For Science & Technology. When the students learned about the little dog’s plight, they constructed a robotic arm to assist in lifting the puppy out of the well. “The workers would not have been able to rescue the dog without the help of the robotic arm,” members of the team told HuffPost through a publicist working for the international group FIRST, which promotes science and technology education. “Their efforts were inhibited by the depth of the well
