A public policy leader addresses how artificial intelligence is transforming the future of labor—and what we can do to protect the role of workers. As computer technology advances with dizzying speed, human workers face an ever-increasing threat of obsolescence. In Human Work In the Age of Smart Machines, Jamie Merisotis argues that we can—and must—rise to this challenge by preparing to work alongside smart machines doing that which only humans can: thinking critically, reasoning ethically, interacting interpersonally, and serving others with empathy. The president and CEO of Lumina Foundation, Merisotis offers a roadmap for the large-scale, radical changes we must make in order to find abundant and meaningful work for ourselves in the 21st century. His vision centers on developing our unique capabilities as humans through learning opportunities that deliver fair results and offer a broad range of credentials. By challenging long-held assumptions and expanding our concept of work, Merisotis argues that we can harness the population’s potential, encourage a deeper sense of community, and erase a centuries-long system of inequality.

It is unwise to steal from goblins... In order to save a dying silver kitten, a kind-hearted sprite makes a desperate decision. It is a choice that will change her life forever. Because all debts come due eventually, and a debt to the Goblin King is no small thing. Caught up in an age-old enmity, can Lumina find a way to make good what she owes and still keep all she holds dear? Will the price of her choice be more than she can pay? No matter the answer, some things are worth the cost, whatever it might be. At its heart, Lumina and the Goblin King is a fairytale - complete with goblins, fairies, elementals and the like - plus one opinionated silver cat. There is no obscene language or mature scenes; although there are some mild thematic elements.

Holographic dualities are at the forefront of contemporary physics research, peering into the fundamental nature of our universe and providing best attempt answers to humankind's bold questions about basic physical phenomena. Yet, the concepts, ideas and mathematical rigors associated with these dualities have long been reserved for the specific field researchers and experts. This book shatters this long held paradigm by bringing several aspects of holography research into the class room, starting at the college physics level and moving up from there.

After the first tractors appeared on the scene in the late 1890s, it took another two decades and plenty of modifications for farmers to embrace this once-crude technology in favor of the steam engine, further advancing the power-farming revolution. Written by an international expert in agricultural machinery, Farm Tractors takes readers back to the nineteenth century to look at the precursors to modern tractors and travels through the years to follow the machine’s evolution as tractors became indispensable equipment on farms across America. INSIDE FARM TRACTORS: •How steam-powered machinery gave way to tractors, and how tractors changed the way that farmers worked •Prominent early manufacturers and models, including Henry Ford’s legendary Model F, International Harvester’s Farmall, the Waterloo Boy, John Deere, and many more •The use of hydraulics, the advent of diesel engines, the availability of four-wheel drive, and other technical breakthroughs •The introduction of new fuel sources as alternatives to gasoline •Specialized tractors for orchard work, high-acreage operations, carrying loads, cultivating, and other scenarios •The tractor industry’s major expansion following World War II •Modern-day tractors and an outlook on the future of farm machinery
