Some experts argue that it is not just lower-paying jobs that will be stressed by AI and other agents of automation. At an MIT conference a few months back, one researcher, Mary “Missy” Cummings, director of the Humans and Autonomy Lab at Duke University, noted that some plum positions are also on the endangered species list. Take commercial pilots, for example. These pilots, she explained, “touch the stick for three to seven minutes per flight and that’s on a tough day.” The rest of the time that flight is literally on autopilot. It doesn’t take a genius to see which way that wind is blowing. - Barb Darrow, Fortune

“This time the transition is likely to be faster, as technologies diffuse more quickly than they did 200 years ago. Income inequality is already growing, because high-skill workers benefit disproportionately when technology complements their jobs. This poses two challenges for employers and policymakers: how to help existing workers acquire new skills; and how to prepare future generations for a workplace stuffed full of AI.” No one can really tell if technology will once more end up creating more jobs than it destroys, or if this time will be different and AI will end up replacing many jobs, including high skill ones, while creating few new ones. But regardless, we cannot ignore the machinery question. Even if AI doesn’t lead to mass unemployment, technological advances are already disrupting labor markets and contributing to social unrest. - Irving Wladawsky-Berger, Wall Street Journal?

    Are you capitalizing on affordable opportunities or are you missing the boats that other institutions are sailing to success? (e.g. connecting with businesses and communities of interest with non-credit or stackable credit certificates)

    About 5.8 million students were enrolled in at least one distance learning course in fall 2014 – up 3.9 percent? from the previous fall, according to Online Report Card: Tracking Online Education in the United States, an annual report by the Babson Survey Research Group. Last year, that figure rose by 3.7 percent, which marked the slowest rate in more than a decade.

    I’m going to give you a quick little treatment to try that my friend Alicia discovered on her own (and I’ve tried independently to find that it does often work, sometimes in under 24 hours), and then I’ll give you my own personal favorite method that I’ve found to be even more effective (though it can take a couple days, at most, to work) plus how to prevent almost all future cold sore outbreaks.  Here’s the remedy she came up with on how to get rid of a cold sore by the next morning, in her own words:

    “I woke up and my cold sore was already open, but this is what I did to have it gone by the next morning…I melted an entire ice cube on my sore, even tho it’s a little painful at first..Then dab the sore to dry it and put rubbing alcohol on immediately after with a Q-tip..I did this once every 30 min. to an hour, and by the next morning, you couldn’t see a thing!”
