I wasn’t going to write about Thursday’s “Day without Immigrants,” the illegal alien goof-off day, but the Mexican flag splashed across Friday’s San Jose Mercury was irresistible.
Apparently “Day without a Mexican” (film 2004, event 2006) was not inclusive enough for the expanded diversity of the 21st century. But at least “Mexican” (a foreigner) was a more […]
Hotel management has reacted positively toward the improved capabilities of robots suitable for their industry. A recent confab of the hospitality industry highlighted the new automation becoming available to perform more challenging tasks.
Robot bellhops are already in use in some Marriott hotels and elsewhere.
One of the machines in the pipeline is a robot maid, which […]
Pew Research has just published a brief report illustrating the clustering of large numbers of illegal aliens, titled 20 metro areas are home to six-in-ten unauthorized immigrants in U.S.. So it’s simple: there are millions of illegals and they bunch up together in unlucky (or liberal) cities.
The Pew map tells the overall story:
The list of […]
On Tuesday, Senators Tom Cotton and David Purdue introduced their bill that would end chain migration and the diversity lottery in order to make immigration less harmful to American citizens. As America’s Senator Jeff Sessions has declared, “Immigration should serve the national interest.”
The two senators held a press conference to discuss the legislation. The initial […]
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos certainly is the busy little billionaire, as shown by his latest project of an automated supermarket, where technology replaces human workers to save lots of money for the third-richest man in the world.
Does Bezos not understand that destroying jobs is a long-term loser for Amazon’s customer base? When workers are no longer […]
The automation juggernaut continues to crush jobs throughout the economy. Today’s example is the robot barista which prepares upscale caffeinated beverages without human workers.
In San Francisco, Cafe X’s robot coffee machine produces cappuccinos and lattes for sleepy iPhone users and others.
Interestingly, barista is a storied occupation for young people, and not always in a good […]
John Fonte has written a fine salute to Senator Jeff Sessions while the Alabama legislator awaits taking his position as Attorney General in the Trump administration. Hopefully, the rude Democrat logjam in the Senate will break up soon and allow this most honorable senator to advance to his next duty.
I will miss Sessions’ informative papers, critiques of legislation […]
President Trump’s flip-flop on DACA illegal aliens is very troubling. During a December 7 interview with Time magazine, he remarked:
”I want Dreamers for our children also. We’re going to work something out. On a humanitarian basis it’s a very tough situation. We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud. […]
Rep. John Lewis’ recent disparagement of President-elect Trump as not ”legitimate” has brought a minor flurry of histories of the congressman’s bogus racism accusations against political foes. Rush Limbaugh called him a Democrat Party hack and John Hinderaker defined the Georgia representative as ”an utter fraud” in a recent Powerline column.
One of the most effective […]
Tucker Carlson interviewed New York Times columnist Tom Friedman a few days ago about his new book, “Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations.” The discussion was about technology, which is the cause of the accelerations from the book title.
Carlson has a new prime-time show on Fox […]
Elections have consequences, so they say. The Associated Press reports that farmers in California fear that Trump’s promise of mass deportations means they won’t have enough cheapie Mexicans to pick the crops and are therefore investing in agricultural automation.
Actually, the narrative makes for a swell liberal sob story, but labor-saving farm technology has been improving […]
In Idaho, a researcher at the state Department of Labor looked into automation and how it may play out locally. His overall estimate is based on that of the Oxford analysts, that nearly half of state jobs are susceptible within a couple decades.
But there’s no mention that workers are shoppers and are the engine of […]
