AI technology is taking us to another level every day. It is now possible to work faster and be as accurate as ever. Digital processes have increased productivity without significantly increasing human labor.

Arthur puts it right when he said digital versions of human intelligence are increasingly replacing even those jobs once thought to require people. It will change every profession in ways we have barely seen yet.

Imagine you have a million and one iron rods to count and you want to be sure of its number, how many hours of your time would that take?

Until now, Facebook pays its new hires a bonus of up to $15,000 to live near its Menlo Park headquarters.

After Covid-19 broke out early last year, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg announced a plan to make 50% of its 48,000 workers across the globe work from home.

Many other companies also voice their opinion on remote work, what it brings to their table, what it means for employees, and people searching for jobs.

The founder and CEO of FirstbaseHQ, Chris Herd, for a year spoke to +2,000 companies about remote work and their plans.

Python is an amazing language. You don’t have to be a pro to do exciting things with it.

The language is perfect for automation. The first automation I tried was email automation. Then web scraping, and now WhatsApp messages.

In this article, you will learn how to automate WhatsApp messages with two lines of Python code.

You live in three moments. All the moments are interconnected, but one is the most important.

We often reflect on our past. How bad or well we’d spent it. There is nothing wrong with thinking about the good old days. It is thinking about how you should have avoided some happenings in the past that is unnecessary. It limits your potential and what you can achieve now.

Likewise, the future — we worry so much about it. We often forget it is not known yet and not in our hands.

Now listen.

The Past Is Gone Forever

Does going to a regular school matter now?

Beyond the bullying Elon Musk might have experienced at school when he was a kid, keeping his kids in a secretive school is a master move many people may not realize now.

In 2014, Musk created a private secretive school for his five kids. The school has no website, no phone number, or any other means to find out information about it, named Ad Astra — “to the stars”.

The school is set up in a way that allows his kids and a few other selected kids to learn and develop according to each child’s capacity and potential, “making all…

To find out the relationship between daily activities — like climbing stairs — and heart health exercise testing in a lab, researchers presented a study at the scientific congress of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging.

“The idea was to find a simple and inexpensive method of assessing heart health,” said Dr. Peteiro — a cardiologist at University Hospital A Coruña, Spain.

The study included participants with known or suspected coronary artery disease. They were asked to walk or run on a treadmill until they are exhausted. This was to measure exercise capacity using metabolic equivalents (METs).

“A MET is…

Tons of publications are accepting pitches from writers and paying them.

Finding the right contact to pitch your writing ideas is the first hurdle you have to jump. I’d guessed emails of editors to get the correct email to pitch an idea. That almost got my email banned.

Here are twelve publications calling for pitches from writers with their emails or how you can send your pitches to them.

I’ve seen call for pitches with ridiculous pay rates as low as $20 per 1000 words. I wouldn’t apply to such a publication. …
