There are certain basic comforts we, as a species, have come to rely on, like anesthetics during surgery and Netflix. Now we can add watching footage of Cate Blanchett at drag shows whenever we're sad to the list. Blanchett stopped by the historic Stonewall Inn on Monday night to perform in a benefit drag show, and, because she is incapable of failure, her efforts were nothing short of a masterpiece. The show raised our spirits and a chunk of change for Newtown Action Alliance , which provides support to communities affected by gun violence.

As a member of the Microsoft HoloLens product and engineering team, I get to see some pretty cool things on a regular basis. Any day of the week, I have a front-row seat to see how our teams, customers, and partners are making a world where mixed reality changes the way we live, work, play, and learn. I’m consistently amazed by the creative ways HoloLens is being used to solve complex problems, improve business outcomes and results, and change the way we interact with technology. Today, I have the privilege of sharing with you one of the latest examples of HoloLens innovation that is happening, this time within the healthcare sector. The operating room as it exists today Stryker, a leading global medical technology company, has set out to improve the process for designing operating rooms for hospitals and surgery centers.

Davis told me before the season how he was trying to make himself into one , and head coach Alvin Gentry doesn't order anyone to fall into line. Cousins is 26; Davis is 23and it's clear who the big brother is, both having gone to college at Kentucky. Abundant risk exists that Cousins doesn't mature at all after this move, even though it provides an opportunity for him to reconsider how much he wants to win. The best veteran voice on the Pelicans is Quincy Pondexter's, but it's hard to have influence when you're rehabbing from knee surgery. (By the way, let's just not tell all the Sacramento fans who still hate the Lakers from those rivalry days that Hield, No. 24, is a total diehard, crazy-loving Kobe Bryant loyalist.)

I mean routine legal work, medical diagnostics and possibly surgery. Indeed, some of the hardest jobs to mechanize are jobs like gardening and plumbing. We will have to accept a big redistribution in the way the labor market is deployed. And in order to ensure we dont develop even more inequality, there has got to be a massive redistribution. The money earned by robots cant only go to a small eliteSilicon Valley people, for instance. In my opinion, it should rather be used for the funding of dignified, secure jobs. Preferably in the public sector ― young and old, teaching assistants, gardeners in public parks, custodians and things like that. There is unlimited demand for jobs of that kind. 'Some of the hardest jobs to mechanize are jobs like gardening and plumbing.' Lord Martin Reesrlach: But robots also potentially could take on the work of a nurse, for that matter.
