[OP-ED]: Why robots won’t steal all our jobs

 07/14/2017 - 08:43
En un mundo ideal, los robots realizarían la mayoría de los trabajos repetitivos y monótonos, mientras que la fuerza de trabajo mejor educada y mejor paga se concentraría en trabajos que no pueden ser realizados por máquinas. Archivo

Don’t worry, the robots won’t destroy all our jobs. History suggests just the opposite -- that new technologies inspire new jobs. So concludes a study from leading labor economists. It’s a useful antidote to widespread fears that robots and “artificial intelligence” will displace millions of workers and lead to permanently high joblessness.

[OP-ED]: CNN used to cover scandals. Now it’s immersed in them

Cuando el mago de los programas-realidad, Mark Burnett, ofreció un programa en que Trump abusaba de los concursantes mientras buscaba un “Aprendiz”, Zucker literalmente saltó y cerró la puerta para que Burnett no pudiera salir antes de firmar el trato. Univision

Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.

That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.

The recent announcement that City Hall and Conrail cut a deal to cleanup the notorious heroin corridor along a section of railroad track running through Philadelphia’s Fairhill and West Kensington communities is welcomed removal of a dangerous blight that’s festered for nearly two decades.

[OP-ED]: On immigration, conservatives premiere a new office of political theater

 05/17/2017 - 09:26
The data confirms it. Studies show that illegal immigrants commit crimes at lower levels than the native-born. The FBI reports that cities with high numbers of illegal immigrants are among the safest in the country.

 When they criticize laws against hate crimes, conservatives claim we shouldn’t create special classes of victims. 

Well, forget all that. It turns out that they feel differently when they can get political mileage from exploiting the public’s fear of illegal immigrants. Then they’re all in.
