Michael A. Lombardi, a metrologist in the Time and Frequency Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colo., takes the case. In today's world, the most widely used numeral system is decimal (base 10), a system that probably originated because it made it easy for humans to count using their fingers. The civilizations that first divided the day into smaller parts, however, used different numeral systems, specifically duodecimal (base 12) and sexagesimal (base 60). Thanks to documented evidence of the Egyptians' use of sundials, most historians credit them with being the first civilization to divide the day into smaller parts. Without artificial light, humans of this time period regarded sunlit and dark periods as two opposing realms rather than as part of the same day. Once both the light and dark hours were divided into 12 parts, the concept of a 24-hour day was in place. References Time's Pendulum. Why is a minute divided into 60 seconds, an hour into 60 minutes, yet there are only 24 hours in a day?

Sound familiar? While that laundry list of impending doom could be aimed at our era, it's actually a description of the world 3,000 years ago. 1177 B.C. is, for Cline, a milepost. The question that haunts Eric Cline is why. "The world of the Late Bronze Age and ours today have more similarities than one might expect, particularly in terms of relationships, both at the personal level and at the state level. What followed were drought, scarcity and desperation.

Problems like climate change, pandemics, migration, human trafficking, terrorism and economic chaos are multiplying because of globalisation. Technology like the internet and aeroplanes connect everyone and everything, so all the good stuff spreads, but so does the bad stuff: one person with a cold can cause a pandemic one geek with a laptop can shut down the power grid one bad bank can bring the global financial system to its knees. These problems are too big and connected for any one country to fix them. But, most of the time, we don’t. Because the seven billion people who created all these problems are organised in two hundred tribes called nations. Can this ever change? That foreigners aren’t aliens, they’re humans just like us, and we care about them. That countries aren’t islands, unconnected to the rest of the world: they’re all part of one system. There won’t be winners and losers, only losers. The Good Country isn't an organisation, an NGO, a charity or a company. What's the Good Country? - The Good Country

Building Momentum for Change | Green Agenda Building Momentum for Change | Green Agenda Does strategic community organising create and lead sweeping social change? Or does social change momentum arrive from disruptive actions and sweep individuals and organisations along with it? This is the question tackled by US labour, civil rights and immigration rights activist brothers Paul and Mark Engler in This is an Uprising; the answer, of course, is ‘both’. This is an Uprising is an analysis of social change, how it has occurred, and how contemporary campaigners may make it occur again. It is being widely read and discussed among Australian climate activists. One of the Englers’ key focuses is the putative tension between organising and mobilising. “The future of social change in this country may well involve integrating these approaches— figuring out how the strengths of both structure and mass protest can be used in tandem— so that outbreaks of widespread revolt complement long-term organizing.” This is an Uprising does justice to this sentiment.
Understanding the anti-elite Trump vote | Green Agenda The aftermath of the stunning victory of Donald Trump to the White House has left many asking the same question: how on Earth did he do it? While the analysis is still fresh, and formulating, one can highlight three theories as to why Trump will be the next President of the United States. The first, and probably most common among liberals, is that Trump’s victory was due to him effectively stoking racial fears. This theory is based on the idea of a “whitelash”, the idea “that Mr. Trump won in large part because he managed to transform economic disadvantage into racial rage.” Donald Trump speaking with supporters at a campaign rally at the South Point Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The second explanation is that Trump won due to economic insecurity, particularly among lower-income voters in the traditional rust-belt states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, where Trump pulled off three upsets to take the election (the same states where Democrats are now calling for a recount).

Some fear that robots and AI will steal our jobs. They probably will (in the near-term, at least half of them). If that happens, what will we do for a living? How will we earn money? In this post I’ll be discussing one of the most important proposed solutions to job loss due to automation—the notion of “universal basic income” (sometimes called guaranteed minimum income). Specifically, I want to discuss: 1. Let’s dive in. Predictions on Job Loss In 2013, Dr. The figure was recently verified by McKinsey & Company, who suggests 45 percent of jobs today will be automated with exponential technologies, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics and 3D printing. The concept is called technological unemployment, and most careers, from factory workers and farmers to doctors and lawyers, are likely to be impacted. The expected implications of technological unemployment vary widely. Other experts project that technological unemployment will be massively disruptive to society. 1. 2. 3.
