Math 101: A reading list for lifelong learners Ready to level up your working knowledge of math? Here’s what to read now — and next. Math 101, with Jennifer Ouellette First, start with these 5 books… 1. Here’s How Managers Can Be Replaced by Software Fortune 500 executives spend a fair amount of time thinking about how automation and the Internet are changing the nature of employment, but they rarely wonder how technology will have an impact much closer to home: on their own jobs. For the last several years, we have been studying the forces now shaping the future of work, and wondering whether high-level management could be automated. This inspired us to create prototype software we informally dubbed “iCEO.” As the name suggests, iCEO is a virtual management system that automates complex work by dividing it into small individual tasks. iCEO then assigns these micro-tasks to workers using multiple software platforms, such as oDesk, Uber, and email/text messaging. Basically, the system allows a user to drag-and-drop “virtual assembly lines” into place, and run them from a dashboard. But could iCEO manage actual work projects for our organization?

zerodha 4.1 Overview The initial three chapters has set the background on some of the basic market concepts that you need to know. At this stage it becomes imperative to address a very basic question – Why do companies go public? This Is Why Rich People Don’t Care About You Science shows poor people are more generous and wealth creates an ‘empathy deficit’ This intriguing video with UC Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner dispels many myths about the way humans are wired and explains the science behind empathy and kindness. Despite many of us believing in social Darwinism (the mistaken view that survival of the fittest translates into being naturally selfish; the most ruthless of us will achieve better success etc), Keltner puts the record straight: Darwin never said those things. In fact, Darwin specifically came to the opposite conclusion, underlining compassion and empathy as key functions of a successful society or group. Keltner talks about how scientific studies are proving this to be true, and points out that we think about other people at least 40% of the time. He goes on to explain how wealth affects our compassion levels, with some disturbing findings.
Bitcoin Bitcoins are created as a reward in a competition in which users offer their computing power to verify and record bitcoin transactions into the blockchain. This activity is referred to as mining and successful miners are rewarded with transaction fees and newly created bitcoins.:5–7 Besides being obtained by mining, bitcoins can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services. When sending bitcoins, users can pay an optional transaction fee to the miners. This may expedite the transaction being confirmed. According to a research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are between 2.9 million and 5.8 million unique users actively using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin. The number of active users has grown significantly since 2013 (there were 0.3 to 1.3 million unique users at the time).

news paper editorials There is a worrying turn of events in Jammu and Kashmir that must be of serious concern to the State and Central governments. The changing character of the insurgency is a warning signal that an urgent course correction is required in Kashmir to prevent the clock being set back by a decade. The election of a federal government with a decisive majority last summer, coupled with the installation of a BJP-PDP government in Jammu and Kashmir, had fuelled expectations that a firm political process would be initiated in the State. It’s time for New Delhi to get a grip on the situation. Of course, the current spurt in violence can be seen as a last-ditch effort by militants to cross to the Indian side of the Line of Control before winter snow shuts passes along the higher reaches.
World Bank wants water privatized, despite risks Humans can survive weeks without food, but only days without water — in some conditions, only hours. It may sound clichéd, but it’s no hyperbole: Water is life. So what happens when private companies control the spigot? What is Modern Monetary Theory, or “MMT”? By Dale Pierce. Cross posted from New Economic Perspectives Modern Monetary Theory is a way of doing economics that incorporates a clear understanding of the way our present-day monetary system actually works – it emphasizes the frequently misunderstood dynamics of our so-called “fiat-money” economy. Most people are unnerved by the thought that money isn’t “backed” by anything anymore – backed by gold, for example. They’re afraid that this makes money a less reliable store of value. And, of course, it is perfectly true that a poorly managed monetary system, or one which is experiencing something like an oil-price shock, can also experience inflation.

The 59-year-old put on a pair of blue jeans and a hooded coat before the sun was up, then went to his barn, turned on the lights, closed all the doors and windows, powered off the fans and cranked up the volume on the radio. He then shot each of his milking cows with a .22-caliber N1 carbine rifle, about 51 of them, between their horns and eyes, hitting their brains and killing them instantly. Pierson then sat down in a wooden chair with an upholstered seat, pulled a ski mask over his face, picked up a 12-gauge pump-action shotgun and shot himself once in the chest. Around 9 or 9:30, a truck driver from the Agri-Mark co-op arrived to collect milk from Pierson's tanks.
