Artificial intelligence: ‘Homo sapiens will be split into a handful of gods and the rest of us’ If you wanted relief from stories about tyre factories and steel plants closing, you could try relaxing with a new 300-page report from Bank of America Merrill Lynch which looks at the likely effects of a robot revolution. But you might not end up reassured. Though it promises robot carers for an ageing population, it also forecasts huge numbers of jobs being wiped out: up to 35% of all workers in the UK and 47% of those in the US, including white-collar jobs, seeing their livelihoods taken away by machines.

Sustainable Fashion Needs A Consumer Revolution  Value Village in collaboration with EFW illustrates how the average North American consumer discards 81 lbs of textile waste annually. Back in 2014, barely a year after the collapse of the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, H&M took to Vancouver Eco Fashion Week (EFW) to promote their "Closing the Loop" initiative. With all the praise and controversy surrounding its sustainability efforts, I asked Pierre Börjesson, H&M's senior sustainability specialist, this burning question: To effectively reduce their impact, would H&M, the second-largest fast fashion retailer, consider switching to slow fashion? After some thought, Börjesson carefully responds, "What a fashion company [like H&M] must do is to produce the things that a market is expecting from that company," he explains, emphasizing that consumers' needs must still be met, even as companies strive to be sustainable. Börjesson's statement seems deflecting, but it also points out an uncomfortable truth.

Ethical shopping guide to Mobile Phone Handsets, from Ethical Consumer Mobile phones for dummies A basic mobile phone makes calls and texts.

Tax-avoidance Gibraltar firm behind anti-EU campaign group A leading campaign group seeking to take Britain out of the European Union was set up by an offshore company that offers tax avoidance services to “high net worth individuals”, the Observer can reveal. Leave.EU, which has been backed by the UK Independence party (Ukip) leader, Nigel Farage, and describes itself as “Britain’s fastest growing grassroots movement”, was incorporated in the United Kingdom as a wholly-owned subsidiary of a finance firm based in low-tax Gibraltar that specialises in “international wealth protection”. The offshore firm STM Fidecs boasts on its website of expertise in maximising tax efficiencies for entrepreneurs and expatriates and of “structuring international groups, particularly separating and relocating intellectual property and treasury functions to low- or no-tax jurisdictions”. The multimllionaire Ukip donor Arron Banks, who now owns Leave.EU, was until recently a “substantial” shareholder in STM Fidecs’s parent company.

Cruelty-free luxury is not an oxymoron From haute couture to high-end vacation packages, today’s vegetarian and vegan consumers aren’t willing to compromise quality in their quest for a kinder lifestyle. At Gunas New York, an upscale vegan accessories boutique, the name of the game is “High Fashion, Zero Cruelty.” Owner Sugandh Agrawal, a vegetarian since childhood, founded the upscale vegan accessories boutique in 2009. After earning her degree in industrial design, Agrawal said she had an “aha moment” when she interned for a handbag company. “I realized I’d found my calling,” said Agrawal, who would go on to pursue an advanced design degree at the Pratt Institute.

How to Fit Clothing in a Suitcase — How to Travel With Only a Carry-On I'm rarely able to travel with just a carry-on bag, which sucks for me because that means I have to pay at least $50 to check bags both to and from my destination, in addition to the price of my plane ticket. Womp. Part of that reason is because I'm not good at luggage Tetris and haven't mastered how to efficiently pack all the clothes I want to bring with me when I travel. But after seeing this viral video posted by Anacleto on Facebook that has more than 11 million views about how to fit almost two weeks' worth of clothing in a teeny-tiny carry-on, I might finally be able to save that money for something else.

Container Sizes of the 21 Day Fix System Portion control is a great way to lose weight, as evidenced by CDC research. I provided a basic overview of the container system in my review summary of the 21 Day Fix program, but some readers have been asking for more specific details, including a portion or calorie chart with exact measurements of each of these containers. Beachbody (the parent company of this system) aims to keep this information a trade -secret, and refuses to release the official sizes of each container. Fear not, as I happen to have a set of these containers on hand, and have carefully measured the capacity of each color for your reference. Textiles are the next frontier in recycling for cities looking to cut waste It started with a blue sock. I pulled it off and realized it had a big hole in the heel.
