    Why Capitalism Creates Pointless Jobs

    In the year 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that technology would have advanced sufficiently by century’s end that countries like Great Britain or the United States would achieve a 15-hour work week. There’s every reason to believe he was right. In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshaled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. In order to achieve this, jobs have had to be created that are, ef...

    Congress votes to allow states to drug-test the unemployed

    President Donald Trump is expected to sign off on a new law that will likely subject more unemployed Americans to drug tests before they can claim jobless benefits. The resolution — approved by the Senate on Tuesday after passing in the House in February — nixes a Labor Department regulation that limited how many unemployment-benefit applicants states could test for drugs. The old rule, implemented under former President Barack Obama, mandated that states could only test applicants if they w...

    Houston and Harris County are poised to decriminalize low-level possession of marijuana in a sweeping move that puts the area at the forefront of efforts in Texas to halt minor drug arrests that clog jails and courts. District Attorney Kim Ogg announced the new policy Thursday with Mayor Sylvester Turner, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo and Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. The policy, set to begin March 1, means that misdemeanor offenders with less than four ounces of marijuana will not be ar...

    Dem to unveil bill requiring a White House psychiatrist

    Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) reportedly plans to file a bill that would require the White House to have an in-house psychiatrist. “I’m looking at it from the perspective of, if there are questions about the mental health of the president of the United States, what may be the best way to get the president treatment?” Lieu told the Huffington Post. “We’re now in the 21st century. Mental health is just as important as physical health,” he added.

    Japan took in just 28 refugees in 2016, despite record applications

    Japan accepted just 28 refugees last year when a record number applied for asylum, a government document dated for release on Friday showed, throwing a spotlight on the nation's reluctance to accept foreigners. In 2016, 10,901 people sought asylum in Japan, up 44 percent from a year earlier, when the country accepted 27. Of the accepted refugees, seven were from Afghanistan, four from Ethiopia and three from Eritrea, according to the document seen by Reuters. It was not clear whether any Sy...

    Sick toddler needed a liver, so her new nanny donated part of hers

    Kiersten Miles had been nannying for only three weeks when she made the decision. The baby girl whom Miles had started caring for had a rare, life-threatening liver disease in which her liver’s central bile duct had been inexplicably destroyed and bile was building up into her liver, the baby’s mother said. The whites of her eyes were grey. Her skin was yellow. And some doctors predicted that the child might not live past her second birthday.

    Google has banned 200 publishers in the three months since it passed a new policy against fake news

    Google kicked 200 publishers off one of its ad networks in the fourth quarter, partly in response to the proliferation of fake news sites. The company banned the publishers from its AdSense network, an ad placement service that automatically serves text and display ads on participating sites based on its audience. The ban was part of an update to an existing policy that prohibits sites that mislead users with their content.

    All Dutch Trains Now Run 100% On Wind Power

They are now entirely powered by clean, renewable, wind energy. Dutch railway companies, of which NS is by far the largest, teamed up with energy company Eneco in 2015 to cut train ride emissions drastically.

    Sperm Whales Found Dead In Germany, Stomachs FULL Of Plastic And Car Parts

    In January, 29 sperm whales were found stranded on shores around the North Sea, an area that is too shallow for the marine wildlife. Only recently were details of the animals’ necropsy released.

    Aubrey Huff on his new book and the issues that almost killed him

    Aubrey Huff hadn’t reached rock bottom during a succession of losing seasons with the Rays and Orioles. He hadn’t touched down through his drug addiction and divorce proceedings. There was only the clawing that hastens a man’s descent. It wasn’t until Huff retreated to his closet again, dropped to his knees and put a gun to his head that he had truly gotten there. Orioles manager Buck Showalter often punctuates an amusing anecdote by saying, “It will all be in the book one day.” Huff...
