On March 26 in Hong Kong, an electoral committee, stacked with Beijing loyalists, will select the city’s chief executive for the next five years. The race is widely seen as a competition between China’s preferred candidate, Carrie Lam, and the more popular John Tsang. And while most believe Lam will win, questions linger about how divided the electoral committee vote will be and what impact the results might have on calls for political reform. Joyce Huang has this report for VOA from Hong Kong.

By Martin Feldstein India and the United States have a positive economic relation that can be strengthened in the context of the policies of the new US administration. The Trump administration has made increasing economic growth its primary economic goal. Since the United States is the largest market for India's exports, the increasing strength of the US economy will have a direct positive impact on India's exports. After a long and slow recovery from the economic downturn that began a decade ago, the American economy is now at full employment. The unemployment rate is just 4.7% and real wages are rising at an increasing rate. Household wealth has increased because of the rise in the real value of homes and the even faster rise of the stock market. Consumers are therefore in a good position to increase their spending on imports as well as on domestic products.

However, what it symbolises and the lasting impact it will have is about more than the repeal of sections 1464 and 1473 in the criminal justice and public order act 1994. It sends an important message in this country when it comes to employment, what matters is your ability to do when it comes to employment, what.

Will robots steal our jobs? Its a question that keeps popping up , and the latest answer from PwC is that almost a third of existing jobs in the UK could be at risk of becoming the domain of robots or AI by the close of the next decade. PwCs report forecasts that 30% of jobs could be at potential risk of automation by the time 2030 rolls around, and that less well-educated workers are facing the highest risks of having their roles given to a robot. Specifically, the employment sectors most likely to be affected are transportation and storage, with 56% of jobs at risk of automation in this area, along with manufacturing (46%), plus retail and wholesale (44%). The good news is that all this new technology driving automation will generate fresh jobs in the digital arena maintenance and so forth and on a broader level, the tech will boost overall wealth and spending.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Senior Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino said the league will move toward hiring full-time officials in 2017. "The answer is yes, we are going to do it," Goodell told MMQB's Peter King of hiring full-time officials. "It's something we negotiated for with the officials association. We feel confident it is worth going forward and seeing what the impact is. We believe this can add more consistency. You still are going to have 17 referees who are not in here every week, but if they are in here over some period of time, they will get more consistency and they will be able to understand what everybody is doing." The league has kept referees as part-time employees, which has allowed them to have secondary jobs during the weekdays. Blandino said the league believes some referees may resign if the league treats them as full-time employees.
