Robots. You may have only seen them in the movies or on TV. It’s not as if you can just buy one from the mall and ask it to do your household chores for you, right? It only happens in the movie. While we are surrounded by technology, we still haven’t reached that level yet. That’s way up high in the niches of science and technology. What we have for now are smartphones and Amazon’s Alexa, perhaps? However, they don’t look like the AI we have in mind, a humanoid robot.
But considering that the experts are now refining the technology of quantum computing in their secret labs, we know for sure that the future lies with very advanced technology such as artificial intelligence. Imagine having a robot that talks and thinks for itself. Such a thought is both exciting and scary at the same time. Well, I won’t complain if I end up with Baymax – that is if he is even part of the option. But with the future dominated by AI, the least we can do is to prepare for it, right?
Sage is targeting 16-25 year olds, including school leavers and millennials, with a new initiative looking to teach skills in artificial intelligence (AI) and bots.
The Sage Foundation plans to set up what it is calling a ‘BotCamp’, a programme that will facilitate the training of over
Nothing had been constant in the economy for years. It fluctuates from time to time in response to various factors. The U.S. economy is doing much better now after the most recent recession and business is starting to pick up. As a result, the unemployment rate has reduced and the people have more spending power.
However, you can also see many shops closing down because fewer people frequents the mall anymore when they can do their shopping online. Such an irony, right? Employees will still lose their jobs and crime rates may again increase – as if law and order are not already a major headache right now.
So, we can’t say yet that the economy is in great shape again. Moreover, the controversial policies of President Trump are sure to affect the U.S. economy in a major way.
The budget, the Liberal government’s second since the 2015 election, will land as Ottawa and corporate Canada scramble to assess the risks of possible and unpredictable policy actions from the country’s top trading partner.
There are fears of negative economic fallout for Canada from the decisions of the Trump administration and it’s unclear whether Morneau’s budget will account for the unknowns.
Trump calling cards like a border tax, protectionist policies, corporate and personal tax cuts and a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement all pose an economic danger north of the border.
We do not always understand one another because the world is such a diverse place. We live in different geographical locations and speak different languages too. But if there is one language spoken by all regardless of race, culture, education, and status in life, it is obviously the arts. None of these factors matter in your appreciation for the arts.
We were all born with artistic sensibilities. The art gives us a sense of calm and balance – away from the chaos of modern living and the fast pace of modern life. But not everyone knows how to appreciate its value. Since not technically considered a human necessity, the art sector will cease to enjoy big funding from the U.S. government.
New York City sees itself as the cultural capital of the nation — if not the world — but its artistic community is suddenly vulnerable to budget cuts in Washington, where the administration of President Trump is considering eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts, which provides millions of dollars each year to groups in the city.
The future is not so bright for those in the arts and everyone else who will be affected by the budget cut. We feel for struggling artists who wants to make a name in this world and give back to the world through the art pieces they make.

We take for granted many of the things around us. Try to look back a century ago and compare the quality of our lives. You buy water now. You even buy air through the air conditioning units you install at home. Many of the things that were free before are now for sale. What does that mean?
It can mean two ways – either that entrepreneurs found a way to make a sale and enjoy bigger profits or that our environment is deteriorating. Well, the reason is likely both. You need a good product or service to make a name and a living in this world. And if you can make people buy something that used to be for free, then you hit the jackpot.
But if you also survey your surroundings, you’ll see that it is far from pristine and we contributed to its deterioration. Can you safely drink water from streams and rivers today? Probably not. It is no longer safe for human consumption that even fishes can be rarely seen or fished. But it is not yet too late to save the environment if we all unite and act now.
Five dozen demonstrators marched through the streets of downtown Oakland on Tuesday afternoon at a “Resist Trump” rally focused on protecting the environment.
Marchers, carrying banners that said “One Planet, One People, No Pipeline,” started at 12th and Broadway and
We can’t deny that major changes are taking place in the country today. With the change in the political climate, we can expect that more changes are still coming our way in the months and years to come. It has been evident ever since the new president took oath and assumed the presidency.
The passage of new bills concerning health care is just as controversial as Trump’s immigration and trade policies. Obamacare has been in place for the last two terms. Various medical personnel all over the country are not thrilled with the current administration’s efforts at repealing it and eventually getting it replaced. Bloomberg.com got it covered:
The Republican plan to replace Obamacare has a health problem.
On Wednesday, the U.S.’s biggest advocacy group for doctors came out against House Republicans’ legislation, while the insurance lobby expressed concerns with the bill, adding to growing opposition from the country’s top trade groups for physicians and hospitals who worry that it will leave more people uninsured or with limited coverage.
In a letter to Congress, the American Medical Association said it “cannot support the AHCA as it is currently written,” referring to the American Health Care Act, as the Republican proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is named. The association calls itself the largest physician advocacy group in the country, and backed the nomination of Tom Price as President Donald

So, take the time to travel especially in your youth when you still have the energy to walk miles after miles of unknown roads and not easily feel exhausted.

We all just want to sleep after a long day at work or at school. You can’t wait but to hit the sack and get some well-deserved snooze and recharge for the next day. But getting a good night’s sleep is not always possible with the many distractions in our life right now – and I’m not just referring to surfing the internet until the wee hours of the morning.
A lot of people snore. And it can deprive you of a much-needed sleep as it does to your spouse. But if snoring does not just prevent you from sleeping but also leaves you feeling exhausted in the morning, then it is not just a simple case of snoring but a more serious condition known as sleep apnea.
Medical professionals reveal that snoring indicates more serious health issues.
Annoying and more often than not, disruptive, snoring is the most common problem affecting more than 90 million Americans of both genders and all ages.
The National Sleep Foundation says 37 million Americans snore on a regular basis.
More than an annoyance, snoring is body’s way of telling you something is wrong, according to doctors. It has many causes and the trick is to find out why you snore, which is difficult.
Patients diagnosed with sleep apnea snores.
Sleep Apnea happens when the person actually stops breathing briefly during sleep. It’s a condition doctors said

Fad words and phrases sweep through newsrooms with the regularity of the tides. We man, not “journal,” but we are quick to embrace phrases such as “no-brainer,” which spread with a rapidity that seemed to be proof of its content.
It happened sometime in 1994, when the word “simple” simply disappeared from the newsroom. Everything self-evident became a “no-brainer.” In the process, we lost not only “simple” and self-evident,” but also obvious,” “logical “clear,” “apparent,” “evident” and “straightforward
Not that no-brainer” didn’t originally have some value as a fresh figure of speech. The wretch who coined it created a term with obvious appeal.
The 500th was merely a hack, however, someone who callously dismissed George Orwell’s first rule of writing: “Never use a metaphor, simile or other figure of speech that you are used to seeing in print.”
Which is not to say that we should resist any change in the language. As even the flintiest of word purists concede, the beauty of English is its infinite capacity to embrace a growing and changing culture.
Computer technology has enriched English with dozens of new terms. Hardly anybody now blanches at “access” as a verb. And the idea of surfing the Net” has a sense of freewheeling panache that would be hard to duplicate. Other technologies contribute their own rich neologisms. “Boort box.” “Jet ski.””Frisbee.’ “Hovercraft.”
